Finals Week Fashion: OOTD

Finals Week Fashion: OOTD

In a finals week slump? Have you reached the point where you can no longer remember the last time you showered because your days and nights have been spent cooped up at the library, wearing the same outfit of sweats and sweatshirt? When you realize that you’ve been in the library for so long you’re not sure what time it is, nor what day…

As for Waing, her solution to relieving this mood of “I’m such a mess. Finals finals finals…” is by dressing up. It may not actually improve your study habits, but at least you’ll feel better while you cram, and you won’t be as embarrassed to go out in public. Not speaking from personal experience…

This outfit it perfect for those with warm-winters. A summer maxi skirt still keeps your legs warm while looking stylish, and long-sleeve crop tops are all the rave this winter. Choose a lace crop-top if you don’t need the insulation. While summer prints may be hard to wear this season, try pairing them up with dark solid colors. If this doesn’t work – put those summer clothes away! You don’t need them!

Good luck on finals everyone!

College Fashion – Twerk Team Sorority Fashion Shoot

As promised, here is the long awaited suite photo shoot! Huge thanks to all these lovely ladies who let me play photographer 🙂

Image

We call ourselves the Twerk Team Sorority. The theme for this photo shoot is Girls Night Out.

First up we have Palak sporting light pastels for an overall casual, yet cutesy look. The grey wedge heels make this look appropriate for a nice dinner out at let’s say… BJ’s!

Image

Next we have Maxine, pulling off my dream outfit. Here we have all the fall essentials displayed at once: the black circle skirt, a beret/beanie, stockings, black boots, and a long sleeve crop top. Black and maroon are worn best during the fall.

Image

Again with black and maroon, we have Christina also sporting a black circle skirt (I’m telling you – a must have). Circle skirts are best worn with either a cropped top or by tucking the top into the skirt.

Image

Next we have Alyssa wearing all dark navy blue – another great color for fall if you’re not into the whole maroon palette. I remember when tucking in shirts was regarded as dorky, but now it is very fashionable with the styles they are coming out with today.

Image

If you live in SoCal, it’s still pretty warm here. No need for heavy coats or many layers. Here we have Rebecca wearing a patterned dress suitable for most any season, but toned down by a black cardigan.

Image

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the craftsmanship of this waterfall braid (done by Waing, bow added by Cindy).

Image

Next we have Cindy, looking cute as ever in a beautiful flowered top from Forever 21. You can never go wrong with neutrals and black pumps – stay classy.

Image

And now we have Waing, pulling off a black laced romper (I am so jealous). Like I said, it’s still pretty warm in SoCal, but as long as you stay with dark colors, you can still incorporate summer clothes into your fall closet.

Image

Here is yet another example of combining summer wear with fall wear. Here is Christina pairing white lace shorts with a warm-toned sweater and neutral flats. She is not usually this serious.

Image

And now for Natalie (who I think looks likes Anna Kendrick). She looks absolutely adorable in this 50’s themed blue dress with cutouts, and curled ringlets.

Image

Is that the black circle skirt you’ve been blogging about in every single post lately, you ask? Yes, yes it is. You must wear it every single day! I do.

Image

Phew that was a long post. Surely that counts for an entire month of blogging! I hope you enjoyed. Comment down below which outfit is your favorite!

Simple Summer

Simple Summer

Summer is the best time to relax, kick back, and watch Netflix; or perhaps go for a run, jump in the local pool, or tan in your backyard. Whatever the occasion is, during the summer I flat out don’t feel like dressing up, and I know I can’t be the only person who feels this way. Instead of succumbing to my usual outfit of running shorts and a tank top, I provide the solution to this lack of motivation.

1) Big statement necklace. So you feel like wearing a basic t-shirt with some shorts? Just add a big, loud necklace to make it look like you planned out your outfit perfectly.

2) Something more than just flip flops. To stand out in the crowd, wear sandals that accentuate the outfit and not dull it further. For example, sandals with such features as straps, rhinestones, belt loops, and braids can change a look from “just go out of bed” to “I meant to be casual today.”

Details:
Tank top – Forever 21
Long-sleeve crop top – Windsor
Necklace – Unknown
Shorts – Kohl’s possibly (?)
Shoes – Style&co.

Happy Monday!
