Megan’s “Uniform”

I haven’t worn a uniform since my Catholic school days. Ah, the horror. I used to think the plaid skirt was cute and then we moved to Florida and the girls and boys had to wear the same thing: terrible navy shorts that were high-waisted and came down to our knees with a polo. Thank goodness those days are over! Although, I still sort of have an unofficial uniform. I love picking out outfits for other people and styling them in clothes to fit their personalities. Big, bold colors and mixing prints are so fun, but I don’t feel comfortable in that. It doesn’t fit “me”. Yes, I will occasionally dress outside of my comfort zone, but I normally stick to my “uniform”. My “uniform” is a black dress with a leopard coat. It is super simple and easy, yet fashionable. I wear this outfit about two to three times a week!

How To Style Graphic Tees

Although I love dressing up, I love just wearing a simple pair of jeans and a t-shirt. There’s something so easy and comfy about throwing on a t-shirt and calling it a day. I especially love wearing shirts that have a cute saying or design on it during the spring season. Recently, I have been looking into ways of dressing up my go-to style. Graphic tees are actually very versatile. They’re so easy to dress up and turn into a chic outfit for any occasion.

Here are some of my favorite ways to style a simple t-shirt along with some images to inspire your next graphic tee outfit!

1. Pair with a pretty skirt

I love the idea of paring a t-shirt with a flowy skirt. It completely transforms the look of a graphic tee. I feel like this will be my go-to style this spring. It looks like you put a lot of effort into getting ready, when in reality, it’s a quick and easy way to create a cute outfit! It’s also a look that can easily transition from day to night. Wear ballet flats to dress down the look, and at night, throw on some heels or wedges and a jacket for the the perfect night-time look.

Marisa’s Favorite Looks From The 2015 Oscars

The Oscars, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, were once again a hit! Although I love seeing which stars and movies win an award, I love seeing the fashion even more. This year’s red carpet looks certainly did not disappoint!  This year had a theme of neutral, light colors with a hint of sparkle. I loved how all the stars seemed to glow as they glided down the red carpet. It was hard to even narrow down my favorites, because nearly every celebrity looked amazing!

Here are my top favorite looks from Sunday’s 2015 Oscars:

Jennifer Aniston always arrives on the red carpet looking stunning, and this year was no exception. She knows what looks great on her and always manages to look classy and timeless. I love this nude color with somewhat subtle shimmer. This dress is so flattering on her and makes her look fabulous! She looks great without taking any big risks.

11 Pieces Under $50 I’m Definitely Taking To Europe

One of my biggest regrets in college was not taking advantage of a study abroad program. I’ve always wanted to travel and see the world, but working all throughout college to support myself and pay tuition, along with a fear of flying kind of put those dreams to rest. So when my boyfriend’s parents surprised us with a trip to London and Paris this summer, I kind of freaked. Naturally after shedding a few tears over the flight, I immediately started a packing list!

I don’t want to wear too many bright colors or patterns while I’m there, so my wardrobe is mainly going to consist of versatile basics and a few fun patterned dresses. Here are a few options on my packing list…

Classic Wash Denim Jacket, Forever 21 ($32.90) | Global Travels Printed Blouse, Ruche ($42.99)

I wear my denim jacket all. The. Time. I honestly can’t believe how versatile it is. It looks great with black denim, patterned dresses, you name it. I’d love to pair it with this global travels blouse (great name!) or even some of my cropped tees.
