THE BRACELET TO END ALL BRACELETS


(photos taken with my laptop's webcam)
The love I have for this bracelet is infinite.The bright colored stones and the metallic hue of the bracelet has stolen my heart.The second I realized the bracelet had a chain attached to it that leads up the length of my hand and is attached to this bright ring..that's when I knew I would belong to this piece forever.I bought this bracelet at this little costume jewelry/legging/cheap jewelry store at this strip mall.Can you believe this gorgeous thing only cost me 10 dollars?!
I practically squealed in front of the cashier and once I noticed the price I immediately abandoned my shopping ban.
Have you ever witnessed a fashionable piece that left you amazed?Tell me about the last time you saw something in the store that made you gasp,squeal and or shimmy in happiness!

Personal Style Essentials:The Striped Dress


   Everyone has that one piece of clothing they consider a mandatory piece, such as a white t-shirt,dark denim skinnies, etc.What a lot of people don't know is that everyone has different essentials to their closet.What one person considers a necessity may be completely ignored by another.After looking through my wardrobe I've discovered my own personal style essentials.Allow me to introduce you to what I consider a style essential: the black and white stripe dress.
     The black and white striped dress is oozing with versatility.I came up with three different looks featuring this dress with ease!The white and black dress comes from Forever21,I was inspired to get it after seeing Janelle Monae's Q.U.E.E.N. music video.

   The first look focuses on the monochrome appeal as I pair it with this black and white color block varsity jacket.Playing with texture and print becomes the main concentration.

The T-Shirt Dress 2 Ways

I've been in brainstorm mood over this t-shirt dress.Typically when I wear this t-shirt dress it's with my light wash jeans, like in this previous post. I've been dying to switch up this outfit.I decided to remix the shirt by switching up the bottoms and some of the accessories.

I decided to pair the shirt with my dark green, black speckled jeans and this crossbody bag.I think the color of the pants makes this floral number look tough.

In this look I wanted it to look more polished so I added this skinny black belt to cinch in my waist somewhat.This interpretation is a lot more feminine as I concentrate more on building a silhouette.
I hope this post inspired you to look ar your clothing from another perspective and explore your style options.Don't become stagnant with your closet.Dare to switch up the old with the new and see what your experimentation gives birth to!

End of Summer,Skater Skirt LookBook!



    I had a fear and love of short skirts this Summer.I loved the feminity of a frilly skater skirt, but that love was stifled by my fear of accidentally mooning someone.The simplicity of the skater skirt was enchanting to me, so I bought 1...then another....then another and I'm eye-balling another one right now.There I was with all these skater skirts that would never make it out to the public.
   Fear and fashion don't mix.I decided to take a step towards getting over my fear of short skirts by doing and entire lookbook dedicated to them!I did three looks featuring an edgy cool appeal,a sports luxe inspired outfit and a super feminine color fused look below.All three skirts were on clearance at Wetseal.

The first look is all about minimlism.We've got a simple color scheme of black,white and grey.We're going to let the textures of this look do the work mixing this faux leather jacket and grey cotton skirt.

The second look features my favorite varsity jacket inspired sweater.I like the idea of blending the chunkiness of the sweater and the wide shape of the skirt compete with each other.


The third look screams Summer time!The daisy print skirt took over this Summer, why not add a fun neon crossbody bag to play on the yellow in the skirt.

I figure if I can post these looks for the internet to see, then it shouldn't be a problem for me to wear them outside.Which look would you wear?
If you're like me and have a lot of love for the skater skirt feel free to check out the tribute tag(that I recently created), on my fashion blog The SHTE Daily, here

It Took Me 20 Years


Heels via Rainbow, Pants and shirt via Sears

I turned 20 yesterday and although I had a lot of fun my birthday was bittersweet.I enjoyed my birthday but on the edges of my mind lied trouble.I thought I'd have more to my life by the age of 20.I'm supposed to have more friends,more experiences,more independence,more....everything.I expected more out of life after 20 years and it also made me realize time truly is flying by.

I began to panic and doubt myself immediately after celebrating my birthday.I was thinking to myself, "I'm not doing enough,I haven't achieved enougn,I keep making crap decisions".Then I realized what the real issue is.

I spend so much time living inside of my head rethinking everything that I haven't taken enough action and I've stunted myself out of fear of things going wrong.I've come to the conclusion that the reason I haven't done much(or am afraid to do much), is because I can't control the outcome.

I have to relinquish my desire to control the outcomes of life and simply trust I have what it takes to handle any and all consequences.Life is about taking chances and being an adult is about being responsible and confident in handling the outcomes,no matter what they maybe.

When I think of adulthood and no longer being teenaged, I always imagine people who have everything figured out.The reality is NO ONE has anything figured out.We're on a planet populated by a bunch of people pursuing their goals,making plans and in the mean time, winging it the best way they can.

Do More of What Makes You Happy


My t-shirt features my best friend(in my head),Iron Man.I got it for like 5 dollars online from Wetseal.


I truly understand now why it's so important to do the things that make you happy whenever you can.Summer went by soo fast, and you know what I spent it doing...working :(
I spent my Summer doing nothing but work and putting off this blog,putting off my writing,and YouTube channel simply because those things lost value in comparison to making money.

Just because those extracurricular activities don't make money doesn't mean I should of quit doing them.I've been miserable without a creative outlet.I need to specifically make time for my creative outlets and stick to them like I stick to my work schedule,because this is certainly unhealthy.
I am officially making my creative outlets a PRIORITY.

Me,Myself,Defined


    There's nothing like a monochromatic look with a splash of color to simplify the outfit picking process.Below, I'm sharing where I've been and why my posting has been so...sporadic.
Pants-Rainbow Shops
Shirt-Wetseal
Headband-Forever21
Bag-A local shop,I desperately need to get back to

         I haven't been blogging because I've been so stuck in my head the last few months.I let my circumstances define me,control me and it left me feeling like I lost my voice.  I felt stagnant and as if this position I have in life was going to last forever(especially with my birthday approaching,I'll be 20).
   I had an epiphany earlier this morning and was inspired to share. It would not be fair to myself, to simply allow one uncomfortable stage in my life to determine all of who I am as a person.I'm not going to let only one stage of my life define me, defining who I am is my responsibility.Deciding and determing who I am is a job only I can do, not my job,not my school, not my peers, not my friends,not even my family.
