I think we all can agree 2020 has been a RIDE to say the LEAST! I do think its funny though because despite us all having to stay home for most of the year, that has not stopped new trends from emerging! I LOVE fashion and trying new trends; putting outfits together in my head is probably one of my most fav things to do in the world!!! Thats why I’m SO excited to be working with rue21 on this post!!! Not only has it been crazy times out here in 2020, but its been crazy times financially for almost everyone!! Thats why I’m so happy that rue21 always carries the new trends at an affordable price!! Let me show you all the cute affordable trends I got to try thanks to rue21!!

MEMBERS ONLY #IAMAMEMBER

IMG_3580_Facetune_11-08-2020-22-16-32

For me part of fashion is self care! I think thats why fashion has a big part in altering my mood! It can bring out my spunkiness, or my calm side, and all the sides in-between really! Thats why I LOVE  Members Only!

I remember getting my first Members Only jacket at my first big girl job. That job was in a predominately male dominated industry. It was so easy to get pushed around, I learned that pretty quickly! I used little things like walking into meetings wearing my Members only jacket to bring out my inner badass!

IMG_4069Bring out your inner badass in a Members Only jacket too!! Click HERE to a link of the one I am wearing!!

IMG_4070

Hope you have a great day, and wear clothes that bring out who you are!!!

LOVE YOU BYE!

This ones for you because SEO hates this title lol!

I’m tired of people saying they can’t pull trends they love off! It is 2020 and that is not the energy we are bring into the new year okurrr!! I’m going to give you some  guidelines and tips that I follow when I decide what to wear, and also give you specific pieces that are good go too’s!

GUYS I LOVE CLOTHES SO MUCH! lolll its an issue! Also I feel like its really easy to buy something cute, but not so easy to pull of the “put together” look that finishes off your outfit! When I put together an outfit I follow either one of two guidelines.

Guide Line one: Maybe I have a piece that Im OBSESSED with like a new pair of shoes, some statement earrings, a top, or even a pair pants. I will pick one item I’m super obsessed with and BOOM make the whole outfit centered around that! Then in my head I will think of ways to style this ONE ITEM! Tackling it with this in mind makes for a cute outfit!

EXAMPLE BELOW! I wanted to highlight the dress so I paired it with more casual muted shoes and a hat that matched the shoes to make it a little more casual! Also I wanted to highlight the pants so I paired them with a muted simple top, but finished it off with a fun head band!

Guide Line two: TONES I stick to my TONES! Cool, warm, and sometimes in the summer even jewel tones. I pick one tone and go in that direction! I usually do this if there isn’t an item I’m trying to highlight or base an outfit off of! See examples below!

Tones! Wether it but warm nudes, Jewel blues, or darker tones they all complement each other and make for a cute outfit! Basically if you were to pull each color of your outfit into a little square, would they complement and look good next to each other? Or would they clash!? Thats what you should ask yourself if you’re ever unsure!

Here are some pieces you NEED in your closet, these are SUPER important when finishing off a look. An outfit go’s from cute to SO CUTE WHERE DID YOU GET THAT! All you have to do is finish it off by doing one or more of these things!

  • Jewelry

Guys its actually super important it finishes off a look. I used to be someone who didn’t not accessorize and ever since I started, it made a world of a difference!! There are certain pieces you need to have in your arsenal. You should have a go to dainty, goes with everything, SIMPLE necklace to start (in gold and silver), go to hoops (gold and silver), go to simple studs, and some basic rings that you can stack! These make your outfit look finished off, like you effortlessly thought through your outfit!

  • Hats

Hats turn BLAH outfits into WOW outfits! Its that simple!! They can make a Tee shirt and jeans look like you walked out of an Instagram AD lol!!  I’ve told you HOW OBSESSED I am with lack of color hats!! I saw this one in a store the other day and I literally carried it around with me and ALMOST bought it… I’m still dreaming of you but need one more week of saving! hahah But seriously hats complete outfits. They make everything come together, or BAM put one on and you are magically put together!! YOU need a good go to hat (I have a few) that you can throw on to take your simple outfit to the next level.

  • Head bands/Hair pieces

Talk about something that instantly elevates your outfit. Much like hats, BOOM you are automatically more put together when you throw an head band on, or tie a scarf in your hair! Its like magic! This takes minimal effort, it really is the little things!

IMG_7354IMG_6976_Facetune_06-01-2020-13-42-09

  • Bright/Big Statement earrings

EARRINGS are also an instant tie together!! This specifically works when you have a color you want to highlight in an outfit! Sometimes just adding an earring adds the WOW factor! Big fun earrings brings a confident appearance, and is sometimes the finishing touch in bringing your outfit to life!

A big part to all of this is CONFIDENCE!!! I’m a huge advocate of wearing whatever YOU like and wearing it proudly. When you take the time to put outfits together with things that you truely love there is no reason on gods green earth you shouldn’t hold your head high and rock whatever the hell you feel is YOU! There is only one YOU in the entire world and be creative follow these rules or don’t. Wear whatever speaks to you!

