Just as heads up, before New Year hits, get all Calvin Klein Underwear on sale on Shopbop. There are plenty of pairs with Calvin Klein written on the band, and that always makes me think of Back to the Future. So I don’t know about you, but I am getting myself those 😉 Four pairs to be exact!

2015 Fashion Trends To Look Forward To

Before we jump into the 2015 trends (I also have a special Pinterest board dedicated to 2015 trends here), let me tell you what I’ve been up to!

School has been amazing, I love the U, and so proud to be going there. But I can’t wait for the semester to be over, for the year to be over, and for all the new beginnings 2015 will bring. Going back to college at 28 is probably the best decision I made in 2014, and I can’t believe how many amazing people I’ve met and connected with, and how many of them are supportive of my blog. I am so excited that I had so many fun opportunities this year, and I can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store.

Friday morning as I was french pressing my coffee, I pushed down too hard on the handle and burnt my arm with boiling coffee/water. It quickly blistered, as I was running cool water over my right wrist, while using my left hand to text Sam and let him know what just happened. Luckily it didn’t hurt for long, and I was able to write my math final without any problem. I have two more finals on Monday and Tuesday, and a project due on Wednesday, but once it’s all over I will be back with style posts, DIYs and a couple beauty reviews.

As far as my burn goes, I’ve been telling people that when I am stressed I burn myself, or that I slit my wrist, or that I don’t feel safe at home, or that it’s how I put my cigarettes out. One of my coworkers was so sweet to ask if I got a tattoo, I was really flattered she thoughts I was that bad ass. Maybe some day.

Now back to 2015, here are the trends I am really excited for:

Emerald and Leather Pleats

My love for last year’s pantone color of the year grows stronger every fall. And this year it’s no exception. Shopping designer collections at Target is addicting and worth it. I always end up happy with my purchases, no matter what the reviews may say. This emerald button down is from last fall’s Philip Lim collection, and the faux leather skirt is from Macy’s – I bought it after Courtney Kerr fashion show a couple weeks ago.

I accessorized the look with Rebecca Minkoff’s 5 zip mini and these lace and sequin embellished heels.

Some of you may know that yesterday was my Birthday. And, just like that I got myself a pair of Frye boots. I can’t say I always wanted ones, and have been dying to get my hands on them, but at the right place and the right time, well, now I own a pair. And just like that, they walk me now.

Hope you all had a great day!

Love, have fun and Frye!

Urban Gothic

Happy Thursday! Today I put together two gothic inspired outfits for you. One is more precessional and office appropriate, while the second one is sassy and meant for parties, going out and dancing! Both of the outfits feature the same Elle brand dress I got from Megan of Two Birds at our Minneapolis Blogger Sale. Two pairs of shoes: Rampage Heels and Naturalizer flats that I am wearing were given to me by my coworker. I am wearing my husband’s old Timex watch. So the only things that I actually spend my money on were the purses: 3.1 Philip Lim for Target is the large tote bag that I feature a lot in my outfits, and my brand new Rebecca Minkoff mini bag that I got as a Birthday gift for myself from Shopbop.

Enjoy!

Tops n Tees n Butterfly Knees

Summer makes me want to wake up early and stay up late. Summer makes me not want to go to work. Summer is when I wake up and after my morning routine of oil pulling and cup of coffee I sit down and start looking for inspiration. Sometimes it’s in the sun I see rising through the trees on Rhode Island avenue. Sometimes it’s in my herb garden that I have managed to keep alive. Sometimes summer is in the morning breeze and I need a blanket to cover my legs, and a husband’s sweatshirt to wear, because it’s still chilly. Summer flows into me, and I get dressed and get ready for the day. Tops, and tanks, and accessories, everything is there, and everything expresses who I am.
