The Shirt Dress

So, it’s that time of year where you don’t know what to wear. It’s cold – it’s hot, one minute it’s sunny, and the next it’s raining. With the inevitability of Winter approaching, it’s time to enjoy Autumn. I recently purchased this shirt dress from MissGuided and it’s absolutely perfect for Fall. When it’s warm, I can wear it as a cute little dress with some sandals or boots. When it gets a bit colder, I can put it together with some jeans/leggings, and a cool jacket. The best thing about a shirt dress is that it’s so versatile. Here are two different ways to style a shirt dress:

This is classic and simple. It’s appropriate for a wedding or just for going about your day!

When I put it with jeans, I tucked in one side to make it more dynamic. I love these cutout boots I got from DailyLook, I basically live in them.

A shirt dress is a staple piece in a wardrobe, and inexpensive! You can get basic or patterned and they still go with everything.

Hope you enjoyed!

Lush Collection

Hi everyone! I posted a new video on my channel, and I’m super happy with this one because I feel like I’m finally getting comfortable in front of a camera, and comfortable with sharing my interests. This new video is about my Lush Collection so check it out right here!

 

I also wanted to talk about something that is really cool.

If you didn’t know, Lush is a cosmetic company. They have everything from beauty products (like hair henna and lip tints) to bath products (everything smells SO GOOD). I love Lush because their products are mostly all natural, and they use different techniques to help the environment. I love this because I have sensitive skin and using all natural products helps my breakouts a lot.

My favorite part about Lush is that they fight against animal testing. I love animals and I love that by purchasing Lush products I can contribute to a great cause. Discovery Channel’s Shark Week partnered with Lush Cosmetics to bring shark slaughtering to attention. It caught my attention right away, and I signed the petition to help.

Here is the info to sign the petition and go #FinFree!

In Training

Trainers, sneakers, tennis shoes, what ever you call them – they are making an entrance into the fashion world. This trend of wearing athletic footwear with non-athletic clothing is so much fun because it creates an effortless vibe to any outfit. If you’re wearing a dress but don’t want to seem too dressy, you can throw on a pair of stylish sneakers and you will look chic. (And be comfortable)

The best part about this trend is that there are so many different colors and patterns with this type of shoe! A bold shoe doesn’t just have to be a heel. Everyone can pull off this look, and it can travel through seasons.

 

This is a perfect example (with bloggers) of wearing bright tennis shoes with fashionable outfits. It is also easy to see that it can work with any kind of style.

This is exactly why I love this trend. She is wearing a tutu and trainers and looks amazing! I love that this style is not following typical fashion ‘rules’ and it totally works.

My personal favorite way to wear this look is with these floral Adidas. Adidas and the Farm Company teamed up to create these amazing, girly, summer styled floral originals, and I absolutely adore these.

 

Do you like wearing sneakers with fashion?

Summer Nails 2014

Hello!

So, let’s jump right in. I love nail polish. I had a whole phase in middle school where I painted my nails a different color every day… I was obsessed. I still love looking at the new popular nail colors every season, and I have made a video about my favorite colors for this summer!

I hope you guys like my YouTube channel!

All the nail polishes I used are listed in the video, but I wanted to share a few of my favorite sets here.

 

This blue color makes me so happy. The gold accents on the rings along with the neon colors make it perfect for summer. It’s electric and fun, which is what summer is all about, right?

The red – orange color is nice for summer because it’s not as harsh as a true red. My bracelet is from Colombia and I absolutely adore it. These colors combined make me want to dance!

This yellow neon color didn’t quite come out how bright it actually is, but it’s pretty neon! It took me forever to find a neon green/yellow color, and I still want to get a better quality one… I am all about this color though. The lightning bolt ring makes it double electric. I love it!

 

Hope you enjoyed! Check out my video for all the brands! What are your favorite nail colors for summer?

A New Beginning…

Wow, I haven’t been on my blog in a long time. I don’t exactly know why I abandoned it… Maybe I got busy, perhaps I just lost interest. I feel like I’ve grown up a lot since I stopped writing on here, and my interests have especially changed. Instead of picking up where I left off, recapping my year, and having the same content, I am going to switch it up. I have started a YouTube channel all about fashion, life, and other fun things! My blog is going to have a lot to do with my channel now, so please go ahead and check it out- and subscribe!

Met Gala 2013

The Met Gala was a few days ago, and I’m so excited to post about it. Lately I haven’t been excited about any red carpets. The Oscars weren’t even good! People have not been dressing their best and I have been so disappointed and just bored with everyone’s outfits. The Met Gala let all the people I love redeem themselves and they did! I was so happy as I scrolled through these amazing outfits. I think this is the best my favorite celebrities and style icons have looked in a long time. Here are my favorites!

Anne Hathaway actually looked great. (I usually don’t like her outfits) But she looks so cool and edgy in Valentino.

I am absolutely in love with Nicole Richie in this look by Topshop. She looks so fantastic. My favorite.

I usually don’t care about Taylor Swift on the red carpet, but she looked so good! In J. Mendel

Who was your favorite? I think they really took the opening of Punk: Chaos to Couture and put it into their fashion. I love that style, so this was the best red carpet I’ve seen in a while.
