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.”

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.

Colour Pop First Impression

You probably have heard about the makeup brand Colour Pop, every blogger and youtuber has talked about the makeup brand. They are known for their low price points, amazing color range, and great quality.

I finally decided to give this brand a try and bought a few products from their website.

IMG_1056

I decided to try two of the Lippie Stixs, a Sculpting Stix, an Ultra Mate Lip, and a Creme Gel Colour.

IMG_1064.JPG

This first Lippie Stix is in the color Hype Girl, which is a matte finish.

IMG_1066

The second Lippie Stix is in the color BFF, which is a glossy finish.

I have tried both of these Lippie Stixs, and for a first impression I didn’t love how they applied onto the lips. I really want to love these, especially since they are only $5 each! I am going to continue to try wearing them for longer periods of time and see how I like them. Hopefully I will have a better review of them in the future.

IMG_1061

Colour Pop has two Sculpting Stixs, one for contour and this one for high light, each for only $5! I decided to try the high light shade called Releve. So far I have only tried this as an inner corner highlight, but I love it! The size of the tip is perfect for the inner corner of the eye. It is a great color to brighten and open the eyes.

IMG_1062.JPG

Another lip product, but unlike the Lippie Stix, I absolutely love this Ultra Matte Lip in Midi. This matte lip is not drying and dries down super quick. The color does not exactly match the color shown on the website, it is a little darker, but none the less a beautiful color. For only $6, this ultra matte lip is an amazing buy!

IMG_1058

I wanted to try something a little different for spring and summer, so right before I checked out online, I decided to but the Creme Gel Colour in Cry Baby. For just $6, I thought this would be a fun replacement to the harsh black eyeliner I typically like to wear.

IMG_1082

Here are some swatches of the products on my fair skin.

From top to bottom: Cry Baby, Revere, Midi, Hype Girl, and BFF

IMG_1067

I ordered my makeup on a Wednesday and got my package by Monday, which is super quick shipping. I have heard others weren’t happy with Colour Pop’s shipping and customer service, but I have no bad words for the brand.

Overall, I think Colour Pop is going to become a favorite brand and I am excited to order more products from them.

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.

IMG_0636.JPG

IMG_0639.JPG

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.

IMG_0640.JPG

IMG_0650.JPG

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

IMG_0652

IMG_0653

IMG_0675.JPG

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.

IMG_0677.JPG

IMG_0744.JPG

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.

IMG_0757.JPG

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.

Perfect Pier Day~ 3.12.16

When New York City gives you a beautiful day, you need to go out and take pictures, right?!

IMG_0009.JPG

Today my Abby and I went to the piers by the Hudson River to take advantage of the gorgeous weather. We found this one pier with this giant wheel that looked super cool, so we decided to check it out.

IMG_0013.JPG

My outfit includes a pair a comfortable black gypsy pants with a crop top from Forever 21. I added a light denim jacket and my Kenneth Cole sandals to complete the look.

IMG_0095.JPG

IMG_0085.JPG

I also wore my Prada sunglasses that I rented from Ditto.com. If you want to learn more about renting, check out my previous post!

IMG_0093.JPG

If you haven’t noticed already, I cut my hair super short! It was a super spontaneous decision after seeing tons of celebrities and bloggers chopping their locks off. So far I am loving my short hair! Let me know your thoughts about it!

IMG_0110.JPG

IMG_0107.JPG

IMG_0104.JPG

We also found a shop that rents kayaks, so maybe that will be our next sunny day adventure.

IMG_0178.JPG

We had an amazing time getting outdoors and exploring the piers. Sometimes we get caught up with work or school work and don’t get out enough, so getting the fresh air was much needed.

Hope you are all enjoying this spring weather!

Trend: Winter White

Recently, someone asked me what I thought about the classic “No white after labor day trend”. So I thought I would share my answer with you.
I love believe “trends” are what you make them out to be. As someone who loves fashion, I like to interpret trends to fit my style. If a trend isn’t my style, I’m not going to go incorporate it into all my looks because it doesn’t represent me and my style.
One trend that I am all for though is winter white. Although it contradicts “no white after labor day”, winter white is classic and chic.
I love this look of winter white. I incorporated an oversized turtleneck sweater dress with a pair of camel thigh high boots. These thigh high boots have been everywhere and are a trend that I can support. They look great with dresses, like in this look, but also with your favorite skinny jeans and a top.
Winter White
For a little more white, I added furry white handbag. It adds a little texture and fun to this otherwise simple look.
What do you think of the winter white trend? Are you going to try it this season or stick to your darker colors?

Spring Wish List

It’s starting to feel a lot like spring here in New York, and I couldn’t be more excited.
Time to put away the oversized sweaters and chunky scarves to bring out your spring clothing.
This season I want to do some spring cleaning and get rid of all the clothing I know I won’t be wearing and replace it with an updated wardrobe.
Spring Wish List
The first thing on my Spring Wish List is the cream Kate Spade top pictured above. I love to switch from black to white in the spring, so this top would be cute to dress up or down for the season.
Ripped jeans and fun shorts are another must have for spring.
Funky flats have been all over the runways during Fashion Week. I’m used to wearing heels or sandals during the warmer months, but I would love to get into these fun shoes.
Backpacks are starting to appear everywhere, and not the canvas JanSports that everyone had in middle school. Backpacks are replacing handbags quickly and I want to jump right into that trend!
Lastly I cannot wait to pull my bronzer out to warm up my pale skin. I love NARS bronzers for their color and wearing.
Whats on your Spring Wish List? I’d love to know and maybe add to my list!

Fall NYC

As a fashion student in New York City, I like to keep my style stylish yet comfortable. 
I used one of my favorite sites, Polyvore, to create a look  of one of my favorite fall looks. Pairing a black and white striped top with ripped boyfriend jeans creates a cute easy outfit. My fall essential would be chunky boots because of their comfort and how cute they are. I had to add a leather backpack to carry around all those books from class to class. 
Fall NYC

What do you think of this look created by Polyvore? I think I may be using this site to create more looks in the future. If you have an account, feel free to follow me and check out previous outfits I have created. Also comment your account and I’ll check out your Polyvore looks.
