Comfortable and cute…

Getting glammed up for class? Ain’t nobody got time for that! Just kidding! There is nothing wrong with getting dolled up for class sometimes but most of the time going for comfort is the easiest option. As a college student having to walk around a huge campus being comfortable and stylish is the way to go at all times. My roomie Sylvia whom you have met before from the post about Oversized sweaters is all about keeping it cute and comfortable for class.

She paired a blue oversized sweater with a striped shirt along with tights and the oh so comfortable UGGs. She doesn’t look like she threw something on and went to class just because she wanted to be comfortable but she put some effort in her outfit. Pairing the striped shirt with this look was added to it better than a simple white shirt. Stripes are always a winner in my book!

So, yes looking cute while remaining comfortable is always a winner but only if it is done without looking you threw anything on! Yay for comfortable and cute!

Dressed to the nines!

We all have had outfits where we glance at ourselves in the mirror and said “Dang! I look good!” and I consider those to be your “Dressed to the nines” outfits. I definitely consider this outfit to be a “Dressed to the nines” look! Mixing multiple colors is possible in outfits as long as it is not over done. In this outfit black, pale pink, and grey were put together. This peplum leather jacket was styled with a blush pink blouse and a killer black and grey pencil skirt. The statement necklace brought the outfit together with the different color gems. The earrings and bracelet went well with the outfit because they pulled in other colors of the outfit. The pale blue heels were definitely a hit with this entire look. So don’t be afraid to mix a few colors together because it can work!

Dressing denim up…

Denim dressed up? Yes, it can totally be done! Denim can be worn in so many ways and you can mix and match it with multiple items in your closet. This simple denim shirt is paired with a fitted knee length polka dot skirt. The skinny belt goes great with the outfit because it enhances the waist line. Yesss for a snatched waist line! LOL. The blue/turquoise and gold jewelry compliments the outfit along with either pair of sassy flats. Try remixing denim your way!
