Lived In.

Happy Wednesday:

I’m a huge sucker for oversized tees.

Maybe it’s the super laid back vibe they give off, or maybe it’s the fact that they literally feel like you’re wearing your jammies – or it could be both. Nonetheless, I’m obsessed with this super, duper, totally relaxed, casual trend.

I’ve been caught wearing my oversized tee with heels – adding heels gives the overly slouchy top a more feminine feel.

But for today’s post, I wanted to really play around with the roughed up, lived-in look.

Sublime is definitely one of my favorite bands of all time – whenever I listen to them, I am automatically put in a good mood. When I saw this tee at my job during an overnight shift, I just knew it would be the perfect slouchy band tee.

To give this top some edge, I added my HUF socks. There are many reasons why I love my HUF socks, but the main reason? They always add the perfect amount of honest sass to my outfits. For that true Urban, New York look, I threw on my Timberland boots. I swear  I always feel like I can kick ass when rocking ’em.

To cover up on this breezy, summer night, I completed the look with a semi-oversized denim jacket. It’s a true essential in my closet.

There’s only one more outfit left in my June Denim Diary series. I hope you’ve been enjoying my denim inspired looks! This next one is definitely my favorite look!

Top: Old Navy.

Off-the-shoulder is definitely one of my favorite trends this season. It’s literally all over the runaways and street style blogs. There’s just something inevitably delicate about exposed shoulders – it’s dreamy.

I’ve been dying to get my hands on a perfect off-the-shoulder top to style endlessly this spring/summer season. I found this one at my job for less than 20 bucks! I love how dainty white can be & with the added ruffle, it has the ultimate boho vibe.

Denim: Target.

To style this top, I decided to pair it with boyfriend jeans. I honestly love being able to flaunt feminine vibes with loose fitting clothing. There’s just something so powerful about being able to feel beautiful in non-fitting clothing. Am I the only one who feels that way?

Wedges: Steve Madden

I wore my Steve Madden wedges to give my outfit a more clean feel. With all of the bagginess going on, the contrast from the shoes is what ties the look together. I added casual accessories to keep my outfit brunch date appropriate – beaded jewelry is always my go to! I simply love how sassy jewelry can make you feel: it’s the world of sassy self expression! Headscarves have been really fun to incorporate into my outfits, too. I need to pick up a few more and start playing around with different designs. This headscarf game is real. 

How would you style this off-the-shoulder top? Let me know in the comment section down below!

I have been wanting to style my boyfriend jeans in a blogpost for the longest and since June is denim month over on my blog, I couldn’t help but go for it!

Happy Wednesday:
I am jumpsuit obsessed – and my new job doesn’t help my obsession AT ALL.

Bag : Thrifted
I started a new position at Old Navy for Visual Styling and Merchandising and never have I ever loved a retail job as much as I love this one. I was sucked into the retail world right after high school, needing the extra cash to support myself through my college years. At the time, I dreaded it – working for a larger company can make you feel unmotivated, and can definitely make you feel stuck in a rut. But Visual Styling & Merchandising is a world that I am absolutely in love with. Styling because hey, my name is Glendaly and I have a fashion blog. Y’all know my love for styling outfits is real. Merchandising, though, is a field in the retail world that I’m starting to explore – it’s interesting trying to figure out what will sell best in the floor plan. It’s the technical work behind the master business plan & as someone who wants to eventually own their own boutique, being able to learn the ins-and-outs of visuals is a blessing.

Another bonus: being surrounded by cute, fun clothes. The inspo never ends! Old Navy has definitely stepped their game up; they’re not your typical mom shop anymore. They are totally fashion forward at an affordable budget. My favorite thing, though? Being able to pick up inexpensive looks for the whole family! As a working momma on a budget, being able to keep my entire family looking fashionable while being able to afford it is bomb.

Jumpsuit : Old Navy
This denim jumpsuit was a piece I fell in love with immediately the day it came into my store. I knew for a fact that it would sell out super quick. I’m so glad I was able to get my hands on it because this is one piece that can be styled in various ways. It’s the beauty of jumpsuits – they can be dressed up or down, for almost any occasion. Any piece that can give me variety is a piece I need in my closet. It also makes me feel really funky, any clothing piece that can make me feel like a burst of fashionable sunshine is a piece for me.

May’s Collage & Wishlist | 2016

Happy Monday:

And I’m back at it again with another monthly Collage & Wishlist.

This type of post is definitely becoming one of my faves – recycling old magazines in an inspirational way keeps my creative drive going. Make it a plan to invite all of your closest gal pals & have a mood board party! Worth. Your. Time. Trust me.

This months collage is a hybrid between wordspiration and denim daze. Denim is my current go-to fabric and I am sensing a bit of foreshadowing action happening in this months collage. I have been denim obsessed as of late and cannot wait to share some funky denim ensembles I’ve been planning.

I’ve also been obsessed with inspirational quotes. I recently found this Instagram dedicated to quality quotes and I swear it has enhanced my daily perspective to pure positivity. Even on my off days, these quotes inspire me to be grateful and to always feel blessed regardless of my struggles. The page is called @thegoodquote and I recommend everyone give them a follow.

 

Summer Daze.

 

 

My Wishlist is relatively simple this month. The minimal vibes have been getting stronger as I’ve been getting older. It’s just a way of life, I think. I’m totally in love with this romper – it reminds me that I still need to invest in the perfect romper this summer season. To highlight the delicate black print on the romper, I decided to add black accessories. Cool summer nights need a romper like this to breeze through.

What’s been your inspiration as of late? Is there anything on your current Wishlist? Leave me a comment and let me know down below!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Spring OOTD | Vivacious Apparel.

Happy Wednesday:

I am SO excited for this weeks video – it’s super short but I promise you, it’s totally sweet. 

Since starting my new job three weeks ago, I feel like I am FINALLY getting back on track with both filming & blogging.

I do plan on doing weekly videos and posts again: one video and one outfit post per week. There may be some exceptions on certain weeks were I post up two non-video posts on my blog, like this week, but overall, I do plan on getting back into a regular schedule. Thank you for keeping up with me!

Today’s video is an Outfit of the Day, featuring a special top handmade by my lovely friend and fellow blogger, Ashley, of Vivacious Lifestylin’. She, like me, has a small online shop where she sells her handmade goodies. I am a HUGE supporter of small businesses & artists, so I thought it would be fun to trade some goodies and style & feature them on our platforms. I decided to films a video because I’ve been itching to experiment with filming.

It’s that growth – I’m ready to start creating quality content, folks.

Without further or do, here is my OOTD Featuring Vivacious Apparel:

Thank you so much for watching!
