Street Style & OOTD

*Makes cool-guy face* lol

Summer is in full effect and I’m ready to paint the town red (and blue *smirks*) with this leafy Hawaiian shirt and electric-blue shoe ensemble.

I went with long khaki shorts to balance out the risky fit. When you are incorporating so much with your shirt and your shoes, you want to do a more refined bottom so everything doesn’t clash. The shirt has small accents of blue, which is why I paired it with the electric-blue sneakers–an edgy but understated look.

Don’t forget to smile and enjoy the summer weather!

White + Denim: Look 2


Hey, hey, hey! For my second White + Denim look, I kept things super casual.

I think this outfit screams summer, especially because of the light denim cutoffs and high-tops. It’s the perfect look to wear from any sunny day into a late summer night.

Red-Hot Summer’s Day

R-E-D spells red, H-O-T spells hot. Put ’em together and whatta ya got? Red hot, red hot, red hot!

Shout-out to all my cheerleaders out there–that cheer seemed quite appropriate for today’s #OOTD because of these li’l red shorts I’m sporting by the brand Lush (one of my faves).

Now that it’s summer, I’ve got a lot more time on my hands, and one of my favorite things to do is to go outside and read a good book…preferably a mushy summer romance. I know it can get pretty hot, but that’s why I slipped on these breezy shorts and a cream knit tank to help stay cool! I encourage all of you to get out of the house this summer and have some fun, whether it be chilling by the pool or exploring your local hiking trails.

White + Denim: Look 1


Hey, y’all!

Now that summer is finally here, it’s time to bust out all the light colors. I’ve done a post on the all white trend before and I can’t help but feature this summer color again. This time, I want to pair white with my favorite fabric: denim. But more specifically, light denim!

Hero

Here I paired an easy-breezy button-down with some Levi’s boyfriend jeans. Oh, and a black felt hat. Just some basic pieces in some basic colors.

I definitely used L.A.’s cool and chic vibe as inspiration for this outfit. I’m loving the minimalistic style that’s seen on all the cool L.A. gals.

I’ve got one more white + denim look for you guys coming soon!

If you have been following the blog, you might remember me posting about Boy Meets Girl in the fall. Now they have come out with some cute, casual, everyday clothing pieces for summer.

Here are my three favorite pieces in their collection and how I style them.

Nordstrom_BP_blog_BMG_100_organicI love this 100% organic tank—it is so comfortable and easy to style. I decided to pair it with denim shorts and Converse to keep the outfit casual. For another idea on how to style the 100% organic tank, check out my Farmer’s Market OOTD.

HEROThese ruffle trim shorts are the first pair that I’ve ever owned by Boy Meets Girl and I’m completely obsessed. Because they’re made out of a nicer material, it makes it so easy to dress up or down. For this outfit, I went a little more dressed up with a statement necklace. If you’re interested in another way to style these shorts, check out my Girly/Sporty OOTD.

Nordstrom_BP_Blog_BMG2Sundays are typically my makeup-free day. I’m usually running around doing errands, cleaning and studying for my classes the following day. I styled my Dreamer muscle tank with capri yogas, a hand-me-down Harvard hat and Nikes.

The last school days are upon us, and for many this means graduation!

Although I still have a year to go before I finish high school, I will be attending a few ceremonies now. Whether you’re actually graduating this year (@ seniors: congrats!!!) or are just attending a graduation, you’ll need something fun to wear.

Here’s a last-minute look that can work for both graduates and attendees:

What’s so simple is that all you need is a fun dress and some sandals, wedges or heels. I kept it to the bare minimum when it came to accessories and let this printed dress take the spotlight.

Fun in the Sun!

Hello, everyone! I’ve been taking beach trips quite frequently lately and snapping a few shots while I’m there (of course!). So sit back, relax and enjoy as I take you on a magical journey to none other than…the beach!

OOTD: Portland Rainy Day

As I have said time and time again, Portland or Pacific Northwest weather in general is very unusual in the spring. For the past couple weeks the high has been mid 70s, but it won’t reach that until late afternoon. So for days like these, this is what I wear:

Something my friends and I really enjoy is having little photo shoots. It’s a great way to pass time and you’re left with tons of cute pics to post on Instagram…I mean, what’s better?

For this shoot, we decided to dress all bohemian and take a trip up to the mountains, where we pranced through fields and just had a great time with each other.

Now I know not everyone has an expensive camera just lying around, but you can totally use your phone or even ask your friends or parents if they have a camera you can borrow.

I’ll be the first to admit how much I love posing in front of the camera and workin’ it, but something about actually taking the pictures is exhilarating yet relaxing at the same time.

I had a blast playing photographer and I bet you guys will, too.

OOTD: Tea Bar with Clare

This weekend Clare, Will and I went to our local tea shop to catch up. The three of us have very busy lives, and as graduation approaches the opportunities for us to spend time together are limited. With the help of Will’s amazing camera work, I got a great OOTD pic of myself and Clare.

I hope everyone’s finishing the year strong and getting excited for summer like I am.
