Life has endless opportunity and endless wonder if we just seek it out. Man, do I love exploring these beautiful mountains and scenery.  This was up in Sundance on a cold morning. Breathtaking views that bring you peace.

If I could wear hats every day, I would. Less upkeep with my hair and it just completes a look. I love this simple look of all neutrals. Turtlenecks are back in.

My thoughts lately:


 I often feel I'm so far behind in many aspects of my life. But then I have to remind myself, I'm only beginning, only 19. I can't compare my beginning to someone else's middle or even end. I can only compare yesterday to today and see if I have improved.

Comparison is the thief of joy. No one has the same talents or personality as you. You have your own unique role to fulfill.

provo fashion week look 2.

blouse-LC Lauren Conrad, pants-Forever 21, shoes-Charlotte Russe, bag-Patricia Nash (cross body version), watch-Winnie the Pooh, sunglasses-Shop Sosie

This is kind of an outfit of favorites. I will always love a basic white button up. Add the crochet-like details to the the front of this LC Lauren Conrad one, and it instantly updates it. Then the Forever 21 pants! Whenever I don't know what to wear, I always tend to reach for them. Without fail, I always get compliments on them. The print is so fun and crazy yet sophisticated. Then there's my beloved Patricia Nash tote that's been through thick and thin with me, traveling and carrying books and such. I can't get enough of Miss Nash's Italian tooled leather designs.

This look was from the second day of Provo Fashion Week. I'm glad I went to the second show because, although there were some of the same designers from the night before, there were new designers with amazing, breathtaking creations!

As the weather turns colder, all I want to do is watch movies and drink hot chocolate.

What is your favorite thing to do as the leaves change?

provo fashion week look 1.

top-Old Navy, skirt-Nordstrom Rack, heels-Betsey Johnson, clutch-from Cambodia, sunglasses-Shop Sosie, earrings-Francesca's, necklace-from Vietnam

photos by Mailee Yang

My official classification of my style is earthy & elegant. It depends on the day which side I'm leaning towards more. For the VIP Event of Provo Fashion Week that I had the opportunity to attend, I went with this outfit because I felt it was elevated and dressed up but still earthy.

We grabbed these shots quickly before we had to go inside.

I just love anything scalloped and the metallic gold Betsey Johnson heels are no exception! My "clutch" was really a lunch bag that was given to us on my tour in Southeast Asia with the Young Ambassadors. I like creating multiple uses for things I own. :) And then the very J.Crew-esque necklace was found at a market in Vietnam. Unfortunately, before the night ended, my necklace broke. Haha. It's all good, you just roll with it.

What's your color that you always go back to when shopping or picking something to wear? 
(mine is obviously olive green)

ethereal earth.

After seeing these photos, it reminded me of a Shop Ruche look book. Not necessarily one in certain, but the desert/adventurous/delicate vibes seem similar to their look books. I've always been a huge fan of Shop Ruche. They never fail to have the cutest things. 

This look has always been a favorite of mine. It has some of my favorite elements: a cream crochet blouse + olive green skirt + my suede booties.

I just love this location! It's called Rock Canyon. The greenery changing colors in the background is breathtaking! 

Feeling so thankful for all of the blessings I have! Thank you for viewing!

tribal and olive.

Olive green will probably always be my favorite color. It's the color of my eyes and it complements my skin tone. Whenever I go shopping I'm drawn to the color. You'll see me wearing a lot of it.

I guess I have a thing for printed pants. I have quite a few. I bought these ones on super sale at F21 a while back and have loved how versatile they are!

My thoughts lately:



I feel as if I've been being a little too nostalgic of late and wishing some things could be the way they were. Such a mistake! We should neither live in the past nor the future, but today. Now. Not looking at regrets or better times in the past or waiting for better times ahead but making today the day. Growing. Learning. Becoming something better. Live in the present and realize that you've come so far and still have so far to go.

the canyon.

I've worn this jumpsuit before but I just didn't do it justice the first time around. It had been gathering dust in my closet so I took advantage of the lookout point, Squaw Peak (Provo's make out spot), close to me and went exploring. We took these at 9 am and man, was it freezing! It was all worth it though! I feel more comfortable taking pictures in nature. That's where I got my start in modeling: forests and in trees. 

As we traveled up, we found so many locations and hidden wonders. It was absolutely spectacular.

Have you been exploring recently? Go find the beauty.
