Streamlined. The moment I spotted these amazing, printed shorts at Zara while in Miami a couple months back, I knew I couldn't leave the store without them. The streamline cut, high waisted design, and intricate pleats gave the silhouette such an interesting flare and we don't even have to talk about that print. I have never really been into florals (for spring ... Groundbreaking) but the size and watercolor execution of this one had me sold. I can see this piece being styled so many different ways, one of which is an all white ensemble which I'll have to try next. 

If you are looking for a fun, eclectic piece to add to your closet these shorts are definitely something you should think about. They are still on the website! Minus the crop top, the elements in this outfit could easily be portrayed in a formal or business look, with no boredom-factor.

I can't get enough of these cut-out boots. I'll have to dedicate a whole post to them soon. Ah, another night of blogging at 1:30am. Goodnight.

I needed more than a trim. As I embark on a new, exciting chapter of my life I thought it was time to embrace a new look. I have been drooling over collarbone-length locks lately and I finally decided to make an appointment and just do it. As cliche as it sounds, my hair has always been very special to me and acted probably as somewhat of a safety net. 

I've always been the boy with long hair.

With new destinations and new goals for my life, I jumped into the salon chair and said, "Chop it off and dye it black." (Well, almost black). I am absolutely loving my new hair and I encourage anyone who is thinking about this length, or any hair change for that matter, to dive head first (pun intended) and do it!

So many exciting things happening and I couldn't be happier to have you alongside me for the journey. Thank you for all your support.

Make sure to follow my daily endeavors on Instagram, if that's something you're into.

Now that I have officially graduated high school, I have much more time to create content for you. So I will see you very soon!
