My studded ankle cowboy boots
Everyone has an oversized tshirt or two, whether it's memorbilia from summer camp or your boyfriend's old tee (as in my case). Good news, you don't have to throw these away anymore or keep them hidden away in the back of your closet! Introducing the tshirt dress...which can be done in three ways. Pockets (cinch it with a belt!), front tie, and back tie. I can't sew so this is perfect for me. Just check out the youtube video below. I added some southern flair to my outfit with some cowboy boots and a cropped jean vest.

This is overdue, but trust me it took forever to go through every single fashion show and pick my favorites. Whew!

I was going to talk trends on this post, too, but I don't want to fry your brain with too many fashion week pics. I know I have a headache from staring at my computer all day long. So I think what I'll do instead is talk about them when we're actually about to begin the season of fall 2012 so no one forgets and plus it'll be a little refresher. Toodles!

It's no secret that I'm an avid Pinterest user. But if you're any sort of fashionista, you're way behind if you don't have one. It's the easiest way to get major inspiration all at one easy to use website. Hair, beauty, fashion, and DIY projects are all there for your viewing pleasure. TONS of them. You can even follow Michael Kors and the genuises at A Pair & a Spare and P.S-I made this (both insanely good DIY blogs.) So I'm starting a "Pin of the Week" post to show you guys my personal pins and inspirations. Hope you likey!
A Pair & a Spare is one of my favorite DIY blogs. This chick is so creative. I don't know how she does it. But here is her latest post: suede fringe anklets. All you need is a couple of materials to take your boring shoes into show-stopping shoes that make people do a double-take.
Red lips are everywhere right now. I can't wait to try this look out with black and white "going out" look. It's something unexpected, especially for college girls. Something as simple as a lip color can really make you stand out from the crowd and complete a look. Now I just have to run to the store to find the right shade for my skin tone. Maybe pics up later?
These DIY nails are from the ladies over at College Fashion. The tutorial is really simple and the fun take on the french manicure is perfect for Valentine's Day. The best part is no nail-art polishes are required. Just use your favorite pastel colors, using the brush to create these cute hearts! You can find the step-by-step here: http://www.collegefashion.net/beauty-and-hair/diy-nail-art-inspired-by-conversation-hearts/
P.S. Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about NYFW! I've been keeping up with it on a daily basis and the shows are blowing me away. I'll have my favorite looks/trends by the end of the week!

This is what I found at my Target in Greenville, NC. Eh, not much. Of course by the time I got there at 4:00 lots of things had been pretty much picked over. Not surprising if you remember the whole Missoni for Target madness. I don't think the Jason Wu for Target collection really compares to the magnitude of press that Missoni brought Target. Or the quality of pieces. I don't know if it's just not my style or what, but I wasn't a huge fan. Let me know if you disagree.
THIS stuff, on the other hand, was also at Target. It's from Target's own brand Xhiliration. I was bored with Jason Wu but when I found these pieces I was like a kid on Christmas morning. I know neon gets hated on sometimes, but I personally am obsessed with it. I hope it never goes away. And these tribal print shorts are just on a whole 'nother level. Of course my dumbass goes in there without any money on me. So now I'm left to merely post about them when all I can think about is what I'm going to wear with them in the spring, which I'm so ready for now. *Sigh*

Where the hell can I find these shoes? Can anyone tell me this? I know the answer seems obvious. Hello, Kohls. But I've been on the hunt now and they're not on the website. Looked there. They're not in the stores. Looked there, too. They need to be in my closet and they're not. This is a problem.
