Frills from For Love and Lemons

There is absolutely no fuss over these frills from For Love and Lemons! Recently discovering my love for Revolve Clothing, I have went on sort of a shopping rampage. My first encounter were those black jeans in my last post and here we are, yet again, in a pinky sassy dress. Now that I have established myself a repeat offender I feel no shame in my game (especially my dress game.) Speaking of dresses, I don't think I have ever appreciated them fully. I mean what a mindless piece of clothing that lets you get ready with so much ease and leaves you with time in the morning for coffee or wine, I'm not judging. I agree that fashion should challenge you and daring to wear what makes you feel slightly uncomfortable is what helps your style grow and evolve, but honey I have no issue with a mindless perfect pink dress on a Spring day in Portland!

I hope you guys like this look, I am so happy with how this all turned out and if you want to see more photos, I almost always give a sneak preview of what is to come on my instagram!

REDONE & Revolve on the Denim

Let us all start off with an applause for REDONE for giving us a heaven on earth that is their jeans. These bad boys came in the mail from Revolve Clothing about a week ago and I haven't removed them since. They have gradually gotten baggier to look like a boyfriend style jean which I am really into. It gives me the room to consume all the sodium and then some that I need to maintain a healthy pasta and wine infused diet. 

Coachella is upon us and I am saddened and excited to see all of the posts on Instagram! It is all the clothes you want to wear that may not be deemed seasonally appropriate any time of year except these weekends. If you are going then I hope you enjoy every minute of it and if not, then I will be on the sidelines with you yet again anxiously awaiting my feeds!

Travels in Tulum

I cannot begin to do justice describing my adventures in Tulum, MX. It was my first stamp on my passport and the culture shock was well worth it, never having left the US I was not exactly sure what to expect but I was open to grow and mingle with other walks of life! If you guys don't already know, Tulum is in Mexico and is about a two hour bus ride from Cancun! Every wall was painted with a vibrant force, I felt like I traveled to the city of color! From green to purple with hints of bright pink flowers, the city was a masterpiece and the beaches were a little slice of heaven. In these photos, I wore a WE THE DREAMRS swimsuit and am sad to be back to reality without that suit hugging me perfectly! I am not a very curvy person but the top was very flattering for my small chest and the bottoms left little to the imagination but in a tasteful, I didn't know my booty was hanging out, kind of way! 

I will say that I am excited to be back and have some time to catch up on my favorite blogs, you all have been missed!  

Red Alert!

Do you ever dream of being a classy French woman, who loves red wine to end an evening and a messy red lip to start the day? Well you my friend ARE NOT ALONE! With Paris Fashion Week over I took a couple things from it and started running... running around the world wide web that is, lets be real. Red was everywhere. It was the color of coats, lips, pant suits, shoes and bags. And it always looked amazing! This statement color is back and I couldn't be more thrilled! I purchased this red frock coat from Zara and kept it simple with everything else. Not that I am in anyway against color blocking, I plan to wear this coat with a dusty pink ruffle top in the next few days! These are also my new jeans that I mentioned in my last post that I LOVE, and these shoes are easy for me to throw on and go, especially with the weather we are having in Portland!

Long blog post in short, I hope you all are embracing the bold new trend of red and always remember, there can never be too much of a good thing aka I completely support a full red pant suit! 

Camel Coat and Gazelles

Hi, hello, how are you guys?! I am very enthusiastic about being back on the blog, my separation anxiety was starting to kick in! These are some photos of what I would wear for an everyday running around town kind of look. I really only wear thrifted Levi's but I actually just bought a new pair of jeans today, that I will definitely show you guys soon. For shoes, I haven't removed the Gazelles by Adidas for sometime now. I have them in a couple different colors to help me justify wearing the same style of shoe EVERYDAY! My top is cropped and has ruffles galore, I saw a lot of ruffles at fashion week and also some scandalous sternum exposure, which I might be into (I need a week to ponder). This camel coat has been a staple for me all winter and I am going to keep it around for Spring. It is from Zara and is really well made so I feel very put together when I wear it, no matter what I pair it with!

And that is that you guys! I am headed to Tulum, MX in about a week so be ready for some margarita and beach photos! 

TREND ALERT!!!!! (do people still say this?) Ruffles are in and are here to stay and I am on the prowl for a red coat or blazer!!

Pink Showstopper Velvet Booties

Moving through the snowy streets of Portland while visualizing warmer climates gave me the confidence to take on this see-through bodysuit today! I paired it with my go-to thrifted Levi's denim jeans, but I can't forget about the star of the show... These velvet beauties have given me an extra pep in my step these past couple of weeks! Combining pastel pink booties with a lace bodysuit was a no brainer for me, I love different textures contrasted together. I hope the new year is treating you all well!  

Don't forget to spread eagle every once in a while to see your bangin' booties.
