Typical College Gal

Easter weekend, my cousin invited me to Caribbean Day at her school. I knew it was supposed to be cloudy and a little more on the cool side. I was scrambling to find an outfit, but had no luck. I gave up on the idea of wearing jeans because I could not find any suitable shirts, so I looked in my legging drawer. I found these taupe colored leggings and surprising found an oversized t-shirt the same color. The only monochrome looks I have done were all black, so I was a little skeptical about this outfit at first. I decided to pair it with my longline olive bomber jacket because the jacket is not too heavy and it complements the taupe extremely well. I wore my favorite sneakers, my Adidas Superstars and a black choker with my new sunglasses. For a final touch, I tied my XL t-shirt into a knot and made it into a cropped t-shirt. I like the feeling of being somewhat covered, so I only tied it because I had a long jacket overtop. This is how you take basics from your wardrobe and make them look not so basic! Comfy, yet stylish.

Spring in the Winter

70 degree weather in the middle of February?! Hi loves! I could not resist putting on my new pair of boyfriend jeans and cap for this beautiful day in the middle of winter. I wore a ribbed white top, my favorite sneakers of course, and a pink bomber with a pink hat to add color. To add even more color, I wore this olive green purse for the first time. This is such a simple and laid-back look, but this was also a little out of my comfort zone because I’m an “all black everything” type of gal. I felt so girly and I felt this outfit went well with the beautiful weather. I also wore this as I was traveling from Atlantic City to Philly, so it was perfect for the car ride. To make things even better, the jeans and shirt were only $10 and this heavy duty bag was only $14! Such a steal!

Penn’s Landing

Ever wonder what to wear on a hot day spent by the ocean or river? I wore this outfit on a hot day at Penn’s Landing. No matter how hot it is outside, it will always be breezy by a body of water, especially when the sun starts to set. Personally, I find jeans are more comfortable than wearing shorts or a dress. I don’t have to worry about my legs being cold or pulling an accidental “Marilyn Monroe”-one of a woman’s biggest fears when wearing a skirt or dress that the wind will blow it up in the air. The jeans of my choice for this were my mom jeans. These are the most comfortable pair of jeans I own, especially when doing laid back activities. I paired it with a mock turtle neck tank and my favorite sneakers, which is something else to keep in mind.  It may also be a good idea to wrap an oversized shirt or sweater around your waist in case you get cold- I happened to leave mine in the car. No matter where you are going, always think about your comfort. Add your favorite purse and pair of sunnies and you’re good to go!

On a run to the King of Prussia Mall, I wore a ribbed crop top, highwaisted jeans, and sneakers. I like to keep it very simple and comfortable when shopping. High waisted jeans and crop tops are my go to, as you guys already know. They are the perfect combo! These are my favorite jeans- they are stretchy and extremely comfy. They are also the perfect shade of blue!

On a hot summer day, I wore a taupe sundress, a denim shirt, sneakers, and a faux snakeskin textured tote. It was in the high 90s, so I wanted to wear something lightweight and breathable. This thin knit dress was not too tight, so I was extremely comfortable. I love tying shirts around my waist to add my simple style. I chose this denim one because it complements the color of the dress. For shoes, of course I am wearing my Adidas Superstars. These go with literally everything. There are many different shoes you can wear to either dress your your look up or make it more casual. I wore sneakers because I knew I would be doing a lot of walking. To complete the look I added my faux leather snakeskin black tote bag to add one more color to the look and to match the stripes on my sneakers. You guys know I live for contrast- I also love how the black contrasts with the lightly colored dress and denim shirt. Lastly, the real statement piece of this look is the beautiful mosaic street art behind me, which I could not resist having a mini photoshoot in front of.
