hi! been a little bit, huh? what can i say.. stuff comes up, motivation goes down, life.. finds a way of getting *in* the way.

so i’m trying to play a li’l bit of catch up here today, showing off some things that i should have shown off already.. and the theme is rompers!

and we’re starting off with tee*fy! i love just about everything this brand makes, and azure does the combo of sexy ‘n’ cute so, so well. the plunging neckline and short shorts are perfect for warmer days, while the sweet floral print && belted waist give it juuuuust enough cute!

next up is paper arrow. i snagged this at the last round of the epiphany && i lucked out in getting this soft pink option. the satin texture for the fabric and the tie at the waist could make this romper something dressy *or* something super casual.

lastly, we have reign from the last round of collabor88. the pattern options in the fatpack for this romper were *so* perfect for a summertime kinda feel. bright hot pink + navy blue is my absolute favorite color combo and this romper with this tropical floral combined them perfectly~

my apologies, sincerely, for being so absent lately.. but i’m honestly thankful the grid keeps on chuggin’ even when i’m not there. i get to come back to so many lovely new releases && events to check out, and have a backlog of beautiful things to show off!

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!

it’s been a good minute since i took pics somewhere *other* than my sky platform. i think it’s just become wayyyy too easy to set up a scene in the sky, or use a backdrop prop (of which i now have a bajillion) that’s already done for me, and use that instead of gettin’ out there && exploring the grid.

so you know what i say to that? NOT TODAY!

me ‘n’ my three kittens actually teleported somewhere that wasn’t an event or sale and did some good, old fashioned sim hopping. i loved the scenery on this sim, with the pretty red rocks and river and greenery. it may not match my shiny-urban-camo look exactly, but that’s okay.. that’s just part of using someone else’s sim for picture taking. and honestly, it felt really nice to see something that wasn’t put together by my own derp decorating skills.. for that alone, it was totally worth it~

get ready with me

are you a fan of get ready with me videos on youtube? i sure am.. one of my favorites does these kinds of videos all the time (with guests that are very relevant to my interests) && i lovvveee watching them. i am no makeup guru, either in rl or in sl, but it makes me feel like i *am* getting ready with them..

so i figured i might do one myself, second life style!

get ready with me

it was the perfect excuse to use this glorious closet from reign‘s latest arcade gacha. i’m a big fan of scream queens && even did an ‘accidental’ chanel oberlin look a while back.. so when i saw this closet (along with the rest of the items in the gacha!), i about had a *fit*.

of course, i’m wearing bits ‘n’ bobs from the reign gacha, as well as a super cute new hairstyle from truth out @ uber that you can wear with or without the hat accessory, as well as some candydoll goodies from whore couture && an older little bones animated makeup gacha item to really tie the get ready with me vibe all together!
