Model Behavior

Hi all! Sorry I am a few days late on the usual Friday post. I have had such a busy weekend! But better late than never right? So for this week I am featuring the fantastic Arizona Muse. She has been in the fashion world since 2008, and she never ceases to amaze me with her fantastic style. 

She is so classic and chic. She seems to stick to the basics, but is never too scared to make her look a tad edgy. And can you believe she is a mother? I mean I hope to look half as good and dress half as well as she does when I am a mother. She is one of the most sought out models of this time, and she always looks fantastic on and off the runway! Here's to mothers who walk the runway and still manage to look fierce.

Down on Me

It has been so fantastic these past few days! I mean everything seems to be falling into place perfectly. I mean I got the job I wanted, I got a possible internship, and I got to see the Hunger Games last night. Seriously, nothing can bring me down. And to go along with a perfect day had to be the perfect outfit. 

For the day I pulled inspiration from my favorite era, which is obviously the 60s. I paired a pair of vintage shorts with my Francescas tank, Charlotte Rousse leather jacket, Free People Socks, and thrifted boots and scarf. I felt a little bit like one of my favorite singers, Janis Joplin. Carefree about what I wore. It is such a fantastic feeling. 

Have you all had a day that was completely fantastic lately?

Casual Tuesday

What I consider the most difficult day of the week has come again. Casual Tuesday. Another day to attempt to put together a "casual" outfit without looking absolutely unkempt. It really is helping me be able to broaden my style horizons. So for today I went with the little grunge look. Thought the Woodstock era is my absolute generation, I have always had a soft spot for the grunge scene of the 90s. People like Marc Jacobs, Courtney Love, and Angela Chase from My So Called Life have all inspired me in different ways. It is just a style that is so chill and free. I mean what is not to love about flannel shirts, combat boots, and floral dresses? It is so fantastic. 

For today I went with my absolute favorite combat boots that I pair with almost everything, a vintage tshirt that I got in Akron, and a pair of ripped up jean shorts. It just felt so incredibly grunge to me. I was listening to Hole and Garbage all day which really added to how fantastic I felt. 

Do you guys find the 90s to be a fantastic era full of good music and fun fashion. Or tacky as many do full of hammer pants and scrunchies? 
Thank you all for reading, dears.

Hey Mr. Tambourine Man

50 years ago today Bob Dylan's very first album was released! 
I can't believe it has been a half a century that we've been listening to the amazing voice and lyrics of Dylan.

For as long as I can remember I've been listening to Bob Dylan's music. Both of my parents are partially obsessed with him, so his songs were always playing around the house and on family road trips. It wasn't until I was older that I realized how much he truly inspired me, in both my style and my way of thinking. I have always loved the 1960s and their way of life, with the free thinking hippies and fantastic music scene, it has always been the time I have wanted to travel back to. 
Dylan was the ringleader of the time. Without him we wouldn't have half of the musicians that we have today. He has inspired so many in style and in music. No words can describe how amazing he truly is. 

These lovely little pictures are from a St. Patricks day photoshoot my friend Krista did of me! I paired my American Eagle jeans with an H&M top and Aldo flats. 

Do you have a favorite Bob Dylan song or artist of the Woodstock era?
Thanks for reading, all!

Model Behavior

Happy second week of Model Behavior, all! For this week I decided to showcase the wonderful style of Chanel Iman. She has been on the scene for quite some time and her style never ceases to amaze me! 

Chanel Iman has mastered being able to go from boho chic to girly rocker in an instant. I love how she can pull off wearing jeans and a tshirt and make it look completely fantastic. Just like Karlie she looks flawless on and off the runway. It truly inspires me that she does not stick to one single trend or one single style. She is always changing it up. From walking on the Michael Kors to the Victoria Secret runway, she is someone we need to watch for a long time. 

Thank you all for reading!

Nothing Like a Lazy Day

I have seriously been in love with the last few days! The weather has been perfect, people have been so happy, and everything has been falling into place. The campus looks just like the brochures. Everyone is just lying out on the quad attempting to do homework, but in all reality they are playing frisbee and working on tans. It is such a beautifully lazy day.

