Usual Suspects

Hello, babes! Sorry for my short hiatus. I got wrapped up in the holiday whirlwind. Did everyone have a nice Christmas? I spent a lot of time with the fam and ate my weight in food.. the signs of a good holiday, right? I am ready to hibernate for the winter, but I guess I will stick it out until New Year’s haha.

Now that winter is back, I am all about the turtlenecks again. I recently got 3 of these tops in different shades. They are fairly light and fit perfectly and are great for layering! I paired this plain white one with my favorite Stussy bomber jacket and flared denim.

Sup?

Happy eve of Christmas eve! Have you all finished your holiday preparations? Shopping last minute during Christmas gives me anxiety so I made sure to get all my errands done early!

I have been loving flared pants lately and these are no exception. I find that flared pants give the illusion of looking taller than you really are so I have been playing with different silhouettes. I love these particular pants because of their scalloped edge. It lets me show off my gorgeous new boots that I cannot seem to take off! I also paired it with my favorite Supreme t-shirt and thrifted jacket.

What to Wear this NYE

Happy Monday, lovelies! Holiday season is in full swing and although we have Christmas to still get through, I thought I would get your mind thinking about New Year’s Eve because that will be here before you know it too.

I created three different looks depending on your own sense of style. I thought these outfits would be perfect to wear to a nice end-of-the-year dinner celebration, party, or even a casual night in but you still want to dress up for the occasion. Personally, I am lusting after every piece I posted here.  But to be honest, I have no idea what my NYE plans are yet. I never really do anything, but I want to try and go out this year! What are your plans? Which outfit is your favorite?

Lace Up

Hey, babes! Happy Friday! I found these gorgeous lace up pants at Goodwill the other day. They were actually missing the tie, but when I got home I just used a piece of ribbon to lace them up and I think they look pretty good for a quick fix. I don’t think it’s a long-term solution, but it will work for the time being! These pants are a gem and can easily be dressed up or down. I am thinking of wearing them for Christmas with my silk blouse? We’ll have to see. But here I just styled it with this black cropped top for a more laid-back vibe.

Also, I took to instagram and asked my followers if I should change up my hair?! It’s getting quite long since the last time I cut it, but I am thinking about the possibility of switching it up in some way. Maybe playing with the idea of going a bit lighter. I am just a bit nervous since I really never dyed my hair before. What do you think?

Nighttime Skincare Routine

Happy hump day, babes! I have not done a beauty post in quite sometime, so I thought I would share my nighttime skincare routine. My skin is honestly in the best shape it has ever been in because I have been very diligent in taking care of it. FYI I have a dry skin type. Currently, I am using this O Hui Miracle Moisture sample kit. Skincare can be quite expensive, so before investing in full-sized bottles, I think these deluxe sample kits are a great way to make sure your skin does not react to any of the products and that it actually is effective. This is my first experience with O Hui (have been using for the past 2 months or so), but I love all of these products. I truly believe Korean skincare is some of the best on the market. Here’s a breakdown of all the steps. I am not sure if I am layering the O Hui product in the most effective way, but I found that it works well nonetheless.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water & DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
(I forgot to mention that between steps 1 & 2, I cleanse my face with the Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser)

Every other night between steps 1 and 2, I try to do a face mask. This routine has one wonders for my skin. It has never been softer or smoother before. Our skin is something we should take the time and money to invest in. Your future self with thank you! Have you guys ever tried Korean skincare? What are some of your favorite products?

#Windowtotheworld ft. WearMe Pro

Happy Monday, babes! I am very excited for today’s post because I had the opportunity to work with WearMe Pro, a fashion sunglasses subscription box. Basically, you sign up and take a personal style quiz so the stylists can get a feel for your sense of fashion and preferred shape. There’s 3 pairs in each box, totaling to 12 pairs for the year. It costs $29.99 per seasonal delivery (use code SAVE50 to get 50% your first box). This allows you to have the hottest sunglasses for every season.

I wore this black and white outfit and modeled all 3 pairs from WearMe Pro so you can see how just a simple pair of sunglasses can transform an outfit and give it a new look & vibe. The Anna pair is a bit more classic and simple, but the Brook and Bailey gave my whole look a much edgier feel, which I absolutely adore. The fun thing about a sunglasses subscription box is receiving pairs you would not normally pick out. I honestly never thought I would wear a pair of green sunglasses, but now I want to wear them with everything! Which pair is your favorite?

Fuct It

Happy Friday, babes! So ready for the weekend. I have completed all of my classes and only 2 final exams separate me from fully enjoying my winter break. It is so weird to think I only have one semester of college left. To be completely honest, I am quite nervous since I do not have an official job lined up yet post-graduation. I plan on applying to a multitude of jobs this winter break. If you guys have any connections..hook a sista up hahaha.

This outfit is reflective of my mood as I finish out my last fall term. I am wearing this Fuct t-shirt that I tied in the center to make it more flattering on since it is a men’s shirt. I paired it with this silk cardigan, but to be completely honest it is actually a robe I decided to wear as an outwear piece. Lastly, I just wore a comfortable pair of high-waisted denim and my sock booties.
