    Black + Grey: Why I Always Wear Neutrals

    I divided my closet into two sections: neutrals and colors. Though I love my bright red sweater from this post and my bright green skirt from my video, I can’t get enough neutrals! They’re simple, classic, and easy to wear.      OUTFIT DETAILS: Sweater (similar here) Skirt (love the zipper on this one) Shoes (here) Tote (similar here) Necklace (similar here) This outfit is a great example of why I love my neutrals. On its own, it’s stylish and functional. You can easily add a colorful scarf or patterned bomber for a bold detail. There are countless possibilities for how to style this, all because it’s a blank canvas. It goes without saying that…

    Gettin’ My Vlog On

    I love curling up in bed and watching vlog after vlog on YouTube. It’s like watching a movie, an escape into someone else’s world. My favorite fashion channel du jour is Ashley Brooke (for fashion and lifestyle). For all those vegan noms and fitness routines, I love Maddie Lymburner. As I did some research for my blog, I had so many ideas. I wanted more movement and the ability to show more outfits with each post or theme and realized I couldn’t go as in-depth as I wanted to only using my blog platform. I decided YouTube seemed like a great additional platform to try out. My Channel Outfit Details Hat (similar here) Floral Top…

    Plant-Based Granola Bars

    Why eat meals when you can snack?! I’m one of those people who could skip meals and snack all day. Granola has always been one of my favorites because I love love love that it’s sweet. I’m a sucker for anything sweet! As I mentioned in this post and this post, I’ve been following a plant-based diet. Still going strong and feeling great! This granola recipe is plant-based, oil-free, and packed with sweet (chocolatey) goodness. But beware: it’s addicting! Recipe: 1 cup steel cut oats 15 pitted Medjool dates 1/3 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut 1 tablespoon chia seeds 1/3 cup almond butter (I used smooth) Salt 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 cup…

    Checkered Shorts

    You know that feeling that comes over you when you see something in the store, and you know that you’re going to walk out with it?! Yeah, me neither… Just kidding! That’s exactly how I felt when I saw these checkered shorts on the rack; I knew they were going to be mine. OUTFIT DETAILS:  Shorts (here – under $20!) Shirt (here) Shoes (here, similar here) Bag (similar here) Earrings (here) Ok, if I’m being honest, I thought they were a skirt when I first saw them. I usually opt for skirts and dresses over shorts, especially when it gets into the summer. But, these totally won me over! I love how they’re structured…
