College Outfit of the Week

Hi loves! This week, I wanted to share with you what I wear on an average (pretty rainy) full week of class. Ranging from cute to complete bum… & everything in between! It gets hard throughout the winter months to dress up for class instead of just throwing on a hoodie and leggings. But, for some reason I always feel more productive if I get up and make myself look presentable, anyone else?? I hope this gives you some inspiration, if you’ve been feeling stuck with your style lately!

MONDAY


Today I went for a more edgy and laid back look. It was so rainy, but like 50 degrees, so I didn’t want to wear my big winter coat.

I wore these black ripped jeans from Hollister, that I’ve literally had forever. I paired them with a graphic tee from Forever21, and this black with gold detailing bomber jacket from Express! I then wore my favorite boots, Doc Martens! They’re the perfect shoes for a rainy day.

For jewelry, I wore thin gold hoops and gold studs from Forever21. They went well with the gold detailing on the jacket. And then I wore my Calvin Klein watch, and my Pandora crown ring. Lastly, I wore my “happy” gold bar necklace from FabFitFun!

TUESDAY


Today I had to dress business casual, because I had chapter later that night for Delta Zeta!

I wore these black, cropped dress pants from Marshalls! They were only $12! I then paired it with this black and white striped peplum from Marshalls too. Only $8! For shoes, I am wearing my Franco Sarto black leather loafers. From (guess where?) Marshalls!

For jewelry, I am wearing this necklace from Sabika jewelry that I received at a Pittsburgh blog babe meet up! I’m also wearing these chunky diamonds from Charming Charlie’s!

WEDNESDAY


So today I was super bummy and comfy! I had an event later for my sorority called Big Man on Campus and we got shirts for it, so that is what I’m wearing here!

My leggings are from Marshalls, they’re the brand Yogalicious. I then wore my pink and grey Nikes, and they’re from Marshalls too! Guys I mean it when I say I literally get everything from there!

For jewelry I didn’t wear much, just my Pandora ring and the same diamond studs I showed earlier!

THURSDAY


Today I was casual, but still cute! I wore gym clothes to my first class, then changed and actually got ready for my second class and for the rest of the day!

I wore this super soft, chenille, gray and white striped sweater from American Eagle. I love this sweater because its oversized but still stylish. It also has almost a bell sleeve (is that what you call it?) that is so cute! I then paired it with these ripped and distressed jeans from American Eagle as well. And then I’m wearing these awesome shoes from Steve Madden. They are so comfortable, but also super cute and not your average sneaker.

For jewelry, I kept it really simple again with my Pandora ring, “happy” gold bar necklace from FabFitFun, and studs!

FRIDAY


By this time of the week it was so rainy and dreary outside. I decided to still dress up because when ya look good, ya feel good!

I wore this light blue, cold shoulder, slouchy sweater from Pacsun. I wore a black, haltered bralette from Victorias Secret under it. I then wore my black ripped jeans from Hollister. And then of course I wore my Doc Martens, classic.

For jewelry I wore my Sabika necklace again and the blue studs from Charming Charlie’s!


 

& thats a wrap! I like to be comfortable but still cute and put together for class. I also realized that I literally buy everything from Marshalls, but I’m totally okay with it.

I’m also so ready for Spring & Summer clothes. I do love sweaters and being cozy while its rainy, but I want dresses and the sun beating down on me so bad! Anyone else??

I hope you all have a great week! As always, thank you for reading!!

VALENTINES DAY OUTFIT IDEAS + HOW TO STYLE A WOODEN WATCH

Hi babes! How have you been? Todays post is so fun! I am going to show you two Valentine’s Day inspired outfit ideas, featuring my beautiful JORD Cassia wooden watch. I loved picking outfits for this post because light pink is one of my favorite colors… and Valentine’s Day is just the time to wear pink!

