Recent Obsession: Gold Jewelry

Hello lovely readers!

I have had a recent obsession (and by recent I mean in the past couple months) with gold/bronze jewelry, so today I am showing you some of my favorite, most versatile pieces. Only about 6 months ago, anything gold I considered old fashioned and ugly, I basically only wore silver jewelry. Thankfully that has changed, I now consider it beautiful and it matches with so many things! I love wearing it, using it as accents for decorating, anything!

So these are 9 of my favorite, most used pieces, counting the earring set as just one piece.

photo 1 (41)

I bought this only about 2 weeks ago but I am IN LOVE. It is so simple that it goes with anything, adding just enough detail without stealing the show. I got this from Forever 21 for around $4, so it was a steal.

photo 3 (39)

This chunky necklace I found on Ebay back in March, and instantly bought it because I fell in love with it. For only $3, it is quite good quality and has never once broken nor had the gems come off, so I have been pleased with this necklace. I love wearing it with anything denim, whether it be a dress or just jeans or a denim shirt.

photo 4 (35)

I have gotten so many compliments on this necklace ever since I bought it from Claire’s in April, it was on their dollar rack and I knew I had to have it. Its a really versatile necklace and goes with so many things, and I love how the pieces are separated instead of being just stuck together.

photo 1 (42)

This is one of my very favorites, it’s a statement bracelet from the Katy Perry Prism collection at Claire’s. It’s very chunky which is something I love in jewelry, but it is still subtle. I bought this back in December which I think started my love for gold jewelry.

photo 2 (44)

As you can see, I have gotten most of my gold jewelry collection from Claire’s, this was also on the clearance rack, it’s really simple but still adds a touch of rebel to a more reserved outfit.

photo 3 (40)

I love these earrings because they shimmer so much in the sunshine and really catch eyes. Plus, who doesn’t love to wear dangly earrings?

photo 4 (36)

This was another eye-catching piece from the prism collection by Katy Perry, just a simple wrap-around ring with a couple gemstones in the triangles.

photo (14)

These earrings I got from Forever 21 has you can see by the label, and they might just be my best purchase from them yet. I haven’t had any problem with them falling out or moving around, which has happened a lot with earrings from other places, and I got 12 pairs for $6! I am in love with all of them, they add a great touch to any outfit 🙂

What is your favorite type of jewelry?

Fashion Inspiration-The 60’s

Good afternoon loves!

I love looking back on different eras for fashion inspiration, and in my opinion, the 60’s were quite the time for style. The flippy hair, short dresses, bold prints, bell bottoms, mismatched patterns, etc…

There were definitely two opposite sides to 60’s fashion. The early 60’s were more in favor of the 50’s, while the later 60’s was where the fun and funky came in.

While there is no way that I would dress identical to 60’s trends way back when, there are some great ideas and looksd that we can steal to add some spice to our everyday outfits.

The-beautiful-sense-of-1960s-fashion3

 

This photograph contains so much lightheartedness and fun, not to mention their totally boss sense of style. The hats are fabulous, not to mention the cuts of their dresses.

images (5)

Those sunglasses though. The 60’s were definitely the era for big and bold sunglasses, in plenty of different shapes.

id-cl-99-59

I’ve noticed a lot of vertical stripes going on, along with the other prints, and they really stand out. Striped always flatter a complexion, especially vertical, as they give the illusion of a long, thing figure.

espresso_news202_bm

 

60’s inspired runway fashions are shown here. I feel like Blumarine did a wonderful job bringing out the elements of the late 60’s here, with the short, color blocked dresses and matching boots, in a much less form fitting shape. I especially like the dress on the far right, it really does justice to the era with the crochet texture and eye catching solid color.

cute-60s-girls-fashion

Yellow seems to have been a really popular color in that decade, which I love, especially with it also being favored on and off runways this past spring.

6532241821_985f0eefbd_z

 

Houndstooth and the man’s high necked shirt. The lace up boots, the coat and shaggy bangs really screams “very late 60’s,”  possibly even early 70’s.

587bcc8c29b453ba196dc14c314fcc94

Another trend that I have noticed in almost all of these photos is the kitten heels. They are so dainty and sweet, and add a more reserved sense to the outfits.

For me, the two biggest style icons for the 60’s are, quite obviously, Audrey Hepburn, although the other one is actually a quite popular singer from today, as well as one of my personal favorites…Lana Del Rey. She takes elements from this era and transforms them to have a more modern tone, although her beautiful music and gorgeous outfits are still full of the 60’s vibe. (If you want to hear an example, my two personal favorites are Diet Mountain Dew and Young and Beautiful)

3LanaDelReyforHnMautumn2012collection

 

This dress is more form fitting then most in the 60’s, but the shoes and the hair add the touches necessary to complete the look 🙂

I love this look so much. The fur skirt is so funky, but the sophisticated jacket and peplum top tie it all together.

