Back to Campus 2017 :: Closet Wish List

Working in retail is something I truly love. Don’t get me wrong, like any job some days suck, some days I don’t want to go to work, and some days customers just make me want to scream. But overall, I love it.

One of the reasons I’m currently loving retail work is helping people with their back to school shopping. It was always one of my favorite parts of the school year and it is definitely the part I miss the most.

Best Dressed Guest :: Wedding Season Inspiration

It’s wedding season!

I adore weddings – absolutely adore them. I have had so much fun at work recently helping everybody pick out items to wear as a wedding guest.

Closet Wish List :: Plaid

Plaid is one of my favorite colors and I have pretty much lost count of how much plaid I own. If I were one of those people that organize their closet by color or pattern, over half would be plaid . . .

And I am not remotely ashamed of this. In fact, I put this little closet wish list together to show you that no matter what your signature style there is a plaid for you.

Closet & Make Up Wish List :: Birthday Edition

Today’s my birthday, ya’ll. And in typical me fashion, I’ve been scouring the interweb to figure out what I’m going to gift myself. I usually pick one or two things to get myself over.

What? Gifting to myself? Oh yes….I am a firm believer in the ‘treat yo’self’ philosophy and holidays are no exception. After all, why not? I believe we get this one life so we might as well eat what we want, watch what we want, wear what we want, and all that jazz.

Back to School Blues :: Fall ’16 Closet Wish List

One of my favorite parts about going back to school – and the part I’ll be missing most – is shopping for great, versatile pieces to wear to school. You already know that I’ve been stalking my favorite stores for fun pieces. These are my Fall ’16 picks!

Graphic tees and tanks are a great way to show your personal style and are awesome to layer with all types of jackets and cardigans – a must when you never know if your classrooms are going to be freezing or sweltering!

 

Plane tee, pink tank, pineapple tank

Cardigans are always a good investment piece that can be layered for every season. Bonus – they can come in basic colors and traditional pieces (good for multi-use) and fun shapes and prints (great for freshening up your style).

Grey, Pink, Merlot

You cannot go wrong grabbing new jeans. Just make sure to get some that work with all different types of shoes and weather so they’ll work all year! One of my favorite things to do is get two or three really versatile pairs, one super fun pair, and one ripped or cropped pair. Whatever style(s) you pick, make sure it fits you and your personality!

 

dark wash, medium wash

white, extreme ripped, ripped

medium light, dark flare, dark skinny

A few dresses never hurt either! The great thing about dresses are that they can be dressed up or down for class, study groups, or date nights. Pair them with tights, a denim jacket, or a cardigan to change it up.

black tee, white lace, black maxi

long sleeve, pink tee, grey sweatshirt

Leggings are super popular these days, too. They work dressed up, dressed down, paired with tons of shirts, and even under shorter dresses. They are my go-to when the weather cools down – perfect to pair with a sweater and boots! In my opinion, the very best leggings ever are from Black Milk*. They are perfection, but a little pricy for leggings. However, they hold up super well and are the most amazing things ever with basic styles and ridiculously fun ones. They are opaque (except the ones that aren’t meant to be), thick, breathable . . . can you tell I love them?

 

Sporty stripes, Whales

Matte, Mermaid, Tartan

*Black Milk also has amazing EVERYTHING. They have both Australian and U.S based websites and sometimes you can find different things on each site. I have a ton of their stuff and all of it is amazing quality.

Bonus: It’s spring and I adore spring! I love the boho looks, the floral, and the pastels.
