Why I Wear Glasses: Hiding Yourself

August 31, 2015

I want to start writing more about personal things on here, such as body image. Let me know how you guys feel about this!
I have worn glasses since I was 10 when I was unable to see the chalkboard from the back of the classroom. Ever since then, they have been attached to my face and pretty much became a part of me. Lately I have been considering getting contacts (after allll these years) and a coworker has recently asked me why I wear glasses. The idea later popped into my head to write a little post explaining my reasons for wearing them.

Popsicle Dreams

August 27, 2015

This top from Dressgal is so fun because who doesn't love popsicles? I decided to pair it with a body con skirt because of its boxy silhouette and some chunky black heels from Newdress. I have so many black shoes, but lets get real: I will always buy more (ahaha). This is something I would wear for a night out of drinks and dancing with the girls while it's still warm out.

Back 2 Cool

August 24, 2015

Hey y'all I'm super stoked to be back with outfit posts! I took a little hiatus because of work and vacation...but this week I start back my job on campus, my internship, and have a really exciting fashion archives class! This also means I will have more time to focus on my blog so yay! I thought it'd be appropriate to feature a back to school look with some key pieces: a striped t-shirt, denim skirt, and Converse All Stars.

Atlantic City Travel Diary

August 21, 2015

I took a few days off and went to the beach in Atlantic City, New Jersey with my best gal pals. It was kind of a spur of the moment thing because Alicia and I had been "planning" to go to the beach all summer, but just never got the chance because of work. Since school starts back up next week we thought it was now or never...luckily our friend from back home, Sara, was able to get off too! She was able to book us a hotel a block from the beach and I honestly miss the whole trip so much right now.

Ready For the Game

August 14, 2015

I've been really into the whole sporty-chic look lately...maybe because I used to be a tomboy back in the day. For this look the center of the stage is this super cute baseball-tee style romper from DressGal that I am actually obsessed with. DressGal is a similar company to Dresslink, as it is a wholesale company with super cheap items! I would actually say Dressgal is a little pricier, but still good stuff. I followed the measurements and got this in an Asian large and it fits me perfectly! I especially love the drawstring because the cinching helps me look like I'm not drowning in all that fabric...and the pockets are an added bonus as well.

Instagram Round Up | Summer So Far

August 11, 2015

Despite all the working I've been doing this summer between 2 jobs (ugh), I have been able to play a bit! Thought I'd share some of my favorite snaps that are all up on my Instagram account (you should go follow me!).

Dresslink's Back to School Sale

August 4, 2015

Well it's August already, which means many souls will be heading back to school/college/uni! I decided to pick out an outfit featuring items from Dresslink's back to school sale. A lot of the items are things I would wear more so in the summertime, but you can add tights or throw a cardigan over them so it's appropriate for school, depending on your dress code. They do have a lot of super cute backpacks I would suggest checking out :)

This fall I have one class, an internship, and will be working in my university's archive, so I'm channeling my inner librarian with this look..classy, yet cute with a collared polka dotted dress and this adorable leather backpack. I love the retro vibes both of the pieces give off...add some tan or light brown oxfords or boots and you're good to go! What would you wear on your first day back to school? Let me know down below :)

ALSO! Please check out (and enter!) my giveaway where someone will win a free pair of prescription glasses from Firmoo! The giveaway will end on Thursday.
