How to style comfy sweaters! Part 1

I don’t know about you, but I certainly have many many days where I wake up in the morning and all I feel is cold. It makes me not want to get out of bed or do anything! Then the thought of putting on a tight or revealing (basically uncomfortable) top to look fashionable makes me feel sick. All i want to do is not wear a bra, be warm and comfortable but still look presentable. On these days my huge comfy and fuzzy sweaters come in handy! I’ve had an obsession with sweaters lately and now they won’t fit in my closet anymore, whoops! Anyways here are a few different ways to style comfy sweaters without looking like you completely gave up on life ( even though you may feel that way inside) ;).

This post is going to made up of several different ootd looks put together but I will also give tips on ideas how to make theses outfits not so boring. You’ll see that they are all very simple, warm, and most importantly comfortable! If you want to see pictures of all my comfy sweaters, keep a look out for my Sweater Collection post coming up very soon!

aeo-sweater

Sweater: AEO | Leggings: Hyba | Shoes: Ugg

This is one of the simplest outfits but I love it so much! I love pairing leggings with sweaters because they are tight and form fitting which is completely opposite from sweaters. The ugg boots especially tied the whole look together because they are stylish but not very visible at the same time and they do not drag the eye to them, instead the sweater is the statement piece with nothing distracting the eye from it.

cozy-sweater

Sweater: H&M | Jeans: Urban Behavior | Shoes: Timberland

Here I went for a monochrome look. I paired my biggest black and white sweater with ripped jeans to add some more interest to the outfit. I really feel like the rips at the knee and some edge to the otherwise simple outfit. I finished the look off with matching white and grey socks peaking above my Timberlands. I chose the Timberlands instead one of my black pairs of shoes because I wanted to break up the monochrome a little bit and I find that they also add to the edginess of the outfit.

sorels

Sweater: Shrinking Violet | Leggings: Hyba | Shoes: Sorels

This outfit is one that I wear when I truly cannot get out of bed. I like this sweater because it is plain and can be paired with anything but it isn’t just a plain canvas, instead it has these cut-out patterns which automatically give the sweater some interest. I paired it with leggings again and wore my Sorels because they match the color scheme of the outfit perfectly, I especially love how the white fur ties in with the white sweater! Also, I’m not sure if you can tell in the picture but the leggings are more of a heather grey so there are specks of white that once again match the sweater.

styling-a-sweater

Sweater: Shrinking Violet| Jeans: Costa Blanca | Socks: Roots | Scarf: Forever 21 | Shoes: Sorels

Once again, I am wearing the white sweater as above but this time I paired it with jeans. I also accessorized with a burgundy scarf and roots socks peaking from the sorels to add some color to the outfit. I also love wearing my Talula burgundy mits for an even cozier and cute look!

As you guys can see, I love making simple outfits with little touches that add some extra interest or a pop of color to them! Tag me in your pictures if you want me to see some of your cozy sweater outfits!

I didn’t plan on making this a two-part series but it would be too long for only one post so look out for part two with more looks coming up next week!

Beach Basics!

So summer is just around the corner (for me) although in other countries I know people are already going to beach! This makes me extremely jealous but what can I do, unfortunately I can’t change the weather!  With my little ramble being said,  I’m going to show you guys a few of my beach essentials!

An adorable bathing suit!

This is something pretty obvious but I cannot stress how important it is to find a bathing suit that you feel comfortable in! Even if it is a bit out of your price range, I strongly suggest you spend a bit more if it means you will feel confident in it! Everyone has their own personal body issues ( for me it’s my small chest) but don’t worry because I have you covered. For a small chest click here, big chest here,  for tummy issues here, if you  have no curves here, and for affordable bathing suit sites here!

Sunglasses

I love sunglasses so much that last year I had a white line on my nose from where my sunglasses were because I tanned everywhere except there! Although, this year someone brought to my attention that if you don’t buy good quality sunglasses, the lenses may actually be ruining your vision! So unfortunately, I think that most of those cute sunglasses from stores like Forever 21 or H and M aren’t the best for all day wear.

Cute Coverups

I love coverups even more than bathing suits, this is because with coverups you can highlight your best features and hide your worst! Here are a few of my favorite coverups!

Sunscreen!

