PSA: If you didn’t understand the reference in the title… i’m disappointed in you.
Oh hey there! Happy Tuesday peeps! Coming at ya live, with a new fashion post featuring only affordable clothing! Side note- I have found that most of the time, the exact pieces I am wearing are no longer available.. so in that case I do some research to find similar styles! Not to mention, most of the time they are on sale for KILLER deals, which pains me considering I most likely paid full price.
Before I move on I want to quickly make an announcement about my new blogging schedule. In the past, I would only post when I had time, which lead to inconsistency and lack of posts. NO MORE OF THAT NONSENSE AM I RIGHT. So, as of now every Tuesday I will have a new blog post out! The topics will vary from fashion, beauty, health, fitness, you name it. I am really looking forward to all of these fun posts to come, and I hope you are too! Also, suggestions would be more than appreciated!
On to the post!
When planning this shoot, my friend Nicole and I wanted vibrant and fun scenery. We wanted neon signs, fun backdrops, the whole nine, and we got just that! All of these photos were taken in Wildwood New Jersey, which if you have ever been there, i’m sure this will make a lot of sense.
I remember running to the mall the day before this shoot thinking, I want something trendy yet affordable to make for some really cool photos. More times than not, you really do not have to break the bank at Urban to get the trendy look you’re going for. I’m living proof!
Months ago while scrolling aimlessly through Instagram, I saw a blogger wearing a large puffy star jacket, just like this one. From that moment on.. I WAS A GIRL ON A MISSION.
I did some research and continued to find diddly squat. Bummer right? Wrong.
I will never forget the moment I spotted this beautiful lady hanging ever so perfectly on a rack in the middle of Bloomingdales. My vision had come to life, and I was ELATED.
With a jacket like this one, you can really do anything. I know, that sounds crazy… I mean, look at it. However, a statement piece is a girls best friend because it completes the look for you, requiring minimum effort. How nice is that!?
Do you ever come across a piece of clothing that you know is SO questionable, but you also kinda need it? That was this shirt. A while back I stumbled upon this Sacajawea inspired silk top and grabbed it for about 8 dollars at a thrift store on South Street here in Philadelphia. While it sat in my closet collecting dust for quite some time, I knew that one day I was going to wear it and love it. So- that is what I did!
Fun fact- If you look closely enough, you’ll see several tears streaming down my face considering it was about 20 degrees this day #neverforget.
Ah, New York, New York. Although you leave me exhausted, helpless, and a little dirty, I can’t help but to love ya. Just a few weekends ago, I visited New York with a full agenda. This included a visit to by CHLOE, an Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper live show (which was incredible), a visit to Cha Cha Matcha, and much more. Of course, I brought my camera along for the journey!
I have to admit, Cha Cha Matcha has been ALL over my Instagram feed and it was on the top of my priority list during this trip to New York. Funny enough- I hate green tea. Moment of silence for the money I willingly wasted at this establishment simply because it looked beautiful. If you say you have never purchased something simply for the Instagram, YOU. ARE. LYING. TO. YOURSELF.
Now that the weather is breaking a bit, I need to get my butt back to New York. What should I put on my to do list?
That’s all I got for today! I really cannot express how excited I am to get back to blogging. Unfortunately, the last couple months of school have completely drained every ounce of inspiration I had in me, BUT.. its a new semester and there are only good things ahead.
So many posts to come, I can hardly wait 🙂 Have an amazing day!
