So I live in these tees! I love them so much. They’re isn’t too much to this outfit, but I definitely live in this during the school year and the summer. These jeans are so worn in that I’m starting to get a hole in one of the knees, so jeans are definitely on my summer wishlist!

I also love this tote! I find that I gravitate towards larger bags with more room so I can tote around all of my stuff, but it’s nice to have a little wristlet or something that I can take out for quicker errands!

Now for the fun part, all about my major!! So as many of you know, I go to Ohio University and am majoring in Retail Merchandising and Product Development (RFPD for short) and am minoring in both Business Administration and Marketing. I also plan to work towards an International Business Certificate as well. I wanted to use this post to talk a little about what my major is and the classes I’ve taken so far.

RFPD

So basically retail merchandising is the business side of fashion. I’ve always loved fashion but never really the designing part of it, but I still wanted to be a part of the creativity that’s behind the fashion industry. So with my major there are literally a million different things you can do once you graduate: visual merchandising, buying, general/store manager, stylist, merchandise coordinator, blogger, the list goes on. This is such a positive because the possibilities are basically endless for me when it comes to careers and there are even more choices with my minors too!

At OU, you take tons of rfpd classes, consumer science classes and anything else that has to do with the retail world and then later on in the curriculum retail majors are supposed to do an internship, but I also kind of want to do one next summer as well, just for more experience.

Business Minor

I just wanted to add a business minor to make myself more well rounded for job opportunities and future career endeavors. I also figured that since my major focuses on the business side of fashion, that I would get more business experience and classes under my belt.

Marketing Minor

A long time ago, when I was originally trying to figure out what I wanted to do, I was looking at marketing as a major. Marketing still kind of interests me because it’s kind of it’s own world. There’s so much to learn, and again, it makes me more well rounded when it comes to jobs.

International Business Certificate

My dad use to and still kind off travels a lot for work; he’s been to Germany and India, twice, and that’s just outside of the country. I love to travel and was lucky enough to travel a lot when I was younger, so seeing him to get to explore the world seems like so much fun. Completing this certificate will be a great experience to have under my belt and an additional achievement and it also means I get to study abroad! It also would give me an upper hand if I was to ever do business outside of the US.

Thanks for reading friends!! Until next time!

Hey guys! Sorry for the missed post on Friday! I wasn’t feeling the greatest. So this outfit is perfect for Spring! Over the summer I picked up this fringe sweater from H&M from their Coachella collection, which is back again this year too! Shop it here.

I love this sweater because it’s fun and great for the warmer weather + it’s simple with a pop of the aztec-y trim. Fringe is also a fun way to spice up an outfit and is super trendy!

Thanks for reading!

Hopefully you are having a wonderful week, I am! This is my first blog post as a nineteen year old!! Anyway I snapped these pics up last week after my PR + Marketing class. It was such a beautiful day and the sun was shining bright, and not to mention 2/3 of my classes were cancelled! My friend and I had to do a few returns, which turned into shopping… I know, I know, once an addict always addict. I was also doing some fun blog research for an upcoming post!! 😉

I got a question about these shoes and how comfy they are. Honestly they’re okay, the thing is, is that they’re super flat. I wouldn’t recommend you wear these for a long day at work, but a few hours in them won’t hurt you. I haven’t noticed any terrible pain with them. But at the end of the day they’re like $25, they won’t be the most reliable, but hey they’re trendy.

Now for the Pinterest hack! Make sure you check out the Pinterest Board below. This one is unique because I take pictures I see on Pinterest with similar or the same clothing pieces as the pieces in my closet and save them to this board. This way if I’m ever in a rush or lacking inspiration, I look at this board and can easily recreate an outfit. I have both a Spring/Summer board, as well as a Fall/Winter board, all with outfits similar to the outfits found in my closet! Perfect Pinterest hack!

Thanks for reading!! Catch ya on the flip-side, xoxo

Hey guys, sorry for the missed post on Friday, I spent all week studying for an exam and I still bombed it, so that’s how my semester is going… Anyway, I’m back with another post! I’m so tired of this cold weather and wanted to shift my mindset to warmer clothing. I wore this outfit over spring break when it was a tad warmer then it is now. It’s cute and easy, I’m pretty sure I just spent the day running around and doing errands. I’m dying over these shoes, they’re just the cutest!! I can’t wait to wear them more as the weather warms up!

Thanks for stopping by and reading! Check back for a new post on Wednesday!

Waking up to cancelled class emails is always the best. On this day in particular, I had my sociology teacher cancel class two days in a row because she was sick. Unfortunately I was already up and ready before I checked my email. I actually put on real pants and thought this comfy outfit was deserving of some pictures. The rest of the morning I was pretty productive (until I took a nap)!

As for the outfit, this Old Navy tank is great! It is from last year so hopefully they bring it back. I worked over spring break and didn’t see any in the store, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be coming back! They’re just easy to throw on and go! I paired it with my cute Hollister jeans, white slip-ons and a jacket and was all ready for my class later that day!

Thanks for reading!
