A brief break between classes calls for a short style post. It’s tough trying to be a full-time college student and blogger, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. Keep reading to see one of my favorite outfits that I have been wearing to class during the day and when I go out for some evening fun. Graphic tee, camo pants, Vans, and a choker is the recipe for a cool girl outfit. I keep going back and forth about today’s outfit. Not sure if it’s considered sporty or edgy? Or both? One thing…

(Sigh) Why can’t summer last forever? It seems like the season takes forever to get here, and when it does finally arrive, it leaves in a blink of an eye. I know the official end to summer isn’t until the end of September but I realized the days are getting shorter and the kiddies are back in school (same with me) but I can’t complain because I had one of the best summers ever. Some of the highlights of my summer include interning with a great fashion company, learning tons about the fashion industry, having…

I’m not a real fan of nature.  Sure I love spending summer days by the pool or beach or walk aside a pigeon in New York City but that is about how outdoorsy I’ll get.  You won’t find me hiking or camping but I heard from friends who participate in those activities that it’s tons of fun. I don’t want to limit myself to any new adventures so today I decided to go on a mini hike and by mini hike I mean go explore the lake and wooded area of my friends backyard.  It’s…

Raise your hand if you took full advantage of the Zara sale this year. If you saw me right now, you would see both of my hands raised because I totally went nuts over the Zara sale. The annual Zara sale usually starts in June and lasts until what it seems like when they run of out sale merchandise. Practically all their merchandise is marked down. A fashionistas dream. However, if you missed this sale, I believe there is a very, very limited selection of sale items in stores and online. But don’t worry because…

Technically summer doesn’t officially end until the end of September but in the retail world it seems like after Fourth of July they switch to back to school and fall fashion mode. As much as I hate the thought of summer ending I’m trying to look on the bright side and focus on my love for fall fashion and of course the end of summer sales. Although most of the sales involve summer merchandise like shorts, rompers, tanks, and so on, with the art of layering you can certainly transition those pieces into the fall.…

One of the many things I learned from spending two summers interning in New York City with prestigious fashion companies is that trends like to repeat themselves. Every season it seems like fashion trends in a particular decade come back again. Almost like the expression history repeats itself, it seems like fashion does too. This season is all about the 70s with the flared jeans, the 80s with patches (click here to see how I completely transformed a denim jacket with a few patches) and you can’t forget chokers for that 90s grunge. I always…

It’s a jungle out there. Just kidding it’s just my backyard, but my blouse certainly gives me jungle fever. I’m embracing the wild side of me in today’s post. Instead of just featuring the cheetah print pattern why not feature the whole animal and several of them. Keep on reading to explore my outfit details and the jungle behind me… Who knows what I might find. How fierce is this white button down blouse from Madewell? The cheetahs really make this outfit. Without the cheetahs it would just be a plain white button down…BORING! Busy…

What’s summer without a collection of your favorite summer dresses hanging in your closet?  In the fashion dictionary, a summer dress has no true definition.  A summer dress can be pretty much anything you want.  Long or short with patterns and texture like denim, lace, crochet, floral, gingham, geometric, and the list goes on.  Anyone can find their perfect summer dress.  A dress so light, so easy to style, but yet captures your true personality. I know two fabulous bloggers who really know how to rock summer dresses.  I am so excited to be part…

It’s not hard to tell from my three back-to-back denim related posts, that lately I’m obsessing over all things denim. Sarcasm aside denim is a major staple in any wardrobe. Today I’m not focusing on jeans or a denim dress but an oversized vintage denim jacket to which I added my own personal style. Overall, this outfit just makes me feel cool. I’m convinced it is the jean jacket because it is not an ordinary denim jacket but a denim jacket with a variety of patches. I discovered that iron on patches were a huge…

We all know the popular combos like oil and vinegar, peanut butter and jelly, fire and ice, milk and cookies, and so on. In the fashion world, I have discovered some combos that work so well together, including denim and leopard, hence the name of this post. The denim trend is so hot this season. Lately, head to toe denim is the way to dress, which is why I love my denim dress from Forever 21. It has easily become my summer staple because of the endless ways to style this dress. It’s a simple…

Boho chic is defined as a type of style being influenced by bohemian and hippie looks. Think floral prints, warm colors, fringe, round sunglasses, flowing pants and skirts, and so on. Look to celebs like Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Vanessa Hudgens, and Nicole Richie for inspiration. I am so excited to be the co-host of Michelle (Michelle’s Pa(i)ge) and Ana’s (Northwest Blonde) weekly link up post. It’s an honor to be part of this fun theme because it is so me. I love the boho style and these ladies certainly know how to dress,…

Last week was crazy; I finished my junior year of college and turned 21, all on the same day. I think I had one to many margaritas on my birthday because I am still recovering from the festivities. Not to mention that ending a school year means packing up all my stuff at school and moving back home. My room these last couple of days perfectly describes my life as messy and in shambles. But just like I can get my room all nice and tidy, I am starting to get in the groove of…

When life gets boring…add color. As much as I stick to my neutral colors, I can’t help but to incorporate more color into my looks especially when I have been bombarded with the signs of spring…warm weather, sunshine, and the abundance of flowers. After all, the right pop of color in any look makes for the perfect statement. Lately, I’ve been really getting into thrift shopping and hitting up consignment shops, instead of the usual Forever 21. Something about these types of stores really get me excited because you never know what treasures you will…
