Oxford Featured

Start raiding your boyfriend’s closets, ladies- oxford shirts are our favorite style piece for summer wardrobes. They're polished and classy, and give off that “effortlessly sexy” vibe we all probably spend a little bit too much time working toward (case in point: we’ve noticed that achieving the perfectly tousled and teased bedhead takes more time than it really should, you with us on this one?). Oxfords are extremely versatile. They can be worn easily with a pair of skinny jeans and pumps,... Read More

#TBT: Sperry Top-Sider

TBT Sperry Featured

ToWe were surprised to discover that the well-known boating shoe brand Sperry had been established in 1935, considering the shoes have increased tremendously in popularity over the past several years. We were quick to learn, however, that this trend of Sperry Top-Siders has come about recently due to a brand overhaul and campaign launch in 2003, which has proven to be very successful for the brand. No longer are the boating shoes thought of exclusively as made for yacht owners while sailing, because... Read More

Here are some outfits that will keep you cute and dance floor-ready! If you're more of a no-fuss dresser and prefer to... Read More

Workout of the Day: Horseback Riding

Horseback Riding

When we heard the word “workout” we typically think of things like P90X, yoga, and running. If something doesn't require changing into gym shorts or doesn't induce full-body sweating we generally don’t classify it as exercise. However, there are exceptions to this unwritten rule. Horseback riding gives you all the benefits running does plus an added bonus of an ab workout and then some. The best part is, you can stay in your jeans and look cute doing it! Because balance and good posture are... Read More

Trend Alert: Not Your School Backpack

Trend Alert: Backpacks

The purse is a staple that no woman can live without. Each stylish satchel contains an abyss of everything from your phone and wallet to those loose Advil tablets from the aftermath of last month's big night out. The glaring downside to this universal accessory is the fact that you have to sling it over your shoulder and hold it there all day long. Enter the backpack. Long considered a dead giveaway for tourists and students, the backpack is making a fashion statement in 2013. We go crazy for trends... Read More
