Halloweekend

img_0557img_0572img_0574Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope you all had great weekends and are still alive for the actual day of Halloween. I had a lot ton of fun this weekend, mostly due to my friends and my awesome purple faux fur coat. The first night, if you didn’t know, I was Chanel from Fox’s Scream Queens. The second night, my friends and I were the now pretty typical aliens, only we went for intergalactic instead of silver and green. I have to say the antennae were pretty fun, even if it startled us every now and then when one would clunk us on the head (those were homemade). Instead of going out the second night, we decided to bake brownies and watch halloween specials of The Office and my personal favorite That 70’s Show. I prefer funny to scary.

SO if you’re a traditionalist, today is the day to buy yourself a mixed bag of fun size candy, eat the whole thing, and fall asleep in front of Hocus Pocus. And that, I think, is the true beauty of Halloween.

Happy Monday, everyone! It’s very gray out today, so why not add some bright red? Especially since everyone on campus will be particularly bleary-eyed after our Homecoming Weekend festivities, I thought I’d walking around looking like a police siren. I myself barely made it past 8p.m. on Saturday and went to bed completely exhausted. This outfit was really fun and I loved putting it together. These heels were a summer sale snag that I got in late August. They won’t get too much wear considering I walk about 5 miles a day (and most often at a sort of “I’m late” half-jogging pace) but they worked so well for today’s outfit I thought I’d give them a shot. The blue and white striped shirt I’m wearing however, is a basic oversized Oxford shirt that I wanted to make more interesting. Therefor I wore it as a strapless shirt by unbuttoning it and shimmying out of it just a little bit. Tying the sleeves in the front added a lot of dimension and I thought it worked quite well (getting red lipstick on it after the shoot is another story).

Sheer Greatness

Hello, everyone! I don’t know about any of you, but I’ve had a crazy amount of work to do, from tons of reading, to a French exam, to finalizing my application to go abroad! Anyway, I’ve been really excited about getting this top from H&M’s AW Studio Collection. Besides being a turtleneck, which I love, it’s sheer! Don’t be afraid of sheer, ladies, it can work. And if you’ve got a cute bra, WHY NOT show it off under this gorgeous sweater? Having a visible bra doesn’t have to be a taboo. Recently, many other bloggers and street style icons have loved showing off their bras. From gorgeous black lace under a white tee, to patterned halters under just a blazer – it can be done!  .x K

Happy Monday, everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend, I was at a beautiful wedding, my friend Heather got married, and can I say her dress was AMAZING (check out my Instagram for pics!).

It was a little chilly this morning, which I was excited about because this blanket-cum-scarf is one of my favorite buys this fall and I was so excited to finally wear it. It’s really big and soft and once in class I untied it and used it as a shawl! It’s a great layer and let’s face it – a much more chic way to be cozy than a sweatshirt.

Bum a Cig (Smoke Free)

8:1 2 8:1 3 8:1 4 8:1 5 8:1 6Hello, everyone! I’ve only got two weeks left here in England and it’s been absolutely amazing. I’ve wanted to show you all these jeans since I bought them at Zara because I am obsessed! They’re a fit called ‘cigarette’ and in case you haven’t heard of them, it’s often the fit for trousers and women’s suit pants. They are a bit looser than skinnies and often cropped at the ankle (if you want to give the illusion of being a bit taller). They are a good alternative to boyfriend jeans (a lot of girls have told me they don’t like how boyfriend jeans fit on themselves) so give your skinny jeans a rest and try these!

Blenheim Blues

Hi everyone! Sorry for the big delay, the internet here is so finicky! But, here I am, as I promised. I’ve been in love with this dress forever, Pixie Market always has so many stunners. The sleeveless aspect is great for warm weather and the length is really really flattering. Ladies – don’t be afraid to try all the skirt and dress lengths that aren’t mini or maxi! This midi length is really fun and looks better with a heel (I was walking around all day at Blenheim Palace so sneakers it was!) than anything that falls above the knee. But, by what you can see I’m wearing, is also really fun with a sneaker or a flat sandal.

Also – sorry for the lack of shots, for some reason a lot of them aren’t uploading! Check out my instagram for another good one, and be sure to give that page a follow at umass_streetstyle.

I’ll try to post again sooner this time, fingers crossed the internet works for me!
