Lady in Red (Leather)


I'm totally digging the red leather jackets that keep popping up.  Red is one of my favorite colors---besides black, white, or gray---to wear.  I like it on my clothes, my glasses, my shoes, my nails, my lips.  (Blame it on my mom and grandma for decorating their homes with an abundance of red!)  It's my go-to hue.  It's my... "When in doubt, wear red."  And I'm often in doubt about what to wear.  So a red leather jacket is a total lifesaver.
 I nabbed mine on sale at Target and have been dying to wear it out tonight... but I just couldn't decide how.  Seeking inspiration from the lovely Pinterest finds above, I asked you all on the Lovely Undergrad Facebook page which style you preferred.  And you loved the first look!  So here's how I'm wearing it out tonight:

My comfiest pair of dark skinny jeans.  A plain white tee.  The red jacket.  Camel-colored flats.  A dark turquoise crossbody bag.  Gold hoops.  A big gold boyfriend watch.  And a gold necklace...although I have a little red skeleton key hanging on mine!

Like I said on FB, the 2nd look is my fav. A big scarf, some bracelets, flared jeans, and converse all stars, so my style! :)

Cute. The first outfit is my favorite too! I don't really wear too much red, but I don't know why. Maybe I need a red leather jacket too.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
