Chic of the Week

Happy Friday!

First of all, I am officially done with my first semester of sophomore year! It’s honestly going by so fast & I don’t know how to feel about it. I spent all day yesterday just relaxing & I’m already bored… but I have some fun things planned for this month & I’d rather be bored than have five deadlines!!

This week’s outfit of the week was taken when I was home for Thanksgiving. I paired my LC Lauren Conrad jeans (featured in last week’s Chic of the Week) with a top from Aéropostale that I got when I was probably 12, but it still fits. I put my grey cardigan from Forever21 overtop of it all to make the look more winter-weather appropriate. I’m wearing one of my favorite pair of shoes, my black mules from Forever21.

If you’re still prepping for finals, check out my post from Monday!

Happy December!

I’m glad it’s finally considered socially acceptable to watch Christmas movies in front of the tree with hot chocolate because that’s what I’ll be doing all weekend! I have finals next week & should probably study, but I have all of Monday to do that… I’m planning a post for Monday all about how to get through finals week so make sure to check back!

As for my outfit, this is what I wore to Friendsgiving this year. I got the top last year at an end of season sale, but it’s from the LC Lauren Conrad collection. It is so pretty & not too hot, so it’s perfect for this winter!! I paired it with my LC Lauren Conrad jeans & nude booties that I wear with absolutely everything.

P.S. Don’t forget to check out my post from earlier this week where I give a little life update 🙂

Happy Friday!

It’s almost Thanksgiving! Is it just me or has this month gone by super, super fast?? I’m happy though because I am ready for this semester to be over!!

I’ve been kinda sick this week (for the third time this month…) so I’ve been really lazy in my outfits. I pulled this one together kinda quick before going on a study date yesterday. My class was cancelled so I decided to make the most of it! I found a super cute coffee shop right across from where I live. I think I’m about to spend the next few weeks there…

Anyway, for outfit details: I got the sweater a few years back when I was still in high school at an end of winter sale or something. It’s super soft & warm, but not too hot for 80 degree winters haha. I think I got the leggings at Kohls because I love how cheap & comfy they are! And the shoes are from Forever21. I can’t remember if I’ve talked about them yet, but they’re super versatile & easy to slip on as you’re running out the door. But they still look like you tried.

My roomies & I are hosting Friendsgiving today & I’m sooo excited. I love any excuse to have all my favorite people in one place 🙂 It’s our first time cooking a turkey though so wish us luck!!

Happy Friday!

This week’s outfit is something I put together last minute before class, but it actually turned out cute! The top is one of my favorites because it can be worn off the shoulder or just as a regular blouse, so I can dress it up or down. I got the pants awhile ago & don’t normally like how they fit, but this day, I liked them hahaha. The shoes are from lucaandgrae.com & are a super basic color & style so they can be worn with pretty much anything!

I’m actually going to California for a quick trip this weekend to watch ASU beat UCLA 😉 I’m super excited! We have a few hours before the game starts to hang out & explore so if you guys know of any cool things to do near UCLA, let me know please!

P.S. I’m also planning a few photo shoots here soon hopefully, so you guys can start seeing cool pictures instead of these boring layouts!

Chic of the Week: Halloween Edition

Guys! It’s finally been cool out! And, it’s officially Christmas time because Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is just pre-Christmas in my book… I think my roomies & I are gonna put up our tree this weekend! But, I wanted to show you all my Halloween costume for this year before my blog gets taken over by winter wear!

I was a lifeguard this Halloween & I know that’s pretty basic, but I was actually a lifeguard at one point in high school so I think it’s actually pretty relevant. AND I already had the stuff to make it work. I was also Pam from “The Office” & Jake dressed up as Jim so that was pretty cute too.

I hope you all had an awesome Halloween! I actually went trick or treating for the first time in a long time & yeah I know, I’m almost 20, but who doesn’t want free candy?? P.S. I know this isn’t exactly “chic” lol so it doesn’t fit with “Chic of the Week”, but I thought you guys might want to see it! Next week you can expect a cute winter outfit because it’s finally cooling off in Phoenix! Wahoo!

Happy Halloweekend!

This week’s look shares a piece from last week’s outfit: this denim skirt from Forever21. I’m trying to dress like fall despite the 90 degree weather, so I paired some booties with a yellow shirt from Aéropostale. (Ignore how frumpy it looks; I promise it didn’t look that way on me!) I actually got a lot of compliments on this look, which always brightens my day 🙂 I think one of the best compliments someone could give me is that they like my style!!

