Thank You!!| The Last Day of July-t-ful Du Jour



Today is the last day of the July-t-ful Du Jour series so I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support and for over 100 followers!! I remember when I first started blogging, I  checked my page views everyday and would be estatic when 1 person accidentally stumbled upon my own little realm that I created for myself.

MOM JEANS?!?!| July-t-ful Du Jour Day 14

 I have seen it more and more and I am sure you have too...we can't pretend it is not creeping its way out of the old dusty pile of fashion faux pas, that is not hauntingly cuter than it seemed when we were kids, the fact that we have to admit mom actually does know best. All the rumors, the fears, and gut wrenching admittance is true there is a new jean trend in town, one scarier than the rest, MOM JEANS (duhn, duhn, duhn)!!

Who Wore It Better?| July-t-ful Du Jour Day 12

One of my favorite fashion related "games" is 'Who Wore it Better?' It is the perfect way to see each individual person's style. So I decided to search for some celebrities caught wearing the same outfits (Horrible, I know!) and am going to play my own game of 'Who Wore it Better' with you!

Ashley Green vs. Kim Kardashian 
See celebrities battle it out on http://k-dujour.blogspot.com
I have to say I am going with Ashley on this one. Kim decided to go for the daring choice of wearing no slip underneath the see-through lace dress, although I appreciate the guts, I much rather prefer the more elegant and conservative look of the black slip underneath Ashley's dress. She didn't completely loose the sex appeal though she used its potential by letting her arms and bottom half of her legs to peek through. The pointed toe versus the stripy heel of Kim's yellow heels gives a more elongating effect to the midi dress. Although I am not a personal fan of Kim's shoes it is ok to wear it with her outfit because although the ankle length would make you look shorter with the slip without the slip you don't loose any height since you can still see her legs.

Basebal Caps are Hitting it Out of the Park| July-t-ful Du Jour Day 11

Baseball caps seem to be making its way past the field and into the fashion world. More and more our feminine clothing is taking a more masculine route we know about boyfriend jeans, but here we are introducing baseball caps. The clue to rock them is to add it with a contrasting high end feminine outfit to accomplish the ultra glam look. All the inspiration that you'll need is in this post (ok maybe not all, but how much do you really need.)

Everything You Need To Know When Styling Patterns| July-t-ful Du Jour Day 10

Sorry it has taken me so long to post this, but I have been driving for the past two days and at the moment I am in Montreal. The wifi in my other hotel wasn't working on my laptop, so I couldn't get a post up. But today I am going to post about pairing patterns with patterns. When I was little for Christmas I got a fashion magazine making kit. I remember one of the articles I wrote with markers and glitter was about how it would be a fashion disaster if you mix patterns. But now I know that you CAN mix patterns together, but keep in mind these simple if you follow these simple steps. Luckily I found a whole board dedicated to mixing patterns on Kelly R.'s pinterest board.

Top Pinterest Picks Hairstyles| July-t-ful Du Jour Day 8

On the first day of July-t-ful Du Jour I introduced the Top Pinterest Picks series with my top fashion picks. Today I am going to go through my beauty board and pick my top favorites! But since my beauty board is a combination of hairstyles, makeup, nail art and hacks, I condensed this post into my top favorite hairstyles and will do a separate one for makeup looks and so on.

July Birchbox Unboxing| July-t-ful Du Jour Day 7

Today I came home to the sweet surprise that my Birchbox had arrived earlier than expected. So I set the other post I had planned for today aside and decided to do an unboxing + first impressions for July-t-ful Du Jour Day 7. I have been subscribed to Birchbox since january, and it is basically a company where they send you 5 sample sized products every month in a decorative box. The cute patterns and colors of the box are almost as good as the products inside, ok that might be just because I am a sucker when it comes to cute boxes and magazines. I hoard decorative boxes and piles of magazines in my room, and I get both of them every month...you can see the problem with that. Well lets just get into it!

Bloggers You Need to Check Out| July-t-ful Du Jour Day 6

For some reason this intro has been so difficult for me to write I think I am just overtired and overthinking.But I will push through and try my best! I think the problem is there is not much to say I love writing blog posts, but I equally love reading others. We all share the same passion more or less and it is interesting to see the different perspectives of each blogger/artist(at least for me it is). It is also great to get inspiration for future posts especially when I am doing one every other day now. So here are my top 5 not so guilty reads...

Models Back In the Spotlight| July-t-ful Du Jour Day 5


The question once asked was how did magazine covers change from models to celebrities? But this is no longer the case with models popping up on not only magazines, but people's everyday conversations. Know the names Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, or Karlie Kloss? Now how about Daphne Groeneveld, Jessica Hart, or Caroline Brasch Neilsen? Even if you may know all of them, chances are the first three ring a bell a lot quicker. The reason why is based on model's popularity of the time period, the second three were part of a list compiled of the top models in 2010. During this time models didn't have that big of a role in the public eye. So the new question is, how and why have the models climbed back to the top and become more involved with the public eye?

The Hottest Bathing Suit Trends to Rule the Pool This Summer| July-t-ful Du Jour day 4



Sorry this post is a little late today I was working on a different one for today, but I really want time to work on it a little more so I don't post something that is not the best I can do especially for the next one I am working on. But it will be up the next day of the July-t-ful Du Jour series. Instead today I will share the top bathing suit trends for the hot days of summer. Unfortunately I have been busy So I haven't had the chance to go to a beach or pool. But when I was looking at swimsuits I noticed they had some modest components to it, which I am personally a fan of. You seemed to like my last post where I shared my favorite pictures of people styling Birkenstocks so I decided to do the same with my favorite bathing suits this summer.

Birkenstocks| July-t-ful Du Jour day 3

I have been seeing Birkenstocks popping up on youtube and circling in pinterest (it is obnoxious how much I mention this site). There is a classic saying with these "ugly ducklings," you either love them or you hate them. How you feel about them is your own business, but I have started a poll over on my google+ page and am interested in the results. If you are one that is all for Birkenstocks here are some of my favorite examples to use as inspiration!

Skincare Routine| July-t-ful Du Jour Day 2

When I did my announcement for July-t-ful Du Jour I mentioned that I wanted to branch off a little from strictly fashion so I decided to fulfill that today with my skincare routine. I tried to include a majority of the products I use in the morning and night, I am pretty sure I included everything except for perfume and deodorant, haha. I hope you enjoy this break from routine(with a routine)!

Top Pinterest Picks | July-t-ful Du Jour Day 1


I am so excited for the first post of July-t-ful Du Jour, if you are completely lost on what I am talking about check out my last post which explains it all. In this post I am introducing a series I like to call my Top pinterest picks. In this series I will go through my Pinterest boards and pick my top picks from some them (pretty self explanatory). I go through phases with pinterest where I will not go on for a couple months and other times where I go on multiple times a day. I have been a bit obsessed with it lately so I have 660 fashion pins(you have no idea how many times I had to update this in the course of writing this post) alone to choose from! Nonetheless I will challenge myself and pick my top 10!
