After a little holiday break from blogging last week, I'm back on the ball with a new post for you! This one is all about the challenges I'm setting for myself in 2018! Read along and see if you'd like to stick to any of these resolutions yourself and we might just make 2018 the best year yet!
This fall I've been experimenting with different types of accessories and how to style them successfully. Although I'm quite a minimalist when it comes to accessories, I do like to add touches here and there. After researching how all of the most fashionable of fashion bloggers are styling their accessories, I've come up with my tips for successfully embellishing without going overboard!
How has your weekend been? I hope it's been great and comment below what you've been up to. Last week I talked about some of the most inspiring women in my life, so if you haven't read that yet, check it out here! This week I wanted to talk about one of my favorite outfits right now and why I think it works.
I'm sorry to start off on such a serious note, but today, I want to dedicate this post to my incredible, strong, and generous Granny. She passed away a week ago today, and I wanted to honor her within this post to say thank you for inspiring me so much. Speaking of inspiring women, I wanted to talk about some of the amazing women influence me on a day-to-day basis, and why I look up to them. (They also all have amazing style, of course!)
How are you all doing? Leave a comment down below, because I'd love to chat with you and see how things are going with you!
One thing that has really been a big factor in my life lately is stress! While is can sometimes push us to reach our goals, stress can be very consuming, especially to me. I consider myself to be a bit of an anxious worry-wart, but I have been trying out some new mechanisms, to help me enjoy life in the moment and stress just a little less.
How are you doing on this fine Sunday? I hope you've had a great week! I am trying to savor my last weekend before the semester begins tomorrow...I have to admit, I'm not entirely looking forward to it. I know it will be a lot better once I'm into the swing of things though, and this is the last semester of my undergraduate degree, so I need to make the most of it!
Anyway, on to the topic of this week's blog post. Let's talk about making the most of the last few moments of summer. Where I am, we'll most likely have at least another month of warm weather. While I am 100% ready for fall, I'm still thinking of all the summer outfits I need to squeeze in before it cools down. Below is my list of summer pieces you need to wear before it's too chilly!
How are you all feeling on this sunny Sunday morning? I hope you're feeling confident and a little experimental, because I've been challenged by Dia & Co. to 'face my fashion fears', and I think you should too! They've challenged me to wear an outfit/clothing item I might not normally have the confidence to wear, so I've decided to show a little more skin, wear some gorgeous colored sunnies, and some oh-so-badass boots.
This outfit featured a couple out-of-my-comfort-zone elements. I thought I might feel a little self-conscious wearing this, but instead I felt quite the opposite! Wearing this gorgeous outfit has surprisingly made me feel more empowered. The boots made me feel badass, the v-neck dress made me feel pretty and feminine, and the sunnies were of so cool.
I've finally gotten around to filming my Ireland & England haulł Hooray! I had such an amazing trip visiting family and seeing all of the amazing sites that Ireland and England had to offer, so the amazing shopping was just the icing on top of the cake! I think I found some perfect pieces with the help of my mom, Mrs. Cindy, my Auntie Mandy, and my lovely cousin, Neave! Thanks for the help guys! <3 I'm very excited to share it with you, so I hope you enjoy it!
One of the ruts that we often fall into is simply buying from the same, well-known brands over and over and over again. I can't say much myself, because they're convenient, always stocked, and have some pretty great prices, but they can begin to overtake our wardrobes. Whether your go-to is Zara, Target, Forever21, Topshop, or Old Navy, we start to look like a walking advertisement for that brand rather than creating our own unique blend of brands that define our personal style. If you want to have a wardrobe that is more original and not exactly the same as the next girl, you have to put a little work and research into finding new and exciting brands!
Below are just a few of the habits you can get into that might help you find some one-of-a-kind pieces that deserve to be in your closet!
I hope you're all having a lovely weekend. Hopefully, you're coping in this summer heat a little better than I am! Every-time I walk outside, I feel like I'm going to instantly melt into a puddle. Hopefully, the temperature is cooler than the impossible 100°F.
Due to this unbearable weather, I thought I should come up with some tips on staying cool and stylish.
How are you all doing this week? I hope you're enjoying summer weather and doing some fun summer activities. I definitely haven't been out in the warm weather as much as I should be (as you can tell from my pasty skin), but this day seemed like a great opportunity to take advantage of the pool.
Since this summer is all about the one-piece, I thought I would find one I love and then help you find the right one for you too!
How is everyone today? I'm sending my well wishes your way. I hope you're having as lovely weather as I am here in the UK!
Today, I thought I should just catch you up on my recent trip to Ireland, and what I think. Below I've included all the reasons you need to get yourselves to Ireland, whether it's food, photogenic locations, or shopping.
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.
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!
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.
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?
