The Future is Female.

Happy Tuesday:

It’s been a good minute since I picked up a camera & shot on manual.

Before I started my blog, heck, before I even started my YouTube channel, I first became interested being behind the camera. I even applied to FIT in the hopes of majoring in Fashion Photography. But I’ll be honest, I didn’t really commit to photography the way I should have and wasn’t really surprised when I got my rejection letter, either. Life. It happens.

& I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I’ve been feeling super nostalgic lately – I’ve been itching to get back into old habits.

With that in play & my current, serious obsession with the whole Mom/Daughter-Blogger-Duo-thing, I decided to spend an afternoon shooting with my mini. When we’re out and about, she always asks me to take her photos – this just felt right.

At the end, I asked her if she had fun doing the shoot and she yelled “Yes!” with no hesitation.

Happy Wednesday:

Nothing feels more amazing than watching your dreams become your reality. I was not planning on having another shoot with Kaelynn for another few months but baby girl was ready to take photos with mommy. #blessed

This was definitely not expected – but it’s totally something I am extremely happy about. My obsession with the Mom & Daughter Blogger Duo is real and I cannot wait to start heading in that same direction with my own blog.

I was teaching the munchkin how to cross her legs and her attempts were beyond adorable to watch. And she totally got the hang of it after a while! The fact that she is totally open to trying new things makes my heart so warm; there’s really nothing else I can ask for as a mama.

Working on getting detailed shots is the next thing we’re going to tackle next time I include baby girl. She’s getting the hang of it and that means everything.

My little forever girl. ❤

Happy Thursday:

One of my New Year’s resolution for both my blog and YouTube channel is definitely branching out into the world of Mom Blogging. I follow so many mom bloggers who coordinate their looks with their little ones; and the swagspiration is always on point. Now that my girl is almost 2 1/2 years old, I am excited to slowly introduce her to the blogging world and hope that she enjoys it as much as I do.

I’m happy to say that our first impromptu photo shoot went pretty well.

Beautiful Kae  Chola Mugshot

Smokin’ in the Boys Room || First Day of School Outfit: College Edition

Happy Friday:

I can’t believe the summer is officially over and the school season is already upon us. I’ve been out of university the past year due to having my baby, so it’s kind of weird for me to say that my summer vacation is over. I am super excited about finishing up my last year, though!

Just so you guys know, I did takes pictures of my outfit before hand, mainly because of the busy schedule I will be having the week I start school. This might be the trend for me when it comes to school related outfits – all of my friends have already graduated, so I don’t have anyone to take photos of me on campus.

pic5I bought my backpack about two years ago during an Urban Outfitters sale. I paid only 10 bucks for it, which is amazing! If you ever shop at Urban, make sure you do it when they have their sales. You’ll get some dope pieces for super cheap. I added patches to make it more personal – I have been collecting patches for the past few months, so expect a post soon on my collection & how I add patches to my backpack.

For my top, I went with my ‘50 Cent’ inspired tank crop from American Eagle. It’s super light weight & comfortable and I am obsessed with the way it’s cut. It has such a flattering neckline. My necklace is from my DeadGysie collection – this one in particular makes me feel like a Forest Fairy.

As for bottoms, I stole my boyfriend’s Zara sweats and rocked them in a high-waisted fashion. These pants are very comfortable and also frames me nicely.

For shoes, I went with my red Vans to add a pop of color. I also went with sneakers for my first day because I will be on campus for roughly 9 hours. My main goal with this outfit was comfort; it’s going to be fun getting use to being a college student, again.

T-Shirt Dress: Lookbook Summer ’15 || Video

Happy Hump day:

I know Wednesday is normally my outfit [post] day, but I decided to switch things up this week.

Here’s my newest video; 3 looks styling my favorite little black dress.

Which look would you wear? One, two or three?

‘Till Friday,

The Girl with the Gypsy Soul.

Happy Hump Day:

I’m so sorry that it’s been 2 weeks since my last outfit post – things at home have been super intense. There’s a family member in the hospital who’s in critical condition, so everything has been seriously out of whack. I haven’t had the time to do anything, I feel like! Nonetheless, I managed to throw this look together on Monday for a few mom tasks I needed to take care of. There was no real effort in coming up with this outfit: I’ve come to the realization that these type of outfits, the ones I style with no real effort, are always my favorite. I loved this look because it was super effortless & perfectly flowly. My gypsy soul thrives when these two are in harmony with my look.

I hope you guys appreciate the fact that I am repeater when it comes to my clothing pieces. You guys have seen all of these pieces, at least once, in previous outfit posts. This tee is one of my favorites – oversized tee’s are a serious essential for every girl, in my opinion. They always sit perfectly on your body and if you’re short like me, you could totally get away with wearing them as a dress. With shorts underneath, of course. Wearing my tee’s as dresses is something new that I’ve been doing and I’m hooked. It’s the perfect way to flaunt my legs. TIP: Flaunt your favorite part of your body with no shame. Just make sure the rest of your outfit is proportionate. 

The shorts that I’m wearing are my high-rise shorties from American Eagle. The  pockets hang from them, which is a lovely touch because it shows that I am wearing shorts, without really having to show them.

I went a bit bracelet crazy; it’s been a while since I’ve done that. High School, I think? It’s a great way to add spice to any outfit & is the perfect touch of bohemian. TIP: To make it extra fun, mix colors, textures & materials. 

I threw on this floral kimono for an added layer. I love wearing outer pieces in general since I almost always wear shorter things on my bottom half. I like to ensure that the booty is properly covered.

Both of my necklaces are from my Etsy shop. I’ve worn this black Onyx necklace in almost every outfit post to date & to be honest, I don’t think I’m going to stop rocking it. I combined that necklace with my Quartz necklace because I needed it’s strength. I swear by these crystals – the Earth is made with so much energy & there’s no better way to obtain that energy than by surrounding yourself with Earth’s natural accessories.

For shoes, I went with my black Steve Madden lace-up booties because they’re the perfect everyday shoe. I’m always being blessed by the shoe gods, I swear.

I hope y’all are having the best week! I seriously can’t believe that we’re already into the second week of August. Am I the only one who feels like this summer just came and went so fast?
