Hellooooo! So I had an idea… I’m going to start featuring people who have their own personal styles, that I’m inspired by. I absolutely love seeing people put together their own outfits that have a personal touch to them, and I really admire people who have their own style. I think that personal style is SOOO important. The way you present yourself says a lot about you.
So for my first style feature, I chose my sister. In honor of her 17th (Holy cow!!) birthday, this post is about her. She’s an amazing young woman; she’s intelligent, witty, gorgeous, and her own person. She doesn’t care about what other people think, something I really admire. She’s such an old soul, and one of my best friends.
I asked her if we could put together a post, so she chose three outfits, and we did a little shoot. Here’s what we came up with!:
This outfit is her more casual look. I love the way the gold necklace brings out the gold threading in the top. And I loveeee those sandals, I frequently borrow them (:
This is an outfit she put together for while the weather is starting to cool down. I’m a huge fan of textured tights. And the ‘dress’ is a men’s tank from American Apparel. I have one with a tribal looking print, and wearing it with a belt and textured tights makes for an adorable outfit…obviously!
I LOVE this outfit. Normally, I can’t do navy blue and black together, but I think the colors in this really work well together. I also love the simple accessories, and I think she looks adorableeee.
So, as I mentioned earlier, Meg’s birthday was Thursday night. She makes me feel like an old fart… But we had a really great night celebrating as a family.
My mom, dad, sister, her boyfriend and I all went out to eat at one of our favorite restaurants in Downtown Chandler called ‘El Zocalo.’ SO delicious. And I brought my cameraaaa.
We got to the restaurant, and there was a wait for the patio area, so we mingled through the farmer’s market that takes place every Thursday night in Downtown Chandler. My sister and I found a jewelry stand, and she bought copper earrings that had been dipped in acid, so they had turned turquoise. They’re BEAUTIFUL. And I bought a blue crystal necklace, which I’ll post pictures of later!
So, then we all ate. My sister, Aaron and I all ordered the Killer Chimichanga. Which definitely killed me… I was STUFFED. And then after dinner, we headed home for presents and cupcakes.
Here’s pictures of the night!:
