I knew yellow was a huge prediction for the summer of 2018 but I personally wasn’t sure how I would take to it; apparently very well. I am currently obsessed with yellow in all it’s forms; warm, cool, mustard, sunshine, citrus and so on. At this very moment my nails are yellow and my go-to everyday sunglasses are yellow. Yellow is not for everyone and there are definitely shades of yellow that I can NOT wear, but holding up a yellow garment next to your face in the mirror will show you very quickly what yellow is your friend. For me it can’t be too cool or neon. I have to go with something more warm that works with my pinkish undertone.

I’ve found that yellow is one of those calm colours that can hold up to more vibrant colours like in the photo below with the red bag. I like pairing yellow with an intense pop of colour, it’s one way you can wear a lot of colour at once and not come off too “clowny”. I recently have been hitting up forever 21 for trends like yellow that I’m unsure will last very long. I’m a fashion girl on a budget so it’s nice to have stores like that to hit up for quick basics as well as try out the newest trends and see if they work for you.

My birthday is looming, yes I say looming because the years are flying by! I have a grey hair that won’t quit and some wrinkles of which I never believed would appear, but THEY DO/DID! Anyways, my birthday also reminds me that I get to spoil myself. Now that I’m an adult, I am allowed to spend my money the way I please. I think self love is super important so why not? I want to start a new tradition for myself of buying a piece of jewellery for myself each birthday. Jewellery is something I can collect and look at to remind me of the place I was in when I bought it, so I think this will be a special thing I do for myself. Agree?

There is nothing more comfortable (and stylish) to me than a good sneaker. I love that sneakers are a huge fashion trend that’s sticking around. I can remember when wearing sneakers with a dress or skirt was a MEGA fashion no no, but now it’s the s@#% (as long as it’s paired well of course). Every brand I click on these days while online “window shopping” has a ‘walking’, ‘lifestyle’, or ‘casual’ section because they know they have to cater to the stylish street wearability that is the sneaker trend. On my days off I like to kick it (get it) in sneakers most of the time because my feet are usually exhausted (server life). I can’t wait to get my feet into some of the sneakers I’ve been eyeing above this season. I love that brands are bringing back their classic styles with a twist. The platform trend has to be my favourite, mostly because I wear heels due to that fact that I didn’t win the lottery in terms of height, so the heeled sneaker has been quite a blessing. I think first on my list are the platform Keds canvas platform and the Reebok Classics. I’m really into those two styles at the moment and can see myself getting a lot of wear out of them.

How do you feel about sneakers and the fashion statement they’re making?
