Four more classes left, one philosophy paper to write, and a psychology test to take and then it’s finally time to hop on a train to New York City, again.  Remember when I mentioned LivForStyle was heading on some crazy adventures?  Well in today’s post I will be talking about one of those events. Catch me at College Fashion Week this Saturday, October 1st from 6-9 p.m. at Venue 404 in New York City.  Are you interested in attending?  Keep reading for more information on an event, you won’t want to miss.          It’s crazy to think that this is my last year as a college student, so obviously when I was invited to College Fashion Week, I was like HECK YES!  What’s better than going to a fashion show with fellow style obsessed collegiattes?  Thanks to Her Campus Media, my dreams are coming true and I can’t wait to be part of Her Campus’s fifth annual College Fashion Week.          For all those who are not familiar with College Fashion Week, it is a show celebrating fashionistas in a fun and empowering way.  This year, the show features up and coming designers, including My Social Canvas, Foray, Ali…

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 I can agree on is that my outfit is super casual and trendy, featuring two popular trends for this fall, graphics and chokers. Every time I go into Target for just “one” thing, it turns into a shopping spree. On my last trip to Target, I found these high-waisted skinny jeans. Just like the floral print, the camo print never goes out of style. Usually I would have just paired my jeans with a simple white, black, or gray t-shirt, but I decided to add a graphic tee to add some more edge to my style and my StyleWe graphic t-shirt is perfect for this…

If you get the essentials right, it’s much easier to build versatile, stylish outfits. As the cooler weather approaches, it’s time to invest in warm layers. Think long-sleeved crew neck tops and polo necks. Add some opaque tights and a few well-fitted pairs of jeans, and you’ve got the foundations pinned down.

(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 more time to blog, and vacationing to the Hamptons a few times. In today’s post, I am showing you one of my favorite summer outfits that can be easily transitioned into the fall. It took me some time to warm up to the flared leg trend, but I am obsessed with all things flared. What struck me the most about my Madewell pants is the flared detail and the beautiful rose color. I believe this deep rose color will be perfect for the fall. The color kind of reminds me of the leaves soon to be turning colors. Since I am “new” to the flared…

The fashion world has been going nuts over the re- launch of a very popular at the start of the decade; I am talking about the matching velour Juicy Couture jumpsuit. Paris Hilton, Mariah Carey, Kim K, Brittany Spears, and many other celebs loved to model the Juicy Couture velour tracksuits back in the 2000s. It was because of these celebs, that at every birthday and Christmas I would always ask my parents for one of these most coveted fashion items. Sadly, I was never the girl rocking the popular hot pink tracksuit with the dangling J on the zipper. In fact, I was not mad at my parents for not buying me a Juicy jump suit; I loved wearing my knockoff velour suits from places like Old Navy and The Children’s Place. I could get like 10 jumpsuits for the price of one Juicy Couture tracksuit. But sadly, since I wore the jumpsuits without the J charm, I was not considered “cool,” oh well.   For $200, my parents would rather not spend it on a piece of fabric that was just a trend, and boy were they right because within a short time, the matchy match jumpsuit was no…