Anyway, I have a busy, but fun weekend ahead! Enjoy your halloweekend & be safe guys 😉 And don’t forget to check out my last post for an easy & festive DIY!

Happy fall Friday!

This week’s outfit is one of my favorites. If I’m being honest, I kind of put it together last minute for class, but I really like how it turned out. I even put a cardigan on over it because my classrooms are freezing.

I got the top from Aeropostale a long time ago when it was the best place ever. There was an outlet where I used to live so I was that 6th grade girl who rocked the Aeropostale graphic tee’s. (You know what I’m talking about.) But this top still fits because let’s be honest, I haven’t grown much since the 6th grade either :/ The denim skirt is from Forever21 & I got it last year. It is super soft & not too tight & uncomfortable like some skirts. I forget if I’ve talked about the shoes yet, but they are from Luca+Grae, one of my fav online shops ever. Seriously, I want everything because it is just my style.

In other news, Halloween is next weekend! I’m so excited. My friend & I are dressing up like Marilyn Monroe & Audrey Hepburn. It’s going to be so cute! I’ll have to post some pics 😉

It’s Friday the 13th… not cool.

This week’s outfit is the first fall look I’ve talked about & I’m sooo excited!

The top is from Forever21 & I got it last season. Not-so-funny story; I bought a sweater just like this one at Forever21 & then after the first few washes, it got a huge hole in the front! I thought about trying to sew it, but I didn’t want it to look ghetto, so I just ordered another one. Not gonna lie, I liked the first one better! It was softer & was kind of cropped, but loose, so it was perfect for Phoenix winters. But I guess that’s what I get for shopping at Forever21… I’m still a frequent customer. And it was only like $10 so I’m not that bothered, but still!! Anyway, this one is soft & cozy too! I’ll link a similar one down below. The pants are from the LC Lauren Conrad collection. These are actually a recent purchase because I needed new jeans! They’re honestly kind of big, but that’s the style. I’ve talked about the booties I’m wearing before, but I’ll link a similar pair down below. To find the pants I’m wearing, check out my OOTW from a  few weeks ago.

This was a short week for me because it was my fall break! Kinda ready for the semester to be over though…

Sweater – Forever21

Jeans – OOTW

Booties – Nordstrom

Here’s a picture of me trying to bring back my gymnast days… good thing I retired.

Happy weekend!

I’ve decided to do a few things differently with my outfit of the week: one, I’ll post some outfit pics like this one because it’s hard to get someone to take my pic every week so this way I don’t always have to depend on others & worry about not having a look every Friday! And two, I’m going to start calling it ‘Chic of the Week’ because why not?! Cute & unique.

This week’s look is a top from Charming Charlie that I got last year. It is a perfect transition top for fall because it’s light, but also has sleeves. And when you live in a place that is still 90 degrees in October, but you still want to dress cute like the rest of the country, you pull out a top like this. The bell sleeves with a slit are really in right now too! So although my exact top is probably not available anymore, you can find a similar one 🙂 My jean shorts are from H&M which you guys should know already because I talk about them all. the. time. I’m not sure where my sandals are from because I think they’re a few years old. You could also pair this look with ankle boots or flats.

In other news, I’m currently en route to a cooler place for Fall Break! I’m going to spend time with my boo & I think we’re gonna go to the Grand Canyon! I’ve been there once & he’s never been soooo we’re gonna go check it out. I also might do a little Fall Break Recap on here if I end up doing enough cool stuff 😉

OOTW

This week’s outfit of the week is actually from a shoot I did last summer! I never shared these pics & this is ~hopefully~ the last of the hot weather, so I thought it would be appropriate to share one more summer look before it’s all sweaters & boots! There is a super cool artsy district near where I live & it’s perfect for photo shoots. Also, Flashback Friday to my long hair!!

I don’t know the details of this outfit because if I’m being honest, I think I gave the shorts to Goodwill & went & bought that new pair I have that I talk about all the time. (Find the details here.)

But here is some photo shoot inspiration! Whenever people ask me how I am comfortable in front of the camera (trust me, I still feel awkward a lot of the time) I tell them to make sure to wear something they’re comfortable in because that will make the modeling part 10x easier! I had a lot of fun with this shoot because I wasn’t worried about a wardrobe malfunction or anything like that! And make sure to shoot with a photographer you’re comfortable with & knows your style. Just some tips 🙂
