What To Wear TO an Outdoors Spring Wedding

I've teamed up with Banana Republic again to showcase their latest Spring midi dress for petites! The thought of SPRING conjures up images of flowers and bold colors... As you can tell by browsing through the images in this particular post, I found it only fitting to intertwine these two ideas together.

I have been in search for a fresh colored lightweight maxi for approximately a month so when this chartreuse strappy midi arrived, I jumped with joy! If you read my previous post in collaboration with Banana Republic, you already know that the dress featured in that story was a dream. It was as if a my exact measurements were taken to make that floral dress (See the first Banana Republic x invictus collaboration HERE). When I saw that this dress was also a 0P, I knew that I could slide comfortably in. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed with the fit. Why? Well, the dress is a tad loose around the torso but it's nothing a little alteration couldn't fix! Yes, I know this dress isn't supposed to be skin tight however, I prefer it when my clothes give definition to my body. Additionally, if you guys look online at this chartreuse pleased dress, you'll notice that it's ideally supposed to end mid-calf. As for me, the dress floated in between a midi and a maxi - I'm a little too short!

Yeah, so what though... I still like this dress! The loose casual feel gave me freedom to twirl and allowed me to eat to my heart's content without walking around with a protruding belly! It has a fun crisscross pattern in back, both the front and back are pleated and it has POCKETS! I had so much fun running through the Carlsbad Flower Fields in this lightweight dress! The wind did wonders to this dress though the wind effect in my hair is definitely another story. For all you flower aficionados out there, I did not destroy any flowers! Hope you enjoy these pictures!

Girl On Fire

How to Pull off an All Black Outfit_Black Suede Ivanka Trump OTK Boots_Over the Knee Boots_adrienne Nguyen_invictus

Do you guys ever feel like there's just nothing to wear? I often find myself blankly gazing at my closet... not really ideal since this results in me running out the door, like a maniac, I might add, to accomplish my quest of the day. Whilst staring into the depths of my closet, I noticed the strange accumulation of black clothing. Why odd? I typically migrate towards vibrant shades full of prints and intricate designs... which I will do again once I start school this coming Fall. With all these black pieces staring at me, I whipped up some of my favorites to create this look!

I'm wearing a sweater I bought from ZARA while I was still an undergrad. I never paid attention to the printed pictures until now... It features flowers, a statue, an actual zipper and the only bit of color is from a blazing flame. I layered this over my western floral, embroidered button down from FOREVER 21. To finish off the look, I tossed on my favorite leather shorts and my suede IVANKA TRUMP Sarena OTK Boots. This outfit is perfect for school or a day at the library! Oh, the wind started picking up thus my ruffled hair but I hope you like this look! Until next time!

Stringing You Along

Adrienne Nguyen_Invictus_TOV_Nordstrom Motorcycle Jacket_What to wear with a Brown Motorcycle Jacket_Lace up Sleeveles_Flare Pants

What's an essential outerwear item for both gals and guys? A MOTORCYCLE JACKET , of course! As I was leaving Nordstrom Rack, I noticed very peculiar shoe-lace strings upon the sleeves of what I thought was a seemingly ordinary jacket. As I tugged and pulled, I finally managed to free this alluring piece to discover a zipper motorcycle jacket! I didn't mind the fact that it was a bit big on me zipped up since it would be the most interesting jacket I have yet to own! Besides, I needed to add a little caramel color to my closet!

So then came the question, what should I wear with my newly acquired jacket? Skinny jeans or flare jeans? I've always loved FLARE JEANS however, my obsession with them really took off this year! I particularly love flare pants since I can hide my platforms underneath... deceiving others with how tall I actually am! Not only do flares elongate my frame, they also give me a lot of breathing room as opposed to skinny jeans. Did you guys read about the case of the girl who was sent to the hospital because her jeans were so tight it resulted in nerve/muscle damage in her legs? I know, I know, that happens once in a blue moon but I just thought I'd bring it up! Anyways, I finished off my look with a fairly big brown and silver belt along with a silver roman numerals ring necklace! I hope you guys like this casual look! Until next time!

Coachella Feels

Chico's Faux Suede Fringe Vest_Bohemian Style Inspiration

Good vibes only! As Coachella creeps up on us, I found that it was only fitting to post a boho - free-spirit look. But let's not forget Stagecoach! Sure, these festivals showcase different genres of music but the overall vibe is pretty similar! For this particular outfit, I decided to mash up a look that would work for both - a little bohemian touch in my newly acquired faux-suede fringe vest juxtaposed with a western cowboy hat. To add some definition to my dress, I decided to whip out an old braided belt. The final product? An olive green and tan combination!
