Summer Splurge: Striped Pants

Last year I found myself buying striped pants over and over again. I got these and another pair from Topshop. I had no idea how useful they would be but I found myself wearing them more often than not, so I figured that this year when it came to "investment pieces", I'd definitely be buying a new pair, preferably made out of a quality fabric.

Summer Looks with Nobody's Child

[show_shopthepost_widget id="3156609"]I don't discuss this too much, but I learned so much in fashion school about how clothing is sourced. This really means that I've seen way too many documentaries about unfair labor practices in overseas factories. I always take note of whether a brand cares about their factory workers before I agree to work with them. This means I have passed on collaborations with lots of brands with accessible price points- not because I don't think their clothes are cute but because I wouldn't want to promote a company with a shady past in terms of labor practices/quality control (it's kind of like setting your friend up with an attractive guy you know has a sketchy reputation).

The 411 on Pink Hair

[show_shopthepost_widget id="3133714"]While I have loved having pink hair for the past month, there are definitely some things I wish I'd known beforehand, which is why I'm writing this post. So many of you DM'd me on Instagram and asked about upkeep, products, and whether I did this myself (spoiler alert: don't trust myself enough for that).

Pink Hair & Plaid Dress

[show_shopthepost_widget id="3117079"]As many of you already know (presumably from instagram), I dyed my hair pink about two weeks ago for my 25th birthday. It was temporary and washed out quickly, but I liked it so much that I decided to try a longer-lasting version the following week. This was something I had wanted to do for a while but had never been bold enough to try.

Dress Up Season

[show_shopthepost_widget id="3088143"]I feel like spring is such a busy season for so many of us! Whenever I find out about an event, I immediately do a mental scan of my closet and ponder what to wear. I don't think I'm ever super excited to attend something until I have my outfit nailed down because one of the worst feelings in the world is realizing you're unprepared for something at the last minute.

My Favorite Thrifted Finds (as of late)

[show_shopthepost_widget id="3059767"]If you follow me on Instagram, you know I love vintage clothing. I've mentioned it before, but just to give you some background- I worked at a charity thrift shop in high school for volunteer hours. At the time I thought it was incredibly boring, but in hindsight it's really what led to my love of thrifting and vintage clothes.

Why You Can Still Wear Your Off the Shoulder Tops

[show_shopthepost_widget id="3048641"]So I'm pretty sure we all went a little crazy for the OTS trend last summer. When I looked at my closet recently I was a little concerned about my lack of tops for weather under 65 degrees.

Luckily, it's basically springtime (depending on where you live), and even though these purchases may seem long forgotten by now I think it's important to get the most wear out of them as possible.

I'm making mine feel fresh again by wearing them with high-waisted, light wash jeans and kitten heels or the currently popular "dad sneakers". It may seem odd to mix such a girly piece with chunky, orthopedic looking sneakers- but I promise you can pull it off.

A Week in ATL: Outfits & Highlights

[show_shopthepost_widget id="3032255"]Visiting a place you used to live is always bittersweet.  Living in Atlanta- my birthplace and where I spend the first year of my life- at age 21 was so much fun. I'm glad I got to finish college there, make new friends and give my pup Gigi lots of outdoor space.

When I turned 23, I knew it was time for me to move. I'm happy I did, but Atlanta will always have a piece of my heart. That being said, the only thing I absolutely do not miss about Atlanta is the winter weather. L.A. has turned me into a major wimp about cooler temperatures.

A little about what I was up to in ATL: My trip was mostly for fun to see my sister, friends and meet up with my boyfriend for the last weekend I was there. Whenever I head back to ATL, I try and make a list of all the new restaurants I want to try and the places I've been before and need to go back to. As far as shopping goes- I went to Neiman's to shop their end-of-season sale, but was mostly excited about going to local consignment stores because their prices are so.much.better. than L.A.'s.

Blue Crush: My Favorite Unexpected Color Combination

[show_shopthepost_widget id="3018266"]I think the color pink got a bad rep for a while- movies in the early 2000s made it seem like a color reserved for mean cheerleaders and juicy tracksuits. In the past two years, there has been a major turnaround for the color with lighter shades of the color majorly coming in to play- just look at the packaging for one of my favorite beauty brands, Glossier. Now that 'millennial pink' has become the term for every shade of the color that isn't blinding, it can even seem a little too trendy at times.

Beauty Routine: My Everyday Favorites

I've gotten a lot of requests for more beauty content, which I typically do only sparingly when I've tried some new products and want to share. In an Instagram poll I did a few weeks ago, I asked whether you wanted to hear more about my daily routine or new products I've been trying and the overwhelming response was my daily routine.[show_shopthepost_widget id="2993559"] [show_shopthepost_widget id="2993874"]

2018 Resolutions: Shopping, Closet Cleaning & Style

[show_shopthepost_widget id="2983266"]Just being honest here, but I have been semi-putting off this post because I am rarely organized when it comes to shopping or keeping my closet neat and it feels weird sharing advice on this topic. However, I'm trying to be more thoughtful with my purchases and better about sharing content on my site and instagram. I just went through a major closet clean-out and it has motivated me to be better about keeping my space neat and buying things I'll actually wear.
