Let Me Live

As the summer is coming to an end and school is about to start again, I wanted to take one last adventure with a friend. What better place than Adventure Aquarium in Camden.

I went with my friend Tommy, who just started his own blog called Let Me Live, so go check out his blog and give him some love!

Tommy and I went to high school together, but now he is a student at Monmouth University and he is studying Business Administration with a Concentration in Marketing. As a student, Tommy has his own unique style and I decided to ask him about it.

What does “style” mean to you?

“Style is when someone has his or her own uniqueness to their outfit. Everyone has style, but everyone has different kinds of style, if you know what I mean haha. For example, I wear a lot of t-shirts but I choose to buy the ones that have graphics or writing on them because even though it is a basic t-shirt it adds my personality on the t-shirt.”

IMG_2048

How would you describe your personal style?

“If you know my personality, that is how you would kind of describe my style. I like cool colors and graphics, but also clean cut clothing so nothing too big or nothing too tight. I try to be comfortable as much as possible in my clothes but still look decent in my clothes because why wear something that is not comfortable?”

What is one piece of clothing/accessory you can’t live without or has a special meaning to you?

“For some reason, I always have my backpack with me. I always seem to have something to carry, either it is a book or my laptop or even my friends’ personal things. Also, since I have an Android phone, people never have my charger so I always just put it in my backpack just in case.”

Tommy and I had so much fun exploring the aquarium and the Waterfront in Camden.

Here are just a few of the pictures from our trip.

My white and blue romper is from Old Navy.

I decided to pair the romper with my favorite summer accessories which you have seen in posts before. My sandals are from TJ Maxx and my bag is from & Other Stories.

Be sure to check out Let Me Live, Tommy’s blog, and read the collab post he wrote on there!

If you like these kind of collaboration posts where I ask my fellow students questions, let me know and I will be sure to do many more.

The High Line

One of the perks of a photography class in New York City is visiting fun places around the city. My class recently visited the High Line, one of my favorite spots.

If you have never heard of the High Line, it’s an old train track that was built in 1934 but stopped running in the 1980s. In 1999, the Friends of the High Line was founded by Joshua David and Robert Hammond. Residents of the High Line neighborhood came together to advocate for the High Line’s preservation and reuse as public open space.

In 2002, the renovations began and in 2004 it opened to the public as a park.

The wildlife and plants are so beautiful and you forget that just 30 feet below you are cars and tourist rushing around the city.

My favorite thing to do while at the High Line is to people watch. While many tourist visit and enjoy the park, many New Yorkers can just relax.

It wouldn’t be a Styled Student post without an outfit shot.

IMG_0755.JPG

The top I was wearing was a long striped t-shirt with splits up the sides from Zara, Forever 21 leggings, and my trusty Circus by Sam Edelman booties. I paired the look with a black jean jacket from Free People and my Kenneth Cole fringe handbag.

The High Line is such a cool park on the west side of New York City, if you haven’t been there yet, I would recommend visiting.

Monochrome in the Spring ~ 3.27.16

Happy Easter to all who celebrate it today.

Although I don’t celebrate Easter, I just wanted to share a quick Outfit Of The Day with you that is perfect for the holiday or any spring day.

My look for today is a monochrome look featuring dark denim and this gorgeous white top I found at Express. I also found another top at Express, check out the store because everything in the store is 40% off! This white top has two long panels that flow over the lower cropped section. I love these jeans I found at Urban Outfitters, also on sale! These are the most comfortable jeans I own and adorable with the split detail at the ankle, which shows off shoes perfectly.

IMG_0349.JPG

I added my favorite faux leather jacket that I have owned for years from Steve Madden. The black leather added a little edge to the girly and flowy top.

IMG_0356.JPG

Couldn’t leave the house without some sunglasses. These sunnies were actually a gift from my cousin Hope. I love the shape of these and how big they are to block the sun.

IMG_0352.JPG

I am in love with these new shoes from Kenneth Cole. They are super comfortable because of the wedge and the treaded sole. The combination of crocodile embossed leather and black espadrille wedge is so different and fun.

IMG_0354.JPG

This look is perfect for any spring day, whether you are spending it with friends at brunch or while spending Easter with family.

Spring Break in Mexico?!

Midterms are over and Spring Break is finally here. While some other college students may be partying on the beaches of Mexico, I’m just excited to head home for a few days. Before heading home, Abby and I decided to have one little adventure around the city.

We headed downtown near the World Trade Center and found an adorable Mexican restaurant called El Vez on Veset Street. Even though I could be in Mexico partying, I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant with mosaic benches and low hanging string lights.

The food was even better than the atmosphere! I ordered a chicken enchilada while Abby ordered a massive burrito, both of us bringing nearly half home!

