Did you all catch that Taylor Swift reference? I don’t know about y’all, but I love her latest release. It’s so different from her previous songs, and I’m so excited to hear the whole album when it releases. Today is my first day back in the classroom for the season and I’m so excited. I’m completely in my element when I’m dancing, so I’m excited to have it back in my life pretty much all day everyday! I found this skirt at TJMaxx a couple of days ago and I must say, darling doesn’t even cut it. It completely embodies the hottest trends for fall – suede, button detail, and burnt red. I wanted to keep the other details neutral so the skirt would really pop! You can shop this look and similar looks below. Have a fantastic week friends!

I’ve worn this outfit all over the place the last few weeks. I’ve had tons of questions and compliments on the top and I completely understand why! It’s such a functional piece that can transform from casual to dressy with just a few accessory changes. I’m in the short rows of wearing cute clothes everyday since the fall dance season starts in a week. Once I’m back at the studio full time, it’s athletic clothes all day everyday for me! So, I’m definitely going to make the most of it while I can. On a real note, these shoes are a dream. I’ve already told my mom I going to wear them on my wedding day, whenever that may be lol. They are more comfortable than any of my tennis shoes and look so similar to one of my favorite designer’s loafer pumps. I got them from TJMaxx for a STEAL! Happy Eclipse day everyone, don’t look at the sun!!!

Back To School: Sage Sweater

I’m beyond bummed that I’m not returning to school this fall, but I am hopeful that I’ll be attending graduate school soon! I thought it would be fun to share an outfit that is great for going back to school or simply a cute outfit to wear out and about. While it’s an outfit that is more for cooler weather,  planning for fall is always an exciting time. I made a few purchases from Forever 21 and found this sweater at an INCREDIBLE price. I’m serious. You absolutely cannot beat the deal of this sweater. At any boutique this top would be almost triple the price. I love the sage color and cable knit fabric. I’m also in love with the cut out back. I think it’s very business in the front, party in the back! You’ll definitely love this sweater as much as I do.

The Best Pink Sweater Ever

I know it’s July. I also know that when I took these pictures it was around 98 degrees, but it’s never too early to think about Fall right?! I styled this bubblegum pink Express Sweater that I purchased from Rugged Warehouse with some of my favorite jeans ever from Gap Factory Store. My sweater reminds me so much of this sweater from Express. I also paired them with these Lucky Brand booties that I purchased last season. My necklace is from Jane.com and my earrings are from It’s Fashion Metro. I think this is a great casual outfit for this coming Fall!
