Outfit of the Day: How to Style Sweatpants!?!

I'm back! <3 <3 <3 My sincerest apologies for not posting for quite a while, but Senior year has really taken a toll on me. Since I've last posted a lot has happened, so let's quickly catch up. I have officially committed to a college where I will proceed to study fashion design. I competed in DECA districts as well as DECA state. Also, Prom is next weekend! So expect photos of my dress, hair, etc. coming up soon! :) And lastly, drum roll please...I was voted Best Dressed in the Senior Hall of Fame. For those who don't know, which is all of you, my freshman year of high school I promised myself I would win , and I'm glad I kept my promise.

Recently, I've been really into cute, comfortable clothes. You know, the kind that just look effortless, but put together at the same time? I really just think an outfit that looks effortless and chic is much better than one that has been painstakingly planned.

I found these sweatpants at Sears as part of the Kardashian Kollection and absolutely fell in LOVE. I mean, just look at them.They're high waisted, comfy, and tight at the ankle, almost like a harem pant (heads up, I just bought a pair of harem pants, so get ready for another styling post). Although they were a tad bit pricey, since I bought them a few weeks ago, I've worn them numerous times and styled them differently every time. They are so universal.

Personally, I think sweatpants look super chic with a pair of cool loafers or a sweet pair of kicks (I just got a rad pair of Keds, check out my instagram). I've also been really loving the top knot with statement earrings. I think it adds to the super casual chic look. P.S. Isn't this shirt rad?

If you're a little iffy on styling sweat pants, I say go for it! It'll probably be the comfiest decision you've made all year, and you owe yourself a comfy day ;)

What I'm Wearing:
Sweatpants- Kardashian Kollection
Shirt- Billabong
Army Jacket- GAP
Scarf- H&M
Loafers- TopShop
Earrings- Kohls
Bracelets- Pacsun/Forever21
Crown Ring- Troll Bead

Fashion Stop-Motion Commercial

Hey guys! So for my Media Design class, I had to create a 30-second commercial supporting an in-school activity. This is what I created. This is my first time ever making any sort of video. For being completely unfamiliar with my new camera and movie editing system, I think I did a fairly good job executing my idea. I really wouldn't change a thing. This video originally contained 94 video segments that I individually cropped and sped up to fit in the time limit and with the music. I had to crop it down to about 60 video segments because of time restrictions. Overall, this took me about 12 hours to completely finish.

If you like it please share it with your facebook, twitter, tumblr...any social media! I put a lot of hard work into it and I would really like it to reach a large audience!

P.S. I now have a youtube. I may possibly start creating other fashion related stop-motions on there. Subscribe to my channel to stay updated! love you all :)

Everything I am wearing today is new except for the scarf. I'm so thankful for having the opportunity to go shopping for three days in Chicago and embraced every moment of it. I really love big cities.

Ghost of Outfit of the Day's Past (HAPPY HOLIDAYS)

Happy Holidays! My sincerest apologies for abandoning my blog for a short while. I have been celebrating the holidays with family and have been vacationing in Chicago. I really hope everyone has a had a wonderful last few weeks. 

I haven't had much time to blog or take pictures recently so these are some photos that I have been meaning to post but haven't gotten around to. They are from about two weeks ago. I decided to go out and do some photography before heading off to work. I apologize for the poor lighting and what not. However, GOOD NEWS! For Christmas I received a new DSLR from Santa. Hopefully, having a higher quality camera will enhance my blog even more. I can't wait to go out today and play around with it. I may or may not do a Christmas/Chicago haul. We'll see where life takes us.

 Pretty much this whole outfit is from American Eagle. I don't even shop there. How unusual.

What I'm wearing:
Cardigan- AE
Gold Bangle- Charming Charlies
Watch- Relic


P.S. A really great Christmas present would be to help me reach 2000 views. We have less than 500 to go! Please share my blog with facebook, friends, twitter, pinterest, tumblr, instagram, ANYTHING! Much love! XOXO

The Most Beautiful Music in the World

I find often times, what music you listen to says a lot about your character. What the music I listen to says about me, I'm not quite sure. But, I do know that every song listed here is absolutely stunning and should be given the chance of becoming one of your favorite songs as well. If you are to choose which music video to watch, may I direct you to "Ride" by Lana Del Rey. It is not as much of a music video as it is an artistic compilation of cinematography and poetic words, then followed by the actual song. It really is an experience in itself and it's one that I keep going back to.
Also, I have been absolutely obsessed with Nick Drake. Although he has passed, I think his music has a beauty that transcends time. Literally my favorite 1970s folk artist (next to Vashti Bunyan). If you like Nick Drake, I suggest you listen to his song "Pink Moon" because that is also one of my favorites.

If you have any favorite artists or songs that are similar to these, feel free to let me know! I'm constantly on the hunt for new music.

Outfit of the Day: Faux Fur and Coral

 Good Evening! Winter is quickly approaching and I really am dreading the arrival of the first snowfall. Although I do not hate snow, it is quite a nuisance when I love to take pictures down by the river.
 This was my outfit from Sunday. It was such a lovely day and I really could not pass up the opportunity to go take some photos. You can't see her, but my puppy, Coco, accompanied me and was sitting behind the camera. She loves rolling in the leaves. :)
 Upon taking pictures, I went to a coffee shop downtown with some very good friends to work on a school project. Although I am not much of a coffee drinker, I did manage to spoil myself with a couple cups of hot chocolate and a really delicious sandwich.
I don't know about everyone else, but I am extremely excited about Black Friday. I haven't shopped in a few weeks for preparation. I plan on going out at midnight. So excited! Hopefully, I will be able to get all of my Christmas shopping completed, so in December I won't have to frantically hunt down gifts.

I will most likely be posting a haul post after black Friday, so stay tuned! Typing "stay tuned" reminded me of playing "Nancy Drew: Stay Tuned for Danger"...anyone else obsess over Nancy Drew games? No? No one? Okay.

P.S. If I don't upload a post before, I hope everyone has a spectacular Thanksgiving!
What I'm Wearing:
Dress: Target
Sweater: Old Navy (gift)
Leggings: HUE
Boots: Payless
Watch: Relic
Earrings: Target
Skull Bracelet: Boutique in Chicago
Turquoise Ring: New York
Kate Middleton Replica Ring: Gift
Locket Ring: Icing

Some Blog Changes

As you may have noticed, there is now an Instagram tab added to the top of my blog! Now, all of my photos taken on Instagram will all appear under this tab, so even when I do not upload a blog post there will always be new pictures being added!
 I believe that by adding this tab, you will get a more accurate view into my everyday life! I do use my Instagram as somewhat of a fashion diary, along with nature photography and little snippets of my everyday life.

Here are some of the photos I took for a recent Photography project!
If you guys would like me to also connect my twitter so that my tweets are also sent to my blog, let me know! And don't forget to check back often to see what's going on in my everyday life!
If you have an Instagram, Follow me!!
