Valentine’s Day OOTD & Makeup Look!


Hello, loves! Happy Valentine’s Day! In honor of this day of love, I thought I’d share an OOTD. Initially, this post was going to be strictly a makeup look, however I remembered I had the perfect outfit for the day! It’s been so long since I’ve written a post like this, and I forgot how much I enjoy sharing them with you all. Whether you are in a committed relationship or a single pringle like me, I hope you can find some happiness today and celebrate the love that is so abundant in this world. Enjoy the OOTD!

Pink, Purple, and Poised

Once I knew Valentine’s Day was coming up, I really wanted to do a pink inspired makeup look. It quickly turned to a more purple look, but I’m not really mad about it. I started out with the Naked 3 palette from Urban Decay, which is completely made up of pink shades. I personally love the looks you can get from this palette and I use it quite often in the spring time. I then went in with the two dark pink shades from the Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette. This really brought out the perfect pink/rosey shades to the outer half of my lid. Lastly, I used the Purple Palette from Kylie cosmetics, which I wrote a full review of (you can find that here), and I was definitely not impressed with it. However, the one shade I truly do love I used today on my lower lash line and a bit in my outer V. I finished everything off with some black Stila waterproof eyeliner and the Better Than Sex Mascara (what else would I use? lol)

For skin, I used my usual Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and translucent powder to set everything in place. As for bronzer, blush, and highlighter, I went in with the Benefit Hoola bronzer, Nars blush in Orgasm, and a pinky toned highlighter from Kylie Cosmetics (let me know if you guys want a full review of her highlighters, I’m very torn on them too). As for lips, I went for a simple tinted chapstick from Burt’s Bees in Pomegranate.






For the Love of Yellow Hearts

This top I found at Topshop a while back. It’s a cropped blouse with a little tie in the front. I normally am not a fan of these types of tops, but the print completely won me over. The small black and white dots with the yellow hearts made for the perfect look today! The zipper running down the front gives a very edgy look, which of course I’m obsessed with. Sleeves are a big deal to me, and the one on this top definitely don’t disappoint! I love the length and combined with the flowy material, makes for a flattering ensemble.

I paired this top with my favorite jean skirt (which I thought was appropriate for the weather today, but it actually ended up raining!) I added these black heeled sandals and I think it went super well with the top. For accessories, I kept it simple with medium sized silver hoops. I love how casual yet put together this look is. You could definitely spice it up with some more serious heels if you’re going out at night or throw on some tennis shoes if you’re simply running errands.









I hope you all enjoyed this little Valentine’s themed OOTD. Let me know what you think of the makeup and outfit down below in the comments. If you have any questions, feel free to ask as well! Have a great day everyone!

Blogmas Day 3: Christmas Shopping Date OOTD

Hi beauties! For today’s Blogmas post, I thought I’d do an OOTD! For those of you in the UK or somewhere that actually experiences the seasons, this may not be the warmest option for you. But for us in Southern California where we don’t see snow or hail or much rain even, this is the perfect everyday winter look! Image.jpgHonestly one of the easiest and most put together outfits you could wear is jeans with a black boot and a fancy looking top. That’s exactly what I went for with this outfit, and it was also very comfortable actually! I found this blouse at the Topshop in Nordstrom during Black Friday. It was actually in the “Last Chance” section and it was the last one so I’m glad I got my hands on it.




A couple things I adore about this top is the print and the way the back is designed. The extreme floral detail that is usually very feminine somehow compliments the darker navy tones and black in this blouse. I’m in love with the little pops of orange, which I usually wouldn’t be attracted to in any look (orange isn’t really my color, lol). The back has a small cutout that is brought together with a little black ribbon. How freaking cute is that I mean come on?! As you may know, the mix between girly and edgy is something I need in every outfit and this top hits that mark all on its own!



As for accessories, since the neckline dips so low, I wore a gray bralette that matched the middle tones of this top perfectly! I got this bralette from a store called Owl Fish for about $12, which these types of bralettes usually sell for $20 or more so it was definitely a steal! Also I just haven’t been taking off my Tiffany’s olive branch necklace, but it ended up looking really sophisticated with this blouse. For shoes, I should probably do an entire post on these things since I’ve been wearing them everyday, but they’re a pair of mules from Steve Madden. Usually I’m not a huge fan of these slip on kinds of shoes, partly because I don’t think they’re very flattering on me. But I was completely wrong when it came to these. The inside is completely made of (faux) fur and the tops are black leather. They sell the exact same pair at Nordstrom, but without the gold buckle and I think that feature added a lot to the shoe as a whole. I don’t buy Steve Madden very often because it’s a little pricey, but I think these babies were definitely worth taking the plunge!




