Cause Darling I’m A Nightmare Dressed Like A Daydream

If you guys have been following me on Instagram *wink wink hint hint:@loansandlouboutins* then you’re all well aware that I’m absolutely obsessed with Taylor Swift’s new album ‘1989.’ It’s no secret that Taylor is my favorite celebrity of all time, so my opinion MIGHT be a little biased, but this may or may not be the best album ever. Girlfrand is freaking killin it on the charts and sounded amazing on Good Morning America. I’m sure you can imagine my excitement when the ‘Blank Space’ music video came out (you can ask my wonderfully patient roommates: I talked about it for two days straight). Not only does Taylor know how to poke fun at herself, but she knows how to do it while looking fabulous. Below are a few of my favorite fashion moments from the ‘Blank Space’ video. Oh, and Taylor in case you haven’t seen my continuous Tweets/Instagrams: I’m free anywhere anytime to hang out. But seriously..be my best friend?

1) Taylor Kills A Cake

Okay, I don’t know about you, but I wear my old high school T-shirts and yoga pants with holes in them to bed. Not Tay. Everything about this look is off the charts hot. Between the all black, the sheer cardigan and the lace sleeping mask, I’m certainly inspired to amp up my sleepwear. Emulate Taylor’s look with a black bralette and her famous red lip, but maybe just leave the knife in the kitchen. Oh, and let’s not forget the special appearance by Taylor’s cat Olivia Benson. I actually don’t think she can get any cooler.

2) Ooops I Dropped Your Phone…

Taylor Swift Blank Space

I dare you to tell me you don’t love this outfit. First off, holy crap does this girl have some long legs. At 5’3 her stature is enviable to say the least. Since I cant have her height, I can at least copy her outfit. The matching crop top and skirt combo has been a favorite look of mine for a while now. This floral pencil skirt and crop top would look amazing for a night out with killer heels and a leather jacket. Your gonna look so fab everyone’s gonna be all:

3) Taylor Hangs Out With A Deer

Screen shot 2014-11-15 at 2.01.13 PMThis is hands down one of the best parts of the video when Taylor gets crazy eyes and goes berserk on her leading man. A leopard print dress with heels and gold jewelry a-la Taylor is a perfect date night option. Just be sure to leave your crazy at home. Also, I wouldn’t be doing this look justice if I didn’t include this gem:

  So go watch ‘Blank Space’ for the 1000th time and check out all of these amazing style moments. The haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate about Taylor’s love life, but we all know she’s the one who’s laugh laugh laugh laughing all the way to the bank.

Coral Is the New Black

I know I can’t be the only person who finished ‘Orange Is the New Black’ in three days and is feeling totally lost without Red, Piper, and the whole prison family. Since I’ve yet to find myself a new show to binge watch, (I’m thinking Ray Donovan might be next) I’ve decided to channel some of my post-OITNB sadness into a new post. While I do admire Morello’s ability to look fab in prison, (tissues as hair curlers? Genius), OITNB obviously lacks in the fashion department. Since orange is totally NOT my color, I decided to focus on orange’s not-so-distant-cousin, and my favorite color of the moment: Coral. Below are a few of my favorite ways to show off this fun and summery color.

Aerie

I know you guys are probably getting sick of me telling you how much I love Aerie’s bikinis BUT I wouldn’t keep telling you about them if I didn’t seriously love them. This coral bikini from Aerie has an adorable ruffle on the top, as well as a cute little pineapple print on the top and bottom. Between the print, the color, and the comfortable halter fit, you’ll be wearing this bikini all summer long. The top is currently $29.99 and the bottom is $19.99 which means you’ll have the who set for $50! Pretty sweet deal considering some stores, which shall not be named, are trying to selling bathing suits for upwards of $150! They do realize they’re selling two tiny pieces of fabric, correct? Total pet peeve.

NASTY GAL

There’s nothing cuter than a bright skirt in the summer, and this coral skirt from NASTY GAL totally fits the bill. With the high waist and pleated detail, I would totally rock this look with a crop top like the one on the model. For a daytime look I would swap the crop top for a graphic tee and flats. All of this coral is reminding me how much I need to put on some self tanner..

BaubleBar

If you’ve never heard of BaubleBar I seriously suggest you head over to the site and check it out. They have the cutest jewelry at great prices, plus if you sign up for their emails you’ll receive 15% off your first purchase. Also, every Friday and Monday they mark down one item to $10 and another to $20. If you sign up for the emails they will send you hints to find the “Buried Bauble.” It’s like an adult version of a treasure hunt, only the hidden treasure is totally enviable and affordable jewelry! Case and point: this eye catching coral statement necklace is $36! Use the 15% off code and you’ll have yourself a gorgeous necklace for about $30.

 ASOS

I’ve been searching high and low for a new beach bag that will (A) be able to hold the copious amounts of magazines and other items I bring to the beach (B) look cute (C) doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. I think I’ve finally found what I have been looking for with this straw and coral trimmed beach bag from ASOS. This bag is cute enough to go from the beach, to a night out, and at $29.53, I think this will be my new go-to bag.

Are you guys loving coral right now? Is there another color that you’re completely obsessed with for summer? Let me know!
