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.

Sorry about lack of posts! Until I actually wear decent outfits I’ll be posting my past week instagram outfit pictures (Instagram: briichan)! Bear with me!

I recently went to a wedding and picked up a red dress from Le Chateau, which is hard for me to do because I DIDN’T BUY THE BLACK ONE, OMG.

I realized my school outfit the next day really tied in with the same colours as my outfit for the wedding!~IMG_1918
This red top looks absolutely gorgeous. What I wouldn’t give to go into Urban Behavior and buy if right off the mannequin!IMG_1535

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!

Ah the art of tucking in tops; making every outfit a bit more prettier. The only reason I wore the belt is because sadly my pants just don’t fit me properly.

I’m in love with prints, wine red and browns for autumn! Bring on the fall!~

CONFESSION: For a really long time, I’ve always wished I could buy a knitted top, maybe off-white or maroon from H&M, and pair it with a gold sequined skirt from Forever21. I don’t know why, but I STILL want to wear it. Problem? WHERE would I wear that to?

 

I still need to stock up on my sweaters & LOVING H&M’s line for fall fashion 2012!

 

The Peter Pan collar trend is absolutely ADORABLE!

 

In LOVE with this skirt, but also THIS OUTFIT! So basic, yet well put together!

11. Your spring essential

The high-low skirts~

This trend and this article of clothing is just simply perfect for the spring weather because it’s suitable for the weather, and doesn’t show off too much skin either. How can you not love the styles that this trend is bringing? Whether it’s the low-high, the asymmetrical, the waterfall, or the full-length sheer skirts (they got these skirts falling down in all sorts of ways and directions, it’s nuts!) ect, this trend has versatility and comfort to it!

Plus, just having one of these skirts gives you the options to play around and recreate the other styles that are out there!

5. Your best bargain

This isn’t my BEST bargain of all times, but I wanted to pick something more recent. I have a tendency to get a lot of good bargains, so it was REALLY hard to remember which ones I had gotten good deals from.

Although my thrifting experience would be considered my “best bargain” because I got the clothes, some brand new, super cheap~

I chose this brown jacket. I’ve been craving one of these for YEARS! I now FINALLY have my own~

Typically, this jacket ranges from prices of $30.00-$45.00. How much did I get this baby for, which also includes A HOODIE that can COME OFF? ONLY $18.00 at the sale rack at Forever21 where their sale was “buy one get one free”.

Hey, good things come to those who wait! =)

Skirts seem to be constantly changing up their styles now. We’ve gone from a typical pencil skirt, to sheer maxi skirts, to high-low skirts.

Recently I came across this while surfing through the Forever21 site: the asymmetrical skirt (some call it “the waterfall skirt“)

Pretty right? Ironically, I was thinking “well, can’t you just twist a high-low skirt to the side and pretty much get the same effect?” I tried it out and I kinda like it! Plus, you can choose which side to have shorter or longer.

Might sound a bit weird, but you never know until you try~

So I did it! I made my very first purchase by myself, with my own money online! It’s ridiculous how excited I was! I was lucky it came literally within a few days.

Even though my blazer ($18.90) is too big, I should have gotten a small, I’m still really glad that I bought it. Why you may ask. It’s because I made a bold buy. I’ve been trying to find that perfect blazer for a long time! This feels great and I now know that I can buy a bold colour because I love it! (I love the style, fit, material, AND colour)

  • ALWAYS HAVE A BACK UP PLAN! IF they can’t return my blazer, I’m willing to see if it can be tailored!
  • YOU ARE ALWAYS AT A RISK. A risk of not trying something on before actually paying for it!
  • MAKE SURE TO KNOW THE RETURN AND EXCHANGE POLICY BEFOREHAND!
  • PICK DAYS TO SHOP ONLINE WHEN THE SHIPPING IS FREE!

If there’s one thing I’ve decided, it’s that I’ll stick more to buying accessories rather than clothes when I shop online in august on yesstyle!

I DO love my earrings! Super long and chic! They actually go past my collarbone! ($7.80)
