Gardens and Roses

Beautiful fall days make me reminisce of times when I was a child and playing in the garden. The flowers and petals, bushes and foliage make me feel right at home in the city. Today’s fall look was perfect for a day spent with the calmness of sweet grass and large oaks.

I am wearing a gray, knit sweater with a high/low hem. I paired it with a pair of olive, coated denim and added a leopard scarf. I wore a nice pair of chestnut riding boots (my favorite) and finished the look with a wide brim black hat, and my Tory Burch tote!

This look is so easy and casual! The weather was perfectly crisp, so luckily I didn’t need a heavy coat! Also, coated denim is probably my favorite for this fall! They are very comfy jeans, but have a little extra flare, almost like leather.

Make a day to spend outside with beautiful trees or flowers! Soon it’ll be winter, and all there will be is the crisp, white snow.

Shades of Summer

I slowly, but surely feel my style transforming into the true summer vibe. With my skin getting tanner and my makeup being applied less and less, I’m turning to my closet to form outfits that show my love of the summer heat and bright skies. My fave item lately?! Light weight pattern shorts! Throw it on with a loose fitting top, and your outfit is complete!

I am wearing a pair of daisy pink pattern shorts with a cream background! The shorts are a light material with pockets and an elastic waist band! They can be worn higher or lower depending on your mood! I paired a simple, white sleeveless blouse with a V in the front. To accessorize, I paired my gold and peach face Fossil watch, a pair of simple sandals, a pair of white drop earrings, and my translucent brown baroque style sunnies. Makeup was kept on the more pink/peach side today, and hair was left straight!

If you do not have a pair of these shorts in your closet, then I recommend getting a bunch of them! They are so comfy, yet so stylish! They can be worn casual with a loose crop top to the beach or worn more put together with a strappy sandal and loose blouse like I did! Accessorizing is key to transforming this pair of shorts from easygoing to very dolled up! Mine are from a store located in Charleston, SC called Willy Jay’s! Check them out on Facebook or Instagram! They also have a website that I’ll link below.

Find a fun pattern that you love and wear them everywhere! I promise you, these shorts will change your life!

Stars and Stripes

Memorial day is coming up, so why not show a little patriotism?! I wasn’t technically trying to, but when a lady approached me and asked if I was gearing up for next weekend, I thought why not?!

This outfit can be worn on any day of course! I am wearing a pair of star patterned jeans! They can either be worn as regular skinnies or capri’s! I paired a light, white sleeveless blouse and some cute flat sandals! The hair was just worn simply straight today, along with some classic Rayban aviators!

Today was fairly warm, but this outfit was perfect! Never once did I feel too overheated or blah! I felt put together, and the pattered pants added a nice touch to a simple look!

I want to see your best patriotic look! Whether it’s for a holiday or everyday, show your love for your country in a stylish and affordable way!

Relieve Your Stress with Style!

In the midst of midterms, I find myself styling outfits better than regular days when I am not under the stress and pressure. Weird, right? I sure think so. However, when I think about it, it makes sense. Fashion and style is an outlet for me. In the times of major studying and stress, I find fashion as a release. I online shop more to relax, and put together more outfit combos in much shorter periods of time! Maybe I should take midterms more often… Not!

One of the outfits I magically put together in little time at all is this adorable sweater and blouse overlay. I’ve been dying to try this out for a while! I am wearing a cream, wool sweater with button shoulder detailing. I then layered a citrus green sleeveless blouse with ruffle collar and bow tie in the front. When layering, I made sure to pull the entire collar out for exposure and adjusted the bow to sit just right on the front, since it’s a crew neck sweater not a V-neck sweater. I paired this with my favorite dark, stretch jeggings and a pair of my new camel suede booties. To add a little sparkle, I wore an adorable jeweled headband and finished the entire look with a quilted, two-toned leather tote with a chain handle.

