Wednesday Wishlist

0 9 . 1 0 . 1 4(4)Oof! With spring coming around the corner (so I hope but there is supposed to be snow in the Tri-State again on Friday) I just can’t help but feel super excited.

Working at Anthropologie has definitely put me in the mood to buy a ton of spring-y stuff. Here is just a few of the things I have on my wishlist!

OOTD: Camo-Love

photo(33)Sadly, I still don’t have my camera or a partner to take my pictures…so I will have to make due with what I have! I am a college student after all. Now that spring has arrived, the weather is quite temperamental.  The best thing to have in spring is a thin jacket. I got my camo jacket from Gap. I do work there, so it’s best I represent the company and wear them to work! My bag is from Francesca’s collection,which was 30% (yay savings!). Do you like the camo look? What would you pair with it?

Nail Break!

With all the finals, interviews, and endless days studying, it’s nice to just stop and take a breather. What better way to relax than painting your nails?

My dear cousin spoils me and gives me manicures so this is all her work! I just sat back and enjoyed the pampering! She used Butter London’s “Fiver”. It’s a beautiful mint. I wanted to snag this color myself but it’s sold out on Sephora. You might be able to find the color elsewhere!

What do you think of this beautiful spring color?

Tickled Pink

Tickle Me Pink

Spring is in full swing! The weather is finally bearable and breezy and not frigid and frozen.  When I was a younger girl, I despised the color pink, it was too girly for me.  Now that I am big and grown, I absolutely love it.  It can be soft or shocking, it adds a great pop of color to any outfit, and honestly it’s very springy.  My favorite way of wearing pink is with a contrasting color or in a different shade of pink.  I gathered some cute pink things.  My absolute faves are the Jacquard Shorts from Gap and the strappy pink dress from Zara.  They can both be dressed up or down, which leads it to be versatile and honestly, a 2-in-1 deal.
Pink is also the perfect color to transition into summer with.  I don’t know why I had despised it so much! I still don’t have much pink in my wardrobe, but I am hoping to change that! Do you like pink for spring and summer? How do you wear your pink? Needless to say, I am feeling a little tickled pink.

Spring = New Beginnings

I’ve been absent for a little and for that, I am sorry. Ever since I came back from Spring Break I have been drowned in tests, midterms, projects, and work. I’m glad to be a busy body though! I’ve been non-stop going to interviews as well. Hopefully I get a call soon!

Registration begins soon at my university and I am taking on a new challenge! I want to get a Makeup Artistry Certification. I am not that great of a makeup person but I want to learn to be able to do my own makeup even better. Yay!

Mint Condition

With spring finally arriving, I have always found myself obsessing over the color mint. It’s such a beautiful hue of green/blue. It is a beautiful transition from all the darker hues we have in fall and winter.  You can pair it with a variety of colors such as pink, a darker blue, or white.

Mint Love
I never seem to tire of this color. It’s such a pretty shade and I find it looks great with gold and silver accessories. It’s very versatile and you can find the colors in any item from shoes to jeans to purses.
Outfit Ideas: Mint Edition

I hope to stock up on all things minty! Do you like mint?What you pair with it?

Sunflower Sailors?

Stripes and Florals

Prints have yet to slow down in the trend forecasting; two of the big ones this upcoming spring are the ever present stripe and flower power. I must admit, florals would make me cringe, back in the day. They were oddly reminiscent of old textured sofas with those ugly, dull flowers prints that looked as if they were wilting away in front of your eyes.

But alas! We’ve modernized it and oh, does it look good! Stripes are the prints the remind you of the ocean, of sailors, maybe it is always present when the weather warms up, it has a nautical feel to it! Florals are a great print in the spring when the real ones bloom; you’ll feel like you’ve had a new beginning.

Why not mix them both together? What? Stripes and florals….together? I will forewarn you all now; its not for the faint of heart. It’s for the risk-takers, the ones who are not afraid to stand out, and those who do not mind print. The key to mastering the two prints look is simple, make sure they are in the same color pallet.

As you can see from the top, keep accessories to a minimum as the prints will be doing all the talking for you. A little stud or two wouldn’t hurt though.

Do you think you could rock this look?
