The Bachelorette’s Fashion Profiles

This week, we don’t get an episode of The Bachelorette, but instead, I thought I’d do a fun post about the past Bachelorette’s style. I love how distinct The Bachelorette’s styles have been. They each have their trademark. Here’s a guide to their style!

From left to right: Kaitlyn Bristowe, Ali Fedotowsky, Jojo Fletcher and Desiree Siegfried

If you like Kaitlyn’s style…

kaitlyn

I had a lot of fun making Kaitlyn’s profile. She has a youthful, fun-spirited style and it really shines through both on the show and through social media. I picked out a lot of casual sweaters and tees because she has a tomboy vibe. She does have a modern twist to her style though by wearing bomber jackets and leather jackets. For dresses, she’ll wear bodycon dresses and I thought the little button down tied to the waist added some edge.

 

If you like Ali’s style…..Ali

Ali’s style is very girl next door. I gave her some brighter pieces because I constantly see her wearing colors and prints on her Instagram. I also added some bobo pieces with the fringe and tassels. Mostly, I wanted to focus on color for Ali’s style. She used to have a very simple style, but it had definitely transformed into a more girly vibe.

If you like Desiree’s style….

I love that Desiree has a much different style than past leading ladies. The mom-to-be has a sweeter style and I notice she wears a lot of lace and fit and flares when it comes to dresses. I also added some edgier pieces like a leather jacket because she does balance out romantic pieces.

If you like Andi’s style….

Andi had a very classic feel to her pieces when she was The Bachelorette. I gave her a more modern blazer with the cut and color. I also gave some preppy prints such as gingham and polka dots. She also had a very casual style so I added some simple black jeans and the chambray dress.

Finally, if you like Jojo’s style….

Jojo has a very summery fun style. The long sleeved romper seemed very Jojo because she doesn’t shy away from color and her clothes are very whimsical. The clutches seemed very bold and fun too. I also did an off the shoulder dress and a strappy crop top because she does have a lot of hot trends in her wardrobe.

To make these collages, I was able to use Polyvore.com. It’s an awesome website and it’s free so I definitely recommend it!

I don’t claim to be some sort of expert on their styles, but I thought these were good representations of their fashion sense. I hope you enjoyed this post.

Summer Wishlist

The summer weather is slowly but surely getting warmer, so here is my summer wishlist for the summertime. I’m excited for some of these trends that I found on Pinterest.

White on white trend // white laser cut our jumper & sports bag Alexander Wang
Sheer Paneling– I been loving the sheer paneling trend. I think it’s fun because it gives a peek of skin with a modern, sleek feel to each piece. I really like the paneling that goes into sweaters like the one above. With a more conservative neckline and boxy feel, the paneling works here.
Netflix, Nachos, And Naps Muscle Tank | This ivory tank features "Netflix, nachos, and naps" graphic on the front. Tank has a super lightweight, soft, stretchy, semi-loose fit. So comfy and cute! Style this popular top with some skinny jeans and an oversized cardigan for a cute outfit. | Chapter24:
Graphic Tanks– I’ve been loving graphic tees with different sayings on it. I bought a few pullovers and tees like this, but I think the tanks are great for workouts or for lounging around.
Long Arrow Brass Pendant Necklace:
Long Necklaces– I’ve been wearing more flowy tops and dresses lately and my statement necklaces don’t always work for more whimsical looks. Long dainty necklaces are perfect for the summer. I  love this gold arrow one I found on Pinterest.
Off the shoulder top.:
Off the Shoulder Tops– I was hesitant about this look, but once I tried it on, I really loved the laidback vibe these shirts give. They’re great for the summertime and it’s definitely a new trend I’m a little more open-minded about.
Grey Patchwork Long Sleeve Casual Mini Dress
Sporty Dress– I love the baseball tee look, and when I saw this dress, I decided to add it. This dress would look cute and casual with converse sneakers.
Distressed High Waisted Shorts Vintage Denim Shorts | Jean Cut Off Shorts xs s m l xl xxl:
Distressed Shorts– I really love the high-waisted look for shorts. Instead of going with basic cutoffs, I opted for distressed shorts. 

