Inspiration Monday: Vintage Color Shells

Inspiration Monday: Vintage Color Shells teen fashion blog

For this Inspiration Monday I decided I was going to create an outfit using shells because just this weekend I went to Lake Lanier and saw a few shells in the water that reminded me of this picture. Lake Lanier is a big beautiful lake in Georgia which had really clear blue water and amazing things to do there.

Lake Lanier was an amazing place to go and hang out. They have a golf course, a water park, the lake, restaurants, boat rentals, stables, and camping grounds. When I went to the lake I went with a few of my parents friends and we had a lot of fun. We went and checked out the boat show that was taking place while we were there and the shore a bit. We then went and chilled out a bit by the lake in this shaded area and played horseshoes. After that we went to a different part of the lake where there were tables and ate lunch there. We also went and walked in the lake and skipped stones across the water. I was able to skip it up to four times, which was pretty good for my first time. We also rode down a hill in a wheel barrel which was one of the weirdest things we did. It was a lot of fun to see the faces of some of the people who were going down. To end the day we went to this restaurant that had a lot of seafood and I got a piña colada and some crab legs that I became a pro at opening. I had so much fun and got to experience things I have not done before which was pretty cool.

I know that when you guys take a look at the picture and then the outfit you may think that it did not fit and that you would have gone with something more nautical. When I saw this picture I thought of a vintage outfit for some reason, but I guess it may have been the colors that made me think vintage. This outfit is very 50’s inspired and girly at the same time. The dress is a brown like some of the shells and the starfish in the picture. Plus I used a simple color dress so that I could use colored accessories and it wouldn’t be too much. I also included pearls in the bracelet, earrings, and in the necklace along with a pink and green ribbon. I got the pink and green from some of the shells in the picture. I also incorporated pink in the gloves and the shoes. I also added a darker brown hat that almost looked like the orange shells. The purse I added because it had a lot of the colors from the picture and it tied all the colors together. I just love this outfit because it’s super chic and girly! I wish I could dress like that every day.

Style Cravings: Long Midi Skirt

Style Cravings: Long Medi Skirt

Trends have been known for been done in the past and  coming back into style. I can still remember those days when neon came back into style and every kid at my school looked like a walking traffic cone. I have been guilty for wearing a few neon colors myself back when the trends were cool. If you are more into the boho style look, then you are more into the late 60’s style which is more hippie like. Last semester my AP human geography teacher was talking about pop culture and he mentioned Vans and how it’s a reoccurring trend in pop culture. He even told us stories of how he used to skate and wear Vans while his pony tail would be flapping in the wind. I couldn’t help but laugh at the thought.

I have been on Pinterest a lot lately and I have been noticing these 50’s skirts coming up everywhere. I have seen these skirts and all I could do was think back to the movie Hairspray and Grease. I have always loved these big skirts because they are so feminine and girly yet very modest. Plus imagine how much fun it would be to spin around in one of these!  50’s skirts are known to have the little poodle at the hem of the skirt, but now a days people have thrown out the poodle and started modernizing the skirt. There has even been a few stars that have been caught wearing the 50’s skirt, such as: Kelly Osborne, Keira Knightley, and even Taylor Swift (which has been known for her vintage style).  I don’t think that teenage girls are going to be the main group wearing these skirts because we all seem to love our skinny jeans but I know at least one teenage girl that would love to own one of these. I have been looking at this skirt ever since I was smaller and I saw Sandy dancing with Danny Zuko at prom and her skirt was spinning everywhere. After I started looking at these skirts on Pinterest, all I could do was think back to the days where I would wear a skirt and spin in it just to see if I got the same effect as some of the girl’s on Grease’s skirts. This is definitely a look I am obsessing over and I am really hoping that I will walk into a store and find one of these skirts on the sale racks.
