Alleluia!  Finals are over!  Yesterday I handed in my last final and officially completed my first semester of junior year.  Like always, the semester flew.  I can’t believe I only have three more semesters until graduation.  Such a scary thought.  My fall semester was very fun until you come back from Thanksgiving break and you realize you have three seven page papers due and two finals to take the following week. Luckily, I did survive and manage to complete all my assignments on time but I could not have done it without coffee and my Out of Print clothing. Since I spent most of my mornings, afternoons, and nights studying and writing essays, I kept my outfits simple and comfortable.  I didn’t want to completely abandon my love of looking stylish, but I didn’t always have time to plan outfits, so I stuck with the basics, like leggings, a sweatshirt, a vest, and slip on sneakers. Starting from the bottom with my new favorite shoes.  My shoes summed up my mood during finals week.  I was so over the early mornings writing essays and long nights studying.  I love these unique and sassy shoes from Circus by Sam Edelman.  Even better,…

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…
