TAYLORIINA

People are asking me what has happened to my blog and I think I owe it to everyone who supports me through whatever some sort of explanation. My blog was really steady for months until about January and that is the same to say for my life. January hit and well, I went through a breakup, which was a shock to me. I hate sounding like a girl from a movie but, I felt really lost. I was very comfortable for two years and bam. Then I started my last semester of school, and a new internship that consumed all my time (and it was hell) and I was still working. I was extremely overwhelmed, everything in my life was either starting or ending and I felt like.. who the hell am I anymore, every morning. I wasn’t even sad, I was just like, looking at myself like I wasn’t me. So I took time to figure out who I was, who I am, who I want to be, and so on and so forth.

Well, now I have some grounding again even though there are still other parts of my life that are going left and right and all over the place. Though I love my blog so much, it needs so revamping to go along with my own revamping. Which is why I’m starting this new project with myself and three of my closest friends to show the world what we’ve been through, how we get through it, and how we excel. I’ll still continue changing this blog around, introducing some more personal aspects and some more style aspects. So I just want to thank everyone who’s stayed with me and expressed anything to help me. I hope the project with my friends will be out within the next few weeks and I’m really excited for everyone to see it, but I just wanted to once again thank everyone for cares because it means the world to me.

sideofjupiter asked: where did you get that shelving unit that's behind you in all of your pictures?

Lol probably either pier 1 or the container store

♫ Party Next Door, Break From Toronto

This whole mix-tape isn’t necessarily new, but it’s all I can listen to lately. Hopefully the most I post it, the more people listen, so when I’m out more DJs play it. This is all I want to hear.

I’ve been getting sick, boo. But I was so comfortable today, even though my Mom hated my outfit when I left my house this morning Oh well! I felt very Christine Centenera-ish. Loved it.

I tried to take my pictures somewhere new in my house.. obviously it didn’t work out too well. Obviously, I can’t take the sun in my eyes that early in the morning. I was really considering starting to cut my face out in pictures because I don’t know, I’ve been looking off in everything lately but.. who cares. Yeah so, this was my outfit last Friday to my internship!

Usually I like to wear dressier shoes to my internship because it boosts my ego a little bit, I feel more professional. However, with the snow that’s been attacking NYC it’s impossible. But! I’m organizing more posts besides OOTD’s for you guys and I hope everyone had an amazing Valentines day and weekend :)

Burberry Spring 2014

So I was flipping through magazines at my internship yesterday (we get W, I can never find it anywhere near me) and I kept seeing this. Everywhere.imageimageimage

I’ve always been a fan of Burberry, but this, this is breathtaking. I’ve never wanted to be a billionaire so badly. I know that pastels and floral for spring isn’t anything revolutionary (cue a Devil Wears Prada line) but something about this to me is just perfection.

In case you didn’t know, I’m not a billionaire. I know, shocker. However this is definitely going to inspire some of my Spring. Here’s my three favorite looks from Burberry Prorsum’s Spring 2014 RTW Runway show and a few affordable pieces that I think connect.

My suggestion is certainly not to wear everything at once, but to of course just try bits and pieces if you like it. I think there’s so many different aspects of this collection to pull from, whether it be the sheerness, lace, pastels, or floral. It sets the perfect tone for spring, which I am counting down the days to, basically ONE MONTH!

I’m still getting the hang of taking pictures again, I looked half asleep in every picture I took this morning. But this was my outfit that I wore to my internship, I was sooo comfortable.

♫ Elijah Blake, Sing For Me featuring Rick Ross & The Game

I just heard this today, and I wont mind if it blows up tomorrow and is played on repeat on every radio station. The beat makes me so happy & nostalgic in the best way. I love music that sounds like summertime. Enjoy!

HI BABIES! Literally been forever. But I’m starting again, for good. I can’t promise my Outfit of the Day everyday just because it’s winter and I am endlessly frustrated with having to wear jackets. However, it’ll slowly get warmer and I can come out of my cocoon.
Anyways, I hope everyones had a good 2014. Life’s really crazy. For me, it feels like the ball drop and a bomb exploded because everything for me did a 360. But I’m finally finding my footing again after all the craziness I’ve been going through these few months. I now intern for a designer and I’m taking my last few classes at college, so some days when I have my internship I’ll have a *classier* outfit for you guys.
This was actually my outfit going to class yesterday, I woke up today with spider bites (they’re so ugly) and had to go to the ER and was basically in sweats and uggs all day.
Hoodie: Urban Outfitters (BDG)
Button Up: Target (Mossimo)
Jacket: Vintage
Jeans: Uniqlo
Shoes: Timberland
Hat: Urban Outfitters (Married to the MOB)
I also HAD to have on a long sleeved shirt under this, but all of my layers including that shirt were loose so I didn’t feel restricted at all. I felt like a honey bun. I was just so sit of wearing the same puffy bundled up jackets.
I also really loved my hair because it didn’t get in any knots like that (thank God). If you have hair like me, then wear any kind of hoodie or collar really just causes a problem over there.
Oh, my phone case is also Urban Outfitters.
