August Focus: Intentions

My focus for this August will be to accomplish the goals I have set for myself. Setting my intentions on what I want to achieve this upcoming fall.  I am job hunting, detoxing my mind and my body, and being intentional in all that I do. I recently purchased the book “Whole Beauty” by Shiva Rose. The book talks a lot about daily routines and how people tend to rush through their morning or nighttime routines, these routines can easily be turned into daily rituals that promote self-love and self-care. Throughout this month I would love to practice creating these daily rituals that strengthen my mind, body, and soul. I am starting out August with a fresh mindset and will continue to practice good and positive intentions in all that I do.

The first goal I have set for myself is a 10 day detox:

No sugar, dairy, grains, or alcohol.

Three Ways to Style Yellow Shoes.

Yellow has always been a color that I have liked, mostly because it is just a happy color. This spring season I have been loving yellow as a pop color!! I bought some yellow sandals from Forever 21 for just $25! At first, a statement piece like yellow shoes seemed hard to style but here are three ways that I styled these shoes that totally changed up the way the shoes looked.

  1. Easter Sunday look: For this look I paired the yellow shoes with a white floral mini dress, perfect for Easter brunch!
  2. Casual lunch/dinner look: I paired the shoes with black jeans and a white polka dot off the shoulder crop.
  3. Date night look: For this look I paired the yellow shoes with some of my favorite flow-y striped pants and a black crop top with a jean jacket. It was a great outfit for watching the sunset and dinner.

April Focus: Change

I have seen many brands and blogs embrace something specific each month and I began to do this in my own life as well. I have been thinking about what I want my focus to be this April and came across some inspiration from College Fashionista. I decided to use their focus as my own. Change. So many people are afraid of change including myself. I tend to fall into patterns that feel comfortable and feel safe staying there.  This month I am challenging myself (and you all) to embrace the change this season.

With graduation right around the corner I am getting ready to start a new chapter in my life. I refuse to let myself be afraid of the unknown future and this month I am going to create new positive habits that I will be able to carry into the rest of the year. I think that it is so important to constantly be bettering yourself, whatever that might look like. I am going to take this Spring season of rebirth and make it an opportunity to grow physically and mentally.

Instead of freaking out, embrace these moments to turn all those dreams and little “somedays” into “todays.” Explore a new activity. Shed your fear and bust out of your proverbial shell. Make plans for the future. Grow and blossom.



Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.

-Rachel Zoe

Fashion and clothing are two things that have been important to me for as long as I can remember. I have loved shopping, styling, and researching new trends ever since I was a young girl. I am constantly looking for new inpsiration and updating my style. I think it is imperative to maintain a personal style that allows you to stand out and truly represents who you are. Your style and how you carry yourself are a part of the first impressions you make on someone.
