Sweatshirts- for more than just your lazy Sunday

Monday, October 26, 2015

I have never been one to wear sweatpants or sweatshirts regularly. I like my jeans and I feel naked without jewelry on. But this sweatshirt/sweater from J.Crew is the perfect compromise for me. While being warm and comfortable like a sweatshirt, it is also a little cropped with bright blue stitching. I'm obsessed to say the least and very excited to be able to wear a sweatshirt without changing my style! XO

Black Peplum and Sparkles

Sunday, October 25, 2015

We are having the weirdest fall weather here in North Carolina, which is pretty typical of North Carolina weather in general. The problem right now though is what to wear when you leave the house at 8 a.m. and don't come home until 4 p.m. At 8 in the morning, it has been in the 40s and 50s so I am piling on sweaters and scarves and relishing in the opportunity to start wearing boots. But by 3 o'clock it is 75, sunny, and perfect and I am shedding layers by the second as I am sweating across campus. For me, the perfect outfit involves a lot of layers and not necessarily warm layers. With this outfit, my shirt is comfortable, cute, and as an added perk doesn't show sweat stains. The scarf is light, so comfortable in the afternoon heat, but a nice layer around my neck in the morning. For the morning, I threw on a light jacket that was easy to take off and carry around. One day, I will fully master the art of fall dressing and I am getting close, but it might take me a few more crazy days. I sure am enjoying the fall leaves this year though! How do you deal with fall weather? XO

Polka Dots for Days

Friday, October 23, 2015

I have always been a fan of polka dots and when I saw this jumpsuit at Anthropologie, I fell in love. The pockets and the bow belt were just an added bonus that sealed the deal. The thing I love about Anthropologie is that they have a very distinct look, but they also have these incredible statement pieces that are outside of this look. My mom and I were talking yesterday about how if you wear all Anthropologie, all the time, you develop this distinct, boho look. But even when I wear all Anthro, like this outfit, I think it's important to reflect your own style. So don't let anyone convince you to buy something and always search for those incredible statement pieces that help define your style. XO 

Road Trip Adventures

Saturday, October 17, 2015

We finally have a day off and are taking full advantage of the long weekend by taking a baby road trip to Atlanta. Of course, we had to stop yesterday in Greenville to see my lovely sister, but today is all Atlanta. The best part of this trip is that it is starting to feel like fall and I can finally pull out all of my fun layers! This hat is definitely my favorite piece so far, but I have this great sweater vest I'm also excited to wear. Fall is by far my favorite season because of the clothes. 60 degrees is my perfect wheel house for outfits. Plus Thanksgiving is around the corner and I can't wait! XO 

Floppy Hats and Turtlenecks

Monday, October 12, 2015

I have always adored hats- baseball, fedora, bowler- you name it, but I have never been able to find the perfect hat for me. However, J.Crew solved all of my problems with this incredible, felt floppy hat. It's perfect for transitioning into fall and winter and I can't wait to wear it...I've already worn it three times! So if you are looking for a hat this fall ( and they are definitely in) maybe this one will work for you too! Oh and did I mention it's on sale? XO

Army Green and Gold

Friday, October 9, 2015

One of my biggest problems in the summer and fall is that I am always cold. Outside,  I am fine in shorts and a t-shirt, but as soon as I go inside, I'm freezing. I have figured out the key to dealing with this is not only layering, but also adapting your outfit from day to night. Most people when they think day to night think about adding heels and lipstick. For me, this means adding jeans instead of shorts and potentially a cardigan. XO

Last Days of Summer

Thursday, October 8, 2015

Summer is starting to come to a close and don't get me wrong, I love fall. But I'm trying to squeeze in a few more days of summer clothes before the vests come out. I bought this skirt at the beginning of the summer on a whim and it has been my go to piece! First of all it's pink, which makes it fabulous. Plus it's very comfortable and bonus, has pockets! The perfect skirt if you ask me. So enjoy those summer clothes for a few more days before my favorite season begins! XO

Winter Pink

Saturday, October 3, 2015

Pastels, specifically pale pink are some of my favorite colors to wear all year long. The key for me in fall and winter is to wear them with darker colors, so I'm not washed out or too springy. Take this shirt for example- the perfect transitional piece because it is a thicker material, but still short sleeves. This shirt is also one of those pieces that is universally liked. The first time I wore it, my Italian teacher told me I looked like I had just walked out of a Chanel ad (might be the best compliment I've ever received). It is perfect for wearing with pink because it is feminine, but not too girly so you look feminine, but you aren't trying to hard. XO
Fun Fact: My two best friends are huge One Direction fans so I have become one as well. Their new song, Drag Me Down, recently came out and was not my favorite, but the music video is awesome and makes me like the song more every time.
