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.

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.

Sunday Style: The Luck of the Irish

The Luck of the irish

If you don’t know what today is then you probably live under a rock. That being said, today is what may be the biggest drinking holiday of the entire year. And if you’re not wearing green you will most likely get pinched.

On that note, I wanted to get festive with this Sunday Style post and stay with the holiday theme. In some parts of the country (or the world) it is definitely still cold out. In places like Tallahassee, FL. it is warming up to shorts weather but still a bit cool. Here are two great outfits for the cold or warmth, with accessories to wear with both.

Boyfriend jeans and a stripe shirt look classic but still fun with all of the accessories. With this outfit I would definitely subtract one of the jewelery pieces, you don’t want too much going on. A good cross-body bag is perfect for a day of drinking, no need to worry about if you set it down or if you’ll remember to pick it back up, it’s around your body the whole time. For the warmer weather, jean shorts and a long-sleeve billowy top is perfect. Throw on a good pair of sandals to keep it casual.

How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s day, if at all? What are you wearing to show your Irish side (whether you’re actually Irish or not)? Please share with me. I am always intrigued by other outfit choices for holidays.

Sunday Style: The Perfect Spring Scarf

The Perfect Spring Scarf
1. H&M// 2. Loft// 3. Target// 4. Selected// 5. ahalife//6. Target// 7. Layla Grayce// 8. AWear
There is just something about the Springtime that makes me want to post about fashion. Maybe it’s because spring is my favorite season and I just can’t get enough of florals and bright colors. Plus I love the way a loose, light scarf can pull together a simple outfit in the warmer months. I also didn’t wear my scarves as often as I would have liked this past winter. I had them folded away in a drawer that I never look in so I often forgot about them. I want a reprieve on scarves this season to make up for that.
My favorite at the moment is the floral scarf by AWear with the blues, pinks and greens intertwined. I also really love the black and white floral Target scarf, which is really great because mixed black and white is on trend this season.
Please share with me your favorite springtime accessory as well as your thoughts on warm weather scarves. Do you think they are doable as the weather warms up? Enjoy!
