Hello everyone, I was just sending out a post telling you that I will not be posting for 2 weeks. I recently tore my ACL and I'm out for atleast 2 weeks. Sorry. But see you guys in 2 weeks!
There's a new crown in town and its a little tougher than what you're used to. Welcome to the world of baseball caps. Baseball caps, although usually thought of only worn by baseball players, men, and women who aren't having the best hair day (I think we've all been there more than once) are actually very versatile pieces of fashion that can make an outfit more edgier. A few ways to pair a baseball cap:
1) The Casual Tomboy
Pair a baseball cap with a pair of worn boyfriend jeans, a T-shirt, a nice long overcoat and a pair of sneakers for a nice casual look with inspiration from the guys.
2) Gypsy Goddess
You can still make the best of a super girls outfit by having a maxi skirt and lace crop top paired with a printed baseball cap. Try one with a flower pattern to stick with your girly theme.
3)The Vintage Chick
Feeling like putting on a pair of high waist shorts? Match that with a few of your vintage pieces and try a five panel hat. They are just as they sound, baseball caps with five panels. They give off more of a vintagey look.
4) The Lazy Day Loafer
If today is just the day you want to do a few errands then lounge around try wearing some harem pants or sweats with a nice loose t shirt and top your head off with a baseball cap to show your can be comfortable yet cute at the same time.
This was my baseball cap outfit which I love and below are some street style pictures I found of others rocking their baseball caps.

How do you feel about the baseball cap trend?
After being in the house for what seems like a century I finally got out to taste a little bit of air. Needless to say I was happy to wear "normal people clothes" again. The weather was just one big frown dark clouds and droplets of drizzle. I didn't let that stop me from entertaining the fact that I was going to get dressed up, even if that just meant I was going to a Greek restaurant for my cousins student government event. I had a pretty fun time taking these pictures, did I forgot to mention it's about 39 degrees.
Hello people of the world, hopefully your day is going fabulous and your outfits are even better. I'm here to share another gem from the world of fashion, Alexis, or as she's better known as AlexisSplash. Enjoy!
Name: Alexis, but I go by my nickname AlexisSplash
Occupation/Grade: Currently working at Rocket Clothing Exchange
How would you describe your style?
My style is really based on my mood. One day I can dress super grunge-y and all black with thrifted items, then next day I'll be in bright colors! One thing I definitely like to do is just combine different styles to make my look. I'll gather tons of inspiration from Japanese fashion, Urban wear, and all the people I surround myself with and create a look to my taste. I guess anything to really inspire others with clothes is my style.
I've noticed you like to wear hats in your pictures. Is there a reason behind that?
Bad hair days, lol. Sometimes my hair is super hard to control and hard to style. So what easier why to hide it and not make it obvious then a hat? They're awesome to add an extra "uff" to a look too!
How did you start you blog?
Four years ago, I started using tumblr and started posting my looks for personal use. I've deleted my tumblr two times already and lost very important pictures so i decided to start up a blogspot dedicated to my looks. I don't have tons of readers yet, but I do plan on continuing my style journey and explore my full potential of my style and hopefully inspire others to do the same!
Where do you get most of your inspiration?
Like I said earlier, I get most of my inspiration from Japanses fashion, Urban styles, and my friends and family. Some of my favorite people I get inspired from is Kiani of Portrait of a Shopaholic, Grizelle of Gritriz, and Bebe Zeva of Fated to Be Hated.
Best find ever?
This is such a difficult question. Honestly, I think all my finds are incredible. It starts out as a simple piece of clothing and then you make it into the best thing that it can become when you style it. In my eyes, all my clothes are a best find. (I sound like a true shopaholic, lol.)
What do you do to make your hair so amazing?
I get this question so much, lol. My hair is naturally curly of course, but the best way to get volume is to layer your hair! Mine used to have thousands of layers to get its volume. My hair is pretty long now so I have to use some extras to get the volume that I want. So I use Garnier Fructis Stay in Conditioner to calm down the frizziness and add shine. Then I use Garnier Fructis Volume Mousse! (Hint: for more volume, blow dry your hair upside down!)
One thing you can't live without?
I can't live without shorts! I'm from California so I used to wear shorts all day errrrrday! I have so many shorts, it's not even funny.
Another hard question! I think right now, I'm currently obsessed with ASOS. I'm totally feeling all the panels and denim pieces they have in right now. I just need the whole store in my closet right now!
I honestly don't have one. I don't really keep updated with designer clothes at all.
What do you want to do when you grow up?
I can I just be a professional blogger, please??? lol, but in all, I do plan on majoring in Fashion Merchandising, but that might change. I honestly have no clue what I want to do yet. I do know that it has to do with clothes.
Where can we find you?
Thanks for the interview AlexisSplash. Great sense of style huh? If you like what you see comment below!
Welcome to 1975, where the shorts are short and the sunglasses are big. What's up guys? I'm enjoying my spring break in sunny Chicago (cue the sarcasm). Here are some pictures from Day 1. Yeah not great quality but I was bored and decided to snap some pictures.

Well it's that time again to present to you another fashion wonder from around the world! This is the second entry in my interview segment called "the Scoop." Today we've got a Sensible Stylista.
Kimberly K. from Sensible Stylista
I’m getting my doctorate in piano performance and my master’s degree in musicology at the Peabody Institute of JHU.
How would you describe you style?
Early professional with a playful twist
What is your favorite piece in your closet?
That’s such a hard question to answer. I guess my current favorites are my over-the-knee Guess boots, Burberry Trench, and J. Crew Factory Neon Statement Necklace.
What is the best thing you found at a good price?
I once found an Armani blazer (retailed at $1500) for $250 dollars at Nordstrom’s Rack.
How do you go at finding Sensible Styles?
I love shopping at discount stores like TJ Maxx, Marshall’s, and Off Saks Fifth, and I scour their clearance/sale racks for hidden gems. I also make sure to do my research. If there is a sale or promotion going on, I’ll definitely know about it.
Your're not only just a style blog, tell me about your other ventures?
I also blog about beauty and fitness. I review exercise DVDS, share healthy recipes, do monthly beauty favorites, etc.
When did you start your blog and why?
I started blogging in 2011, while I was living in NYC. I was constantly inspired by the amazing fashionistas around me, so I decided to blog and monitor my own style journey.
That’s such a tough question. I’ve been loving Rachel Zoe and Rebecca Minkoff as of late.
Who inspires you?
I find inspiration everywhere: magazines, fellow bloggers, TV shows, etc.
Trapped on an island full of shoes or working with Marc Jacob?
Wow. That’s tough. I think I’d have to go with working with Marc Jacobs.
