Spring Style Inspiration

Inspiration, Style

I can’t put in to words how happy I am that winter is over and that it’s officially Spring, the weather has been amazing in Fukuoka recently because the sun has been shining, and all of the cherry blossom flowers are in bloom (ironic because it’s raining today).

The theme of this season’s style for me is relaxed and basically rocking the style of looking laid back and casual yet still elegant and put together. That sounds pretty hard to fathom but I feel like the pieces I’ve shown here provide some pretty good examples

Happy Spring!!


“Suits” 

Largely inspired by classic pin-striped or silk pajama sets. Wearing PJ’s outside of the house (especially to school) is something that I’m very strangely suuper comfortable and accustomed to doing, and because I actually love the vibe this gives off, I think a lot of things can be paired together so that they give off a similar aesthetic but are a bit more structured and put-together.

I thought denim on denim and wearing double of the same color was the biggest fashion sin ever until very recently. I actually love the way matching sets look with each other (if they are pulled off correctly) and think that there is such a cute vintage look in matching your top with your bottoms.

I haven’t really experimented with denim on denim (yet) but have matched loose black pants with with a loose black top tied into a knot at the bottom with a denim jacket or a long cardigan and love the way it looks.

January/February Inspiration

Inspiration

In my opinion, January and February are the longest months evverrrrr… Midterms, winter and that time time of the semester where no one has any motivation. It just generally feels like there isn’t much to look forward to. At least February is my birthday month 😉

Anyway, negativity aside, here’s my inspiration for these upcoming months plus some of my favorites/themes-of-the-month written down.

Enjoy!

September Inspiration

Inspiration

Hey! So, August has come to an end and it’s officially September. September feels like a month of fresh starts for me. A new school year, a new season (supposedly), new projects, IB getting more intense, and a chance to make new memories. I’m feeling SUPER inspired for this month and so I made these ‘inspo boards’ of all of the things that stood out to me and compiled a playlist of my current favorite songs. I also made a list of one-word themes of things that I like for the month. Enjoy!

Glitter and Summer Countdowns

Exactly 4 days left until the long awaited summer break. We’re at that phase where grades have been submitted, we’re done with finals, and are either watching movies or playing games in class… or talking about IB next year and getting assigned summer homework (but lets focus on the positive…). I can literally feel, taste and smell summer break and am so excited.

My last weekend of Sophomore year was spent naked in bathtubs covered in paint and glitter. Not as crazy at it sounds I swear hahah. Joela is working on one of her projects for next year and used me as one of the subjects of her art. Despite the mess, it was actually so much fun and turned out pretty cool. Pictures below.

Words to live by…

Inspiration

1. People will promise to never leave you. They will. It’s okay to be sad when they do.

2. It is always okay to cry. Always. Find a bathroom, bury your face in your pillow, and let it out. Cry in the shower. Cry in the car. Cry when you need to.

3. Boys will flirt with you for a while and then ignore you. Then, they will flirt with you some more. It will be confusing. You have every right to stop putting up with it.

4. Pay attention to what people say when they’re angry. When you make up and they tell you they didn’t mean any of it, know that they did. Also know that they wish they didn’t. Forgive them.

5. Never pretend to be someone you’re not. If you don’t like tea and classic novels, don’t act like you do to impress people. If you don’t want to wear leather jackets and combat boots, don’t wear them to please someone else.

6. People will be mean to you; they will spread lies, call you names, and talk about you behind your back. Eventually you will realise that it is petty and stupid and not worth your time. You’ll be right. Move on with your life.

7. Your friends will not always be there for you. When you really need to talk, they will sometimes not want to hear it. That’s okay. Take a deep breath and remember all the times you felt the same way. Exhale.

8. You will wait and wait and wait for relationships. The anticipation will kill you. You will keep trying to find the right person in everyone you meet. Relax. There’s no rush. The best things happen unplanned.

9. Tell people how you feel. It will be terrifying in some cases and gratifying in others. It will create relationships and ruin them. But speak your mind, even if your voice shakes, because your thoughts may never otherwise be heard.

10. Sleep.

11. Talk to people. Talk to your sister about the guy she likes. Talk to your mom about her childhood. Talk to your dad about his favorite books. Talk to your grandparents about their families. Talk to your friends, talk to your pets, talk to the cute waitress at the restaurant.

12. Always bring a sweater. Even if you think it won’t be cold.

13. Try new things. Eat new food, try a new kind of juice, switch up the way you dress. You never know what you might end up loving. Life can get boring.

14. Take care of yourself. Wash your hair with that good smelling soap you love. Eat fruits and vegetables. Drink lots of water. Go for long walks in pretty parks.

15. School is important. Try your hardest. If you don’t get something, ask for help. Do your homework. Show your teachers that you’re willing to work hard, and when it comes time to apply to colleges, you’ll be glad you did.

16. There will always be someone prettier, smarter, funnier, or more popular than you. The beauty of it is that it isn’t a competition.
