Is Social Media Unrealistic?

Do you guys remember last week when I told you that i wanted to write a somewhat personal post, well here it is. I really want to talk about why social media seems so unrealistic at times, and I really want to talk about showing off your real success. I have to say I'm addicted to social media, I will be in school scrolling, and watching everyone's stories. It's really fun to see all of the content, and sometimes see an inspirational quote here or there. I will say through that with me being a blogger I follow a lot of other bloggers, and I feel like some people just seem like they are perfect. I will scroll through my feed, and see beautiful fashion bloggers, models, and amazing travel bloggers. All of the people I follow inspire me but sometimes I have to wonder if they are making some sort of an impact on me as an individual.

I do really feel inspired when I see their photos, but then an element of me is like, "these people's lives seem like an unreachable dream". I mean who gets paid to travel around the world, that is just incredible. Many people end up working ordinary 9-5 jobs, some jobs they may not like, but yet there is people out here living their dream being a full time influencer. I really want to be a full time fashion blogger, but i feel like it is so unreachable. I know that in my lifetime I want to be an entrepreneur, but it feels so far away. I am working an ordinary high school job at a fast food joint, and while I enjoy my job, I want to be a #girlboss and be a full time fashion blogger, and live my dream. Being a full time fashion blogger would be amazing because i could inspire many people from around the world, all while having fun showing off my style. It just love inspiring others, and I already inspire people, and to me that is amazing. I receive direct messages, and comments all the time that are so sweet, and supportive, and it just motivates me so much. Also if you're wondering what my life plan is as of now, I am going to college to be on the safe side, and then I will find a job that correlates with my degree. I will always continue blogging through, and if I could go full time with it, I would for sure. It is a part time thing for sure because I do work with brands, and get paid, and that is great. I do always try to work with brands who correlate with my blog style, that way you guys get things shown to you that are interesting. Right now I am working with two hair companies, and a clothing company, and I'm so excited to share all of that content soon!

Now to discuss social media, I feel like it is totally unrealistic. We only share the best of the best of our content, and I even do this. I feel like we are all competing for social acceptance, and we all want to showcase this perfect life, but the truth is that nothing is perfect. What I notice a lot with big fashion bloggers is that they will flaunt their expensive wardrobe, travel around the world, and eat killer food. All while they do this, they will document it all through pretty images, and you have to wonder how they achieve all that. They may look successful, and amazing, but inside they could be miserable, and very materialistic. I'm not saying this about all big fashion bloggers, but I'm trying to tell you guys that their lives are not perfect, and you should know that sometimes it's a false allusion. You can have all the expensive clothes in the world, or the biggest house, but you may be miserable. Money will never buy happiness, or success. Real success is healthiness, happiness, relationships, and being fully content with your life. We should all document real success more because it's important. Show who you are naturally, and just let it radiate from you. Let your real success show, show how happy, and healthy you are, and really encourage others to do the same thing.

I love being a fashion blogger because I really enjoy inspiring, and encouraging others to be their best selves. In no way is my life perfect, and i want you guys to know that. We are only human, and we all have our little imperfections, and we should embrace them. Now I encourage all of you guys to show who you really are on social media, and to not be afraid to be yourself. I'm very thankful that I have this platform to express myself, and inspire all of you guys. Thanks so much for following along, and I challenge all of you guys to be natural, and show your real success. I hope all of you have a good rest of your week, and I will see you guys next week with another post.

Pairing White With Pink

There is no doubt that i love the color combination of pink, and white, and i recently put together this outfit, and i am in love. This outfit is so cute for a casual day out with friends, or even just visiting a lake or something. I love pink and white together, it's a really cute color combo for spring, and summer because it really creates a fresh look. 

I am totally loving this boho kind of shirt. The sleeve details are so cute! This shirt is see through so you could use it as a beach cover-up, or just wear it with an undershirt if you're going to be wearing it as a regular top. I also want to tell you guys that I am off of spring break, and it feels so busy now. My spring break was fun, and i also worked a lot. I was very bored too because i had so much free time, i defiantly am suited for a busy lifestyle, so it's good to be back.

Outfit details: My top is from Target, my sunglasses are from Amazon, my shoes are from Kate Spade, my shorts are from Target, and my earrings are from Rose Gal. 

I hope you guys enjoyed the look, and i will see you guys next week with another post. I really want to do a long personal post next week about something but i don't know what i want to write about yet. If you guys have any ideas you can comment below or reach out to me through Instagram. I just want to spread some positive vibes in the next post!! I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week, and thanks for tuning in.

