OOTD: Turtleneck Weather

I got this yellow turtleneck for only $5 at Forever 21. Originally, it was $17.99, but I snagged this sweater for way cheaper because it was during their big sale after New Year’s Eve. I love wearing sweaters during the winter time, but the cropped ones definitely flatter my shape more and look great with high waisted jeans.

August Favorites

So for this favorites post, I don’t have a ton of beauty products to share. I have a lot of random products and accessories to share instead. I also share some TV and literature stuff here too, so hopefully you enjoy the mixed bag of favorites I will be sharing.FullSizeRender (9)

So I’ve been using this Lancome Blush Subtil, which is an oil free blush and I love how understated and rosy this color is. On darker skin, it pops just enough. A lot of the times, I’ll see blushes in vibrant colors and it just doesn’t work on my skin tone. The shimmer on this is also amazing. The second product is the Lancome Youth Activating Eye Cream, and it’s awesome if you have dark circles. You just need a little dime size amount to dab around your eyes.FullSizeRender (8)

This $7.99 watch is rubber and it is from Joyce Leslie. I have a rose gold watch, which I love, but it’s not versatile to wear every day. This one is nice because it’s rubber and easy to wear everyday. I also love this nude color with the gold on this watch. Also, I’ve been obsessed with gold rings as well. I’ve been loving the ring trend, where people wear tons of rings on one hand. These ones were $5.00 from Rue21 and if you don’t want them to turn your finger green, use some clear nail polish on them.FullSizeRender (7)

This was a cute notebook for a buck at Michael’s. It’s small enough to take everywhere so I’ve been jotting homework and blog ideas in here. If you’re a writer like myself, take one of these around everywhere you go.FullSizeRender (11)

This was a book I read during the month of August. Here’s my full review here:https://mytrendingstories.com/article/book-review-since-youve-been-gone/ Overall, I really loved the message of this book. It’s about living your life to the fullest around the people that make you happy. The main character goes through some serious growth and the love interest is a fantastic character as well.FullSizeRender (13)

These sunglasses were $2.00 from Wet Seal, and I just kind of threw them in my basket because they were cheap. But if you’re nervous to try these kinds of retro sunglasses, these are great. I wear them everywhere.

stranger things

This was my show of the summer. It was so amazing. Also, here’s my full review:https://mytrendingstories.com/article/review-lets-talk-about-stranger-things-season-1/ I love these kids. I want Millie, Finn, Caleb and Gaten to be my best friends. They’re fantastic, and the plot is pretty original with little homages to movies like E.T and Super 8.

Anyway, I know my list if random, but I hoped you enjoyed it! 🙂

PLL Fashion 7×07

 

There was a won of fashion from the last PLL episode, so here are my thoughts on the fashion. Also, you can check out my review right here: https://mytrendingstories.com/article/pretty-little-liars-season-7-episode-7-review-original-gangsters/

Forever 21 ‘Contemporary Open-Shoulder Top’ – $14.90

I loved this off the shoulder top for Emily. It’s super effortless and I love the choker and loose waves giving an easygoing summer vibe. And this top is super affordable too.

Topshop ‘Embroidered Jacquard Jacket’ – $59.99

This Topshop jacket is super pretty for Aria. I love how architectural this jacket is with its boxy structure.

H&M ‘Merino Wool Sweater’ – no longer available

Yvonne wore a super low key sweater, and I love how casual and cute it is. The sheer front has such a delicate scenery pattern, which I like a lot.

Topshop ‘Striped Hybrid Jumper’ – $80.00

This one piece jumper is very Spencer. It’s classic, simple and Troian always rocks these types of preppy looks.

Zara ‘Patchwork Leather Mini Skirt’ – $69.90

Aria is known for her main staple, which are leather jackets, but she opts for an interesting Zara skirt. I love the patchwork with the different muted colors.

Topshop ‘Gingham Ruffle Shirt’ – $60.00

Hanna surprised me with this textured top. This top has a lot going on with the flowers and the gingham print and the ruffles, but Hanna pairs it with a classic jacket. It made for a fun outfit with a sharp look.

