Shop my style


When I was in undergrad my friends would tell me that all the clothes I bought looked the same. It was always something I thought was funny because in a way its sort of true. I tend to gravitate towards silhouettes and styles that I'm familiar with and that I know will suit my petite frame. I'd rather buy iterations of things that I would actually like then invest in trendy pieces that aren't durable.
Last summer I gave into the one shoulder trend. This style is so wearable- jeans, shorts, a nice pencil skirt! Plus its a great quality top made from natural fibers. I liked this top so much I wanted another. This red top was so beautiful with the eyelet detail. Its so versatile and such a great top for Kansas City summers! Plus I got this blouse for $10 off Poshmark!
Instead of opting for my normal "Cool Girl Summer Uniform" (going three summers strong) where I would normally wear this shirt, shorts, and Birkenstocks I paired this top with a pair of skinny jeans and wedges.
I had been eying this Gucci Belt with Crystal Dionysus Buckle since I saw Lisa Vanderpump wear it a few seasons ago in RHOBH. Don't judge! LVP has a real British Girlboss/Barbie kind of style that I just love. I had never seen this style before and it was so classy and unique. The Dionysus buckle is definitely a shift from the GG style which I wish would all just get sucked into a sinkhole. Plus the Dionysus style/buckle actually has a little myth behind it. Dionysus is said to have crossed the river Tigris on a tiger sent by Zeus.  
Percy Jackson would've been proud of my purchase. Although it was on the pricier side this belt is so beautiful and ornate. I am wearing a size 75 for reference. Gucci belt sizing is tricky and honestly I wish I would've gotten a 70 or smaller? I called the Gucci store and they said you can get up to 3 holes put into the belt for $25 and if they can't do it in store (due to preserving the integrity of the belt) they send it to their factory in Jersey. I'll keep you posted. Next time I'm in DC I'm going to see if the store will add extra holes for me. What do you think of my matte red nails? Different right?

Overall I am pretty happy with this belt. I did think it was funny that in Killing Eve Villanelle wore this belt. #STYLEGOALS

I think this has been the best week I've had in a long time. Since I technically had school last week on my cruise this is my week off and it has been GLORIOUS. I've spent so much time reading, catching up on TV, spending time with my friends, going to Sephora (PSA VIB/Rouge sale is happening rn), and I even went to a Gilmore Girls trivia night with some friends yesterday! This week has really made me feel so grateful for all of the people in my life. You keep me going through this rough patch and I can't thank you enough. Your company and friendship means so much to me.

In other news, start my last semester of graduate schools (Where has time gone?!) next week. I am excited and nervous. I take 3 more classes and then I'm done! So I'm not sure what the blog will be like during that time, but working on the blog so vigorously this week has been such a joy so I feel like there will still be more to come as always.

Wearing: Top - J. Crew (sold out, but similar), jeans - Urban Outfitters, shoes - Harajuku Lovers (sold out, but similar), belt - Gucci, nails - Chanel Ultime Velvet Nail Polish in 636

Here's a fun fact about me, I've always wanted to visit Alaska! Ever since I read Into the Wild it has always been a dream of mine to see Alaska. Sometime ago my mom asked me if I was interested in going on an Alaskan cruise with my extended family. To be completely honest at first I said no because of my summer classes. My summer classes ran all the way through the week of our cruise and I had no idea whether I would finish all my coursework. However, with a lot of planning I managed to get it all done. As promised here is my photo diary!

Greetings and salutations, friends! Seasons 52 invited me back to try their new Rosé All Day, All Summer menu. Things are never boring at Seasons 52 because they revamp their menu every season! They also pour 52 world class wines and have added a carefully curated rosé menu. I was stoked to stop in with my friend Mallory!

Hi friends! With the Kansas City heat being a million degrees my ideal makeup routine is just sunscreen and moisturizer. Honestly Coola's Mineral Sun Silk Organic Sunscreen is everything I swear. Nevertheless, in true Chanel fashion my beauty routine is followed by a few other products and then I somehow have a full face on. How did that happen? Here's a few beauty products I'm excited about right now!

Skyn Iceland Oxygen Infusion Night Cream 
I've always been pretty serious about moisturizer but this night cream takes some of the edge off. I love this hilarious but spot on packaging. Plus this creamy smooth night cream isn't too shabby either. I feel like this is one of those creams that not only feels luxurious but also does its job. I wake up in the morning and my skin looks rejuvenated and doesn't feel the slightest bit dry.

I've needed eye cream for so long and I love this little Skyn Iceland tube. The applicator gives you just enough product when you turn the cap so you can kind of portion out how much you really need. I have a tendency to go kind of nuts with eye cream. I have a kinda love hate relationship with the pen but I definitely like that its more travel friendly.

This is seriously my favorite KVD shade its so stinking pretty. Its a cool berry inspired by the lip shade that Miss Argentina in Beetlejuice wore?!

When I found this ELL at Marshalls for half the price I nearly screamed!
As a RHOBH fan this palette was a must! It's inspired by the Housewives star and pop-star Erika Jayne. I was a little nervous about all the pinks and glitter but this palette is so versatile! Plus the browns remind me of old OG KVD palettes which is actually pretty hard. I have really been loving this palette tbh.

Besides these beauty faves I'm also loving Guava White Tea Lemonades from Starbucks, SUITS SEASON 9?! with the return of Patrick J. Adams, and Pearson the new Suits spin-off. I am also loving that I almost finished with summer classes! I am going on vacation with my family next week and am actually planning on doing a post. Stay golden friends!

Back when the Hunter for Target Collection dropped I was on the fence whether I needed this short sleeve romper. By the time I decided to purchase it the romper was gone. However as fate would have it a seller on Poshmark had it listed for $6, NWT!
