Celebrate Colorfully

Tomorrow night is the last event of my college career that I am chairing.
President's Ball, the annual holiday celebration open to the entire campus community, is going to fabulous!
The theme is Celebrate Colorfully (can you tell I am in charge?) and we have coordinated everything to have a festive touch. 
The decorations consist of: pink poinsettias, large christmas trees with sparkly lights and glitter bows, luminaries, brightly wrapped packages, and a lighting company providing the perfect pops of color and a demure draping effect. 
We will be have an array of food including chocolate fountains, festive punch, and more appetizers than I can begin to list. In addition to the food, entertainment will include a live jazz band, DJ, and graffiti wall which functions as an interactive photo booth. 
Here is the outfit I will be debuting, with plenty of colorful outfit inspiration photos as well. 
Wishing you a wonderful and festive weekend, toodles!

oxford loafers

I have a pair of black oxford loafers that I have been wearing a bit this fall. I am not sure how well I pull them off, but I am having a fun time testing out the style!

boho chic

Boho is definitely not my style, but it doesn't mean that I can't be both inspired and intrigued by the beautiful and gypsy like outfits. These women all look stunning and I love the flowy and artsy vibe in all of these images. The last look is a perfect blend of how to be both traditional and boho...and I challenge you to experiment with the style!

a fun way to experiment with the "boho chic" trend!

The best brands I would recommend for mastering the boho look are: Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Haute Hippie, and Free People.

word girl

I am always incredibly impressed when someone uses a fancy's an unexpected breath of fresh air (rather, wisp of intellectual jargon). The other evening I was quite shocked, in the best way possible, when a friend of mine used juxtapose in a comment. It's one thing if you are an english major...but for an economics major to nonchalantly throw such a word in conversation, well I thought it was simply wonderful. 
I always encourage individuals to expand their vocabulary. If it's extracting curse words from one's lexicon or looking up new words that one might come across from their reading material; I encourage the pursuit of sophisticated vocabulary!

The site, Everygirl has a series called: Using Fancy Words. 
Below are a collection of their fancy words.
Why don't you try adding some of these words to your vocabulary:

 the appropriate manners
usurious-charging illegal or exorbitant rates of interest for the use of money
blandishment-something that flatters or coaxes
innocuous-not harmful

libation-a pouring out of wine or other liquid in honor of a deity

midi skirt

It's not the mini...or the maxi, but the MIDI. What do you think of this length and the various ways it can be styled? I think Olivia Palermo's look in the center is my favorite, she is always so chic!
