Friday Favorites!

I'm pretty stoked, because not only is this weekend going to be beautiful in the Northwest, but my classes also got canceled (aka three day weekend, aka more time to do an impossible amount of homework)! I thought that I wouldn't have time to post this favorites post until this evening, but now I am able to post it earlier, although still not as early as I would have liked. Anyways, here are a few of my current favorite pieces of inspiration that I hope will inspire you as well!

Beauty Wish List: Drugstore Makeup for Spring


Do you ever have those weeks where you feel inspired (more than usual) to revamp your makeup collection? Maybe it's just me, but those weeks definitely come and sometimes go. This week I was feeling inspired to add more color to my makeup look as well as add a little more coverage, since I have been having some skin problems recently. 

The Maybelline Dream Pure BB CreamMilani Baked Blush in "Luminoso", and NYX Butter Gloss in "Maple Blondie" were actually on my wish list last year, which may show that I have a hard time going through and spending money on makeup. A newer product on the list include the L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Powder, which has some good reviews since its recent release. The last product on my wishlist is the Revlon HD Lipstick in "HD Orchid". I actually started to gravitate to this color when I saw Brit from 'The Bachelor' wearing a similar color on the show. I am really inspired to add some color to my look during the warmer months, so this lipstick seems to be perfect. 

What products are on your wish list?

Spring Florals


Nothing screams spring like floral. Every year, flroals are a reoccurring trend for the spring, and can sometime feel repetitive, however, there are ways to wear floral that are fresh and modern. One huge trend that I have been noticing are larger floral prints. Larger floral prints are not only fresh, but are often times colorful and have a more spring-feel than the smaller, less detailed floral prints.

Florals are also the perfect option for not only causal outings, but for more formal occasions. Floral tops paired with a pair of jeans or a floral skirt paired with a solid colored top are fun ways to add print to your outfit during the day. At night, a simple floral dress with a pair of nude wedges is the perfect if you want some color in your look. Whether you wear floral during the day or night, the print is a great way add life to any outfit.

(On a final note: Every time I see floral prints during the spring I can't help but think of The Devil Wears Prada...)

Get the Style: Gigi Hadid Street Style


I must first confess. The first time that I saw Gigi Hadid was on The Real Housewives, where she was working her way towards being a model. Even though watching several episodes of the RHOBH was not one my finest moments, you could tell from watching the show that Gigi was going to be big in the modeling world. Gigi is also becoming big in the fashion world, including her chic street style. The key to Gigi's street style is to start off with the basics. Once you have the basics, you then have a base where you can add more trendier pieces for more detail. Continue reading to see the three outfits inspired by Gigi!

Outfit 1

Top / Jacket / Jeans / Sunglasses / Bag / Shoes
If you're looking for a spring outfit that doesn't include floral or bright colors, this first outfit is perfect for you! First wear a black tee with a pair of relaxed distressed jeans, cuffing the bottom of the jeans. For a pop of color, add a patterned blue sweater or jacket (if you want to pay $639 for the exact jacket she was wearing, I actually came across it here). For accessories, go for a black satchel and a pair of white sneakers. Lastly, don't forget to add a pair of round sunglasses!

Outfit 2

This next look is the most relaxed and casual of the three inspired outfits. Start the look by wearing a loose white tee. If you want a similar look to Gigi, add a colorful bralette underneath the tee. For a little bit of edge, add a pair of black faux leather leggings. Complement the black leggings with a pair of gold and black sandals. Finish the look with a black crossbody bag and a pair of aviator sunglasses.

Outfit 3

Tee / Jacket / Jeans / Sunglasses / Bag / Boots
This last outfit is perfect for those who want to look put-together and stylish while still being comfortable. Start off by pairing together a blue baseball tee with a pair of distressed skinny jeans. Next, add a black bomber-style jacket to help pull the look together. Add a pair of cat-eye style sunglasses with a brown crossbody bag (the exact on Gigi was wearing). Finish the look with a pair of black booties.

Friday Favorites!

If you go to a Jesuit college or any Christian-affiliated college, then you, like myself, are also pretty psyched to have a four day weekend. Although I’ll probably just be studying this long weekend (thanks to my professors who assigned an impossible amount of reading), it never hurts to have a few extra days off! As for the post, here are some of my recent favorite pieces of inspiration!

White Jeans | Spring Trends 2015


Outfits for Inspiration

White Jeans: Dangerous but chic. White is always the perfect way to refresh your spring and summer wardrobe, however, white jeans seem to have the tendency to scare some people, including myself. I used to never consider buying a pair of white pants, because I would assume that within a few hours, it would look not-so-white. However, if you are careful, I think that white jeans are the perfect way to brighten any outfit. Since it is neutral, it will also go with everything, including all patterns and colors.

If you're unsure on how to wear white jeans, an easy way to pull them off is by pairing them with a colorful top or bright accessories. This helps keep the focus on the top or accessory and there is no need to worry about clashing. White jeans also work great with a pair of nude wedges, since the wedges help keep the look light and fresh.

Even Shorter


I've always been pretty careful when it comes to cutting my hair. For some reason, I'm always nervous that the hairstylist will cut my hair too short or make my layers too choppy. Those reasons are part of why I have kept my hair on the longer side for years. That and I generally like longer hair and feel as if I can do a lot more with longer hair. With that said, for some reason, I have recently been wanting a change and I have particularly been liking the "lob" trend.


This cut was kind of impulsive. Since I'm not daring enough to have most of my locks chopped off, I decided the day before to cut my hair more than 4 inches (not quite a lob). I also asked for layers and layers framing the face. And my hairstylist got it on-point. I had an idea of how I wanted my hair (based on pictures I saw on Pinterest), and it's like my hairstylist read my mind! It's less soft and more textured and messy than I'm used to, but sometimes it's nice to have a little change!

Friday Favorites!

I honestly can not believe it's already Friday. This week was my spring break and I feel like I've been at home for only a couple days. It has rained most of the week, but the sunshine finally came out and it has finally started to feel like spring. With the spring feels, I have also been loving any sort of spring inspiration. Here are some of my recent fashion and miscellaneous inspirations I found over the week.
