Hi hi! I hope you’re enjoying the heat. I’ve been basking in the sun and finding safety in front of my tower fan. I love taking walks in this weather, but I really don’t like sweating. Remember that episode of Victorious when Tori had never sweat in her life? I wish I could be like her. 

This is one of my favorite tanks! It’s merch from my girl Halsey. I’m usually not into graphic tops, but I love this design and the stark contrast of the black and white. I always wear it with my black Converse since the colors look so great together. Usually, I tuck this top into my denim shorts, but it also looks cute untucked with leggings.

I topped this look off with Katy Perry’s INDI and my Sunice sunglasses. Remember, CLUNKSTER25, 25% off ;)

Hey babes! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. If you didn’t see on my Insta stories, I got my hair cut! I chopped off eight inches, which isn’t the first time I’ve cut a significant amount of my hair, but it’s still really exciting. I was holding on to my mermaid hair for a while, but I saw pictures of my split ends and was disgusted. So I took the plunge, and I’m so happy! My head feels so much lighter. 

I have a super summery look for you all today! My mom got me this adorable sweater tank that looks so cute with my bralette. The cut of the top is so interesting and looks great with my denim shorts

I got these sandals forever ago, but they’re still in surprisingly good shape! They’re the types of shoes that I can wear with both casual and dressy looks, which I love. I topped everything off with some spritzes of Coconut Passion by Victoria’s Secret (screw them but it smells so good :( ) and my gold heart sunglasses.

Do you have any fun plans for your hair this summer? Let me know in the comments!

top (from my cousin). bralette. shorts. sneakers. sunglasses.

Hello, my beautiful readers! I hope you’re having a lovely week so far. It’s been nice and sunny in Boston, which is a nice change from the humidity and rain we had for a bit there. I always prefer the sunshine.

Today, I’m featuring one of my favorite tops in my closet. It used to be my cousin’s, and you can definitely tell that it’s straight out of the 90s, between the colors and pattern - which I LOVE! They’re probably my favorite parts of the top. I also love how flowy and loose it is. It’s perfect for those hot days in the summer, but it’s not necessarily a crop top. Fun fact, it also has a pocket! 

I paired this top with my denim shorts and black Converse, and wore my new bralette! My old one is starting to get a little worn, so I got this cutie from Aerie a couple weeks ago. It’s a little shorter than my other one, but it has cups, so I have a little extra support, which is never a bad thing.

Comment the weather where you are!

Hello, my friends! I hope you all had a lovely heat wave this weekend. I spent it in the air conditioning eating popcorn and cleaning my apartment. Something about physically cleaning my surroundings always puts me in a better state of mind. I’ve also been in “throw everything away” mode from moving houses, so I’m riding that high for as long as I can.

Today, I wanted to share one of my favorite pairs of shorts with you all. They’re insanely comfortable, not too short, and so versatile. I like to wear them to barbecues and other social events during the summer. Cloth shorts like this and paper bag shorts have been really trendy lately. I need to get my hands on some more pairs, and I’ve been wanting to try bike shorts too! 

Usually, I wear a black top with these. I wore a black bodysuit with them the other day and it looked adorable. The first is a hand-me-down crop top from my cousins that I absolutely love. The cutouts make it so unique and flirty. I love the shape with the shorts. The second is the $5 top I got at Zara that I shared a couple days ago! Right after I posted that look, I realized I lost that shirt :( Please pray that we’re reunited soon! Words can’t describe how passionate I am about this top, to be honest.

Anyway, I chose to wear my gold flip flops with number one (I feel like I’m on Let’s Make a Deal), and my black Converse with look number two. I also paired the looks with different Sunice sunglasses and Katy Perry Fragrances

Hey cuties! I’m so excited to share this look with you all. While my mom and I were cleaning out my house, I found this top that I used to wear as a sleep shirt when I was little. It used to be massive on me, but as soon as I pulled it out of its bin, I knew it would look adorable as a crop top. 

I brought it back to Boston with me and took some scissors to it, and I’m so proud of the result! I took some others back with me so I can do the same. I love getting creative and crafty :’) 

High-waisted bottoms really complement how I cut the top, so I wore my black shorts and black Converse to match. I finished everything off with some 90s half-up-half-down pigtails.

