Summer 2018 Fashion Wishlist

Uncategorized

Hey there!

First fashion post on this blog! Whooo!

Today I’m going to be showing you five things on my fashion wishlist for this summer. I make one of these lists every season as inspiration for things I might like or styles to keep an eye out for. I probably won’t buy any of these things, but these are items I’m lusting over right now!

  1. I love this sweatshirt from Modcloth because it looks really comfortable but is still really cute and classy! This is exactly the kind of thing I’d like to wear to a coffee shop to do work because I get cold easily.
  2. I saw a purse similar to this on Etsy, but I definitely prefer this one from ASOS. It’s so colorful and such a statement piece. I’d style this with overalls, a white t shirt, and plain shoes so that this purse could steal the show.
  3. This skirt from Madison and Mallory is such a cute jean skirt. I think the strong details of buttons and the big pockets would make me feel more comfortable wearing this if I’m feeling bloated. I think this would look really cute with a chill t shirt and my metallic oxfords.
  4. I don’t exactly know how often I’d get to wear this skirt, but I couldn’tĀ not put it on this list. Ban.do just knows how to do cute clothes– it sucks that they’re a more expensive brand! I think this would look really cute the way they styled it but also just with a plain tank top or shirt. Sidenote: there’s also a matching jacket, but that seems like a bit much. Maybe.
  5. This shirt is also from Ban.do and I love that it’s a) feminst; b) looks vintage; and c) is so ridiculously easy to style. Even just with jean shorts, cute shorts, and a statement purse, this could look pretty fab.

What’s on your wishlist? Let me know in the comments šŸ˜‰

My “Uniforms” for Summer (Or: How I Look Cute On Days When I Don’t Want to Try)

fashion

Hey cuties!

Another fashion post coming at you today, this time all about how to make getting dressed and still looking good on bad days easier.

The Golden Rule

Not to treat others the way you want to be treated– though this is a good rule to follow. I’m talkingabout the golden rule of dressing easily:

Know what works and stick to it: know what outfits you feel comfortable in and don’t have to think about, and wear those on days when you don’t want to worry about what you’re wearing but you still want to look cute.

My “Uniforms”

I have effectively three uniforms, for days when I need to get up early or when I’m feeling pretty shitty. They get progressively more “fancy”:

Uniform Option One: Jeans/jean shorts, a graphic t-shirt, and a comfortable pair of shoes.

If I want to slightly dress this up, I’ll throw on a scarf as well. This always looks okay, and is a little better than the sweatpants and tank top I usually want to wear. Generally I find shirts that are branded or that I got free from school (is this where my parents’s tax dollars went when I was in high school?) make me feel lazy and not cute, so I go more for shirts with cute sayings or with a pattern.

In this photo I’m wearing a pair of dark wash jean shorts from American Eagle, a t-shirt from Target (admittedly from the sleepwear section), and a pair of pink velvet sneakers from Steve Madden (similar here). My purse is Michael Kors, but you can find a cheaper similar one hereĀ (which I have in yellow!). (Though I will say I’ve had my Michael Kors one for three years and it looks good as new and has definitely been worn enough for the price tag).

Uniform Option Two: Jean shorts, a pair of comfortable shoes, and a nicer shirt.

If I’m feeling shitty, I’ll go for a more loose-fitting shirt, but one that’s stillĀ nicer than a t-shirt. I’ll wear this generally if I’m trying to impress someone, like yesterday when I went to a workshop. I had a terrible symptoms but I wanted to look nice.

For this picture I wore a shirt from Primark (you can find a similar shirt here and here), the same jean shorts from American Eagle, sandals from Baretraps, and a bomber jacket from Francesca’s (you can find a similar one here). My purse is from Target, but you can find a similar one here.

Uniform Option Three: A comfortable sundress, comfortable shoes, and something sparkly.

The ones I find myself grabbingĀ are from Primark (which is where the one I’m wearing in the picture is from), which isn’t easy to get in the US unless you’re lucky enough like I am to live in a city with a shop. I do also like these dresses from Old Navy, however they’re more structured than the Primark ones in that they have zippers and aren’t made of as stretchy a material.

The closest thing I could find to the Primark dress I’m wearing in the photo (which were only 5$!) are these dresses from H&M. With my Primark dress, I’m wearing the same sandals from the second photo and druzy necklace I got from an arts fair (you can find a similar one from Etsy here)(of course, my phone is blocking the necklace anyways but I thought it was worth mentioning!). My purse is the same brown crossbody from Target.

Of course, there are other outfits I have as go to-s. If you want me to make a post about my go-to outfits for different occasions (class, coffee with friends, doctor’s appointment, etc), let me know in the comments!

What’s your “uniform” for days when you don’t feel like trying?
