Monday Memos: 2014 Winter Lookbook

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to discuss our ‘2014 Winter Lookbook’. With Christmas and New Years Eve on the way, I thought that this was the perfect opportunity to start thinking about what cute outfit you want to wear in all of your holiday selfies. Usually in the lookbooks, we show casual, girly, and edgy looks, but this time I thought it would be fun to switch things up and style trendy, grungy, and preppy looks. Remember that you can mix and match the various looks, add accessories, or make various other changes depending on your personal style, and what the weather is like where you are. So let’s jump into it!

 

 

Trendy Look:

 

Trendy Look Faux Fur Jacket H&M

 

 

 

 

 

  • White faux fur jacket from H&M:

I love this jacket for a trendy look, because it’s warm, comfortable, and instantly adds a touch of class to every outfit. This jacket is perfect for any holiday party, and isn’t real fur, so it’s animal friendly.

 

Open Back Maxi Dress Pac Sun Kendall and Kylie Collection Trendy Look

 

  •  Black open back maxi dress from the Kendall and Kylie Collection at Pac Sun:

Crop tops were HUGE this year, so this dress is an easy way to take the trend and transition it into the winter season. The slit in the front adds a flirty touch to the dress (perfect to lure in a midnight kiss from that special someone on New Year’s Eve).

 

Black and White colored blocked ankle strap pumps from Forever 21

 

 

 

 

 

  • Black and White colored blocked ankle strap pumps from Forever 21:

Adding the color block trend always gives an extra touch of coolness to any outfit, so these shoes are the perfect thing to easily color-coordinate your outfit without simply adding a solid colored shoe.

 

Rhinestone Bib Necklace Forever 21 Trendy Look

 

  • Rhinestone Bib Necklace from Forever 21:

I love this chunky necklace because it’s an easy way to add a cute accessory to your outfit without having to try to hard (gotta love easy fashion!).

 

 

madison evening belles ambrose Trendy Look

 

 

 

 

 

  • Madison Evening Belles Ambrose clutch from Kate Spade:

No trendy look would be complete without a cute clutch, and with the cool jewels on this one, you will feel like you’re carrying stars with you wherever you go.

 

 

 

Grunge Look:

Grungy Look Fishnet-Paneled Textured Top

 

  • Fishnet-Paneled Textured Top from Forever 21:

This top is perfect if you want to try out the crop top trend that was really popular all year. The partially concealed cutout in the front of the top really gives it a touch of edge, which makes it perfect for any event you have scheduled this holiday season.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Gypsy Warrior Super High Rise Lace Up Skinniest Jeans from Pac Sun:

I really liked these jeans because the lace up front is an interesting touch, and will definitely add a little more style to this or any other crop top you want to pair it with.

 

Grungy Look Vintage Wash Denim Jacket Wetseal

  • Vintage Wash Denim Jacket from Wet Seal:

Who doesn’t love a jean jacket right? This is the perfect piece to give the outfit a 90s grunge feel, and the best part is you can turn the jacket into a DIY project by drawing on it, adding cool embellishments, or ripping it.

 

Grungy Look STEVEMADDEN-BOOTIES_PAYYTON_BLACK-SUEDE

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Payyton black suede booties from Steve Madden:

This boot has a smallish heel which is perfect for anyone who is hated by all heels (like me), and the fringe adds a very 1970s vintage edge to the look. This boot is also versatile enough to pair with a lot of other outfits so it’s a good staple piece to have.

 

Ecote Embellished Small Shoulder Bag Grungy Look

  • Ecote Embellished Small Shoulder Bag from Urban Outfitters:

This cross-body bag has a lot of very cool golden colored jewels all around it, that go along perfectly with the vintage grunge vibe this outfit has. It’s also small enough to carry with you anywhere, but big enough to hold all your essentials (I mean how could we survive without Instagram and Twitter?).

 

Whatever Statement Beanie Wet Seal

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Statement beanie from Wet Seal:

This beanie adds a fun laid-back vibe to the outfit that is perfect if your hair isn’t cooperating.

