hello world!

It’s back to school time, and you know what that means. Spending time in the classroom and looking like the hottest and smartest girl in school. It’s a tough job walking down the hall and making everyone turn and whisper. And it’s not for the faint of heart. 

With school coming into session again, it means shopping but this time with a different agenda in mind. 

Here’s the thing though, you know that back-to-school shopping means notebooks and pencils, I’m not talking about that part. 

I’m giving you back-to-school essentials that will make sure you look like the most model off-duty girl in school. These staples are super simple and effortless, so you will always be ready and looking like the it girl. 

telescopic mascara

This is the new mascara that you need. It makes your eyelashes super long, and all the hot girls are using it right now. 

glossier cloud paint

With fall and winter right around the corner, it doesn’t hurt to add some color to your checks to keep that summer glow all year long. This one is great because it’s super quick and easy and leaves a great look. Plus, it’s Glossier, so people will know you you know what’s up. 

la roche-posay acne spot treatment

School means stress, and stress means acne. Get your hands on this product and have flawless skin all year. 

alo water bottle

How to tell everyone that you are THAT GIRL. 

adidas sneakers

These are the hottest sneakers ATM. So stroll into school, showing everyone how on-trend you are!

cactus plant flea market sweatshirt

Does this sweatshirt scream that you are iconic? Yes. Yes, it does. It’s super cute, super on brand, and super comfy. It’s a 3-in-1. The perfect school staple, especially for when the weather gets colder. 

airpods max

Duh. 

la colombe coffee

I love that you can just grab this coffee in the morning and rush over to the school and still manage to look like you are better than everyone else. If I saw someone with this drink in the first period, I would immediately know she has taste. 

casetify star phone case

This case 100% matches this new it girl vibe going around. So get on it because I already did. LOL. 

the perfect notebook

Literally every single it girl on the planet has this notebook. And every girl who knows what’s up knows about this notebook. I mean, scroll on mood board Twitter for five seconds and you will find this notebook. 

I’ve recently been really getting into skincare and trying to learn more and more about it and about my own skin. And I’ve also been noticing the most popular yet efficient skincare products used by all the hot girls on our TikTok for you page. So between social media and the Beauty Secrets from Vogue, I’ve managed to make a list of what seems to be the skincare essentials of it girls. 

Youth to the People Kale + Green Tea Cleanser

I first heard about this cleanser from Kaia Gerber, and ever since then, I've seen it all over Pinterest and TikTok. It's a great face wash, and you feel like a total it girl. It’s gentle and doesn’t dry out your skin, leaving you fresh and clean.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

Everyone I know (including myself) who has bought this product has ended up buying it again. It feels lightweight when you're putting it on and dries nicely while still leaving a glowing and moisturized look. It's super hydrating, and I think it’s a great product whether you have dry skin or normal skin.

Supergood Glow Sunscreen

I love this sunscreen. It's tinted and leaves you with the dewiest, glowiest, and flawless skin ever. It's the perfect product to finish off your skincare routine. Plus, it's super lightweight and doesn’t even feel like sunscreen, but you are still getting that SPF 40.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

You have been living under a rock if you haven’t seen or heard of this product yet. It really does work and leaves you with super glossy and moisturized lips. 

The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm 

This is the face wash for you if you tend to have irritated skin. It’s super calming and soothing, and the oat is a great ingredient for moisturizing and cleansing.

PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash 

For all my girls with Acne, this is the face wash for you. I’ve heard so many good things about this product and learned that it really does help with Acne.

Cocokind Ceramide Barrier Serum

I have heard great things about this product and that it is super nourishing. I love it because it helps repair and supports your skin barrier, which is the most important thing in skincare, no matter your goals.

Laneige Cream Skin Toner

This is for you if you were looking for a new toner that adds extra moisture to your routine.

Caudalíe Radiance Serum

Who doesn’t want that extra kick of radiance? I know I’m always looking for that in skincare because it gives your face that effortless glow. This product specializes in that and makes your skin look great.

Eau Thermale Avène Restorative Protective Cream

The mist is also amazing, but I think this product is a better investment and worth the money. It's great if you have sensitive skin because it restores and protects without irritating your skin.

