Tips to Look More Fashionable

Have you ever looked into the mirror and thought, “Hmm my fashion needs work” or, “Maybe I should tweak my style a little?”. Well, I think this happens to most of us. Fashion can be tough sometimes, but not impossible to master. It’s not math Y’all, (Let’s see the hands of those who hate math and think it’s difficult Aka me). Looking fashionable, is not all about buying the most expensive Versace pieces or wearing the latest trends, it can be very simple, easy and affordable.fullsizeoutput_1387Here are some Tips that have helped me through the years to look more fashionable.

  1. Try something new – Yes, if you’re tired of looking the same all the time, the answer? Try something new. No, I’m not saying you should completely go out of your comfort zone, but try something new that you’re comfortable with. So if you’re someone who constantly likes to wear black maybe try wearing bright blue for a change? Change is always good. Start small and work your way up.fullsizeoutput_1386
  2. Wear Sunglasses – I find that adding sunglasses to any outfit just makes it pop and look 10 times more fashionable. Wearing sunglasses with my outfits makes me feel like I’m some rich lady who has her shit together and can conquer the world.fullsizeoutput_1385
  3. Wear a shoe that doesn’t match – I know you queens, like to match your red top with your red jeans, and your red shoes but sometimes, it’s good to switch things up. Pair your green dress with your purple shoes. You’ll instantly look more fashionable and chic. In these pictures I’m wearing  snake skin mules with a lavender dress which Clearly don’t match but I love it.fullsizeoutput_1389
  4. Wear your Jacket on your shoulders – I remember the first time I tried this and people were staring at me. Haha, that’s how you grab people’s attention. It’s like you’re wearing a cape but not really.fullsizeoutput_1388
  5. Wear your cross body bag in front – I find myself doing it a lot more these days. It just showcases the bag more and since my blue bag is my favourite, I find that I want to show it off more. I find that this makes me look more high fashion.

Other tips include :Playing around with sizes – Sometimes I like to wear oversized clothing whether it be a top or jeans. It just goes with a tomboyish vibe that I might be having that day and just makes me look super chicCheck your closet – It’s good to always peruse your closet. That dress that you had when you were 16? Maybe it’s time to get rid of it Susan. Don’t be a hoarder. Ask yourself “Do I really need this or even wear this? If the answer is “No”, get rid of it.If you think your style is fine then there’s no need to update it. These are just tips that have helped me in my personal life. You can follow them, or not, it’s up to you really.It seems like the dress that I bought, is sold out but you can shop a similar one HereWhat other tips are there out there that can help someone become more fashionable?

Crochet Fashion

One thing that is clear about me, is that, I love to express myself through my fashion. One day, I might be feeling really dark and I’ll decide to wear all black and the next day I’ll be feeling like a hippie and you’ll see me wearing a long crochet dress. The best thing about fashion, is that you can be anyone, you want to be. It’s the best feeling ever!

Today, I’ll be talking about Crochet Styles. Yes, crochet isn’t just about that hat that your great Aunt made for you, when you were 5 years old or that cover up that you wear to the beach. You can throw on a crochet top with jeans or a crochet skirt with a T- Shirt. It’s all about taking risks this summer.

Yes, crochet is in style. This trend is very simple and easy to wear. Most people think that you can only wear crochet to the beach but that’s simply not the case. You can wear crochet styles to a bbq, festival or on a cute date.

This weekend, my friends and I decided to go the TD Irie Fest in Mississauga, Canada. The festival showcases the Caribbean Culture. They had Caribbean food trucks, Jamaican clothing and reggae  music playing. It was so much fun!

IMG_5687

Before the festival, I wondered what I should wear. I wanted to look Caribbean, so I started perusing the internet looking for things. After looking at Forever 21 and other websites, I went to Zara and saw that they had a sale. I was so happy! I then saw this crochet  top and skirt on sale  and I decided to get it. I felt like the skirt and top really captured what I was going for.

IMG_5694

I liked the fact that the skirt and top were black but it had the Rastafarian colours of red, green and yellow. It reminded me of Jamaica (where I’m from), so much. I felt very cool and artsy. I felt like i was representing Jamaica.

IMG_5696

It was a very chilly day, so I decided to wear a denim jacket over the skirt and top. I wore sneakers that night because it rained during the day.

IMG_5699

The thing that I like the most about this outfit, is the simplicity. I don’t feel like I’m trying too hard and it was fit for the occasion. I felt like I took a risk with this and it paid off because I don’t normally wear things like this.

IMG_5688

I’m just trying to have fun this summer and try new things. I really had a tough time last year with my mom being sick, so now, I’m just trying to take everything in, explore, meet new people and just enjoy every moment.