I decided to throw my hair up for a few of these photos. This top is very professional looking, and I think a nice updo would compliment it nicely. Peep the ugly green hair tie in my hair, lol! But I guess it’s also pretty Christmasy?? I love how this look can be very proper and lovely but also very casual. You could wear it to a short meeting (or at least the field I could go into, you could wear it to a meeting haha) or out on a Christmas shopping date! For me, walking through the mall during Christmas is so magical and beautiful. Such a fun time to shop for yourself and others! Alright that’s it for Blogmas Day 3, I really hope you guys enjoyed this little OOTD! Let me know your thoughts down in the comments below!

How To Make Your Summer Favorites Useful in the Winter!

Hey guys! Are some of your favorite clothes only appropriate for the warmer months? Is that top perfect for a special occasion except for the fact that you’d freeze in it?? Most of my wardrobe is made for the warmer weather, so once those couple of cold weeks hit here in California, I have to get creative. I have some styles for you that incorporate your favorite piece and are also practical for November and December! Check out these great layered looks for autumnal and winter fashion inspiration!

Comfy, Cozy, and Off to Class!




Unfortunately in San Diego and Southern California as a whole, we don’t get a whole lot of the changing of the seasons. The days are usually sunny and don’t call for jackets, scarves, or cute hats. However, its usually a bit chilly during my morning class, so I will opt for jeans, boots, and some sort of cute top. This is a great outfit if you live somewhere similar! This adorable blouse from Irene’s Story is light and airy with a beautiful fall color and floral pattern. The lace at the front gives a nice feminine touch and makes the whole look a little more extravagant. The back is pretty open and has an adorable tie at the top. The cut is super flattering and a gray bralette worked perfectly with it. (I got the bralette for $12 at Owl Fish by the way!) Simple ripped jeans worked well with this top, since I was going for a casual, comfortable look.


As for accessories, I wore these great black boots from Steve Madden. I have been wearing them everyday lately, I’m just so in love with them! Unlike most heels, they are actually very comfortable! I also wore my favorite Tiffany’s necklace to keep the look simple. I always keep it pretty plain when it comes to jewelry since I’m not the biggest fan of statement necklaces at the moment.


A Girlboss in Every Season!



There are a couple weeks in the year when we actually get rain, fog, and wind! These days call for the perfect jacket or sweater. I found this one yesterday at Irene’s Story and I absolutely love how it looks like part of a man’s suit. It’s a masculine cut but also very beautiful when thrown over this top with the lace. It’s very long and extremely cozy! Better yet, it has pockets on each side, allowing for easy access to your phone, a small wallet, or earbuds. I don’t really know what you guys keep in your pockets on the regular, but the pockets on this jacket are just great and that’s all you need to know, LOL!



This will be my face in my future career, about to walk into a meeting, knowing I’m about to slay the game.



The Next Gossip Girl



For some reason, once I threw on this scarf, I felt VERY New York, specifically Gossip Girl which I’ve been binging for the second time! Although I think whenever you throw on a nice jacket and big scarf, it always screams NYC and that sort of hustle bustle life. New York is somewhere that is high up on my bucket list, so hopefully I can wear an outfit like this some day in that bright city. I bought this enormous scarf at Zara a couple years ago before my first trip to Boston, and somehow it got buried in my closet at home and I’ve just rediscovered it! It’s almost the size of a blanket, so I like to take each opposite corner and fold it over. It’s long, warm, and totally preppy with the print! It’s crazy how one item can completely transform a look!



I hope you all enjoyed this outfit transformation! It’s amazing how you can take a lightweight blouse like this one, add a jacket and/or scarf, and it’s magically perfect for a new season! Fashion is mind blowing, people! I really loved mixing and matching these items that usually don’t go together. Let me know what you think of it or if you have any fashion advice for the winter that you’d like to share! Talk to you soon! xx

Makeup I’m wearing: Kylie Cosmetic liquid matte lipstick in “Gorg,” a mix of Urban Decay eyeshadows, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, Fenty Beauty Foundation, Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe, Laura Mercier Bronzer, and Nars Orgasm Blush.

Keep up with me!

