 Hi! I’m Kelly, a lover of fashion, fitness, and all things beauty. I am currently in my junior year at Western Kentucky University and interning with College Fashionista as a Style Guru! I have loved dressing up since I was a little girl, and that passion has only grown over time. My mom definitely raised me on affordable fashion, I was just as excited to shop at a thrift store as going to any department store. I look forward to sharing my excitement about fashion (particularly, affordable fashion) with you!

One thing I have always struggled with when looking at big fashion bloggers, fashion magazines, and celebrities for inspiration is that they generally represent a lavish lifestyle. My friends know me as the one who will tell you “You could have gotten that at TJ Maxx for $5.” Actually, though, this is a direct quote. The reason I named my blog The Everyday Babe is because fashion should be for EVERYONE, and it does not have to be expensive. Affordable fashion is something anyone can attain. A $400 bag isn’t what makes you fashionable. Fashion is an attitude and an extension of who you are.

I am a firm believer that fashion is a form of self-expression. I think your outfit can showcase as much (or as little) of your personality as you choose. My fashion choices have always been heavily dependent upon my mood, so my looks are often changing. I hope to inspire you to cultivate your own style as an outlet for creativity and an extension of your personality, without breaking the bank.

 


My Picks from the Nordstrom Fall Sale

My Picks from the Nordstrom Fall Sale

The Nordstrom fall sale is here! For those of you who don’t know, Nordstrom has to be one of my all-time favorite retailers. High-end products, killer customer service, and amazing sales several times a year. The fall sale began Nov. 2 and will carry on through the 12th so there is a good amount of time to shop.

I have included several pairs of denim, because who doesn’t need a good pair of jeans? This pair from Topshop is a classic mid-wash and will stay in your closet for a long time. I absolutely love the way Topshop denim fits and am a big fan. You can check out one of my favorite pairs here, in my post on embroidered denim. If you love those, you should check out this pair from the fall sale!

I absolutely love these Nike tennis shoes because I think they go so well from the gym right to class and off for a study date after. They are the perfect pair to top off a sporty chic outfit.
One of my favorite things from these items are the black thigh high boots from Steve Madden. They are perfect for pairing with sweaters, dresses, and everything in between this fall and winter! Stay on the look-out for an upcoming post on 5 ways to style thigh high boots. I think they would look amazing with a pair of high-waisted jeans and a bodysuit.

I also included plenty of classic pieces. I think when looking at higher end stores like Nordstrom, the primary focus should be pieces that you want to last and intend to keep in your closet for years to come. As a college student, the value of the product I am buying is incredibly important. For instance, if I know I will only wear something once or twice, I likely won’t spend more than $15-$20 on the item, unless I know it is a high resale value.

On the other hand, if I know an item will last years in my closet, a classic coach bag, the perfect pair of riding boots, or a cashmere sweater, a higher price tag is easily justified. Generally, I am looking for those kinds of pieces, at an even better price, when it comes to Nordstrom sales.
