College Student. Sometimes dancer. Aspiring fashion journalist and everyday style enthusiast. I started my blog back in 2010 on a whim, and now it has grown into the visual representation of the power that I believe fashion can have. It's not about having clothes it's about what you do with them, what you wear says who you are. Fashion is transformative, and a chic bag or outfit puts a smile on my face as much as a good book on a rainy day. My blog is about dressing the undergrad and young professional, because so little markets cater to our style. You've officially been accepted into The Undergrad Style File.

Deck the Hauls

While Christmas may be over, there's still the New Year to ring in, new outfits to create, and a time to clear out my chaotic closet and find somewhere to put the lovely things I received for Christmas. Here's a quick rundown of some of the items I received. I desperately need new jewelry because I never seem to hold on to a pair of earring for longer than a year, especially small ones. I'm going for a more classic with an edge look in 2014 and I have recently fallen in love with stud earrings. I can't wait to style the blush colored infinity studs and gold and black earrings above. I've been looking for an actual vintage cameo necklace, but the tiny one above will do for now. Of course, I got pearls. No questions asked. Pictured above are the bag and boots from my Christmas outfit post. Finally are my new caramel colored combat boots that feature a red and black plaid lining so I can fold the top of the boot down. These boots are made for walking!

Keep reading for my New Year's post, announcements, and new series coming to the blog. What's your 2014 style resolutions? Tell me all bout it in the comments section.

Santa Baby

Boots: Vince Camuto (Marshall's), Lip Color: Wet n Wild's Cherry Bomb

Puffer Coat (Marshall's), Statement Necklace (JC Penny)

Bag: Steve Madden (Burlington Coat Factory), Dress: (JC Penny), Tights (Old Navy)
By now we've all torn through metallic wrapped gifts, devoured sticky sugar cookies, and played Santa Baby on a loop, I hope everyone enjoyed Christmas and your respective holidays. I opted for a chic and simple outfit for Christmas Day. My outfit needed to be festive but comfortable, I did double duty at breakfast at my mother's house and then dinner at my grandparents' house. Needless to say my dress was perfect for stuffing my face. I did something different other than the typical reds and greens we usually see during this time, and went for a taupe wrap dress, and paired it with a matching Steve Madden satchel and my quilted leather boots. To keep the look from drowning in neutrals I added an orange bubble necklace and matching studs. The entire look was a Christmas present ;).

See you in the New Year!

Sweater Weather

Sweater Weather
Hey undergrads, I hope you're trimming the tree and watching the Home Alone movies for the 20th time like me. When you're sipping hot chocolate with fluffy, drenched marshmallows or running out for last minute Christmas shopping, you want an outfit that is stylishly lazy. Get in with the oversize printed sweater trend with a chic, cream and navy blue Aztec print. Pair it with leggings and a long tank (p.s. leggings are not pants, but I won't tell if you don't). Top it off with cozy boot socks and rugged brown combat boots, which I am still on the hunt for. Add a gold chevron arrow necklace for visual interest and have a cozy chic day!

Happy Holidays,

Haute Holiday Outfits

Whether you are lighting a tree or menorah, winter holidays are the perfect time to be your best dressed.
Sparkle and shine have reigned as festive wardrobe staples for the past years. My friends and I opted for something a little simpler but still just as fitting for holiday festivities. We decked the halls with oxblood hues, sea green chiffon, and royal blue lace for a holiday work party. What's on your holiday haute list? Do you sparkle or shine?
