Summer Bohemian

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Bell Sleeves, Animal Print, and Fringe Booties

Hello friends!

I think this may be one of the very last, if not the last, photoshoot I had taken with my blonde hair! I can't wait to show you guys what I look like now, but I wanted to finish out the posts for the summer all in blonde because my new hair has a very fall/wintery look to it. On the day I wore this outfit, my boyfriend and I had gotten all dressed up in fun outfits and were heading to this little pop up carnival in my hometown to take pictures. It was about 101 degrees out and we walked probably a mile and a half both ways getting there and back, only to find that the carnival was all gone when we arrived! Instead there was a farmers market, but we were dying in the heat and didn't want to carry any massive vegetables with us on our way home. At least we managed to get some cute pictures!

DIY Adidas Sneakers with Patches

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | DIY Adidas Sneakers with Patches

Who’s ready for back to school?!

I know I promised you guys some DIYs that you'll actually wear, so here's the first one! I wear sneakers basically every single day at school when I'm not wearng boots or booties. It just makes so much sense because you're walking all around campus all day every day and sneakers support your feet while keeping them comfortable. I remember freshman year when I tried to wear Jack Rogers and ballet flats all the time, and some people can do that (good for them!) but not me. Since I wear sneakers so often, I wanted a pair that no one else would have which is very difficult to do at a big school. I decided to embellish these black Adidas Superstars with some patches I found on Etsy, take a look at how they turned out!

Pink and Girly Summer Date Night Outfit

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Pink and Girly Summer Date Night Outfit

Pink is my favorite color!

But...I pretty much only wear blacks and neutrals. Every now and then, I find an awesome pink piece that I can add to my wardrobe for flare, but that's about it for color for me haha. With fall coming up, I wanted to show off this end of summer date night outfit because I don't know when the next time I will be able to wear something like this will be, so enjoy! Details linked down below 🙂

The Ultimate Back-to-School Wishlist for College Girls

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Back To School Wishlist for College 2016

Black Skinny Jeans (check!)
It's always a good feeling to start off the school year with a new pair of jeans. Personally, I'd always rather have a few pairs of jeans that I LOVE and rotate between them throughout the week than have tons of jeans that I don't know how I feel about. My staples are boyfriend jeans, black skinny jeans, dark wash skinny jeans, and whatever is in style that season like embellished or flare. I like both ripped and non ripped jeans, so I try to keep a variety in my collection. I already own a pair of these jeans, but I loved them so much that I wore them almost every other day and ripped the knee wholes way too big, so I figured it was time for a new pair.

Boyfriend Jeans (check!)
You may have seen these classic Levi's being rocked by Kylie Jenner, they're her signature wedgie jeans that make her butt look so fab. My sister bought a pair of these and told me how in love with them she was, so I decided to try them out, too. I usually don't spend this much on jeans, so I was ready to try them on and return them if there was even one thing I didn't like about them, but those tags came off as soon as all of my other jeans went in the trash. I'm not kidding, when you try on a pair of jeans that make you look this good, you will never want to wear any other jeans ever again. No wonder Kylie flaunts her behind in these, they really do work magic!

Leather Jacket
A leather jacket is definitely a staple in fall fashion and this Blank NYC one is a part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I wish I had acted faster, because now this one is out of stock in my size, but I have my fingers crossed that I find another cute one soon, let me know if you find any!

Belt with big Buckle
Okay...maybe this isn't a staple...but, it is on my back to school wish list! I used to wear belts like this all the time, but I haven't in forever and I'm so happy to see them coming back in style! Fun belts can add such a sexy flare to a basic outfit.

Boots
These boots are currently a part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, too, and soooo cute! (Hurry up, the sale is over this Friday!) Having a good pair of boots in the fall is crucial, especially if you're from the north. I wear boots or booties every single day when it gets too chilly to wear flats or sneakers and I'm dying over these because the have a heel that's not unbearable and this shade will go with everything. I look at these boots and I'm already planning out mid-semester outfits for class!

Silky Dress (check!)
Slip dresses have been EVERYwhere lately. I'm not a huge fan of the tee shirt-under-dress look yet, but I can't wait to pair this with a leather jacket and my Doc Martens. It will create such a glam, punk rock look and I can't wait!

Makeup Brushes
Everyone knows that you're supposed to wash your makeup brushes on a regular basis, but everyone hates doing it. It's one of those tasks that we always forget to do or put off doing because we think about it at the wrong time. Pro tip: treat yourself to a new set of brushes at the beginning of each school year. Your face will clear up because there won't be any build up oil, and you'll feel the difference! Now I know makeup brushes are expensive, so try saving up ahead of time and keeping an eye out for sales. Also, here are a few sites where you can score some good quality, less expensive brush sets: Nanshy, Morphe, Sigma, and bh Cosmetics.

Treat Yo Self

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Treat Yo Self with Pink Roses

Who here watches Parks and Recreation???

That show has to be one of my all time favorites, so if you haven't seen every single episode, go do that! I love every single character and all of the subtle, and not so subtle, humor packed into every episode. One of my favorite episodes is when Tom and Donna celebrate "Treat Yo Self Day."

When I saw this bunch of 25 beautiful, long stem, fuchsia roses I could just hear Tom in the back of my mind..."treat yo self," and then I had to haha.

Pretty In Pink

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Pretty In Pink with Krass and Co.

Happy Monday!

How did everyone survive the heat this weekend? I don't know about you, but I had the most amazing past three days! My boyfriend came to visit me and took me out to such a nice sushi dinner on Friday, then we spent Saturday and Sunday exploring in my back yard. There's a creek that runs through our woods and we followed it all the way back to the swimming hole where we played catch with my dog for hours. We also put on our bathing suits (I wore a bikini top and my favorite Krass and Co. shorts) and cooled off while catching crayfish, 16 of them! It was so refreshing to hide out in the shade under the trees and it took me back to my childhood when I spent every single summer day back there with my two older sisters.
