Alexa Chung for AG Jeans

Hey girls,
 I was on Polyvore, and I saw an image that had to do with Alexa Chung's collab with AG jeans. I decided to visit the site, and when I saw the collection, I knew that it was a good idea to look at the site! The clothes were fun and fresh, and despite being mostly denim, I felt like they varied in a lot of ways. I have always admired Alexa Chung (hello, Vogue!), and this collection with AG Jeans made me respect her more. I feel like she will have a very prosperous career as a fashion designer.
 In the collection, there were a lot of denim pieces that I really liked in the collection, as well as other, not made of denim pieces. You can find the collection here.
 So, here are some of my favorites:

 One of the reasons why I love this dress is because I like how simple yet complicated it is. I feel like the dress juxtaposes with itself. The simplicity of the dress is found in the lightweight denim with the sleeves, but the complication is found in the designs of the dress ON the lightweight denim. I know, it sounds confusing, but this is what I saw when I looked at this fabulous dress. It can be found here.

 I like this sweatshirt a lot. I really, really like it because the simplicity of it is pretty. I like the clean white with the navy in the middle. I would wear this in a variety of situations with a variety of clothes, from boyfriend jeans and blazers to skinny jeans and strappy sandals. It's a chunky sweatshirt but not too chunky, which I like. You can find the sweatshirt here.

 These shorts are stylish without a doubt! They are high waisted, which I really like, and the length isn't typical but I have found it very practical for an outfit. The wash is perfect, and I love love the frayed edges. I think they are kind of country-chic, which I like. You can find the shorts here.

  Everything about these jeans screams AMAZING! The length, the wash, the fit, the strategically placed (and cute and delicate rips, not those huge, holes-everywhere rips) rips in the knees, everything. And speaking of everything, everything would go with these jeans. Pointed toe flats (yay), heels and pumps, blazers, tunic tops, infinity scarves, empire waist tops, ankle booties, sweatshirts, crop tops, everything. I mean it. You name it, and it probably works with these totally amazing (and adaptable) jeans. You can find these beauties here.

  I love this dress because it is very unique. I love the overalls effect of it, and I like the color, too. Usually, I don't exactly lean towards olive green, but with this dress, I would totally give it a try. The color is bold without trying, and I like that. And you can wear a cute top, either solid colored or patterned, and it would look great with this dress. You can find it here.

  All I could think of when I saw this piece was: so many ways. And by that, I mean: so many ways to wear this shirt. I have always loved plain white t-shirts because of how they can be styled very nicely with a lot of pieces (including the dress above). I was drawn to the cut and simple white color of the shirt, and this would be a very essential closet staple for me. You can find it here.

 I love these pieces, and you find so many more in their collection! I think that Alexa Chung did a great job in this collection. Reviewing my favorites made me love them even more!

Shoe Crush: Dolley Flats

Hey girls,
 Another shoe crush today! Yay! This time, I'm not thinking toward heels... I'm talking about flats! Flats are really adorable and they can look really chic with a cute outfit. I especially like pointed toe flats, so that's what I'm going to be featuring in this post.
 When I saw these shoes, I instantly thought: midi skirt. Why would I think such a thought, you ask? Well, part of it is because I think the weirdest things at times when I am looking at shoes. Ha ha. Just kidding. I thought of midi skirts because I think these flats would go great with midi skirts because of the outfits that I have seen with midi skirts and pointed toe flats that I have loved.
 OK, enough with the blabbing, time for shoes!

 Do you see how divine these shoes are? I could go on and on and ON about how pretty they are, how the ankle strap is totally fetch (you're welcome Gretchen Weiners), how they so elegant overall, etc. I love how there is a break between the back of the shoe and the covering for the front of the foot. The space in between is very classy. I just think, in their own way, these shoes are very elegant, and can be pulled off quite excellently with a midi skirt, like the amazing outfit in this picture:

How great is this outfit?!
 Anyway, back to the shoes. Those shoes are super cute, not to mention very versatile. From a floral midi to a pair of darkwash jeans, these shoes can put the fun in functioning, in terms of an outfit!

Midi Skirt + B&W Accents

Hey girls,
 First, I want to say that I am so so sorry for not posting in the last few weeks. I have been so busy with the end of school and various activities that came up that I didn't have much time to blog. Believe me, I hated that so much, and whenever I thought about my lack of blogging, I got a horrible feeling. I would vow to blog that instant, but something would come up and I would forget. I'm really sorry, so to make up for that, I have an outfit, partly designed by me!
 Since summer is fast approaching, I decided that something light and airy would be best for this outfit. Skirts definitely fit into that category, so I decided to feature a skirt that I sewed. I love the smooth feel of the fabric, and when I saw it, I knew that I had to get that fabric. One thing about this skirt is that it features different lengths, which I totally love.
 Now, to the outfit!

Skirt: handmade
Flats: Wet Seal
Tank: Justice (I don't usually shop here, but this cami looked OK with this skirt)
Necklace: handmade
 The reason why I like this skirt is because of the reasons I mentioned above, but also the feel of it when I'm wearing it. It feels so light and airy and I love it! I wore flats with it, but heels could definitely work with it as well.
 I also like how  the black and white complement the skirt. The necklace I am wearing is cute and fun because it not made of metal, gold, or silver. It is actually made of ribbon and I tied it to make a necklace! I really loved it when I put it on, so I decided to wear it with this outfit. The tank contrasts nicely as well with the skirt, which I very glad about. :)
 So, how do you like this outfit? Tell me your thoughts in the comments below!
