5 Looks I’m Lusting For: December

Posted in Fashion
on December 13, 2017

HOW IS DECEMBER ALMOST OVER?

Guys, the amount of denial I am in about how quickly 2017 has come and gone is unreal. There’s still so much I want to get done before we say goodbye to 2017, which you can read more about in next week’s post. But, until then, I wanted to share some fashion inspiration with you since we are getting closer to winter. We have already seen snow here in Pennsylvania, so I know that my mind is focused on layers, cute accessories, and all the cozy vibes.

Make sure you share what outfits you have been loving from Pinterest, or your own closet! I would love to have a little more style and fashion inspiration sent my way!


You know when an outfit has a perfect combination of cute and causal? That’s everything I love about this outfit here. I also love the mix of patterns and textures in the outfit, too. The gingham paired with plaid, and the textures of the scarf and hat that perfectly complement the coat and boots. And can we talk about how amazing this outfit is with practical, warm boots like this!? Everything about this outfits screams winter to me, and I’m loving it.

I want to know how I can wear skinny jeans, white sneakers, an oversized sweater, AND look as adorable like the girl does in this outfit. I’ve been struggling to find a button-down shirt to style under a larger sweater, but I feel like I can’t pull it off on my body type. If you have any recommendations on styling sweaters and button-down shirts, please leave a comment below. P.S. I desperately want a pom pom hate for winter, and I have no shame. Question: how do you feel about white sneakers? As much as I love them in outfits, I feel like I would never wear them because I wouldn’t want ot get them dirty!

You know those women who you can tell have it all together just by what they’re dressed like? That’s what I think whenever I see someone wearing a midi skirt and heels. This outfit SCREAMS Happy Holidays with the red and black plaid. I have been on the hunt for a plaid skirt for the holidays, and winter, but I haven’t had luck finding something modest enough for work. If you have seen anything online you’d think I would like, please drop the link in the comment below.

The combination of a classic, sophisticated outfit includes everything in this outfit: white, button-down shirt, dark denim, statement heels, and a classic coat. I love everything about this look because I love the preppy, clean look it gives. I feel like I could get away with wearing this in the office because of how professional and classic it looks. I also love that this has staples pieces like nude heels, a white blouse, and a coat. That makes it very easy to replicate, but you can also make it your own with your sense of style.

This is definitely a wild card outfit for me, and I’m all about sharing these types of looks because it inspires me to step out of my comfort zone more with my style. I would LOVE to be able to pull off something as bold as a fun, quirky sweater, and pair it with an even more bold pair of glitter/sparkly pants. This outfit is my inspiration for the perfect New Year’s Eve look because it’s festive, but you wouldn’t be freezing or uncomfortable like you would be in a dress all night long. Plus, who doesn’t want an excuse to be warm and comfy while you’re ringing in the new year?

What looks/styles have you been loving this month? What are you wearing for Christmas and for the New Year’s festivities?! Make sure to share everything in the comments below!

5 Trends I’ve Never Tried + Don’t Plan to Wear

Posted in Fashion
on October 11, 2017

There are so many trends that have come and gone over the years, and there are some trends that may last for a several seasons. After writing a post on the different shoe trends I’ve never tried, I thought it would be interesting to talk about other trends I’ve seen over the years that I’ve never tried regardless of popularity. It has been refreshing to see how minimalism plays a roll in my shopping habits because I don’t buy the latest trends as they come out. Instead, I work with what I have, and if I truly love something, I will buy it. Make sure to let me know what are some trends that you’ve never tried in the comments below!

1| Chokers

I really thought I was going to change my mind on this one because I LOVE how these look on other people. I have a cross necklace I wear every day, and I never take it off. So pairing anything with the necklace that isn’t rose gold doesn’t look right. So, I decided to give up on the idea of buying a choker for a trendy, fall outfit. I’ll leave this trend for the fashion bloggers on the Internet!

2| Bralettes

I would love to be able to pull this trend off, but I know it’s not happening. I’ve accepted it and plan to move on. You know you’re becoming an adult when you stop buying things that aren’t practical for you. Most bralettes aren’t comfortable or supportive enough, so I know it’s not the most practical thing to buy and wear. Instead of fighting it, I know it’s not something I’ll ever find in my closet, and I’m okay with it!

3| Kimonos 

Yes, these were HUGE a few years ago, but I’m happy I didn’t jump on the trend because like most trends, they tend to fade out without a trace. Also, I don’t know how practical this would be in Western NY/PA where it’s below freezing for five months of the year. Again with making smart shopping purchases as an adult! If you know it doesn’t make sense for the region you live in, don’t buy it!

