New Beginnings and Old Pictures

No, I have not given up on blogging.  I know it has been an eternity since I last posted, but so much has been changing in my  life.  There have been so many new beginnings, I recently started my first year at college, which has already been an amazing whirlwind. I can’t wait to share some college outfit ideas!

These photos are old, I took them with the intent of posting them a few weeks ago, but college happened.  I wore this outfit for an event at my summer job!  I wanted to stay professional but still show my personal style, so I wore this lace H&M skirt with a Schoolboy blazer.

Cold Summer Day Outfit

You are probably tired of seeing all my work clothes by now, I finally have some down time to dress casually before I start school. It has gotten way to cold in my area, I’m talking fall temperatures, so I had to adapt my usual shorts outfit. I reached for several of my favorite pieces, and I apologize if you have seen this outfit before. I also wanted to showcase my new hair! It’s not drastic but I absolutely love the change, I needed something fresh for the upcoming season, and I think my colorist Pamela did a fabulous job!  Also sorry for the poor quality iPhone pictures, I forgot my  camera!!

In Work Clothes: Orange Boyfriend Pants

This look is really simple but I love how it subtly showcases my personal style.  I wore my orange boyfriend pants with a simple navy tee.  I dressed the look up to be office appropriate by adding some accessories including necklaces and a cheetah belt.  Almost everything I  am wearing is from Gap. This was totally unplanned and I didn’t realize it until I was filling out the “What I’m Wearing” section at the bottom of this post.

In Work Clothes: Pink Orange Outfit

We are now nearing the end of summer. Pause for a second to collect your thoughts, because it has gone way too fast!  I keep having to be reminded what week it is. I’m sure you have worn your favorite sundresses so much this season and are almost sick of them by now.   Don’t worry; I’m here to give you a little tip to squeeze the last bit of life out of your over-worn sundresses.  Take inspiration from this pink and orange outfit.  Recall this target sundress from last season???

I didn’t cut it apart and sew a skirt, I just folded it down!  You can do this with almost any dress that has a somewhat fitted top, or has elastic.  I added a belt to my skirt/dress just to add some more shape! Hopefully this  little trick helps you rejuvenate your closet to make it through these last weeks of summer.