Hi friends! I hope you’re all enjoying this sunny July. I’ve been spending my time moving out of my childhood home and into a beautiful one that I can’t wait to decorate! Life is a bit overwhelming at the moment, but great things are happening and I’m really excited. Sometimes the things that overwhelm you the most are the best!

You guys saw these pants a couple weeks ago, and because I’m so obsessed with them, I figured I’d show you how I style them when I’m not working. I absolutely love the way this crop top looks with these pants, but belly shirts are a no-no at my job! This top is kind of hard to explain; it twists at the bottom, not like a knot, but a simple twist in the fabric that makes such a big difference. It’s so unique! This top looks so beautiful with really any bottoms that I pick. I got it at Zara for $5. The sale goddesses absolutely blessed me that day!

I topped off this cute casual look with my black Converse, another thing I could never wear to work, and my favorite Sunice sunglasses. I also spritzed on some Mad Love, which is super floral-y and sweet. Perfect for a floral look!

Happy Monday, my loves! Today’s look is also brought to you by my increasing separation anxiety from Disney World. I wore this on our last full day when we went to Magic Kingdom, my favorite park! It’s home to Big Thunder Mountain Roller Coaster, my favorite ride of all time. I have so many amazing memories in Magic Kingdom. I went to Disney World for the first time when I was six, and my parents and I ate dinner at the castle. We met Cinderella in the elevator, and she asked me what my baby doll’s name was. When we saw her later in the dining room, she went out of her way to say “Hi, Isabella!” to my doll. I was (and still am) so in awe of the fact that she actually remembered her name! 

Anyway, since it was a little chilly when I went as a twenty-one year old, I wore my lighter leggings and my Star Wars letters. This cropped tee is great for chilly days because it covers the parts of me that usually get cold, but it doesn’t make me overheated! I wore this flannel and tied it around my waist when it started getting sunny. 

My rose gold Minnie ears have to be my favorite part though! I had been looking forward to getting these ears for literal months before we actually got to Disney. I loved them so much, I didn’t take them off for the entire trip and for about a week after I got home.

Hello hello! For today’s look, I’m throwing it back to Spring Break, when my best friend Kennedy took me to Disney World! I wore this on our last day there :( I was so sad, but we made the most of it! We went to Disney Springs and bought a bunch of souvenirs, I drank a lovely Frosé, and we hopped on a plane back to cold old Boston! It’s warm here now, but words can’t express how disappointing it was to spend a week in the warmest, happiest place on Earth and land in the tundra. 

Anyway, this is one of my favorite summer outfits. I bought this top from Serengetee when I was a rep for them a couple years ago, and I’ve been obsessed with it/them ever since. #NorthOnTopReps for life! I always wear it with this black bralette. During the summer, I love to wear this top with my cloth black shorts. I love the way the shapes of the top and shorts complement each other, and the fact that they’re high-waisted is a bonus. 

I wore my black Converse and Sunice sunglasses literally every day that I was in Disney. If you’re in the market for some summer shades, check Sunice out! They have the cutest, most unique styles, and you can get 25% off your order when you use my code, CLUNKSTER25!

Hey babes! I hope your weekend was fabulous. I got to spend mine with my mom! We went to the Institute of Contemporary Art, which I had surprisingly never been to in the four years that I’ve lived in Boston. It was so cool! They featured a piece by Ragnar Kjartansson called The Visitors, and it was hands down the most beautiful piece of art I’ve ever seen. I highly recommend checking it out if you can! I get goosebumps just thinking about it.

Speaking of goosebumps, I wore this outfit back when it was still a little chilly. This sweater usually keeps me warm enough without a jacket, but it’s not super heavy, which is nice. I always wear it with my black bralette and leggings. Sometimes I’ll wear boots, but most of the time I’ll wear my sneakers or moccasins. I always feel so cute and cozy.

I threw it back to sophomore year Kristen and wore my hair half-up-half-down, but left the choker in 2017. I also sprayed on some Indi by Katy Perry because it makes me feel so warm inside.

