Let’s Talk About Shoes Baby!

(Yes my title did have some Pitch Perfect inspiration behind it, it is totes aca perfect!)

I’ve had a splendid, absolutely marvelous, darling idea today. I’m going to talk about every girl’s best friend, besides diamonds, shoes! The right pair of shoes as we know it can make or break a look. I don’t know about you, but I rather be making looks than breaking them. It’s no secret that gladiator sandals are on fleek this summer…yes I used a word that I normally think is so silly, but yolo! Haha. I personally am such a fan of this trend. These shoes are so easy to pair with everything and you don’t always have to opt for the normal heel with an outfit. Heels look cute, but I hate wearing them. So sue me! I like to be comfortable and that’s my motto I live by. Trendy and fashionable meets comfort. I do also love how there is not only one kind of gladiator shoe, there really is something for everyone. You do not even have to do the full gladiator, you could just do the up to the ankle one. Let’s take a look:

This look is from JustFab and these are just so fabulous. It really gives a certain je ne sais quoi to a clean and simple look. These shoes are available at JustFab for $39.95 and are called “Marcelino”. I’d go buy them if I were you.

Then for the bold and eccentric we have the “Lennon”. There’s not much to say about these beauties other than, “Where do I swipe my card?” These are priced at JustFab for $44.95.

Now here is some more inspiration for outfit pairings: (I do not take any credit)

I am in love with this look, I would wear this on the daily. So simple, sleek, and chic! If you are looking to buy something like the dress featured I would check out my favorite store American Eagle. I will provide a link to a dress that is almost like the one above, but search through their site. It is so addicting. Love Love Love!

Late Night Nonsense~The Start of Something New!

So I’m laying in bed with nothing to do on a wednesday night, which is now an early thursday and I have this sudden urge to write. But I want to start this new addition to my blog called, “Late Night Nonsense.” Every thursday or friday night, I want to designate a time where I can talk to you guys, who are still out there, about anything and everything. The nights might vary due to my work schedule, but it’s summer and I am going to make some time.

My school year has been quite crazy and it was hard keeping a balance between work, schoolwork, and my social life. I’m not gonna lie, my social life came first most of the time, but I really need to change that for next semester. I haven’t been living up to my full potential lately, is anyone with me? My mind has been all over the place lately and I just can’t seem to figure out what my calling in life is. I really am questioning everything I’m doing. I am hating all of my English classes I’ve been taking and I sadly came to terms with the fact that I am not meant to be an English major anymore. Now I have this urge to want to work for the CIA. I know right! NewBeautyGuru meets agent! Haha no, but I want to try and pursue international relations/political science. I took a political science class my first semester and strangely liked it. I’m not so into politics and maybe it was the teacher who made the class enjoyable, but why not give it a shot? I am in college, a time when I am supposed to be free to experiment. I just hate going to my advisor and telling him all of these changes I want to make because I change my mind so often.

Last night I was talking with my mother and I had gotten a text from one of my friends who needed advice. My mom quickly told me that my true calling is counseling. At first I laughed, but then I realized I am pretty great at giving advice even if the other person does not want to hear it at the time. And then I realized again that I hate psychology with a passion, and I need to stop dating psych majors. Seriously! Every guy I have been on a date with has been a psych major, do I have a sign on my back saying “All psychology majors come date me!?” I don’t think so, and it has not been working for me either. At this point, I am done with guys and need to focus on bettering myself. Guys will always be around weither we want them around or not.

Why is figuring out one’s path so difficult? I wish there was a book that outlined everyone’s futures to give us all some relief from stressing out over everything. At this point in my life I am unsure of every little thing, which bothers me so much. I have always been so sure of myself and it’s all been blown to pieces. At least I know I am not the only one who feels this way and I just have to have faith that it will all work out. God has a plan, I have to sit back and try to enjoy the ride.

What else do I do when I am just laying in bed? It’s only fitting that I am listening to some get up and dance in your underwear kind of music! I’ll link my favorite songs, that may or may not get me out of my bed and make me dance shamefully to it in my pj’s below. But you guys didn’t need to know all of that, I’ll just give you the music.

You are going to want to listen to all of those songs, my favorites are 1,3, and 4.

Goodnight Loves!

What Goes On In My Head…

Screen Shot 2014-03-16 at 6.30.05 PM

Today, as I was watching some of my favorite TV shows with my mom, I started wondering off in my own mind. Thinking about my past and how it has brought me to the beginning of my future. I decided that I am going to stay close to home, where I currently live, and attend the University of Connecticut, Go Huskies!! Actually I will be getting my own apartment, I can’t wait to blog about that! I am so thrilled about this new journey I am about to face. I cannot believe in a few months I will be a college student 🙂

I have gone through a lot in my past. Bullying has been a big part of that. People made me feel like I was not worth it, they made me feel horrible about myself, and I got to a point where I almost started believing them. For some time I kept running away from my problems, but I knew I could never really run away from something that still was haunting me. I don’t want this post to be some sob story but more of a motivation and inspiration to some. Up until high school, bullying, was always there. I was never pretty enough or skinny enough, but did that even really matter anymore? High school has been a blessing in  my eyes, it has opened my heart to new experiences and cultures, and most of all I started to find myself. I have friends who accept me for who I am, who believe in bigger and better things for me. How have I been so lucky?

