Inspiration Monday: Oxidation

Inspiration Monday: Oxidation by Cardigans and Necklaces
I know what some of you guys may be thinking, “Hey she’s still alive! She didn’t get wiped off existence!” To further elaborate on that, I am still alive and yes I still exist. I’ll tell you guys what, 10th grade has sure been a step up from 9th and the pressure has been real. I’ve had so much work recently to try and focus on and it’s been difficult to try and create posts while keeping up my grades. I hit my second semester of 10th grade and time is flying by for me. It feels like just yesterday I was planning my outfit for the first day of school! I totally see what adults mean by saying that us teenagers grow up so fast. I even feel as if I’m growing up too fast, I really wish I could stop time and enjoy the now a bit better.
So to start off my first post in a good while I thought there would be no way better than with an Inspiration Monday! I’ve decided to use a picture of rust because I found this picture while doing some chemistry homework (we’re learning about chemical properties, such as oxidation). I thought the picture had this cool texture to it and I thought it would be fun to play around with metallic colors some more. Some of my favorite pieces would have to be the sneakers because they look absolutely stylish and you can style it in so many different ways! I also love the purse because of how well the texture of it matches the picture given.
Hopefully I will be able to start getting more posts in now that I don’t have an essay due a week because of my lit class, but I’m not complaining. I will confess to that class being my favorite class I’ve ever had and my lit teacher being the best teacher I ever had.

Tribal Nation Series: Bridal Tribal Outfit

Tribal Nation Series: Bridal Tribal Outfit

A lot of people tend to think that tribal patterns are meant for casual clothing, but that’s not the case. Tribal patterns can be used for more serious or elegant looks, it all depends on how a person uses it. Previously in the series I posted a tribal outfit that was appropriate for those who work in the office. That outfit had a tribal pattern in the skirt yet is still looked sophisticated. The thing about patterns is that they can be used for whatever kind of outfit you want as long as you can style it right.

I wanted to demonstrate to you guys how to incorporate the tribal pattern into more elegant outfits, so I created an outfit that would be perfect for a person to wear if they were invited to a wedding. I used a gray and yellow dress with a tribal pattern because I thought it was really pretty and it use the tribal pattern perfectly! I made sure to put a coat because depending on what time of year the wedding is on it could be cold. Plus I found that adding the fur coat also added some extra style to the outfit. The accessories are all yellow and gray to go along with the dress. The shoes are a pale gray as well because since there is already a lot going on in the dress and accessories, adding too much color or pattern to the shoe would look odd.
