missing sunny days

I didn't go to the beach today, but I dressed like I did. Some people might not consider this beach appropriate, but I don't go swimming most of the time. I prefer to lounge around on the sand and read a book! I kind of looked like I was dressed for Independence Day 😂 A…

A cloudy day: OOTD

It's been pretty gloomy in South Florida lately, with lots of cloudy and rainy days. I don't mind the rain that much because I tend to stay home most of the time anyway! I'm not working at the moment, so I've been taking advantage of my free time to read, knit, and watch those movies…

A sunny spring day: OOTD

I finally thrifted the perfect blue jeans! I am so excited to show you guys this pair. They fit nice and snug on my waist so I don't have to pull them up too often, and they're very loose and straight in the legs. I've been looking for something like this for months. I paired…

OOTD: Esmeralda Edition

My brother and sister called me Esmeralda today (as in the Hunchback of Notre Dame lady). They almost always have snarky comments about my outfits. Usually they're something along the lines of "Hey, grandma's home!", or "You look like [insert cartoon character/BTS member here]." I find it funny most of the time... Emphasis on most.…

On Caring Less

I often get comments from well-meaning family members about how the way I dressed and styled my hair in the past looked more flattering than the way I do now. It irks me to no end when they say that, because I am in a much better place now when it comes to my self-esteem…

89 Degrees

My computer overheated. The amount of oil on my face could cook a KFC family dinner. MY FEET ARE SWEATING, PEOPLE. It's 89 degrees outside today, and I almost didn't go out to take these photos. I have a bit of an issue. I only have one pair of shorts that actually fit me, and…

Clip on Earrings and “Painted” Shorts

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I got a lot of work done in my printmaking class, and I managed to develop some film in the photography studio. Plus I had an awesome burrito from a place called Cantina Grill (free of cost, thanks to my friend Shannon!) This was the outfit that I wore: a…

My Favorite Etsy Shops

I love Etsy. I LOVE Etsy. I go on Etsy every day. (P.S. That was an Oprah reference. #Bye) I usually don't mind browsing through pages and pages to find the perfect item. But, when I'm feeling lazy I can definitely count on the following shops to find great items: Myron Street Vintage I don't know…

OOTD- 3/10/16

My camera is officially useless! I've had the same Nikon point and shoot for about three years now, and it's been giving me issues for months. It randomly overexposes shots, and it doesn't really focus that well most of the time, hence the grainy photos below.  Let's pretend I was going for that aesthetic ;)…
