If you read my Valentine's Day Outfit Guide, you'd know that Valentine's Day is truly my favorite holiday. No joke! I'm a super romantic and an absolute sucker for love. With a soul fueled by romcoms and pixie stick sugar in my veins, I was basically built for Valentine's Day and all things ooey gooey chocolatey and oh so lovey-dovey!

That being said however, I don't know why I didn't get this post up to you sooner, and more V-Day posts out in general. One excuse I find pretty valid is that: I'm a student with zero time (an exaggeration but go with it) to DIY, create, bake, collaborate, or really anything other bloggers do for holidays in advanced simply because I'm too busy doing things that in my life right now unfortunately matter more.

BUT! I did manage to create this post! And ya know you take what you can get, so don't throw any riots or anything about it, okay? Thank you. It's a classic post to say the least, three styles of outfits for three different gals this V-Day.
This Valentine's Day whether you're doing a picnic in the park with your S.O. or a ladies brunch, this outfit gives off Parisian vibes head to toe. Perfect for any occasion where you're not too casual yet not too dressed up, and you know there will be pics afterwards. Especially in an outfit of mainly one color, it's important to mix textures to add some flair.
Any excuse to get dressed up is always a good one. If you're going on a date with your boo, they already know how beautiful you are, no need to go with anything too extravagant to try and impress them, all they really care about is Y-O-U. But of course, we all know that doesn't stop any fashionista! Wearing a simple elegant dress, color to fit the V-Day mood of course, with statement jewelry says it all. Wow your date with your classic beauty this Valentine's Day.

not pictured: great red heels.
We all have that friend who claims they could care less about the day of luv, but secretly we all know deep down they want in. I mean who doesn't?! If that's you this year, play it cool, you're a casual Valentine. Rock a laid back look with a subtle Valentine's Day themed graphic tee and pops of the holiday color. Possibly it says, "oh, today is Valentine's Day? huh I guess I just got lucky wearing red!" or it could say, "Yeah you know, I'm not a huge fan of the holiday, but I'm never opposed to a celebration." Like I said, you're a casual Valentine, no harm in that, play it cool... play it cool...
What will you be wearing this Valentine's Day? Comment down below!! Be sure to peep my Instagram for my V-Day ootd posted tomorrow! xo, O

top- The Home T // jacket- Calvin Klein // pants- American Apparel 

Hey guys! Today I'm talking to you a little bit about what it's like to live away from home. If you've been following me for a while now, you'd know that although I'm from Virginia, I go to school in Georgia, and in about a month, Hong Kong! Sometimes living so far away (and even further soon) can be difficult. Home is a safe place; a place I know and trust. Home is where I can be comfortable being lazy, watching movies all night long with my family, eating pasta every day, hanging out with my best friends 24/7, home is good. Meanwhile at school, yes I do have a lot of fun, for the most part it's work, work, work, work! Especially during midterms, here at school everyone is under high stress, and really only craving one thing: home.

One thing that makes me feel a little closer to home? My Home T. The Home T is a brand that let's you rep your home with pride, no matter how far away you are. With all sorts of items from mugs to tees, The Home T's got you covered when it comes to making you feel right at home wherever you are.

So no matter who you are, where you are or where you're going, get yourself a Home T to feel a little bit closer to home.

Also! A great conversation starter, you'd be surprised how many people ask me where in VA I'm from, saying they have family there, or they grew up there. Sometimes you don't realize you have family all around you until you show it off.

HAPPY ME DAY! Okay okay okay, what the heck IS Me Day?? Well, this year, during the season of luvvvv, with help from Adore Me, I'm celebrating a day of ME! When it comes to love, it is so important to love yourself FIRST!

This Me Day I've treated myself to some ADORABLE Adore Me sets. My plan? Dance around my room and eat all the chocolate in site!! Simple as that. What's better than feelin' sexy and beautiful and full of chocolates all at the same time? Not much honestly....

