I still can’t contain my excitement! Last friday, I had my first published article in The Daily Helmsman, the University of Memphis newspaper. I wasn’t aware of it until my mom brought it to my attention. (Mom’s have a way of finding out everything.)
I don’t know about you, but I hopped on the colored denim wagon back in highschool. I was made fun of for wearing colored pants so often, and now I see girls rocking them like there is no tomorrow. I now know that I was cool back in highschool, so HA!
I recently added to my collection of colored denim. This weekend was once of those where I saw it, I liked it, I bought. My bank account is sobbing profusely but at least my legs are going to look good. That’s logical, right?
I picked up these from my workplace, FOSSIL. I had been eyeing them since we got them and decided to be adventurous and get them along with a baby blue pair. Now I am on the lookout for colored denim shorts. Look out world, Skeeter is on the prowl.
I feel the need to share a couple of outfits that I have worn this semester. Nothing too fancy, but I enjoy it.
Fashion has changed throughout the years. New trends are being spotted but old ones always making their way back into the limelight. In my opinion, the trends that were popular back in the day are much more intriguing than the new trends that characterize the style of my generation. I Interviewed a few lovely ladies about what their favorite fashion era’s were. I have always thought that I was born in the wrong decade considering that I have always have a slight obsession with the 40’s and 50’s. Whether it’s the music, the fashion, or other types of entertainment, those decades stand out to me against the rest. The women back then were top-notch classy ladies who could juggle being both flirty while remaining modest. From the A-line dresses and skirts to the high-waisted denim paired with a knotted top, those ladies could dress.
I will go ahead and apologize up front that my face is not in this picture. This was taken after a long day of school, work, and a tailgate. Needless to say, my hair was looking a little rough.
Anyways, does anybody else remember when it was frowned upon to wear denim on denim? I do. I remember my mother always telling me that was a “no no” in her book. Now that I’m older, I don’t have to base my decisions on what my mom does or doesn’t like. Well, at least with my taste in clothing I don’t. I actually love wearing denim on denim. It’s a little old-fashioned, but who doesn’t like old trends from time to time. There is one rule to rocking this look though. MAKE SURE THE DENIM PIECES ARE DIFFERENT SHADES! We don’t need a full on denim suit going on here. I’m a fan of dark on bottom and light on top, but feel free to make it your own!
Unlike many of my college peers, I have not fallen into craze of wearing “norts” (Nike shorts) and a big Tshirt. On a regular day basis my outfit consists of a pair of skinny, a cute top, either flats or sandals, and possibly a cardigan or some other type of jacket. Yes, I am that 1% of students that actually puts effort into finding something to wear.. SHOCKER.
Anywho, the other day I was approached by a friend of mine who said, “You always dress so cute everyday. I bet you anything you wouldn’t go a few days wearing what I wear to school”( norts and the big shirts that only show the slightest hint that she has pants on). CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. If I win, she is buying me a week supply of dippin dots from the only place that sells them, the movie theatres.
Looks like these will be my friends for the next few days.
I’m kind of on the fence when it comes to wearing heels. I absolutely love wearing them, but at the same time I’m good with strolling around in my sneakers. Now, normally most girls wear heels to a formal event but when they decide to hit the dance floor, the shoes comes off. Is it really worth it to spend the money to feel glamorous in a pair of heels only to take them off before primetime sassy time? I vote no. I have been on the search to find some funky sneakers to use for my CANDYLAND formal, but also to be worn more than once. My dress is a baby blue Rodarte and I wanted a fresh pair of kicks to spice it up and go along with the playful theme. After almost giving up, and having to be convinced to look around once last time, I found these lovely sparkle sneakers at ALDO for $65. Because of the rainbow sparkle, I can wear them with just about any color and they are crazy comfortable, so that’s and added bonus. My formal is this coming Friday so keep your eyes peeled for the whole look. Operation “Sneaks for Skeet” has been conquered.