Youth to the People Mandelic Acid + Superfood Unity Exfoliant

Great ingredients for great results. It's gentle but efficient and a nice exfoliant that doesn’t strip your skin completely.

Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Eye Cream

I’m not always sure if eye creams are worth the money or if they should just be skipped. But if you are going to get an eye cream, this is the one to get. Vitamin C and collagen are just what you're under eyes need to brighten them and make them look even younger. 

Paulas Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant 

I love this product. This is the toner for you if you want to help your textured skin. It’s really exfoliating and evens out your skin.

The Ordinary Niacinamide

A great product for blemishes, and everyone loves it.

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is a really important ingredient for your skin, which is why I love this product. It plumps your skin and helps with fine lines.

Rhode Peptide Glazing Serum

Miss Hailey did know what she was doing when creating this product. I love it because rather than needing a bunch of different serums with different important ingredients, this one offers it all in one. It has everything I mentioned above, like Niacinamide and Hylaroinicc Acid, but it also has peptides and oil that are great for your skin.

As you probably know by now, Hailey Bieber released a smoothie with Erewhon after launching her new skincare brand, Rhode. 

I’ve been seeing so many people talk about the smoothie and swoon over it, so I wanted to try it myself and see if it's actually as life-changing as people describe it. 

So I drove over to Erewhon and bought this super cute pink delight for $17. That part isn’t super cute, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Anyways, let’s get straight to the point. 

First of all, it tastes like a very simple strawberry smoothie. If you want a smoothie for flavor, this is not the one I would order from here. This smoothie is all about the ingredients. And these super cool featured ingredients don’t have much taste, so, understandably, the smoothie has a pretty generic and simple taste. 

I did notice a hint of a flavor that I’m not sure what it is, and I don’t really love it.

This smoothie features ingredients like hyaluronic acid, collagen and sea moss which have great skin benefits. It also includes avocado, which is less fancy but still super great for your skin. And when you buy this smoothie, you aren’t buying it for a great smoothie; you're buying it for that.

So basically, if you want a smoothie for the flavor, I would 100% order a different one, but if you are ordering a smoothie for skin benefits. I would 100% order this one. 

And the thing about this drink is that you can totally make it yourself at home. In fact, I created the exact recipe, so you don't have to miss out.

Overall, a simple smoothie, but the flavor is not worth the price, and I think just having a healthy diet will probably help your skin the same amount this smoothie would.

There is nothing like walking around town in the perfect summer dress. Head down to your favorite coffee shop, grab an iced drink, and make all heads turn. You will be the most confident and hottest girl in the room with the perfect dress and favorite accessories.

So many dresses are on the market, but it might be impossible to find the right ones. So I put together my favorite and most-it girl-worthy summer dresses.

Hopefully, you will scroll down and find the perfect dress for you, and if not, then maybe you will at least have an understanding of the direction you want to go in.

Stephanie Paradiso from Réalisation Par

I absolutely adore this dress and this brand in general. Whether or not you love this dress, I guarantee if you just scroll on their website, you will 100% find something you love. And honestly, I think every it girl has at least one dress from Réalisation in their closet. I know Emily Ratakjwoski does, and I definitely do too. So hop on this train if you haven't yet, and you will thank me.

The Devon Flower Power Bustier Dress from Réalisation Par

See, I told you I love this brand. This dress is also super cute and super flattering if you want something with more shape. Plus, who doesn't love a good mini dress?

Annika Dress from Rat and Boa

I feel like this dress is perfect for those nice dinners you go on while on vacation. I'm picturing staying at Nobu Los Cabos and throwing this dress on for a fancy dinner after laying in the sun all day. Talk about looking cute from day to night.

Jackson Mini Dress from For Love and Lemons

You can never own too many little white dressed. This one, when styled correctly, is super cute. I love this loafer look shown in the picture, and I would wear that or some cowboy boots.

Tube Dress from Djerf Avenue

How. Freaking. Cute. I love a good strapless moment, and I feel like this is the perfect summer dress for when you roll out of bed, throw it on, and have your fresh bread and jam while sitting in the French countryside. See the picture?

The Pointelle Knit Dress from Marc Jacobs

If you don't get this dress right now when it's 40% off, I won't get it later. I'm not 100% sure if it's worth the investment because there are many other options I'd put before this one. Nonetheless, it's still a super cute dress and great for throwing on and heading out the door knowing you look super hot, and it took no thinking.

