Greige Mix

Snapseed

Hey guys! I’m often getting asked about my sunglasses and it’s a bummer when they no longer exist anywhere or I find them at a boutique and have no idea where you can grab one for yourself. Well today i’m excited to let you know that you can get your hands on this gorgeous H&M rose gold pair and they’re only $10!  They are even prettier in person and oh so reflective! :) I also figured i’d tidy myself up a little by dressing up this real slouchy and casual Forever 21 t-shirt dress and came up with quite a greige (grey + beige) combo.

Red Rock Canyon

Hi everyone! I just got back from a trip to Las Vegas with my family. Oddly enough the only times i’ve been out here is with my family. This was my first time visiting this beautiful scenic route out at Red Rock Canyon. Despite the temperature reaching record highs we managed to get some shots. It was hard to choose which ones as my sister Sadie did such a great job with this impromptu shoot. :) Hope you enjoy the images!

Parish Dinner and Outfit

IMG_8493mini

Recently I dined out with some girlfriends at a restaurant called Parish to celebrate a birthday. It is quite dark inside this historical space but fortunately we sat right by a large window. I appreciate amazing natural lighting too much to not have taken advantage of it! Everything looks mouth-wateringly delicious doesn’t it?? :)

I rarely crave fried chicken (ironic since i’m down here in the south) but seriously if you order anything from here–get the fried chicken! It has the right amount of breading and crisp with a light sweetness that just leaves you wanting more!

Onto the outfit! I knew the restaurant had more of a casual yet trendy ambience so I decided to dress up my day wear a little for our girls’ evening out. I switched out my day bag for this cute little Forever 21 chevron clutch. Then I threw on my Zara red sandal heels (still loving these too much) and a punch-y lip color. All quick little changes were made along with some quick photos taken by my sister 10-15 minutes right before reservation time! :)

I’ve loved this floral romper since last summer and i’m still wearing it and styling it in different ways. It was really warm out that day but I wanted an extra cover up and layering piece. The light chambray vest has been perfect over tanks and such and suits my more casual style.

Moss Meets Neon

I have to admit this outfit didn’t come “naturally” to me even though it kind of exudes a nature-like and earthy vibe doesn’t it? Ok sorry but if we are going to be friends you’re going to have to put up with my lame jokes 😛

Many days I question and struggle with what I want to wear. This one was a result of dumping another outfit that I felt was too try-hard for the mood I was in that day.

Christine_04-16-2013_023

I told myself to dial it down and go with something casual; more effortless. The last missing component was of course: SHOES! Why else do we girls always feel like we need a billion shoes?

Even if in your mind you may think “nope that is just a strange pairing”, try it anyways! Many pairs of shoes later, I slipped on the neon sandals and smiled with content :)

Logging Back In :)

Hey guys! Guess who is blogging again? 😉 I’ve been wanting to get this baby back up to speed since the beginning of the year! One of my dreams was to have my own style diary so you can expect to see more outfit posts on here as well as the occasional beauty and lifestyle posts. :)

These images were shot on a warm beautiful day as Spring was quickly approaching. I of course have to thank my boyfriend Matt for having the patience with the shoots we’ve done so far considering he is primarily a food photographer. ^^

Please feel free to share your thoughts! I always love hearing from you. <3

This sleeveless high-low dress had been sitting in my closet unworn for far too long. I found myself enjoying the dress much more as a skirt so I decided to contrast the delicate flowy material of the dress with the faux leather top.

Paris: Where’s My Luggage?

Wow I don’t even know where to begin.

Well I did mention on the video to come here for a funny story so let’s start with that! It’s actually really not that funny but this was the only mishap we ran into regarding this trip. Me and Tiffany were luggage-less for the first and second day that we were in Paris! It’s funny because we had previously discussed how we would freak out if this ended up happening to us. Our luggage didn’t make it on the right flight to New York (since this is where the whole group met first) and then it took forever until they made sure it got on a flight to Paris. No one really is to blame here but it was just unfortunate because it was a hassle to try to sort things out multiple times with the staff at the airport to ensure that our luggage would eventually get to us. We both stayed positive and were happy to know that at least our luggage wasn’t lost.

What was my first thought when we realized that we would have to make do the first couple of days? UNDERWEAR

I can live with wearing my clothes twice but wearing the same pair of undies twice..uhh yea i’d rather go commando!

We made a one stop shop at H&M (I seriously love H&M) and I ended up getting 2 whole new outfits, one for our cruise dinner (dress and shoes) that night and one for the next day (top and skirt).

Luckily our luggage did finally arrive at our hotel the second night we were in Paris :)

More pictures coming up soon! In the meantime check out this video that I finally uploaded!
