I’m gonna bring animal print back

Remember in like the early 2000s animal prints were everything? Well #SimmiShoes has gotten me in love with animal print all over again. My goal with this fashion blog has always been to stay away from trends (as the leading caption says above). I love this look brought to you by #ASOS and http://www.simmi.com.

El Paso Sounds

I’m really enjoying El Paso. Between its Mexican culture and growing urban persona, I’m having a great time. I couldn’t have asked for a (second) better duty station (my first being the lovely Fort Carson, Colorado).

My favorite part of El Paso is finding other people who love the arts as much as I do. The talented photographer who took this photo has blessed me with so many of his creative and attention-to-detail ideas (his Instagram is @baeken). Besides trying to “model”, if you really know me, you also know I love to sing. I did my first open mic last Friday (20 OCT 2018) and now I’m like, on the hunt for more open mic opportunities. I even posted an ad looking for musicians in the El Paso/Las Cruces, New Mexico area. (Stay tuned for some sounds 🤓.)

Okay let’s get to the look. This entire look is brought to you by my all time favorite online UK stores: ASOS (top and bottom) and PrettyLittleThing (belt). I’m really into a 70s look. I love everything about 70s style of dress, music, and culture. I hope you enjoyed it.

Stylin’ in New Orleans

From music, to hip drinks, to art galleries, and eccentric photography…New Orleans is by far one of the best cities I’ve been to in North America. I️ planned this trip last minute with one of my sisters and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. If you make a trip out to the magical city, be sure to try the hand grenade mixed drink anywhere on Bourbon Street! (Not even the bartenders know what’s in that delightful drink 😝).

I️ picked this sweater up in New Orleans (actually) from H&M at of course an affordable price. The skirt is from Forever21, and I️ just love the 90s feel to it. One could’ve worn this outfit with mesh tights (or patterned tights, which I️ see is slowly making a comeback), but I️ decided to wear some simple, black calf-length socks with the “leather” boots I️ also picked up from Forever21. The jacket is from Zara, clutch from Nine West.

The weather was windy the day I️ took these photos (hence my “hedgehog” looking ‘fro lol). I️ wanna do a perfect twist out one day and capture my natural hair at its best, but I️ still love how the photographer of these photos captured it at its (almost) worst. Stay tuned for another post once he sends me more photos he took of my sister and I️ before this one. Thanks for reading…and let me know if you make it out to New Orleans!

Spring Colors in October

It’s easy to sport beautiful spring colors in South Florida! Upon visiting my mom, siblings, and niece in Coconut Creek, FL, I decided to pair a raspberry pencil dress (I bought from ASOS of course) with these beautiful yellow heels from Public Desire to wear to Church. One of the things I love about this outfit is the pretty frill look to both the dress and shoes. ASOS carries the prettiest and affordable church dresses, and Public Desire always has the funkiest affordable shoes. Check those stores out now if you’re already not familiar!

One more thing. As many of you who follow my fashion looks already know (or may have noticed), I don’t accessorize too often and I’m not big into handbags. I do plan on accessorizing someday…maybe you can help me out! Send me your accessory ideas for this outfit via Instagram DM! My instagram is @rebekahestime 🙂 I hope you liked this look!

Fireworks in Dallas

My roommate and I made a last minute decision to travel to Dallas for the Fourth of July…and I’m glad we did. What a beautiful city filled with history, culture, and diversity!

For our first real day in Dallas, I chose to wear a beautiful, flowy, summery/spring-filled skirt (pictured) that has such vibrant, poppy, colors. And I’m a sucker for nude because it compliments my complexion so well. The top is actually a bodysuit and fits pretty well. Clutch from Aldo I bought awhile ago, and the sandals are from Aldo as well. (I’m so mad. I had the perfect heels I picked up from Public Desire but I forgot to pack them.)

Although I like to wear a dark lip, I chose to match my lip color with that of my outfit by wearing a combination of a soft nude from MAC and a color called “Toast of New York” from Revlon.

I hope you enjoyed this post and my outfit! As always, reach out to me for style tips and fashion ideas.

Target meets NY & Company

I had to welcome Easter with all the traditional colors Spring has to offer. This wonderful shawl/cover-up is from Target and most definitely cost under $20. The jumpsuit is from NY & Company. What I love about NY & Company is how chic and generous the store is with its sales! This jumpsuit was featured on Gabrielle Union (I’m pretty sure…as she is a regular sponsor for NY & Company).

Shoes are from Aldo. Sorry this post seems rushed. I just wanted to make sure I got the details up before the day ended as promised. Oh! Almost forgot to mention the “almost-versatile” neck-tie feature of the jumpsuit. I loved taking pics of the different options. If you buy this jumpsuit…send me your photo!

Style on a Budget

Hello, everyone. I hope you enjoy my fashion blog, I hope you find it to be unique, and I hope that more than anything you are able to adopt some of the fashion advice and style tips that I plan to give. (This is my first post so bear with me lol.)

This entire outfit is from Target. If you’re sleeping on Target as far as clothing is concerned (or you are perhaps embarrassed to buy clothing from there), think again! I mean, if you like this ‘fit I threw together, then you should take a peak at the clothing section at your nearest Target :).

Don’t forget to check out my instagram for more fashion photos as I get this blog set up (IG: @rebekahestime).

Stay tuned…
