There is a magnetic and contagious energy that fills the air as 3:00 PM rolls around on a warm Friday afternoon. You look down at your phone, open the weather app, and see sunshine on sunshine on sunshine. You rack your brain to fill your schedule with outdoor activities and sleeveless tanks that have been begging to be worn.

Two weekends ago I had the chance to shop Sewickley (a local Pittsburgh suburb) with my aunt, and I fell in love with basically every store I stepped into. It became very dangerous very fast. I left just a mere two hours later with each hand filled with a bag or two…and a smile on my face. Saturday shopping sprees are the best medicine.

With my new tribal tank in hand, I was excited to style it and #GetGlam. I dressed it up with a grey maxi skirt and balanced the skirt with a lace plunge bralette to connect the boho vibe. This #OOTD is ready for a day or night out. Throw on a light cardigan and push up your sleeves for a night out on the town. My plans this weekend? Dinner out on Friday with the beau at a new restaurant, and this outfit is first on my list!

{Glam} Florals for Spring

{Glam} Florals For Spring

“Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.”

The silver-haired queen and Editor-In-Chief of Runway Magazine may have not approved of this consistent spring trend, but for the rest of us, it’s a easy win.

Florals are one of those trends that’s tried and true, and that never seems to go out of style. Whether your closet is overflowing from over-sized, gregarious and abstract florals or feminine and intricate buds, you can count on your #OOTD to be a hit.

How To Wear: Boyfriend Jeans

It’s finally warm enough to bare arms. The top, a vintage find, was part of a two-piece gown. Too fancy for my closet (black-tie galas are not in my near future), I paired down the feminine feel with a pair of boyfriend jeans. This unlikely pairing makes a chic and effortless look. Next step? Chunky heels to balance out my over-sized denim.

{Glam} Spring Break

{GLAM} What To Wear In Spring

Best White Purse for Spring My Spring Break thus far has been pretty crazy. We’re talking 4 boxes of girl scout cookies, binging on the second season of House of Cards,  final episode of The Bachelor crazy. (Kaitlyn AND Britt? No. No. Nope. Not a fan.) Okay, so maybe my Spring Break isn’t much to talk about. Here in Pittsburgh we may not have the beach, but we did get our first dose of sun and rising temperatures and that is the enough of a break for me.

I paired a new flare royal blue skirt with a layered top. (It may be warmer, but we’re not talking Tulum temps quite yet!) Looking for the perfect piece to transition from fall to winter to spring? The chambray shirt.

Here’s to hoping this spring weather is here to stay!

How To Wear A Varsity Jacket - Fashion Blogger When you think of  sporting a varsity jacket, your mind may travel back to the glory days of John Hugh’s The Breakfast Club and Emilio Estevez’s signature jacket. Maybe you think of your own wins in high school. Or lack thereof. (Major flashbacks to my tennis years. Steffi Graf? A girl could dream.) The real questions is how to bring back the past. How do you bring back the glory days in a fashionable and style-smart way? (Even if you have never played a sport a day in your life!)

I paired my varsity jacket from American Eagle Outfitters with a nautical, color-blocked navy and red dress from Zara. My takeaway? It doesn’t  have to be complicated. Scroll down below for a few tips and tricks!

How To Wear A Varsity Jacket

– Pair it with a pencil skirt or a pair of shorts (shorts over tights? Yes! Give it a go.)

– Your favorite pair of jeans – easy!

– Pair it with an A-line dress. The flounce will be a great contrast to the masculine shape of the jacket.

Dare to bare with no tee – just a sports bra, leggings, and sneakers.

– Accessorize: I’m talking beanies, sneakers, or a backpack. Keep it sporty.

– Or don’t! Mix it up with a bit of glam – perhaps a pair of big earrings or a flirty leather skirt.

Best Coats For Winter

If any coat could serve as the antagonist of my wardrobe it would be this one. From it’s sleek and statuesque frame to it’s loud black and white spotted print, this coat quickly made it’s way up my list of must-have staples for winter. We already know that I am not afraid of an all black #OOTD. Heck, if it wasn’t for exceptionally good sales and holiday gifts, I may only supply myself with a monochromatic uniform for the rest of my life.

Black and white is an ideal fit for a day or night out because it’s just as bright as it is dramatic. I paired this piece with a black jeggings, leather boots, an oversized ruby bag, and a thick, twisted side braid.

Best Coats For Winter

The beauty routine: braided, messy curls. Defined brows. A soft brick red lip. A bit of blush, and long lashes. My coat may be maleficent, but I tried my best to keep my look benevolent.
