song obsession: all about that bass

Have you ever just heard a song and thought - I love this? That happened to me recently. The song? Meghan Trainor's, "All About That Bass." I randomly saw the video posted somewhere and decided to watch it. I'm so glad that I did. The song has this amazing retro flair, a bold hook, and lyrics you can't overlook. One thing I really love? The song manages to take issues related to body image and turn it into a total toe tapper. It is fun, flirty, and empowering.

The music video is just as amazing. The colours are bright and girly, the style is cute and 60s inspired, and the dancing is flawless. All of the amazing visuals added to the fun and flirty vibe of the song. Honestly? The video inspired me so much that I've watched it dozens of times by now! I definitely want to re-create one of her looks! I love the pastel shades, the layering, and of courses, the stunning makeup.

Before I post some of my favourite outfits from the music video, I should probably post the video itself! Take a listen if you haven't already.

Now for the fun stuff! There were a lot of really beautiful outfits from the music video. These are a couple of my favourites......

As you can see from the look above, she is sporting pink and purple pastels with white and turquoise accents. I love the layering of the cardigan and skirt, those cute earrings, and yes - the floral crown. There is something about the floral crown that just makes me giddy. It is so cute, fresh, and fun. I love that this video is all about embracing femininity.

Annnnd  my second favourite look? Thee blue layered dress. I love the idea of throwing a blouse underneath a dress. It created such a cute contrast! Plus, that headscarf is super cute. I just adore the retro feel of this outfit in particular. Meghan (and all of the other girls in the video) look so fresh and cute. I cannot stress enough how obsessed I am with all of it.

So, that is my song obsession of the moment. I can't stop listening to it! The song itself is inspiring, it makes me laugh, and the music video makes me want to totally re-work my wardrobe. I've only heard one song by Meghan Trainor, but I would definitely call myself a fan.

What do you think of this song? Do you love the outfits from the music video?
