Lara Jean Inspired Outfits

Ever since watching To All The Boys I've Loved on Netflix, my dressing motto has been "What would Lara Jean wear?" I've compiled all her looks in this post, but I also thought of creating my own LJ inspired outfits.

Lara Jean wears a lot of stripes, buttons and blouses. I don't own a ton of blouses so I can't really do any of that style but I do have plaid shirts that LJ uses a bit of.
The only outfit that I can totally emulate is the one she wore at the milkshake shop. She had a white long sleeved mock neck shirt and maroon corduroy button up skirt. Her shirt had more ribbed details than mine and she wore maroon high top Converses but this is the best I could do.
LJ doesn't really wear anything sleeveless in the movie, but maybe she would if the weather was warmer. Anyway, this can be used during fall as well. Just throw on a beige cardigan and it would be full LJ-style.
This is a mix of the colorful thick stripes she wore at the airport with the maroon button down skirt at the milkshake shop. This is quite a monochromatic look with the maroon socks and stripes.
I recently got these maroon boots from SAS Shoes, which I think would suit this look a lot and it is totally LJ's style. It's like a cross between her maroon Converse and Etsy boots.
LJ wears mustard a couple of times in the movie, and I do imagine she would wear more yellow tones because it is the "in" color right now. So, I paired this yellow stripe sweater with a denim button down skirt. I would swap out the shoes for Converse but I haven't owned a pair of Converses in awhile. Maybe it is time to get one again.
In another version of the outfit, I threw on a chunky knitted mustard cardigan, a pair of boots (much like her Etsy ones) and some chartreuse socks.
LJ is spotted with overalls a few times in the film. I don't own a pair of overalls jeans but I do have short-alls so this is what I came up with. I paired it with a fun yellow striped shirt and chelsea boots.
While she was cleaning her room, LJ wore a stripe shirt and skinny jeans with an oversized cardigan. I didn't exactly have a scoop neck stripe shirt but I did have one with a button up front. I decided to pair it with my mustard cardigan and black high waisted jeans. It was super cold on this day too, so I added a khaki anorak jacket on top of everything and a beanie.
You honestly can't go wrong with button down skirts when it comes to dressing like Lara Jean. This is a mustard khaki one that I paired with a black high-neck crop top and chunky beige cardigan.
Burnt orange is another color I think LJ would rock. I have a simple outfit of just a slouchy tank top and grey jeans so that the cardigan will stand out.
In one of the bedroom scenes, LJ sports a pink hoodie shirt with a rose patch that reminded me of this hoodie that I own. Mine has sequin roses all over and I paired it with some ripped jeans.
I don't really wear bomber jackets with dresses but here are a couple of instances where I have styled dresses with bombers. I should definitely try it out with a floral dress.

I hope this provides some inspiration if you are trying to dress or shop for clothes that are Lara Jean styled!

Real vs Fake Adidas Superstar/Stan Smith

I've wanted to do this post for a long time, ever since I started on my crazy collection of Adidas Superstars. I mean, I think I make quite a credible source because at one point, I owned 14 pairs of Superstars and Stan Smiths. I will be migrating my Superstar collection post over to this blog over the coming days so that you can read up on where I got them.



I'm not sure if these shoes are still as popular and wanted now because I am sort of out of the loop but if you are looking to get yourself a pair of Superstars or Stan Smiths, these are a few pointers to look out for in identifying if what you are buying is real or fake. Take note that these features are mostly applicable to recent releases only. Old models and Superstar 80s are slightly different. Then again, old models are not sold in stores anymore so if you find brand new pairs elsewhere, you should be cautious. 

I owned a a few pairs of fake Superstars before I purchased my first original pair from the Adidas website. …

Arctic Fox Hair Dye Review on Dark Unbleached Hair

I've been meaning to try Arctic Fox's hair dyes for a couple of years but never got around to it because I feared it wouldn't show up on dark hair. It's been coming up more and more on Instagram again so I did some research and apparently Purple Rain, Aquamarine and Poseidon do show up on dark hair. So that's what I purchased! These retail for $7.99 (4 fl oz) or $13.99 (8 fl oz) on the Arctic Fox website but I got mine off Amazon.  Arctic Fox hair dyes are vegan and cruelty free. They also do not contain harsh chemicals like peroxides, ammonia and PPD. These are semi-permanent and they contain conditioning agents which means you can use these dyes as often as you want to without damaging your hair. Semi-permanent hair dyes only coat your hair so it will fade with each wash. The bottle claims that it can last up to 40 washes. These smell like grape candy so it is such a treat to use them. The instructions to use this is pretty simple. 1. Shampoo and wash hair witho…

diy: hair bows

From the cloth I bought recently at Daiso, and with the major diy mood I was in, I decided to make a bunch of hair bows to wear when school reopens. My tutorial has been inspired and sourced through many inspirations on pinterest.  Start off with a rectangular or square piece of fabric. Squares will result in bows like the blue floral one above while rectangles will be like this bow in the tutorial. Mine measured about 24cm by 12cm. For my blue floral one, i used a 15cm by 15 cm square. Fold your fabric in half, with the insides facing out and straight stitch as highlighted. Leave a gap at the edge because you will be inverting the fabric after you're done sewing. This gap should also be of reasonable size, not to small or you will have trouble inverting the cloth. Once you are done, invert the fabric and  straighten it out. You can sew up the gap at this point if it bothers you. Using a pin or a needle, make some pleats with the fabric and pin through to get the bow shape. Once yo…
