Bomber Jacket Two Ways- Kendra's Version

Bomber Jacket Two Ways

                                                              Bomber Jacket Two Ways by fashiongal96

Hey guys! It's Kendra.:) I am introducing a new feature to the blog. My sister Emma and I are going to do this post of both of our ideas of how to wear a piece of clothing two ways. I'll be posting her idea in a few days. She will make two looks and so will I. This is my idea of how to wear a bomber jacket two ways. If you want, wear boots with the casual look. Also, if it's cold out or the dress is too short, pair tights with the pumps or leggings with boots for the formal look. Leather pieces(shirts, jackets, pants) are a big trend for this fall, FYI. Have a great day!

 Hello everyone! It's Kendra.:) This is my idea of how to wear leather pants for casual and formal purposes. For casual/school- pair the pants with a simple top, sneakers, a varsity inspired jacket, and add some accessories! If you're not wearing it to school, you can use a purse instead of a backpack. To get the formal look- pair the pants with a sparkly or formal top, add some heels, use a clutch, throw on a blazer if it's cool out, and add accessories. And just so you know, I incorporated some of fall's trends in these outfits- leather, varsity inspired, blazers, and sparkle! If you have a fashion request, let me know!

Recommended Read

Hello everyone! Kendra here!:) I just wanted to recommend a book that I read recently, Wild Girl by Patricia Reilly Giff. Lidie lives in Brazil, where she rides, a wild girl dreaming of going to live with her father, Pai, and older brother, Rafael, in New York City. Pai runs a stable at a famous race track. Since her mother died long ago, Lidie has lived with relatives. Now she's 12—ready to leave Brazil for New York. Meanwhile, a filly is born and begins her journey to a new home. As Lidie's story unfolds, so does the filly's. In New York, Lidie finds that moving to another country is a big challenge. And Pai and Rafael still think of her as the little girl they left behind. But she's determined to befriend, and ride, the spirited filly her father has just bought: Wild Girl. Lidie is also struggling through the book because she doesn't speak much English, and she has a hard time at school because of it. It's a small book, but I liked it a lot. You should check it out.:)

Summer pieces turned Fall/Winter

Summer pieces turned Fall/Winter

Summer pieces turned Fall/Winter by fashiongal96

Hey everyone! It's Kendra.:) This is my idea of how to turn some summer staples into cold weather wear! How to get the pink outfit- wear your summer tank with long pants(printed or jeans), add an unbuttoned cardigan, cinch with a belt, add some boots and accessories, and your look is complete! How to get the red outfit- take your summer shorts and layer them on top of leggings or tights. If your shorts are a solid color or denim, you can use a patterned legging incorporating the color in your shorts. If your shorts are patterned, choose a color in your shorts and find some leggings in that color. Add a long sleeve shirt, boots, a jacket(if it's cold), and some accessories. Quick note: who says that black and brown don't go together! You just need to mix the same amount of both colors in your outfit. The leopard leggings in the red outfit pull the brown and black pieces together as well. If you have a scarf or something with both black and brown in it, you can use that to pull your outfit together! If you have some summer pieces that you would like to have turned into cold weather clothes, let me know by either emailing me(see my profile) or comment below. But if you email me, your request will be made public. If you don't want your name used or made public, I can make you anonymous. Also, if you like a piece of clothing in any of my examples, I can give you the info for it(price, where to buy, if it's still available). Have a great day!:)

The Odd Life of Timothy Green

The Odd Life of Timothy Green Poster

Hey everyone! Last night I went to see The Odd Life of Timothy Green. It was a great movie! It's about a couple who wanted a kid, and that's what they got! They got Timothy! And he's a very special kid. I can't give anything away, but I just wanted to recommend it to you. It's such a cute movie; it's a bittersweet movie though. There aren't many bad words, I only heard two, so it's a great family movie. Go see it!!!:)

How to wear patterned pants!

Hey there! A couple days ago, I recommended patterned pants, because they are a HUGE trend right now, and because they are so cute! But, I realized that I didn't show you HOW to wear them! So, here are some ideas-
1.) Pick a color in your pant(probably not the color that predominent) and use that color for your shirt. If your pants are a neutral color, then use a color that compliments or contrasts with the pants.
2.) Your shirt shouldn't be a pattern, but it could possibly have a photo on the front, like a graphic top.
3.) If it isn't too warm, add a textured vest, cardigan, or jacket. Then add some accessories!
Here's a link to an outfit following these guide lines.:) Have a fantastic day!

Printed Pants!

Hey guys! I love the patterned pants trend, so I thought I would give you a selection of printed pants!
I actually own this pair! They are cropped and have a zipper down the side. Love them!:)
Kohls/ Princess Vera Wang London Calling Cropped Twill Jeans $26.99

I like this pick because it's floral, but it's not too springy. So it will fit in with the autumn weather!

Kohls/ Mudd Floral Skinny Jeans $18.49
Very fun print! This would be a pair that would pull it's way through the fall and Christmas season. And, yes, I put the word "crimson" in the caption twice, but that's just the way it showed up in the web search.

JCPenney/ Almost Famous Crimson Crackle Jeans Crimson $25
I know this pair is a little pricey, but they're so cute! In case you can't see, the pattern is a snakeskin.

Macys/ Jessica Simpson Juniors Jeans, Kiss Me Skinny Metallic Snakeskin-print $58.99
I love the tie-dye affect of these jeans!
American Eagle Outfitters/ Skinny Jeans $39.99
I love the exotic feel of these pants. So cute! I hope you enjoyed these selections!

H&M/ Pants $24.95

If you go to their website- -they'll give you a code to use to get the 40% off. I'm kinda liking this pair- and not just because it's name is Red Carpet Jean.;) The original price- $74.99! Take 40% off- $34.99!!! Nice!

What's in my beach bag?

Hey everybody! For me summer isn't quite over yet- just yesterday I went to the Lago Santa Margarita Beach Club! It's this really cool man-made beach. It's a pool, but they added sand to the edges to make it look like a beach. Plus, you have to be a member to get in! It feels kinda glamorous, you know? Is it just me that an exclusive club seems glamorous?:) You are probably fitting in your last trips to the beach and pool now too, so I thought I would tell you what's in my beach bag.

  • Snacks! Some of my favorites are Trader Joe's cheese sandwich crackers and sweet and savory trek mix.
  • Sandals and water sandals to protect my feet.
  • Sunscreen! BIG TIME!!! I am super fair and burn easily.
  • Water
  • Books/magazines
  • notebooks(to write any ideas I get in)
Not shown-
  • Swimsuit and cover up(I was wearing them.:)
  • Towel
  • If I'm going to the pool, a comb and face lotion(my face gets really dry after swimming)
  • Sunglasses
  • iPod
Do you have a summertime essential? Or is there something in your beach bag that isn't in mine? Feel free to comment below!:) Have a fabulous day!

End of Summer Clearance Sale!!!

Just wanted to let you know that there is a HUGE summer clearance sale going on at! It's up to 85% off!! But the biggest bummer about these end-of-the-season sales, is that they don't have all the sizes available.:( I saw the cutest pairs of pants on sale for $14.99 and $17.99 but they weren't in my size! Bummer! But maybe you can find something that you love and is in your size. Maybe even these super cute high-waisted cropped jeggings I wanted.;)
