Goodbye Summer!

_W5C2377-3

Summer is officially over y’all which means my favorite season is here! Time to pull out some thicker knits and rich hues to mix and match with your summer faves. I love this transitioning period because it allows you to be creative and work with what you already have in your closet. This past weekend I felt like going a little flirty, a little elegant while still grounding the look with a chunky heel to tone down the girly-ness.

You may have noticed that I have been donning the midi length quite frequently lately (unintentionally) and by nature these types of dresses or skirts tend to be on the dressier side. Because they generally also hit around the mid calf area, pairing the look with heels is usually the safer option. I went against everything, because I can. And I think it’s a lot more fun this way. If you feel good in it, wear it because in my opinion when it comes to personal style there are no rules. I styled this dress in a way that I could see myself roaming around the streets in or even on a school campus in.

NYFW Outfit 2

Xteeener - NYFW OOTD2 - 03

Here is the second look I wore for the evening time to Charlotte Ronson’s Presentation for her S/S 2015 line at New York Fashion Week! The top and skirt are from her I ‘Heart’ Ronson Fall collection currently sold at JCPenney. It’s really fun to see how she drew inspiration from her Fall line to create more affordable pieces. I couldn’t help but feel like a boss lady in this one with the bold blue color and the houndstooth print paired with the ladylike cut. Head on over to my channel to see me Get Ready in this look!

NYFW Outfit 1

IMG_0047

Hi everyone! These past few days have been a whirlwind. Everything happened so quickly from me flying out to New York City for fashion week to collaborating with Chictopia on a couple videos to flying back for a friend’s wedding within the span of 2 days. I’m also helping plan and wrap up the details for another friend’s upcoming bachelorette! Of course it doesn’t stop there as I am working on other videos and collaborations as well. My brain has been running a bajillion miles a second but I wouldn’t have it any other way :) Typing out this post is actually bringing me a lot of peace at the moment.

Luckily we were able to do a quick shoot of the first outfit I wore in New York. I actually carried my black faux leather backpack which carried my cameras, Madden Girl flats (a must!), and other essentials in turn explaining the absence of a clutch or small handbag. I found this dress last week and fell in love with its mix of patterns, cut outs, and how I didn’t have to worry about piecing together separates as I quickly packed for this trip. I feel like this dress makes more of a subtle statement in the faded print and it in a way symbolizes where I am at this point in my life. I definitely am at a crossroad of being a girl and a woman (cue the Britney song!) and I am just feeling all sorts of feels. Descriptive, I know. The shoes were needed to liven up the look and because i’ve worn them so many times I knew they wouldn’t be killer on my feet :) Wow, I was rather chatty today so we’ll sign off here! Stay tuned for more outfit posts!

Black Playsuit

Xteeener - Romper OOTD - 01

Hi all :) I’m typing this up as I pack for my trip to LA tomorrow and I think this black playsuit is an ideal type of clothing item to travel with. It’s easy to dress up or down, you could pair a skirt over it for an additional look, and if you get something spilt on you it won’t be obvious haha ^^ I seriously love fuss free clothing. I also love golden hour; it’s freakin’ magical.

Xteeener - OOTD -  05

I am often won over by separates because of it’s practicality in it’s capability of being mixed and matched. Does anyone else find it gratifying to wear certain items in your closet over and over again just because it’s so easy? Striped tops would definitely fall under this category. When I bought this textured striped top and pale blue skirt I had envisioned pairing them separately with either a print or something that would bring higher contrast to the overall look. The versatility of the two pieces inspired me to start by pairing them together and keeping it clean and simple.