T- Shirt Dresses

I’m not the type of girl who loves to wear tight clothes. Yeah, I’m weird. I think we can all agree to this. I used to though. I was the girl in the tightest high waisted skirts at church or the tightest dresses, where sometimes I couldn’t even  breathe properly. Now, I’ve changed.

fullsizeoutput_1039

I still wear some tight clothes occasionally but they’re never my first choice. Tight dresses just make me feel uncomfortable. I feel like I just want to  tear my clothes off and run around naked. You know what I’m saying?

fullsizeoutput_103c

I also don’t want guys to be staring at my boobs. I know lots of girls love that, but I don’t. I want to be liked for my personality, not my physical appearance.

fullsizeoutput_1038

So my solution to my problem is to dress like a tom boy sometimes. I got into wearing T shirt dresses after seeing Rihanna wearing it. I thought, “That looks so badass!”. So I decided to purchase one about 2 years ago and I’ve never looked back since. Haha.

fullsizeoutput_103a

T shirt dresses are very easy to wear. Throw one on and you’re good to leave the house. Ya’ll know how much of a lazy dresser I am, so this works perfectly. I don’t want to be zipping up anything or putting on jeans. Yikes!

fullsizeoutput_103d

I also like the fact that T shirt dresses are so chill and laid back. When I wear this I don’t feel like I’m trying too hard. I feel very relaxed. You can dress it up with heels or dress it down with sneakers.

fullsizeoutput_103e.jpeg

I chose my caged Justfab heels to wear with the dress because they made me feel badass. I also wanted to show my edgy side. I felt like I was Rihanna for a day! Fam, do you know how great that feels?

I’m all about dressing comfortably. If I can’t be comfortable, then what’s the point?

I’m not bashing people who like to wear tight clothes. Do you! But this is me.

Be your authentic self, always.

This dress is from Zara. It’s really affordable and I love the slogan on the front of it. You can shop it Here

How I find the Time to Blog

I have a full time job. I work 5 days per week from 9am – 5pm. I also have a household to take care of. So, how in the hell do I find the time to blog?

Processed with VSCO with q2 preset

Well, it’s not easy, I can tell you that. It looks easy though. Right?

I’ve always been interested in starting a blog. I read so many blogs and magazines on a daily basis, so I thought, why not? And I love fashion and I love taking pictures so it’s the perfect fit.

People think that blogging  just entails taking a bunch of pictures and that’s it. Well, it’s not sis.

Processed with VSCO with m2 preset

The pictures have to be edited and you have to find topics to talk about. You have to find the right editing apps because not every editing app makes you look good or makes your content look appealing.

My Sundays are basically dedicated to creating content for the fashion part of my blog. Sometimes, I try to take multiple pictures of different fashion looks to post. I wake up, eat breakfast and from there I put on makeup and decide what to wear that day. Creating content on Sundays means that I don’t get much time to go out with friends and stuff like that.

Processed with VSCO with q5 preset

Creating content takes a lot of time. What I try to do these days is write down a list of topics as they come, so that I have inspiration to write. I’m also trying to plan my looks from in the week before Sunday comes so I don’t have to stress.

Processed with VSCO with q4 preset

The beauty part of my blog is probably the easiest part because I have a lot of beauty products.

I want to be a successful blogger and one day get paid to blog. In order to do that I have to put the time and effort into this.

Processed with VSCO with l2 preset

Yes, I’m tired on Sundays and sometimes in the week, I just want to go to bed. But my mama taught me that anything worth having takes time and effort and sacrifice.

You have 24 hours in a day, why not use that time to develop that talent that you have, or that passion that you’re sitting on? Beyonce does it. Why can’t you too?.

Outfits : Spotlight on Dungarees

In Canada, the weather can be very volatile. Recently, we’ve been having somewhat warmer days, as recent, as last week. Dungarees, are a great option for this transitioning weather. They’re long, so if it gets cold, you won’t be freezing and they’re very versatile.

Processed with VSCO with l10 preset

The ones that I’m wearing are from Asos.com. They’re made of polyester and they’re very comfortable. Throw on a T- Shirt underneath and you’ll look like one of the cool kids, or add an off the shoulder top and you’ll look like a bohemian babe.

Dungarees are making a comeback this season and I’m here for it.

 

I chose these black ones because black, is my happy colour and I feel like my best self wearing black.

You can wear these to brunch or on a hot date with your man. They are very effortless and fashionable and you won’t break the bank trying to purchase one of these.

 

I bought these about 4 years ago, but here’s a link to purchase similar ones : Asos.com

Here’s to living our best fashionable lives!
