Petit Fleur.

Happy Friday everyone!! :} 

I am currently laying on the couch with my dog whilst eating a popsicle... Summer is treating me very well. I just got back from a little New York trip with my bff Raashi (which I will definitely dedicate a blogpost to later) before she headed off to Europe. But first I wanted to share my outfit on here because something that I have been absolutely head-over-heels about recently are...... Florals. 
I don't quite know what sparked this recent infatuation it just kind of happened beginning with this phone case.

I was experiencing a lot of frustration because I kept shattering my screen with the last (pretty shitty) phone case that I've had since like sophomore year. It was a cute b&w grid one, but it didn't have the protective bumper which this klutz right here really needed. I had been browsing for what seemed like ages and finally came across this little gem on Casetify :'}

ENGLISH ROSE.


It reminds me of The English Roses books that my sister and I used to be absolutely obsessed with when we were younger. It revolved around 5 British gals and was written by Madonna <3 Anyways, the illustrations for those books were soooooo cute and very much resemble the ones on this case. I ended up smacking a sticker from French Toast Nick on it because I figured I needed a little something to jazz it up just a bit ;}


Moving on to my outfit: I recently purchased this lovely floral off-the-shoulder top & a pair of fishnet tights from Frankie Phoenix -- a brand that I am very in love with at the moment. I'm telling you, their online store has so many closet essentials and their clothing pieces are very affordable. In fact, this top is on sale right now for literally $10, so if you want one for yourself! click on over to my outfit deets ;}

I would also like to mention that their bralette collection is killer. 

Fishnet tights have been the look of the moment, and I am totally onboard for this. They've gained steam again this past fall and to be honest at first, rocking them seemed quite daunting to me. I intentionally paired them with softer tones because they are quite the statement, and I actually really love the way they look with this outfit <3
I more than anything want to wear them under ripped mom jeans!! However, I haven't been lucky enough to find myself a decent pair that fits me yet :'(

Okay, last but not least, can we just talk about these shoes? These kicks are hands down the most complimented item in my entire wardrobe -- I love the simple elegance that they bring about in any outfit that I pair them with. The best part is: they are extremely comfortable. I literally snatched me the very last pair at my local TJ Maxx back in January, and I am so grateful that I did -- these shoes are truly timeless.

It feels good to be putting more content on my blog again!! I hope you're having a relaxing day or evening depending on whenever you're reading this, and I'll talk to you guys later in my nyc blog post ;}

Till next time!

    All Black Everything

    Hey loves.

    January is already over and thus far I have only posted my January playlist on my blog this year… and that was. yesterday... not to mention that I completely skipped December.

    But whatever. Right?

    Happy 2017 you guys! :’)

    These photos are from December, and the thing is, I haven’t necessarily even been that busy, I just by no means have been prioritizing my time. Like AT ALL… (New year's resolution perhaps).

    Sidenote. I know this really cool photographer dude. His name is Austin Leih and he shot these photos on b&w film (I mean might as well right? Totally complements the monochromatic mayhem that I am). He also happens to be my boyfriend ;) and has helped photograph for my little blog so much <3 so shoutout to him

    I want to continue dedicating more time towards my blog, not so much that I even have a substantial audience yet. I just know that further down in my life, I will very much enjoy being able to look back at my photos & little writings and feel all nostalgic. I love that. And hate that-- but that’s how nostalgia works. You wish you could go back to a certain time and place, and you’re sad that you can’t… but in the end you’re simply grateful for the fact that you have such a lovely memory to dwell on. Yeah.
    Extra side note. Nostalgia is my middle name.
    Just kidding it’s Dawn. But I am hands down the most nostalgic person that I know and am so overwhelmed with the concept of “time” and how it deludes right before my eyes.

    Anyways, I anticipate posting on my blog MORE frequently. Not only do I want to begin expanding in the content that I blog about, I also want to show more voice in my writing because more than anything when I look back and read these I want to hear my real voice and thoughts and not the cookie cutter polished thoughts which I know can get pretty monotone. I will more than likely begin posting some food related ones in the near future :}
    I’ve been vegan for almost a year now, and it would just fill my heart with joy to inspire others in living a cruelty lifestyle by demonstrating how simple it can actually be.

    Till next time! (which will be very soon).

      Thanksgiving 2016

      Hello everyone :}

      I hope everyone enjoyed their November :) For me, it's been by far one of my favorite months this year. For the Thanksgiving holidays, my family and I flew up to St. Louis to have dinner at my aunt Peggy's house. My Aunt Anne and Uncle Lawrence flew in from Colorado and joined us for dinner there as well. It was so lovely.

      Afterwards, we drove over to my Uncle Darren's house for dessert, and after that, we went back to my Aunt Carol's and watched movies :)

      I was more than pleased to see that it actually looks like autumn over there. Most of the trees are still green here in Texas; it's kind of depressing.
      It was super chilly in STL, and every time I walked in to my aunt's home, my glasses would completely fog up with all the food cooking haha.

      Here's a little peep of my dinner. (mine's consisted mainly of sweet potatoes, green beans, and a little salad) Last Thanksgiving I was only vegetarian, so cheers my first cruelty free thanksgiving ! :'}

      I really wanted to make a dish of my own to bring, but my flight came in late that Thanksgiving day, and I didn't have enough time to prepare it there in St. Louis :'( 

      This is what I wore to dinner :) I kept it casual, and hey. I wore color (; no b&w in this post. Looking at these photos just now, I can't help but get Nancy Wheeler vibes. 

      I bought these mom jeans for $6 at my local thrift store, and I actually bought this sweater at an antique store there in St. Louis back in March.

      I visit St. Louis very often, it's basically my second hometownthis is my fifth time visiting this year.

      Hope you all had a swell Thanksgiving and most importantly, spent it close to your loved ones. Till next time.