OUTFIT 1: DRESSY & DREAMY


Okay so, I wasn’t a big fan of jumpsuits, until NOW. I went out last week to Marshalls, not looking for anything, but of course leaving with everything. Marshalls has the greatest deals, I can never resist! This vertical stripe and floral jumpsuit was only $20. A STEAL! It has a cut out right under the tie, a low V neck, and frilly short sleeves. It’s a perfect mix of flirty and fun for Valentines Day. I paired this jumpsuit with these chunky blush pink heels to compliment the pink in the floral pattern.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Cassia watch matches this aesthetic flawlessly! It has walnut colored wood with rose accents. The walnut wood is a mix of pale brown and dark chocolate brown. The mixed hues gives the watch dimension and a look of texture. The rose accents along the band, as well as on the face of the watch, go perfectly with the florals on the jumpsuit. I have been so into rose gold and gold jewelry recently, so this fits into my collection so well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OUTFIT 2: COMFORTABLE & COZY


Not everyone goes out on Valentines Day, so I wanted to add something more casual but still festive and cute! I bought this sweater around the holidays, from Marshalls (who would’ve guessed that one?) and I’m still not over it! The pink chenille is perfect for Valentines Day, and the bows add a girly flare. It’s so warm too!! I paired the sweater with these gray washed jeans from Hollister, but these could be swapped out for some black leggings too. This sweater would also look really cute with ripped jeans or even a skirt! I then chose my Doc Martens because the shiny sheen adds a little something extra to the outfit. Also because they’re my favorite boots ever… and I literally wear them with everything. Again, the rose color on the face of the watch goes so well with the pink sweater. I also love how the numbers on the watch are Roman numerals, rather than a traditional number dial. It adds a more sophisticated and chic look. And… now just realizing the watch matches my glasses too… WOW I love it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also! You can get your watch or watch box engraved. How awesome is that? I love anything with my initials. I feel like it makes the item more personal and special. This would be a perfect gift for anyone in your life. Not only is it an amazing gift, but you can add something extra. Making your gift the most thoughtful gift ever.

 

 

 

 

 

What are your plans for Valentines Day?? Whether you’re going out or staying in, I hope your day is filled with love from everyone in your life, even if you don’t have a significant other. Spend the day loving yourself girl! You deserve it. Also!! Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for $100 to use on JORD!

THANKSGIVING OUTFIT IDEAS!

Hi babes! I’m finally home for Thanksgiving break and I could not be happier. I’ve had such a relaxing weekend with my family. I’m looking forward to this week off, even though I have so much to do. Today I wanted to share some of my possible outfit options for Thanksgiving this year!

OUTFIT #1

Top-  Forever21

Bralette- Francesca’s

Jeans- American Eagle

Mules- Franco Sarto, from Marshalls

Purse- Charming Charlie’s

This outfit is perfect if you want to be comfy but still cute. The sweater has an open back to show the bralette perfectly. Plus this sweater is super comfy and oversized which means you can have a food baby and no one will know! These jeans are a basic dark blue denim. They are high waisted and super comfortable. Now to my favorite part of the outfit, the shoes! I just bought these mules on SALE at Marshall’s for $20! Such a steal. I always find gems there. Lastly, my bag is from Charming Charlie’s.  It reminds me of a crazy expensive Givenchy bag, but for like $50 bucks. For this outfit I would probably wear my everyday gold jewelry, blog post on that coming soon! Overall the color combo of this outfit just screams Thanksgiving to me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


OUTFIT #2

Top- Forever21

Jeans- American Eagle

Booties: Carlos Santana, from Macy’s

Purse: Target

This outfit is a little more dressy with the blouse and higher heeled booties. The criss cross detail with the gold ties is so cute and fun. As well as the sleeves, they are tight on your wrist then flare out, adding a nice touch! This floral pattern also just screams fall to me. I paired this top with my American Eagle jeans also. With these suede booties I like to cuff my jeans at the bottoms, I think it looks really cute like that. This bag was on clearance at Target a couple months ago and I love it! It just a basic, taupe, cross body, bag. It’s one big pocket and very unstructured, but looks so effortless and can hold so much. It pairs well with the fun patterned top. With this outfit I would probably wear my everyday gold jewelry as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


OUTFIT #3

Top- Buffalo Exchange

Jeans- American Eagle

Loafers- Franco Sarto, from Marshalls

Purse- Kate Spade

Choker- Forever21

This is probably my favorite outfit in this post. I love this top, I think its so fun but also comfortable. I literally can’t seem to stray away from wearing black, anyone else?? I just recently got these black jeans because my other ones have ripped knees, so I needed a more sophisticated and basic black pant. I actually got them on sale from American Eagle as well! This is also probably my favorite cross body bag I own. It’s the perfect size and it goes with everything. Kate Spade makes some of my favorite bags ever. I’ve been loving gold jewelry recently, rather than silver. So I would also probably add a dainty gold necklace to layer with the black tie choker. And then we have the amazing black mules making an appearance once again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


