Style Stalking: The Olsen Twins

Hi guys! I don’t know what happened, but I saw this photo of one of the Olsen twins on Tumblr.. and it just triggered this huge obsession. I have always thought the Olsen twins were fashion icons, but this photo (it wasn’t even THAT great of an outfit) just inspired me. I can’t explain it. I was just really digging the look, so then I googled and looked at more Olsen looks. I think I spent a good hour just stalking their style and trying to find an affordable croc textured tote bag lol. I can’t believe I never gave them more of my attention. I can’t believe I forgot about them!! I love their style. I love how sophisticated their looks are. They’re SO CHIC. Mary-Kate and Ashley are two very classy ladies, and I adore them. Their outfits look so effortless. I also can’t believe how easy their looks are to recreate. A few key things when it comes to the Olsen twins’ style: black, croc textured bags, loafers, anything oversized, and more black. They like scarves and clothing pieces that drape/have no shape. I know I said that I was trying to steer away from black, but they’ve really sold me on simple black pieces (like skinny jeans, cigarette trousers, long overcoats, and sweaters). They have the best monochromatic/neutral/tonal looks. I think most of their wardrobe is either white, black, or grey. These twins also know how to play with texture – they’re fashion pros! While stalking, I also browsed their website “Elizabeth and James”, and I would kill to have a piece of their collection. Preferably one of their croc leather bags because they certainly have a strong purse/bag game – and this is coming from the ultimate bag lady herself. Below are photos that I saved while I went crazy googling the Olsen twins.

Do you get what I’m saying about the croc leather bags?!! I hope I don’t sound like a lunatic while I rant about the Olsen twins lol. Hopefully, there’s a few of you who agree with me? If not, at least this gave you a good laugh.

Have a happy Friday, everyone!

October Inspiration 2016

I’m here with my fashion inspiration photos of the month! You guys know how this goes. So for the month of October, according to all the photos I reblogged on Tumblr, I was inspired by chunky knits, velvet, tailored clothing/menswear, graphic tees, fishnets, sparkly things, and denim (as per usual lol). My love for turtlenecks has also been rekindled – yay! I’m patiently waiting for the perfect time to whip out my beret! Oh myyy, there’s so much I am looking forward to wearing this Fall/Winter!! Take a look below! I have TWENTY photos to share!! AH!

What fashion pieces/clothing items are your favourite during the Fall/Winter season? I’d love to know in the comments below!

Also, I have some exciting things coming your way! I VLOGGED a few days ago and I am so excited to edit it and share it with you guys. It was recorded on my iPhone, so it’s not my best camera skills but I enjoyed recording nonetheless – and I hope you guys will like it too! Another project I’m working on is a new series called “Wardrobe Additions”! I’m not sure if it’s going to be a monthly thing or a “play by ear” kind of thing, but I’m going to make blog posts on all the my pieces (whether thrifted or bought from Topshop lol), and share them with you all here! Exciting, no?!

I don’t want to give away too much, but I’m hoping I’ll get to share both these projects with you guys within the next week or so.

Until then, I hope you all have a great weekend! Happy Friday!

Love or Hate: Velvet

I’ve been nuts about velvet lately. I haven’t really gone crazy by adding a lot to my wardrobe yet (with the exception of a black velvet/embroidered bomber LOL), but I’ve definitely been appreciating velvet pieces while shopping this season. Velvet is 100% a trend right now. I love it, but I’m still a little cautious when it comes to pairing with it. As I write this post, I’m starting to think that maybe I should thrift a few velvet-y pieces and try styling them before I splurge on a cute pair of velvet pants or whatever at the mall. Sounds sensible, right? What are your guys’ feelings towards velvet?

Me? I love the look of textures. I love the idea of playing with textures. However, finding the confidence to actually go out in a multi-textured outfit is still a bit of a struggle. Then again, sometimes I’m wearing multiple textures without even realizing it! I just think that when done the wrong way, velvet could look tacky. I sometimes relate velvet to velour, and then I think of those Juicy Couture tracksuits and go “yuck”. But according to some articles those tracksuits are coming back, so I don’t even know anymore!! Below are some of the ways I’d want to style velvet. Let me know in the comments below if you like them :))

HAPPY MONDAAY!!

P.S. Having a laptop instead of a tablet is so much more motivating! Writing blog posts has never been easier!! It feels like a luxury LOL. Anyways, what I’m trying to say is that as long as I can come up with new ideas, I’m going to blog as often as I can!! So get ready. #blogpostsonblogposts

July Inspiration 2016

Hello lovely human beings of the internet! The end of the month is here and I can’t let the month end without an inspiration post!! That just wouldn’t be right.

For the month of July, I have been loving frayed denim jeans, belts, straw bags (obv, if you’ve read that blog post!), denim skirts, and statement earrings. I’ve also been loving the look of a button-up blouse tucked into looser jeans. (“Mom” jeans, essentially.) Overall, I’m really obsessed with the “model off-duty” look. To be honest, I always have been but I just recently have been applying the concept to my own personal style. If you don’t know what I mean by “model off-duty”, I mean the simple compilation of basics but somehow still coming out looking stylish af. It just seems effortless but still trendy. Maybe a better way to describe it is the “throw on and go” technique. It literally looks like that sometimes, and I love it. She grabs a shirt, a pair of jeans, cute shoes, statements earrings, and heads right on out the door! This is also part of the reason why I’ve been loving statement earrings lately. My outfits were so simple that a statement pair of earrings really helped balance everything/polished the look.

Perhaps I’m not best at describing it, but these photos will help you to better understand what I’m babbling about. If you still don’t get it, I’ll accept that I’m a freak.