With Adore Me, they make feeling sexy so easy. All of their lingerie is so affordable, comfortable and pretty! What are you waiting for? Treat yourself! Go get yourself a pair!
Happy shopping, and Happy #MeDay :) xo, O

HEY GUYS! This past week, I spent Monday and Tuesday taking a solo trip to Atlanta! Mainly for the Lana Del Rey concert, but let's be real, I was really only there for the murals ;) They are everywhere and so amazing! I thought Richmond was covered in murals, but in ATL, it's like the murals are covered in Atlanta, MORE murals than city!! It's the coolest thing. Especially because, in my opinion, Atlanta is super chaotic, there are streets that lead to nowhere, unpaved roads, and sketchy neighborhoods everywhere you turn, the contrast of city to color is wild! I love it.

Anyway, here are some cool murals I came across while there. Also keep in mind that I was alone, so my self timer game here is impressive for someone who doesn't have autofocus on their camera... just sayin'

There were so many others that I wanted to see, but either didn't have time or were literally parts of construction sites so I couldn't get in obviously. Guess it just means I have to go back :)
Until then!! xo, O

HEYO! It's February already. Puxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, there are six more weeks of winter, it's midterms here at SCAD, it's cold, I'm drowning in work, but let's be real, you already knew all of that, nothing is new. Honestly though, it is somewhat hard to believe that it is already February. Every quarter here at SCAD midterms sort of pop up out of nowhere and then all of a sudden the quarter is OVER! Time flies. The fact that we are already half way through this quarter, that I am that much closer to Hong Kong, blows my mind. I have a good bit in store for you all and for myself for February. I'll use this post as a way to share that with you, cause what else would you expect?
Starting the month of right, tomorrow I'm taking a solo adventure over to Atlanta to see Lana Del Rey! Getting lit on a Monday, I know. I was going to try to go for a double whammy and see BØRNS and stay in Atlanta another night, but things were just getting SO ridiculously expensive, I couldn't have pulled it off unfortunately. BUT! I am still so insanely pumped for Lana. I'll vlog all about that for sure, so be on the look out. Are you subscribed to my YouTube?
I have a BUNCH of collaborations lined up this month, to name a few: Adore Me, The Home T, Don't Tell Your Mama and MORE! I'm really excited about that, I hope you are too!!
I've been working with a ton of other SCAD gals on projects, so expect some QUALITY content here soon. These photos included! How talented is Rachel?! I want to get together a whole girl gang of photographers and do a big photoshoot sometime once it gets warmer, I think that would just be so so fun.
I know this isn't in February, BUT the second day of March (I'm just too excited I have to share now) Kate, John and I are going to DISNEY!! I'm SO ridiculously excited! I've never been to Disney, or at least have zero memory of doing so... Oh my gosh how I've always dreamt of wearing one of those cute little Mickey ear hats with my name embroidered on the back of it... MAJOR HEART EYES!!

This month will be full of adventures, hard work, and lots and lots of fun. I can't wait! AND it's the first full month of me being an ADULT! Gotta make each day count! Here's to doing more, constantly creating, and loving LIFE! xo, O

P.S. I almost forgot to mention! These photos I took during my birthweek as a part of my Birthday Chronicles, shooting in the studio! Success!

Valentine's Day Outfit Guide

Thursday, February 1, 2018

Besides my birthday month (obvi) Valentine's month is my FAVORITE! Ever since I was a tiny tot decorating heart shaped sugar cookies in kindergarten and giving glittery cards to all my many crushes, Valentine's Day has always been my favorite holiday. Pink is my favorite color after all... Everyone is so happy, it's warming up (in Savannah at least) there are hearts and people exchanging kisses everywhere, I love it so much! I just love love!! And what do I love almost as much as love..?? CLOTHES! 

SO! Instead of a gift guide this year, I decided to do an outfit guide! I've split it into some categories so it's easier for your viewing. I hope you like the things I've chosen! I know I sure do, I wish I could own it all!! What will you be wearing this Valentine's Day? xoxo
