Minty Fresh

Friday, August 17, 2012

HELLLO guys! So even though I have been locked in my sorority house all week, I have been crazy busy with recruitment. With recently moving into my beautiful house with all of my best friends, I can't help but feeling unbelievably blessed. Especially since new babies are on the way! I cannot wait to get to get to know all of the new members of Alpha Phi, it is going to be such an incredible year. With school starting Monday and summer ending, ends some of my favorite fashion trends. However, with some of these pieces, I am not ready to put them away quite yet... Mint green hue was everywhere this summer. The cool fresh hue is flattering to almost every skin tone and is a great color to mix with other fabrics like lace, silk, or chiffon. Be careful not to overload in the minty color and be sure to choose small accessories to balance out the mint. If you are afraid of color like in my last post, try out this soft pastel. However, I once again attempt rocking another fashion challenge. High waist printed pants. Two challenges in one. I think the biggest worry for women on this look is that men won't find it attractive. They don't necessary make our ASSets look "sweep me off my feet" ready, but with a few tips you can try the print pants in a more alluring way. You want a top that is a going to show a little more skin. For this look, I wore a transparent top to add a bit more appeal. Add a pair of pumps and your ready! Now if you are still unsure, heres a little inspiration from BJ.

the power you're supplying, it's ELECTRIFYING

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Even though it is only Tuesday, the week is just flying by. Tomorrow is my last day with the kids I nanny (I'm heartbroken), and Thursday I have to say goodbye to my family and my three best friends (my two older sisters and my puppy, Gilmore) and head back to Lincoln for school and RUSH! A completely bittersweet feeling.  I am absolutely ecstatic to head back to UNL and move into my beautiful big white house with all my sorority sisters, but saying goodbye is always the hardest part. On a bright note, literally, I wanted to share one of my favorite trends of summer. NEON. This electrifying hue has been highlighting the streets and runways since the spring. The ways you can rock neon are simply endless. Whether you just want to just carry an electric pink cross-body purse or maybe a pair of fluorescent green earrings everyone should have at least one piece that is electrifying. Many women are confused with the thought of wearing the loud hues. Below is my no fear neon look, with a bit of color blocking in a sophisticated and fun way! Even though I'm wearing a full on neon romper with tangerine heels, I simplified the outfit with a neutral clutch and simple earrings.

I am obsessed with rompers, what drew me to this one believe it or not wasn't the color, but the low dip in the front with the lace details and the open back. Have fun with neon, and also don't be afraid to double up on the neon either!
