First Day of My Last Year

          Today I started senior year!! It's both excited and nerve-racking! I want to move on and go to college, but I'm also really scared about finding THE college and getting enough scholarship money. My first semester classes will be nice though...senior math/statistics, English 12-3, French 3, and yearbook. All fairly enjoyable classes that seem pretty chill.

On to some more important things...


The runways for this season seem to have been exceptionally innovative and filled with trends we haven't seen for a while. Here are some I definitely have to try before the weather gets warmer...

Head to Toe Denim
Denim has become the hottest fabric of the year…so how else to make a
statement in it, than to wear it all over? I just bought a denim button-down shirt
at Banana Republic that I am excited to wear with a new pair of jeans.

(Ralph Lauren)

Jewel-Tone Velvet
Velvet has made a come-back! When I was six I had a velvet little black dress...eleven
years later, the same look is on the fall runways. Although, it's gotten a bit of a make-over
since the 90's...at Ralph Lauren it was more elegant on long dresses paired with floral accents.


Bulky Sweaters with Delicate Dresses
My favorite thing to do when making new outfits is creating contrast and that's what draws my attention to the looks at the ADAM show. Dresses where flowy and elegant, while they were worn with thick sweaters.  


The best way to wear this crazy print is on one item, and the rest of the outfit kept simple and chic.
I am loving all the shoes and handbags that are coming out of this trend!


The Tweed Mini-Dress
Thanks to Coco, Chanel is the master when it comes to tweed. This season Lagerfeld incorporated
 it into much more than just jackets. The best of the collection was the tweed mini-dress trimmed with fur.

Fair Isle Knits
There's nothing to get you into a cool-weather mood than festive fair isle sweaters.
Seen at D&G, this print would be fun to wear layered, belted, or with last fall's knee-high boots.
