10 More Looks To Try This February

This year, I’m vowing to be a little more adventurous with my style. I’ve already shared 10 looks I’ll be trying out for the upcoming month, but truthfully there’s so much pre-spring inspiration out there! Here are ten more looks that are sure to inspire for the upcoming month…

Braided Valentine's Day Stylevia What Olivia Did

I’m all about these delicate fabrics for February—they’re so easy to layer and they look so feminine. Pairing them with a classic black jean always works, and I’d love to throw on a leather jacket over the outfit to add a bit of edge. North Texas isn’t too chilly in February, so a leather jacket would be perfect.

20 Things To Buy From Kate Spade Saturday Right Now

I recently visited the Kate Spade Saturday shop in Houston and fell in love with their product. I’ve pretty familiar with the brand but since I’ve only seen it online, I was always a bit curious about the feel and fit of the pieces. After checking everything out and having to stop myself from trying on every article of clothing in the store, I’ve been curating quite a wish list. So imagine my dismay when I find out that the brand will actually be discontinued later this year! These pieces are probably going to go pretty fast (most of the New Balance collaboration pieces are already gone), so get these while you can…

6 Ways To Elevate Your Winter Wardrobe

Every winter, I always seem to wear the same thing. I mean, you’re going to have to layer up and wear thicker knits, so how creative can you really get? I was really surprised to find that trying different heel heights and silhouettes really elevated my style—just making some simple tweaks here and there made my look a bit more tailored and less bulky. Here are a few pieces that I’m currently loving…

Chic Winter Stylevia Figtny

A chic turtleneck

If you’re a little iffy about scarves or extra layers, a turtleneck is a really easy way to amp up your winter style a bit. I love wearing my oversized turtleneck with my skinny jeans and ankle boots. The silhouette of the sweater is balanced out by the tailored look on the bottom, and I love how I don’t have to add a scarf or wrap. It also looks great with second-day hair pulled up into a messy bun.

Make This: Pom Pom Beanie

Since I go to school in one of the coldest cities in the United States, I always see a lot of different and creative ways to stay warm! Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of pom pom beanies around campus and I loved the look, but all the cutest ones topped $20 or higher. I just couldn’t justify spending that much money on a hat, so I decided to try my hand at making my own! How hard could a beanie really be?


Update: I’ve worn my hat around campus and received a lot of compliments! Everyone was shocked to hear it was handmade (the best DIYs are like that!).

Supplies You’ll Need:

  • Two skeins of Lion’s Brand Unique Harvest Yarn (available here, but significantly cheaper at your local craft store)
  • Size 9 knitting needles (or appropriate gauge for your yarn)
  • Scrap cardboard for your pom pom, or a pom pom maker
  • Tapestry needle

9 Websites To Visit For A Better 2015

I love finding helpful websites that make those daily tasks a bit easier. So if you’re trying to eliminate clutter, get out of debt, save on your groceries or elevate your career, here are a few of my favorite websites on my bookmarks bar!



I’ve been purging my closet recently and listing some of it on Tradesy. Creating a listing is simple and they’ll even mail you everything you need to ship your item! I’ve sold a few items already and the process is a cinch—the money can stay in your Tradesy account to well, trade for something else, or you can choose to have it deposited into your PayPal account! If you’re looking to eliminate some of the clutter and make a few extra bucks, this is a great website!

The Skimm

I’m admittedly not as up-to-date with current events as I’d like to be. The Skimm is a daily e-newsletter with all of the news content you need to stay in-the-know. It’s perfect to read first thing in the morning, during your commute or on your lunch break.

rose-botanical-printvia Rifle Paper Co.

Single or not, I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day. I love a good heart print, red is my favorite color and who doesn’t love candy? It’s also a great time to show your friends and loved ones (not just bae) that you appreciate them in your life. I don’t even know if we have plans or Valentine’s Day (we like to keep it low-key), but I’ll still be dressed for the holiday at work! Here are a few pieces that you would be perfect for February…

What To Buy On Sale From Urban Outfitters Right Now

Urban Outfitters is one of my favorite stores and has some great items on sale on right now. Currently, if you spend 75 dollars, you get 15 dollars off. I obviously could not resist this offer, so I spent my time in class today skipping out on notes and shopping online. Good thing my teacher gives us test reviews!

Here are a few items I bought and a few items I am wishing for…

BDG Waterfall Tunic

I bought this plaid tunic a while ago right when it went on sale. I have worn it so many times! It is perfectly oversized and can be worn with leggings, skinny jeans and wrapped around your waist to make any look a bit more casual.
