November Faves

I’m a few days late with this post, but I’m back with my November faves! Now that it’s officially freezing out, I’ve added in some of my faves for the colder months. Here are my recommendations and November favorites!

Beauty

Bondi Sands Tanning Foam Ultra DarkBondi Sands Tanning Foam Ultra Dark– I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ll mention it again. This is by far the best tanning product I have ever used! It is the perfect shade and streak free. It’s perfect for the winter when you need a little color!

Viva Naturals Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil– I haven’t experimented enough with coconut oil to know if one brand is better than another, but I do know this stuff is great. Coconut oil has a variety of different health benefits and can be used for many different purposes. Personally, I love using this once a week to deep condition my hair. My hair gets quite dry and brittle and this really livens it up!

PYT Ceramic Styling Tool– After going through countless amounts of straightening irons, I decided to invest in a good one. I’ve had this straightening iron for about 3 or 4 years now and it hasn’t let me down. It takes about 10 minutes with this iron to make my waves sleek and straight

Grace Antioxidant Organic Facial Toner– I wanted to bring my skin care routine up a notch and decided to buy this product because I heard an antioxidant toner is great for your skin. Although I haven’t noticed much of a difference in my skin, I do find the spray very refreshing and it also works as a nice setting spray! I have been having issues with dry skin and while it does not help much, it is temporarily relieving. Not to mention it’s organic and not to harsh on the skin, plus a reasonable price!

L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara– This mascara is a fave of mine and beats any high end mascara I’ve ever used. This mascara really lengthens  your lashes and overall is a must have considering its price.

Fashion

Hoodies– Hoodies are a staple when the weather begins to get colder. I’ve been obsessed with buying hoodies lately because they’re so comfortable and cute and come in so many styles and cuts. I linked one of my favorite new hoodies I bought recently from Lulu’s.

Jeans– Like hoodies, jeans are a staple. They help polish any outfit. Jeans with a cute sweater is a perfect look for when the weather is cold. It’s comfortable, but still cute. And just like hoodies, jeans come in various styles. Colored jeans, boyfriend jeans, ripped jeans, etc can all bring a complete different look. Jeans are so versatile and a closet staple. My favorite place to buy jeans is PacSun.

Workout leggings– As someone who goes from the gym, to class, cute workout leggings are a must. Victoria’s Secret and Nike have some of my favorite athletic leggings, but you can also find cute workout leggings for less at stores like Forever 21.

Riding boots– Riding boots are another step in my winter closet. I wear riding boots constantly. Invest in one black pair and nice brown pair and you’re set for all outfits! Charlotte Russe is a great place to buy shoes.

Booties– Booties are cute and look great with any outfit. I like to switch out my riding boots sometimes for my booties just because they add a different look.

Rings– I love accessorizing with funky rings. I think they just add a more stylish element to a simple outfit and overall just look super cute!

Entertainment

David Dobrik– I’ve been really into watching David Dobrik’s vlogs lately. They’re just so entertaining and honestly slightly addicting. They make me wish I had a friend group that exciting!

Animal’s People– I recently read the book Animal’s People for a class I take in school, and this was one of the few books I’ve ever read for a class that I actually enjoyed. It was a fun read and really eye-opening. I highly recommend it.

Shameless– I’ve been hooked on Shameless since I started watching my freshman year of high school. The new season has begun and I couldn’t be happier. Shameless is on Netflix now so if you haven’t watched it yet, there is no excuse.

Everyday Summer Outfits

Summer is almost over, but it’s not too late for some summer outfit inspiration! Here are two everyday looks that you can wear while the weather is still warm.

IMG_3071IMG_3106.jpg

Here I am wearing a very trendy cropped off the shoulder top from Urban Outfitters. I love the way this top looks, but unfortunately whenever I move my arms the sleeves shift up which is extremely frustrating, especially since the top is cropped as it just exposes my entire midriff. My shorts are from PacSun and are my favorite pair of high waisted shorts. I am also wearing metallic sandals from Forever 21 and layered gold necklaces also from Forever 21.

Taking pictures was so hard because it was so windy out that my hair was just all over the place. The weather has been terrible this summer, it never stops storming. I had originally wanted to make this a larger cookbook, but just couldn’t seem to find a nice photoshoot day.

Anyways, I’m obsessed with this jumpsuit for days like today that are a bit rainy and chilly. My jumpsuit is from Aeropostale and I am wearing the same sandal/necklace combo from my last outfit from Forever 21.