Last year I really wanted to tan so I put on almost no sunscreen while I was on vacation in Mexico. I know, I’m an idiot! I never really understood how strong the U.V rays really are until I returned home with a bunch of brown spots on my legs. To this day I m still not certain what they were but I think that they were sun spots. Most have disappeared (there are still a few left) but it has taught me a lesson that I will never forget!

OOTD : 4/25/2016

Hey guys! Once again, I have another really simple ootd with a leather jacket! Don’t worry, I promise to change it up a bit next week ūüėČ Although honestly, I’ve really been loving leather jackets for this weather! They are perfect for the (around) 10 degrees weather when its also a bit windy. This jacket is from Danier, and I strongly suggest you go to the store asap because they just went bankrupt! This sucks for the company, but for us that means huge sales! Everything must go so most things are up to 70% off! Of course, I have horrible luck, so I bought my jacket one week before they declared bankruptcy and paid full price ūüė¶ I hope you guys have better luck and snag up a really good deal! More outfit details below!

Spring 2016 Trends

Spring has finally come! SO today I wanted to share some of the newest trends on the runways, so¬† you can be ahead of the crowd! If you don’t want to go as all out as some of these runway looks, you can always do it in a more subtle way, for some pictures I’ll explain how. For more runway looks you incorporate in your daily style, click here.

Suede

Suede isn’t really a new trend, its been around for the past few seasons, but it still isn’t going anywhere! Especially since festival season is coming up! (Did anyone go to Coachella? Comment Below!)

White shirts

The shirt above is a bit extreme but nonetheless white statement shirts are trending now (then again, when were they not!) I love the runway designers have made this a trend because everyday people can really rock it too!

Spanish Inspired

Proenza Schouler, Diane von  Furstenberg, Michael Kors, Jonathan Simkhai, and Peter Copping for Oscar de la Renta: All 5 designers (and more!) incorporated hints of Spanish culture into their collections, from bold red hues to toreador-esque flourishes.

Thin Pleats

I know what you’re thinking! But no, thick school girl pleats are not back. Instead, designers made very thin and close together pleats-creating a much more elegant look. Almost like regular skirts except with a bit more texture.

Paper bag bottoms

I really love the paper bag waist, this is because it’s very flattering on the body, the pants are usually very comfortable because the bottoms are loose, and they are a lot more unique than other waists that you see on most other trousers and skirts.

Nets

Honestly, I never really liked the net trend. For some reason shirts with holes just didn’t cut it for me! But major designers such as Emillio Pucci (above) and Alexander Wang are really making me re-think it!

Black Leather Jacket OOTD

Hey guys! Today it was a pretty chilly day but I was sick of wearing my thick winter jackets so I was determined to find a way to wear my leather jacket and still be warm! To do this I paired a silky tank top with a really warm black cardigan and then put my leather jacket on top! This kept me pretty warm the entire time I was outside, so from now on I will always be wearing cardigans underneath my leather jacket! What I love about pairing cardigans with a leather jacket is how my arms and hands will be extra warm. In the pictures below, the only place you can see the cardigan is where my hands are but that extra piece of fabric really helped keep my hands warm without wearing gloves. More outfit details are below, Enjoy!

Spring Must-Haves

Hey guys! Today I have a post about Spring Must- Haves that I selected from the website, Spring. Spring is a website that sells all sorts of clothes for all genders, they are not their own brand but instead they sell a bunch of different brands. When you look below, I’m sure you will come across some brands you already know and love!

 

Marigot: Lurin Short Pajama set

I thought this pajama was really cute! The reason I think it’s a spring must-have is because the top is long-sleeved and the bottoms are shorts. Since Spring weather is kinda bipolar I like to be prepared for everything so this pajama set is great for the warmer and colder spring days!

Urban Outfitters: Without Walls Crisscross legging

Cut-outs are a big thing once again this season. These leggings are so adorbale but they are also really great for working out! Because of the cutouts on the side, your legs will be able to breathe easily yet you will also be covered where most of your insecurities might be!

DSTLD: Ripped High Waisted Skinny Jeans

I’ve been telling myself to but a pair of high waisted skinny jeans for over a year now! They are expensive but jeans are honestly the best clothing investment because you can wear them year round! The reason I like high waisted jeans is because you can wear really cute crop tops without actually showing too much (or any) skin.

