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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
How has your week been?As for me, it's been a little tough getting back into the swing after spring break, but I'm doing better now that it's the weekend. This week, I thought I'd write about how to elevate your weekend look from boring to fabulous. In usual Georgie form, I have compiled my personal tips to create the perfect weekend ensemble.
Who wouldn't want to take a trip back in time to the 16th century when extravagant gowns and bouffant hair were at their height? Although we'd all love to be lords and ladies for a day, a heavy hoop skirt and layers of heavy fabric wouldn't be the most practical for driving cars or going to the grocery store.
Since it's one of the biggest trends of the season, I've decided to take the corset into my own hands and make it my own.
So spring has finally sprung, and the weather is slowly changing from dull and chilly to bright, crisp, and a little warmer.
One of the most wonderful things about spring, in my opinion, is the introduction of the color that was lost during those dull winter months. The flowers start blooming and that means your wardrobe can too! I've been thoroughly enjoying adding some pops of color back into my life the past couple weeks, so I thought I would research what colors will be trending this season so you can try them out too. Grab yourself a cup of tea and some chocolate, and let's talk color!
How are you all doing? I hope you've all had a successful and mostly stress-free week. For this week's post, I want to take you back to the 80s...well maybe not all the way back, but why not dip our toes in a little? We need to discuss how past trends are influencing style today and which throwbacks you should bring back.
This week I thought we should get to know each other a little better. I'll enlighten you with a few facts about myself that you may not already know and you can comment below with your answers to one or more of the questions.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I'm sorry I missed last week's post. I am officially starting my senior show at university, so I had a very busy week last week.
Anyway, let's get into this week's post which is all about shopping online. Honestly, online shopping is a little intimidating at first, isn't it? Never fear, Georgie is here! I have a few little tips will make your online experience just that much smoother. I mean think about it, what could be better than shopping from the comfort of your own bed?
Today I wanted to discuss my workout routine and how I went from not working out at all to enjoying working out multiple times a week! First, I think I need to debunk the perceived notion that a "work out" has to be the intense lifting of 70lbs weights and running 12 miles. There is nothing less motivating than telling yourself that's how it has to be. "Working out" is simply getting out and moving in order to feel better afterward and to keep your body healthy. "Working out" can be hiking in the mountains, like my mom, doing yoga with your friends, or even dancing for an hour!
I hope you are all getting back into the swing of school or work without mourning the holiday break too much.
So I have some exciting news that has added a little excitement to my new year! My blog has officially been up and running for a year now! Because of how proud I am of this accomplishment, I thought I would look back on some of the highlights of the past year, as a thank you everyone who has supported the blog!
I hope you have all had a wonderful start to the new year, and I'm sorry I didn't post last weekend. We had to head back from England, and I wanted to focus on spending the last couple days with my family!
Anyway, as we have now entered 2017, I have made a few fashion New Year's revolutions that you might want to try out for yourself.
I hope you are all having a lovely Christmas holiday! I cannot believe Christmas is already here. December really has flown by this year, which makes me a little sad, since it is one of my favorite months. Although, I am really looking forward to celebrating with my lovely family and eating lots of festive foods.
In the wintery spirit, I thought I would go over some of the key trends for Winter 2016/2017.
I hope you are all having a lovely winter so far! It is almost Christmas and I'm so excited to be with the fam! I feel as though I'm already running out of winter outfit ideas, so I've decided I need to get a little more creative. I think incorporating some usually summer pieces is the best way to expand your winter wardrobe.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend! As for me, I'm having a pretty good week. I just took my final exams and am finally finished with what has been a very stressful semester. Also, this time next week I will be home in England (with my favorite cousin, Neave!) I'm so excited to see all of my family and spend the holidays with them. For today's post, I thought I would give you a quick outfit-of-the-day look.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and a great Thanksgiving if you live in the U.S.! I had a busy time visiting family and friends, but I loved seeing everyone! Now I am just counting down the next two weeks until the semester it over. It's been a tough one.