 

 

Preppy Look:

Contrast Collar Plaid Shift Dress Forever 21 Preppy Look

  • Contrast Collar Plaid Shift Dress from Forever 21:

Flannels were really in during the fall, so this dress is an easy way to transition this style into the winter season.

 

Brocade Tights Aeropostale Bethany Mota Collection Preppy Look

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Black Brocade Tights from the Bethany Mota Collection at Aéropostale:

These tights are the perfect way to keep you warm this winter season, and the light rose pattern they have on them add a really cute touch to the outfit.

 

Marled Tweed Bomber Jacket Forever 21 Preppy Look

 

  • White and Black Marled Tweed Bomber Jacket from Forever 21:

This jacket is the perfect way to warm up this look, and not compete with the pattern of the plaid. It’s another item that is versatile, so it can become a stale piece in your wardrobe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Slipified Flat from Kenneth Cole Reaction:

I love this flat because it has the color locking of an oxford shoe, but the versatility of a flat (you gotta love items that you can use in various style combinations).

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!!!

‘Monday Memos’: Neon Trend…a subtle way to be LOUD this spring/summer season!!!

Hello people of the internet! On today’s ’Monday Memos’, we are going to discuss the latest trend that you will see EVERYWHERE this spring/summer. What trend is this you ask? I’m glad you asked!?! Drumroll please…Neon!!! Yes I’m beginning to see lots of stores stocking up on this 80s favorite, and I love it! Neon is the perfect hue to shake off the dreariness of winter, and welcome color back into your wardrobe. Any shade of neon also allows you to add a special flair to an outfit without much effort (perfect “lazy day’ outfit!). As if this wasn’t enough reason to give this trend a try, neon is also going to be hot this spring and summer, so by embracing this trend, you can be stylist and thrifty (which leaves you more money for Starbucks! Hello cotton candy frappuccinos!!!). If you’re not sure how to style this trend, or you’re not sure if this is the trend for you, then I have some options for you. Whether your style is dressy, casual, or anything in between, I have you covered. Ready!?! Let’s go!!!

 

Dressy Look:

  • Neon Pink Babydoll Dress from Forever 21: This neon pink Babydoll dress is the perfect centerpiece for this dressy look. The bright hue is perfect for the spring or summer, and the dress is classy enough for a family get together, or a late night dinner with friends.

  • White Wedges with Neon Pink Trim and Bottom from Christian Louboutin: I am so in love with these wedges because they provide a good amount of height, but also have enough support so you won’t trip and fall up a flight of stairs (yes it’s possible, I’ve done it…don’t judge me!). The white on the wedges, perfectly complements the Babydoll dress, but the shoes are given an extra edge with the neon trim.

  • Pink and White Bead Necklace with Pink Rose from etsy.com: This neon pink and white necklace continues the neon trend, without distracting from the dress. The neon pink rose adds an extra girly touch, and is perfect for spring.

  • Vine of Roses Headwrap from Claire’s: I personally love flower headwraps during the spring season, and this one from Claire’s just looks perfect with this outfit. It continues the pink color scheme, but because the hue of this piece’s roses is a baby pink, it softens the presence of the outfit. This piece also gives you the freedom to wear your hair in a simple braid/in an updo/straightened/or in romantic curls or waves.

  • Neon Pink Studded Bag from Steve Madden: This bag is the perfect finishing touch to this pink neon look. However, a little edge is added to this outfit due to the fact that the bag has neon pink studs on it. This small addition of edge helps keep the outfit from looking overly sweet, and gives off a very “cool” vibe.

  • Possible Makeup Look: A makeup look that would be really complementary to this look would be a Ombré lip, with a dark red or pink bleeding into a neon pink hue in the center of the lips (just try this look out before you wear it in public). Since Ombré lips are also hot this spring/summer, adding one with a neon center is the perfect way to try both trends.

Casual Look:

  • Neon Yellow High-Low Shirt with Anchor Print Design from Walmart: I really love this neon yellow high-low shirt, because it is comfortable, but it is also lightweight which makes it perfect for those hot spring/summer days.

