Sometimes I can get grumpy when it comes to school, especially on Friday’s, but today I woke up telling myself to be positive because today was going to be a great day. Then I got to school. As I was walking up to the bus stop I gracefully slipped on a patch of black ice, landing on my knee in a split while the 50 people waiting for the bus stared blankly at me. To top it off I had my hand in the pocket of my camo jacket, and as I tried to catch myself I ripped the pocket. My good mood was no where to be found!
Luckily I had a great meeting and lunch with my mom this afternoon to lighten the mood. Plus it was absolutely beautiful outside!
Because it was so nice I was finally able to take off the big coat and switch it out for my now ripped camo jacket. There was still a bit of a chill in the air in the morning, so I layered smarty. With the jacket I wore a long off white open cardigan and chambray button down. I really loved how this outfit turned out, good mood or not!
Wearing heels to a seven hour shift: bad idea. Mixing cheetah print and polka dots: best idea ever! At least I think so.
Right now at LOFT all of our mannequins are dressed in neutrals with denims and all shades of blue. That may or may not have influenced my latest outfit purchase. After a shift last week (where I dressed mannequins all day) my managers had some fun styling me, and this was the favorite look so I decided to take it home. Both pieces will easily convert into tons of other outfits, but there is something very chic about this monochromatic look. Originally I planned to wear cheetah print flats with a black and gold necklace. I couldn’t resist rocking my bow tie while I had the opportunity though. These pants are Marissa ankle with a fun side zipper. Mostly I bought the pants because they are like two sizes smaller than I used to wear… Go Zumba!
This outfit was a little casual for everything I did today, but it has been suck in my head for a while now, so since we finally hit above freezing today was the perfect day. Along with a day full of classes I went to Ash Wednesday mass with a friend (the ashes totally came off by themselves…) and attended the MOUR writers meeting to plan the May issue. MOUR turns 1 in May, how crazy is that??
But back to the outfit… I was going for a more rock/edgy look with this outfit. Graphic tees will be very popular this year, especially as a layering tool. Today I layered my “ROCK STYLE” Zara tee with a Bluetique plaid button down and LOFT infinity scarf. An edgy look requires lots of jewelry, so I piled on some chunky bracelets and wore my key necklace. What I love most about this outfit is that the colors are very girly, but the look is “Rock Style.”
Just in case you live under a rock, the Oscars were last night! This means that best best and last red carpet of the season has come and gone. Unfortunately I was so excited about the preshow that I forgot to record the Oscars and have only seen what is available on YouTube. What I did see though was some of the most beautiful fashion that I have ever seen. There was nothing over the top or extravagant (except many Pharell’s shorts, weird.), but countless timeless looks.
Lupita has officially taken over best dressed lists everywhere because she is flawless. My favorite description of her last night was “Lupitarella” because she absolutely looked like a princess. J Law. is back on top of my best dressed list. I think she always look beautiful, but sometimes her outfits aren’t my favorite. This dress was the perfect choice for her!
I don’t think the these two beautiful hosts of Fashion Police get enough credit for their fashion choices so I am voting both of them best dressed. Kelly Osbourne did not get to wear this dress for very long, but it still made an impact on me. And Giuliana Rancic wore my future wedding dress. How rude?!
One of my favorite places in the world is behind the scenes of a photo shoot. It’s so amazing to see how things go from craziness (like the picture above) to the perfection that fashion shoots always are. After attending a photo shoot with Lexington Fashion Collaborative I was able to write about the experience for MOUR’s blog. It took a few drafts, but I think I finally captured what happens behind the scenes of a photo shoot! Check the article out HERE.