Sometimes I miss dressing cozy like this, but then I see the sun shining and remember how much I love summer. Do you have any cool plans coming up? Let me know in the comments!

If you’re following me on Instagram, you know that I spent my Spring Break in Disney World with my best friend Kennedy! I had so much fun with her, and I wish I could go back every day. So, I figured I’d share some of the looks I wore to the parks with you guys! Here’s one that I wore on our second day, which we spent at Animal Kingdom, Kennedy’s favorite park.

We kicked off our day with the Pandora ride, which absolutely blew my mind. If anything, it’s actually underrated. I highly recommend it. Then we ate french fries while we tried to avoid a swarm of weird looking birds (they weren’t snipes, even though I did flip out when I saw Kevin). We hung out at Dino Land for a while, rode Expedition Everest while the sun was setting, and finished off the evening with a nighttime safari ride. It was so cool!

Since we were at Animal Kingdom, I figured it was the perfect time to break out my “Squad Goals” crop top, featuring, Simba, Timon, and Pumba. I wore my high-waisted shorts, which looked awesome with the cut of the tee, and my neutral flannel since it was a little chilly while we were there. Rude.

When we were in the sun, I wore my adorable Sunice Sunglasses. But when we went on rides with screens, I threw on my blue light glasses. I’ll write a more in-depth review on them another time, but I get super sick when I deal with a lot of screens, and stupidly didn’t wear them on Mission Space, a ride in which there’s a screen pressed against your face as you’re shaken like you’re in space, the day before. It probably would’ve been really fun if I had my glasses. So I wore them the next day, and I felt a lot better.

Brace yourselves: I’m not wearing black leggings.

Don’t worry, I haven’t (completely) lost my mind, I’m just trying to switch things up a bit! I’m always on here complaining about things I have that I love but never wear, so I decided to actually do something about that and wear these adorable funky pants that an ex got me as a birthday present. I may have bad taste in boys, but they have great taste in presents!

Usually I wear these leggings with a black crop top, but this time I wore a bodysuit, and I really loved the way it looked. I’ve actually never worn these pants with black boots before either, so I was really pleasantly surprised.

I topped this look off with my new denim jacket, which I’ve been absolutely obsessed with since I got it. I’ll spare you the details and profess my love for it in another post.

And last but not least, I wore my round Sunice sunglasses that I’m also obsessed with. I thought I lost them the other day and almost cried.

Hopefully, you’ll be seeing a lot more patterned pants around here. Where do you buy funky pants? Let me know in the comments!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, loves! I hope everyone had a fun holiday weekend. I went to a couple parties and spent some time with some people I’m ~lucky~ to have in my life.

Speaking of things I’m grateful for, where would I be without my girl Halsey? If you haven’t already gathered from the amount I wear this sweatshirt, I’m a huge Halsey fan. She also happens to make amazing, comfy merchandise that I wear to death. I got some yucky stuff on this sweatshirt not too long ago, but I went to town with some stain remover and now she’s as good as new :’)

Another piece of clothing that I’m lucky to have is my fuzzy leggings, which I also post about way too much! I wore jeans for the first time in a while last week, and I was reminded of why I’m always in leggings. Jeans make me feel so restricted and uncomfortable, even if they do look cute! Now that the weather’s getting nicer, I’ll probably start transitioning into lighter leggings and my denim shorts. But these babies will always be a ride or die for me.

I topped off this look with my black Timbs, Killer Queen perfume, and Sunice Sunglasses. I’m so happy to be an ambassador for this awesome brand! If you’re planning on snagging these adorable sunnies, use my code CLUNKSTER25 for 25% off your order ;)

Happy hump day, cutie pies! What have you done with the first half of this week? I’ve watched a ton of reality TV and did so much laundry. I also blew a fuse in my kitchen. That was fun.

I got this sweater at dELiA*s a whiiiile back and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. It’s super comfortable and really, really heavy, which is perfect for the colder temperatures of this lovely season (by the way, it was in the 60s in Boston for the past two days, but now we’re back down to 30 degrees. What a tease.). These spikes are just so cool. This sweater is relatively old, so they’re loose and falling off a little, which is sad. But you know I’m gonna wear it to absolute death.

