Taste The Rainbow

Yes, I did feel like a box of Skittles candy in this outfit today, and I loved every bit of it. I have been trying to branch out with my style and try out new things including different patterned sweaters and graphic tees. I found this cute rainbow striped sweater at Forever 21. I have steered away from Forever 21 for quite some time now because I wasn't loving the items they were selling and the quality wasn't the best either. But recently they have come out with some awesome and very affordable items! This look was very inspired by a blogger named Megan Ellaby who has some amazing outfits on her website which is meganellaby.com.

I love her style because it's very quirky and different from anything else I've seen out there. To give the sweater a more edgy vibe, I added mom jeans. These jeans reminded me a lot of a pair of mom jeans I found at Madewell. However these jeans were $30 instead of over $100! I also purchased these booties from Charlotte Russe which were on sale for $20! These places are also great for when you need to purchase gifts for friends and family during the holiday season.

Shining in Chiffon

I have a bit of a girly outfit in today's look. This gorgeous blush pink sweater with chiffon bows is probably one of the softest sweaters I own and it was only $20 from TJ Maxx! I feel like I'm always raving about this place but you can find some amazing things here for such good prices. Definitely a college girl friendly store. I typically don't wear light colors in the Fall and Winter season but I thought this blush sweater would go perfect with some white jeans. To make it more appropriate for the cold, I wore these over the knee boots from Charlotte Russe. This outfit is perfect for grabbing lunch with some friends and can even be worn to school because it's so comfortable and cozy too.

Let me know if you all would like a Black Friday shopping guide these year or a Holiday gift guide, I would love to scout out some good deals for you guys!

Orange Overalls

Okay, so the weather in the D.C. area has taken a 180 and it's now freezing cold here! But I'm actually loving this weather because now I'm able to layer up in comfy clothing and feel cozy and warm. I have especially loved layering with turtle neck sweaters, and the awesome thing is that you can find these sweaters just about anywhere including thrift stores which is where I found mine. But the main part of this look is this gorgeous overall dress from Free People. I have never been one to go for something like this but it was such a fun and different look for me to try out. I got this dress on sale from Macy's when it is still full price on the Free People website. I highly recommend that you guys go onto Macy's or Belk's website if you love Free People but want to score a good deal on their items. I have purchased most of their items from either Macy's, Bloomingdales or TJ Maxx because it is always way more affordable that way.

To make this look a bit more trendy, I decided to wear my trusty over the knee boots and this Cabby/Conductor/Baker Boy hat (whatever you want to call it LOL). These hats have been just about everywhere recently and I think it adds a fun edge to your look. Of course to make this look a bit more modest (and also warmer), I wore these black stockings which can be found just about anywhere. I did feel a bit out of my comfort zone with this outfit just because I hadn't ever tried anything like this before, but I'm so glad I did. Guys, don't ever be afraid to try out something new just because it is a bit out of your comfort zone. You'll be surprised of how it turns out in the end. To top it all off, I wore my Tory Burch purse and my favorite ring set also from Free People.

I would love for you all to let me know what you think of this outfit in the comment section below!
