School has been in session for a few weeks now, and I am sharing one of my favorite back to school outfits. I often go to the library to do my blog posts and get some focus on my content. I usually see a lot of students at the library, and all I have to say is when you are working or studying for long hours, and need to be focused, you want to be comfortable. I am usually dressed my most comfortable when I go to the library (thank you for the relaxed dress code) because I am usually there for eight hours (or more).
When you are a student you will want to dress the most comfortable because you have to walk around campus, walk from class to class, sit for long hours and maybe spend the entire day at school. This also doesn’t include any library time to study and of course commuting if you aren’t living on campus. With all that, comfort has to be essential.
One of my favorite comfortable outfits for back to school is definitely a t-shirt dress. I love this dress because it is under $20, it is so comfortable and stylish. The pinkish maroon color is perfect for the upcoming fall season and is a perfect transitioning dress from summer to fall.
When the temperatures start to drop you can also wear this t-shirt dress with a nice pair of leggings and style with some mules or boots. When you are running around campus, in between classes and studying long hours this is the perfect dress to be comfortable and yet stylish. You will also get a lot of wear because you can wear it on the weekends for errands or brunch.
Are you planning on wearing the t-shirt dress trend this fall? How do you style?
Jacket: Nordstrom Rack – BCBGeneration sold out in army green but available in navy blue / Jeans: Gap / Shoes: Old, similar here
I am completely in love with this army green jacket. I saw it at Nordstrom Rack and knew I had to have it, it also comes in navy blue which is such a great color and would match perfectly with jeans. This jacket is such a statement jacket and I love it paired with black heels. I would wear this jacket on girls night our or date night for a wonderful impact. It is under $75, and the green color is true army green. I wore the jacket both open, so you can see the cascading affect, as well as closed so you can see the statement it brings with the belt across the waist. Absolutely beautiful. This jacket is more fancy than your typical army green jacket and Nordstrom rack has a few casual options that I like here and here. If you are looking for a statement jacket, this is the jacket to own. This week it is in the 90s but it is going to cool down here in New York City again starting Wednesday and I can’t wait to wear this jacket when the cooler weather arrives.
I hope everyone had a terrific weekend. We just relaxed at home and I got my hair straightened for the summer. I am going to do a YouTube video on my hair straightening experience for you guys. It has been 9 months since I got my hair chemically straightened, and I am going to go over the pros and cons and the experience and so you can see the results. It makes managing your hair in the summer so much easier.
Hope everyone is having a great start to their week. Happy Monday! We are going to play with water tables today, woohoo.
Shirt: Nordstrom / Jeans: Gap
I am loving tie knot tee’s lately. They are so stylish and my favorite way is to wear them with jeans, or shorts when the weather gets warmer. I am loving this one from Nordstrom rack, linked above. It is a bit sheer and I am wearing it with a tank underneath, but it is light weight and perfect for summer. The green is a light green, but I love that I could pair with a variety of accessories like darker greens, oranges, whites and grays. It also comes in a variety of colors and fits true to size, it is a steal for under $20.
It is still cool here in NYC, but next week it should start getting into the 80s and starting to really feel like summer. Does anyone have wonderful summer plans? We are trying to plan our vacations now for the summer.
Kimono: Forever21 sold out similar here and here / Jeans: Banana Republic / Shoes: old similar here / Bag: Anne Klein
Festival season is upon us and that means festival season fashion is going to be all the rage. My favorite part about festival season fashion is how creative you can get with your style. This includes bright colors, fun prints, unique sunglasses, cut off shorts and fun jewelry. It is a time you can have your personality really stand out. I am not going to Coachella this weekend, but I do have a few concerts to attend in NYC this summer and I love how you can dress so fun for the occasion.
I wanted to share with you a fun Kimono I got from Forever21. I love Forever21 because you can find so many trendy items for such a great budget friendly price. I have worn this Kimono quite a few times including to Epcot when we went to Disney World in February. I love the fringe and the bright colors of this Kimono. I can see it being worn with shorts, some gladiator sandals and a fun hat if you are planning on hitting any of the festivals this year. Are you going to any festivals or concerts this season? What are you wearing to them?

I love spring scarves. They are so light weight, they come in so many fun spring prints to spice up your wardrobe and keep you warm on those chilly spring days without making you too hot. There are so many fun spring accessories but this one is one of my favorite. You can wear spring scarves with a dress, denim on denim, with a spring trench coat, and even with leggings or after working out to spice up your casual outfit. I have styled spring scarves in so many different styles and they have all looked wonderful. I hope you are adding spring scarves to your wardrobe, I feel it is a must!
