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!

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 — 01/15/13

As a requirement for some of the classes I will be taking next semester, I have to document quite a few observation hours. So, a few days ago, I visited my old high school and shadowed a few of my old high school science teachers. In the future, I plan to become a high school science teacher, myself. Take a look at this ‘OOTD’…it features what I wore on that day of observation!

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!

Favorite Flannels

There are three things that I absolutely love about flannel shirts. First of all, they are made of soft fabrics that keep you very warm. This makes flannel shirts the perfect staple to have on hand in your closet for the colder months of the fall and winter seasons. Secondly, flannel shirts come in a variety of styles; they can be found in almost every color, and the shirt may sport either a checkered, plaid, or even a gingham pattern, depending on the number of colors used in the design.  Thirdly, flannel tops are very versatile. Pair a flannel with some leggings to lounge around in, or layer one under a pull over sweater for a stylish look.

This trendy top will come in handy for the cold months ahead! Have you stocked up on any flannel shirts yet? Check out some of my favorite flannel finds below–

 

 

1. Republic $24

2. Intermix $128

3. Republic $24

4. Aubin and Wills $94

5. Woolrich $59

In the past, I’ve also found some cute flannel shirts at stores such as Target and American Eagle Outfitters.

OOTD: Sister edition!

It’s a chilly, sort-of gloomy day here at the beach, so my sister and I have resorted to wearing long sleeves instead of bathing suits. It’s a tough compromise, but as my boyfriend wisely pointed out to me this morning, a day on vacation–even a yucky one–is better than a day at work. Amen to that!

 

What I’m wearing:

    • Top: Old Navy. I fiiiinally got a chambray shirt after lusting after them for a year or two. Yeah, I’m late to the party, but I’m glad I finally got there!
    • Shorts: Lands’ End Canvas. LOVE THESE! They’re always look brighter than I think they really are, but they definitely punch up an outfit!
    • Accessories: green beaded necklace (I’ve had it since eighth grade!), Michael Kors watch, sailor’s rope bracelet from Kennebunkport, J.Crew madras headband, and tortoise shell sunglasses from Marshalls, signet and claddagh rings.

On my sister:

    • Bicycle t-shirt: J.Crew
    • Sweater: Lands’ End
    • Jeans: Hollister
    • Metallic boat shoes: Sperry Topsider
    • Accessories: Ann Taylor belt, Swarovski ring, necklace from Copper Mt., Colorado.

I hope that the weather’s better wherever you are!

Christmas Eve Outfit of the Day!

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope that your holidays are filled with warmth, happiness, family, and good tidings!

I wanted to share my Christmas Eve outfit with all of you, so here it is!

And with my leopard coat!

1. Black dress: Ann Taylor.  My mom has the dress in red, and I’ve got it in black.  It’s a great sheath cut, and I love the cute three-quarter sleeves.  There’s also a fun zipper detail at the wrists!

2. Leopard print coat: Forever 21. I got this on a whim yesterday.  The coat isn’t something I’d normally wear, but I think it’s really fun and unexpected for dress-up situations (and I have LOTS of dress-up situations!).

3. Accessories: Earrings, Anthropologie. Watch: Michael Kors. Giraffe necklace and tortoiseshell headband: J.Crew. Shoes: M.P.S.

Once again, I hope you have happy holidays and the merriest of Christmases! 🙂

xoxo, Karoline

Outfit of the Day, 11/20/11

I loved Laurie Beth’s outfit yesterday, and thought I’d post my own! It’s unseasonably warm today in MA (63˚ at my school!), so I’m in a skirt for probably the last time this year.  Loving that I get one last day of warmish weather before the holidays!

1. Land’s End Canvas boat-neck striped shirt.  My mom gave me this shirt for Christmas last year, and I love it!  It’s a lot thicker and stiffer than normal shirts, and I think that’s why I like t so much.  It’s definitely quality that’s going to last me a long time.

2. GAP red corduroy mini. This skirt is oooold! I think I got it when I was a freshman in high school…I’m now a junior in college.  I’ve got lots of clothes like that, though.  I’ve still got some of the things I was wearing in 8th grade! I really like this skirt because I’m a huge fan of corduroy…corduroy shirts, skirts, pants, jackets…you name it, I’ve got it.

3. Minnetonka Kilty Moc in brown suede. I have been on the hunt for the perfect moccasin since I was in high school.  I got these early this fall, and I’m obsessed! They’re beyond comfortable, go with everything, and are super cute. They’re a great fall/winter replacement to my ever-present Sperry’s.

Misc: Michael Kors tortoise shell watch, pearl earrings and iPhone. Bracelets: Pandora, red evil eyes, and monogram bracelet. Rings: claddagh ring and signet ring.