OUTFIT #4

Sweater Dress- Forever21

Boots- Target

Necklace- Forever21

Purse- Sam Edelman, from Squan Dry Goods

This sweater dress is the COMFIEST dress ever. I literally would wear this everyday if I could. It feels like you’re wearing a blanket, but you look super cute! This might be my second fav outfit. These boots I got last fall at Target and they’re still in great shape, and I wear them all the time. Thigh high boots make your legs look so slim, and they’re flattering on anyone! You could also even pair some black tights under this and wear the thigh highs or even shorter booties. The necklace I paired with this outfit I’ve had forever. I love it because it has both silver and a gold color, so you can mix your metals. Any statement necklace or even the tie choker from above would look awesome with this. The bag is the same one I showed you guys in my thrifting post and I’m still loving it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

I hope you guys liked this post! I love creating outfit ideas and taking pictures of flatlays. Which outfit would you wear?? I’ll keep you updated over on Instagram on which outfit I wear on Thanksgiving! I hope you all have an awesome week and holiday! I’ll be catching up on my reality tv, eating lots of yummy food, and spending time with family and friends. Thank you for reading! Don’t forget to subscribe and comment which outfit you would choose!

OOTN: HALSEY CONCERT

Hey guys! Long time, no talk. I have been super busy with school and life in general! Today I wanted to share my outfit and makeup details from last night. I went to Halsey’s Hopeless Fountain Kingdom Tour… it was AMAZING. Halsey is my favorite artist and performer. She is so genuine and down to earth and I think that’s something hard to find in artists today. She interacted with the crowd and talked to us like we were her friends. Her voice is beautiful and every lyric has meaning. Her first full album came out during a harder time in my life. Hearing those songs brought me back to those moments for a second. It was so surreal to hear them live again, for the second time,  but in a better time of my life. Realizing how far I’ve come and grown as a person is such a great feeling.  Halsey is role model in my life in every aspect. If you guys have never listened to her music, you should! I am having major concert depression so lets take a look at last night…

Outfit Details:

  • Top: Bodysuit from Forever21. It has adjustable straps which is nice, but no button on the crotch area to put it on which is inconvenient.
  • Bottoms: My favorite black jeans from Hollister.
  • Shoes: Steve Madden platform sneakers.
  • Ring: Buffalo Exchange (see more in my thrift store post!).
  • Bracelet: Snakeskin wrap bracelet from Burlington.
  • Choker: Forever21. I originally bought this because I thought the chokers were separate but they are not! Still cute though.

Makeup Details:

  • Eyes: Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. Love how this look turned out. Would you guys want a tutorial on how to do it?
  • Face: There is so many steps to my face makeup, would you guys want a post on that? Let me know.
  • Lips: Kylie Jenner lip kit in the shade Dolce K (shown in last pic).

 

I also could not resist buying this yellow hoodie from her merch, despite the outrageous price! Overall, I had such a fun night and I am so grateful I had the chance to go. Thanks for reading loves! I hope you all have a great week and give Halsey’s albums a listen if you never have! Follow me on Instagram for more pictures of my everyday life! @juwleea

FALL MUST HAVES! ♥

Hi loves! It is officially the first day of Fall! Who’s excited for the most beautiful and aesthetically pleasing season of them all? The leaves have started changing colors, PSL is back at Starbucks, Forever21 has their sweaters out, my nails are painted maroon, and it’s finally FALL. Today I wanted to talk about my fall essentials, from clothing to food, I have it all covered.

CLOTHING: 

♥ My first must have for fall are these booties I just recently picked up from Marshalls, by the designer Franco Sarto. They are this cool, deep brown color with silver zippers on both sides. I love the fact that the zipper is on both sides, little detailsProcessed with VSCO with hb2 preset like that always get me!

Because of the cool tones, you could wear these with blue jeans and a cream sweater or even with black jeans and a burnt orange sweater. The versatility in these booties is what sold me on them, I know I will get so much wear out of these this Fall.