Celine High Neck in White Perforated Perfection (1 piece)

I might be getting ahead of myself as it is snowing here right win but I really love this bikini so I had to include it! Let me just say that it is amazing for those in the itty bitty titty community ūüôā

Track Pant Silky Blue Black

I often find Spring to be too cold for shorts so when I don’t want to wear jeans I opt for these types of pants. They are loose and are as comfortable as sweatpants except they look way nicer and can be made to look extremely chic with the right top and accessories. Because they are loose and usually made out of a thinner fabric, they will allow air circulation and will let your legs feel¬† warm but not too warm.

WOMEN’S PADDED TUBE KNIT VARSITY JACKET

I have seen this jacket everywhere! It’s a great transitional jacket that would go great with the pants above (and almost anything else)!

Urban Outfitters: Ecote Cooper Off-The-Shoulder Top

Off the shoulder tops are really trending now and I’m not surprised! They look a bit elegant and laid back at the same time. They are also a great way to expose skin without being too revealing or if crop tops aren’t your thing.

Wishlist – 2016

Hey guys, I think this is the first wishlist of the year and that makes me really excited! This wishlist is actually requested by a few of my friends because my birthday is coming up and apparently I’m hard to shop for. With that being said they wanted me to put together a list so that they can get a general idea of what I like (now). My style is kind of all over the place but this year I’m going for more sophisticated and intriguing styles but¬† they need to have a sense of casualty to them. So I know that’s really hard to come by but what I mean is that I’m looking for things with lots of cut- outs and things that are really casual but with a twist!

How to Get Rid of Dry Winter Skin, part 2!

Every time Winter rolls in, I know that I`m about to have a battle with my skin! It always gets really dry and flaky, which not only looks bad but it also makes putting face make-up on almost impossible and it also itches like crazy! Although this year I think I finally got it right! Here are a few tips on how to keep your face moisturized!

Here are a few reasons why your face may be so dry.

  • Your daily cleanser
  • Washing your hands too much
  • The dry winter air
  • The winter wind
  • Your acne creams

Since there are so many solutions to these problems, I`m going to make this a two part series, the solutions and explanations to the first two points is already post here!

The dry winter air + the wind

I put these two together because it all really comes to the same thing; the weather! If it is cold and windy outside that will certainly give you dry skin. That is because the cold air drys out your face because the air is dry too and there isn`t humidity in the air. The harsh wind is also bad for your face, leaving your face extremely dry in the winter! So dry that your normal moisturizer may not even be enough!

So my suggestion is that you use a light exfoliant first to get rid of the pieces that are flaky, then take a warm shower right after and put on your most moisturizing cream. The humidity that you created in the shower + the moisturizing cream should be enough for your face to recover from the exfoliating. Also, keep your moisturizing cream beside your bed so that you won`t forget to put it on before bed and in the morning. One more tip is to not only slather the cream on your face but to rub it in, pretend that you are massaging your face so that the cream will get thoroughly absorbed by your face.

Your acne creams

The way that acne creams work, is that they dry out your face by absorbing all the dirt and stuff that clogs your pores. It also dehydrates your skin to make the pimple smaller, this is why many people suggest putting toothpaste on your acne to shrink pimples, because it is extremely dehydrating! It does help your acne problems but will unfortunately completely dry up your face in the winter time, giving you skin so flaky that your foundation crusts up.

So to solve this problem, try to use a moisturizing face mask at least 2 times a week. Also include moisturizer in your morning and bedtime routine even if you have a load of other products. It would be ideal to stop using the acne creams for a while to let your face get it`s natural oils back but I know how bad acne can get and why some people may not want to stop, so instead of getting rid of acne creams, go to a pharmacist instead of a drugstore and specifically ask them if they have any acne creams that are better for your skin. As for the foundation problem, try using a beauty blender instead of your fingers and apply the foundation by patting it in your skin so that all the pores are covered with foundation. Do NOT rub your face or apply it side to side because that will make the application 100 times worse, it will cause your skin to get even more flaky.

I hope some of these tips help you get glowing skin in the winter time, let me know if they help ūüôā
