CAMO JEANS + SWEATSHIRT

Nov 10, 2014

Yes. I love Camo. Is it obvious? I know I have presented these Camo skinnies in a style post before, but this is something new. Unlike my other Camouflage outfit posts (you can see them here), this outfit is more sophisticated and less edgy. Now that I am a junior in college, I like to consider myself fairly sophisticated. As I prepare for my future in fashion, it can only be beneficial to my career. Sophistication is always in style!

The accessories are key to making this outfit more sophisticated: Ballet flats, a statement necklace, a watch, and an over-sized purse. Other accessories such as wide-rimmed glasses, pearl earrings, or a bold lip are also easy ways to transform an everyday casual outfit look to be a lil more classy and sophisticated.

In other news, I'm officially 21!! -that's weird to say. Not much has changed other than the fact I can legally drink alcohol whenever I want now. I'll try to keep it at a minimum of 6 days a week. 
JUST. KIDDING. 
But, I am excited to explore the bar life with friends and enjoy a glass of wine on occasion (:



What I have been craving lately.

 A big faux fur coat. Love.

 This checkered print is so basic yet has the power to make any outfit feel so chic.

 I would wear them with everything if I had a pair. Going to the top of my xmas list.


 Cozy blankets and candles. It's just that time of year where all I want to do in the evening is cuddle up by a fire swarmed by the aroma of spiced scents.

 The poncho is coming back in style. On the search for the perfect one to add to my fall/winter wardrobe.

 Again, with the stripes and simplicity. It has a way of being so basic yet so complex. Makes me want play with paints and patterns and, oddly enough, sharpies.

 Make up tutorials are super convenient and are nice for someone like me who has had the same makeup routine for the last 6 years.

The Man Bun. It's been trending and.. I like it. I don't understand it quite myself, but I cannot lie.

I've been getting inspired by anything and everything lately. Most likely my self-conscious telling me to work on my art again. If only I had enough time, space, supplies, and motivation! (or maybe just enough money to buy all the clothes I want...) I'll let y'all know if anything changes.


Have a great week.

Hey November.

Nov 3, 2014

Well hey there November. To say time has gone fast these past couple of months would be an understatement. I have not been able to put up a new post up on the blog for a while now, but I will do my best to make up for it (: I have been completely immersed in school, work, and friends this fall. Oh ya.. by the way. It's already fall! And while Illinois weather absolutely beautiful in the fall, it is also very very short. If only the pretty fall leaves and weather would stay here longer! (but I know that its a fat chance here in Bloomington/Normal)
In this post, I captured the short fall season with my cute military jacket. Typically, I would pair this olive green jacket with combat boots and a plaid shirt, but since it was relatively nice out I used the jacket to help transition my summer look into fall. Unfortunately, I probably wont be able to wear these light layers for much longer. Eventually I'll need a full on winter coat and scarf! After experiencing a very cold Halloween weekend- which by the way I rocked in my workout Barbie and vampire costumes- I am already over the cold. Lots to catch you guys up on! The top I wore is a white imitation leather lace-looking top with a sheer base. I wore my once full on black, now charcoal jeans with my always favorite cheetah loafers. I added some simple stranded necklaces to complete this fall transition look.

 Apple orchard with the fam.

Carved pumpkins with good friends.

Hope you guys are having a relaxed and chill Monday. Have a great rest of the week. More posts to come soon. I promise (;
