Mellow Yellow | Spring OOTD 2018

Happy Sunday:

Oh yes, oh yes, it’s Spring time! -The Little Einsteins (#momlife)

Being a May baby, it’s only natural that I claim the Spring Season as my favorite. The cool breeze, the blooming flowers, all that color – it’s the season of rebirth and growth. For the Summer lovers, it’s the four play for late night outings and priceless memories. Not to mention, of course, it’s festival season.

Yellow is one color I’ve seen a lot of on my Insta and I couldn’t help but take part in the color wave. It’s the color of Sunshine (insert Sun Flower Emoji here) and to me, it’s a reminder that there are always brighter days coming. This yellow button-down top is one of the treasures I found on my last thrift trip [FYI: haul video coming soon]. I’ve never owned a top with vertical stripes & in this color? It was essential for my wardrobe this season.

I decided to pair this top with my American Apparel High Wasted jeans to keep this look casual. To maintain that casual tone, I went with my Stussy tote as my purse – this immediately made me feel like I was back home in NYC; taking a trip to the Strand with a gal pal, followed by a sit down in Union Square with Fro Yo and friendly squirrels. I’m not home sick, I promise.

For a slight bit of interest, I styled this looks with my Platform Vans & horizontal stripped socks. The neutral browns on the socks went well with the top and the black with my sneakers. I also really liked the contrast of the horizontal stripes on the socks against the vertical stripes on the top.

Birthday Haul | Video

Happy Monday:

I turned 23 on  Friday, May 13th.

My entire weekend was super chill – I spent it with my closest family members with no crazy celebration and it was honestly perfect. I like it when things are simple. 

My sister was sweet enough to take my daughter and I out shopping and for lunch Thursday afternoon. I’m super stoked about everything she got me – the clothes perfectly fit with my new maturing style.

Friday was date night for the boo thang and I. We ate some Mexican food, had a few drinks and enjoyed each other’s company. I cherish easy going nights like these.

 

 

Kudos to darkotheshooter for the OOTD photo. Expect a full post on my birthday outfit next week.

Saturday, my mother took Kaelynn and I to the flea market. We use to go to the flea market ALL the time when I was younger, so reminiscing on that was super awesome. Oh, and to top it off: my mom gave me a whole 25$ to spend on myself. That may not seem like a lot, but when you’re go-to racks are the dollar racks – that’s what I call a shopping spree.

I was super excited about everything I got that I decided to film a haul video. I am definitely planing a few more trips to the flea market this summer. There are always hidden gems at the market.

Her are the things I got for my birthday:

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Collective Spring Haul ’16 | Video

Happy Friday:

I’ve done some damage to my wallet lately, and when I say damage, I mean damage. So much so, I needed to film this haul in two parts!

If it hasn’t been obvious, I am beyond ready for Spring – I’ve been shopping for Spring attire since January! There’s this feeling that Spring weather evokes that simply lifts up my hippie soul.

It’s my season.

Check out the make-up, accessories & clothing pieces I’ve accumulated in the past few months – there’s a nice variety of things!

Watch both parts here:

Thank you for stopping by! What are your closet essentials for this Spring season?

Try-On Thrift Haul. Fall ’15. | Video

Happy Wednesday:

I hope y’all are having a good week! My week’s been good, I’m feelin’ unconditionally blessed.

I haven’t gone shopping for myself in such a long time – there are just way too many priorities I have in my life to even think about going shopping for myself. But I managed to find an opportunity to do a bit of retail therapy while on the hunt for my Halloween costume. My boyfriend, daughter and I decided to dress up as a family this year, going all out as Scooby Doo & the gang. I was Velma, my boyfriend was Shaggy, and my daughter was Scooby. I’m totally in love with how our costumes turned out!

Thrift haul videos are one of my favorite types of videos to watch on YouTube, so I was super excited to bust out the camera, sit on my chair & chat about my new pieces. I do apologize if this video seems a  bit rushed – the only time I had to film was right before school! I was stuck re-filming this video due to technical issues.

Nonetheless, I’m super excited about everything I picked up. Expect to see these pieces in upcoming posts and lookbooks.

Here is my Try On Thrift Haul:

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Sending my love,
