College Outfit Essentials

Let me guess, it’s the week or two before school starts, you have all your school supplies and dorm room accessories ready to go but you haven’t even started packing your clothes yet. Because, let’s be honest, who wants to make that decision on what items to bring and what items you have to leave behind.  Well, I am here to make your packing experience a little easier, I have put together a top 10 closest essentials list that I know I wouldn’t be able to live without!

Top 10 Closet Essentials for College

  1. Sweaters
  2. Sweatshirts and pullovers
  3. Your favorite blue jeans
  4. Leggings
  5. A couple of dresses – A sassy, flirty dress and a casual t-shirt dress
  6. At least 5 pairs of shoes – tennis shoes, heels, booties, flats, slides/sandals and rain/winter boots
  7. Hats and Scarves – baseball caps, beanies and blanket scarves.
  8. Bralettes – 1 White, 1 Black and 1 of your favorite color
  9. At Least 7 nice shirts/blouses
  10. A few t-shirts

Dressing for fall is my favorite time of the year! I just love the sweaters and cozy scarves that come along with the colder temperatures. Unfortunately, for packing this makes it harder because usually fall clothing is bulkier and takes up more space. But don’t let that intimidate you, that means you just have to pick out your favorite pieces to take with you.

Piko Sweater Top

I started my list with sweaters, because I love a nice cozy sweater! I would say to pack at least 3 or 4 sweaters, two casual sweaters that matches everything and two statement sweater for going out in. My favorite statement sweater is a lace up sweater.

Sherpa Pullover

My next go item is a sweatshirt. On my lazy days, I just grab my sweatshirt and pair it with my leggings and just bum around campus. You can dress up your sweatshirt and pullover collection by adding a Sherpa pullover, these pullovers will be sure to keep you warm during that nice little walk from your dorm to class.

College Essentials

I know you have to have at least one pair of jeans that you just cannot live without. I know I have at least two. I would pack your favorite jeans and some leggings. You will be living in leggings during class and hanging out in the dorm! They are a must have!

Booties

Don’t forget about your best companions, your shoes. You’ll need at least one pair of tennis shoes and maybe a pair of nude heels that will match everything. Be sure to grab your favorite booties, and some slides or sandals to hang around the dorm in. I would also grab a pair of rain boots or winter boots for those wet and cold days this winter.

Scarves and Hats

When it comes to packing accessories, I would just limit it to hats, scarves and bralettes for the fall semester. Hats will eliminate all bad hair days! Pack at least one baseball cap and a neutral colored beanie. Last fall, my blanket scarf saved me! I would recommend packing at least one or two blanket scarves to keep you warm. My other favorite accessory is a bralette. They layer perfectly under any fashion top or sweater. I would recommend having at least one black and one white lace bralette to help add a little touch to your outfits this fall.

Everly Dress

When it comes to fashion tops and dresses, I wouldn’t pack too many. You will need some for those days that you want to dress up or go out with friends. But, you also want to make sure to leave room in your closet for new items that you will want to buy from the local boutiques near campus.

I know we all have our go to t-shirt that we like to lounge in and it’s okay to bring a few of those with you, but keep in mind that your t-shirt collection will expand during college. There’s always t-shirts being given away on campus and during events.

I hope this has helped you with getting ready for the fall semester and makes your transition into the new dorm less stressful. Just remember, you can always come home and visit during weekends and holidays to grab more clothes!

Trend Alert | Women’s Baseball Hats

The baseball hat trend for women is on fire! We are seeing women’s baseball hats everywhere and in many different styles. Ditch the traditional baseball hat! It’s time to pick up a leather or suede baseball hat!

Kaitlyn Bristowe Baseball Hat
A few weeks ago Kaitlyn Bristowe from the Bachelorette posted a picture of herself in a leather baseball hat and I instantly thought to myself “I HAVE to get one of those!”

How to wear your baseball hats:

It’s simple. Hats are perfect for bad hair days or days that you are just running late! Pull your hair back into a low pony, throw on a hat and call it a day!  Some days, you just wake up feeling a little bit trendier than the day before and want to wear a leather or suede hat! Add some soft curls under your hat, put on your favorite color of lipstick and show the day who’s boss!

