new year's eve...

 Fur Vest: Miss Sixty  /  Turtleneck: H&M (previously worn here)  / Bottoms: American Eagle  /  Booties: Steve Madden (similar here)  /  Clutch: MNG by Mango /  Jewels: My Name Necklace, Kate Spade, AE, J. Crew  /  Shades: House of Harlow 1960  /  Nail Polish: Sephora  /  Lipstick: Sephora

There are two reasons why I love New Years Eve: 1) sequins (on the blog tomorrow!)  2) starting fresh! This year I plan to reinvent my wardrobe with fun and classic pieces. You can see that when you live in Pittsburgh a bold fur vest is a classic piece!
What are you bringing into your 2013 wardrobe?

beating the blues

Blazer: H&M  /  Shirt: T.J. Maxx  /  Pants: J. Crew Factory  /  Heels: BCBG (similar)  /  Necklace: H&M (recent)  /  Clutch: MNG by Mango  /  Shades: House of Harlow 1960

Sometimes winter can be gloomy and cold, so it's important to bring bright and cheerful colors to your wardrobe. I have talked about bright winter colors a lot this week, and it has been keeping me from getting the final blues. If you want to tone down your all bright look, (like I did to present a speech for a course) add a neutral blazer on top. Appropriate but still fun!
Have you signed up for the giveaway yet?

Make sure you do...it ends this Sunday!!

this and that...





We all love a good designer piece, including me, but this college student doesn't want to break the bank. Here are some classic pieces that are a great substitute for the costly designer items.
...I may have to add some of these pieces to my wardrobe ;)


Revlon "All Fired Up," "Plum Night," "Lilac Pastelle"

These three colors are a must for the holidays!
...What colors are you wearing on your nails this season?
P.S. Make sure you check out yesterday's late outfit post!

Well guys, it is that time of year, and this time I don't mean the holiday season. It's finals week. (eek!) So here is my comfy, casual look that is cool and chic but not too fussy. Finals are keeping me busy, but keep checking back on the blog for different things throughout the day!

purple pairing:   sweater  /  pants  / bracelet  /  clutch  /  heels
going green:   sweater  /  skirt  /  scarf  /  boots  /  watch
feeling blue: top  /  skirt  /  flats  /  belt  /  nail polish
hello yellow: turtleneck  /  pants  /  necklace  /  heels  /  purse


In honor of yesterday's colorful post, I am pairing the same bright colors together from head to toe for bold winter looks! I am in love with this trend, and it's no surprise because I love color! Be festive and bright this holiday season.... stop back for an outfit post later
Thanks for reading!
