First Day of School Outfit Ideas

For me, school will be starting soon so I wanted to share some outfit ideas for the first day of school!If you already started school, you can wear these cute outfits any day at school too, hope you enjoy! For links to where you can buy any of the items below, the details will be on my polyvore.
First Day of School Outfits
I know that in different places the weather will be different, for example here in Canada it`s already starting to get too cold for shorts some days whereas I know in other places people are dieing of heat!
#1 The first outfit is a simple skater skirt with a brown belt to match the brown sandals. Lastly just tuck in any plain tee and add a long necklace for a really cute outfit.
#2 The second outfit is my favorite! Its a shirt dress with a chambray shirt tied around the waist, paired with white high tops. Shirt dresses are so great for school because they are so easy to slip on, comfortable, casual, and still bring the femininity that dresses have.
#3 This outfit is a bit boho chic, the flowy shorts and shirt combined give a really gentle and soft look!
#4 If it’s a bit colder where you live, this outfit is great because it includes jeans. Boyfriend jeans, converse, and a graphic tee go so well together and will keep you warm. If you want to be even warmer, any cardigan would go great with this outfit!

Whole Sale Buying Wishlist / Womens Fashion

Hey! Today I have a wishlist post from a site called Whole Sale Buying. It is a website similar to dresslink, it sells clothes for all genders and ages, accessories, shoes, home, electronics, you name it, they have it! The prices are also amazing! For clothes, I didn’t see anything that cost more than $20. And with thousands and thousands of beautiful items of clothing I’m sure you’ll find something you love! I was making this wishlist and couldn’t stop finding more and more things that I wanted, I think this is the longest wishlist I’ve ever done!

Girl Asymmetric Dovetail Chiffon Long Skirt Elastic Waist Band$4.84

I love chiffon skirts so much, they’re so flowy and light feeling! I’ve wanted a high-low skirt for a while now and when I saw this skirt I knew I needed it! The black waist band will cinch your waist and since the skirt is high-low it will hide the unflattering parts of your thighs and show the flaterring parts. This skirt is very flattering to any body type and can be dressed up or down whoch is why I think it is an essential! It also comes in many beautiful colors like navy blue, watermelon red, pink, black and more!

Women Fashion Sexy Casual Round Neck Sleeveless Backless Back Cross Strap Solid Irregular A-Line Dress

$4.44

Again with the high-low, but you can see why I like it so much as I explained in the previous outfit. I thought this dress was super cute and casual. I love dresses because they are so easy to wear, just slip one on and you have a whole outfit finished!

Women Casual Loose 3/4 Sleeve Hollow Lace Crochet Patchwork Irregular Hem Solid Tops Blouse

$5.24

If you haven’t noticed I love clothes that is casual but has a touch of elegance as well. The lace and cuts on this shirt transformed a plain shirt into something beautiful! This shirt comes in black or wine red and can be worn with literally anything, shorts, skirts, jeans, this style shirt goes with practically everything!

$4.64

 I’ve talked about this before in another post but exposed shoulders are so sexy without exposing too much skin. The fabric, cut, and exposed shoulders make this shirt great for the summer!
$3.42
I must say that this shirt reminds me a lot of halters that you can find in Brandy Melville and Pacsun. But its around 1/8 the cost! The quote is so adorable and halters are really in this season which makes me really want this cute tee!
$7.67
I’ve wanted a sleeveless trench coat for the longest time and this one comes in apricot and khaki, two of the cutest colors for trench coats! Wear it with jeans, and plain tee, and heels for a super cute, chic, yet simple look.
$3.72
Here in Canada it’s already starting to get cold so hoodies are a must! Which I why I have to stock up on cute hoodies like this one! The lace gives this hoodie a super cute look while keeping you super warm!
$3.83
Latly I’ve been loving short dresses so when I saw this I couldn’t believe my luck. A shirt dress with exposed shoulders!? That gets double points in my book. Another great thing about this dress is that it comes in a size for everyone, it goes from medium to 5XL!
I hope you liked this wishlist, and make sure to check out this website for amazing finds!

