Thrifted denim. A new project.

I recently went to the thrift store and I have been on the hunt for some Levi Strauss denim in two specific colors, medium wash and light wash. Sadly on this visit I only found a medium wash in my size, I did find a light wash pair but it wasn’t in my size and I was super bummed. My plan was to make them into high-waisted jeans for spring and summer. But now that I’ve been seeing vintage Levi’s with uneven and fringed hem lines, I kinda want to cut up my jeans hem and try these two trends I’ve been obsessed with. The denim I thrifted fit good and the jeans are nice and stretchy which I love. I am still confused as to what to do with my newly thrifted gem but I’m sure I will come up with something. I can do so much with them. What do you think I should do with my pair? Should I try the uneven trend, fringed hem or cut them into shorts? What are your lovely thoughts?

Uneven Hem Jean. 

I love the look of the uneven hem. This is a very popular trend right now and I’ve been seeing a lot of bloggers styling this trend in such unique ways. I love this trend with some black booties. This trend gives the jeans a nice little detail that isn’t too boring and plain.

Fringed Hem Jeans.

The look of fringe hem jeans is so cute, it will make a plain outfit look so much cooler and fun. This look will add some fun flare to your outfit, it can make pumps, sandals and booties look amazing paired together.

I’m really loving the white-t under a slip dress or a tiny tank top, (so Clueless) this trend is making a come back and everyone seems to love it including retailers because I’ve been seeing this layered trend almost in every store. I’ve had this black dress for two years now and I got it at my old job, G by Guess so its not available anymore and I added my Victoria’s secret white-T underneath. I really want to buy this Tee and lace Cami from Express it is super cute and you can wear it with any bottoms you want. You can really just wear any black tank dress or top and where a plain white-T you have in your closet already. Doesn’t have to be a black tank, it can be any color you want. But I really want to go back to Express and buy that top.

Be confident and love yourself. ❤

Rainy day.

20161016_124052

It’s raining today in San Francisco and I love it. Today I decided to wear this outfit for some quick errands. Can I just say I hate wearing jeans on rainy days especially jeans that feel so rough, once water hits them I feel so uncomfortable. But i love the length of these jeans. Im only 5’3 and i have a hard time finding jeans that fit me good, maybe I should try looking in the petites section. Does anyone recommend some soft jeans? I hope you all enjoy this quick outfit post. I couldn’t take the pictures outside because, (its raining) don’t want to ruin the camera or phone.

People to watch.

People to watch: Youtubers.

Hello, Welcome to my new series here on the blog. As you see on the title, it’s going to be called People to watch. I will be sharing on that series, three of my current favorite Youtubers, Bloggers and instagrammers. I love it when people introduce me to new Youtubers, bloggers, etc especially when they really deserve more followers, subbies and readers. Today I will be sharing my three current favorite Youtubers, I hope you all enjoy this series. Have a good weekend.

Its AlyRyan

The first video I ever watched from Aly was her Goodwill haul. Right off the bat I knew I would love her because her humor is contagious as well as her personality. I swear she finds the cutest things at the thrift store, her thrift hauls are addicting. Aly has the cutest kids, if you are a mommy and love following other mothers then you definitely should follow her on Instagram. Also if you don’t like cursing, then too bad because she curses….a lot….kinda. But that’s why I love her because she is herself.

Ashley Brooke.

I love Ashley’s styling videos. In the beginning she does a little talk through of all the pieces and in the end she shares a lookbook. She loves finding statement pieces and dressing them with basic items and make them wearable and fun. Her, “How to” videos are so much fun to watch. The very first video I watched was her, How to style high-waisted shorts.  She gives great styling tips. If you love fashion and watching lookbook videos, then you will love her. You can read her blog, Stylelogix.co and follow her on Instagram.

The Garsow Twins.

OK. Let’s be real. Since I’m a twin and they are twins, I had to subscribe to there channel and blog. I came acros Carli and Britta by them leaving a comment on one of my blog posts. I immediately clicked on there link and read some of the blog posts they posted. I noticed they have a YouTube channel, so I subscribed and I’m almost done catching up on all of the videos they have posted. You can read their blog, here. Instagram, here.

Thank you for reading and don’t forget to Subscribe to all three.

I love how this mustard, long tank is so versatile, you can wear it with shorts, jeans, legging or some opaque tights. The leather jacket gave this outfit a casual look for my morning day out with my sister and son at the Monterey Fishermans wharf for some lattes at a place called Water and Leaves. I love the outdoor seating the place has, its so calming and relaxing. I got there just before is started getting crowded. I really hope you all enjoy this post. Have a great weekend.

Three favorites.

The past couple of months I’ve been obsessing over three things and I thought it would be nice to share them with you all. Maybe after reading this you will want to purchase some of these items, or maybe something similar to it. Can you all believe it’s almost fall? I’m so excited. I have a few fall fashion related posts to come on the blog so stay tuned. Also do you guys love seeing fashion must haves on blog form or video form? Sometimes I feel like its easier to film some stuff rather than blogging about it. I would really love to know y’alls opinions on this. But I will be filming youtube videos soon, so if you would love to go and subscribe now it would be awesome or you can wait till I post a video.

You are a badass. How to stop doubting your greatness and start living an awesome life. – This book is so good. It kept me so entertained and focused, I couldn’t put it down. If you are someone who is still trying to figure yourself out, unmotivated, miserable or just wanting to change your life for the better then this book is perfect for you. I don’t want to ruin the book for you and would much rather you guys read it for yourselves but this book makes you open up your eyes and realize what’s really important and it will help you get to know yourself first. I really loved the chapter, millions of mirrors, its a great and very spot on chapter and I agreed with everything and notice some of the things in a lot of girls. Every girl needs to at least read that chapter in the store if you don’t want to buy the book.

Wet n Wild H2O proof liquid eyeliner – This eyeliner was a random and fast purchase because I was in desperate need of a new one and target didn’t have the one I wanted. This one caught my eye and I’m glad it did. Once I got home and used it, I realized the little curve the felt tip had. That little curve makes it so easy to apply and I don’t like a thick liner, I love a really thin one and this is so easy to maneuver. This lasts all day, very Pimentel, easy to apply, and it doesn’t smudge. The only thing I hate about this is that it takes a while for it to dry.

Michael Kors Bedford flap cross-body bag – I received this Michael Kors cross-body last year, I can’t remember if I got it for my birthday or mother’s day because they both land on the same month. But this has been my go to purse. It fits a lot of stuff for a small and compact bag. Its easy to just swing over your shoulders. I don’t like carrying big bags, I’m more of a small bag type of girl because I do have a toddler and he is always running around and I don’t have time to carry a pig purse. I did find some alternatives for you savvy beauties. Here and here.
