Outfits of The Week: Part 6

Hello everyone! Welcome back to my blog! It’s about that time where we reflect on the outfits worn this week so let’s get started!

Monday- This skeleton shirt is from Target and of course I was sporting a Halloween inspired shirt to kick off my week. Even though the weather here is all over the place, I am still trying to get into the Halloween spirit and get ready for fall. I paired this blouse with some faded purple pants and wore some grey shoes from Shoedazzle to top it all off.

Tuesday- For Tuesday I wore a burgundy skirt, also from Target, and decided to pair it with black tights, boots and blouse. Since red is my favorite color, I decided that I would wear red lipstick and a red rose necklace that I got from Hottopic several years ago. The skirt is a soft suede material and I love that the studded pocket detail gives it a vintage-y look to it. The necklace also looks like it would have been worn in medieval times, while the rest of this outfit was kept pretty modern. This outfit was my favorite one from this whole week.

Wednesday- You know I love my high-waisted jeans from Fashion Nova. I wore high-waisted jeans by them on both Wednesday and Thursday because they are the best pants ever! I wanted to look put-together yet stay comfortable on this day so I wore some comfortable flats and layered a skull kimono I got from Hottopic, over a simple black tank-top. Still in that Halloween spirit!

Thursday- Thursday is usually my most casual day out of the week as far as outfits go because this is usually my longest day and I cannot afford to have any wardrobe malfunctions interfering me. Simple does not have to be boring though! Luckily bright colored tops with lace detail can save the day! Now-a-days even sneakers are fashionable. I love these sneakers from Steve Madden. I have also worn them in one of my previous ‘Outfits of the week’ blog posts so I’m sure they look very familiar.

Each week continues to fly by so fast! I am pleased to say that I am surviving my classes and slowly but surely learning how to edit videos. I am very excited to see things come together! Let me know which outfit was your favorite!

Have a great weekend and stay stylish!

10 Things To Never Say To A Fashion Girl

Last night I vented to my boyfriend about how I just couldn’t figure out what to wear and how my room was a complete disaster and that nothing I tried on fit right, blah, blah! Since he is a guy who cannot relate to my feeling of wardrobe helplessness, he expressed that he couldn’t understand my feelings and couldn’t understand why I did not have the capability to, and I quote, “just pick something!”

Judging by the look on my face, he regretted telling me that. I remember sitting up and mimicking, “Just pick something?” Then more angrily, “Just pick something?!

At that moment I thought of the perfect topic to blog about which is *drumroll here*

10 things you should never say to a fashion girl

Here’s a list so check it twice before you even think of saying these words to a fashionista

1.”Just Pick Something” (sorry babe)

giphy

Let me break it down for you why you shouldn’t tell a fashionista this. We would rather be overdressed than show up somewhere looking sloppy. We do not like to look sloppy and we want to look gorgeous. I don’t think my boyfriend would appreciate it if “I just picked” a hoodie and sweats with flip-flops instead of taking the time to look nice. While he wears his button-up shirt and cool kicks, I am pretty sure that he would not want to be seen next to a girl on campus that other students cannot tell if she’s another student or a hobo. No. Not going to happen. Therefore, I cannot and I will not, “just pick something.”

2.¬† “How do you have nothing to wear? You have tons of clothes!”

giphy (1)

Yes, we know we have tons of clothes. But trends are always changing and so is our desire to keep up with those trends. Is it such a crime?

3. “You’re going out in that?”

giphy (2)

It breaks my heart when I hear this and I know this statement goes both ways whether you look overdone or looking like a walking wardrobe malfunction. Either way, it’s pretty heartbreaking to hear this. If a fashionista takes time to get ready and walks out in a form fitting dress and tall boots with heels and her significant other or loved one tells her she needs to “tone it down” or “change into something else,” it sucks. I hate hearing this, even when I know it is for my own good. When I hear people say this, majority of the time the person saying it is someone who loves the person who just walked out to show off their dress attire. Words hurt more when the words come out of someone you love’s mouth. And it sucks even more when your really thought you looked adorable.

