Black and white is a combination that will never go out of style.  Add a fun print and a pop of color to draw some attention to your look and finish it off with a lipstick that matches your accessories.

Hi friends!  You may have noticed that the majority of clothing that I blog about is budget friendly fashion.  Although sometimes, I like to splurge on something big, I am living on a college student’s budget and I usually try to stay within my spending limits.  That being said, quality is something that is equally important to me and my favorite place that combines the two of these things is New York & Company.  The dresses are so sophisticated and pretty.  I’ve been interning at a public relations company almost everyday this summer and I find that dresses  like these have been perfect for work.  I’ve gotten so many compliments on this dress from co-workers and it was only $25.00!  I highly recommend checking out New York & Company if you haven’t already.

Thanks for reading! (:

Hi friends!  The 4th of July is approaching pretty quickly and I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to spend my long weekend relaxing by the pool, eating some yummy bbq and sitting in the grass for a fireworks show.   My holiday is going to be a pretty casual one, so I planned for a festive, yet comfortable outfit choice.  I’m normally the type of girl who will take any excuse to wear a dress, but sometimes keeping it simple in a pair of shorts and a tank top is just what I need.  This NYX “Perfect Red” is my go-to red lipstick by the way.  I wear it with everything.  Hope everyone has an amazing weekend and a happy 4th!  Thank you for reading and of course for all of your support! (: xoxo

Love,

Nicole

Hi friends!  I’ve mentioned it before, but my #1 secret for expanding your wardrobe is to wear your clothes differently than they are meant for.  These sunflower shorts are actually a romper.  I put my H&M tie tank top over the upper part to give the appearance of shorts.  You can re-wear pieces over and over again, yet your closet will always look like it’s updated!

Thanks for reading! (:
