Summer Try-On Haul ft. Boohoo

I decided to splurge a little (more like a lot) on a website called Boohoo. I spent $140 including shipping on 16 items.

I don’ know about you but I LOVE buying clothes for the summer. There’s something about the bright colors, fun prints and patterns, and happiness that comes along with splurging on clothes. I decided to splurge a little (more like a lot) on a website called Boohoo.  Boohoo is inexpensive and always on trend, plus you can always find a coupon code or sale going on. Without further ado, let me show you the inexpensive pieces I purchased:

In the video above, I mention many items so I won’t repeat myself too much but I will mention some of my favorite pieces.

The Molly Tie Wrap Front Blouse was hands down one of my favorite items. Wrap tie tops are so flattering on the body, even for less bustier gals like myself. The color red by itself is a show stopper so this blouse will have everyone’s heads turning. The Ceris Thigh Split Stripe Mini Skirt is sexy AND comfortable. Let’s be honest, bloating is inevitable but with this skirt there’s no need to unbutton your bottoms because there aren’t any!

The Julia Satin Angel Sleeve Tie Front is of course, another wrap tie top. If you aren’t one for wearing a bra then this style of top is perfect for you. As I mentioned in the haul, the Abi Layered Chain Choker And Plunge Necklace is eye catching for those deep plunge tops.

Here is another top for the ladies who like to let it all hang out, the Allison Shirred Bandeau is great because you don’t need to wear a bra with it! Are you wearing a bra? Maybe you are, or maybe you aren’t.

Last, but certainly not least, the Kayla Bar And Coin Layered Necklace is great for adding some detail to an outfit. Below I wear the necklace with a bikini to spice up the otherwise plain ensemble, in other words, for Instagram.

Now, the important take away is that I spent $140 including shipping on 16 items including seven accessories, five tops, three skirts, and one playsuit. If you’re looking to get the best bang for your buck head over to Boohoo and starting scrolling!

10 Tips to ALWAYS Look Your Best

So you’ve pressed snooze about three times and you roll out of bed realizing you only have 15 minutes to spare. Not to mention your hair is a mess, your pajamas are subpar, and your breath is kicking.

So, you’ve pressed snooze about three times and you roll out of bed realizing you only have 15 minutes to spare. Not to mention your hair is a mess, your pajamas are subpar, and your breath is kicking. You need to walk out that door looking like a million bucks, and here’s how:

1. Basics are just that, basics. You can’t go wrong with neutral tones and basic clothing pieces like a white tee, jeans, and booties. When in doubt, stick with what you know.

2. Wrinkle free=worry free. Remember when you said “screw it” and walked out the door wearing a t-shirt that’d been crumpled up in the bottom of your drawer for six months? Well, let’s try to avoid doing that. Wrinkle free clothing is a simple way of showing you have your life together.

3. Fit matters. You want to wear clothing that flatters you, don’t keep an item if “you’ll grow into it” or if “you’ll lose a few pounds.”

4. Invest in good quality undergarments. Panty lines are the WORST. Seamless panties/thongs work like a charm. An ill-fitting bra can be spotted a mile away, make sure your bra size is actually your bra size.

5. Monochromatic outfits are perfect for when you don’t know what to wear. By simply wearing the same color items you look like you put in a lot of effort when really you just played eye spy.

6. Nail upkeep is necessary.  You know that if you look really nice but have chipped nails it almost takes always from the outfit. Chipped nails look like you don’t take the time to take care of yourself, avoid this altogether.

7. Simple jewelry makes an outfit look well thought out. Delicate and dainty jewelry pieces tie your outfit together.

8. The front tuck can make any top instantly more flattering. Tucking in your top partly or entirely shapes your body better. Sometimes if a top is too big or on the longer side it almost seems like you’re drowning in it. The front tuck creates a more visually pleasing outfit.

9. Hair is just as important as any other accessory. If your hair is styled you automatically look more put together. A quick and simple hair idea is a bun, high, low, or medium. The bun is especially useful if you haven’t washed your hair in a few days.

