Hello everyone! My apologies for not posting too much lately! I just returned back to Utah from a much-needed trip to Manhattan. The trip was just what I needed mid semester. I have a new a spark for increased passion in my life – especially for the blog! I’m determined to succeed in all of my pursuits, more than ever right now! I’m obsessed with the energy and electricity that city gives off.

So this shoot is totally different than anything I would have ever worn 10 months ago. I have ALWAYS hated skulls but this top just sat with me right. I love the open back and just have a black bandeau that I paired with it. I glammed up the outfit with some MAC ‘Viva Glam’ lipstick and paired the top with this black pencil skirt.

This skirt is edgy but feminine in my opinion. You have a modest length and some faux leather on the side that gives it more personality. I got this as a steal on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale a little over a year ago and am so glad I did! Nordstrom is still carrying a look alike you can snag on sale right now (link listed below)!

Heels with height, why not? These Steve Madden heels were maybe not made for walking, but for wearing. I usually bring them out when I know I’ll be sitting, but they fit the outfit too perfect to not wear them for the shoot!

Kelcie styled my hair with some beach waves that added a little something, but not too much to distract from everything going on in the outfit.

I definitely encourage you all to add some sass to your feminine pretty taste. It’s fun to mix it up here and there!
