AP Exams & Gray Dresses

So we have found out that I am a better YouTuber than I am blogger. I’m sorry for not posting like I should, but I’m not going to lie and say that I’ll post more. I’m in a rough patch (? I don’t know if that’s the right phrase), I just have some lost motivation and school is killing me (what’s new?). Oh and did I mention, I’m not getting out of school until June 26th? Yeah, all those snow days I enjoyed came to bite me in the butt.

I finished all my AP exams, granted I only had two (APUSH and AP Lang). There weren’t hard just 6 hours and 30 minutes of my life gone to testing at 8 am (each test is 3 hours and 15 minutes). The time restraints were truly what stressed me out and all the last-minute test prep we did in class. I’m just so glad that they’re over.

I love this dress and I have gotten tons of compliments on it. I also have it in a pale pink. The dress is great for summer and my mom actually got it for me at Ross. When it comes to summer, I begin to wear dresses more often because it is definitely too hot to function. Any who, how are you guys doing?

Xx,

Turquoise Jacket & the Little Black Dress

The Little Black Dress appears for a third time! Simple and elegant. The style opportunities are endless! For me, LBDs are a staple piece in my wardrobe and they can be used for such much more than funerals. I dare you to use your LBD more often than you do, you won’t regret it.

Truth be told, I have had this coat for YEARS. I’m currently sixteen, but I think I’ve had this coat since I was like eleven. This was my first official trench coat. It has been with me all throughout the years and has been branded has my “fancy” coat that I wear to church and parties (but then I got my orange trench coat which took the “fancy” title). The coolest thing about this coat is the golden-yellow lining, which is an amazing contrast with turquoise and is a fun pop of color.

The heels definitely make this outfit what it is. Any other shoes wouldn’t look right at all. Certain outfits are MADE for heels. I feel powerful in this look. Yes, it’s simple. Yes, it’s only two colors. But, to me? I feel like I’m on my way to rule the world.

the Little Black Dress & a Side of Bling

The Little Black Dress. A staple in every female’s wardrobe, one that simply cannot be lived without. I happen to have at least three LBDs and I honestly could have more than I know. This particular LBD has appeared on Jersey Fabulous before in my Madden Girl Boots post. Fun fact about this LBD: I got it on sale at Charlotte Russe for $5. It was such a steal when I bought it about a year ago! And I’m still wearing it!

I’m honestly super obsessed with bombers, so when my mom had told me last fall that she got me one, I was so excited. Had my mom finally begun to understand my style? Than I so that it was gold AND silver. I was hesitant about it, I like gold and silver separately not together. However, I told her that I would try to make it work and I haven’t regretted my decision to keep it. This bomber has become my favorite piece of bling!

The bomber has turned such a simple and iconic Little Black Dress into a FIT that is worthy of the likes of a Hollywood after party. Though I have yet to try the bomber with a color other than black, I like the different vibes that it gives my various LBDs when I through it on. These are my favorite types of looks. The quick and easy ones that make A STATEMENT without no effort at all. Who knew that some bling could a Little Black Dress to the next level?

Outfit Ideas for Traveling | #7DaysofJo

Hi lovebugs! It’s day six of #7DaysofJo. I know that personally I have a hard time picking out what to wear. Sometimes I just don’t have a clue at all and I decided that maybe I should help other girls like me with a mini outfit ideas series. The third and last in this mini series is outfit ideas for traveling! I hope I inspire some of you.

Outfit #1

img_9812img_9851img_9796img_9870

This outfit is something new that I wanted to try and I honestly thought this made the one of the best traveling outfits. I’m wearing leggings which are always a travel must for me. I have my Nike Women’s Tanjun, which I now wear almost ll the time. I’m back again with a basic t-shirt, but now it has a pop of color. I have as a jacket, a soft denim jacket. The material looks and feels like denim but it was way softer and loose. This was also thrifted and a great find.

Outfit #2

Another leggings look. This is my most basic and go to travel look. Sweatshirt and leggings. Nothing is more iconic than this very simple and super comfortable look. As a lover of sweatshirts and being cozy, this look will always be the one for me. There is nothing left to say.

