Grommet

20171110_164416

I have been so obsessed with the grommet trend lately, if you follow my instagram you would have also seen this post. When I saw this jacket I had to have it, it’s trendy but I know I will be wearing this year round and not just during the fall and winter time.

I purchased this jacket at Ross so I can not link this exact one but you can check out this one from GUESS or this one from Forever21.

I purchased this crop top at Forever21, it was so inexpensive I also purchased it in black and left the white one behind, kinda regretting it now. Similar top here.

The black lace-up skirt I purchased it at Forever21 and the exact one I have is sold out but I did find this similar one, here. The booties are from JustFab via Plato’s closet (my sisters booties) a alternative, here.

Lastly this cute velvet ring purse from Ross, (thanks to my twin) she bought this for me. The straps are adjustable which is a plus for me because I hate when I can’t carry a purse as a crossbody. I love the gold hardware and the texture paired together. You can purchase this similar one if you’d like.

Obsessed with these pieces. I know for sure that I will get a lot of use out of them because they are classic and basic but they all have a fun texture, style and color to the point where they are wearable for every day.

H&M

Red loose sweater – So if you all read my last blog post then you know this was on my wishlist. When I saw it at H&M I grabbed it so fast and it was in my size, the last one. It was ment to be. The sweater is so soft and comfy. It is loose but true to size. It is going to look so cute with my high-waisted jeans and black faux leather skirt to add some fun texture. (Size small)

High-waist jeans – I have been on the hunt for the perfect high-waisted jeans. These are so comfy, they fit well, have a good stretch, make your booty look good and they are soft not rough. Definitely going back to buy more colors. (Size 6)

Forever 21

Lace up skirt – I couldn’t find the one I bought in the store but I did link a similar one. But I really love the lace up detail because it’s different and out of my comfort zone. Plus it is going to look cute with a tucked in sweater or shirt.

Faux leather mini skirt – I love the fit of this skirt. It hugs you in all the right places and it has a nice stretch to it as well. It’s not a super thick skirt but definitely breatheable. Faux leather skirt are perfect for casual to dressy looks. Can’t wait to wear mine with some sneakers or heels depending on where I go.

Camis – I used to wear camis in every color in high school just like that alone and I love pairing them under t-shirts as well. Now that I’m older I love the idea of wearing these tanks alone for a sexy look with a choker on. I got one in black and in white. I love to wear these tanks with strapless bras so it doesn’t look too casual of that makes any sense. I want the tanks to look dressed up.

Have any of you purchased anything from your wishlist? I still have a few things that I want for my fall wardrobe but what’s the point if the weather here don’t allow me to buy cold appropriate clothes. sad.

H&M wishlist.

PhotoGrid_1506294229687

I don’t know about you all but I love to read/watch bloggers & youtubers wishlists. I especially love watching Lily Melrose wishlists everytime she posts them. So I think it would be fun to write a blog post and share with you all the things I’m interested in buying for the fall season. I hope you all enjoy this post and I would love to know what are some fashion pieces you are interested in buying.

Knit sweaters

Red loose knit sweater – I have been on the hunt for a sweater this color for so long. I walked into H&M about two weeks ago and I almost purchased a sweater in the same color but it was $30. My sister convinced I would come across a little more affordable one soon….well I think this one is it.

Mustard knit sweater – This sweater and color will look so good with any colored pants, the warm tone ia what makes it super wearable with any pants you own in your closet. Also I can see myself wearing this sweater with my cropped leather jacket I have from Zara.

Pants

Stovepipe pants – The pattern on these are so cute and on trend this season. The slim cut on these makes it much more easier to style with some edgy platforms to make the masculine pants look a little bit chic and girly.

Faux leather pants – Leather pants are hard to find especially a fit that will be good for your body. The slight tapered legs can bw very flattering on any body type. These will look cute with some black and white converse, the red knit sweater above and a cool jacket over it for a casual look.

Tops

Turtle neck top – Ok I love stripes, I’ve never met a stripe I didn’t like. This slightly loose top will be easy to tuck in into the faux leather pants above, a black brim hat, and some adorable metallic loafers for a parisian look.

Short mesh top – I love dark florals especially this one because of the purple it has in it. The sheer adds a bit of sexyness to this top. Just add a flirty bralette underneath and a cute leather skirt for a fun date night look.

Fun skirts

Short skirt – The stars on this skirt is such a fun little detail. My inner kid screams of excitement. Stars are a fun trend going on this fall and this skirt is perfect for all the trendy fashionistas.

Lace up skirt – This is such a amazing skirt. The lace-up trend is still standing strong and it’s here to stay. The lace-up detail gives this skirt a nice bad girl vibe.

Accessories

Hat – The captain & baker boy hat is everywhere this season and one of my favorite youtubers, Ashley Brooke rocks it so well.

Earrings – I don’t wear big, dangly earrings like I used to but these are so pretty. The color is so eye catching and makes a statement to a very basic outfit.

I hope you all enjoy this post and hopefully you all had a great weekend. What’s on your wishlist?

