Christmas Wish List

Happy December everyone! I can’t believe how fast this year FLEW by!… Did I blink? Christmas is right around the corner, and as always, I’m nowhere near prepared!

I’ve been working on my presents for other people. And I’ve decided to make this Christmas a little more creative. I can’t say much more, but for the people I love, I’ll be putting together something very special. After the holidays pass, I’ll gladly post their gifts, but until then…it’s a big secret!

My family has been asking for a wishlist for several weeks now. I don’t expect any gifts this year; I’d much prefer to spend time with my loved ones. But here are some unrealistic items on my fantasy wish list. If only….

$59.99 @ Bakers

I’m a sucker for bows. When I saw these online, I was immediately SOLD. Love them.

$98.00 @ bebe

I’ve been wanting a NICE leather jeacket for a while.. probably something like two years. But I’ve never wanted to spend the money. I looked at Bebe a few years ago, and fell in love with one, but couldn’t make myself spend the money…. surprisingly. But I do love this jacket! I love that it’s cropped. Leather jackets are sexxyyyy.

$84.99

So lately, I’ve been attempting to watch football on Sundays with my “manfriend” Eddie. I told him, it’s time to buy me a jersey. I figured I could rock a Cardinals jersey, ’cause duhhh, I’m from AZ. He wants me to sport a Lions jersey, because he’s from Detroit. I said “fat chanceeee bud!” Cross your fingers; hopefully he’ll get me the black one (;

$27.80 @ Forever21

I’m also in DIRE need of a new coat. I somehow lost my favorite one in the move, and it’s starting to get really super cold, and I’m gonna need a new one. Mom, Dad…. Make it happen? Ha, just kidding. But really….

$138.00 @ Guess

I looked down at my jeans the other day while I was at work, and realized they’re pretttyyyy faded. I love Guess jeans, and I plan to make these mine, even if they’re not under the tree this year.

$100.42 @ Frames Direct

I had to do a little research for this item. I’ve been wanting to rock my glasses more often, but mine are old and beat up to the maxxxx, so I want a new pair that I’d feel confident rocking every once in awhile. These are Guess, and I found them discounted at Frames Direct. LOVEEE.

$95.00 @ Guess

I was also browsing the Guess website to find a new watch, because mine’s broken. I found this one. SO CUTE. For some reason, I’ve been obsessed with leopard lately, and while this may not be a WATCH watch, it’s definitely ADORABLE.

$135.00 @ Guess

I also loved this watch. Buy it for me? (:

$89.00 @ Nordstrom

This is my FAVORITE scent right now. And I’m out. ): I need a new bottle ASAP, and I’m really sick of buying the small bottleeee, so let’s get the big one this time, yeah?

$198.00 @ Nordstrom

Okay; yes, I realize this may be completely out of the question. But I saw it, and am in love with it. It’s a Betsey Johnson, and lately, I’ve been seeing her stuff everywhere. I feel like it’s calling my name. “Kevennnn, you want to buyyyyy meee.” Shut up Betsey, I’m broke. This would look so good in a box, tied with a big red bow. MMMMM.

$79.95 @ Steve Madden

And lastttt, but not least, I’ve been looking for some cute leather-looking black boots. I have gray ones, but I obviously need a pair of black ones, since that’s my favorite color. Loved these ones from Steve Madden. And with the leather jacket from Bebe? PERF.

“Kevenscent”

A lot of my friends say I have my own “scent.” I’m not really sure what this consists of; probably something like shampoo, hairspray, cigarettes and perfume… It doesn’t sound like it’d smell good, but I promise, I always smell good (p.s. you may have noticed I mentioned cigarettes; I have yet to quit, and obviously broke my promise. Sigh…).

I have a few perfumes that I loooove. And a new bottle of perfume is definitely on my “to buy” list.

$37.09 @ Target

This is my number one FAVORITE perfume right now. I bought the bottle at Target, but it was so freaking tiny, so I ran out really quick. I plan on investing in a larger size this time, because I love love love this scent.

$68.00 @ Nordstrom

I also love this fragrance, Chance by Chanel. My ex-boyfriend bought it for me a while back, and I just recently finished the bottle. I miss it. I really like wearing this scent for going out, it smells a little fancier, if you know what I meannn.

