OOTD – Creamy Cardigans

Another day, another outfit, am I right?

Just to make things a little more Boulder, Colorado themed, I even included the Flatirons infamously as the backdrop to my little photo shoot.

It was a fairly ordinary day, which required a fairly ordinary outfit that incorporated many basics, to create a basic, yet cute outfit.

The outfit included a t-shirt body suit, tucked into a pair of dark wash jeans. To layer over my t-shirt, I decided to throw a cream oversized cardigan, just to keep the comfy theme relevant.

An oversized cardigan is an essential in my closet, as you can pair it over so many things. Their use is so diverse.

My red Adidas Superstars were my shoe of choice. Once again, emphasizing the theme of comfort, casual and classic into my look.

  2. H&M Skinny Regular Ankle Jeans ($29.99)
  3. Adidas Superstar Original Fashion Sneaker ($80.00)
  4. Open Front Chunky Knit Sweater ($31.75)

My outfit screams underwhelming to a certain extent, but the colder weather seems to bring out some of my more basic outfits. I love to keep it casual, especially when it is chillier.

This is a great outfit to throw on when you are trying to stay comfy, without looking totally socially innapprorpiate in public.

Not to mention, I was comfy.

OOTD – Scarf Off, You Trench (Coat)

My outfit of the day today embodied the theme of staying warm, all while wearing something somewhat functional for a hike up to the Flatiron mountains. The weather was brisk to say the least, but the sunset was spectacular.

As trench coats have become my favorite style of jacket recently, and this taupe one particularly has become a staple, it was great at keeping me warm and fashion-forward.

My red, paisley neck scarf was something I had acquired ages ago, it has become not only a staple accessory of my closet, but serves as a constant reminder of how gorgeous the scarf it is itself. The neck scarf was the pop of color that I dedicated myself to, as I kept the rest of my outfit consistent to neutral colors. While I have always been a fan of neck scarves and support this trend, I never could find the right moment to utilize the neck scarf trend, as I thought I looked strange. After my first experience, I must say that I enjoyed the experience and will be experimenting with my neck scarf in many more outfits to come. The red, paisley neck scarf truly helped bring that extra spice and color that the outfit needed, otherwise, the outfit would have been a little too bland and a little too winter-y for my taste. The striking color of the neck scarf is eye-catching and is a great color for the Spring season.

I layered my taupe, or nude, vintage trench coat over a black oversized men’s sweater. Though my trench coat and my sweater are both oversized, I made sure to make sure that I was not drowning in my clothes. Baggy fits are great, but are also something that you need to watch out for, as you may not realize how much certain articles of clothing, especially together, may appear quite unflattering on you.

My pants followed my strictly all-black dress code that I usually follow. Naturally, I quickly slipped on my black distressed jeans, which also prevented the look from appearing to bland, old, boring, basic, and outdated.

My black combat boots also followed the all-black dress code that I usually follow. were utilized on this day out, as they helped keep the look more grungy, which more carefully matches my style. Not to mention, these combat boots were not a bad idea for a hike, as snow was still lingering on the trails.

They add a boyish, grungy aspect to this outfit. French braids were important to me, as I knew that I had to plan my hair style around my neck scarf.
The solution was simple for me, in order to keep my hair away from my face and out of my neck scarf, I braided two french braids into my hair.


While the day was beautiful, as pictured, the weather was much colder than it seemed. It was a good thing that I had decided to layer up.

  5. Forever 21 Faux Leather Combat Boots ($26.99)

My outfit is not quite as breathtaking as my backdrop, which are the Flatirons, located about 1.4 miles away from me. This winter, spring, summer and fall all have so many fun, experimental, out-of-the-ordinary trends that I am very excited to begin incorporating into my outfits.

As you begin transitioning back into the warmer weather, what are some of your favorite trends that you have been rocking recently?

