Holiday in the Mouse’s House

The mouse told a holiday tale, but the fox had eaten so much, he fell asleep. The owl and the otter stayed up late, waiting anxiously for Christmas morning.

I’m thinking of creating a comic strip or illustration series for my blog. Please like the post if you like this idea.

Love you all!

Sending you lots of holiday cheer.

5 Outfit Ideas for a Summer Wedding to Not Upstage a Bride and Still Look Hot in the Process

Hi lovely readers! Wedding season is well underway, and while it may have some of you shook with excitement as shown below, like me:

It may have some of you wanting to crawl into the nearest hole and die due to not having an outfit, being a bridesmaid, not having a date, not being in a relationship, being in close proximity to a bff turned a bridezilla…etc. As someone who has been in four quinceaneras and one wedding (not that many of my friends are married, but if anyone needs a bridesmaid hmu) I am here to make wedding season a little easier! The key? Looking hot without upstaging the bride on her day. 

Think elegant and sexy; no bodycons or crop tops, unless they’re paired with culottes. See below.

Truth be told, I am a sucker for weddings and a mild wedding crasher. I will cry at them all and will jump at the chance to attend them, whether my friendship with the bride and groom (or groom & groom, bride & bride) is questionable or not. I just love being around love. πŸ’•

Here are my 5 outfit ideas:

1. Midi dresss with tasteful slits

From Tobi.com

This gorgeous one is from the brand Tobi. You will look hot without trying too hard. This cut is is ideal because it exposes just the right amount of skin.

A choker, block heels, a clutch, and a kimono for when night falls are the perfect accessories.

From Target.

From Asos.com.

From Nasty Gal

By the way, right now everything is 50% off Nasty Gal’s website with code Get50. 😩

2.Drop Waist Dress with Pop of Color

By Tommy Hilfiger. On Macys.com

The same hemline makes it possible to show some leg in an appropriate way. This color is so summery and gorgeous too.

Pair the dress a clear, nude, gold, or floral encrusted clutch, strappy heels to elongate your legs and a coral lip for an additional complementary pop of color

From lightinthebox.com

3. Off the Shoulder or One Shoulder Jumpsuit 

From Forever 21.

A lot of people forget shoulder cleavage can be sexy. It’s not all about legs or actual cleavage.

From H&M

Lace up sandals or mules are a perfect shoe choice.

From DSW.

By Jeffrey Campbell. Sold at Urban Outfitters.

4. High Waisted Culottes & Crop Top

Found on Pinterest.com.

Crop tops can be classy when paired with culottes and dressy accessories. I think this is my favorite outfit out of this list. πŸ’•

These pairs are good culotte options:

From Asos.

Set from Forever 21.

5. Tuxedo Dress

From Tobi.com

Though this dress is certainly sexy, the long sleeves and tuxedo vibe make it dressy enough for a wedding. Gold accessories and a gold clutch would match the luxe vibe.

From Nordstrom.

From weddinghigh.com

Those are my suggestions & what I’d wear to summer weddings if I had been invited to to any. (Hint) Get married people! I need to wear these outfits!

If you are a bridesmaid and do not like your dress my suggestion is to customize your accessories to match your personality as much as possible so you’ll at least feel somewhat comfortable with the outfit. If you don’t have a date, wear a cute outfit & find one at the wedding!

Love you all!

Pajama // Lingerie Inspired Style

One of my favorite trends this season and honestly of all runway trends is pajama & lingerie inspired style. 

I’m definitely pining for a set like the one I drew above.

Is the Pajama Wrap Jumpsuit by Asos above not the cutest thing ever? 😩
We’ve seen this trend crop up before. Last spring it was a hit and this year more racier styles are taking over the trend. As noted by Vogue Italia, 

“Bra, briefs, garter belts and (lots of) body suits. Style is in the details…”

We’ve definitely seen the bralette and bodysuit trend for a while. 90s grunge style was embedded with racy punky babydoll dresses a la Courtney Love. 

I love the juxtaposition of a strong boot with a soft feminine lacy dress.

Super cute way to wear a bralette found on stylegee.com

The modern take on lingerie inspired dressing is fashion-forward as well. Apparently, the trend will continue to appear and give its fans something sexy to slip into fall/winter 2017. Vogue Italia also writes, 

The hues for winter 2017 lingerie include timeless black but also lots of burgundy (replacing classic red for Christmas) and pink-nude, more understated but still flirty.”

