Trend Alert: Showing the Sexy One Shoulder

Despite the cold weather coming our way, this new trend involves showing off a little bit of skin. A major trend for the fall 2017 season is the one shoulder where a top will show a classy amount of shoulder. I personally think this look could be sophisticated yet casual at the same time. Here are a few outfits that you can style after if you dare to rock that shoulder.

 This is one of my favorite outfits for just a day out or when you don’t want to wear Nike shorts to class anymore. I love this simple white top and cut off as it gives a laid back look. I added Adidas shoes for comfort and to give it some edge.

Of course, I cannot do a trend without having a sexy outfit! I love this bodycon one sleeve top with a choker built in. With it being a high neck top I would style it with a ponytail. My favorite fall color is burgundy so I wanted to incorporate it a little bit as well as a few gold accents. My styling tip is to try to match your shoes with your bag so the outfit is not all over the place!

When I first saw this top I was absolutely in love! Since the top had a lot going on I wanted to style it with plain bottoms, so I added some culottes and some nude heels. Since there was not a lot of color to the outfit, I added the colorful clutch to give it more of a fun twist to it. This outfit is great if you’re going to a function, it’s sophisticated yet fun!

I wanted to create another casual outfit so I found this gingham print dress which is so adorable! I am a minimalistic dresser so I just added a sweet necklace and some white, lace up espadrilles. This is an outfit you can wear to a picnic or just to walk around a city (especially in Europe). Since the straw bag was rather popular in the summer I thought it would make the look more laid back.

I absolutely love this dress! If you have stayed with me these past few years I have been a huge fan of lace! The cut cutouts in the middle make the dress a little bit sexy and make me which I had the body and the place to wear this to! I love a good smokey eye and tousled hair to give it a relaxed look to it.
Remember that trends may come and go but always stay true to your original style. I hope you have fun with this trend and I hope to see you in my next post! I am so glad to be back!

Summer Packing List

Every summer my family and I go to the beach for a few days to relax from our crazy schedules. Each year I always try to figure out to pack such as different outfits and little extra materials that I could possibly need, but there are always a few things that I always take with me.

Sunglasses are an outfit essential in the summer time as the sun gets brighter, the harder it is to see. Squinting is an option but it hurts after a while and can also cause wrinkles. It protects eyes from getting a sunburn, yes it does happen, and it also quite stylish because I am always pretending to be Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Every time I go to the beach, I am always trying to finish my reading list for school. After a few hours in the water, it is nice to sit underneath a beach umbrella and get absorbed into a book. Being a book nerd, it is nice to hear the sounds of the ocean that make me relax and enjoy my book so much more.

In the summer, flip flops are my go to shoe because they are so easy to just slip on and go. Feet can finally breathe and can help make the sock tan line go away. Flip flops do not always have to be boring, there are all types of styles. I currently own a black pair I got from Target because they go with everything, especially my black bathing suit. There are platform flip flops and some with jewels on the straps, they are literally something that can fit everyone’s unique styles.

Many people would not think to bring money to the beach. There might be an ice cream man passing by or a cute store on the boardwalk, it is always better to carry a few bills in case of an emergency such as seeing a cute pair of earrings or an ice cream on a hot day.

Going on vacation may seem relaxing but it can be stressful with family and activities that calm is much needed. The beach also is not always relaxing when there is sand flying everywhere and sea gulls attacking. I love listening to soft tunes that can help me  playlist includes Cody Simpson, Jack Johnson, Elvis Presley and John Mayer, also possibly the Beach Boys.

Although staying in a hotel is convenient because you have someone to clean up after you, I think renting a house makes the experience much more fun. Staying in a house rather than a hotel makes someone less of a tourist and more of a traveler as they try to discover more than the main attraction, it is like creating a more personal relationship with an adventure.

1. I have a strong desire to travel, but I hate planes. I really cannot go by car much longer either as sitting just makes me anxious after a few hours. Despite wanting to go to London, Sydney and L.A. I cannot travel on a plane for a little more than 4 hours or else I also get anxious. As you can see I get anxious a lot.
2. A Cinderella Story is my favorite movie of all time. The movie with Hillary Duff as the main girl. I love the music they play along with the story line, I am still waiting as the outcast girl to have a kiss in the rain with the quarterback of the football team.

Favorite moment right there! ^
3. My music is completely random. Although I cannot sing I do sing to different genres of songs from the Frozen soundtrack to All Time Low to Iggy Azalea.
4. I have an obsession with bunnies! Even though I had one when I was 8, I really started wanting one again. Maybe name her Alice. I even have a bunny shaped lamp.
5. I am a hopeless romantic. If you haven’t known, I love the whole Romeo and Juliet type of stories, make sure it has a happy ending. I hope one day I can get my happy ending despite the horrors of real life.
6. The Gallagher Girls Series is my favorite series of all time! I have read each book about 5 times and I still love them. The funny moment is I feel like Cammie Morgan and I are like one person.
7. I named a sack of sugar Lucas Ashton Calum Clifford. In Psych class we had to carry around a sack of sugar and pretend it was a baby so I named it after the members of my favorite band 5 Seconds of Summer.
I would like to thank you for reading my posts along with sticking with my random posts whatever they may be about.
I kind of literally went through my Twitter feed to figure on what to put as my facts and items.

