Get Up, Dress Up, Show Up, And Never Give Up

I am certain that everyone has experienced sadness, disappointment, lack of motivation, and so on. It’s only natural, we are human. I am a big fan of quotes. Whenever I feel stuck or down in the dumps I always head to Pinterest (CLICK HERE TO FOLLOW ME ON PINTEREST) and find some inspiring words and phrases to help me keep going. This brings me to the theme of today’s post. It was inspired by one of my recently discovered quotes “No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up, and never give up.” After reading this phrase, I… View Post

#YoungerTV

After a week of exams, writing lengthy final papers, and sleepless nights, a month-long break from college life is very much needed.  I can’t believe I’ve been home for a month. It has been nice catching up on sleep, hanging with the family, and spending more time on my blog.  However, my life at school is so different than life at home.  I find myself having more free time, and if you are a person like me who can’t sit still, I need to keep myself busy. Over my month-long break; I have kept myself busy by working part-time at… View Post

Autumn Days Are Here Again

From bright green leaves to rich red leaves, from hot, humid days to crisp, chilly afternoons, from lightweight dresses to chunky sweaters, from strappy sandals to knee high boots… autumn days are here again. Hands down, autumn is my favorite season. I love the changing leaves, the cool air, the pumpkin spice lattes, and of course the fall fashion.  One thing that I don’t love about the month of October, the heart of the fall season, is midterms, which is why I have been so absent from my site.  Once October hits, I spend the majority of my days and… View Post

Key to Happiness

We think of a key as an instrument of openings and closings. This small object, usually made of metal, can also symbolize mystery and curiosity. The key introduced in this post isn’t used to open my car, or my house, or any door for that matter, but instead it’s used to accessorize one of my favorite outfits. Recently, I connected with Deena Saracino, who created the brand La Cle (which means Key in French). I love supporting fellow entrepreneurs and La Cle’s motto “look good, feel good, and do good with one single piece of jewelry” is a powerful phrase… View Post

Color, Texture, and Wood

Happy July. It seems like it takes forever for summer to arrive, but when it does, it just flies by. Hope everyone is enjoying the summer. Today’s post highlights more of my summer style and how I’ve been styling some of my new purchases. Zara is my go to destination when they are having their annual sale. It’s a HUGE sale where every piece of clothing is marked down and keeps getting marked down throughout the weeks. Working in the city this summer, I feel like I’ve become a real New Yorker and I seem to do most of my… View Post

Kimono Loving

Walking into your favorite clothing store, I am certain you will find an extensive selection of kimonos. Kimonos long, short, patterned, colorful and some maybe with fringe or tassels, so it’s safe to say you will find a kimono that will suit your personal style. I like to call kimonos the summer sweater. They aren’t as heavy as a sweater so you can wear them in the summer heat without dying of heatstroke. They’re just a light piece of fabric that perfectly drapes your body to complete any outfit. My favorite way to wear a kimono is with a simple… View Post

Class Wear

Where did the time go? It’s hard to believe that I finished my last week of classes of my sophomore year of college. It’s been a good semester, filled with lots of fun and of course hard-work. I want to capture one last stylish outfit for what to wear to class before finals begin this week because then I will be living in leggings and t-shirts. For the most part, I like to look nice for my classes. Although, I am up early for my classes, I still get excited going through my closet and putting together outfits for the… View Post

Welcome to New York

On the train ride to the city, I had Taylor Swift’s song Welcome to New York stuck in my head. Seriously, that song is my anthem. For all of you who don’t know, I love New York City. I love the culture, the shopping, and all the possibilities the city has to offer. I hope within the next couple of years, I can call New York City my home. But for now, I take frequent trips to the city that never sleeps. Last week I was on spring break. It was nice to take a break from college life and… View Post

Finally Feeling Like Spring

 Today, I woke up to the birds chirping and the sun shining through my windows, it is finally starting to feel like spring. This winter has been brutal with all the snow and frigid temperatures. I never thought I would be so excited to see the temperature rise above 40 degrees. It felt like a heat wave. I was determined to make the best out of this beautiful, spring like day so I decided to take my camera outside and explore my surroundings. I didn’t have a specific outfit planned for this shoot. I am so sick of my worn… View Post

The Best And Worst Dressed At The Grammy’s 2015

My Sunday was full of studying because my statistic and psychology professor decided to schedule our first exam on the same day. To say I was stressed is an under statement. I had to spend the majority of my afternoon and night studying, which meant I couldn’t spend all night watching the 2015 Grammy’s. I always enjoy watching this award show, because it recognizes great talent in the music industry. Since I couldn’t spend my Sunday night watching the Grammy’s, I decided to only watch the red carpet special. I deserved a 2-hour study break, right? It was well worth… View Post

Liv’s Style: Poncho? Sweater? Or Both?

Obviously, these photos were taking before winter storm Juno or the snowstorm this week that slammed the East coast. I miss seeing the grass because now all I see is piles and piles of snow. Although the weather has changed in the last couple weeks, my love for this outfit still remains the same. Whenever I wear this outfit, I always confuse people. They look at me and they think I am wearing a sweater, but then at a different angle people think I am wearing a poncho. This poncho/sweater has been one of my favorite fashion pieces because it… View Post

Liv’s Style: Motorcycle Chic

Immediately, when I got into the car to drive to my favorite park to capture photos, my mom looked at my outfit and said I look like I was ready to get on a motorcycle, hence the name motorcycle chic. I agreed with her because my outfit was quite dark and edgy. The leather jacket and tied up combat boots, gave my look a motorcycle vibe. The leather jacket, dark gray high-waisted skinny jeans, and black combat boots weren’t just the star of the look. What really tied together the look and added some color to my outfit was my… View Post
