SUMMER NIGHTS WITH ASOS

Summer — I actually hate it.

 

I say so every year it comes along because every year I still mean it! It’s just not for me. And if it was up to me, I seriously would consider relocating to cooler land just for these few months! People think I’m crazy but my reasons are solid (bugs, scorching heat, sweat). Who likes that?

 

Like, the day I shot this look, it was so hot. Thankfully, I have a nice glow in these photos but really, I think I was on the brink of glistening in perspiration lol. Shout out to my glands for holding back for the sake of these photos!

MAKIN’ ME BLUSH

Blush. It isn’t just for beating that pretty face of yours, ladies! And it’s not just the tint your cheek takes on when embarrassed, flustered or flattered.

 

For such a subtle color, blush has taken over our favorite shops and maybe even our own closets in such a bold way. And, I sure don’t mind! Pink is my favorite color so any rendition of the shade makes me feel so happy inside! Isn’t it crazy how what you adorn yourself with can affect your mood? The color is such a perfect play on youth and femininity — wearing it even brings out the playfulness in me.

 

Here’s a quick fun fact: the physical act of blushing is universal. So, wearing blush must be, too! (No, I am not a scientist.)

HYPE OVER STRIPES

Stripes have become a staple in every fashion lover’s closet.

 

They’re simple yet bold and incredibly easy to style. Maybe that’s why they’re my absolute favorite print.  I hate cheetah, I hate leopard (or anything animal print for that matter). But stripes? I can do. They’ve become the new black, a neutral, a major wardrobe key!

KEEPING YOUR VISION | GRADUATION DAY

Girrrrrl, it’s crazy what a vision will have you do to get to where you want to be. Let me tell you the story of how I got to this location for this shoot!

 

I was in the car with my friends on our way back to school and we passed by this monument-looking site in Princeton. I was so drawn to the structure, it’s etherealness and could envision myself doing a style post there for graduation. And so, I did. I had tunnel vision when it came to this location. I knew without a doubt that my shoot was happening there.

 

I woke up extremely early, got dressed and with my brother and Medge in tow, we headed out to the location so I could take photos there before my ceremony. I thought it wouldn’t be a big deal since the site was on the way to my school but man, was I wrong.

NAUTICAL FEELS WITH BANANA REPUBLIC

Nautical, navy — whatevs! You catch my drift. Omg, get it…drift?! Banana Republic sent me this beautiful dress and blazer and I got the sailor “vibe.” I was trying to think of something creative for the title of this post (you know how I do). But got any ideas?

 

Wait, actually. As I wrote that initial paragraph, I just figured out what I’ll be writing about! Going with the motions. (Think waves and all that ocean deep stuff.)

GRADUATION INSPO | SHOPBOP

Guys! My graduation is Friday!!!

 

Yes, yes — I’m graduating! I’m saying this to you all but I can’t quite believe it myself. The years really just happened so fast. It feels like I recently just began this blog in a COM class I had freshman (or sophomore) year. I’m seeing my friends from high school graduate college and I’m just like, “this is so surreal.” So maybe that’s part of the reason I took so long to find a graduation outfit haha. Well, that, and the fact that I had to focus on finals first. Priorities, priorities.

LET’S TALK DENIM | SHOPBOP

Denim denim denim.

 

I hope you said that in your best Super Mario Bros. voice!

 

Let’s talk about the trend, thoughhhh. It’s been around for decades and from the looks of it, it does not seem like it’s going anywhere!

 

However, with our evolving fashion, there have been upgrades. Upgrade such as these! Patchwork, double-breasted, light, dark, faded – you name it. Even if you’re not a denim girl (like me), there’s one that best fits your personal style.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER

Welcome to the new Adorned in Armor! Did ya miss me?

 

I know I missed you all! Your sweet comments and reposts and likes and all that good stuff serve as major motivation to keeping this site of mine up and running, so as I was away, I was all like “what is life?” Haha okay, it was more like, “what is my site?” Throughout the transformation, I took the time to reevaluate its purpose and figuring out ways to bring about my vision. One thing that has remained the same is the authenticity. Me to you and you to me. So thank you for being real and supporting me throughout this journey.
