Quote of the Day

Rather than just dropping in a quote, I’ve been elaborating on why a lot of these quotes really speak to me. Yes, this one might be simple, but I think a lot of people have a hard time grasping this concept.

In fact, I’m sure a lot of people misinterpret this. Expectations and standards are two different things, and I think people get confused by the two. When you have standards, you know what you want for yourself and you attract based on the energy and the mindset you give back to people. That’s where appreciation comes in. Positive things happen to positive people, and I can attest to that.

When you expect certain things from people all the time, you’ll likely be disappointed constantly. When you imagine a situation playing out in an exact way, you’ll likely be frustrated when it doesn’t come to fruition.

When it comes to expectations, you can only control one person and that’s yourself. You can choose to stay frustrated because life didn’t go as planned, or you can try to learn from mistakes or mishaps. Life sort of just happens, but your character is more so defined by how you react.

Mix and Match Your Closet

Today, I’m going to be talking about revamping your closet without actually spending anything, which is something I’ve been trying to do more of lately.

I am the worst at packing. I overthink all my outfits and usually forget something essential to make a look work. Over the weekend, I wore this outfit, which wasn’t planned at all.

I forgot to pack the proper skinny jeans to wear with this hoodie and a blouse to pair with these lightweight trousers. I decided to try to go for a athleisure look, and ya know what? I actually really like this look.

Before you go shopping, maybe try making your closet feel new again by mixing some pieces together. Try pairing those old beat down overalls you were planning on throwing out with striped long sleeves or even a turtleneck. Wear a denim skirt with a hoodie. This is definitely a cool pairing. My mom even asked me if this came as a set.

After doing some major spring closet cleaning, I’m much more cautious about keeping my closet more concise and shopping smarter for pieces that you can mix and match more with so that it lasts longer. This hooded sweatshirt was $10 from H&M, and it’s pretty versatile. You can wear it with a jean or leather jacket or by itself all the time. These trousers were also from H&M, and I usually wear these with a cute dressy blouse or button up shirt.

Anyway, hope you liked this quick post. I also want to apologize to my poor brother who was in the bathroom while I was quickly doing a little photo shoot on self-timer 🙂

OOTD Summer Style

Here is my outfit from last Saturday. I wore a blue floral printed button down blouse from Marshall’s for $14.99. It had a cute little tie at the waist too for a more fitted casual look. I loved this color for the summer, and these matching tinted sunglasses from JCPenney were only $10.

For the summer season, I can be so lazy with my outfits because there is limited layering, but my goal is to really embrace the summer weather and go for more lightweight pieces like this top.

Throwback Thursday

It’s almost the weekend, so here is one of my favorite go to outfits to wear during the spring/summer season. This is my Dad’s actual army jacket, which I wear all the time because not only does it have family ties, but the oversized jacket look is stylish as well. These jeans are super old from Topshop, and I’ve had these converse for years now, but I liked how casual this outfit was for a weekend out and about.

Also, if you have time to enjoy a margarita, the summer is the perfect time, so treat yourself! Hope you liked this quick post!