OOTD – Velvetly Flarin’ Off Some Denim

My outfit of the day consisted on a very casual look, incorporating some of my all-time favorite trends, including a pair of black velvet pair of flowy pants – high-waisted, of course. I paired the high-waisted comfy-oriented cropped, flared, flowy pants, with a long sleeve crew-kneck crop top. Finally, to finalize the look I layered a cropped, light-wash distressed jacket over my crop top, to tie the look together and retain some heat. I sported one of my favorite pair of high-top, black platform sneakers, as we all know, platform shoes are some of my favorite trends forever. Platform shoes will forever hold a special place in my heart.

My is thrown into a pair of french braids, one of my favorite go-to hairstyles. It is simple and keeps your hair out of your face. Not to mention, it adds a little more spunk than a simple ponytail, or lazy day bun.

I was feeling a little lazy, however, so I accessorized my face with a pair of round glasses to maximize my vision.

Who needs handbags anymore? My mini black backpack was my choice of bag for the day, as I have become a big fan of the mini backpack look and trend. Plus, backpacks are much more pratical these days. Do not fret, you can still make mini backpacks look chic.

As we transition into Spring, we can begin breaking out some of our favorite Spring, or Summer, clothes into our outfits. Lately, I have been all about the 90s and love that it is currently reliving their fashion glory days. I can say with certainty that this outfit channeled multiple 90s trends that have made a comeback recently in streetwear.

This is a fairly casual, comfy outfit, and is nothing over the top. However, you can always spice up, or step up, your comfortable, lazy day outfit, with some statement pieces, such as a pair of platform shoes, a distressed denim jacket, or even with a pair of black velvet flared pants. While a denim jacket is super classic, it is a great statement piece to have in the back of your closet, as I would definitely consider it an essential for anyone’s wardrobe.

My outfit of the day velvetedly flared off some denim in a pair of platform sneakers, or in other words, blew off some denim [steam] with some velvet-y flare, all while wearing platform shoes.

Velvet, denim, and platform sneakers are tugging at my heart strings. What trends have been calling your name?

Life Hack #25 – Sweatpants, Hair Up, Chillin’ With No Makeup On

While sweatpants, hair up, chillin’ with no makeup on may not to be my most attractive look, I have learned over the course of my lifetime that you simply cannot dress and look your best every day. Whether you cried the night before, are exhausted, or are stressed, sometimes life gets to us, and therefore, does not allow us the desire and/or time to look our best, as we would rather be comfortable and work with what we got.

Our society places an emphasis on upkeeping your outward appearances, in order to capitalize on a societal norm that the more attractive you are, the more successful, approachable, accepted and happy you will be. These are myths, but our society is quite brutal when it comes to judging others based on what they look like on the outside.

As human beings, we may not even consciously realize that we judge strangers and others around us based on their outward appearance, but we all do it all the time. This does not leave much wiggle room for those who just enjoy dressing comfortably, even in public.

The belief that one must “change,” or “get ready,” to go out into public is overused and overemphasized. While dressing nicely, or how you feel, should be an activity that you enjoy and are doing for yourself, we all once again unconsciously find ourselves in the routine of fixing ourselves up prior to going out into public.

Disregarding the entire act of upkeeping your hygiene, or maintaining some sort of beauty routine, is not something I would recommend, however, when the upkeep becomes more than just a small routine, realize that, as a human being, you should feel comfortable every day.

Above anything else, you want to be happy and comfortable in your own skin, as well as the way you choose to present yourself on any given day.

Even the biggest celebrities you know have their off-days and more than you know. Not to mention, they have the assistance of a team of elite beauty assistances, trainers and a stylist to assist them in overcoming some of the insecurities and burdens that as “normal folk” seem to encounter, YET THEY STILL HAVE OFF DAYS, or days where they may not be dressed in the most fashion-forward outfits, or have a full face of makeup.

