Happy last Monday, everyone! This is in fact my last Monday as an undergraduate here at UMass. In less than two weeks I’ll have graduated and be out on my own with nothing but an English degree, a young adult novel that isn’t stapled and a record of my best outfits. Well, not really. I’m moving back home for a bit to work and write, but you see my point. This week I’m bringing you what I’m dubbing Senior Chic. This outfit is super comfortable and look! it even comes with a sweatshirt. Basically, it’s perfect for everyone like me, who is pretty much all set with school for now, but doesn’t want everyone to know that. I love a good pair of tailored-looking trousers and these ones are light enough to work for these flip-flopping chilly-to-warm days. These Steve Madden beauties are a college student’s version of the Gucci loafers every blogging foot has been in since last fall. I think they’re a great affordable alternative and I’m surprised at just how good they turned out. (Note that they run a little small.) They fall into the same category that the basic loafers I wore a few weeks ago do: close-toed summer shoes. And as I embark on my last two days of class, all I can think about is all the plans I have for this blog coming up — stay tuned! x
Happy Monday and happy star to the semester! (If you are, in fact, in college and happen to, in fact, start today.) I only had two classes today and while they were both entirely in German, the day went pretty well. It’s sad that I won’t be taking anymore French classes, but I’m excited to throw some more effort into German! It flurried on and off all day which is pretty typical behavior for this area in January. I wouldn’t be surprised if we have something more significant on the way. Even though it gets pretty cold I still like to serve looks when I can (I love that phrase). This one is really fun because while the majority of the outfit is gray, the pops of pink make it more me. I’m obsessed with these Steve Madden boots that I got from my mom for Christmas . Velvet boots have quickly become a staple and I love blush pinks so this combo was perfect! Basically, the outfit is cozy and fun. These are gray days, so my advice is the copy the weather but raise the bar. Much more rewarding.
