Posted on Dec 29, 2016

I get lots of questions on my instagram regarding modeling, especially how I got scouted. I decided to make this video all about my modeling experience and any advice I have for new models. 

Winter Style with StyleWe

Posted on Dec 22, 2016

Hi everyone! To bring you this post I am partnering with StyleWe to show off some of their pieces for the winter season. They have quality designer brands and are full of different styles for everyone. Below are some pieces that I have styled and you can purchase through

The first piece I am styling is this very basic sweater that you can purchase here. I wanted to add more detail and texture, so I styled it with a huge black fur coat and some over the knee boots which are on trend this season.

Untitled #708

The next outfit I am styling another sweater that I absolutely love. I made it more on the edgy side with some leather leggings and a fun velvet bag that screams the holidays. You can purchase this sweater here

Untitled #709

This last outfit completely gives me holiday party vibes. I styled this gorgeous deep red dress with a warm teddy coat and a sparkly clutch. Purchase this dress here

Untitled #710

I hope you all found some inspiration from these outfits! Definitely check out StyleWe for more unique pieces like these ones. See their online tunics here.

My first lookbook ever is up! I know I haven't been posting much on here, but that's because I've been putting all my effort into my channel lately. I'm really proud with how this video turned out, and I hope you all like it!

Enjoy my many "I don't care that people are watching me taking photos of myself laying on the beach" photos. For real though. 

This past week, I stayed in the Outer Banks, NC with my family, which is why I haven't gotten a post up in that time. It wasn't a very "fashion-y" trip; I basically lived in bikinis and workout attire the majority of the time. Due to that, I thought it would only be appropriate to collect some photos for you all. I love watching travel diary videos, and hopefully this somewhat of an attempt gives off the same feel.

I just can't stop from ordering stuff, but I had to film this video sometime haha! Thanks for the positive feedback on my bikini video- love you guys! 

Some Nights

Posted on May 29, 2016

I think people become hooked on Pinterest because it gives a visual representation of their dreams and aspirations, even if they are no where near them. A good friend of mine said, "Even single people have Pinterest boards of their dream wedding, right?" We are all guilty of this. Like, while I am no where near close to living in my own apartment, I have the board "Apartment Inspo." Sometimes my 15 year old self fails to realize exactly how much time I have left in my childhood room. However, that only adds to my ideas for decorating it. I am very pleased with how everything has turned out, and cozy, late nights like this make for quite the relaxing space. [ not too shabby for the next 3 years ;) ]

I am so proud of how these photos turned out. I think this outfit is a good depiction of my current style mixed with an almost nostalgic representation of my very first introduction to fashion. The modern, clean, and monochromatic palette is quite current of my personal style, which incorporates my love of neutrals on neutrals. I used to love wearing bright colors when I first got into fashion, hence, why the pink cap brings me back to that time. Thanks to my friend Jeremiah, I am now completely in love with baseball caps and intend to fill my wardrobe with heaps of them. You should all go check him out, and show some love on his Instagram @themambaface

Also, I was recently introduced to Social Print Studio and inspired to share this look with you all. Be sure to check out their custom photo books! Having photos on a screen is once thing, but it's just not the same as actually holding them. Their books are such a wonderful way to bring digital looks to life!

Happy Easter! I know I posted yesterday, but I had a cute shoot that I wanted to get up for you all before I got crazy busy again. Now that spring break is nearly over, the count for summer begins. I cannot express how excited I am for being able to focus on my work and the traveling I'll be doing! I hope you all have a great day spent with loved ones xx

So Glad We're Acquainted

“Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn't have the time to sit around and talk about you. What's important to me is not others' opinions of me, but what's important to me is my opinion of myself.”
