Arctic Monkeys Concert / Fall Out Boy & Paramore Monumentour Concerts Outfit
(yes I wore the same thing to two concerts within a week of each other and I’m not ashamed)
I made my romper with some left over old fabric that my clothing teacher gave me a while ago. I used an old pair of shorts and as reference for the pattern making as well as a basic knit t shirt block for referencing as well. I am very happy with the way it turned out because it is so comfortable yet very cute and stylish.
Senior Pictures Hair & Makeup
I finally took my senior pictures the other day and I honestly feel so old; I cannot believe that high school has gone by so quickly and I’m about to start my last year.
I wanted to keep my look simple & on the more natural side. It is a heavier makeup look rather that what I usually wear, but usually with pictures as important as this, I put on a little more.
On my face:
- Too Faced Primed & Poreless
- Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation
- Rimmel Translucent Powder
- Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer
- Too Faced Blush in “Pink Lollipop”
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- Urban Decay Naked 2 & 3 Palettes
- Stila Liquid Eyeliner
- Ardel Individual Lashes in “Flare Medium Black”
- Maybelline “The Rocket” Mascara
- NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil in “Brown”
- Revlon Lip Butter in “Strawberry Shortcake”
- Sexy Motherpucker Lipgloss
I got my hair done a local salon which was really exciting considering I have never gotten my hair professionally styled before. The hair dresser first washed & conditioned my hair. Then she blew it out using a medium round brush. After the blow out, she straightened the top parts so they were perfect and then curled my hair using a wand. After she was done with the curls, she brushed through them with her fingers and used some hair spray.
Thats it for my senior picture look, thanks for reading :)
The Five Fashion Essentials that You Need for Back to School
- A pair of killer jeans - jeans are pretty much an essential part of anyone’s wardrobe right? They can be cute and casual for a study session at a coffee shop or can be dressed up for a night out. Mine are the BDG Straight Leg High Rise Twig from Urban Outfitters.
- A leather jacket - whenever you’re feeling less than or need a boost of confidence, a stylish leather jacket is just the thing! Not only will it keep you warm all throughout fall and winter, but it will automatically add just the right amount of edginess to every outfit. Mine is by BCBG.
- A colorful lip - this is the perfect thing to brighten up any look. It also adds some much needed fun & flare to a not so inspiring school year. My favorite part of wearing lipstick is that it just adds some confidence that you can conquer the world. The one above is Revlon’s in “Coral Berry”
- A stylish pair of flats - If you’ve seen pretty much any of my outfits, then you know I am a flats girl. Heels are just not for school, so a cute pair of neutral flats is definitely an essential. Mine are by New Look and I bought them from Asos.
- Sunglasses - How anyone can function without a pair of sunglasses will never make sense to me. They’re the perfect way to not only block the sun out of your eyes, but make you look stylish and sometimes even more important than you actually are. If you’ve had a tough day and maybe cried in the bathroom, do not fear the smudged mascara because your trendy sunnies will hide everything. I got mine from Urban Outfitters.
I hope you have found my back to school fashion essentials helpful and I wish everyone luck with the new school year, thanks for reading! :)

How to Use Hot Rollers
- Heat your rollers (see instructions that come with them for more explanation). Then take 1 inch sections and wrap the end of the hair around the roller.
- After the end is securely wrapped around, proceed to roll the roller up the rest of the section of hair. Make sure to only touch the sides and not the hot middle section of your rollers so you don’t burn yourself!
- Then take a clip of the appropriate size and secure your roller.
- Repeat this process with the rest of your hair.
- Let the rollers sit for a desired time. The longer you wait, the tighter your curls will be. Note that once your curlers have cooled, they are not very effective anymore. While you’re waiting, you can either pretend to be a 50s housewife, Marina and the Diamonds in the video for Primadonna or just read, like and reblog all of my posts ;)
- Then remove your rollers and clips and enjoy your beautiful hair curls!

General Admission Concert Clothes 101
Deciding what to wear to a concert can be one of the most stressful things. Do you go dressy or casual? Rocker or artistic? Fashionista or sensible? Well I am here to help shed some light with these key points.
- The first thing to think about is are your clothes durable. No, I don’t mean if your coat will last the winter. I’m talking about can your clothing items handle pushing, pulling, stumbling, spitting, tearing, nails, hair, beards, piercings and whatever else you might encounter in a GA pit. If you are planning on engaging in moshing, then you want to pay extra attention to this detail because you are going to encounter these at the extreme. Therefore, you probably don’t want to wear your Grandmother’s vintage Chanel flats or your mother’s diamond engagement ring.
- Jewelry/accessories is also a big thing to consider when putting together your musical attire. I would keep it to smaller, less expensive pieces. I’ve worn chunky necklaces to concerts before and when I’m jumping and dancing they tend to get tangled and usually either slam against my chest, strike me in the face or both. So thinner chains with small pendants are the way to go. As far as earrings, I would stick with studs. If you have long hair, they might get stuck or tangled up and if you don’t, theres a good chance they could get tangled in someone elses.
- Shoes are one of the hardest things to decide on because you want to be comfortable, but cute at the same time. Flats, tenis shoes (I’ve worn my converse/vans to so many concerts and they are always a great choice!) and cute sandals usually work out well for me. Just please, whatever you do, do not be that girl who wears heels. First of all, heels are very, very inconsiderate to the people around you. They make you taller and therefore harder to see over. Even if you are still short with heels on, everyone is bound to stumble, trip or fall while wearing them while in a GA concert. Therefore, you are bound to stab someone’s foot with your stiletto and nobody wants that. Honestly the best reason to not wear heels to a concert is that they stuck for standing in for long periods of time. If you have a seat, by all means work your heels. However, if you are going to be standing for 3 + hours straight in heels, blisters, bruisers and tears are likely side effects. Moral of the story: leave the heels at home.
- Dress for the weather. I’ve found it to be hot in GA sections because of all the dancing and there are also usually lots of packed bodies around you. If you are easily cold, I suggest bringing layers that can be easily taken off and stored away. There is no place for your winter coat in a GA concert, so I like to wear either sweaters or flannels because they can be easily tied around my waist or shoved in a bag.
I hope I helped you decide what to wear to your next concert. If you want some inspiration, you can check out some of my concert outfits here here & here
