I just wanted to update you really fast. Karlie has sadly left me alone to die and rot while she goes venturing off into unknown territories :( As cool as that would seem, she actually has just gown away to school...so for the time being, it's just going to be me running this blog!
But back to the subject at hand....
It's that time of year again. The time when we must switch out our summer clothes to prepare for the dark and cold months to come. Haha, I'm just kidding guys (unless of course you live where the weather patterns change very drastically). I know some people dread going back to school, but I kind of look forward to it. Not the homework part of course. I look at it as an opportunity to show off your personal style, unless you have a uniform.
Going back to personal style, don't be afraid to try something new. Find out who you are through fashion and clothes. Want to venture out of your comfort zone and try something edgy? Go for it! Better now than never. Take this look for example. The embellishments on the dress might be going out of the box for some, in which case you could pair it with oxfords and a tote bag. However, the combat boots and black leather bag speak to the edginess everyone has inside of them. Be daring! Be bold! It might change how you look at things in the future.
On the other hand, dresses period might be to far out of the box. You know when you just have those days where you just want to wear sweats and a t-shirt, but you still don't because you want to look cute? Try this outfit. Leggings or yoga pants are a perfect alternative to sweats! They are comfortable and cute! Pair it with any oversized sweater you have - the tight fit of the leggings prevent the look from looking to slobbish. Take any of your favorite accessories to dress it up a little and you're good to go! You can even take a pair of moccasin slippers and it'll look super cute!!
And finally, for those days where you just take something from your closet and throw it on. Jeans are staples in everyone's closet (if you don't own a pair, I highly recommend you go out and buy some...like NOW!) They go well with anything, and I'm serious when I say ANYTHING! If you're feeling casual, go with a simple solid v-neck or t-shirt. But in case there is ever a time when you want to impress a certain someone, try an outfit like this! Wear a bandeau under this sheer top to show a little, but not too much. Or just wear a simple cami under if you feel more comfortable. The dangling earrings will draw more attention to your face, which is always good! The bangles are a nice accent, along with the bows on the flats.
