Fashion Uniform

2 4 3 1 5

Hello beauties! College has been getting the absolute most of me. If I'm now working or at a club, I'm in class. It's draining! But it's also oh, so worth it. Amongst all the academic chaos, however, I've found my way to a cozy and cool fashion uniform. Don't get me wrong, though, I'm not talking grey sweatsuit uniform. I'd rather wear culottes than get caught in that (aka, I would never). Basically, my fashion uniform became an interesting patterned piece with a bright colored piece topped (or... footed) with a nice pair of heeled booties. The above outfit is one of my favorites to wear when it's warmer out, and I got to break it out in the 60º weather of the Boston weekend. I love this combination! There's nothing that makes me happier than birds, bright red, and a sunny day.

What's your go-to fashion "uniform?"

Lucky Number 7

5 6 1 3 4

I've been back at school for over a month now since coming back from winter break, and I already miss it. I took this photoshoot right before I left and right after I found this lucky number 7 sweater in my mom's closet (it's mine now). This has got to be my favorite sweater now, though, and it totally reminds me of home. The funny thing is, number 7 really is my lucky number, so the fact that I dug it out of my mom's sweaters and really feel connected to it is so funny! Every time I peep it in my closet. I just think of being back at home with my family with the freedom to dress for warmer weather -- Boston definitely does not give you warm weather on a usual basis. This lucky number 7 sweater is probably my favorite thing in my outfit right now.

Do you have a lucky number or something in your closet that reminds you of home?

2016 Style Resolutions

{ source }

New Years Eve has always been, for me, a night for celebrating with good food and good people. As the clock ticks down, I'm always hoping that next year will bring a plethora of changes; this year was no different. I always pretend that I'll work out more (I mean... I should), spend less (again...), and that all my style dreams will come true. That last one's kind of vague, no? And I've realized, that if I want all my style dreams to come true, it means that I have to work piece by piece and very hard. And this year, I think I'm ready. So, in order to make all of my style dreams come true, I've created a list of style resolutions that I'm promising to stick by this year.

1. Dress everyday like it's a style post
Up to this point, I really have thought about my style choices as alright, especially compared to other bloggers (see #2). Because of that, I tended to dress okay in real life and put my absolute best outfit forward for style posts on the blog. There are so many reasons I need to change that mindset. For one, I want to start posting more style posts for you guys, so I need to be ready any day. Also, fake it 'til you make it. I love my style, and I need to start loving it more until I can pop on anything and be certain I look good. If that means dressing up, so be it.

2. Stop comparing myself to other bloggers
Comparison kills. It's true.

3. Invest in classic pieces, not "must-haves"

Are you planning on making style resolutions this year? What's on your list?
