OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

 

Let’s Go Nationals!

Good morning and happy Tuesday beauties! As I’m sure you all know, last week started the MLB Playoffs, and this year much to many peoples’ surprise and even more peoples’ excitement, the Nationals made it! While I have to admit I have never been a die hard baseball fan, I do love going to the games and (as I’m sure you can imagine) especially the playoff games! So, we know the Nationals had a bit of a rough start last week, losing the first two of their five game series against the San Francisco Giants, but last night they finally pulled it together and won 4-1! Wahoo! I am really hoping and preying that they can just keep it going until this weekend so Hilary and I can go to yet another game!

But, now hat I am done rambling about what I am hoping to do this weekend… This week’s Trendy Tuesday is a chic and stylish outfit that is perfect for a fall baseball game! I t may not be the most fashionista approved ensemble, but I cannot stand when girls look like they’re going to a college football game in their sundresses and heels! This is a baseball game, ladies… this is not a fashion show… (and trust me, there are VERY few times in life I will ever say that!) So, without further ado, here is this week’s Trendy Tuesday… Nationals style!

Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday Washington Nationals Style

Tops: Nationals T-Shirt, $35; J.Crew Chambray, $78 $66 – On Sale Now!; Pants: Only, $50; Boots: Tory Burch, $495; Watch: Michael Kors, $225; Hat: MLB, $19.

Is that not the perfect game day outfit or what?! Well, I know that I am loving it, and (fingers crossed!) I will be wearing it to the game this weekend if the Nats can keep it together for two more games and continue on in the tournament! So, if you are going to be there, let me know! I’d love to see ya and your beautifully shining face! :) I hope y’all have an amazing Tuesday, and enjoy the weather! It is going to be gorgeous again today!

Trendy Tuesday: Black + White

 

Back to The Basics With a Chic Black + White Ensemble

Good morning and happy Tuesday everyone! I hope y’all had a fantastic Monday yesterday, and you’re ready for the better part of the week to start (I mean anything is better than Monday, right?).  Well, for the first time in what seems like forever (I really am sorry about that guys, it was a crazy summer with the pool and all of the stuff that went along with that!) we have a fantastic outfit of the day! I’m so glad this is the first one to get me back into the swing of things, because Trendy Tuesday is probably one of my favorite days for OOTD posts (other than Workout Wednesday of course, because I am super lazy lately and just love workout clothes because they’re so comfy…)!  So, today we have a super chic little ensemble of a black and white top from Tory Burch paired with a super trendy pair of leather shorts!

Outfit Of The Day: Trendy Tuesday - Chic Black And White Ensemble

Top: Tory Burch, $350; Shorts: J. Crew, $450;  Shoes: Saint Laurent (YSL), $795; Clutch: Valentino, $855; Bracelet: Mulberry, $215;  Earrings: Jessica Simpson, $18.

If you didn’t notice, this lovely ensemble was inspired by my friend Hilary’s outfit from Saturday night (see yesterday’s Motivational Monday for a picture!).  I absolutely loved her super cute outfit, and I am dying for a chic little pair of these amazing leather shorts (we know what’s on my wish list now…)! But, what do you think of this amazing outfit?! You could really wear it for so many occasions… Whether you’re having lunch with an old friend, going on a date with someone special, or hitting the town with the girls on Friday night, this outfit is perfect for them all!

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday today, and get ready for tomorrow’s Workout Wednesday… I hope you’re as excited as I am!

OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful day and you’re enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve had today (that is, if your day has been as nice as mine has!). This is my last week of undergrad (well, college in general actually because I am not going to grad school!), and I am starting to feel a little sad about leaving this wonderful place I have called home for the past four years.  With graduation approaching this Friday and Saturday, it is all getting to be really real lately.  I guess I better get ready though, because whether I want it to or not, it’s still coming! I have been on the job hunt for quite some time, but I have really been cracking down lately.  While I would love love love to work in fashion (as you all know!) I am starting to really open myself up to other options as well, just to get my foot in the door somewhere, network with all kinds of people (you never know who they know!), and get some real experience under my belt.  So, I’m hoping something comes up soon, but until then I will just have to keep trying and keeping a positive attitude – eventually I have to get a job, right?! But, if any of you know anyone who is hiring or have any suggestions/ideas as far as a job lead, I would love to hear from you! Please email me at kristen.booth06@gmail.com with any comments or suggestions!