Since my past has left a scar on my heart, today I asked myself if the great things that are all coming together now, is something that I deserve. I almost had to slap myself to get that thought out of my head. I deserve to feel HAPPY, WORTHY, and DESERVING of everything that is coming my way. I have worked my butt off, not literally, yet 🙂 But in all sincerity, I can be my own worst enemy, but look where I am. Most people don’t make it as far as I have gotten and I am truly grateful. I have opened my heart to a new spiritual journey with none other that God himself, which I think has made me realize that I am worthy of what I receive. If you do not believe in God, it is okay, I don’t want to persuade you to believe in anything you do not want to, but I am just revealing more of who I am. Over the past couple of weeks he has shown me to forgive the people who have hurt me, and they might even be reading this post. I am willing to move on because I am at a point in my life where I do not want to look back at my past and be filled with hatred towards others, it just is not healthy. I am a lover not a fighter 🙂

The picture I have attached to this post is truly what I want each and every one of you’s to do. Yes I did purposely use the word you’s, wait, is that even a word? Well…whatever, it fit what I was trying to do. Which was trying to lighten the mood a little bit. You must be glad you came inside my head for just a while, huh? lol. (That was meant to be a tad sarcastic, and a bit of a metaphor, haha). Be HAPPY!! What makes me happy is writing and making others happy, I hope you all truly grasp that. This blog is supposed to be a mixture of who I am with a twist of fashion and music mixed in. I have not been good at keeping y’all updated, but you know I always come back. It breaks my heart if I am not able to write something for all of you. I pledge to try and keep you all happy, if you all pledge to be happy and stay strong in whatever is bringing you down because you will get through it, heck! I did 🙂 I hope you enjoyed reading this rant and I might be doing this type of writing more often, so keep posted, comment and like it up:)!!

With much love always,

Simply Comfy Chic!!

Screen Shot 2014-01-21 at 5.36.48 PM

Channel your inner fashion side by rocking this just put together look. There’s no doubt that pastel colors are in right now, they have been seen on the runway from Sonia Rykiel to Christian Dior. Who knew that these simple colors could add some chic-ness to our everyday looks? Yes I did make up my own new word, chic-ness, I hope nobody has said that before 🙂  This outfit is the evolution of, “OMG I WANT WHAT YOU’RE WEARING!!” Can anyone say Holy Bubblegum? Bubblegum WoW! This jacket adds the right amount of pop to this outfit, it reminds me of the yellow/mustard colored,Olivia Pope designed, Kim K jacket that I absolutely loved on her, except this is simply pink!

Anyone remember the Pink Ladies from Grease. I love that movie, but when you think about it, it reminds you of the Pink Ladies right?

The grey sweater just adds the perfect amount of color to contrast with the bubblegum coat. Who says you cannot wear white jeans in January? White jeans make this outfit look simply put together, and for a “monochrome match” add a pair of white converse to “elongate the legs.” Converse can almost pair with anything. My next purchase is a pair, it’s crazy to think I don’t have them in my closet. I would also keep the bag a neutral color like the one in the picture so it does not overdo the whole look.

Hope you enjoyed!

Oh! Before I forget I have some exciting news to share, I got accepted to the college I wanted in England! How cool is that! I am ready for a great year, love you all 🙂

If you are into great deals on fashion check out stylemined.com they are often on extra promoting different deals. I snagged myself a bag and some sunnies, what will you get?

Football Fashion, or American Football Fashion (For Others not in USA)

Football Fashion, or American Football Fashion (For Others not in USA)

What does a guy like more than seeing a girl in a jersey? IDK, well maybe I do, but not the point lol. Some might not know that you can make this look very trendy, while also being casual. I would totally wear a sweatshirt and sweatpants instead of trying to be fashionable all the time, but there is a right way to do it.

Step 1: Make sure you buy a women’s slim jersey, or whatever you really want, it’s not as bulky and it’s easier to pair with other pieces.

Step 2: Layer, Layer, Layer. As you see in the photo, there is a great representation of this. Remember you want to be comfy and trendy, but not like you just rolled out of bed and threw random pieces on.

Step 3: Accessorize!! Since there is a lot of layering involved, I would stick with simple earrings, a neutral tone bag, booties, boots, or even wedges, maybe even a hat or a beanie. You can basically pair your look with anything, only you know what looks best.

Step 4: Have fun with it, this should not be a chore. Be creative, be bold, and I know you can do it if your a crazy fan of some sports like me. Does anyone else ever yell at the TV?

To get off topic a bit, let me tell you what sports I like, and remember I am in America for all you non- American readers. I like football, go Patriots! But I actually like watching soccer more, I think it is more intense, don’t judge lol. I love the Olympics you can find me watching almost any sport. When the US Open was on maybe a month ago, I don’t remember, I really got into tennis. I even used to play tennis for a little while. So there you have it, I hope you enjoyed, any questions? Comment below, and no I don’t only watch football so I could look at the players bosoms (behinds), I couldn’t fine a good word for that, but lol did I just say that? Well maybe there’s some truth to it 🙂 Goodbye for now!!
