Did my nails today; used orange and red (although they look pink and neon) to make them fall-ish. Halfway through I realized that I've done the same design before but with pink and green! I marbled the colors with a tiny dotting tool. I like that it's psychadelic but prettier than water marbling, which I am personally not a fan of. Keep it classy! Allie

Just a quick outfit of the day post 🙂

Today I wore a new black dress (I seriously have so many little black dresses. It’s a good thing they’re perfect for every occasion. I think that’s an amazing phenomenon.)



I went with an all-black look because… well, I didn’t really have a reason. I was just in the mood for a subdued tone.

Action shot!

I got this dress from Kohl’s; it’s from Lauren Conrad’s line which I LOVE. On this dress I particularly like the bow accent and the pleated skirt.


It’s the ultimate figure flatterer. Yes that is a word now.


Keep it classy



Last week, I planned and photographed THREE whole posts to share… but I never got around to actually writing the posts. So I decided to combine them into one giant post and share them all at once! Wee!

The first one is actually a second installment in my “How to style ‘those’ shirts” series. This time I styled my club shirt with a brown belt and capris. Before, I discounted this outfit as just another version of a t-shirt and jeans. But when I saw people wearing outfits like this at school, I realized that it can be a very polished look when executed properly.



And it works best with a braid or ponytail:



Next is probably one of my favorite outfits I have ever worn.



I had been waiting a long time to wear this poncho and this skirt, so when I got the opportunity to wear one and the idea dawned on me to wear them together- I was kind of overwhelmed with excitement.

I actually had to dress as a hippie for a project, and that’s what I wore. Except I forgot to mention in my presentation that I was dressed up. So no one noticed anything out of the ordinary.


Some arm candy



Finally, I wore an outfit on Friday that, again, I was anxious to wear. Do you ever get that way? Really excited to wear all the cute clothes in your closet but you have to pace yourself and plan your outfits carefully? I love utilizing that feeling to be creative. Anyway, this is my final outfit for this post:



It’s my favorite skirt paired with a fabulous velvet shirt that I forgot I owned but got excited about when I found it in my closet (I love that feeling too)!


A closeup so you can see the texture of the shirt



I even put my hair in my favorite updo- milkmaid braids- perfect for second-day hair!

That’s it for this post… I tried to keep it long and not ramble too much about any one outfit.

Until next time!


Keep it classy


Did some nail art today for the first time in a while. I used some more subdued colors in preparation for fall and put a matte top coat on some metallic polish for a velvety effect. I'm pretty pleased with the outcome... And painting my nails was very relaxing. :)


I just wanted to post some pictures of what I wore today and talk about it a little.



The focus of this outfit was obviously the skirt. I found it at Goodwill and when I saw it there I knew I had to get it. It was one of those “I never even knew I was searching for you but I have found you” moments. I was kind of inspired by grunge style, so paired it with an almost-but-not-really punk t-shirt and some black boots.



The fabric is some pretty heavy-duty material and it’s going to be great during the winter when it’s too cold to wear short skirts but I’m still too stubborn to wear pants.


One of my favorite things about this skirt/shirt combo is how thin it makes my waist look…


On a scale of one to me, how excited are you to transition into your fall wardrobe? I know I’m wearing my knit poncho to school one day this week. Before it gets back up to the 80s. Which could happen any day.


Keep it classy
