Chic of the Week

Hi guys! Happy weekend! 

I am super excited for this post because everyone needs this dress! I found it at Target & it was kind of an impulse buy. I didn’t need it, but I was browsing the clothes (bad idea) & had to try it on. As soon as I put it on, I knew I needed it. I also tried on a bathing suit that I thought was so cute & thought about getting every time I went to Target, BUT it just didn’t look good on me. Another fun fact: I hate trying on clothes! It’s such a chore. I was with my mom so she told me to try it on & I’m glad she made me because there are a lot of clothes that haven’t fit the best just because I refused to try them on. Learn from my mistakes. 

The story behind these pics is kind of funny! My roomie & I went thrift shopping (& I found $15 Levi’s!! Post coming soon…) & we saw these bushes on the side of the road so we decided to have a mini photoshoot! It was literally right by a main street & in a restaurant parking lot, but the lighting was so good. She’s also a photographer, so they turned out AMAZING. Any place is Instagrammable if you try hard enough!

Hey guys, happy Friday!!

This has seemed like such a crazy, long week! It kind of hit me how quickly summer is going & how much I have to do before school starts. I got stressed for awhile, but I’m trying to enjoy living stress free for as long as possible. Because we all know once the semester starts I’m a hot mess 🙂 Today I’m sharing another look from my staycation because I miss it so much!! I just want to sit by the pool with a shirley temple (or maybe something stronger) 😉 

So I actually got this dress at Ross. Before you all freak out, let me just tell you: Stores like Ross & TJ Maxx have so much potential, you just have to look. You can find some gems with enough patience. I’m also not going to lie to you all & say I’m wearing Gucci because we all know that’s not going to happen. Maybe someday I’ll pull up to a Prada storefront with my G Wagon, but today is not that day. So here I am, a fashion blogger, telling you it’s ok to shop at the cheap places.

Fourth of July is already coming up next week! I love dressing festive, so if you’re anything like me, this dress is perfect! I have linked something similar down below so you don’t have to go to your nearest TJ MAXX & raid the racks. And the shoes are the exact ones I have & I love them!!

Happy Friday! 

The week has seemed to fly by, which is great because now it’s the weekend! I got back from a staycation on Sunday, so that’s where this pic was taken. They had happy hour every night we were there with snacks (hummus!!) & free drinks. I got a shirley temple & I forgot how yummy they are. They’re also pink & aesthetically pleasing. 

So actually a funny story about this jumpsuit: I had been looking EVERYWHERE for a jumpsuit that fit me, but they all had like a foot of material dragging on the ground because I’m 5 foot nothing. So I was kinda sad, but kept looking. My roommate had this jumpsuit & brought it on our spring break trip & I thought it was so cute! Well, she accidentally put it in the dryer & it shrunk :/ so it didn’t fit her anymore & offered to give it to me. It was such a perfect fit that we agreed I could have it! So it all worked out. She got it at Forever21, & although I couldn’t find the exact one on their website, I linked something similar. But hurry, because it’s almost sold out!! 

I also linked a similar pair of shoes. The shoes are so comfy & they go with everything, even though they are blue, it’s a neutral in spring & summer. I also used to be OBSESSED with aviator sunglasses in high school. I thought they would make me cool. (They didn’t.) I linked a cheap pair of glasses for you guys too, in case you want to be a cool kid. 😉

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 😉

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 🙂