  • Yellow Daisy Leggings from Wet Seal: I really like these leggings because the daisies add a very spring/summer feel to the outfit, and the leggings provide more coverage than shorts (so you don’t have to worry about whether or not your shorts are too short and thus inappropriate at certain places), but they are lighter than jeans (so you’re legs won’t feel as if they’re on fire).

  • White Combat Boots from Dr. Martens: I really love these white Dr. Martens, because they are very neutral so they don’t distract from the rest of the outfit, but they add a very unique flair to the overall look.

  • Neon Yellow Melting Chanel Logo Earrings from Chanel: These earrings are definitely my favorite piece in this look. The melting design that they have gives this outfit a very edgy touch, and allows the person wearing this look to wear their hair in a simple braid or updo.

  • Neon Yellow Mini M.A.C. Bag by Rebecca Minkoff: These mini is the perfect finishing touch for this outfit because it stands outs, and it also allows you to carry all of your essentials, without having to lug around a huge bag.

Look for Someone who is Experimenting with the Neon Trend:

  • LA Hearts Double V Romper from PacSun: I really like this floral romper, because floral is a very safe pattern to wear for the spring/summer season, which makes it perfect for someone who does not like or know how to experiment with fashion. This romper also provides the perfect base for someone who wants to add small neon pieces, and try out the trend.

  • Neon Orange Skinny Belt from outragefashion.com: I thought that this skinny belt was the perfect accessory to add just a little touch of neon to this outfit. The belt is also very flattering, because it emphasizes the waist, and causes this outfit from looking to boxy.

  • Neon Orange Sunglasses from overstock.com: Now, although these glasses do not have to be worn with the belt to work, I think that they definitely look great with the belt added as well. However, if you decided against wearing the belt with these sunglasses, then the glasses alone will add that pop of neon you need to try out this trend.

  • Small White Cross Body Bag from Michael Kors: During the spring/summer seasons, I really love small bags, because you are often attending parties, BBQs, and other events with family and friends, so small bags provide you with a storage place for your essentials, without you having to commit to the heaviness of a large bag. This Michael Kors bag is all white with a gold chain, which makes it very neutral, and will not distract from the belt and/or sunglasses.

  • All Black Sneakers from Converse: I love these converse sneakers as the finishing piece for this outfit, because they are non-distracting, and still give off the semi-casual vibe that a romper gives off. These shoes are also extremely comfortable, making them the perfect daytime or nighttime shoes.

  • Neon Yellow Two Piece Bikini from Walmart: This hue will definitely get you noticed at the pool/beach this season! This bikini is perfect for the girl who loves to stand out, and be fashionable while doing it.

 

  • Neon Pink One Piece Swimsuit from Walmart: What I really love about this neon pink one piece, is that it is perfect for anyone who wants to try out this trend, but does not want something quite as vibrant as the first bikini. This suit also has side cut outs, so you can get the mature feel of a two-piece, while still having the security of a one-piece.

  • Multi-Colored ‘PINK ‘ by Victoria’s Secret Flip Flops from Victoria’s Secret: I think that these flip flops give off a very urban vibe, and would look best with the neon yellow bikini. Although these shoes are very unique, the colors are not neon, which will stop them from competing with the swimsuit.

  • Neon Pink Flip Flops from ‘PINK’ by Victoria’s Secret: I really like these flip flops with the neon pink one-piece swimsuit, because the shoes make the suit stand out a bit more without being over the top.

  • Neon Yellow Tote Bag and Neon Pink Tote Bag by Juicy Couture: For the beach, or hanging out by a pool, I really like large tote bags because they are both fashionable and functional. They are large enough for you to back sunscreen, water, food, a towel, your phone, or any other necessities that you need to spend a blissful day in the sun. I really like how vibrant these totes are, because they add an extra touch to the outfit, without looking like you’re trying too hard.

  • Black and White Floppy Straw Hat from ASOS: Lastly, I love this hat, because the neutral black and white colors complement the outfits, without competing with them. This hat is also very chic, but also large enough to provide you with coverage from the sun (because let’s face it, premature aging is never fashionable).
