The over-the-knee boot is by far one of my favorite trends for the fall and winter seasons. Not only is it a comfortable yet stylish way to dress up any fall outfit, but these boots are also sexy as hell. In the past, I’ve normally stuck to wearing boots that are flat instead of heeled, but this past week, I decided to venture outside my comfort zone and treat myself to a new pair of HEELED over-the-knee boots. I spotted them immediately when they were put out onto the women’s shoe floor at Nordstrom, knowing that they would be the perfect statement piece to plan my going-out outfit around that night. After wearing my bold, yet confident purchase, I was more than happy about my decision and satisfied that I finally added something to my wardrobe that I didn’t already own. These hot boots are perfect for any night out on the town and are guaranteed to make you feel like you CAN run the world (if you didn’t already). You can simply throw them over some leggings or even rock them out with a mini skirt to make the ultimate fashion statement, so check out some of my favorite heeled AND flat over-the-knee boots for a little inspiration to get you started on your fall shopping list!

HAPPY THURSDAY EVERYONE!
When I was in college, the most difficult time I had with dressing myself, aside from those days when I was just heading to class, was when I had plans to hop straight to happy hour from my daytime classes. It was always a challenge to find the perfect outfit that would be comfortable and casual enough for class but trendy and cool enough for the bars and restaurants afterward. After plenty of personal trials in trying to find a suitable outfit, I discovered that the best looks featured neutral colors, comfortable fabrics and silhouettes, and boots…lots of boots. If you share my less-than-confident feelings when dressing for transitional occasions such as this particular one, then I suggest that you take a look at some of my outfit ideas below! Knowing what to wear ahead of time, you will now be able to use the minutes usually spent on picking out an outfit for fitting in some more beauty sleep- don’t we all need a little more snooze time in college?!
Outfit #1: Punk Chic
Outfit #2: Western Casual
Outfit #3: Bohemian Comfort
Outfit #4: Classic Edge

XOXO and Happy Saturday!
Since August is somehow already here, I know that many of you fashionistas will be packing up for and heading back to your college campuses soon! I wish I could join all of you and drive back to UGA for another fun semester as a college kid, but I must face the reality of being an official grown-up and instead live vicariously through my friends still in school. Even though I won’t be packing up my own closet and struggling to find a new and fresh wardrobe for the fall semester, I decided to help all of you ladies out in deciding what items are essential for the various college occasions that you’ll soon be faced with! The first part of this “Back To Campus” series features my top suggestions for what you gals will need during the week when you’re traveling to and enduring through endless hours of class. Finding an outfit that was comfortable and practical while still being chic was something that I always struggled with when getting ready for class in the mornings, so I knew that the focus for my first post in the series needed to touch on this common challenge for students. I hope that you get some shopping inspiration from my suggestions below and make sure to keep an eye out for my next post in the “Back To Campus” series featuring styling ideas for the ALWAYS necessary “classroom to happy hour” outfits!

In light of the dreadful winter weather that I’m quickly getting tired of and the Coachella Music Festival’s setlist release, I figured I’d post a few of my favorite bohemian-themed designs that I created for Fall 2014. Enjoy and feel free to envision yourself being surrounded by music and sunshine while viewing these!