4. “Aren’t you going to be cold in that?”

giphy (8)

Let’s face facts: even though the weather is going to get colder, you still want to wear skirts and dresses right? In my opinion, you should be okay if you have a trench coat jacket to wear whenever you’re outdoors. A few years ago I wore a high-neck, floral blouse with a blur skirt that hit me right above the knee with some flare to it and heels for Christmas. I was proud of myself for finding the perfect blue coat to wear over it. Once I got inside my grandma’s house, once I took off my jacket and sat down, she took one look at my outfit and asked me, “aren’t you cold in that?”¬†Because she is my grandma, I laughed it off.

5. “This item is sold out in your size…”

giphy (5)

This is a straight-up horror story. Period.

6. “Maybe this can be your Christmas/ Birthday gift”

giphy (7)

No. I want it now or as soon as pay day comes!

7. “Gift cards and money are the worst thing to give someone for their birthday/Christmas!”

giphy (3).gif

*spits out water in shock* Says who?? We can all use a little more money whether it comes in paper or plastic. I don’t see why these things are viewed as “thoughtless” gifts. Whenever I get these things, I know that the person knows that I am picky and a broke college student. They are doing me a big favor by giving me a gift card or money instead of buying me something that I probably wont use. I would like to know your opinion on this! Do you think gift cards and money are thoughtless gifts? Leave a comment!

8. “Oh, you must have a lot of money”

giphy (4)

A person’s closet builds up over time. Not all at once! Can fashion blogging get expensive? Yes! But so does smoking and drinking. So does musical equipment. So does automobile maintenance. So does sports. So does art. All hobbies come with a price whether it is financially or time consuming. We do these things by choice and no, this does not give anyone the right to assume we have all the money in the world. I assure you that a lot of us do not.

9. “You can never find anything good at the thrift store”

Yes you can! People get rid of great, quality items all the time! You just need to take the time to look around.

giphy (6).gif

10. “Maybe your outfit will finally catch so and so’s attention!”

I heard this a lot when I was single, but you know how us girls do NOT by $30 blushes to get a boy’s attention? The same goes for clothes too! Especially fashion girls who buy clothes because they want to look good for themselves!

This marks the end of tonight’s blog. I added Dean Winchester GIFs because his facial expressions just kill me! I hope you guys enjoyed reading this blog and learned something today. Good night and stay stylish!

Light Jackets to wear NOW under $40!

Here’s a fact for you, I am a sucker for jackets! I love how easy it is to throw a jacket on top of a simple pair of jeans and a t-shirt and look a little more put together. I love that jackets help tailor an outfits specific style whether it is the print, fit or color. I always find myself gravitating towards a nice jacket when I go shopping even though I know I have plenty in my closet. Still, I just can’t seem to have enough! I live in Texas and even though it is autumn season, it is still very hot down here in Texas so jackets are a little too warm to wear right now. Luckily there are some light jackets to consider right now that I can wear indoors where the AC can be set to a ridiculously cold temperature and a jacket is needed. Here are my picks on some jackets under $40 that a perfect for fall weather!

Outfits: Week 4

Hello everyone! I have already completed a quarter of the Fall semester and cannot believe how fast time is flying by. The world of college is a fast-paced one! This week was a little different for me personally because my Monday class did not meet at my school, but instead took a trip to south side’s chamber of commerce were we had a conference with the chamber’s vice president. On this day, I dressed up a little more formal that I would’ve if I had gone to the classroom instead so as you will probably notice, I am wearing a pale peachy-pink blouse with a leopard printed skirt and some black flats. I took this picture right before I left work that day.

Tuesday also had a different schedule than usual since my second class got cancelled! I had a super short day and just went with the outfit that required less effort than usual and laid-back compared to how dressy I was the day before. Even though this outfit and simple makeup look took me about 10 minutes total, it’s still a super cute outfit and was my favorite one this whole week! You guys know I am a crazy cat lady! I am obviously super happy in this photo!

Caturday

Wednesday it was just a day with me and my boyfriend so I decided to go back to my dressed up self and decided to take on the world wearing my new favorite skirt from boohoo which you guys saw earlier this week!

