Bretons & White Denim

Bretons & White DenimWhite denim jacket
Bretons Stripes is every girl's comfort outfit. Whenever I don't know what to throw on for the day, I resort to breton stripes. It helps that I own a lot of tops/shirts and now this dress with the same pattern. I bought this Forever 21 midi dress for the summer for my casual, everyday style. Since the midi length came back, I wasn't sure if it was something I would gravitate towards. However, I liked how this particular one looked on me. It's bodycon so it would fit any body type pretty well.
I've paired it with another returning and favourite trend, the white denim.We've seen fashionistas like Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner rocking the white denim pants but I decided to go for the jacket version and it made for a very practical purchase. A special shout out to my favourite Murakami book, Norwegian Wood which I read last summer and planning to re-read it this season as well.

My Short Hair Routine

Summer has been going on in full swing and I have had a love hate relationship with it since I was a teenager. I love the bright, photogenic weather, ice-creams and evening walks but what I hate is the humidity and frizzy hair. I had really fine, long hair for the longest time (about 3 years) and I wanted a change. So I decided to muster up some courage and cut off about 8 inches of my hair and got a cool, chic bob haircut for the spring season. I have had it for a couple of months and plan on getting regular trims every few weeks. I have also been maintaining it till summer’s over and then I can finally start growing it a bit. I noticed a lot of changes in my hair routine since I’ve had this new haircut and I’ll take you through it step by step. 
#1 Shampoo & Conditioner
I have been using the L’oreal Volumetry Shampoo once a week and I use Tresemme Climate Control Shampoo on the other days that I wash my hair which is usually 2 other times. I like how the salicylic acid based Volumtery shampoo clears my scalp because I have a naturally oily scalp. The Tresemme one keeps it balanced and prevents it from attracting too much moisture which can make it extra greasy on hot summer days. I use the matching tresemme conditioner, only a pea sized amount on my ends.

My Teenage Anthems

So keeping up with the throwback theme from my last post 90's Vibe, I was wondering about all the songs I loved when I was a teenager. We had no One Direction or 5 Seconds of Summer back then. What we had were some incredible boy bands but of an older age group than the teens have today but I loved them just the same. Although I can name a few 100 songs I loved but I have summed it up to my top six teenage anthems, which absolutely stayed with me from 7th-12th grade when I finished High School. What makes me sad is that I haven't had any new favourites from these bands in a while now. So I felt the need to share a post about them and the good days.

90's Vibe

Since cropped tops, denim button down skirts, overalls, jelly shoes and numerous other 90's nostalgia goodies are currently in trend again, I had to stock up on some items I wish I had never thrown out. The outcome of that was this certain outfit perfect for lazy days or bad weather days when you are not in the mood for experimentation. I could also incorporate my new found hobby of making loom bands into this which was a bonus!
