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!

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!

Kate Middleton Fashion Series Part 2- Gala Fashion

Hello pretties! The Kate Middleton Fashion series has returned! If you haven't seen part 1 to this series click here.
This second part of the series is all about Kate's beautiful and elegant fashion when she attends gala's and events and is not in her proper "royal" wear. Let's take a looksey at some of my favourite looks!

Kate looks absolutely stunning in this gown, it is simple but absolutely GORGEOUS! I love the light lilac colour, and that jeweled belt adds the perfect royal touch. Kate has a very small frame but this gown falls perfectly on her and is not too overwhelming.. SHE wears this dress, it definitely does not wear her! Her hair with the gown is perfect as well, not too done up- she looks effortlessly beautiful.
 
 

 I think we can all agree that this colour is STUNNING on Kate, and definitely not an easy colour to pull off. The lace shoulders definitely add a beautiful but also risqué effect to this gown, and I love how the lace peeps through at the neckline as well in the cut outs on her waist which help show her tiny frame. Absolutely beautiful



 THIS DRESS...I CAN'T! IT'S OH SO BEAUTIFUL! Is it just me or does this gown have a mermaid feel? But in the best way! I loooove the pink/silver colour with a metallic "coat" over top if you will...and the cut out details are gorgeous! They are done perfectly so the dress stays classy and elegant and not rugged. And those chiffon shoulders....I love


This last look is definitely very simple, but beautiful. It takes quite the woman to pull of such a look like this. It could make a lot of people look very washed out since it is such a plain dress and also very long (sleeves and legs) with also a very high neckline. But Kate, as always makes it look high fashion. Even though this dress is very plain, it is quite stunning. The slit at the legs give it that extra unf, and the way it is fitted, yet still flows beautifully.
 
 
 
Well that is it! A few of my favourite looks Kate has worn. I hope you enjoyed the second part to my Kate Middleton fashion series! Next up..pregnancy fashion! What is your favourite look of Kate's from here? Or of hers to date? Let me know in the comments below!

Some Girls Are Just Born With Glitter In Their Veins............

Hello pretties! I am deciding to call you all pretty from now on? Is that ok? Today's post is about letting yourself SHINE, letting yourself SPARKLE. Some girls (and boys) are just born with an extra little sparkle in their veins.... a sparkle that deserves to be shown! Lovelies, do not hold yourself back. If you have ambitions, passions, dreams and goals- LET YOUR GLITTER SHINE! Make all those hopes and dreams a reality! Some of us want to be doctors, some of us want to be vets, secretary, teacher, and some, some just want to shine. Whatever your dream is, whatever your goal may be always remember to never hold back. If you are feeling this feeling of passion, a feeling that you need to make something of yourself, that is your glitter, your sparkle trying to be released into the world. If you have glitter in your veins, share that glitter with the world, let the glitter sparkle through your face like a disco ball. Everyone has a purpose in this world... it's our job as individuals to find our purpose and share it with the world. Be fabulous, be you, be everything you want to be because if you dream it can happen, it can.
 
What are some of your dreams? Big or small! Share them below...
 





Hugs xx

Fashion Favourite (male edition)- Harry Styles

Hello lovelies! Hope you are all well. Today's post is maybe just a tad bit of fan-girling.. but I will tone it down. My top male crush is most definitely Harry Styles. Unless you live under a rock where there is no access to music, wifi, tv, etc well then you must know who this is that I speak of. Harry Styles is of course from the band One direction, and I am of course obsessed with them...and him...especially him. But I am not going on about how I love him and the 1D boys but how much I adore his fashion!
Harry adds his own flare on everything he wears, and is definitely rocker chic, his casual every day clothing has an edgy not-to-try-hard-esque feel, and always just looks just so damn cool. He still keeps his preppy English boy style in his fancier event clothing, but always adds his own flair. 

Let's take a looksy at some of my favourite looks shall we?

Casual:


I love how he has a blazer but makes it very casual with a plain tee, beanie and jeans!
 
I love how he pairs a cozy cable knit sweater with a top hat! It instantly adds his own flair and gives it that edgier look!
 

 
 
 

Fancy:

 

 
 
 
Look at that jacket.... I DIE


 Love the pairing of a dark shirt, dark vest and dark jacket, dark pants but then with a little pop of colour just in the pocket with a white hankerchief!

 
 
 
 Ugh...excuse me while I SWOON! What do you think of Harry Styles' fashion? Which male has the best fashion in your eyes! Comment below!
