OOTD – Winter Whites and Dusty Pinks

Hello everyone! I hope all of you are great today. It feels wonderful to be back with you all! Today’s pairing was something more casual and simple that would be perfect for lunch with some lovely friends or holiday shopping. I paired the white blouse with a white wool scarf to add not only warmth, but also a visual interest to the upper half of my body without being too jarring against the light colors of the overall outfit. The dusty pink jeans keep the overall look soft while still adding a pinch of vibrancy to the outfit. The white heels tie the upper and lower half together cohesively.

OOTD – Spice Up Thanksgiving with a Dash of Leopard Print

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I was finally able to enjoy a beautiful afternoon after what seemed like an endless amount of gray skies, rain, and wind. Today’s outfit is geared toward styling a casual yet pulled together look for Thanksgiving. Here I paired a cream 3/4 length sleeve button down with dark wash jeans. Why I love this blouse for the holidays is that since it has a loose fit it allows for movement and leaves a bit of extra room to eat delicious Thanksgiving food (I’m especially thrilled for apple pie, yum!). The focal point of the outfit is the light, chiffon scarf. It has a combination of prints and colors making it an eye catching statement piece against a simple blouse. Since the scarf has leopard print rimming the peach floral design, I decided to play with a leopard print shoe and bag to keep the theme going through out the rest of the outfit. To top it off I added my Revlon lipstick in Black Cherry …

OOTD – Leopard Print and Tulle

Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday; half way through the week already! Today was my Wednesday morning meeting with the nonprofit organization I am interning for. We recently launched our Indiegogo campaign and are working hard to reach our goal of $15,000 in order to give children of varying abilities the opportunity to participate in gymnastics.  It has been thrilling being part of a great cause in my community! On to the outfit! Here I paired a leopard print 3 quarter length sleeve sweater with a solid black tulle skirt to break up the busy pattern above.  The color of the skirt also helps to highlight the rich browns and tans in the blouse.  The red belt is used to cinch in the waist so it is not lost in the bulk of the sweater and it additionally serves the purpose of adding visual interest to the outfit with a pop of color.  The combination of red and leopard print compliment each other beautifully. The bow front heels add a wonderful touch of femininity to the edgier …

Tip – How to Thrift Store Shop Effectively

Thrift store shopping can be overwhelming. There are tons of clothes bombarding you left and right making it difficult to know where to even begin! I personally have a couple strategies to help you dive into the ocean of clothing found in thrift stores. Have a defined style you are after. It will make a big difference if you know you want to look for a more feminine fit with ruffles and lighter colors or something edgier and so on. It is also helpful to look up images of outfits you particularly like. By doing this, you will have mental images of what you want to look for and accomplish with the pieces you find. Look for specific pieces. Look in your wardrobe and ask yourself what is missing. Maybe you are looking for a blouse to compliment a certain bottom. In my case, I was seeking a soft tulle skirt and I was able to accomplish finding it after persistently looking for that style and not getting distracted by others. Keep an eye out for …
