Get The Look // Pinterest Edition

A simple and slightly overdone grunge inspired outfit I know. But I can't resist plaid, studs, and classic rock.  I think that we all get a lot of inspiration from places like Pinterest and Tumblr but sometimes I find it hard to transfer between the internet and my own wardrobe so I thought I would do a style post on the subject. This first look is pretty simple and could probably be made with things that you already have in your wardrobe! No plaid shorts? Tie a flannel around your waist and you are good to go. 

Pinterest Ideas 1

Cutoff jean shorts

Studded purse

Trendy Tartan Jean Shorts. Tumblr Size XS. kids 14 or 1. Red Plaid,...

How I would kill to look like this. The hair is just lush and then obviously her style is on. point. I can't wait for fall/winter fashion to get kicking down here in the south because I absolutely adore fall colors and sweaters and thigh highs and tights gah <3

Hopefully this gives you an idea of how to take an image you love from pinterest and turning it into an outfit that you can wear on the daily. In case you can't tell I am absolutely i t c h i n g for fall fashion to swing back around. I spend hours browsing the fall lines as they drop at Urban, Missguided, Motel, H&M, etc. Maroon is going to make a huge appearance in my wardrobe this fall now that I can wear it without it being associated to the college in my old town.

In other news I have some amazing street style blog ideas in the works right now so hopefully I will be able to get that up and running in the near future. It has been a trip getting used to juggling my classes, studying, photography, and keeping up with my blog so bear with me for a while as I get settled in but I am doing my best I swear :)

Style Snapshot: Dorm Room Life

Poncho- SammyDress
Leggings- Forever 21

Sometimes I wear an adorable outfit and class and homework gets in the way of capturing it during daylight hours so I snapped a few quick shots at about 1 am before crawling into bed (in the poncho whoops) to sleep before my morning class. Sadly this has been happening a lot, I wear a great outfit and don't make it out to shoot before the light is gone. So I am a bit behind on my blogging but working on it! Hopefully I can get some stuff together before next week :) Much love <3

You're a Doll, You are Flawless

I am having so much fun shooting in new locations every time I shoot at my new school. The scenery here is absolutely gorgeous- aside from the fact that it rains nearly every day it is always beautiful around here. And every part of campus seems to have something different to offer a photographers eye.

Skirt- Thrifted
Necklace- GemJunkie

This tee is one I got back in the beginning of the summer but the color just screamed fall to me so I waited until september to bust this bad boy out. Poket Roket has some of the most creative designs for pocket tees I have ever seen. I also have a tee from them with a gorgeous gold and orange leaf on it that is going to be incredible once the leaves change. Their tees are so so soft I could sleep in them forever. Also found this skirt at goodwill and the print screamed at me so I had to grab it. I think the tribal went perfectly with the elephants on the extended pocket.

Dear, You Look So Lost

Tee- Gift
Shorts- Thrifted
Thigh Highs- American Apparel
Backpack- Target

A quick outfit I threw together for one of my 8 am classes last week. I am shocked I even had the energy to put on thigh highs that early in the morning. The AA thigh highs are like sweaters for your legs so thick and long I am in l o v e. And this tee from my best friend back in Arizona is a dream. I find myself reaching for it at least once a week. whoops. 

These 8 am classes are the worst on my sleep schedule. But in other more exciting news I got a job at H&M! Hello employee discount <3 So I can guarantee some more H&M will be showing up in my wardrobe. As for right now I have a seven page paper due on monday and I haven't even chosen a topic yet so I should probably get started on that... until next time!

Life with Liz: Settling in at Belmont

Three weeks ago I packed up everything I owned into my little Subaru and drove 900 miles across the south east to my new home at Belmont University. A place that instantly became somewhere that I am thoroughly in love with. The black sheep of the college family you could say, but Belmont is easily the best decision I have ever made. 

But college is stressful as hell so thankfully I got my yoga mat and my crystals to keep me grounded.

And from last weeks outfit post my friend Jalon stumbled upon me in the back corner of campus taking elaborate selfies... whoops.  

The roommates and I went to a throwback prom 90's grunge style and awkwardly everything I wore was normal everyday wear for me. I am thoroughly infatuated with 90's grunge at the moment. It has become my comfort zone easy to throw together before class. Or prom apparently. 

And then I had an amazing opportunity last week to shoot a small concert full of bands from my school and a few of the shots are my absolute favorite pictures of all time. Very proud of them so hopefully I will be able to shoot gigs like this more often to work on my photography! 

I will be back with outfits once I finish all of my obnoxious amounts of homework but for now this is what I have been up to!

I'm Just Makin False Calls

Currently lying in bed recovering from an AMAZING show last night. I had my first experience with concert photography and now I'm addicted. I will definitely be making a post tomorrow with some of those pictures and links to all the amazingly talented musicians who played last night. Blew me away. 

Can we talk about how beautiful a backdrop this campus is? 

Jumpsuit- Vintage
Boots- DSW
Hat- Ebay

There is a cute little vintage shop right across the street from my school and it is dangerous. dangerous I tell you. This jumpsuit is the absolute perfect in between season piece I absolutely adore it. Plus it is like a soft cotton material so basically the most comfortable thing I have ever worn in my entire life. <3