Hope you liked my summer wishlist! 🙂

Style Icon: Shay Mitchell

I’m a huge Pretty Little Liars fan, and love Shay Mitchell’s girly style. It’s definitely a vast difference from her character Emily. She wears a lot of fun, flirty looks with sleek finishes. The first photo below is definitely my favorite! I love the loose braid with this lace look. The ten looks below are some of my favorite looks from her.

Spring Wish List

So I’ve decided to make a spring wishlist even though winter seems to linger (especially in Plattsburgh). I found a lot of inspiration on Pinterest, so I decided to share the trends that I think will be popular this season. Also, I left the link of each piece if you want to take a closer look! Hope you like this post and follow me or comment below!

I absolutely love this. /// Fringe Scallop Tee
Fringe Tops: I really love fringe and think it is going to be big during the spring. I bought a similar top to the above photo  the other day. It’s really boho and playful, which is definitely different from my preppy style, but spring will a time for experimenting with more loose fun pieces like this one. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/552605816753638030/
Crimson Tribal Exuma Pants
Tribal Printed Loose Pant: I also love jumpsuits and maxi dresses, but I’m starting to love these flared out pants. I think they’re really easygoing and still fashionable. I would wear these with a cropped white tank top and a long necklace. With the spring weather, I’d even wear a chunky cardigan or long sleeved crop top in case of chillier weather. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/460563499369168872/
blue ombre maxi skirt. This is why I like dresses! Bubble necklace too!!
Bright/ Printed Maxi Skirts: I started wearing maxi dresses for the first time last year and love them now. I have yet to try wearing a maxi skirt, but I think they look really pretty with tank tops and chunky cropped sweaters. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/551339179358254032/
Boho/Gypsy...Handknit Mint Fringe Crop Top
Crochet Tanks: Again, I don’t have too many boho styled clothing, but I’m really warming up to the idea around this upcoming spring. I love this fabric and think it’s going to be very popular. I also love the fringe here too! For spring, I’d wear this with jeans and flats. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/327285097897114897/
want these shorts!!
Off the Shoulder Tops and Laced Shorts: These tops are so pretty. I really love this one on Pinterest because it looks great with loose waves. I also think the top would be great for multiple occasions. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/353040058266075490/
21 Wave-Friendly Bikinis For A Wardrobe Malfunction-Free Summer #refinery29  http://www.refinery29.com/wave-friendly-bikinis#slide2
Sporty Color- Blocked Swimsuits: Not sure if I should have saved this for my summer wishlist, but now is a good time to start bathing suit shopping. I really like the sportier ones because they tend to incorporate color blocking. I also want a nice color like this light blue. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/119345458852120433/
black and blue floral kimono, white v-neck crop top, light-washed distressed high-waisted shorts, gold necklace
Printed Kimono: This is super pretty with both jeans and shorts. I also think these kimonos look great with strappy dresses. The floral print is pretty, but I also like the tribal and fringed ones too. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/142637513174465286/
I want good red pumps someday. These are contenders.
Pointed Heels: These Valentino studded shoes are gorgeous. I love these pointed heels. I think they’re very in fashion. I’m not entirely sure if I’m going to get a pointed heel or pointed flat yet. I think the flats are more practical and the heels are just pretty to wear. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/563864815821945410/
tiffany blue sheinside top, tory burch carnation red york tote / purse, pbteen monogram necklace, kendra scott magenta rayne necklace - from luckydayblog
Loose Blouses and Long Necklaces: A lot of these pieces have been for casual occasions, but these loose minimalist shirts are good for work and going out. A high-waist pant or shorts would also look good with this top.  I also love these long necklaces with an edgy accent. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/313774299014060775/

Valentine’s Day: Clothing Deals and Steals!