IMG_0216

After lunch, we found this manmade park by the river.

IMG_0272

It wouldn’t be a Styled Student blog post without showing my outfit.

IMG_0234

I wanted to dress down this asymmetrical dress with a pair of Kenneth Cole white sneakers and my favorite accessory, a vest. If you have been reading since last spring, you know I love pairing vests with dressier looks to dress down the look.

IMG_0239

Don’t let my outfit of laugh confuse you, it was frigidly cold in New York City. I am ready for spring to permanently be here.

IMG_0244

I always have so much fun exploring new parts of the city and trying new restaurants. If you live in the city or have any recommendations on where to go next, let me know in the comments!

My next few posts will be about my few days back home for Spring Break. Make sure to check out my Instagram to stay updated on when I post new blogs.

Until Next Time..

Soho Saturdays ~ 2.28.15

Living in New York City and having a shopping addiction can be pretty harmful for your wallet. But working in Soho and having to pass all the shops and new window displays… That can be detrimental.

Today, before heading to work, tow of my close friends and I did a little shopping and lunch in my favorite part of the city.

IMG_5538

So for my work/shopping outfit I wore Kate Spade Saturday’s green boat neck dress and Zip Line Bag, with tights and my favorite denim vest. On my feet were my Doctor Martins.

I also recently dyed my hair purple, which you can see in these photos. Let me know your opinions in the comments!

IMG_5540

My roommate Abby wore a jacket by 1 Madison with boots and a scarf from Target.

IMG_5524

My friend Allie wore a Betsey Johnson coat paired with pants, sun glasses, and bag from C Wonder. To finish her look, her boots are from Coach.

IMG_5547

And then we just started messing around in the middle of the street, trying not to get hit by cars!

What I Wore to Fashion Week ~ September 7, 2014

Since New York Fashion Week is coming to a close, I thought it would be appropriate to show you guys what I wore when I “stalked” the street style (Check out my latest post here).

1937473_10203696198198512_7529045376544971436_n

I wanted to keep my look pretty simple because I was carrying around my camera and blogging essentials. I wore my favorite H&M black skater dress with my studded vest. I found this awesome metal necklace for only $3 at a discount jewelry shop in Times Square. My rounded sunglasses add a little edge and uniqueness to the outfit.

Don’t worry I didn’t wear my Target sandals to Fashion Week. But I did have to replace my Anthropolgie wedges for the sandals since my roommate and I took these photos in Central Park on top of a giant boulder.

 This wasn’t just my first Fashion Week in the city but my first time to Central Park. I knew that Central Park was beautiful, but I didn’t expect it to be as gorgeous as it was and massive. It was interesting to see such a serene place in the hustle and bustle of New York City.

10649590_10203696207918755_2272895120875027742_n

Over all my first Fashion Week was pretty cool. Fingers crossed that next Fashion Week I’ll be volunteering for a show or two.

Let me know what show was your favorite at NYFW.

OOTD ~ March 6, 2014

Hello Beautiful!

There is still some snow on the ground here on the East Coast, but the weather is starting to warm up.

So here is another Outfit Of The Day for the transitional weather.

(Ignore the ugly bucket on my front porch… My dad was using it the other day)

Image

I wore this outfit yesterday to school and I absolutely love this top. It’s from Finally, the clothing boutique I work at. I have been obsessed with black and white. It is the perfect all year round color. The light sheer panel on the bottom of the shirt is great for this transition season where the winter hasn’t really left but spring is right around the corner. I paired this top with simple blue skinny jeans and my favorite black ankle booties that I have worn the heck out of this season.

ImageI finished my outfit off with a statement necklace, also from Finally. I love that the stones on the necklace are see through so that they catch the color of any top your wearing.

Have an amazing day!

Lots of Love,

Jami

 

Welcome!

Hi Everyone!

My name is Jami and I am 18 years old. I’m a senior in high school and I’m planning on making my way to New York City for college come August for fashion! I work at a small boutique, called Finally, that’s sells women’s clothing and accessories in my town, I absolutely love working there.

I want to start this blog for students of any age, high school or college, to come and seek inspiration, hence Style Student. I want to be able to post about fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. I want to be able to communicate with my readers so if you have ideas or want to see a certain type of post let me know! You just wont be seeing posts about my outfits, I’m going to be posting outfits that my friends and fellow classmates wear as well.

So to get into my first post, here is my Outfit of the Day:

The oversized button up top is my favorite Thrift Store find. The pants are just normal legging. I paired this outfit with simple black booties and a fun colorful statement necklace.

Here’s a selfie I took later during the day. I accessoried with my Ray Bans and a leather jacket.

Here’s another selfie I took at work. I changed my shoes from the booties to these lace up platform heels from H&M.
