Floral Dress + Black Wig at Holiday Park

Sometimes it’s amazing how one little thing can change your look so much and that’s exactly how I feel with this outfit! It was a whole lot of fun playing “dress up with such a different look! While I did do a little bit different with my makeup (mostly just a heavier hand and darker) that was really just to keep from being completely over powered by the wig. So here are a few photos from the day! Oh and if you think this area looks familiar that might be because you’ve seen another #ootd with this backdrop, High Low Dress in the Rain. Although these photos were actually taken WAY before those, both at Holiday Park, I kind of misplaced this set for awhile.  It’s too bad because that day we were actually able to spend a little bit of time at the park on the trails, even making it back to the stream towards the back. For my outfit I’m wearing a simple dress that came from Amazon. I think it was only like …

High Low Dress in the Rain

Time for an outfit post! A little over a week ago I ordered this dress pretty much site unseen. Since Amazon (where it came from) has free returns I figured it wouldn’t be any big deal if I didn’t like it but when I tried it on I loved it. So of course my friend and I went out to immediately take photos in it. Unfortunately it started raining just after we arrived so we didn’t get too many photos.  Dress – While I absolutely love this dress (I think the brand is Shein) I do wish that I’d ordered a sized down. I like the loose fit but I’m afraid it is a little too loose, and almost feel like I should wear something underneath it. The high low is so pretty and easy to wear but my favorite is the yellow flowers embroidered all over it. Shoes – Every blogger is talking about the Nordstrom Sale (with all their reward style links) and while I’ve found it completely annoying I’ll admit I did …

Instagram Model Summer Outfit + Makeup Inspiration

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared outfit inspiration and I’ve really been wanting to bring back this section of posts so here I am today with one. For this look I thought it would be fun to do an update on a popular post the Instagram Model Outfit Inspiration (seen at The Instagram Yogi, Outfit Inspiration and Outfit: Instagram “Model” Off Duty Look ) and do a look especially for this summer with an outfit and makeup included. Top – Every summer I seem to be attracted to feminine details on my shirts and this one is no different. I love that this is a square shaped crop top and the eyelet design is so pretty. Jeans – It might seem surprising but I’ve seen way more pairs of jeans than shorts this summer. I’m pretty sure it has something to do with being more able to achieve the curvy figure in jeans but I can say I don’t mind it. Light pairs are being favored, especially with dark tops, and high waisted skinny jeans are still the way …

Summer Style Modest Outfit + Makeup

So far my summer hasn’t gone exactly according to plan I have gotten some things done that I originally had wanted to do, so it isn’t all bad. One thing that hasn’t been getting done seems to be blog posts but here I am! Because the last outfit guide I did for summer (called Cool (+Modest) Summer Outfit and Makeup Inspiration ) was so popular I thought it might be fun to continue that and share more outfit and makeup inspiration for summer with a modest twist. So first up is the outfit. While it has been a little hot for an outfit like this I tried to make an outfit that could at least stand some of the heat even if it’s completely covered. More importantly though I was looking for styles and trends that are hot this summer that are doable for a more conservative look. Tank – Pineapple anything is so in this year that of course I needed to add a printed tank to this outfit. I was pretty lucky to find a …

Floral + Lace Dress With Denim, Outfit

While lately I’ve been doing more outfit posts this one is a bit of a throwback. The photos were taken back on Palm Sunday for Instagram, and I promptly edited them and sent one off to the company that sent me the dress I’m wearing. However the company took forever to get back to me for the Instagram post so the photos just kind of sat around. Well yesterday the photo was finally approved so I figured I could share a few of my favorites here Dress – I love this dress even if it is a little more beach wear than street wear I found it easy to pair and make into more of my style. The lace top is gorgeous and it has straps in the back that can be worn multiple ways. What I really love is the loose flowing skirt. Jacket – For this outfit while I really liked the dress I did think it was a little revealing for me, so I decided to pair it with a denim jacket …

