Today marks my first day as a college student. I am beyond excited to start this next chapter in my life. Before I left for college, my friend Alexandra Sapp, and I decided to have one last photoshoot.
This first outfit is definitely one of my favorites. It might still be summer, but you can never go wrong with a good black outfit. The jeans I am wearing are Madewell jeans. Yes, the brand is called Madewell. And yes, they are made SO well. My cousin, Liza Anne, bought them for me as a Christmas present a few years ago. For a long time, I did not know that you are not supposed to wash quality made jeans too much. And even though I washed them a ton, they have lasted for a long time and are still in great condition. They are mid-waisted, comfy, cute, and can be worn with just about anything. Not only that, but Madewell cares so much about their customers. I caught my jeans on a nail, causing them to rip. I immediately took my jeans to the Madewell store, and they sewed them up with no charge.
The black shirt I am wearing in this outfit is actually a bodysuit. And for a bodysuit, it is actually pretty comfortable. I paired this low cut bodysuit with a black, velvet chocker from Pacsun.
After about an hour in the scorching heat, I decided to change outfits. This next outfit is another one of my favorites. I chose a black top from Pacsun, Calvin Klein shorts, and the same shoes and accessories. The shirt is super fun and flirty, and can be styled in so many ways. Plus, it has all of the countries I want to travel to, on the front of the shirt. I mean... couture in Paris, high fashion in New York, rock fashion in London, and hip fashion in Los Angeles? A girl can only dream.
These Calvin Klein shorts used to be plain jeans. My cousin, Liza Anne, actually cut them and frayed them herself. They are my go-to summer shorts, and basically the only shorts I ever wear. Love, love, love them.
Fun fact: I am a shoe hoarder. If I have an outfit I absolutely love, I will not wear it if I don't have the perfect shoe to tie it together. So for me, the shoe that ties this outfit together is a black pair of leather converse. This limited edition collection of converse was a collaboration with John Varvatos to celebrate the 40th anniversary of punk rock. They are by far the most stylish and comfortable converse I own. Plus, I got these shoes on sale, which makes it an even better purchase.
These two outfits are perfect for casual outings with your friends. You could dress up the bodysuit with a nice skirt or pair of pants and heels, or dress it down, like I did. All in all, these items are great buys.
That's all for today, but thank you so much for reading! My next post will be next Saturday, so don't miss it! Maybe I'll do a college edition post, I don't know. But come back next week to find out! Happy Saturday everyone!
