Color Blocked

Does any one have a legit shopping problem? I definitely do. I have absolutely no self control. It really doesn't help that I work in a retail store where new clothes come in almost everyday! It's pure torture. I'm at that point where I have to start paying back my student loans and I want to pay them back as quickly as possible. I really have to put a stop to my shopping and you don't understand how hard that will be for me. 

To help myself, I want to get back to thrifting. Buying everything second hand. I use to do that when I was in college when I barely had any money at all. If I live in my college student budget I can definitely put a dent in student loans.. 

Now about what I'm wearing! Cobalt blue is one of my favorite colors to wear as well as olive green. So you know I'm loving this outfit! I'm so glad the warm weather is finally trying to make it's way through the cold because I couldn't wait to get back into my skirts and crop tops.

I'm wearing an H&M croptop, Amiclubwear skirt, H&M divived black chunky sandals, Amiclubwear necklace, and Forever 21 pink bag. 

Until next time...

Cheetah Print Tracks

I've been feeling a little uninspired by fashion lately. I've been feeling like my style has become so generic for a while. I'm actually positive that it has. When I first began my blog, I was a sophomore in college. I had no money, so I went thrift store shopping. That's all my wardrobe consisted of for like 2 years. So my style was very unique and truly my own. I've actually started to look back at my old photos to get inspiration from myself. Now, that I started working in retail it's really hard for me not to be trendy. Especially working at a store like H&M. The company specifically goes after every trend each season. Since I spend most of my life there, I shop it! 

I'm trying to get back to my old self. Stop shopping for one, and gain my style back. I wear so many different styles when I actually think true style is having a style that is YOU and all your own. For example, Solange Knowles. She has a style that she can be identified as, that's all her own. She loves prints and color, everyone knows that. I want to regain that. At one point I had a style all my own. Even when mixing in trends, I always stayed very true to myself. 

This outfit is a good way to get back on that track. I usually only photograph my outfits when I'm in heels. In reality, I hardly wear heels anymore because I work so much. 

I'm loving this outfit because I'm wearing my favorite print, cheetah, from H&M. Along with an orange skirt c/o amiclubwear, and my new go to chunky sandals from H&M Divided Black. 

Until next time...
