Style Steal: Taylor Swift & Reese Witherspoon

Hello everyone! I don't know about you, but I loved the outfit Taylor Swift wore during her livestream with Yahoo announcing her upcoming album. I later found out Reese Witherspoon wore the same thing! The exact one they wore was by Monica Rose and cost $330 total, but I found almost the exact same two-piece outfit for $72 from Missguided. Such a steal!

Laser Cut

shorts // navy dress // red dress // tank top // skirt // white top // purse

In the past few months, I have seen laser cut clothing everywhere. And I love it! I am a sucker for anything with a lot of detail, so laser cut clothing is right up my alley. It adds so much more to simple fabrics and textures. My favorite piece that I own is a pair of black laser cut shorts similar to the ones above. I cannot tell you how many compliments I receive every time I wear them. Let me know what you think about this trend in the comments!

Fall Fashion Must Haves: Topshop

I was recently browsing Topshop online and found so many cute things for fall on their website! Fall fashion is my absolute favorite. I love the dark colors like navy and cranberry, I love layering, and I also love how everything looks so comfy and cozy. I decided it would be fun to choose a website and then the fall fashion must haves from each one. So without further ado, here are my picks from Topshop!

Fall Trends: Camo and Army Green

Hello everyone! I am so excited for this guest post by Ellen from A Pop of Pink. Make sure to check out her blog!

Fall always reminds me of army green, oxblood, and orange. Look in anyone’s fall wardrobe, and you’ll probably find one of, if not all of, these colors.

One of my favorite colors to wear is army green. I have an army green jacket that is a few years old from Urban Outfitters, and I wear it all the time in the fall. Army green goes with a lot because it works as a neutral the same way black does.

A big trend for fall that incorporates army green is camo. I’ll be the first to admit it: most of the time, I can’t stand the pattern. I’m not a nature girl; I don’t hunt. But I will say that pieces like this J. Crew Factory vest (pictured above), kind of make me want to sport camo this fall.

Camo is showing up everywhere: outerwear, accessories, even workout gear. I honestly didn’t believe that camo could ever be this trendy. Camo isn’t just for blending in with nature or hunting in the woods. Now, it provides a sporty edge to any outfit.

Will you be sporting camo this fall?

A Day At The Beach: My Essentials

     Since I have been lucky enough to grow up by the beach, I thought I would let you in on everything I like to bring in order to be beach ready for the rest of the summer! Summer is still in full swing here where I live and trips to the beach are still one of my favorite ways to spend a day. The nice part though is that many stores are trying to get rid of their summer inventory in order to prepare for fall, which means big sales for us shoppers out there! If you know me, you know I love good sales. In fact, I rarely buy things full price anymore (college budget you know).
     Because of this, I wanted to let you all know about a site called! It's an awesome site that lets you buy and sell gift cards at a discounted price. I know in the past I have received gift cards to stores that I don't shop at anymore, so this is a great way to get a lot of that money back to spend it where you want. Or if you see something below that you're dying to have, you can buy gift cards to the stores such as Nordstrom, Pac Sun, and Target for a value less than what it's worth. I highly recommend you all go check it out! Also, let me know some of your beach essentials in the comments below!

My Dorm Room

Like I promised, I am continuing my back to school series! Today I decided to post some pictures of what my freshman dorm room looked like last year. I was in standard dorm room with one roommate (I didn't show her side for her privacy) and we shared a communal bathroom on our floor with all of the other girls. This year I will be in a suite style room with my best friend so I will be sure to post pictures of that in September! Living in the dorms was great - I definitely recommend it especially for freshman! For reference, almost everything is from Target and my bedding is Kate Spade. Hope you enjoy!

Back To School Outfits

I cannot believe it is that time of year again! August has arrived and that means school is starting up again. I don't start until the end of September, but I know a lot of you start this month! Even though it's sad to see summer come to an end, fall fashion is my absolute favorite. I have put three looks together below that I think would be great for the first day of school! Also, this is my first back to school post, but I am working on some more so keep a lookout for those coming soon!

1. Cute and Casual
