Trend Report Tuesday- Denim Skirts

I remember when I was in 3rd grade, mini denim skirts were so popular for girls. Now the trend is back but re-amped. I’m really love in this trend because for me, it gives off this boho/western vibe. I’ve seen some people at Coachella and other music festivals wear this look with a big studded belt and crop top. You can also make it a edgier look by adding a blazer and a pair of stilettos. I think a denim skirt is a perfect staple to have in your wardrobe for the late summer/early fall season. Here are a few of my favorite denim skirts:

Trend Report Tuesday- Baseball Caps

I’m finally glad that baseball caps are in style now because I’ve been wearing them for a long while whenever I was a having a bad hair day or if I hadn’t washed my hair that day. Baseball caps are so fun and versatile to wear, they spice up any old casual outfit. You can wear a vintage cap with a pair of ripped jeans and a t-shirt or a pink cap with a casual t-shirt dress and some vans sneakers. Here are some of my personal favorite baseball caps:

Summer Fashion Essentials ☼

Summer is finally here! Here are some fashion pieces that I think are essential for this summer.

Pins and Needles Lace Halter Bra- Urban Outfitters

pins and needles halter bra

I’m obsessed with bralettes and halter bras. They are much comfier than a normal bra and are cuter than a normal t-shirt bra. These kind of bras can be worn with anything, but I personally like to wear them with strappy shirts and dresses so the bra is more visible. This bralette from UO is personally one of my favorites and come in a bunch of colors.

Urban Renewal Recycled High/Low Denim Short- Urban Outfitters

UO levis short

I finally found the classic high-waisted Levi shorts! I’m so in love with vintage looking clothing and Urban Renewal is the perfect place to find renewed vintage clothing. These shorts are perfect for a music festival this summer or a day trip to the beach.

Jada Dress- Brandy Melville

I think this little dress is a must have for this summer. You could totally dress it up or down for any occasion. Wear it going anywhere and when you get chilly at night, throw a jean jacket on top or a thin cardigan.

Vans ‘Classic’ Sneaker- Nordstrom

vans slip ons

These are my go-to shoes. I used to wear my white converse like all the time, but now I wear these. They’re super easy to put on and match with practically any outfit. Wear them if you’re just making a quick run to the store or walking around the city.

a.n.a Valerie Strappy Lace-Up Sandals- JCPenny

I’ve been trying to find a pair of shoes exactly like this but I could never find an affordable pair. The strapping of this shoe is perfect for a date night. They look good with either a dress or jeans.

Cat Eye Sunglasses- Forever21

I don’t have this exact pair, but I have something similar that I bought at Kohl’s, but the shape of the glasses is my absolute favorite. Different styles of sunglasses look better on certain people, so you just have to find the perfect pair. The cat eye glasses seem to be a trendy style so that’s why I chose these ones. Keep them in your purse or car so that you always have them and ready for use.

 

 

 

My Essentials For Fall ♡

It’s finally fall! This is my second favorite season (summer’s my first). I love how the leaves change color, and everything pumpkin comes to the stores, and this may sound weird, but fall has this special, fresh smell that I absolutely adore. But as fall comes, so does colder weather. These are some of my essentials that help me through the autumn season and the cold weather.

 

FLANNELS

It isn’t fall without flannels. They just give of that vibe of comfort and coziness. Flannels are so causal and can help enhance a basic outfit. White t-shirt, jeans, flannels and some booties and you’re set to go. Here are some of the places I like to go to buy my flannels at:

Forever21

Costco

Urban Outfitters

 

DARK WASH JEANS

Something about dark wash jeans just gives of the fall vibe. They look super sophisticated and make your outfit look nice and laid back. I also really like ripped jeans in the fall. It gives it a more edgy look and fall feel to the outfit. Here are some places I go to buy my jeans:

American Eagle

TJ Maxx

Forever21

 

SWEATERS

I honestly don’t own very many sweaters because I’m actually very picky when it comes to sweaters. It’s very hard to find the perfect fall sweater. I think sweaters are nice to layer over a white dress shirt and some jeans with a pair of booties and a bold necklace to kind of bring a little pop to the outfit. It’s a very sophisticated outfit for a fall day in the city. Here are some stores I would buy sweaters at:

Forever 21

Urban Outfitters

H&M

 

BOOTIES

Boots are my favorite type of shoe to wear in the fall and winter time. Half of the shoes I own are boots. Boots just give off that warm and cozy fall vibe. They can make an outfit casual by wearing some tall brown riding boots or some short black buckle boots to spice up an outfit for night time. There are so many different styles and colors of boots. There is a perfect boot for everyone. Here are some of my favorite stores to buy boots from:

Nordstrom

Steve Madden

Forever 21

 

MAKEUP

I don’t have any specific products I use for fall but my favorite things to use are dark lip colors. I think plum and dark rose colors are perfect in autumn. They helps brighten up a neutral toned outfit. Another thing I like to do for my makeup in the fall is winged eyeliner. I think the wing gives you a little edge to your face. Big wing or small wing, it’s definitely a bold change in your look.

 

I hope I have inspired you for fall!♡

Trend Report Tuesday: Kimonos

When I first heard about this trend, I didn’t exactly like it. I thought that kimonos were very unflattering and didn’t fit into my style, but they eventually grew on me. What I love about them is that they are very versatile and is a perfect “sweater” to wear in the summer. It’s very light and flowy and kind of makes you look like a hipster which is always a plus. Kimonos come in all styles and lengths to match your own personal style.

I currently have 2 kimonos that I purchased from TJ Maxx. They are currently my favorite styles. The black one is all lace in the back and has some fringe on the bottom which gives so flare to the outfit. I love to wear it on top of a crop top and high waisted shorts because its nice and long to cover up your back. It’s also very bohemian looking which is a perfect addition to my style.

BLACK KIMONO

 

My other kimono is a rich cream color with some lace trimming. I like to wear this one on fancier occasions since it’s a little bit more elegant looking, in my opinion. I usually wear this with a nice top and jeans or a on top of a basic romper.

PINK KIMONO

Here are a few kimonos that I really like:

trac cream lace kimono

Nordstrom has some good quality kimonos for a little bit pricier than what I would pay for, but I love this lace one because it’s perfect for dressing up an outfit.

la hearts floral kimono

PacSun is a great place to buy bohemian clothing. I’m really into the longer kimonos because they give off a better vibe, if that makes any sense.I like the dark floral and the fringe at the bottom.

black lace kimono

 

Forever21 has a great variety of clothing for any fashion style. I like the lace detailing and I also love the affordable price of this kimono. Another place to get some deals for kimonos is TJ Maxx. They aren’t guaranteed to have any, but you’d be surprise at what clothing items you can find there.

band of gypsies kimonoUrban Outfitters has very beautiful printed kimonos. This happens to be my favorite print from that store because I like the earth tones in it. If you’re willing to pay a little more to get a fancier kimono, I would definitely get one from here.

After that I went to PacSun and got this Kirra All Over Solid Lace tank which is really pretty. I actually wore my hat with my tank. It looks super cool! I wore it with my beanie, my new lace tank, dark wash jean jacket, black leggings and brown leather boots. I hope you guys like these items.
