If you follow me on instagram, you might remember this outfit. I was inspired to come up with an outfit that included blue and coral together. This is what I came up with :) 
Im loving this caged detail on my top, and my new necklace is my new go-to necklace, its gold and goes with literally every outfit! Prepare to see this necklace a lot!

So happy I decided to keep these floral jeans! They are sold out online but I'm sure they are still available in store. I tried them on without styling them and I was immediately discouraged to keep them, but I thought about how I could possibly style them and I'm so happy I was able to come up with something super cute!

passion is energy. feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.

Guess purse
ASOS white pyramid bracelet
Forever21 gold link bracelet (similar here)
Forever21 black wrap around bracelet
 ASOS black cross bracelet
ASOS plug bangle

I bought this maxi dress a while back and I never wore it out because the bottom was tight and hard to walk in, so I just taught last minute before walking out of the house to cut the front and make it shorter. It's stylish and much more wearable now!

It was a gold accessory kinda day.  
What do you guys think about leopard print? I didn't like it growing up, but its growing on me. I'm branching out and trying new prints and trends. This is a great way to discover what I truly like and dislike.

 Loving the pop of lime green! I recently bought this belt and have a few outfit ideas in mind already. I think this outfit looks great without the belt as well, but I love bright colors too much to leave the belt behind.

we are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that death will tremble to take us.

Forever21 floral top
American Eagle shorts
Metropark cross-body purse
Express gold hoop earrings

Today was probably one of the hottest days of the year. I originally started my day wearing a pair of blue colored denim which were skinny, but I quickly changed as the weather kept getting hotter and hotter.

I attended my brother's graduation today and heard a quote from a speech given at the ceremony. It caught my attention and made me really think about it. If you haven't already noticed I use quotes as my titles. Its a great way to motivate myself to become a better person.

This quote has really shifted my perception about death. I always thought as humans we were not in control, but in some way, this quote says otherwise. It's something interesting to think about.

the past has no power over the present moment.

Vintage high-waisted shorts
Sam Edelman sandals

I am completely in love with my new vintage shorts, there are one size too big but I really can't complain! I feel so lucky to have found a pair finally! And I'm not sure if I can alter them either.

No jewelry today! I spent the whole day outside in the sun and wanted to be causal yet stylish.

Today I went thrift store shopping for the very first time! I wanted to go with my cousin because she thrifts often and she spotted these vintage light denim shorts by Lee. I can't begin to tell you how badly I've been wanting a pair of vintage high-waisted shorts for years now! It wasn't love at first sight but when I took them home I cut them a few inches shorter and rolled up the ends. I'm beyond excited with the way they turned out and can't wait to wear them tomorrow!

you only live once. but if you do it right, once is enough.

Express romper (cheaper version here)
Forever21 necklace
 ASOS white pyramid bracelet
Louis Vuitton purse
Gucci sunglasses
OPI Mod About You nail polish

I love the jewel tone color of the necklace against the black romper, also the gold, rose gold and silver accessories. It livens up any monotone outfit.

This is the perfect kick-back outfit with an added touch of glam.

This was the first romper I purchased, I remember wanting a basic one but my style is slowing changing. I still love a nice basic piece but I'm slowly drifting away from cotton and leaning towards more interesting fabrics that have more depth and character. What do you guys think?

if my life is going to mean anything. I have to live it myself.

I love the idea of print blocking! I wanted to try something new so I opted for the floral and poka-dot combo. I also decided to add a belt to "block up" the prints. 

I'm wearing my favorite nail polish, its the perfect pale pink-purple shade!

By the way, my clutch is so big I was able to fit my macbook in it!
