I hope you are having a great week! By now, I’m sure you have seen that Coachella has kicked off. Every year, I say that I will go next year…and while I still haven’t been yet, I usually dress in an outfit that I would wear at Coachella. So I’ve deemed myself as the Coachella Wannabe. One day, I will be there but until then, I’ll fake it, till I make it. This is one of my favorite jumpsuits to wear. There’s no blending in with the crowd with this bold statement. Here’s what I wore:
Scarf: Nordstrom’s Rack
Denim Jacket: New York & Company
Mixing prints can be a very fun way to personalize your outfit. There are different ways and variations to do this. If you’re new to the trend, start small. If you feel daring and advanced with this trend, go for it!
Sometimes, people look at me in a weird way when I’m wearing an outfit that has mixed prints. I know what they are thinking: “that girl obviously doesn’t know how to match her clothes.” The truth is, I know how but I don’t really care what others have to say about my style. You should be the same way with your personalized style. If it looks good on you and you feel like a rockstar wearing it, then don’t think twice about wha others are thinking! Here’s an example of how I mixed prints:
Jacket: Old Navy
High Waisted Jeans: Forever21

Am I the only one who feels like the weekends go by too quickly? It can be hard enjoying the weekend when you know you have busy week ahead of you. I usually find that when I take care of all my errands Saturday morning, it allows me to have time to actually enjoy my weekend. That’s exactly what I did yesterday. I took care of all of my errands: studying, writing papers, cleaning, and the dreaded post office.
While I was out, I noticed how its spring but yet 50 degrees. I’ve already completed a spring cleaning of my wardrobe but I kept a couple of sweaters in my closet just in case. I found this jacket on sale at Target. It gives me the perfect pop of color for spring while still keeping me warm. This sweater dress and jacket are the perfect balance for when you want to show a little skin but dress appropriately for the weather. Here’s what I wore in the chilly, not so spring-like weather:
Dress: Forever 21
Jacket: Who What Wear for Target
I think spring cleaning is so important! It can be overwhelming though. Over the years, I’ve simplified this process with some helpful tips. I completed my spring cleaning for my wardrobe with these tips in less than 30 minutes. I hope you will find these tips helpful:
1. Establish three piles- One pile for clothes you will keep in storage, another for the clothes you’re giving away and the third for clothes that need to be thrown out.
2. Start with one category and then move on to the next- Start with one category, meaning start with shirts and then move on to your pants. Don’t try to do everything all at once, it can seem really overwhelming.
3. Decide what to keep, throw away and put in storage- You know if something should be thrown away. Don’t hold on to anything that has holes, rips or tears. Let it go! When I was younger I would hate throwing away clothes because I would always think “what if I can’t replace it?” Then my mom would say to me “You have to make room for something better by getting rid of the old”. Think of it like that. You’re just making room in your wardrobe for something better. If you haven’t worn something in the year and it’s still in wearable condition, you need to give it away. Let someone else have it. I usually go to Goodwill so I know the clothes are going to a good place. You can also go to a consignment store to make money. Keep the item in storage if you’ve worn it and it’s in good condition. If you’re storing something, check to see if it needs to be treated or cleaned before storing it away. If it does, take it to your local dry cleaners.
I usually repeat these steps for my accessories, shoes and jackets too. So, spring cleaning doesn’t have to be this long drawn out process. Good luck!
