Summertime Corduroy

Wearing: DIY shirt, American Apparel skirt, Nasty Gal purse, Citizen watch (c/o American Apparel), Ray-Ban sunglasses

If I'm not mistaken, corduroy somewhat falls under the same realm of the "don't wear white after labor day" rule. Due to the fact that I tend to steer away, or even completely follow the opposite of this rule-primarily because all-white ensembles were all the rage last winter- what should make me care that corduroy is not "acceptable" in the summer. Nothing. Now that I think about it, who even ingrains these absurd "fashion do's and dont's"  into naive five year olds brains? I'm not too sure... but society wonders why the battle of getting kids to be individuals and "unique" is so prevalent......pshh. 

 Even if this skirt's material is a tad winterish, then my trick- for anything "winterish"- is to pair it with anything that is a light-wash denim material because at least for me, a light-wash denim screams summer and spring just as much as florals do. I don't know, pairing a black crop top with this skirt, say, just didn't cut it for me. Then, of course, my white converse also add to the summer vibe of the outfit. I think I might have to get the high-top version of them soon...

Black, White and Neon: See what other outfits I wore this week!

Wearing: H&M vest, Forever 21 pants & shirt, Urban Outfitters sandals, Cambridge Satchel from J. Crew

Black and white is most definitely my go-to color combo, thus something else is always "needed" in terms of a pop of color, and when I throw on this neon green Cambridge Satchel that problem always seems to be solved. This was my outfit last Monday, and  you can see my other outfits for the week on my YouTube. I though it'd be fun to show you guys my outfits for the week "in talking form" and it kind of gives a different perspective on my outfits, at least I think. Personally, I love hearing the people in the outfits talk, you get to know them better and the outfits come to life in a way. Let me know what you think!

Michaelachristine14: New youtube channel!

Hello guys! So that "big news" I mentioned in my last post I decided to reveal earlier than I anticipated, not a bad things by any means though... I made a YouTube!!! consider it a virtual Michaela...
Although it is not really "big news", to me it is because it took me a long to think about whether I should start up a YouTube because of the time and commitment a channel involves. As of about a week ago I started my YouTube and have uploaded three videos at this point. The one I have posted above is my personal favorite, and the one that I think you guys would enjoy the most. The next video I have planned is an outfit of the weeks video, basically a "moving blog" I guess you can say.
My username is MichaelaChristine14, just type that right into the YouTube search bar and I should be the first thing you see! I hope you guys really enjoy these videos and what's to come. By the way, I am not abandoning this site at all, because YouTube is so demanding I might even post more on here because there's going to be more days I'll be "in the mode" of posting (not sure if anyone else gets that "mode" or if it's only me!).

Grandma Prints

Wearing: Forever 21 top, Topshop skirt, H&M shoes, Etsy necklace, Brandy Melville bralette

Lets first take a moment to appreciate this top, and most importantly the fact that it is from Forever 21, I cannot get over that myself. Sure some threads have been pulled, but none that the average person can actually see. Despite that, this shirt goes perfectly with this edgy, plaid circle skirt. I absolutely love the balance that the two prints gives off, I think it's safe to say that I have defined my style as "all about balance". 
I also wanted to quickly address my excessive leave of absence, quite frankly I am tired of hearing myself make excuses and I can't imagine how you guys feel. For that reason I am going to admit that within the time from my last post (even before that) up until now I've had sufficient opportunities to produce quality content for you guys but instead I've been brainstorming. And as of, I'd say, two days ago I brought my brainstorming to a conclusion and some very exciting content will be coming your way. You are probably utterly confused right now and that is because I am trying to be as vague as possible in my efforts to make you anticipate something without giving it away. So, let's just leave it as "be patient, because your confusion will be cured soon".