November Style: Oversized Sweaters & Denim Skirts


Hey everyone! I don’t think I said this in my previous post but HAPPY NOVEMBER!! It’s basically Christmas…LOL kidding we’re not quite there yet. Lately I have just been obsessed with denim! This was pretty obvious when I posted my 5 Ways to Style a Black Overall Dress for the Fall post. Check that out to see my favorite denim dress from Topshop and how to wear it! I usually have a hard time with fitted or denim skirts, but I found the perfect one from Forever 21 of all places! It’s normally hard for me to find something I truly love from Forever 21, even though it was my go to store when I was younger; my taste has evolved a lot since then. So I’ve put together a couple looks with the denim skirt that are perfect for the fall weather we get here in San Diego. The weather has been pretty bipolar so the options I have here are perfect for the fluctuating temperatures.

Pretty in PinkImage-1.jpg

Okay I have seriously been obsessing over this sweater lately! I’m so glad it’s been a little chilly so I can wear it whenever I want! This gorgeous pink color has a salmon tone to it, which I think makes it perfect for the fall. It brightens up any look and the fabric is just to die for. It’s so freaking soft and one of the thicker sweaters I own. They ended up not having my size so I actually got a Large and I’m so glad I did!! Sometimes I will intentionally buy sweaters like this super big so I can wrap myself up in them. Personally I think these types of pieces should be worn in an extra cozy way, who agrees?? They had a variety of different colors in this sweater, so I’ll leave a link here if you want to get your hands on one. I bought this from the BP section at Nordstrom’s!


I personally think the best way to style this with a denim skirt is to tuck it in the front. Since it’s so oversized it can easily cover up the details of the denim. I wear this skirt pretty high waisted, which is essential to this look. It has buttons instead of a zipper going all the way up and they’re covered by a small piece of fabric.


It seems the more I wear this skirt and wash it, the more distressed it becomes, which I absolutely love! The more worn, the more 90’s it looks and who doesn’t love that?? I wore some simple black boots with this outfit. They have beautiful gold detailing at the heels. I believe I bought this from some time ago. These babies are a little stiff still but are getting more comfy as I break them in.



Bundle Up Buttercup! Image.jpg

This has absolutely been one of my favorite outfits lately! It was so easy to put together and SO effortless to wear! This is a great look for going to class if you’re a college student. It’s comfortable while still looking completely put together!


I absolutely adore the color of this cardigan! It’s one of my favorites for the fall or winter. I’ve also never had a cardigan that has short sleeves! It’s such a great cut and my hands are totally free if I have to do any sketching or designing. I usually like my cardigans or sweaters to be able to cover my hands but this is a nice change. I bought this at Melrose in the O.C. 


I decided to pair this outfit with one of my favorite little backpacks. The color goes with everything and is great for little outings. I love how it looks against the burgundy cardigan! I bought this backpack about a year and a half ago in Boston at their Primark. It’s my go to beach backpack! And of course, for shoes I threw on my classic checkered Vans. I feel like I wear these things for every outfit, but they are just so perfect for any occasion! Maybe not for a wedding or something like that, but you know what I mean! I really wanted to keep this look super casual, so my Vans seemed to be the perfect fit! They’re insanely comfy so if you haven’t tried them on for yourself, here is a link if you’d like to order a pair.



I’ve been wearing this mustard colored T-shirt so often lately! Although it is a simple short sleeve tee, the sleeves almost reach my forearm. It’s a V neck and again I decided to tuck it into the denim skirt so it could be more visible. I bought this shirt from BP at Nordstrom’s (for a great price!) and it also comes in so many different colors. Here is the page where you can find all the various options if you’d like one for yourself or as a Christmas present (it’s never to early to start buying!)



P.S. I’m wearing a Kylie liquid matte lipstick in the shade “Gorg.” I have a full post about it here if you haven’t checked it out yet!

That’s all I have for you guys for this post! Let me know what you think of these looks or if you have any questions about the products! Hope you’re all stay warm and cozy in this chilly weather. To be honest, I’ve been drinking a lot of peppermint tea and I’m already using a Christmas mug. Oops! Until next time! xx

Cozy Fall Morning OOTD!

Hello everyone! Got another OOTD for ya, of course specifically for the autumn season! I recently went shopping for some new pieces and I think I found some great things! I went to one of my favorite coffee shops in San Diego this morning to get some homework done and this was absolutely the perfect outfit for that. Comfortable yet totally put together. This is a new look I want to try out more often, since it’s so freaking comfy and easy for anyone to wear! So here are some photos, let me know if you have any questions about it down below in the comments!



