Last weekend I took a trip to the Glendale Galleria and there was this amazing sale at bcbgeneration, so I took advantage of it. I bought two things, but I have gotten plenty of use out of them already. Thing one!

A leather bracelet that says “Fierce”. It was 18 dollars, so I had to get it. PLUS its rose gold, which I love, so it gave me another reason to buy it.

Thing two!

A red tee that says, in very small writing, “Bruised, Not Broken” .  This was 25 dollars. I am going to wear it with leggings and a black studded motorcycle jacket, and flats.

So there. Not really a fashion haul, but I like them. I think they’re super cute.

Do you take advantage of sales?

Right now, I am obsessing over studded shorts. Seeing them all over instagram makes the obsession even worse. Aren’t they just SO cute? I know that most of them were handmade, and I know you can buy them on etsy. I just thought I would share a load of cute pictures for others to drool over. 

I think the first pair below is entirely too short but still cute.

okay, so there. I plan on making a pair because I love them too much not to.

By the way, how have you guys been? I haven’t posted in months, school was hectic and summer has been very busy.

Do you like studded shorts? :)

Leopard print: my new obsession. When I see leopard print, I envision a white blouse, red lipstick, winged liner, and a curly updo. This print is so classic, and when used properly, it can make a simple outfit absolutely glam.

I like that this scarf is really bulky, and the fact that her hair is up makes it perfect.

YSL scarf. Swoon.

I love these flats. The red accent is such a great idea! I would shrink the bow-ish-thing  down a couple sizes, but I love the concept.

There are so many gorgeous leopard print clutches an purses out there, but I decided to choose this Zara clutch. I really  like the proportions. (The placement of the flap, the button, etc.)

Is it totally lame that I put an umbrella on here? No. No it isn’t. I think that this would look really fab with a red trench and black jeans. Yeah.

What do you envision when you see leopard print?

Meow.

      Not only is Lauren Conrad a great actress and author, she has incredible style. Whatever she wears, she makes it look so effortless and yet she looks so gorgeous. Whether the outfit is an pair of flats, jeans, and a white tee or a beautiful floral skirt, she looks classy and put together.

Image

I love that blue dress.

Image

That Chanel purse is gorgeous, and I love the gray oxford in the first outfit.

Image

This is so effortlessly cool! The jeans are so dark and the white tee is so crisp. I love how she matched the brown belt and her bag just perfectly, and kept the shoes neutral.

The skirt is (properly) the focal point of this look. Everything is perfect. And I think we all know that her legs are fabulous.

Whatever she is wearing, she looks amazing. I have a feeling she really likes blue and black together, and they look great on her.

So, there you go. I would wear everything that Lauren Conrad wears, and for the most part, I feel as if we have the same style. But I envy her wardrobe.

Happy Saturday!

     When we were in elementary school, St. Patrick’s Day was reserved for pinching. I’m not quite sure why we did this, but I think it was for the sheer joy of pinching someone. For me, St. Patrick’s day is now for making a cute fashion statement without looking like a leprechaun. Since green is a really strong color, keep in mind that you want to use it in moderation. For instance, you could go with a cute pair of green flats and an amazing green clutch, or wear a fabulous green skirt with muted accents. Here are some of my ideas.

Image

 This shade of green is absolutely gorgeous. I would wear this with brown corduroy pants and a pretty cream blouse. Image

Look at this clutch! It has the perfect amount gold, and the shade is really pretty. I see this with a gold-ish blouse, a knee-length black pencil skirt, and pretty black pumps. Image

I am drooling over these flats. I am a avid flat-wearer, and I would spend a lot of money for these shoes. How do I see these being worn? Dark-washed cropped jeans, a coral blouse, and silver jewelry. 

Image

After typing “green skirt” in the search engine, I was doubtful that I would find a perfect green skirt. I found one. This outfit is completely darling, and I intend on finding something similar to this very soon.

Image

If you want to make major impact without using much effort, wear a pair of emerald studs. Put your hair up into a messy-bun, wing your liner, wear pink lip gloss, and stick these in your lobes. Voila! 

Image

If you plan on painting your nails, do them a dark emerald. It is rich in color and looks really pretty when you stare at your thumbs while texting. 

I hope that everyone has a fabulous St. Patricks’s day, and don’t forget that you can look super cute without looking like you tried too hard to be festive.

For the last four years, I have been faithfully purchasing Seventeen Magazine every month and reading each issue over and over until they were memorized. Each time I looked at the fashion section, I thought, “When am I ever going to wear that?!”, but still thinking that since it was Seventeen, so of course it HAD to be amazing.  Taking a closer look at every issue, they LOVE to mix different things. For example, they really press mixing prints. Which is totally fine! I love mixing prints. But they take it to a new extreme. To be honest, I have never worn anything relatively close to any of their outfits, as most of them are sort of outrageous.

Don’t get me wrong, I love when they talk DIY and have new hairstyles and new ways to wear your clothes. But something about it, I’m not sure. I think I’m moving on to “older” magazines. Hello, Lucky, Marie Claire and In Style! I feel these help me more with my fashion, as I like more timeless pieces rather than the latest, of-the-moment style tips that Seventeen provides.

Thank you, Seventeen. You got me started on my fashion obsession, and I will always love you for that. Sadly, I think I’m growing up, therefore I am moving on.

I think I might have made that more emotional than I needed to. But you guys catch my drift.

Happy Monday! [Not.]

You can still wear your cute summer dresses into the fall and winter, just as long as you layer and accessorize properly! If you aren’t quite ready to put them away, here are some tips for you.

 

 

 

1. I feel that you should not bare your whole leg during these seasons, even if it is warm. To me, it  just looks silly. [Unless, you know, they’re really cute plaid shorts with a cute blazer and a scarf and oxfords, but no dresses.] There are two ways to cover up your legs in this situation. Way A. would be to wear cute, colorful tights [I favor mustard yellow, brick red, and plum colored-tights.] and a pair of flats. In the tights department, you should pay attention to the denier. The higher the denier of the tights, the warmer they will be. Way B. would be to wear tall riding boots and leg warmers. Either way, you are covered up and still get to wear those cute dresses.

2. Now that we have your legs covered, lets go for the arms. Over a cute sundress, you should wear a structured blazer or a cute leather jacket. I would wear a leather one if the dress is floral, and a blazer if the dress is striped or polka-dot.

 

 

 

 

 

3. Scarves, scarves, scarves!!! You should invest in some cute fall scarves in deep colors to balance the summer dresses out.

 

 

 

 

4. Last, but not least, you should always accessorize properly for fall. Knit hats, cocktail rings, headbands, and statement necklaces can do the trick. Taylor Swift rocks the knit hat all the time, and so can you.
