Celebrating Another Decade!

On September 7th, 1997, this young girl was born in Pittsburgh, Pa. She went on to live in three different states, have many career ideas in her mind, lost interest in all things she loved but that did not stop her from going forward in life. Today, that girl is still trying to figure out what she wants at the prime age of 20. Gosh, I am old!

I recently started my sophomore year at the University of South Carolina. So, I wanted to give you a little update on what has been happening in my life so far. I went through sorority recruitment with lots of tears and twisted ankles. I joined the house where I feel the most conformable in so I would like to say I am officially an Alpha Gamma Delta.

For those who do not know sorority recruitment, it is pretty much a process where you are trying to show girls that you are meant to be apart of their sisterhood. Sadly, I had to deal with a lot of judgements during the process but by the end of it, I was able to call one of my favorite houses my home.

For my birthday I was able to celebrate in style with my new sisters at my first function, Fall Band. Although I did not stay there very long, I was able to wear my outfit that I have been hoarding for months. I absolutely love this romper from Urban Outfitters as it shows some skin but not too much to make it revealing.

This coming week, I will be initiated so I will be an Alpha Gam for life, which is kind of scary to me. I am excited and nervous for what is left to come. I absolutely love my big and I am slowly and surely making friends but it is still early in the semester.

Other than my life being about Greek Life, I am taking classes in my major, looking for internships and possibly double minoring. I am still trying to discover who I am, which I still hard. But I am only 20.

I will attempt to make a return on blogging, probably not too soon, but I do miss being able to take pictures of my outfits and writing. I am debating whether I should continue with this blog or not, and I doubt that people are reading anymore. I just hope to go back to what I used to love and I am excited about the future.

Trend Alert: Showing the Sexy One Shoulder

Despite the cold weather coming our way, this new trend involves showing off a little bit of skin. A major trend for the fall 2017 season is the one shoulder where a top will show a classy amount of shoulder. I personally think this look could be sophisticated yet casual at the same time. Here are a few outfits that you can style after if you dare to rock that shoulder.

 This is one of my favorite outfits for just a day out or when you don’t want to wear Nike shorts to class anymore. I love this simple white top and cut off as it gives a laid back look. I added Adidas shoes for comfort and to give it some edge.

Of course, I cannot do a trend without having a sexy outfit! I love this bodycon one sleeve top with a choker built in. With it being a high neck top I would style it with a ponytail. My favorite fall color is burgundy so I wanted to incorporate it a little bit as well as a few gold accents. My styling tip is to try to match your shoes with your bag so the outfit is not all over the place!

When I first saw this top I was absolutely in love! Since the top had a lot going on I wanted to style it with plain bottoms, so I added some culottes and some nude heels. Since there was not a lot of color to the outfit, I added the colorful clutch to give it more of a fun twist to it. This outfit is great if you’re going to a function, it’s sophisticated yet fun!

I wanted to create another casual outfit so I found this gingham print dress which is so adorable! I am a minimalistic dresser so I just added a sweet necklace and some white, lace up espadrilles. This is an outfit you can wear to a picnic or just to walk around a city (especially in Europe). Since the straw bag was rather popular in the summer I thought it would make the look more laid back.

I absolutely love this dress! If you have stayed with me these past few years I have been a huge fan of lace! The cut cutouts in the middle make the dress a little bit sexy and make me which I had the body and the place to wear this to! I love a good smokey eye and tousled hair to give it a relaxed look to it.
Remember that trends may come and go but always stay true to your original style. I hope you have fun with this trend and I hope to see you in my next post! I am so glad to be back!

Senior Portraits

Two weeks ago, I got those artsy pictures that every senior tends to get. I would like to show you some of mine because I love them and my face is so weird that my eyes squint and the creases are created when I laugh and smile. Let’s just say I was laughing the whole time.

For a November day, it was quite windy and muddy but some of the trees still had their leaves.

Mixing with Plaid | OOTD

For some silly reason, I did not get pictures of all my outfits when I started work. I wish I did. But here is one that I got pictures with because I thought it was unique and fun!

I absolutely love the textures on this skirt, it has a few different colors but the main color is the burgundy color which is my favorite for fall. I also picked this plaid top from my work the other week, fighting with my co-worker who would get it (I obviously bought it without her knowing). I did not know it was a blouse but I love the dark blue with the deep red color. My booties are also suede so it gives that kind of 70’s feel to it as well.

Top: Francesca’s
Skirt: My mom’s closet

Winter Nights | OOTD

Hey everyone! How has life been treating you? I recently finished midterms and am so pleased on the grades I got in French and APUSH (it was a 77 but still good enough). I really want to get back into blogposts and keeping up on outfits so here is one from last Christmas.

My family and I went to Downtown Annapolis to see some of the lights they had to offer and why not do it on Christmas when everyone is inside and celebrating? It was cold but it was nice to be able to walk on the streets without cars running us over. I will hopefully include a vlog about my Christmas.

Clean | OOTD

Hey everyone! Happy late Thanksgiving and Happy Black Friday! As much as I would like to go shopping for those awesome deals, I am stuck at home with my puppy. I have had these pictures ready to be shown to the world! I absolutely love this dress for the past year I have had this. I saw my mother wear this sweater with a plaid skirt and I thought it would be cute to pair with the dress!
