Vacation Diaries: Missing the Beach

It has been about a month since my last post, and I am so sorry. After getting back from vacation I have been swamped with work and preparing for the upcoming school year. I did want to share one last outfit post from my week in Brigantine.

I found this dress at a cute shop on the Ocean City boardwalk when my parents and I spent the night there, I wrote a post about our night there. This purple off the shoulder dress is perfect for day or night. I tried to keep my look casual for a day out in the town. I paired the dress with these lace up sandals I found at TJ Maxx and my Raybans. I kept my makeup simple with just some BB cream with SPF and mascara, I don’t like feeling cake faced while at the beach.

As much as I miss the relaxing beach and hanging out by the pool, I am very excited to get back to New York City for my third year. In just one short month, I will be reunited with the big apple and you will obviously come along on all my adventures. Stay tuned!

Life Update & OOTD

First of all, I’d like to say congrats to anyone who has graduated this spring! I just graduated myself with my associates degree last week, and will start my bachelors degree next fall. Check out my blog post talking about school here.

Today I wanted to give a little bit of an update to you guys! As you guys can see from these photos, I am not in New York City anymore. I have moved back home to New Jersey for the summer. I originally planned to stay in the city for the summer and continue working. Luckily, I was able to transfer to a store close to home.

If you didn’t know, I work for Kenneth Cole. This outfit is actually what I wore to my first day working at the new store yesterday. It was great day, and I am so excited to meet and work with a new group of great people this summer.

My top is a Kenneth Cole button up that has slits up the front and back. I paired it with a plain pair of black leggings and a statement necklace for a pop of color.

I also wore a pair of Kenneth Cole platforms and my favorite Ray Ban sunglasses.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

Renting Sunglasses?!

As a college student, especially one who has an obsession for all things accessories, it’s difficult to splurge on designer items. A bag or shoes can be gorgeous, but us students can’t shell out hundreds of dollars for these luxury goods. We have other expenses, like textbooks, supplies, food, etc…

I recently discovered a site, Ditto.com,  where you can rent designer sunglasses for $24 a month, basically Netflix for sunglasses. These sunglasses range from Rayban to Mui Mui. I just got my first pair in the mail, which are these gorgeous Prada 0 PR 09 QS in black. These sunglasses retail for $385, but only cost $24 a month to rent.

The best thing about Ditto, you can keep the glasses as long as you’d like! When you’re ready to exchange them for a new pair, swap them for a new pair. The new pair will arrive with a shipping label and you can send the old pair back.

Let me know you’re thoughts on the idea of renting sunglasses! So far, I am in love!

Keep an eye out for my next post where I will be styling these sunglasses with a fun spring outfit.