What to wear with your baseball hats:

Honestly, anything! There aren’t rules to wearing a baseball hat. Dress your baseball hat up or down, either way you will make that hat look good 😉

I have taken my faux leather and faux suede baseball hats and paired them with a few of my favorite outfits.

Simple baseball hats look

The simple look:

You can’t go wrong adding a black suede baseball hat to your hat collection. This hat will match just about anything. I’ve paired it with one of my favorite Z Supply Faux Suede Pocket Tees and Kancan Jeans. To top this outfit off, I added a pair of heeled booties.

The edgy baseball hats look

The CHIC look:

This leather hat will add a little bit of glam to your outfits. I paired my faux leather hat with a  black and floral bomber jacket. To complete this chic look, I paired it with classic Converse shoes.

The comfy baseball hats look

The comfy look:

An easy outfit that never fails: jeans, a graphic tee, a baseball a hat and sneakers. Adding a braid under your hat is always a good option. This casual outfit and hair combo is perfect for those relaxing evenings with your besties!

Fall Fashion Finds Under $50

fall fashion under $50

Another season, another chance to vamp up your wardrobe!

With the official beginning of fall coming in a few short weeks, it’s time to find pieces you’ll want to wear all season long. Thankfully, bringing new life to your closet doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite must-have pieces that are all under $50. Feel free to do a little happy dance.

It’s time to bust out the booties! There are two major factors to consider when buying a new pair of ankle boots: color and comfort. Taupe, black, and brown are three colors that you’ll get a ton of wear out of this season and next.

As the temperatures drop, you’ll need a good pair of jeans in your rotation. KanCan Jeans are not only affordable, but they also fit like a dream! At only $39 for most styles, consider adding a pair of mid-rise and low-rise  skinnies to your denim collection.

Nothing says fall fashion like a Piko top! There are so many colors and styles to choose from at Glik’s, but this burgundy tunic is one of my favorites for autumn.

Is it really even fall if you’re not wearing a vest? My all time favorite quilted vests are from Thread and Supply. The quality of these vests is amazing for the price point and the selection of colors makes it impossible to choose just one!

 It’s not all about bundling up this season, especially at the start. I love this olive green dress from Blu Pepper. The lace up neckline is perfectly on-trend, plus it’s a style steal at only $39.

Lastly, accessories are just as important as your outfit itself. My favorites for fall include CC Beanies, a cute plaid scarf, a lace bralette, and a black choker necklace. Any of of theses pieces will instantly elevate your #ootd.

What to Wear on Valentine’s Day: Ladies’ Night

Flying solo on February 14th? That’s no excuse not to rock a fun Valentine’s Day outfit. After all, a Valentine’s spent with your girlfriends is a guaranteed stress free good time and what could be better than that? Whether your group is treating yourselves to dinner or staying in and attempting that yummy recipe you found on Pinterest, I’ve put together a few outfit ideas to help you dress accordingly.

If you’re going out..

If the plan is to dress up, go out, and be the fiercest single girl squad, this is the outfit to do it in. I love the simplicity of this off the shoulder Ellison top. It shows just the right amount of skin and is something you’ll definitely wear again. Pair this shoulder baring top with light wash KanCan Jeans and ballet flats. Complete your V-day ensemble with oversized stud earrings and a swipe of Too Faced Melted Liquefied Long Wear Lipstick in Bordeaux.

If you’re keeping it casual…

Maybe your girl gang is amped to go bowling or eat your weight in movie theatre popcorn on Valentine’s Day. Either way, you’ll look and feel great in this getup. This plaid shirt by Thread and Supply is seriously perfect. I suggest keeping it comfy with distressed Flying Monkey Jeans, a C.C. Beanie, and your trusty Converse shoes. Add a touch of color to your lips with the Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm in Super Strawberry.

If you’re staying in…

Valentine's Day outfit

If your crew has planned a hot group date with an on-screen Ryan Gosling and an endless amount of junk food, I know just the Valentine’s Day outfit you should wear. Southern Shirt Company tees literally could not be any more comfortable. Plus they have a relaxed fit, so you can eat your little heart out (I’m not judging and neither will your girlfriends). Keep the comfy going with a pair of boyfriend fit Flying Monkey Jeans and Sperry shoes. Make sure your lips stay hydrated with Bobbi Brown Lip Balm.

No matter your plans, enjoy the time you spend with your true soul mates– your girl friends!