I love you!!

Torri

Hello!

Here we are again and I have some GOOD ONES for you!! Let me remind you what this is all about! Its about sharing AMAZING noteworthy, sunshiny, whatever you want to call things to Brighton your week! We have the following categories!

  • Song or Album
  • Movie, Series, Documentary, or Podcast
  • Item of Clothing or Accessory
  • Beauty Product
  • Quote of Week

 

Vance Joy

He is seriously the BEST!! I am OBSSED with every album he’s ever put out! “Dream your life away” is my FAVORITE album of his but I also LOVE “Nation of Two” !! His stuff is dreamy, super chill, and puts my soul at ease!! I love to listen to him when I’m relaxing, or getting ready for the day! It puts me in a good mindset, his music evokes clarity for me.

Beautiful Boy

This movie is so important, it perfectly and chronologically tells the story of addiction. It is BEAUTIFUL from start to finish. You will probably cry, and find yourself sucked into this true life story. Beautiful Boy is the most beautiful story about heart, tenacity, and a fathers love, through the devastating experience of addition. It gets ugly, and real, but its a mesmerizing master piece! You can watch is on Amazon Prime!

Mi.iM Shoes

EDB0A8AA-2BE2-4955-B467-9E9F6508707F

Okay so I just got these shoes for a sponsored IG post I’m doing but I am OBSESSED with them!!! They are kinda funky, but they add so much to everything you wear them with and they are still so neutral! I love  good statement shoe, and these go with so much more then I though they would!!

It Cosmetics Foundation!!

This is the holy grail of foundations!!! Its so moisturizing, but its not going to completely whipe off like most moisturizing foundations.I consider myself a connoisseur of foundations! You name it and I have probably tried it! This stuff is AMAZINNGG! It’s super buildable and its full coverage which is super important to me because I have huge patches of discoloration on my face. Sometimes I feel like its all people see despite others reassurance. So FULL COVERAGE without looking caked is a MUST!! I’ve been using this one for about a yearish and its everything you could want in an everyday foundation! Also IT SMELLS SO GOODDDD!!

Quote Of The Week

Courage is the ability to climb the highest mountain even when you are afraid, and it is

Also the ability to rise and keep going on the hardest of days.

We all can have courage, but it does not always look the same.

-Morgan Harper Nichols

Another piece of gold from MHN! I’m needing a lot of courage with the things going on in my life lately. This quote is a reminder that I am still showing courage and showing up even when it doesn’t feel like it. It takes so much courage to do the right thing when its hard. Those moments of courage are where change happens, or where people are made.

Anyway! I love you guys and I am SO SORRY this post was a day late!!

OKAY LOVE YOU BYE!!

 

 

Its the BEST time of year, FALL, also its the magical month of October!! This is my favorite month, probably. The weather (for the most part) is AMAZINNNGG! The clothes are to dye for, and PUMPKIN EVERYTHINGGGG! Its like the weathers way of waving good bye to summer, and its so special and beautiful! I LOVE watching the new trends emerge with every season change, and the 2017 Fall Trends have not disappointed, just look, and prepare to FALL in love! (<bahahhaha I am so sorry that was a little to much wasn’t it, I mean I just cringed)

Two words…Crushed Velvet I even like saying that, it makes me feel all warm and mushy inside. The eye catching texture, the warmth, the 70’s vibe, IT ALL HAS ME DROOLING! The fact this trend is in full effect, has my heart FULL!!! IMG_2759IMG_1816FullSizeRender The two dreamy crushed tops, from Luca and Grae! Click HERE for the taupe top, and HERE for the mauve

IMG_1950  Okay so next trend I’m obsessed with is Peplum Tops. Peplum tops(not Peblem as I just found out I’ve been pronouncing this wrong my whole life!)  have made a huge come back I remember when these were the thing back in the day! They are so comfy, flirty, can be dressed up, or down and I am here for them! (get this one by clicking HERE)IMG_1830IMG_2935IMG_1904This next one has me ssooo exciteddd! Bag sleeves! I know the name doesn’t sound to appealing but TRUST ME, this gives a chic look to an everyday top. The one I’m wearing is probably my favorite piece in my closet right now. Its elegant, dressy, casual, simple but different. If you want to be comfortable, stylish, and get all the complements, this is it! The one I own is literally the SOFTEST thing everrr!! HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend.

Okay so lets talk shoes! The fall trend I’m obsessing over is textured slip-ons! You NEED a pair of slip-ons! You know its not quite cold enough to wear boots but breeze enough to need your feet covered, this is where slip-ons come in as the answer to all of your prayers, and trust me these SILK khaki green beauties give me LIFE! I saw them in target didn’t get them, then dreamed about these babies for a week straight. After a week of longing, I drove my happy self on over to target, apologized for my mistake of not getting them the second I saw them, and I have worn them ssssoooo much! They are the perfect fall shoe! (Click HERE for these shoes!)IMG_3130