For this beautiful day I paired one of my favorite pair of high waisted shorts that I got in Thailand with an H&M shirt, H&M cheetah flats and Ray Ban sunglasses. It was an outfit that was extremely easy to lounge around in. Days like these really make me miss living in the middle of nowhere because it is acceptable to run around the fields...but seeings how I do not live anywhere near a field, frolicking was a tad difficult.

How do you all like to spend sunny lazy days? 

Thank you all for reading, loves.

Casual Tuesday

Happy belated Tuesday everyone! I hope everyone had a fantastic day! Today was my second time attempting to dress "casually." It is easier than I thought. You can easily take something like a simple pair of jean shorts and make them fun and fashionable. 

For this ever so beautiful day, I decided to pair my high waisted F21 shorts with an Urban Outfitters crop top, Charlotte  Russe leather jacket, Free People socks, and lastly my favorite Ray Ban sunglasses to tie it all together. It has been absolutely gorgeous these last few days. The temperature has been up near the 60s, the sun has been shining and everyone is so positive. And what makes a day even a little bit better than a fantastic outfit? Am I right?! 

Thank you all for reading! And check out the feature my friend Gillie did on my blog!

Here Comes the Sun

The past few days have been absolutely fantastic! We really got a little glimpse of spring in the weather. I couldn't help but sit outside all day under a tree doing homework. It was so difficult not to skip every class and bask in the sun. 

For the first day of nice weather I decided to wear my maxidress from PacSun, Zara sweater, and my first pair of TOMs. I felt like such a hippie sitting in the sun! This is a definite go to spring outfit. It is so breezy and flowy, but still keeps you somewhat warm. 

What is your favorite summer/spring outfit? Do you go with shorts or dresses?

Model Behavior

 A big part of finding inspiration for my own style is looking to those in the fashion industry. I look to editors, models, designers, photographers, and other bloggers. So from now on, every Friday I am going to showcase some of my favorite fashion girls styles. To kick start this new thing I decided to go with my absolute favorite model: the lovely Karlie Kloss!

I searched high and low online to find my favorite street style of her's. Being almost the same age, Karlie has always been a big inspiration to me. Though I will never be able to do the things she does in the modeling world (seeings how I am only 5'3) I take so much from her style. 
She always looks so chic on an off the runway. She has definitely mastered the art of mixing girly and edgy. Though she works in an extremely mature industry, she is able to keep her youth in her style. This young girl from St. Louis is definitely someone to keep an eye on for years to come.  

 Do you all have a favorite model that has killer style??
Thank you all for reading!

Click Your Heels and Think of Me

Ever since I was a little kid, I have had pretty much the exact same style. Red combat boots, dresses, or jean shorts. I guess not much has change right. I always think that these boots could be like a modern day "Wizard of Ozesque" shoots. I mean when I click my heels together I shoot right back home... well I wish I did. For the day I paired them with my absolute favorite dress that I got in Italy and my Free People socks. 

Has your style changed immensely since you were a kid? Do your favorite childhood movies still have an influence on what you wear? Or am I the only weirdo that lives in the past?
Thanks for reading, all! 

^^those are my childhood boots!

Casual Tuesday

Going to private schools my entire life a dress code has always been enforced. I was never really able to wear my favorite dresses because they were deemed "inappropriate." That is why when I graduated I started wearing dresses almost everyday! I absolutely adore feeling girly and pretty, and I usually don't get that when I wear pants. So anyways, my friend decided that I need to start dressing casual once a week. When I usually think of "casual" in college I always think of people wearing sweatpants and uggs. I am sorry, I just cannot bring myself to do that, even at home. Then I came to realize, you can still be fashionable while being casual. I will be making Tuesdays devoted to casual wear, and how you can still style it fashionably. I hope you all enjoy! 

For my first day of casual Tuesday, I went with my favorite black American Eagle jeans, Ralph Lauren jean shirt, Urban Outfitters infinity scarf, and sparkly TOMs that I wore to my prom. I was still able to keep my personal style without having resort to sweats to be casual. 

I challenge all of you fashionistas to do one casual day out of the week! 
Thanks for reading, loves.
