Over-all of it

blog3

I think I have always been afraid of wearing overalls. They either looked too country, too 90’s, (the bad side of the 90’s) or just not my style. I never thought I could pull them off! BUT things have changed. I was looking online, and all of a sudden I saw overalls in a new light. I don’t know what changed, but now I’m all, I could wear them with the right styling! They can fit into my wardrobe! Luckily, my sister found these for me and now I’m in love. I think my message as a blogger is that anyone can wear what they want as long as they wear it with confidence. And I definitely need confidence to pull off wearing overalls!

These are Mossimo, so they were pretty inexpensive! I paired them with a Forever 21 t-shirt and shoes. I love the detail of the collar and sleeves because it makes it not just a basic tee.

Denim on Denim

Happy Spring! I’m excited about the new trends coming up this season, and I have been working hard on my Youtube videos, so I hope you have been watching! A trend I love this season is wearing denim on denim. The spring is the most appropriate time to wear denim on denim because it looks the best! No more boots, and no more bulky coats and scarves! (If you even had a winter where you live.)

Anyway here are some of my favorite looks, these people have done denim right!

Thrift Shopping

I haven’t actually blogged in forever. I know, it’s horrible – but I’ve been doing a lot of other good, productive things. Mostly I’m working on YouTube, and I’m loving it. I want to use this as my outlet for writing about fashion, and mentioning topics that are on my channel.

So this week I went thrift shopping. It was sort of a challenge for myself, I wanted to see if I could create cute outfits based off of thrifted pieces. I would consider it a success! The Goodwill I went to is amazing. It had so much stuff!

So here is what I ended up buying:

This blazer is a few sizes too big, and it had ridiculous shoulder pads, but I cut those out and am wearing it as an oversized, slouchy look with a romper.

The jumpsuit was thrifted, and I put it together with some clothes I already had to create a night out look. I felt very Miami.

This sweater is so comfortable! I threw it on with some skinny jeans and it looks way more expensive than the actual price.

This dress was only about $3, and it fits perfectly! I paired it with a shirt for a more grunge effect. I can’t wait to wear it in the summer too.

Hopefully this will inspire you to check out more thrift stores! Sometimes the best pieces are found there.

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!

Borrowed From The Boys

THIS IS A GUEST POST

By: Robin

She is a fellow September birthday. (Sept. 19th) Happy Birthday Robin! And thanks for posting!

 

Menswear for women has been a rising trend over the last few years and shows no signs of going away. I love that adding a little menswear to my style gives a great balance to any of my outfits. Today, I’m highlighting several different pieces of menswear in one outfit to give you ideas on how to incorporate them into your daily wardrobe. I choose menswear inspired clothing rather than wearing actual men’s clothes – you still get the style without sacrificing the fit.

A newsboy cap is a fun way to make things more interesting by bringing a vintage vibe to your outfit. I don’t know why more girls don’t wear hats, they are one of my favorite accessories. This newsboy cap will make you stand out from the standard fedora.

The navy blazer is a staple that you only need to invest in (a good one) once because they are classy and have never gone out of style. It’s a versatile piece that you can dress up and dress down. A sign of a well made blazer is the weight of the buttons – I love the gold tone ones on mine!

Large watches are not just for your grandpa. The right watch will add a great look to your outfit while being very functional. Whenever I wear mine I’m reminded at how much easier it is to check my wrist for the time than to dig out my phone. I love using tortoise shell as a neutral, so this goes with all my fall outfits.

My favorite piece – the rugby shirt. Very underrated, and if you haven’t tried one on you’re missing out on arguably the most comfortable shirt you’ll ever wear. This one is from Ralph Lauren’s Rugby line and has this great detail under the back collar.

Loafers are another classic that you’ll want to go to time and time again. Sperry gave me this pair and they are my most comfortable pair of shoes. I love loafers with fringe, tassels, or a buckle that provides an old school flair.

While you don’t need to incorporate all of these at the same time, it’s fun to take one or two pieces to wear into the upcoming fall season.
