I was pretty unsure if I would actually post these photo, because truthfully I’m not too fond of how I styled this dress. I got this dress after drooling over it for weeks but unfortunately it arrived late summer. Thankfully though, we’ve had unseasonably hot weather so I’ve had the chance to wear it out a lot more than expected. Since then, I’ll styled it differently and in ways I like a lot more. But thats ok, because dresses are supposed to be worn more than once, right?
When I threw this dress on originally, I had no intention to take outfit photos. This was actually purely intended to just be a Youtube recording day. When I threw the hat on, I just knew I couldn’t let this outfit go undocumented.
I’ve got a really big, overwhelming thing for pastels right now. I guess you could always say that I’ve been a little obsessed with baby colours but lately, I’ve just been wild about them. Nothing puts a smile on my face faster than spotting something pastel coloured. I’ll even go as far as buying erasers or bringing home paint sample cards because the colours just make me so darn happy. There’s something to be said for colour therapy and I truly believe they can make or break your mood.
First, I’d like to warn you before clicking “read more” that this quite a picture heavy post. I don’t typically get the chance to shoot at such a gorgeous location so I really took advantage of my setting. There were just too many stunning photos to pass up posting them all. I hope you’ll enjoy them just as much as I do!
When someone asks you to go to a Rihanna concert, you don’t hesitate. That’s precisely what I did when my friend Jackie told me that Rihanna’s concert would be corresponding with my trip to Boston. In usual fashion, I painstakingly spend the weeks leading up planning my ensemble. Fortunately for me, I had already placed my order for this lace up dress
long before I said yes to the concert. If Rihanna could see me, I think she’d approve of my outfit wholeheartedly.
Now, lets talk about the actual concert. I wanna start by saying that Rihanna was incredible. There’s absolutely no denying that. She knows how to entertain and her energy filled the entire stadium, which isn’t an easy task. But damn, was the concert a huge bummer. From the second Jackie and I grabbed our seats, it was drama packed. Maybe I’m just too old and senile to really fit in with the young folk these days.
All things considered, the night wasn’t a complete bust. The second Rihanna came out (she opened with Stay and looked phenomenal!) I forget about everything. I’m an even bigger Rihanna fan now!

The 14th has come and gone but its always Valentine’s day in my heart! I’m truly a sucker for romance, chocolate and Valentine’s decor so I really, really get into it this time of year. Here’s one of the many inspired outfits I threw together. I meant to take more but unfortunately the layout of my room doesn’t quite afford me much room to take photos without a massive struggle. With all that being sad, I hope you all had a great Valentine’s day, no matter what you did. I always felt like this holiday was about the love being a romantic couple but I’ve come to appreciate it as a day to celebrate the love you have for anyone in your life. Sometimes thats even paying tribute and kindness to yourself!