So that’s everything for today! Thank you for stopping by and listening to my nonsense! Hope you come again ha-ha!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everybody!

Until next time,

June Inspiration’16

Hey lovely human beings! It’s that time of the month again! I’m back to share with you my collection of photos/inspiration for the month. As I look over the photos that I have collected throughout the month of June, I’ve noticed a lot of common things – denim, for one! I don’t understand how some people can hate wearing jeans, or even denim in general! Denim is classic! Jeans are going to be around forever. Recycled denim is the best! I love love love denim. I could go on, but then it’ll start to get a little weird. You get my point, right? Denim = Win.

Anyways, from looking at these photos, you guys can probably tell that I’ve been enjoying a good t-shirt paired with jeans. You really can’t go wrong. Whether it be a graphic tee or a nice blouse, I’ve been wearing it with a pair of jeans and a few accessories, and then I’ve been good to go! Keeping it minimal is kind of key. Summer really calls for simplicity because who wants to layer when it’s hot and humid?

I’ve also been loving pink. It’s really strange because I went from owning zero pink items in my closet, to owning like five. What is going on here?! Honestly, it’s so out of the ordinary for me to love pink so much that I am most definitely going to dedicate a blog post to just pink outfits. I’ve been seeing this color everywhere, am I crazy? I’m drawn to it, and I’m not complaining! Stay tuned for that post btw. I have a full blown list of blog post ideas, it’s finding the time to take pictures that’s the problem.

I really want to do a blog post on chokers, printed socks, pink (like I’ve already said), thrift finds, and bodysuits! On top of that, I really want to collaborate with other bloggers, as well as get this YouTube ball rolling! My memory card is currently with my mother because she wanted my graduation photos, but as soon as she gets it back to me, we’re good to go!

Also, I want my room to be a little more put together and decorated before it’s shared all over the internet. You feel me, right?

That’s everything for today’s post! I hope I’ve inspired you guys in some way or entertained you or whatever ha-ha. As always, I love blogging and sharing my thoughts on here.I’ve really started to notice how my style is evolving and maturing as time goes by. Hopefully, and I mean HOPEFULLY, I can blog and post more frequently than I have. I’m really starting to understand why some bloggers don’t have jobs. I mean, I get why blogging is a job on its own. This stuff is hard work.. Enough rambling!

Hope you guys are having a terrific Monday (at least as terrific as Mondays can be)!

Until next time,

May Inspiration 2016/UPDATE: I’VE MOVED!

Hey everybody! I’m back with a new blog post. I know it’s a little late for a May Favourites post, but I don’t want to skip a month! Also, with all the moving hysteria I haven’t had much time to take outfit photos.

But anyways, I’ve moved! I’ve moved into my very first apartment!!!! It’s a lot more work than I thought, but I am really happy with how it’s coming along. I’ve been cleaning, painting, organizing, and putting together a lot of IKEA furniture lol. I’ve been SUPER obsessed with home dĂ©cor lately. Do you have any websites you think I should check out? Let me know in the comment section below!!

My previous living arrangement was in a basement of a house shared with four other girls. It was the tiniest room (think like Harry Potter’s room under the stairs) and I couldn’t do anything in it. On top of that, I had the tiniest window so the lighting was horrible. NOW I have a huge window and a spacious room with an ACTUAL CLOSET. I can’t wait to have this place fully decorated, but of course it takes time and money. I’m thinking about making YouTube videos again, especially of the new apartment and the process of getting it all pretty! Not sure when I’ll get around to it, but still keep your eyes peeled for that! ;D

Now onto my May Favourites! May was a pretty hectic month for me. We were scrambling to find an apartment for June 1st. It was a only week before we had to move out when the apartment we REALLY wanted got back to us. It was honestly one of the best feelings/days ever. I had no idea what I was going to do until then!

So for May, I generally had been loving the same things. The inspiration for the past month was still all those transitional pieces when heading into Summer. A lot of lightweight and drape-y fabrics. Of course, denim (it’s me you’re talking to here). Prints, skirts, dresses, and CHOKERS. I am obsessed with chokers that I think I may do a blog post just dedicated to them. You know what? I’m so doing that. Stay tuned!

 

So this is my update/late May Favourites post! I hope you all enjoyed it! I do have to admit that I am glad to be back, and ready to come at you in full force.

Hope you all have a fab weekend!

Until next time,

Wrapped Up In White

I’ve always loved white. I mean, I don’t think you can ever go wrong with choosing white. Well I guess you could.. One wee mistake and you could ruin your shirt or whatever/make it look filthy. It doesn’t take much to make it look filthy, does it? I guess wearing white is only great while it lasts lol.

For today’s blog post I’m choosing to talk about my newly found love for all things white. By all things white, I literally mean ALL things. I’m really digging all white outfits. I’m also digging white dĂ©cor (ya’ll know I’m moving in a few weeks ;D). Everything just looks so crisp, clean, and sophisticated in white. White also looks fantastic with a tan, that’s a bonus! I don’t know how you guys feel, but I really believe that white’s the way to go these days. My last few purchases have been white items (not that I’m spending money on clothes instead of saving for my apartment or anything ba-ha). Between you and me, I’ve got white jeans and two white tops so far. It’s been like a streak of just white. I’m going to see how long ’til I break it. Imagine if I only bought white clothes from now on.. HA!

I’ve compiled a few photos that are strictly white to show you guys how lovely white can be. I know a few of you may not find it practical, but look at how pretty these photos are!!

Hope you enjoy!

 

So what do you guys think of this white trend? Let me know in the comment box below!!

Yours truly,
