Jewel Tone Jackets

Just because summer is coming to a close, certainly does not mean we have to take on a teary goodbye with fun colors. The stigma that comes with Fall, is that color must go out the door, and a neutral wardrobe of black, greys, and brows must take over. A jewel tone coat can turn any frown upside down, with the ease of draping…

Dress Like A Fashionista Next Date Night

Much to people’s disbelief, date night and staying fashionable can go hand in hand. As a self professed man repeller, I love my Birkenstocks and boxy oxfords as much as the next fashionista, but sometimes have to hang them back up in the closet. My go to date night look has become a matching crop top/skirt combo, or throwing on a midi skirt. You…

Fall Lust List: If Boots Could Kill

If boots could kill, this one would knock them dead. I am a huge fan of transitional pieces that can take me from day to night considering that I am often bouncing between classes, meetings, and events. A great shoe can make an outfit, which is why I’ve been relentlessly searching the interweb for the perfect fall boot. Behold, the Stuart Weitzman ‘Demiswoon’ Over…

Back To School (Get It?!)

  I don’t think I have worn a backpack since my first year of middle school. I’m not sure why, but my 13 year old self deemed them uncool at an early age. Instead, I chose to sport tote bag upon tote bag, sore shoulder and all. Little did I know, a backpack doesn’t have to be unfashionable. It can add a pop to…

Beauty Must Have: Gold & Silver Lacy Tattoos

I stumbled upon these super cool, eye-catching tattoos at Paper Source about two years ago, and have been wearing them ever since. I “layer” them with my watch for events, and will put a thin one on my wrist from time to time. They are the perfect accessory because they do not get caught on things as some bracelets can. For an unexpected twist…

A Very Preppy Date Night

If there was one designer I never thought I would wear, Lilly Pulitzer would be it. As a girl that only recently embraced any color other than black, white, and certain shades of grey, Pulitzer’s designs are foreign to me. Unfortunately, head to toe black for a summer date night is not really an option. I love the fun of going out, but not…
