We FINALLY have some sunshine coming back to us, and all I can think is, “MAXI SKIRTS AND MAXI DRESSES!”

All I’ve been thinking about is a few essential maxi skirts and dresses I can wear this summer! My reasons?

  1. Maxi = better than pants!
  2. It’s less of a hassle and worry if it’s already full length vs. a medium-length skirt
  3. Maxi is a total new level of comfort that still lets you look put together
  4. It has a very feminine look while still being comfy
  5. A maxi dress is a piece that can be utilized in a million ways to make it look like a skirt, top or one piece

What are your thoughts on maxi pieces? (Short or tall, it’s worth a try!)

How gorgeous is black and sheer together?

There’s something both classic and timeless about the look of this combination because it can look dressed up or dressed down.

So far, I’ve got a brown maxi skirt (super comfy from sirens for ONLY $10!), a navy blue maxi dress (a more safe colour) with straps and a mint green (I figured colour would be good to try for the summer) from Forever 21.

Old Navy launched a special section a while back where some of the clothing was marked with tags that said “Studio Spotlight”. This meant that those pieces were from the line of clothes that the designers created! Below is what the tag looks like:

This piece that I purchased was the Old Navy Women’s one-button blazer. Here’s a link to what the whole blazer looks like:

The creator for this line including the blazer is Shanti Markstrom.

I love buying something that has more meaning than just being some article of clothing! The Studio Spotlight tag could be opened and had a paper in it with information about the creation of the blazer! It was the most adorable thing I had ever seen!

Also, I thought I would include the video about Shanti’s line that she created for you guys, it’s really cool:

I took some pictures of what the paper looked like, HAVE A LOOK!CSC_0965

I’m definitely hoping to stumble across some more Studio Spotlight pieces more often!~

13. Your lazy day at home with style (in front of your housemates/bf/visitor) outfit

I’m actually going to be home for a while, therefore this post is quite relevant as to how I will be dressing for this week in a nutshell.

 

Yes, this IS blurry, I know! But the one in focus looked … awkward. Don’t you love when you tie your hair in a bun and it just looks “perfect” to you? A few strands of hair will fall out, but frame your face really nice. However, this is when you are stuck at home and NOT going out -_-

 

I don’t own really baggy sweats or anything like that. I still enjoy wearing fitted clothes that are super comfy. If I have visitors, this is something you will most likely see me in … unless I have to make an effort and dress more decently.

I swear, is it just me, or when I’m feeling really lazy I resort to an all-black attire. Hmm, how interesting. Well, they DO say that black IS slimming.

10. Cute tights

Let’s switch tights for stockings because I don’t own any cute tights besides some plain black ones …

I love the design on these. These are the first stockings I ever bought for myself and they always make me feel fancy and dressed up because it has a intricate diamond style design on it~

7. A special occasion outfit.

This dress has only been worn once. I never have any place to really wear that “little fancy black dress” to. I bought this dress from Urban Behaviour for about $15 (they were having a massive closing sale). Hopefully I don’t get any taller so I CAN still wear this.

  • Hat- gift
  • Earrings- Ardene ($4.50)
  • Black tube top- Urban Planet ($5.00)
  • Sheer button-up- Old Navy ($30.00)
  • Black shorts- Urban Planet ($8.00)
Today was a pretty hot day, and boy was wearing a hat needed! It’s always fun to try new looks and that’s exactly what fashion presents .. as well as summer time and a lot of free time … Sheer tops are great when you don’t want to wear a top that you’ll just get hot in. On top of that, wearing a tube top provides enough coverage to still stay decent =)