I wore my black Timbs with my fuzzy leggings. I recently learned that I should be hand-washing these particular leggings, and I wonder if that’ll make them last longer. I’m experimenting with one of my pairs, so stay tuned!

My hair was in a bun when I took this photo because I was having a horrible hair day! The bun looked cuter in person, but in this picture, I look like a goth founding father. Life is like that sometimes. But I actually put a ton of effort into my makeup because a sweater this extra deserves makeup that’s just as extra. It’s go big or go home with this beauty. I don’t think I’ve ever not worn my Kat Von D lipstick with it!

Hey cuties! I hope your February is going well so far. My sorority sisters and I watched the Super Bowl together last night, and we had so much fun! I truly don’t know what I’d do without them. They made the most boring game in the world so funny.

This olive button-down shirt is one of my favorites, but as I say so often, I don’t wear it enough! I think it’s because one time I underestimated how heavy the fabric was and wore it on a way too hot day. I showed up somewhere and didn’t realize until later that I had the biggest pit stains! Now I make sure to wear it when I know I’ll be in a non-sweaty environment, which is pretty unpredictable. I can’t believe I just typed that sentence. I should start wearing it more this winter.

I wore my fleece-lined leggings and tan Timberlands, which I’ve been living in lately. I did some light makeup and straightened my hair. These glasses are from Sunice Glasses, too! They’re called The Club, and I love them so much. They’re similar to a pair of sunglasses I used to have that broke, may they rest in peace. Check out all of the sunglasses on Sunice’s website, and be sure to use my code, CLUNKSTER25, for 25% off your order! Then DM me and tell me which ones you got!!!

This week, I challenge you to wear something you haven’t worn in a while. If it doesn’t spark joy, Marie Kondo it! Have a great day!

Happy February! Can you believe we’re already in the second month of 2019? Time really does fly. I don’t mean to rush things, but I’m really looking forward to when I can wear shorts again. It’s been in the single digits in Boston lately, so I’ve staying bundled up and trying to remind myself why I continue to live in the Northeast.

This look is from a simpler, warmer time when I didn’t need to wear sleeves. I decided to style my comfy Nirvana pajama pants with my simple black tank and black Converse. This is one of the most comfortable looks I wear. I highly recommend utilizing your pajamas in every aspect of your wardrobe. Keeping things all black and lowkey really make the Nirvana logo pop. I braided my hair back into a ponytail and didn’t wear makeup. I’m pretty sure it was still too hot to wear makeup when I took this picture. Remember those days?

I’m really excited to talk about these sunglasses! Remember that pair of round frames I used to wear a lot? Well guess who left them on the T? Thankfully, Sunice Glasses reached out and I’m now offering a discount code for their website! Use CLUNKSTER25 on your order for 25% on your order of gorgeous sunnies. This style is called The Retro, and it has matte black rims. I’ve never seen that before, and I’m absolutely obsessed. I would highly recommend checking them out.

Nope. None. Well, that’s an exaggeration. I have a ton of pairs of Charlotte Russe jeans in all different colors that I tell myself I’ll need to wear at some point in my life. Sometimes, I do! Just two months ago I wore my blue jeans for a photoshoot for work, and last Halloween I wore my tan jeans when I was Rey from Star Wars. But aside from when I take them out to play, my jeans always stay in the chest of clothes that I only wear once in a blue moon.

I don’t have anything against jeans, I’ve just always had a problem finding some that fit me perfectly. I’ve been on the hunt for a good pair of baggy boyfriend jeans for a while now with no luck (if you know of a good pair, tell me in the comments!). I have a small waist, big butt, and thick thighs, so jeans just aren’t comfortable. I stockpiled all those pairs of Charlotte Russe jeans because they fit me the best.

But skinny jeans aren’t as cute as they once were, and I obviously prefer leggings. I wore this look to a Denim themed mixer (the last one I ever went to, RIP), and I’m pretty proud of how I dressed the theme while not dressing it at all. Believe me, I was really making the effort to wear jeans, but I was just thinking about having to peel them off of me when I got home later that night, and I knew that leggings were the way to go. I was so so comfortable and extremely warm! These fleece lined leggings will have my heart forever, to be honest.

