It's been a while...

Well the title says it all. It's been awhile. I did not mean to completely neglect My Blog. On the contrary I was really hoping to get back to my daily blogging. But then, life happened. I've been through more in this past year than some people have in a decade. You never really think about a blog as a person. It's really more than anything looked at as a quick go to for a quick read, inspiration, a way of passing time. But in reality there is and of course has to be a person behind it all, And being that it is a person, it can't and won't always necessarily be perfect. When I first started my blog I promised my subscriber's i'd be honest and open. Because my entire reason for creating a blog in the very first place was to give girls a blog that was more than just material things, more than just the daily OOTD, a blog with substance. A place that you'd be able to escape to when you needed something or someone to connect to. My blog has never been about flashy fashion trends and "The must have, break your bank, go in to debt just to make you feel better about yourself and look just like everyone else" piece of clothing. No my intentions were to show you that you are fine just the way you are. So embrace It, Love It, And be content with It. Because after all, I just like the rest of you am 'Just A Girl'.
Now let me give you all the short of the extremely long year I have had. For starters, I am no longer with the father of my child.  He and I were simply just not meant for each other. He lacked respect and I am much to full of self respect and love for myself and my child to settle for the old fashion way of thinking that to be a mother with no husband should be looked at as something to be ashamed of. It's absolutely not. And I  feel if more women felt this way, than the world would be a placed filled with young girls and women who would know the real and true meaning of self worth. We are no ones object. We are people and with that being said we should be treated with respect and valued regardless of our sex.  Now i'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit heartbroken. Because I was. It hurt and it did for a while, but then one day you wake up and it doesn't hurt anymore. Your heart is no longer aching and in fact it even starts to feel kind of nice, empowering even. I feel stronger and so much more free. Like this heavy weight was lifted off my shoulders. Because life is to short to simply just sit there and wither away. Now after this life changing view on the world  and my place in it, and the sudden realization that negatives can actually be turned into positives. I went absolutely mad with freedom and the power to make choices and not think twice about any one of them.One of the first was when I spontaneously took a huge pair of scissors and took about a minute to think it over, and then asked my best friend to chop( and I mean "Mommy Dearest" butcher) My long hair. Now as as scary as that sounds I have to say it was like a five minute therapy session in my bathroom that did wonders. After that I took every chance I had to get away when I was given the opportunities. I just needed sometime to just take a deep breath. Now in this time I took a ton of photos along the way. .Oh and before I forget to mention I now also have a Boyfriend. And he's everything I had every dreamed of. He makes me happy as well as my Elliot happy and not that generic kind of happy but that real kind of happy. The kind that makes you forget about everything around you because you are far to preoccupied with what's in front of you and what's happening in the moment.  Yeah that kind. Now  let me end this post with a quote that I think sums up the exact place that I am at in these moments of my life.

"Life is too short to spend in negativity. So I have made a conscious effort to not be where I don't want to be"
-Hugh Dillon

Dress: Ebay  Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell  Flower Crown: Made by me.

Hello Everyone, I'm going to start this post off by first giving my most sincerest thank you to all of my loyal subscribers. Thank you for keeping me in your blogger reading list, even though i'd gone such a long time without updating my feed. But good news is i'm back, and i plan to keep it that way. So for all of you who enjoyed my posts, there will be plenty more to come.
so with that being said let me get to it.

Today's outfit was inspired by Pretty things.
Like flowers, lace, sunsets, and long hair. I love the simple feminine feel of the dress. It has a loose fit and  it's just perfect for days when you wanna feel like you walked right out of a storybook.

Fem For Fall











Dress: Forever 21  Hat: Vans  Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell  Bag: Thrifted

Feminine silhouettes in fall. Living in California, fall isn't exactly always cool breezes and falling leaves. In fact right at this moment it still feels a bit like summer. I guess it has it's upsides though. I can still wear sheer flowy dresses and not freeze my butt off. But truthfully, I can't wait till the temperature DropS and i can pull out my Coats & Cardis. If there's one thing i love when it comes to fashion is layering. So expect some layered looks soon.

Also i included some photos of the beautiful floral tea  set one of my good friends got me for my Birthday. As well as some handmade Mexican decorations i made for my bf's uncles office party. I'm an expert when it comes to craft all throughout my childhood crafting was my past time and over the years I've perfected certain skills. :}

Old Boarded Houses



Sheer Blouse: Yard Sale   Levi's: Vineland Swapmeet   Mary Jane Flats: China Town, San Francisco
 Kept the look very simple. But that's what summers about simple easy outfits. Especially with this crazy cali heat. A sheer blouse, cut offs and some easy slip on shoes. Also i noticed UO had pretty much thee exact same mary janes i purchased in San Francisco for $6 on their website for $15. So word of advice to those near any type of China Town, save your self some money and buy the real things not the over priced inspiration.
