Can you believe how fast this summer has gone by? I move out of the house in exactly two weeks and I can’t even grasp it.
If you know me at all, you know I am all about simplicity. Looking clean and polished is my thing and there’s nothing I love more than a great, simple swimsuit that makes you feel comfortable and confident. We all have insecurities, so in my opinion it’s best to throw on a bikini with a great silhouette. I always tend to gravitate towards black in everything I wear because it’s like my safety net. Black is slimming, sleek, and you always look put together in it. Wearing a black bikini makes me feel great because it doesn’t draw too much attention and I personally love the contrast with my blonde hair. There are a few things you can do to play up a plain bikini; I personally love Y-chain necklaces or body chains. Please DO NOT wear jewelry in any kind of water, it’ll tarnish!
To layer over your swimsuit, I also suggest something basic. I threw on this really light fabric romper. It’s the best swimsuit cover up! Another thing – I strongly urge you to not spend a lot of money on swimsuit cover ups. They get beaten up! I’ll take mine on the boat, lay in the sand, or even get wet in them. If you’re going to splurge, do it on the swimsuit! Not on the thing you’ll be covering it with!

Greetings everyone! I would just like to apologize for my absence. I had my college orientation, which was amazing! I am so excited to start this new chapter and I couldn’t be happier with the school I picked. After orientation, I was at a week long summer camp for people affected with bleeding disorders. My family is affected with Hemophilia, which I will get into in another post. Following camp, I had my wisdom teeth removed and with that came many complications that lead to a longer recovery. Anyways, I am so happy to be back and start posting again!
For my first post back, I wanted to share my favorite, go-to summer outfit. I am all about comfort. I love to throw on a soft shirt and some denim shorts for any daytime occasion. I am OBSESSED with this linen shirt because even though it’s blue and white, it can pretty much go with anything. Here I’ve paired it with my favorite boyfriend denim shorts. It’s so hard for me to find a good pair of denim shorts because of my build. Being 4’11” has always made it hard to shop. As for shoes, I basically live in my Rainbows. They are the best sandals I have ever had and I throw them on with anything. If you haven’t ever had them, at least try them on because they will change your life! I have been super in to mixing metals and layering necklaces. I love these two pieces. One is a longer Y-chain that I keep tucked in my shirt so it look like a body chain. Then I am also wearing a shorter Y-chain that has silver and gold detailing. Along with the mixing metals theme, I stacked two gold rings with one silver ring in between and stacked silver and gold bracelets. Can you tell it’s one of my favorite trends?!
Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to get everything out there as I have been MIA for awhile!

Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there. I would personally like to thank my own dad for always encouraging me. He’s been by my side through all of the ups and downs. He also helped me create this website because he’s all tech-savvy. So thank you Dad!
Alright, so for the outfit – I wanted to go with something casual and fun. If you know me, you know I love a good statement pant. I LOVE these black and white sunflower jogger-like pants from Gap. They are paper thin so the heat doesn’t get to you, especially when we’ve recently had a record of high heat in the past couple days where I live. However, these pants don’t have a ton of shape so I wanted a very structured top. I went with this papery, white peplum top, also by Gap. (I work for Gap, that’s why basically all of my clothes are from there.) I accessorized with some basic diamond studs, a statement necklace, my everyday watch, all black sunglasses, and some black sandals. This outfit was so light and perfect for dinner by the pool with the family.
I hope you all enjoyed this post and I hope you all had a wonderful Father’s Day and spent it with the ones you love!

Welcome to my new website. I am so excited to shared my life with you all! For my first post, I would like to share my Outfit of the Day! I am completely obsessed with this light pink/ blush color. It is so flattering on EVERYONE and I guarantee that if you try it, you’ll fall in love. It gives a feminine glow to whoever wears it. Another reason I love this color is because it’s so versatile. You can pair it with white like I have done in the pictures below, with denim, with another nude, or even black. This is one of my all time favorite tops that I own because I have been able to create so many different outfits, I’ve never had to repeat!
I hope you all enjoyed my first post and please leave comments on anything you would like to see me do in the future. I can’t wait to share everything with you!
