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.

    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!
