The Benefits of Motivation Boards<3

Hi guys,

if there’s one thing that fashion bloggers are obsessed with, it’s motivation boards. They help us get stuff done and make us feel like tumblr girls if you know what I mean.

I have more than one actually but you can also choose one option.

The first option is the typical “board”, you can buy a very cheap on at the craft store or you can get a magnetic one on which you can use cute magnets as accessories.

The only downside is that it gets full after a while, but that can also be a benefit because you can find new motivations.

Second option is great for all those studious girls out there that spend a good part of their day at their desk.

Simply get a clear sheet and put your motivations and/or accomplishments underneath it. Don’t feel like studying? Remember that time you had an A+? Suddenly you’ve found a new reason to hit the books.

It’s also a pretty cheap way to have a motivation board and has a double-use because at the same time it’s protecting your desk.

The third option is the electronic one. I use Pinterest, so if you want you can follow me. The electronic one is great because it pretty much takes up no space and you can follow other people and get inspired by them. Like all social networks it connects us and it can be such a positive experience.

There you go guys, those are the 3 options I use, and I promise you they are worth it. They help develop your style, reach your goals and be happy.

Enjoy your Saturday,

Lots of love

Ed Sheeran Concert <3

Hi guys,

my legs are sore and I’ve just finished my 5th cup of coffee, which only means one thing: I was at a concert last night. AND it was awesome. Ed Sheeran is seriously one of the most hard-working guys out there and he deserves the fame.

So sit back and enjoy the pictures.

Ed is such a funny guy and he really got everybody in the mood. Even when he took the Instagram picture, he just kept us jamming.

When he sang his hit single “The A Team” he asked us to put up our phones, so he would see a sea of lights. And as you see in the picture above, the result is breathtaking.

Hope you enjoyed this post.

Fashion On The Go: I Want To See…

 

<a href=”http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/11277167/?claim=6je4vn72qa9″>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

Hi guys,

living in Europe is actually pretty great. We have a lot of freedom, and a lot of awesome cities that are pretty close together. This also means a lot of awesome styles that come together on very little space. Additionally each country has amazing and fascinating history.

But like every 17- year old teenager I want to leave home and backpack around the country and expirience amazing things that you only see in romantic comedies. Even though there is probably a fat chance of that happening, a girl can dream. And thats not going to end my travelling dreams.

Because, I Want To See…

His & Her Fashion Tips for NCAA & NFL Games

Hi guys,

a lot of you are probably hard-core football fans. Even if you’re not, there’s probably a big chance that if you live in America you still go or watch the games with your friends and family. In my experience,(and since I’m South African, I’m referring to rugby) the atmosphere is the best part of the whole experience. Like any event you have the wonderful opportunity to pick out an outfit to wear. The problem: It’s easy to accidentally just go for a pair of jeans and your teams jersey, which is a shame because there is so much potential to get creative and stand out in the crowd. Here are a few options to show how fabulous you actually are, while supporting your favorite team. In my case the … You guessed it! The Miami Dolphins!!! But don’t worry, this is to all football fans out there!

1.Embrace the teams mascot. This is an option for both the bold and the subtle personalities out there. And if the mascot is an animal the better. Cute or even trendy animal prints have been everywhere this year, and you can easily use these in everyday life too which is perfect for all you people out there on a budget. Also don’t be afraid to use fan merchandising in your outfits. If you’re looking for a great website I always would recommend Fanatics. They have a great selection for every team that you could imagine.

2. Accessorize. This is so important and an easy way to spruce up any outfit. Don’t worry guys, a trendy watch can go a far way. This way you can easily incorporate the teams mascot, without it seeming tacky.

3. For her: add something masculine, for him: dress up. Unisex trends have been in this year, BUT don’t go raiding your boyfriends closets. If you like it there’s a good chance he likes it to. Remember, there is no shame buying shirts from the guys section of the store. You can either wear the shirt over a tank and roll up the sleeves or just tie it around your waist with a cute crop top. Either way it’s a clever way to make use of the nice shirts guys get to wear without seeming…well masculin. Collage 2015-01-16 20_40_10 Off-shoulder top, Dress shirt, Sneakers, Skirt

Now for him: get away from your washed out jeans. Dress it up, because there is nothing more sexy than a guy with style. Ditch your washed out jeans, go for pants instead. Or instead of the jersey wear a dress shirt in your teams colors with a pair of black jeans. Dress shirts are an awesome way to show team support but in a more subtle way. Untuck the dress shirt for a more casual look. Collage 2015-01-16 20_23_19 Dress Shirt, Oxford Shoes, Jeans

4. Get away from boring sneakers. This means, girls go for a cute pair of ankle boots, or give it an edge with some lace up combat boots. Guys, if you love your sneakers too much, don’t despair. You can go for a more formal version and root for the Oxford shoes. However the same rule applies to you guys, boots are always a good alternative.

5. Reinvent the jersey. You love the original jersey? No worries! Just be original with the rest of the outfit. Ditch the boring sneakers and throw a nice jacket on, especially if it has some detail. This tip works for all the guys and girls out there.

6. Never wear more than 3 colors and a basic color. This means you can’t wear more than 4 colors at once. One of those colors has to either be black or white, and then you can add up to 3 more. You can also use the basic color to tone down all the other ones. Collage 2015-01-16 20_37_06   Crop Top, Skinny Jeans, Blazers   Collage 2015-01-16 20_47_48 Dress Shirt, Tie, Jeans

Now you’re all ready for a fun and awesome evening with your friends and family. I hope that you feel happy and confident with what you’re wearing and never stop being amazingly you.

Lots of Love

My New Years Fashion Resolutions

Hi guys,

I normally am not the biggest fan of New Years Resolutions, because a lot of people only follow theirs for about 2 weeks and then it all flies out the window. Then again I’m a rebel and I decided I really want to up my style game this year. So here are mine. Please enjoy:

1. Get all my outfits ready on a Sunday. 

This seems like a hard one to keep, but I think it will be worth it. This way I won’t get into time stress in the morning and my outfits will also become more stylish.

2. Get inspired.

I often see fashion posts or videos inspired by Pretty Little Liars or Teen Wolf or any other TV Shows really and those are my favorite posts, but I’ve never incorporated these inspirations in my wardrobe.

3. Go shopping more.

The only time I really go shopping is in the holidays, which as a result makes me walk around with the same exact clothes for at least 8 weeks. That’s a long time and I want to be able to treat myself more with maybe an awesome pair of jeans or an edgy new leather jacket.

4. Be confident and comfortable with what you choose to wear.

The outfits you choose are uniquely you and one should embrace that. Also stop comparing with others because that is not worth it. Every person has their own unique style, imagine how boring it would get if everyone looked the same.

Have a great 2015, you guys and let’s see what it brings us on the fashionable side.

Lots of love

Caitlyn
