Since moving out to Los Angeles, it hasn’t been super easy to make friends that compare to my friends back home. It used to make me feel homesick until I realized that I would never be able to replicate that and that’s ok. That’s why they are so important to me and we make such an effort to visit each other even though we’re all scattered across the country. They are irreplaceable.
That being said, I’ve come to realize the great value of the new friends I have made in LA. I truly believe that people come into your life at specific times for a reason. I feel that since I’ve moved out here, the people who have come into mine are now my new irreplaceables. I have somehow unintentionally, but very luckily surrounded myself with people who have accepted me, motivated me, inspired me and supported me so incredibly much. I don’t know how I could ever repay these kinds of friends.
These photos and this outfit tell a story that goes beyond just pics for a fashion blog. The shirt and necklace were lent to me by my friend after I told her that her outfit was adorable and I wanted to feature it on my blog. I meant that I wanted to take pictures of her in it, but next thing I know, she’s literally taking the shirt off her back for me and she gave it to me to wear for a blog post. I decided to pair it with white cut off shorts because I’m super into the white on white look right now!
My other friend is the one who took these photos. She enjoys photography, I enjoy doing fashion blog pics and we enjoy hanging out with each other…so that’s all there is to it. She asks for nothing in return. It’s friends like these that I am so incredibly grateful for. She also pushed me to start this blog, she helped me design it and she referred me for a part time job as a stylist at StitchFix.com, WHICH I GOT! I look at where I was before I moved out here and how certain things were only a far fetched dream and where I am now… a fashion stylist and blogger. I may not have tons of followers, but this is my passion and I’m doing it. That’s what matters.
Thank you to my old friends who continue to love and support me unconditionally like sisters and to my new friends who I already feel like I’ve known forever who not only constantly push me to be my best self but take their time and energy to help me get there. I appreciate these people so incredibly much!

I am truly addicted to Urban Outfitters, you guys. I may need help. My roommate is at the point where she has to talk me out of going there… because if I do, I will spend money no matter WHAT. It’s absurd. When I lived in Michigan, I was addicted to browsing their website, but I didn’t order things very often because I couldn’t try them on. Now that I live in LA they are everywhere, including right down the street from me. This is dangerous…very very dangerous.
These are a couple of my favorite every day summery type items from there. Soon I will post a few dressier blouses and well… yeah, I’ll be posting a lot of outfits from there.
I love the peach cropped skinny jeans as well as the olive green hemmed shorts. I love love love colored jeans. I have almost every color of jeans you can think of. They are a great way to spruce up an otherwise simple outfit. I can just wear a white v-neck but with bright green skinny jeans and it’s far more head-turning than if they were just regular jeans. I do get a lot of compliments on these peach ones too.
I paired the peach jeans with a colorful striped tank which also has some of that same peach color in it. This tank is so comfy too! I also added a long gold necklace which looks like a sharks tooth or something, I just think it’s very simple and edgy at the same time.
The shorts I paired with a white tank with a green aztec inspired pattern. This tank is very flowy and light and has a very cute open back, which I can never get enough of in my tops.
I feel like Urban designed their clothes just for me. I love almost everything in there. My closet could be mistaken for an Urban Outfitters store. Do you get the point yet? I LOVE URBAN OUTFITTERS. Ok I’m starting to feel withdrawals, do you think they’re still open at 11:00pm? I’m gonna go check, byye!!!!
Stay in vogue!
