Feeling Floral

dress- thrifted, homemade, shoes- Gap #teenvogue #floraldress

The hardest part about blogging is writing your feelings.  
Because clothes are feelings.  
When you wear heels, you feel taller.
When you wear a cute dress you feel pretty.
When you wear sweats, a hoodie, and sandals, you feel like you should be sitting outside Starbucks asking for money.
Clothes are all about how they make you feel.
I felt smashing.
..just saying..
Now to my main preach of the week, the number one staple of the season: 
1.  I love a short floral dress with a flared out skirt that defines my waist and makes my legs look longer.
2.  Floral dresses are always a go-to in my closet and an easy outfit to pull off.
3.  Try a floral dress with a denim jacket and combat boots for a punk look, 
or with ballet flats and a cardigan for a cute and preppy one.
4.  Or, for a dressier occasion, try pairing your go-to dress with fun statement wedges and a clutch.
5.  You can dress it down, or bling it up.
6.  Whatever you like!

Date Night! (In my overpriced imagination)

Date Night!

Brocade dress / Forever 21 ruching dress / Topshop t shirt / Miss Selfridge longsleeve shirt / French Connection pencil skirt / Charlotte Olympia suede pumps

Ever been stuck trying to figure out what to wear on date night?
Well, I mean, I haven't, but hey maybe you have.
You want to look classy but also have some guy appeal, right?
And who could forget comfort.
No one wants to spend their date sitting uncomfortably in a way-too-short-skirt and way-too-high-heels.
So instead of complaining about the difficulties of impressing guys and how much I wish I could slip into sweats and a frizzy ponytail and off I go, 
I'll talk about each number on my little diagram and give some advice on how to style each piece 

1.  Wearing a pencil skirt is basically saying that your confident in your body and don't mind showing it off, but wearing a long pencil skirt shows that your confident but not easy, which is a good thing. I think.  I've been rolling with it.. Style with a curve fitting top and a pair of stellar shoes.  Maybe add a chunky statement necklace if the shoes aren't enough.
2.  I cannot get over how cute this top is.  It looks almost sporty, but so mod.  Pair with sleek tailored pants and loafers.  Go very minimal on makeup.
3.  You'll feel radiant with your hair flowing over your shoulders onto the delicate lace of this long sleeved crop top.  Pair with a pencil skirt and some kind of daring shoe to add some pop to this pretty outfit.
4.  This pattern is so elegant.  Pair with short yellow kitten heels and put your hair up in a big bun if it's a day date, and for a night date leave your hair natural and pair with taller patterned heels that match.
5.  I think I'm actually going to buy this.. It would look so cute with red loafers or the shoes in number 6.. Hm.  
6.  You could pair these versatile heels with anything really, but an elegant match would be a masculine suit that still fits well.  They would especially look good next to anything black, so think elegant and modern with a twist of damn.

Feeling Crisp

shirt and pants- Urban Outfitters, shoes- Gap #teenvogue

I for one am happier than anyone that wearing pajamas outside of your house is now okay, 
because I've really been taking advantage of it.
I mean, every day this week I've worn fabulous pajama suits and felt like a million bucks.
 So happy with life lately.. 
Trying to decide which shoes to wear with the suit was a major conflict.
Blue, or pink/orange?
Well blue's just so matchy,
and pink/orange's so pop.
I try to go out of the box with my outfits, because who wants to go to school in predictable clothes?
I never colored inside the lines, and I'll never dress inside them either.
I figure,
if I wear neon pink shoes and pajamas to school,
then maybe that shy girl in my math class will think 
'Hm. Maybe I can wear my fancy heels to school.  I mean, no ones giving her a hard time for it, so maybe I can dress up tomorrow and I'll be happy like her.'
That's what it's all about.
Showing a little bit of confidence even if you feel a tad bit weird in what you're wearing,
to show someone else that they can be confident in whatever they wear too.
I want every girl in the world to glow with confidence when they walk out the door in the morning,
and feel absolutely fabulous every day.

NACHOS (and others)

I recently took a fabulous trip to San Fransisco, and thought it would be a nice change of pace to not do a clothing post this week. (Also because my photographer is who knows where) 
Although I couldn't afford to buy a single thing the whole day,
I still enjoyed viewing all the lovely dresses and testing out the lotions and eating LOTS and LOTS of nachos..
Have a lovely week, and I promise I'll post a clothing post as soon as I can!
Hang in there with me!