$62.00 @ Nordstrom

This is another favorite scent. My best friend bought this for me for Christmas one year, and I used it all up super fast. It’s very casual, and light. It’s not too girly or flowery or overpowering which I like… I like to have just a hint of scent, versus walking into a room followed by a cloud of heavy perfume. Not my thingggg.

Summertime Style

So, since you’re reading about things in my life that are so personal, I thought you should see firsthand what my style looks like. I set up a shoot with a friend, Jillian, to show off my personal style.

If I had to describe it, I’d say, for the most part, I’m a pretty casual girl. ESPECIALLY in the middle of Arizona’s summers. When it’s 115 degrees outside, I don’t care too much for packin on the layers. I keep it simple with tank tops and denim shorts. Most of the time I’m also rockin’ flip flops or my Converse.

This is a perfect example of my every day outfit.

TO GET THIS LOOK:

$30.00 @ Sole and Blues

$20.00 @ Hollister

$5.80 @ Forever21

This next outfit is also very typical for my summer style.  More denim shorts, and yet another tank. This is something I’d wear on a summer night, to a party, or just to hang out with the boys (on a typical summer night, you’d find me kickin’ it with some of my best friends, most of which are guys).

Notice the nail color; it’s the new one I bought, “Turned Up Turquoise” by OPI.

TO GET THIS LOOK:

$30.00 @ Swell

$44.50 @ Hollister

$17.50 @ American Eagle

By the way, I love stacked bracelets and rings; I’m not a huge accessories person, but I love the look of it. I find a lot of cute accessories at American Eagle. Their jewelry is to die for!

My nextttt outfit, is my summer sun dress. This is when I feel like dressing it up a bit, but still casual enough for comfort!

GET THIS LOOK:

$17.99 @ Target

$19.80 @ Forever21

Uhm, I’m in love with that dress from Forever21. The tribal print is adorable, and honestly, I like it better than the one I’m wearing! What the heck? I might have to make it mine.

And last but not leastttt, my night out attire! This is what I originally intended to wear as my birthday dress, however, my birthday this year was freezing cold and rainy, so this was not the outfit I wore.

Feathers everywhere!

I’ve been obsessed with feathers for a very long time. I’ve always loved what they symbolize. There’s a lot of different meanings, however, my favorites are “flight,” and “new beginnings.”

Right now, in my life, it’s a period of transition. The word flight means a lot to me, just because I feel like now is when I’m taking off. I’m starting fresh; just moved into a new house, started school again, and started a new job. I also started this blog, so it’s a big time for me. The term “flight” really hits home. But enough about me!!

Feathers were really in this summer, and I have a feeling they’re not going out of style soon. Feathers have been printed all over clothing articles, appeared in hair styles, and were incorporated into accessories. Let’s just say I’m obsessed!!

Here’s a few feather inspired articles that I love!:

$8.50 @ Wetseal

I don’t shop at Wetseal very often, but sometimes I’ll find something that I must have. The way I shop issss if I like something, I buy it (which is part of my problem). But at Wetseal, they usually have stuff on the cheaper side. Always a plus.

$98.00 @ Nordstrom

This shirt is adorable, but I’m not sure I could bring myself to spend that much on a top. Maybe one day!

$12.99 @ Modcloth

Modcloth is one of my absolute favorite places to shop. They have a bunch of vintage inspired clothing. I love their dresses, and shoes. They also have the cutest stuff for apartments.

$14.99 @ Modcloth

Another Modcloth find… I love the double ring thing. I have a ton!!

$14.00 @ Buckle

Loveee this necklace. Black, of course, but it would be super cute with a gray, loose fitting top.

$134.99 @ Modcloth

This dress is to dieee for. Again from Modcloth. A little on the pricey side, but Modcloth carries higher quality clothing, so purchases from there can be investment pieces. A lot of their stuff is more on the mature side as well, so it’d be perfect for work.

$26.00 @ Nordstrom

Hair clips. With feathers. I’m obsessed.

This belt would be adorable to make any outfit a little more interesting. I love peacock feathers, and there’s a lot you could do with this belt!

I’m not saying farewell to the feather trend any time soon.
