Hi friends!  As much as I wish it wasn’t, summer is quickly coming to an end.  In a little over a week I’ll be in my last year of college, and although I’m looking forward to the new year, I’m really going to miss my summer wardrobe!  I’m taking every opportunity possible to wear my favorite warm weather skirts (like this one) while I still can.  This particular skirt from H&M is a few years old, but in general, I love bold patterns like this paired with a simple top and accessories during warm seasons like this one.

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! (:

If you haven’t noticed by now, pink is definitely my favorite color!  This light pink sweater is from last year from Garage clothing.  As much as I love it, I was kinda hoping to ditch it by now (you know with it being spring and all).  However, unfortunately, although we have had plenty of warm days there are still a few chilly ones thrown in there.  April in NJ is a total tease.  What can you do right?

Hi friends!  This right here is a new one for me.  I’ve never tried all white with a bold color to compliment, but I love how it turned out!  This is a great way to look put together without really trying (which is usually what I aim for).  If you’ll notice I’m only wearing a plain white t-shirt underneath, but it gets lost because of the matching white jeans, (which is exactly what you want).  It gives the illusion of a much fancier outfit than it actually is.  Thanks for reading!

Love,
