I was walking past the store Aeropostale and saw a HUGE poster of Chloe Moretz in front! I stopped and stared. Next thing I know, I was at home googling this up, and giving this girl a thumbs up! ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXsZH0EFKBk&feature=my_liked_videos&list=LLaEaViJt_-j09nLYEBYFiUQ )

The 15-year-old actress has just been named Aéropostale’s celebrity brand ambassador! What does this mean? That Moretz will star in a campaign for the brand, beginning with the 2012 back-to-school season.

Personally, Chloe is just this super adorable and young girl that knows how to have fun with fashion and she just makes anything work because of her outgoing personality. I really found this out through seeing her on the cover of Seventeen magazine and looking at her behind-the-scenes footage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJ42fYJqlv4

Chloe is what I would define as feminine, fun and chic. She knows how to stay comfy, but still have fun with what she wears.  Below are her promo photo’s with the captions labelled underneath. Check out the site: http://www.aeropostale.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=3534619

Breaking hearts-cool as can be in jeans & our moto jacket.

Leaps & Bounds- layers of texture topped with a bold hat.

Laid Back- casual as ever in our jeggings & tee layered with our fleece vest.

All Class- never missing a beat in animal denim print.

Colour Me This- lace leggings rock a classic mohair sweater.

The New Bohemian- our long patterned skirt & cardigan; mix it up boho chic.

What do you think of her? The bohemian and breaking hearts looks are my two personal favourites. I think for such a young girl, she can make it work representing this store~

Just like the infamous ”writer’s block”, I am experiencing “fashion’s block“. A little while back I purchased a polka dot cardigan that I’ve been eyeing. I love cardigan’s, so I figured instead of buying simple solid coloured ones, I would attempt buying a pattern.

This is your typical full sleeve button-up cardigan (Old Navy, $15)

I did NOT however, think it would be so hard to style! It’s because I don’t buy patterns that require layering, I find it a bit odd to wear.

Ideally, a cardigan can simply be worn with a tank top inside and that itself is a completed outfit. However, I want to kick it up a notch. The only question is how?

A challenge has presented itself to me! I have 90 days (that’s the return/exchange policy) to see if I can make outfits that I will love and if not, I’ll simply return it back to the store.

Just one set of layers is working with a cool colour palette. Now to push it further! Time for some fun, research and experimenting!

It’s called Old Navy Solider because I just realized that everything but my belt is from Old Navy! How ironic is that? =)

  • Shirt- Old Navy ($5.00) <–Clearance!
  • Shorts- Old navy ($5.00) <–Clearance!
  • Cardigan- Old Navy ($15.00)
  • Belt- Urban Planet ($2.50)
  • Flower studs- Forever21 ($3.80) <–Set of 3 studs

Please mind my very weird expression! I’m actually not sure if this outfit is really all that great, if it’s a hit & miss I can totally accept that. I was really happy to wear some silver-gold accessories cause I only wear silver sadly. Finally achieved loose beach wave curls!

I bought this cardigan, and I’m not used to bright bold colours, but I am DETERMINED to match outfits up with it! It’s amazing how much an outfit can change with one bold colour added! This outfit went from beachy to bold in 2 seconds!

Never be afraid to try something new, something a bit outside of your comfort zone!
