A Step-by-Step Process to Finding my Aesthetic and what that Really Means

Aesthetic. With social media on a constant rise and an increase in careers available in social media, all I ever seem to hear about is aesthetic. It's used to describe your feed, style, and your everyday life. It's a word everyone uses (including myself) but I'm not sure if I even have a full understanding of what it really means. I mean, does everyone have one? If not, how do I get one? Is it something hidden inside me that I have to discover through enlightenment? All I know is that one thing all successful blogs and influencers have is a strong and clear aesthetic. Perhaps if I found mine, it would turn my blog from a hobby to a career (like we all dream of).

The Four Summertime Shoes You NEED this Summer

At the age of four I was obsessed with The Wizard of OZ. It was a colorful fairytale with the beautiful Judy Garland as its protagonist who wears the cutest blue picnic dress (um hello current 2018 trend of picnic dresses!). But most of all, it's plot loosely focuses on the ownership of a gorgeous pair of ruby slippers that held magical powers beyond just making my young self drool on the couch. As most little kids do, when there's a character you love, it's inevitable that you will be dressing as that character for Halloween. And that is exactly what I did. But most importantly, I remember having the ruby slippers of my dreams, which I believe has evolved into my unexplainable LOVE for shoes!

The 70's Chic Inspiration You've Been Waiting For

Model: Alicia Styled by: Alicia Ward Photographed by: Sarah Grace (Me!)

History repeating itself is a known fact within the fashion industry. Currently we've been seeing a recurring 90's theme between the endless supply of fanny packs and clunky dad sneakers. (Find how I styled a 90's look here!) However, with returning styles and tends, they aren't exactly the same as they used to be. They're revamped and have our 21st century style added to them. Although the rest of us love following trends and find them new and stylish, those whose personal style has always been a specific decade are experiencing their worst nightmare.

What to Do with Your Summer if You're Not Going on Vacation

There's nothing worse than sitting at home in your pj's thinking about how all your friends are going on vacation and basking in the sun in their sun dresses. Especially in the age of social media, no vacation goes without a post making your feed flooded with people making memories, not working, and having fun. However, in order to have fun and enjoy the sun (ew, rhyming) you don't have to travel far away to some tropical paradise.

Earth Day Outfit (But Not Really)

Despite the title, the outfit featured in this post can be worn any day of the year (though it might be considered too hot or too cold for certain seasons). I, however, just happened to be wearing it on Earth Day, thus making it an Earth Day outfit. As one would expect, the weather on this particular day was perfect and my first encounter with warm-ish weather. So, what better way to celebrate our Earth other than basking in all of its natural beauty with a coffee in hand (per usual)? Not to mention, I made a delicious breakfast that morning that will be randomly (awkwardly??) inserted at the end of this post because I take great pride in my culinary abilities and obsession over balsamic glaze. Obviously with that information, you're just dying to read ahead and see the photos that await you. Or at least I'm hoping you are. Hehe :)

Outfits for Spring Break/Summer that Don't Require You to Take Off Your Swim Suit

Recently I've been aching for the warm weather that hasn't quite come yet. Although I adore my jean jacket, I'm ready to put it away and break out the swimwear and mom shorts because hell yeah! Summertime! Not mention, I seem to have better luck thrifting in the summer. So, here's a few outfit ideas for those of you that are in spring break paradise or getting a head start on summer.