This look reminds me of something that a tennis player would wear. And those chairs. I want one.

I really love this outfit and feel like it is something that I would wear. Not to mention I have never seen a grown woman pull of pigtails so well. Gorgeous!

LanaObsession1

LanaObsession4

 

Both of these photos have such a whimsical yet mysterious feel to them. I love the backgrounds, they truly make me want to live in the 60’s! Her dresses are gorgeous, the soft pastels add such a relaxed feeling.

Lana Del Rey really is a 60’s fashion icon.

After studying all of these photographs, I have collected some clothing pieces that I feel reflect the vibes of the 60’s, while still having a modern feel to them.

OOTD-Conference Wear

Good morning!

This past weekend I went to a writers conference with my mom, my friend Beka, and her mom. Both of our moms are writers, and are part of a writing group, so once a year there is this big two day conference which me and Beka help with. It’s quite a lot of fun and we get to meet some famous authors, but the best part is decided what to wear. For day 2 I had Beka take some pictures of my outfit to show you all, hope you enjoy 🙂

Au Natural

Hello loves! Today I went out into the woods near my home to have a photoshoot and show off my new kimono. I decided to leave my hair natural, I didnt do a thing to it, which was hard because my hair is a curly mess unless I work with it a bit…so that was brave of me.

How has your weather been?

April Favorites

large_副本

Hey loves!

Anther month has gone by so quickly, I literally can’t believe it’s May already…I know, so cliche of me to say, but it’s really true!

So in honor of this month come and gone, here are my April favorites, things that I found myself using a lot or that I really liked for April.

photo (6)

1. F21 Floral Crew Socks-These added just the right amount of floral to my outfits this spring, I love how subtle they are but they won;t go unnoticed. You can buy them here: http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?br=F21&category=ACC&productid=2000136519

2. Maybelline Fit Me! Matte Poreless Foundation-I love the the texture of this foundation, it did a great job of covering red areas on my face, the only problem is that I accidentally grabbed the wrong color as I was in a hurry when buying it, so I’m hoping to get the same foundation again just this time in the right shade for my skin.

3. Tangerine Eos Lip Balm-The perfect flavor/scent for spring, plus my lips have been quite chapped lately and this took care of that!

4. Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Snow Me White-I got this polish at Target, it’s just a basic white and was only $3 but it did the job, and for being so cheap, the texture is really nice and smooth!

5. Daisy Gem Iphone Case-I ran into Claire’s the other day to see if I could find a new phone case as mine was literally falling apart (it was plastic) and this caught my eye, I don’t usually go for sparkles but I love the bump out texture of this phone case and of course the daisies are perfect for this time of year 😉

6. Tresemme Extra Control Mousse- I like to scrunch this in my hair after a shower because it gives my hair a lovely texture. Being naturally curly haired, I can have 10 different types of curls in my hair at once…frizzy, ringlets, beach waves, straight parts, etc..which makes for a crazy head of hair, but this gives it all the same type of curl which is a big relief.

7. H&M Simple Striped Long Sleeve Shirt-This is just your typical knit long sleeve, but I love the black stripes on it, this versatile top goes with so many things, and every girl should have at least one simple striped top in her wardrobe.

Style Inspiration: Coachella 2015-Best and Worst Looks

Hey lovelies!

Long time no post!

This past week flew by so quickly, and I realized that I only wrote one blog post! What a shame! 😦

So basically the biggest, most looked-forward to event of the Spring just happened..Coachella! For those of you who have no clue what that is, it’s basically the most popular music festival in the US taking place in~where else~California!

Get ready to see florals, fringe, and patterns galore with my favorite picks from Coachella 2015.

1429118716_beyonce-coachella-style-467

Let’s begin with Beyonce slaying it this Saint Laurent maxi dress, fringe vest, and black fedora.

coachella-streetstyle-04

This skirt looks like it was born and ready for twirling. Paired with heart sunglasses(because what would Coachella be without somebody sporting a pair or two of those)

coachella-streetstyle-06

A floppy hat, brown leather bag, and floaty dress make up this stylish ensemble, I love the addition of the denim she is holding, whether that be a jacket or shirt…who knows?

sev080114foryou035

Kimonos, kimonos, and more kimonos…I love the pairing of this tribal print, black shortie boots, and black fedora with the lacy top.

VivaLuxury-2

This style is more reserved which I appreciate because it’s easier on the eyes…but it still has the pop of color with the bag, and pop of funkiness with the off-the-shoulder-top.

b313a809affca73af234f1786da2d11d (1)

This outfit ranks #1 in my favorites, it’s simple yet eye catching and looks very comfortable to boot.

d48644c5a729240f9d3cb4657296d4a9

SO.MUCH.PATTERN. Love!