Cool (+Modest) Summer Outfit and Makeup Inspiration

As you know I get a lot of my fashion inspiration from what I see on the street as well as some of what I see on Instagram and celebrities (minus the Met Gala this year) but a lot of times these trends aren’t exactly modest, or practical for a normal life. So I decided to wrap together a few and create a cool summer look that combines some popular trends and makes it into a modest wearable look. Top – I’m not sure if you got it (probably not) but I tried to make a pun calling this a cool summer outfit because this is a cold shoulder top. The last off the shoulder piece I shared in an outfit post (Gingham Dress, 2 Ways Gothic + Girly ) was popular, so I thought I could branch out a little and go with an asymmetrical one. I love the ruffles and  buttons that give it a feminine look in addition to being unique. *For an even more modest look you can wear a white turtle …

Outfit: On Cincinnati Bridges

Now that I have a little break from school, I’ve got a bit of free time. Not as much as I’d like because of some testing I have to do this summer and a few other things I didn’t expect to come up, but I can have a little bit of time to do something fun. One of those things was going with my friend to Cincinnati. We’d originally went because of a few bird supply stores, and breeders in the area we wanted to check out, but even though I’d found what I needed the week before we decided to go anyways. Our trip started with a trip to Ikea (I bought baby cactuses), Jungle Jim’s Grocery (which isn’t worth the hype if you aren’t into alcohol), and then lunch at a Mediterranean restaurant. By that time we were really hungry and over ordered but the food was actually fantastic. From there we went to downtown Cincinnati. My friend had originally found parking close to a park we wanted to take pictures in but …

Why I’m all in on Turbans

*Giveaway at bottom of post  Since the 1930’s scarves on top of heads haven’t really been a thing (except for a short lived 1970’s trend), unless you’re orthodox Christian, or Muslim. However I’ve been noticing a slow change in this to more women embracing wearing a variety of head coverings and let me tell you I’m loving it. While it has been associated strongly with the more modest wear, not that it is a bad thing, that isn’t always the case. What is almost always the case is the feminine and glamours look all of the different styles look, on a variety of women. While I appreciate a variety of the head scarf styles I’ve just over the moon with one particular option, the turban. Little did I know when I first started admiring them that while they did originate in the Middle East (Persia)  they have been worn all over Europe in various degrees of popularity for over a thousand years. Looking through some old family albums there is actually a few photos of …

Spring Date Night Outfit + Makeup Inspiration

*Giveaway at bottom of post* I’m pretty sure the first day of spring was quite awhile ago but with such a busy semester I’ve barely had time to look up. However all of that is going to be changing very soon, because finals are this week, and then I’ll be done. Instead of completely disappearing until all of those are over though I wanted to share some Spring date Night outfit and Makeup inspiration. Dress – Starting with the dress, which is very similar to one I own. I love the structured design (super flattering) on the top and then the looser skirt. The cut out in the chest and sweetheart neckline flow together really well. This was originally a prom dress but I think works really well as an evening dress. Bag – Clutches are my go to as far bags because I can’t stand carrying heavy purses. The envelope design has been around for awhile and is a great no frills option. Of course I went with the blush color. Shoes – These …

Outfit: Ruffled + Striped with Jeans

This semester has been crazy, but luckily it’s almost over. I still have no idea what I’m doing. I’m completely unsure of what I want to do when I get out which might be even more stressful than my classes. Regardless of what I do I’m going to have a little bit of a break which is for sure needed. Until the end of the semester I can’t guarantee regular posts but I do have one to share today. So here it is my #ootd. I wasn’t originally going to share it but after wearing it and getting a ton of compliments on the shirt I though I could take a few outfit photos. Shirt – I actually got this blouse off of amazon, and when I saw it I wasn’t sure how I felt about it, but as soon as I put it on I loved it. Not only does it have a lot of fun details but it’s super comfortable and modest. Jeans – Like a lot of my outfits I went with …