I absolutely adore this outfit! Layering is a perfect way to change up how you wear an item. Many people wouldn’t think to layer a blouse of such a prominent color and collar with such a simple, basic sweater. It’s an outfit you can wear out everyday or even to work! Just remember, as long as you feel confident, then that is all that matters!

Fun With Color

I have always been a fan of black and white. Looking in my closet, it is the majority of my pieces. However, wearing black and white straight up is plain boring! You have to have fun and use it to your advantage! Add pops of color with big, statement necklaces!

Over the past year, I have discovered an amazing jewelry and clothing company. Leavitt and Co is a close to home company that sells gorgeous and fashionable pieces. Dana Leavitt herself is so chic, and you can tell has fun with all of her jewelry!

I am wearing some of her newer pieces, which can be found at the link below! My favorites would be the the Babs Flower necklace in pink and turquoise. This is a steal at $34. I love how you can wear it with a T-shirt or a loose white blouse. Another fave is the Mint Cameran Necklace. The layers of beads are such a statement piece and would turn any bland outfit into a fun candy-coated explosion. This is also priced at $34. I am also seen wearing the Moxey Statement Necklace, which is such a spin off of a classic old hollywood piece! This is reasonably priced at $36. Each piece may come in different colors, along with matching bracelets or earrings.

Her site is so cute and definitely worth checking out! The J-Crew inspired pieces are perfect for a girl on the budget and on the go!

Jewelry is a necessity for every girl, so check out Leavitt and Co for amazing jewelry and steals! It’s worth it!

Toughen up!

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with army inspired clothing. Camo, army boots, and military jackets are just a few of the many items I am growing to love! Pair them with something girly and you too can add a little edge to your wardrobe!

To toughen up my look, I am wearing my army green military jacket, which comes with a tucked in hood and the ability to tighten the waist! This color looks good with nearly anything. Underneath, I paired my cranberry blouse and topped off the look with my black and white scarf. On the bottom, I wore a pair of dark skinny jeans and my short, spiked boots, which I’ve been loving lately! To finish the look, I pulled my hair back and wore my Tory Burch wristband!

This is definitely one of my favorite looks! I wear this jacket in nearly every season, and it never gets old! I love the way it looks with layers, and it even keeps you warm!

So toughen up your wardrobe and add some pieces that will bring a little edge to any outfit!

Bold Bottoms

Lately, I have been a huge fan of very bold patterns on pants. You saw me sport my camo pants in a previous blog, which I wear religiously. I love pants with a very defined pattern because it’s an easy way to sport a cute outfit and be adventurous!

Trust me, if people are looking at your bold pants, it is a good thing. I am wearing my “artsy” skinny toothpicks that cut off right at the ankle. The reason I say they are artsy is because it looks as though someone painted water colors on my denim. There are multiple designs and patterns, which grace the front and back of my bottoms. I then paired them with an interesting top combo. Peplums are one of my favorite trends, however most of mine are for the summer. What’s a girl to do? I wore my cream, peplum shirt with a zip-up back and layered a royal blue crop sweater over it. The two flow perfectly on my body and are just the right amount of layering to keep me warm. The peplum hem even allows the shirt to have a little shape as it poofs out a bit! I threw on a long necklace (mine has a key) and some short, biker boots with spike detailing.

This outfit took me only five minutes to pick out, and it’s probably one of my favorites so far. I love how the pants are the main statement piece. I feel like nowadays people always focus on wearing a bold top or accessory to make an outfit pop. But with a bold set of bottoms, you can add a little pop to your outfit without doing as everyone else does!

I know some people may be concerned about how the pattern will make them look. Trust me, I completely understand. I am a girl with hips and butt and would always shy away from a patterned pair of pants. I’ve learned that it all depends on the bold pair that you choose. If you are one who is worried about it making you look larger, try wearing a solid color that pops or even a very subtle and simple pattern. It doesn’t have to be over the top, but just enough to be the main focus in your outfit!

So try something new, and wear a bold bottom! You could be surprised at how one pattern may change your life and wardrobe!
