The Chic Uniform

The Chic Uniform

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.

Autumn iPhone Wallpapers!

Happy almost-autumn everyone! This is one of my favorite seasons. The leaves changing, air becoming crisp, pumpkin-spice everything, and warm sweaters make me feel very happy and content. Perhaps because my mom has always decorated our home for autumn making it feel very warm and inviting. It makes growing up and leaving the nest a little painful. I figure I have one more autumn left where I can spend the entire season at home before I have to move out and get a big-girl job.

In honor of this lovely season, I’ve found a few iPhone wallpapers online that are freebies! Ignore the slight differences in size between them. They all worked fine on my iPhone. They vary in color and style so hopefully you find one that suits your fancy! They are linked to the website where I found them so you can properly download them onto your phone. Enjoy!

How to Dress When Running Late

Running Late

Running late is probably the most common offense a college student commits. Partied too hard the night before? Prime target for a hangover and other nasty side effects that day after. Pulled an all-nighter catching up on homework? Definitely a candidate for being late to class. Any college kid knows that having an outfit prepared for the days when you are going to be late for class is essential to surviving and still looking great.

And here I introduce my running late outfit! I can literally have this on in under 3 minutes. White jeans are going to be a vital part of my wardrobe this semester as well as a great bag highlighting the warm mocha colors of Autumn. I found a reasonably priced pair at Ann Taylor but Gap has great ones like this. In true preppy fashion however, a pop of bright pink adds so much to any outfit. I love this Lilly Pulitzer travel mug. I saw it in a boutique in my town and had to walk out of the store before I bought it.

Chic Shells: A Beach Theme for Your Home

Chic Shells
I’m so clever with titles aren’t I? I just loved the chicness of all these pieces put together. Beachy themes can either be really classy or really tacky. If you’re hanging anchors and putting sea shells everywhere (complete with crusty sand) I would say it’s a little tacky. However, capitalizing on the natural elements of the beach is a great way to bring the outdoors into your home without literally doing it (think of those sand crusted sea shells).

A Glamorous Place

On a trip to the mall yesterday I discovered a few lovely home furnishing stores that just so happened to capture my taste impeccably well. Restoration Hardware and Z Gallerie were my favorites! I love rustic, chic looking furniture and designs that compliment virtually any location (i.e. beach, mountains). Granted these stores were both very expensive, the designs and quality are well worth the investment. I snapped a few photos of my favorite things and thought I would share them with you. Comment with your favorites! Enjoy!
