5 Things That Can Make Your Basic Outfit, Not-So-Basic

If you're more of a minimalist like us and like your basic tees and jeans we have five things we always wear to still stand out wearing a basic outfit!  It's pretty amazing what one thing can do to your entire outfit.  We believe in the term, "less is more", so we thinking keeping it simple is better, but you can always spruce things up!  Here is our list of items that can make your outfit stand out from the crowd!

  1. Lipstick - it's pretty amazing what a simple lip color can do to your entire outfit.  Maybe match a black turtleneck and skinny jeans with a red lip?! So simple, but so cute!
  2. Hats - hats can really make you stand out from the crowd.  If you're not really a hat person, just try it out for a day and we promise you're going to be getting tons of compliments left & right!
  3. Your Hair-do - if you always wear your hair down, wear it in a cute ponytail or vise versa!  We love a basic outfit with a cute messy bun, pony tail, or even wear it in a braid.  The point of this is switch it up from your usual and it can really make a difference!
  4. Shoes - yes, shoes are a girls favorite thing, but just by switching it up and wearing converses or even heels with a basic outfit it spruces things up!
  5. Jewelry - now again, since you are wearing a simple outfit, you can go either way with your jewelry! You can keep it simple or you can wear something more detailed- that's the best part about wearing simple outfits!
What are some of your favorite ways to spruce up your basic outfits??

Must-Have Booties This Season

Booties are probably the best thing that ever existed in the fashion world- just kidding, but not really... They go with everything and anything you can think of and in the fall, they get replaced with heels as you can also wear them with a dress & tights!  Every fall/winter season, they come out with a new style of booties that we just can't wait to get our hands onto like these babies above.

When it comes to booties, you must have a pair in every color- brown, black, and tan... but that's with everything, right?  Maroon/burgundy and dark green are also coming to play with booties, so if you can get your hands on them... DO! These Sam Edelman booties are the perfect suede bootie for this fall.  If you're excited about fall/winter as much as we are, better start on your booties collection!

Kicks For A Cause: Why We Love Inkkas!

Have you heard of Inkkas? Co Founder, Karen, has been rocking these unique looking shoes and we are kind of obsessed with them. The patterns are eccentric and the shoes are really, really comfortable. The background story on Inkkas is surrounded around conscious commerce. When Inkkas was founded, the company set out to be an organization that was about more than simply making a profit. The company established itself on the principles of fair trade, authenticity and social consciousness. Due to the growing danger of deforestation, the Inkkas company decided to make a difference in the world by creating the OneShoeOneTree project. They plant a tree for every product they sell. Pretty amazing!

5 Heels That Will Pump Up Your Summer

I think it’s safe to say that shoes make the outfit. Step into Summer on the right foot this year with these five must-haves in your closet.

1 | 2 | 3 

Nude is the new ‘it’ color! Dress it up or dress it down, nude will be your best friend. A classic nude pump will be your most versatile heel in your closet so invest in a comfy pair!

Colored wedges are great to adding a pop of color to any outfit. Wedges are great with sundresses, or cuffed jeans and can easily transition you from day to night.

The ankle-strap heels are the new "pumps".  They have the classic look that will go 
with everything and anything!

Strappy heels look great with jeans and can really revolutionize a basic outfit to a ultra-trendy and sexy outfit.

Not wanting to strut in tall heels for the day? Invest in a neutral pair of casual booties for your everyday wear.

Be Radiant in 2014!

Emerald was so 2013. According to Pantone, the leading industry corporation of color, Radiant Orchid is 2014’s color of the year.  This is the perfect color to kick off the year; it’s bright, flirty and makes a bold statement!  The best way to incorporate orchid into your wardrobe is with a statement accessory, such as a bag. From a clutch, purse or tote, a colorful bag is the great everyday accessory. The wonderful thing about orchid is that it’s a great color year around. It will brighten up your winter and fall wardrobe and looks great with your colorful spring and summer outfits.

