Fall Hues x Forever21

Hello, and welcome back to my blog! Today I will be sharing a few quick snapshots from a self-guided tour my roommate and I took around our new home.  As some of you may known I started college and moved into the dorms (3 weeks ago today).  My campus is absolutely stunning, and there are…

My Calvins

Hey guys and welcome back to my blog!  Today I am sharing something slightly different than what I normally post on here.  This whole summer I have practically lived in my Calvin Klein denim shorts and for the longest time I have thought of different ways I could feature these shorts on my blog.  With…

It’s In The Details

Hello and welcome back to my blog!  Today my outfit revolved around two things- 1. date night and 2. the summer heat.  In an effort to create a semi-dressy, put together look that still allowed me to be comfortable, I opted for breezy cuts, light materials, and minimal accessorizes.  Without a doubt, this has to…

Kimono Cover-Up

        Hello and welcome back to the blog! Today, we are getting down to business because I cannot wait to share the photos for today. Long story short, I have been obsessing over this crop-style kimono recently. I actually wore it for the fourth of July (peep it in a recent Instagram photo of mine)….

One Piece Comeback

Hello and welcome back to the blog! Today’s post will be showcasing another look from my La Push vacation.  The outfit itself is fairly minimal and relaxed because I wanted the focus to be on this one piece that I brought along!  Usually I am not one to wear  this style of suit, however during…

Down the Beach

Hello and welcome back to the blog! This post marks the start of my vacation post, which will all be up in the next couple weeks. My family and our family friends have a tradition of spending a week out at a cabin resort on La Push beach. La Push is the name of the…

#ExploringWA // Langley

Hello and welcome back to the blog! Today I am sharing the first, of many, adventures from my new mini-series called Exploring Washington.  Since I have lived in Washington for the past 18 years, I figured it was time for me to expand my reach of this place I call home.  I may take pictures,…

June 26th, 2015

 Hello!  I wanted to write a quick post about June 26th, 2015- a day that many people will never forget.  If you haven’t heard by now, which is extremely unlikely since every social media outlet has been tweeting, posting, snapping and vineing about it, let me inform you.  The Supreme Court has officially ruled same-sex…

Hiking Rattlesnake Ridge!

Hey guys! With summer weather finally upon us, it’s time for summer outdoor adventures to begin!  I had heard about the beautiful view at the top of Rattlesnake Ridge, a hike up in my neck of the woods, and I wanted to see it for myself.  Nathan and I took to this 4 mile hike…

What I Wore to My Graduation!

I’m coming at you live with another Alyssa Renee look!  This is a look that I put together for my graduation.  As some of you may know, I graduated high school with my 2-year degree in hand.  When putting together my outfit for the night I wanted to keep it simple and classy, which is…

I know the countless amounts of events there are to attend during this seasons- graduation, graduation parties, birthdays, family gatherings, going away parties and the list goes on.  That is why, today, I’m coming at you guys with a few outfits ideas for these events.  I decided to make this post a combination…

“Spring Simplicity” Lookbook

For today’s post, I created a video to highlight a few outfits that I put together for spring. These are somewhat out of the norm for a typical spring wardrobe; no florals, pastels, or fringes. I purposefully wanted to show modern, chic, and (fairly) spring weather appropriate outfits that were slightly edgy, with a 2015…
