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 of Michelle (Michelle’s Pa(i)ge) and Ana’s (Northwest Blonde) weekly link up post.  Our last link up together was our post all about boho styles.  To refresh your memory click here and don’t forget to check out Michelle and Ana’s blog for more style inspiration. Keep reading to see one of my many summer dresses that has been on repeat. So the star of this look is of course my summer dress.  I am obsessed with my new tie-dye dress from Zara.  I love the warm colors, resembling a desert scene.  And now with my blonde hair this has become my go-to color palette. I believe…

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, so make sure to check them out. I always feel fashion forward when I wear flared pants, especially with a wild and colorful pattern. I have to admit, I always feel like people on the street are going to mistaken these pants for pajamas, but then I think these are way to stylish to be pajamas. I love my flowing pants from Target, especially the bold print and colors. I feel like any hippie would be caught wearing these pants because they are comfy, trendy, and perfect for any free spirit. I kept the top simple because what could compete with these pants. I am…

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 being home, getting back to blogging, and preparing for another summer working in New York City. Everyone always tells me that I have my life together and I like to think I do, but there are still days where I wake up frazzled, overwhelmed with ideas and stressed to make sure each day is productive, so hey if I am going to be a mess, might as well call me a hot mess. My life motto there and it should be yours too. Remember routines and schedules can make life boring, so whenever you can embrace that “hot mess” side of you, it will make…

I have been stressing for a week now over my first biology test of the semester.  I have not taken a physical science course since high school, so it makes sense why I am stressing.  Liv and science just doesn’t mix well.  After a night of studying, I finished my biology exam in 20 minutes.  The 50 multiple-choice questions were basic, so fingers crossed I hope I aced the test.          Since I finished my exam quickly, I had extra time in my schedule to relax before my next class, so what better way to relax than write a very short style post for you all.          It’s not a long post, since I have to get back to work and read Act 2 of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night (BORING).  I wanted to show you all what I normally wear to class.  I call it my campus style.  Usually the night before I mentally plan my outfit for the next day.  This way when my alarm goes off and I am still in a daze, I can rub my sleepy eyes and have some idea of what to wear for the day. I have sort of a “formula” in dressing for…

I am certain that everyone has experienced sadness, disappointment, lack of motivation, and so on. It’s only natural, we are human. I am a big fan of quotes. Whenever I feel stuck or down in the dumps I always head to Pinterest (CLICK HERE TO FOLLOW ME ON PINTEREST) and find some inspiring words and phrases to help me keep going. This brings me to the theme of today’s post. It was inspired by one of my recently discovered quotes “No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up, and never give up.” After reading this phrase, I decided to pull myself together, head to my closet and pick out an outfit that makes me look good and feel good. Of course, I had to choose my faux fur vest. My Design Lab faux fur vest just radiates confidence. I love the color blocked detail, featuring shades of red, cream, black, and tan. Such a versatile piece you can layer it over a dress, pair it with leather pants, or a simple pair of jeans, like I did today. These are not just any pair of jeans, they are my new favorite high-riser jeans from Madewell. The soft…
