Outfit Post: Under The Weather+Inspiration

Yesterday was the start of feeling sick, and today is the full fledged sickness. I had school today so it was definitely hard waking up but I tried to make the best of it by using my "Keep Calm and Carry On" mug filled with hot tea and made a yummy pumpkin english muffin sandwich for breakfast. Lets just say it got me through the morning! After school I took two exams online and got ready for date night. Here is what I wore.

pants GAP, flannel shirt Target, chambray jacket Forever21, assorted jewelry: Michael Kors watch, ILY Couture, handmade druzzy necklace, handmade ring, vintage gold bracelet, Pandora bracelet, Brighton bracelet, vintage gold chain necklace, silver necklace Forever21, purse Dooney & Bourke, flats Forever21

Okay this is a little random, but lately I have been seeing a lot of negativity on the Internet, Youtube, Instagram, Facebook etc. with people looking down/bringing people down. Whether it is about someone's weight, dreams, goals, appearance etc. everyone has the right to chase after their dreams and be who they want to be. One of the main reason's that I started this blog is because I love fashion, beauty, crafts etc. and wanted to be able to document it and share it with my friends and family. However, I hope that when young girls and women see my blog, they not only get inspired by my style, but also feel empowered to be who they want to be. Whether it's tall, skinny, heavy, tom boyish or curvy, do not be afraid to feel comfortable in your skin. You don't have to be rich to sport the latest fashion or even have great style. I personally think amazing style isn't about the clothes, it's about how you put them together. Hopefully this little rant may have inspired or lifted some of you up. Don't let anyone discourage you or try to "dull your sparkle"! Be YOU and be PROUD of it. 



  1. Alyssa, you are so inspiring! With all the negativity on the internet, your thoughts, and your blog make the web a better place. :)


    1. Awww this is such a sweet compliment!!! Thank you so much for always being supportive!! :) xo!

  2. That last little paragraph <3
    Thank you so much for addressing that dear!

    I try to stop things where I see them too.
    People are just plain mean these days.
    They only think of themselves and don't think before they speak. Then they get upset when someone says something to them!

    Lovely outfit as well(:
    I'm sorry you're feeling sick! I've been sick for a week now. With a horrid voice, cough, sniffle, and more.
