Commuting, working, pursuing, surviving

DSC_0108Okay so I may have had a little breakdown in my car this afternoon, but here we are–I am relaxing and writing a post, so I’m thriving (kinda).

Honestly, I think I deserve a breakdown, though. I am a college grad working three jobs just to stay afloat, follow my passion and make that moulaaaaa. You’d have a mental breakdown too (:

Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change my life for the world, but sometimes I need a GOOD cry. I was leaving my second job, on my way to my third, realized I was about to run out of gas and wouldn’t have time to get any for the next two days because of my schedule. Hello, breakdown!

Embroidered jeans—they’re back!

Good morning everyone!

It’s another hot hot day, so I’m staying inside and catching up on some work and crossing some things off my to-do list! I love days that I can just mentally organize my life (and my desktop)—it makes me feel put together, even if I am not!

I wanted to post today on my blog because I have really exciting news! I’ve teamed up with XO Mandy Sue, a boutique out of Newport, California to bring all of my readers and followers a discount code for their entire site. With the code RACHEL35 at http://www.xomandysue.com/ you can get 35% off your entire order! Their clothes are FAB, I posted a photo in the jumpsuit I got from them in THIS blog post, and here I am to talk about their Bedford Jeans—a personal favorite of mine.

Hidden Gems

IMG_8019Happy Sunday, everyone! Today I am writing about how and where to find the best pieces, that fit your style and wardrobe!

The idea for this blog post came to mind, because in the picture above, I am wearing a $4 sweater that I found at the place my grandma lives! It goes to show that you don’t have to be looking in the trendiest place to find such a gem. This sweater probably has a story that I may or may not want to know about, but the fact that it is mine now is so cool to me!

KISS: Keep it Simple Sista

IMG_7691

Welcome back, everyone! Tonight I am sharing a simple, yet chic look, that has become one of my go-to’s this winter. Between the cold and unpredictable weather, I want to keep covered at all TIMES! With that being said, I am obsessed with turtlenecks. They are so comfortable and cute. They are also quite stylish because I don’t think a lot of people wear them or think to wear them!

Cute & Casual

Good morning loves!

Today I am bringing you a look that is both cute and casual! I think it’s super fun to dress up sometimes and super comfy to dress down—however, if you’re anything like me, it’s hard to find the balance in between. For this outfit I did a mixture of pieces. Comfy? The tee shirt & jeans! Cute? The jacket and thigh high boots! Let’s get into the details of this look!

Faux & Fab

IMG_3035

Hey loves!

Today I’m talking faux fur! I had a feeling faux fur was going to be in this year, and I was right! This jacket is really cute—but there’s a story behind it…of course! Back in September, I was gifted a gift card from Citizen’s Bank through social media, for Amazon! I was so excited, and wanted to use it to do a little Amazon clothing haul. I ordered three items, this coat being one of them. Two weeks after I ordered, the first two items came (from China) and they were so small, poor quality, and looking NOTHING like how they were displayed. This coat was shipped separately and JUST came last week!! Though it took a long time, I was really happy with the fact that it fit, it’s super cute and nice quality. Enough with the back story, let’s get into this look!

Sunday Funday

IMG_9378.jpg

Hey everyone! I love a good Sunday Funday, just as much as the next person! However, Sundays for me usually consist of cracking down and doing some homework. Especially with the Thanksgiving break coming up, I am pretty sure every college student can relate to the struggle this week.

Anyways, just because I am missing out on the fun this Sunday, doesn’t mean you have to! That is why I want to highlight this outfit that is PERF for any relaxing Sunday. It’s comfy and casual, but you may need to add a jacket.

Let’s get to it!
