Walking into your favorite clothing store, I am certain you will find an extensive selection of kimonos. Kimonos long, short, patterned, colorful and some maybe with fringe or tassels, so it’s safe to say you will find a kimono that will suit your personal style. I like to call kimonos the summer sweater. They aren’t as heavy as a sweater so you can wear them in the summer heat without dying of heatstroke. They’re just a light piece of fabric that perfectly drapes your body to complete any outfit. My favorite way to wear a kimono is with a simple dress. I like this approach because sometimes dresses can just be boring without proper accessorizing. Kimonos are the perfect way to finish off a look and add more style. I’ve had the best luck finding kimonos at Forever 21, H&M, Cotton On, and TJMaxx. But like I said kimonos are so popular this season you can pretty much find a kimono anywhere. I love kimonos that feature beautiful prints, lovely colors and maybe even some fringe detailing. I usually go with kimonos that have some sort of neutral color present like black, gray, or cream. The neutral colors allow me…

Where did the time go? It’s hard to believe that I finished my last week of classes of my sophomore year of college. It’s been a good semester, filled with lots of fun and of course hard-work. I want to capture one last stylish outfit for what to wear to class before finals begin this week because then I will be living in leggings and t-shirts. For the most part, I like to look nice for my classes. Although, I am up early for my classes, I still get excited going through my closet and putting together outfits for the day. When I feel stylish, I feel more confident, and more motivated to take on my busy day. On sunny days with temps in the mid 60s, I enjoy wearing a pair of skinny jeans, a short-sleeved shirt, and of course my Converse sneakers. An outfit like this is casual and comfortable for class but not as basic as your typical sweatpants look. I’m a huge fan of Madewell denim, so naturally I have been enjoying these new jeans from their spring collection. I can’t get enough of their skinny jeans they call the painter editors because of their artfully…

It is officially spring and how I wish the weather could be warmer and sunnier. I have never been so happy to see grass. To be honest, I almost forgot what grass looked like after our long snowy winter. Now that it is spring, it is time to embrace the spring trends. One of my favorite things to do is visit my favorite clothing stores, view their products, and figure out what trends are popular this season. After countless visits to my favorite stores and many hours spent online shopping, I have come up with a list of the trendiest of trends for spring 2015. Take a look at what follows to see what I’m thinking.  1. Fringe Hands down, fringe is one of my favorite trends this season. Fringe resembles that boho chic style, of which I am a huge fan. I love how you can incorporate this trend into any part of your outfit. Think sweaters, kimonos, jackets, purses, and of course necklaces. 2. 70s Vibe When I think of 1970s fashion, I think bohemian and disco. For the bohemian style, I recommend investing in a pair of flared jeans. Style flared pants with a paisley patterned blouse,…
