Black Skirt & Red Lips


When I'm wearing pretty much head to toe Free People it's safe to assume that the outfit was work attire for me. Yes, even an outfit like this one. I love working for a company where the style of dress fits my personal style so well. It's such a relief to wake up in the morning and be able to put together outfits that I can feel like myself in. I don't just own a lot of Free People because I work there but also because I genuinely love the clothes.

Retro



I really surprised myself when I decided I had to have this Missguided playsuit. I'm not sure if I'd normally consider it my style but I was strangely drawn to it. I love that it's unlike anything I own and unlike anything I've seen in stores near me lately. Pairing this playsuit with a hat and bow-tie made me feel like I was ready to break out into a tap dance at any moment which was actually a really fun and freeing feeling. Its always nice to try out a new style every once and a while!

She Who Is Brave Is Free


"She who is brave is free"

The word "free" can mean a million different things depending on who you ask. To me, I am free when no opinions matter but my own. I am free when I can walk down the street and leave that insecure girl I used to be behind. I am free when I'm not afraid to smile at a stranger or dance to the tune of my favorite song. I am free when my hair is a mess and all my makeup is gone. All these moments of freedom take bravery and courage to stop caring and start living.

Anastasia


I've been waiting for the perfect day to wear this beautiful For Love & Lemons robe. Such a beautiful piece deserves a warm sunny day and a good debut.  Since this robe is actually just lingerie I wanted to pair it with a causal look. It would look beautiful over a simple little black dress but I wanted to prove I could dress it down too. It was really fun to throw the robe on over such a simple foundation and it added that extra something special to the look. You know how much I love that!

Desert Dreaming



This looks a lot like a festival look doesn't it? Well alas I am not at Coachella like the rest of my Instagram feed or favorite bloggers. Instead I'm enjoying the beautiful sunny and warm days we've been having here in portland. Finally being able to take out these Umgee shorts was a really good feeling. Theres really nothing like feeling of sun on bare skin.

*I was gifted with the shorts but all opinions are my own
