Do you freak out when you see a blogger or celebrity wearing clothes you own?  Well...I do. It's like the fashion gods have communicated their stamp of approval to you. Don't get me wrong, I'm confident in almost all my purchases, but I love the extra "oomph" it gives a piece. Plus, it can give you a lot of ideas on how to style it.

That's my coat!

grad worthy dresses-- UNDER $100

Graduation season is upon us and whether you're a senior, like myself, or just an attendee you've got to dress to impress. This will be an event that you will always remember and photos WILL be taken. You want to find a dress that won't leave you in screaming in horror when you look back at your photos. While I have already purchased my dress for the ceremony I've overheard numerous conversations around campus about what to wear and the best place to purchase. My suggestion? Piperlime.

Piperlime offers free shipping and returns. 
Bonus: ALL of the dresses showcased below are under $100. As any great fashionista knows, there isn't anything better than looking fabulous without breaking the bank.

Campus Style

SPOTTED: Girl in library wearing a killer outfit.

I loved how she alternated two colors between four pieces; purple blouse, peach belt, {slightly lighter} purple pants, peach shoes. It's such fresh, polished look--perfect for class during the spring semester.

{ New Do }

After four years of trying to grow out my hair, I've officially given up. Two weeks ago I made the impulsive decision to cut to a collar bone length. After allowing myself to adjust to the change for a full week, I decided that it wasn't short enough. So I went back...and now it's DEFINITELY short enough...border line too short. I allowed myself one day to pout and grieve over my lost locks.

So what does any girl do to make herself feel a little better? Go on Pinterest of course! 
I searched "bob haircut" and none other than Miss Dianna Agron appeared on my screen. She rocks a mean short do and after spending some serious time scouring her photos I feel a little better about my "new do".

Martha McQuade's scarfshop

I debated keeping this a secret...but when I find something this fabulous I've just got to share.

Martha McQuade makes some of the most beautiful scarves I've ever laid my eyes on. In addition, she's a designer from Minneapolis which makes my heart pound with Twin Cities pride. The colors she has selected are mouth watering and I will be hitting the purchase button as soon as I can. Also loving the option to choose your size; long+skinny, regular, big and GIANT. I've got a sneaking suspicion that I'm a "giant girl".
