This week I set out with the intention of only focusing on the things that make me happy. I am going to carry this intention throughout every week to remember to always look at the things I am grateful for, and to continue to be positive and full of life at all times. This intention inspired this week’s blog post, here are a few things that genuinely make me happy!
I have always loved the therapeutic advantages and the power of writing. There is something about the ability to express myself by just writing my thoughts that I absolutely love. I am both an introvert and extrovert, the introvert in me is always in my thoughts and I need a way to release them in a progressive way. My thoughts have their home in between the papers in my journals. Writing is also a passion of mine, hence why I love this blog.
I am at a phase in my life where I want to become the best version of myself possible. I want to self-heal, grow, and radiate self-love. Self-help books have become my favorite way of educating myself on all of these things. I especially love reading books on becoming the healthiest woman mentally, emotionally and physically.
I have fallen in love with watching the sky in general, the colors, sun, moon, stars, clouds all fascinate me. I love watching the sky change, sunsets in particular are one of my top favorite things to watch. Watching the colors of the sky look like paint on a canvas, while the sun dances with everything around it. Feeling the warm summer sun on my skin while the day turns to night is a total summer vibe. We live in such a beautiful world and I love appreciating every bit of it.
Circle sunnies give me either 70’s or 90’s vibes and I love both eras for their fashion influence. They give such a chic look that makes for a very fashion forward look. The ones I am wearing have a tortoise shell detail on the top of the lenses and that is my favorite detail. I also love the minimal gold details on the glasses as well. These are definitely another one of my thrifted treasures.
Lately, I have been in love with wearing sneakers. I think it’s the comfort I love the most because I have been walking and exploring around a lot this summer. They also can make for really dope looks, I have been having fun styling them in different looks for fashion forward outfits. I especially love elevated sneakers with different textures and prints, the ones I am wearing have a snake skin textile along most of the shoe. It can be used as a statement piece or an added fun textured detail.
I love graphic tee’s and styling the masculine into feminine. I also love oversized shirts, the one I am wearing is one of my favorite graphic shirts I own. Band tee’s have also been a fav of mine to wear, music has such an influence in the fashion industry and band tee’s are such a must for my musical soul.
I had mentioned in my last blog post I have been wearing scarves in my hair. I love the fun prints and colors you can add to an outfit with the simple addition of a scarf. I love either wearing them in my hair as a headband or hair-tie, or I like wearing them around my neck. They can make an outfit look unique, fun, and different.
Hoop Earrings & Chokers
Accessorizing is always super fun and I love jewelry. My go-to jewelry pieces are a pair of hoop earrings and a choker. Playing with different sizes and colors can really take your look to the next level.
By now, if you have been reading my blog for awhile you know my obsession with turquoise rings. I wear them with EVERYTHING, it creates my statement look and they just look so bad-ass. They also remind me of my home town which is another reason why I love them so much.
Heels are my go-to shoe, I feel the most confident in a pair of heels. I am quite short so heels give me that height and elevation to my outfits. I wear them pretty much every day depending on what I am doing or where I am going. They also play into my style of creating masculine looks into feminine. The way I styled my over-sized tee shirt with a pair of heels would be an example of this styling trick.
Let me know some of the things that make you happy, comment down below.
