Shorts All Season!

I love guest posting and today’s post is no exception! Daisy is a talented lady who clearly loves the camera and loves her blog. She contacted me about a month ago and we decided to cook something up together. I’m taking over her blog for a day and she’s got mine! Enjoy and check out her blog after you’ve marveled at her edgy outfit!

Hello everyone! My name is Daisy and I blog over at Simplicity Relished, a lifestyle blog about celebrating simple things and living the life we love. I’m so happy to be collaborating with Liz today to share our styles for this season! Be sure to check out her wonderful post today about style on a budget on my blog!

Today I wanted to share with you how I wear a favorite summer staple all year round. We all love our summer shorts, but usually have to retire them when temperatures start to drop. But pairing them with tights and boots with a sweater on top is the best way to keep them in your autumn and winter wardrobe!

What I’m wearing: Mustard Yellow Banana Republic sweater (similar here) // Printed Shorts (similar here) // Indigo black boots (similar here) // Grey tights (similar here) // Tory Burch sunnies (similar here)

What I love about wearing shorts and tights is that it’s a look you can dress up or down! To dress it up, tuck in a button-down blouse and belt the shorts; to dress it down, wear a chunky sweater like this one or a simple long-sleeve knit. The possibilities are endless.

Will YOU wear shorts and tights this season? I would love to know!

Playoff Attire

Playoffs

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!

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.

An Au Naturale Stylish Outfit!

Nothing says summer to fall like this! We love the rompers, but this long sleeve version in a very muted tone is great for that transition time. I love going black with my accessories because it looks so chic. A red lip is also trending (thanks Taylor Swift!) This outfit would be so great for a Saturday afternoon at the outdoor mall or at a cute little cafe somewhere.

It’s kind of funny because I have all these great ideas for adorable outfits to wear and nowhere to actually go in them! I live in a rural town and it’s perfectly acceptable to go literally anywhere in your sweatpants. During my time living in Washington, D.C., it was so great to dress up a little and go somewhere, even if it was during the day. Here’s my little tribute to those of us who get to dress up!

Staple Accessories for the Lady’s Closet

As promised from my previous post, here is my list of staple accessories and shoes you should have in your closet. Before you question why everything is nude and black, remember that the point for these add-ons is that they are supposed to go well with everything. You can add color later on!

One thing I should probably mention about the items shown here is that I totally realize for most people the brands I chose to include are unaffordable for the average person. After a little bit of research and browsing some stores, I discovered that most of these things are available at Target, they just won’t have the designer logo or price tag. Enjoy your shopping!Staple Accessories