Spring Break Outfit Ideas!

It may have already been spring break for some people, but for a lot of people my age they are on spring break right now. Whether or not you are on spring break or not these clothing ideas are really good for vacation wear, and just the warmer weather in general. I personally have been loving an airy boho chic vibe for spring break because it represents a weight kind of being lifted off my shoulders, and it also represents that I'm here to have fun, and relax. I am seriously so glad that it's finally warm now, and that means i can pull out all the spring, and summer clothes. I'm actually going to organize my spring/summer wardrobe today because i have a day off from work, and I'm so excited!! I also wanted to try something different today and put together three outfits that would be perfect for spring break to go along with the picks. I think this will be very helpful for those of you who are having a hard time dressing for spring break. 
Outfit one is a perfect look for a beach or pool day. I wanted to throw in a beach or pool outfit because it's spring break, and that means it's time to break out that bikini! I love the cool waist line detail on the bikini because it looks so fun, and beachy. I also could not forget to add Birkenstocks to this look because they are really cozy, and they also create a cute boho vibe to the outfit. 

Shop the look

Outfit number two is a more dressy look for spring break. I picked out a palm printed dress because that is such a cute print for spring break, and i paired it off with some cute wedges, and some tassel earrings. This kind of an outfit would be good to wear for a dinner, or event during spring break that is a little more dressy. 

Shop the look

Outfit three is a more casual look that is still super cute. If you are going to be soaking up the sun i would wear something like this outfit because it's lightweight, and has a hat so then you will be protected from the sun. The floral top is cropped so there is lots of room to breathe, and this outfit would create such a cute spring meets summer sun vibe if you know what i mean.

Spring Break Moodboard

Hey guys I'm back with another blog post. It will be on spring break on Friday, and i just wanted to share a little mood board of what's been making me inspired for the break. I have been feeling totally inspired by brighter colors, and lots of tropical stuff. I really hope it's warm over spring break so i can crack out my bikini, and get a nice tan. I also want to rock some cute outfits while i hangout with my friends. I'm not really doing anything special over spring break, but i will probably just be hanging out, and working a lot. I really feel overdue for a break because i work my butt off everyday, and i really can't wait to get time to relax a little bit! I hope you guys understand why i can't post as much as i would like to, it's just a really tough semester right now, but I'm pushing through. Also all of the photos in the mood board are an idea of what i want to wear over spring break, and also what i want to do over the break. I totally wish it were warm enough for the pool, but we will save that one for summer break! I hope all of y'all have a wonderful week, and i will share some spring break outfit ideas later. I might also be posting on Friday of this week since i will be on spring break on Friday but it depends on how busy i am this week. Anyways thanks for tuning in, and i will see you guys soon!

Styling a High Waisted Floral Skirt

Hey guys I'm back with another lookbook after a very busy week last week. Your girl is going to fill you in on track real quick because i would like to say a couple things. So if you didn't know i run track, and cross country, i do. So I had a track meet over the weekend, and i got sun burnt so my face might look red in these pictures. I ran the two mile, and i ended up getting 12:50, so that was a good time because my personal record is 12:47. My team has also been doing a fundraiser, and I'm so thankful for everyone that supported my team by donating. I have raised 190 dollars, and my team has raised 2,909 dollars so far! We are doing great, and I'm so thankful to have lots of support for my team. 

Now to speak of the outfit, I am seriously loving floral printed things for the spring. I cracked out this floral skirt that is usually a late spring/summer staple but I'm rocking it in the middle of March. I just can't wait for it to get warm for real because the weather right now is bipolar. This skirt is a vibrant floral skirt so i usually style it by tucking in a basic tee. It creates a cute, causal, and a tiny bit dressy look that i love. For accessorizing i wore this look with my Coach glasses because otherwise i would not be able to see, and i put in some white tassel earrings. I also topped it off with my beloved white Danskos because these are the perfect sandal. 

Outfit Details: My top is from Target, my skirt is from Forever 21, my shoes are from Dansko, my earrings are from Rose Gal, my watch is from Garmin, and my glasses are from Coach. 

I hope you guys got inspired for spring. I'll see you guys next week with more inspo, and i hope all of y'all have a great rest of your week.

Peplum and Leggings For Spring

Hi guys welcome back to another blog post. I am totally writing about spring even through it just snowed yesterday, but so be it. Can it just be spring already!!! Anyways today i wanted to share a look for spring that is super cute. It's just a simple casual outfit that is totally effortless, but yet still looks put together at the same time. 

