This is just a quick note to say THANK YOU! I just passed one hundred visitors in one month, which is extremely exciting. Who knew so many people would be entertained by what a college girl has to say about fashion? This number is also very humbling. This blog was started as an online fashion diary type thing, where I could vent about trends I didn't like or write about how inspired I was by something. Since then, this has grown to something so much bigger. Don't forget to comment on what you're thinking about my posts! Again, thank you to everyone who has ever visited! Keep coming back for more gorgeous trends and outfits!

Forever and Always

I've always loved scarves. I have a collection of about 20 or so, and every time I see the tempature drop to anywhere in the 50s, I get a chill down my spine just thinking about all the wonderus combinations of clothing and scarves I have awaiting my decision. While I was browsing the local thrift stores and boutiques I came across this perfect fall accessory.
These "circle scarves" are also called infinity or forever scarves since they don't end. This is how I feel about the scarf trend. Whats not to love about them? There is always one to match every outfit, they're cheap and most importantly they keep you warm while still looking fabulous! There aren't many accessories that can claim all that. I love the stripes on this scarf since they add a little something to my outfits since lately I've been wearing lots of black, grey, tan and white with little to no prints. I bought this partially because I'm in love with a friend's scarf that she bought at PacSun. I've wanted it forever, but of course, we couldn't have the same thing, so when I ran into this I knew I had to buy it immediately. The size is perfect for double wrapping and keeping me warm and cozy! If you're looking for something like this, I would recommend this scarf from American Eagle, one just like mine except grey and black from PacSun or my personal favorite from Urban Outfitters (I really need to slow down on scarf purchases!)

Country Lady

Levi's jean jacket; Old Navy tank top; LC by Lauren Conrad skirt; TOMS shoes
When I was naming this post, I couldn't decide whether to call it "Country Lady" or "Downtown Lady". I thought this looked somewhere inbetween, since I'm wearing a beautiful and flowy ash pink skirt with a jean jacket. The jean jacket and the messy braid are the country side with the skirt, tight tank and bow being the downtown side. I've been wanting to try out the side braid with a bow for a while, and today was the day to try it, since my hair wasn't working with me. I had this outfit planned for while, with tights added onto it, but seeing as the seasons refuse to change, I nixed them and rolled up the sleeves of my jacket to stay a little cooler. Watch for the second coming of this skirt later in the fall when I'll add tights and a lightweight sweater!

Side Braided Bow

Don't these lovely ladies look gorgeous with their side braids? I love the girl on the bottom with the bow in her hair!

Whenever I have bad hair days (which thankfully hasn't happened much lately because of the wonderful weather!) I tend to stick with a ponytail. I try to do a bun or a french braid, but halfway through the day I tend to mindlessly pick at it until I give up on trying to keep it look "done". Then I put it in a ponytail so I can twirl it as much as I want. But as soon as I saw this look, I knew it was something I had to try ASAP! The most appealing things about the side braid are that it shows off my long hair (which I always feel a ponytail doesn't accomplish), it looks good the messier it gets (no more redoing it halfway through the day) and you can easily accessorize it by adding some sparkly bobby pins or, my favorite, adding a bow at the end! The bow seems like a perfect fall look, and although it doesn't feel like fall will ever come, I'm still going to pull out my boots, sweaters and bows!

This is my latest look on Trendtation. This site is very similar to LookBook, but the people on Trendtation seem to be a lot kinder when it comes to commenting and rating looks, and who doesn't want their ego boosted with a nice comment? Head on over to see more of my looks!

Flowing in the crisp breeze

As you may have noticed, I have recently changed the design on my blog (yay for upgrades!) and I also added fashion blogs that I follow. These blogs are fabulous for kicking me out of any clothing ruts I'm in at that moment. My morning ritual is to hop onto the computer, check emails, plans for the day, then head to my favorite blogs and see what new outfits they have posted. I am always inspired, even if it isn't something I would normally wear. The inspiration for the skirt on the right is from Cupcakes and Cashmere. Emily was wearing a long, flowy skirt like this one in light pink. I found the skirt she was wearing on Zara, but it was only in tan, olive, or black, and I wasn't a huge fan of those colors. I was looking for something that looked pale and was a combination of more than one color. This skirt seems to have it all. The color is beautiful, but even more beautiful is the price. I'll give you three guesses as to how much this beauty costs. $80? $50? $30?! If I tell you that its from Forever21, does that help? This skirt goes for a mere $19.80. I posted about the incredible prices of Forever21 here, but I can't help but repeat myself-how do they do it?! I plan on buying this as soon as I can, because I definitely can feel fall in the air. I would wear this with a black sweater and unique, strappy sandals or if my feet get cold I'll wear my renewed Uggs (nobody will be able to tell!). The upside to wearing a floor length skirt in the winter is 1. you don't have to shave your legs (that is the one thing that I despise in the summer) and 2. you can double up on warmth by wearing leggings or tights underneath. In summary, there is absolutely no reason not to buy this gorgeous skirt!
