You never say hey, or remember my name.

Loving these summer outfits! Can you believe its going to be AUGUST already? I can't... Life is going to be changing very soon (too soon!). Changing as in, my life is going to start. Like, officially. In about a month I'll be starting school, learning to become... dun dun dunnnn A JOURNALIST! Oh my.. life is going to get crazy. But it's a change that I am so, so, so looking forward to. I've spent the past year and a bit working and not doing much else. Getting back to reality will be good for me =) Anywho... back to my original train of thought... I was inspired by these outfits because of how simply put together they each are.

I've always been a fan of Natalie Portman's stlye. She always seems to be on trend, yet still sticks to her own sense of style. And always, always manages to look AMAZING! Really in love with her shorts/ tee combo. I like how the shirt has volume on top but because she tucked the shirt in it works. As for the second picture; Loving Brittany Snow's floral romper/ corset like belt combo. Very cute. The sweetness of the floral, and the bright colours scream summer yet the brown belt compliments it very well. Not to mention she's sneaking in a fall trend before fall has even begun!

The last picture was taken from The Satorialist. When I first saw it I couldn't take my eyes off of this couple. They both have an amazing sense of style. But what inspired me the most was not the woman's outfit. It was the guy's! He just looks very polished and I guess.. "cool". If you get what I'm trying to say... They both are obviously comfortable in their own skin, which is why they look so fabulously beautiful. I think I'm just drawn to the man because I envy his ankle length trousers ;) I've been craving a pair for awhile now...

Well ta ta for now. xo

Trend to Try.. Maxi Skirts

So I will admit that I'm not exactly the biggest fan of maxi dresses, yet alone maxi skirts. I'm not sure why... I guess I just prefer shorter lengths since you know, it is summer! But looking around at other blogs I've been inspired to create these looks. And I get why this trend has been so big in the past... Maxi skirts are all about simple dressing. You can pretty much wear it with anything and look very pulled together and polished (albeit in 30 degree weather?). What's your opinion on this trend? I'd say it works for many occasions... BBQ, day at the park, day out shopping, grocery shopping perhaps. Even works for an evening out, maybe not a wild party (ok definitely not a wild party).. but cocktail hour? I say, have fun with this trend and play around with proportions. Ta-ta =)
