OMG it has been way too long!  I am so sorry guys!  Things have been a little crazy since graduating from college and I needed to take a little blogging hiatus if you know what I mean.  Sometimes you just need to put a pause on everything and take a step back.  That being said, I have missed this so much and can’t wait to get back into making new and (hopefully better) posts for you all!

This top has been my obsession all summer.  I have worn it an embarrassing number of times and I honestly have to say the quality really is there on this piece.  After washing (and admittedly putting it in the dryer several times) it still looks brand new and fits perfectly!

Thanks again to all of you who have been patient the last few months and stuck around!  You guys are the best and I can’t wait for all the changes that are coming to theinspirationcloset.com in the next few months.  A new site makeover perhaps??  Stay tuned!

Love,

Nicole

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 everyone!  One of my favorite places to visit throughout the warm weather months is the lake.  There are so many in my area, but this one happens to be right down the road from me, which is why I couldn’t resist shooting here!  There are so many trees surrounding this lake that it actually makes the water look green too!

This outfit was definitely very nautical inspired.  I’m loving headbands lately as well.  What’s your favorite hair accessory?  Thanks for reading! (:
