Monday Memos: Fall 2015 Lookbook

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are jumping into fall fashion. This week is the official kickoff for the fall season, so that means that it’s time to bring back all of those fall clothes that we wait all year to wear. This time around I decided to make three categories for the looks. The categories are a girly look, a casual look, and a mixed bag look (which is a combination of the previous two looks with a few other style thrown in). Some of the looks have staple pieces that you can reuse so that means you save money and can buy more clothes (yay!!!). Please let me know what you think, and if I miss any awesome pieces then let me know in the comments below. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

Girly Look:

Girly Look Tokyo Darling Sheer Oversized Dolman Sweater from aeropostale

Tokyo Darling Sheer Oversized Dolman Sweater from Aeropostale:

Now I know in a lot of places it may till be too hot to wear a sweater, but this sweater is sheer so it’s more lightweight, and it’s easy to transition into winter so I think it’s a good investment piece. Also, the color is a little more lively then the typical fall colors that we see, but it’s not a bright hue so it feels like a fall color.

Girly Look Patterned Stripe Cotton Skater Skirt from Charlotte RussePatterned Stripe Cotton Skater Skirt from Charlotte Russe:

One of the great things about fall is that it can start to get a little cold, but it’s still warm enough to wear summer/spring pieces. It can be a lot of fun to play with accessories and transition these pieces into looks you can wear in the fall. I like this skirt because it’s an easy color and pattern to accessories because it’s not to bright or busy.

Girly Look Polka Dot Bow Over-The-Knee Socks by Bethany Mota from AeropostalePolka Dot Bow Over-The-Knee Socks by Bethany Mota from Aeropostale:

Speaking of accessories, I absolutely fell in love with these socks because their comfy, warm, and the little bow on the top is too adorable for words. These socks are perfect to warm up any skirt or dress, and definitely make you feel like fall is in the air.

Girly Look Tall Lace-Up Combat Boots from Wet Seal

Tall Lace-Up Combat Boots from Wet Seal:

Ok now we al know that fall is the time where we bring back some of our favorite thing like: Pumpkin Spice Lattes, holidays were we eat way more food than we’ll admit, and tall combat boots! These boots are not only cute, but they will warm up any dress/skirt, and are in a color that I neutral enough, that you can practically wear it with anything.

Chain Event Crossbody Bag from Wet Seal:

I really like this bag because it’s very simple but not boring. White is a great color to add a little something special to any outfit. A crossbody is a really great way to go with a bag, because you don’t have to worry about the bag bothering you as you walk or go through your day so you gotta love accessorizes that cooperate with us.

 

 

Casual Look:

Casual Look Live Your Life Graphic Tee from American EagleLive Your Life Graphic Tee from American Eagle:

If you want to look cute but not have to actually try, then a statement tee is perfect because the catchy saying on the shirt can serve as its’ own accessory. Personally I love long sleeved tees for the fall because if it’s hot you can roll your sleeves up to cool down, and if it’s cold then you can leave your sleeves down to warm up (it’s a win for everyone).

 Refuge Hi-Waist Super Skinny Colored Jeans from Charlotte Russe:

Casual Look Refuge Hi-Waist Super Skinny Colored Jeans from Charlotte Russe                               Ok let’s admit it, skinny jeans are a fall staple, and the perfect way to wear jeans that are comfortable (at least as comfortable as you can be in skinny jeans) while still looking like you didn’t grab the first thing you saw in your closet. I am so in love with these wine colored jeans because the color is beautiful for fall, and colored skinny jeans always add some extra flair to an outfit.

Casual Look Tribal Print Tassel Tote Bag from Forever 21

Tribal Print Tassel Tote Bag from Forever 21

Ok now I know that tribal print is usually more of a summer thing, but it’s a piece that most people probably already own, and a bag like this should go with a lot of different looks so it’s easy to accessorize. Bonus points, totes can usually carry a lot of stuff, so if you’re always on the go then you can carry all of life’s necessities with you (yesssss!).

Knit Cuff Faux Leather Combat Boots from Wet Seal: 

Casual Look Knit Cuff Faux Leather Combat Boots from Wet Seal                             Ok now I will admit that I’m really obsessed with boots so that’s why there are so many in this lookbook. Now it might still be a little to warm to wear these in a lot of places, but there will be perfect later in the fall/winter season so they’re a good investment (and the faux fur inside means that they will feel AMAZING on your feet!

 

Mixed Bag Look:

Mixed Bag Look Tokyo Darling Long Sleeve Checkered Woven Tunic from AeropostaleTokyo Darling Long Sleeve Checkered Woven Tunic from Aeropostale:

With this look, I wanted to find pieces that you could use in multiple ways and a plaid shirt is perfect for that. You can dress it up for a more preppy or girly look, or you can dress it down for a grunge inspired look. This type of shirt can also be used all year so it can easily become a staple piece.

Mixed Bag Look Refuge Boyfriend Splattered & Destroyed Jeans from Charlotte RusseRefuge Boyfriend Splattered & Destroyed Jeans from Charlotte Russe:

Another staple piece that EVERYONE has are ripped jeans. This isn’t a piece that you can really dress up, but you can either use them to go for a super grunge look, or a more casual look which lets your jeans take center stage without you having to really try. I really like these particular jeans because the splatter on the denim makes the jeans look really cool (just a little side note).

Mixed Bag Look Faux Suede Lace-Up Booties from Wet Seal

Faux Suede Lace-Up Booties from Wet Seal:

I know I know, none of you are surprised that there are more boots in this lookbook but in my defense…boots are really cute (yeah I know it’s not a great defense). What I like about these particular boots is that they can be used all year long, and they are an easy way to dress up any outfit. Whether you’re wearing a dress or a t-shirt and jeans, these boots ill work their magic.

Oversized Studded Tote Bag from Charlotte Russe:

Now this is a pretty standard type of bag, the color is very neutral so it can be your go to bag, and you can keep everything you need in it. I love the studs because they add just a little edge to a casual outfit, without being to overpowering.

Monday Memos: 2015 Back To School Lookbook

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we’re talking all about back to school fashion. This time I decided to split the looks into 3 categories (preppy, casual, and uniform). I tried not to include any pieces that might violate most school dress codes, but you can always substitute any of the pieces for more weather appropriate choices depending on what your school allows (or if you’re in college and can pretty much wear whatever you want…but you’ll probably end up leaving in sweat pants or leggings…anyways, moving on now). I also didn’t include any skirts, dresses, or shorts because schools can be really picky on these pieces. So now let get to the part that you’re all waiting on, the clothes! Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

Preppy Look:

Preppy Look Self-Tie Bow Blouse from Forever 21

Self-Tie Bow Blouse from Forever 21:

I know that this piece is a little different than what are usually in these Lookbooks, but I just thought that it had a very cool prim and proper flair. Sorta like something Spencer from ‘Pretty Little Liars’ would wear.

 

 

 

Preppy Look Skinny Jeans from American Eagle

Skinny Jeans from American Eagle:

Skinny jeans really help add to this look and a bonus is that you can keep using these in the fall and winter so that means more money to buy other pieces (yay!).

 

 

 

 

Preppy Look Lace-Up Brogue Oxfords from Charlotte Russe

Lace-Up Brogue Oxfords from Charlotte Russe:

You just gotta love a good Oxford shoe, because it’s dressy but also comfortable so you can run from one side of the school to the other without worrying about breaking your ankles.

 

 

 

Preppy Look Big Mango Backpack from Amazon

Big Mango Backpack from Amazon:

 I just have to say that I LOVE this backpack. It’s perfectly dresses up any outfit, and is big enough to fit your books and even a computer. You gotta love a backpack that’s fashionable and functional!

 

Casual Look:

Casual Look Eyelash Lace-Trimmed Sweater Forever 21Eyelash Lace-Trimmed Sweater from Forever 21

Ok I know it’s probably still a little warm for a sweater, but this just looked so comfortable that I couldn’t resist adding it. The lace trim definitely dresses up the piece, and it goes great with so many different outfits that it will soon become one of your closet staples.

 

 

 

Casual Look Plaid Leggings from The Bethany Mota Collection by Aerpostale

Plaid Leggings from The Bethany Mota Collection by Aeropostale

Plaid is a great pattern to invest in because again you can use it in just about any season, so it saves money in the long run. Also, leggings are great on those days when you just don’t want to put any effort into you look, but don’t want anyone else to know that.

 

 

 

black easton boot

Easton Chunky Heel Combat Boots from Target:

Now what Back To School Lookbook would be complete without combat boots. You can use these boots for a casual look, edgy look, or anything in between. On another note, they’re also really comfy so this it’s a good alternative to sneakers, and combat boots are always in style.

 

 

Casual Look Hynes Eagle Backpack from Amazon

Hynes Eagle Backpack from Amazon:

Ok I have to say that I’m seriously OBESSED with this backpack, it’s just amazing! The Eiffel tower picture is really cool, and the bright colors really pop, so you will definitely get noticed in the hallways. The best thing about this backpack is it’s perfect for anyone who’s constantly on the go, because it will hold all your stuff without any fuss.

 

             Uniform Look:

Uniform Look White Short Sleeve Polo from American Eagle

White Short Sleeve Polo from American Eagle

I decided to add this category because it can really suck to have to wear uniforms, but just because you’re stuck wearing them doesn’t mean you still can’t look cute (on a side note accessories really help, just make sure you’re following your school’s dress code BEFORE you go shopping).

 

 

 

Uniform Look High Rise Jegging from H&M

High Rise Jegging from H&M:

Now I’m not 100% sure what the general dress code policy is on jeggings but they look like jeans so that should be ok…right? I would definitely recommend getting high waisted jeans if you can, because they’re perfect if you have to have your shirt tucked in, and high waisted anything is really hot right now so it’s a double win!

 

 

Uniform Look Converse All Star Hi Wonder Woman Sneaker from Journeys

Converse All Star Hi Wonder Woman Sneaker from Journeys:

Ok usually schools seem to be pretty relaxed when it come to sneakers, so this presents a really awesome opportunity to show off your individual style. On another note, if Wonder Woman isn’t your thing, this sneaker is also available with Superman and Batman prints so you’ll probably find something that you like.

 

 

Uniform Look Leaper Casual Canvas Backpack

Leaper Casual Canvas Backpack from Amazon:

I thought that this backpack will probably match most school uniforms, and it’s cute so your uniform won’t look so ordinary. Your backpack is another way to show off your individuality (unless you school requires clear backpacks), so if you’re forced to wear a uniform, this is definitely a good way to express your individuality.

Monday Memos: 2014 Fall Lookbook

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’, we are going to discuss everyone’s FAVORITE part of coming into a new season…NEW FASHION!!! Since today is officially the first day of fall (aka when you can officially start binging on pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks), I thought that this was the perfect opportunity to do a ‘fall fashions’ blog post. Now I know that weather conditions vary depending on where you live, so I’m going to try to show y’all outfits that will keep you toasty, but aren’t boiling hot (you can alter it depending on what the weather is like in your neighborhood). I also tried to make these outfits school/parent approved. Hope y’all enjoy!

 

Dressy Look:

Lace-Trimmed Open-Knit SweaterMatelassé Skater Skirt Forever 21American eagle buckled riding boots brownMichael Kors Jet Set Logo ToteAeropostale Brown Knee High Socks

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Lace Trimmed Open Knit Sweater from Forever 21: I really loved this sweater because it’s lightweight, but still has a very “fall time” feel to it. The lace trim is also very cute, and something that keeps this sweater in style, so you can continue to wear it through the winter.

 

  • ‘Matelassé’ Skater Skirt from Forever 21: I really like this skirt because it’s flowy, comfortable, and a way to incorporate our summer wardrobe into the fall season.

