What Are You Going To Wear With....


These are my Frankenstein inspired ankle boots.These shoes are comfortable,versatile and make me appear to be about 6 ft.2.In addition to the awesomeness that is these boots, they're from BooHoo which mean I got them with free shipping and only cost me about 19.00 dollars(I just did a shimmy while typing that).Besides how cute the shoes are and the price, they're outrageously comfortable.When these shoes arrived to my home I was ecstatic and still am, I've been creating a blue print of looks I'm going to wear them with(yes, it's that serious). I have a few looks compiled below that I plan on applying to my own closet very soon that I think these boots were MADE to be worn with.You'll probably notice a semi "girly" theme throughout the looks because in my head the perfect fashion formula goes like this
"tough boots+floral print and or lacey details= a complex combo that encompasses my spirit", lol.

I came up with a casual and more evening look that I think these boots go well with.The first look is all about fun blending polka dots and floral print, the toughness of the boots makes for a great contrast.The second monochromatic look is modern and feminine, so why not up the visual interest with my monster mash ankle boots!
What's your fashion formula for success? What key elements always make a great combination for you? What are key elements would you apply to a look to ensure style success such as plaid+pleather or pastel+polka dots let me know in the comment section!

The Classic Lbd With A Not So Classic Mind




I wore this simple lbd look to a play I went to recently. I love the simplicity of this dress, it really lays the canvas for playing with accessories. I wore a pair of the Vera Wang leggings my mom got me,(because it's still freezing in Michigan....).
I can't help but think that Michigan's weather has truly carved my style perspective.I have such an affection for outerwear and it's all because that's what gets worn the most in Michigan.I really want to move.I want a fresh start, new place, new wardrobe but what's stopping me?Oh yea...cash lol. Oh well, I'll have to make do with the new additions to my life currently, such as the internship position I've earned and a new job!
 I wanted to shout and yell to the rooftops about my recent internship opportunity but I didn't want to say anything on social media or here because that can seem unprofessional but I have the green light from my boss to do so, so here's the announcement. I am the digital marketing intern for Shop Lioness
I have some posts uploaded over on the Shop Lioness Blog, you should definitely check out here Shop LIONESS Blogs.I've been so excited to finally have some substantial credits to put on my resume`!
Everything's coming together, slowly but surely coming together and I'm grateful for this. What are some new changes you're looking to make in life, whether it's working situation, wardrobe situation, hair situation, I want to know!

Nobody Has Their Ish Together



It can be extremely easy to fall into envious behavior, especially in this age of social media where everyone can be very selective about the things they share(and inadvertently what they hide).Being envious of someone else's life is not only a waste of time but illogical.No one knows what goes on behind closed doors of those we consider successful.I have had so many times were I found myself admiring the life of my peers and shaming my own situations, and for what?Did it make me feel better to crap on my life to show admiration for someone else's?No.
The point is no one has it altogether.We like to think certain people have everything together as a source of inspiration for us to keep working but the bottom line is the act of "together" is a myth.Life isn't about being comfortable and having it together, it's about be confident in the fact that you can roll with the punches because even stinking rich people face issues.

Take a Tip From: Kelis's Interview With Coveteur

Via Coveteur
I want to introduce all of you to the latest style series I'm creating called Take a Tip.During the Take a Tip series we'll be taking a tip from a person's style, a specific article, or blogger and apply it to a look.Today we start the series with none other than musician and chef, Kelis.Kelis is known for her daring, diverse and brightly colored looks. It's obvious to see why they chose Kelis to interview on Coveteur, she's the queen of making profound statements in her closet and through her work ethic. We decided to take a specific tip from this editorial shot of her in this hot pink tulle skirt that is giving me life! I decided to try my own spin with a few tulle skirt oriented looks below:
Do it For the Tulle


After seeing this shot of her I've been more than obsessed with tulle skirts. I've been dying to get one myself. I want tulle skirts to become a norm in our society too, because it's so hard to find them in stores.Could you imagine if more people wore tulle skirts on the daily?I think the world would be a happier place, it's hard to be a pissed off in something that frilly and bouncy.

Day 31: The Wishlist, Dream List, Get Me Out of Here List

  Today is the last day of my style post challenge and we will commence with the regular post schedule, after today. I figured, why not end this challenge on one of my favorite kind of fashion blogger posts…WISHLISTS! This wish list is inspired my incredible desire to run off to a place where there’s Sun and you don’t have to worry about it snowing in the middle of April.

Wishlist!

My wishlist is quite simple.I want an endless array of wrap skirts,bralets and pastel toned earrings.I could imagine wearing the bralet with the wrap skirt and a blazer for a little cover up out to dinner or brunch...in a place where there's palm trees le sigh.I want to move.
