“FIND SOMETHING NEW TO LOVE TODAY.”


Hello lovelies, I hope you enjoyed the little twists I added to the blog this week. It started with me starting the BLOGGING BEHIND THE SCENES series and then adding the personal posts to this blog on Thursday. Today we are back to normal, we are back with fashion posts and today is all about ruffles, especially the ruffled skirt.

Zara had this huge, huge, let me repeat this again, huge sale these last few weeks. Everything was marked down by a lot. Me, being cheap as always and surviving on a college student budget and maintain a fashion blog, took the opportunity to do some shopping there. I didn’t buy much, as most of the items I liked were zipper friendly and I am, as Esraa Bassiouni, a zipper unfriendly, but in the end, I got to buy two items. This amazing ruffled skirt and this camisole.

I have always stirred away from skirts as I didn’t find something that suits me and my style, but I have wanted to take chances this summer and explore more of what a petite girl like me can wear when it comes to skirts. This one was a score. I loved how it turned out to be. I got a lot of amazing comments from everyone that saw it, that the skirt looked amazing and so stylish. I didn’t want to tell anyone the price because they won’t believe me. It was just $13. I swear it was me being so lucky.

While trying to style this skirt, I have found out some tips to make you style a ruffled midi skirt, if you happened to be on the shorter side like me. The first tip is to style it with heels. I wore this short heel that day, but believe me, it made a huge difference on how I looked. The second thing is to tuck your top in and show off your waist line. I have read somewhere that petite should wear high waisted skirt or pants and tuck the top in so that they look taller. I have been doing so ever since. Even if it is not working for real, I believe that my confidence adds more inches to my height. I chose to style it with a denim jacket because of its style, it gives a little bit of a classier look and I wanted to make it a more casual look, but honestly, this is up to you.

If you are wondering who is this cutie with me, then I should tell you all about Aani from LIFE OF AANI.  Seriously, she might be one of the most beautiful and loveliest girls I have ever met. My brother introduced us to each other as we had something in common which is fashion blogging and ever since she is the one who has been telling me about the fashion live in Seattle and when I met her in person I knew that she is way sweeter and kinder. Go ahead and check her blog out because her style is flawless and her makeup is way more flawless than her style.

Thoughts? I look forward to connecting further,
