Breathe

sustainable-outfit-las-vegas

I am trying to embrace a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle, especially when it comes to my fashion consumption. In America, we are bred to be consumers as early as childhood. I have spent so many years of my life blindly purchasing items without ever giving them any consideration. When I was in high-school I would spend countless hours online shopping on Forever 21’s website. I slowly stopped shopping at fast fashion stores like Forever 21, due to me becoming a…

What’s In My Travel Bag? – Feat. Hamilton Perkins Earth Bag

hamilton-perkins-earth-bag

I am traveling to LA soon, so I figured I would share what I keep in my Hamilton Perkins Earth Bag. This bag is the perfect size for a short weekend trip. The coolest thing about this bag is the outside is made out of recycled plastic and the inside is made out of recycled billboard vinyl. Of course I’ll be visiting the beach, so a packed a thrifted beach towel and a thrifted swim suit. Since I will only…

White Romper

Rompers are the perfect item for summer. I was super escatic when my boss gifted me with this romper that she no longer wore. Free clothes literally make my heart melt! I love everything about this romper, the lace details, the flowy sleeves, and the deep vneck. I paired this romper with gold and turquoise accessories, to capture the summer vibes. This post is in collaboration with my curly friend Marie. We wanted to show you contrasting looks with rompers.…

Clothing Swap

las-vegas-clothing-swap

Last Saturday, I attended a summer clothing swap hosted by The Sister House Collective (a super cute store containing a highly ethically curated collection of handcrafted items), Salex (an online boutique specializing in high quality recycled fashion), and Minimal Market ( a pop-up company selling waste-free handcrafted goods). The three companies collabed to create one of the most exciting sustainable events I’ve seen in Vegas. I am still aweing over how cute the set up was. Everything was nicely organized…

Grouplove

grouplove-band-tee

I am notorious for wearing band tees of bands I don’t actually listen to. I know people hate it, but I mean, band tees are the cutest. This tee might be the first in my collection of a band I actually listen to. I purchased it back in 2012 at the Grouplove concert, which was amazing. I remember they had the most random stage design, it was set up like someone’s apartment. I also may or may not have lost…

Boston Thrift Haul

Today I’m sharing the items I thrifted during my trip to Boston. If you haven’t seen my vlog of the trip, you can watch it here.  I found the cutest thrift store in Cambridge called the Garment District, thanks to the recommendation of some fellow thrifters! It was literally in awe when I walked in. This thrift store alone convinced me that I need to come back to Boston one day.        Which item was your favorite?…

One Shoulder Ruffles

thrifted-ruffle-top

I am a lover of anything girly and I mean what’s girlier than ruffles?! I was so thrilled when my mom found this ruffle number for me at the thrift store. With ruffles and off-shoulder styles currently trending, this dress literally is the epitome of spring 2017. This piece is actually a looooong maxi dress, however I chose to style it as a top, because I needed to be a little more mobile this day.  I promise you, you’ll see…

New Firmoo Glasses

When I first realized that my eyesight was going bad, back in 2008, I refused to wear glasses. I actually had contacts for a year before owning my first pair of glasses. I literally did everything in my power to avoid wearing glasses until absolutely necessary. I even chose to get contacts that I could wear for a month straight. Now, I finally am starting to really like glasses. I was super excited when the company Firmoo reached out to…
