Trend Timeout: Snap Pants, Dressed Up & Dressed Down

The last time snap pants were in style, I was in high school and admittedly, was definitely not athletic enough to pull them off. They're sporty and sleek, but also incredibly classic, so it's not surprising to see them back in action and making a renewed fashion statement. While I've certainly seen snap pants dressed down, they take on new life when you dress them up and surprisingly, can look incredibly chic. Now that they're back on the fashion scene, I got inspired to put my own spin on them, both dressed up and dressed down.

When I started shopping online, it quickly became apparent that Adidas is the OG of snap pants, but I didn't want to spend a lot to try this trend, so naturally, I went to Shein.com! 😉 This is one of my favorite places to shop when I want to experiment with super trendy items without breaking the bank. I'm happy to report that Shein has a respectable selection of snap pants, so I bought two pairs in black and green (the green are currently unavailable 😞, but they might come back in stock).

I decided to use the green snap pants to put together these two outfits because I love the pop of color and I wanted my dressed down look to channel USF colors (green and gold). However, now that I've styled the green, I know the black would be equally versatile and stylish, too. I'm really pleased with how both outfits turned out! Check out the results below.

Sports Team T-Shirt DIY


When I was growing up, I loved to bedazzle my clothes. Ask anyone who knew me between the ages of 13 and 22, and they'll tell you I had an unhealthy obsession with rhinestones. I once bedazzled my high school t-shirts because they were just so plain and unexciting. A little glue and some rhinestones did the trick! ;) Years later, I still have those trusty supplies in my craft storage just in case.

Needless to say, I've always been fascinated with taking clothes and putting your own creative spin on them. Recently, I got lost in a rabbit hole of t-shirt upcycle DIYs on YouTube. It's amazing what a basic, baggy t-shirt can become with a few strategic cuts. I got inspired to try it myself with a couple of t-shirts I picked up from South Florida Strong, a new USF clothing company powered by USF alumni (Go Bulls!) that I stumbled across recently online. While the shirts are soft and great quality, they have a pretty straight fit since they're unisex style, so I thought they could benefit from a little creative cutting.

Using the South Florida Strong shirt and the Bull Strong shirt, I put my YouTube inspiration and a pair of scissors to work! I think they both turned out pretty well, but my favorite is the Bull Strong/black t-shirt. If you try your own DIY, my biggest piece of advice is to use new or very sharp scissors because that makes all the difference in how well the finished product turns out!

VIDEO: What's in My Work Purse

organizing your work purse

I'll be the first to admit I've been guilty of putting way too much in my work purse for far too long. I think it's ingrained in us from childhood to literally carry the world on our shoulders — in our backpacks, that is. I remember many of my backpacks growing up being unnecessarily heavy (because of all those relics called textbooks!) and my mom gasping at the weight when she tried to move it. I guess it's a natural transition into adulthood to find yourself hauling around a more stylish and sophisticated version of your grade school carryall, but still stop to wonder, what do I even have in there?

Earlier this year, I decided I was done with my heavy work purse and I vowed to downsize once and for all. I started using a medium-sized bag (as opposed to a large, roomy tote) to limit the amount of stuff I could fit inside. Then, I took a serious inventory of what I really need on a day-to-day basis and eliminated a lot of things that may be nice to have, but don't really get much use during the week when I'm mainly in my car, at home or in the office. This process really opened my eyes to how I could make more efficient use of purse space and believe me, I now feel much lighter!

I thought this exercise might be helpful to other boss ladies out there suffering from heavy purse syndrome, so I put together a video to walk through what's in my work purse, along with some quick tips!


So now, I've got to ask, what's in your work purse? ;)
