Moto jacket + stripes…

I had been looking for the perfect moto jacket  forever, but I couldn’t find one that was just right. At the beginning of the summer I was browsing around Target and I came across several moto jackets on clearance. I tried on several and I finally found a black one that I had to have. I got it on sale for $12! It fit perfectly and I’ll be wearing this one with my casual looks. I am still on the search for a dressy one and H&M usually has cute ones in there, so I’ll be going in there soon.

I wore this look last week when it was super chilly and I wasn’t in the mood to be too dressed up for class. The weather was perfect to finally wear my moto jacket so I was thrilled! I chose to pair it with a stripped top, because I happen to be obsessed with any and everything stripped. I have so many stripped shirts that its ridiculous, but who cares! I threw on some jeans along with oh so comfy UGGs because they’re my favorite shoes during the fall and winter.

How to wear a duster… | Part 1

I am completely obsessed with dusters! They are must haves for my wardrobe this fall and winter. I have been buying new ones for my wardrobe since the end of the summer. I just can’t resist buying them when I come across super cute ones! Not only are they stylish, but they are so versatile! I also love them because I am not a fan of wearing a coat, so they are perfect for fall days.

In this look I paired this grey duster with a stripped shirt and pair of jeans. I was running errands when I wore this look, but I still wanted to look cute. It was comfortable and perfect for the chilly fall day.

Black and white… | Collaboration with Asa of Lace and Pearls

Today is the final day of my collaboration with Asa of Lace & Pearls! Asa is one of the sweetest ladies ever! I am so happy that she happily accepted the invitation to do this challenge with me when I asked her.

The second and final look of our collaboration with is the classic black and white! Pairing black and white is so easy to do, so it was a no brainier when Asa and I were deciding what looks we wanted to do. The black dress is pretty simple, but the kimono is what completed this entire look. Kimonos are a staple in my wardrobe because they can be paired with so much!

Chambray & lace… | Collaboaration with Asa of Lace & Pearls

I am so happy to be collaborating with Asa of Lace & Pearls this week! Be sure to check out her blog if you haven’t already. Asa is one of the sweetest ladies ever! She also happens to be very stylish. Though we’ve never met each other in person, but I consider her one of my blogging friends! However, I do hope that we get the chance to meet each other one day! For our collaboration we both created two looks based upon our personal style.

The first look of our collaboration is about all about chambray. I am a total fan of chambray! It is classic and you can pair it with just about anything. I decided to pair my favorite chambray shirt with a lace skirt. I had been wanting to pair these two items together for a while, but I hadn’t had a chance to. I absolutely loved this look!

Be brave and willing…

Sometimes you have to be willing to let go even when it hurts…

Often times we want someone or something so bad, but time and time again things just don’t work out. Not only is this exhausting, but it affects you mentally and physically. If you have tried time and time again but your efforts are not coming together maybe the next best option is to let go. That does not mean that you are quitting, but it symbolizes you releasing something that just isn’t good for you anymore. Not only is this a scary feeling but is also makes you brave. Yes, it makes you brave! It takes a strong person to let go of someone or something because the feeling that comes after they or it is gone hurts like hell.  It might hurt for a period of time, but only you have the power to make YOU happy.

BE BRAVE AND WILLING.
