In spirit of the holiday season, my town hosts a Winter Market in the park every year. This year was super fun because I got to go with some of my best friends, unlike last year where I walked around all alone. We had a great time so keep reading for more!

This outfit is so simple, but I love it. I got the bodysuit during the end of season sale, but you can find it here (not that color though). My skirt is the basic dark wash indigo circle skirt. My shoes are the clear jelly flats, which I wore all the time to work this summer. And of course, you can't forget to add a scrunchie! Mine is the houndstooth one.
I've gotten so many compliments on this one! And I'm obsessed with wearing it! I also crimped my hair that day and I just love how it looks. Again, I'm wearing my jelly flats, and sporting a gold scrunchie around my wrist. My skirt is this plaid circle skirt (it's the first thing I bought when I got the job because I wanted it so badly! Amazing purchase!). And my top is a basic cropped sweater which you can find here.
Now, this is the outfit I've just been dying to show everyone! Remember my "Monochrome + Sam Smith?" post? Well here's the outfit! I got it! The details on the dress are in my previous post, but I bought the shoes that day! They are black jelly heels and they are all I ever wear to work now. I love them so much, they look great with socks too!
This outfit is so cute, but casual too! I'm obsessed with the tie up blouses, especially this one with it's funky flowers and colors! And my Easy Jeans... *sigh* if you have not tried a pair on yet, then I suggest you do. They are the most comfortable jeans ever and I'm not just saying that because I work at AA. If I didn't have an employee discount, I'd still pay full price for them, and that's actually saying a lot, because if you know me, you know I'm pretty cheap.
I'm super into monochrome right now if you haven't noticed. Around my wrist I've got my deadstock vintage watch. It's a digital too, which makes me happy because reading analog clocks is a pain. My top is just the basic white sleeveless crop top. I've had to wash it too many times already because I wear it so often. I just got the skirt last week and I've already worn it 3 times! It's not full length, but it almost is. It has buttons down the front, and giant pockets which is very convenient for holding lipstick. The other day I had a ton of cough drops in them because I was struggling with the sick life. Ugh. At least I'm feeling better now!
So that's it for now! I'll have more outfits to show very very soon. Thanks for reading!

I've check the mail for the past 7 days, waiting, hoping they'd be sitting there. Today was that day, my friends, that the little silver ASOS package was sitting at my doorstep.
These booties are by London Rebel, bought on ASOS.com. Get this, they were 60% off! So they were only $40! A steal, right? I got an email from ASOS about a week or so ago about the one-day sale and I pulled out my credit card as quick as possible when I found these.
Mine are a US size 9. They are a bit roomie, but if I would've gotten them a size smaller, they'd have probably been a little tight. Plus, I'll end up wearing thick socks with them, so it's all good.
Check out these cute boots here, or shop just shop ASOS shoes in general! They carry quality products and I'm not lying when I say I'm totally obsessed with the brand. Working for them in their marketing department or something along those lines is basically my dream job. No joke.

The big question: why is "natural" scolded in society? Why is it not acceptable to cry in public? Why is it not okay to go out without a stitch of makeup? Why can't a singer sing without it being auto-tuned and edited? The list goes on and on...
In this picture I have zero amounts of makeup on. The day this was taken, I was crying all day. My friend wanted me to take photos of her so I was like "Ok, I need to get out of the house."
At the end, she ended up taking a few photos of me. I didn't know how I'd look... No makeup, my hair up in a pony tail. But of course, I was wearing my American Apparel easy jeans... so hey, I felt somewhat good about my appearance.
I didn't think much of the pictures. We walked around town a little, had an impromptu meet-up with some friends at the restaurant everyone hangs out at in town. But during the whole thing, I felt a bit insecure. Like I'm sitting there, everyone around, wearing a cute outfit but having two hormone-induced pimples on my cheeks. Did I look bad? Did I look ugly?
Then, when I got home, I saw the pictures. And I realized natural beauty should be embraced. You're not always going to like what you see, but take a look in the mirror every morning before you wash your face, brush your hair, put on makeup, and tell yourself you're beautiful... because it's true: you are.
Don't care so much about what other people think. This life is for you, nobody else.
Be yourself because I guarantee there will be at least 1 or 2 people (if not more!) that really love the real you.
Try it: walk around without makeup and feel amazing. It'll take a while to get there, but it's something that could change your outlook and ultimately your life.
Thank you for reading,

I instantly fell in love with this because:
1) I love vintage looks
2) It's monochrome and that's so in right now, not to mention I just love love love the trend.
3) It reminds me of a shirt/dress/pattern we sell at American Apparel.
4) Sam Smith actually wears the AA shirt with that pattern in his Leave Your Lover music video.
The shirt the girl is wearing and the American Apparel one are pretty similar. From these inspirations, I'm going to create my own spin on it.
First off, this AA spaghetti strap baby doll dress is perfect. Every time I walk past it in the store, I want it. I'll most likely be buying it very soon, unless something else new catches my eye.

As some of you might know, I'm in love with Cher Horowitz style in the movie "Clueless". She rocks a plaid skirt almost all the time, especially when she wears this iconic outfit:
So the other day for work, I channeled my inner Cher. This was the result:
Let me know what you think!
Here's some inspiration to create your own Clueless outfit!
