Hello everyone and happy Monday! 

Today is the first day of my spring semester for my junior year. In a way it is kind of bittersweet. I'm happy that my college career is almost over, but at the same time I am not ready to go into the "real world." How did two and half years go by so fast? I guess I'll just take it one day at a time and make the most out of the rest of my college career here in Charlotte!

Now, on to today's outfit. First off, this top you may have recognized this top from my Christmas blog post where I did a candy cane inspired outfit. As much as I would like to say that I don't re-wear my clothing pieces and have the funds to pick up now items whenever, that is just not realistic for me at this point in time. Plus, it's kind of fun trying to find new ways to style clothing pieces you have already worn before!

And secondly, if you read my post on CollegeFashionista then this outfit may look pretty familiar to you... I had worn this outfit for my introduction post for CollegeFashionista and I thought it was way too cute not to share it on my blog! 

The over all outfit is pretty simple, but the little details such as the ruffles, pop of color from the statement necklace, and lace up flats really amps up the outfit. While I do love my colorful outfits in the warmer months, I tend to go simple in black and white during the cooler months. There's something so classic about black and white outfits and I love adding a pop of color to them! 

I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday so far and hope you have a fantastic week!

  13. I totally get the need to rewear clothes. I wish I had an unlimited closet, but that's just not the case! I also love this necklace that you paired with your outfit today. I am a huge fan of anything mint and anything statement necklace related. So adorable!
