Happy summer, Fashionistas/os! I am excited to take a break from the books and spend my summer blogging, practicing yoga, teaching dance, visiting my lake home and focusing on all things fashion. I love to use the extra time I have on my hands in the summer to sort through my closets and restock them. Living in a college town, I do a TON of online shopping, but I can’t wait to be home and shop the local boutiques and stores.

I love to bring out my style and express myself through fashion; life is way too short to dress boring! I get most of my fashion inspiration from creeping around on people’s blogs or searching through the CollegeFashionista website; I am always finding new shops/clothing items that I would not otherwise find. I can’t wait for all the summer looks to be back. Although I love all the fun summer colors and looks, I am a sucker for my casual look of ripped jeans and a T-shirt. I especially love this look during the transition periods between spring and summer when the weather isn’t quite “summer weather.” I wear my casual shirts/T-shirts ALL the time, whether I am dressing casual or fancy.

In these pictures I am wearing some casual ripped jeans with heels to make for a more casual “business casual” look. I also wore one of my favorite floral tank tops under a traditional black blazer. This look is perfect for a summer internship or job, I love being able to make money in the summer…to be able to shop more, of course! Stay tuned as I capture some great style around town from fellow Fashionistas/os!
