Chicago Diary Part 1 (and a FREE month of Rocksbox for you!)

chicago-tinseled-pink4

I have to say that the good thing about Des Moines is that it’s super easy to take day trips to some pretty poppin’ places, and that makes the little wanderluster in me veryyy pleased. Thankfully, Abigail was down to peace out of Iowa for the weekend and head to Chi town for a 5-hour […]

Don’t Ask Why NY x American Eagle | Open Back Cowl Tank

dont-ask-why-vs-tinseled-pink

Baby got BACK this week. Bet you guys didn’t know that American Eagle has an ultra cool, New York City-meets-Paris-meets-Los Angeles  line with a one-size-fits-all clothing called Don’t Ask Why NY. Well, now you do! One-size-fits-all brands tend to fit a smaller range of sizes, but I have to say I’ve been a fan for the […]

Sugar Bowl | Kylie Cosmetics

Sugar, yes please! If you’ve followed my Instagram the past few months, I’m wearing Kylie Lip Kits in like, every photo. So I thought, why not do a entire post dedicated to the collection I’ve started? And better yet, take photos with someone who I talk about them with 24/7 (seriously, we’ve got a lip […]

Check (and polka dots) please!

Just like the movie Clueless, the favored wardrobe staple in the film-plaid-has a zero percent chance of being forgotten. So after scoring this amazing black, white and brown plaid mini from Abercrombie near Thanksgiving break, I couldn’t wait to bring the 90s skirt into the 21st century (goodbye obnoxious mustard/matchy-matchy/scratchy fabric set). The best part […]

Whimsical Wigwam Wear (Part 2)

Nothing says lazy summer days and sunshine like a long lace dress and the perfect floppy hat to roam around in an exotic flower field, or grass, in my case! This week I’m revealing the second outfit my new photographer and friend Lauren Brown photographed at the Wigwam resort in Litchfield Park. I can’t get […]

Wigwam Resort Wear Part 1 (Express Look)

When I graduated high school three years ago, I knew there would be one girl I’d actually stay in touch with during college. It may have taken three years to reconnect, but it felt like we were sitting (or goofing off in) in AP U.S. History or a National Honor Society meeting again when she […]

Express/ TVFU May Collection Collab

April showers bring May flowers and another unbelievable collab with Express! This time, yours truly will have a feature on Express.com for most of May. Top fashion bloggers and models like Jourdan Dunn and Kate Upton are usually the ones I see while I’m shopping on the brand’s website…now people get to see me! *someone […]

8 Tips to Make it in Fashion (When You Don’t Live in a Fashion Capital)

One World Trade Center in New York City is about 2,409 miles away from my current home in Phoenix, but distance didn’t stop me from making connections there. I’m one month away from finishing my junior year of college, and I’ve racked up way more fashion experience than my freshman self imagined. Writing, social media, […]

Easter Pattern Play

Thanks for hopping over to the blog today! I have a fun take on the LWD (little white dress) that will keep you comfy for all your Easter Sunday activities. Instead of choosing classic pastels for the Spring holiday, I opted for some brights. After all, it’s about being hoppy-right? And nothing says “oh, happy […]

Teen Vogue Fashion U Recap: Day 2 | Hello One World Trade Center

I woke up at 6 a.m. to a dark, rainy Soho. The honking taxis, grunts of large trucks and the smell of bagels proved that you don’t have to see daylight to know that the city was already wide awake. But what I didn’t see coming was that today would be the best day of […]

Teen Vogue Fashion U Recap: Day 1 | Express Kickoff Party

I flew out to New York for Teen Vogue Fashion U on Wednesday morning with my suitcase half full. I’m not only coming back with three days worth of Express clothing, but also priceless connections and knowledge to kick start my fashion career in New York City. Five days, early mornings, late NYC nights. It […]
