College Style: OOTD

Do you have that one piece of clothing that makes you feel so glam that you believe  you’re  the long-lost Kardashian sister? For me, that’s my faux-fur vest. After years and years of saying how much I wanted one, this past winter I finally joined the faux-fur vest club. But as the weather warmed up I feared that my days of walking around like a glamazon were over as my vest continually sat in in the back of my closet. That is, until I learned to style it for warmer weather. While I won’t promote wearing anything faux-fur in 90 degree weather, on breezy days styling this type of vest is as easy as sliding into a pair of high-waisted short and your favorite tank top, like I did for running errands today.

To finish off the look I wore high-top Converses, to dress the look down a bit  and my hair in my signature messy top-knot. As the summer continues I’ll be wishing for more breezy days so I can stay glam as fall approaches. Tell me what piece in your wardrobe makes you feel glamorous!

STYLE SHOUTOUT: Hanna Beth

For a college girl, the best style looks are the ones that are effortless to throw on, yet reflect a strong sense of style (because as much as sweatpants feel like heaven they’re completely void of any personality-much like your teacher’s voice droning on during a lecture).  Hanna Beth has been a style icon of mine for a quite awhile now and is the perfect muse for effortless looks. Once known as “Barbie Beth”, she’s a dark-haired, tattooed beauty, and has made her way as a model. Even out of the camera’s eye she’s always picture-perfect embodying the perfect blend of glam-rocker with dark lips and lots of layers.  For translating her style in your own wardrobe start with a wide-brim felt hat, which is completely on-trend for this fall, and a slouchy beanie. Also, pick pieces that are unique like a studded bag, or faux fur coat. However you mix your pieces then, it will look effortless but will be completely “you”.

Take a look at some of Hanna Beth’s look for this Style Shoutout.

Party Time: A Coachella-Inspired Night

BAYELLA-PARTY_2

I’ve never personally been to Coachella, but for a summer party the musical festival is the perfect  inspiration. The floral crowns, eclectic environment, and a “dress-as-you-please” mentality are the perfect elements for a fun night-whether it’s in Indio California, or your own backyard. This past weekend I hosted a girls night with Coachella as the main inspiration. So throw on your festival outfit and check out Bay’ella!
