Rain, Rain Go Away

Coat: Made by me, but fabric is Amy Butler

Maryville has had some really crappy weather lately. The other day it was 50 degrees and sunny then around 3 o'clock it dropped to 16 degrees and started flurrying. The number of outfit changes I have gone through this week has been insane. I feel awful for my roommate because she has to look at a huge pile of clothes on my desk and my over-flooding laundry basket. I think she is a saint right now haha!
Okay, but this is one of my favorite coats. I made it my last year of high school and I'm still just as much obsessed with it.  It's lined with a cool lime green material (pictured in top left photo) and the fabric is made by Amy Butler. It is such a groovy coat, every time I slip it on I think I'm Carrie Bradshaw in "The Carrie Diaries". In this photo I paired it with some classic brown riding boots and tan leggings that I think I picked up at Marshall's. It works great though with dark jeans and pink rain boots, which is how I styled it earlier this week.
Until next time--

Walking on the Wild Side

Top Two: BCBGMaxazria

Middle Two: Michael Kors

Bottom Two: Ralph Lauren
With New York fashion week coming to an end, I wanted to put together some of my favorite looks from the shows. Fall 2015 trends have not seemed to dissapoint with the excessive use of fur, chocolate browns, and leather. Each designer seems to have incorporated a western-tomboy look into their collections. Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors had women wearing wide legged pants and ties, and BCBGMaxazria took metal mixed leather to a new level. It seemed like most designers were trying to create a very rough but classic collection. Most pieces that I saw were less couture and costumey than usual. I cannot wait to see what other designers are going to add to this western jungle. 

Until next time--

In to the Woods

Dress, Socks, and Slip: Free People, Hat: Polo Ralph Lauren, Boots: Nine West

Every once in a while, life gets difficult. We feel tied to down to our responsibilities and the stress of others gets put on to our backs. For me and most college students this happens often (well, everyday for me at least).But, between the mountain high piles of homework and daily responsibilities, we have to learn how to breathe and cut the string that attaches us from our struggles. My favorite craving recently has been large dresses that make it seem like we are weightless. This Free People dress is perfect for the moments when all you want to do is twirl like your in a music video and forget all your responsibilities. It is a lightweight fabric makes it easy to feel limitless and free. Its also great for hiding that freshman 5 you might have gained first semester, like me..... Anyways, the detailing of the dress is amazing. The pictures I use don't capture the clever V- neck neckline and the elastic around the upper arms. However, the dress is very see-through so I paired it with a white lace slip from Free People as well which gave it more of a feminine look. I highly recommend the slip to anyone because it is so versatile. On busy days I'll pair it with a large sweater to create a cozy, laid back look. It seriously goes with everything.
Until next time--