 

  • Buckled Riding Boots from American Eagle: Ok, once fall hits, I become completely obsessed with boots. I really love these riding boots because they give the outfit a very polished look, and provide a nice balance to the skater skirt, which will keep you nice and toasty.

 

  • Jet Set Logo Tote by Michael Kors : I love that this bag has a very classic look, and really adds sophistication to any look. A good bag is one of the most important accessories you can have, and this one gives off an “adult” vibe that is perfect for class or work.

 

  • Knee High Socks from Aéropostale: I really loved these knee-high socks because they add warmth to the outfit, but also help the style stay cute and sophisticated.

 

Edgy Look:

  • ‘Bart Simpson’ Chalkboard Tank from Wet Seal: Seriously who doesn’t love ‘The Simpson’?!? So why not be the coolest kid in school and show your that YOU are the biggest ‘Simpsons’ fangirl! If it’s too cold to wear a sleeveless shirt where you live, then you can add a simple black cardigan or jacket over the shirt so you don’t freeze.

 

  • Plaid and Floral Leggings from Forever 21: I like these leggings for the look because, they incorporate the plaid look that was popular this summer (and is going to continue in the fall). The leggings also have a light floral pattern on them, which adds an interesting flair to the outfit.

 

  • ‘Troopa’ Boots by Steve Madden: I like that these boots don’t have any embellishments, so they don’t clash with the leggings and tank. I definitely think that everyone should have a simple pair of boots like these, because you can pair them with a variety of outfits throughout the fall and winter seasons.

 

  • ‘Fancy Footwork Emanuelle’ Cross-Body Bag by Kate Spade: This bag is perfect for all of the music lovers out there! The keyboard design is very cool, and will definitely make your outfit stand out this year. I also like that the crossbody design makes this bag easy to wear during day to day activities, but will also give any outfit a stylish flair.

 

  • Stud Baseball Cap from Claire’s: I thought that this hat was the perfect finishing touch for this edgy look. The golden studs bring a nice complementary color to the leggings and tank, and add a cool edge to this outfit.

 

Casual Outfit:

  • ‘Clothes Before Bros’ sweater from Forever 21: Ok, can we just take a moment to discuss how awesome the wording on this sweater is! Now if you’re a fangirl of ‘One Tree Hill’ (I know you all are), then you’ll remember that ‘Clothes Before Bros’ was the name of Brooke’s clothing line on the show. Now I’m not 100% sure that that’s what this sweater was inspired by, but it’s still really cool. The sweater is also comfortable, light-weight, and something you can throw on when you’re running late, or just don’t feel like dressing up, but still want to look cute.

 

  • Heart Printed Leggings from Wet Seal: I liked these leggings because they’re covered with white hearts that add a girly vibe to this casual outfit without any extra effort needed. The leggings are also comfortable, and perfect for school, hanging out with friends, or a date with a pizza and Netflix (just remember, pizza and Netflix is the solution to all life’s problems).

 

  • White Sneakers from Converse: Ok, I know that there’s that rule about not wearing white after Labor Day, but rules were made to be broken right?!? Right. Personally I love wearing converse sneakers because they’re cute and casual, which makes them the perfect shoe for anyone who doesn’t want sore feet.

 

  • ‘Dover Street Saffiano Leather Bucket Bag’ from Kenneth Cole: As soon as I saw this bag, I fell in love with it because it’s easy to carry on all of your daily tasks, and it has enough room for you to take your entire life (aka your phone) anywhere you go. What’s really great about this bag is that it’s casual enough for school/work, but functional and fashionable enough for meetings and after school/work activities.

 

  • Mini Lace Bow Hair Clip Blue from Claire’s: Lastly, we have the perfect finishing touch for any casual look. If you’re running late or just don’t feel like putting any effort into your look, then you can put your hair into a ponytail or half-up half down look, and add this power clip as the perfect finishing touch. Don’t you love it when fashion is practical and cute!

 

While I hope y’all enjoyed the looks! Remember that if it’s colder where you live then you can always add a cardigan or jacket, and if it’s hotter, you can substitute shorts or tank tops/short sleeved shirts. Have a fun fall people of the internet!!!

