#OOTD - Boho Chic

December 9, 2014

It's currently exam week, and still cold as ever! I currently got this amazing sweater from Garage, and I absolutely adore it. It's so cozy, yet has that boho chic look I love. I have a feeling I'm going to be wearing this thing every. Single. Darn. Day. And I find it's perfect for writing exams in...why? Because it's basically like wearing a blanket, and if I have to sit and write a three-hour exam, I might as well be comfy right?

3 Ways to Style Sweatpants

December 7, 2014

I don't know about you, but I find it very difficult to style sweatpants so that I don't look like I just crawled out of bed. A girl should be able to be both comfy and cute, right? I figured I can't be the only one with this problem, so I decided to share a few ways you can jazz up those sweats! (BTW, this is perfect if you are entering exam week like myself...sweatpants are your best friend during this time, am I right?)

#OOTD - Casual & Classy

December 1, 2014

As you have probably been able to tell from all my #OOTD's...I have a slight obsession with dresses. I made the decision a while ago that I wanted to start dressing a bit more fancy and "girly", as it simply makes me happy and is what I am most comfortable in (hence the reason I wear a lot of dresses). I didn't used to put that much effort into how I looked (as long as I looked somewhat nice, I was happy), but I realized that I only get one life, and if I like to get dressed up...why don't I do it more often? So it may take me an extra ten minutes to get ready in the morning, but I can honestly say it's one of the best decisions I've made. I feel more confident, relaxed, and like I'm ready for any situation that may arise (i.e. potential business networking opportunities, photographs, surprise visits/invitations, etc.). What I'm trying to say is that it's important to dress in what makes you happy, whether that's getting all dolled-up or wearing sweatpants. I know how you dress is one of the less-important aspects of life, but it still plays its part and can affect how you feel about yourself, as well as how you want others to perceive you. So is short, so start living how you want to live (and dressing how you want to dress)! :)

1 Shirt, 3 Outfits - Winter Addition

November 23, 2014

If you love fashion but are on a tight budget (like myself), you can sometimes have that feeling of "Ahhh I have nothing to wear! I always seem to wear the same things over and over again...". But thankfully, being fashionable and coming up with new outfits doesn't always have to break your bank account! Sometimes, it's just about finding a core piece of clothing and building new outfits around it.

So I introduce to you can create 3 fashionable and cute outfits based around 1 shirt (and how dressing nice doesn't always mean wearing expensive clothes).


1 Shirt, 3 Outfits

I decided to go for a basic grey t-shirt, as it is simple to dress it up or down depending on what you feel like. This one is from Target, and I'm pretty sure it was under $10.


Outfit #1 - Comfy & Casual

T-Shirt: Target // Plaid Button Down: Wal-Mart // Socks: Wal-Mart // Jeans: Warehouse One


Outfit #2 - Cute & Cozy

T-Shirt: Target // Headband: Ardenes // Pants: Costco (Calvin Klein)


Outfit #3 - Classy

T-Shirt: Target // Skirt: Wal-Mart // Scarf: Christmas gift // Stockings: Can't remember...:P


If you would like to see more of this type of post, please let me know and share your ideas! I hope this will help you to make the most of your wardrobe, be inspired, and feel satisfied with the clothes that you do have. :)
