I’m A Sinner Series: Sloth Outfit

I'm A Sinner Series: Sloth Outfit

So I kind of recently just found out that I may have skipped around with the order of the sins…. but we’re all human right? I started thinking about the sloth sin and I couldn’t remember what circle it belonged. After some hard thinking, I remembered that in one of the beginning circles there was a place for those who never did anything with their life. Pretty sure that sloth would fall under that category since people who are lazy and procrastinate don’t get much done.

Even though this outfit is really simple and doesn’t look like much, you gotta admit that it looks pretty comfortable. I’ve been having a lot of days here recently where I try to dress up and look good but then I think about how nice it will feel to be comfortable so I just throw on a T-shirt. Also the bed next to the outfit looks pretty tempting. We all can admit to having really lazy days every now and then. I mean these days we are given the luxury of Netflix and comfortable beds, it’s kind of hard to blame us.

What I love about this outfit is how loose and simple it is. Just looking at it makes me want to put on the outfit and fall asleep. I love sleeping masks because they help shield light from my eyes and I just can’t sleep when I feel the slightest bit of light hit my eye lids. I also love the shoes because I absolutely love it when shoes have that fuzzy interior so they make your feet feel nice and comfortable. All of this sleeping and comfortable talk has got me all tired… I think I may go take a nap now.

Tribal Nation Series: School Tribal Outfit

Tribal Nation Series: School Tribal Outfit
Today I am starting the Tribal Nation series which is all about the tribal pattern. In the spring 2014 fashion week show, one of the trends for this spring was tribal. I think it is an interesting and very fun fashion trend that is very fitting for the spring since in my opinion, the tribal pattern looks better in brighter colors. When I think of tribal I think back to one of my childhood’s Halloween costumes where I dressed as an Indian because the dress had a tribal pattern. I am really excited to start doing outfits for this trend because the tribal pattern is very funky and it’s a lot of fun to play around with. I have been noticing the tribal trend in pretty much all of the stores I have been to recently. I already have four or five pieces in my closet with a tribal pattern, but I got them around the fall not so much to follow the trend but because I fell in love with the specific pattern.
I have also noticed the tribal pattern slowly creeping up among the halls at my school. I have been looking around at the clothes people are wearing and as the days go by, the more tribal patterns I see on shirts and tights. I can already tell that this spring I am going to see a lot of boho clothing at my school because along with the tribal pattern there are the head pieces and braids that the women wear on the hit show Reign. A quick tribal tip I wanted to share  with you is that you don’t want to over do the pattern, too much tribal can cause your outfit to look like a costume.
I decided to start off with a tribal outfit that is perfect for school. This outfit definitely represents my style and is the type of outfit you would catch me wearing at school. Two nights ago one of my friends sent me a picture of her outfit. The outfit had a burgundy cardigan with a navy blue blouse inside, and a long necklace. She said that she created an Allyson outfit. The day after another one of my friends came in with a black cardigan and a white blouse and said she created an Allyson, that definitely put a smile on my face. This outfit has an orange cardigan with a tribal blouse inside. I loved this blouse because of the fun colors and the sheer fabrics. I made sure to include blue pants and an orange cardigan because they were colors found in the shirt and it didn’t look like too much color. I added orange sperrys because it went with the cardigan and because for some reason I think they are a very cute shoe. The jewelry is orange and blue as well, I know it sounds like there is a lot of those two colors but if you look at the outfit it’s not over done. One of my favorite pieces in the outfit would have to be the book bag. I really love the pattern and the colors in it, I just wish I could find a book bag like that in the stores I go to. Are you riding the tribal wagon yet?

Simple Grocery Shopping Outfit

Simple Grocery Shopping Outfit by teen fashion blog featuring a leather bracelet

People know me well for always going shopping, but there is certain things I just can’t stand shopping for, groceries. Grocery shopping is boring especially since I don’t get to ride in the cart anymore like when I was little.  Sometimes if I was especially adorable that day the people at the bakery would even give me a free cookie. Now grocery shopping consists of me walking around aisles looking for food that I have seen a hundred times already, but the worst part is I can’t even eat it yet. The only excitement I get is when we get to the make up aisle. <> Every Sunday it’s a debate with my sister over who gets the “pleasure” to shop for food. If it was shopping for clothes, my hand would fly up as quick as Katniss Everdeen’s went up and say “I volunteer”. Of course I do get to go all the time because my sister doesn’t like shopping, she would rather stay home and do chores.

Something I always do before shopping is try to figure out what to wear. Some people don’t really care what they look like when they go out, but I never know who I could find at one of these stores. One time, during one of our shopping outings I was approached by a modeling scout. From then on, I knew I had to look good and dress like I’m trying to make an impression for that same scout wherever I go. I know, it’s ridiculous! I usually dress casual when I go out yet I like to keep it stylish at the same time. I created this outfit because it definitely looks like something I would wear to go out grocery shopping. The dress is a light denim material with a polka dot pattern on it. The dress has the overalls top, I don’t like that look but somehow this dress makes it work and it looks pretty. Especially like the neckline of the orange cropped tee that you can wear to fall over your shoulder. That little detail makes the outfit better because it’s not expected. The tights ties up the belt, purse, and shoes to the outfit. Plus, I’ve done some more pattern play with the polka dot pattern over a striped pattern. The lace socks over the boot and tights are super adorable and break up all the brown going on at the bottom. I used blue for the jewelry because there was already too much brown and orange going on, the blue helped break it up. There is certain shopping I like, and certain shopping I dread. What type of shopping do you like or hate doing?
