Tiffani's Style Guide: How to Rock a Pair of Black Pumps

I have a friend who is vacationing in Alaska right now and last night, she asked me what she should wear with black pumps. This summer, I've been doing a lot of shopping and I saw a ton of black pumps in all different fabrics. I like to wear black pumps when the weather permits. I like wearing them with skirts, dresses and jeans. But there are endless ways to wear them, since they're so versatile. Since black pumps are essential in every woman's closet, I decided to show you guys three ways to wear them. Here are three ways I would wear these classy pumps...
Girls' Night Out.  What I love about this blouse is that you can dress it up or down. I love pairing a white blouse with blue jeans and adding a red clutch for a pop of color. This makes me want to go out with my friends right now!

Date Night. The uber-classic LBD and black pumps make a beautiful duo. I added a gold cuff, a ring and diamond earrings for an effortless night out with your boyfriend. 
Family Dinner. Last but not least, the outfit for a night out with your family... When it comes to family dinners, I like pairing an all-over lace tank with colored jeans. Since green is in this fall, I chose these jeans from Charlotte Russe to stay on trend. I like pairing the fairly-simple top with a long necklace and stacked rings to complete the look.

Girls' Night Out:
Blouse, $24.80
Clutch, $10.50
Jeans, $29.70
Pumps, $59.95
Necklace, $6.80

Date Night:
Dress, $20
Pumps, $59.95
Earrings, $3.80
Bracelet, $14.50
Rings, $3.80

Family Dinner:
Tank, $29.50
Jeans, $25
Necklace, $6.80
Rings, $4.80
Pumps, $59.95

TGIF: Tiffany Blue

Lately, I've been obsessed with Tiffany Blue, and whenever I see this color, it reminds me of Audrey Hepburn. It also makes me feel calm, which is good for the school year, especially when there are tests and quizzes to study for. I think it's such a pretty color! Also, I've shopped a lot this summer, and saw a lot of Tiffany Blue colored blouses, skirts, blazers, and even shoes! I think this hue looks great against a plain white blouse, blue jeans and some classic black ballet flats.

Here are my pins from this week...

These cupcakes look so good with the white bows! They look just like the box!

Such a great inspiration! I especially love the bows on the chairs and the lanterns!

So artsy! "Riva" ($27) from Chanel is great for adding a pop of color to a plain white blouse and jeans! And I love how it matches the sky in the background!

Beauty Buzz: 6 of my favorite fall scents

Hi guys! Fall is all about color, so fragrances should be too. I love the bottle in which the actual perfume is encased in. Although I love choosing my perfumes based on how the bottle looks, it is really about how it smells. That is what inspired me to write this post! For fall, I like perfumes that have a fruity and floral vibe to it. One that I use a lot is Ralph Lauren Romance. It smells so good, which is why I keep using it.

Check out my favorite scents below...

Ralph Lauren- Big Pony Women’s Collection #2, $55
Ralph Lauren- Ralph, $52.50
Taylor Swift- Wonderstruck, $49.50
Juicy Couture- Viva La Juicy, $70
Justin Bieber- Girlfriend, $49
Coach- Poppy, $45

Which one's your favorite? What is your favorite perfume to wear in the fall? Tell me in the comments below!

Back to School Guide: my 3 outfits

Hi guys! I hope you all are having a great summer! With the summer coming to an end and the school year coming around the corner, it's time to head to the school supply store and stock up on pens, pencils, notebooks and other supplies you may need. Plus, a lot of people stress about what to wear on the first day. I love dressing nicely for the first day to get a good impression from my teachers. To ease your stress, I came up with 3 outfits based on the girl's personality. First, there's the preppy outfit, which is exactly what I wore on the first day of high school (last year). The bold outfit is great for girls who are daring and love to wear bright hues and prints. The third style is the urban outfit, which is for the girl who loves oversized sweaters, and unique details. Check them out below...

Practically Preppy. Channel your inner Spencer Hastings from Pretty Little Liars with a classic shirt, skinny jeans, and classy ballet flats. Don't forget those pearl earrings! And, a big, neutral-toned shoulder bag will hold all your first day necessities.

Bright & Bold. Don't be afraid to wear eye- catching hues like lemon or mint. To achieve this style, pair bright skinnies with a neutral sweater with a contrast tote for your books. I love the stacked bracelets and how the nail polish matches the jeans. This look will definitely have all eyes on you in the halls!

Urban Chic. For all you girls out there who love fun cuts, prints and colors, this outfit is for you! I love pairing a basic tank with tie dye or ombre cut-off shorts. Stacked rings and a large graphic cuff polish the ruggedness of the shorts and tank.
