An Anti-Valentine’s Guide to Fashion

An Anti-Valentine’s Guide to Fashion

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

On this week’s edition of ‘Valentine’s Obsessed’ posts I’ll be sharing with you all some looks you can wear if you aren’t totally into the season, but also low-key still want to acknowledge that February is still a thing.

I think you can find a look in here for anyone, whether you have a S.O. or not. There is casual, cool, and chic all bundled into one here! And to be totally honest, you will definitely see me rocking the leggings and sweater look to bed on more than one occasion this month!

So enough of the chit chat.. let’s get into it!

Look #1 — My Date is Me, My Couch, and an XL Delivered Pizza


I love that this is an outfit you can wear anywhere (except maybe not somewhere you have to be majorly decked out for). But seriously, you can run to the store, to class, to bed, to the gym, ANYTHING in this look! Is it the most chic thing in the world?? No. But it’s cute, snuggly, and also serving major truth… In other words? Pizza, always.


I also love that this is a look that you can make your own with so many different types of shoes. Obviously here I paired it with some Dr. Martens and some cabin socks, but it would work with sneakers or Uggs too! And yes, I did just say Uggs.. I know they’re total space shoes but I can’t deny their convenience sometimes!


My sweater is from Wildfox (seriously, it’s my favorite thing ever) and is an XS.. it’s totally huge though so maybe keep that in mind if looking for one for yourself! And my leggings are Lululemon (: I would definitely recommend!

Look #2 — In Your Dreams


This is another outfit that is serving truth but also in a cool girl way. I love that the jumper is baby pink and has a peplum, but then is contrasted by the text saying something a little more edgy. I think that it’s really cool paired with black ripped jeans and the pink shoes really tie the whole look together!

This is another one that you can pretty much wear any time. It’s like you really put minimal effort into your look but still look put together!


My jumper is from a UK company called Lazy Oaf. They are seriously so unique and cool, and if you have never heard of them or checked out what they have to offer, I would DEFINITELY recommend doing so! Their sizes tend to run big, but for the price and individuality this brand is a must!

My jeans are from Topshop and my shoes are Adidas, both of which are staples whether in the month of February or not (:

Look #3 — Burgundy


This is for the girls out there that just live for a skirt/dress moment. I love that this is a super cute, but simple outfit and it’s versatile in so many ways! You can add tights, boots, sneakers, heels, etc. and make it a totally new/spiced up look!

The colors in this one aren’t ‘In Your Face’ Valentine’s, but still stay true to the reds and whites of the season (:

It’s a very crisp, classic, and wonderful outfit idea that you could wear seriously all. day. long. It’s THAT comfy!


Both the sweater and skirt are from American Apparel (my tried and true), and my shoes are my classic white vans (which spoiler alert, are not white anymore).

And that concludes this week’s ‘Anti (but still kind of pro) Valentine’s Day Lookbook’! Again, these are all looks I can see myself wearing all month long! And the best part about all of them is that they can easily transition into something totally different just by switching out a piece or two!

What did you guys think about another one of these short little outfit posts? I love getting to show off things from my closet and give some inspiration to others as well! Let me know in the comments below!

I hope you are all having a fabulous week (and if you’re on the East coast, are maybe enjoying a snow day too!)!

Next week I have something special planned and it MIGHT involve some Fifty Shades.. but until then,

OOTD: 3 Valentine’s Day Dress Ideas

OOTD: 3 Valentine’s Day Dress Ideas

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I hope you are all finding yourself happy and healthy on this hump day! Today on the blog I wanted to share three dresses I styled for a cute Valentine’s Day pick me up. In case you didn’t know.. I actually LOVE Valentine’s (hence the early holiday post)! I just wanted to give you all some inspo for whether you’re just trying to look like you have your life together during the day or need some day to date night inspiration. Either way, I think these outfits will work for you! And that being said, let’s just get right on into it!

Up first is this classic (but edgy) red and black combo! It doesn’t scream Valentine’s Day fanatic when you pair it with a cool jacket, but could easily transition into a more feminine night time outfit without it.

I paired it with a cute pair of boots but it could really go with anything! Heel? Flats? Sneakers? You name it! And that’s something I love so much about this one. It’s just so versatile (:

Unfortunately I can’t say much for the outfit details, but the dress is one I bought forever ago from American Apparel, the shoes are from ASOS, and the jacket is from Express! All very affordable options that will keep for months if not years!


