School has officially started which means that it is time to transition from my meeting wardrobe to school wardrobe. Although those two do overlap a little, they are separate… at least in my mind. For my first day of classes I wore my new favorite Target jeans with a LOFT tunic and navy accessories. The weather in Lexington has been absolutely beautiful which made the first day of classes much more tolerable!

Finishing the Race.

It’s that time of year again.This week I start my Senior year of college. Although I am doing everything in my power to pretend the semester isn’t going to start in just one day, I am also ready to power through it to get to the finish line.

As life’s little inside joke to me, I am spending the last two days before school starts on campus working. I can’t complain too much though because that work is on their fashion magazine! The semester hasn’t even started yet and I have already fallen in love with the job and the experiences it is giving me.

The best thing that a new school year brings is fresh new Fall fashion. For now I am still embracing summer colors by mixing and matching some very girly and bright pieces, but I am starting to mix in some Fall trends like this purse that I am in love with! Fringe is absolutely one trend that I will buy into!

Recently I was invited to my first wear white party. If that was not exciting enough, it was actually a scene for a new movie that a friend of a friend is producing! Can you say “hello Lauren’s 5 minutes of fame!”??

While getting ready for this event, the inspiration in my head was a Gossip Girl style Hampton’s party. Of course I couldn’t just stick to the one color allowed, so I added pops of my two favorite summer colors, hot pink and teal. This was just enough to make a statement, but not too much that I would be going against the wishes of the movie director/party host.

My eShakti dress (which happens to be the only white dress I own) was perfect for the occasion. Also, my favorite part of the whole outfit was probably this amazing clutch!

Navy and white is such a classic summer combination! I kept this outfits simple with a stripe tee and purse, and navy shorts. Golds brightened up the outfit, and a merlot hat for a pop of color. There are so many variations of this color combinations, it could take a whole summer to try them all!

This 4th of July I decided to go for a classic All-American look for downtown Lexington’s festival and an evening with family and friends. To me, nothing screams American like vintage Levi’s and a tied shirt. For the holiday I added red Toms and a red bandeau, and hints of blue with a bracelet and purse.

This is definitely an outfit that I would switch up a bit to wear again on a regular day!
