There’s no outfit I enjoy more than jeans and a tee and if that tee so happens to make a statement well then heck! I remember as a kid I used to sit around and think about what life would be like if we walked around naked and clothes were strange; didn’t we all? I wonder though if we weren’t so shy about our bodies and much more open about sex and nudity would we have the same awful things happen to women like sexual harassment either physical or verbal? There are many other cultures where women and men both wear practically nothing and are not sexualized the same. Instead of the body being this erotic piece of meat, they are looked at solely as a life giving source. These women make babies, feed them from their breast openly without hesitation and do all their daily work while the girls hang out. I used to work at Joe Fresh and we had a complaint from a woman that got kicked out of a change room because it was needed for someone to try on clothes, meanwhile she was trying to find a quiet spot to feed her child. I had never been so appalled that someone I worked with would do that to a woman in a vulnerable state. And on the other hand I’m sad how women have been ‘trained’ to hide the act of breastfeeding and either put a blanket over themselves or go to a washroom or change room in this instance. I’ve seen women whip it out with no coverage and men stare. MEN!

I’ve only worn this shirt once, and that was for this photo shoot/video I took for my Youtube channel. Isn’t that wild that I feel nervous to wear a shirt with boobs printed on it!? I’m just afraid of the stares and comments I’ll get.

I’m going to stop ranting now, I just had an opinion. Can you tell me if you ever thought about a world where we were naked and clothes were weird? Like somewhere in middle school, or was it just me?

Mellow Yellow: the colour of summer 2018

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.

I have this obsession with oversized tee’s and the way that guys wear them. The last guy I dated always wore plain tees, usually black, with the sleeves rolled up. I didn’t realize how much that inspired me until I bought this tee, in a size larger than I normally would have. I also don’t generally buy/own tees, let alone graphic tees, but I felt this one was a good leeway into buying more as the colour and print are pretty subdued.

These pants were last seen many posts ago. I wore them a few times after I distressed them but then again folded them into the back of my closet. So, true to self to make things ‘wearable’ again, I brought out the scissors. I’ve seen these jeans everywhere lately, cut off and frayed at the bottom; thus I’ve since gone and cropped  (taken scissors to) a bunch of other jeans I don’t wear. I love the way they look with a short heeled bootie, strappy heels and/or strappy flat sandals.

I am obsessed with these vintage Levis boyfriend shorts. Finally the style is in this summer because not everyone has been a fan of my shorts since I bought them many years ago while thrifting. I clearly forecasted the trend of Levis along with the boyfriend short being a popular style for S/S14! I also plan on making a few more pairs after sifting through vintage stores for old Levis Jeans to chop up.

I knew Instantly when I saw this sweater at Joe Fresh I had to have it and pair it with these shorts. I also love it with my boyfriend jeans (last seen here). Because it is so casual I threw on lots of glitzy costume style jewellery with a stacked wrist party and statement necklace, as well as a dressier sandal to vamp up the overly casual vibe. This sweater is a definite play of the Kenzo one that has been ever so popular. If you are in love with it as much as I am but can’t see yourself splurging on a pullover, this affordable Joe Fresh version is just as fierce and so cozy; I have yet to take it off since purchasing.