Next up is kind of what I like to refer to as the ‘Cool girl celebrates V-day’ look (: Like she doesn’t care about the mush and gush, but also totally does. It’s like she asked herself the question: ‘How can I indulge my guilty pleasure but still keep up my street cred?’. Haha, I’m joking of course but that’s how I picture it going down.

I love the crushed velvet and that the color is much deeper than a traditional cherry red or a bubblegum pink.

Of course you can also make this more feminine with a pair of black tights and some peep-toed heels, but I love pairing this dress with platforms. I think it really drives home the edgy vibe and whether you’re going out with friends or your S.O., everyone knows you’re a force to be reckoned with!

Again, these were items I’ve purchased quite awhile ago so the exact thing isn’t out there, but the dress is from Forever 21 and my boots are from H&M (both a total steal, seriously this outfit was probably less than $50. Bless.)!


And last (but obviously not least) is a lighter take on Valentine’s Day.

I seriously am obsessed with this one. The dress is super feminine and paired with the pink jacket, still manages to feel delicate. I think the jacket adds a really nice element. It doesn’t overpower the look or make you look tough, but actually brings to light a softer side.

I love that this is a look you can pair with sneakers too because although you could totally rock this on a night out, it brings a casual-ness to the outfit and is something I could totally see myself rushing off to class in!

Again, the dress was from American Apparel, the jacket is from ASOS, and the shoes are my tried and true Vans (seriously, you’ll see these in everything I wear) (:


And that’s the end of the show! A short one this week, I know.

I really hope you enjoyed this super short and sweet little Valentine’s themed OOTD! Like I said, I really enjoy this holiday and wanted to put together a few (kind of stereotypical) looks!

What are you planning to rock this February? Let me know what you think of these looks in the comments below and..

Until next time,

NYE OOTN: Blue Velvet (+ My 3 New Year’s Resolutions)

NYE OOTN: Blue Velvet (+ My 3 New Year’s Resolutions)

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I can never believe the next few days when all of the preparation and anticipation is just, done, like why can’t Christmas come every month, right??

But now, down to business. I wanted to show you all a quick little ‘Outfit of the Night’ to inspire any of you that might still need an outfit for New Year’s Eve. And, if you’re interested, stay tuned until the end to see my 3 (actually attainable) New Year’s Resolutions!



Normally, I just have a pretty casual night in on New Year’s with a few friends, but this year, I’ll be totally honest.. I’m just chilling with Sethy and stuffing my face with lots of food.

But for those of you going out and ringing in the New Year with a big ol’ celebration, this outfit is the idea for you!

It’s edgy, festive, AND super cute. What more can you really ask for? Oh, actually it’s even a romper so you don’t have to worry about flashing anyone at any time in the night! (: Seriously, it doesn’t get much better.


I picked this blue velvet romper up from Urban Outfitters a few weeks ago when they were running one of their sales. Not only that, but the romper itself was already discounted and that’s what I like to refer to as a super sale, yes please!

Normally I would gravitate towards red velvet so I love that this is something new for me, and I feel the color makes it wearable for more than just Christmas. I also love that it has little details that make it really tie together, like the deep V, the ruched sleeves with little ties, and the faux-wrap. It all just comes together so sleekly.


I paired the romper with black tights and black boots, they could even be platforms if you’re looking for a little extra something on your night out!

You could also go for a nude lip (or even red), but I went with a blue/grey matte lippie which I also think really helped to make the entire outfit come together.


Of course because it’s also New Year’s Eve, and it’s all about the glitter, I think this outfit would look great with either gold or silver accents as well! There are just so many possibilities, and it really gives you a lot of room to make it your own! (:

And now onto the fun stuff.. The New Year’s Resolutions!

I normally am not a fan of these, but hey, why not turn a new leaf and go for some small changes that I can make to make 2018 one of the best years yet?!

1. Wear more lipstick.

Yes, I love makeup, but my heart lies with lipstick, and although I continue to add to my collection, I don’t actually get to wear it that much. And so this year, my goal is to try to incorporate more of my colors into my daily routine!

2. Give up pizza for Lent.

I give something up every year for Lent, but this year I’m going to challenge myself to give up the one food that always manages to make me feel better. I’ll update you all when the time comes (:

3. Spend. Less. Money.

It is not an unknown fact that I love to spend. And I think I’ve finally hit the point where I’m realizing that if I don’t make changes sooner, rather than later, that I’m going to be an unhappy camper. And so here’s to probably the hardest resolution of my life, let’s make it a good one, and NYC apartment? This is for you (:

But anyways, I hope you all were able to get some inspiration from this short little OOTD/OOTN! If anything, you’ll get a cute outfit that is wearable all throughout Winter, and that’s good enough for me (:

What will you all be doing on NYE? Will you be dazzling up your outfit with lots of glitter or are you going to keep it more casual? Let me know your thoughts! And..

