[11] OOTD

Today I felt like being a bit dressed up, I wanted my look to be a bit flirty, fun, but also appropriate for work/school. This look is great during the summer times because of the flared light skirt and barely there cap sleeves. You can pair the dress with a sheer tight with the line running up the back, style it for fall with a burgundy (or color of your choice) tight, or even with your bare beautiful legs. These exposed laced ankle boots are a nice luxurious suede and are absolutely stunning to wear. They have been sitting in my closet for a bit now and I saw them and just knew I had to wear them again. Paired with some fun simple gold jewelry makes this look effortless and chic while not killing your budget and quick to pull together.

Continuing with my summer theme of outfits of the day I wanted to play with a nontraditional way of wearing denim, thus inspiring todays look incorporating a chambray dress. This dress itself is very light and easy to throw on, I paired it with an equally light cardigan. This look is great for relaxing at home, going to class or maybe even a farmers market! I wanted something simple easy and fun while still being stylish and chic.

[9] OOTD

It's beginning to feel like summer here and with summer comes hot days, sunbathing, trips to the beach and light and breathable clothing. In honor of the changing of the seasons I decided to dress for the occasion and break out my light and airy comfortable clothes.

Rocksbox Unboxing/Review

So today I had received my first ever Rocksbox in the mail. What is Rocksbox you may ask? well it's a monthly subscription service dedicated specifically to jewelry. You first take a quick simple survey so their stylists can get an idea of what exactly your taste is and then send you a 3-piece box of jewelry averaging around $200 to wear on loan. You of course are able to purchase any of the jewelry from the box and anything you don't plan on keeping simply pack back up and ship back to them. The entire box is yours to keep and wear for as long as you want (with the monthly subscription fee of course) or you can just send them all right back and a new group will be on its way to you shortly.  Below you will see my unboxing experience via pictures and a review shortly after with my first experience!

So as for my first Rocksbox I am pleasantly surprised. I, however, wish that I would have waited till after I had gotten this first box before making my wishlist on their site. 

All my pieces here are from the wishlist I had created and therefore inhibit my ability to truly review their stylists abilities to judge based on my interests. Otherwise, I really like these minimalistic and geometric jewelry pieces. I've always had an affinity for the look and am pleased they picked them to send. The necklace is a bit short for my neck and helps me judge just what exactly the lengths are of them since the site is lacking that information. 

The site itself has a great variety of pieces from statement jewelry to even simpler pieces. You are also able to choose the type of metal you prefer if you're not so open minded to different kinds. 

I'd like it to be known that this is not a sponsored post (though I wish it was). So unfortunately I cannot offer you a discount code. The services are $19 a month but for the $10 you get to spend on jewelry each month and an unlimited amount of swapping within each month I find it to be a pretty good deal, especially if you're strapped for time like I am.

Today I felt like dressing up a little classy today and decided to go with a cute and chic black and white look. This look is also in honor of my fellow college girls who have just graduated and are on their way to many interviews. With a few minor adjustments and some accessorizing you can very this look for a date, night out with the girls, interviews or just going to work.

[7] OOTD -- Memorial Day

Welcome to Memorial Day. For those of you who aren't familiar with this holiday, today is the day we give remembrance to all those who have given the ultimate sacrifice (and those who serve) in the name of freedom.  Today we take a moment to say thank you and pray for your families who are grieving your loss. 

A lot of us today take this time to have get togethers with loved ones, barbecue or take a weekend holiday. So in honor of today and along this general guideline on this perfect summers day here in California I give you my memorial day outfit.

Painted Body

Today marks the last day of my Spring semester so I thought I'd introduce you all to a quick peak at my accessories final. 

This is a Fall/Winter 2017 small collection which was inspired by a video called Make Your Maker by Lucy McRae. It's a 10 piece collection made of leather with a watercolor painted effect. They bags are all created structurally but with the use of foam to give it a softness and lightness. I really wanted to create a collection based in my contemporary field and I feel I have achieved this. I used neutral colors with a pop of teal and silver hardware for the 20s-30s age range market.
