First Fashion Haul

Hello hello! I’m super excited to share my first ever clothing haul with you all! (see what I did there : P) I love fashion and reading fashion blogs. I think it’s so fun and inspiring to see other people’s tastes in fashion, where they got certain clothing, etc. Today I am going to share three of my favorite outfits–let’s go!


This first outfit is super warm and comfy, and it’s perfect for the fall/winter.


Sweater ~ Kohls ~ Similar


This sweater is cozy and soft. The color reminds me of the smell of cinnamon and is the perfect color for the cold weather. I especially love that the sleeves are puffed as well which really adds an extra touch.


I paired the sweater with these jeans. The detail on the bottom is really cool. When I bought these jeans they were plain, but then I ripped and sewed the patches underneath myself. It took about 10+ hours, but I’m really happy with the way they turned out.

Heart Pendant ~ Amazon ~ Similar    Bracelet ~ Amazon ~ Similar

This is the jewelry that I chose for this outfit. My sister gave me the pink heart pendant and the Miraculous Medal bracelet was a gift as well. They go perfectly with the outfit because of the purple accents.


Boots ~ Walmart ~ Similar

Shoes are hands down my favorite part of picking out outfits! These boots are great for the outfit because of the deep brown color and tan accents.



This next outfit is great especially as a day-to-night look. You can wear it all day and still be ready for a fun evening especially when you want to dress on the casual-nice side.


Long Sleeve ~ Target

The lace in the front really adds a nice vintage touch to the long sleeve. I’m also really happy that the long sleeve is thin because then I can wear it even when the weather is on the warmer side.


Glasses ~ Amazon ~ Similar

Even though I don’t technically need glasses, I enjoy wearing “fake” glasses because I think they are really cute and work as a nice accessory.

Leg Warmer ~ Amazon ~ Similar
I have to say that I was a little bit nervous to try out leg warmers. However, I discovered that they are a great staple clothing item for the cold weather! Not only do they keep your legs warm, if you also have trouble tucking your jeans into boots, they help hide the puffiness.
Doc Martens ~ Amazon 
I got doc marten boots last year for Christmas, and they are seriously one of my favorite boots ever! They are so comfortable, I could wear them all day. I love how they look great with jeans and skirts/dresses.
This last and final outfit I am going to show you is dressy and fun. I actually wore it for a photoshoot I did and it looked great in the pictures.
Dress ~ Amazon ~ Similar
This dress is so gorgeous! Baby doll dresses are one of my favorite dress styles and it really makes my day when a dress has pockets (it’s the little things ;)). I also added the white trim on the dress myself which adds a unique touch. 
Choker ~ Amazon ~ Similar
Necklace ~ Amazon ~ Similar
These necklaces are an amazing addition to the outfit. The chocker adds a nice elegant touch while the necklace gives it a little bling. 
Bracelets ~ Forever 21 ~ Similar
Earrings ~ Amazon ~ Similar
This bracelet set and earrings are so pretty and work perfectly as accents for the outfit.
Shoes ~ Amazon
These shoes are my most favorite part of the whole outfit! I love rose gold, so when I found these shoes on sale at a local store I new I had to get them. The ankle strap and heel, as well as the metallic color, really make the whole outfit pop.

and that brings us to the end of my first fashion haul! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I had fun making it. Hang in there, the weekend is in sight!


Chasing the Sunset

Hello hello! I am super super excited for today’s post–it’s dedicated completely to sunsets! I have always loved the whole idea of chasing your sunset. It’s always reminded me of working so hard to accomplish something, and then at the end you are rewarded with something beautiful. It might not always be what you expected or wanted, but upon reflection, you see how beautiful it really is. When you look at the sunset, you might be amazed by the bold reds and pinks, or even the softness of the blues and yellows. Sunset time is my favorite time of day. I really hope you enjoy these pictures I took, I had a lovely time capturing this beauty.