Until next time,

4 Ways to Wear Your Holiday Sweater This Season

4 Ways to Wear Your Holiday Sweater This Season

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today, I wanted to post a quick little ‘Outfit of the Day’ inspired post but better, because it’s all about the holidays! Yes, that’s right. In case you needed a reminder, it’s literally less than a week until Christmas.. So, if you haven’t already gotten all of wear out of your ugly (or cute) holiday sweater, or maybe you’re just in a festive funk and need some inspiration, I’m here to show you a few different ways to style and show off all of that spirit that is just DYING to get out! (:

Up first is the ‘Business Casual’ look


Not only is this actually comfy AND practical, but it’s super cute as well! You pretty much have it all with this one. The flats are simple but will make your life so easy for the day while the high waisted pants keep everything looking sleek. And of course, you still get to have some more fun with whatever type of sweater you choose to rock! And yes, believe it or not, this sweater is from Boscov’s from like 3 or 4 years ago. And it’s STILL one of my favorites (:

Also for those of you that are curious, my pants are from American Apparel (unfortunately, I don’t think they make them any more) and my flats are Jeffrey Campbell!


Next up is the ‘Christmas Party’ look


Again, this is so simple, but super chic. I love the combination of the high-waisted skirt, sweater, and heels. I feel like it’s sophisticated, feminine, and festive (but not like in your face festive). Plus, in this one, it’s really all about the details. The skirt’s mesh cut-outs add a little something extra, and the gold detailing in the heels really pull it all together. And although I’m not always the biggest fan of jewelry, I feel like it would be so cute to pull it together even more with a pair of earrings and a simple chain necklace! (:

For this outfit, my sweater is from Wildfox Couture (my mom got it for me as a Valentine’s Day present a few years ago because I’ve been dying to get my hands on this ever since I saw it), the skirt is from Express, and the shoes are from J.C. Penney (Cosmopolitan brand I believe).


Third up on the list is what I like to call the ‘New Year’s Eve Recovery’ look (:


If any of y’all are going to be having a long night on New Year’s, this is perfect for the day after. And, although I call this a ‘Recovery’ look, it’s totally for anyone who just loves to be comfy. It’s also for my athleisure lovers out there as well (:

It’s super simple, but again, cute (are we sensing a theme here with these outfits?). I just paired my Adidas joggers (literally my go-to staple in my closet), with a pair of sneakers (Adidas, in my case), with a black turtleneck underneath a pullover sweatshirt.

Obviously, you don’t NEED the turtleneck, but I think it looks cute and extra cozy underneath the sweatshirt.

And yes, my friends, you read the saying right. Happy Kanyear 2018! I’m not sure if they will still have this but, I purchased it a few years ago from Rad.


And last, but certainly not least, is outfit number four.. the ‘Last Minute Holiday Shopping’ look (:


I love that this look is 98% black (my favorite color to wear), but still keeps with the holiday spirit! You might be wearing black to mourn your bank account, or you might be wearing black to mourn your sanity while trying to tie up all of the odds and ends before the big day, who knows, but you look cool while doing it! And sometimes that’s all that really matters, right? (:

My fuzzy black sweater is from Target (seriously, it was so freaking cheap and is one of my favorite things), the jeans are BDG from Urban Outfitters (ADORE the little zip details at the ankle), my boots are Doc Martens (invest in these if you haven’t, they’re a staple and the most comfy, like, ever), and my beanie is from Aerie (the pom pom at the top is interchangeable!).


And that about sums it up for my mini holiday sweater inspired lookbook. Although I categorized each outfit into what I thought it could function best as, they are outfits that could seriously be worn for any occasion. I hope you all enjoyed and managed to get either some inspiration for yourself or a small break during this amazing (but sometimes hectic) time of the year!

What was your favorite look? Would you add or do something differently? Or are you all holiday-sweatered out by now? Let me know what you think! And..

Until next time,

Black Friday Deals I Won’t Be Missing!

Black Friday Deals I Won’t Be Missing!

Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Despite feeling disappointed in myself for needed to take some time away from my blog, I am so thankful for the journey it has taken me on the past 7 months.

We all know that life sometimes gets in the way and that’s totally okay, so I do just quickly want to update you all and say that I can’t promise how consistent my posting schedule will be until the end of the school semester. Girl has to pass her classes, yanno?