Maria in Leite from Mirror Palais

Remeber how I said there are other dresses I'd invest in before the Marc Jacobs one? Well, this is one of those dresses. You cannot tell me this isn't the most stunning dress ever. The whole brand itself is a vibe, and its aesthetic is everything. But I love the detail and the fit and the fa=bric and the shape and pretty much everything about it.

Soft Lounge Long Slip Dress from Skims

A classic staple black dress that's great for lounging in but also great for running out to grab a coffee. Plus, it could 1000% be worn all year round. Just switch up the accessories and boom. That's what I call a closet staple.

Brown Red Stripes Simi Dress from Gimaguas

You cannot tell me that this wouldn't be so cute for a summer trip to Europe. Like I could only dream of walking around the coast of Italy wearing this dress and eating gelato. In fact, I'm manifesting that right now.

Pacey Dress from Reformation

Summer in the Hamptons. That's it. That's all I'm saying.

Jacquemus is back with a stunning new collection for Fall 2022 Ready-To-Wear. The styles are very similar to all of the work we know from this brand, but there are some new looks and differences that I noticed.

All of the clothes looked super comfy and wearable, which I love about this brand. It featured fur and linen and the show was 90% cream. Usually, Jacquemus has a lot more color but they toned it down for the upcoming fall season. This makes me wonder if we aren't going to be seeing a lot of colors this fall. If that's the case I'm definitely going to make sure I start getting all the wear out of my colorful clothes before neutrals are back in full force.

We also did see some familiar faces, which is always fun. This is Lila Moss' first show with them, but models like Mona Tougaard, Adut Akech, Mica Argañaraz, and Vittoria Ceretti have all walked with this designer before.

You can find all the looks in Vogue.

A pair of perfect baggy low-rise jeans are an essential piece to an it-girl wardrobe. In fact, that would definitely be in my top 5 closet must-haves. I can't live without them.

But it wasn't until recently that I discovered my current favorite pair of jeans. They have a great slouchy look but sit so perfectly on your hip bones, I'm in love.

Because a pair of jeans like that is hard to find.

And I always say, it doesn't matter if you have a million pairs of something, if you don't have one perfect staple pair it's like you have none.

You know that feeling when you dig through your closet and throw a million items of clothing on the floor but still say you have nothing to wear? It's for that exact reason I just described. Whether it be that one perfect stable tube top, perfect leather jacket, or in this case that perfect pair of slouchy low blue jeans.

Best Baggy Jeans

With my baggy jeans, I need them to be the perfect baggy shape, they can't just look super huge on me and have no shape.

Because you can always tell.

Jeans may all look the same to the untrained eye but not to someone who dies for the white baby tee, blue jeans, and hottest sneaker combo.

I've bought a bunch of low-rise jeans and baggy jeans and low-rise baggy jeans, but nothing hit. I recently saw a new pair of jeans on this girl and I was like, hmm - I like that shape.

So I tried something a little bit different and it worked. I got my favorite and most perfect pair of baggy low-rise jeans.

Here's what I did.

Zara is known for having great jeans, you just gotta dig and find what works for you and I did just that, except it might work for everyone. But it also might not and that's okay.

@josefinehj

Instead of going for my usual low rise, I went for mid-rise straight-leg jeans. But here's the catch:

I sized up like six sizes.

That way, the once mid-rise is now too big for mid so it went down too low, and the once straight leg is too wide for the straight leg so they became baggy. But they still had the shape of a nice fitting pair of blue jeans.

Get the logic? How genius!

And the best part is, as I'm writing this the exact pair of jeans I ordered are 30% on the Zara app! I'll link there exact pair I bought below and you can knock your socks off.

You might have heard of sea moss on your TikTok or maybe saw your favorite green juice girl adding a heaping scoop of it into their smoothie, but what really is this? And is this actually something you should be eating, or is it just another health trend that is kind of stupid?

First of all, sea moss is a red algae and you can get it raw or in the form of a pill, powder, or everyone's favorite: a gel. Now, most sea moss supplements aren’t actually approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, but that doesn’t dismiss the fact that this is almost a superfood. 

