Last Friday, I had to attend an event in Michigan for my dad. Some people were wearing dresses ,but it was so cold so I choose a more business casual type outfit. **Please excuse the background, it’s very hard to find a nice place to take pictures there, so I chose a hallway…sorry!** However, I wear this look a lot and it’s comfortable, but very presentable. This jacket goes everywhere with me and can be dressed up or down depending on the event/day. The longer blouse underneath is nice and dressy, as well as the nicer leggings from Zara. Cheetah flats always complete a look and add a nice pop, as well as the red bag.

If you need to look more dressed up, but don’t feel like wearing dresses, tight clothes, etc..this is the perfect look for you.

~~this is one of my favorite quotes by one of my favorite old actresses..don’t worry about what other people are doing or what other people are wearing, just be yourself. wear what you want, and set your own style up and don’t copy others all the time…just use them for inspiration sometimes but make your style (and your life) all yours and nobody else’s

~~have a great week!

the cold is coming

Fall is here, and it is cold. Today was a bit of a shock to me. Today’s outfit is on the neutrals/casual side. Sweater jackets are going to be essential this season. Pair it with jeans/cargos/colored jeans and you are set. I didn’t add many accessories today since I was almost late to class, but accessories are huge this fall. My next few posts will include more accessories, but for now, just the basics. Olive green pants are great all year round, and right now they are still on trend. I like pairing white, black, or grey with them. Throw on boots, flats, or casual tennis shoes and you are good to go.

Happy fall, stay warm, and stylish!

How to make things look pretty and organized

Organization is an easy way to make products look pretty and neat. The first few pictures are of a silver tray I bought from Hobby Lobby. These trays are essential to making things look organized, but pretty. You can put as many or as little objects as you want. I chose a candle, some perfume bottles, a couple bracelets, my favorite sunglasses and a couple little objects. Silver trays are useful for nightstands, dressers or vanities. I have mine on top of my vanity, and it adds character and style to it.

The next couple pictures are of a little black and silver tray from Target. I put my everyday jewelry on it so it is organized and easy to grab in a hurry. This is very easy to buy, and put a couple little things on depending on what you like to use everyday or display.

The next pictures are my makeup organizer. You can buy these anywhere…Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, or TJ Maxx. I store a lot of products here, and it may look like too many, but they are essential for everyday use. These are easy to buy, and make organization very easy!

What do you think? How do you organize all your products?

following Fashion Week

My dream one day is to be apart of New York Fashion Week. Until now, I can only keep up-to-date on all the shows and street style. Newyorkfashionweeklive.com and style.com are my go-to sources for this week. You can watch the runway shows, look at slideshows of the collections and follow the day by day guide. I also follow a lot of blogs on BlogLovin such as Fashionista, Who What Wear, WWD, and bloggers that are in attendance such as Glam and Glitter, Sincerely Jules, and so many more. I suggest all you fashionistas look at these websites and follow some bloggers to get the inside scoop.

My favorite shows so far include Kate Spade New York, Jason Wu, Joie, Rebecca Minkoff, BCBG Max Azria, and Zac Posen. I suggest you all look at the slideshows and live feeds and see for yourself!

What are your favorite shows so far?

casual stripes and distressed denim

Today was all about being casual and comfy. This black and white striped tee is so versatile and can be worn with many different things. Yesterday I wore distressed denim jeans, and today, distressed jean shorts. White pants is also a great alternative for this shirt. The camo tennis shoes are different and add an edgy vibe. Somedays we just need to be comfortable and distressed denim shorts and a casual tee do the trick. If you ever feel like your outfit is a little plain, then add a statement necklace and some jewelry, and it works every time.

chambray and white~always a classic

I’ve worn these white pants a decent amount on Posh Prime, but I can’t get enough of them. I’m trying to wear them as much as I can before summer ends Today I paired them with a classic chambray tank top and a cute statement necklace. The shoes are a great neutral with some fun added by the rhinestones and the gold belt matches as well. The high pony makes the outfit seem classier because my hair isn’t in my face.

What do you like to wear with your white denim?

animal prints are easy

Weekend shopping trips bring about new outfits and new ideas. Animal prints are so easy, because it gives you a statement piece, but allows easy neutrals as well. These giraffe print shorts from C. Wonder are so simple, yet classy and cute. I got them on sale for $19 and love them! They are comfy, and can be worn with a simple top. I prefer white since the print is brown and white. White pops with the pattern and the white shoes brings it all together. I decided not to wear a necklace today because it is simply too much with the shorts.

As Coco Chanel said, “Before leaving the house, a lady should look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” SO…I kept it simple on jewelry today, because simple is always the best.

~Enjoy the rest of Summer weather before it’s too late~ Also! C.Wonder is having 50% off all sale items!

“no white after Labor Day”

What’s that rule? No white after Labor Day? I say whatever! It’s Labor Day and it’s not the last day I will be wearing my white pants. White pants will last through the rest of the warm weather and a little into the fall. Why? Because white is timeless, classy, and goes with a lot. You can wear boots in the fall with a light sweater and you’ll have a great outfit. Fashion rules aren’t always applicable to weather, so do what you want! I like the stripes with white, and I got the idea from Morgan on the Rich Kids of Beverly Hills. I think another cute option is a white and blue striped shirt or sweater as well. The Tory Burch wedges make it a little more dressy, but any sandals/flats can be worn as well.

~~Don’t always follow the rules, or you will miss out on some great outfits~~

Fact- Coco Chanel wore white all year long, so of course this is a great rule to break.

for all shopping addicts

A trip to the mall is either stressful or fantastic. Yesterday I experienced both feelings while shopping. I always stress about whether or not to buy things and almost always end up walking back into a store to buy it. The mall is one of my favorite places, full of clothes and shoes I want/need. I try to budget myself so I don’t blow everything I make but sometimes it’s hard.(We all know it is!) Luckily, lots of Labor Day sales are going on. C Wonder has 50% off all clearance items so of course you have to buy something! I purchased an outfit I will be posting this week. Nordstrom Rack has 25% off already marked down items, including some great designer denim. Nordstrom has new items that are 40% off as well. J.Crew, one of my favs, had 40% off clearance as well, so I bought a much needed basic from there. Free People also had 20% off their sale so naturally I had to buy a unique sweater I will be wearing in the Fall. Anyways, I encourage all you shopaholics to look at your favorite store websites, or actual stores, and be thrifty! Sale items are the best items.

This quote speaks to all of us who love to shop. I always think about everything I wanted and didn’t buy when at the mall, and it continues to “haunt” me. When in doubt, buy it online!

Have a great sale Sunday!
