From Work to the Weekend: Dressing Down the Blazer

Pat yourself on the back because you’ve survived the work week! You’ve successfully dealt with entitled customers and you’re still employed. Your boss tried you multiple times and you handled it well enough to still be employed. Your coworkers are trash, in life and at their job, which affects you doing your job, but guess what? You didn’t …

Holiday Nostalgia

Meeeeeeeeerry Christmas! I’ll tell ya, the holidays as an adult really bring on a bit of nostalgia to my much simpler childhood. My siblings and I were brought up in a household with parents that wanted us to have a memorable holiday every year - so much, I’ll say they went to fairly great lengths to make sure that it happened. I remember one year, probably around that age …

Dress the Part

I’m sure just about every adult has had a job interview before. Probably multiple if you’ve had your fair share of entry-level jobs like myself. While employed at my most recent job, I learned that there are a lot of women out there that don’t know how to dress for an interview - it’s not like it’s something that you’re taught in school, so I can’t really judge them …

A Brunch of Jumpers

It. Feels. Great. To be back in my happy place and doing something I love. I’d felt so uninspired and unmotivated the past few months that I almost forgot how much I enjoyed my solo photoshoots and putting out new content. I’ve always considered myself a really good multi-tasker, but when it comes to balancing school and blogging, especially in my final semester, I just cannot do it. This has, by far …

When Life Gives You Lemons ...

... SLAP THOSE BAD BOYS ON A 2-PIECE MATCHING SET AND WEAR THEM!


Or you could just make lemonade. 

Honestly, whatever floats your boat. I'll admit, I'm typically an "add lemon slices to your water to instantly make everything better" kind of girl. You're breaking out? Lemon …

Sun's Out ... Shoulders Out

Sun's out, shoulders out because we keep our buns to ourselves around here. Though if it was legal, I'd probably do away with clothing and have all the goods hanging out. It's honestly too hot for skin at this point, so even the thinnest layer of clothing is …

Ruffled & Embroidered

And to think there was a time that I absolutely despised ruffles. I think what turned me away from them was how frilly and girly they are; as far as I know I never went through an actual tom-boy phase, so my femininity was always there I just had to draw the line somewhere ... and ruffles just didn't make the cut. Maybe they were just a little too extra for my taste at the time. I know you all must think very highly of my style and …

Match Made in Heaven

Please tell me how often it is that you find a top, or any garment for that matter, that is a perfect match for a pair of extra ass shoes that you have? I'm talking color for color and the shades being just about spot on. Not that I feel like I would have had trouble finding something to match these shoes; just about every …

A Little Leather Never Hurt Nobody

So ... I did a thing. A very out of character thing. I ... wore this outfit twice. Three times if you want to include the day that I put it on for the sake of taking these pictures. The first time was when I went to Tennessee about a month ago, which I'm pretty sure I mentioned to you guys in my last post. It was almost exactly the same as what y'all are seeing right now, just accessorized slightly different and with a bomb ...

Minimalista

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a minimalist. It sounds great on paper, referring to the people that have a handful of belongings and a tiny house that they can take just about anywhere when they travel. Watching the "Tiny House" edition of House Hunters had me intrigued, and I very briefly thought ...

Campus Style: I'm Wearing Sneakers!

You're probably wondering why it's such a huge feat for me to be wearing sneakers. Truth be told, it's honestly not. But there are a few reasons why I made it seem like it was. First and foremost, I hardly ever wear sneakers. And when I do it is in a very bummy fashion. So I feel pretty darn good to have had the motivation to put this together at the crack of dawn ...

A Merry, Thrifty Christmas

Is it just me or was this the least Christmas-y Christmas ever? Literally four days before Christmas I told myself that it was probably time to start doing some shopping, and that was the first time I thought about it the entire holiday season. Maybe it's because spending money I deep down didn't have was ...

Did Someone Say Brunch?

Would you believe me if I said I've technically never gone out for brunch ...  until today? Twenty one years of life,  hundreds of dollars spent on food, and none of it was ever for brunch. Most of the time I'm just unavailable during those hours, so that has a lot to do with it honestly. Plus, is it really brunch without ...

Campus Style: With a Pop of Rose Gold

You know, it isn't as easy as you would think to put in the effort to look decent for class. When the school year first started, and when I first announced my #CampusStyle series, I vowed to put my bummy ways to the side and start dressing like a person who'll have a degree in fashion in a year and a half.  I'll say that lasted for ...

White Jeans After Labor Day

I don't even know where I first heard the completely ridiculous rule of not wearing white after Labor Day. And I've never cared enough to actually look into it to see if I could possibly have a change in heart. If I'm in the mood to wear something, there are ...

Striped Obsessed

Stripes are definitely my favorite print for the season, for the year, and to be completely honest, for life. I don't know what it is about them, but I am going mad over any and everything that is striped in black and white. I'm thinking ...
