6 THINGS I LOVED IN AUGUST

HEY THERE! HOPE YOU ARE ALL WELL!
I CANT BELIVE WE ARE ALREADY ON SEPTEMBER, TIME FREAKING FLIES, AND I CANT BELIVE THAT SUMMER IS TECHNICALLY OVER, I HAD SO MANY CLOTHING ITEMS THAT I WANTED TO BUY BUT NEVER GOT AROUND TO. ALTHOUGH SWIMWEAR WILL GO IN SALE VERY SOON, AND I KIND OF NEED A NEW ONE… AFTER 5 YEARS OF OWNING JUST ONE… ONE OF THE THINGS I ENJOY OF PARTING WAYS WITH A SEASON IS THAT THE CLEARANCE, I LIKE TO BUY MORE BASIC PIECES (NOT TRENDS, NEVER TRENDS) THAT WILL BE USEFUL FOR THE NEXT YEAR. 
OK GOING BACK TO THE SUBJECT OF THIS POST, THESE ARE MY FAVE THINGS DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST, SPECIALLY NUMBER 1:

1. BAKER HAT
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS HAT, SINCE THE MOMENT WE STUMBLE UPON EACH OTHER I LOVE IT. NOT ONLY IT MAKES ME FEEL SUPER FASHIONABLE AND STYLISH, BUT ALSO IT HELPS TO HIDE MY BAD MAKEUP (SHADOW ON YOUR FACE) OR BAD HAIR DAYS, IF YOU DON’T BELIVE ME CHECK MY INSTA  
THIS HAT WAS A FIND IN FOREVER21, AND IM GUESSING THEY ARE PRETTY NEW ON STORES, I HAD BEEN EYEING THIS ONE FROM ASOS, WHICH I MAY GET BUT FOR NOW I FEEL CONTENT WITH MY HAT. 
I LOVE PAIRING THIS WITH A PAIR OF COOL STATEMENT EARRINGS AND A LOW BUN OR WITH MY HAIR DOWN, I THINK IT WOULD ALSO LOOK GREAT WITH A BRAID.

ALSO, THIS HAT WILL BE (APPARENTLY) TRENDY OR IN-STYLE DURING THE FALL AND THE WINTER, SO GO AND BUY YOURS!  
2. MIXED EARRINGS : HOOPS AND LONG
MIXED EARRINGS WERE SUCH A STATEMENT DURING THE SPRING-SUMMER SEASON, AND I WAS NOT GOING TO STAY BEHIND. 
THIS EARRINGS DO NOT COME TOGETHER BUT I FEEL THAT I MADE THEM WORK. THE HOOPS ARE FROM FOREVER21, BUT YOU CAN FIND HOOP EARRINGS EVERYWHERE. THE LONG EARRINGS ARE FROM H&M AND THEY HAVE BEEN ON MY JEWELRY RING FOR SUCH A LONG TIME (THEY WERE KIND OF AN IMPULSE BUY), BUT NOW IM GLAD I HAVE THEM. 

3. RED SHOES

I’VE BEEN WANTING A PAIR OF RED SHOES SINCE FOREVER, THIS PAIR IS FROM ASOS. ALTHOUGH THEY ARE A LITTLE BIG FOR ME, WIDE WISE – I HAVE THIN FEET, I LOVE THE TONE OF THE SHOES, I LOVE THE LITTLE HEEL, BECAUSE ITS NOT TOO TALL, AND THE SHOES THEMSELVES ARE COMFORTABLE TO WALK IN.  

SIMILARLY TO THE BAKER HAT, MENTIONED ABOVE, RED WILL BE A VERY TRENDY COLOR FOR THE FALL-WINTER SEASON, SO IM KIND OF SERVED FOR THE FALL, I DONT THINK THESE SHOES WILL MAKE IT TO THE WINTER. 
4.  RAIN FOREST OF THE SEA FOUNDATION
I BOUGHT THIS FOUNDATION AFTER EXCESSIVE RESEARCH, I’M VERY PICKY WITH MY FOUNDATIONS BECAUSE I WANT COVERAGE BUT NATURAL LOOKING COVERAGE, I HAVE COMBINATION-OILY SKIN AND I WANT A FOUNDATION THAT CAN TAKE CARE OF THAT WITHOUT MELTING, CAKING, OR SEPARATING, AND THIS FOUNDATION COVERS ALL THAT. ITS SO LIGHT WEIGHT AND NATURAL LOOKING YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE FOUNDATION AT ALL.  
5. NUDE FLATS
SECOND FAVORITE PAIR OF SHOES! 
I LOVE OWNING A GOOD PAIR OF NUDE FLATS, AND THESE PROVED THEMSELVES DURING THE SUMMER. I’VE BEEN WEARING THIS BABIES NON-STOPPED THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER, HENCE THEY ARE A LITTLE DIRTY. 
AT FIRST, THEY WERE A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE TO WEAR AND GAVE ME A HUGE BLISTER IN MY PINKY, BUT ONCE WE GOT ACCUSTOMED TO EACH OTHER, THE PAIN LEFT. 
I LOVE THAT THE SHOE HAS THIS METAL LOOKING “HEEL” (LIKE 1 INCH HEEL, BUT NONETHELESS A HEEL), AND THE COLOR IS BEAUTIFUL, IT MATCHED WITH ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING.

6. LAYERED NECKLACES
I LOVE LAYERING DANTY NECKLACES, IT GIVES YOU SUCH A CLASSY-MINIMAL LOOK.

BOTH SETS OF NECKLACES ARE FROM FOREVER21, I LOVE STYLING THEM WITH WHITE BUTTON DOWS AND BLUE DENIM.