It is hard to face scrutiny for your personal appearance, even when you are dressed in what seems like our best outfit to date and are wearing a full face of makeup. If anything, it hurts worse to face scrutiny when you are dressed in what seems like a “best dressed” type outfit, and when you have a full face of makeup. At least when you haven’t exerted any energy towards your outward presentation, you are aware of the obvious fact that you do not care to essentially “try” to primp yourself, and therefore, you are less susceptible to feeling hurt from any backlash you may receive for simply choosing to place your energy and time towards other things.

Primping yourself can be a fun, feel-good activity, as you should put on makeup if you want to, or even cake it on IF YOU TRULY WANT TO. In addition, if you want to whip out a risqué, or trendy, or a feel good or fashion-forward outfit, then you should do so. I am in no way trying to downplay the notion that one should always at least attempt to do things that will help them feel good on the inside and outside when they are out in public, or if they are feeling down.

“Trying,” as the millennials call it, is not a bad thing all the time. If you may not be feeling your best, attempting to primp yourself out and “actually get ready,” or make yourself look good (to your own standards), can help uplift your spirits, worries, or stressors. If you cannot beat them, dress better than them.

When you begin placing too much energy towards the aspect of appearing to look your best, or present yourself in a pleasing manner, becomes a central priority in your life, above your career, friends, family, health, etc., it can truly become detrimental. Usually when your outward appearance becomes such a big concern, looking and feeling your best has probably become more focused on the way that others perceive you, rather than how you perceive yourself. Getting caught up in this kind of comparison, and placing this much energy towards your outward appearance in order to please others, should never be your priority, as you will find yourself in more problems than you can conceptualize. You should take care of yourself for yourself, and you should also look your best, inside and outside, for yourself.

Beyond this, it is incredibly important to address the notion that beauty is not defined by the way that you outwardly appear, dress, or beautify yourself when one is out in public. Even in sweatpants and no makeup, you are beautiful!

If your mind is blown, then you need to reread that last statement and realize you are just as beautiful when you are in sweatpants and have no makeup on. Though you may not feel like it, beauty, while it is somewhat measured by your outward appearance, is and should never be strictly defined by one’s outside.

Do not be so hard on yourself for appearing how you normally do when you are just chilling or hanging out at home, in the privacy and in the comfort of your home. While some circumstances, such as work, job interviews, formal occasions, may require one to adjust their outward appearances accordingly and may have a more formal dress code, do not let your days be filled with the anxiety and fear of not looking your absolute best.

At this point, we all want to accentuate features of ourselves that we enjoy and look nice for ourselves, and others to a certain extent, however, you cannot hide your TRUE self from others forever. At some point, your family will see you looking “not so shabby,” and likewise, so will strangers, friends, acquaintances, ex-lovers, boyfriends or girlfriends, professors etc. This is something that you will need to get used to in order to begin embracing yourself.

Speaking for myself, I have nailed the “no makeup” part, as I was never formally taught to do makeup and genuinely do not wear makeup daily, or ever. For some reason, makeup was never introduced to me, so as a result, even as a 22-year-old, it was never included in my primping routine. I focus more on the fashion, the hygiene, the health, and the hair side of looking my very best. Just like any other individual, I have taken my outward appearance too seriously unnecessarily and find myself beating myself up for not being my best, even if it meant outwardly.

Maintaining your very best is tiresome more often than not. However, not outwardly appearing your best out in public is a sort of initiation that every human being has to endure, in order to realize that beauty, especially in our own eyes and the eyes of others, can be found even within the most oversized sweatpants, within the most bare naked face, and within the slightest bit of fat on your body.

No one is born perfect – nope, not any aspect of a human is perfect. This applies to their outward appearance, as well.

When you find yourself over analyzing your looks and outward image, just realize that we are all human and that it is okay not to exert very much effort on your outward appearance when it is not necessary. Just like many things in life, you cannot win every battle, especially looking your very best. But, it never hurts to attempt to look your best during every battle, even if you lose. It truly may make you feel better.

