Afternoon fellow bloggers!

I’ve never been a hoodie kind of girl, but I recently fell in love with the comfy feeling of a simple black hoodie from Old Navy! Not only does it look nice, but it’s super comfy, which is essential for this fall weather!

I know this picture above may seem like a boring photo to be inspired by, but it still caught my eye. I’ve always loved how people wear hoodies and denim together. Having this photo reminded me to one day try it out myself!

I find it really funny now that you can buy jackets with the parts of a hoodie attached to it, but it’s not actually two separate pieces, but rather one whole piece. I like it, but it takes away the fun of putting the layers together yourself.

 

This simple black hoodie is from Old Navy for about $11.00. It’s actually very thin and light, so I can wear plenty of layers under it and it actually fits my figure nicely so it doesn’t make me look like I just rolled out of bed.

 

Pairing my new black hoodie with my denim-leather jacket from Forever 21 instantly became a combo that I am now thoroughly in love with!

9. The item at the top of your wish list

Ironically, I had a really hard time picking this because I’ve actually been acquiring the things that have been on my wish list for SO LONG.

I’m currently hunting for that perfect cuff for my cartilage. I find a cuff more attractive than just a typical diamond stud. Online at Etsy, you can find THE most amazing earrings, lobe, cartilage, chains and all!

My achieved wish list:

  • Brown jacket
  • Helloberry bracelets
  • High-low skirt
  • Maxi skirt
  • Infinity leopard scarf
  • Chain cuff earring
  • Denim-leather jacket

I love how simple and quick it can be to make one outfit work for several situations with super small tweaks! Sorry I couldn’t take better photos and degraded myself to cheesy bathroom photos! I always feel in a better mood when my hair is straightened. I was out with my volunteer team to meet our Korean delegation students, so I wore shorts, but I had to quickly run home and switch bottoms so it was work appropriate (curse my tall height!)

At least I got to embrace that full light, summer look~

  • White sequined tank top- Old Navy ($15.00)
  • Light brown cropped jacket- Jacob ($20.00?)
  • Shorts- Old Navy ($5.00)
  • Denim capris- Stitches ($12.00)

One quick change of pants to make sure I’m dressing appropriate for work:

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~

I never get tired of watching Selena Gomez’s music video “Hit the Lights“.

The vintage style, the way its filmed, the setting, the clothes, and the fact that it looks like a video where everyone is truly just having a good time.

The fashion & the vintage feel probably drew me in first when I saw this; its like a mix of the plaids from Blue Notes with the modern styles of American Eagle.

Ironically,  when I got too lazy to make more printscreens (watching a video trying to click pause at the right time is hard, or you end up with weird facial expressions), I tried googling the fashion and found I wasn’t the only blog post writing about this! How bout them apples!

http://thefunkyfashionista.blogspot.ca/2011/11/fashion-inspiration-selena-gomezs-hit.html

Whoever was the clothing designer for this video, did a FANTASTIC job! The splatted paint denim jacket with the sequined yellow top goes perfectly in this setting along with her bubble gum lipstick and loose waves.

Selena was wearing a white knee length lace skirt with this top in case you were wondering. The bangs and even the extensions just fit SO WELL its ridiculous. Hair styles can really pull an outfit together!

What I wouldn’t give to wear an outfit like that! The American style graphic shirt with the brown sleeveless jacket and the black tights works as a great combination! This is my personal favourite~

It was really hard to get a proper printscreen, but Selena is wearing a big silver statement necklace (check out the above blog link to see). The outfit is all about playing with textures; a chunky knitted sweater with either a sequined or feathered skirt really ties in with her necklace and has such cool tones as well.

The cast in the video also had such intricate and laid back styles, it was fun watching not just what they were wearing, but how it worked with their personality and what they were doing from breaking into dance to just having fun. You can see everything from the varsity styled jacket, printed button-up shirts, denim tops, hats to the many to none layers being worn.

My first OOTD ! ^_^ Today was a denim-casual kind of day. Looking out and seeing the sunshine screamed “LET’S WEAR A SKIRT AND ENJOY THIS WEATHER!”

  • Skirt- Sirens ($10.00)
  • Top- Old Navy ($17.00?)
  • Earrings- Urban Planet ($6.50)

I felt super refreshed after taking a walk with my friends after it rained. It’s such an amazing feeling, heck I was skipping and spinning in the sidewalk humming “Zip-Ah-Dee-Doh-Dah”.
