Chic of the Week + 12 Things

Happy Friday!

I’ve been off my game lately in terms of blogging! School is taking all my time and energy lol but I’m working on having a daily blogging schedule so I can keep up.

This week’s outfit of the week is one of my favorites! I wore it when I went to The Nutcracker, but I’ve also been able to wear it to work. The dress is actually thrifted, but the style is so in & easy to pair with a sweater & boots in the cooler months. The leather jacket is from sooo long ago! I remember in high school I wanted one so bad because they were super cool. I’ve had a hard time figuring out what to pair it with because I’ve always seen leather jackets as “edgy” haha & that’s not my style! But with this dress it’s cute & chic! The shoes are my most worn pair of shoes ever! If you buy slip-ons, there is no going back. 

A quick 12 THINGS because it’s been a minute! 

1.) I’m finally 21!! I had the best birthday celebration last weekend & I can’t wait to buy wine whenever I want haha

2.) I got an espresso machine for Christmas!! Seriously the best thing ever. Now I only need three coffees a day instead of five!

3.) I only have 3 semesters of college left! 

4.) I am doing a super exciting campaign with… Fabletics!! I can’t wait to share the looks they sent me. SO cute. 

5.) I’m also doing a couple other campaigns currently! I am so grateful & excited to be working with all of these brands, but I gotta tell you, deadlines on deadlines! It never ends. 

6.) I’ve started meditating every morning & it is the best thing I’ve done for myself! The app is called Simple Habit, & there are a ton of free meditations on there. I never thought I was one for meditation because I am constantly thinking & go, go, go, but that’s why it’s been so great! It forces me to slow down & take time for myself, even if it’s just 5 minutes. 

7.) I got a fishy for my birthday! His name is Francisco. He’s a blue beta & I’m already so attached. I might be biased, but I think he’s the cutest fish ever. 

8.) I found the best self tanner! It’s St. Tropez tanning mousse. I saw all these bloggers & YouTubers trying it & I was desperate. Kinda pricey, but if you’re anything like me, it will be worth it because you’ll go from a 3 to a generous 7 with the swipe of a mitt hahah

9.) I’m watching The Bachelor this season & wow. I’m obsessed with these random girls falling in love with one guy. It’s so funny. Quality television. 

10.) I’m almost done with Grey’s Anatomy! I’ve seriously been watching it since about May hahah I’m going to watch You when I’m done because I’ve heard it’s crazy.

11.) I finally read the book You are a Badass. It was sooo good! The kind of book that made me want to bookmark every page because everything was so motivational.

12.) I am going to Hawaii for spring break!! I am so excited! Ever since going last summer I’ve been itching to go again. One of my favorite places for sure.

Chic of the Week

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!!

Chic of the Week

Happy Friday! And February! I can’t believe January is already over, but at the same time, it felt like a super long month.

Last week I went to an ice cream pop-up museum in Scottsdale & it was the cutest thing ever! I’ve always wanted to go to the real one in LA so when I saw one in AZ I got super pumped! They give you free ice cream samples as you go around to the different “exhibits” & you can take all the pictures you want.

Obviously I knew I would be taking a bazillion pictures because I paid $25 to get good Instagram content for the year. I actually got the brown corduroy skirt I’m wearing from Buffalo Exchange, which is kinda like a thrift shop where you can take your old clothes & trade them in & stuff. I got super lucky because it’s always a scavenger hunt with places like that, but I’ve been wanting a skirt like this for awhile & it was even my right size! It was meant to be. The sweater is from JCPenny & it’s one of my go-to’s. Unfortunately, I won’t be wearing it much longer because it is literally already hot here in AZ. I am not about it. So I’m sorry if my Chic of the Week’s seem irrelevant to some of you lucky people who are actually in the right season! The shoes are of course my mules from Forever21. Link to them in this post.
