Fall Fashion: 10 Pieces I’m Adding to My Wardrobe


1. Faux leather moto jacket: When fall comes around, with its brisk mornings and freezing nights, I know it’s time to break out the outerwear. A faux leather moto jacket is just the piece I need to boost my fashion cred. They’re classy and sassy, and can bring an outfit together like nothing else. I usually go for something in black that’s polished and not costumey.

2. Skater skirts: Nothing goes better with cropped sweaters and knee high socks than skater skirts. They can be casual or dressy, patterned or solid. There are so many varieties of these skirts that are perfect for autumn. I try to look for something with a slightly longer length so I can wear it to school!

3. Infinity scarves: Scarves are some of my favorite accessories during the fall season. They keep me warm and still look stylish. I especially love infinity scarves because they’re cozy and lend a bit of texture to my outfit. Plus, there are so many different ways to wear them! Look for a pattern or color that fits in with your wardrobe!

4. Casual dresses: I love wearing dresses to school all year round, but most of my dresses are either too summery or too fancy. So this year, I am on the hunt for some cute casual dresses I can pair with tights just for school or even for a party! Right now, my eyes are wandering towards dark, fall colors and cute patterns!

5. Plaid blouses: Plaid is such a classic pattern for the fall, but this year, I want to give it a more fashion-y look in my wardrobe, so I’m looking for plaid blouses. They’ll look more polished and runway-esque than a plain ol’ button down!

6. Booties with low heels: I loooove booties, but all the pairs that I own are either completely flat or too high for me to be comfortable in in school. This year, I’m on the hunt for cute booties with a one inch heel, which will let me be comfortable and cute! Bonus points if they’ve got trendy cutouts!

studded taupe booties

7. Plum, eggplant and wine: Plum, eggplant and wine are such rich and classy colors, they’re perfect for fall! It’s easy to find all sorts of pieces in any of these cool, fashion-forward colors, and they’re awesome with florals, stripes and plaids! Look for a piece that fits in with your wardrobe!

eggplant skinny jeans

wine red sweater

8. Blazers: Blazers are a must-have for every single girl out there. They’re polished and stylish, but most importantly, they can even keep you warm. They’re perfect for an internship or interview, even in a bright color or cool print. Blazers are so versatile, and can go from school or work, to a night out! Find a piece that you’re comfortable in and that you can have fun mixing and matching with!

9. Kimonos: Kimonos are so graceful, and can be a great middle layer for the fall. They are fun to wear and are flattering to all body types. Something in dark, fall colors is perfect for the season.

10. Loafers: Loafers are super classy and super cute, not to mention comfortable and easy to rock in school, at an internship, at work or even out on the town. They can say a lot about your personality, and they’re a perfect pair of shoes to wear in the midst of a sea of boots. Look for something that says something special about you.

Back to School: Look #4: Maxi Dress


Hey, everyone! If any of you know me, you know that I love maxi dresses! This super simple back to school outfit features a maxi dress in a style that is perfect for the first week of school! Hope you all enjoy!

Maxi Dress

Here’s your chance to make your favorite summer attire hallway appropriate! Throw on your fave maxi dress, whether it’s patterned or solid, tank or sleeved, and get ready to strut your stuff! Pick something that’s hemmed to about the middle of the top of your foot, that way you won’t be tripping all over it! Also, try to avoid strapless, as they are against most school dress codes and you don’t want to have a mega malfunction!

Shoes

For this outfit, I would stick to a simple pair of metallic gold flat sandals. It will keep your look grounded, but will also give it a bit of shine. I prefer flats because they’re easier to walk around in, but if you prefer a heel, look for something that is relatively low. The idea is to look and feel comfortable and relaxed, so don’t pick a pair of shoes that you just can’t walk in!

Accessories

For this ensemble, I would stick to a few pieces of jewelry, like a gold charm bracelet, gold stud earrings, and a gold statement ring. With those added pieces, you’ll look glam in an understated way, and you won’t look like you’re trying to hard!

Beauty Reviews: Six Products I’m Loving Right Now


Hey, everyone! I’ve been thinking about doing a beauty review for a while now, so here’s a list of six awesome products I’ve been loving this summer!

1. Passion fruit eos lip balm: I love eos lip balm, so when my mom came home with a new flavor, I was super excited. This limited edition passion fruit lip balm smells amazing and moisturizes my lips so well. I bring it with me everywhere and use it all the time. I love it and thinks it’s perfect for summer time. This pack also comes with a Strawberry Sorbet eos lip balm, so you’re getting two for an awesome price! The strawberry flavor is also awesome for summertime, so keep one with your makeup and one in your bag for on the go purposes!

2. Maybelline EyeStudio master precise eyeliner: I love this eyeliner! It’s liquid liner in pen form, so it’s super easy to apply. It glides on so smooth and creates neat lines. I can use it all the time: making fun wings for nights out and lining my lids for low-key days running errands. I love how versatile and easy to use this eyeliner is.

