Little Navy Dress

Hello, World.

With my birthday coming up, as well as RA training, shopping for cute, versatile dresses is a must. RA training is business casual, so I want to make sure I have some business-appropriate dresses and outfits to wear. I usually wear slacks, but I end up dying from heat. So this year, I decided to buy a few extra dresses, and stick mainly to those while being trained. Training is pretty active, and it’s hard to run around and do ice-breakers while wearing a dress, but I’d rather be cool, and get out of a game early, than be hot and win an ice-breaker. Anyway, I went to Kohl’s (which is slowly becoming my favorite store for more impulse-level purchases). I’m basically obsessed with the LC Lauren Conrad line. While not everything is my style, I usually find a couple gems. I admired Lauren Conrad’s style on Laguna Beach, The Hills, and now, when she’s a successful designer and author. If I was shorter, I’d probably rock the whole skinny jean and pump combo a lot more frequently!

So when I was browsing her line the other day, I came upon this cute blue dress. It’s hard to tell in the photos, but it’s a sort of jersey material. So comfortable! It’s also machine washable (which is a MUST if you live on campus). It also has some fun flirty lines that are slimming, and add dimension to an otherwise casual ensemble.

Green Leaves and Scallops

Hello, World.

Easy summer outfits are divine. When the Lilly for Target line launched my mom picked me up this green leaf crop top, I was a little hesitant because I don’t really do crop tops, but then I found these adorable scallop shorts at Kohl’s, and I thought they’d look great together. How do you work a crop top when you don’t really wear crop tops? Add high waisted shorts! This summer outfit is comfortable and cute, with girly finishes. I also love the back of the crop top!

Floral Shorts

Hello, World.

If you remember, or are just starting reading my blog, navy is my go-to color. However, this summer, I’m trying to get some summer clothing that’s more colorful. After a trip to Kohl’s, I think I was somewhat successful in this! This outfit is way more colorful than I’m used to, but I also really like it. I’m currently at my family’s cabin, and totally loving it. I begin my LSAT prep this week, but it’s fun to just relax with my family in the mountains.

I absolutely love my new sandals, and Kohl’s really surprised me. I found so many cute things! Usually i have trouble with fit because I”m so tall, but I ended up finding quite a few things I now love. The new style of sandal that seems pretty popular right now is seriously so comfortable. I wasn’t sure about the single strap, but I love Saltwater sandals, and these are actually pretty similar, but just a tad simpler.
