During these days, I like to take some time to look back at all the obstacles and joyful moments that the year has brought me. The year 2012 has showered me with great opportunities and many new friendships. This has been the year for me to begin a journey to inspire women of all shapes and sizes. It is important for each and every one of you to honor (and care for) the body that makes you beautiful. Style has no size limits or constraints. Together, let's make 2013 your most fab year yet! 

Warm wishes,

{Dress: H&M $15 (similar) | Tank: Target $8 | Chambray: Cotton On $35 | Necklace: Charlotte Russe |
Heels: Nine West via Marshalls $17 (similar) | Wallet: Cynthia Rowley via Marshalls $25}

There is something very ladylike about tulle dresses and skirts. This H&M dress was on sale for the holidays, and I snagged it up for $15! I toughened up the outfit a little bit with the chambray button-up, but kept it feminine with the rhinestone necklace. This ensemble is great for an afternoon party or a girls night out. Pinkies up!

Leggings: Forever 21 $10 | Sandals: Calvin Klein Gift (similar)

Who says green and red is only acceptable for tacky Christmas sweater parties? I really love how this red bubble necklace looks over the lime green knit. Finished off with leather leggings and gold sandals, this outfit has casual cool written all over it. Happy post Christmas shopping!

{1. Max and Chloe | 2. Blazer | 3. Jeggings | 4. Belt}

Pantone announced that emerald green is the color of the upcoming year. With that in mind, when you do your post Christmas shopping make sure to snag pieces in this elegant shade. Happy Wednesday!

{Hat: Kohl's $17 | Dress: TJ Maxx $20 (similar) | Cardigan: Adrienne Vittadini (similar) |
Heels: Nine West via Marshalls $17 (similar) | Earrings: Gift (similar)}

It's Christmas Eve! If you will be arriving late to your annual holiday parties, make sure you're fashionably late. This season, I've been seeing a lot of bright colors instead of the usual winter whites and tans. Don't be scared to make a statement.

Merry Christmas to all,

{Blazer: Old Navy $35 | T-shirt: Walmart $8 (similar) | Bag: Badgley Mischka via Marshall's $200 |
Oxfords: Aldo $20 | Jeans: Old Navy $35 | Necklace: Borrowed (similar) | Bracelet: Kohl's}

As soon as I spotted this simple (and cheap!) Beatles tee at Walmart, I knew it would look great underneath a chic, black blazer. The graphic tee and blazer trend has been going strong for a couple of seasons now, and I believe it isn't going anywhere. Pair old band T-shirts with new, bright blazers for an effortlessly cool look.

{Sweater: Forever 21 $23 | Chambray: Cotton On $35 | Flats: Charlotte Russe $15 |
Necklace: Cotton On $5 | Jeans: Old Navy $35 | Watch: Michael Kors $250}

It was love at first bark. Two years ago, my sister came home with this lovely little teacup Morkie named Mia. Ever since, she has had a little piece of my heart. As far as the outfit goes, I'm really loving the denim shirt and sweater trend. It's one of those no-fail outfits that can come in handy on busy days.

Earrings: Pacsun $8 | Jeans: Old Navy $35 | Sunnies: Michael Kors via TJ Maxx $15}

You'd expect to spend the days prior to Christmas next to a warm fire all cozied up with chunky knit sweaters, toasting marshmallows and singing traditional carols, right? Wrong. It seems as though December hasn't come to our town yet. On the other hand, what has come to town is a variety of winter sales, including $7 jeans at Cotton On and $10 leggings and dresses at H&M. As people begin to do last-minute Christmas shopping, make sure to be on the lookout for blowout sales on seasonal items as well as those perfect for spring. Happy Wednesday!

{1. Alice + Olivia $390 | 2. Dorothy Perkins $55 | 3. SheInside $44 | 4. J. Crew $118}

A huge trend this season is sequin, sequin, sequin. Everything from sequined handbags to sequined loafers, 'tis the season to sparkle! A great way to pull off the sparkly trend is to go for the safe-but-sassy sparkly sweater. This way, you won't look like a disco ball at your next holiday party, but you will definitely not be missed! Enjoy!

{Heels: Aldo $80 (similar) | Jacket: Kohl's $25 (similar) | Top: Kohl's $15 | Watch: Michael Kors |
Leggings: Forever 21 $15 (similar) | Bracelets: Forever 21 & Target | Earrings: Charming Charlie}

Throwing on a pair of leather leggings (even faux ones) gives me a brand new sense of confidence. I love this outfit because it yells out plain ol' BAD ASS. The spiky bracelet gives it a final touch of edge. Just because it's winter time doesn't mean your outfits have to reflect Saint Nick's jolly, happy soul. Outfits have the right to rebel, too.  

Happy Monday!

There is something very intriguing about tunnels. It is almost as though the structure is calling you, inviting you into its shadowy home. On my campus, there are designated spaces for students and Gainesville residents to express themselves through art. Fashion blogging is an art, right? I hope so.
