I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! My V-Day outfit this year was another AMAZING Nordstrom Rack find. Not only on sale, but also 20% off. Thank goodness my boyfriend and I decided to stay in and make dinner this year, because there is no way I would have been able to wear this number in the outside cold. A gorgeous black Topshop romper with colorful birds and silver detailing. It is truly my new favorite article of clothing. Paired with Guess heels.

My favorite thing about clothing is the versatility. While we usually run to the store when we think we have nothing to wear, what we really should be doing is getting creative. You can make a piece look completely different depending on how you pair and style it. This is one of my day to night transition looks from the other day – keeping the striped black and pink skirt in both looks!
The left is an edgy yet work appropriate look. The skirt (Kohls) is worn over a pair of black tights (Nine West) with an acid wash button up (Pac Sun) and black vest (H&M) with black combat boots (TJ Maxx).
In order to dress the look up for a night out I added a pair of knee high socks (Urban Outfitters) and black buttoned heels (Burlington Coat Factory), complete with a graphic crop top (Pac Sun).
Two looks, for two different times of day! So next time you think you’ve run out of things to wear, try switching things up a bit! It’s a great way to test your creativity while keeping your money safely where it should be 😉

A week ago today I turned 22! And finally I am getting a chance to share my outfits from the week with you! Last Saturday, a birthday party was thrown at my apartment with my closest friends. The theme was black and white so only I was dressed in color – a maroon romper to be exact! I found the romper in Charlotte Russe and there was only a size large left, but I loved it so much I got it anyway – because if there is anything you can get away with in a bigger size it’s a romper.
Here is my the look from my Birthday party:
The two gold bands around the neck were part of the romper – an aspect I loved! Paired with gold jewelry and tan crochet wedges from Marshalls. See my birthday manicure and jewelry in last week’s Manicure Monday post!
On the day of my actual birthday, my best friends round up again for a fancy birthday dinner at an Italian restaurant called Mario’s. This time I was the one dressed in black and white, with straight hair and a polka dot three tiered dress – one of my favorite types of clothing.
I would say it was a birthday success! I ended up having a great week thanks to all of my wonderful friends! I love you all!
Cue the Taylor Swift lyrics…

At this point, reds and dark colors are perfectly complimented by my hair color, which makes it super easy to wear my favorite one – black. Not to mention I completely love these plaid harem pants that can be either dressed up or dressed down. Titled “Plaid Obsession” today’s look is very me.
Last weekend I moved into a new apartment that overlooks a beautiful courtyard. Outside of my old apartment, I had limited photo taking space, leaving me to take photos on a brick wall right outside my door. Now, I get to explore this gorgeous courtyard and try out new photo taking locations! And I must say, as a fashion blogger, you need to be just a leeeetle bit shameless during this trial and error period, as people are walking by and watching you snap photos of yourself – especially because the courtyard was rather busy! But regardless, it was really fun and there were some great locations. Here are the results:
This outfit is titled “Love Potion No. 9.” Why? Just check the shirt! (and that afro though… gotta love it) Can’t wait to keep playing around with the area!

Let’s talk earring cuffs. Now I know the trend emerged a few years ago, but with the increasing styles and different takes on the cuff – I would say this accessory is still in it’s time. Today I’m sharing with you some fun cuffs in a variety of styles at (mostly) reasonable prices! Ranging from a full ear cuff, to a simple wrap, to an elegant dangle to edgy feathers it’s all on this board.

Yesterday I got to attend my beautiful cousin Ariana’s wedding in Syracuse, NY. This was my first time attending a wedding as an “adult” and it was so much fun! It was absolutely beautiful and the weather was perfect. I wish I had snapped some photos of the actual ceremony to share with you, but you’ll have to take my word for it – the whole day was wonderful. Congrats to her and her new husband Jose! I don’t get to see that side of my family very often, but when I do, it is always a good time. Here is a photo of me and all my siblings dressed up:
And here is a closer look at my wedding outfit of the day 🙂