I also just want to take a few moments and talk about what I’m thankful for, especially considering the occasion (:

1. My family and friends
2. Delicious food (yeah, I’m looking at you mashed potatoes)
3. My heath
4. Music (Kiwi on repeat always)
5. New York City (:

And without further ado, I want to give you guys the 411 on a few of the sales this Black Friday that I think are 110% WORTH it!

1. Zara

This is a no brainer. I don’t often get to actually go to a Zara in store, but on Black Friday, I haul my butt up to the city and you better believe I’ll be strutting on in to score majorly.

Last year they offered 20% off everything. Let me repeat, EVERYTHING. That’s kind of unheard of. And this year, they seem to be tight lipped on what they’re offering, but I’m sure it’ll be awesome and I’m beyond ready to check it all out (:

2. Jeffree Star Cosmetics

Okay, first of all? The 2017 Holiday collection? Amazing. Sadly, that isn’t on sale, but everything else will be! And spoiler alert.. The discounts? They’re beyond.

Almost everything will be 40% off, and do you know what that means? Skin frosts for literally $17, and eyeshadow palettes for less than $30. That’s a steal and a half. Plus you know Jeffree is the real deal. The pan sizes are huge and the color pay-off always delivers.

So in other words, Neffree here I come!


3. Saks Fifth Avenue

Like I mentioned previously, we make it a tradition to go to the city on Black Friday. Now, we don’t get up super early but we’re there by 9 and shopping definitely by 10.

Last year, we wandered around Saks to see the window displays and stumbled on literally the BEST sale of the year.

Wrapped around the entire store are hundreds of racks with major designers for mega discounts. Of course, they’re still pretty expensive, but at least maybe these prices won’t make your heart stop completely.

My mom bought be my first pair of Rag & Bone jeans from this sale last year, and they have been my holy grail ever since.

Also, this is a sale you definitely want to get to a little early. The earlier you arrive, the better the discounts and size selection will be. Trust me, it is seriously the very best.

4. Bandier

Okay this makes the list because athleisure, am I right? Who doesn’t want to be comfy AND still stylish literally all stinking day long? And this store sells it for major bank in my opinion. So when they offer 20% off everything, INCLUDING sale I feel like you need to jump on it.

Leggings that are originally over $100 are down to $40-50 so I wouldn’t sleep on this opportunity because I’ve noticed sizes are going FAST. Plus, bonus jonas.. this sale is happening as we speak. So let me repeat, run. Don’t walk (:

5. Winter Village at Bryant Park

Okay so this one isn’t really a sale, but it’s still something I won’t be missing on my day in the city.

I love to see all of the little shops they have and I especially love to munch on a Pickle Me Pete fried pickle at the end of a long day. There is seriously nothing like them, and if you haven’t tried them yet? 10/10 WOULD recommend. Honestly? If you take nothing else from this blog post, keep on your radar Pickle Me Pete pickles and I’ve done my job (:


But anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed my super quick a brief overview of some of the sales I know I will be shopping. Of course there are seriously a MILLION you could talk about, but I just wanted to include the ones that I think are really worth it at the end of the day!

I hope you all have a wonderful day and that you get to spend it watching the Macy’s Day parade (Dear Evan Hansen, yes please), filling your bellies with delicious food, and relaxing with your families/friends.

Take a moment to realize all that you’re blessed with and..

Until next time,

Treasure & Bond x Something Navy: Review and OOTD

Treasure & Bond x Something Navy: Review and OOTD

Happy Monday Everyone!

This week I have for you a special ‘Outfit of the Day’ type post fused with a review!

For those of you who might not know, Something Navy (AKA Arielle), has been my favorite (and first) fashion blogger for the past 5 or so years. I stumbled on her instagram page when I was in an 11th grade psychology class, and I’ve been hooked ever since. So if there is anyone reading this right now, I would 10/10 recommend checking her out as she has such great personal style, a kind heart, and a totally cute kid (seriously, the daily dose of Ruby is much appreciated)!

But anyways, Arielle recently collaborated with Nordstrom and Treasure & Bond and released an entire line of clothing! Not only are the clothes REALLY cute, but they’re also really affordable as well, which of course my wallet always appreciates.

Leading up to the release, Arielle had been dropping little sneak peeks and I knew there were a few items that I just had to have. Unfortunately, I was unable to get my hands on the orange sweater, but considering that I was able to track down everything else, I would consider it a win-win.

