I am the Vice President of the Spirit and Homecoming Organization and we are in the midst of the biggest week of the year! Our organization is responsible for increasing school spirit throughout the campus community and we are living it up this Homecoming Week!
I am planning to sport my red and black these next few days in the most fashionable ways as possible. My favorite look is my big red flower that I made! It makes quite a statement! Here are some images of other fashionistas with similar ideas!
I know it's been awhile since I've had this little series,
but here's another shot at
Here's What I'm Loving Now!
It's Homecoming Week at school and I am all in a buzz sporting my red and black. I don't have too many red pieces in my wardrobe, so I frequently sport my red flower! Several years ago, I started making flower pins...and I guess I was somewhat of a trend setter for kate spade's September campaign :) haha. Here are some shots of red flowers, tune back this weekend for more inspirations with my floral fetish!
Being back at school, the work load ceases to end. I have been able to manage my activities, fun, and work pretty well for the past two years...and I am hoping that continues for my third year!
Being an English and Politics double major means that my life is spent reading and writing. So when the Public Administration reading gets a little dense and I can't seem to find any inspiration on 19th C American Literature...I'll just dream of click-clacking away on a type writer! So fabulous!!
Feeling a little sleepy today...and wishing we had made it beyond Tuesday; alas, no such luck! So to get me up this morning, I found a collection of images of 'pillow fights'. Not that I'd like to be woken up with a pillow flung in my face, but the pictures do make it seem somewhat enjoyable!
Since it's 40 degrees this morning...I thought it was quite the appropriate time for this post!
Your distant aunt, Muffy, might be the common link you have with the preppy wardrobe staple, Irish knit sweaters, but I have a couple of inspirations to show you how to pull of the look without a light house by the East Coast "Atlantic Ocean" in the background!
These sweaters are making quite a dent in the fashion books for this upcoming season and I am all for the look! Here are some looks that are perfect 'transitional' outfits as we make our way into fall. The sweater is absolutely timeless and if you have trouble finding it online, I am sure you'd come across it in a family members closet or antique shopping!!
Even though there are many 'hipster cool' ways to play off the look...I am always up for the wind-swept hair, a down vest, khakis, and bean boots with collection of gold bangles on the wrist, Preppy Handbook anyone?!
This look is totally one that my roommate would sport!
Fall is the busiest time of the year for me with planning and coordinating events! I feel like I spend all of my time running back and forth from meeting to meeting. It's fun and I love being involved and staying busy...although it can easily get a bit overwhelming. So for those "crazy" days, here is a little craft project you can work on (when/if you have a breather...if not, that's why boutique stores exist) that can make your crazy work load a little less stressful and give you something to smile about!
Here are a collection of clip boards, so practical for the work force, especially if you are busy planning events like me! They are relatively inexpensive to buy and SO much fun to dress up. With a little bit of wrapping paper or scrapbook paper, some stickers, markers, bows, or whatever arts and craft tool you find at Michael's it's easy to whip up your own personalized clip board!
Maybe writing a little inspirational quote will help be the perfect words of wisdom you need on the hectic days! Here's to staying calm, er well at least a little more colorful during the meeting rush!
Other ideas for how to use clipboards in fun and creative ways!!
I own no right to these pictures. These are a sampling of the vast collection of photos that I have saved from years of searching for inspiration throughout the blogosphere and cyber world. I would be more than happy to provide you with a direct link to a particular photo upon request. Just send me an email (email@example.com) and I will help you with official citations. Thank you!!
