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!),

January ’16 Inspiration

Hey friends! I’m back with a monthly inspiration post! I hope you don’t mind but I enjoyed monthly inspiration posts last year, so I think I’m just going to keep them going. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll notice that during the month of January my inspiration has not changed much. During the colder months, I definitely prefer layering (in the most fashionable way possible). This month I’ve also noticed that I was gravitating more towards my trousers/dress pants. I have this favourite pair of navy pinstripe trousers and I’m pretty sure I wore them the most. As you can see in the pictures, I’ve preferred looser clothing – the “oversized” look. I think this look makes it easier to layer stuff underneath so that I’m warmer. I usually layer with turtlenecks (ya’ll know how much I LOVE turtlenecks!!). Another trend I’ve been keeping up with this month is the “white sneaker” trend. Definitely been pairing them with the trousers and my high-waisted mom jeans throughout the month. Although all these pieces that I’ve been loving are more on the masculine side, I’ve been making sure to wear more feminine accessories. A good pair of earrings usually does the trick!

 

That’s all I have for this month’s inspiration! I hope this post made your Monday a little bit better, and hopefully I’ll have another post for you all sometime soon xx

Until then,

  • A ❤

 

Welcoming the NEW YEAR

Hey guys! Today I have a different kind of post to share. As I’m sure you’re all aware, it’s not 2014 anymore! I know it’s been a week but HELLO 2015!! Around this time of year people are often creating their new year’s resolutions. What is it that they say? New year, new me? Who cares. Why does a new year make a new you? YOU make a new you. If you think about it, it’s really just another day. I clearly don’t support the idea of depending on the new year to change yourself, but I do support the idea of bettering yourself! This could be done any time of year! For instance, I have decided to learn how to cook (properly), to spend money a little more wisely, and to drink more water! I think these little things could be great changes for me and I’m going to work hard to stick to them! I get my cooking skills from my mother, and by skills, I mean the lack there of. My Bucket List has always consisted of me getting proper cooking lessons but I think for now I’m going to try the self-teaching method hah (wish me luck!). As a fashion blogger, I find it really hard not to purchase all the latest trendy pieces. Working at Topshop doesn’t really help me either. I’m going to try my best to be smart and only purchase items that I know I’ll get my money’s worth. Items that I can basically see myself getting a lot of use out of. If I end up saving money like I hope to, I am dying to plan a trip. Anywhere. Seriously, just get me on a plane!! (I’ve never been on one.. shhh!!) Finally: water. I definitely don’t drink as much water as I should, and to change that I bought a reusable water bottle that I plan on carrying with me everywhere! At restaurants I am only asking for water. No pop. Water is soo good for you! Not only is it healthy but it’s great for your skin! I highly recommend you all to try and do the same!!

So yeah, that’s my plan. How are you planning on bettering yourself this year? Let me know in the comments below!
