January Inspiration ’17

Hello, friends. I’m here with the first inspiration post of 2017!!! AHH!! Where did the time go?! I can’t believe that January is coming to an end already. I’m not going to lie, but I feel like I’ve had a great start to 2017. I just recently was promoted to a management position at work! I feel very motivated and determined, not just about work, but just in terms of life. I feel like I have everything in order right now. I know it sounds corny. I just feel really positive and happy, and I hope these feelings will continue in the months to come :))

Since I’ve been in a real positive mindset, I’ve been very comfortable going out of my comfort zone in terms of style. I’ve become more confident! I’ve been trying new things and experimenting with patterns and colours even more than before! I’ve been really into creating full looks and have gone as far as styling my hair!! If you know me, I have never been big on styling my hair. Normally, I’ll blow dry it a bit then let the rest air dry. That’s it! But lately I’ve been putting my curling wand to good use, and I actually kind of like it lol.

Now for my inspiration this month, the majority of it is more colourful. I love prints/patterns, I love mixing patterns, and I love BRIGHT colours. I really want to make a statement and maybe create a real brand for myself. I want to focus on really figuring out what my style really is, and how to best compliment my petite figure. For 2017, I want to find a way to benefit and really help other women who are tiny in terms of style and how to dress. Take a look at this month’s inspiration photos!!! –>

I don’t know about you but I’m so excited to see what 2017 brings me! I really want to accomplish a lot and make this year really count – but only time will tell!

I hope you guys are having a great week so far! :))

Until next time,

Currently Loving (&HAPPY NEW YEAR!)

Hey friends! I’m currently a victim of a terrible stomach bug, and have isolated myself in my room with nothing to do. I can’t sit around and do nothing, so I thought I’d be productive and share a blog post! I kind of lost track of my “December Inspiration” and therefore I’ve decided to just share inspiration photos/photos of things I’m “currently loving”. I’ll probably continue to do monthly inspiration posts for 2017 because I like to see how my taste evolves throughout the year. I am going to put a stop to “Wardrobe Additions” though. As much as I liked the idea, I feel like it has encouraged me to shop more. I’ll go shopping and think: “I love this! And I could add it to my Wardrobe Additions for the month, so that’s even better!” So basically I was buying (or thinking of buying) even more clothes just for blog content. Definitely not the kind of mentality I should have if I want to save my money, pay off student loans, and travel. I have plenty of clothes that I can remix and re-style. I think that’s the great part about fashion and personal style. It works for any budget, and it’s more about how you express yourself than if you have the latest trendy piece. So here are some photos that inspire my current taste in fashion/style, and also some photos that I just loove right now:

There you have it! A quick post on what’s currently inspiring me style-wise. I know it’s not much, but it’s something! A new year’s resolution of mine if to be more consistent with blogging and to really (like actually) start my YouTube channel. I will keep you guys updated!

And until then, I hope you all had happy holidays and I can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store!

Have a great weekend (hope your Friday is going better than mine!),

T.G.I.F.

Friday. What’s not to love! No class, it’s the beginning of the weekend, and I have the time to create my first blog post! I’m new to the world of fashion blogs, but I’d like to formally introduce myself…

Hi! My name is Alannah. I live in Toronto and I’m in my third year of college where I’m studying Fashion Management. I snort when I laugh, I’m short, I’m half Filipino, half Canadian, and I have a weird obsession with kittens at the moment (I WANT ONE SO BAD). That’s basically all you need to know, but if you would like to know more about me, I plan on creating an ‘About Me’ page in the near future (haha).

Today’s post is my outfit that I wore on my day off. I went out with my boyfriend, ate some brunch, and went for a walk on campus near the lakeshore.

For my outfit, I wore a matching set that I purchased from Forever21. I love matching sets/separates. Not only are they stylish and trendy, but they’re easy! I feel like you don’t have to think about it as much as you would with a regular outfit. Actually, you really don’t have to think about it at all (lol)! To go with this set, I wore my new Zara booties with gorgeous zipper and buckle detailing. I’m in love with them. I find the chunky look of them absolutely gorgeous! I was very minimal with my accessories today because I felt like the dress spoke for itself, as well as my boots. For a bag I used this faux leather tote that I also bought from Forever21. I certainly didn’t need to carry such a big bag, but for some strange reason I have never thought to add a small black purse to my wardrobe. Isn’t it kind of essential? Consider it added to my wishlist, and I will most definitely let you know when I find one ;D
