The world of fashion meets the world of me, circa 1999.
My love for fashion transpired through my desire to express myself and showcase myself in unique and different ways. I aspired to connect my passion for fashion with my love for business. I want to share with you new trends, lifestyle tips, and cool ideas.
When I took that picture above, I was in one of the capitals of Fashion: NYC. NYC is my city. The hustle-bustle, the street fashion, and most of all that Big Apple attitude is so catching and inspiring. I saw some amazing style and swag in New York. The street style is filled with leather, floral, cutoff shorts, belts, snapbacks, and so much more. I love dressing chic and sophisticated, but with a spin. I add cool boho prints or unique patterns to make my outfits have texture and a different style. I can’t wait to share more of my fashion ideas and experiences with you.
This past week, I went to Orlando, Florida for five days for a national competition. We stayed at the All Star Disney Music Resort, which was amazing because I had never stayed at a Disney affiliated hotel before. During our stay, we took a ton of pictures at the picturesque hotel, went shopping at Disney Springs, and spent the day at Universal.
There were more colored walls than I could count, so that meant a bunch of pictures opportunities and a poppin’ Instagram. The beautiful scenery that encompassed the resort made it the perfect picture location. We also had two pools, shaped like a guitar and piano, which we used for late night swims.
Disney Springs was a fun adventure. We ate at Rainforest Cafe and Wolfgang Puck (delicious food, lemme tell ya). We shopped around at the numerous stores that lined the streets, and then got a delicious chocolate cupcake from Sprinkles. And if that wasn’t enough chocolate, the next day, my friend and I shared a huge chocolate milkshake from the famous Planet Hollywood.
Universal: Islands of Adventure
An amusemt park, aka my happy place. I love love love going on big roller coasters, so Universal was a blast for me. I went on literally all the rides and got soaked as well. From superheroes, to cartoons, to Harry Potter world, I saw and enjoyed it all.
High school is over. It’s time for new beginnings and new adventures. What awaits me is unknown but exciting. It’s time for me to venture out on my own and find myself in a new place.
Graduation was one of the happiest yet saddest days. I was finally receiving my diploma, after twelve years of hard work; I was getting ready to pursue my dreams at college. Yet, college is scary and foreign territory. I think, though, I’m ready for a new challenge, a way for me to push myself and achieve my goals.
However, there are 5 things I’ll miss about my high school (boarding school version):
Talking to your friends that live down the hall from you.
Ordering late night pizza and drowning your sorrows with conversation and food.
Never worried about missing class because your roommate would wake you up.
Going on spontaneous photo shoots around campus.
Having food stocked up in your dorm room, available to eat at any moment.
So, as the doors of high school close, the gates of college open. It’s a new adventure: whatever you make of it.
Today, I’m coming at you with more summer outfit inspiration. For this look, I’m wearing blue shorts from Dry Barn, a rust colored tee from Forever 21, and black sandals from Macy’s. This outfit is a perfect daytime look:)
It’s finally summer break for me, so that means crop tops and shorts. My first outfit post for summer 2017 consists of black and white colors. I went to the mall with my family and wore a black and white striped, off the shoulder, top, black high waisted shorts, and mauve sandals. The outfit is perfect for a casual evening.
Ireland. The Emerald Isle. One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited.
I was fortunate to visit Ireland for a school trip with some of my closest friends. On our ten day trip, we went backpacking through the country, visiting the sights, conversing with the people, and tasting the delicious food. We visited Dublin, Ballintoy, Portrush, and Newgrange. We went hiked Giant’s Causeway, saw the hexagonal rocks, and surfed the clear Irish waters. After hiking about 65 miles, traveling to 4 cities, and living in 1 backpack, I can easily say that this country was one of my favorite travel destinations ever. If you ever have the chance to visit Ireland, I hope you take because it is truly an incredible place.
I hope these pictures show you a glimpse of my adventures.
This year I had my senior prom. I went with my best friends and had such a memorable time. This past Saturday all my friends came over to my house to get glammed up for prom! I got my hair curled that morning and my nails painted a few days before that.
After getting ready for prom, my friends and I took pictures in my backyard. My sister was my ‘personal photographer,’ which was great to have because she took some amazing pictures (thanks girl). After a million pictures, we headed to a nearby area where there was a gazebo and beautiful flowers. We took many more pictures here, which turned out so pretty and a way for me to remember the night by.
We then headed to dinner at a local country club and had a great meal with each other. After (finally) getting our checks and paying, we headed to prom!!
I danced the night away with my friends to I Spy, Cupid Shuffle, and countless Beyonce songs. We left around 11:45 and headed back to our dorms to get ready for after-prom!
After-prom was a BLAST! I went rock climbing, rolled around in those guinea pig balls, did a “Wipeout-esque” game, took one to many polaroid pictures, and ate delicious great nachos and cheese. Senior prom was an amazing night that I got spend with my favorite people:)
It was such a nice spring day, so I was thrilled to take out my tanks and jean shorts to dress for the weather!
On this day, I had a spring photo shoot:) We went to a nearby park and took a bunch of photos using sunglasses and flowers as props. It was a ton of fun with my some of my favorite people!!
For my outfit, I am wearing an army green tank from Macy’s, jean shorts from Aeropostale, and sandals from Macy’s. To accessorize, I wore some fun heart shaped sunglasses, heart earrings, my Anne Klein watch, and a pretty blue flower that my friend had. My friend also tucked a white and yellow flower into my hair, which added the perfect spring touch. Hope you got some outfit inspo from this!!
