Mix It Up

I know that the majority of my last posts have been more about self motivation rather then actual styling tips and such. Still getting a feel for what you guys are liking me writing about so let me know what you prefer! Today we are back on the styling train with this shoot that I did with a friend of mine and photo genius Dillon! For those of you who have followed me for anytime now know that I love to push the boundaries when it comes to style. I love unique pieces and wearing things in a way that most would not think of. So today, we are taking this gorgeous, blush, beaded dress and grunge-ing it up, a whole lot. A vintage Aerosmith tee, black corduroy moto jacket, and my worn-to-hell-and-back Jeffreys.…

I’ll Be Your Daydream


There are certain things that I have been realizing this past week as a start up my last first day of school… ever. As college is all too quickly coming to an end, I am realizing that for the first time in my life I have no clue what the next step will be. You grow up knowing that after middle school you go to high school. After high school you go to college. But after college you kinda realize, oh shit, what the hell is the next step? It is frightening but so exciting all at the same time. I have come truly understand that it is okay to be a little bit selfish at this time in my life. To really sit down and daydream about where I want my life to…

Show A Little Uh Uh

Processed with VSCOcam with c6 preset

  If you even remotely know me or have been following my blog for any time now you would know that I am not afraid of showing a little skin. I am well aware that I have a booty, thick thighs,  a tummy and I don't think I have been a size 2 since 7th grade BUT I can honestly say that I love my body. There is absolutely nothing wrong with showing a little skin no matter what size you are because the confidence that it will bring you is something that is going to shine no matter what. You are worth more then your waistline. When I think of something that is powerfully sexy I think of someone who is comfortable in their skin. Someone who has a sense of humor, a…

Ay Bay Bay (area)


This trip to the Bay Area was more then just a family vacation, it was a chance for my whole family to come together to make in impact in others lives. My dad was the Executive Sponsor for First Harvest Food Bank in which his company raised enough money to feed 1.5 million hungry people in the U.S. Our family went down to show our support and got to partake in packing up those 1.5 million meals. The CEO of the food bank gave us a tour and we got the opportunity to hear some really amazing stories about how they are helping people nation wide. While the holiday season for most of us is something to celebrate, families are struggling to provide a simple healthy meal for their loved ones. So this year,…

Blog Birthday!

T Kerley 3

I do my best to keep my blog and social media as personal as I can, I want it to be a place that people can relate to. I ran into a girl who has been a long time follower of mine at the mall the other day, the sweetest soul ever! She told me that it was so crazy meet someone you already know so much about. And I thought what a perfect birthday blog post! So thanks to Veronica, I have complied some of my favorite photos growing up (skipping as much of the awkward middle school stage that I could). Here is a little peak into my life growing up and a long list of things that I think defines me as a person… Enjoy! DESERT DWELLING + BOUTIQUE OWER +…

Have Passion


This past weekend I was asked to be the guest speaker at a National Charity League Tea. Speaking to over 200 girls between the ages of 11 and 23 and their mommas. I spoke about what it means to be a leader in your community and being a #girlboss. Encouraging girls to start driving their passions young.  I can tell you that there is nothing more powerful then a women who is passionate about taking the lead in a team. You have to stay creative and celebrate your individuality. You are a trailblazer and have to have the desire to advance your community and even the world. You have to stay innovative, think of new ways to create and connect to push our society forward. You have to stay confident. Know who you are and…

There is really nothing more that I love then having creative friends. Being in a creative field myself, having that community is something I credit a lot of my work to. As a creative, it is hard and nearly impossible to thrive on your own, you rely heavily on others talents, just as others rely on yours. So, anytime that I get the chance to help another creative I will use every outlet that I can. As for this post we are going to be talking about Jonathan Galan. The only person you will ever meet who can eat everything off of the McDonalds menu and drink a two-liter bottle of Coke before noon and still have a 6-pack. An amazing friend of mine who I have worked on many projects with before. He…

His Opal

hisopal (1 of 4)

<br/. In todays post I have teamed up with an amazing swimwear line called His Opal. They are believers, just as I am, that every body is beautiful and promote swimwear for women of all shapes and sizes. I made the decision to team up with them after the overwhelming feedback I received from my last swim post. For any women out there struggling with body image, remember this. To be beautiful is to be yourself. You do not need to find acceptation in others, you need to accept yourself and with that will come love. And for those of you who have found that acceptance for yourself, I encourage you to lift others up that are around you. Encourage them, love them and inspire them. All swimwear can be found HERE   Stay…