YouTube Wednesday: Kenzie Elizabeth…the guru who will help you feel beautiful inside and out

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ blog, we are going to discuss an AMAZING beauty/fashion/lifestyle guru that you all need in your lives. Kenzie Elizabeth (aka PiperLanee, which is her YouTube channel’s name), is a 17 year old rising star who is quickly taking over YouTube. With a fun personality, interesting video, topics, a vast knowledge of a variety of subjects, and a loyal fan base (as of August 8th, 2014 she had 60,862 subscribers and 2,799,929 total channel views.  it is easy to predict that Kenzie is on her way to big things in the career of her choosing.

 

Kenzie uploaded her first YouTube video (a Fall Haul Fall Haul: Steve Madden, Cotton On, Forever 21 & American Eagle! – YouTube) on October 10th, 2012. I thought that the haul was a really cool first video, because it showed that Kenzie likes to explore various fashion styles, and is knowledgeable about fashion. I also liked that the haul included stores that most of her viewers would be able to shop at, which makes Kenzie much more relatable to her viewers. It was also really good that she was clear, and seemed relatively comfortable on screen, which definitely made me want to continue watching her videos. The next video that we are going to discuss, is Kenzie’s ‘First Day of School Hair, Makeup, and Outfit video’ (First Day of School: Hair, Makeup & Outfit | Collab with Beautybabe149 – YouTube), which was uploaded on August 12th, 2013. I chose this video because back to school season is upon us (sad face), so I thought that this video might help you choose your first day of school look. I thought that the makeup look was really cute for school, because it is simple to replicate, natural looking, but also makes you seem as if you put some effort into your appearance (which we all know can be hard to do on school days). I also really loved the hair look, because it was also simple (I like things to be as simple as possible in life), and you can wear this style in numerous ways depending on your outfit. Lastly, I liked the outfit Kenzie picked out because it was cute, trendy, and casual (so you will look like you didn’t try too hard, even though everyone does…oh you know you do!). This video was also a collaboration with Erica (Beautybabe149) who we talked about a few weeks ago (you can check out that blog post here YouTube Wednesday: Beautybabe149, the next YouTube beauty/fashion queen has arrived | celindareyesblog), and is the reason I found Kenzie’s channel, thanks Erica!

 

Next, we have Kenzie’s ‘Healthy Food’ video which was uploaded on May 1st, 2014 Healthy Food Unboxing + Feed the Hungry | LoveWithFood – YouTube. This video was interesting, because Kenzie discussed a food service that delivers a box of healthy food to your house for $10 a month, and the $10 goes towards giving 1 meal to a hungry child. I thought that it was very sweet that Kenzie promoted a service that allows her viewers to make a difference. The food that was featured in the box also looked really healthy and delicious, so I would suggest that everyone check out this service (link here: Love With Food). I really loved all of Kenzie’s videos, but the last video that we are going to discuss in this blog post is her ‘How To be Positive’ video which was uploaded on July 23rd, 2014 HOW TO BE POSITIVE FT. MOD SUN – YouTube. I thought that this video was really interesting, because positivity is a simple concept in theory, but it can be really difficult to actually do. Kenzie also spoke about a book by a musician named Mod Sun, which is an easy to read inspirational book, full of tips on how to live a life of positivity. Personally I love inspiration/self-help books, so I will definitely be checking this book out. I think that it’s really cool that Kenzie is able to use videos such as this one to show that she is a very knowledgeable, well rounded YouTuber, who has something on her channel for everyone.

 

Ok, I know what you’re thinking…and no I don’t know how you haven’t already stumbled upon this awesome channel (or if you have, how other people haven’t). But now that you have all seen Kenzie’s videos and think that we can all agree that there are big things on the horizon for her. It is really exciting when you become a fan of a YouTuber right when they are on the brink of greatness, and I definitely think that we are at this point. So please keep watching this video, because I have a feeling that she could definitely become a top YouTuber very soon!