This outfit is life. πŸ’ŸπŸ‘

Lingerie Inspired style in Vogue Japan

Personally, I’m in love, and I can’t wait to wear this trend all summer. πŸ’ž

Fierce street style.

What do you think about it?

Love,

Hunt for the Perfect Jeans; Gap

res_1469997435667_1

I want to preface this “hunt” post by saying, none of my posts are sponsored posts. I’m telling you what I really think of each item, because I really care about fashion, blogging, etc. and I want to make my blog as real as possible. Otherwise, what’s the point right? I also love jeans, and want to know everything I need to know about them, find the elusive perfect ones, and hopefully help you find “the one” for you. πŸ’™

So I took my hunt for the perfect jeans to Gap, and I found some of the comfiest jeans so far, and some pretty cute outfits too. I love denim on denim and army jackets and vests paired with denim right now, as you saw in my previous post. I tried on two pairs, a skinny boyfriend jean and a flared bootleg jean. Here’s what I found:

The skinny boyfriend jean pictured above is so comfy and feels like it hugs you just enough, but not too much, unlike a lot of other jeans.

Pros

  • Versatility: You can literally wear these jeans all year, summer through winter.
  • Comfort level: You can wear them all day and still feel comfortable. I’d definitely wear these for ex. to Disneyland, when I’ll have to walk a lot, because they’re not constricting, yet you know you’ll still look cute.
  • Quality: I like that these jeans are pretty thick yet stretchy, unlike a lot of other jeans, which are thin and stretchy, and need to be replaced quickly.

Cons

  • They didn’t make my butt look wonderful, but hey, it wasn’t looking nonexistant either.

The flared/ bootcut jeans above, were also incredibly comfy and surprisingly cute. I usually don’t wear flared jeans but I thought, why not?

Pros

  • Wash: I love the dark indigo of this wash, and that you can probably put them in the washing machine over and over again and they will barely fade.
  • Flare: Like I said, I’m not that much of a flare person, despite being a 90s baby, I guess because I’m only 5’4, but I liked tbe size of this flare and the 70s vibes. They weren’t super long with the booties.
  • Comfort: Again, you could wear these all day.
  • Quality: All Gap jeans seem to be made of a resistant, good quality material.

Cons

  • I think they run a tad big, because my usual size 6 was a little loose. I guess that’s part of what makes them comfy. If you want your curves to be poppin, get a size smaller.

All of the items picured in this post are from Gap, except the DIY choker. Hope you enjoyed this post.

Love you all for reading,

Style Crush Sunday; The Inimitable Audrey Hepburn

tumblr_nzgw4s3MJB1qbilh4o1_1280.jpg

Nobody will ever have the same grace, poise, and innate stylishness as Audrey Hepburn. She’s a style icon for many reasons. Here’s the top 3 reasons I think why, even though I really could go on and on;

  • She basically invented gamine style and charm.Β What does gamine mean? According to WikiHow; “since the time of Audrey Hepburn (the original gamine), it has been used to describe a slim, boyish, doe eyed girl with mischievous and innocent childlike appeal.” Lovely and adorable; the loveliest funny face pretty much. πŸ˜‰β€
  • She was sexy without trying. She didn’t need to vamp it up to convey sex appeal. She was just naturally beautiful and knew how to highlight her best features, even though she didn’t have the typical curvy body that was considered most coveted at the time she considered one of Hollywod’s leading ladies.

tumblr_l265mbYLJv1qbilh4o2_r1_1280.jpg

  • Her style will never go out of style. Her staples; striped shirts, turtleneck sweaters, midi skirts, ankle pants, flats, loafers, and the color black literally look good all the time, on everybody.

Audrey, I love you. I will forever have a style crush on you!

It’s took me a while to post these, but here they are! I distressed them myself, applied patches, and personalized them. I’m into the patch trend this summer and I’m planning on stocking my Ebay and Etsy shop with more styles! I’m currently gathering supplies. πŸ˜‰πŸŽ¨

Stay tuned loves. πŸ˜‰βœŒπŸŽ¨β€

What makes chokers so chic? I think the fact that they’re part 90s, part it girl. Loving pom poms too. ❀

Happy Monday!

Remember, it doesn’t have to suck as long as you do one thing you love today.

Love,
