Carrie Bradshaw Inspired

Photo cred: AMB Photography

Skirt: Sheinside / Top: Sheinside / Heels: Zara /
Clutch: Target / Necklace: H&M /

Hey beauties <3 This is my part 2 of styling this "Geek" shirt. I was totally inspired by Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City 2. In the movie one of Carrie Fabulous outfits is a ball gown skirt and a Jadore Dior shirt. My outfit is not nearly as fabulous as hers but I tried. LOL!
I love this look because of the contrast of casual and glam. It would make a great outfit for a birthday party, baby shower or a special event. I felt so girly and glamorous in this skirt. I just kept wanting to twirl and twirl and twirl. LOL. 


Thank you dolls so much like always for visiting my blog and showing me love <3 Means a lot to me!

Coca Cola and Sunnies

Sunglasses: Forever 21 (get here) / Bag: H&M /

I love a casual day with a great pair of fitted jeans, chic sneakers and a cute pair of sunnies. This "Geek" shirt from Sheinside is great! Its one of those graphic shirts that you can either dress up or dress down. Im going to show you two ways. The first one is casual.
I tied a flannel around my waist to add layering and texture. I am liking the tie around the waist look. Adds more elements to your outfit. These angular sunnies from Forever 21 are so cute! They have a cat eye shape which I love for my face frame.
Of course I added a Coca Cola prop because that to me is nice weather! LOL. I don't drink soda but if I was to drink a bottle once in a great while it will definitely be a nice cold glass bottle of Coca Cola. Plus women look good drinking them too ;)

Hey Beauties <3
Estoy tan contenta que la primavera is here!! The sun has been shining, flowers are slowly beginning to bloom and birds are chirping again. I just love this time of year. Spring beauty trends are all about being fresh face, dewy skin and fun colors. I always like to rock a orange/coral/bright pink lip in the spring time.
I have been really loving these Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Colorsticks. They are moisturizing and glide right on your lips. My favorite part about them is the no sharpening necessary. Twist the bottom and your good to go!
I always love the look of dewy skin. Spring and summer is the perfect time to wear that look. You want to look luminous and glowing. Neutrogena foundations give a great dewy glow to my skin. This Longwear Liquid foundation is a new product to me but I'm liking it so far. The color is a bit off so I have to mix it with a lighter shade but its dewy and sits on the skin nicely.
To get a nice glow apply a cream blush to your cheeks. This can be applied with a brush or your fingers. To get more of a glow like Jlo apply a cream highlight. This will reflect beautifully in the sunlight.
Don't be timid to try out some fun colors this spring lovies. Makeup is all about experimenting! and Hey if you don't the color just swipe it right off with a makeup wipe. I love my Neutrogena makeup wipes. I always have a travel size in my handbag!

5 Days of AOS: Alana Marie Style

Photos cred: Marieli Rodriguez 
Pants: Articles of Society c/o (click here) / Shirt: H&M / Jacket: H&M /
Heels: Vince Camuto (click here) / Bag: Rebecca Minkoff mini mac (click here) / 
Belt: H&M / Watch: BCBG /
This tomgirl look is really growing on me huh?! I just love how effortless and comfortable wearing a baggy pair of pants are. These green "Twiggy" trousers from AOS are so comfy. They are so many ways that one can pair them. I decided to dress them up a bit. I rolled the bottom up to show of my caged Vince Camuto booties.
I kept the top simple and casual with a graphic tee and denim jacket. To match the booties I wore my Rebecca Minkoff mini mac bag. The denim jacket was for layering purposes because if it was to get warm out you can simply tie it around your waist. I love to layer and it can be done in the spring and summer time too!
This was a fun project that I am very blessed to have had the opportunity to style a pair of Articles of Society jeans. If you guys would like to see how 4 other fashion bloggers styled the "Twiggy" trousers check out their blogs by checking out the hashtag #ShowYourAOS

Spring White Jeans

Jeans: Zara / Sweater: H&M / Shirt: H&M /
Bag: Zara / Heels: Amiclubwear c/o (click here) / Necklace: H&M /

I finally found the a pair of white jeans! I have always loved the way white jeans looked in the spring time. Its make an outfit look so chic and clean. I got my hands on these comfortable Zara pair. I have been loving neutrals and pastel colors lately. This look is casual and chic. Perfect for a shopping day or a date w/ your girlfriends for lunch.
These heels are sooooo comfortable. I love finding cute affordable heels. These are from Amiclubwear and they really have some great shoes. Sad part is their shoes sell out quickly so if you see a pair you like buy them! Don't leave them in your cart because they will be gone!

Hope you dolls enjoy this look. Please let me know in the comment box down below of any trends you want to see next! Make sure to follow me on instagram (@alanamarie02) for more daily fashion/beauty pictures.
