An Inner Winter

Tribal Scarf (Target), Jeans (Hudsons), Boots (Crown Vintage), Earrings (Stein Mart)

Oh, I'm sorry? Is it December? I couldn't hear you over the SUNSHINE. Our first week of December here in Dallas has felt more like summer, than winter. With 80 degree days, what's a girl to wear?! Chunky sweaters and cardigans are clearly not an option, but throw on a tank top and shorts and you will get some looks! This time of year also happens to be hell the most stressful time of the year for us college goers. Horrid finals, late nights, projects, and cram sessions, and in the case of fashion school students...PORTFOLIO PREP. So take a frustrated fashionista + stress + sunshine = a cute way to do casual. Now don't get me wrong, I love my sweats as much as the next couch bum, but there is no reason to feel AND look frumpy! A comfy yet stylish outfit does wonders for a girl's mood. These jeans are my new obsession. They were a steal at Macy's for just $25 on sale, and they fit and feel like a dream. As soft as any pair of baggy sweats! Everyone needs a classic white tee, perfect for pairing with a blazer or graphic scarf to add a blast of color. I think a moment of silence is needed to really take in these boots... They are my everything!!! Maybe it's the Pocahontas left in me, put I am a sucker for anything fringe. Once November hits, I am all boots, all the time. These add a perfect cold weather feel to literally any outfit, and they make swooshy sounds when you walk. Total win/win. 

So in the midst of stress filled days, show yourself the respect you deserve by looking good, and feeling good in return. Good luck on finals y'all! Take a nap, don't kill your family when you get home, and take some time to enjoy a stroll in the sunshine. 

Dress for success.