Casual Evening Outfit + Dresslink review

Today I wanted to share an outfit that I thought would be really cute for a casual night with friends. Its really easy to recreate this outfit because all you need is an elegant black shirt, black heels, and printed bottoms. The printed bottoms add some color and break up the blackness from the shoes and shirt- it adds a touch of playfulness! The exact details for the outfit will be listed below along with a review of a website called Dresslink, from which I made a wishlist post a few weeks ago.

790(2)   752(2) 699  645(2)Shirt: Dresslink /Bottoms: Angie 
/Shoes: Steve Madden Watch: Dresslink /Bracelets: Aldo 
/Purse: Winners, similar here 

Dresslink is a webiste that sells just about everything! Clothes, accessories, home, you name it, they have it, and all at such great prices. Click here for more info about the website. If you read the wishlist, you may remember that I was a bit skeptic about the quality of the clothes because the prices were so low. Well I was nicely surprised when I got the items and they were all fairly nice material. I mean, they obviously weren’t silk or anything, but the materials were soft and weren’t itchy at all. Another of my concern was the sizing, the sizes were asian sizes so you had to be really careful when ordering. Luckily all the items I bought fit me perfectly, so if you measure correctly, the sizing is quite accurate. Also, the items arrived in only 2 and a half weeks even though I was expecting it to take 3 or more, so that was a bonus as well! In the pictures above, the watch and shirt were both from dresslink and both were under $6! Look out for one my next posts witch will feature two more items from dresslink!

Overall I give this website 4/5 stars. The quality is much better than the price, all the items looked the same as in their pictures so there weren’t any surprises there, and all the items fit well. The reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was simply because shipping takes quite long, it did arrive sooner than expected but still it took some time. I strongly recommend this website if you’re on a budget but are a shopaholic (like myself), because this website has some seriously cute stuff for a great price!

How to shop smart-part 2! Save money when shopping!

Everyone knows that a girls biggest weakness is shopping! Looking thorough endless racks of clothes I always manage to find something I like and can never resist the urge to buy it! Unfortunately the only solution to not buy clothes you don’t need is to not go shopping, but if you are anything like me, that won’t work, I always end up in a mall somehow! Here are some tips on how to shop yet still save money. If you haven’t already seen the first post in this two-part series make sure to check it out!

My first tip is that you look in several different stores before you buy an item. If I find a pretty simple shirt that I like but I know I can find similar ones in other stores I look in different stores and then buy the shirt that costs the least. I find it best to make a round around the mall first and then if you don’t find anything you like more, you can always go back to the first store. I usually find an item that I like more and costs less if I don’t buy the item I found in the first store.

My next tip may be a bit strange but it’s to always bring someoneto be your “downer”. A downer can be your mom,sibling,boyfriend, friend, anyone that will tell you what you really need and nwhat you don’t. In other words, the person that will be thinking logically. For example, if you want to buy a super fancy and exspensive evening dress that you will probably only wear once, your downer should point that out and not let you buy it. They should even try to drag you out of the store! 😉

I’ve talked about this next point in my swimsuit series and it is to decide quality over quantity or vice-versa. So pretty much decide if you would rather have more pieces of clothing but they won’t last long, or less pieces of clothing that you will really love and last you a longer time. There are pros and cons to both, if you’d like to read about them go check out my swimsuit series, I talk about best places to but bathing suits and best bathing suits for your body type!

Hope these tips will help you save some money! Have a great day 🙂

How To Shop Smart! Part 1!

Everyone knows that a girls biggest weakness is shopping! Looking thorough endless racks of clothes I always manage to find something I like and can never resist the urge to buy it! Unfortunately the only solution to not buy clothes you don’t need is to not go shopping, but if you are anything like me, that won’t work, I always end up in a mall somehow! Here are some tips on how to shop yet still save money.

