‘Til seams do us part

In spirit of Kimye’s wedding, this post will be all about the the two fashion icons that have the world under their spell. Ever since Kimye got together their fashion and style influence had hit the world by storm. Everyone was talking about what they’re wearing, who they’re wearings and who styled them.

Both their style’s are so simple yet so classy and sexy. They get away with wearing all neutral colours, like all the time. Whites, blacks, beige, pinks… you would think someone would need colour to stand out but no, Kimye can rock it. To stand out, they mix textures, patterns and materials to make their outfits POP!

Anyone can get style inspiration from these two, you don’t have to have 50 different things going on at once to make a statement, learn to be a minimalist and have one statement piece, or two. Wear those bright pink heels you have been waiting to wear, rock that chunky necklace that has been hanging off your jewellery stand for 2 weeks. There are so many ways you can make a statement without having to wear every single trend at once, or wear 5 different colours in your outfit.

TBT to the 80’s

Just dropping in for a little mid-week inspiration and throwback…

We all know trends come and go and lets be real, we wish a lot of them would just go, but some come back and are more popular then ever. So in honour of TBT (throwback Thursday) this post is all about the trends that came back for round 2 and seem like they are here to stay this season.

Here is my list of the top trends of the Spring/Summer season that came back from the 80’s:

  • high waisted shorts
  • crop tops
  • sneakers
  • ripped jeans (boyfriend jeans especially)
  • soft jogger pants
  • last but not least… jams shorts

Now I know you’re all probably wondering what ‘jams shorts’ are so here it is; they are mens shorts that are bright patterned and short on the thigh… for women’s wear they are very similar to the ‘jogger short’ that comes in a lot of patterns and bright colours.

High waisted shorts are basically all us females wear this summer, but they aren’t just coming in denim anymore, they are doing a collab with the printed and coloured jogger shorts. A match made in heaven if you ask me. I don’t think I need to explain crop tops because they are basically what makes the world go ’round these days. Crop tops go with shorts, jeans, leggings, skirts.. the list goes on… just make sure to keep it classy ladies!

Hammer pants vs Jogger pants…. it may seem like a war but the two sides are becoming one, hammer pants are becoming jogger pants and jogger pants are becoming hammer pants. Confusing? Slightly, but this style is perfect to wear since they are light and super stylish with any outfit.

Hoping this TBT can inspire you to wear some trends from ‘back in the day’ into your everyday style!

 

 

Looks like summer is here

Thats right, as the long weekend is coming to an end, the summer weather is coming to a beginning! Finally some warm weather to show off those summer outfits you have been waiting to wear for nearly 8 months. I feel like the warm weather allows us fashion lovers to show off everything and anything we got (to wear that is). Personally I love the warm weather because I don’t have to hide my outfits under big wool coats (cute ones, of course) or wear boots that won’t get ruined by the harsh salts and snow. I AM FREE!! Well, that’s basically what it feels like.

 

I am currently sitting in my backyard day dreaming about the outfits I will soon be able to wear… jumpsuits, short shorts, sandals, dresses… ahhh the freedom. I will be posting some pictures that are my inspiration for the warm weather so make sure you give them a like and comment 🙂

 

Still getting a hang of this ‘blogging’ idea so comment what you think and give suggestions please!
