You might have guessed the title had something to do with Colors of the Wind from Pocahontas (which is my favorite movie) and it has a significance. You see we are always caught up with trends, who wore it best, who has the best style, … yadi yada, but the true meaning I find in fashion is the colorful life you can have by playing with different vibrant textiles.
This particular set blew my socks off when I was shopping at Target. It instantly gave me that life I needed inside me. It not only goes well together, but it makes you feel at your best by wearing it. Forget fashion, I want to be wearing what makes me feel me again and again. Don’t you?
When I was young (age 9-15) I went through that “tom girl” stage. I disliked getting ready. It was such a tedious thing for me to even think of, and sometimes I still feel it when it comes to doing my hair (I’m slowly getting better at it though). Those were the days of pure fun.
Sneakers were my go-to accessory. I seriously lived in vans and converse. Now that Im a mom, I still feel that tom girl inside. It literally screams inside of me when I plan on wearing heels….it obviously wants me to wear sneakers, so my instinct says why not?
So, here I created a look that not only is fashionable, but I can honestly say I would wear it out.
Culottes have this je ne sais quoi feel to them. I cannot explain how many times they have saved me from not knowing what to wear to pairing them with such a stylish top, thus equaling to a super chic stylish outfit. They are literally life savers (in my fashion world of course). These cute ones I was able to find at Forever 21 for such an amazing low price!
No matter how often I decide to wear them, they are the only piece of clothing I have no problem repeating. It makes me feel like if I am rocking any type of shoes or top whenever I have them on. Although they are the best, I think I need more in different colors. A girl can never have too many culottes, right? 🙂
While it may be true that a true human can exist, it does not mean that most can do it. This dress reminded me of the importance of all human beings. No one is perfect and we all have two sides.
Our two sides obviously reflect the good and dark side of our nature. I don’t know about you but I personally am sick and tired of being criticized. We all are different and it is okay to admit it and accept it. But one thing we must realize is that without our two sides, we would not be who we are (and we would also be in heaven) which means no PERFECT human beings are on this earth. So enjoy your two sides because that’s what makes YOU. All of course, with precaution. ☺️
Monday calls for a new wardrobe check. My closet has not been getting any updates recently so a girls gotta so what a girls gotta do lol. That means getting super creative, which is the beauty of fashion. Certain dresses that are not so lengthy are a big plus in my book because it means they can double as tank tops. And with the hot weather staying until September, finding ways to reuse my clothes is on my list. Adding high heels is the glam finishing touch.
We all have certain colors that we love and we also have colors that we want to avoid as much as possible. In my case, I am a big fan of red, green, and mint. I used to always stay away from really bright colors because I tanned so easily (and still do) that my colors were basically showing more than I was. And while being tanned can be a gorgeous gift, it can also be a burden.
I decided to put away that burden and turned it into a gift. The gift of flaunting my glowy bronzed skin. Which has let me be confident enough to wear bold bright colors, such as this bright orange fringe vest. Its my fav color at the moment. I plan on wearing bright pink next. lol jk , maybe not just yet.
Having social media is a blessing now days. I say its a blessing because we can get inspiration by watching someones youtube video, or in my case, instagram. Street style has always captured my attention, especially the pictures that involve crossing the street. I find it to be my obsession and since I am on instagram, I decided to give it a try for myself.
My attempt to take a stylish picture while crossing the street at the same time was a very interesting experience.
For starters: A) Don’t try this on your own
B) Make sure you have a great outfit on (I’m talking flowy dresses, or something flared)
C) HEELS HEELS HEELS (the key to a great street style photo)
D) Take it on a not so busy street- Safety first 😀
And lastly, believe you are street style!
I for sure almost fell twice, BUT i can say that its the most thrilling and spontaneous thing you can do! It gives you that confidence that makes you say “yeah I got this!”
