Spring Inspired Look

IMG_7113

I’ve been patiently waiting for spring and cannot wait for the weather to get nicer. I had a formal event on Saturday, so I wore this striped romper. I didn’t get a descent photo of the entire outfit, but I wanted to share my love for these types of sleeved rompers. I bought this one from Marshall’s on sale for $12.00, and it was such a steal.

I got this Roller Coster romper for $14.99 at Marshalls and I just really loved the fit. The way the front panels were sewn really flatters an hourglass figure, and the frills on the end add a very playful whimsical feel. The nude colored watch was from Rainbow and it was only $8.99 on sale. I love this one because it’s not too flashy to wear everyday.

July Favorites

I’m currently loving my new products for my July Favorites post, and I’m going to be sharing some of the beauty essentials that I’m using right now. Also, the lace romper I’m wearing in the photo above is by Romeo + Juliet Couture, and it was $22.00.

I’m going to be doing a lipstick review sometime soon, but if I had to recommend a lipstick right now it would be the NYX butter lipsticks. For my skin tone, I’m drawn to more darker berry colors, and this one was a nice dark cherry color. It is called moonlit night and was $5.99 at Target.FullSizeRender (3)

I really love Wet n Wild products because they’re decently priced and very good quality. I’ve gotten two of their palettes and first of all, I love that they’re labeled. I also love the colors I got because they’re great for during the day too. My only complaint is that the brushes are a bit too small, but I also have my own brushes that I use. The small palette was $1.99  and the bigger palette was $5.99 at Rite Aid.FullSizeRender (7)

I’ve been looking for quality eyeshadow brushes because I’ve been really into experimenting with different shades lately. So I found these brushes at Marshalls by a brand called Polish’d and the quality is perfect for blending because the brush is thick enough for the lid and crease. Again, the labeling is great for beginners too. These were $3.99, and I’ve been looking for more online but can’t find it.FullSizeRender (6)

This Full Action Extreme Effect Mascara from Sephora is really great and was $12. It’s a nice combination of volume  and thickness without being too clumpy. The pencil is from elf, which I really like because it has a great black liner, but it also has a smokey shadow, which I apply to my lower lid. It was only $3.00,and elf is another brand that’s cheap but still quality.

I put this in my June Favorites, but at the time, I just really liked the smell. But after using it for a while now, I love how long-lasting this body cream is. When it comes to beauty products, I’m all for cheap inexpensive products, but this $7.00 cream is worth it.FullSizeRender (1)

I usually use dry shampoo by other brands, but this is one that I just wanted to try out. Now, I really love this brand because the smell in ten times better than most dry shampoos and my hair just feels cleaner when I use this product. It was $1.99 for a travel size bottle from Walmart.FullSizeRender (10)

For heat protectant spray, I usually use Tresemme, and it’s a great product, but this heat protecting spray leaves my hair feeling more shiny, and surprisingly more light. FullSizeRender (9)

When it comes to makeup bags, I go through them so quickly because my brushes get messy and my powders get all over the inside of the bag, These Ashley Mary makeup bags are perfect because I can store my brushes in one zipper, and my makeup in another zipper. After having this makeup bag for a few weeks, I’m way more organized and don’t spend time trying to find everything when I go to do my makeup. This was on sale at Target for $5.99 and it comes in so many beautiful patterns and prints.

The Fosters Fashion: Callie’s Blouse

Here’s my review on the episode. I’ve been enjoying recapping the show and appreciate anyone who watches to check it out here: https://mytrendingstories.com/article/the-fosters-review-now-for-then/

So Callie wore this really cute top from The Fosters the other day, and I found the details on her Topshop blouse at WornOnTV. What I’m still searching for is Courtney’s romper that she wore from the episode.

For this outfit, I’m wearing a blue and white printed romper from Primark, which was only $4.00. For those of you who have heard of Primark but haven’t gone, I think it’s a must if you like shopping. I always heard about them from Youtubers like Tanya Burr and Zoella, but I see what the hype is about. I went to the Primark on Oxford Street in London, and it had some amazing deals. Hope you liked this quick little post. 🙂

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!

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….

desiree

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

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

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.

 

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.

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.

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.
