Wishing for Paradise


There's less than a month of summer vacation for me before I embark on another chapter in my life, so I've been trying to take advantage of all the shorts, bright colors, and open-toe shoes I own. I recently purchased these amazing shoes that I am obsessed with! I paired them with this lightweight, fluorescent top and crocheted shorts that I've had for quite a while. 

I feel like I always seem to incorporate some sort of crochet or lace piece into my ensembles, but I've found them to be trendier substitutes for basic, solid pieces. The crochet detailing adds texture and dimension, making it look like you put more effort into an outfit than you really did. Thank you to Joanna aka the Tecnotik for taking my pictures and helping me deal with the all creepy male passersby during our little photoshoot. And thank you to all who have checked out my newest post!

Highlight of the Year


Black has been my color of choice for the past year or so, but this fluorescent yellow will always be dear to my heart. It holds residency at raves, but it isn't typically featured on a daily basis anywhere else. I love incorporating it into my outfits because the color itself is unexpected. It practically forces everyone's eyes to be on you, so I definitely feel a sense of confidence when wearing it. When attempting to wear fluorescents on a daily basis, I would say to try to stick with simple silhouettes and choose accessories that don't overpower your fluorescent piece. 

So, alas, I've decided to publicize a little something I've been working on, which is a Summer Lookbook video! I'd appreciate it so much if you guys could check it out at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n30pyrFMr7Q (or it will be posted at the end of this blog post). I had a blast filming and editing it. It was really fun being able to incorporate my love for both music and fashion. If you like the video, it would be awesome if you could share it with your friends and family. Thank you for checking out my blog & see you soon!