For this post, I just wanted to talk about some new shapes I've been experimenting with this fall.
Since the temperature is dropping and party season is just around the corner, I thought it was about time we talk about layering and how to do it like a pro. I've chosen a daytime and a nighttime look to show how I'm using basics to create the perfect layered effect.
One of the most popular trends for Fall/Winter 2016 are military/band style jackets. They have cropped up everywhere from the Gigi x Tommy Show to various bloggers' Instagrams. Of course, I had to find a my own option to incorporate into my wardrobe.
After seeing Gigi's jacket during her show, I knew I had to have it. Of course, her Tommy Hilfiger jacket is over $300, so I was forced to go on a hunt for another option. After an intensive search, I have completely fallen for this black velvet, Zara version with gold details. (Zara has really been on the ball lately!)
Speaking of making it... I thought it was about time I share some of my favorite fashion bloggers. These are some of bloggers that have really made it in the fashion world. This is where I find inspiration and motivation to keep blogging and improving!
I have included my personal favorite bloggers and they have various numbers of followers ranging from 90k to 4 million. I just chose the ones that inspire me the most, not necessarily the most famous bloggers. (Bloggers photos will be in the same order as their name.)
I hope all of you had an awesome week. I don't know about you, but my week has been very busy, so I'm happy to just be sitting, writing, and chatting with you guys.
Typically, fall consists of darker colors like jewel toned greens, deep burgundies, and and burnt oranges, but I've decided to incorporate some other colors into my fall wardrobe, just to spice it up. You can never go wrong with a pop of color.
Today I wanted to introduce a new type of post that I will be incorporating into my blog every now and then. I'm calling it the On Trend series. I will pick one trendy item for a particular season and then create an outfit around it.
For this first On Trend post, I decided to go with one of my all time favorite trends of the year, the bomber. This one in particular is an embroidered bomber, which are very on trend, especially for this fall and winter. I chose a black bomber with an almost asian inspired embroidery on both the front and back from Zaful. This jacket has quickly become one of my favorite jackets for everyday. It's easy to throw on, like most bombers, and the colors goes with everything, of course.
How is your Sunday going? I hope it has been full of cool October weather and some free-time to just chill.
Transitioning into fall this year has seemed a little harder than normal. I think it has been because one day it's in the 80s and the next day it will be in the 50s (Fahrenheit, just to clarify)! I've had to be pretty creative in the outfits I come with.
I hope you are all having a wonderful October. I, personally, am incredibly excited by cooling weather, which leads to all things amazing. How ready are you for snuggly sweaters, hot coffee in a cute mug, and the smell of bonfires. Another amazing thing that I've been enjoying is Fashion Month. I've been keeping up with my favorite fashion bloggers through their social media sites and I swear I feel like I've been there with them. Have you guys been keeping up? Although, I am a bit sad that it's over now.
This week, I thought I'd hit you with some easy and casual looks perfect for your weekend activities or an early morning class.
Everyone needs a relaxing, comfy outfit occasionally. It's sort of like a "style break". So, I've decided to feature two unique and interesting sweatshirts. It can't get much more comfy or easy than a sweatshirt. Since they are a little prettier than your average pull-on sweatshirt, they make a comfortable outfit look just that much more put together.
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I don't know about you, but since school has started back up, my weekends have already become infinitely busier.
Anyway, for this week's blog post, I want to share this amazingly embroidered dress from Dezzal, these gorgeous retro sunnies from Rowley Eyewear, and tips on how to pull yourself out of a bad mood with your wardrobe.
Thanks for joining me again, for another style post. If any of you were missing your weekly style post after yesterday's beauty post, here you go!
For this post, I wanted to talk about some simple ways you can jazz up a basic outfit. By basics, I mean clothes we probably all have in our closet and probably wear constantly, like a classic pair of jeans or a graphic tee. Of course we love these basics for a reason, but sometimes they can be little boring without some embellishing. So, I've come up with some easy ways to spice up a simple look.
