Simply Suede

Hey fashion lovers, 

When the suede trend started, I was on board right away. I have bought multiple dresses and pants that are faux suede, this dress being one of them. I hope this trend doesn't go away any time soon. 

Outfit details:
Dress: TJ Maxx
Vest: H&M
Shoes: TJ Maxx
Choker: Rue21
Bracelet: unknown- old

This outfit is dressed down, but easily switch to a pair of heels and its a night on the town outfit easily.

Throw- and- Go

Hey fashion lovers, 

Dresses are great because they are so effortlessly chic. Even the days I don't feel like getting dolled up, just throwing on a simple dress, I still look put together with no effort involved. Plus this dress I got from ROSS is so comfortable!

Dress: ROSS
Shoes: ROSS
Choker: Rue21



If you plan on wearing heels all day, opt for a block heel. Its easier to walk in and more comfortable.

#ThrowbackThursday

Hey fashion lovers!

Back in April, SIU *the school I just graduated from*, presented us with the opportunity to attend the last few days of Nashville fashion week. Of course I had took the opportunity to go along with a couple friends. 



As soon as we arrived we made a stop at Omega Apparel, an apparel manufacturing company solely based in the USA.



That night we attended a cocktail reception followed by the last RTW runway show of the week. It was my first time attending a professional fashion show!






The next morning, we attended two educational panels held at the City Winery in Nashville, TN. 





The rest of that day we spent shopping and out to eat. The overall trip was great because it gave me a chance to travel. It made me realize how much I love fashion and what a great feeling it was to be surrounded by people who had that same passion. Hopefully in the future I get a chance to go to New York fashion week! *starts day dreaming*

Key Benefits of Layering

Hey fashion lovers!

It is Friday yet again. This week I started my last semester in college. I will finally be a graduate in May of this year. I am excited yet so nervous. I plan taking some time off of school to work on my career. In a year on so I plan on going to graduate school for a masters in marketing. Until then my main focus is FASHION. Let the outfits continue with #fashionfriday. Fashion tip down below!


This outfit was pretty warm for the day but my hands were FREEZING. 


Fashion tip: Layers are your friend during winter time. You don't have to sacrifice warmth for style. Underneath those tights I had thick leggings on, two pairs of socks on and that knit sweater wasn't just for style. 



Outfit details:
Jacket: Marshalls $20
Knit Sweater: H&M $10 (sale)
Midi Dress: Marshalls
Tights: Target
