My Holiday Packing Tips

I hope you can forgive me for missing last week's post.  I was travelling to visit family, and wanted to focus on them for a couple days.

This week, I am in Dublin, Ireland!! I thought it was appropriate to talk about my tips for holiday packing!  As a frequent flyer back and forth from England, visiting family, I've learned quite a bit.  Typically, airlines restrict you to a certain weight and number of bags when travelling, but with my tips you'll have room for everything you need, including space for all your purchases.  As per request, here's the tricks I've learned over the past seventeen years. 

Get to Know Yourself (& Your Style)

Most people have taken or will take the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator at least once in their life.  The MBTI is a personality test that determines your psychological preferences, how you view the world, and how you make decisions.  Recently, I've been doing research involving my senior project at university, which has lead me to taking it online.  I was very impressed and intrigued by the results.  Here is one online that I enjoyed taking, because it offers a lot of information about your personality, such as strengths and weaknesses, romantic relationships, and famous people who have the same personality as you.  Take the test and comment down below what you got!

After taking this quiz, I wanted to see if there was any way I could relate this to fashion.  Below I've listed each personality type and a defining piece that should be in there wardrobe!  Comment down below if you agree!

Accessory of the Season: Statement Earrings

I hope you're all having a wonderful summery weekend, and happy memorial day for all of those in the U.S.! Also, I need to give a special shout out to my wonderful, supportive mother, whose birthday is on Tuesday! Happy birthday lovely lady!

Anyway, a new and exciting way to to accessorize is sweeping through the fashion world, and I just had to tell you.  The statement earring is the new way to vamp up your spring/summer outfit.  

How to Style Black Denim for Summer

Anyway, let me introduce, to you, my very favorite summer outfit at the moment...and yes...it features black skinny jeans!  Not usually a frequent companion for the summer months, my go-to BDG Urban Outfitters skinnies can still make an appearance in May.  For this post, I thought I would let you know how I would style black skinny jeans for a warm summer month.

Pattern Play

I hope you've all survived the work-week and are enjoying your weekend!  I'm in a great mood because the sun has been shining and there's been a lovely breeze blowing through.  Also to all the mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day!  I don't know what I'd do without my mom/best friend/biggest supporter, so make sure you treat your mom well and thank her for raising you into the lovely, stylish person you are today.

Now onto this week's style post!  What's more summery than a bit of pattern mixing?  I know one of the most challenging trends can be mixing and matching patterns, without coming off as a crazy bag lady...So, below are my tips for mixing different patterns, and still looking like a your stylish and sane. 

My Month With Bioclarity

I know this is not my usual post day, but I just wanted to do an extra post because I had a little free time! I am going to try and do a beauty post mid-week every now and then just to mix it up a bit now that I have more time in the summer.

First of all, for those of you who also suffer with acne, I feel your pain! It's such a confidence destroyer sometimes, but remember, there is a solution for everyone out there.  I recommend trying different acne systems, spot treatments, and maybe even try a birth control to help with hormonal breakouts.  There are thousands of options, so never give up trying to find the right one for you.  Another important thing to remember is that pretty much everyone as some point in their life suffers with acne, so no one is judging you.  Most of the time, other people won't even notice the spots that seem so obvious to you.  It's a normal part of life and sometimes we just have to remind ourselves of that.

Summer Ready

Sorry for my little blogging break last weekend.  It was my 22nd birthday and I just wanted to focus on spending time with my lovely friends and family!  Thank you to all of those who left me lovely birthday wishes on Facebook and Instagram.  You guys are the best! For this week's fashion post, I thought I would go for a more summery look.  There is a festival in town this weekend and the sun has been shining everyday, so I thought this look was very appropriate.  

Just a Touch of Rock & Roll

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend.  This week I just thought I would talk about adding a little rock & roll to your outfit.  I have included a few defining elements of a rock & roll look below.  As you all know, my style is not very rocker, but I've decided that paired with the right pieces, it's a pretty cool look.  So if I can make it work, then so can you!

Spring/Summer 2017 Trends

I hope you have all had a lovely Easter weekend if you celebrate Easter! I, on the other hand, have been working and doing homework all weekend, but sometimes that's just how it goes.   

I thought it was about time we discuss some of Spring/Summer's hottest trends.  Spring is such an exciting time to re-vamp your closet and inject a little color and fun.  I always feel incredibly inspired by the blooming flowers, the crisp air, and the warm sun.  The trends below are the perfect embodiment of those things, that you can actually wear.  So get in the spring state of mind!

The White Shirt: Reinvented

I hope you're all having a fun and relaxing weekend.  This week, I thought I needed to discuss the revival of the white shirt.  

Your classic white button-up shirt is getting a major revamp this season.  We are seeing updated white shirts adorning every fashion blogger and celebrity, and the best thing is that it's easy to get on board yourself.
