Feelin’ 22!

Happy 22nd Birthday to my amazing, handsome and brilliant boyfriend James! Today, he’s the feature on my blog :) Usually he’s behind the scenes, working on computers or solving math problems of some sort and he doesn’t get in front of the camera often. So, while he was looking so. cute. in his faded denim and natural tones, I decided to take him out for a quick fashion shoot!

Not only do I love sharing my fashion with you, but I also love sharing the looks of my fabulous and fashionable friends – including that of the ultimate, Sir Timothy Ludwig. Today Tim is teaching all the men out there how to look MANTASTIC.

IMG_2613Men, here’s an easy way to show of your fashion sense – the matching of the socks and pants. Now, I know how easy it is to reach into your sock drawer and grab one ankle high white sock and a low ankle black sock, but it’s ultimately screaming at the ladies, ‘My sock matching skills reflect my inability to commit.’ So take one from Tim’s book, as he pairs these excellent baby blue-lavender chinos with a dark blue patterned sock. He also effortlessly matches this blue-on-blue combo with a pair of camel brown loafers: a comfortable and classy look. Today – it’s Tim for the win!

Manicure Monday – Sephora ASAP 3D


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hi Stylers – I hope you all had a great weekend! Today on ‘Manicure Monday,’ I am showing off some more nail products from Sephora. For this manicure, I used their ASAP 3D nail lacquer appliques. They come in a variety of designs and are currently marked down on the Sephora website from $15 to $7! They go on just like stickers, are super easy to use and are said to stay on for up to 14 days. The package also includes a small cuticle stick and nail file for easy application.

I received a few of these sticker sets for my birthday, so I was excited to give them a try and see how they worked – and I was quite impressed. This particular sticker set is called ‘Suspended.’stickers1

Here is the final look:nails2Shop this ASAP 3D nail applique and others now on Sephora.com!

First off, I am SO SORRY stylers for leaving you hanging the past week and a half – the schedule has proved to be much more intensive than initially imagined. But I am bringing it back today with an ootd titled “Fall Forward.” I could not be happier about Fall arriving upon us – it’s finally the season of layers!

Dressing Up Your Combat Boots


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Combat boots and jeans sound like a pretty casual pairing right? Well, I can’t say that’s always true!

With the right pair of jeans, you can really dress those shoes with the casual-rep up. Today’s post gives you two outfits – and two pairs of jeans that are the perfect combination of comfortable and dressy for the combat boot. It also features a few new items from H&M that are great choices for the fast-approaching Fall season!

22nd Birthday Recap


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A week ago today I turned 22! And finally I am getting a chance to share my outfits from the week with you! Last Saturday, a birthday party was thrown at my apartment with my closest friends. The theme was black and white so only I was dressed in color – a maroon romper to be exact! I found the romper in Charlotte Russe and there was only a size large left, but I loved it so much I got it anyway – because if there is anything you can get away with in a bigger size it’s a romper.

Here is my the look from my Birthday party:

bdayparty2bdaypartyThe two gold bands around the neck were part of the romper – an aspect I loved! Paired with gold jewelry and tan crochet wedges from Marshalls. See my birthday manicure and jewelry in last week’s Manicure Monday post!

On the day of my actual birthday, my best friends round up again for a fancy birthday dinner at an Italian restaurant called Mario’s. This time I was the one dressed in black and white, with straight hair and a polka dot three tiered dress – one of my favorite types of clothing.

I would say it was a birthday success! I ended up having a great week thanks to all of my wonderful friends! I love you all!

Cue the Taylor Swift lyrics…


Manicure Monday – Textured Neon


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

My friends and family must really know me because for my birthday this year, my sister and one of my best friends got me basically the same thing: a bunch of nail polishes and nail stickers from Sephora! Which means I am veryyy excited for upcoming Manicure Monday’s! :)

Today’s post features two Formula X nail polishes from my friend Amanda and my sister Cassie. I used the neon yellow-green from Amanda titled Zap (right) as the base coat and the black textured polish from Cassie called Blast Off (left) on top.


The textured polish is similar to a glitter, as it consists of a variety of speck shapes that when applied to the nail create a paint splattered look. Here it is, today’s manicure titled Textured Neon:

Something fun and bright to add pazazz to any outfit!

Stylers – again I apologize for my lack of blog up-keep! But I promise I have some great posts in store, especially since my birthday was yesterday! Yes, people can finally sing Taylor Swift song lyrics to me because I’m 22. While I want to share with you a few of my birthday outfits, I figured I should share my first day of school outfit from Monday with you first. One of my friends told me the outfit was very ‘post-apocalyptic’ because of all the holes and tears and I loved this comment! Here is the look:

Liv Your Style Update


, , , ,

Hi Stylers -

I apologize for missing a few days of blogging last week. I’ve been extremely busy preparing for classes, which started yesterday. I am on my FINAL semester of school which is so bittersweet! This also means I may not be able to blog as frequently as I have been this summer, but my goal is to post AT LEAST 3 times a week. Hopefully Monday, Wednesday and Friday — just depending on how busy my schedule is! But keep visiting the blog as I will be trying to post as frequently as possible.

I hope you have a great week stylers – and look forward to more posts on Liv Your Style!

peace, love & liv
