“I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”
-Coco Chanel

It's finally here- summer is coming to an end. I'm hurrying to buy the last minute things I need while also packing up my room at home for my apartment and trying to fit a hair appointment in all at once. I'm also mentally preparing myself for this upcoming fall semester away from some of the people I love most in the world. I recently said goodbye two of my best friends last week and I'll say goodbye to two more at the end of this week.

CHICSHA: The Mag Issue III

Posted on: Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Back in May I received an e-mail from a lovely lady named Shona who invited me to write a piece amongst other fashion bloggers about my take on a specific spring/summer trend for CHICSHA the Magazine. My trend was lace (fringe & frills) and I personally changed my outfits with accessory tweaks rather than finding every lace piece in my closet to exemplify the trend. I believe that you should fill your closet with a few great pieces and learn how to put them to work rather than just fueling trends! Because let's be honest here, how long do you think that trend will last? Or work for your body? Or last throughout seasons?! Did I get you there? I think the third issue of this online magazine is incredible and I  am excited to see what other fabulous things CHICSHA will do! Below I shared some photos that were not featured, taken by my wonderful friend Katherine CampbellRead the issue here!

As long as I can remember jeans have been a second skin to me. Even in the sweltering hot Kansas City summers I can't help but want to wear jeans, like all the time. Denim just feels so great to me, but sometimes I feel that skinny jeans are too casual and confining. I've been looking into other pants to try and I came across these Brandy Melville Susannah Harlem Pants. Though I really wish I was taller they are immensely comfortable and give me a loose look and vibe that I yearned for. I am excited to see how I can transition them into the fall ^_^ My favourite Katherine ever, took these spectacular shots of me in a tree. I wish you guys could've been with us! I fought off ants and Spiderman scary spiders! The ones where I have only one shoe on are probably due to me invading a poor ant populations home. In other news, summer is going by way too quickly! I'm not emotionally ready for July to be over! I have been buying too much black furniture from IKEA for my apartment, and Candidly Nicole on VH1 has become my new favourite show (after Suits of course.)

{I made a GIF!}

Summer has been killin' it for me! I've been loving these past few rainy days among the notably hot days. Life has been been super busy with: friends, my internship at Deux Hommes (check out my last post here), making hella' drinks at Starbucks, and struggling through microeconomics. I guess I'm not complaining minus the last part, micro is the worst!

Last week my fabulous friend Katie Campbell (who has also been killing it at CollegeFashionista) took some pictures of me wearing my favourite new dress. When I got home from college I was so stressed out upon not having ample space in my closet. So I decided to give in and sell a few pieces of mine on Vinted. Thus far it has been pretty successful! You have the option to swap or sell and I've been swapping a whole lot! Oops! Do you want to know what I swapped for this Anna Sui dress? A gold clutch I used once for prom last year! Pretty sweet deal, huh?

Well I am wearing an Anna Sui dress, my beloved silver birkenstocks, and Sephora's "Escape to Rio" lipstick in Neon Rouge Bikini (I'm obsessed). Hope summer is treating all of you! What are you spending your summer doing? I found out pretty recently I'll be going back home to NYC for a week and spending some time in the Poconos!

If you saw my last post you may have noticed that I was asked to be featured in a blogger spread by CHICSA Magazine recently! So I decided to give my take on fringes & frills for the summer/fall trend. Have you heard? Fringe is the new peplum! Similar to my last post, I am not going to share the entire post for you since it'll be in the issue but I wanted to give y'all another preview. (;

I have been dying to wear this intimately embroidered button front slip from Free People since I bought it months ago. It is singlehandedly one of the loveliest things in my closet. I just wish I knew how to wear it more. Luckily, I've styled this look a few different ways for my CHICSA article.

Personally, I like making this slip more Fleetwood Mac-esque and wearing it in the day time. I think another perfect way to wear this would be with a white maxi or with shorts and a nice tank. In all honesty I think we tend to overcomplicate pieces like these, so do what feels natural to you. Whether it be rocking it late at night, out shopping, or sleeping in it! Putting this piece over a maxi dress is ultimately what felt natural to me. Katie and I had so much fun taking these photos.

My hat is from target, maxi dress from Forever 21, intimately embroidered button front slip from Free People, and silver birkenstocks from Target.

Thanks again to the lovely Katie Campbell at Katherine Campbell photography these shots are incredible =')
