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?
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.)
