Daydreaming in Denim

IMG_6834

Here’s one of my favorite pieces for spring. It’s a distressed jean jacket from Forever 21, and I wore it a lot last spring and summer. I like it even more now that it’s a been worn in. Hopefully you like this quick post! Comment below and tell me what trends you foresee for spring!

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.

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.
hmprod
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.
hmprod (3)
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.

#blueandblack

This dress craze is amazing.

http://www.buzzfeed.com/virginiahughes/why-are-people-seeing-different-colors-in-that-damn-dress

I think the dress is blue and black, but according to a Buzzfeed poll, 76% said the dress was white and gold. I’m not seeing it, so in honor of the controversy, I thought I would post some blue and black outfits in support for my 24%!

Pretty Little Fashion: 5×19

I love the outfits from this week’s episode of Pretty Little Liars, but it’s not helping that they’re wearing summery clothes during this cold February weather!

Thanks PLL Closet on Tumblr for always having the most updated looks for each episode! Check her website out below!

http://pllcloset.tumblr.com/

Nasty Gal ‘Dark Light Crop Tee’ – no longer available  Forever 21 Maxi Skirt- $19.80: I love how subtle the striped crop top is with the floral maxi skirt. I want summer to come so I can wear a look like this!
ASOS ‘Fluro Crop Top Embellished Skater Dress’ – $123.18: The color is really girly and I love the sparkle on this dress. It’s a refreshing, girly change from the usual edgy outfits Aria wears.
BCBGMAXAZRIA ‘Cadie Zippered-Ruffle Peplum Top’ in Fern – $178.00: The peplum shape and neckline looks great on Hanna. I loved the simple ruffle too. Hanna’s style is a lot more downplayed this season. I’m liking it!
Topshop ‘Button Front Strappy Cami’ – $30.00: This yellow colored tank top is super pretty and loose. The buttery color looks great against Emily’s skin, and the top looks easygoing despite how concerned she looks in the photo above.

Forever 21 Winter Finds

Forever 21 has always been one of my favorite stores to check out, but you can also shop at home! Online, the deals are still great and you can get them in your pajamas! Since it’s sweater weather, I’d figured I would give some fashion steals from the website! I found all of these under the sale category!

http://www.forever21.com/Product/Category.aspx?br=f21&category=sale_women

$39.99- This coat is perfect for any formal event, but you can also wear it with jeans and a scarf! Very versatile for the cold weather.
$16.99- This baggy turtleneck is great for curling up and watching Netflix. Wear the sweater with leggings and boots for going out.
$11.99- This mustard cropped sweater is chic on its own, but you can also wear it with a button down underneath for a preppy look.
$24.99- For a more formal event, you can still dress warm with this cream colored blazer. I love the shape and it can be paired with a nice blouse and dress pants, or a skirt. It can also be thrown over any dress.
$16.99- The sleeves definitely elevate the sweater into a more interesting piece. Still, it’s super cozy!
$19.99- This tribal printed sweater is a nice statement piece that can be worn with leggings and a simple tee.
