No White After Labor Day?

img_0116img_0173img_0141img_0149img_0155

Contrary to popular belief, wearing white after Labor Day is NOT some kind of fashion faux pas. I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever makes me feel happy and confident, and white is one of my FAV colors. So just because there’s some crazy myth that wearing white after Labor Day is a fashion don’t, doesn’t mean that I’ll stop wearing it!

As you know, I love everything nude. Although in a prior post I said that I’d be incorporating more colors, doesn’t mean that I’ll be giving up my go-to!

So, today I wore a white American Apparel bodysuit with a pair of white high rise Abercrombie & Fitch jeans. You might be wondering if I wasn’t freezing my butt off since it’s the middle of fall in NYC. However, we’ve been experiencing very odd weather with temperatures varying from January to June within a matter of days. So, today’s temperature was definitely on the milder side of the spectrum. But, to keep warm, I wore a chunky Forever 21 sweater. Chunky sweaters are must-haves for fall and winter months. You can spice them up anyway you’d like; with everything from leggings, jeans, skirts/shorts, or to even be worn as dresses!

I hope you guys loved this look as much as I do!

Here’s to The End of Junior Year!

As the spring semester at FIT is winding down, I’m taking this time to reflect. My third year of college has been a serious struggle! I had so many personal issues, that my studies were affected. Although I didn’t fail any classes, or completely fall of track, this school year was definitely a lot harder than usual. The issues I faced, made focusing in school to be an extremely difficult task. But my determination helped me remain focused. Now that the semester is almost over, I couldn’t be happier. Although every college student is excited for summer recess, I’m excited that I’ve gotten my ish together! And I know that my senior year is going to be much better!

So, in honor of my reflection of the 2015-2016 school year, here are some photos from my Back to School post from the beginning of the year!

Faux Fur

For those of you that followed my previous blog, you know that I’ve posted this coat before. However, I’ve decided to post it on this new site because it’s one of my most liked posts and I still get lots of questions about it.. During fall 2014, I was looking everywhere for the perfect faux fur coat. My job, Abercrombie & Fitch had one but I wasn’t crazy about it. However, Abercrombie kids had THE most perfect faux fur coat, and yes, IT FIT! It was the exact color and fit that I’ve been looking for, and the price was even more amazing! Check out the outfit deets below!

Nude

Just like a lot of other New Yorkers, black is my go-to. However, I’ve been trying to add more color to my wardrobe. I’m not a fan of prints or bright colors, so when I do add color, I prefer to stick to earth tones and neutrals. To me, neutrals look a lot classier and more expensive than bright colors. (Believe it or not this outfit is very affordable)
