Fall Fashion Trends You Won’t See Me Wearing

I’m a trend whore!  Yes I am. As soon as a new trend comes out, I’m on it like hot chocolate and milk. Like bread and butter. Get it? But ,there are certainly some trends that you won’t see me wearing! Unfortunately, not everything looks good on me OK?

This Fall season is about taking being noticed and fierce animal attraction. All across the runway I see Neons, Animal prints, snakeskin styles…. so much to choose from! Here’s a list of the trends that you most likely will never see me in

1. Neon –  This one is just not for me. The only bright colours that I like are red and yellow. I just can’t see myself in Neon green and neon pink. I hate attention and this would be too much. Imagine me in neon orange. Yeah, I can’t imagine that either.

2.Animal print – Animal print is all over. I mean, every time I sign into instagram I see some influencer in animal print. It looks great on them but I can’t see myself in head to toe animal print. In fact, I don’t really like prints in general. Maybe I’d consider wearing an animal print bag or even a scarf. Little things you know?

3.Clueless Plaid – This trend looks really cool but too many bright colours for me. It’s just not my taste. I prefer normal plaids like red or green.

These are the trends that you will never see me in. I mean maybe one day I’ll change my mind but for now I don’t see myself in these things.

Never say Never they say.

A Day In The Life of A Blogger

I think I’ve said this countless times, “Blogging is like a second job”. It’s not a hard second job, it’s really fun,  but it’s a lot of work and effort. Instead of sleeping in, you have to wake up and plan outfits and write about them. It’s like your weekends aren’t yours anymore because they belong to blogging. But I’m happy, at least I get to immerse myself into something creative.

Today, I want to walk you through A day in my life as a Blogger.

AfterlightImage

So here’s how my day goes…..

1. I get ready – I wake up and take a shower. I used to take my blog photos early in the mornings in the summertime and I used  wake up at 7 am on Sundays, but now it’s really dark and ugly outside and I don’t want to spend hours editing my pics and adding light to them. So now ,I take my photos indoors, in my room to be precise. I start around 5 pm

2. I choose my Outfits – Look, I’m not one of those rich people who can afford to buy clothes all the time. I buy clothes occasionally for events. When blogging, I don’t necessarily plan my outfits the night before. Sometimes ,I’ll just walk into my closet and say, “Hmm, that pants would look great with that shirt”, and that’s how I come up with my outfits.And sometimes I get inspiration from Instagram. It’s all very random, it’s not something that I plan really. I always have one outfit for my blog, and I also take additional photos  of different outfits for my instagram as well.

3. I set up my Camera – I used to have a photographer, then my mom started taking my photos for me. Now, I take them by myself. So how do I take them by myself? I use my tripod, and I use my Iphone 7. I have a professional camera, but the focus on it is trash so now I use my phone. I also have a light in my room that enhances my pictures. And I put my phone on self timer for 10 seconds and I take a whole bunch of photos.

4 I edit my photos – Editing is not a long process for me. I use Afterlight because it has dust and I like the presets as well. It basically has everything that I like to add to my photos, and it’s really easy to use. Sometimes I use Vsco cam and Lightroom as well.

5. I blog – Coming up with a topic to blog about, is hard sometimes. I have a list of topics but sometimes it’s still hard to find one that fits.. I always do my blogs based on the photos I take. Maybe I should change that though. Sometimes I also find inspiration from other bloggers. It takes me an hour to blog, depending on what I’m blogging about but I enjoy writing. It’s one of the subjects that I truly enjoyed in High school.

This is how my Fashion blogging days usually go. This is a day in the life of Raceen, the Fashion blogger. It’s a lot of work but I know that one day it will pay off. And it’s actually things that I LOVE TO DO. I LOVE to write, I LOVE taking photos and I LOVE editing.

Blogging is the best.

One Blouse, 3 Ways

IMG_8308

“I have nothing to wear”. Have you ever uttered those words before? I know, I have. Sometimes it’s just hard to find clothes ok? I wish I was one of those rich,  celebrities who have an infinite number of clothes you know? Life would be so much easier! But, I’m not rich, so I have to make do with what I have. You can always make a brand new outfit out of the clothes, that you do own. Make it work girl. Today I’ll be showing you how I styled One Blouse in 3 ways.

 

So I bought this top about a year ago and this is how I styled it in 3 ways.

Blouse with Jeans

I styled the top with jeans from forever 21. These are some of my favourite jeans because it’s embroidered with pizza on it. It’s just different and I like different. This style can be worn on a night out with friends or a party. I purchased these jeans about 3 years ago, so they are sold out, but you can purchase similar ones Here. The blouse is from Zara but it’s a year old but you can find similar ones Here

Blouse with A Skirt

This look can be worn to church. The plaid skirt is from H&M. I really like this look because it’s very sophisticated. The green blouse  makes the outfit pop. The skirt is old but you can find similar styles Here

Blouse with Trousers

This look can be worn to the office. The pants are pinstriped and are from this local store called Suzy shier in my community. You change shoes and put on stilettos or flats.

Yes, so this is how I styled this blouse in 3 different ways. You don’t have to be rich or have plenty of clothes to look fashionable. You can work with what you have. Instead of spending money all the time to buy new clothes, just style the ones you have differently. It’s easy!