Sometimes the pressure of life gets to you, and once again, that is quite alright This pressure may result in one neglecting their hygiene and personal appearance, in order to cope, to heal, etc. You can try to fight it as hard as you and fight the good fight, but do not end up fighting yourself over something as insignificant as your “outsides,” or outward appearance.

As the celebrities say, not every day can be a red carpet day.

Be human. Be comfortable. Be happy. Because, you are beautiful.

Your sweatpants, hoodies, leggings, oversized t-shirts, and baggy attire are beautiful.

Your natural beauty is unmatched.

Get comfortable with your “normal” self, or your essentially naked, or most raw, or most vulnerable self, by allowing yourself the freedom of “not trying very hard” when you are getting ready. Look at yourself in the mirror. Breathe.

You are still alive. You are still breathing. Most importantly, you are still beautiful.

You can never hide genuine beauty, as it always manages to find a way to seep out from nowhere.

At least if you are ugly on the outside, you can redeem yourself by being beautiful on the inside 🤙🏾 Just kidding!

All jokes aside, allow yourself to truly embrace the “chill” and “I am too lazy to care” life. Let your soul and your outsides radiate with all natural beauty. Begin loving a pale face, sweatpants, and a low-maintenance look. Try to embrace an all-natural and untouched look, because there is no reason anyone should ever feel like they should hide their most natural, their most comfortable, and their most naked self.

Do not forget every once in a while to go out of your way to celebrate and express yourself with your outward appearance. You deserve to treat yourself, even if it means spending a little more time in front of the mirror crafting your perfect look for your day.

Whether you decide to glam it up, or play it down, you are still beautiful to me 💝
Simply put, if you like it, or feel like it, wear it!

OOTD – Overall The Snow

Sun-days are fun-days, pun-intended! Any days filled with sun, especially during the winter season, should be taken advantage of.

Instead of bundling up in my regular drabby winter clothes, the 68 degree weather allowed me to dip my feet into my summer and spring clothes, incorporating winter trends in order to make sure I was warm.

On this sunny day in February, I paired my favorite vintage distressed overalls, layering a velvet black crop underneath and a pair of black tights with bow detailing to keep my legs warm. Layering tights underneath your shorts is a great way to incorporate your shorts and skirts into your winter wardrobe. You can never go wrong with tights – they are a great staple to keep around your closet.

I did a little bit more layering by pairing the overalls with a fluffy white cardigan. To complete the look, I wore a pair of baby pink platform sneakers to add a little color and spunk into my outfit.

OOTD – Jumpsuitin’ With My Sweater On

|February 6, 2018|

My outfit for the day consisted of five of my all-time favorite trends, including velvet, jumpsuits, floral patterns, oversized knit sweaters, and high-top sneakers. Some velvet, some jumpsuits, some florals, some oversized sweaters, and some high-top sneakers never hurt anyone.

Winter is the season of layering, and in order to find warmth within your closet, reusing clothes from other seasons and layering them strategically underneath, or on top of, each other is necessary skill.
This allows you to experiment with different trends from different seasons, as you combine these contradictory trends into an outfit.

Today, I felt like wearing a velvet jumpsuit, however, the cold weather just did not agree with the velvet jumpsuit. Choosing to layer a cream-colored oversized knit sweater underneath my jumpsuit seemed like the only solution in order to retain any warmth, during this chilly February day. Despite a jumpsuits’ overall lack of ability to keep one warm from the cold chills of winter, they can easily be integrated into your winter wardrobe, as they often serve as great layering pieces.

My jumpsuit flirted directly with the cream colored oversized knit sweater, as I attempted to protect myself from the cold. This winter get in touch with experimenting with white-based colors, as white and off-white colors are great statement colors for the winter. Oversized-knit sweaters are some of the most versatile garments, as you can layer with them to endless extremes. Just about every outfit I wear during the winter season seems to incorporate an oversized knit sweater, quickly becoming a staple in my winter wardrobe.


