CHECKING OUT CARAVAL’S CIRCUSY CLOSET

CHECKING OUT CARAVAL’S CIRCUSY CLOSET

It’s my second Booklook post! I decided maybe I’d pair these with reviews of the books I’m highlighting. I don’t know yet. We’ll see. I don’t want this blog to be solely books. I still want to add in some fashion. But I’m indecisive. So I guess it’ll be a surprise.

Anyways, if you haven’t read my previous Booklook post, this series is basically me drawing fashion and style inspirations from the books I’ve read. I’ll usually take the inspiration from the setting, the character description (sometimes their outfits are described) or both.

ALL THE BOOKS I READ IN JANUARY

ALL THE BOOKS I READ IN JANUARY

Happy belated January wrap-up! Yup, I’m very behind. Blame either work (for making me tired) or me (for just being a lazy bum). Either one is correct.

Anyways, I read (and listened) to a grand total of … five books. It’s not the biggest amount, but I’m very proud of it. I call myself a lazy reader, which means I want to read all the books but I lack the motivation to start and actually read them. So I end up reading one book over months.

But with the reading goals I set for myself, I’m way more motivated to pick up a book. Which is great for my reading (but not so great for my wallet because once I start reading all the unread books on my shelves, then I, of course, need to buy more!! It’s the only logical conclusion).

READING GOALS IN 2018

READING GOALS IN 2018

(Note: Wow, this is going up super late! Oh wells…)

As you may already know, I love books. My dream is to have my own personal library at my house. But the crazy thing is that I don’t really read a lot of books within a year. Sometimes I just don’t feel like reading anything, or I just don’t have enough time to read. Also, if I read too much, my eyes get strained and I get migraines, so that’s no fun. But this year, I decided to set reading goals and set an amount of books I want to read.

TOBERMORY CAMPING

TOBERMORY CAMPING

Oh Tobermory, I never get sick of that place! I’ve been thinking about it more recently due to the recent cold, wintery weather we’ve been having here. *Sigh* So I decided to create a post looking back at the warm, summer days at Tobermory.

If you’ve never heard of Tobermory, it’s a small town located around four hours north of Toronto, near Georgian Bay. I suggest the best way to make the most of your stay is to go camping. There’s nothing like being surrounded by your closest friends in the wilderness (ok, wilderness might be exaggerating it a little) and just having a good time.

With no electricity and very poor cell phone signal ( … trust me, it gets better), you can actually talk with your friends or family without any distractions from the ever-present social media posts. Plus, it’s good for keeping active and having fun because there’s so many trails to hike and chores to do around the campsite. Yes, I just said chores are fun, at least only when it comes to camping.

HOW TO WEAR BOHO TOPS

HOW TO WEAR BOHO TOPS

Bohemian style has been dominating the fashion world for the past couple of years, all thanks to the popularity of music festivals such as Coachella. This season (spring/summer), one of the biggest trends is ’70s fashion, and with that comes all things bohemian.

I personally love bohemian fashion –  I like the lace and the flowiness of the clothes. I also like the earthy aspect of boho fashion. I’m actually thinking of having a bohemian theme for my wedding (if I even get married, that is…)

WHITE SNEAKERS

WHITE SNEAKERS

White sneakers.

I love the look of white sneakers. It looks clean and goes with everything you wear. Plus, it’s perfect for spring as well.

I have been searching for white sneakers for months! I have yet to find the right pair. Aka, I haven’t found a pair I could afford. Obviously my best bet is buying white sneakers from the usual brands – Vans, Keds and Converse. Although the prices aren’t that expensive, I still like to see the other options out there. With that being said, one day I still hope to buy a pair from those brands. Once I find a job.

MIDI SKIRTS

MIDI SKIRTS

The silhouettes of the ’40s and ’50s are the epitome of classic and feminine, so it’s not wonder designers today are drawing inspiration from the classic styles of the past. Midi skirts emulate the classic vintage skirts of those eras — feminine, pouffy or pleated, knee to tea length, and high waisted. They are also one of the hottest trends for this spring/summer.

Midi skirts may not be the most flattering silhouette for certain body types. Due to the nature of the skirt and depending on your body type it can either make you appear shorter (due to the length of the skirt) or heavier (this is especially apparent in full midi skirts and also the length). It may not be the best option for those who are short and have a curvy bottom half as a midi skirt may emphasis your shortness and the curviness of your legs, making you appear thicker. Nevertheless, if you’re itching to try the midi skirt, make sure you find one that best compliments your figure.
