Valentine’s Day Favorites

V-Day, Valentine's Day outfit, red blouse

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and I LOVE coming up with festive red and pink outfits, whether they be for date nights or a night out with the girls. I’ve already seen so many cute V-Day looks on Instagram and Pinterest this season! While heart and lip patterned items can be cute, it’s usually difficult for me to find pieces that aren’t tacky, which is why I prefer to stick to classic red and pink clothing. That way you can wear them throughout the year, rather than saving pieces exclusively for February, and you can accessorize with glam V-Day themed jewelry and hair pieces instead. So without further ado, I decided to round up some stylin’ red and pink pieces for you to shop before February 14, as well as sharing my own Valentine inspired outfit from items already in my closet. Just click any of the tiny shoppable photos to be redirected to the store’s website! Continue reading “Valentine’s Day Favorites”

Roaring Into the 20s

2020, new decade, new year's eve, roaring 20s

Happy (almost) New Year! It’s hard to believe we’re already about to start another year AND another decade. How does New Year’s always sneak up on me?! I haven’t spent any time reflecting yet or pondering what goals I want to set for 2020, but I have, of course, had this amazing flapper outfit planned for quite some time now… How could I not rock a flapper outfit on NYE when we’re entering the Roaring 20s again? You’ve probably caught on by now that I have a slight obsession with the fashion of that era. 2020, here we come! Continue reading “Roaring Into the 20s”

2019 Recap: And the Award Goes To…

college life, college student, University of Minnesota, polka dots

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas yesterday, if you celebrated! I always find the day after Christmas to be rather disappointing… After all, the excitement and build-up is gone, and all the presents have been gifted and unwrapped. BUT, to combat the post-Christmas blues, I’m trying my best to keep myself super productive today, starting with publishing my annual New Year’s Eve blog post (albeit, a little early). I always post some sort of yearly recap on Graceful Rags—last year it was an outfit timeline—but this year I wanted to revisit what I did in 2017. That year, I shared stats about my blog, like Most Viewed Post from the Year and Most Commented Post, in the form of a celebrity award show, since the Golden Globes and the Oscars are right around the corner (speaking of, who’s ready to see some crazy and beautiful gowns?!). For 2019, I wanted to host my Blogging Awards again and take a stroll—or should I say, a “scroll”?—down memory lane… So keep scrolling to see some of my best blog posts from 2019!
