The One with the Pink Scarf


 (Shirt: D.I., Skirt: JcPenney, Tights: WalMart, Cardigan: Vanity, Scarf: gift)

I mostly made this outfit so I could wear this pink scarf.
I've been searching for something to wear it with for FOREVER. 
I got the shirt I'm wearing from DI like two years ago and it's been a lifesaver on many occasions.
Also, I just ordered an eShakti dress so be on the look-out for it. 
It's amazing and I can't wait to get my hands on it.

How I Create An Outfit

I often get asked how I know which colors go together to make an outfit. 
Let's get real, I don't. 
Although I do have a process
(Ugh. I'm sounding like a marketing student...)


So here's my little secret: 
I start by picking a key piece in my outfit. I usually pick a dress, but anything with a multi-colored pattern works.
Next, I look at the colors in the pattern. 
In this dress specifically, there are about 7 different colors. It doesn't matter how much they stand out or not, if any color is there it counts! 
Then I pick about four different accessories to pair with it. For this outfit, I chose a purple blazer, navy tights, a gold necklace, and gray shoes. 

I think the most important thing at this point in my process is how I want to feel: Do I want to be comfortable? Do I want to wear leggings? Do I want to wear tights? Do I need to be professional?

It's all about the kind of style you want to achieve. This is where you make it personal and combine colors and styles you like. There are tons of outfits that I love, but I know don't look good on me. That's alright!
I don't need to be doing what everybody else is doing to look like I know what I'm doing.

Happy Outfiting!
And if you need help, I got chooo.

that time I tried the blogger pose and looked like a dead fish

Let's just talk about these photos.
As I walked outside by my apartment complex to have my roommate take these photos of me, a bunch of boys were standing on the top floor balcony and asked what we were doing.
I immediately said "Don't judge me! It's for my blog!"
Then they proceeded to photobomb us. Typical boys.

Once we didn't get photobombed, Amy started taking photos of me and I told her she should take a photo of me doing the blogger pose....that ended badly. (hint: go to last photo)

(Shirt: Dillards, Vest: Dress Barn, Pants: Old Navy, Shoes: Payless, Scarf: gift)



She said: "You look like a dead fish."
Yup. I'm cool.
