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….

Awkward:

  • 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.

Awesome:

  • 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!!!

XOXO

Campus Fashion Police

8 Dec

If you read our about us page, you know that we were inspired by the hit TV show Gossip Girl. We wanted this to be a sounding board for everything chic, a focus group for the fashion-minded, and of course, a police force for perpetrators of style crime.

We’ve been slowly building a network of interested and like-minded friends and fans, which has been great. {We encourage you to continue referring us to your interested friends.} Lately, we’ve been receiving the exact kind of reaction and traffic that we’ve been looking for. We appreciate comments and ideas on the blog here, and we REALLY appreciate the Twitter traffic. In the past few weeks we’ve gotten tweets reporting ridiculous style on campus, and our favorites are the picture evidences {just like Gossip Girl!!!!}. Here are the latest terrors.

[[Note: We do not know who these people are, and this is not intended as any personal attack on them. Please no identification of these individuals. Maybe just buy them a more stylish present for Christmas?]]

This one is from the ever stylish Tom Nance (follow him on Twitter), spotted in the HBLL. You know how I feel about knit headbands.

Our friend Jessica Farrell (follow her on Twitter) notified us of this fantastic number. I owe her. I now no longer have to explain why I hate knit headbands. I can just show them this.

Our latest photo incrimination is horrifying. Kristin Lybbert (Follow her on Twitter) saw someone wearing these. Croc slippers. I refused to believe they existed. Turns out. They do. And it’s literally called their “Fuzz Collection.”

Thank you all for your contributions! Keep the good and bad style coming! For those of you not using Twitter, this is reason enough to start.

The Rain(y) Music Monday

6 Dec

In honor of our overcast day (secretly my favorite weather), I picked one of my all time favorite songs. When I feel like my “Mr. Right Now” playlist is dull or lacking something, I almost always turn to this song. It’s upbeat, fun and colorful.

And all I ever want is to be that “kind of girl that makes you feel better; it don’t matter how you used to feel.”

Oh My Stars

15 Nov

Two weeks ago today my boyfriend called me and said we were going to see Andrew Belle play at Velour. I had no idea who he was, but I’m always game for some new sound. Turns out, I love him. He’s been my constant soundtrack ever since. It’s the perfect fall music. It complements the colorful leaves, chill winds, and misty mornings. His music is amazing. Whether you want the crushing heartbreak of “Make It Without You” or the longing love of “The Ladder,” the chill sound of Andrew Belle is for you. (Follow @andrewbelle on Twitter. Worth it.)

My favorite? Oh My Stars. My heart melts every time.
