New top - c/o Style Sofia, new skirt - Pacsun "Nollie", New bag - c/o Sheinside, heels - Steve Madden.


Loose on top, tight on bottom. Tight on top, loose on bottom. If you don't already follow these rules, make it your new mantra. :) And the same goes for covering up! If you want to wear a low cut top, cover your legs. Want to reveal your legs, then cover your top. Haha etc, etc. Balance. Remember that folks! This is because: tight on top and tight on bottom = too much, not sexy. Loose on top and loose on bottom = adds weight, makes you frumpy, short(er) and not sexy either.

This top is from Style Sofia! I love dolman tops because they are so easy to move in :) The material is nice and breathable too. I also got this lovely little white messenger bag from Sheinside. Messenger bags are so versatile it's great! This particular one has a nice clasp and is made very well too. Yikes and if you didn't notice, I forgot my accessories, as in necklace/ring/bracelet/watch. Saddens my heart to think I could forget something so easy as that. Oh, and if you haven't already seen it, I created a makeup tutorial for my eyes. Its really easy, you can see it here.

I also added a little banner to the top of my blog so you can easily vote for me everyday in the Akira contest. Akira just updated the participants updates on scoring and I have stayed in 2nd place since the start. Right now, I am a whole 70 votes below 1st :( So I really, really would appreciate your vote! There is only 8 days left to vote. And if you want you can even go back to the Romwe giveaway here and redeem another "slot" into my contest which ends in six days.

  24. I always go with loose on top and tight on bottom...unless I am super boho I will do a looser all over look. I am just never comfortable to do tight on top for my body...at this time...lol but I love this look the black and blue go really well together!
