So I’m totally deviating from what I said in this post. “I guess I feel too ‘Barbie’ when I wear a ton of pink.” I threw that all out the window when I spotted this eyelash sweater. I might have broken out into song and dance like this when I saw it. It’s too good! I’ve been on the hunt for a pink fuzzy sweater and when I saw this had a sporty vibe with the black stripes to make it look less girly, I was sold. I then added all black leather accessories to contrast the feminine fabric of the sweater. To mirror the tough meets girly theme of my ensemble, I mixed gold spikes, studs, and arrows with delicate gold bows on my jewelry.

Have you seen Mochino’s Spring/Summer 2015 fashion show? It was completely Barbie inspired, and all the models had huge blonde wigs and wore pink from head to toe! They even had the plastic pink heels and hangers she had! I’m majorly craving this mirror iPhone case. Like, excuse me?!  How can something be so cute?

Did you know Barbie has an Instagram? Yes, I follow her. Yes, I am utterly, completely and madly obsessed with all of her outfits. Follow her (@barbiestyle) so we can die together over her OOTD’s like this one. She even does the “casual-lean-against-the-wall” pose all the bloggers do! Well played, Barbie, well played.

My Halloween outfit is following a similar theme as this post as well. I can’t wait to show you, I’m still adding the finishing touches (procrastination is my middle name) but it’s pretty much done. And no, I didn’t make it by hand like Lauren Conrad… I almost passed out when I saw her mermaid costume. Perfection!

I apologize for my brief absence! I was somewhat preoccupied with full-time school, midterms and my part-time internship. When I finally had the chance to get-away for fall break I ventured off to the happiest place on earth, Disneyland! It was decorated for “Halloween Time” and was nothing short of magical, per usual. But now it’s back to reality, unfortunately. And might I add what a very rude awakening it has been!

 I’m a total sucker for all things black and white. There’s just something so classic and timeless about it. Adding touches of red and gold seemed like a natural choice. I love the way these four colors mixed together lend themselves to a retro vibe so effortlessly, especially with this striped button up. It reminds me of a stewardess outfit from the 50’s or 60’s. I thought these retro shades added to the ensemble. However, I’m all about the unexpected details. So I shook it up with these extremely comfortable baggy track pants with the textured zippers to toughen it up a bit. Also, I think strappy sandals or high heels are the way to go with pants that cut off at the ankle like these. Booties or high tops don’t seem to flatter the ankles as well. Do you think otherwise? Let me know in the comments and I’d love to hear how you think I styled this black and white outfit too!

I have been really into the color green lately, especially forest green. It can be a surprising addition to an outfit and I love that. I also stated in my last post that I was trying to add more color into my wardrobe and this green is a good place to start.

How can I even put into words how much I love boots? Even though I live in Arizona, I still find any excuse to wear them. I think everyone should own a great pair of black boots. They are universally flattering! I especially love the detail on these ones, with the front scallops and the divot details (SWOON).

Equipment blouses are out of this world. Every design is so effortlessly classy. The fabric feels like butter and the instant you slip one on, you feel like you could accomplish anything.  Best of all is the endless styling possibilities. You can knot the front, tuck the top into jeans or a skirt, or wear them with leggings to cover your derrière. Believe you me, this brand is perfection.

The weather is getting cooler here in Arizona and it gets me pumped to pull out all my winter wear. I started off with a beanie because even though it is getting cooler, it still is in the high 80’s. I  pulled this outfit together, and then it dawned on me that with the flared jeans, leather purse and clogs that I was reppin’ a 70’s vibe. The vibrancy in my wardrobe has been sorely lacking, so adding more color is something that I am actively trying to focus on. I think this red beanie was a perfect and comfy addition.

Turning a basic black jumpsuit into something different is easy. All you need to do is add a sparkly piece and minimal jewelry and voilà, a new look for a night on the town! (not like I really do that anyway) I really do like jumpsuits, they are so easy to throw on and they look so put together in my opinion. No need to keep tucking and untucking your shirt because it is already done for you.

I am pretty much a no fuss person, I like items that I can wear multiple times without  people thinking, “Wait, didn’t you just wear that?” So if a piece is versatile then it makes me happy. Jumpsuits are in that category especially if they are a basic color.
