Fishermen Sweater and Turtle Necks

Saturday, February 21, 2015

Happy Saturday! Yay its finally the weekend! It has been very cold here and I am excited to hole up in my cosy apartment for a couple of days instead of waling across campus. I know I should expect the cold, it being winter and all. But I live in the South and I am not mentally or physically prepared for single digit temperatures. To deal with it this week, I piled on as many different layers as humanly possible without becoming the Michelin man and it kind of worked! Hopefully it will be a little warmer this week! Have a wonderful weekend XO
Glasses: The View on Elm, Turtleneck: I have this turtleneck in black and burgundy and I absolutely love it, Sweater: My dad got this sweater for my mom in Ireland so it is a little big, but an amazing staple. Similar here and here, Purse: similar here, Jeans: JBrand jeans, Socks: J.Crew, Boots: Vera Wang, Jewelry: earrings, bracelets from here, here, here, here, and here

Winter Wonderland

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Hello fabulous readers! Our promised winter and snow has finally arrived and with it my fashion mojo. I always go through lulls in my style where its just too cold or I'm not motivated to doing anything other than throwing on a boyfriend sweater and boots. However, my mojo is back! The style juices are flowing, I'm all over pinterest, and I've started writing fashion articles again! What do you do if you get into a fashion lull? Any ideas for how to get out of it next time? I hope y'all are enjoying your wintry weather and everyone is safe! XO

Coat: I had been lusting over this coat from J.Crew and I finally got it for Christmas! I love J.Crew's coats because they are good quality, will last forever, and they are so timelessly chic. I've been wearing this one everyday and completely neglecting all of my other winter weather gear! Glasses: As you probably already know, I work at a glass boutique whenever I am home from school and I am obsessed with glasses. My boss actually designed these frames for me and I'm in love. They are so subtle and girly, but they still spice up all of my outfits. Scarf: This scarf makes me think old-world glamour. I put it on and immediately feel like a movie star and it adds that extra edge to any outfit. Anthropologie no longer has it online, but here are two similar options... here and here, Sweater: I love this color block sweater because its still "trendy" but also a great staple piece, Button-down: A great button-down because I can wear it under sweaters in the winter, but with a skirt or shorts in the summer. Thank you J.Crew! Jeans: My absolute favorite pair of jeans from JBrand. I actually have two pairs of these so I can alternate days, but they are the perfect pants because they are high-waisted and dark wash which makes them look good with any outfit, Boots: My absolute favorite boots! They are already starting to wear out after my London adventures and wearing them everyday. But they are so comfortable and cute I can't stop wearing them, Socks: My feet are always cold so I buy a lot of heavy duty socks. I like these ones from J.Crew because they are a little cuter than hiking socks, but just as warm, Bag: I adore this bag! It's so snarky and fun! It's fun Kate Spade, but they no longer have the style. However, check out their other bags especially the ones on sale for some fun statement pieces. I especially love this one, Jewelry: I love the Lily and Laura bracelets because they add a little pop of color to my otherwise neutral bracelets. Gorjana is a great option for simple metal jewelry that normally has a fun twist. I love my Carpe Diem bracelet! Most of my jewelry is older and things I have accumulated over the years. However, I found similar things to all of them on BaubleBar who is also having a bracelet sale right now!! Anyways, here is what I have...pearl cuff, gold cuff, studded bracelet, chain, and bangle. This Kate Spade watch is more like a bracelet than a watch! I am actually wearing two necklaces, but here are two option that look like my combination in one piece! Here and here

High Tea for a Friendaversary

Friday, February 6, 2015

My tea outfit! 
My best friend McKenzie and I became friends while rooming together in London. So to celebrate a year of friendship, we decided to have high tea and pretend we were back in England. Despite being in North Carolina, I have to say that our tea was very good. The scones were delicious and we had lots of fun finger food. New life goal though- learn how to make delicious scones so I can eat them every day :) Have a fabulous Friday! XO

Dress, Jacket, Bag, Necklace, Tights, Shoes
Only Earl Grey for me! 

All of our yummy snacks

So like everyone else, I hate commercials, but you almost have to watch them during the Super Bowl and when I saw this one, I was so excited. I've seen this video before, but every time I see it, it is more powerful. I am always proud to be a girl, but watching this video makes me want to go out and change the world because I'm a girl AND I'm awesome. It brings to light all of the negative connotations our society has with being "like a girl" but also shows that these connotations are not something we are born with. We learn them. Which means we can unlearn them and also not teach them to our children. I am not trying to rant or anything. But guys, this is really important. Please watch this video and I would LOVE to hear what y'all have to say. XO
