Fashion Obsession: Plaid Shirts

Hello lovelies, it's been a while! I apologize for my lack of blogging...it's a long story. Lately I have been experimenting a lot more with my fashion, and let me tell you- it is GREAT! I've always stuck to the classic preppy styles, but lately have had my eyes on different types of fashion, including a "grungier" look..... Plaid has become a staple piece to my outfits. I pair one with EVERYTHING! I am obsessed. I find that a plaid shirt wrapped around your waist gives your look a chilled out, street chic vibe.

Here are some of my favourite outfits I've come across with a plaid shirt:

Thoughts? Is this a new fashion faux-pas, or totally casual chic? Let me know!

Mix n Match- Print CRAZY!

Hiiiii pretty people of the internet.... happy Tuesday! I am very excited about today's post which is all about mixing prints. Oh I can just hear some of you cringe! But YES lovelies, it is totally ok to now mix and match crazy prints! I have seen this happening a lot in fashion magazines lately and I have absolutely fallen in love with this trend. I honestly never even considered matching bold prints together because I thought it was just a major fashion no no...well, safe to say I am definitely going to be mixing prints from now on! HELLO FUN FASHION!

Ok, I am obsessed with this outfit. It's so cool and chilled out but so fun. That blouse to me looks like some sort of animal, maybe a dog or horse? either way I ADORE it, I think a funky print of dogs or something is soooo cute. and look at that skirt! another crazy print, but goes so perfectly with that top. Mix and match A+
 
 
Ahhhh! Now this, this is my favourite. I think these two prints look so perfect together, and I love how it is sort of a mix of contrasting colours. These prints look really polished together and add a really girly feel. They are both super busy prints but look how well they go together!
 
I LOVE the look of mixing a classic, neutral vertical stripe piece with a vibrant crazy print. This look is sophisticated but oh so fun! The top is very simple and neutral so it is totally ok to mix it with a bold coloured print skirt like the one above! LOVE!
 
 
And lastly, I thought this was a cool picture to show because it shows you can mix multiple prints together and still keep the look very toned down and simple! This gorgeous street style lady is mixing together a total of 4 prints! Crazy right?! Her shoes are very casual but are printed ( I can't tell what type of print but it looks like bows or something?), she has a light flower printed wash jean which is great because the light wash tones it down a bit, again we see a classic NEUTRAL vertical stripe top, and then she has a funky polka dotted scarf which is a bit vibrant then the rest of her pieces to add an extra pop! All of these colours and prints blend together perfectly and I think this is such a cool outfit.
 
 
 
Well lovelies I hope you enjoyed this post! What do you think of mixing prints? Love or hate? And which look out of these 4 is your favourite!? Tell me in the comments below!

Meet The Blogger

Hiiiii my pretty people of the internet! Hope you all are doing lovely things in this lovely world today! I was thinking of what type of blog post to do next and it crossed my mind that I actually haven't made a real blog post about myself, so I thought it was about time! Here we goooooo...

 
I'm a silly, free spirit 17 year old girl from good old Canada...
I love everything glitter, gold, girly, pink, pearls, lace
I like to laugh... a lot. I truly think it is the best medicine
I am in love with life. I try to seize every minute of it as I know it can be taken away any second (so cliché. I know, i'm embarrassed too)
I am a total obsesser. If I like something....I realllllly like it.
I love a wide range of music, but I always will have a special place in my heart for cheesy pop ;)
One Direction is my favourite, i'm totally not even ashamed.
I also love Little Mix, Girls Aloud, The Saturdays, Ellie Goulding, Lana Del Rey, The Lumineers, Mumford and sons, Beyoncé, just to name a few. (trust me, there is a lot more)
I have been through many hardships, all of what has made me the strong person I am today ( I may do a blog post on some of these times later on, but right now I am just not ready)
This year, I found a friend who inspires me daily, inspires me to be a better person, and to be the best version of myself I can be. Her name is Sarah, she has a blog too. (click here to see it) I have been looking for a friend like this for a long time....and it seems to have just fallen in my hands.
Ever since me and her have become close, I have been happier. I can't thank her enough for this.
I want to do something big with my life. I love performing.
Singing, acting, dancing- these are all things I would love to pursue, and I am going to make it happen. I have to
I am in my last year of high school (EEK)
I will hopefully be going to university, I am planning on doing a double major in Theatre and English.
 
