Oh-So Natural | Spring Trends 2015


Outfits For Inspiration


If there's a color that shys away from spotlight while still looking chic, it's the color natural. The natural trend not only applies to make up, but also being to be a growing trend this year in fashion. "Natural" colors include any off-whites, such as nudes, creams, and beige. Naturals not only go with everything, but they are perfect for those who want to look stylish without making a huge statement.

Some are turned off by natural colors, since they find that it blends into their skin. However, there are several ways to style natural colored pieces without looking bland. Despite being an off-white color, natural colors look perfect against white as well as different shades of brown. Natural colors are also the perfect twist to popular white and since it is neutral, it can go with almost any color or statement piece.

Will you be wearing natural colors this season?

Get the Look: Serena Van Der Woodsen Makeup Look!

Even though Gossip Girl has been over for a couple years, the style of the characters brought still are relevant today. Not only did the show had an impact on fashion, but the makeup looks also created much inspiration as well. This post will feature Serena Van Der Woodsen's makeup look that she was often seen in throughout the series. Even though her makeup did change a little throughout the seasons, her look remained glowy and bronzed. This look would be great for school, since it's on the natural side, but also perfect for the spring and summer months!


Serena's makeup was very fresh and didn't look as if she caked on a lot of foundation. Start the face makeup with a BB Cream for a little bit of coverage. Next, if desired, add a litte more coverage with a Powder. The powder will not only add coverage, but also to set the BB cream. To help define the face, fill in your eyebrows with Eyebrow Powder if desired.

To get Serena's bronzed glow, start off with a Bronzer with some subtle shimmer, applying to the hollows of your cheeks, down your jawline, and on your temples, blending well. Next, apply a Peach-Pink Blush to the apples of your cheeks, blending the blush to the sides of your face. Finish the face makeup with an Illuminator, applying it to the tops of your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose, blending well.


Start off the eye makeup by a Light Peachy Champagne Eyeshadow all over the lid. Next, Serena, along with Blake Lively, was allows seen with a bright inner corner. To achieve this look, apply a Shimmery Light Highlighting Eyeshadow to the tear duct area, bringing it to the inner corner and inner waterline. For definition, apply Bronzer to the crease with a fluffy brush and blend well. Serena was has a subtle liner, so apply a Black Eyeshadow with an eyeliner brush to the upper lash line, making sure the line is thin. Also apply a little of the black eyeshadow to your bottom lash line for more definition. Finish the eye look with Black Mascara to your upper and lower lashes.


Serena was often seen with a natural lip color with a little bit of gloss. To achieve this look, apply a Rosy Pink Lipstick or Balm with a Sheer Pink Lipgloss on top. Voila! The look is done!

Friday Favorites!

I wish I had an excuse for not posting frequently for the past few weeks other than school, but honestly, school has been consuming every bit of my life. Unfortunately, according to my planner, I don’t see this changing until the quarter ends. I will try my best to write posts, since I love writing posts and find it the perfect outlet and escape from schoolwork. Anyways, enough about school. It’s been feeling a lot like spring here in the Northwest and I have been definitely awing over spring outfits and other related posts by other bloggers! Here are some of my current favorites!

Jelly Sandals: In or Out?



For some, jelly sandals bring nostalgia of the 90's, while for others, it a resurfacing trend that they may be considering to trying out for the first time. Jelly sandals are essentially exactly how the name describes them. The shoe is usually made out of plastic, with a jelly platform or base. These sandals are also flexible and since they are made out of plastic, they come in a variety of colors.

When I first heard about the jelly sandal trend, I was immediately turned off by the trend, since many of the jelly shoes were caged sandals (such as here). However, when brands started introducing jelly sandals that were simple and looked similar to a typical sandal, the trend started growing on me. While I don't think that I'll be purchasing jelly sandals any time soon, these sandals seem much more comfortable that a typical leather sandal. Jelly sandals are also a great for adding a pop of color and the perfect way to have fun with your outfit.


So now it's your turn. What are your thoughts about jelly sandals? In or Out?

Off the Shoulders | Spring/Summer Trend 2015


Outfits for Inspiration

A growing trend that screams spring and summer and is appearing in stores left and right is the off-the-shoulders trend. Off the shoulder tops and dresses is a chic trend that is a strapless top with sleeves around the arms while showing off the shoulders and collarbone area. If you are over the crop top trend, this is a great alternative if you still want to show a little bit of skin during the warmers months.

The off the shoulder trend is perfect for transforming your outfit from day to night. An off the shoulder top can add a flirty twist to a causal outfits, such as when paired with jeans and sandals. An off the shoulder dress is perfect for showing a little skin during a night out when dressed up with a pair of wedges or heels. Off the shoulder pieces are also often flowy, which helps add a laid-back feel to any look!

What do you think of the off the shoulder trend?

High-End Sandals For Less!

Since it is now spring with summer just right around the corner, it is officially (or almost officially, depending on where you live) sandal season. Sandals are more airy and are typically less restricting than boots. While there is a sandal for almost every occasion, sometimes the price for some sandals are over your budget. If you want a trendy shoe without a crying wallet, continue reading to see five high-end sandals for less!


A staple in every sandal-lover's closet is similar pair of brown strappy wedges. These Forever 21 Strappy Wedges are an almost exact dupe for the Jessica Simpson 'Jadyn' Wedges. Both shoes have a solid colored wedge with simple crisscrossing straps, making it versatile shoe that would transition perfectly from day to night. The only two main, and minor, differences between the two wedges is that the Forever 21 wedges have a small buckle on one of the straps and are also a little bit taller.


Metallic flat sandals are perfect if you want a shoe that can be easily dressed down or dressed up without the added height. The Target Sandals are a close dupe to the Steve Madden "Agathist" Sandals, with both sandals feature a gold metallic crisscross straps and a unique toe (or separating) strap. While they are both very similar, there are a few differences between the two shoes. One difference is that the color of the straps of the two shoes are slightly different as well as the buckle placement. These, however, are minor differences considering the Target sandals are a third of the price compared to the Steve Madden sandals.


If you are looking for a more casual, beach-inspired wedge, the Target Sandels are a very close alternative to the Steve Madden 'Seaside' Wedges. Both wedges feature a espadrille style with a braided jute detailing on the wedge. The two wedges also have one strap across the front of the shoe and another strap wrapping around the ankle. As you can notice in the photos above, there are a few differences. One difference is that the straps on the Steve Madden wedges are patent leather, while the straps on the Target wedges are a matte faux-leather material. Another minor difference is that the Target wedges have extra gold detailing around the ankle strap.


If you are looking for a pair of sandals that are on the more trendy side, these Target Sandals are an almost an exact dupe for the Steve Madden 'Gomly' Sandal. Both shoes have a snake-print pattern on the straps and both feature a similar unique strap shape. The only minor differences between the shoes is that they are both slightly different in color. It is also important to note that typically with more pricey sandals, you are also paying for quality.


This last sandals comparison is between the Forever 21 Sandals and the Steve Madden 'Evict' Sandals. The Forever 21 and Steve Madden sandals are both all-black with similar thick, minimal straps. The only differences between the sandals is that the Forever 21 sandal has a slightly higher heel and has a wider buckle in a different placement. Those differences, however, are small considering the Forever 21 sandals are over half the price of the Steve Madden sandals.


What are your go-to sandals for the warmer months?

Anyways, here are a few of my current favorite pieces of inspiration that I hope will inspire you as well!