Sea moss is great for your gut health, heart health, and immunity. It's also full of fiber which is always a plus. It also contains more than 90% of the nutrients our body needs. How killer is that? My second favorite thing about this product is that it's great for your skin. The magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin K, and omega-3 fatty acids that you find in sea moss all hydrate your skin and protect its barrier. Its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties are also great for clearing your skin up. 

Now you might be super convinced that you need sea moss, but there are some cons. First off, it tastes disgusting. The best way to eat it is by blending it with your smoothie with the hopes of completely masking the taste and texture. It would probably be painful to just eat a straight scoop because of its super fishy taste and super slimy texture. But the supplements shouldn’t be too bad. To give you an idea of what the gel is like picture a scoop of aloe vera but it tastes like clams. 

You also don’t want to overindulge in this product with the hopes of clearing your skin super fast because seaweed is known to absorb heavy metals which are toxic in large amounts. 

So personally I think choosing to eat or not to eat this new “superfood” is up to you. I personally throw a scoop in my smoothies because I love the benefits and I love trying all the new health and wellness trends. But if you stick to a clean diet you really shouldn’t need to rely on supplements. Overall, this trend really is a personal choice. But I do suggest trying it out because why not? Who knows you might feel great and your skin will be amazing and all that jazz.

I've linked my favorite sea moss gels below.

Your room should be your sanctuary. And it should also be super hot and super you. But rooms can be a personal thing because there are so many ways to "decorate." You can keep your room super minimal and beige with a few pieces out like your Five Minute Journal and candle from Le Labo for a green juice girl vibe. Or you can have lots of color and trendy knick-knacks from cool vintage stores for a maximalist @linmick vibe. And I think for a Bella Hadid vibe it should be a more simple room thats decorated with your clothes and accesorries but also a few trendy pieces, like a Le Labo candle or your cool vintage camera. But keep it organzied so its not giving hoarder.

I always suggest making a Pinterest board with images on how you want your room to look and then pull a few pieces from this article that you think best match your vibe or the vibe you are trying to achieve. All the images are linked!

So anyways, here are some things you might want to purchase to build your it-girl room.

COOL AF PRINTS

These are just a rough idea of what you can fill a wall with, but I do love the top three a lot. And if you are looking for a way to switch things up in your place, I would totally recommend dedicating a whole wall to just artwork. Buy some online (remember these images are linked) but also head over to thrift stores or local vintage shops and see what cool art you can find. I also love to paint some to add a personal touch.

LAMPS AND LIGHTS

Because plain white lamps are just so boring now! And you don't have to spend a million dollars on a James Turrell light installation to create a Pinterest-worthy workspace.

MATILDA DJERF WORTHY BEDDING

Your bed should practically be a cloud. Super comfy, super cute, super Scandinavian chic. I love a good duvet with a bunch of colorful pillows, or all white pillows, whatever floats your boat. And play around with colors. You could have color sheets with a white blanket or vice-versa. (Duvet not included but very neccessary).

A CLOTHING RACK

For my fashionistas out there, this is essentials. Throw either your favorite pieces, newest pieces, or most valueded pieces up for display and make everyone jealous. And the color of the clothes can really brighten up a room and add a touch of funk without needing to purchase anything more than a rack.

TRENDY KNICK KNACKS

Everyone could use 1-5 iconic knick knacks that will make all their friends drool. Maybe its an $80 candle or maybe it's your favorite candle holder. Totally up to you. This is also the part where you can really let your own aesthetic shine through.

BOOKS THAT ARE JUDGED BY THEIR COVER

These books are a great read, but they also have super cute covers so you can stack them on your desk and show everyone you are smart and pretty. Because hot girsl read! Plus it totally screams it-girl having these hot books nobody has heard of but suddenly everyone will want to read. Look at you being a little trendsetter.

THINGS TO SHOW OFF YOUR FAV ACCESORIES

It's giving Devon Lee Carlson because when you have great taste, why hide it!

FULL LENGTH MIRRORS

I personally loveeeee these mirrors because they are very much giving Djerf Avenue office and swedish chic. However, they are simple enough that you can twist them into your own vibe if you aren't here for the swedish chic look. Howver, I don't think you can ever go wrong with channeling Matilda Djerf. But I did also want to include the supermodel mirror we all know and love and can't afford but wish we could.

