Festival Season 101 

Let’s just put this out there:
 GO BIG OR GO HOME this year! This is the year of great festivals and if you’re not planning on going to one (or eight) of them, then you should definitely change your mind! Music is life, dude. And it’s so much better live! 

Festivals are so much fun, and a chance to express your crazy side! You see everyone at coachella with the crazy outfits/hair/and makeup and wonder, how can I look like that at a festival?! Well, let me help you with some inspiration! 

HAIR // 

Ask your stylist (or come to me at my salon) and ask for Redken City Beats color to add some pop to your every day look! They have all kinds of beautiful colors that don’t last too terribly long so that you can go back to work the next week looking like your professional self. 

MAKEUP // 

Glitter, glitter, GLITTER. It’s everywhere!! My absolute fav right now is glitter from Glitter Injections!

OUTFITS // 

Check out Forever 21, Tillies and Pacsun for some festival vibe clothes. Or, get them online for cheap like me! I order a lot off of the Wish app and the Wanelo app. They take a little longer to ship so order in plenty of time! Also, if you want it quicker, try Amazon Prime! It’s my jam! 

ACCESSORIES //

Amazon, amazon, amazon… 
Get your nails done right beforehand so you don’t have to worry about them. 
Eyelash extensions are the bomb because you don’t have to worry about wearing a ton of makeup at the festival. 
Bathing suits for clothes is OKAY. It’s too damn hot to dress up in bellbottoms and bell sleeve tops. 
Practice your braids with friends! 

I can’t wait to share my own festival looks with you all! Comment below with any questions! 

What’s Super Cool for Spring

We are finally entering into SPRING! Thank the lort. 

I’ve been creepin’ on Instagram and Pinterest lately to find out what’s IN for Spring this year! I’m so excited for Spring fashion and all Summer adventures to come. Here’s the hot stuff this month: 

HAIR // 
Texture, texture, texture! You almost want that “I just rolled out of bed” look. (which luckily I do everyday) Also, if you’ve got natural wave or curls, rock them!! 

MAKEUP // 

Natural. Don’t cake it, don’t bake it. Don’t over due it or use too much self tanner, trust me. Dudes don’t like it. If you feel like you need a lot of eye makeup, invest in lash extensions! They make me feel like I never need that much makeup AT ALL. It’s amazing! Add a bold, warm- tone lip for Spring: 

FASHION //
Everything SHEER! A woman does not have to be modest in order to be respected. Show off a little bit! But don’t get too far out of your comfort zone to where you feel hella awkward. It’s not for everyone! Also, everyone’s rocking heavy jewelry, lots of jewelry, floral and bold colors! 

HATS // 
You usually throw on a ballcap to cover your dirty hair on laundry/cleaning day, but now it’s fashionable! I still kind of wear it on my dirtier hair days, but I now love hats when I never used to wear them! You can get cheap ones on Amazon or grab some at PacSun, H&M or Forever 21. Going out to brunch with your girls? Hat it. Casual drinks with a friend? Hat it. Shopping at the mall? Hat it. 

SHOES // 
Shoe styles these days are either kept very casual or fancy smancy. I’m loving that tshirts, hats and tennis shoes are an everyday style now. Also, I love dressing up kinda fancy for no reason! 

ONE PIECES // 
SO. freaking. cute! Didn’t quite get your Summer bikini body ready in time? Get a cute one piece and don’t sweat it! 

ACTIVITIES //
DAY DRINKING! Include brunch if you wish or skip it and get to sippin’! It’s easier to go out and drink and hang with some friends for a couple hours during the daytime than being up for all hours of the night and being hungover the whole next day. Especially now that the weather is getting nicer! Find a place nearby with an open patio and great drinks! Even maybe some games. 

(Obviously, I’m obsessed with @laurajadestone and want to be her)
 So here’s my lil scoop on what’s hot for this Spring! If you have any questions, please comment below! Happy Wednesday! 

Black on Black on Blonde

How did distressing your clothes go? Good, bad or otherwise? Hey, you never know until you try. Here I’m rocking one of my dad’s old AC/DC shirts that I cropped and chopped holes in. I made this look a little grungy because that’s how I felt that day. I also would wear it with jeans and a cardigan or with some over the knee boots! 

Remember, if you ever can’t decide what to wear, ALL BLACK ALWAYS WORKS! 

I’m also glad that this park let me crash and snap some photos, although I had to dodge all of the people jogging and sprinting by…. but didn’t these turn out amazing? Tyrone is my favorite photographer in Nashville! He is amazing, so if you have any photo needs, he’s your guy! I’ve posted his link above. 

Luckily I’ve gotten a couple nice days in Nashville lately that I could spend outside brunching, day drinking or just hanging out. But apparently it’s supposed to snow this weekend? Our weather can NEVER make up it’s mind… I should make a post about what to do while it’s cold, but honestly I don’t like getting out in it and I’d rather cuddle and hang with my dog.
So we’ll all just have to hold on and keep anticipating Spring to come along and the warm weather stay for good! I’ve got a lot coming up that I can’t wait to share! 
Ps // Happy International Women’s Day! Take time to think about a woman that inspires you and how you inspire yourself! 

Have a wonderful Wednesday! 

What’s Fab For February 

Fashion // 

Hair // 

Makeup // 

Gotta keep motivated and inspired!! I’m in LOVE with these looks! 

Try something new this month! A new makeup look, a new outfit trend or a new hairstyle. Maybe even some new decor to spice up your life a little. Have more fun with your style! 

