Happy Pants… 

Top: Forever 21 

Pants: Zara (in store)

Shoes: ASOS

Choker: The Style Studies 
These culloute pants are my most unique and stylish to date! Because they are wide legged culottes, they do have a bit of an unflattering affect. As a bottom heavy woman it’s harder to look slim in baggy pants. But because of their high waisted, stretchy waistband, these are nice and snug in the waist and therefore help to create more of an hourglass effect. I call them my happy pants because not only are they vibrant and fun, but the same day I wore them, I sold my first chokers on my shop ❤️ whoop whoop! 

Shop x The Style Studies

Hi all!

Some big, new things going on starting this week… I’ve opened an Etsy Shop! After working with a few jewelry companies promoting chokers and making some handmade chokers for my friends and I, I decided to start with selling some. I’ve been wanting to create my own shop for awhile to put my own clothing designs out there, but I am far too bad of a sewer to do that, so I thought why not sell my handmade chokers? Little business endeavors have become quite my thing (; So I took to the internet and created The Style Studies Chokers. As my shop grows I’ll be selling vintage finds and even some of my own designs (I promise, with the help of a handy seamstress… like I said, you don’t want my sewing!) so I can really start pushing out there my creative side and sharing with all of you my genuine, personalized style. We all have to start somewhere, and there’s no time like the present. With a sprinkle (or heap full) of hard work and dedication, anything is possible.

Here are a few of my chokers… (you can see the full site in the “SHOP” tab at the top of my site, or here)


Fun Things to-do While Fall is Still Here…

It’s officially November… Which is officially scary. Scarier than Halloween scary. Time goes bye much, much too quick and there’s so many fun and festive things to do during the Fall season! Halloween may be over, but the little bit of warmer weather and freshness of Fall isn’t. There’s still time – but it’s limited! Now that the ghouls and goblins are out of the closet, there’s other things you can focus on this season.

Here are some fun things to do to embrace the rest of Fall this November:

  1. The traditional apple-picking, apple pie baking, baked stuffed apples – apple opportunities during Fall are endless.
  2. Throw a football party – this is endless amounts of fun! chips, dips, and some friendly flag-football during half time.
  3. Go Wine Tasting
  4. Go Tailgating
  5. Spend a day at the park or in a nearby city. Pretty soon you won’t even want to be outside to even climb into you
  6. Festive Fall Crafts – knit scarves and mittens, collect fallen leaves to decorate the house, make a giving tree
  7. Go for a hike – this is especially amazing at the time of years, because the foliage is utterly beautiful!
  8. Golf – If you’re really bad, like me, you might want to take this down a notch and go for some mini-golf (;
  9. Go to your local farm and see what there is to offer for the season! Apple ciders, pumpkin pies, corn mazes, scarecrow making – all fun things to take part in!
  10. Collect for your local food bank for Thanksgiving… There’s no time better spent than time spent giving back… After all, it is giving-season!
