A Very Brief Yet Not So Brief Update On Tween Dreams

Oh lord.

It's been an inexcusable amount of time. I haven't been on here for a MONTH! And I only did very few posts this summer. What happened to blogging daily? I thought I was cool. Aha that has nothing to do with anything.

Anyways, the reason why I took a break is because of how uninspired I was. It's really sad to think that I used to be so consistent with blogging and now I'm not. I will promise to post more often. I know I always say that but I will. I was really in a rut with blog posts, I feel like I covered every subject. But I didn't. There is still much, much more to come.

Also, I may have not been on this blog as often, but I HAVE been on Tumblr. I started doing blog posts there on just non fashion related things related to my fellow tweens. This is still my fashion blog though. I'll post on both blogs.

That wasn't a brief update. I will try not to slack ever again.

Oh and in case you didn't see my post where I talk about this, here's my Tumblr:

Trend Alert: Studs

This fall, studs are huge! At stores like Zara, every new item is studded. But, this season, the punky trend gets an upgrade. Sure, you expect to see studs on edgier pieces, like leather jackets, but what's very huge this year is more unexpected items like studded shorts, (easy summer-to-fall transition) studded denim jackets and studded ballet flats. Like all trends, there are rules: only wear one studded item per outfit! Too many studs looks way too trying. 

So, yeah that was my very brief blog post, hope you enjoyed!

4 Ways To Wear: Floral Shorts

Floral shorts are huge right now! I think they are a perfect summer look that can easily be transferred into fall. You may have seen the outfit I posted on Tween Dreams' Instagram (which I just made yesterday and the username is tweendreams) where I questioned ho to wear floral shorts, but now I have come up with a whole 4 ways to wear!

Way #1: I know this is the obvious choice, but pairing a pair of bright floral shorts with a solid, subtle tank top can NEVER go wrong.

Way #2: If you're still into the basics but want a more trendy look, you can try pairing the shorts with a button-down. Sleeveless button downs are my favorite for the summer.

Way #3: For a very cool late summer to early fall look, try this: pair floral shorts with a tank top and a cardigan or blazer. The cardigan or blazer or whatever jacket you choose will make the look mature, but the shorts will keep it fun.

Way #4: I really love the combination of floral and denim. A pair of floral shorts and a denim shirt, jacket or vest is a perfect look!

Hope my tips were helpful, and I hope you enjoyed this post!
