These Boots are Made for Walkin’

Hey everyone!!

Coming to you guys this week with a simple, delicate look. I just received these mules from Lulus last week, so i decided that I would talk about them on the upcoming post! Not only do they provide me with a few inches of height, but they’re also comfortable (all things considered) and super easy to pair. They tie in the cream color in my sweater, permitting the overalls to stand out against the neutral colors. I have been all about this burgundy/ maroon/ wine color, especially for the fall time ( don’t have to look far back considering my scalloped skirt from last week). Midterm season is officially over, so I’ve been able to focus my attention on other endeavors this past week! I’m finally taking some time to hone in on my skills, and look into what I’m looking for in a future job/ career path. Although some could argue I’m way too early in the game, this research process has opened my eyes to the endless number of possibilities in the fashion industry.  From designers and photographers to the social media team behind a company’s online presence, there truly is a position catered to every individual’s interests and needs. I love the idea of getting to explore various routes hopefully sometime soon, and upon graduation.

Confession: I haven’t worn overalls since my days as a 90s kid clad in a denim, Mickey Mouse pair. However, ‘ll probably be called out as an outfit repeater with this pair. Not only are they easy to thrown on, but they make a sweater-boot combo infinitely cuter. I don’t plan on putting these booties away anytime soon, so look forward to more posts on how I style these bad boys!

This is What (Velvet) Dreams are Made Of

Hey everyone!

Coming to you guys this week with a post all about my new favorite fall trend–velvet. Designers have been especially apt to use the fabric, as it seems to be the talk of the runway. Whether imagined through a bright colored jumpsuit or a blazer-trouser ensemble, velvet conveys elegance in a modern way. I wear dresses over skirts any day of the week, but I’m starting to notice how versatile a well fitted skirt is. This button front skirt with scalloped detailing adds femininity to any outfit, and I can easily transition it into the colder months ahead. Although I can still get away with the luxury of wearing shorts and rompers for a few more weeks, being able to wear a chunky sweater and drink hot chocolate ( without any judgment) is something that I can’t help but look forward to. Prepping fashion wise for me is the most fun, but the holiday spirit is what I count down to the most. My favorite coffee shop becomes more cozy, and replicating that “homey” feeling is nearly impossible.  It is a place where I can collect my thoughts and unwind after a long day of classes/work/ anything else on the average college student’s mind. I encourage you all to find that comfortable place, separate from your physical home, but one that still evokes that same sense of familiarity.  The future is promising– I’ve made it through another set of midterms, I may have nearly finished my entire pint of coconut milk ice cream, and an online order from Lulus is making its way over. Online shopping has become a bit of a problem for me, especially because I use it under the pretense of “stress” from exams.

Drop a line below letting me know in the comments how your week has been going, and what you are looking most forward to!
