my 2018 resolutions + a little playlist

  I’ve really taken time this week to reflect on the past year, both on my own in thought, and with you guys in the form of my 2017 photo diary. My two favorite holidays are Halloween and New Year’s Eve, and I have my own personal rituals that come with the new year. My…

2017: my year in photos

2017 was raw. For me, it was a collision of trying new things, hardships, big life decisions, heartbreaks, anger, pure joy, and, most importantly, growth. This year, I went to Disneyland (twice!), Portland, LA, Detroit, New York, Tucson. I saw countless bands live and I worked two internships. I graduated college. I turned 21. I…

portland.

I’m back from the dead on here! After finishing school forever and alleviating the majority of my stress, I craved a little mini trip up to Portland. My friend Cheyenne (@cheyp on instagram) was so gracious to host me for the 36 hours I was there, and we squeezed a lot of cool things into…

my thoughts on quality shoes + early fall diary

I have a bit of a ranting diary post, so I’ll preface this with what I’m wearing to save y’all the grief. The denim I am wearing is from BDG at Urban Outfitters — I love their pieces because they are designed for curvy girls like me, and I feel so confident in them! I…

a casual fall look!

[Sponsored by Zappos] Fall is finally upon us! I am so excited to share all of the transitional outfits I’ve been shooting for you guys! I figured this one is a good place to start — just a casual little look with a band tee and quality details. My favorite thing to do is mix…

la, la, how the life goes on

I decided to throw you guys a curveball and wear a red floral print, hahaha. I’ve always loved florals — they’re my absolute favorite and remind me of all of the vintage dresses I bought in high school at my local goodwill. This dress is from Fame and Partners, and it combines florals with some…

how I take care of myself on a busy schedule

(Click here to jump to the list!)School is back in session for the last time for me, and this is usually the time of year that my worst personal flaw comes out. Although I have been putting in extra effort to take better care of myself and set time aside to unwind, I have this…

monday bookmarks | 8.14.17

I feel bad that I've been a bit behind on posting, so here is the next Monday Bookmarks post, chock full of the past two weeks of visual inspirations. I've felt under an immense amount of stress the past couple weeks in preparation for my last semester of college — there is so much to…

monday bookmarks | 7.31.17

This week was very similar to last. In lieu of monsoon season, I find myself lusting for fall and listening to nostalgic music. I shit you not when I say that I’m currently wearing a cardigan and drinking hot coffee while listening to early Death Cab For Cutie and occasionally looking out the window at…

an ocean of violets in bloom

I’ve had When Doves Cry stuck in my head for at least a week. I remember when I was younger my parents saw Prince on his Musicology tour and I wanted to go so badly. My parents brought back a CD for me to listen to and I used to imagine what that concert would…
