Guys, I was about to be the best blogger and actually have this posted in time for you to BUY MY DAMN SHORTS BEFORE THEY SOLD OUT. But I failed you. Yet again….. I’m SOWWY. Ugh. I swear when I started writing this post, they were still available online in all sizes. I s-w-e-a-r. But then I checked, and bam, they’re gone. I bet everyone scooped them up for Coachella. FACK.
However, to try and make it up to you, I did lots and lots of digging to try and find you an alternative option. And I think I found some goodies. OR, maybe this will give you some inspo anyways, or maybe you have similar paperbag waist shorts in your closet and you’re thinking “WTF do I wear with these?”. I got you, boo!
I’m going to Stagecoach this year for the first time ever and I’m SO excited! I’m going with five girlfriends and it’s going to be the best. Fun fact- Country music is my favorite. There is something about it that just makes my soul happy. I can’t wait to be singing along to my favorite songs, drinking endless amounts of beer (yas!) and making memories with my babes!
Coachella is already underway, and although it’s not really something I want to ever go to, I like seeing everyones outfits. I get so much inspiration for the rest of the year! I feel like festival season is the new fashion week. I mean to be honest, I get more REAL LIFE outfit inspiration and trend direction from Coachella and Stagecoach then I do from high end designer or couture fashion. Anyone else? I’m more likely to wear denim shorts with fishnet tights this year than I am to wear a crazy over the top gown and a bird on my head or some shit. Right? I mean, you might be able to see that at Coachella too. Ha!
Like most people, I’m OBSESSED with face masks! I have so many in my medicine cabinet and am always looking for new brands. That’s probably my favorite thing to shop for at Sephora- shopping for makeup on the other hand, is so overwhelming. I think I’m the only woman who thinks that way…ha!
I feel like face masks are like shoes- you can never have too many and there are different masks for different occasions, for different skin needs, etc. So I like to keep stocked up for any little skin need that might pop up- acne, dry skin, fine lines, blah blah. All the good stuff. My skin tends to be super complex- it’s dry, but oily, I have acne, and the wrinkles are becoming more apparent now that I’m in my 30’s. YAY for getting older… it’s so fun…
The ones below are my favorites that I SWEAR by and use regularly to keep my skin in check, but I also wanted to compile some others that I’ve had my eye on to try ASAP so they’re all linked below!
And if you’ve got a mask you like, share with my on Instagram! I’d love to know which masks I should add to my never ending list.
I’ve mentioned it a few times here and there, but if you don’t know, I’m the Senior Buyer of Accessories and Jewelry at Forever 21. That means, my team and I are responsible for the styles you see, and buy, in stores and online. It feels weird to put that in writing on my blog every time… I don’t know why, I guess it’s always been something I’ve kept super separate from Worship Worthy. But lately, when I’ve met people or people have asked what I do, they’ve been surprised and have encouraged me to share it a little bit more, so here we are!
Most people think that being a Buyer means that I basically shop for a living. And to an extent, you’d be right. But there is also so much more that goes into it. My job is SO much fun, but it’s also a lot of hard work. Essentially I work on a daily basis with vendors that provide us products, and they own factories overseas to produce the goods. They send me samples, or I develop samples with them, we the decide which items we are going to buy and take into stores and from there I am involved with what colors to buy, how many units we need, what the retail price should be, etc. So as much as I am working creatively with accessories, I’m also deep into Excel sheets, financial reports and analyzing data.
My job is incredibly fun, and I’m so thankful to be where I am. I literally dreamed of being a Buyer in the fashion industry since I was 12… yes, 12. Coming to California to live my dream still feels surreal. It’s a lot of hard work, but I’m so grateful.
I thought it would be fun to share the styles that I have bought for F21, that you can get your hands on RIGHT NOW! I have to admit, it’s crazy to see these styles live, and real. Makes me so happy to see them making others happy- and proud.
Without a doubt, the question I get asked the most is, “how did you grow your hair so long?”. Actually, most of the time it’s not a question it’s just “WOW, you have so much hair.” So I thought it was about time I put together a blog post on my tips and tricks to growing out and handling this crazy mane on a day to day basis. Ready?
There is something extra cozy about a casual jumpsuit, am I right? Going to the bathroom in a jumpsuit can be a major bitch, but it’s worth it for the right one. I found this cute little number at Marshall’s randomly when Rob and I stopped in to exchange a shirt for him. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular and I just stumbled on it- isn’t it awesome when that happens? And it was $14. Win Win!
Obviously it’s too cold out to wear this bare skin, so I paired it with a cute white tee and it instantly transformed into an outfit more appropriate for February. I love that it’s loose fitting and the tie details on the straps are so cute! It’s made out of cotton, so it basically just feels like wearing pajamas, and honestly, nothing is better than that.
When the weather warms up, I’ll definitely be wearing this without a tee underneath and with some wedges or strappy sandals to make it more dressed up. Or this could be a really cute, easy bikini coverup for the beach!
