How to Rock Your Lazy Days

Everyone, even the most accomplished fashionistas, have those days where you just want to wear your sweats all day. Well stylebandits, I have great news: it is possible to have those comfortable (& comforting!) pieces without sacrificing your unique stylishness! Thanks to the kicked-up-a-notch sweatshirts and embellished sneakers many brands have been coming out with, you can have your lazy-girl style cake and eat it too.

Having one or two embellished sweatshirts in my closet has seriously made life easier – on those lazy days where you still have to be presentable I can just throw one on with my comfiest jeans and I’m ready to go. Picking shoes and tops that have small embellishments also mean no accessorizing necessary, which is always a plus if you’re feeling lazy or short on time.

What do you think of this look? How do you rock your lazy days with style?

Falling in Love with Fall

I love fall. Every time it rolls around – with its orange and red leaves, decorated porches, pumpkin spice everything – I feel so cozy and happy. And then there is Halloween. Don’t even get me started on Halloween. I LOVE Halloween. Maybe its because my last year of college is really like having to face a big ugly bully every day, but this fall has been like a source of comfort somehow. I’m hoping it will help reinvigorate me for the rest of this semester!

Recently, my boyfriend, best friend and I went apple & pumpkin picking. I’ve never had so many apples in my life, but let me tell you about these particular apples – they could have literally been picked straight out of Snow White. They were so damn good (my bff will vouch for this). Anyway, I was so excited and overtaken by all the wonderful fall-ness, that when we came back home I actually attempted to make apple cider from scratch. I used about eight apples, an orange, cinnamon, all spice, some pumpkin spice tea, lemon juice and honey whiskey. You throw everything into a big pan, cover it all with water and let it boil down (strain when done). It took between 1-2 hours and it tasted AMAZING. I was very happily surprised. If you’re in need of some Autumn comfort, try making this yourself! Not only does it taste fab, but you’ll also feel awesome for making your own cider.

Wow, reliving this cider might be making me drool a little, but moving on.

One of the other reasons I love fall so much is the fact that I can bust out my boot collection! I’m a boot-aholic and not ashamed to say it. My feet are famous for ALWAYS having blisters (I think its because I’m like the Goldie Locks of shoes – everything is either too big or too small), but boots are my go-to comfortable footwear. I also love fall colors. My favorites this season are maroons and brownish-purples (see my nails)! Something I’m really into lately has been mixing girly elements with more edgy or masculine pieces, like my outfit below.
