Fourth of July OOTD!

Hey everyone,

One of my favorite holidays is coming up–the Fourth of July! I have always loved checking out fireworks and attending cook outs with friends and family to celebrate America’s birthday. This year I was very upset to find out that I’ll be spending the day time this Thursday, stuck inside, working… BUT! I won’t let that stop me from getting festive! Check out this red, white, and blue outfit I plan on wearing to work!

Enjoying Spring

springtime

 

After what seems like an endless winter, spring finally seems to be in the air. The surest sign for me? I don’t have to wear a jacket anymore! I am beyond happy to start breaking out the shorts and sandals. The flowers are starting to come up and yesterday (much to my delight) was the first day I was able to sit out on the quad with my homework. Getting some sun felt SO good.

Yesterday, my boyfriend reluctantly agreed to be featured in an outfit of the day post. He just looked so casually springy that I had to share. So, here’s what we were wearing:

On Matt: shirt, Lands’ End Canvas; shorts, American Eagle; boat shoes, Dockers.

On me: sunglasses, Maui Jim; shirt, J.Crew Factory; shorts, Old Navy; boat shoes, Sperry.

How have you been enjoying the weather?

Popovers!

Like Christine mentioned yesterday, it’s still snowy and cold in lots of different places. However, today is the first day of spring! That means that sunny days, flowers, and warmer weather are right around the corner!

One thing I am loving this spring is J.Crew Factory’s popover shirts in Oxford and chambray. They are perfect for nearly any occasion. Throw one on with jeans, shorts, or a skirt and you’re instantly polished but still so comfy. You can even use it as a coverup for days at the beach! (I wish I was there now…)

However you choose to style yours, have fun with it 🙂

What are you loving this spring?

Business Casual

Since last Thursday, I have attended a Leadership Conference in Washington D.C., dressed up for a Phi Sigma Sigma sorority chapter meeting, had a job interview, and tomorrow I’ll be spending my day at Jury Duty! Needless to say, over the last six days, ‘business casual’ outfits are all I’ve been wearing. I love getting dressed up, and all of these excuses to do so have allowed me to get a lot of use out of all my skirts, khakis, dresses, and dress pants, and create some cute, professional outfits! Need help getting your ‘business casual’ look together? Check out my favorite combinations below!

OOTD — 02/26/13

So khaki pants and sweaters are pretty much what I reach for when I get up to get ready these (wintery) mornings. I love how sweaters look layered on top of a button down or polo shirt. Not only do I love this outfit, but ‘Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ’ by O.P.I. (pictured to the left), is probably my absolute nail color of all time. I just had to show it off in this O.O.T.D.!

Three Valentine’s Outfits!

Like I said last week, Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday to decorate for. But, the decorations don’t stop with your home and your phone, you can also dress for the occasion! I’m a sucker for all things pink and/or red, so these are some of my favorite looks of the year. I put together looks for three separate occasions you might have going on!

outfit three

Class time: Sweater, tank top, jeans, tote, shoes.

outfit two

Date night: Earrings, blazer, tee shirt, skirt, bracelet, shoes.

outfit one

Dinner with friends: Necklace, top, kakis, sneakers.

OOTD – 12/28/12

Hey guys!  I hope y’all had a fabulous holiday!  Lucky for me, I’ve still got a little bit more celebrating to do!  On Christmas Eve, my dad’s parents and one of his sisters comes to our house to exchange gifts.  Then on Christmas Day, my mom’s side of the family comes for brunch and to exchange gifts.  Tonight, all of my dad’s siblings and my two cousins will head to my dad’s parents house for dinner to finish the celebrating!  Needless to say, I’m going to need a vacation from my vacation!  Just kidding, but I am getting pretty tired!

One more Christmas Dinner means one more outfit to plan!  After Friday night, you’ll most likely find me in leggings and a fleece until I head back to school… #lazygirl

Anyways, here’s what I’m planning on wearing tomorrow to dinner…let’s just pray there’s no snow and the temperatures don’t drop too much!