OOTD

Happy Saturday! (sorry I’m late for this blog post!!)

img_1219

OOTD’s are fun. They’re something I wish I could post more often, but none of my friends ever wanna take my pictures and I’m not too good with a tripod. Still, there are so many pretty places on campus I’d love to shoot. Maybe in time my tripod skills will improve and I won’t be so intimidated by passerby’s watching me have my own photoshoot, and I’ll stop taking pictures in front of this blue wall! (sorry for that lone sandal in the background, I’m a mess)

Anyways, this top I’m wearing is from Kohls and the skirt is from Rue 21. These boots are from DSW! The bracelet is from Helberg Diamonds.

I’m currently home for Thanksgiving which is nice! It’s good to be home, especially with all that’s been going on in my life. It’s great to be back with my mom. School has been very stressful. I have a lot on my plate this semester. I was recently elected House Manager for my sorority which is awesome! However, it’s also a huge commitment and a lot of responsibility, so hopefully I do a good job.

I’ve been working super hard hoping I could graduate a year early. I’ve been applying for tons of internships for the summer and have a few interviews scheduled, so wish me luck!

Currently on break, I am working at American Eagle (still) and this year I worked my first Black Friday! I have to say, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be. It was just such a long day and it sucks my entire day was spent folding clothes and all I’m going to get paid is like $70. I honestly can’t wait to get a job making real money in my field of choice! Hopefully school and all this hard work pays off!

How was everyone’s Thanksgiving?? Did you eat lots of food? I definitely did, and lots of pumpkin pie (aka my fave).

I hope you all had a great holiday and scored some awesome Black Friday deals! Thanks for reading! xoxo

Top 5 Rompers

A little while back I wrote a post about my Top 5 Cutest Skirts that I own. The pictures came out low quality.. but you got the gist and I mean they were cute skirts. So if you haven’t guessed from the title, this post will be just like that one, only with my top 5 favorite rompers in my closet. Rompers are my all time favorite summer piece. It’s so easy. Instead of planning an outfit you could literally just slip on one comfortable piece and you still look nice and put together. I honestly don’t think there’s any clothing I love more. Unfortunately, shopping for rompers is a bit difficult for me sometimes because I’m short so they often fit a bit awkward. The straps of the top will often be too long and the shorts will be too baggy. However, I’ve discovered stores that make great rompers for people of my size and I recommend them to you if you are also petite. So here are my top 5 favorite rompers in my closet, and the best places to buy them

5. Joyce Leslie Black and White Romper

If you haven’t noticed, Wet Seal is great place to buy rompers if you are petite. Rue 21 also is awesome. Although I only included one romper in this list, I own another romper from Rue 21 and both are great go-to outfits if I’m not sure what to wear. The rompers fit perfectly. My romper from Joyce Leslie is also super cute, but unfortunately Joyce Leslie has closed (sad face). PETITE GIRLS: Where do you buy your rompers??? Please let me know! I’m always looking for new places to buy rompers that will actually fit me!

By the way guys, I recently linked my blog to Bloglovin’ so now you can also keep up with me here!

Which trend is your favorite for the summer? Personally, I’m really loving off the shoulder tops and lace-up sandals. Comment your favorite below!

 

Summer Vibin’

Sometimes it’s hard being a blogger when you don’t have the best camera and aren’t the best with technology. I wish I had someone to teach me how to edit my theme and make it look all high-end like other bloggers, and I wish I had someone to take my pictures for me. But I don’t. But I’m still here. I’m simply just a college student who enjoys writing and fashion, so why should I care about someone else’s blog looking better than mine? I’ll learn in time how to make my blog more appealing. But for those of you who actually read my content, thank you. I sure do enjoy writing it.

What’s summer without a little sunburn? Sorry I straight up look like a lobster, but the outfit is nice, isn’t it? High-waisted shorts have become a summer staple because they allow me to bare some skin without it being too much.

I love all things floral. This top is especially cool because it zips up the front and has a corset- type feel. The pretty blue backdrop of the crop top is perfect against all skin tones and the floral adds a nice girly touch perfect for the season. This cropped top paired with high-waisted shorts is the perfect combination.

Although summer is in the air, it’s still a little chilly where I’m at. I decided to add this white knit sweater on top. It’s large and oversized with quarter sleeves so it’s shaped kind of like a kimono which is a HUGE summer trend. But the knit material is nice and thick so it still keeps me warm.

IMG_3763Kickin’ off this summer-y outfit with a classic pair of sandals. This is my go-to pair because I think the leaf design looks so cool.
