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.

MISS PEREGRINE’S CLOSET FOR PECULIAR FASHION

I love fashion (as if you didn’t already know), but I also love books. Perhaps just as much, if not more. I love reading and getting lost in a book and being invested in the characters’ lives, journey and adventure.

So I decided to start this new series on my blog called Booklook where I draw inspiration for outfits from the books I’ve read. I want to do reviews sometime soon, too.

Anyways, I decided to start off this series with an outfit inspiration from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

STRIPED OXFORD SHIRT

As a broke student in need of new clothes, I recently went on a thrift store run a couple of weeks ago. I went to my local Value Village and it too me a while to find something I really liked.

I’m always confused and slightly envious when my friends show me the awesome and stylish clothes they find at thrift stores while I struggle to find anything I like. But luckily on this trip, I actually found a piece that I really liked. In the end I only ended up buying two items. A Harry Potter book (couldn’t resist!) and a striped Hollister oxford shirt.

WHAT TO WEAR FOR A DAY AT PARIS LAS VEGAS

Las Vegas. The ultimate destination for fun, games and relaxing with friends. Once there, there’s so many options for places to eat, shows to see and casinos to peruse.

I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it on my blog before, but I have this weird obsession with France, particularly Paris. I travelled there seven years ago and I wasn’t obsessed with it as I am now. I just love everything about it, from the architecture, the food, and of course the fashion!

There’s books and blog posts focused on achieving that French girl fashion look, that sense of “je n’ai se quoi.” From what I’ve read and seen, French style is more simple and classic. They focus on quality, classic pieces that will never go out of style. They wear mostly neutral colors and very little make-up. Now that’s my style! I think I identify with Parisian style so much because it’s exactly how I dress. My closet is filled with neutrals, I always go for classic clothing and keep everything simple and minimal.

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…)

DISCOVERING YOUR PERSONAL STYLE

Discovering your personal style can be a difficult process. It involves having a deep understanding of your sense of self (that’s my Psych major talking right there..), a great confidence in your own skin and knowing what works and doesn’t work for your body type.

Many people say that fashion is an extension of yourself, an outlet through which you can express your creativity and personality. I agree. We are drawn to specific garments, styles and colours because we are attracted to, and feel comfortable, in them. We choose them because they fit our tastes, likes and visual aesthetic.

After following fashion blogs for years, I quickly noticed how they had their own unique style. Then I started thinking about myself and how I didn’t think I had a personal style.

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.
