Chic of the Week

Happy summer Friday!!

I am in a 100,000x better mood in the summer. It might just be because I have five iced coffees a day, but we’ll pretend it’s because I don’t have school! I know for sure it’s not the weather, because I do NOT like that. At least not 120 degree weather.

This week’s outfit of the week is a little different; I’m showing you guys my swim suit from Target that I wore in Hawaii! I got so many compliments on it & I find high waisted suits so flattering on every body type. It is so comfy & modest. I love swim suits that are not only cute, but comfortable. There is NOTHING worse than feeling like you are going to have a nip slip every second amiright ladies? Target also has really cute suits for cheap! I feel like there is no such thing as too many suits, so I try to buy a bunch of cheap ones. 

Speaking of Hawaii… the moment you all have been waiting for… my Hawaii travel diary is going up next week!! Make sure to check back for that 😉 In the meantime, check out my Hawaii Recap blog post!

Happy long weekend guys!!

P.S. Target is having a swim suit sale right now so hurry!! Literally suits starting at $12.

Happy Friday guys! 

This week’s outfit is super summery! This has been the first hot week in awhile, & I wasn’t really ready for it. Spring lasted 2 seconds! Anyway, I do love summer fashion because it is so easy to look good with no effort! I love the minimal style that summer brings. 

This romper is from the Kendall & Kylie collection at PacSun. I got it last summer so it’s not available anymore, but I’ve linked a similar one in the “Shop this Look” section. Don’t forget to check that out at the end of my Chic of the Week posts because that’s where you’ll find all of the outfit details! Also, PacSun is having a SALE right now! Get 20% off $100 with the code SPRINGSTYLE20. You don’t want to miss that deal! 

Next week is my finals week & then summerrrr! I don’t know if I told you guys, but I’m officially going to Hawaii! I’m so excited to sightsee & have a vacation, but also to see my brother! I might just have him teach me to surf. We’ll see. But with that being said, I won’t be blogging this next week because I have a lot of studying & packing to do! But I will come back with lots of good pictures in a couple of weeks! 

Good luck to those of you taking finals! Check out my post from Monday for some motivation 🙂

Happy Friday!

This week’s outfit is super summery! It actually wasn’t too hot this week, but I think it’s going to be in the 90’s in Phoenix next week :/ 

The top is from Forever21 & I saw it & loved the back detail. It has a slit so it’s somewhat open back, but you can still wear a bra with it! I bought it last semester, so unfortunately they don’t have the exact one anymore, but I will link something similar down below! I have talked about the shorts many times because I only have a couple of pairs & it’s hard for me to find some that I like. 

Again, another super short post! I just don’t have a lot of details to give you all, & have a case of “no motivation to do anything” since it’s the end of the school year. I just want summer!!

Happy Friday! 

Today’s outfit is actually courtesy of my mommy!! When I moved out for college, she moved some of her stuff into my closet & so when I came home & saw this dress, I had to have it!! It’s crazy how stuff comes back in style! I can’t tell you details on this exact dress, but long floral dresses & jumpsuits are in this season, so go snag one!

I know this is a short post, so I decided to add “12 Things”. I’ve thought about doing it once a month, just to keep you guys updated on my life. So here goes… 

1.) Only 3 more weeks of school left!! I am so excited for summer because…

2.) I have a lot of exciting travel plans! I don’t want to say anything yet because nothing is for sure, for sure, but it’s about a 98% chance I’m going to some pretty cool places. 

3.) I also got an internship for this summer & fall! My school requires us to do internships for credit (do other schools too??) & so I’m excited to get that going because…

4.) I’m almost halfway through college! When this semester is over, I will only have two years left. I’m not sure how I feel about that. 

5.) I got my first OFFICIAL blogger mail from Chic Wish List which has jewelry, clothing & chic purses. I especially like their jewelry, so you will see a post soon. 

6.) I mentioned this before, but I recently purchased Aspyn Ovard’s presets for my blog & Instagram! (Make sure to follow along here.) I already love how they make my feed look.

7.) My mom told me that my name was almost Aspyn, spelled the same exact way! She & my dad love the aspen trees of Colorado, so that’s where the inspiration came from 🙂 

8.) I’m thinking about switching over my blog to be self hosted. I’m coming upon the year anniversary of starting this blog, so I’m ready to make improvements!

9.) I want to get my hair cut again before summer, & I’m thinking about getting highlights. YAY or NAY? Please help!! 

10.) I have finally watched Friends all the way through & it’s so good! I am so attached to the characters. I’ve been told I’m most like Rachel & she’s my fav character! 

11.) I bought a new house plant that isn’t a succulent & I feel like it’s going to die & I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong! I water it & keep it in the sun for 4-6 hours per the directions, but it doesn’t look like it’s thriving. So any plant people, please help me. 

12.) I am watching The Office & it was just the fake fire scene & I’m dying laughing. Best scene in TV history ever.

Happy Friday!