Forever 21 ‘Galaxy Print Athletic Jacket’ – no longer available

So when Emily and Pam were on their run, I noticed how cute this jacket was. It’s sold out, but who knew Forever 21 had such great affordable athletic wear.

Stella McCartney ‘Jeweled Sateen Top’ – $326.00

This jeweled top is super pretty. I love how random the colors and shapes are because the top is so simple. It really works here. Thanks to PLL Closet on Tumblr for the photos and details on the clothing from the episode.

The Fosters Fashion

Here’s my latest review for The Fosters: https://mytrendingstories.com/article/the-fosters-review-justify/

Mariana’s blue lace top was super pretty and I love how soft the color looks on her. Callie wore a similar top to this earlier this season, but I really like how she wore her hair up this time.

Spring/Summer College Outfits

I was very busy in college with classes and finals, so I barely had time to share my outfits from school. Here is a compilation of some of my favorite looks from the school year that I managed to find on my phone.

image1

Forever 21 Romper: $12.99: I loved this romper because it was super comfortable to wear out, and then it was really cute during the day to wear with a cardigan and converse sneakers.

Rue 21 Sweatshirt: $5.00 Forever 21 Leggings: $3.99: I loved how casual this look was. The sweatshirt was perfect for class and it looks a little bit more put together with leggings and converse.

image4

Black Knitted Crop Top: $8.99: I loved this crop top  because of the high neckline and the fit. It pairs well with high-waisted jeans because it isn’t too cropped to the point that my stomach was too exposed.

Lizard Printed Blouse from H&M: $12.99 Black Trouser Leggings from H&M: $9.99: This was one of my favorite buys from the spring. The reptile printed blouse is fun and quirky. The pastel and neutral colors also gave the look a more spring vibe.

Here’s the full outfit.

Forever 21 Blue Dress:$12.99 Khaki Jacket by Love Tree: $19.99 Forever 21 Necklace: $8.99:  The khaki jacket is great because it pairs well with dresses and skirts. The dress is also cute enough to wear both formally and casually.

Studded Collared Blouse by Mine: $14.99: For a more professional occasion, I wore my hair in a high ponytail to showcase the studding on this blouse.

H&M Cardigan: $11.99 Forever 21 Necklace: $3.99: For a more preppy look, I wore this beige cardigan with white piping on the neckline and down the buttons.

Rue 21 Pink Tank Top: $5.00: This was just a light airy top that I found in the clearance rack of Rue 21.

 

 

New Year’s Eve Outfits Under $50

I love seeing all the glamour and glitter of New Year’s Eve outfits, so I decided to share some steals from Forever 21 and H&M. There is a LOT of black, but I think black and sparkle are key when choosing a fun outfit to go out in. And for those who are staying in, I’ll do a separate post on what to wear when you’re staying in and lounging around, but still want to celebrate the occasion.

Forever 21– This is a classic New Year’s Eve dress. It’s shimmery and glamorous with its sparkle, but it’s still relaxed and easygoing with the shift fit of the dress.

H&M– For a more understated sparkle, this dress hugs the body more. It also has a more unique design with a scalloped hem.

Forever 21– This leather crop top is great whether you’re going to a party or spending the evening with friends. For a dressy look, pair it with a simple body con skirt or a wide legged pant like the photo above. For a more casual look, pair it with high-waisted jeans and a knitted cardigan.

Forever 21– I love that this criss-cross style is back. The deep V-neck is a great trend to try out with the drawstring weaved in because it’s a little more modest.

H&M– If you’re not into the sparkle, you can still make a bold statement with a pantsuit. This collared pantsuit is crisp and classic to ring in the new year. It’s perfect if your style is more on the preppier side.

hmprod (4)

H&M– Fur has become a huge trend this season. I love the idea of wearing this boxy fur top with sleek leather leggings.

H&M– This lace long sleeve is great if you’re spending the new year with family and friends. It’s also on sale, which is a plus.
