Life is a Joke

There are two types of people the world: Those who take life too seriously, and those who see things from a different perspective. In short, don't be too life to the fullest. We all tend to focus on the bad which is not all bad-- we do this to give ourselves room for improvement and the motivation to reach our goals. But it isn't too hard to give ourselves room to breathe and the time off to play a little, even if that may mean just one day of lazing around in bed (Netflix included, of course). In some ways life IS a joke. This is a friendly reminder to let loose from time to time. We all need it!

A little about the brand(s):

If you're an avid online shopper, you've definitely heard of Shop Tobi before. It's an online shopping haven for us fashionistas! From girly to edgy, they've got it all-- and for an affordable price. My favorite lookbook from them so far is the "Adult School" collection. I'd say its right up my alley when it comes to how I dress IRL. If you haven't heard of them, you're missing out AKA go check them out right now!

Styled: Straight A Skater Dress

I'm absolutely in love with this one piece! The 'top' is an attachment to the dress, and gives off a monochrome panel effect-- formal yet flirty.

PSSSTT... First time shoppers get a whole 50% off their order!

Eleven Paris is a french brand that incorporates streetwear and high street with humour, pop culture, and rock references. Let's just say that their brand concept is hard to describe, in a great way. I can't get enough of their leather pieces, especially the "Life is a Joke" moto vest.