Outfit #3

MORE LEGGINGS! This outfit by far is the must stylish. I have been obsessed with the all black and a colored bomber look. The look ends up seeming more put together than it actually is and you never lose an ounce of comfort. If I wasn’t travelling, I would’ve worn hiking boots or even a more stylish sneaker. The simplicity of the outfit is what makes it stand out. Plus black is an attractive color on all body types, only complimenting the right parts. For traveling, comfort is key.

Outfit Ideas for School | #7DaysofJo

Hi lovebugs! It’s day four of #7DaysofJo. I know that personally I have a hard time picking out what to wear. Sometimes I just don’t have a clue at all and I decided that maybe I should help other girls like me with a mini outfit ideas series. The second in this mini series is outfit ideas for school! I hope I inspire some of you.

Outfit #1

img_9697img_9730img_9687img_9680

This is your basic “I’m trying to try” outfit. I love this sleeveless cardigan. I don’t know where it’s from, but it was in my house and I thought it was cute. I personally hate running sneakers and jeans, but I thought they worked with this outfit. Especially because I wanted to be comfy and represent my team (even though I’m not a “real” fan). #CowboysNation.

Outfit #2

img_9298img_9491img_9325img_9515

I love this look and it is perfect for the weather right now. It’s warm and ready to combat any rain or small random snow showers. I don’t usually wear grunge-y outfits only for the lack of vintage clothes, but this look works well for me. It’s simple, yet spices up the mood. I legit have ripped mom jeans, a t-shirt, an army jacket, and hiking boots (or as I like to call them my fimbs aka fake timbs).

Outfit #3

This outfit is for those fancy days. When you forget all about why you hate school and just want to look amazing. The wedges are easy to walk in and are perfect for school. I’m 90% sure that those are my thrifted True Religion Jeans, which are the best quality. My blouse is on the girly side, but the all black everything else compliments it. All of the school outfits were only pants because during this weather, I rarely wear skirts and dresses to school because it’s too cold.

Outfit Ideas for Church | #7DaysofJo

Hi lovebugs! It’s day two of #7DaysofJo. I know that personally I have a hard time picking out what to wear. Sometimes I just don’t have a clue at all and I decided that maybe I should help other girls like me with a mini outfit ideas series. The first in this mini series is outfit ideas for church! I hope I inspire some of you.

Outfit #1

img_0014img_0013img_0025img_0021

I love all black aesthetic of this look, especially because the blue of the denim pops so well against the black. To be honest, this is a fairly simple outfit with a basic black tee and a tulle skirt. Everything else really makes the outfit. At this stage of winter its warm outside but with a chill that these tights somewhat combat. I couldn’t decide which jacket I wanted to wear, but I knew that an all black jacket was a no. I wanted to look chic and not goth, which the denim in the jacket helped with. The pearls add to look to make it look more formal than it actually is, which is perfect for church. This rocker girl style look wouldn’t be complete without the ankle boots.

Outfit #2

The simplicity of this outfit is what makes it so striking to me. I love it and I think it enunciates my beautiful without being too much. I’m not big on jewelry because I end up usually taking it off or playing around with it. I was hesitant to wear gray, but light gray actually looks good on me. We are back with the black ankle boots! They are suede and are very comfortable to walk in. I don’t have any struggle when I walk in them, besides the fact that they are half a size too big. I’ll live though.

Outfit #3

I am very obsessed with this look – it’s elegant and definitely timeless. The burgundy tulle skirt is obviously the statement of the look. Your eyes are drawn to its color and material. I was supposedly to add a statement necklace, but I honestly forgot about it. However, I definitely believe that the look didn’t need it like I thought. I wanted to keep all of the focus on the skirt and its beauty and I thought the best way to do that was to make all the other aspects of my outfit black. To help with the fun material of tulle, my pumps and jacket are both suede.

Warby Parker just released their new Spring Collection for 2018 on January 9. Warby Parker believes in the right to for everyone to see. They aim to create designer glasses at a more affordable prices for those who can’t usually affordable to buy glasses. As a girl who wears her glasses as one of her main accessories, I think this is an amazing concept. With so many different styles of glasses, you will definitely find a pair that suit you in their collection.

I recommend that if you can’t afford to buy glasses at your local eye doctor, you should definitely check out the Warby Parker website. They even have a Home Try-On, where you select five pairs of glasses to try on and see how they look on it. After five days, you just ship them back and buy the pair that you like. It is so easy and convenient. The next time I change my glasses, I’ll most likely go and check out Warby Parker.