If you’re not ready to commit to a bag, try little pops of orchid in your wardrobe. A pump, dress or even a floral scarf will be an excellent way to show your fashion forward self this year. 2014 is a year of expression. Whether your personal style is preppy or boho chic, orchid will spice up any outfit. But this doesn’t have to stop at your closet doors, bring this captivating tone into your beauty regime! Sephora is starting the year with a large collection of radiant orchid products for your eyes, lips, cheeks and nails. This versatile hue works for most complexions so you will have no trouble finding a shade to compliment your skin tone and personality.

So my challenge to you this year is to wear color. Be bold, be expressive, and be radiant! Radiant Orchid is so 2014 and a marvelous addition to any fashionista’s everyday life. Share with us below your favorite orchid accessory!

6 Shoes That Should Be In Every Girl's Closet

Meet Grace!  She's a journalism major currently attending University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill!  She has a passion for fashion and has been blogging for nearly 4 years!

Read all about Grace and make sure to check out her blog,!

1. Who or what inspired you to start your blog?
"I always enjoyed dressing stylish during the start of high school. My friends and classmates would always comment on what I was wearing and ask me where I got it from. It became more common and that's when my friends encouraged me to start blogging. At first, it was more of a fun "project" that I wanted to try out and I haven't regretted any bit of it since."

2. Your favorite color combination?
"That's a toughie. On Pinterest and Instagram, I usually hashtag #favecombo on the majority of all the color combinations out there but if I had to choose... I'm crushing on orange + cobalt blue / pink + orange / anything with a pop of red. It's kind of funny because before blogging, I never really wore the color pink. Or thought to wear it with orange. It's simply amazing how blogging has given me the courage to try new things."

3. What is your major?
"I am majoring in journalism of mass communications at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill."

4. How long ago did you start your blog?
"I started my blog in 2010. Three (or almost four!) years and going strong."

5. Who is your fashion icon? Why?
"My fashion icon is Olivia Palermo because the GIRL CAN DRESS. There is not one outfit that I have seen on her that would make me think otherwise. I'm obsessed with the way she takes classy pieces such as a blazer and makes it edgy paired with leather leggings. She doesn't have just one set style but various combinations and looks that inspire me to step out of my comfort zone and try myself."

6. Who is your top 3 favorite bloggers?
"Blair Eadie from Atlantic-Pacific, Rachel Parcell from The Pink Peonies, Caitlin from A Little Dash of Darling"

7. 5 beauty products you can't live without?
"1. Revlon lipstick -- red, pink, plum. I'm kinda obsessed.
3. My Chanel lipgloss collection (does having 3 make it a collection?)
5. CoverGirl's smoky shadow blast stick (in blue + bronze)
Truth be told, I actually don't wear any face make-up because I don't really need it. Just eye make-up! It's a plus on rushed, late mornings!"

8. What do your friends think about your blog?
"They really enjoy it actually! It's quite funny when we're texting or meeting up for coffee dates and they'll be like... "love your outfit on your latest instagram. I had to check it on your blog" or make jokes like... "did you blog that outfit too?" sort of thing. It's the best to have friends that support me and visit my blog daily."

9. What are you doing when you're not in class or working on your blog?
"I love to run. I can't go three days without running or it just feels weird to me. Running keeps the stress away and helps me clear my mind."

10. What would you like to do after you graduate?
"Thinking about the future scares me, but it also excites me at the same time. I'm ready to graduate and step out into the big world, but I'm also contemplating what it is that I really want to do. I would preferably like to relocate and move to New York City, or any big city for that matter, to be a fashion stylist or even as a style editor for a fashion magazine. 'The Devil Wears Prada' really sets the tone for me there."

A special thank you to Grace for sitting down and chatting with us!

It Girl Trend Report: Fab&Fit

Working out and being fit is something that should be a priority for everyone.  Sure, we may feel lazy and unmotivated but sometimes a cute pair of running shoes or a cute workout gear can really boost your motivation to workout- we like to call this being “Fab&Fit”!  We personally like to get our motivation from our dearest friend and blogger, Lauryn Evarts’ blog, “The Skinny Confidential”.  (Meet her here!)
