Daylight saving time has really hit me hard. And, in case you didn’t know it is “saving” not “savings.” It’s been a week and I still can’t get used to the time change. Walking back from class at five o’clock and it is pitch black outside really makes me long for spring. Plus, by like seven o’clock I am so ready for bed. I guess this only means one thing…the winter is coming! It was such a beautiful day so I could not let the day pass without going outside to take a few photos. Sadly, I had class until late afternoon so I rushed home to make sure I had time to snap some photos before the sun went down. The sun was just setting, hence the darker look and random orange spots on my head. I always like to look nice for class. Although, most people probably do not notice, I feel more confident and energized when I am “dressed up.” Don’t get me wrong, sweat pants are so comfortable but I do not think they are appropriate for class, no matter how many times you have pressed that snooze button. After classes is another story, that is…

Nothing is better than escaping college life by getting in the car, going off campus, and doing some shopping, even if it is by yourself. A few days ago I found out that retail therapy does exist. I was feeling a little down, and decided to pick myself up with something I love to do and that something is shopping. I was pretty bummed that nobody was around to go on a shopping trip with me, but what I found is that a little me time is just what I needed to overcome my blues. On another note, it has been such a warm fall in New England. I am so scared that by pointing this out, I’ll jinx the weather and tomorrow there will be a snow storm. But, I am enjoying this “Indian Summer” because I get to wear a typical fall outfit, jeans, sweater, and boots without shivering. Like I always say fall fashion is the best fashion. Today’s outfit features two new pieces from my latest shopping trip. I like to call the “sweater” I am wearing, a scarf with sleeves. Just imagine your favorite scarf with sleeves draped over your body. I found this unique…

Who needs a boyfriend when you have a pair of fabulous jeans? Sadly, there’s no man in my life; however, I am in a committed relationship with my new boyfriend jeans from Madewell. It wasn’t until recently, I jumped on the boyfriend jeans bandwagon. It seems like the skinny jean trend has died out. Now all the buzz is about slouchy, shapeless jeans. Every time I try on a pair of boyfriend jeans, I feel stupid and out of place; however that changed when I took a risk and bought a pair of boyfriend jeans. It has taken some time for me to get use to the fit because I have been so use to tight fitting jeans. Now that I am use to boyfriend jeans, I am obsessed with the loose, comfy fit. Best part about boyfriend jeans is they are so easy to style. One pair of boyfriend jeans can create several outfits. I have seen these jeans paired with blazers, t-shirts, wedges, boots, sneakers, stilettos, and so on. I love the look of my Madewell boyfriend jeans. I think the distressed design gives my jeans a laidback look. Hands down, Madewell has the best jeans and that…

Coloring your hair is all the rage now. Bright colored hair is not just for punk rockers or circus clowns; instead women of all ages are experimenting with new color dyes for their hair. The bright colored hair trend is especially popular among celebrities, like Kylie Jenner, Hilary Duff, Katy Perry, and Nicole Richie. Celebs are embracing beautiful shades of pink, blue, and purple. These beautiful hues are soft and fun and can make anyone look like a mythical unicorn or a mermaid. Who wouldn’t want to look like a mermaid, especially for the summer months? Color looks great with every skin tone and hair type. Anyone can pull off bright colored hair. The trend is all about being confident and not afraid to flaunt some color. After reading more about this trend, I noticed that blondes tend to rock more pink and lilac shades, where as brunettes favor blue and turquoise. If you’re ready to say yes to color, I recommend starting off modestly and dying a few strands of hair. The peekaboo streak of color is perfect for those who want to be trendy but have the option to hide the color for those days you aren’t feeling…
