day to night

today is the first day of spring! to be honest, i personally am not ready for winter to go away fully (what can i say, i love the snow) but it’ll be nice to have a mix of warmer weather from here on out.

a post from earlier in the month inspired me today to do something similar.. instead of getting ready with me, i’m gonna show off an entire day’s worth of looks! from morning ’til evening, fitting for a little bit of spring sunshine..

so let’s get to it 😀

first up, the morning jog! still gotta look cute, even in sweats. these particular ones are by reign on the bottom && blueberry on the top, both @ collabor88. and i love the way these fit! i paired ’em with some candydoll platform sneakers && a group gift updo from truth.. with some glamistry sunglasses for the bright morning sun, and a kick of lemony, sugary energy in this tumbler also from reign!

next, it’s off to lunch with bae. we found this cute li’l sushi place that serves the most delish array of options, and allarik can’t seem to get enough of it. so i dressed appropriate (imo!) for a midday date in a short candydoll skirt and a cute socks ‘n’ heels combo (both found @ kustom9), a tank top at collabor88 by reign, with an emery denim jacket over top && a casual bag by c’est la vie.

my last stop… drinks with the girls. pumms, vivienne && i are *always* sexy when we go out together, and this blueberry dress works so perfectly for a night out with the besties! i decided to style it with a pair of thigh-high strappy sandals from reign at versus && amped up my makeup by glam affair with a bright, glossy red lip and heavier eyeliner. of course, my homegirls would be showing off on the dance floor while i get turnt on fruity drinks at the bar.. but at least i look super hot while doing so! 😉

and there ya go, three looks.. from morning ’til evening. bringing in spring with fashion is the best way to do it!

cozy in purple

hi hello! december has been kinda busy for me (as it is for everyone, i’m sure) but i’ve broken the drought of posts from me to bring you three looks..

..aaaaand a new face 😀

in case you haven’t seen, lelutka released a *bento* mesh head.. which means this head in particular is like fitmesh for the face! i’ve bounced around between mesh heads in the last year or so trying to find one that suits what i want, but lelutka’s leda head ended up being my absolute favorite. i’ve worn her for so long now that she’s become my new me face.. but i had to try the new simone bento head and i LOVE HER.

LOVE HER.

LOVE HER!

it reminds me so much of tweaking my classic avatar face, getting it just right. this of course isn’t the final shape, i am not sure it’ll *ever* be the ‘final’ shape, but i loooveeeeee ittttt. it looks enough like my leda face that it still feels like me, but still different and better and with new animations and skins (like this one from glam affair that is too cute for words) and i just.. i am completely enamored with it ♥♥

and now onto the looks!

i did three cozy looking outfits, each in purple. surprisingly purple isn’t a color i wear often, so i thought i’d give it a try for a change! these feature a lot of blueberry‘s latest releases, some truth && little bones, and to me look perfect for these colder months where jackets and long sleeves are pretty much a *must*!

lots of layers

jackets, turtlenecks, button downs, hoodies, coats, scarves.. i love the whole outerwear look in fall && winter. not only does it look seasonal, but it just looks *nice*. especially when you’re hanging out where there’s snow ‘n’ ice!

however, now that everything is mesh.. sometimes layering the old fashioned way is difficult. finding a jacket that goes over this top, a hoodie that doesn’t clip with this sweater.. it’s possible to mix ‘n’ match a layered look, but it can often be more trouble than it’s worth.

soooo i’ve put together three looks that make the layered look easy as pie, with everything already layered for you! the best thing is these tops and jackets can be customized and colorized however you want, which makes things even easier. let’s start! 😀

my tops, from right to left, are from c’est la vie, blueberry && zenith.. and each one offers a different sort of look.

on the right, is something comfy && casual. a long cardigan, with a cozy sweater underneath, is perfect for having a lounge-around sort of day. i paired it with jeans (from addams) and some super cute fringed ankle boots (by reign) to look more ready-to-go-outside, but you could just as easily pair this sweater combo with leggings and some cute slippers and be comfortable for a day at home, too!

in the middle, i’ve mixed a couple of blueberry‘s latest separates with a scarf i grabbed last year from izzie’s && a *group gift* pair of reign boots. this jacket can look more formal, especially if you wear the lovely included necklace (which you can see here on my girl pumms!), but i thought it’d look just as cute as an outerwear coat, too.

and on the left, is something absolutely perfect for snowball fights and hunting down the perfect christmas tree! this zenith top ‘n’ jacket (found @ fameshed) was too good to pass up, and with some izzie’s applier jeans && a pair of wonderfully wintry boots (from fri.day @ the arcade) pulled this look together in the best way. i look like i’d be warm enough to brave even the coldest weather, and yet still cute enough to feel fashionable while doing so!

i’m also wearing one of my absolute favorite glam affair appliers as of late, along with some really cute hairstyles from besom, little bones && exile. and each look has a nice coffee drink (all by bueno), just to make sure i stay extra warm (and caffeinated)!
