STYLING PENCIL SKIRTS SERIES - LOOKBOOK VIDEO



Hi guys! How's your week going? So I've posted up the look book for this series: How to style pencil skirts. I really wanted to make a video on this topic to show that pencil skirts can be cool & versatile. Although most of the looks in this lookbook are dressy, you'll notice that little details here and there in the construction of the skirts and styling help re-vamp the entire outfit; thereby, creating a refreshing look.

Well, I hope you guys enjoy! Please leave me some feedback and any video ideas you'd like to see! See you in my next post!

STYLING PENCIL SKIRTS SERIES | OUTFIT ONE


Hi guys!
Yes, it's really me. I'm back. Yaay! So... a lot happened during my very infamous hiatus: I finally graduated uni, tried crochet braids, got engaged, and I'm turning 21 next week! Yay me. Okay, so I'm just kidding about the getting engaged part. Lol, sorry.

Nonetheless, I'm happy to be blogging again. I'm coming with a blog series showing you why you should rock pencil skirts more often and exactly how you can do that! And for added bonus, I'm making a video so you can actually see these outfits in motion.

Most times, we associate pencil skirts with just workplace outfits but throw them out for off-duty looks. We're not only going to discuss the popular jersey pencil skirts, but we'll also discuss pairing pencil skirts in unexpected and fun geometric cuts, colors, lengths and textures. I'm super stoked to show you guys what's in stock for you in the upcoming posts.



In this outfit, we're playing with a green monochrome color palette. Instead of wearing the same shade top to bottom, try pairing a lighter and darker shade of the same color. This instantly creates some interest and dimension to the outfit, thus making it less dull and plain.

Another trick to this outfit is the gold snaps on the side of the skirt. You guys have seen this pencil skirt in one of my previous posts. My other favorite thing about it, aside from the bright color, is the gold snaps on the side. These are perfect for that extra spice I'm talking about. You can tone embellishments like this down with neutrals for a daytime appropriate look, or highlight them with other metallic accessories for a night out! 

Also guys, get creative and try some DIYs! Take a trip to the dollar store or your local fabric store, purchase some bling you like, go home and create your very own piece however you like it! You can even try adding some tassels, fringe or feathers to the edges of your skirt, if you like. That's the fun part about DIYs: you truly get to create whatever you want! :)

VALENTINE'S DAY LOOKS | 2015


Yes, this is actually happening, so nope you're not dreaming! I really miss blogging and making videos. Filming and editing this made me realize that this is my favorite thing to do! 

There are three looks in this video for different types of Valentine's Day activities/events. I feel like most videos on Valentine's day looks style dressy looks that are more appropriate for warmer climates. Now, I LOVE to dress up, but... in reality there's only a handful of occasions that I dress up for, except Sundays. So I'm here for y'all who feel like me. I got you! I hope you enjoy this video as much as I did filming and editing it.



Thank you to my friend Nyiha for helping me film. Thank you for being so patient with me and taking all my directions without punching me in the face. Haha. You are the best!
