How to wear green for St.Patrick's Day

I love going into my closet and finding different ways to wear my clothes. It feels so amazing to discover new outfits that I had never thought of before. There is no specific way on how I go about picking my outfits, they are defined by the way I am feeling that day. Sometimes I feel like wearing bold colors and sometimes I want to stay under the radar with neutral or dark colors. It always takes a few trying on of outfits to feel comfortable but stylish at the same time.

That is what I want my blog to be about. I want to help YOU discover new outfits with the clothes you already own. Maybe someday I will actually show you with pictures but I don't have the wardrobe I wish I had yet so I will be showing you through my drawings. I tried to make them more realistic and artistic this time around compared to my last post.

St.Patrick's is just around the corner so I thought I would start by giving you ideas on what to wear while still looking fashionable. I think green is a hard color to pull off for some people so I hope my style guide helps. Just remember that there are a lot of shades of green out there, you don't have to wear kelly green to celebrate this day. You could wear olive or mint or any other green that you have in your closet.

1. Sweater
If you happen to have a green jumper or pull over in your closet this is the outfit for you. This outfit is perfect if you are just doing something casual or maybe if you're not doing anything but want to be a little festive. I would pair the sweater with a white button-up shirt which I would hope most of you have in your closet because that is a wardrobe essential. I love how it looks when the white button-up pops out of the sweater, it just gives the outfit a little flare. Another wardrobe essential that you should have in your closet is a good pair of dark denim jeans. The jeans make this outfit casual and very comfortable but at the same time it still looks stylish. For shoes I would wear some leopard flats because leopard and green look really good together, but if you don't have flats with that pattern you could wear black flats or any other shoes that you think would match with your outfit. I would finish off the outfit with a chunky gold necklace and bracelet.



2. Skirt
If you randomly have a green skirt in your closet, this is the outfit for you. It could work with any skirt from bodycon to long and flowy. This outfit is good for those of you that are planning to do something a little bit fun that requires some dressing up. If it is too cold that day you could also wear some tights under the skirt to keep you warmer. I actually happen to randomly have a green skirt in my closet so this is how I would wear it. This outfit is pretty simple, you must all have a white t-shirt laying around so grab that shirt and tuck it into your skirt. I would wear a faux leather jacket over that shirt not only to keep me super warm but also to give the outfit an edgy look. Any type of shoes would work for this outfit, you could wear black heels, flats, or even boots. Finally I would finish the look off with a long gold pendant necklace, it doesn't matter what the pendant is but I think as long as it is a long chain it will look good. You could also wear some gold bracelets and rings and maybe include some green jewelry and you are good to go.


3. Pants
There is probably a higher chance that you might have a pair of green jeans, whether they are dark, bright, olive, or mint jeans. This outfit is great for those of you that want to be comfortable but look chic at the same time. I would wear the jeans with a pair of ankle booties, they could be black but I think cognac would complement the green better. I would also wear a belt the same color of the shoes and tuck in a gray shirt into the jeans. A black blazer is another wardrobe staple piece, but you could also wear a cardigan or any type of sweater with this look. Finish it off with any jewelry that you wish to wear.


4. Shirt
If you don't have anything green you can easily go buy a very inexpensive shirt at any store. There are a lot of possibilities when it comes to wearing a green shirt but this is one of the ways I would wear it. This outfit is great for those of you that want to be comfortable and semi-casual. The black skirt makes the outfit a little bit more fancy while the black boots dress it down. I love wearing boots with skirts because they keep you warmer but let you show off the best part of your legs. To keep yourself warm add any color cardigan that you think would match with your outfit. Finish off the look with any jewelry that you want.



5. Scarf
If you don't have any green clothing you can easily find a green scarf in any store and just throw it on top of any outfit. This outfit is casual and warm but looks put together. I would wear the scarf as a pop of color with a gray coat to keep me warm. I would wear a plain white shirt underneath and some black pants accompanied by cognac boots for added comfort. This look is a little plain so I would finish it off with some great jewelry pieces to add a little interest and sparkle.




Finally if you don't have anything that is green and really don't like wearing that color because it doesn't go well with your skin you can either buy green jewelry or just wear a green nail polish on your nails. This would give you a pop of color and it would be inexpensive so you wouldn't waste that much money on something that you will only wear once.

I hope I gave you some ideas on how to wear green for St. Patrick's day, please let me know what you will wear and what you will do that day down below in the comments. If you would like me to give you any styling tips on anything please let me know as well. Stay tuned for my next post.

HAPPY ST.PATRICK'S DAY!

8 Ways To Wear A Little Black Dress

I won't start this entry with "We all have a little black dress" because honestly I haven't found a little black dress that I love yet, therefore I don't personally have one in my closet. However, I know a lot of girls out there have a black dress that they love and wish they could wear more often but they can't find anywhere or anyway to wear it. Today I will give you 8 ideas you can use to wear your fabulous little black dress. I drew the pictures below, I am not a fashion designer so don't make fun of my drawings. =(

1. POP OF COLOR
If you want to stand out, you need some color in your outfit. You can add a pop of color to your plain black dress. In the picture I drew I added red heels and a red clutch but you can use any color you want; from white, to pink, to yellow, etc. The possibilities are endless. You can also just add a colored statement necklace and keep your other accessories plain and minimal.