3. Renpure Australian lemon oil high lighter: My hair always gets naturally lighter during the summer, but this spray really helps the process! It’s like an all natural version of Sun In, and I love the way it smells! It even makes my hair softer and lighter without the use of chemicals. I’ve been using this product for years and I absolutely adore it!

4. L’Oreal advanced hair care triple resist ultimate strength solution:
About a year ago, I was really into strengthening my hair so that I could grow it out. I read an article in Seventeen magazine and wrote a list of products to try, but I’ve found that this is the only spray I need. I use it almost as a detangler: I spray it in my hair after the shower, comb it through and then apply my mousse. It has made my hair so much stronger and healthier and I love the way it smells. If I had to recommend one hair product to anyone, it would be this one. My hair grows much faster than it used to and is definitely healthier!

5. Degree invisible solid deodorant in Berry Cool: Okay, I’ll admit it: I’m Greek and often times have terrible BO… Yikes! The only deodorant that can last me through the day is this 48 hour motion sense variety. It’s new and improved and works like a charm! I can go out and go dancing without worrying about smelling like a pig or even reapplying. It comes in so many awesome scents, but I think the Berry Cool is fresh and perfect for summer! This is one product I’ll be keeping around for a looooong time!

6. Passionista Fruit Satin Care Shave Gel: I’ve used plenty of shaving creams and gels, but I definitely hit the jackpot when I picked this up! I’m telling you, since I’ve started using this, I’ve been getting the best shaves I’ve gotten in years. My legs are more moisturized and smoother, and my underarms have never been neater. And the smell is amazing! I now actually look forward to shaving, just because of this amazing gel! And who doesn’t love a clever name like passionista fruit?! Yep, this shave gel’s a keeper!

Back to School: Five Hallway Essentials


Hey, guys! With school right around the corner, I thought I’d share my school necessities with you! Hope you enjoy!

1. Cute backpack: Everyone knows how important your backpack is to your school experience. It honestly can make or break your year. You want something that’s cute and trendy, but also affordable and roomy. I always like to look for something with pockets to hold my cell phone, wallet and emergency kit. I try to look for something with lots of compartments so that I can keep my books organized. When you get your bag, put your books in it right away to make sure it can hold everything. If not, it’s back to the drawing board! It’s better to have one completely functional bag than two or three cute bags full of books! Stay tuned for a guide on this year’s backpack trends!

2. Sweet (and comfy!) kicks: Chances are that, if you’re in high school, there’s going to be some point in the day when you have to sprint from one side of the school to another just to make it to class on time. Let’s be real here: You really don’t want to make that trek in a pair of impossibly high heels or incredibly tight shoes that give you blisters. So opt for something a little bit more comfortable and manageable. Sure, it’s fun to wear heels to school every once in a while, but when you do, stick to a maximum of two or three inches with a platform, and go for flats the rest of the time. You’ll get to class faster, and your feet will thank you. But don’t feel like you have to do sneakers just to stay comfortable! There are so many different kinds of shoes that you could rock while still sparing your feet the trauma. Find a style that you like and feel comfortable in, then rock them in the hallways!

3. Functional and cool watch: At school, it’s always important that you know the time. You need to know how much time you have left on a test? You want to know how much time you have left of this boooring U.S. history lecture? You want to know how much time you have left to finish your forgotten homework? Check. Your. Watch. I can’t tell you how much wearing a watching to school has helped me. The school’s clocks are always breaking or out of sight, so now I can rely on my own handy dandy watch. And watches can be cute! They’re practical and fashionable. What’s better than that?! I like analog watches, but if you can’t read analog: 1. Learn how to. 2. Go for digital. There are so many cute options, the possibilities are endless!

4. Adorable wallet: For me, it’s always important to have a wallet on me. I need to have my school I.D. on me at all times, and some money in case there’s a pizza sale or my friends want to make a quick Starbucks run in between school and extracurricular activities. It’s important to me that my wallets are cute, so (ironically), all of mine have animals on them. I have one with a peacock, two with owls and one with an elephant. They make me smile, and they’re great conversation starters. Look for something that matches your own personal style and personality, but also holds your I.D., your cash, your change and, of course, your Panera card and Starbucks gift card!

5. Super cute makeup bag: I’ll be honest, I totally rely on a makeup bag at school. I use it to hold my emergency kit (blog post coming soon!) and need it to be roomy, but also cute! I like something with a zipper and preferably some compartments. I usually either keep it in my locker or in my backpack, but my friends come to me for things that I keep in there, so I want it to be cute!

#OOTD August 15, 2014


Hey, everyone! It’s been a few months since I last posted an Outfit of the Day, so I figured I’d share today’s outfit with you guys! Hope you all like it as much as I do!

My Outfit

IMG_4066

Today I went to church for the Dormition of the Virgin Mary, so I wore a white Mossimo Supply Co. skater dress from Target and mint Madden Girl heels. This kept it classy, but also a little fun. I accessorized with a studded beige clutch from a local boutique called Eden, my silver monogram necklace, friendship bracelets from camp, a saint bracelet and a blue watch. That added a hint of shine and color to my outfit. I’m really happy with the way this outfit turned out.
