Photos taken by the lovely D’ana of Collections + Volumes.

I’m finally at a point where I’m really interested and comfortable with making illustration the focus of my style blog, and well, my life. This is something I want to write about a bit more in depth later, but for now I’ll let you know that you’ll be seeing far more illustrations on this blog. I’m so excited to finally be confident enough to put myself out there like this. I hope you all enjoy it!

Anyway, I must say that I absolutely love these pants and haven’t had the chance to wear them since it’s been so cold out up north. The print was perfect for Miami’s Fashion Happy Hour, which was hosted by D’ana of Collections + Volumes, high school classmate Veronica of Fiercely Thriftin’, and Maya of Alamodemaya.

I’m also in my new UNIF heels. They’re my first from them! I love them to pieces and can’t wait to style them with my UNIF Lore Hat. I have so many pieces that have yet to make it on the blog because of my absence…ahh! If you follow me on Instagram, you can find all my latest purchases, current projects, favorite songs, and other fun things!

It feels so good to be back, you guys. Blogging is my baby basically and it has been since I was 12 and I absolutely love this space and sharing it with you. I hope that you do feel the love that I pour into this thing because it really is one of my biggest joys.
