I’m back (and with a new do)! I went on a road trip vacation to Canada and it was incredibly fun. I had all these plans to take lots of pictures and blog the whole thing but two things got in the way. 1- The place I stayed did not have wifi and 2- It is a pain in the bum to carry around a big camera all day and we stayed out pretty late at night.
These photos are from the very beginning of my trip when we went to an antique car show. I put this outfit together because I was loving all the geometric shapes and how they looked together. I was a bit dressed up for the event BUT as Oscar Wilde said, “You can never be overdressed or undereducated.”
So far on Urbane Bloom, I’ve been posting a lot of girly outfits and a lot of 70s inspo. Today, I wanted to switch it up and insert a little edge. I’m really excited about this outfit because it’s a youthful, fun look that you could wear to a concert or a party. When I created this blog my goal was to style looks for teenagers like me. This means having a mix of professional looks for meetings with professors and going to internships, everyday looks for class, and fun outfits for parties. My style is also pretty all over the place. Some days I dress a bit preppy, some days I go retro. Variety is how I have fun with fashion and express myself. I hope you like this look and please follow if you are interested in seeing more like it (or not like it 😉 haha).
My personality is pretty free spirited but I went full fledged into the roll with this outfit. As I’ve been creating this blog, I’ve come to realize how much I’m currently loving seventies inspired clothing (I created a new category for all the 70s inspired looks I’ve posted). So, I let my inner hippie loose. I rocked the headband, skipped the footwear, and frolicked in the garden. Although, I must admit, I wasn’t committed enough to go shoeless to work so I added a pair of sandals. That decision was probably for the best.
I spent this past weekend at my boyfriend’s family lake house. I was beautiful and wonderful and relaxing.
We went on a hike!
And swam in the lake.
I clearly can’t wait to get into the water!
This was an awesome weekend and I’m so sad it’s over! Here are some of the outfits I wore on my weekend getaway. 1-3: Cutout shoulder sweater and statement necklace. This was perfect for the one rainy day we had. We went out for lunch and a movie. (I was not a Planet of the Apes fan but my boyfriend loved it.) 4-6: My jacket and leggings are both Lululemon. I was covered up enough to keep the bugs out but my skin was still able to breathe. Lulu is the only brand I’ve found which can make this possible. And finally 7-9: This is my favorite coverup dress. I’ve had it for a few years (from Forever 21) and I’m still in love with the colors and patterns in it. But I still couldn’t wait to take it off and jump into the water!
I hope you enjoyed my 3 getaway looks! Follow for more!
You know those days when you want to stay in your pjs all day long…..?
Every once in a while.. Why not?
We all have lazy days like these, but no one needs to know about them! I got this pj set from forever 21. It is super comfy and the top is cute enough to wear during the day. This Batiste dry shampoo is a sample size but when I run out I am definitely getting a full size bottle! It never leaves powdery residue and is a super quick and easy fix for greasy hair. BB cream is everyone’s favorite way to get some spf, moisture and a little bit of coverage in one move without ever worrying about streaks or unevenness. This Revlon lip butter is also perfect for a lazy day because it gives you just a tint of color to look a bit more pulled together. I skipped eye makeup and threw on my new favorite sunnies! They are Tiffany & Co and were a birthday present from my amazing boyfriend. Some accessories, leggings and a cute pair of chevron espadrilles and I was out the door to my favorite breakfast place in 10 minutes!
This 70s inspired look is a fun alternative to your typical denim-shorts-and-a-tank outfit on a hot summer day. I’m obsessed with these floral shorts which I got a Forever 21 for about $15. They are so comfortable and light weight that they feel like pj shorts. I went on a date with my boyfriend in this look but it could also work going out to lunch with the girls or to an outdoor shopping mall! It’s casual but the patterns and shapes created are super trendy. If you aren’t into mixing patterns, a plain black cropped tee would be less bold but still really cute!
