Pumpkin Patches & Pretty Pictures

Posted in Fashion
on October 31, 2016

Happy Halloween everyone!!! Hope your holiday’s full of candy & spooky fun 🙂

This past Friday my roommates and I made a little visit to one of the pumpkin patches here in College Station, and made a little shoot out of it! (Shoutout to Akash for taking all of our pictures- check out all his photos on his blog!)

I’m seriously obsessed with pumpkin as a color, and after seeing it accentuated in all of our photos, I feel so inspired to get out and pick up some pumpkin accents to feature in more neutral outfits. Here are the outfit shots!

I love the look vertical stripes give- it gives a little bit of an elongating effect, and the contrast between the navy and white stripes on this top really make it pop. I threw on some black jeans, flat Chanel-inspired espadrilles, and some gold accessories to make for a super cute & actually comfortable outfit. I’m obsessed with this necklace right now, too! Not going to lie, I thought I was totally over the whole Kendra Scott trend, but I saw this necklace this past weekend at Nordstrom and the stone just caught my eye. I couldn’t stop staring at it, so I took it as a sign that I needed it in my life. Isn’t it funny how that happens? Get yourself one here!

Now for the fun part!! Check out some of the pictures we took today- we had so much fun & they turned out so so cute.

The wonders a camera can do, am I right? Have a great week!!

It’s Sweater (Dress) Weather

IT’S FRIDAY!!!!

I’ve had a pretty uneventful week this week! The calm before the storm next week- so many things jam-packed into 7 days- my anniversary, my ring day, and my rink dunk!

Today’s outfit is super simple but perfect for this time of year. I’ve been loving the look of these long beaded wrap necklaces, so I thought I would try to feature it in an outfit!

Loving the way all the earthy tones work together! So fall, so cute, so comfy. 🙂 Have a great weekend!! See you Monday 🙂

Black is the New Black

Hello friends!! Hopefully y’all are enjoying the FINALLY cool(er) fall weather here in Texas as much as I am. The day the temperature dropped below 80 degrees I deemed it was appropriate to break out my sweaters and boots. Just kidding… but not really.

I always get a little too excited when a new season rolls around, to the point where even if the weather’s not cooperating, you can count on me to dress according to what I decide what season it should be.

Anyway, let’s get into today’s outfit post!

I bought this coat last season at Nordstrom from their Brass Plum line, but for some reason haven’t been able to find a way to style it at all. It tends to run just a tad baggy, so I paired it with some leggings tucked into boots to balance the look out a little.

I wanted to stick with a mostly black/monochromatic look, but broke it up with a splash of cream & a metallic grey- this way it’s not too plain, and makes the look a little more everyday.

If you recreate this outfit send me lots of pics! Hope all of y’all have a great rest of your week. Kisses from College Station!

Fun at the Fair

This past weekend my boyfriend and I took a trip back home for the first time in about a month and a half. Mainly to see my family, but of course we had to stop by the fair for the last weekend it was in town! Here’s everything we did + what I wore for our date at the fair.

I’ve been in love with my High Key Quay x Desi sunglasses in Rose Gold!!! I usually think Ray Bans are a little too small for my face and aren’t super flattering with my face shape, but this pair seriously is perfect. I’m so so tempted to grab the black and the blue ones too. Decisions, decisions.

I’ve been loving the denim-on-denim look lately. On this day I was going for cute comfort, and wore a super breezy denim shirt with my light wash jeans. This crossbody was perfect for taking to the fair, because it was just big enough to carry my essentials but still compact. Plus, I get a little paranoid at big public events like this so it’s always a good idea to keep a crossbody that I can always have on me and not have to worry about carrying on one shoulder or in my hand.

Can’t go to the fair without getting some funnel cake, am I right?

Games + rides on the Midway are always my favorite parts of carnivals and fairs. So much fun!!

Had to stop by and say hi to Big Tex! (Sorry for the poor quality, you know how iPhones can be.)

I had been dying all day to get a corn dog and finally got one right before we left. Yum yum yum. 🙂

After our state fair adventures, we stopped by Shake Shack to grab a bite to eat. The last time I had Shake Shack was a little over a year ago in NYC so it’s safe to say I definitely enjoyed it!

On Saturdays We Tailgate

Posted in Fashion
on October 22, 2016

For those of y’all in the South, Saturdays in the fall mean one thing and one thing only- COLLEGE GAME DAY! I always stress about what to wear, and 80% of the time always find myself scouring every boutique in town for a cute maroon dress or top for game day. If any of y’all are the same way, I’m here to save the day!

I thought it would be fun to put together a few outfit ideas so that y’all could get some inspiration for gamedays, or even just in general! My school’s color is maroon, but if your school has a different color you could always take the pieces I feature and just find something similar in your school’s colors.

Let’s get started!

I’m a huge fan of the new choker trend, and I found this super cute one at a boutique in my college town. For $40, I think it was a little pricey for a choker, so the link I gave y’all is for a similar one from Forever 21 for only $4. I bought these maroon booties at Old Navy about a year ago, and I wear them basically all throughout fall and winter- it doesn’t hurt that oxblood was a huge trend last year, so I  had an excuse to wear them all the time! This off-the-shoulder top is super flattering, too. You can find these almost anywhere right now, so this outfit would be super easy to re-create!

Sidenote in case any of ya’ll buy this top: it’s from Old Navy is made with spaghetti straps, but I liked it a little better without them so I just tucked them under my arm! I’m pretty creative, I know.

This next outfit is a little more southern with a touch of feminine. If  you’re anywhere that’s not the South, you’ll probably get some weird looks for wearing boots, but down here in Texas (at least at my school) I’d guess that probably 9/10 people have boots.

As y’all can probably tell, I’m obsessed with off-the-shoulder tops! But I’m not gonna lie, this one made me feel slightly like a cupcake when the wind blew through.

Obviously had to throw in a GIG EM!!! (Can we talk about that win today, please!? 6-0 BABY FIGHT EM AGGIES)

On to the last one!

This one’s relatively simple, but I figured it would be perfect for those of y’all in areas with colder temperatures. Throw on a trench coat and you’ve got yourself a warm and comfy outfit!  I’ve been searching for the past two years or so for the perfect pair of above-the-knee boots, and I think I’ve finally found them! They’re made of a suede material, and they also come in black. I think they’re just simple enough, relatively comfortable, and a perfectly chunky heel at just the right height for me. Did I mention they’re only $50?!? ***EDIT: these boots are currently on sale at Target for only $40! Get them before the sale’s over! Link below.*** You heard it right, I found these babies at Target for just $50. I’m actually hoping to go back tomorrow to grab them in the black before they sell out.