2. ROCKER CHIC
If you want to go for a rocker vibe you can add a leather jacket and some ankle booties to your outfit. You can choose a black jacket to keep your outfit dark and mysterious or you can add a different color to keep your outfit edgy. I decided to add a brown leather jacket and ankle booties in my drawing. If you want to accessorize you can add some spiked and studded jewelry.




3. CONSERVATIVE
If you want to wear your little black dress to church, work, family gathering, or somewhere where you need to be more conservative, this is the perfect outfit for you. You can start by wearing some dark tights under your dress; they can be plain black or patterned as long as the pattern is not too distracting. Then you can pair your dress with a nice blazer. Unless you are attending a funeral try not to make the blazer black however or else your outfit will be too dark. You can choose a navy blazer if you don't want to stand out that much, but if you are feeling brave you can wear any other color. Finish your outfit off with some black flats or heels.



4. BOHO CHIC
Feeling a little bohemian or hippie? This trend is about looking effortlessly put together in earth tones with splashes of color like orange or red. You would probably not think of pairing your little black dress with western boots but they look great together. Wear a denim jacket on top of the dress and add a light-weight scarf (I chose a red scarf) for added flare and to add more to the trend you can choose a scarf that has beaded details. The most important part of the outfit is your jewelry, this trend is defined by lots of stacked mix and matched jewelry so don't be afraid to show off your jewelry collection.



5. PREPPY
You can wear your little black dress to school as well. You don't have to wear it with heels, you can add some comfortable loafers or flats if you are planning to walk a lot. You can also pair it with any cardigan that you think goes well with your dress and flats. You could also even wear a white button down shirt on the bottom of your dress and cardigan to make your look more sophisticated and scholarly.




6. CLASSIC
If you want to be classy, you can wear your dress with a black bolero, ideally satin. You can also add some pearl necklaces at different lengths for added interest. Finish off the look with some black heels and you are ready for a glamorous night out. This outfit is simple but very luxurious.




7. CASUAL
You can definitely dress down your little black dress for a casual day out. Start by wearing a long flowy cardigan and cinch it at the waist. The cardigan can be any color you wish, you can wear a bright color to make your outfit pop or tone it down with a darker color. You can also pair the dress with some converse shoes for added comfort.




8. FEMININE LAYERS
Finally, you can use your dress as a skirt. Pair it with a feminine button up blouse and add a belt to make it look like the shirt is tucked into your "skirt". Finish it off with some nude heels to make your legs look longer than they are. If you like the top of your dress you can also use it as a shirt. If your dress allows it, you could wear another skirt on top of the dress or even some pants to cover up the bottom part and use it as a top.

Welcome

"Begin doing what you want to do now, we are not living in eternity" 
"The best way to predict the future is to create it"
When the clock hit 12:00am on January 1, 2013 and we entered a new year, I decided that this was going to be MY year. I love fashion and have recently been wanting to blog and maybe even make youtube videos (I am still debating that), so I decided to start this blog. I might use it, I might not, but at least I know I created it and it is here for my use. I also started exercising to get fit and I have had great results so far, like I said this is MY year and like my quote says above, I am going to do what I love this year.

 [UPDATE]
 I finally committed myself to making youtube videos and sticking to it. I was sitting on my desk watching a youtube video the other day, I don't remember whose video but they asked "If you could do anything that made you happy without worrying about money, what would it be?" I sat there and without even thinking too much about it I knew my answer was: YOUTUBE! I love fashion, and I am a graphic designer so I love being creative and what better way to combine design and fashion than to have my own youtube channel!

I pretty much could not live without youtube. I am subscribed to a lot of amazing people and they have become my television. I don't really watch tv, I watch Youtube. I love watching fashion and beauty gurus, but my favorite videos are vlogs. I feel like people on Youtube are more genuine than anyone could ever be on tv.

I have always loved videos more than photographs, while my friends always take pictures of everything, I always take videos of everything. My computer's memory always gets full because I have so many videos of my life that sometimes I don't know what to do with them (I still don't think I want to share them on Youtube, maybe someday but I'm not there yet).  There is just something very special about videos that can't be captured with photographs. I still can't believe somebody invented a way to capture moving pictures!

I want to start making outfit ideas, style guides, and lookbooks. They are essentially all the same thing, I just love putting together outfits with the clothes that I have in my closet and I feel like I just have basic clothes so I want to help those of you that don't have money to buy fancy clothes. My favorite fashion inspirations are wendyslookbook, evelina, and carahamelie03 from youtube. They always have the best outfits and I love their sense of style. I know I can't compare to them however, my clothes are not as amazing as theirs so the purpose of my channel will be to be able to relate to regular people like me. Welcome!
