This outfit can be taken from day to night, from errands to a lunch date. Breeze through summer in a silk top and up to date denim shorts. Faded patterned shorts have been seen in every collection this summer and these CURRENT/ELLIOTT’s are no exception. The Sea foam color of this J.Crew blouse will easily play up a tan. A nude heel elongates the leg and adds an unexpected pop to this whole look. Rebecca Minkoff has made THE bag of the summer in every color imaginable. Push a cuff up on your arm, grab your bag, and run out the door. Don’t forget to roll your sleeves up for that extra casual touch.

Laid Back Thursday Night

image

 For a laid back Thursday night with friends & drinks at a local campus bar is a must. With the cold weather still upon us in Chicago chunky sweaters are an easy way to stay on point with fashion and not freeze your butt off!

Fashion tip: wear with flat mid-calf boots and a bold necklace.

Hello Weekend, The Perfect Party Dress

image

For most students, Thursday marks the end of the week and the start of the weekend. I always try to plan out my outfits in advance for the weekend ahead.I decided to share with you all one of my weekend outfits I am planning on wearing to a cocktail party.  It’s always a challenge for me to find a weather appropriate dress in the dead of winter. That’s why I knew I had to have this dress from Topshop.

Twist Cut Out Bodycon Bandage Dress,$75,Topshop.com

It was basically love at first sight, what I love about this dress first and for most are the long sleeves.  I hate the feeling of wearing tights under my dress, but there is no need for that since this is long sleeve. The second reason I love this dress, is because the material is thick, this is also a plus in the winter. Just one more reason I won’t freeze my butt off!  Lastly, I love the bold blue color. Don’t be scared to wear bold colors just because its winter.  To top this dress off, I plan to keep it simple with accessories; I don’t want to draw attention away from the simplicity of the dress.  If you’re in the market for a budget friendly cocktail dress, I highly recommend this one!
