So the past couple months have been hard. I’ve just been going through a lot of personal changes and such. I considered stopping blogging for a while. I can’t really put into words, the way I was feeling. Just.. constantly uninspired I guess. I think these past months I’ve been so busy trying to fit in with groups of people. Which in the long run made me lose my inspiration.You can’t be inspired if you’re with people who don’t think that’s “cool” or even acceptable. Well, that being said, I don’t really care about what people think of me anymore. A good friend told me: “Don’t chase people. Be yourself. Do your own thing and work hard. The right people-the ones who really belong in your life- will come to you.” I really need to take this to heart. Anyways, I just felt like sharing this to you. Hopefully, I will be able to write soon! (: xx Hailey
Hey guys! So, I just wanted to write on here that I’m now on instagram. I try to post often, and I put a lot of outfit of the day and hair pics. So, you should go follow me.[: xxx Hailey
You all have those times where a seemingly new trend comes out, and you just don’t understand why it’s such a rage. Why do people like this trend so much? You then convince yourself that it was simply a innovative fail and will end soon. But then, a couple months after the trend is not-so-popular, you actually get the nerve to try this trend for yourself, and find that you are actually in love with the trend. This is how my “relationship” if you will, with the high-low skirt started. If you are not at all familliar with how this skirt looks, I’ll get you all caught up.(:

This semi-viral trend, popular for its famous “Business on the back, party in the front” look, is very versatile, and easy to dress down or up. & the best part? These dresses are very simple to make yourself! Maybe I’ll make a tutorial later! (:
I pass this mural nearly every time I go to work, and for the longest time I’ve wanted to take pictures by it forever! This outfit was inspired by nautical themes. The dress is a navy & white striped, and I paired it with a simple red bandana, & belt my friend let me use. It displays different tourist places in the world.
Thanks for reading guys! xx
I can’t believe that the summer is alomst halfway over for me! I’m sad that soon I will not have such a flexible schedule, but am excited to see what this school year will bring. In the meantime, I have been loving the balmy weather we’ve been having, allowing me to wear clothes like this! (: I love the tie-shirt trend,(forever21) and I paired it with this dark-wash denim skirt from Target. As well as a fun top-knot hairdo and John Lennon inspired glasses also from forever21.
Summer time is the only time I even think about using nail polish. I’m extremely picky with my nail colors for some reason. I always have been. I like light, subtle matte colors, otherwise I don’t wear it at all. I’m not really sure why, that’s just how I’ve always been. Anyways, I don’t really like paying for nail polish anyways, so the only time I use it is when my friends have it available to me. xx
It feels like summer is finally in full swing! I’ve been on break for almost a week now and enjoying the wonderful aesthetics of it all. This past week I was able to attend my cousin’s wedding. Congrats to them, they seem very happy together, and I hope that God will bless you with many, many years of marriage!
I absolutely love the color of this dress! Its bright yellow was kind of daring on such a ablaze evening, as it was almost 80 degrees outside. I paired it with my brown earth-toned necklace, and a brown belt. Along with a pair of white sandals,(not pictured.) and a silver, white ring. What do you guys think of this outfit? (Disclaimer:my feet were tired, so I went barefoot at the reception, which was held outside. That’s why I seem to be a raw-footed savage.)
On a completely different note, how do you like the theme of this blog? I want your guys’ opinions on it! Comment below or you can mention/follow me on twitter! (
All of my girls with long hair will understand the certain urge you get to just cut off all your hair. While most people just go with their hearts desire and cut it, I’ve just never been brave enough to do so. For some unknown (internal) reason I’m just not willing to just chop my hair. So, I opted for a “faux cut.”
What do you guys think? My friend is like amazing at doing hair, & she simply pin-curled my hair, and this is the outcome I really dig the way it turned out. Thoughts? xx
I’ve mentioned several times in various blog posts that I have a job. Well, I call it an internship. Sometimes though, it’s just easier to write/say job. So therefore, I call it a job. Job/Internship whatever you like to call it, that’s what I have. So, let’s start a time line of sorts. Basically, I started my internship in October of 2011. How did I get this “gig” you ask? Well, it was quite simple, (for me) actually. I knew that I wanted to be involved in the fashion industry, but being as young as I am, finding a way in is, well, somewhat difficult. My dad, being the opportunist he is, found a way around my age. He did his research on many ubiquitous dress shops in my area, went in to ask if perhaps I could intern. We found one we really liked and talked to the owner of the shop. My boss, was very welcoming to this idea. She soon was talking about paying me, and perhaps someday passing the shop down to me, if I had ever gotten good enough where I could handle it. Of course, I have to work there for a while longer before I can put that into place. Anyways, I have worked weekly there for almost 9 months now. Now, you ask, what do I do there? Well, since I am an intern, I have the power of basically telling my boss what I’d like to learn. I am actually going to start learning pattern making soon. My boss is originally from Italy, and she came over here after college to pursue her business. Now, recently she made a prom dress, and was asked to go to New York. She is not sure if she will go, but being her intern, if she goes I will be able to go with her, and intern on the Runways! On this whole topic of dress making and runways, she also asked me what I’d like to learn, and of course I said pattern making. So, basically I need to draw some designs out and give them to her, so I can start as soon as possible!
So that’ my job! I hope you guys enjoyed reading about what I do!! xx Look later for more updates! And feel free to mention (or follow!!!) me on twitter if you have any questions. (Username:@haialeylinn)
I felt a little creative this weekend. Not only did I spend two out of my three days off at Starbucks, but I also got to spend some time with friends I haven’t seen in a while.
On Sunday I was gone almost all day. I decided I wanted to do some type of fun new up-do. I’ve always wanted to try a beehive,and this is what I came up with. After I took these pictures I decided to try to redo it, as I think it just looks like a over-sized messy bun. I’ve come to the conclusion that every time you do this hairstyle, it gets better and better! What do you guys think of this look?
