Sneaker Status

Lately I’ve wanted to pursue a more creative shoe style by buying some that have a few differences by preventing them from being bland. Don’t get me wrong, everyone needs a pair of neutral shoes to wear with an eclectic outfit, but most of the time I want my shoes to be the eclectic ones! I’ve also grown up wearing mainly neutral colored shoes and just recently have wanted to venture out a little more with my style starting with shoes.

Monochromatic summer

I’ve seen the button up skirt trend continue to thrive, so what better way than to wear it myself after finding one that fits my style. I know it’s the middle of summer and most of us are wearing colorful outfits and most of the summer I tend to follow that path, but I also have days where I enjoy wearing monochromatic shades for a classic, timeless look. See how I pair the button up skirt with my boho summer vibe while in the city…

Bralette’s galore

Bralette’s are all the rage now! I’ve seen how some fashion icons will wear them OVER their plain tees and it’s actually surprisingly cute. At first you might think, that’s kind of bazarre wearing your bra over your clothing, but not if the bra is adorable with lace or designs! Bralette’s seem to be more of a statement piece than just for functional purposes. I picked out a few of my favorites I’ve found to show you and hope to have my own soon! Can’t wait to try this trend myself since I think it’s totally adorable. I’m a big fan of lace and am considering purchasing one myself, so be on the look out on a future outfit blog post!

I find that bralette’s look good under a low cut dress, a sheer top, or a top that falls off one shoulder! Don’t hold back on how you wear it as long as you cover up what’s appropriate. No need to go all Miley Cyrus on us! It’s fun to try new trends every now and again because you might be surprised what you end up loving! Bralette’s come in all sizes and colors, from the sporty girls to the girly girls! Lace, silk, cotton, and more! The bralette trend for me is easier to include into a basic wardrobe, easier than the silk lingerie dresses as those tend to be tough to incorporate in a casual wardrobe. I did see someone on Vogue’s site wearing it with a hoodie underneath. See, anythings possible just stick to being you.

Golden glow with sunless tanners

Want a summer tan, but don’t want to be in the sun all day, everyday? Save your skin and choose a self tanning lotion where all you need to do is mix it into your daily lotion routine and wallah, you’ve got a beautiful golden glow that appears to be natural. Ok, ok… sometimes it’s not that easy! Some tanners tend to be on the more orangy side making you appear like an umpa lumpa, but if you look at my suggestions you can luckily avoid that!

I had my birthday while I was away and was fortunate to get such nice presents from everyone:) I wanted to show you the beauty bits I received from my boyfriend, his family, and my sister! So, keep on looking and I’ll show you:)

June music

I had to include my music playlist for the beginning of this month since music is a fun part of my life. I enjoy listening to music, just like most people but wanted to show you what I’ve been listening to. Sometimes you can tell a lot about a person from what they listen to… or that’s what I’ve heard. So this month for me it’s all about the newer music that came out by Ariana Grande and Zayn Malik, who are two of my favorite singers as their voices are soulful and they have real talent unlike lots of pop stars now. I also find music from other YouTubers and from past musicians that have new music too. So give it a look and hope you find a song or two that you enjoy!

Be Alright- Ariana Grande 

Greedy- Ariana Grande 

Sometimes- Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande has that pop sound I really like along with having a very talented voice. I honestly think she sounds close to an angel since she can belt out words. I like listening to her music to feel more girly and put me in a good mood for a fun day!

How to Feel- Moxie Raia 

Wow, I heard Moxie Raia at the Justin Bieber concert as she opened for him. This song is quite a vulnerable, deep song and I have a few lyrics I like most from this. It goes like this…

“Kiss you with fake passion

look in your eyes through opaque glasses

touch you with a velvet glove

tell you all I need is love.”

BeFoUr- ZAYN 

What’s not to like about Zayn? Ok, ok I think he’s good looking, but I also can tell he has an amazing voice. His new album tends to fit my style that I like, like a lot! It’s more unique than his pop group days and I can tell his music is maturing and getting better. I’m glad he made his own album and it didn’t disappoint. He uses his voice to the fullest! I like most of the songs, but BeFoUr is one of my favorites. It’s got a bit of an indie pop vibe going on.

Fashion Killa- ASAP Rocky

My brother is obsessed with ASAP Rocky, I’m not even kidding. OBSESSED! I’m not the biggest fan, since my style isn’t rap that much… until I heard the Fashion Killa song! It’s more of the rap pop that I like with a lighter, upbeat tone to it.

LIKE I WOULD – Oliver Nelson Remix- ZAYN

Here’s another song from Zayn, but it’s an Oliver Nelson remix for a more fun vibe! I like most of the remixes by Oliver Nelson and find them to be perfect for the summer.

Guillotine- Jon Bellion, Travis Mendes

My brother showed me Jon Bellion a few years ago and I found his music to be so unique since he had his own style on indie pop where you would be able to recognize his music in a heartbeat. This song is one of his dancing songs!

Never Be Like You (feat. Kai)- Flume

Flume came out with his new album and a YouTuber I adore recommended this song. I’d heard it before and quite liked it, so I’ve added it to my playlist.

Be Your Girl- Teedra Moses

Another YouTuber found song as it was on We Are To The 9s video for a lookbook as the background music. I thought it was different and I’d never heard it before so I included it in the playlist.

A Change of Heart- The 1975

The 1975 have been one of my favorite bands ever since I fell in love with the song “Chocolate” then the song “Girls.” That album with those songs was the style that I tend to like a lot, besides my pop side. Their new album is a bit of a change for me and may take some time to grow on me as some of the songs are not to my liking yet. I do favor this song out of all of them to be honest. I find it to be a mellow, soulful song about breakups.

Thanks, xoxo
