Welcome to Paradise






Romper | Tote | Sandals

If you’re in college or maybe you’re in high school either way fall break and winter break are right around the corner! And for some of us that means it’s time to travel to somewhere warmer which is why I had to of course share this adorable romper  from Fascino with y’all before you head out on your travels. It’s perfect for a cruise, trip to Florida, or maybe somewhere else more exotic! Not to mention because it’s a romper so it’s easy to throw on and look put together and it’s beyond comfy! I paired it with my favorite Jcrew sandals which I got on sale for $15, (crazy right?) along with this HUGE tote from KaileysMonogramShop! It’s perfect for packing up all of your things and heading on vacation which is exactly what I used it for this past weekend and I’ll be using again this weekend! It’s big enough to throw in everything you need!

Romper | Booties | Necklace

There is nothing I love more than a comfortable and stylish romper. Which is why I just can’t get enough of this romper from Beth-A-Belle. Their store never ceases to amaze me and every item is great quality. My favorite part about this romper is the fact that it can go from day to night with just a quick change in accessories!

Speaking of accessories, I decided to pair it with a long drop necklace which adds a bit of edginess to the look. It’s enough to spice it up without being too much with the print of the romper. Lastly I added in my trusty brown ankle booties which I adore. They are comfortable, cute, and just dress up any outfit!

Whether you’re having a night out on the town with the girls or you’re just feeling fancier that day, this romper and outfit is a look I know everyone will love. Something about it just makes me feel confident and excited to show it off to everyone, maybe it’s the playful cut of the romper or maybe its the edginess of the necklace either way you’ll be sure to see me in this romper all the time now!

Embroidered Dress










Dress | Crossbody Bag | Necklace| Booties (sold out, similar here) |

On hot days like today my favorite piece to reach for is this adorable white dress from Beth-A-Belle, it’s so flowy and light that even in 90 degree weather I feel cool and cute! I typically wear a nude lace bandeau because the back is slightly lower as well as the sides! And let’s not forget the adorable bright colored embroidery, it’s the perfect pop of color.

I couldn’t help but pair it with my favorite cross body bag from BoHo-Tique. It has two separate pockets for storing everything and it’s so sleek and neutral it seriously goes with every outfit you can imagine.

Adding the final touches to the outfit I chose this simple hammered bar necklace from Rose Water Designs, her jewelry is gorgeous and she offers several cute pieces that are simple and so elegant! Which is why I chose it for this feminine outfit.

Lastly I chose a pair of brown booties to spice up the outfit, usually if I am trecking across campus I’d go for a more comfortable option, but these are awesome and super comfy ones from Charlotte Russe. They just add a more dressy feel to the whole look!

Go Ahead Red

IMG_1593Confidence, many women seek it yet few seem to have it. Confidence begins with little steps such as standing up for yourself, hanging out with who you want to, and trying out new fashion and beauty trend. Today I took a big step in my own life and decided to rock a beauty look I’ve always adored, red lips.



Red lips, or bright lips in general, used to scare me. I was to afraid to wear them in public for fear of people judging me or making fun of me. Today I decided to give it a whirl, because I shouldn’t care what those around me think. If I like it then why not rock it?



Although wearing red lipstick is such a little thing, it still takes loads of confidence to do, so I threw on my favorite dress from Target, no less, along with some comfy sandals and my everyday tote from Madewell.



Partaking in photo shoots for my blog have even increased my confidence in myself and my blog. Even when people are staring at me like I’m crazy when I pose for a few pictures, none of it seems to bother me anymore. I’ve decided that I am proud of the work I am putting in for my blog and I don’t care what others think of me. Because it’s for all of you who visit my blog each day and read my posts!



So today, I encourage you to take part in my red lip challenge. By no means do you have to wear red lipstick, but instead I ask that you take a step towards becoming more confident in yourself. Whether it’s walking with your shoulders back and head up or trying a new fashion trend. Go ahead, take a chance and I promise you won’t regret it.

Go confidently.