Happy Wednesday! 

Pretty Woman gone Grunge


All Photos // Power and Influence Photography 

Alright, let’s not act like you’re not obsessed with OTK boots (over the knee) and don’t know how to wear them without looking like a skank. ( We’ve all seen Pretty Woman… ) Well, you’re in luck, because I’m going to tell you. 
At first it’s going to be tough because the first time you ever wear them you’ll feel weird about it. But, you’ve got to get some confidence going with them. And TRUST ME, you’ll get compliments fo sho! 

So let’s go through some options, shall we? 
• Cute top // jeans // OTK boots over the jeans 
• bodycon dress // OTK boots // leather jacket 
• long t shirt or sweater // tights // OTK boots 
• romper // cardigan // OTK boots
• sweater // shorts // tights // OTK boots

Best places to get OTK boots: 
• Agaci’s shoe store (“O” Shoes) 

• Windsor

• GoJane.com

• Forever 21 

• Belk 

• Off Broadway 

• DSW

• Steve Madden 

• Shii by Journeys

Gypsy Warrior Vibes

Disclaimer: sorry about the language but actually I’m not sorry. 

Guys… check out these amazing photos!! Tyrone is the freaking man. He killed this last photo shoot. And this outfit? Oh my gahh. Gypsy Warrior is one of my absolute favorite clothing stores! I shop strictly online, because their shop isn’t local to me, but everything is always perfect! They also have cute little knick knacks and home decor! They really fill my edgy/punk vibes and make me feel like a total badass. If you haven’t checked them out, then you need to right meow! Every girl has a little dark side to them, might as well let it out sometimes. 

I’ve also been on a crazy bomber jacket kick lately. I’m obsessed. I almost have one in every color… and I’m not exaggerating. I love this deep sage color and the subtle message on the back (insert winky emoji here) Mostly my hair will cover it, but I can always flash it at people that need it. 

And let’s not act like “Not your babe” isn’t the motto of the year for like half of the women out here chillin on Earth. Or maybe it’s just me, I don’t know. Nothing makes a guy want you more than when you don’t actually want him…. haha it’s true! 

I’m praising Gypsy Warrior for their amazing clothes and accessories! I can’t get enough of them! Check them out here! 

Happy Wednesday, babes!

All Things NYE!


All Photos // Reymarkable Photography

Alright, so with as much as 2016 sucked (…I mean for me it kinda did) we need to go out with a bang for this New Year’s Eve. 

As I get older, I keep running out of events to dress up for. No more proms or formals or whatever. This year, all I had was my company Christmas party and will have NYE. 

But what you’re probably wondering is what do I wear? What style do I choose to go with? Well let’s get a couple things straight: EVERY GIRL will ALWAYS want to wear sequins/sparkles/shimmery things on NYE. Always, there’s no question about it. And that’s OK! It’s hard to be a leader rather than a follower on this particular holiday. Also, if all else fails you can always rely on an LBD (little black dress). But, there are ways to change it up a little bit. 

Try Velvet // red velvet, blue velvet, green velvet. It doesn’t matter. I wore a red velvet dress to my Christmas party and got SO many compliments. 

Get some faux fur // let’s be real, it’s probably going to be freezing that night. Rock a faux fur jacket in cream, gray or blush with all black underneath, pants top and shoes. 

Get some statement shoes // you can always find sparkly shoes. Or get something trendy like the new see-through booties or thigh-high boots. 
LOOK HOT, WHY NOT?!

Get on Pinterest and check out “New Years Eve outfits” and “NYE makeup”. Rock those sequins, darken that makeup and go have a blast! 

Now the bigger question…. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? I’ll help ya. 
• go to your fav bar and get HAMMERED. just don’t get kicked out before midnight, seriously. 

• go to a smaller, more eclectic bar for a more classy, chill loungy environment. you won’t be as closterphobic. 

• find a cool rooftop downtown and make a reservation to hang there for the night with a great view of the city. 

• reserve an Airbnb for the night with a group of your besties 

• or get a fancy hotel room with room service 

• take a trip and do something different for a change! go to a different city to celebrate

• or lay at home in your pjs with your bf or bff and eat popcorn and pop some champagne 

And here’s some general hot tips: 

• most places are going to have a cover charge or require reservation 

• Ubers are very expensive this night. Last year we had a $200 uber fare. It was crazy but hey, it’s cheaper than a DUI. Just make sure you’ve got some mula saved up for whatever you do $$$

• girls, DONT wear hella uncomfortable heels. you are going to be so pissed at yourself. 

• don’t kiss a random stranger just because you don’t have a “New Years kiss”… unless they’re hot… you know what, no just don’t. and don’t kiss your best straight guy friend because it will just f*ck things up. 

• if you’re really cool and have multiple events you’ve been invited to, chose the one with the BEST people that yore going to have the most FUN with. if you love your best friend Becky buts she’s lame AF, don’t go. if you love/like some dude but want to go hoe it out with your girlfriends, go do that. they’ll figure something out. it’s your life, go live it up while you’re still young! 

• stick with ONE kind of alcohol. you don’t want to be so insanely miserably hungover on New Year’s Day with your family. personally, I’m a tequila drinker. But, I’ll most likely drink champagne this year because that makes me a happy drunk without taking my clothes off and dancing on tables. I’ll be wearing a dress, so that wouldn’t be very classy of me. 

But hey, all that matters is that you have FUN! and be safe but mostly have fun.