Let me just start off by saying 3 things. Actually, more like 3 facts.

  1. Tube tops are THE top this summer, and honestly this spring also because the it girls just can't wait.
  2. I am a die-hard tube top fan so I have never been happier to see a shirt come back in style.
  3. Everyone looks good in tube tops, and better yet, everything looks good with a tube top.

That's it. Those are my 3 facts. And notice how I said facts? So you can't question whether tube tops are cute on you or not because I literally just said they are and I said those are facts. So like... check the facts. Oh, you did? Great, let's continue.

Now let me evaluate my facts.

Fact 1: Tube tops are THE top this summer... blah blah blah. They are! It might be because they look great with other current fashion trends or just because someone cool wore one and brought it back, I'm not too sure but they are here and they are hot. They will look so great in all their colors this summer by the beach or with a smoothie in hand. Plus I feel like I would be living my best life this summer if I spent the whole time in a tube top.

~~~quick side note: you either get exactly what I'm talking about...or you don't...because it girls only...duh~~~

Fact 2: I am a die-hard tube top fan... It's true. And it might be because of what I said earlier about how I live my best life in a tube top but IDK. Anyways, I always feel like such an it girl in a tube top and it might be because of that effortlessly cool and hot and perfect vibe they give, or because I feel like Paris Hilton. Not too sure, but either way, tube tops always win.

Fact 3: Everyone looks good in tube tops...everything looks good with a tube top. And I stand by that. Like when have you ever seen someone look bad in a tube top? That's right, you haven't. I end my case. And also, everything looks good with a tube top because of how versatile they are! You can dress it up with a blazer, pointy boots, and a matching maxi skirt for a night out, or pair them with a mini skirt and platform sandals for the perfect beach day look. I could honestly name like 100 ways to style a tube top off the top of my head, but first, we have to start with the basics.

So now that you are convinced you need a million tube tops (because you can never have too many), you are probably wondering where to get some cute ones. Well, say no more. Lucky for you, I'm always taking notes when I see a cute tube top, so I was able to round up some of my favs.

Starting off very strong with a classic and sturdy top from the one and only Djerf Avenue. They make their tube tops in a bunch of colors, but I included the blue one below. I love the relaxed fit of their tube tops because that is so hard to find in a tube top and the fact that they offer this is just *chef kiss*.

tube top from DJERF AVENUE in sky <3

@djerfavenue

They also offer the top in a striped print which is super cute. My personal fav is the pink one but that's just because pink is one of my favorite colors. I might have to grab it and give you all a review <3

@lucyraemcfadin

tube top from DIESEL

Guys how cute is this top? Diesel is constantly raising the bar and making me more and more sad that I can't have every single item they make appear magically in my closet. How tragic. It's honestly giving a superhero vibe with the metal D, but I'm so here for it.

tube top from GIMAGUAS in blue/multi

And don't even get me started on how obsessed I am with Gimaguas. Everything they make screams summer and their whole aesthetic is 2DIE4. I could scroll through their Instagram for hours, but even worse, I could scroll on their website for hours just adding everything to my cart. Not only are Gimaguas amazing at making pretty much everything, but they are also extra creative and iconic when it comes to their tube tops. They offer quite a lot, and you can find previous styles on vintage clothing sites, such as the one above. However, they released a new drop for summer and there is a specific tube top that I had to include below.

tube top from GIMAGUAS in blue bella

@gimaguas

How could you not fall in love right now? I actually need this top and I will do everything in my power to get it!

@reformation

strapless sweater from REFORMATION in gossamer

This top is so simple yet elegant and a great basic. I would 100% wear it with some low baggy blue jeans and black platform sandals. Reformation also sells a really cute green tube top that's made with a super comfy fabric.

zenni tube top from INAMORATA in pink mosaic

@inamorata

This tube top is so perfect for a beach day in the summer or a pool day while on vacation. Its cropped so you can show your hot stomach and belly chain, and the coolest part is you can even get a matching bikini set to go with it!

And lastly I figured I would wrap this article up with the top featured in the cover image.

@omweekend

aloha boob tube from OMIGHTY in green

The fun part about this tube top is not only is it super comfy, but it has matching flare pants and the set comes in a bunch of colors. You can really live out your Y2K summer dreams in this one.