Me and Gabby actually took these photos at public when we were grocery shopping together. The wall at publix is seriously aesthetically pleasing so we had to do a photo shoot haha. I have been totally loving leggings lately because they are so comfy, and they also are super cute. I always style leggings with a more baggier top that way the look balances itself out. To talk about the weather while shooting these photos, it was actually not bad at all outside. It was not warm, but it wasn't cold either, so i was fine. I just can't wait for the warmer weather through. 

Outfit details: My top is from Kohl's, my leggings are from Aerie, my boots are from Macy's. my watch is from Garmin, and my glasses are from Coach.

That is all for today's look. I hope you guys got some inspo from it, and I'll see you guys next Tuesday with another post.

Some Of My Spring Wardrobe Staples

12345678 9

Spring is just around the corner, and that means it's time to start cracking out the shorts, and short sleeved tops. It is warming up a little bit where i live, but it's not close to being warm yet. But in the meantime i can dream of what i will be wearing once it's spring for real.

1)Gingham Print-Gingham print is such a perfect spring, and summer print, specifically spring. I wore it a lot last year, and i plan on doing the same thing this year. Gingham can pretty much look great with anything, but i style it with a more basic piece of clothing that way the gingham kind of pops out at you a little bit.

2)Sandals-You will always catch me in sandals once it's warmer. I love the Dansko ones that you can see in this photo. Sandals are just the bomb in general, they make you look good, and they are also comfy. 

3)Floral Print-I have to love a good floral print for the spring. If you have not noticed already from my Instagram, i am already bringing out the florals.

4)Off the shoulder tops-These were so trendy last year for spring, but there is not doubt this year that they will be in again. They are really cute for showing off your shoulders in a sophisticated classy way, but they don't look skanky or anything, so they are good.

5)Spaghetti Strap Top-I usually break out the spaghetti strap tops near the middle of spring. They are perfect for really warm days, and they also look cute.

6)Sunglasses-I love sunglasses because they add a cool vibe to a look, and they are good if you don't feel like putting on makeup. Sunglasses can make any outfit look chic, and i love pairing sunnies with swimwear.

7)Leggings-These are always my staple no matter what season. Leggings are just so comfy, and they also make my legs look thinner even through I'm already skinny haha. I wear leggings at least three days a week, so they are my total staple. The key to wearing leggings is to wear a long shirt that way your butt isn't in everyone's face, and then you just pulled it off!

8)Peplum tops-Peplum tops are a good kind of top to wear in the spring because it's kind of flirty, and shows off your waist a little bit. Peplum tops are also girly, and spring would be a good time to dress more girly because everything is flourishing, and there is flowers everywhere. I don't know if that made sense but i hope you know what i mean.

9)Cross body bags-Cross body bags are good if you don't like carrying your purse in your hand. Cross body bags work for any season, but i love cross body's for spring, and summer because that means my hands are free, and i can enjoy the world. For example if I'm getting ice cream i don't have to worry about holding a purse while i eat it because my purse is on my shoulder. It just makes my life easier, and when it's warmer outside i like to enjoy everything without carrying my purse with my hand.

That's all for today's post. I hope i inspired some of you guys to start thinking of what you are going to wear for spring. I will see you guys soon with another post! Have a good rest of your week.

A Little Athleisure Look

Hello guys I'm back with another post. Today I'll be sharing a cute athletic look because workout clothes are always so comfy, and such a must. It seems like i am always wearing workout clothes so i wanted to show a look where i am wearing workout clothes. I love this look because it's so comfy, yet also really cute. This look also shows off my legs a little bit too because the top is cropped, so you can see my build. I am a competitive runner so i do have some leg muscle on me. To talk about my pants, they are so comfy!!! I love wearing them, and they look great. If you also could not tell i am squinting in these photos because it was so bright outside while taking these pictures haha.

As you can also see i am posing with some Starbucks. I love Starbucks even through they are expensive, but what i do is only go there when i have a gift card. It's like girl who wants to pay 5 dollars for a drink?? Not me, but i love their frappes, and some of their fruit refreshers are good. Also shout out to my best friend who took these photos for me. I am so grateful for her because she is such an amazing friend, and has always been there for me no matter what. I am kind of going through a tough time right now with my old friend Sarah, and I'm taking steps to make it better, and having a best friend to help me through it all means so much. If want to read more about friendship, and what's going on you can read about it here

Outfit Details: My top is from Gamiss, my running pants are from Nike, my shoes are from Nike, my watch is from Garmin, and my glasses are from Coach.

