Spring Fever Must Haves!

As of yesterday, it is officially SPRING! I have been waiting for this day since the first snow hear in Charlottesville. Spring is the time of year where there’s fresh flowers everywhere, sundresses, and outdoor activities that last more than 30 minutes!

Spring style is my favorite because it is so effortless, you don’t have to wear 5 different layers. You can throw on a dress, necklace, and pair of sandals & be good to go! So I’ve decided to list some of my favorites from UOIOnline.com to give y’all some spring inspiration! Also, if you use the code KERRYMAR online, you will receive 10% off your entire purchase!

Happy Shopping!

Back To School Must Haves!

Seriously, I never thought in a million years that I would miss the back-to-school life, but oh boy do I! August has me craving the back to school shopping and the excitement to see all my college friends! I thought it would be fun to do a little post on some back to school items (or in my case, just items to love this year) that I feel are necessities!

Back To School Must Haves!
1. BAGS! I thinks it’s important to have at least two options for your school bag! For me, I used my North Face backpack for everyday classes. It holds literally everything I could ever need! On days when I may have had a presentation or interview, I always used one of my large Longchamps. It looks professional but still allows you to carry whatever you may need! Also, don’t forget a case for your laptop! You will be carrying it all over and don’t want it to get damages! This is my favorite laptop sleeve from Kate Spade as it has a cute print but also protects my baby!
2. SHOES! The same goes for your shoe collection! Make sure you have a wide assortment of options. For me that was about 55 options but whatever…. I always found myself wearing my trusty riding boots the majority of the time. You can dress them up or wear them with your leggings! Always make sure to have a durable pair of flats around as well, as they are perfect for your business casual needs. And of course, invest in a good pair of sneakers for those days when you are running all over campus or you know… if you do that strange thing called going to the gym!
3. FASHION! Now lets be honest, you’re going to bring everything you own, that’s just a given. But two pieces that I have found extremely helpful all these years is a hat and some form of a button down (my favorite is a chambray shirt!) I love the chambray shirt because you can wear it over your t-shirt to portray a more put together outfit rather than just looking like you fell out of bed (which you did). A hat is a given for those days where your brush or shower just isn’t happening! Try fun colors to really make it more of a statement rather than something you had to throw on! Lastly, get a great pair of sunglasses! Get some that are a more classic shape so you can wear them to multiple occasions!
4. MISCELLANEOUS! As a former college girl who still needs to have every single day planned out, an agenda is a must! My favorites are from Lilly Pulitzer and May Designs for all their bright prints! Headphones are an ultimate must! They will come in handy when you need to tune everything out for that hour you have left before your paper is due! A portable charger will be your life saver at some point in time. You don’t want to be that person who is locked out with a dead phone and can’t find a single person to help (it happens, trust me). And last but not least, a water bottle for everyday of your life because, HYDRATION!

Get The Look // Taylor Swift

We really can’t deny that Taylor Swift has been KILLING IT with her style these days! Whether she is on the red carpet or going to the grocery store, her outfits are always on point! So of course I had to do another look for less when it comes to this super casual but sleek look she rocked! It’s perfect for those chilly days that you have tons of errands to get done as it has lots of layers but isn’t too bulky as you move around.

sNOw More!

Another day, another snow storm for Southern Virginia…. Here I was hoping that Spring was right around the corner. I do have to admit though, the first flurries of snow are one of my favorite things. They just feel so magical that it’s difficult not to love them, until they turn into a foot of snow and everything shuts down.

Thank goodness I have this amazing knit headband by Monroe & Harlow to keep my tiny ears nice and toasty!  I have been getting a lot of use out of this bad boy throughout this winter, it is truly one of the best gifts I’ve received (shout out to my big sisters!) Monroe & Harlow have so many styles and prints to choose from, y’all should definitely go check them out! Especially (hopefully) with Spring coming soon, they have tons of beautiful floral prints that are light weight and perfect to accessorize those sun dresses!

OOTD!

I can’t be the only one over the “snow” already. In Virginia it isn’t even snow anymore, it’s completely frozen solid…(fun fact: I busted my butt straight on the snow and already have a bruise.) Well any who, today was the first day that I made my way out of the house and completely some errands which of course led me to Target. This has to be one of my favorite outfits. It is super comfy but still looks like I have my life together & haven’t been spending the past 4 days in bed watching Criminal Minds on Netflix!

A Bohemian Winter!

Recently, I have been really loving adding touches of bohemian chic to my wardrobe. Celebrities like Sienna Miller and Vanessa Hudgens have been rocking the boho look for years and know how to go all out or just have a slight boho vibe to their looks. I was recently on pinterest and found a photo of Sienna Miller looking so classic and cool that I had to try my own version of it!

Here is the image of the lovely Sienna that sparked my interest!

Get The Look // Kristin Cavallari

I’ve mentioned it before, but Kristin Cavallari is my go to fashionista! She has a simplistic chicness to her look that I just really relate too! She never goes overboard with accessories and colors but isn’t afraid incorporate bold pieces!
I wanted to do a get the look for less because some of us can not afford the pricey designers that celebrities can but still want to rock the sam style! This is one of my favorite looks that she has worn in the past. It will be perfect for those winter days that aren’t as harsh in the cold temps!
