HOW TO FIND YOUR SUMMER STYLE



With all of the awesome trends that shops have to offer this summer it is hard to stick to a certain style and create a wardrobe that reflects you.

But never fear cause I am here! And I created this post with 4 tips to help you create a cohesive wardrobe that screams YOU!


1. find inspiration


 



Go through the people you follow on social media or find pictures on pinterest,
Find and save a bunch of photos of people and outfits that you love!


2. Find the feel

 

Once you have saved a few photos that you love, Add them to an album on your phone
or make a collage.
Look at them all together and find some similarities within the collection, to get a feel of what you like!


3. purchase cohesive items


When shopping for new pieces to add to your wardrobe think of what you already have at home and what you wear the most.
You should always have at least one or two things that you can pair with the piece that you are purchasing.


4. wear what makes you feel beautiful


And the last tip and most important tip is to always wear things that make you feel confident and like you can take on the world!
Never try to be someone else or copy a style just cause it is popular, dress for you!

STYLING THE "BOHO PANTS" TREND



I recently purchased a pair of beautiful boho pants from H +M, and now I am currently obsessed.
I love the look of the long flowy pants, so for this week's post I thought it would fun to show you all how I styled them!


 

I started the look off with a simple white top from American Eagle,
A good white top is such a nice staple piece for your wardrobe and is like a
blank canvas to any outfit!



To dress this look up I paired this lovely Lauren Conrad blazer to give the outfit a fresher feel.


 


I got these rings from Forever 21 and I think they add such a fun touch to this look!


 

And for my hair, I made a deep part and then simply pinned up one side!

KEEPING A CLEAR MIND



Do you have a busy schedule?
Are you struggling with balancing your "to do" list?
And does your brain currently feel like it is going to explode?

If your answers were all yes! yes! and yes! Then keep reading for four ways to clear your brain, effectively plan your schedule, and organize your life!


Life can get crazy, And sometimes we need to step back, do a little organizing and come back with a clear vision.
Here are my top four ways for keeping a clear mind.

1 meditate


Before you attack the tasks take some time to sit down and meditate.
meditating is the perfect way to get rid of stress and clear your mind.
Focus on your breath, and for a few minutes be aware of what is going on inside your head.

I like to listen to music, and pretend I am walking around inside my mind, putting everything in it's place and checking up on things.

Visualize your day going perfectly and you accomplishing all of your activities.


2 jot your thoughts


Having trouble focusing because you feel as if you have a million little thoughts in your head?

Take those thoughts to paper and jot down anything that comes to mind.

Whether its an idea about to burst in your head or something as simple as "what to eat for breakfast"
Write down how you are feeling and get those thoughts out of your head and on paper.


3 organize your space




When your work space is messy you feel messy.
Go through your things and only keep the essentials, 
There is a great video on how to simplify your desk by Christine Kobzeff Check that out here!

Toss out anything that you haven't used in the last few months, If you haven't used it now, you probably wont be using it anytime soon.


4 plan and prepare




Planning for a busy week or a busy day is essential.
Plan out when you are going to complete tasks and stick to your plans.

There are a lot of apps that can make planning a breeze, like notes, pages, and reminders.
And you can never go wrong with a good planner!

Have a long to do list?
Try listing your tasks from most important to least important so you make sure to accomplish the most important things first!
