While my parents were in London, we went out to Westminster to meet with my dad’s friend. The sun was shining, and the breeze was perfect, and I just had a moment where I felt extremely grateful. I always feel grateful, but this time was so different. I just felt like I was exactly where I was meant to be, and I was doing everything I’m meant to, and I rarely have that feeling. The second photo is the background of the first photo, through my eyes. And what I saw while I was thinking about everything it took for me to get to where I am now. There’s not many photos in this post, but I just felt like sharing 🙂
Looking back on one of the best days..
On September 20th (yes I’m extremely late haha) I celebrated my 20th birthday, which was also my Golden Birthday! It was one of the most special birthdays I’ve ever had and I felt so grateful and loved, even though I’m 1000’s of miles away from the rest of my friends and family. Sadly this was also my first day of school, but I made the most of the day and still enjoyed it.
To start the day, I had breakfast at The Grand cafe in Green Park with my parents, and rushed to class after. After class, we went to Wildwood in Covent Garden, and to Milk Train for dessert (MY FAV). Throughout the day other little things happened that made me feel really special but I’ll spare you all the details. Needless to say, it was just a really good day.
Sunday’s are for overpriced bruch! LOL. Here’s a little outfit of the day from my latest brunch outing with family. Believe it or not, my dress and shoes are from outlet stores! So many people talk about having budgets, and blaming that for the reason they cant dress well, but budgets shouldn’t hold you back from being stylish! My dress is from TJ Maxx and my shoes are from Nordstrom rack, so definitely never sleep on those stores next time you come across them!
Some photos of me at my favorite place. One thing I love about my home so much is the beach. I’m an earth sign and the sea just makes me calm and relaxed. On this day, the waves were rough and the water was murkier than usual but I still enjoyed it all the same.
Just a little outfit of the day to show you guys. I’ve been loving polka dots and flatforms, so here’s a look with how I styled both! My romper is from Zara, shoes from nordstrom rack, and purse from forever 21.
the ultimate birthday celebration..
For my mom’s birthday, we went to Miami for JLO’s birthday party concert, and it was such an amazing concert. It was about 3 hours long and for being 50 years old, she was unreal. Beautiful, energetic, and passionate after all these years still. She did about 10 outfit changes, and had so many touches to her show that made it personal and one of a kind. She’s a triple threat, and it’s so awesome to see someone so talented in person.
Terrible photo, but the only picture I have of my outfit for the night
Breakfast date turned photoshoot
Long time no see. Here’s a quick little outfit of the date from a breakfast date over the weekend. I can’t believe that summer came and went just like that, and I’ll be back in London in 3 weeks. Already can’t wait for Christmas!
A quick little OOTD featuring pink corduroy trousers (Topshop) and a floral mesh halter top (Urban Outfitters). Don’t forget to follow my instagram (@xoallyy) for regular outfit and lifestyle posts!
