What’s Your Major??

Hello everyone! This blog is going to be targetted to those who are college students. I am going to make a back-to-school lookbook soon and I could really use your help! I am going to be doing four different looks depending on your major!

Here are the types of students I am thinking of and their majors…

  • Business Woman
  • Fine Arts Woman
  • Science Woman
  • Kinesiology/ Athletic Woman

I could really use some advice if you fall into any of these categories.

If you are a business student who has to do a presentation, what would you hope that others would think about you when they first see you?

If you are a fine arts student, how would you dress in order to express your individuality?

If you are a science student, what are the dress code requirements for those lab days that you feel that I should keep in mind?

If you are a student who loves to keep active during the school year, what are some easy ways to dress up your athletic wear so that you are not having to carry multiple outfits?

I am looking at filming this back-to-school lookbook which is something that I have never done before, but just thinking about it makes me so excited!

Here is my target audience best described….

What The Rain Told Me

Hello everyone! As you know from yesterday’s post, it was raining here in my hometown. I left out some details of the significance of the rainy weather so let me explain by saying this first, it stormed so badly in my area that I was only at work for an hour before everyone was sent home due to a bug power outage. The rain came in with a bang and caused flooding, many accidents, power outages, stalled cars, lightning shows, gusts of raging wind and panic to a lot of people who were out and about or watching the news at home. Eventually the rain did stop in the evening, but man was it scary Monday morning.

I never saw this storm coming. Never heard form anywhere that there was a chance of rain or anything like that so I was definitely taken off guard. Secondly, the rain washed away a lot of filth. The plants are standing tall and bright now and the streets in the neighborhoods look brand new. Whatever bird poop was on my car prior to the storm was long gone and when the sun finally peeked out, it was like a different place than before. This got me thinking of my how much my soul could use a bit of cleansing.

I had school, work, my fashion endeavor, my fitness journey and social life all over the place and organization was non-existent. I am going to really try to be more consistent and to be honest, I really enjoy blogging at night before bed because it reminds me of how I used to write in my diary, but once school starts, I am not sure if anyone is going to stay up to read my blog. I can still post in the evening, but it would probably be at 9 p.m. which I believe is a respectable hour.

Speaking of consistency, I want to transform my Instagram into a set theme or pattern instead of posting random things all the time. I have been YouTubing videos on how to edit photos, how to pose, how to set a theme, how to view grids and all sorts of things. I am able to dive deeper into this now that I finished my summer courses! I took two classes and gave it my best shot and thankfully came out with passing grades in both classes. I owe it to myself these next two weeks to put myself first now and focus wholeheartedly on my blog and on my Instagram and of course taking some fashion photos for you all.

So how does any of this relate to the rain we had over here?

Well for starters, the rain was pretty scary at first and things got pretty ugly. I felt this way when I started this blog and my Instagram account. I found myself doing the first photo shoot and felt kinda silly posing in a park. I honestly felt overwhelmed and tired afterwards. Overwhelmed and tired were feelings that I got know a bit too much this summer. Now that I do not have to worry about going to school, some weight has been taken off my shoulders.

Secondly, the rain went all out at first and flooded everything, but after a while it was more steady. This is how I feel about the way my Instagram account is. I uploaded about four photos the first day I created my Instagram which was June 4, 2017. I also posted about three photos a day which was super tiring and an unrealistic expectation of myself. Now I try to post one photo a day and sometimes two. Either way, I don’t want it all to be revolving around the same shoot because I don’t want to annoy followers with the same kind of photos over and over again.

Lastly, the rain nourished everything around it in a way that no human simply can’t do by themselves. This taught me that I am going to need help from others if I really want my fashion endeavor to be a success. I am a very independent person and I hate asking for help, but I need it. I can only take so many good photos of myself, by myself. It helps when someone can take your photo. Also, I cant be the only follower to my fashion account and expect people to get tips and outfit inspiration. I am seriously nothing without any of my followers so I will end this blog by telling you all thank you again for becoming a part of my fashion family and following my Instagram account or blog right here on WordPress. Your support means everything to me and I always try to be as interactive with you all as much as possible, so don’t be a stranger, say hi and comment once in a while on here or on my Instagram. I love hearing from you all.