989fc01ac1881e94b21310cce2bd5646

This romper is so much fun! Her lipstick adds that pop of necessary color to go with the yellow and black too 🙂

l2vtgirk550f8f7d68a64676648441

This looks hard to walk in, but she rocks it! Extra points for having such flawless hair.

Now to move on to my least favorites:

5cec9da067abd211a3471b6812f32335

Jenners, sorry to break it to you, this isn’t a funeral….it looks like Kylie took some tips from St. Lucy with that headpiece!

Santalucia

Let’s take Saint Lucy and make her GOTH. That sounds like a GREAT outfit idea.

Sorry nope.

469296726_700x1050

Not to pick on the Jenners again, but Kendall’s denim shorts need to go.

mmrg9h

What even…Rihanna, please spare us.

rihanna-coachella-marques-almeida

Not to mention, did somebody take a bite out of her shoulder or something? And those boots. Gahh

Solange+Knowles+Celeb+Sightings+Coachella+RacVxmPv_qal

Whatever this is…

So what were your thoughts on Coachella this year? Which of these outfits were your favorites?

P.s. If I offended anybody by my opinion, I apologize deeply, but remember these were just my opinions, that shouldn’t affect anybody else’s..if you like any of that stuff that I was hating on, good for you, and wear it well 😉

Lilly Pulitzer Target Release-My Favorites

Hey beauties!

Target released their Lilly Pulitzer line yesterday and according to reports it was C-R-A-Z Y…including stores selling out within literally minutes of the release,  and even some ridiculous name calling and a fist fight or two over a dress…so before I go on, remember people, it’s only clothes. Don’t lose your dignity over them. 

To continue.

I definitely have some favorites, I’m hoping to go to Target tomorrow to see if I can find anything left over, but I don’t have my hopes up on actually finding anything that wasn’t already snatched up.

Without further ado, my favorites out of the collection.

Clothes: 

lilly

I can see wearing this springy romper to so many places, whether it be the beach, a shopping trip, or just a walk in the park.

16934516

This kimono cover up is so pretty, I love the fringe on the sleeves.

16694243

I have a love for pom pom shorts, especially this summery blue pair! The gold drawstring detail adds a touch of sophistication, too.

16925605

Accessories:

16934628

I absolutely adore the gold toe on these! So adorable!

16934599

Pineapples!!!! I’m loving how this line is combining the fun floral prints and the gold details. It goes together so well.

16710719

This bracelet has such a fun, funky design!

16740464

Home:

16719101

16719099

These plates are screaming “EAT OFF OF ME!”

16700513

Yes I know this is a juicer, but I would end up using it for little earrings and things…

16700547

16721829

More pompoms!!

Beauty:

16848882

This would be so fun to carry cosmetics in for traveling or even just a sleepover!

17064254    17064242

I might be picking these up tomorrow if they are there…so sweet, and only $5 for a pack!

So those are my favorites out of the limited edition Lilly+Target collection, do you have any favorites? Have you seen it in stores or bought anything!

My Favorite Spring Trends for 2015

Spring is here, and I’m so happy! Bright colors, time to get out summer clothes, and warm weather starting to peak through.

Not only this, but the summer trends for 2015 are amazing this year. I put together some outfits using my favorites on Polyvore, which include pops of bright color, grid print, blazers, graphic tees, and below-the-knee skirts.

l (4)

This ensemble includes the typical black tank with a phrase on it, pops of refreshing mint in the bag and the necklace, and some contrast with the leopard print shoes.

l (2)

Different shades of Nude are also in this season, I have seen them popping up everywhere, and I paired the blazer, shoes, and watch(of a more pinkish hue) with a black tulle skirt, graphic tee, funky jewelry, and a cute clutch. Plus the cat eye sunglasses add just the right touch of vintage.

l (3)

I love the two bursts of neon green in this otherwise blank outfit. I think that the blazer and black bag add sophistication, and the phonecase, in case you can’t tell what it says, has the words “I just want to drink coffee, create stuff, and sleep.”

l (1)

Yellow and blue together also very on-trend this season, so I combined that with a fashionable pair of pointed toe pumps, a grid-print skirt, and a black short sleeve tee.

l (5)

 

Gingham, which is another statement this spring, is incorporated with another pop of bright color, and a pair of nude heels and bag. Overalls are another “in” item.

Here are some looks from straight off the runway, I also like the white-on-white and black-and-white look. It’s simple but can be amped up to create something more bold.

Hope you enjoyed this post and got some inspiration for your spring wardrobe!

Style Hunt: Bella Thorne

Hey lovely readers!

So I don’t know about you, but when I’m at a loss for outfit ideas, one of my favorite things to do is look to celebrities for inspiration. Those include Taylor Swift, Demi Lovoto, Lucy Hale, Chloe Moretz, Zendaya, and Bella Thorne. They all have such an amazing sense of style!
