Tuesday Shoesday: Metallic Keds

I won these metallic Keds in an Instagram giveaway sponsored by Allie from alliewears.com, and if you can't already tell, I'm OBSESSED! They're the perfect combination of casual and chic and can be paired with almost any outfit. I also love that they help me grow an inch! See the three different ways I love to style them below!

 

the "casual" look

For a more casual look, pair the Keds with your favorite pair of distressed jeans and a flowy top. I've also worn them with leggings and a sweatshirt for an even more casual look!

 

the "preppy" look

To get this preppy look (which is the perfect spring transitional outfit!) find a pastel (or denim!) miniskirt and pair it with a chunky knit sweater. Once it gets warmer, you can switch the top for a classic button up.

 

the "edgy" look

I love the midi dresses right now, and I feel like this particular dress from Lush Clothing (similar styles here and here) paired with the Keds gives them a more "edgy" look (but I'm also not very edgy so...) Add a long statement necklace, a dark lip (I'm obsessed with this Revlon matte lip shade), and a top knot, and you're ready to go!

How would you style these shoes?? Which look was your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!

girls getaway

I'm usually the first one to complain about still being a student while all my friends have real people jobs, but I have to say it has its perks, like student discounts and scheduled vacation days. My roommates and I took advantage of the long weekend for MLK day and headed to Bryson City, the tiniest of towns nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains. The town has lots to offer, including a brewery, winery, and some great food! We, however, spent most of our time cozied up in our cabin. (and can you blame us with this view??)

We took to the trails on Sunday (much to Andrea's amusement) in search of some waterfalls (insert famous TLC song here) and took an embarrassing amount of selfies in the process.

A cozy cabin, hot chocolate in rocking chairs, mountain views from the hot tub, s'mores around the fire, hiking to waterfalls, game night- these were a few of my favorite things. I give this vacation 5 stars.

Queen City Round 2

The twitches are back at it again, but this time, they're taking on Torey's Queen City: Charlotte, NC.

Day 1: We went to The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery for dinner and brews. The German atmosphere set in some nostalgia for Maddie, bringing her back to her study abroad days. For a starter, we ordered the house made hummus, and we HIGHLY recommend it! We both ordered German style "WÜRSTE"s, as one would expect at a German restaurant, but Chris played it safe with the Club sandwich (and heard Maddie's wrath). Chris and Torey ordered The Raddler, which is OMB's Capt Jack with a splash of Sprite, and were hit with a burst of inspiration. This weekend marked the birth of our greatest creation to date, The Twitch: a full Corona with a splash of lemon lime soda served with a slight head twitch. After dinner, we met up with some of Torey's friends for a casual bike ride through neighborhoods at night, or as some may call it, a Trolley Pub. You can choose between an UpTown route or a NoDa route. We chose the NoDa route since we didn't have a full crew, but we would do UpTown if we ever went again.

Day 2: Torey showed Maddie and Chris a little bit of Charlotte. You'll find out pretty quickly that iced coffees are a priority for the sisters, so Amélie's was the first stop (and you can't go to Amélie's without ordering a salted caramel brownie, amiright??). The rest of the day was reserved for the Florida Georgia Line concert, including a tailgate with Torey's school friends! Is there anything better than a country concert in the summer? (And yes I did say summer, because in typical Magee fashion, we are two months too late.)
