A New Chapter

Hello world! I’m back. In the time that I have been gone a lot has happened. Some good, some bad, but I want to share it all with you guys! A few of the events will have their own post so I wont get into too many details here. So, lets get started. Today will be a little over two months since my last post. In that time I have travel to 2 different states, moved again (kind of), got out of a relationship, and really started my journey of self love/care.  These past two months gave me a much needed break and clarity on where I want to be and what I want to be doing.

Even though I wasn’t posting while I was away I was still working on content for you guys! I got the opportunity to meet an amazing guy, Geoff, who gave me the chance to get out of my comfort zone a little. Geoff is an up and coming photographer in the Denver, Colorado area. Geoff is a friend of a friend and very kindly agreed to wander around Denver taking photos of me. That was something I’ve never experienced before. For the most part I like to stay behind the camera, but the more I practice self love, the more I realize that there is nothing to be scared of. All the pictures on this post (plus many more to come), were taken by him. I would love for everyone to go check out more of his stuff! His Instagram is: captured_rooster. Please go over and show him some love.

 

 

 

 

One of the more difficult things that I went through during these past two months was my breakup. I had been with my ex for 2 1/2 years. Breakups are never easy, especially when you live together and have created a whole life together. It can be devastating. I don’t want to get into too much detail on it, but I would like to say that even though at the time it felt like everything around me was crumbling down, I know that in the end I will be stronger because of it. I think it also took that experience to really push me to put myself first. I want nothing but happiness for him, as well as myself. I will continue to turn a negative into a positive.

I have so many ideas on posts I want to write but I would also love your input! Please comment below telling me what type of things you like to read most! It can be hauls, DIY, product reviews, favorites, day in the life, etc. I can’t wait to share all of my ideas with you guys!

What’s in my Bag?

This coming up weekend I will be going on a little getaway with my boyfriend and another couple. Now I am known for over packing, so this time around I planned out all my outfits and I thought I’d share those outfits with you all. The weather is going to be hot during the day, so when we get there I might alter these ideas slightly.
In my Bag:
SMXLL

 Day 1
 The drive to Denver, check into our hotel and go out on the town. Depending on the weather, I might ditch the cardigan during the day and just go for the tank and shorts. This outfit is perfect for a quick day to night change. Just add or remove the cardigan and you are ready for anytime.
Garments:
 Forever 21 tank top, Sophie Rule cardigan, Divided by H&M black pleather shorts, & no brand black booties
SMXLL

 Day 2
This is that day that all four of us have been waiting for. July 31st. Vans Warped Tour. We have been waiting all summer for this music festival! Ready by 8-8:30, go out to breakfast, & party hard all day long.
Garments:
The Story So Far band t-shirt (turned into a cropped tank top DIY style & bought at Hot Topic), Thrift store high waisted jeans (also turned into shorts DIY style), American Eagle braided belt, Vans Classic shoes (very old and very worn, but the perfect shoes for the occasion)
SMXLL

Day 3
On the third day we don’t have a real plan set. We check out in the morning and then have all day to do whatever we want. We threw around ideas and we might just walk around town some more, we could go to the Denver Zoo, or even just go see a movie. Either way this outfit can really be worn for anything. It’s cute and comfortable.
Garments:
Divided by H&M white dress, Micheal Kors purse, Divided by H&M maroon hat, Vans Classic shoes
SMLXL

 Extra
Because I am who I am, I packed an extra outfit. This can be worn at night if it gets a little too cold for shorts. I might wear it to dinner the second night we are there.
Garments:
No brand blue tank top, Gianni Bini pants, No brand black booties
Planing out these outfits have really helped me stay on track with what I need and what I don’t. Packing in advance also helps with my indecisive mind. It allows my to fully plan out what I want to take and there is always a few days to change my mind before I leave. They are pretty basic and can be switched around anytime during the trip, which I believe helps me with my over packing problem. Bringing basic colors and pieces that you can mix&match, makes more outfits than you think and can settle an indecisive mind. All of this (plus makeup & hair things) all fit into a medium sized duffel and is super easy to travel with.
