Summer Lookbook No. 1

Hey everyone, 

I'm so EXCITED to be introducing my new fashion Lookbook series. Now that I'm back home, I have the ability to really make my lookbook videos the way I want them to be. I hope you all enjoy the video, I worked hard on it all week, filming and editing since Monday. I know its not perfect, but as I keep making more (that is, if you'd like to see more), they'll get better. 

I filmed 6 different outfits, each consisting of different trends. The first is actually my favorite because I feel most confident in it, its such a go-to look for me. I call it my laid-back cali-cool look. Consisting of a knit crop top, a bathing suit bandeau top underneath and some white cut-off shorts and a brown belt with some flip-flops. 

This look is one of my more creative looks, I just took a maxi skirt I got at Kohl's a year or two ago and made it into a dress, what I love about this is that its shorter in the front and longer in the back which makes it so much more wearable. I got inspiration for this look from the runway, I can't find the photo anymore but I'll keep checking, if I find it, I'll post it here. One item I would've added to this look is a boho headband. I forgot that!

This look consists of an off-the-shoulder peasant top and some hot pants. I really like hot pants because they give the illusion of more curve and more bum if you ask me! They also have a higher rise so you can tuck in flow-y shirts like the one I'm wearing so it doesn't look like you're swimming in your clothing. I love wearing white during the summer. It just looks great on tan skin!

This look is definitely as simple as they come. I'm not wearing many accessories, and thats ok because the print on the dress is enough in my opinion. One thing I'd change about this dress is the length, its a bit too long for my taste, but I love wearing this dress to run errands on a hot day or to the mall because its so easy to put on and take off in case I try on clothes!

This look is definitely girly. I used a belt to cinch the waist because its easy to get lost in this top (its very flow-y). I paired it with some Khaki shorts and white gladiator sandals. This is definitely something I'd wear for a outdoor lunch with a friend. Its casual yet the top's satin fabric and the belt dress it up just a bit. You could also dress it up even more by wearing heels instead of sandals.

This last look I adore, this is definitely something I'd see V. Hudgens (We all know I'm a huge fan of her style!) wearing around L.A. Its simple, yet it makes you wanna stop and stare. This look also goes to show that you don't need to go all out just to wear heels, sometimes heels look best when your look is generally casual and I mean come on! Skinny's with heels make your legs look KILLER! 

Hope you enjoyed my Lookbook.
