Happy Holidays!

blouse: from amazon
sweater: necessary clothing
jeans: pacsun
shoes: Steve Madden
jewelery: forever 21

Happy holidays everyone! I am finally off from school and I cannot be happier to relax and have fun with my friends and family. I had a really tough semester at school and it feels so good to have a break. Today was my sisters birthday and I went out to lunch with her and had a wonderful time. After that we spent the day relaxing and my dad made a lovely dinner (raviolis yum!).

I found out about necessary clothing from another blog I read regularly call somethingnavy. They are an affordably priced clothing store with several locations in New York City. I, however, purchased this sweater along with several other items from their brand new website. Click the link to check it out!

The shoes are something that I have been looking for for a while. I found similar ones from very high end brand that were well out of my price range. I asked Tony to look for some leopard print loafers for my Christmas present and he got me these lovelies from Steve Madden and I could not be more pleased.

I wish everyone the happiest of holidays! And if you are off from school or work I wish you a relaxing and enjoyable break! Missed you all

affordable gorgeous shoes

I found both pairs on the JCPenney website. The tops ones are the Call it Spring 'McGray' pumps and the bottom ones are the Olsenboye 'Farrow' sandals. Both are very reasonably priced and classically beautiful. I'm in love! Which ones would you get or would you get both =)?

Career Fair look

suit: Ann Taylor
blouse: Banana Republic
shoes: Target

Sorry I have been skimpy on the posting, but I am in the middle of midterms right now. This is what I wore to the career fair a couple of weeks ago. I felt so professional =) but I was very nervous talking to the various representatives. Overall, I think it went pretty well though.
I have been brainstorming on different fall looks so I am looking forward to posting about those. And finally, guess who is taking an interim class in Hawaii this january!!!! =)

Thoughts on personal style

I often get asked the question, "How would you describe your personal style?"

shirt: american apparel
shorts: delia's
belt: forever 21
shoes: forever 21
socks: H&M

To be completely honest, I never know how to answer this question. The one rule that I have every time I get dressed is not to care what someone else might say or think. If the outfit makes me happy then that is all that matters. My only rule is to not have any rules limiting what I wear.

People often expect to hear that someone has an edgy style or a girly style or a bohemian style. I don't think that I fit into any one mold when it comes to this. Sure I have certain trends that I really like and there are certain combinations (like a button down shirt, with a high-waisted bottom and heels! YES please!) that I am particularly fond of, but I think that my style varies too much from day to day to fit into any one style or even a combination of styles!

What do you think of these style labels?

Rain rain go away

The rain seriously limits my shoe choices. I am extremely anti-rain boots. I do own them but I really try not to wear them unless the very thought of going outside makes my socks feel wet. They are just ugly and not very comfortable at all. If any of you can show me a pair of chic, sleek rain boots, please send those pictures my way. That being said, this is what I wore today even though it was raining.

blogger lean
sweater: pac sun
jeans: pac sun
boots: libby edelman via famous footwear

This shoe purchase was one of the highlights of my shopping career. These boots were priced at $80 but after all was said and done I got them for $10. At the same time that I bought these boots I bought another pair of boots originally priced and $150 for $36. Seriously the most amazing deal I have ever gotten. I have loved famous footwear ever since.

I am also seriously feeling the mullet hemline on this sweater. I bought this sweater when I went into pac sun looking for a pair of shorts. Of course I couldn't resist buying it!

I'm off to study for a linear algebra college

Goodbye summer, goodbye tan

The worst blogger award goes to....
me... I am seriously the worst with these month long hiatuses! But I'm back!
blouse: ann taylor
shorts: delia's
belt: H&M
watch: BORA from a boutique in my town
wrap bracelet: my sister bought it! doesn't she have the nicest taste?
booties: wetseal

Aren't you all proud that I am not wearing a single piece from forever 21? It is shocking to me as well. I have spent months lusting over this style of ankle boots. Most of the ones that I was looking at were quite expensive and I am on the budget of a lowly college student *le sigh* I saw a pair in Nine West that were literally identical to these, but were more than double the price.

I am normally not a big Wetseal shopper because other times that I have gone into that store I have felt too old to be there if that makes sense. But, last time I was at the mall I happened upon these beauties and was in love. They also appear to be fairly well made so I don't have to live in fear of having to part with my lovelies before I am ready to.

In life news, I spent the last week of my summer vacation sick with a fever! Major bummer but it does explain at least part of my blogging absence. Now school has started and the warm, sunny weather is starting to fade. I kind of love fall fashion though so it isn't bad at all! Hope you all enjoy this post and I will try my best to keep up the outfit posts and such in between classes!