These pants are just so amazing. They are a gray/taupe color with white stripes. For me, they come to about mid calf and sometimes longer depending on whether I roll the waist or not. They are not tight at all, which I really love because it gives such an effortless look. I love this simple striped print with the muted tones as well. It makes them very versatile and easy to create so many different looks. I paired them with a simple white cropped tee. Sometimes I will tuck it in and other times not. A simple colored top is one of the best ways to go with these types of pants.




The burgundy cardigan is a new purchase of mine as well. It is very long, which is one reason I fell in love with it so quickly. I think cardigans should look extra big and comfy! It is very unique though considering the sleeves are rolled and out of your way (perfect for doing boring math homework, lol!) Also, as for hair, I straightened it today and threw it up in this messy yet cute high ponytail. Very Ariana Grande, but a great look to spend a couple minute on if you’re running late in the mornings.



For accessories, I wore my silver necklace that looks like a little branch from Tiffany’s. It’s one of my favorites since it’s so simple and goes with anything you could possibly wear. I didn’t take it off in Europe! Next, for earrings, I wore these beautiful blush pink tassels with a gold diamond shape. I feel like they’re on the fancy side but still very easy to pull off. The pink compliments the burgundy pretty nicely too, which I wasn’t expecting. I also wore extremely basic silver hoops in my second piercings.



I can’t tell you how often I wear these little white sandals. They go with the pants and the t-shirt perfectly. It adds to that comfortable vibe, especially with the straw like string that rims the edge of them. To add just a touch of edge to this look, I wore this adorable black bag that has a very long strap. I love the little sewn in details on this bag. It’s very minimalistic and quite versatile. I usually only buy black bags since they are foolproof for any look. I should probably branch out, but I couldn’t resist this one!

That’s about it for this little OOTD. I hope it inspired you to try out a look like this. It really was perfect for just hanging out and being totally comfortable. What more could you want in an outfit?? Here’s to hoping the fall weather comes soon so we can break out the giant knit sweaters for more comfy OOTD’s! Hope you all are having a great Tuesday, until next time! xx

5 Ways to Style a Black Overall Dress for the Fall!


I am officially writing my first blog post inspired by the fall season, YAY! I am so so excited to bring you these posts and hope it gives you some good ideas for this autumn time whether it be beauty, fashion, or lifestyle related! So to kick things off, I’m creating an OOTD-like post. Recently, I bought these black denim overalls from Topshop and they’re all I want to wear. They had a huge selection of overalls from corduroy to denim in many colors. Not only are these overalls so 90’s, but they’re in dress form!! Perfect for a trip to Julian to have some of Mom’s pies or taking photos in a little pumpkin patch this season. So without me rambling on, here are 5 unique ways to style a black denim overall dress. Get ready for silly faces and some unforgettable denim outfits!

A Date with Jack Skellington





Alright so this first looks is super simple, making it very easy to wear! The classic striped shirt underneath overalls is very popular right now, so I thought it’d give it a go. This is one of my most basic striped shirts that goes with just about anything. I love how easy it looks under the overalls and how it matches the black denim. For accessories, I threw on my sun medallion choker, which I usually wear year round but I love the witchy vibe it gives during the fall. I also wore my black heeled sandal shoes. They are a little hard to describe but they are so casual but also very feminine with the slight heel (I have a full post about them and more here!) Such an easy look for absolutely anybody to wear and if you’re not a fan of the heels, black or white tennis shoes would be just as adorable!

Striped shirt: Zara

Necklace: Etsy

Shoes: Melrose in the O.C.

Through the Corn Maze with Bae



This next look is actually one of my favorites. I just recently picked up this green plaid jacket and I think it’s absolutely lovely for the new season. It’s cozy and there’s a bonus, it has a little hood! I love the look of this without the jacket as well, with the simple white tee and the black overalls. It’s so clean and very up to date, especially when including the black velvet choker. The Vans high tops give a very skater vibe, which I love and reminds me of home. One of the reasons I’m obsessed with these overalls is the giant pocket right on the front. It’s so unexpected and is quite a big statement. I would seriously love to wear this running through a corn maze in October on a date. A girl can dream right?

T-Shirt: Nordstrom

Plaid Jacket: Garage

Necklace: Garage (probably?)

