POWDER PINK WINTER

So, who else enjoyed the rain the hit us today in the U.S? Wasn't that pretty neat? Well not for me because I really wanted to take pictures outside today, but I was not willing to be wet and cold at all. The struggle, lol. I kinda spent my day playing Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix and watching Supernatural ( I'm barely on season 2 -____- ). I honestly feel inspired like crazy and want to reinvent myself somehow. Maybe a haircut? New Make-up trends to try? Hello 2015 me, trying to bust-in all super early, lol. I know we all have New Years resolutions, but how are you trying to reinvent yourself for the new year? Let meh know! ♡

Marble Crystal Necklace c/o Crystal & Casings
Bustier: H&M ( similar )
Pants: Zara ( similar )

Yes I know, I'm wearing the practically the same colors as the last post and they both have something in common. Adding a bit edge to a sweet look or vice versa. I dearly love the powder pink + black combination for winter. I think it's totally refreshing instead of just an all black look. I bought this H&M bustier back in October for my last minute Halloween costume (I have no idea what I was) and I really wanted to wear it again! I had no idea how I would style it into a daily costume until I realized I had the same shade of pink on my H&M fuzzy cardigan and my hand-me-down Zara pants! From there, I added of course my signature Calico hat, Crystal & Casings marble necklace, and Topshop sliders. Finally to add some edge, I put on my Deandri suspender harness!

FALL SEMESTER IS OVER!

   It feels soooooo great to be blogging again! I can't believe how busy I was with school and working at the same time. I literally had no time for myself whatsoever. Kudos to those who go to school, work, and blog! You must be so damn good with time management, lol. Any who, how is everyone doing?! It's been so long since I've actually looked at my blog lol. I hoped everyone had a great Thanksgiving and looking towards the holidays as much as I am. Jeez, I have no idea where to start with my current life to be honest. I'll probably leave that to another post because there's just SO much. Ahhhhh, sorry that I'm all over the place, I'm just so excited!

Marble Crystal Necklace c/o Crystal & Casings

So I've been so obsessed with matching an all black outfit with a pop of color lately. I matched my H&M powder pink fluffy cardigan to soften up this all black outfit. My favorite piece of this outfit is my custom-made Marble Crystal Necklace from Crystal & Casings! It's such a classic touch to this look that adds more texture then just the fluffy sweater. The satin bralette is so freakin' cute too but unfortunately I'm not that full around the chest area so it's kinda of loose on the sides, hence why I wore my cardigan lol. Psh, no way am I going to waist money on a garment and not wear it lol. Finally, I wore my Night Watch Cutout Booties from Calico and I have not taken them off ever since I got them. There's so many way of dressing these babies up or down. Have you guys been seeing a lot of "pop" of color added to all black outfits this fall?

STILL FALLING INTO SUMMER

I went on a photoshoot/mini date with my boyfriend at The Blvd. and it was so random and fun. We were running a little late but thank god for golden hour. It's always the best time to actually take photos. While we were out, we discovered some hidden gems like an Italian custard shop and of a little taco shop. Yes, we totally had dessert first and then pork tacos (with cilantro, onions, and hot sauce. It totally deserved it's own mention). It was so freakin' good! Unfortunately our date was cut short because I had to babysit my baby sister. It was still a fun day and a memory to keep. ♡

Hawaiian Top: Thrifted
Shorts: Thrifted

I'm ready for Fall but I guess California isn't. I mean, today was 91 degrees (F)! Totally ridiculous! To survive this bizarre weather, I went straight to my Night Watch Cutout Booties I received from Calico! I'll have a post dedicated to them soon! I just couldn't wait to style them. I literally got them in the mail today, lol. Since it felt like summer, I thought I should go ahead and wear this hawaiian top I recently picked up from a thrift store. The color is so amazing, perfect for my red trend that's happening right now. ♡

OFFICIAL PYLO BABE

I'm trying so hard not to talk about how effin' tired I am right now, but it is so hard because that's the way I feel. Happy 1st day of October! Are you guys ready for the sweater weather, eating pounds of candy until you're in a candy coma, and of course dressing up for Halloween? My answer, hell yes. The the moment I started wearing jeans again is the moment I want the cold breeze to start and the simmering sun to calm down and take a break until next year. You guys have any thoughts on your costumes yet? I think I'm leaning towards Harley Quinn. ♡

Crop Top: Image
Coin Necklace: Dollar Store

YAAAAASSSSSS. I finally get to wear my PYLO Gypsy Denim Bellbottoms that I've been drooling over for ages! I won these a while back from Jill of Little Black Boots competition (check out her blog for awesome mod/boho looks & inspiration). The fit of these jeans are beyond amazing and actually fit true to size, well besides the length. The length of the jeans were super long for me so I actually had to alter them to my height (5'2) so they wouldn't drag on the floor. I love that they're super high-waisted and what better way to style high-waisted jeans than a classic b&w striped crop top from Image?  Also, to give myself a little more height, I wore my Schoolz Sandals since they're mini platforms. This girl is currently 3 inches closer to heaven. ♡

RED, BLACK, & METALLICS

Happy friday everyone! I'm spending my day watching Saturday Night Live and possibly going to the thrift store since I got a 40% off coupon! Yes, this is the highlight of my day, lol. Well also I have to work on a group project for my Intro to Fashion class. I have to create a line of clothing for all the consumer groups. Luckily, I got Generation X, which shouldn't be difficult. Even though I want to sleep & eat.

Plaid Overalls: Melrose Shop
White top: J. Crew

I really, really like this outfit! This look was inspired by fashion blogger Alyssa from Ordinary People's NYFW look. Definitely check her blog out if you enjoy minimalistic looks and great photos for inspiration. To create a look similar I wore MeUndies Rawk Tank, a pair of nylons that I haven't worn in FOREVER, Schoolz Sandals, bright red overalls I bought in Melrose, J. Crew top tied around my waist, and of course layers necklace.

 I love how red & black is becoming trendy this season. The pop of color to a minimal/simple outfit is really refreshing. Of course you have to add a hint of metallic elements to the look, but that's just my personal preference. ♡
