Music Monday: All I Need

10 Jan

Happy Monday, Stylers! This song has been steadily climbing my play count ranks since Eliesa hooked me up with it a few weeks ago. It’s objectively fantastic.  The song “Let it Rock” was my absolute favorite for my entire freshman year, and this sample is awesome. If you want to get it, make sure you buy it on iTunes so you get the version that Kevin Rudolf actually sings on. Enjoy!

Follow Friday: Awkward and Awesome

7 Jan

Happy Friday everyone! We hope your first week was successful and refreshing. We have lots of great ideas for the new year and new fashion! (Our New Year’s Fashion Resolutions are coming soon…. promise.)

One of our best friends Eliesa led me to this blog, the subject of our Follow Friday. Husband and Wife, Tyson and Sydney write The Daybook, much to our satisfaction. Our post is going to follow the Awkward and Awesome format, but check out all the other posts, because they’re great. Fantastic style. We endorse it fully.

Now for OUR take on Awkward and Awesome….


  • White socks with Black leggings in Brigham Square
  • BYU Jerusalem T-shirts on the first day of class
  • Pajamas, also the first day of class.
  • Wearing stylish boots, but falling in them. We all know we do it and pretend that we don’t.


  • Knee-high gray leather boots (my most recent purchase, haven’t fallen in them YET)
  • Floppy beanies worn appropriately
  • Boys in skinny ties
  • Chunky knit sweaters and skinny jeans
  • The Daybook!


Thanks to Syd for the great inspiration! Follow her on Twitter!!!

Ciao Bella!

20 Oct

Ciao! I’m Eliesa and I am studying abroad in Italy this semester. When the BYU Style girls asked me to do a guest post from Italy, I’m sure they were thinking I had some great new styles to talk about and that I would be completely aghast at the lack of fashion sense Americans have compared to Italians. However, this is not that case. I honestly believe that lots of Americans, and especially students on BYU campus dress really well, and better than many Italians.

    Before coming to Italy I had a feeling I would just feel terribly frumpy every day compared to the way the people of Italy dressed. I have been following the blog “The Sartorialist” for the past couple months {thank you D for introducing me to that} and notice all the gorgeous fashion found on the streets of Italy. I expected to run into different, yet edgy, awesome style everywhere I turned. But no. What do I run into every day? Tennis shoes, lower than low-rise rise skinny jeans, awful-fitting shirts, and messy hair. What!? No! Where are the chic dresses? Where are the tailored blazers? Where is the glamorous red lipstick? Where are those divinely dressed Italian men?

    I realized pretty quickly that Italy was not a glamorously stylish as I had dreamed and I came to some realizations:

    1. Head to toe style is important.
    2. If you can’t wear it with confidence. Don’t wear it at all.
    3. Style does not have to be expensive.