Shoes: Black Vans High Tops

Pumpkin Patch Babe




Okay, I take it back. THIS is one of my favorites as well. It’s just so different from things I usually wear. I am absolutely obsessed with sweaters under overalls. It’s so unexpected but it somehow works! I’ve had this sweater for so long, and finally found the perfect use for it. It’s a bit cropped, but I like it in this look more than I like it on its own. I again wore my Vans high tops to give it a very casual, easy look while still being put together. I didn’t accessorize at all because I love how this outfit looks all on its own. It has some very Midwest vibes, while still being very California surf and skate with the shoes. I imagine wearing this on a chilly day and visiting a pumpkin patch with my friend or family. It’s the classic October outing matched with the ideal look! What more could you want??

Sweater: Melrose in the O.C. (?)

Shoes: Vans High Tops

Let’s Go Ghost Hunting




This long sleeve green top is very unique within itself. I’ve never layered it with anything before but I seriously LOVE how it looks under this black denim. It makes the look of these overalls even edgier! The choker and cross sections in the front and even the back all come attached on the shirt. It’s a cool little detail in the back with the crossing of the shirt and the straps of the overalls. Since the top comes with a built in choker, there was no need to add any necklaces. However, I did wear these light brown heeled boots to change it up a bit. I love how they have a cutout at the sides, it goes perfectly with the whole vibe! Anyone wanna catch some ghosts with me in this look?

Green Top: Owl Fish

Shoes: Tilly’s

Netflix, Tea and Candlelight







This is absolutely the perfect outfit for having a night in with your friends (or even for a little date night in, lol). It is such a comfy and cozy look with the pale pink cardigan. It is so freaking soft, I can’t even explain it to you. It is definitely the most feminine look out of the five, but of course still edgy with my addition of the black velvet chocker and the checkered Vans. I wear these specific Vans almost everyday, they’re definitely a staple of mine and so 80’s! Lounge around, grab some peppermint tea, a soft blanket, and throw on some Netflix! (Preferably Friends, or maybe even a scary movie? By the way, I’m waiting for the day “It” comes on Netflix, that movie was AMAZING!)

T-Shirt: Nordstrom

Cardigan: Melrose in the O.C.

Choker: Garage

Shoes: Classic Checkered Vans

So those are my five unique looks to create with a black denim overall dress! Again, I purchased it at Topshop, so look in stores or maybe online if you’d like to get it yourself. It’s one of my go to looks right now and fits this autumnal season to a T! Also, I apologize for the boring background, we haven’t quite gotten to wall decor yet in the apartment. Let me know which one was your favorite and why down below in the comments! Hope you all had a lovely and productive Monday! xx

My Wishlist: Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Palette

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve made a “My Wishlist” post! I started this a year or two ago to allow myself to shop around online and talk about the best things I found in order to reduce the need to actually buy them. The temptation is real with online shopping, and I get a chance to showcase more of my personal style with you guys. Usually it is focused on apparel, but this time I thought I’d bring back these themed posts with a makeup product. So let’s get to it!


Recently I found a collaboration palette between the makeup brand Morphe and Jaclyn Hill. I was just perusing around YouTube when I found a few reviews on this palette. Now I have only ordered a few brushes from Morphe and I just recently bought a highlighter called Champagne Pop that Jaclyn Hill helped create (I have a full post about that highlighter here, it’s amazing!) So although I am not extremely familiar with many products from these brands, I absolutely fell in love with all the colors from this palette.


Seriously just take a minute to appreciate that perfection. Every single color in these palette is absolutely gorgeous. From the mattes to the shimmer shades, from the nudes to the electric blues, this palette absolutely has it all! I went to research how much it was retailing for, and unfortunately it is out of stock (I sort of expected that, considering how freaking gorgeous it is). Check out Manny MUA’s review of this palette, its a really great summary. And of course check out Jaclyn Hill’s own review of her palette, she just seems like the sweetest person ever!

I signed up on the Morphe website to be emailed when it is back in stock. Because girl, I NEED this palette in my life! The more I see it and research it, the more I’d love to have it in my makeup collection. Especially if you watch Jaclyn’s video, be prepared to have a new obsession. You have been forewarned. I think this palette has the perfect range of shades. You have the warmer pinks, mustards, and reds for the summer season and blues and purples for the spring. Then the burgundy and browns are spot on for the fall. Lastly the greens and darker shades will be optimal for the winter season. There’s just so many different combinations and looks you could create with this palette. I know if I had my hands on it, there’d be endless makeup looks on this blog!

So congratulations to Jaclyn for making such a stunning selection. In her video she mentions just how long it took to create it and how much of her heart she put into it. It definitely shows and it’s something to be proud of. Here’s to hoping I can purchase it sometime soon in the future! Let me know what you think of this palette down below in the comments or if you have it yourself, what are your opinions on it??
