Remember when the ground wasn’t covered with snow and you could walk outside unafraid of stepping into a gross puddle filled with dirty water from the melting snow?  Or remember when it was like 60 degrees one day and then the next day we got dumped on with over a foot of snow?  It’s been a crazy winter to say the least.  Well luckily the photos below were taken on that 60-degree day because no blogger would miss the chance of shooting outside on a warm winter day.  Keep scrolling to read all about one of my favorite outfits that has been on repeat because it features a few of my favorite things: floral, fringe, and sparkle.          Whenever the cold weather hits, I am the type of person that will fold away all of my favorite dresses and wait until the warm weather returns to wear them all again.  But, now I realize that dresses can certainly be worn in the winter, especially when you layer, layer, layer.  I love my button down, floral dress from Zara.  For the winter, I love dark floral prints, because it totally makes a delicate, girly print a bit more edgy.          My…

You know you are experiencing a mid-week slump when it took you an hour to come up with the title of this post.  Anyway, today’s style post features some of my favorite new pieces that I picked up from Zara a while back when they were having a massive sale.  I took advantage of Zara’s sale and stocked up on new denim and tops for all occasions, so of course you can expect more style posts featuring my favorite retailer, Zara. Today’s style vibe is casual and laid back.  I took a somewhat fancy, silky black blouse with a floral embroidered detail from Zara and dressed it down by pairing it with slouchy, boyfriend jeans.  My Zara top also features a ruffle detail at the neck, which as you can tell by the photos was not cooperating with the windy weather, but hey it still looks chic. Mixing textures and fabrics, like denim and silk can be interesting, so to give my blouse more shape, I decided to do my oh so famous half tuck trick and tuck a portion of my top into my distressed, boyfriend jeans from Zara.  It is safe to say I am in a committed…

Who else is totally gushing over the star print trend this year? I mean how beautiful was Emma Stone’s Valentino blush colored dress she wore at the Golden Globes a couple of weeks ago.  I loved how the dress included a sparkly star pattern.  She really looked like a star (no pun intended).  Emma Stone as well as other celebrities and bloggers have really inspired me to add more of the star print to my collection.  Keep on reading to see how I style one of my new favorite pieces that follows that star trend and will have you shining like a star (too cheesy?). All eyes are on my long black tunic with the beautiful metallic star print from online shop, Zaful.  I love heading over to Zaful because you will always find the best prices on the most stylish and trendiest pieces.  Every time I wear my Zaful tunic, everyone is always confused whether it is a top or a dress.  It is long enough to be a dress, but since the sides of the shirt features extremely high slits, I like to style it more like a shirt by wearing my favorite leggings or opaque tights.         …

The post holiday depression has officially set in.  Walking through Bryant Park in NYC each day, I see what use to be the holiday shopping village now vacant.  I watch stores take down their holiday window decorations, but I refuse to put away my glitz and glam from the holiday season.  Keep on reading to see how to incorporate sparkle in your everyday look even when the holidays are over. My favorite way to keep the glam in the dreary winter months is to add sparkle in subtle ways, which is why I love my plaid button up with the pops of gold sparkle from GlitterBuzzStyle Boutique.  The sparkle on the pocket and the back turns this shirt from ordinary to extraordinary.  Check out http://www.glitterbuzzstyleboutique.com for more fashionable finds. Since I mentioned how cold the winter can get I just layered a thin white sweater from Old Navy under my blouse.  I always look for ways to add more warmth to any of my outfits because I am miserable when I’m cold. As for jeans I’m wearing my new super flared jeans from Madewell.  This is not just your typical skinny jean, but the flared detail totally steps up your…

It’s the final stretch!  Two final papers handed in and just three final exams to take and my first semester of senior year is OVER!  What the heck?  Where did time go?  It feels like yesterday I was the timid freshman on campus and now I am a big shot senior.  Putting all that aside, I decided to put down my philosophy notes for a bit and write a new post for you all.          So for today’s post I am switching things up a little bit and first going to talk about my infamous Charming Charlie Good Vibes necklace that has made many appearances on my blog.  In fact, this is one of my favorite necklaces so I had to dedicate the title of this blog post to the influential message behind the necklace.  The saying “Good Vibes” has been my motto for this past week, especially when I have been bombarded with exams and assignments, but it also has become my motto throughout this semester and continuing onto the next.  I am a big believer that your attitude determines your experiences, so I am making sure I spread those good vibes throughout my last year of college to…
