Biggest Trends Right Now

Some trends tend be coming up again and again in every magazine or on every celebrity! Two of the biggest ones right now seem to be large, statement necklaces and army print, well, anything. And I, personally am a big fan. Beware though: over-sized necklaces don't match with everything...

Large, Statement Necklaces

Army Print
I want camouflage pants so badly!

Winter vs. Summer

Therapy Scarf, Urban Outfitters sweater, Target sweater dress, vintage belt, Steve Madden boots

This California weather really is bipolar! It rained today, but last week I was able to wear sun dresses and tan! This outfit is the perfect combo of winter and summer. I have had this dress for four years but I had only wore it once. With more time, now I know more ways to be able to wear this sweater dress and make it look fashionable. Remember: (almost) anything can be stylish if you just know how to wear it and what to wear it with. ;)

Bits and Pieces

 {Beautiful snowy morning in Ohio}

This past weekend I had my first dance competition and convention of the season! It was so much fun but know I am beyond sore and tired. I have spent the entire day lounging around, dreading school tomorrow. Trying to get the few positive things before school starts, I decided to post a long overdue "Bits and Pieces".

All the Single Ladies!

Valentines Day!! Or for us single ladies, National Single Awareness Day! Just because we're single doesn't mean we can't have a good day too! Get all your girls together for a fun night (as my friends and I are). Give each other presents, or treat yourself! Luckily my parents give me a present on Valentines so I don't feel too lonely... (just kidding, but not about the present ;) ). If you do have a boyfriend, you lucky girl you haha. Whatever you are doing today have fun!!

Another holiday to discuss: (first let me throw out there I am Methodist) yesterday was Ash Wednesday! That means Lent has begun! This year, I have decided to try to give up all sweets and desserts for these 40 days... I know shocking! Wish me luck because I will for sure need it. Those of you who know me know I am obsessed with desserts. Once I start I can't stop and I seem to always be craving something sweet. I hope I can make it through and accomplish this!

Yummy cupcake hearts my friend Fiona make for my friends and I but I can't have any because I gave up sweets! Wow this really is going to be hard but love you FiFi!

Classic LBD

Black and White dress, Steve Madden wedges, Nordstrom bracelets and earrings 

As I promised, pictures from my winter formal. I was so rushed before hand that I didn't have time to take real pictures for my blog! (Trust me I am very, very disappointed about that). For my look, I decided to go with a simple little black dress with pops of coral through my shoes, earrings, and bracelet. Originally I was not too excited about this dance but it ended up being the most fun one! My friends and I truly danced the night away! :)

Valentine's with the Girls!

Valentine's is an amazing, wonderful, special day... for those who have boyfriends. But for the rest of us, it is a yearly reminder: YOUR STILL SINGLE! But who cares!! We are enjoying our time as free independent ladies and the time will come when it is right. This year, spend it with your closest friends and maybe even give them Valentine's presents (or treat yourself!). :)

Fun Friday Favorites

It is currently 12:30 am, and I am forcing my eyes to stay open so I can finish the large piles of homework I have. In desperate need for a little break, I figured what perfect thing to do than to browse online stores for some of my favorite things?! That is right, Fun Friday Favorites strikes again!

On Thursday I was out looking for bright colored shoes to pair with a simple black dress for winter formal (come back Wednesday to see my outfit) and I found the perfect shoes!... just too bad they are way out of price range! But it doesn't hurt to just look right? ;)

Here are the shoes I got!

Super Bowl Sunday

Family and I are an avid football family! Although you wouldn't expect it since my parents have three girls! Since my mom was a 49er cheerleader, we are big niner fans. :) The only way to make yesterday better is if the 49ers won, but besides for that it was a perfect day! Full of lots of food, my best friends, football, dancing, and so much more. The amount of food we had was crazy! We had way too much but it was all delicious!

Eye-Catching Pink

 Free People dress, Forever 21 belt, Jessica Simpson heals, Foreign Exchange clutch 

Birthday parties are always fun. But they're even better with all of your best friends, with amazing food, and a limo doesn't hurt either right?! With absolutely nothing in my closet that excited, I went drove over to Free People, not expecting to find much. Somehow I got so lucky with this dress! It was the only dress left of this style in my favorite color, in my size, and on sale for $40! (originally $118) I wore this to a friend's surprise birthday party last weekend... which seems so long ago! This week completely dragged out and I am so happy to be able to relax and watch a little football this weekend. :) Can't wait for the Superbowl Sunday! Go 49ers!!!