4| Overalls

Okay, I’m sure my mom put me in these when I was younger when I didn’t choose what I wore. Since then, I haven’t put on overalls, and I don’t plan to. Honestly, they wouldn’t flatter my figure, and I know I wouldn’t get use of of them like I would want. Nowadays, if I plan to buy something, I want to know that I’ll be able to wear it for work, errands, date night and every occasion in between. Overalls may be cute and trendy, but they are a trend I don’t plan to try.

5| Maxi Rompers

For two summers, I was all about rompers during my junior year of high school and my senior year of college. I wore the same few rompers over and over again without shame. But those rompers quickly faded, and I got rid of them all because I no longer wore them or loved them. This past summer, we were introduced to the maxi romper, which is combination of two trends I no longer have in my closet. So, this is something I don’t plan to wear anytime in the future because, like overalls, I don’t think I would get a lot of use out of it.

Have you tried any of these trends and love them? What trends haven’t your tried from this list, or any other trends you know you won’t be giving into anytime soon! Make sure to share everything in the comments below!

5 Looks I’m Lusting For: September

Posted in Fashion
on September 13, 2017

Is sweater weather really the best kind of weather? The answer is yes. Always yes to sweater weather.

I don’t know about you, but I am pumped for fall and all the cozy things in life. I’m ready for Bath and Body Works candles, the change in weather, sweaters, fall bucket lists (even though I don’t always get to do everything I want to on those lists). And, above all else, I’m ready for fall fashion, which is why I’m sharing five looks that are getting me so excited for the new season.

This sweater is what Autumn dreams are made of. I am on the hunt and I’m determined to find a long, open-front cardigan and I plan to wear every single day throughout the season. If you have any links from similar sweaters you own and love, PLEASE leave them in the comments below. My favorite thing about this type of cardigan is that it looks like a blanket, but you also look so dressed up!

Okay, I know we just got done talking about adorable, perfect sweaters, but hear me out on this one. I’m also loving how this looks so darn cute but she’s wearing a sweater, leggings and cute shoes. To be honest, I think it’s all about the neutrals. Nude is a color I’m lusting to own more of in my closet because I think it’s chic, classic and extremely versatile. If you have seen any nude sweaters, tops, etc., please share those with me as well!

I promise I’m not going to talk about the sweater because it’s evident that I’m in love with long, open-front cardigans and that isn’t going to end any time soon. So let’s move on to those adorable shoes. I’ve been loving loafers and masculine-style flats for fall. I’m sick of buying flats that are destroyed after a year because I wear them too much. I need shoes with a thick, durable sole and that will last with miles of walking. Make sure to send your recommendations my way!

You know those sweaters that you can wear with anything and everything? I feel like this sweater has tons of potential for versatility. I would love it casually with leggings or jeans, but I also feel like you can tuck it in to a skirt since it’s a thinner material. P.S. This is one of my favorite colors to wear during fall and winter. I never been an orange or red type of girl, so this is the perfect warm-tone color to get a small mix of both colors in there.

I always told myself that when I was older, I would wear cute heels all the time. Now, I’m more practical and I want shoes that are comfortable. But, I LOVE these shoes and how this entire look is pulled together with different shades of nude. I also love the sweater draped over the blouse. I’ve been only trying to achieve this exact look for years now, so if anyone has any tips on how to look cute and pull off this layered look, please let me know! P.S. that clutch is adorable and inspires me to carry less things so I can carry cute clutches, #amiright?


What looks have you been lusting for? What outfit is your favorite and most similar to your style? What are some fall trends you’re hoping to try this season?

7 Shoe Trends I’ve Never Tried [& Don’t Plan To Wear]

Posted in Fashion
on August 30, 2017

I’ve always been a pretty practical shopper. I was never the type of person who would buy something simply because other people had that item. In middle school, I wasn’t rushing to Hollister or Abercrombie & Fitch every single day for the newest arrival. (I did get several things from those stores over a few holidays, though.)

There are so many trends that I personally didn’t care for; and still don’t care for to this day. There are so many that I can separate them into different categories. Today, we’re talking about shoes. Make sure to leave a comment letting me know what shoe trends you’ve jumped on the bandwagon for and which ones you’ve never liked.

1| Ugg Boots

Ugh to Ugg boots. (See what I did there?) This one is pretty simple because I couldn’t understand how a pair of boots could cost $200. I felt like the majority of my friends who owned them were always afraid to wear them because they would get dirty and ruined way too easily. So you’re spending $200 on boots you don’t want to wear because you don’t want to ruin them. Yeah, no thanks.

