"The Science of Selling Yourself Short"

DSC_1276 You know what this background means? I'm back in Arizona! I wore this outfit to a family party on Saturday, and couldn't resist taking some photos in front of the amazing flowers in my backyard. Every year my parents and I get really excited about these flowers, so it's kind of a fun tradition to pose in front of them. Although most of this outfit is very simple, I love the big punch this skirt adds for a spring event!

Today's outfit track is "The Science of Selling Yourself Short" by Less Than Jake because I love the upbeat tune. Listen along here while you view!

OOTD_86: Studio Review

DSC_0762 Today was my mid-review for studio, so I always like to wear a dress or skirt, and wear something that is professional but still exciting. This dress is a go to in my closet because it's a neutral but it still bold and graphic. The cut of it really suits being paired with an oversized blazer like this one. You may remember this outfit a while back as well where I styled this dress for a school day. Finally, it's great to add a decisive pop of color to your outfit when making a presentation, so I finished off my look with this bright statement necklace I made a while back. This was a piece of a small "collection" my friend Ariana and I worked on a while back, which I plan to share more on later. This quarter we have been experimenting with other students and our professor with digitally fabricated jewelry which is really exciting!

Don't forget you can always quickly change up your look with your hair! I tried a middle part today because I feel like my hair is finally long enough, and I really liked how it streamlined my look.

DSC_0728 This weekend I've spent hours on hours in studio working towards the mid-review I have on Wednesday, so when taking breaks to meet up with my friends for lunch, I seized the opportunity to change out of my sweats and put on something cute! I was looking for an outfit to style this new satchel I picked up at Target which I eyed forever until I snagged it for 8 bucks! It was the perfect match for this summery dress from an inexpensive store at home. The weather this weekend was so warm and sunny--it put me in the best mood!

I also love how versatile this dress is. Another one of my favorite ways to style it can be seen in this outfit post.

DSC_0551 Today I wanted to show how I transitioned the same dress from day to night, but when both looks are very casual and involve a lot of basics. The first outfit is what I wore to walk downtown to my favorite coffee shop and study, and the second shows how I added some extra layers for going to studio later in the night.

Although I wore a lot of red in my past two outfit posts, I am finding that I am more drawn to wearing neutrals now that my hair is a bolder color. I really like how the color looks against denim and black. I'll have to experiment with neutrals more in the next few weeks!

Since it was dark while I wanted to shoot this, I ended up in my room. However, I don't mind this because I like showing aspects of my space and one of the latest painting I've been working on!
