Forecast: Blizzard

29 Nov

Tonight’s forecast warns us of a 70% chance of “snow flurries” and possibly 7-9 inches of snow. Instead of crossing my fingers and wishing for a snow day, these don’t exist in college, I am forced to don lots of layers and throw on 3 pairs of socks inside my snow boots. The cold weather has inspired me to dust of my fur vest, faux of course, and become a snow bunny this weekend. I love the Ann Taylor LOFT vest I received last year because it can be easily dressed down or up.  Throw it over a pair of jeans, pair it with some combat boots and you are good to mall hop, class hop, and wherever else you might hop. Need a night transition? Pair a vest with a tight dress or skirt and throw on some heels. Done and done.

Feminine Tough

15 Nov

 

One of this season’s top trends it mixing lace and leather together. A little sexy and a dash of sweet. Adding feminine details to an otherwise harsh fabric keeps you from looking too much like a costume and/or a dominatrix. I am loving this look and thought the red studs and the mustard blazer added just the right amount of color.

My New Man Boots

11 Nov

I was home for the night so that I could get snow tires put on my car. I could not have made the appointment at a better time because Michigan decided to throw a half hail/half snow blurry my entire ride home which ultimately caused my car to start dangerously sliding on the highway.

Anyway when I walked into my room I found new shoes via Mom. Yay! I have been really into the military/menswear trend lately because a.) It doesn’t require a lot of planning and b.) It makes me feel edgy. I am not edgy at all, so these boots make me feel extra special.

They are perfect.

Hi I love you.

Do you like the “military boot” look?

Bank vs. Budget: Real Life Edition

20 Oct

Every now and then God decides to throw a bone my way and I find the most perfect pair of shoes in the world (or for the week and then I get bored.) I had been eyeing expensive pairs of tan suede booties for weeks, and although I would cut off my left arm to snag a pair, I’m not even sure that would cover the cost. Thanks to Forever21 I can keep both of my arms and not be completely broke.

Budget:

I bought them for $22.80…steal. I’m breaking out these babies tonight during my sorority date party. We are going bowling so I’m not entirely sure booties is the best idea, but it will make for some great pictures. That is what’s really important..right?

Have you ever found the perfect look-a-like to an expensive obsession?

Loving On Leopard

11 Oct

Animal print had been all the rage over the past couple of years, however this season one major trend is focused just on leopard. Recently I fell in love with a pair of Steve Madden pumps from DSW, but couldn’t justify the purchase because I am literally so poor and I just bought the iPhone.. oops. In order to feel like I was in on the trend, I devoted study time to online shopping. I always have my priorities straight. While I would not suggest wearing leopard from head to toe, I think buying a few items will give any wardrobe a well deserved update.

With fall already in full motion, winter is right around the corner threatening to give me wind burn and salt stained boots. In honor of the long cold months I rounded up some amazing outerwear that would keep anyone warm and stylish…because underneath we are all wearing sweatpants and high-socks.