 
I love a good book, reading takes me to this imaginary world and I completely get lost in it.
My favourite book is Perks Of Being A Wallflower. It really changed my life.
Chicken alfredo pasta is my favourite meal in the whole wide world.
I also love burgers.....
I love TV! I think there is nothing cozier then sitting at home in your PJ's all cozy with a nice cuppa tea watching your favourite tv show.
My favourites shows are The Real Housewives (Orange county and New Jersey are my two favourite ones)
XFactor, Pretty Little Liars, Degrassi, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Million dollar listing, America's Next Top Model, and the list goes on.
My family means the world to me. I cherish them so much.
My mom is literally my best friend (other than my chummy sarah)
11 weeks ago a little joy came into my life, my first sibling! My little brother Chase. He is just a peach.
I love people who inspire me (*cough* Sarah)
I love listening to people talk about what they are passionate about.
I am obsessed with starbucks.. ugh how typical of me
I am obsessed with fashion, beauty and house décor.
I love antique shops
I love sitting in a cozy café.
I am definitely optimistic about a lot. The glass is always half full with me, not half empty.
I am ME, and I am finally comfortable with that.
I am confident in myself now and confident in what I love. I think that is important and I am so happy to have reached that point. (Ugh yes I am going to bring up Sarah again hate me if you want, but she has helped me reach that point.)
 
 
Well, I think that is enough for now! I hope you enjoyed finding out a little bit more about me! Tell me about yourself in the comments below! Or write a blog post about yourself and link it down below :)

Fashion Obsession: Boyfriend Jeans

Hello pretties! Today as I was shopping around in Toronto I fell in love with a not so new trend.... the boyfriend jean. For those who don't know this is a style that became popular last year in which a girl wears a pair of baggy jeans to look as though it is her wearing her "boyfriends jeans". So what does this mean? COMFORT! Goodbye skin tight skinny jeans..hello baggy comfy boyfriend jeans! Here are a few pictures I found online of my favourite ways to wear the boyfriend jean.

 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
Who ever thought you could be completely fashion forward, fancy AND comfortable?! What do you think of the boyfriend jean? Totally trendy? Or totally not? Let me know in the comments below!
 
HUGS! xxxxx

Hair Obsession: Messy Bob

Hello pretties! A beauty post today! Yay! So recently I have been obsessed with a certain hairstyle..this hairstyle is the messy bob. When I was younger (I want to say early early teens or right before my teens) I always had my hair very short, and one time I wanted to be very risky and get a super short "bob".. it turned out awful and was not what I wanted so I have been scarred ever since and have kept my hair super long. I think I may keep my hair long for another year as I have prom this coming June, but after that it may be time for a risky change. Lately I have seen photos on tumblr and such of these messy bobs and I am in LOVE. I am not a fan of a clean cut all length crisp bob, but these uneven, messy jagged ones look so fashion forward and hip to me!

Here are some of my favourites that I've found on the interwebz

 
 I guess this is a bit longer than an actual "bob" but I looove this hair style, it's choppy, messy... love! Alexa always rocks this hair amazingly.
 
 

I think this style of bob is fantastic. I love how it is a bit longer on the side that her bangs are, and again it is super choppy and jagged. It would be a completely different look if the hair was cut perfectly even and straight.
 
I saw this photo on tumblr and I think this is what got me started on a messy bob. Again I LOVE how it is a bit longer on her bangs side, and again you can tell even on the other side the hair is not cut perfectly even. It makes it look a lot edgier.
 
 
I came across this photo online and I thought it was a great one to show because it shows all angles. This is called a graduating bob. I think it's a bit dramatic then the other ones if you look online. You can see from all angles the hair is cut in layers, and at different choppy lengths. It is not a straight across clean cut bob.
 
 
How do you feel about the messy bob? Tell me below! Do you have a specific hairstyle you're obsessed with? Be sure to comment that as well!
