Just for looks!

(Click on the link for a fun video surprise!)

Hello Everyone!

As many of you know, I am obsessed with a certain fruit... Can you guess what it is by this post??

Could you tell or was it my Bohme Pineapple blouse and earrings that gave it away? ;) 

Funny thing about my obsession with pineapples.. I hate eating them. I've tried pineapple smoothies, dole whips, and even grilled pineapple and my taste buds just cannot stand them! But I absolutely love the look and the vibe of a pineapple. 

I love anything tropical. I love the feeling of summer and being on a beach and pineapples just give off that same vibe to me! Isn't that funny?? 

Anyways with today's post I have my pineapple blouse and earrings from Bohme Boutique. Paired with a teal pencil skirt from Abercrombie and Fitch. And my signature black booties that I seem to wear in every post haha! Oh! And I thought I would add a cute little purse to bring in another pop of color. So I have my little cross-body Hollister purse and I just LOVE the detail on this thing! I'm not a purse lover.. so most of my bags you'll ever see me wearing is either a mini backpack or a little cross-body bag because I cannot stand big purses getting in my way and having to carry them everywhere. I just find them a hassle! But this purse is perfect for what I have to carry. It's just the right size to fit my phone, wallet, and maybe a lipstick or two. 

Today I decided to add something new to my post. I started it small but I'm hoping it'll grow as I keep going. I shared a short clip of my outfit for you guys. I'm hoping to start my own Vimeo account so that I can add some cute videos of my outfits, make up, and lots of adventures that I will be going on from here on out.  Unfortunately I couldn't get the video to work alone in this post so I had to share it off of my Vimeo account. So be sure to click the link and see what you think!! What are your guys' thoughts and ideas?? I would love to get some feedback to see if this is a good idea! :)

You can either comment below or send me feedback via the feedback button on the bottom of the screen! Thanks for reading and taking some time out of your day to see what's up lately! Check out my Instagram at Kenz_Kaye to see some things I may not post on here specifically. Thanks!!

Starting the Semester

I was surprisingly really nervous to start this semester. A month off of school is a long time! (Not that I didn't LOVE having a month off) BUT after a month it was a lot harder to get back into the swing of things. This semester is going to be a lot different than those in the past. My busy life, is only going to get busier! It's definitely going to take some getting used to. So I hope that along with all of the crazy stuff going on in my life, that I can still grow and become a better blogger in the process.

Funny story about this dress I'm wearing.. I happened to wear this outfit to school earlier this week and you know everything was fine. I came in the next day to my class and saw one of my professors wearing the same dress! So I don't know if that was just a coincidence or she just felt SO inspired from my outfit that she just had to go out and buy my same dress. #trendsetter 

Haha totally kidding! This dress happens to come from Bohme Boutique. It is one of my favorite styles of dresses. This style works so well for all sorts of body types! I love the hourglass shape and the pleated skirt. I really love the 3/4 length sleeve as well. Sweater tights are also a good thing to own! I never had sweater tights before but they are a real life saver! Especially in this freezing cold winter weather. Adding to my winter coat collection is a outerwear coat from Hollister. Can you tell I like maroon?? I swear I wear maroon, black, and gray EVERY DAY. Maybe this semester I'll work on getting outside of that color palette and switch things up for you guys ;) Finishing this look I have my maroon booties from Forever Young Shoes. And I LOVE THEM. They are super comfortable and have a thick heel so I don't feel like I'm going to slip and fall when walking around in the snow on campus.

Anyways thanks for reading this super quick post about my first little dive into the new semester! Let's hope it's a good one!

Blog's First Birthday!!

It all started a year ago... On January 4, 2015 I uploaded my first post. (I know I'm an hour early.. But hey, it's Jan. 4 somewhere) Back then I had a different blog domain, a different layout, and I'm pretty sure I didn't write much. But I was learning. And I continue to learn and grow still. I was very shy of the camera back then and often times laughed at myself because I had no idea what I was doing and hardly got out of my comfort zone. It took me a while but I've noticed progress in my posts. And I hope I continue to progress and get better this year. I think it is so much fun to look back and see a difference through my posts. The other day I went back to my old blog and saw some of the posts and couldn't help feeling nostalgic. 

2015 was an incredible journey. I've grown so much as an individual. I learned a lot about myself. I can honestly say it was probably the toughest year of my life so far. Full of ups and downs and big decisions. Being graduated and all and starting my second semester of college really soon, I continue to grow and learn about myself and my interests. I'm still trying to figure out my place in this world. I have a good feeling about 2016... Here are some of my resolutions/things I'm looking forward to this year... 

In 2016 I will..
 smile more.

Serve others.

Laugh LOTS.

Find what I'm passionate about. 

Be in my first musical outside of high school.

Drink more water!

Stand up for what I believe in. 

Worry less.

Give more compliments. 

Make new friends. 

Take more pictures. 

MOVE OUT (!!!)

Spend more time outdoors.

Learn how to cook more family recipes.

Put myself out there/Get out of my shell.

Create lots of music.

Dye my hair a crazy color (!!!) 

Go on more adventures. 

Stop being afraid of the unknown. 

Find time to relax.

Let people know how much I care about them.

Find some fun in every day.

Stop thinking negatively about myself.

Dream often. 

Learn something new.

Be Kind.

Visit the temple AT LEAST every month.

Stop being afraid of being my silly self. 
(btw in this pic I was trying so hard to be serious but couldn't stop laughing and couldn't help but share it with you guys) 

2016 is going to be a great year. I'm really looking forward to it. I have high hopes my friends. Maybe it's just my optimistic personality, but I know that life is NEVER as bad as it may seem. Everything always seems to work out in the end. 

In this post I'm wearing the most comfortable dress I own from Bohme Boutique. Deer necklace in which I got as a Christmas Gift. My white fur vest from Wet Seal. And of course, my maroon tights with black booties from Forever Young Shoes. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post as much as I did.
I can't believe it's my first year mark!
Thank you SO much for reading, I can't wait to see what this year has in store!
