Destination New York | OOTD Video

Happy Tuesday:

It’s my last day in New York City!

What better way to spend my last day then with an NYC themed OOTD video. This one was filmed by one of my good friends, Kendrin; also known as Koid24 on Instagram. Filming is his thing and I am so happy we manage to get a little collaboration video in before I left permanently.

The vision was most definitely in sync: I couldn’t be happier with the end result.

Kae and I were treated to a lil’ bowling date by Kendrin & his bae a few weeks ago. Just sit back, relax, and relive a NYC night with me.

Thank you so much for stopping by & watching!

Mad love, forever & always.

Happy Friday:

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.

Bag: Brandy Melville.

Necklace: DeadGypsy & Co. ; Earrings: Thrifted ; Headscarf: Local Store.

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!

Embracing Me. | Bald Beauty.

Happy Monday:

On the 28th of this month, I officially hit my 5th month anniversary of being a Baldie. I won’t ever get over how fast time flies – as I’m getting older, I feel like my days are getting shorter and shorter. Am I the only one?

To celebrate, I decided to dedicate a post completely to my bald head. I’m here today to prove that being bald is beautiful and being CONFIDENT as a Baldie is totally possible. The past 5 months have been filled with constant life changes, but one life change has proven to be the best one yet – embracing the real me.

Happy Wednesday beauts!

pic7Today’s outfit post is a bit random – I won’t lie. That’s because the original outfit I was planning on posting today didn’t work out how it was supposed too. NOTE TO SELF: Take photos during daylight hours.

Darien & I didn’t have time to go to our usual spot, so we opt for a mini photoshoot in our backyard. It’s my go to location whenever I film OOTD’s & Lookbooks. This will be our go to spot whenever life get’s too real & we can’t go to our PLAN A spot. The life of being a parent is very unexpected.

Outfit Deets:

This outfit was inspired by the chill, urban vibes of my beloved Brooklyn. Even though I am a momma, I can’t deny that I do enjoy rocking school girl, sporty/skater type looks. My love for sporty street wear definitely appeared in my fashion radar a few years back, when Darien and I got together. When you’re with someone all of the time, you can’t help but be influenced by their presence. TIP: Find inspiration in everyone you know.

My love for 5 panels is definitely one of the things I gained from being with Darien. It’s all he ever wears. I always thought girls who rocked these type of hats were super cool, but I was always insecure about how I would look in them. Once I grew the guts to not care about what people thought of me or how I looked, I started rocking them all the time, with no shame. This hat is my first 5 panel, and I won’t ever get rid of it. The floral print screams Glendaly & the brim is a beautiful suede. Such a dope piece. TIP: Don’t be afraid to rock that killer piece of clothing. Tell yourself you will look bomb & trust me, YOU WILL LOOK BOMB.

This boyfriend tee is literally one of my favorites. I recommend every girl picking up at least one – it literally falls on the body perfectly. Perfectly slouchy, perfectly oversized, perfectly perfect. This is one of those pieces where I’d suggest spending a few more bucks on – quality is always better than quantity. I will preach this until the end of time.

Notice that I wore this tee in last weeks outfit post? TIP: A piece you can wear more ways that one, two or thirty times, is a piece worth investing in.

This is literally the first time I wore this skirt & I’ve had it for over 2 years. It fits perfect, is a beautiful a-line shape and makes me feel super cute. But the bad thing about it? It’s white. I never wear white bottoms, so it’s really hard for me to style this piece. I do plan on dying it black, though. I’m confident I’d wear it weekly once I do. TIP: Recycle old clothing. It’s a great way to make old pieces feel fresh.

pic6I wore my Steve Madden nude booties because I though it’d match my hat better than my black pair, but I was a little nervous about my bottom half being to light. To add a block between the white skirt & nude shoes, I decided to rock these socks from Target. Awesome enough, it has white, nude, and black which I feel added a cool touch to the entire ensemble.

This American Eagle Aztec Print mini backpack was my bag choice because I wanted this look to have a super cool, laid back vibe.

My shades are my current obsession – I wear these all of the time with almost every outfit.

The jewelry is kept super simple; my top necklace is a DeadGypsie original & my longer one was a gift from my mother-in-law; my Sun God from Puerto Rico.
