DAY 108

So the obsession with JustFab continues. 

It's been literally a week and I've already ordered (and received!) my SECOND pair of JustFab boots! I actually featured these in my last post, but forgot to talk about them. I think JustFab is my new favourite website. It's gotten to the point where I've created like 3 separate accounts in order to benefit from their first-pair-for-$20-free-shipping promo. I love their wide shoe and handbag selection, how on trend each item is, and how fast their shipping service is! I ordered these on Monday of last week and received them on Saturday... that's less than a week and it was free shipping! 

And no, I am not affiliated with JustFab. 
Although, if they wanted me to be, I wouldn't object.

DAY 107

Hello hello! I totally and completely forgot to upload yesterday seeing as I was in bed watching youtube videos and eating obscene amounts of quiche all day.. it was Sunday. That's the only explanation for my behaviour I can come up with. 

I did have a meeting in the middle of the day (highly inconvenient, as it required A) me getting out of bed and B) me putting on pants), so I had an ok outfit for at least an hour of my day! It was uncharacteristically hot yesterday, so I figured it was a good opportunity to break out the high waisted shorts and crop top at least once more. RIP summer.

DAY 106

Today was my sorority's philanthropy event, in which we hosted a tea and trunk show at our house. Since parents were invited, we all dressed up. This is my "parent-appropriate" fall outfit, complete with riding boots and a high-necked dress. Nailed it.

Cardigan- Garage
Riding Boots- Enzo Angiolini

DAY 105

For some contrast, I wore these light-wash ripped jeans with my more elegant over-the-knee boots. It was the perfect Friday look because it was comfortable but also cute. I wore it to class and also out to dinner with my mother who came to visit! It was sooo nice to eat something other than salads, easy mac, and instant oatmeal and to catch up with my mom. And have her bring the essentials (I.E food and clothes hehe).

DAY 104

This vintage baseball tee I took from my dad's closet right before I left for UVA has to be my favourite article of clothing I own. Not only is it ridiculously comfortable and perfect for lazy days (or basically any day of the week, lets be honest), but I absolutely LOVE the vintage-retro feel! Pair it with leggings for the fall or with high waisted shorts in the summer and you're good to go!

DAY 103

I went with a very preppy look today, pairing an old striped button down with amazing puffy sleeves (not sure if they're quite visible in the photos) with skinny jeans and oxfords. I love these shoes because they are slightly masculine and balance out the feminine top well! I think they would be super cute with dresses, too.

Also, remember those pendant heart necklaces that everyone and their mother used to have circa eighth grade? I found mine and found it worked with this look because it doesn't really stand out, so you can't tell it's a tacky heart pendant, you only see a silver shape at the end of a long chain!

Oxfords- my mother's old ones (probably from Italy)

DAY 102

One of my favourite colours is burnt orange- not just cause I go to UVA- so I love to incorporate as much of it as I can into my outfits, especially in the fall! Today I paired some ripped skinnies with a white oversized top, and added an orange tank underneath for a pop of colour. 

Also, if you are reading this and didn't know, I have an instagram! The username is lavieenmode55, go follow me for fashion and photography pics do it do it do it do it

DAY 101

Today I paired my favourite flannel with some white skinnies and ankle booties. The white adds a brightness and crispness to an otherwise fall-style outfit. Who says you can't wear white after Labor Day?

DAY 100

A typical Sunday outfit is generally code for a lazy outfit. It being Sunday and all, today was no exception: I didn't have to leave the house except to go to a meeting, so I basically lounged around in leggings and an oversized linen button down (yes I wore it to the beach all summer, and yes I plan on wearing it every season in some way or another because it's so damn comfortable) watching 30 Rock all day. 

I found this old yellow shirt with a braided neckline (I tried to include a close up in the last pic, but I don't think it's that visible) and used it to brighten up the outfit a little. Love these knock-off Keds from Target; I have them in a lot of colours cause they're so versatile and cheap! 

ALSO: today marks the 100th day I've been keeping up with this style portfolio!! It's probably the longest I've been dedicated to anything, actually, and I think it's really helped me with figuring out what I want to do with my life. I love writing and I love fashion, so I'll be looking for internships combining the two this summer! I also wanted to say that when I started this in July (or June, I can't really remember at the moment), I did it purely as a personal portfolio and style collection. I didn't tell any of my friends or family that I was doing it- I still haven't, really, except for a few people who found out- because I wanted it to be more private. So when I started getting emails and even a few comments from perfect strangers, I was really grateful and completely shocked that people actually were reading my blog! Thank you so much to anyone reading this who has kept up with my ramblings, it means a lot.

DAY 99

I've been loving wearing this army jacket lately- I don't care if it's last season, it goes with pretty much everything, is a size too large so I can wear it with leggings, and has basically become my staple outerwear. I found it on supersale this summer at the mall in Athens, so I knew I had to get it! 

Army jacket- Stradivarius
Black long sleeve shirt- Old Navy
Jeggings- American Eagle
