Thanks Mom

Hope all the mothers out there had a day full of being spoiled, good eating, and lots of love. As for my own mother, I can’t thank her enough for her kindness, strength, and humour. They definitely deserve this kind of love more than once a year!

As for my festivities, my sister and I made my mother breakfast in bed then we had a lovely little lunch with one of my grandmas including some delicious “milk and cookies” cake and then followed to take my other grandma out to dinner at The Keg. All in all, not a bad day for me either, but all our love was definitely showered on them.

Kept my outfit neutral, comfortable, and simple. Received this lovely necklace from my grandmother as a late birthday present and put it on instantly. Still obsessed with these mules, definitely one of my best staple purchase items.

One day I will remember to remove that pesky hair tie from my wrist!!!

How were your weekends? Have you started summer dressing yet? Is it warm yet where you live? Let me know!

Miley Cyrus Stuns in New Malibu Video – Get the Looks Here

Just came across Miley’s new video for Malibu after the press circus surrounding it’s release. I really liked the light airy, imagery of the video – such a far leap from most of Cyrus’ previous content it almost didn’t seem genuine. But then you hear the lyrics, and she full on admits “I never would’ve believed you if three years ago you told me I’d be here writing this song”. Neither would most of her fans. I am a fan of this new voice (over her last one anyways) and cannot wait for the rest of the album to come out.

I am taking her hair to be more of a metaphor than a fashion statement. Growing out her natural hair at the roots to replace her bleach blonde locks seems like an obvious parallel to her current career direction. Most of her hair looks are messy (a bit too messy for my taste, but definitely beach-y and natural, which I can appreciate) and down or simple, almost juvenile hairstyles like pigtails and braids. All to frame her almost bare face to which only a slight shimmery shadow and mascara are added.

All the clothing she wore was neutral toned – either white, cream, or grey. She kept the outfits stylistically simple with few accessories but they all worked perfectly on her. They all connected to one another through their softness – a contrast to her harsh image in the past. They featured gorgeous delicate lacework or warm and cozy knits. Shop some of my similar picks below. Love how these looks warmed us up to Miley, while still remaining in the background and letting her music and natural beauty shine.

So what do you guys think? Are you a fan of the Miley comeback (I grew up in the Hannah Montana generation so I’ll always be rooting for her…)? Did you like the look of her video? Let me know!

Newest Member of the Two Decades Club

Celebrated my 20th birthday this past weekend and thought it would be fun to reflect on my first two decades with 20 things I have learned.

20th birthday night out outfit

  1. Say yes to as many things as possible, but not more than you can handle.
  2. Try to leave everyone with the impression of being kind and courteous. The world is smaller than you think.
  3. But don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself and tell others how you feel.
  4. Grades can be the bane of your existence, don’t let them stress you out too much.
  5. Don’t study hard, study smart. Limit distractions, plan to do a bit each day, and DON’T START THE NIGHT BEFORE (still learning this one)…
  6. Sometimes week night dollar beers (or happy hour) is necessary. Plan accordingly for the next day.
  7. Sometimes staying in and watching Netflix over homework is necessary. Don’t be afraid to give yourself a break every now and again.
  8. Where you live or who you live with defines so little about your friendships. Decide who matters and invest time in those relationships.
  9. Wearing a nice outfit to school or for an interview can change your entire outlook. Feel good in what you wear, be confident and most importantly, be COMFORTABLE.
  10. All relationships have the potential to become toxic. Listen to those around you and don’t become blinded by the situation you are in.
  11. Your parents know a whole lot more than you, but not everything.
  12. If you wouldn’t want your grandparents and teachers to see it, don’t post it.
  13. Try not to talk negatively about people. Technology can make your words last forever.
  14. Pour all of yourself into what you love, and what you love to do.
  15. That being said, venture out from the path you are on and try new things, classes, etc. You never know what you are missing out on.
  16. Don’t pass up on a photo op because of you not looking your best. You’ll want those memories later.
  17. Save your money for rainy days and important things, but also spend some if you come across things you want. Treat yo’self.
  18. Always have a kick-ass playlist ready to go for car jams and impromptu pre’s at your place. My Spotify is constantly updating.
  19. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Your life isn’t perfect so your Instagram doesn’t have to be. Post the pics you like, and keep them, you’ll want to look back at them.
  20. You don’t have to have a million friends to celebrate with, or a million followers to like your posts. Sometimes you have a better time with a few close friends taking goofy pictures squished in your bathroom because the lighting is so great (see above pic) and posting them to remember how glad you were to turn 20 with all of them present.
