royal blue moto and stripes

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great start to your week; I know that I have. It is nice to be back from spring break and back into the swing of things. Although I didn't go anywhere special that consisted of white sandy beaches and bright blue water, I enjoyed my 'staycation' at home with friends and family. For today's look, I quickly threw together a royal blue 3/4 sleeve crop top with black high waisted Robert Rodriquez pants. Continuing with the blue theme, I also paired a royal faux leather moto jacket and black with royal blue sole oxfords to complete the look. For more on the look please see below!

rebecca minkoff x college fashionista

Being that it was so nice on Wednesday, I took a lunch stroll and had to capture some pictures of my outfit. As you could tell, I found two awesome locations within a few blocks of the Tommy Hilfiger office. For the day, I decided to wear a full skirt striped dress with sequin detailing a the top. But, to mix it up a bit, I went with a crisp white button front shirt to put over the sequins to give it more of that office look. Paired with the dress and top, I wore patent leather oxfords and a biker jacket. As for accessories, I have recently subscribed to Rocksbox, where they send you pieces of jewelry to borrow for the month. It is such a great site for jewelry lovers.

On Wednesday night, I had the opportunity to meet Rebecca Minkoff at an event that College Fashionista held. It was a great time for me to ask any questions that I had along with listening to the answers that she had for others. Along the same lines, it was a great for me to see some of the product that she was offering and the Spring trends. Below are some questions that CF (college fashionista) students had and RM (Rebecca Minkoff) answers.
CF Q: What should one wear to festivals?
RM A: If you are going to a festival, be sure not to overdo it. Wear a cute crop top or a denim short but make sure you have those highlight pieces. Once you have those highlight pieces build your look around that item and you are set to go!
CF Q: What advice to you have for a fashion student trying to build a career in the industry?
RM A: Intern when you have the opportunity. Internships are the most valuable thing for a student because you are able to apply the skills from class in the workplace and you are getting hands on experience.
MY Q: I have a fashion blog and know and understand that there are so many fashion bloggers out there; with that being said, what do you feel sets one blogger apart from the other?
RM A: Obviously there has to be some uniqueness to the blogger. But it is more so about finding the white space that no one has delved into yet. That space may not be an area that you are comfortable in; that's okay, but just try it out. If it works, great, but if not, move on to the next white space. 

Some of my favorite Rebecca Minkoff pieces in for Spring!

donut worry

Happy Thursday Everyone! I cannot even begin to tell you how happy I am that it has been twenty degrees hotter (if not more), this week. I have had this fun donut sweatshirt for about a year now and haven't found the opportunity to post it on the blog; today I had the perfect opportunity! This sweatshirt is more so for running errands or hanging out around the house. I personally would not wear this out for a night on the town but to each is own! With this sweatshirt, I decided to pair boyfriend jeans and classic high top converses. As an additional accessory, I wanted to add pop by wearing a peach fitted hat and a light pink faux leather moto jacket.
