Margot Robbie, especially in this shoot on the set of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, has always been major hair and style inspo for me. While the perfect at-home blowout still eludes me, I realized that I could probably come pretty close to emulating this iconic look thanks to my latest impulse purchase: white go-go boots (which are on sale right now for just $22, by the way!)
I love this outfit so much and can’t wait to incorporate it into my regular outfit cycle (although note to self: wait until it’s warmer than 32 degrees next time!)
I’ve already talked about my love of the preppy style resurgence once on the blog, but today I’m focusing on a different preppy style trend: sweater vests! I made many trips to local thrift stores before finding one to add to my collection. I’ve found that they key to styling sweater vests is making sure they have v-neck neckline. I’m usually against v-necks, but they work so well with this style and adding a collared shirt underneath!
When styling your own sweater vest, you could also pair it with a pleated or flared skirt, but I chose to style mine with jeans since it was a crisp 38 degrees when doing this shoot. I also think the jeans make it so wearable and cute for day-to-day activities! To really play up the preppy vibe, I added a pearl choker and green marble hair clip.
One of my favorite trends from 2020 has been adding elements of street style into my wardrobe. It used to intimidate me, but as I experimented more I realized how easy it is to put together an effortlessly-chic streetwear look. I love these outfits for days when I’m out running errands or just lounging around at home. They are super versatile and work for a lot of different situations!
When I first start styling a street style outfit, I like to stick to items in a black and white color scheme. This is easy, as many of my trendier pieces tend to lean black and white anyways. For my own personal take on street style, I always choose a more “athletic” piece as the staple. For today’s look, it was my biker shorts. I’ve been living in these lately and I knew they would be the perfect foundation for this outfit. I then chose my black puffer jacket and paired it with a white turtleneck for some contrast. To tie everything together, I accessorized with my chic gold hoops, nylon crossbody, and chunky Filas. Casual, cute, and so comfortable!
November is almost over and Thanksgiving has come and gone, which means winter is officially on the way! I’m home in Texas for the holidays which means I’m getting slightly warmer weather than I would back in Oklahoma, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t getting cold here, too. After several days of 70-degree weather, this morning I was able to add a sweater to my #OOTD and start bundling up a little more.
Sweaters (especially turtleneck sweaters) are my fave during the winter. I paired my classic white turtleneck sweater with jeans, booties, and a velvet newsboy cap for a super easy winter look. I also appreciate that the hat helps to keep my ears warm when the wind starts picking up!
I can’t believe the holidays are already almost here! I’m looking forward to shopping for my friends and family and picking out fun holiday gifts. If you have any winter content you want me to consider making, let me know in the comments and I’ll see if I can make it happen!
One of my favorite movements right now is repurposed designer jewelry. Essentially, jewelry designers take buttons, charms, or other hardware from vintage designer pieces and repurpose them to create a whole new look. This is great because it means that pre-loved pieces can have a new life as a different accessory, minimizing waste. It’s also great because repurposed designer pieces are often a fraction of the cost of the originals!
I found 512 Jewelry through social media and immediately fell in love. I had been looking to add some repurposed Chanel pieces to my closet, and all of the designs on their site were so gorgeous. I patiently waited for a restock on some of my favorite pieces, and managed to snag all of them the same day! Score!
I bought a pair of gold hoops, a lock necklace (which I had been on the hunt for lately anyways, with or without the Chanel logo), and a rhinestone-studded Chanel charm made into a necklace. These pieces instantly spice up any outfit, and I’m looking forward to wearing them all season long!
If you’re on the 512 Jewelry website and you see something you like, buy it right then. Their super popular pieces can sell out in minutes, so don’t waste time if you know you want that piece. Otherwise, you’ll be stuck waiting and hoping for a restock on that particular item.

P.S. Currently obsessed with my headband– you can find it at Target!
One of my favorite trends for fall 2020 has to be jewel tones. I love the classic white, cream, brown, and black colors that traditionally accompany fall and winter fashion, but jewel tones are making a statement this year and I’m super excited to be able to mix things up. Right now, my favorite jewel tone is ruby red (this might be because I’m an OU student and it’s incredibly close to crimson.)
I knew I wanted to pair my ruby shirt with my pleated skirt because the plaid pattern also has red in it. A match made in heaven! Since the pleated skirt already has a preppy vibe, I decided to really lean into it and accessorize with a pearl headband and matching white booties.
This is one of my favorite outfits I’ve styled lately! I plan to share another post later in the season about how preppy fashion is making a comeback, so be on the lookout for that. I’m definitely a prepster at heart so all these trends are making my heart sing!
Fall is in full swing here in Norman, Oklahoma and that means it’s time for one of my favorite times of year: layering szn! Being able to transition summer outfits to fall is so fun and easy because sometimes all you needs is a comfy jacket of your choice. That’s what I opted for in today’s #OOTD- I got to break my favorite corduroy jacket out of the closet and use it to warm up my summery outfit.
Corduroy is one of my favorite fabrics for fall, and I’m so glad I have this jacket as a closet staple. I found it while thrifting on my 2019 spring break trip and I’ve been relying on it in the spring and summer months ever since. It’s a little oversized, which makes it perfect for layering.
By the way, can we talk about how cute this white baguette bag from SHEIN is? I found this beauty while thrifting and it was still in perfect condition. Can’t wait to add similar styles to my collection, they’re the perfect size and are so trendy right now!
If you were a pre-teen in the late 2000s to early 2010s, you probably remember the iconic color combination that was hot pink and lime green. It was almost unescapable- I feel like everything from clothing to PB Teen home décor was covered in those complimentary colors during that time period. But just because colors are complimentary, that is, colors that opposite of each other on the color circle, doesn’t mean they automatically go together. If you decide to pair complimentary colors together (especially pink and green), you have to be strategic. Otherwise, you’ll unintentionally look like your 2009 middle school self.
To correctly style complimentary colors, you should pick one color to be your main color and one to be your accent color. (For this outfit, I chose green as my main and pink as my accent.) Add some neutrals (mine is white) so the two colors don’t seem completely overwhelming. And whenever possible, don’t pair a neon color with anything other than a neutral. Since I chose light green and light pink, the colors seem less harsh and look more cohesive together.
With all that being said, feel free to be adventurous when pairing colors together! My recommendations are just that- recommendations- and are not the be-all and end-all of fashion color theory. Be creative, and have fun!
It’s getting hot in Texas, so I’m always looking for easy-breezy outfits to choose on days I need to be out and about running errands. This is one of my new favs! The silky top is super lightweight and keeps me super cool, and the shorts are stretchy and comfortable. Paired with my wedge sandals that are meant to provide a comfortable walking experience, this outfit is perfect for the days that I’m on the go!
I always struggled with wearing tie-front shirts because I felt like my bra was always showing, but recently I saw a TikTok that showed how to tie the front around your bra to completely stop that from happening. A game-changer for sure!
Happy (almost) Fourth of July! I have been looking for an outfit to pair my new white booties with for a long time, and today’s red, white, and blue look made them the perfect addition! I’ve never really been a booties person (I feel like they usually make my short legs look even shorter) but I loved that these came with a tall, chunky heel. The perfect stepping stone into the world of les bottines!
I purchased these boots secondhand at Uptown Frisco– can you believe that the exact style of bootie I had been wanting to get my hands on just happened to come in my size? I’ve had great luck lately; a perk of working there is that you can get your hands on the new items as soon as they come in!
I think my next step in styling booties will be to figure out how to pair these with jeans. I want to make sure I can continue to wear these when fall rolls around (even though right now it feels so far away!)
