Best of 2015

Best of 2015

 

Now that 2015 is coming to a close, it’s the time to look over the best trends of the year. This year was full of new surprises and old, innovative trends that were brought back to life. These trends blew up being worn by everybody and their mothers, and for all the best reasons. Some of my favorites this year would have to be capes, anything suede, over the knee boots, sneakers and turtlenecks (but they’ve never really gone out of style, have they?)

Winter Coat

We’re well into December and I still can’t believe it. This is the best time to bring out the coats we all love so much, so that’s just what I did. This season, coats are so popular. They always have been but somehow this season they have multiplied. Coats are one of the most chic items a person can have in their wardrobe. They are casual but classy which really is conveyed through a person’s outfit. Even better, a coat can be thrown over anything and it will automatically look chic; take the newfound sweats trend for example. ( Sweatpants, a coat, and sneakers: brilliant.) In my opinion, a structured winter coat can spice up any outfit and tie any loose pieces together creating a cozy but stylish look for the colder months.

Movie Studios and Fashion

So, I loved capturing these pictures outside of a movie studio in my neighborhood. Obsessed with my white solid walls (or in this case blue), stumbling upon this spot was perfect for my blog. These were shot after a fun filled day with not a lot of school but a lot of food (my personal favorite).

Everyday Pampering

Ok, so you’re usually used to seeing posts about clothes, but lately I’ve been a tad bit obsessed with makeup so I thought eh, why not? So here it is; a makeup post from yours truly. Now it’s nothing too special just a bit of what I put on my face and some of my favorite products, you know the usual.

So Benefit has become my new best friend. Their products are lifesavers and work magic. The contouring products have shaped my face like crazy and the paleness of my face has been concealed after 17 years.

So getting into skin and hair. Tarte’s amazonian clay foundation is amazing and the coverage is beyond. I’ve heard people rave about this for years and I’ve been using it now for about a year and I couldn’t be happier. Next up, St. Tropez. What would I do without you? The mousse gives me this natural glow that sadly takes tanning oil and hours in the sun for me to achieve (which frankly I don’t have time for) so this product actually saved my life. Moving on to hair, Argan oil and dry shampoo; probably the two basics when it comes to haircare. The Argan oil leaves my hair so smooth and silky it’s like I’ve stolen someone else’s and the dry shampoo, ah! it works wonders. That’s all I can say.

Alright lastly, just some extras I could throw in. The Mac Twig color is my new obsession and the lip balm I use is an amazing base. You see that healing balm next to it? Yeah. Greatest. Thing. Ever. I had no idea what it was when my mom introduced it to me but it’s literally a thick balm that smooths out dry skin and cuts. It may not smell like freshly cut flowers but it does the job so well. Lastly, the all too famous real techniques brush. This has honestly become my favorite thing because I no longer have to rely on my hands to blend anything EVER AGAIN. If I kept going I would have wrinkles at age 25 from how much i pulled my skin applying foundation. This brush is so soft, blends perfectly and looks really cute next to your other makeup brushes (just saying).

So obviously, I’m not in the full force work field just yet, but surprisingly enough, it’s my favorite kind of style. (With the pieces I like of course) I am not a pant suit type of girl at all! The way I dress now is what I plan to do in the working stages of my life. I love fun button up shirts and any kind of heeled boot is my achilles heel. (my wallet’ll tell you) Now, the bag. The bag I would say is the most important because it carries your life. I can imagine work is stressful so i’ll need everything in their to keep me sane, from food (obviously) to my planner. Don’t forget the laptop though, your bag must be big enough to fit that or else you’ll love traveling to and from work with bags upon bags on your arm. Now personally speaking, this could be a perfect work outfit for me, however everybody is different and being true to yourself is 100% the best way to go, so do you!
