Chic of the Week + Life Update

Hi good morning, happy Friday!!

I’m back with another outfit of the week! I actually have a non-Fabletics outfit to share today, but don’t fret, there are more hahaha 

Lately I have been LOVING a good graphic tee. They are just so easy to style & I feel like they really show someone’s personality too, which I love. A walking billboard for all the things that make me happy! This cute tee is from Thread Tank & I had such a hard time picking one out because they have so many cute options! The shirt itself is so soft & fits just right. I hate walking around looking like a 12-year-old boy. The pants are thrifted Levis that I’ve talked about a couple of times because they are my best thrift find to date! The shoes are from Target & I’m convinced I can’t go a day without wearing something from there! All the items are linked at the end of this post. 🙂

I thought this would be a good post to give a little life update in since I’ve been MIA. That always happens at the end of the school year. I say I’m going to take a week off & it ends up being like a month. Ooops. But it’s officially summertime so I’m hoping to have more consistent content & just take more time for my blog!

I think part of the reason I just kinda stopped there for a second is that I am/was feeling uninspired. It can be so hard to constantly have to “keep up.” With something like blogging & content creation, there is so much pressure to work, work, work because you won’t get anywhere if you don’t put in the time & effort. I was just burning out & uninterested, especially with school. This isn’t to make excuses, but this is more just me being honest. 

I’ve realized that I have been feeling uninspired because I’ve been trying too hard. It was difficult for me to accept that because I never thought of myself as a wanna-be. But it hit me that sometimes I don’t want to share about makeup, or fashion or anything like that, I’d rather just write! About my feelings! Because feelings are great! But forreal, my passion for writing began when I started journaling & just writing about my day & what was on my mind. I started this blog so that I could share those thoughts & I realized I’ve become just another lifestyle blog! And there’s nothing wrong with that because I truly love all things lifestyle & the different aspects of it interest me, but I also sometimes just want to VENT to the internet. Hahah no not really, this is not a diary. But I guess I’m just saying I’m going to start writing about whatever the HECK I want to write about, whether that’s skincare, or another Fabletics outfit, or how I’ve been feeling less than confident. I want to inspire people because I love helping others, & so I think by sharing my struggles or even just talking about the things that bother me, more people will be able to relate. We love a relatable gal! 

Anyway, if you’re still reading this, thank you!! It truly makes me so happy when people actually read what I write & enjoy it. I hope to continue to create content that inspires & entertains. 🙂

Chic of the Week

Happy Friday!

This week’s Chic of the Week is super casual & perfect for errands or a casual day with friends. I didn’t even need makeup to finish this look! I went to a new restaurant & got my nails done with my roommates on Monday since we didn’t have school. If you’re ever in Scottsdale, I definitely recommend Farm & Craft! It was so delicious & they offer a lot of great vegetarian/vegan options, which I love because that can be hard to find.

The top is a black turtleneck from who-knows-where. I actually got it from my grandma (proof that I’m 20 going on 60) because she practically had one in every color of the rainbow! I get a lot  of questions about it though, so who’s the real winner here… 😉 The pants are LC Lauren Conrad & the shoes are from Forever21. I talked about them in last week’s post as well. I got the sunglasses awhile ago when aviators were really in. (Are they still?)

I’ll be spending the rest of my weekend in bed recovering from the flu :/ not how I wanted to spend my 20th birthday!! But this year is all about being positive, so I’m going to make the most of it & plan something really epic for when I feel better!

P.S. I don’t really love wine, but I love pizza.

Happy weekend!

This week felt kinda short because of the three day weekend so that was nice! School is still stressful, but I survived another week so.

This week’s outfit of the week is super casual (I feel like I say that all the time?? But I like to wear comfortable stuff because it makes me feel so much better.) This is basically my day-to-day look, especially during the week when I have class. If I’m not in a look like this, I’m in a dress because they are so easy.

I’ve talked about these pants before, but they are from Old Navy & have a high waist which is the only kind of pant I like to wear. No butt bearing for me please! I don’t remember where I got the top from because I’ve had it for awhile now… I didn’t use to like stripes because I thought I didn’t look good in them, but now I think they’re pretty cute & flattering. My shoes are Steve Madden & I want to get more like them because I’m loving the slip-on style.

I’m about to go do some retail therapy so you guys will hopefully start to see some new things here soon…

This wall is about to be the background for every single one of my pictures… it’s right by my apartment & matches my theme. Win-win.

It’s Friday!

Today’s outfit of the week is another look from vacation. I like to call it my “travel outfit” because it’s super comfy for long car rides, but can be turned into something casual for stops or last minute family visits. I don’t know about you guys, but when I travel I want an outfit that is comfortable, but that I can also turn into something nice because changing in the car is hard!

This mural is on the campus of Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. There was a tunnel filled with positive graffiti & art that you could walk through. I thought it was a pretty cool idea…

I’ve been slacking on the blogging & posting because I literally feel like I’ve been running these past two weeks to get everything done. But I’m all moved into my apartment & it’s slowly coming together. My roommates already feel like family & we have so much fun together, I honestly forget to post on Instagram & check my blog. But I’ll focus more, I promise 😉

I have also been trying to figure out future posts & get them ready to go because homework will soon consume my life… I want to keep the posts steady & relevant so please, please let me know what you like or want to see more of! I got a lot of positive feedback on my last OOTW, & that’s what makes it all worth it. 🙂 So feel free to comment or DM me because I would love to chat & know what you think!

For this week’s outfit, I paired a light pink bodysuit from Forever21 with shorts from H&M that I’ve talked about a bunch because I actually love them. I wasn’t sure how to feel about the bodysuit trend, but this one is super comfy & you don’t have to worry about it becoming untucked (idk how to describe it) from your shorts, like you would a t-shirt or tank. Instead of  a bodysuit, you could even wear a one piece with shorts for the beach or beginning-of-the- school-year pool parties. I opted for white Keds because I was exploring the Windy City (expect a blog post with lots of pics!!), but I think sneakers are the best shoe for this look. But feel free to play around with it! That’s why I love fashion; there are no rules.

Have a great weekend & don’t forget to read my last post raving about my favorite planners!
