Morningtide

I want to share the brand new spring collection for Chloe + Isabel. The Morningtide Spring Capsule Collection. These nautical pieces were inspired by the shapes, textures + tones you might come across in a sunrise walk by the shore. … Continue reading

Sunday Style: Flats on Flats on Flats

Flats on Flats

6. Accessorize// 7. Nasty Gal//8. Piperlime// 9. Modcloth// 10. Aldo//

Who doesn’t love flats? They are practical, almost always comfortable, are easier to walk in than heels and are perfect for the workplace. I always wear flats to work, mostly because I don’t really have work appropriate heels but also because I would probably be the only one wearing heels at work. And I don’t really want that. hehe. So I have put together 13 pairs that I’d love to share with everyone. I honestly don’t know which pair I like the most because I think they are all fantastic.

Which pair is your favorite? And do you prefer flats to heels in the workplace or the opposite? Please share with me!

Sunday Style…on Monday!

While I wasn’t able to get around to my usual Sunday Style post yesterday, I was able to take a few pictures of my outfit. I am on the verge of sending out my graduation announcements to friends and family and have been wanting to take a picture to put into the announcement. Especially for my family that I don’t see too often…and my dad who’s most recent picture of me is probably from the 10th grade. I think it is time he has an updated picture. Therefore, my boyfriend and I went out to FSU’s famous Westcott Fountain to shoot a few pictures.

I also wish I got a better picture of my outfit from Saturday for you all. A group of the graduating seniors in the sorority decided we wanted to get together and have an evening out. We started off with dinner and drinks (white sangria, if you must know;)) and then went out to Midtown, which is where a few of the more upscale bars are. It’s not so college-y out there. Mostly locals and grad students, so it is always a nice change of scenery when we make it out there.

Fabulous Finds

In the past two weeks I have made some fabulous purchases and received some amazing gifts (from my birthday). I wanted to go ahead and share them with you all. And hopefully I can pull off some great outfit of the days with them.

What are some of your recent fabu-finds?

clothes

Madewell

This blouse was featured here and I loved it so much that I had to ask for it for my birthday. It is the best. It’s soft and billowy and very comfortable. This blouse is cute dressed up with slacks or dressed down with jeans. Perfect for both casual Fridays or a not-so-casual Monday.

lime

Sharagano

My mom got me several dresses for my birthday that I wasn’t too fond of. So we went the day after and returned them. Fortunately we came across this dress in a pastel green color. It is extremely comfortable and I cannot wait to wear it to my internship once the weather warms up. While I own the dress in the green color, I was only able to find the navy version online.

pink peplum

Forever 21

Shopping today with my roommate I followed her into Forever 21 not intending to spend any money. But let’s face it, I can’t not go into that store and purchase anything. I found this pretty little number and HAD to try it on. I fell in love and it only cost me $14.00. What a great purchase.

floral blazer

XOXO

I received this blazer from my older sister for my birthday. She both thought I would hate it and really like it. I had to tell her about 10 times that I did, indeed, like this. She had my new internship in mind when she purchased it.

primer

Urban Decay

I have the Urban Decay Naked Pallet which came with a sample size of this primer. Let me tell you, it is ah-mazing. And since I recently just got a $20.00 gift card to Sephora I put it to good use and purchased this little baby. Although it is small, the associate there assured me it will last a long time.

Sunday Style: The Shift Dress

I am obsessed with the shift dress. It’s pretty versatile, wear it belted for a more fitted look or leave it undone for a more conservative look. Either way it looks great on anyone. The shift dress is perfect for work or a night out. Keep it simple with light jewelery and flats or dress it up a bit more with a statement necklace and heels.

Being that I am a college student on a budget, I try to make my Sunday Styles affordable finds, therefore, each of these dresses is under $50.00 with the exception of one dress, the Chaya Colorblock dress, which is still under $100.00.

My personal favorite dresses here are the Creme Bead Pattern Cut Out and the Butterfly Twiggy Dress. I have also found the perfect pattern to sew a shift dress and I hope to get to do that sometime soon. I will definitely share with everyone if and when I do that.

If you have a favorite shift dress please do share! I love to hear other thoughts.
