The Midi Skirt

Being 5’1″, I never thought I’d see the day where a midi skirt ended up in my closet. I’ve always thought it was an awkward place for a skirt to end, and that it was only a flattering look on those 5’9″ and up. Well, surprise, surprise…I was wrong. Society is always telling women what to wear. Short women shouldn’t wear this, tall women shouldn’t wear that…yada yada. The best thing you can do for yourself is to wear what you feel comfortable wearing. We tend to judge ourselves a lot harsher than the people around us do, so if you’re…

Trading a Purse for a Backpack

One of my favorite words in the English dictionary is convenience. I choose flats over heels, a five minute makeup routine over a 30 minute one, and of course I choose a backpack over a purse. Don’t get me wrong; there are days when I like to dress up in heels, spend extra time on my makeup, and carry a purse around. However, most of the time I just like to be comfortable. By backpack, I don’t mean Jansport or L.L. Bean. Think smaller and more stylish. If it has two straps that hook onto my shoulders and it looks good while…

Simple Blue Stripes

Maybe it’s just the bell sleeves, but this top gives me major vintage vibes. Just pair it with some flare jeans and it’ll look like you stepped out from a different decade! I love that we’re constantly recycling styles from the fashonistas before us. This past fall I remember being so confused walking through the clothing section at Target because it felt like I was in the 90s! All the clothes looked like something you’d wear to a Nirvana concert. I’m always fascinated by trends; we get embarrassed by things such as what we wore, how we applied our makeup, styled our hair,…

My Favorite Sandals

I’m not going to lie to you guys: I used to own a pair of Birkenstock clogs in elementary school back when clogs were the thing. (Remember when all your classmates wanted to own a pair of Crocs?? Those are the days I’m talking about.) After they went out of style, I tossed them to the side and never owned another pair of shoes from Birkenstock again. Well, that was the case until recently. No, I didn’t buy another pair of clogs. I’m not ready for that…yet. Instead, I bought a pair of pink suede sandals from Birkenstock. I’ve been wanting a pair of comfy, durable…

Outfit Diary: Polka Dot Romper

Let me start off by saying that American Eagle has been killing it lately with their clothes selection! I’ve been shopping at AE since middle school. While I ‘grew out’ of it for awhile, their brand has evolved into something appropriate for a variety of ages, so I’m happy to be shopping there again. Their clothes are good quality, not overly trendy, and affordable (especially when they have sales, which is pretty often!) I’m especially a fan of their jeans. They are also one of the few brands that makes “petite” sizes, which has been an absolute lifesaver for my short…
