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.

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- Summer Concert!

Recently, I was able to attend Radio 104.5’s Birthday Show and it was awesome! I wrote about Day 2 last week here, and I have to say, I really had a great time. The weather was beautiful- hot and sunny during the day, and cool and breezy at night.

I wore a simple outfit of just a black bralette bought at Forever 21 and black high waisted shorts that are the brand Mystic. I didn’t want to accessorize too much in fear of losing something, but I did wear a simple, silver ring. Also (not pictured) I wore some knock off all black vans because I knew I would be in grass all day and I didn’t want to get any of my nice shoes muddy.

I actually did my makeup for the first time all summer, which I picked a very awful day to do this since I melted within the first hour. Still, I thought the orange and pink eyeshadows looked perfect for summer and the winged eyeliner really pulled together the look.

Overall, the look wasn’t anything crazy, but comfortable and cute for a day spent in the sun listening to all my favorite bands.

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

Thanksgiving Lookbook

I don’t know about you, but I’m especially excited for the holiday season this year. The holidays mean food, friends, and family.. and an excuse to dress up in your cutest outfits!

But what happens when Thanksgiving is only a few days away and you still have no idea what to wear? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.

Below are outfits for celebrating Thanksgiving in three different ways: with family, friends, or with your significant other!

Outfit 1: Family

IMG_1824

For a standard family gathering, I would opt for an outfit that’s casual, but still put together. A sweater dress with a pair of leggings and comfortable boots are a perfectly cozy combination. The striped sweater dress above was bought at Garage and the boots and leggings were bought at Target, but can be found at almost any clothing store.

Outfit 2: Friends

Jeans and a pretty top are perfect for a Friendsgiving. Jeans are casual and comfortable, but a flowy top and matching boots add a dressier feel. Here, I am wearing jeans from Hollister with a top I bought from Kohls and boots from Forever 21.

Outfit 3: Significant Other

A Thanksgiving with your significant other could be nerve-wracking, and you definitely want to be at your best. For a more formal Thanksgiving look, pair an elegant dress with comfortable flats or heels. Since it’s pretty chilly outside, make sure to add a sweater to keep yourself warm. I bought this polka dot dress from Charlotte Russe. The red flats add a nice contrasting color. These ballet flats were bought at Forever 21, but can be found almost anywhere. The cream cardigan can be found at Garage.

I hope this helped you decide on your Thanksgiving fashion dilemmas. Eat lots of turkey, spend time with family, and most importantly, have a happy Thanksgiving!!!

Football Game OOTD

It’s football season which means tailgates, soft pretzels, and spirited outfits! One of my favorite parts about being a Rutgers student is our Big 10 football games. I love how much spirit my school has (even though we end up losing a lot of the time) and how the games bring us all together!

I’m wearing a Rutgers halter tank top I bought at a Rutgers student center paired with Abercrombie low rise shorts. I decided to spice up the outfit with Rutgers knee high socks that are available at Pink (Pink has super cute Rutgers apparel) and shell top Adidas.

I decided to do my makeup quite heavy with heavily lined eyes, winged mascara, and red lipstick. Instead of wearing my Rutgers hat that I most often opt towards for football games, I chose to curl my hair and put it up in a half pony. I felt like a cute little cheerleader, although afterwards I have to admit my hairband was so knotted in my hair I had to cut it out lolol.

 

RU RAH RAH!

Thanksgiving

Hello everyone! How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? I hope it was wonderful! I know mine was! I ate TONS of food. My dinner included mashed potatoes, baked ziti, spinach, corn, and of course turkey! And for dessert I had some pumpkin pie with whipped cream and pumpkin pie ice cream on the side. I’m still full!

We celebrated with my step-dad’s family who I absolutely love. His sisters have a bunch of young kids that keep me company. They’re adorable!!

IMG_1254

I wore this beige sweater from Forever 21 paired with green jeans I bought at PacSun for $10!!! My moccasins are from Payless and I accessorized with a long, gold necklace from 5-7-9!
