One Shoe Styled Six Different Ways

dawnphotography-2 dawnphotography-159 View More: IMG_8692 tonya-17 6L0A2505

I've gotten a couple of messages on my instagram asking if I could show how I wear a piece multiple ways or how to re-wear something! It seems like with some fashion bloggers or fashion influencers, wearing the same thing twice is a big "no-no" but for me...I think it's a great way to push your style and see what different outfits you can come up with. The mule has been a repeat staple for my, especially this pair, so I thought I would show how I have worn them with a variety of different outfits. My style really changes on my mood. Some days I will dress more vintage-inspired, while other days I might want a more clean, minimal look but these shoes can be worn and styled for all of those moods!
I think it's also important to keep in mind that you don't have to have a lot of money to look stylish! You just have to pick pieces that can be worn together different ways and that's a fun way to play with your style!

If there is a post or outfit you want to see, please let me know! I always love to hear your feedback!

T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i

6L0A5834 6L0A5829 6L0A5836

Having thick hair is both a blessing and a curse. It's so annoying to have to constantly dry and style my hair after I shower. But I am happy to recently have gotten the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i and it dries my hair SO fast. I love the simple design too so it fits in well with my apartment decor as well. This has been the first product I have tried from T3 and it really didn't disappoint. I had been seeing their products everywhere and was really excited to try this out! It also leaves my hair feeling super soft rather than other dryers I have used in the past. 
Have you guys tried any of their products before? I would love to know what you thought of their products too! I think I might have to get the straightener next...

Favorite Place to Shop for Graphic Tees

dawnphotography-92 dawnphotography-93 >dawnphotography-89 dawnphotography-78 dawnphotography-74 dawnphotography-71 dawnphotography-68 dawnphotography-65 dawnphotography-56 NEW FAVORITE BRAND ALERT: MONOGRAM. I've been stalking them on Instagram for awhile now and I am so happy to finally own one of their tees! I love how edgy the graphics are while still being very cool and modern. This one in particular leaves a bit to the imagination but that's what sets it apart from just another graphic tee. Not to mention, they're ridiculously soft. 
There are so many other great graphics on their site as well! They have sweatshirts with cropped sleeves that would be great as the weather warms up and they're reminiscent of the late 70s, early good.


Also, very happy about the fact that my friend, Dawn, and I happened to stumble across the most beautiful old vw beetle ever. The fact that it was red and had a convertible top had me drooling even more.

Classic Pieces on Repeat

dawnphotography-25 dawnphotography-32 dawnphotography-30 dawnphotography-29 dawnphotography-27 dawnphotography-22 dawnphotography-21 dawnphotography-19
I think denim on denim will always be one of my favorite ways to style a denim jacket. Some might be scared to try and pull it off but I think it's such a cool and effortless way to wear denim. Even though it it effortless, I think it still makes a statement and stands out. The distressed and frayed look of both the jacket and jeans from Unpublished Denim is another really cool detail I think! And the jeans are super comfortable and stretchy. I could wear them all day! 
Sunglasses have been another favorite accessory of mine these days. Similar to shoes, I think they really can make or break an outfit. I got these Raybans from SmartBuyGlasses! They have so many great styles at a discounted price! It's a great way to get some name brand sunglasses for the summer! These are going to go with so many of my outfits in the upcoming weeks and months. Check them out!

Current Staple: Embroidered Tees

tonya-6 tonya-1 tonya-15 tonya-11 tonya-13
Embroidered and graphic tees are basically taking over my wardrobe and a lot of other ladies out there too it seems! They're just the perfect piece to have to throw on with jeans and run out the door. I love having those easy outfits that I can always go to when I just want to comfortable. The red on this one too makes it stand out a bit too and almost doubles as an accessory as well.
I'm wearing a new brand/shop I discovered when they reached out to me, Nakd. They have some super cute pieces and most are reasonably priced as well. Both my tee and jeans are from there and they sell accessories too! Have you guys heard of them before? What do you think?

Also, starting to notice that so many of the places I end up taking photos are inside nurseries. They're beautiful and I always want to take more plants home with me!

