Stylish Nails

Just a quick update! I got my nails done a few days ago. Usually, I go for something short, simple and classic. However, this time I've decided to try something new. I'm in a new stage in my life and I've decided to express it through my nails. Not only that, but I wanted to get the bright colors out of the way before fall hits us.

Hope you enjoy!

you can find the midi rings at Macy's.

Freshman Dorm T-shirt

Recently, my school hosted an event called Freshman Convocation and every single freshman that lived in the dorms was required to go. Even though that in itself was pretty lame, that wasn't even the worst part. The bad part about it was that we were all required to wear matching t-shirts! Every buildings' students were forced to wear different colors of the same t-shirt, depending on which building you were in. So my roommates and I decided, why not make our t-shirts stand out? So I got to cutting...
I started out by drawing a line halfway across the shirt exactly where I wanted to cut it. As you can see, I've already cut the neckline off.

From here, I've simply cut off the sleeves following the hemline and cropped the shirt to where it is high in the front and lower in the back. Then, I took a couple of pieces of scrap...

With those two pieces of scrap, I tied a bow at the shoulders of the shirt to give it more of a feminine look.

Then, I did a technic called shredding. Shredding is basically when you pull out the individual threading of fabric using your fingers or, in my case, tweezers. If you'd like to learn how to shred, check out this video here.

This was the finished product!

BoHo Love

First off, I want to apologize for the lag in posting. I've been busy getting situated with my dorm and first year of college. Thankfully, I'm back with my first outfit of the day in a while. I bought this dress about 4 or 5 months ago but, for the life of me, couldn't decide when or where to wear it. I thought it was just too beautiful to wear just anywhere but also too beautiful to just sit in my closet. So I decided 4 or 5 months later to finally whip it out on this nice labor day weekend. It was perfect because it was not too hot out but not too cool either. I felt so pretty wearing it! I might add that I feel more like myself when I'm dressed in the bohemian style, so this dress was just right for me.
Hope you enjoy!

Move In Day

Hey guys! I've been super busy lately ever since I've moved in to my dorm. These are just a couple quick pictures of my side of the dorm. I share an apartment style dorm (kitchen included) with 3 other girls. There are two of us in each room. Don't be surprised by how small of a selection of clothes you see in my closet. I have three storages of clothes under my bed and a whole different dresser stuffed with clothes, not to mention an under the bed shoe storage that includes thirteen pairs of shoes. Mind you, that's not even all of my clothes/ shoes. Hope you enjoy!

Fedora to the Rescue


As you might be able to tell, I'm having a bad hair day. Between shopping for going back to school and packing for college, I haven't had the time, or money, to go to the salon or let alone do my own hair. Despite this, I knew my hair needed to be washed....which leads me to my bad hair day. But then, I happened to come across my mom's old fedora hat, which thankfully saved the day. I drew inspiration from this hat to create this outfit I'm wearing today.

Nike Free Flyknit+ Review

The Nike Free Flyknit+ has quickly become one of my favorite shoes in just a matter of days. It's extremely comfortable and lightweight while still having the support of a running shoe. The great thing about this shoe is that it's top half is pretty much like a sock, which allows you to wear this shoe without them.
It's very flexible and allows lots of movement, which is perfect for any athlete. However, it's flexibility fails to take away from the shoe's strength as it hugs around your ankles and remains very snug. It seemed a little tight at first but it fits true to size and eventually loosens to conform to your foot perfectly

 There's something important that I've been meaning to blog about all weekend. Important not only
because they're cute but because they're actually good for you! Good for you as in comfort and support. I'm talking about Nike's new shoe, the Free Flyknit+ that dropped this month. After wearing these shoes non stop for two days straight, both in & outside the house, I knew I just had to share. I will admit, however, that after seeing them for the first time I wasn't too impressed. I mean, of course the color attracted me but I thought, it looks nothing more than a colorful sock with a shoe sole at the bottom. BUT...after trying them on, I literally fell in love. It felt like walking on pillows. After searching all day for a comfortable shoe to walk around campus in, as I will be starting college next week, I knew these were the one. Not only are they a great running shoe, they are also just enough to make a sporty outfit POP! Definitely check them out!

Halls & Alley Ways


I'm completely obsessed with over the knee socks. Although these are just the basic black lace ones, I literally own dozens of them. Anyway, this is just a quick outfit of the day post. Hope you enjoy!

Girly & Flirty

Today's outfit was on the girly and flirty side with a simple skirt and an almost floral tank. I especially liked the back of the tank and how it criss crossed. I also really liked how the socks matched the colors in my shirt.


Hello everyone! Nice to meet you. As you can see by my blog, my name is Devon (pronounced like the boys name Devin). After about half an hour of scratching my head on what to write about for my first post, I figured why not start with what I wore today. Duh!
For today's outfit, I went for something very simple, hence the white tank (which is secretly a dress ;-)) paired with light washed denim high waisted jeans. Then, added a little bit of edge with ankle boots, a curly short hair style, and huge glasses (which are prescription by the way). I would describe this outfit as "simply chic". Fortunately for me, my new haircut adds a little bit of chic to every outfit.
So what do you guys think? Am I the only one who wears dresses as shirts?
