NYFW S/S 19 RUNWAY FAVS

This New York fashion week I looked more for standout outfits than shows, those outfits that I’d die to wear or want to recreate. As fashion gets even more fast paced I looked to five outfits from different designers that I just loved because of the way they were styled, or the material, or just the plain fact that it was a cute outfit. So below in no particular order are my 5 faves from S/S 19, well kind-of, one is actually F/W18.

AMSTERDAM | NETHERLANDS

My second to last stop in Europe before heading home was Amsterdam. My friends and I stopped here for five days after Marrakech. When we arrived we ubered to our hotel (Budget Hotel Tourist Inn) in the downtown area of Amsterdam. Amsterdam was by far the most expensive hotel we paid for during our time in Europe and it was the size of a closet. I would recommend this hotel though since we were able to stay in the city and it was clean. We did have to carry all or our luggage up two flights of stairs on the tinniest staircase, which is apparently pretty common in Amsterdam since the buildings are so small and tall.

Friday Fashion Finds | March 9

When I started this blog back in August for school I didn’t really know how to bring fashion into the blog in a way that would be interesting for the people who read my blog, but after listening to some of my readers I thought it would be a cool idea to share my looks with you including links to different priced, similar options available for purchase. Every Friday I’ll share a new look with shop-able links below called Friday Fashion Finds!

Venice | Italy

Last month my friends and I went on a day trip to Venice for the second day of Carnival. Each year Carnival has a new theme and this year the theme was, “Creatum: Civitas Ludens” which translates to, “Creativity: City of Sport.” The carnival runs every year for two weeks ending on Fat Tuesday. The highlight of going on day two was watching the water parade and getting to sample free food from the town (given out during the parade) including a bean pasta soup and sandwiches. The parade featured fun floats as well as political ones; this year included a Trump float with a sign reading, “mine is bigger than yours” and a nuclear button in front of a Trump doll.

THAT’S SO 70’S | CROCHET GRANNY SQUARES

Ciao babes!! Finally adjusting to life in Italy – a little bit. I don’t think I would every fully adjust to every aspect of living in another country, but I’m enjoying the short stay. Today we went to Pitti Immagine in Florence where the theme this season was fashion meets film. The exhibit this weekend was all about yarn including a room full of ways to use yarn with the upcoming S/S 2019 trends. We went from there to Vintage Selection, a room of vendors selling vintage clothes, shoes, bags, sunglasses, etc.

BOLOGNA | ITALY

I finally arrived in Florence last Thursday for my semester abroad, the best possible start to 2018. I’m so excited to spend the next 6 months traveling through Europe with my friends. We went on our first trip Sunday to Bologna, a little Italian town outside of Florence. We walked around the town, got cappuccino’s and shopped at & Other Stories. To get a little look into what we saw check out the video below!

COLLAB | CASEAPP

A few weeks ago I was approached to try out the Swedish company, Caseapp and write an honest review of the products. I was given a free phone case as well as laptop skin and both products I received are awesome. I created my own custom iPhone case and chose a pre-made laptop skin. They both turned out to be great products with beautiful prints that are very well made.

Now you may be wondering how to pull off this trend, where to buy a shearling moto jacket, or just wondering what moto means? Fear not because I’m going to break it all down for you step by step below.