But, now that I just rambled on forever (we’re not getting any younger here, Kristen!)… Let’s finally get to today’s outfit of the day! This week’s Trendy Tuesday is the perfect outfit for a fun spring or summer day.  I am loving these lace/crochet shorts – I really need to get a pair! And these colors are just so fun and summery… They make me so excited for pool days and barbecues! So, here is this week’s Trendy Tuesday outfit: Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday   Top: Alexander Terekhov, $749; Shorts: Alice + Olivia, $275; Shoes: Corso Cosmo, $69; Necklace: Stephan & Co., $24; Bracelets: kate spade new york, $48 (turquoise) Valentino, $545 (gold) Bauble Bar, $66 $34 (coral) On Sale Now!; Earrings: Stella & Dot, $24; Nail Polish: OPI, $8.99 – Bubble Bath (neutral) and Where Did Suzi’s Man Go? (Coral)

What do you guys think? Is that fun or what?! I don’t know about you, but all of these items (well except the nail polish… I already have those two and love them for the summertime!) are definitely going on my wishlist of summer items! Let me know what you think of this outfit and I would love any suggestions you may have for me! I hope y’all are having a great week so far!

Good morning and happy Tuesday, beauties! I hope you are all having a great week so far, and you’re not stuck in any more snow! I don’t know about you, but I am so over all of this snow… Not only is it a pain in the butt, but it is really starting to take a toll on my skin and hair (more on that later, though…)!

But, enough complaining! Today we have a phenomenal little ensemble for this week’s Trendy Tuesday.  This fun dress can be dressed up for a day of work or dressed down for a day of running around and being productive! Either way, this dress is absolutely fabulous and is sure to turn the heads of everyone you run into.

Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday

 

Dress: MICHAEL by Michael Kors, $175; Blazer: H&M, $41; Shoes: Valentino, $1,075; Bag: Prada, $2,330; Bracelet: C. Wonder, $45; Ring: David Yurman, $900; Earrings: Kenneth Cole, $9.

Is this outfit fabulous or what?! I know that I, personally, would kill for this outfit (or really just any part of it!), but unfortunately for me, none of these items are really in my budget at the moment. Sad day for Kristen… But, with graduation around the corner, it is only a matter of time before I have a job and can start working towards fun things that I’ll be able to splurge on!

I hope you ladies have a wonderful day and stay warm in the midst of the wintery tundra that has made its way back into our life. Stay strong though, it’s almost over! What do you think of this outfit? What is on your wishlist of designer, splurge items right now? Let me know in the comments below… I may want to add them to my list also!

Transformation Tuesday: Makeover Madness

Okay, so I know this is long overdue, but as I told you guys, when I was home for Christmas break I took my dad shopping in an attempt to improve his fashion sense and just overall fashion.  His go-to look has always been jeans that are too big for him, with either a short or long sleeved plaid button-up, or a sweatshirt paired with some awful sneakers to pull the whole look together.  This has been my dad’s signature look for as long as I can remember. Well, I decided that instead of just making fun of his terrible shoes that even the gentlemen in the nursing home would judge, I would try to do something about this travesty, and I took him out for a day of shopping to get some new clothes!

After a lot of nervousness on his part, and a mall full of people finishing up their last minute Christmas shopping (my dad already hates shopping and crowds, so this was two extra things I had working against me!), we finally made it out with a pair of jeans that actually fit him, a pair of nice khaki pants (that also fit…), and two button-ups that include absolutely no plaid! The best purchase he made on that lovely Friday was a pair of shoes. He got a pair of brown leather shoes that look so nice on him and that actually give him a little bit of style! He actually liked everything he got and has been doing a little bit better about swapping out his old gear for his new clothes and shoes that he now has.

He also knows that this is just the beginning of his complete makeover, and he will be buying more clothes to upgrade the wardrobe when I am home in a week for Spring Break, and then his wardrobe will be complete after the summer is over when I am living back at home! So, here are some photos of the before and after look!

Before:

After:

That’s just one of the outfits he got during our shopping spree, but already so much better and those were just the small changes! What do you think of his transformation?

Happy Tuesday Beautiful!

Good morning gorgeous! I hope your morning is going well so far and your day is starting out fabulously! Today we have a little pop of color in our Trendy Tuesday! Since I am really trying to incorporate more color into my wardrobe (I am just always drawn to black!), I figured what better way to get a little motivation than to add it into my OOTD’s also! So, let me know what you think and how you add a little bit of color into your outfits!

Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday

How is that for some color?! I absolutely love this look, so I just need to make myself buy more things like these (which, knowing me, shouldn’t be a problem!).  Speaking of color… Diane von Furstenberg‘s line that debuted on Sunday at NYFW is full of color and amazing patterns and it is absolutely amazing! I seriously could not love it more, so if you haven’t seen any of her new pieces, check out my blog post on DewdropDC’s blog!

Spring is my favorite season, and with a good amount of time until we get there, but as I was walking from my car to my class this morning, all I could think about was how I could not wait until the temperatures were at least above zero and out of the negatives! So, with that being said, here is this week’s Trendy Tuesday