♥ My next clothing staple is sweaters. Big, soft, comfy sweaters are my favorite thing to wear in the fall. Dressing up or dressing down a sweater is always the answer. Forever21img_1216.jpg sells cheaper sweaters but you have to be willing to look for the better quality ones, which can sometimes be a hassle. I also like to get sweaters from Urban Outfitters and Pacsun, despite the fact that they are definitely more pricey. The orange Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetsweater pictured here has an open back so it looks really good when you wear it with bralettes underneath. The cream sweater is more V-neck shaped and is more cropped, one of my favorite sweaters I own. The dark green one is more thick and is also cropped, I love this one for layering, especially when it starts to get more chilly out.

 

♥ Another staple piece for fall is black jeans, and I mean you NEED these. I literally wear my black jeans 2-3 times a week. They go with everything from graphic tees to sweaters.These jeans pictured are from Hollister. They have the rips in Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetboth knees, distressed just the right amount. I usually buy my jeans from American Eagle, but these ones were such nice quality and the fit is amazing, definitely recommend.

♥ Denim. Yes, jean jackets are always in style. My favorite jacket at the moment is this one from Marshalls, literally only $20! It is the perfect fit for me.  Oversized perfectly, slightly distressed, perfect shade of blue, honestly to die for. I wear this with almost anything. It adds more to the outfit instantly, another great layering piece.

♥ The next must have for fall is socks and tights. Patterned tights dress up any boring outfit, all while keeping your legs nice and warm. I like to wear the floral tights shown with a black button up skirt and a sweater, with a staple necklace. They are also super cute with a black sweater dress or t-shirt style dress with a layered jacket. I also love to wear over the knee socks with dresses or skirts too. They look so cute and can also make your legs look slimmer. I also own a couple pair of leg warmers. Yes, leg warmers. High riding boots with the leg warmers peeping through at the top looks so good! It adds a little something extra to the outfit. Fall clothing is my favorite type of clothes to style, the color palette is just so perfect.

BEAUTY:

♥ Lets just take a moment to appreciate fall makeup trends. From berry lips to maroon eyes, I’ve tried it. Makeup is one of my favorite things to do, like ever. Being able to play around with new palettes and colors to create a look that is amazing has always been a passion of mine. The Urban Decay Naked Heat palette has every eyeshadow color you will need this fall all in one place.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

♥ The next fall makeup trend I love is brownish and berry lip colors. The lipstick on the left is number 107 by Rimmel’s Kate collection, and the nudey brown color on the right is the color Posh by Mellow Cosmetics. Adding a pop of color to your look with a nice berry lipstick in the fall is the way to go! However, if you’re a person who doesn’t like to have to touch up all day, nude is a more wearable option and still makes you look put together! Tip: I always put my Burt’s Bees chapstick on while doing my face makeup so my lips can get hydrated before applying my lipstick at the end of my makeup routine. Another tip for deeper toned lipstick is to always line your lips with a lip liner to avoid feathering or bleeding on the outer part of your lip.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset♥ Maroon everything in the fall, even the nails. Having my nails painted always makes me feel more organized and put together. If my nails are chipped and ugly looking I feel so blah and I can’t stop picking them until all the nail polish is off, which is even worse! This is my favorite nail color at the moment by the brand OPI, in the color Guys and Galaxies. This time of year I will always either have this color on, black or sometimes a shade of gray or taupe.

 

YUMMY STUFF:

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

♥ Pumpkin spice anything is the key to my heart. My roommate brought this from home last weekend and it is so delicious! It has the pumpkin Special K flakes with cinnamon clusters and it is to die for! Honestly so good for anytime of the day especially a late night craving.

 

♥ Okay so obviously I saved the best for last, it’s PSL season. Pumpkin Spice Latte, for those who are not avid Starbucks goers. I always get my PSL with nonfat milk and of course whipped cream. It Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetis seriously fall in a cup. This year they were selling these environmentally friendly cups with a green leaf changing into a red leaf bordering the cup, like how cute is that, I had to get one. Also, with this cup you get 10¢ off every order, which will eventually add up over time. Money off and helping the environment just by using a cute to go cup is a definite yes from me.

 

 

I hope you guys liked reading all about my fall must haves. Hopefully it got you in the fall mood, despite this warm weather we’ve been having lately. Please subscribe to get an email update everytime I post something new! I have so many more exciting posts for the future. Happy Fall!
