Ross- Take a Peek!

November 10, 2015

As we mentioned before, we love Marshall’s and TJ Maxx but somehow Ross seems to be at the back of peoples’ minds or even completely forgotten when it comes to buying nice things for great prices. My sister, Kathryn, doesn’t frequent Ross near as much as I do, but it doesn’t mean they don’t have as much to offer as Marshalls or TJ Maxx.

I will say I typically don’t shop at Ross for clothes, although I tend to glance at the clearance section while I’m there and I have found some super nice stuff like Michael Kors jeans for $20 and a Marc New York jacket for $25. It’s always a good idea to quickly look just to see what they have. For instance, I even found several pairs of J Brand jeans there tucked in the clearance racks. Hopefully, this post will inspire you to give Ross another chance because you never know what deals are hiding there! Continue Reading

Sooo currently in Florida we are experiencing a record setting heat wave. Sweating like we’re in the middle of July is putting a stop to any of our cold weather ensemble ideas. Cozy sweaters, scarves, and coats are probablyyy going to be hanging out in our closets for longer then expected this year.

Even though we can’t currently wear any cold weather appropriate clothes, doesn’t mean we still don’t dress for the season. Fall in Florida mostly consists of incorporating Autumn colors in a wardrobe appropriate for 90 degree Novembers.

//Dressing for a Job Interview//

November 6, 2015

So, since I have a job interview coming up for a job that I’m super excited for, I decided to write a post about how to dress for any job interview in case there are any readers out there who panic when they have to decide on what to wear.

Preparing mentally for an interview is stressful enough, so hopefully this will help take some stress away from the physical preparation! One of the first things my sister told me about dressing for my very first job interview was that you’d rather over dress than be too casual.

Now, obviously I’m not advising anyone to wear a ball gown when going on an interview, but you should try to find something that is classy and professional all while being comfortable because you want to make sure you can be yourself too! Continue Reading


Fashion without the Fortune’s Guide to

Forever 21 is one of those stores that has a bad rap. I often hear that people say that they think the quality isn’t there, the clothes are too young, or that shopping the store is overwhelming.

Hooded Plaid Poncho


V-neck Cutout Sweater





And on one hand I can agree, shopping in a Forever 21 store can be overwhelming! I personally am not a huge fan of going into the store-I never seem to find much. But to be honest Forever 21 online is probably my favorite place to shop online. Yes, you read that right FAVORITE!


While I can stumble into a Forever 21 store and find nothing, I can peruse their website and load my cart up with 50 different pieces. There are so many different things to look at that I can sit there for farrrr too long going through all the different categories, accessories, sale items, etc.

You can easily take an outfit from day to night with a few simple swaps!


I love this classic ensemb. a striped off the shoulder top, some boyfriend jeans, and a black bootie. Throw on a red lip and you’re golden! It is perfect for running errands, brunching with friends, doing my most beloved hobby: shopping!


If I’m wearing this throughout the day and don’t have time to change for a night out, I can easily make a few swaps to kick it up a notch without having to style a whole other ensemb.
