Spring Trend: Embroidered Denim

You don’t have to look further than your favorite ‘big-name’ clothing retailer to find an embroidered piece of denim. Embroidery is a huge trend this spring, and that’s clear to see because stores are chock full of it! I picked up a pair of embroidered jeans from Forever 21 a few months ago. They give me a hint of nostalgia; I feel like I would (or perhaps did) wear jeans just like them in elementary school! These jeans have been such a fun addition to my closet. I love that I can wear a simple top and have my jeans be the statement piece! What…

The Ultimate Thrift Shopping Guide

Growing up, my mom used to beg me to shop in the clearance section at stores. I am the youngest sibling in my family, and that means hand-me-downs! The rebellious nature in me always wanted new, new, new, and I kept this mentality for the majority of my life. That was until I discovered thrift shopping and how fun and adventurous it can actually be. Clothes shopping in a thrift store can be overwhelming. Oftentimes they have racks full of clothes lining the entirety of the store and you may not know where to start. Well, I’m here to help you! Here is…

The Perfect Poncho Sweater

Casual looks featured on blogs have always been my favorite. They’re practical, relatable, and they’re what I happen to wear the most. I stumbled upon this amazing poncho sweater from Red Dress Boutique the other day and ordered it right away. You can’t get much more casual than a poncho sweater in the fall; they’re so easy and effortless. If I find anything that remotely looks like a blanket on-the-go, I’m sold. Besides it being extremely cozy, I loved the dark mauve color and waffle knit pattern of this sweater. It’s perfect if you live somewhere that has moderate fall weather because…

Why Mustard Is My Go-To Color in the Fall

Fall is by far my favorite season. Something about the crisp air, colorful trees, and having a holiday around every corner seems to keep my spirits high. You know what else is one of my favorite things about fall? Mustard. Now, I’m not talking about the kind that you put on your hotdog (though I love that, too). I’m talking about the color mustard yellow. Most people would prefer to reach for browns, reds, deep greens, or anything dark or neutral in the fall, but for some reason I am drawn to this particular shade of yellow. It’s not obnoxiously…

Why I’ve Been Loving (& Living in) Flare Jeans

The skinny jean has reigned as queen for over a decade in the denim world. When I started wearing skinny jeans, I swore off every other type of jean for the longest time. Something about that slim fit that hugged every curve just right and the versatility of being able to easily dress them up or down made every other option of pant fall to the wayside. I remember when flare jeans were the only type of jean I owned growing up. Once high school hit, no one would be caught dead wearing them. You can imagine my skepticism when they re-emerged;…
