By this point, it’s likely no surprise that I LOVE the store Francesca’s (I know it’s at least not a surprise to my friends, who like to poke fun about how many Francesca’s items I own—like my favorite skirt in the photo above). Usually Francesca’s is a little pricey for a college student budget, but the store has been having so many great sales recently, I just couldn’t resist doing a little shopping! Today I’m sharing 4 perfect-for-summer items I scored on major sale, 3 of which are still steeply discounted. I’m also breaking down how they fit, what sizes I bought, how to style them, etc. Get your wallets ready, ladies! Continue reading “Francesca’s Try-On Haul”

Cozy and casual, but not without its sparkles. Because duh—whether you’re just chilling with friends and family at home, going blacklight bowling, or attending your city’s most “extra” NYE party, a sparkly outfit to ring in the new year is a must. {Sparkly sweater + favorite skinny jeans + glitzy accessories = outfit perfection.} Continue reading “Strutting Fearlessly Into the New Year”

I’ve always loved the month of August for one reason: the allure of a back-to-school makeover. Whether on a show like “What Not to Wear” or YouTube videos of drastic bedroom redecorating, I enjoy seeing the magic of change and the fruit of forethought brought to fruition. There’s always something so refreshing about “reinventing” yourself or your look to start a new stage in your life (school year or otherwise). While I’ve never had a transformation quite as fantastic as Mia’s in The Princess Diaries, I do give myself a little makeover near the middle of each August not only to make myself feel the most beautiful and confident, but also to have something to look forward to when school may otherwise be…a dread. So without further ado, here awaits ­­­seven easy ideas for some well-deserved self-pampering. Continue reading “Easy, Breezy, Beautiful, Makeover”