Bracelets!

It’s a little strange, but the inspiration for today’s post actually comes from my brother, Walter. Yesterday morning, he was giving my sister her Christmas present and was telling her why he got her a bangle from J.Crew. He said something along the lines of, “I was talking to the saleslady, and she told me it was enamel, and apparently that’s really….’in’ right now”. It was hilarious. “In” became the line of the day.

However, I was inspired to put together some fun bangles and bracelets to spice up your wardrobe. Whether you call them stacks or arm parties, they’re always fun.

Look cute–even while you sleep!

When I choose my outfit for the day, I am all about looking and feeling fashionable and put together….but who is to say that you can’t look cute 24/7?! That’s right, I am talking about pajamas! What you sleep in doesn’t have to be boring…there are so many different styles of pajamas and a lot of them come in fun, stylish patterns! Stay cozy in a few of my favorite finds this holiday season—

The Classic Pajama Set:

1. This pajama set is from Victoria’s Secret, it comes with a button down, long-sleeved top, and matching pants. This is the newest addition to my personal pajama collection, but if you are not a fan of the little white tigers, this set comes in 26 patterns to choose from! (Victoria’s Secret ‘Red Tolle’ — $50)

2. If you prefer to lounge in something light and sleek, try out this pajama set from Victoria’s Secret. The short-sleeved top and boxer-style shorts are made of silk and come in 4 different patterns. (Victoria’s Secret ‘Silk Boxer PJ’ — $98)

3.This pajama set from J.Crew is not only cute but it looks really comfortable too! The set includes pajama pants and a matching button down top. Plus, who doesn’t love JCrew’s Gingham pattern?! (J.Crew ‘Flannel Gingham –$85)

The Two-Piece Thermal:

1. & 2. With the colder winter weather moving in, maybe you are thinking of investing in some PJs that are sure to keep you nice and warm. I love both the stripes on the thermal set on the left and the solid simplicity of the thermal set on the right!

1. Nordstrom offers this comfy thermal set in 6 different patterns! (Nordstrom ‘Hue-Huetopia’ — $48)

2. The Gap‘s thermal set features a cute button detail on the top—love it! (Gap ‘Ribbed PJ Set’ — $50 )

Pajama Bottoms:

1. & 2. Who says you have to get a whole matching pajama set? Pajama bottoms are known for coming in a slew of styles, and materials. Choose a pair with your favorite cartoon or a fun pattern on it to show case your character! Pair them with a comfy tee-shirt or tank top and you’re ready to hit the bed!

1. I love the Gap’s pajama bottoms because they are light and comfy—perfect for sleeping in. Isn’t the plaid on this pair so cute?! (Gap ‘Poplin’– $35)

2. Here is another cute pajama bottom pattern I found from P.B. Teen. You can’t go wrong with polka dots! (P.B. Teen ‘Dottie’ -$39)

Yes, Even Dresses:

1. & 2. Some people prefer dresses as opposed to shorts or pants when they sleep! If you fall under that category, check out some of my favorite finds–

1. This Macys’  dress’ simplicity is what makes it so appealing. Looks like something great to lounge around in. (Macy’s ‘Jockey Sleep Shirt’ — $34)

2. I love the lace detail and the overall flow of this nightgown—very pretty. (Alexander Del Rossa ‘Pricilla – $30)

Sleepy Time Accessories:

1. Fuzzy Socks- Soft and warm microfiber socks can be found at a variety of stores or online! (Kaboodle — $2-$10)

2.Aromatherapy- Not technically an accessory you can wear…more like a handy size kick. I LOVE this calming hand lotion from Bath and Body Works–works so well and smells so nice! (Bath and Body Works ‘Sleep-Lavender Vanilla’ — $13)

3. Eye Mask- Keep annoying lights away by using an eye mask! This one, a  replica of the one Audrey Hepburn uses in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ is super cute! (Mary Green ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s Sleep Mask’ — $32)

4. Robe- Robes are comfortable and are always good to have on hand! (Target –$25)
