Summer is here and I'm obsessing over bags. And who isn't? It seems like summer is the time to express yourself through your accessories, however odd that may sound, and I'm doing it!


I've been wanting to get a chic, stylish backpack in my post-grad life and I found this lovely yellow one from Zara. So cute! Thank goodness I finally graduated and don't have to break my back with a bag full of books and supplies. This one is small, but not too small, and my back can now rest easy.

The black and white outfit is really key in this look. Summer is usually all about color, but since I typically wear a monochromatic color palette I like to continue that through the hotter seasons. For this outfit, this is what makes the backpack POP.


What do you think of the bright backpack style? Here are some favorites for you to complete your pop of color look. 



Has anyone ever gone through a style transformation? I feel as though my style choices have changed dramatically in the last few months. Maybe the new me doesn't seem obviously different to the people who know me personally, but I've taken a brand new approach on the way I dress myself. 

Within this little style identity crisis I've lost my motivation to put on jeans. I'm not giving up on them entirely, but I definitely am taking a much needed break. Because I still need to wear some sort of pant, (I'm definitely not a skirt person) all I've wanted to do is buy trousers in every color. There is something about trousers that take your outfit to the next level, from casual to put-together. And it's not just about being less restricted, and trust me I am much more comfortable, but it's also about exploring fashion and how I can push my style further.

In denim I feel comfortable, but in trousers I feel confident. Is there anything in your wardrobe that makes you feel confident?
