"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!

HOW I STYLE_Vests for Spring + Video!

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADEEDGEjcUY&w=560&h=315]

I filmed this video with my iPhone over the past couple of weeks because I have noticed how much vests are becoming a staple of my spring wardrobe. I love how they add a layer to your outfit, without making you too warm. Check out the video and I have also included photos with outfit details below if you are curious!

OOTD_91 "Cactus in the valley"

DSC_0917 I've recently found that I'm having trouble making my outfits interesting and have depth as the days get warmer because I'm not able to layer as much as I'd like. The perfect solution to this problem is a vest. The cut of it still leaves you cool, but you've added some dimension to your outfit as well. I have 4 vests in my closet (3 of them DIYed!) that I think will be getting a lot of wear in the coming months.

The track for today's outfit post is "Cactus in the valley" by Lights, whose music I have featured on here before in this outfit post. Listen along here while you view!

OOTD_89 + Haul Video!

DSC_0859 I have finally found a pair of camo skinnies! I was searching everywhere for some and I'm glad I waited because I really like the detailing on these ones from Forever 21. These pants are really lightweight which is going to be great for the warmer months ahead. Since there is a stripe down the side, I wanted to pair them with a dressier shoe for a sportswear look. These shoes have a bit of a heel so it achieved that for me, and I definitely had in mind some fancier camo look such as this one that I love!
