Quote of the Day

This is one of my favorite friendship quotes. Real friends are always there for you no matter what without any sort of judgement. They’re there to laugh with you, support you and simply be a shoulder to cry on.

Hope you enjoy this quick post.

Daydreaming in Denim

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

FullSizeRender (10)

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! 🙂

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.

Summer Profile: Kelorn Francis

Meet Kelorn Francis: My name is Kelorn Francis and I live in New York. I am and IT Analyst with a love for fashion, a passion for style and an obsession with shoes.
 When it comes to fashion, here’s my philosophy:

When it comes to fashion, there are trends that I will definitely wear but it has to work for me. Meaning that the fit and design have to work for my body type. You will not find me in every trend that is in season but you will find me in the ones that can depict my personality and reflect my personal style. Brands and price are not the objective for me. When I see a top or a pair of shoes, my mind starts going at how I can style that item. My philosophy on fashion is “it’s all about the shoes”. I do not care how much your outfit costs or what brand it is, if you are not wearing the right pair of shoes your look will be graded an F.

My favorite summer trend right now is…..

My favorite trends this summer if the peasant tops especially those that are off the shoulder. I love that they are sexy without being tight and fitted. It seems like these days that your clothes have to be skin for it for to referred to as sexy but these blouse ooze sexy with just the hint of your shoulder.
 When I’m in a rush, my go-to shoe is…..
When I am in a rush, my favorite go to shoes is a pair of red pumps. I have about 5 pairs in different style and shades of red but anyone can save the day. Besides being my favorite color, the pop of color adds life to your look and red heels always turn heads.

Most people tend to go with black when you have to grab and go but I go for color. I love love love wearing black but when I put some color on it lifts my mood and no one can tell that my outfit was put together in under 5 minutes.

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! 🙂

Summer Finds Based on Your Style

I decided to do a summer style guide because there are so many different styles worn in the summer. From boho prints to sheer skirts, there are several pieces people should get based on their style.

If your style is…… Chic

Sheer Pantsuit: It’s flowy, simple and makes a bold statement. For a chic, soft look, wear with a long necklace, heels or flats.

If your style is…..Edgy

Distressed and Studded Shorts: Both trends are edgy and perfect on a pair of cutoffs. It would pair well with graphic tees and a moto jacket.

If your style is…..Preppy

Printed Collared Shirt: This shirt is girly and perfect for the summer weather. It would look extra preppy with high-waisted shorts, a statement necklace around the collar, or oxfords. Add a blazer for chilly weather.

If your style is…..Minimalistic

Boxy Co-ords: Co-ords are also perfect for the summer. For a minimalist look, wear a solid, boxy mod style.

If your style is……Artsy

Patterned Midi Skirts: These midi skirts are in style now, and for an artsy feel, mix patterns and play with colors. I also like the brush stroke pattern.

If your style is……Flirty

Bright Maxi Skirts: Bright colors are great for maxi skirts. I love the sheer ones that have a lot of movement when you walk. It’ll certainly get attention.

If your style is…..Country

Fringe tops: Fringe in very in fashion, and I think it is worn in many different styles. However, if someone has a country feel, they should try a fringe top, bag or shoe.
