acid denim

I found this denim jacket at LTrainVintage in Bushwick. It was 20 bucks and really adorable. But I learned a little something about falling in love with pieces at thrift shops: I need to start making sure things fit. I am a fashion rookie so I'm still learning, but it was hilarious because Lydia (my photographer) had to direct me so much so that this jacket didn't look like a balloon on me in the pictures. To be honest I don't think I'll ever actually wear it again for that reason. But feel free to recreate this look with a denim jacket that is actually your size! Another thought...I'll probably be re-thrifting this at l Train Vintage so feel free to go pick it up haha. Details below, love you!

texture menage

Before we talk outfit, let's talk the amazing photographer who I shot with on Saturday. Her name is Lydia Hudgens and she is such an artist. She brought everything to life! Go check out her amazing work at 

Now let's talk outfit. I was going for something a little funky but still wearable. I love the contrast of textures-- we've got flannel, fur, knit, and patent leather all at once. It was really fun to experiment and see how they all complimented each other. I was so warm in this outfit which is partly because the shirt dress (thrifted) is super heavy and insulated. If you want to winterize it even more, try some thicker leggings or tights and maybe a thermal underneath. Can't wait to show you guys these outfits in motion! Be on the lookout :D

Table for One: Westville

Saturday morning I had an amazing lookbook shoot in the Flatiron District and Meatpacking. I was starved when we finished so I headed over to the West Village to check out the eats. I found a small restaurant called Westville and decided to have brunch-- I ordered their baked challah bread french toast and some peppermint tea. The food arrived about 10 minutes later and it was so delicious. My total was less than 15 worth it! If you're ever in the area check it out for sure. I'll definitely be back to Westville for another delightful meal. I'm tempted to try more brunch items but maybe next time I'll get lunch or dinner. 

Love yaaa,

It's been an eternity since I've given you guys an update on my No Dating for One Year journey. It's been over for a few months but it's taken me so long to really figure out what to say. Check out the video above to hear about my journey...the ups and downs and how God's grace triumphed through it all. Love you all so much! Feel free to e-mail me with questions and stories at

Love you always,


the cool girl

 have you ever seen or read "Gone Girl"? remember when the psycho wife talked about the "cool girl"...the down for anything girl. the spontaneous, stylish, swagged out girl? ha! well, if she existed i think this is the outfit she would wear almost every day. here are some outfit details:
jacket: zara, tee: h&m, mom jeans: topshop, boots: dsw, hat: h&m, necklace: topshop


do you love God more than he loves you?

Do you love God more than he loves you? I know it sounds like a ridiculous question but without knowing it, I think a lot of us actually live as though we love God more than he loves us. 


fancy this

i adore this romper from century 21. the color is beautiful, flattering, and it's almost a year-round piece. some rompers don't look so great with tights underneath but this romper wears tights very well. i felt so fabulous in this outfit. it made me feel a little fancy even :). another favorite in this look is this h&m coat. it's so cool because it's almost shaped like modern-day cardigans, so you get the benefit of that shape but with the material and warmth of an actual coat. this coat also comes in grey so i think i'll be rocking them both this season!