A day or two before you go shopping always go online and check for coupons. You’re probably thinking, “I won’t find any coupons, if there are any sales I’ll find out at the store,” but you’d be surprised how many coupons I’ve found and how much money I’ve saved. There are usually coupons for The body shop and Claires so make sure to always search for coupons for those stores.

Stores are sneaky, they don’t place racks randomly, they place them strategically. Almost every store has a clearance rack, you just have to really look around for them. Usually the sale items are at the back of the store but sometimes stores strategically place clearance racks where most people won’t look. For example, Urban Behavior puts the women’s clearance stuff on the second floor where mens clothes and home decoration are. If you are unsure of where the sale racks are in a store, don’t be shy to ask someone who works there.

If you know what you are buying and from which store you want it, look online before you go to the store and remember the price. Many times, prices vary from a store and the website of a store or there is a online only promotion going on. This way you can get the same item you were planning to buy for less.

Hopefully this post will help some of you save money. More tips on this and part 2 will be coming out soon, so keep watch!

Make-up wishlist

Did you ever have one of those days where you feel like you don’t have anything you want-in this case makeup? You have containers full of eye shadows, lipsticks, blushes, foundations, and more but you still feel like you don’t have anything and what you do have is crap? Well unfortunately, I had one of those days yesterday, so to make myself feel better I decided to make a wishlist of makeup products that I will splurge on eventually. Here they are!

Chanel nail polish in rouge noir: Everyone loves a classic red nail, well this is a red with a twist! Like the name says, it looks black and red- two of my favorite nail polish colors combined into one! It’s a bit dark for the summertime but I think it would be a staple in the wintertime. Also, it reminds me of vampires for some reason, what do you think?

Rouge Infusion Lip Stain by Sephora: I love lip stains because in my opinion they are the longest lasting. This color looks lovely and since its a stain it has no texture so it is great if you have dry lips like I usually do. At $18 it isn’t too expensive so I think ill be purchasing this soon.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation: Everyone seems to be raving about this product and I really want to test it out and see if it’s worth the hype.

Clinique Highlighting and Contouring sticks: I still haven’t quite gotten a hang of contouring but these sculpting chubby sticks seem to make everything easier. And there’s no need to buy whole bottles of darker and lighter foundations if you have these.

Naked Smokey Palette: This is the newest Naked Palette and it came out not too long ago. I bought one for my friend’s birthday and now I have to get myself one too. It has beautiful pigmented colors that are great for creating smokey eye looks, well I guess that’s why its called the Smokey Palette!

This list could go on forever so I decided to be realistic and stop it here, if you have any of these products please let me know in the comments if they are as good as everybody raves about them or if they let you down. Thanks!

5 Essential Tops

Hey guys, I decided to make an updated 5 essential tops post! My last one got really great reviews so I hope you enjoy this one as well!
5 Essential Tops

Juvia slim fit shirt
84 CAD – jades24.com

Firstly I believe that everyone needs a plain tank top. Simply because they are great for layering. You can wear them under sweater or see through shirts, but you can also just wear them and then throw a scarf on for a casual outfit.

Equipment button up shirt
65 CAD – renttherunway.com
Flannels are probably the most sold shirt ever. Everywhere you look, there are flannels. They add a pop of color to any casual outfit and that is why i think they are an essential.

Nautical tee
58 CAD – wconcept.com
A plain t-shirt or a striped one like the one in the picture above is definitely a closet essential because it can be styled in so many ways. They can be tucked into skirts, jeans, shorts, or worn loosly. They are also amazing for layering as most of these items are.

Maurices 3 4 sleeve shirt
34 CAD – maurices.com

I added in this 3/4 baseball tee because I love throwing it on with a pair of jeans and shorts for a simple but cute outfit.

Glamorous shirts top
22 CAD – glamorous.com
This white crop top is really great for hot summer days or a simple layering piece.