2| Sperry’s 

I never understood why these were so popular. But like Uggs, Sperry’s blew up in popularity when I was in high school; and every single person owned at least one pair. I remember girls in my classes would complain about the blisters they would get from first wearing them for awhile. So, again with buying something that you don’t even want to wear, but now you’re not wearing them because they’re not comfortable. It never made sense to me.

3| Adidas Sneakers

Would I wear them, maybe. But I’m probably not going to buy them regardless. I remember these were huge back in middle school. Then they were shoved in the back of everyone’s closets through high school, donated to charity by college. Now, post college, we are all buying our second pair. Funny how that works, am I right? I don’t even hate the brand or style of them, but I don’t see myself buying them because I’ve always been a Nike girl.

4| Birkenstocks

I’m sure they’re so comfortable because that is what their claim to fame is. In college, I felt like the hipsters were the first people to jump on this because that’s the actual definition of being a hipster. But, I never really saw the reason for the hype. $100 sandals that will definitely be too gross to wear after one summer of sweat and dirt. Yes, you’re right, that sounds so appealing. I’m more than fine with my inexpensive sandals to wear to the beach and during summer.

5| Converse Sneakers

Yes, really. Another pair of shoes that I know every single human being owns except for me. To be real, they make my feet look huge. I don’t know if that’s me feeling self conscious about wearing them, but they aren’t flattering on me at all. I want to like them because I feel like they’re everyone’s default choice when they need something comfortable, but I don’t see myself ever jumping on the converse kick.

6| Combat Boots

This simply comes down to style. Combat boots were never really my style. I never had an edgy look or edgy sense of style. I have always been a person who prefers to wear more classic pieces that will last for years to come rather than wearing things that are more trendy and don’t necessarily fit my style. So, they weren’t something I was interested in buying.

7| Crocs

No explanation needed.

5 Looks I’m Lusting For: August

Posted in Fashion
on August 7, 2017

It has been a minute since I’ve done a five looks I’m lusting for post, and I knew August would be the perfect month to bring those back on the blog. After a month of self-care content and how to achieve your goals with vision boards, I want to keep August fun and fresh!

Make sure to share in the comment what summer trends you’ve been loving so far, or if you’re more excited for fall fashion coming up here in the next few months?! Also, if you were one of the MILLIONS of bloggers who talked about the Nordstrom sale, be sure to let me know what items you picked up that you would recommend to a friend.

Over-sized tops like this have been a staple for me all summer long, and I don’t think August will be any different! I love that you can easily wear this to work, but you can also style this casually with denim or shorts. I’m also loving the statement earrings that have been everywhere this summer, but I haven’t taken the plunge to buy them myself.

Cold-shoulder tops + chunky, strap sandals = the perfect outfit combination for August. I have also been loving the knotted-top trend that I’ve been seeing all over in stores and with other bloggers recently. It’s a simple detail that can transform a plain T-Shirt. I need more cold-shoulder tops in my closet because pretty soon I’ll be busting out my fall sweaters, and will have to say goodbye to my summer clothes for the season.

Ruffle sleeves and bold, embroidered patterns have been catching my eye all summer long. This dress is slaying the summer trend game with the off-the-shoulder trend, floral embroidered trend and ruffled sleeve trend. At first, I wasn’t sure how much I would like this, but after seeing it more and more, I’m definitely loving it for the end of summer. This dress instantly makes me want to take a vacation to the Caribbean, and makes me wish summer would never end. What are your thoughts on ruffled sleeves and bold embroidered patterns?

These romper dresses are EVERYWHERE and I’m not mad about it. Although I don’t think I could ever pull off this outfit, I love seeing other bloggers and influencers style it. The outfit is partly casual because of the romper, but the long “dress” in the back would make me feel like a movie star. Am I the only one who feels this way? Have you tried on one of these yet? TBH they seem rather intimidating, so I haven’t, but I’m starting to think I need to try one before summer’s over! So if you have any store recommendations, leave a comment below!

You know how I’m always throwing in a wild card outfit for these posts? Well, here’s my August wild card. You all know I love my white T-Shirts and cute booties, but that pinafore is quite overwhelming for me. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the detail and that it’s denim, but I don’t think it would be anything I could pull off. It also takes me back to the 90s when I owned one pair of overalls that made me feel so cool. Do you own overalls? Are you liking that this trend is coming back? Let me know in the comments.

What trends and styles have you been loving this month? What are your thoughts on the trends I’ve shared today!? Make sure to share links for what you’ve been loving in the comments below!
