{Lookbook} MyTee B.A.D. Clothing Presents: Live Free Stay Young

My first official lookbook for MyTee B.A.D. Clothing is here and I am excited to share it with you all! The ‘Live Free Stay Young‘  lookbook is all about enjoying life, being fearless, being present and living in the moment. It’s so easy to get caught up in negativity and the everyday hustle, but we have to remember that life is good and it’s up to us to make the best of it. I can’t tell you how many people and more specifically elderly people have commented on my “Live Free Stay Young” tee. They told me that I was spot on. That living life freely, meaning doing and being true to your authentic self is the best way to lead a happy and fulfilling life. So follow your dreams and do what makes you happy. It’s the secret to staying young. 😉 How do you live free? xoxo Nicole P.S. Thank you to the amazing team who helped make this lookbook a success!!

Make Yourself Happy This Summer

If you’re still in school, or even if you’ve graduated, everyone remembers being motivated at the start of the summer to reinvent themselves by the time classes start up again. Even if school has long since passed for you, it’s never too late to set new goals towards bettering yourself. A lot of people try to go for looks to make a more noticeable change. But this year, try something new. Instead of focusing on your appearance, dedicate the season to making yourself happy. Whether you’re in a relationship or you’re single, learning to be self-sufficient (and happy doing so!) is one of the best attributes you can gain. Volunteer One of the quickest ways to make yourself feel good is to help do good for others. You’ll feel proud of yourself for doing something to help your community, which can give you a more positive outlook on your life. The most important thing to consider when volunteering is that you’re putting your time towards something that you’re truly passionate about. That way, you’ll be …

B.A.D. Girl Style: Spring/Summer Footwear Trend to Skip

Okay so I normally don’t mention trends that I don’t like on here because I don’t even care to mention them but this ugly shoe trend has got to stop! Designers like Celine, Prada and Marc Jacobs have made this footwear trend acceptable and it has hit mainstream in full force. I keep seeing so many of my favorite bloggers rocking Birkenstocks and it makes me want to cry! I am all about comfort, but I wont go this far until I am at least 80 yrs old and even then I may reconsider.  I don’t care how much you embellish these things I find them terrible. And don’t get me started on the sport slides.  I thought this was more of a street wear trend until I saw that designers were styling resort collections with these things. You have got to be kidding me! Wearing Adidas sport slides as part of your outfit is acceptable? Stop it. Leave them for the athletes and college students who wear them to class with sweats and socks. I cant. What do you think of this trend? …

Be The Best Dressed Guest

Summer is probably one of the most social seasons to bring people together since most people like to hibernate during the colder months. But summer isn’t over yet so it’s time to squeeze in as much fun as possible. Here’s how to look fabulous, whatever occasions you have an invite for this season. A Wedding: Rarely does a summer go by without an invite to a wedding, and you’ll naturally want to look amazing when being surrounded by people you love. There are three rules when it comes to dressing for a wedding – not too short, not too tight and definitely never wear white! Indulge in a new dress – the Lace Paneled Bodycon Dress  from the womens clothing from George would be perfect. Just figure-hugging enough to turn heads, and in a gorgeously summery cerise, this dress has lace panels around the neckline and down the sides for a demure but sexy look. Instead of the classic black shoe, why not work nude peep toes with this dress instead and let the color …

Hey B.A.D. Girls! Can you believe summer is finally here?! If you’re looking to update your closet  and give your wardrobe a summer makeover, but aren’t sure where to start, take a look at my top tips for what to wear this season. SHORTS I know a lot of females who don’t wear shorts in the summer!  It’s time for you to kill those daunting thoughts and flash a little leg.  This summer, shorts for women are a big trend. From high-waisted tailored shorts to trendy city shorts, there will definitely be a style to suit you. CHINOS While there are those who forgo trousers altogether in the summer, sticking with shorts, skirts and dresses instead, there is usually one exception to this rule: chinos. Perfect for relaxing and looking stylish on cooler days or evenings, grab yourself a pair and embrace the summer vibes. DRESSES There is nothing more feminine than a gorgeous summer frock. Whether you’re being forced to sit in the office all day, hitting a music festival, wandering around town or …
