I've been going through a wardrobe crisis lately. Okay, maybe that's a little dramatic, but in all honesty, I just haven't been happy with the clothes I own. If you know me at all (or follow me on Instagram) you'll see that I basically wear the same thing all the time--denim jacket, white t-shirt, black pants--or some form of that same outfit. I wanted to spice things up a little, but still stay true to who I am, aka a Basic B*tc#!
I really love meeting bloggers who are trying to do something different or make a change. Today I'm talking with Danielle--she wants to make fashion affordable. I love all of her outfit posts on her blog, and the best part is that I feel like I can totally go out and purchase the same things. Fashion bloggers often forget that we don't all have a fashion budget, so I love Danielle's take on this!
There's always something that I have got to be loving, want to bad in my life, or can't stop using! These are the things that have been keeping all of my attention this past month or so--and I'll admit, I'm pretty obsessed.
My Converse. I got these shoes kind of on a whim when I saw another stylish college girl rocking the edgy look. Thankfully I did because I haven't stopped wearing them. I pair my converse with black skinnys, regular skinnys, or even leggings.
Body Butter. I bought some cheap body cream from CVS a while ago and love spreading on my arms and legs after I hop out of the shower. It is so moisturizing and especially soothing after shaved legs.
My new iPhone 6. You cannot even believe how extactic I was when I found out that I was ready for an upgrade at the time of the iPhone 6 launch. I rushed over to the nearest AT&T store to pick mine up. It truly is an upgrade from my terrible worn in iPhone 5.
My watch. I think I've mentioned my watch before in another favorites post, but I can't help it--I keep bringing it up. I love the way it looks on my arm all big and chunky! And because it's silver AND gold, I can wear it everyday, all the time, with every outfit.
White nail polish. Truthfully, I've always been a black nails girl. I thought that was the only way to look edgy and match whatever outfit you pulled on. But for Halloween I was a skeleton, so I decided to try something new and go white. Boy do it love it! I think this might be my new color, what do you think?
VS Pink Sweater. Now, I actually don't own this item, but I decided to include it anyway because I have been on the hunt nonstop. I saw one at my local mall the other day; however, by the time I was able to get back in there to purchase one they were all sold out! I have literally been obsessing over this sweater.
What have you been thinking about, doing, or loving nonstop? I want to know your current obsession! Let me know in the comment section below.
As I prepare for an internship I find myself preparing my closet as well. Is this a girl thing? Either way, i am definitely enjoying taking the time to spruce up my wardrobe and give it some much needed grown up additions.
Whenever I need help with outfits and fashion pieces I always look to Pinterest. I have an amazing board called Fashion in the Office that I have been pinning to for the last couple months. These outfits have given me inspiration when I am out and about shopping at Charlotte Russe, H&M, Express, etc.
I am truly excited for this new intenship possibility! And I am just as excited to dress the part, get myself all put together, and become a successful woman in the technology field.
These above two images are probably my favorite outfits that I have found on pinterest. I love both of their basic style--totally me! The outfit on left is amazing because of the neutral toned long blazer. I think that this blazer is the kind that's very hard to find; but, when you do, it's absolutely stunning and totally flattering. The second image on the right just really showcases my style when it comes to sweater weather. I love the mustard color for the fall time, and I definitely could see myself pulling together an outfit like this in the morning before a long day at work.
