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.

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!

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 attempted to wear some colour today (or a lot?) and I like the outfit, but at the same time it’s something very new for me to try; what do you lovely bloggers’ think?

Thumbs UP or thumbs DOWN?

I’m actually not sure if this considers’ as colour blocking because I used such light shades?

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~

Just .. Do It Yourself~

If there’s one thing I love doing, it’s making use of anything in more than one way. This maxi skirt from Cleo is my favourite skirt to wear because it’s simple and elegant.

I was literally just playing around with feeling the fabric  and spinning, when I noticed something. By raising the skirt up and pulling it around the waistline, it looked just like a simple knee-length skirt. However, the best part was the back of it! By bringing it towards the back of the skirt, it created a really cool middle flowing tail! I know, that sounds really weird, but how many skirts have that? In my opinion, it looked kinda cool~

Fashion is all about statements. It’s about doing what other people aren’t, or just starting your own trends. The point is to be creative, inspired and playful because there’s no boundaries!

I took this yesterday because I realized I didn’t know what I was gunna wear. I’m actually wearing this tonight, but I’m so booked today I wanted to make sure I meet my goal of one post a day! Tonight is my girl Dj’s birthday dinner at Pickle Barrel, so she chose a formal dress code. I enjoy dressing up, but I’m still getting used to skirts.

  • Sleeveless grey cheetah top- Old Navy ($18)
  • Black skirt- Urban Behaviour ($5)

Happy Friday~

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”.