10.  Layering is an easy way to appear more stylish. The key to layering is making sure you don’t look like a marshmallow. You will want to start with more fitting pieces and layer on looser pieces. Adjust your style to the fit of the items.

You can now “accidentally” wake up late and still look good. You’re welcome.

How to: Thrift Shop Like A Pro

So, spring is around the corner and you’re just about to press checkout for you cart worth more than $100 containing less than 5 items. Let me stop you right there.

So, spring is around the corner and you’re just about to press checkout for you cart worth more than $100 containing less than 5 items. Let me stop you right there, close your browser, head over to your nearest thrift store, and get ready to splurge. (You were going to splurge anyway.) I am going to give you my thrift shopping tips so you walk out like Macklemore.

1. Pick your location wisely. There is a bit of controversy regarding whether to choose upscale neighborhoods or low-end neighborhoods. Choosing the right location might take a bit of trial and error. I have found brands like Michael Kors, Vineyard Vines, and Banana Republic in the better parts of town.

2. Be patient. You need to be able to sort through someone else’s crap to find your treasure. The art of thrift shopping takes persistence, this task isn’t for weenies.

3. Keep your eyes peeled for discounts. I know thrift shopping is cheap as it is but if Goodwill’s color of the week is blue, you better be ready to play eye spy.

4. Go out of your comfort zone. Do not limit yourself to the labels of “women”, “men”, and “children.” If you’re looking for a vintage tee then head over to the men’s section. If you’re looking for an oversized blazer then look both in men and women.

5. Be aware. The seasons are changing and so is what’s in season and what isn’t. This may be the best time to buy that winter coat you’ve been looking for.

6. Ask when the inventory is restocked. If you want the first pick at the best of the best then head over when the new merchandise arrives.

Thrift shopping can seem like a tedious task, especially when you have to search through items you’re questioning the existence of. However, if you dig through the trash you will find your treasure. I paid $7.50 for a Le Suit skirt suit which retails for $75 and up, talk about a steal!

My Space ft. Dorm Life

Sweat, tie dye, and wet socks were a part of the making of my lovely tie dye comforter.

“My dorm is too big.” said no one ever. Dorm life can be challenging, between trying to find a theme and sticking to it or squeezing everything into your dorm room. Here’s how I did it the 2nd time around.

  1. Theme. Honestly, buy items on the cheaper side related to your theme because 9/10 times it’s going to be different next year. Last year I chose a navy blue and white comforter, this year I chose a sky blue. Also, decorative pillows are important but don’t buy a $30 pillow because at the end of the night its going to end up on the floor.  Dorm room floors tend to not be the nicest so rugs are not only great for masking the old scratched tiles but for filling the empty space. IMG_6212-1
  2. S T O R A G E. Let me tell you college dorm rooms can be small as hell. Anything you can use for storage you better take advantage of. I have a plastic container with shelves and it is my best friend. I also bought this thing that I honestly do not know what to call, it basically holds my flat iron, hairdryer, makeup brushes, and cotton swabs. Be as efficient as possible when storing items because trust me you will run out of room.IMG_6216-1
  3. Personalize. If you love super heroes deck your wall out with some posters. If flowers are your cup of tea buy some fake ones to place in your room. Personally, I love sunflowers. Thus, my water color sunflower tapestry was a must. You can honestly never go wrong with string lights. Now imagine pictures of your loved ones and string lights in one?! I know it is amazing. IMG_6214-1IMG_6213-1
  4. Do-It-Yourself. Sweat, tie dye, and wet socks were a part of the making of my lovely tie dye comforter. I bought a white comforter and followed the steps on the tie dye box. I will say it was not easy whatsoever but I do love the final product. My jewelry box (the thumbnail) is another creation of mine, all it took was an old cigar box and lots of magazine cut outs. Make your dorm room your home because you will be spending ALOT of time there. IMG_6215-1I hope my experience can help make dorm life a little easier for you. Goodluck.