Waiting for fall.

Fall is upon us……finally. Where I live it was finally cool enough to wear a knit sweater. I wore this outfit for a errand I had to do (shopped for a upcoming fall giveaway). Since it wasn’t super cold I was also able to wear some ripped denim and some cute oxblood mules.

A little closer look. These shoes added a fun pop of color to this casual outfit. I can see myself wearing them with some black high-rise skinny jeans and a black mock neck bodysuit.

Thrift.

This past month I have been thrifting every week and I have found some amazing clothing pieces. I love finding clothes when they have the original tag intact or when I find something still in good condition without the original tags. But overall I have been getting lucky. I have a lot of great tips that I have learned when it comes to thrifting that I know wi be helpful to you all who want to get into thrifting.

I did do a thrift haul on my sisters youtube channel, so all of you can see what I picked up over the past month. So go ahead and check it out and subscribe if you want to see more videos on my sisters channel. Thriftmeout is a fun channel about my sister showing her thrift finds and styling magazine & celebrity outfits off thrifting pieces, if that makes any sense to you all.

Get into my closet. N1.

Spring is coming and I am already thinking about my Spring wardrobe. Today I want to share some of my picks that I’m currently wanting for my closet so I can wear. I will be starting my Spring cleaning soon, (my closet) and donating clothes I wont be transitioning from winter to spring. I want to make room for some new clothes. While looking for new pieces for spring, I want to pick out clothing I can wear over and over again but in different ways of course. I want classic pieces with a hint of trendy. I hope you all enjoy this new series on the blog called, Get into my closet which will be about me showing you what I want in my closet so I can wear on a daily basis. Hope you all had a great weekend.

1. Dress with frilled sleeves. – I have a denim dress with lace-up details on the chest area, with short sleeves in a dark wash color but this one from Zara is so pretty. I love the frilled sleeves and I think it will look cute with my cropped leather jacket and the frills peeking out of the sleeves for a date night look with some cute strappy heels.

2. Denim crop top. This is a perfect crop top. So wearable for the day with some black or grey joggers and so cropped ankle jeans for the night time.

3. Long denim jacket. When I saw this long denim jacket, I immediately pictured myself wearing it with my floral mock neck bodysuit, medium washed, distress denim skirt and some sock ankle booties.

1. Cropped shirt. The sleeves on this top gives the blouse a girly, romantic feel. I can already see myself wearing it with some white skinny jeans and nude espadrille wedges.

2. Gingham check top. I remember Gingham was a huge trend a few years ago and I never purchased anything in that print because no top caught my attention. I love the silhouette of this top, it has a fun and quirky look.

3. Colorful metallic top. I do not own anything with jewel tone stripes especially something with a metallic finish. I love the colors, I love how it’s stripes, (classic print) this top will look adorable paired with a high-waisted leather skirt.

1. High-rise mini flare jeans. I feel like every girl has at least one pair of white denim but not ones with frayed hems. I love how these are flared, frayed and cropped. These will look cute with just about anything and are a perfect staple for spring.

2. Fringed hem skirt. I can already tell this skirt will be perfect for a nice beach day with some slide strappy sandals and some pretty heels at night time. The slit gives this skirt a nice and sexy touch.

3. High-rise wax trousers. I have been wanting a pair of wax trousers but I have been having a hard time finding a pair that fits me good. Hopefully if I decide to get these they will fit perfect.

1. Crossover suede sandals. The crossover strap and color both are a wearable and trendy must have heel for my wardrobe because they will go with everything.

2. Stretch leather ankle boot. This color is so pretty. If paired right, yellow can go with anything you wear.

3. Crossover leather wedges. This type of shoe I would be scare to wear because they look a little granny-ish but the leather detail and wedge can give a outfit a nice casual edge.

*Not sponsored. I just decided to pick Zara because they always have the cutest things.

D.I.Y. Uneven Hem

photogrid_1485477750436

As most of you know from my two previous post, here. I’ve been wanting to try out this trend for a while because it just looks different, fun and cool. The uneven hem makes the Jeans look more better and gives it a nice touch. While on pinterest I saw a lot of cute pictures or women styling this trend. Just recently I saw these uneven hem jeans at H&M and I wanted to buy them but I thought I would cut up some of my old jeans and test it out first. The jeans I was going to use, I ended up cutting them into shorts, so I went with a pair I bought two years ago at my job. I don’t like how they look from the bottom so I thought I would make them look a little better and trendy-er. Also previous to falling in love with this trend, I watched a video from Ashley Brooke and followed her steps. I hope you all enjoy this post.

Have any of you tried this trend? If you are going to DIY some uneven hem jeans, please be careful because I ended up cutting myself. I couldn’t find my seam ripper and ended up using my X-acto knife.

photogrid_1485478085155

The ending results turned out good but I will be distressing them more and add some shredded details to the bottom. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Hopefully I get to find some uneven hem jeans in my size soon because I am obsessed and I think they will be perfect for Spring.