And yes, you read that right. I literally had to TRACK DOWN most of these items. There was a technical issue on Nordstrom’s end the day of the release, and by the time I realized the items were online, like 98% of them were sold out. So naturally, I called practically every Nordstrom on the west coast that I could find until I found one with the item and size that I needed. This was probably like a two hour affair at least, so that’s what I would like to call dedication (:

So anyways, I wanted to show off the items that I managed to snag! The first one was the ‘Wrap Cardigan’. This is something I knew I needed in my life. She posted a picture of her wearing it the night before the released and I about had a heart attack. It’s so cute and unique, and I truly fell in love at first sight.

I love that it has a deep V neckline, and that the fabric is so soft and that this piece will really easily transition into fall and winter months! My only regret is that I didn’t have the belt that Arielle wore when styling this cardigan, because that combo was amazing together.

If you can’t tell, I really loved this cardigan. The only thing that I will warn is that if you can still get your hands on it, SIZE DOWN! This is something I didn’t realize to do, and the XS ended up being a little big so I had to go with the XXS (yeah, I don’t think I’ve ever been that size).

Pairing this with a black pair of skinny jeans and a pair of simple heels really made me feel like I was on top of the world. Love, love, LOVE this outfit (:


Next up is a kind of 2-in-1 deal. First on the list is the ‘Ruffle Cuff Tunic’ in the blue color. I didn’t realize when buying this that ‘tunic’ was in the name, so when I saw it in person I was kind of surprised at how long it was, but now.. it totally makes sense.

This is just another super unique piece. I LOVE simple button downs and the fact that this one just had something a little extra going on with the sleeves, made me gravitate to it even more. I mean the detailing is so subtle and delicate that it’s hard NOT to want to buy like 30 of these.

Here, I tried to tuck it in and for the most part it worked, but like I said earlier, SIZE DOWN!! I have an XS in this, and I definitely think that the XXS would have again been a better fit. Unless of course you’re into the oversized look, then go with your normal sizing (:

And finally, the last piece I got are the ‘Kaine Strappy Mule’ in the silver faux leather. Honestly? I think these are my favorite. I don’t have a single pair of shoes like this, and I love that they are giving me edgy but also sophisticated at the same time.

Like in a weird way, I can totally picture Harry Styles coming out in a pair of these (actually, maybe if they were boots it’d be more likely.. but you catch my drift).

I wear so much black that I know these will spice up my wardrobe and probably be a total conversation started. Not to mention, that they are actually super comfortable and fit like a glove. For these? DON’T size down, they fit perfect (:



As for the rest of the collection? I loved it all. If I was a millionaire I would have every single piece but I just wanted to showcase some of it and really tell all y’all just how great the collection truly is. If you can still get any piece, I would encourage it as they’re all timeless, effortless, and super stylish.

The handwork that Arielle put into the collection really paid off and I couldn’t be more proud! Either way, I hope you all enjoyed this short little review/OOTD and got some fall inspiration for your wardrobe! But..

Until next time,

OOTD: Stripes and Sweater Dresses

OOTD: Stripes and Sweater Dresses

Happy Friday Everyone!

I know I haven’t come at y’all with an OOTD recently, so I thought it would be fun to do a simple sweater dress that you can wear in the coming months transitioning from summer to fall weather!

Let me just start out by saying.. I. Love. This. Dress.

It’s from ASOS and it’s in a size petite (they also sell it in regular sizes too!), which is a super bonus because there is nothing I hate more than falling in love with a dress and then looking like a potato in it because it’s just too long or the fit is just a little off.

It’s also mostly black with little pops of color. I think the pink and grey keep it trendy but throwing in the neon yellow/green stripe gives it a little something extra and makes it 10x cuter (how could that be possible, right?!)!

It’s also a knit material! So it’s light enough that you can start to wear it now, but also heavy enough to keep you warm when the cooler weather starts to kick in. Plus, it’d be super cute layered with a jacket as well, and can even transition into winter as well! For me, that’s really important. I love being able to wear pieces that I love year-round, and I think this dress could easily do that for me.

Not only is it simple and cute, it’s so easy to dress down as well. I paired it with some Adidas in these pictures, but the possibilities are endless! I love that sneakers really can vibe with it, because when I’m rushing to class, I know I want to be comfortable and not slowed down by my footwear.

I also love that the fit isn’t a bodycon. I know some people love that, but I like to be able to breath (and eat an entire Chipotle burrito without my food baby showing), and the looseness around the waste is perfect while still being totally flattering!



So do you all understand how much I love this dress yet? To sum it all up, it’s simple, but cute, and really wearable! And really, what more could you ask for now a-days??

I hope you enjoyed this super quick OOTD, but..

Until next time,
