I’m back again with another favorite item in my closet: my oversized denim jacket. We’ve been seeing this trend for a few months now, but I find myself reaching for it even more since the weather is a little less brutal. I also find myself wondering how I went so long without an oversized denim jacket in my closet!? I’ve always had my fitted one, which is great for certain outfits, but this oversized one works for almost everything.

My Go-To Fashion Pieces

Katie-2

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving break! Can you believe it’s almost December!? I sure can’t. It doesn’t help that I’m still able to wear a sleeveless top with this weather! However, I just returned from my Thanksgiving trip where I traveled to Virginia and Pittsburgh. Let me tell you, I’ve never been so happy to come back to my warm state! I don’t know how I’ll survive if I end up living up north at some point in my life.

Anyway, these photos were taken a few months back, but I’m STILL reaching for three of these items constantly, so I wanted to share them with you. They have become huge staples in my closet, so continue reading if you want to see how I style my baker boy hat, mom jeans, and my backless mule loafers.

5 Ways to Get in the Mood for Fall

For many, changing leaves and comfy sweaters help create a fall mood. However, we Floridians don’t have that luxury. I think I would suffocate if I stepped outside in a comfy sweater in this 80 degree weather. But that doesn’t mean I’m not doing everything I can give myself that giddy autumnal feeling. So, I decided to share 5 ways to get in the mood for fall!

TREND OBSESSION: Denim on Denim

Hi, everyone! It’s definitely been waaay too long since I’ve written a blog post. Between starting my senior of college, working constantly, and moving into a new apartment, my schedule has been so busy. However, it’s officially a new year for me, so things are about to change. That’s right, I’m now 22 years old (insert obligatory Taylor Swift lyrics here). I’ve decided that I’m going to spend this year really focusing on the things I care about and want to pursue career-wise. That means this blog and my YouTube channel. So stayed tuned! I have some really exciting projects lined up. Let’s dive right in!

Summer Travels: Exploring Boston

How is it already August!? I feel like summer has gone by so quickly! (That could also be because I recently got promoted and I’ve been spending almost all of my time at work.) I’m sad to see summer coming to an end, but I’m so happy I was able to squeeze in a few trips. The most recent being my vacation to Boston and Nantucket. My sister, Emily, goes to grad school in Boston, so my dad and I decided to go visit her for a few days. After that, all three of us continued the vacation on the island of Nantucket. I had never been to Boston or Cape Cod, so I was extremely eager to see the cities.

TREND OBSESSION: Culottes

I remember being in elementary school and being obsessed with my army green culottes and my camo shirt with the little monkey on it from Limited Too. I never thought I’d be obsessed with culottes as a 21-year-old, but here I am. Pants are one of my favorite items of clothing because they’re so much fun to style. When I realized culottes were making a comeback I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some. I was planning on picking up a pair of black or white ones so they’d match everything, but when I saw these pink ones from Zara, I knew I had to have them.

The fit is great, and the wide-leg style is ideal in the summer heat. I also adore the kind that have a tie at the waist, since I’m a small girl. And who doesn’t love a good bow? They’re just so girly and fun. I can’t stop wearing them! I paired them with a simple white crop top and I loved the way it looked. How would you style culottes?

Yours truly,

Katie
