Even though I absolutely love fashion (brainstorming outfits, getting dressed every morning, browsing social media and the internet for inspiration, etc.), it’s like anything else—there are certain parts I don’t like so much. As we all know, the #keepingitreal movement on Instagram is resulting in a lot of bloggers and influencers sharing more of their real lives, rather than just the highlight reals and best parts. Well, why should fashion be any different?! Today, I’m leaving all the fun parts in the shadows and shedding some light on the nuisances that go hand-in-hand with being stylish. Let’s have a little rant sesh, shall we? Continue reading “The Most Annoying Parts of Fashion”
When I started college in the fall, I had every intention of maintaining my rather fancy everyday style. My high school’s dress code was a loose “business casual,” and as a result, I became accustomed to dressing nice each day (and actually really enjoyed it—gasp!). I’ve now made it into my second semester of college and have yet to attend classes in my sweatpants…so I guess I’m still doing okay with my goal.

Probably not many (sadly). I had totally forgotten to post these photos back in June after my family returned from vacation in New York City and Toronto, but I wasn’t just going to let them go to waste.
I don’t know about y’all, but I’ve come to associate the fall season with fun weekend getaways (road trips to see the leaves changing, vacation to a pumpkin patch, a beautiful location to cross zip-lining off your bucket list, etc.). I’ve been craving a fall weekend getaway so badly now! Even though a whole post dedicated to Niagara Falls attire would’ve been a bit much (hit me up if you need specific outfit advice), a post with 5 quick travel style tips could be used by anyone. I hope I’ll have to use these tips for myself pretty soon, if you catch my drift. Continue reading “5 Quick Tips for Travel Style”
