just some summer inspiration

Fashionista, Life's Pleasures

Summer is just around the corner so as per usual I am looking for outfit inspiration and ideas. I have a lot of fun things happening this summer including heading to NYC for a study tour with the UNT Merchandising program, so of course I need to look my best! I have been on Pinterest for the past few weeks rounding up some of my favorite summer looks. So enjoy!

Journey To BENZIE blooms


For a while now I have felt trapped in a creative rut when it comes to my blog. I knew I need to change up the look and title of my site, as I have grown so much as a person since I first created my blog. When I started this adventure it was my senior year of high school, and I came up with a name that I thought I would love forever – not the case. So, I took the summer to try and find out what direction I wanted to go creatively, and now we’re here.

Here is a look at the journey to BENZIE:

LA travels day 1

Fashionista, Ladies Who Lunch, Life's Pleasures

Today we drove from LA to Beverly Hills to the Santa Barbara Pier. It was overall an incredible day. Walking around Beverly Hills was my favorite part because of all the diversity and different types of fashion. It was very high end. I saw a girl in a very chic//elegant outfit, boyfriend jeans(personal fav), a loose fitting shirt, and a cute pair of wedges. When we arrived at the Santa Barbara Pier we took lots of cute pictures posing near the ocean, and obviously the spectacular pier. I can’t wait for the rest of my fun-filled week at FIDM.
















summer packing list

Fashionista, Life's Pleasures

a little polyvore inspiration

my packing list for my trip to cali consist of:

all sorts of vintage finds from the thrift store (buffalo exchange), a parisian chic sunhat, my black sunnies, cute vintage black one piece swimsuit –because modest is hottest, boyfriend jeans, duh, my kate spade purse, birkenstocks, and a bunch of beachy light whites. I really am all for the monochromatic white ensembles — so chic. This summer is all about getting in touch with my inner old soul. I feel like that is really the style that suits me most. My fashion inspirations right now range from the lovely Diane Keaton all the way to Leandra Medine and back again to Bethany Joy Lenz, all three of them being very strong independent females. I will be posting a lot of pictures from my vacation and the outfits I put together. enjoy
