Embrace your ever-changing style

Happy Fri-yay! Excited for the weekend??

Im off today so I will be catching up with some friends from college, which I am excited about! Today, I am showcasing my Caslon sweatshirt dress!

20170913_100807I paired a red lip and red TOMS with the dress to give the charcoal gray a pop of color.

Ive not so secretly been obsessing over this dress ever since I saw it at Nordstrom, where I work in case ya didnt know. 🙂

20170913_100819(0)It was $79 when i first saw it which is pricey for me. Im a bargain shopper for sure.

So I patiently waited almost 2 weeks for it to go on sale. So the sale price in addition to my employee discount got me this amazing dress for only $27. A steal!!

What I love about fashion and style in particular is that you can definitely see how your style has progressed and changed over the years. As you get older and go through different stages in life your style changes and matures.

20170913_100834Im saying this because honestly a few years ago I would never have purchased and definitely not worn a dress like this. Growing up, my idea of fashion was always having to dress up and look super feminine and cute in order to be stylish.

Now I’ve learned that you can dress semi-casual or completely casual and still look flawless and fashionable. Im glad that I learned this in my late teen years because now at 22 I feel more stylish and beautiful than ever.

Remember fashion is ever changing and you can always reinvent your style. As long as you feel beautiful, wear what you want and wear what you love.

Boots, TOMS, and Chucks! Oh my!

Wearing chic and unique shoes is a great way to add a touch of personality to your outfits.shoes2

Today I am giving you a look into my world of stylish, colorful, and sparkly shoes. I love all of the shoes in my closet, but a few of my favorites are my boots, TOMS, and Chucks.

For those of you who don’t know, Chuck Taylor is considered to be the face of the Converse brand, so “Chucks” is a nickname for the shoes. For all of you who did know, give yourself a pat on the back.

Now let’s take a look at my

My Brown, Sparkly Boots!

unnamed        2

Last year, I bought these boots for $30 from Delia’s. When I was younger, I called boots like this “rough girl boots” because they looked less girly and more tomboyish. I really love the sparkles lining the backs of the boots and at the toe. These boots pair well with an oversized sweater and skinny jeans and they are perfect for the fall weather.

My Cowboy Boots!

8

I’ve always wanted cowboy boots because they are super cute, stylish, and out of the norm. They are brown, leather, and have a small heel. Even with a heel, they are still very comfortable to walk around in. My lovely boyfriend purchased them for me for $75 at Bakers. My cowboy boots look really nice with a summer dress or with jeans and a button up.

My Glitter TOMS!

5

My black, glitter TOMS look gorgeous when the sun hits them because they sparkle and shimmer. These TOMS can be dressed up or down and that’s why I love them. They were bought at a quaint shop in downtown Frederick called Velvet Lounge.

They were on sale for $20 and that was a great deal because TOMS aren’t cheap! TOMS is an awesome brand because buying a product from them helps raise money for someone less fortunate. The brand’s motto is “With every product you purchase, TOMS will help a person in need. One for One.”

My Rainbow Chucks!

43

I love these Converses. They have multiple, rainbow tongues and they have rainbow shoe laces. I’ve had them for about five years now and they still look pretty good.

One reason why I love Chucks is because when they get old and weathered they still look stylish. I got these from Journeys, but I don’t remember the price. If you look on Journeys’ site, they may still have them!

I hope you enjoyed this little look into my shoe world. Now go out and teach someone the word Chucks!
