In light of my team making it into the playoffs, I’m dedicating a post to it. I’m quite happy. It’s been awhile boys! When I was little, my parents would take me to baseball games and I’d be the kid decked out in orange and black jumping up and down trying to get on the mega tron. I was so cute! Now, I’d still be the girl doing that just with a lot more awkwardness. Less orange and black too. More J Crew and Tory Burch with a touch of my team colors.
Some people may hate me for saying this (especially my southern readers) but I really like baseball more than football. There’s so much more finesse in baseball compared to football. Plus, baseball is easier and more relaxing to watch. Its an American past time that I cherish and has been in my family for the last hundred years. Both sides of my family have had quite a few good players!
Tell me what team you’re pulling for in the playoffs!
I was inspired by fall colors today and found these gems while browsing through polyvore. They’re so rich in color and speak volumes about the person wearing them.
This season I’m really loving the Burberry style ponchos! However, most of us won’t pay $600 for one so I’ve found alternatives that are much cheaper at places like Marshall’s and Macy’s. They are just so classy and cozy. Perfect for a day of window shopping or sitting at Starbucks sipping a Pumpkin Spice Latte.
I also love the bangles that correspond with the color in the poncho. Gold and leopard print are really in this season! The same goes for the red patent leather shoes and bag. I was afraid they would be a bit too matchy-matchy but because the shoes are on the bottom and you would carry the bag closer to your shoulder I thought there was enough distance between them to make it work.

The chic uniform of women all over the world starts with a great blazer and ends with the perfect accessories. Though I’m not an expert and certainly don’t work for Vogue, I can pretty much guarantee that this look and styling will always be used.
On a special note, the pink blazer can be just as chic in a hot pink color or magenta. I realize not everyone looks great in pale pink (I know I don’t). I can wear salmon and deep pink colors but nothing in between.

Since my first day of summer officially started today, I found myself with loads of free time and nothing to really occupy it. I spent the last 8 weeks working for my coveted 4.o semester GPA. One of my classes was public relations oriented which partly inspired this blog. As a developing writer, I am bound to talk about more than that. I like to write about what inspires me.
Inspiration comes in many forms. For me, a color, a smell, a place… that is inspiration. Fashion for me is dictated by this. I don’t care too much for the runway styles (though I admire the creativity of the designers) I prefer many of the classics. I am very inspired by New England and the classic attire that is associated with it. One of my favorite things to wear are my Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes. They go with most of my summer wardrobe for everyday activities and seem to last an eternity. Pearls are another accessory I find essential to almost any outfit. Go ahead, call me boring. I enjoy looking put together and knowing that the clothes I pick have been in many wardrobes for what seems like forever. There’s a reason they’re called classics.
I recently bought my first ‘Little Black Dress’ to add to my list of classics I own. I was at an Express outlet in Rehobeth Beach, DE and it was on clearance for $28 (originally around $100 I believe). It was a proud moment for me! I have determined that a dress like this is essential in any kind of wardrobe. However, before I owned this dress I got by with other dresses that essentially do the same thing. One of my favorites is a gray Calvin Klein I found for $15 at Ross. It has a square neckline that highlights my collarbone and fits nicely on my figure! Quite a steal if I do say so myself. Another great one I found for $25 was a DKNY red, fitted dress. It was a great purchase and has led me to believe that the ‘Little Black Dress’ doesn’t always have to be black. Many of the classics can be updated and made personal simply by a different cut or color and still maintain the class and dignity of the originals.
What are the classics you enjoy wearing? Do you personalize them?