Thursday…my school gave out free food. Brownies were involved. I am a messy eater. So I ended up getting chocolate on the original blouse I had which was a light blue color. Not cool. This is pretty much why I ended up going to Target because I wanted to get a different blouse. I found some pretty cool stuff on clearance and wore this new top happily as my original blouse paid a visit to the washing machine. The blouse I am wearing in this photo is one of the blouses I bought at Target and the leggings and lipstick shade make it perfectly suitable for a fall outfit. Happy Fall by the way!

This week was definitely more different than usual since I was only really at school Tuesday and Thursday, but if I only did two outfits, this blog would have been way too short! Up next on my blog is all things in celebration of CATURDAY!

Stay tuned and stay stylish!

A Great Shopping Day

I was not supposed to go shopping today, but when it came time to take a picture of today’s school outfit, I looked down at my blouse and saw that it had some chocolate stains on it from the free brownies my school gave out. I never say no to free food.

My boyfriend and I decided to make our way to Target and yes, my intention was to buy a top to wear instead of sporting chocolate stains on a light blue blouse. About an hour later into Target, I walked out with two tops, a dress and a skirt. I got all these items for under $40!

While at Target, I also noticed some cute styles that were calling my name. Target has been really stepping up their game! I walked out very impressed. So first off, everything I bought was from the clearance rack. Secondly, clearance items are my favorite!

In the images below are all the items I bought today while shopping at Target.

I spent a total of $38.34 on all four of these items. Just look at the receipt!

Yes, I am so aware of how wrinkly these clothes look, but I will iron them and model in them so you guys can have a better look at them! So what do you learn from reading today’s blog? Don’t dismiss the clearance section!

Stay stylish!

 

Flats!

The other day I worked out at the gym after my last class. I had the small locker room to myself and was almost fully dressed after taking a shower when another student walked in. Naturally, I looked up at her from putting on my shoe and said hi to her. She smiled back and told me that she really liked my shoes. “Shoedazzle,” I stated with a smile.

I have blogged about Shoedazzle before and I really like that they have a variety of different styles. There is a good mixture of unique and practical merchandise and almost every time I get a compliment on my shoes, it is when I am wearing a pair from this online store. However, I am not here to talk about Shoedazzle again, but about flats. Let me tell you something, I love flats. I think they are stylish and comfortable for daily use and can be both dressed up or down. The student I spoke to in the locker room told me that it was kind of hard to find some cute flats. If I run into her again, I am going to have her check out this blog so she can see some cute styles! Here are some cute flats I found while internet shopping.

First one is from Shoedazzle and they are called Cathleen Flats. These also come in a pink blush color and a dark blue with floral print. The flats I wore the other day were black flats with some jeweled detail in the front.

The second pair of flats is from Dillards and it is by Betsey Johnson who is one of my favorite designers of all time. This is her Ann Floral Bow Detail Laceback flats.

I know this shoe says spring, but the reds and yellows still make this shoe doable for fall as well. The bow that is tied in the back adds a girly touch and is opened in the heel area.

Flats #3 are also from Dillards and are the Volatile Lumina Velvet Mary Jane Flats.

flatsvolatilevelvetmaryjaneflats

These have a unique look to them and are velvet which is a great trend for the colder weather upon us. These also come in a taupe color as well. When it comes to flats that hit you above your ankle like these, I would highly recommend that you either wear cropped pants or a skirt so that the hem of your clothes do not interfere with the detail of the shoe.

Flats #4 are from the store Iron Fist Clothing and are called Into The Deep

flatsironfist

These have a unique print to them with hearts, small ocean waves and a leather bow in the front. Iron Fist is known to have unique designs such as this. If you want something that does not have an over-the-top print, I would recommend something cute like these next flats from Iron Fist which are called, Mother of Pearl.

I love the peep toe these have and the clam detail on them. These also come in black for those of you who may not be feeling the pink color. Iron Fist’s products are also vegan friendly!

That’s all I have for you all today. I hope these flats help you realize that flats can be fun and very useful in your closet. Stay stylish everyone! Thank you for reading!
