    90s Inspired Grunge OOTD

    I spent most of the 90s wearing cutesy dresses, things with Minnie Mouse or Barney on them, and all-denim ensembles with Timberlands (yes, that last one actually happened, I have the pictures to prove it). So I missed out on some pretty cool trends. Some of these trends are back in style (bias skirts, neon, big sweaters), and last weekend I was channeling the 90s dress + cardigan + boots grunge ootd. All The Craft vibes, let me tell you. To wear chartreuse, I really have to be feeling myself, lol. Dress I got this dress from Asos a couple of years ago for a trip to Jamaica (yay for…

    Beauty Products I Wish I’d Had as a Teenager

    Its amazing how much beauty products have changed since I was a teenager. The drugstore has upped its game big time, and the shear number of brands and product offerings have increased drastically. I was also a bit oblivious to skincare and makeup in general until my twenties, so there’s that, lol. Today I thought I’d share some of the products I really wish I’d had when I was a teenager. Skincare My main skin concerns back then were acne and redness. While I didn’t have the cystic acne I do as an adult, like any teenager, I got pimples. Oh, how I wish I’d had the Origins Spot Treatment…

    Sewing and Styling a 1950s Skirt

    Did you dream of a closet full of poodle skirts when you were little? No? Just me? Cool…. But really, a full 1950s, midi skirt is just so dreamy.

(I have a true vintage pattern for a 1950s circle skirt, but its for a size that was a few pounds ago). And I had a gift card for Mood Fabrics, talk about my fancy self! I chose a very nice black, double-faced (meaning I wouldn’t…

    Modern Mod: Madewell, H&M, Sezane OOTD

    After what feels like forever, I’m finally back! I switched web hosts which took a lot longer than I thought it would, but I’m back at it now. So to kick things off (or on?!), I want to share a little OOTD from last weekend. I’m calling this “modern mod.” Why “modern mod,” you may ask? Well, for starters: mini skirt. For seconds and thirds, a mini skirt made of cord material in burnt orange. Does it get more 60s than that? I picked this skirt up from Madewell a few months ago. I was on the hunt for this style of skirt and finally found one (in my size!).…