It is already so hot here in AZ that I have been struggling to find something to wear everyday.  I will always love the warmth & Arizona is home to me through & through – but I can’t say I missed this weather :/

This cute dress is from Forever21. I love that store so much because it always has trendy seasonal wear for cheap, but I try not to go overboard because I know that’s bad for the environment to recycle clothing so much! But I do usually splurge on one must have. As soon as I saw this yellow dress I had to get it!! I am loving mustard yellow/yellow so much lately & thankfully, it’s in this season! I paired it with my brown sandals & a black sunhat.

I also went ahead & splurged on Aspyn Ovard’s Lightroom presets this week. I had been debating whether or not I wanted to spend money to get a filter, but I am in love with her feed & personality, so I decided to go for it! I’m trying to get really serious with my blog & have lots of plans to improve it this summer, so every little step I take will help me get to where I want to be!

Happy Easter weekend!

I don’t know about you guys, but Easter is actually one of my favorite holidays. I love the food & family time & of course, PEEPS & chocolate.

This week’s outfit of the week was taken last summer in Chicago. I love that city, & wish I were there right now! You can read all about my trip here! The spring semester cannot go by quick enough! I don’t think I’ll be visiting Chicago again, but I do have some exciting travel plans 😉

Anyway, I have done a previous outfit of the week on this same look, but I thought I would bring it back because it’s officially spring weather! I sometimes have a hard time figuring out what to wear when it’s so hot out, but a bodysuit is the perfect choice. It could even work for internships & jobs if you dressed it up with a blazer!

I hope to get some more outfit pictures taken this weekend so I can come back next week with some new inspiration for you guys! I have also added a “Shop this Look” section to the bottom of this post so you guys can get all the outfit details.

Have a great Easter weekend & don’t forget the reason for the season 😉

Happy spring Friday!!

This week’s look is what I wore to the Baked Bear blogging event (which you can read about here). I got lots of compliments on my shoes so I thought I would just share all of the outfit details.

The sweater is actually from my grandma, but the look is one that is very in & easy to accomplish. Go thrifting & buy an oversized sweater or, you could go to your grandma’s closet too! You guys will be shocked to know the shoes are also from her! She would be so happy to know that I love her style (& more evidence that I am, in fact, a 70 year old at heart). The shoes are nice because they are dressy, but not too dressy & have only a slight heel, so my feet weren’t killing me by the end of the night! I’ll link a similar pair here. The jeans are LC Lauren Conrad.

Have a happy weekend!!

Happy Friday guys!!

I know the picture is something a little different, but let me just tell you how hard it is to find time to take a picture during the week & someone who is willing to take it. I seriously need a personal photographer. I never really understood the importance of having one as a blogger, but I am slowly starting to get it. Self timers just aren’t as great. I’m going home soon so I’ll try to plan a lot of looks so I can build up my content for the following months so I don’t have to bother my roommates or not-so-Instagram boyfriend.

For outfit details, there isn’t much. I actually did a post last summer with this exact t-shirt dress from Forever21. But I’m just here to say that they are still in, & still the most comfy thing ever. It is slowly starting to become spring where I live, so I’ve been working on transition outfits & bringing back all the old sundresses & tank tops I missed oh so much.

Also, don’t forget to check out my first YouTube video that I posted on Monday! It’s all about my Spring Break 🙂

Chic of the Week

Hey guys!

This week was actually kinda cold so I was thrown off! I am trying to slowly transition my wardrobe from winter to spring.

I paired my brown corduroy skirt from Buffalo Exchange with a black turtleneck. I don’t know if I’ve ever talked about how much I love turtlenecks, but I do. And it’s funny because I hated them as a kid! But now I think they are so warm & cozy & flattering. And low-key, it’s perfect in the winter for when your makeup doesn’t match the rest of you because you’re not tan! I also got this beret as a birthday gift & it went so cute with this look! I feel so french when I wear it. The shoes are from Forever21, but boots would also look good. And the mug was just an added touch, but isn’t it so cute?! I am obsessed with Harry Potter. (Fun Fact!)

I am currently in California for my Spring Break! It’s kinda cold so I’m sad because I don’t know how much beach time I’ll have, but it’s still something new 🙂

It’s the weekend!

I am so super excited for this week’s Chic of the Week because I’m IN LOVE with these pictures!! I had a photoshoot a couple weeks ago & I have been looking for the perfect time to post these photos & it looks like that time is now. I have also been feeling sick again this week & it’s been super cold so I haven’t been dressing cute.

I recently did a Chic of the Week with this skirt from Buffalo Exchange, but it can be worn with many different things because it’s such a versatile color. I paired it with a white tee & a denim jacket. The t-shirt is from Forever21, per usual. I actually don’t know where I got the booties because I think they were a gift from a couple years ago. But I’ll link a similar pair here. I really like them because they are perfect for dressing up when it’s cooler outside because idk about you guys, but I have a hard time finding cute, comfy winter shoes! I usually live in my slip-ons. The denim jacket is such a staple in my closet, especially this time of year when it’s hot & cold at the same time! I like this one.

These photos were taken by my friend Victor Ren. He is from Vegas & takes super cool pictures! I was actually really nervous about this shoot because I feel awkward in front of the camera sometimes, but he didn’t pressure me to do anything & was super helpful! So if you’re local in Phoenix, hit him uppp. Make sure to check out his Instagram & give him some love. 🙂
