Belted Scarf

10.29.2014

Scarf: H&M (old, similar here) // Tee: Target // Jeans: Urban Outfitters // Heels: Calvin Klein (similar) // Earrings: BaubleBar

I've really been loving the poncho look, but I haven't been able to find any that I really like. So, I took matters into my own hands and created a poncho-like contraption out my scarf. As much as I hate the cold, I love all the accessories that come along with it!

Thanks for stopping by! xo


Fall Blues

Sweater: Nasty Gal (on sale!) // Jeans: Urban Oufitters // Shoes: Aldo (similar) // Earrings: Target (similar


 Just because it's Fall doesn't mean you have to put your pastels away! I love love love pastels in the fall. Even though all the flowers have died and the leaves have turned brown and fallen down, pastels still have a place in autumn.

Casual in Camel

10.23.2014


Coat: H&M // Jeans: Gap // Shoes: Converse // Sweater: Forever 21 (sold out)

Another gloomy day in Blacksburg. I don't know about you guys, but my mood is strongly affected by the weather. When it's gloomy, I feel lethargic and unenthusiastic. I have some different ways of combating this phenomenon. When I feel down, or I'm bored, I will put on a full face of make up or dress up and go to the library or Starbucks to read. Getting out of the house makes me feel much better. Today, I just threw on a coat of bright red cherry lipstick to boost my spirits. Works every time!

Camel Coat

10.20.2014


Coat: H&M // Skirt: H&M (non-assymetric version here) // Top: Target // Boots: Ivanka Trump

I'm sure you are all aware of the trend that is the oversized coat. Mix that trend with a little camel and you have what I call a perfect piece to add to your wardrobe. The best part? This jacket is only 100 bucks. So chic and so affordable. I can't wait to style this timeless piece and create lots of different looks. 

I hope you enjoyed today's post!

Double-Sided Pearl Earrings

10.16.2014


So I noticed this trend over the summer and at first I didn't know how I felt about it. But then I saw how versatile it made pearls and I was sold. My birthstone is the pearl, but I've never really been into the preppy look that pearls usually go along with. I love the way this trend has sort of brought new life to pearls for me. Multiple celebs have rocked this trend on and off the red carpet:

Dreaming of Paris

10.14.2014




Top: Target // Shorts: TJ Maxx (pretty skirt option here) // Mules: Aldo (similar)

I have been so busy studying for the LSAT and my classes that I have have no time to keep up with blogging. I've really missed it! Now that it's fall I can't wait to post some of my fall looks, like this one! Fall can be tricky because some days its warmer - like it was today - and then it gets cool. For that reason, I paired these awesome leather shorts I got from TJ Maxx (major steal of a price, too) with a simple long-sleeved top and some black mules.

I've been carrying around this book How to be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits by Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret, and Sophie Mas. I go to college in a tiny, mountain town. this setting does not jive with my fashion aspirations. I spend a lot of time dreaming of Paris and wishing I could pack my bags and move there. I've always said that I want to live in a city where wearing heels to the market is normal haha! I highly recommend this book - it's very cute and witty - and you can get it at your local Barnes and Noble or here!

Over The Knee

10.13.2014




Sweater: Target // Boots: Ivanka Trump

I don't think I've ever talked about my calves on my blog before. Let me just tell you, I have big calves. It is nearly impossible for me to find a pair of boots that fit around them that aren't extended calf sized. So, when I began the search for black suede OTK boots, I knew it would be hard. What I didn't know was that it would take TWO YEARS for me to find a pair that is both within my price range and big calf-friendly. These Ivanka Trump boots are amazing. I want to wear them all day every day and never ever ever take them off. It took me years to find them and I'm just so ecstatic about it!