Think about what it is you really want and just go for it! But remember to stay stylish while you are out there working for what you want!

Back In Black

Finally! I have been able to blog at an earlier time today! Is everyone’s week going by fast? Mines either.

It’s actually crunch time right now for me and those who may be taking summer classes. I am drowning in homework and am trying to remember every single deadline and of course, work is also picking up as we get closer to the fall semester. I feel like I’ve been constantly talking and thinking about school, but that’s because school is pretty much my life right now. I don’t see anything wrong with that personally, but I will admit that I am really looking forward to my two weeks off. Yeah, unlike two months off, I only really got two weeks off. This is okay, hard work pays off and I cannot wait to get that degree!

Who knew that my campus would be a great place to take some fashion photos? Honestly, this is the last place I would have gone, but since my boyfriend and I went on a random day at a random time, it was pretty nice to take pictures there! Oh, and my outfit was black. Picture of my outfit is in the image below.

Remember that you can always find outfit details on my Instagram account! Give me a follow so I can reach my next goal of 150 followers!

Back in Black Outfit Closeup

Did you know that you can pretty much dress up a pair of shorts with a nice blouse and jewelry? Shoes can also transform an outfit from looking casual to dressed up. If you do not want to look too casual or over-dressed this semester, boots are always the best shoes to wear because they are super versatile and won’t hurt your feet when you walk all over campus.

Back in Black

I think that the most important rule about wearing black is that your outfit does not have to be boring if you stick to this neutral color or any neutral color for that matter! Any time I like any black clothing, it is because it has its own uniqueness to it. The shoes for example have a jeweled design in the front. The blouse has ruffles and lace detail while the shorts have the white polka-dots to help the outfit come together without overpowering or blending in too much. Let me know what you guys think about this outfit and if you can, check out the picture that Target shared from my Instagram account! Link to see it is going to be right below this sentence.

Have a great day and make sure you go to my Instagram tonight to see the woman who helped inspire me to wear this black outfit! Stay stylish everyone!

 

Fall Semester is 1 Month From Now!

Hold up, retail stores….what do you mean back-to-school? Some of us haven’t even left school because we take summer classes! Anyways, today it hit me when I realized that one month from today starts the fall semester for some of us. Some people may have an earlier or later date, but either way, it’s coming for all of us! The summer heat may be increasing, but starting next week there will be some changes in my schedule since my work schedule is going back to its fall hours and my summer 2 class is getting more challenging and coming to an end in 2 weeks. I will have to adapt to a new schedule which is not always easy. I am still new to being a fashion blogger so I am going to see how I balance school, work, social life, family and fashion blogging. No worries, I swear I am not going to disappear. If I do not post on here a day or two, you can always follow me on my Instagram account alamocitysara to follow me on a more daily basis.

Back To School

As I look ahead I am really trying to consider what is and what is not practical of me to wear as I go back to school. I will find myself walking all over the place. I am going to have to find outfits that are going to be appropriate for work, but also cute enough for school. Some days I will have spare time to go home and change into something more comfortable, but I know that it is more of a hassle. The truth is that college students will always find themselves hauling ass one way or another, but that doesn’t mean that I should at least look great while doing it! I wish I had a school locker as big as this storage door full of clothes to change into!

Back to school 2

Another huge deal for me this fall semester is that my boyfriend is going to be going to the same school as me! Ever since we dated, we have always gone to different school and have had to put in extra time to see each other which got exhausting. I’m really looking forward to carpooling and being on campus together. I know that my plate is going to be full, but I know that what doesn’t kill me will definitely make me stronger. Before I can truly get excited for the fall semester, I have to finish and pass my summer 2 class that I am currently taking. Wish me luck everyone!