That's all for today's look. I hope you guys all have a great rest of the week.

Starting Spring Early

Spring is barely here, but we have been having warmer weather where i live so therefore i can say it's spring. I literally hate winter with a passion, and it's funny because my friends all say i start spring too early. Like i'm not kidding if it's a seventy degree day you already know i'm getting my tan on even if it's January. So with spring around the corner i wanted to share a spring look. Also look how dreadfully pale i am!! I really need to get dark again. I was actually looking at a bunch of tropical photos on Instagram, and i'm craving to go on a tropical getaway trip. 

This kind of a dress is good for a casual day out downtown, or if there is some kind of social event. It's a cute, and season appropriate because there is flowers on the dress. When i initially got this dress from Ruufe i was a little apprehensive about the royal blue because i don't really wear that color blue, but i think it looks really cute.  I'm starting my spring Instagram theme early just in case if you didn't know already. I am just so ready for it to fully warm up, and i can't wait to be rocking the bikinis while i'm at my best friend Gabby's pool. That's not for a while through, so i can dream of bikini weather while it's forty eight degrees and raining

Outfit Details: My dress is from Ruufe, my shoes are from Dansko, my glasses are from Coach. 

That's all for today's post. I hope i inspired you guys with spring outfit ideas. I will be sharing more spring looks soon. Have a good rest of your week guys!

Finding Your Real Friends, and How It Can Be Hard

Hello guys i am back with another post. I was initially just going to post an outfit and be done, but i wanted to talk about finding your real friends, and how hard it can be sometimes. So if you guys didn't already know i am a junior in high school, and high school can be pretty shallow sometimes if you're not friends with the right people. Long story short i recently had a "fight" happen in my friend group so this is why i wanted to touch on this subject just to spread the awareness to always choose your friends wisely, and be careful who you hang out with. So to tell what happened, i have this one insecure friend who posted on her snapchat story "why don't people like hanging out with me". And some background on her: She has a lot of mental issues, and she is always complaining, and angry. So i commented something like "i don't know. Maybe because you are always angry". After that she just went off, but i wasn't trying to offend her, i was just trying answer her question just based off of how she acts. I was just being realistic, but maybe i said it too bluntly. I feel a little at fault because i should have thought more about my answer because she is really sensitive, and takes everything really personally. Then she blocked me on snapchat after going off on me. I don't get it because i was just trying to answer her question, but i think i could have done it in a better way. She has also blocked my best friend Gabby on snapchat, even through Gabby didn't say anything to her that was hurtful. She was saying stuff to me like, "you make half my problems worse". I didn't fight back because i don't want to stoop to her level, i just defended myself, and if it gets any worse i will go talk to a school counselor about it because I'm not going to let myself get bullied. And just to put it out there, you should never blame your problems on someone else, because it's your problem. I get it if you readers feel as if I'm at fault, and maybe i am, i was just trying to answer her question.

If you couldn't tell I'm trying to keep this generic because i don't want to tell every detail, but some of the stuff she said to me was nasty, and i will be speaking out about it for sure because no one deserves to be bullied, or yelled at. Finding your real friends can be hard, and it takes time. I'm just so glad that i decided to get into track, and cross country because i met really great friends through that, and those friends are like my squad now. In your younger years especially friends may come and go, and the real ones will be great to you and stay, you just have to find those friends. This situation really taught me to be more careful with how i word things because people could take it the wrong way. Me and this "friend" may stop being friends for all i know, but she is mad at me. If the best thing is to stop being friends with her, then I'll leave if i have to. It's not bad to leave a toxic friend at all because that just means more space for better friends. It can just be hard sometimes to find the right kind of people for you because everyone is so diverse, and sometimes it takes a while to weed through the crowd and see who you really should be hanging out with. I remember when i met my best friend Gabby my sophomore year of high school, and now we are like family. I'm so grateful to have Gabby as my best friend, and i'm really glad i met her because she is the closest friend i ever had. Like yeah i had best friends in middle school, but i was not as close to them as i am with Gabby. So it just goes to show that it can take some time to find the right people for you, but once you do it will be awesome. 

Outfit details: My top is from Target, my jeans are from Kohl's, my boots are from Macy's, my watch is from Garmin, and my glasses are from Coach. 

I hope ya'll enjoyed this, and i would love to hear your thoughts on this subject. I'm just feeling a bit torn because i don't know what i did wrong, i just think i could have worded it in a better way. Let me know your thoughts.
