Sweater: JCrew (Similar)      Jeans: Paige Denim  Vest: TJ Max   Shoes: Steve Madden    Scarf: JCrew (Similar)   Bracelet: Miero

I decided to sport a faux fur vest today. It kept me warm without overheating in this cool fall weather. I paired it with a crew neck cream sweater, some coated olive color jeans, and a black and white scarf. I paired this outfit with leopard flats and my new Miero bracelet!

Miero bracelets are the perfect accessory to pair with any outfit. It is personalized with your own saying or quote and comes in different styles and colors.



They are perfect for you or a friend! Definitely a trend I’ll be sporting with every outfit! Will you?!

Rainy Days, Stuck Inside….

With all of these gloomy days, I have spent my time stuck inside trying to find something to do. My main task:  organizing my clothes and shoes. But just because I was stuck inside does not mean that I don’t have my style game going!

On these rainy days, I usually like to bundle up and keep extra cozy. I am wearing a long sweater length dress with faux leather detailing. I paired a cranberry pair of cotton leggings, changing up the look, as well as added a black and white checkered scarf. Rain boots were a must, especially with my black Hunters. Accessories were kept limited with only a bracelet and studs.

A black sweater is a necessary staple piece, especially for this fall. This shirt is so comfy, but still has that “put together” look. The leggings add a nice untraditional flare, since all black would have just been boring. I also recommend investing in a pair of wellies! Whether they are Hunters or another brand, in this weather they are a must to keeping your feet dry!

On these rainy days, do not forget to dress fabulous, while still feeling comfortable!

First Day!

It has been weeks since I have done a blog, but I am finally back to do more! I have been getting settled into a new environment and am so so happy! First day of classes or work is very important, so it is important to dress the part too! Below is my outfit of the day!

I wanted a casual, yet cute look with a touch of sparkle. I am wearing a chambray shirt from Jcrew (Similar) with a pair of jean cut off shorts (Similar). I added a sparkly head band, some flat sandals, and my new Tory Burch bag.

This look is so comfy and cute for a day at class or out! For work, I would recommend pairing the blouse with a pair of dress pants or a pencil skirt!

Enjoy your first days of class, school, or work! Remember to feel confident in whatever you wear!

The Blue Jean Blues

Happy Saturday! Although it may be rainy in some parts of the east coast, this did not stop me from having a wonderful day! And of course, there was no slacking on the hair, makeup, and outfit! Let’s just say the rain was a good excuse to pull out the worn jeans and rock them on this very blue day!

Today, I chose to wear a pair of legging style skinny jeans in a light blue with bleach marks around the leg. The worn look was a great feeling for today’s very dreary tone. I paired the pants with a 3/4 sleeve stripe knit, tucked in just a bit in the front! I added on a mint jewel statement necklace for a girly touch and wore my black hunter rain boots for necessary rain protection! Makeup and hair had to be done full out too! I curled my hair with a one inch curling iron, wrapping each piece separately around the barrel. Don’t forget the hairspray! That is the only reason my hair stayed in place all day, even in the rain! It also helps if your hair is not freshly washed or straightened! For makeup, I did a simple matte face, with limited contouring, some highlighting, but a lot of glow! I did a plain black liquid liner with a wing, a bit of coco line on the bottom, and plenty of black mascara! Can’t forget about the lashes!

This look is perfection! It was so easy to throw a rain coat on over and go, but it will also work great on a warmer day with flats or sandals! Switching up the look, you could add a scarf or long pendent necklace, or even some bangles in replacement of the statement piece! Just don’t over accessorize!

Try this look! Light denim is the trick, especially with the warmer months hopefully on their way! Until next time!

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!

Classy and Sassy: A J-Crew Obsession

Like many other girls, I have a J-Crew obsession. Their timeless, elegant pieces are worth being recognized and worn by every beautiful woman. I rarely wear their pieces together, but when I do, it is worth documenting! Throw together a couple of their classic pieces, and you too can feel classy without losing your sassiness.

I am wearing a red, cotton blouse with a “flannel pattern” as I like to call it. The blouse is very light and not heavy like a flannel, which is great for days when you want the flannel look, but not the flannel feel. I paired it with a simple, light gray skirt, which has an elastic waist at the hips. Pair these with some black, opaque tights and brown riding boots, and you are almost ready! I wanted to tie in one of my favorite Leavitt and Co pieces also (as seen in my previous blog Fun with Color), so I am wearing the Babs Flower Necklace in turquoise. It adds a nice pop and contrast to the blouse, pulling out the hints of blue in the stripes. I also added a romantic touch with my coral lips, making it girly with some sass.

Although J-Crew is pricey for most people, I completely understand. I can’t afford their pieces at regular price. So, my trick? Hit the sales! J-Crew, like other high end stores, have fantastic sales. I got this blouse and another short the other day for a great deal! They were giving an additional 50% off all their already marked down sale items! It was fantastic! They also give discounts to students! So, if you are a “broke” college student, have no fear! You can find a way!

So try a semi-preppy, classic look! You will be surprised at how easy it is to combine easy, timeless pieces and make a fabulous outfit!