Brand to Know: ONLY CHILD

6L0A4797 6L0A4882 6L0A4851 6L0A4835 6L0A4885  
I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but one thing I really love about blogging is discovering new brands to fall in love with. Only Child is a new recent favorite and I can't get enough of this jumpsuit. Another thing that I love just as much, is when the brands are ran by women just like me! Only Child is a brand based out of Oakland and designed and created by Haley Tucker. She wanted her brand and pieces to be really versatile and steer away from fast fashion that can leave one feeling empty handed when it comes to their wardrobe. I think she nailed it! This jumpsuit is instantly my new go-to. It's incredibly comfortable and so easy to wear. It's going to be great for summer too since the fabric is light and breathable as well. THANK YOU ONLY CHILD!

Make sure and check out more of Only Child's pieces! They have some adorable tops too that will be perfect with jeans! They're definitely a brand to your eye on!


Alsooo, I just recently got myself these shoes after eyeing them and drooling over them for months and I am pretty sure they're not going to leave my feet for awhile.

Top Peasant Blouses for Spring/Summer

tonya-17 tonya-16 tonya-19 tonya-18
I've always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with peasant blouses. I love the boho style most of the time but I don't like when it looks too "costumey" and tacky. When I found this blouse at a local shop (The Please & Thank You shop) I fell in love and it changed my mind on them! This one has some great simple details that make it interesting and it's light and breezy which makes it great for the upcoming warmer days. I love tops that I can tuck into my jeans and this one is perfect for that as well. 
My favorite accessories that are going to be on repeat for awhile are definitely mules and basket bags. They literally go with so many things! I just am patiently waiting for the weather to warm up a bit so that I can wear them more often without worrying about the rain!
So back to the peasant tops, I'm going to share my top 6 favorite peasant blouses right now that are perfect for spring....and aren't over the top and feel like you just walked out of Woodstock.


1. Sessun Kimitomo Shirt (the one I am wearing!) 

Let me know what one is your favorite! I love how different each one is!


What I'm Wearing: Top: Sessun via PTY Shop (Link above)!, Jeans: RE/DONE (Similar here and here), Bag: Shop Doen, Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell via Need Supply (Similar here)

Everywear with Marks & Spencer

6L0A4669 6L0A4632 6L0A4664 6L0A4634 6L0A4682 6L0A4621
Having pieces that can easily transition from season to season, or for your busy schedule is essential. That's why I am super excited to team up with Marks & Spencer and share pieces from their new Everywear campaign that has so many great pieces that are exactly this. They can be worn so many different ways and fit a variety of styles and lifestyles. Rather than just going straight to fast fashion or pieces that won't last through the season, Marks & Spencer has created some pieces that are better quality and style so that they can be worn every where! Not only did they keep quality in mind, they still kept the pieces very stylish and classic...which is so important to me!
These mules are one of the examples from the Everywear campaign. I'm still in love with mules because they can be dressed up or down so easily. (I even got them in pink too!) Even though mules are very trendy right now, I think they're a look that will stay in style for a long time.

Some other pieces in the campaign include a trench, comfortable denim (like seen on me here!), button ups and mules. These are all perfect for any style and individual! I think they did such a great job in picking just the right pieces for every day wear and ones that go with everyone's wardrobe too. 
Make sure and check out more from Marks & Spencer's Everywear Campaign here! Let me know what you guys think and what pieces from the campaign you are liking the best!

Summer Breeze

SUGARHIGH_TONYA-16 SUGARHIGH_TONYA-13 SUGARHIGH_TONYA-50 SUGARHIGH_TONYA-31 SUGARHIGH_TONYA-28 SUGARHIGH_TONYA-36 SUGARHIGH_TONYA-37 Do me a favor...As you read this and look at these photos, please listen to Summer Breeze by Seals & Crofts. There's just something about these photos that has me repeating that song in my head. Maybe it's the goofy ass grin on my face that knows summer is right around the corner, or the fact that I felt like a kid again while I was swinging with my hair blowing in my face OR the fact that these are all film and it's just so nostalgic. I love shooting with Elisabeth because the photos always look so raw and effortless just like they used to be when film was the only option. I love the surprise that film has and the fact that you only get one shot to get that moment. There's no going back, there's no repeating until you get the "perfect" moment, you just have to hope you can capture it while it's there.