I wore my black turtleneck and black boots, and last but not least, my denim vest. I got this from dELiA*s a while back and I’m so disappointed that I haven’t worn it more, so shoutout to our social chairs for bringing it back from the dead!

As far as my hair and makeup went, I kept things fun and basic with a half-up-half-down look and some pretty neutral makeup. I wore one of my new favorite lipstick colors that I’ll be reviewing soon!

What’s your favorite mixer theme? Let me know in the comments (and I’ll tell Gamma’s social chair)!

Happy Hump Day! I hope so badly that you’re staying toasty in this arctic weather. I don’t know why I made the decision to move to a cold place instead of running away to Florida or California, but you know what they say, the grass is always greener. You guys are probably sick of hearing me complain about the weather by now.

One way I stay cozy in these sub-zero temperatures is by wearing this sweatshirt and never taking it off, ever. I got it for Christmas last year and I wear it literally all the time. I love it so much because it’s Halsey merch, but also because it’s so big and cozy, which keeps me nice and warm. I like to layer shirts underneath it too so I’m extra warm.

Another is by wearing my fuzzy leggings to death! I have a gazillion pairs because they’re seriously a ride or die item for me. They’re high-waisted too, which gives me another half layer on my torso. Every little barrier against the cold helps!

My Timbs are really great in the cold too since they have a ton of traction against the snow. They’re really weather-resistant, too. And they go with everything. Timberlands take up a chamber of my heart.

I style this sweatshirt and leggings in a lot of different ways, but this is definitely one of my favorites. My Kat Von D lipstick just looks awesome with this sweatshirt, so I love to wear them together a lot. What are some winter items you can’t live without? Let me know in the comments!

Hey babes! I still can’t believe that this is my last semester of school. It keeps hitting me at weird times, like at the end of my sorority’s Initiation, when I couldn’t say what I needed to because I was sobbing so hard. My sisters are absolute angels and gave me beautiful flowers and an amazing card, and I almost cried all my makeup off. I look so sad in all the pictures.

This is our Recruitment shirt from this past semester! Our theme was Gamma Brings You Home, which I loved because Gamma truly is my home. I wore this amazing shirt with my lighter leggings and white Converse to match the colors in my shirt. I also wore my gold heart-shaped glasses because I’m in love with my sorority.

Hey cutie patooties! It’s been a minute! I’ve been complaining a lot about how demanding my classes have been, but now that my last semester of New Member Education is over with (don’t let me think about it or I’ll cry again), I have more time to breathe, sleep, and blog! I’m so excited for all the fun things I have coming up for you all. Make sure you stay tuned so you don’t miss a beat!

As you all know, I love a good bodysuit. I wore my leotard with my lighter leggings for a trip to Target! This was back when I didn’t need a jacket. I miss the warmer weather already. Fall is my favorite season, but it got cold so quickly I feel like I got cheated! I wore this blue flannel that I very rarely wear. The color is so beautiful that the dark side of me gets intimidated. But I should definitely show it more love.

I wore my hair in a pony to get it the heck out of my face, and my classic black Converse. I also wore these really cool sunglasses from Spitfire! They’re edgy and different, which I’m always a fan of. I topped it all off with Royal Revolution, yet another superb scent from Fragrance Goddess Katy Perry.

Hey hey hey! I know I’ve only mentioned it about a thousand times, but can you believe it’s already Recruitment season?! I met some of the amazing girls that want to join my family last night and got so much more excited than I already was. I still can’t believe our idea three years ago turned into this :’)

This is our Recruitment shirt from Spring 2017! It’s my personal favorite of our Recruitment shirts. I love the unique cut that helps us ~stand out~. I wore this top with my bralette, and to be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever not worn my bralette with this top. I don’t know what else I’d wear. Maybe a gold bralette? I don’t really want one?

I wore my black shorts and black Converse (is black your favorite color or something?) and let my hair down for the day. I wore Katy Perry’s Killer Queen perfume that smells as beautiful as it looks, and my wood sunglasses that broke the other day and I am SO SAD let’s not talk about it.
