The Halloween Cat.

Hey guys!
Halloween just passed and most college students were pressed to find any costume to make "sexy." Some of the most common costumes for a girl is the bunny and the cat. I decided to be basic and be a cat for Halloween too! However, I DIYed the ears myself and I thought I would share that with you!

What to Wear: Coffee Date

Hey guys!
This fall, I am finding myself constantly stopping at coffee shops and cafes, whether it be to grab an iced coffee to cool down from the lasting heat wave from the summer or stop for an after dinner cappuccino. Here is a cute outfit that I would wear for a coffee date or lunch with your friends or significant other :)

Glasses- Urban Outfitters.

a monochrome aloha.


Here is a spring outfit of the day! All the flowers are in full bloom and its getting so warm out! Today, my friends and I visited our new apartment we will be living in next year and got some delicious drinks (frappucinos and bubble tea ;)) along the way~

Hello Spring :)

Happy Spring Everyone!

It is finally getting warmer, which means it is sundress and shorts weather! This weekend I am going for a trip up to Brooklyn, so here are some of the things I'll be packing:
Aloha Print Shirt Dress- Topshop.
Pink Tank- Abercrombie & Fitch.
Cardigan- Urban Outfitters.
Shorts- American Apparel.
Shoes- OASAP.
Others: Bumble and bumble Pret- a- powder, Benetint by Benefit, 
Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk, Etude House Blush.

**Light gray and beige are a great neutral colors for the spring! However, it was too hard for me to let go of wearing black completely :P I like to wear black shorts over black tights and black shoes in the spring to elongate my legs. Black knee- socks also work! I love the tights have the built- in knee socks too ;)  Instead of wearing a normal sundress, I decided go for a more masculine and slimming shirt dress. Also, The see- through mesh of the pink tank top and sheer sleeves of the cardigan are lingerie inspired.  The mismatched cat & dog shoes are just a whimsical touch to every outfit and a great conversation starter!

Spring means change. You could...
     1. Try to experiment with new fashion styles and trends.
     2. Dye your hair a different color.
     3. Begin eating healthy (just little things like cutting down on sweets or eating more
     4. Go the the gym or run in the nice weather.
     5. Redecorate your room.
     6. Talk to a stranger.

The possibilities are endless! I plan to do everything on the list myself! Maybe even more! Next time I'll post some spring outfits :) -  Lauren <3

Out with the old, in with the new : How I Style Classic Dr. Martens!

Welcome everyone!! To start off the new year of 2014 and my new blog, I thought it would be perfect to style my favorite shoes of 2013 with new clothes I just bought! (I apologize in advance from the poor camera work! It will get better I promise!!)

Dr. Martens: http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=23154354
Ribbon Laces: http://www.dmusastore.com/p-4725-ribbon-lace-8-10-eye-black-ea.aspx
** Dr. Martens are easy to break in if you start wearing fuzzy socks from the very beginning! I wore them all the time this year- to class, shopping, and even business casual presentations :P I put the ribbon laces on them to make them more cute and girly! They have several other lace choices too!

Several Shades of Blue
Baby Blue Sweater:
Free People. http://www.freepeople.com/sale-all-sale/winters-sparkle-pullover/
Navy Skirt: Forever 21.
Navy Ribbon Socks: Abercrombie & Fitch.
Dark Blue Tank Top: Hollister.
 ** I have been seeing many completely blue outfits recently and I wanted to create one after I buying this beautiful off- the- shoulder sweater from Free People :) It kind of reminds me of the anime princesses.

Maison Jules. (still in- stores at Macy's)
Graphic Muscle Tank: Urban Outfitters.
Moto Skirt: Free People. http://www.freepeople.com/moto-slub-knit-mini-skirt/
Black Opaque Tights:
Hue from Macy's.
 ** This outfit is completely monochrome, but I played around with shapes and textures. I love this asymmetrical moto-skirt because it is not so body- hugging that all my chub bursts out, but it still gives a sleek a- line look. This cardigan is also really fun because it has a long chiffon ruffle (good because it covers my butt!). Most sweaters usually have a short peplum or ruffle! Maison Jules is a new, French-inspired Macy's original clothing line, so you should check it out!
Pink, Pearls, & Pompoms
Pink Top:
Anthropologie (sale). 
Leggings: American Apparel. http://store.americanapparel.net/cotton-spandex-jersey-legging_8328
Purse: Kate Spade: Cedar Street Maise. http://www.katespade.com/cedar-street-maise/PXRU4471,en_US,pd.html?dwvar_PXRU4471_color=486&dwvar_PXRU4471_size=UNS&cgid=ks-handbags-cross-body#start=2&cgid=ks-handbags-cross-body
Pompom: Samantha Thavasa.

** When you're are chubby, it is usually better to stick to wearing darker colors. Although that statement is true, it puts me in a pickle because I love pink and other pastel colors.  To solve this dilemma, I wore black in my widest areas (my thighs) and wore a pink sweater! Also, this sweater is a bit oversized while still being tailored, so I gives an illusion that my arms are thinner than they actually are! ;)

Accessories that I wore in these outfits!
Just In One. https://www.facebook.com/justinoneshop
Purple Bobby Pin: Just In One. 
Hair Bow: American Apparel. http://store.americanapparel.net/bow-hair-clip_rsa0509
Nail polishes: Pink from The Face Shop. Glitter in the Air by Deborah Lippmann.
Pink Sapphire Earrings: Tiffany & Co.
Diamond Earrings: Lord & Taylor.

Well that concludes my very first post! I hope you enjoyed reading it :) Btw, I will do many more other way to style Dr. Martens in the future don't worry! - Lauren <3
