Blazers

Blazers have always been a classic. Every person should own this piece of clothing. They are perfect for any age group. What I love about blazers is that you can wear it so many different ways. You could wear it to work during the day, like if you’re a teacher or work in the professional field, and you can wear it at night if you are going out and want to stay comfy. Blazers are becoming very popular so there are a lot of different styles, colors, and even textures. Here are some of my personal favorite blazers.

Ruched Sleeve Knit Blazer

Cream 3/4 Sleeve Blazer

Longline Lace Blazer

Frenchi Railroad Stripe Crop Blazer

 

Black, Gray and Blue

Have you ever worn black, gray or blue together? I have for sure. But all my friends always say, ‘ Those brown boots don’t match with your blue jeans’ or ‘That blue skirt doesn’t match with those gray leggings.’ In my opinion, I think these colors look perfectly fine together. I think you just have to wear the right shades of these colors together. Here are some pictures of clothing that I would definitely wear together.

Jane By Design

I absolutely love this show! I love Jane and all her clothing and how she gets to work at a fashion company. I would love to have that job, even at my young age. If you have never watched this show before you definitely should. It’s about a girl who lives two lives. During the day she is a normal high school student while at night she works for a fashion company called Donovan Decker. Her best guy friend is always helping her keeping it a secret from her brother. It’s a really great show if you’re interested in fashion, humor and romance. The season 2 premiere was yesterday, June 5th, 2012, but you can catch weekly episodes every Tuesday at 9/8c on the ABC Family channel. Enjoy!

Neons!

Neon clothing, or as I like to call it, highlighter color clothing, is super fun! I love neon colors because it’s so bright and everyone will notice you. Plus, it is the perfect thing to wear during the summer. There are also a lot of different styles you can wear from shirts to shorts to dresses and accessories. What’s really perfect is to wear one neon color with another. My personal opinion is that if you wear, let’s say, a neon yellow shirt with yellow pants, I think it is a little overpowering or tacky. But it would be cute if you wore a neon pink shirt with neon green shorts and a neon pink thin belt.
Here are some of my personal favorite neon clothing:

 

Mossimo Supply Co. Juniors Denim Short

Neon Animal Bodycon Dress

Black Light Optional Neon Yellow Fuchsia Dress

Dolce T-Strap Sandal

Printed Crochet Fringe 2fer Top

Plaid and Stripes; Is This a Crime?

I have always heard that plaid and stripes don’t go together. Is it a bad thing? No, of course it isn’t, but I wouldn’t say it’s the best thing to wear. I once wore stripes and plaid without even noticing. I just thought it looked good together. But now when I tried on that exact outfit a year later, I thought it didn’t look so bad. I think the thing for mastering plaids and stripes is matching colors pretty well. For example, wearing a light blue and peach plaid shirt with a white and peach striped cardigan doesn’t look that bad. What would you do? Would you wear stripes and plaid?

Here are some cute styles of plaid and stripes:

Summer Maxis and Rompers

The best thing for me to wear in the summer is something that is comfortable and keeps me cool. I think Maxis and Rompers are the perfect thing to wear this summer. I love maxis because they can be beautiful, long, printed dresses that are very flowing so it’s very easy to move around. These kinds of dresses are perfect with a pair of shades and thong sandals.

Rompers are perfect to wear anywhere. There are also many different styles. They range from just one color to different prints. If I were to wear a romper I would either wear it with a pair of Vans or sandals, sunglasses (of course!!), and a medium sized belt to help distinguish the romper.

Shopping 5/19/2012


Yesterday I went to the mall and I stopped by Nordstrom, planning to buy some new shoes. I couldn’t decide between a pair of these beautiful Purple Pelmetto Women’s Classics Toms and a pair of these Vans Authentic Glitter Dots. I decided to get the Vans because they would be a little bit more durable than the Toms.
After that, I went to Forever 21 and I got a super cute lace top. I don’t exactly know what the top is called, sorry!
If you were to buy the Toms or Vans, you can wear them with a pair of yoga pants and a cute shirt…like the one I just bought yesterday.

Polka Dots

I think polka dots are so cute and very old-fashioned. Polka dots are also very girly and chic. Whenever I see polka dots, I always think of Rachel from the television show, Glee. My favorite way to wear polka dots is a mint colored polka dot blouse with a pair of khakis. Wearing a bright colored lipstick really looks good with polka dots. Also, I love polka dot shirts or dresses that have a tailored collar.
Here are some examples:

Color Blocking

The easiest way to color block with clothing is to take really bright colors and put them together. For instance, try wearing a dark blouse with a bright colored skirt. Another alternative is to wear a very simple outfit but with a pair of shoes that are multi-colored. Even adding really big and bright accessories will help but make sure not to go overboard.
Here’s some color blocking ideas:

2.Alexander Wang Silk Combo Color Dress

3.Mint Twist Neck Color Block Dress

4.Velvet Torch Color Block Maxi Dress
