Mix it Up

Today I looked into my closet and felt a little bored. Then I snapped out of it and realized that that’s ridiculous! Ladies (and gents), never get into the mindset that you “have nothing to wear”. Puhleeeeez, you just have to be a little creative!

I found my floral shorts and this striped button-down and thought they would look good together. But to tone down the stripes, I decided to layer on an old cropped blazer to pull everything together.

Grey and Simple

Thrift Style Thursday : Favorite Pick

Well, I just thrifted this and so I don’t think I would consider it my favorite yet, but I do REALLY like this dress so I just HAD to style it for this week. It’s just a simple grey knit dress and I just wanted to keep it just that. Threw on a sweater, tights, and boots because it was cold and added a touch of bling to dress it up a bit. Simply comfortable.

By the way, I had a momentary laps of wanting to chop off my hair today. Phew, didn’t go through with it. 🙂 Instead of making a hair change, I decided to go with the lip color which was an easier adjustment and less of a commitment.

For the Men: How to Buy Clothes for Women

Alright men, this is for you.

A male reader recently asked me to write a post about how to buy clothes for girls. Man, it’s hard enough to buy clothes for yourself let alone another person….let alone a girl!

Ok, here’s my take on the matter.

Please Don’t
1. Buy bottoms. – It’s really hard to find the right fit, so unless you know how to dress your girl to the T, don’t even try.
2. Bright and Outrageous Patterns/Prints – It’s hard to decide what pattern your girl may like
3. Generic gift sets – Shows no thought whatsoever.

Safe Bets:

Sweaters / Cardigans
You can’t go wrong with the size or shape.

1. Forever 21 $22.80 // 2. Lulu’s $63 // 3. Anthropologie $138

Chiffon/Silk  Loose blouses
Easy fit, good fabric, and feminine


1. Forever 21 $13.80 // 2. Old Navy $25  // 3. Ann Taylor $79

Graphic T’s
Comfy, relaxed, and shows creativity!


1. Old Navy $9.97  // 2. Lulu’s $28 // 3. Free People $68

Jewelry

You don’t necessarily need to give her diamonds…

1. Banana Republic $35 // 2. Anthropologie: $48 // 3. J. Crew $150

I hope this was helpful and that you will feel confident when shopping for that special girl of yours. But please, if you decide to go with my advice despite the THOUSANDS of hints she gave you about the #1 thing on her wish list…don’t blame me.

My If-I-Had-A-Boyfriend’s Closet

I had a friend suggest the idea of doing a post about menswear, so here it is.  Being a recent college graduate, it’s been fun seeing my friends’ wardrobes change from their college get-up to professional put-together looks. So here’s to all my male friends in need of a wardrobe shift from casual adolescence, to casual class. Think clean cut, modern, simple, and fitted. There’s nothing like a well-dressed man.

Leave the sweats and college T-shirts for home, boys.
