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 dress. I like this approach because sometimes dresses can just be boring without proper accessorizing. Kimonos are the perfect way to finish off a look and add more style. I’ve had the best luck finding kimonos at Forever 21, H&M, Cotton On, and TJMaxx. But like I said kimonos are so popular this season you can pretty much find a kimono anywhere. I love kimonos that feature beautiful prints, lovely colors and maybe even some fringe detailing. I usually go with kimonos that have some sort of neutral color present like black, gray, or cream. The neutral colors allow me…

On Sunday, May 3rd, I was able to take a much-needed break from studying for finals and took a trip to New York City. Most of my adventures to NYC are special, but this trip was extra special because I was attending my first ever The Makeup Show with my best friend, Christina, by my side. Coffee in hand, we both boarded the train at 9 A.M. and arrived in the city an hour later. The entire train ride, it felt like I had ants in my pants, or in my case my romper. I was so excited not knowing what to expect. Although this was my first time attending The Makeup Show, this was not my first makeup trade show. Many of my readers know that I have been to IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) three times, so one thing I knew I could count on would be cosmetics galore and meeting countless cosmetic lovers at The Makeup Show. We really lucked out with the weather on Sunday. It was a beautiful, sunny day with temperatures in the mid 70s. I took advantage of the warm weather by wearing a romper, wedges, and sunglasses. Rompers are my must-have for…

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 day. When I feel stylish, I feel more confident, and more motivated to take on my busy day. On sunny days with temps in the mid 60s, I enjoy wearing a pair of skinny jeans, a short-sleeved shirt, and of course my Converse sneakers. An outfit like this is casual and comfortable for class but not as basic as your typical sweatpants look. I’m a huge fan of Madewell denim, so naturally I have been enjoying these new jeans from their spring collection. I can’t get enough of their skinny jeans they call the painter editors because of their artfully…
