I hope ya’ll are having a great weekend so far! My bf + I spent all day today shooting new looks (I am SO excited to share them with ya). Currently, we are watching Netflix while I blog away…Anyways…today’s post is one I am super excited about because it revolves around one of my favorite subjects, an accessory I wear every single day…SUNGLASSES! No matter the occasion or season, sunnies are always in style + I am rounding up some of my favorites below!
Whether you like to splurge on designer glasses or opt for more affordable options, I have got ya covered! My favorites are always my RayBans or my Diff Eyewear pairs.
I am C O A C H E L L A bound! It’s almost here – festivalseason! That means it is time for some desert vibes + comfy outfits…like this one 😉 I got Coachella ready thanks to Boohoo and their Coachella gifting suite last week in LA – the perfect opportunity to snag those great boho pieces I will be wearing all weekend long like this denim boyfriend jacket! The best part? They had a customize denim bar so they created the LA skyline on the jacket for me, pretty cool right?
This print was actually spray printed on (fashion meets art…something I LOVE). The jacket itself is super comfy and is under $60 making it a must have for your wardrobe since it can be worn year round with jeans, skirts, dresses + beyond…can’t go wrong with some classic denim!
I layered it over a simple lace dress (the one I will be wearing for Day 1 of Coachella this weekend). I love lightweight, easy pieces that match with everything and are comfy as well. I am linking to a few of my favorite lace dress below (ideal for festival season).
White Mountain shoes has the best shoes for adventure filled weekends. Whether you are searching for flats, sandals, wedges or heels, White Mountain has stylish picks you will want that have the comfort and functionality you need!
Will you be heading to Coachella this weekend? ♥ Message me so we can meet up!
Happy Monday ♥ I am definitely having a case of the Monday Blues today…I spent this past weekend in Palm Springs to kick off my birthday week (I can’t believe I am turning 25 on Friday…a quarter of a century old…it’s all down hill from here right? :p) JK…have to look at the bright side, with older age comes wisdom, better style + class and elegance that takes years to achieve.
Anyways…while I am still 24, I love to sport casual cozy looks like this one with my winter signature essentials…a blanket scarf + OTK boots! I love when comfort + style intersect and with these boots and this scarf, that’s exactly what happens!
Don’t you just love when sunshine is beaming down on you and you are warm and toasty in your outfit? I sure do!
Happy Monday Ya’ll! ♥ I know I am not southern, but I kinda feel like if I were to live in the South I would be a total ‘Southern Belle‘ + I would be saying ‘ya’ll’ a lot…haha :p Anyways, time to get back to the everyday rise + grind after a relaxing Thanksgiving Day Weekend! ICYMI – today is CYBER MONDAY + that means some of the best online shopping deals (luckily I rounded up my picks the other day for Black Friday + a lot of the sales are similar for today as well)!
One site that is having killer deals today is Zaful.com…where I got this color block maxi dress from (perfect for fall, winter or year round depending how you style it). Zaful is currently having FREE SHIPPING world wide – no minimum purchase required, that means you can shop the styles you love + not worry about those pesky shipping costs. My dress is available in multiple colors + is under $20! See it here.
I seriously LOVE this dress + even though it is lightweight, I layered my favorite faux leather moto jacket over it to give it an edgy look making it perfect for work or play 🙂
Here are a couple of my current favorite moto jackets (both under $100)
I still can’t get enough of these mirrored sunnies (two similar options below)
My shoes are from De Blossom Collection, I love the comfortable platform design + the mixed tone hues that can be dressed up or down for work or a night out (I shot a cute holiday look with these babies over the weekend so stay tuned)!
My trusteeLouis Vuitton Speedy Bag has been with me since high school and has been a great signature piece to have for all occasions.
Happy Wednesday ♥Here’s to sunny days ahead + a bright outlook!ICYMI, I have been in a bit of a funk lately…I haven’t really been feeling like myself + that has made me a little unmotivated when it comes to blogging (as well as a bunch of other things). In the spirit of trying to use my site as a creative outlet + get more personal in hopes of helping others, I decided to get real with this post.
Over the past few months I began feeling like I was loosing myself, like I was doing the same thing day in + day out without any happiness or excitement. It is definitely an icky feeling, so in trying to get back to myself again, I went to the doctor to seek some professional advice on whether this was a normal funk, a quarter of a life crisis perhaps? (haha I hear that’s a real thing) or something else all together. Well it turns out I have been feeling off because I am experiencing depression. It’s hard to describe because I think people envision depression as wanting to be in bed all day, hiding under the covers + crying (which trust me…some days I definitely feel like doing), however there is ‘high functioning depression‘ where you go ahead + try to kick a** everyday but still feel sad, anxious + hopeless inside…so that is the current boat I am in (sorry this isn’t more ‘upbeat’ but I think maybe some people can relate to this + if this can help one other person not feel like they are battling similar issues alone, that makes me feel better to be there to say ‘it’s ok’).
Going through this has been literally one of the most difficult challenges of my life. Picking up my life, moving cross country, leaving my family + loosing that safety net of stability has been tough…along with some other ups + downs along the way, all together these bumps in the road have been weighing on me. So now I am in this difficult place where I feel like I am stuck in this negative rut but also trying to find a way out of it + feel better. Of course there are many options out there to cure such feelings but figuring out what is best for you + your well being is the challenge…Stay tuned for this, I am currently researching some options + want to be able to kind of track my progress throughout my posts till I hopefully feel like myself again 🙂 Maybe this is a growing pain I am supposed to share…or at least that’s how I am looking at it!
If you are going through this struggle or have overcome it, I would LOVE to hear your stories + experiences 🙂

Since I am trying to regain my happiness + find a ‘brighter‘ outlook on life, I felt it was only suiting to do a post rounding up some of my favorite sunnies that have been trending this fall!
I discovered ILY Mix through instagram (you know, where everyone finds their new favorite places to shop haha) + then went over to their site + became OBSESSED with their selection of fabulous sunnies ♥
Two pairs I am loving (both shown in this post hehe :p) are available on ILYMix.com + retail for under $20 a pair! What a steal!
The first pair is the Double Crossbar Metal Aviator Sunglasses (pictured below) – they are chic, a perfect go-to for daily wear + they remind me of a similar style from Dior (except for a fraction of the price).
The other style I am loving from ILY Mix is the Flat Front Metal Sunglasses. This has been such a popular style over the past couple of months + I was looking for a pair with a pink mirrored hue, so these ones are perfect! (pictured below)