For the lovely ladies who have a Valentine this year, here are some deals I found online! Check out Topshop, ASOS, Forever 21 and H&M’s websites for more clothing! Also, I’ll be doing an accessory post for Valentine’s Day too sometime soon!

Image 1 of AX Paris Crochet Shift Dress
ASOS AX Paris Crochet Shift Dress- $41.11: This dress screams Valentine’s Day and I love the ease of shift dresses! I love a lace dress but it’s hard to find a quality one! This one is definitely worth it!
H&M Fitted Jacket- $24.95: I love the shape of this jacket. I really like the pictured look with the blush shirt and leather pant. A high-waisted pant looks best with this shape! The leather gives an edge to the look while a pink/ blush color softens up the look.
Image 1 of Vero Moda Long Sleeve Shirt Dress
ASOS Vero Moda Long Sleeve Shirt Dress- $37.37: I love the idea of wearing a black dress for Valentine’s Day and then adding a splash of color with pink heels or a red statement necklace!
Forever 21 Quilted Faux Leather Skirt- $24.80: I adore a quilted skirt especially this one! A white button down and red tights would be super cute with this skirt.
Forever 21 Layered Boxy V-neck Tank- $17.90: Who says you have to wear red or pink? I think this lavender color is equally romantic and cute for Valentine’s Day.
Topshop Elastic Cut-Out Bodycon Dress- $40.00: I think a crisp white dress with simple red heels is great for Valentine’s Day! I love that the dress is simple and chic with a tiny cut-out! A statement necklace or cuff bracelet would also work with this look!
H&M Patterned Organza Dress- $24.95: This light blush colored, polka dotted dress is super girly and modest! Wear with black tights and black ankle boots for the cold weather!
Forever 21 Pleated Woven Joggers-$14.90 : For the people going on first dates, I think these pants are great because they aren’t too casual and they aren’t too dressy. A crop top looks great with these pants along with heels or boots.

Hope you liked the pieces I picked out! Comment below if you want a certain look or fashion trend to rock on Valentine’s Day!

http://pllcloset.tumblr.com/tagged/5×17

G-Star RAW Avity Radar Suit in Athracite- $125.00- I love jumpsuits and thought this one was super cute. Spencer definitely “prepped” it up with a collared button down underneath and cute little boots.
BaubleBar x Antropologie Seastone Necklace in Coral- no longer available- Unfortunately this statement necklace isn’t available anymore! However, I love statement necklaces and thought this one suited Aria well. The colors are an interesting combination too!
Black NYC Mixed Media Color- Blocked Hooded Jacket in Boregasm- $74.77 – Emily wears the most jackets and hoodies out of the PLL girls! I love how sporty they are with just a touch of edge with leather and color blocking.

Make a Statement! ILY Couture

These are some of my favorite statement necklaces! What I love most about statement necklaces is how versatile they are throughout the year. During the warmer seasons, it’s fun to wear them with dresses and tank tops. During the winter time, it’s so hard to wear them when all you want to wear are warm hoodies and sweatpants. So here are the many ways to make a statement for the new year!

1) Wear them with sweaters- The best neckline to wear them with are the crew necklined sweaters or a jewel neckline. These necklines allow the necklace to be displayed. You definitely want to show it off so pair a brightly colored necklace with neutral sweaters.

2) Turtlenecks- Turtlenecks are back in fashion! I love a black fitted turtleneck with a statement necklace. I think it’s super sleek and adds a sophistication to the everyday outfit.

3) Classic Tank/Tee and Cardigan- Sporting these necklaces with a tank top and cardigan is a more casual look. If you’re going to wear a statement necklace with a v-neck, make sure your necklace doesn’t overlap your tank top or tee.

4) Button downs- For a more dressed up look, you can never go wrong with statement necklaces around the collar of a button down. If you’re going to do this, I recommend buttoning it all the way to the top for a crisp look. Also if you’re looking for a warmer alternative, try wearing a jumper over your button down and then pairing the necklace with your outfit. 

Also please follow ILY Couture on instagram! They have the most amazing selection of statement necklaces. You can also check out their website below!