The floral pattern of the velvet jumpsuit gave my outfit a “girlier” look, while still allowing me to remain true to my darker colors and style. The patterns are gorgeous and added a rather eye-catching element to an otherwise basic velvet jumpsuit, essentially taking it to the next level. The dark florals compliment the winter season perfectly, just like they compliment my personality.


My black, very dirty, and considerably destroyed, high-top Vans sneakers were utilized to finish off my look. While you can never, ever go wrong with pairing black with more black, the sneakers made the outfit seemingly appear to be comfortable, fashionable, and laidback, while giving the outfit a grungier appeal, which in turn completely contrasts the girliness of the jumpsuit.
While I chose a fairly comfortable and very casual pair of shoes to complete my outfit, this outfit allows for a lot of space for variety, especially when it comes to choice of shoes. One can dress this outfit down, or even dress this outfit up, just with a pair of shoes. Ankle booties are a great option for those looking to take your sweater and your jumpsuit out on a night-in-town.

Don’t worry about packing up all your summer attire, instead just worry about integrating some of your summer clothes into your winter wardrobe. Mix ‘n match seasonal trends with classic trends, to maximize the use of all your clothes year-round. This way your clothes never actually die, or get buried in a grave temporarily, as utilizing these clothes during their “off-seasons” keeps them alive and relevant.

Dress like an onion this winter and incorporate as many layers as you possibly can. You may find yourself smiling more and more, during the coldest and most bitter times of the year.

How do you keep your summer clothes alive year-round? What are your winter wardrobe essentials?

ο Stay warm, stay bundled, stay happy, and stay layered ο

OOTD – Low-Key Cute But Psycho

What a beautiful February afternoon! The sun is shining and I am just enjoying all the Vitamin D that this winter has to offer. 13378dab-137f-43ce-b5e1-321786e6b638

Taking full advantage of this beautiful afternoon and a half-day at work meant embracing the act of relaxation by becoming the definition of comfort. I am basically “sweatpants on, chillin’ with no make-up on,” it is as if Drake rapping about me.

My top-knot bun was in full swing, so I even let my hair be comfortable.

“Cute But Psycho,” my graphic crop top states, whether or not this is true, is up to you. Graphic tees are making a huge comeback in the fashion-industry, as they can be a fun way to spruce up and add another element to your otherwise top.

I paired my controversial graphic crop top, with a fluffy/fuzzy cardigan and a pair of black velvet leggings.

The best part of this outfit is that the fabrics of all the garments I am wearing are cozy and comfortable. Velvet, fuzzy cardigans, and comfy t-shirts all involve textures that enforce a sense of warmth, as well as reinforcing the importance of the textures of the garments to ensure ultimate comfortability.
The fuzzy cardigan truly hits the spot, almost acting as a cloud of comfort to wrap my entire body around. Not to mention, this furry goodness has pockets. I cannot ask for anything else.

I casually hung out among the dead grass and dead leaves.

No shoes were involved in the creation of this outfit.
Not every outfit I wear every day is fashion-forward, or by any means cute. But, as long as I feel comfortable and cozy in what I am wearing, you can ensure that I will be happy and pleasant.


While most OOTD’s consist of brilliantly put together ensembles, I kept it casual and comfortable today with my look. It is what I would refer to as a “keepin’ it simple.”

This is somewhat a replica of my usual lounging, day-to-day look that you can find me rockin’ all year long, especially on those days that you become apart of your bed or couch.

Shop My Look

  1. Cute But Psycho Crop Top – Ragstock (SOLD OUT!)
  2. Crushed Velvet Leggings/Black – Forever 21 ($9.90)
  3. Snow Drift Cardigan – Rip Curl ($74.00)

From the cutest but most psycho chick around – dress comfortable, so you can breathe comfortably.
