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.

Get the Look:

  • T-Shirt: Lemonpop ($5)
  • Leggings: Lemonpop ($10)
  • Longline Bomber Jacket: GoJane ($38)
  • Adidas Superstars: $80

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!

Jacket and Cap: Rainbow

Shirt and Boyfriend Jeans: Lemonpop

img_5818img_5821img_5825I wore this  outfit to class. I wanted to keep it simple, as always, but I also wanted to be a little less casual than usual. I decided to go with an all black outfit- my holy grail. The top is a simple long sleeved V neck and the ankle-length pants are Zara, but I bought them at a local thrift shop. They are slightly high waisted and have a lot of stretch to them, which I love. Also, they are ankle length, but I rolled them up to show off the booties. For a pop of color, I added my longline olive bomber jacket and the most comfortable pair of booties I own. Instead of doing a typical black shoe for this all black look, the tan shoes give more color and interest, and complements the olive jacket very well. Since the weather was descent this day, I rolled my sleeves up a little, which I think looked much better with the rolled up pants.

Get the Look:

Top: This is a basic top which you can find anywhere (H&M, Forever 21, Rainbow). I do not remember where I bought mine. It was probably no more than ($5).

Pants: Zara brand, but purchased at thrift shop ($12)

Longline Bomber Jacket: GoJane ($38)

Camel Booties: Charlotte Russe ($12 on sale)
