Breaking the Rules + Giveaway!

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 1

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!
