Campus Casual

2c595104c57a57181eaac8f052f938ca

This post is for all you college students out there! We all know the struggle of having to choose between getting yourself dressed and ready for class in the morning, or sleeping just a little bit longer. I admit most of the time I have just rolled out of bed, brushed my teeth and threw on some shorts and a T-shirt. This semester I’m going to attempt to look like I tried a little when I go to class. This doesn’t mean that you have to put on a dress and full makeup. You can make sweats and a T-shirt look fashionable if you do it right. In this post, I’ll be giving you examples of some looks that I think would make great causal class outfits. Check them out!


The Dressed Up T-Shirt

A great tip to easily dress up any casual look is to add a simple necklace. Long, thin chains, like in the picture above, work perfectly.

Big, Comfy Sweatshirt and Jeans

31bba708ce7b069499d9bccf28677ecb

For those cold fall days, throw on a big sweatshirt over your stretchiest jeans. Not only is this look super comfortable, the jeans make it look more put together than leggings.

Old, Torn Up Shorts

Disclaimer: This look does not promote wearing tiny daisy dukes to class! Instead, get a pair of baggy, ripped up jeans shorts (that cover up your rear-end). These will replace your running shorts and make you instantly look more fashionable, without sacrificing comfort! Pair these with a baggy shirt, sweatshirt or sweater.

Sweats On Sweats

Sweats don’t have to make you look sloppy. A simple crewneck paired with some jogger sweatpants and tennis shoes can make for a chic athleisure look.

The Quirky Graphic Tee

When you’re tried and not in the mood to talk on your way to class, your graphic tee can say it all. Quirky sayings like “I’m not a morning person” or “I need coffee” are really appropriate for an early morning trek to campus.

Sweater/Jean Combo

Just like the big sweatshirt/jean combo, a big sweater/jean combo can look even more put together. Match this with a cute combat or chelsea boot.

Big Knit Cardigan

Lastly, something you can throw over anything, a big knit cardigan. You can pair this item with several looks that I’ve already described. The best part about this is that it’s not too heavy so it’s perfect for those days when it’s cold in the morning and then warm by the end of the day.


That’s it for casual campus outfits.  Grab some of these looks before it’s time to go back to school!

Travel In Style

Are you taking a trip this summer? Do you ever wonder what you should wear to effortlessly combine comfort and style? It can be tricky. You don’t want to be that person that looks like they’re trying too hard to look good, but you also don’t want to look like a slob. I have come up with a few outfit options that exude class, comfort and ease. Check them out!


The Athletic Look

Athleisure has been a huge trend for the past couple of seasons. This look is great for a trek through the airport. The tennis shoes offer comfort and practicality. The big bag is useful for all of the small things you need to throw in for a trip. Headphones are a must for a trip on an airplane, whether there is a crying baby behind you or if you want to fall asleep listening to your favorite tunes. This outfit screams travel chic!


The Boho Traveler

This look has a more boho west coat vibe to it. It would be a great choice if you were traveling from a cold to warm place or vice versa, because there are layers. This look is just plain cool and versatile for any destination.


Pretty in Pink

This outfit is great for a tropical getaway. The dress is comfy for the plane ride and also keeps you cool when you reach your destination. The flats add more comfort for walking from gate to gate. This fun, flirty look is a great option for any summer vacation.


Back to Business

For all of you business travelers, this outfit it for you. It is professional, comfortable and practical. The monochromatic color scheme is so chic and understated. The trench coat adds warmth for those cold drafts on the airplane. The bag is also big enough to fit all of your business accessories in. The headphones, again, a must-have for any plane ride.


Thanks for reading and happy travels!

Festival season is upon us! The music festival craze among young people has been growing rapidly over the past couple of years. From Coachella to Bonnaroo to Lollapalooza, the clothing worn at these events have created their own category of fashion. The unique style can be described as a combination of 1970’s retro hippie, bohemian with a little rock and roll mixed in. If you are attending any of these festivals, or just want to vamp up your street style, check out this list of some must have festival fashions.