TV Outfits: Jane Quimby

There comes a time in everyone’s life when they experience the worst, when their favorite TV show is canceled. As much as I hope that Jane by Design will have a new season (curse you ABC Family), or have the show on Netflix, it will always be in my heart. Ever since the show aired when I was in 8th grade, I thought it was cute. But than it turned into this amazing show that inspired me, it showed me what I wanted to do in life and that is be apart of the fashion world. Jane Quimby has been someone to inspire my outfits as she was a character who knew what she wanted to do, even when others didn’t believe in her dreams. I love how her character makes most of her own clothes, which I would love to do. Sadly I won’t be able to wear some of her outfits (like the 3 inch heels) until I am out of college as others do not believe it is acceptable to wear heels in school, it is nice to dream.

I would love to wear this dress, when I get married.

This happens to be my all time favorite dress of hers that I wish to wear to prom!

How to Dress Like Jane:
Sadly the clothes she once wore are all gone since the show ended almost 2 years ago (sadly crying in the corner), but looking at vintage or very unique and cute pieces can work. Wear lot of tulle skirts, that is what I can say along mixing print is a major plus. Just have fun with it, her style is so her own which makes me love it so much! And I would recommend wearing heels, but I don’t know about wearing them in high school though. Yikes.

Too bad this show was canceled, it help me realize who I am, and I guess I am not longer lost on what I want to do in life.

To Be A Princess

65c0ba40bb5c1a54871c5bb625719740

 

Scrolling through my Facebook dash (hiding my Tumblr from my mom) and texting my best friend Maria, it seems like everyone has been going to Disney World, while I’m stuck in my boring little town of Maryland.

I started dreaming about the magical world of Disney with characters like Peter Pan and Snow White and far off places like Neverland and Wonderland. Then I got to thinking of the beautiful castles that light up at the night, the places where the princesses and princes stay and live. Since recently Belle and the Beast’s castle is now opened to the public, I wondered what it was like to be a princess, what exactly are the qualities.

Just last year I was a few of those who wanted to dress up as a princess for Princess Teddy Bear Tea Party, sadly I wasn’t picked but I learned a little from the experience.

To Be a Princess:

  • You are not perfect, you don’t have to look like all the models in the magazine or don’t have to wear the pounds of make up you see on other girls.
  • Make mistakes means learning from them.
  • Falling down doesn’t mean its the end, you will always have bad times.
  • Get through the tough times strong.
  • Be someone you would want to be.
  • Believe in yourself no matter what you go through.
  • Be unique.
  • Stand up for your beliefs.

You are you and do not change anything about yourself because being you is perfect.

I had found this video from Disney which is hopefully more inspiring by 10000000000000% then I wrote above. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it and inspire you to like it inspired me too.

Inspiration Board

I do not own this!
I do not own this!

Diclaimer: I do not own the picture! It was from Lauren Conrad’s Instagram and I was just too lazy to take a picture of mine!

If maybe Pinterest really isn’t your thing but you wanna keep all those pretty things together, what do you do? Start an inspiration board! Recently I have been scrolling mindlessly through Tumblr and Instagram and YouTube which is such a normal thing that I usually maybe every 5 seconds! So recently I have discovered MacBarbie07 on YouTube and I literally am OBSESSED with her! Not the creepy obsessed like I’m a stalker and… well I mean I like her fashion, videos and DIY.

I had watched her roomspiration video and I found this really cool room idea since I have recently moved this past summer and I have finally got my own room without living in a rented home so I can actually Elyseify my room! (And yes Elyseify is word, but sadly the Oxford people haven’t heard of it to put it in the dictionary). She had printed out pictures that she really liked and was going to stick them on her wall in the shape of a heart. If you want to do that, well that sounds really fun! I have also noticed that my friend Sam has an inspiration board on her notebook and maybe Lauren Conrad does too, she had it on Instagram.

If you don’t know what an Inspiration Board, its a place where you put pictures that you love and give you this happy and giddly feeling and you are inspire by it.

Since I have magazines since May 2012 and its February 2013, it was time to do a clean out. I have started what I called my “magazine” sometime last year but I never got up to date with it. So I had cut out the pictures and articles that I liked and then threw away the old magazines (even including the One Direction ones, tear).

To Elyseify my room, I have looked online and have saved pictures from Instagram and Tumblr to a folder which was originally for photoshoot ideas since for Christmas I have gotten a Canon (my new baby!) and was hoping to take very artsy pictures. I was thinking once I get ink in my printer I was going to print the pictures and stick them on my walls so my room doesn’t look like a boring white blob.

My tips to find pictures is like maybe Google, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram and maybe even your like pages on Facebook (or is that dead yet). Try to either put the pictures on your wall, a scrap book, a notebook, a bulletin board or even your locker and it will be very funky and cool and give you that giddly feeling!

So get creative with it!
