The side of the bed
His whole life my boyfriend had a side… In his twin bed. He was a right side guy through and through. Well when we moved into our house the right just became my side. Now I get to hear all about how he can’t sleep because “I’m on his side”. It’s like he sleeps in a cave in Siberia every night!
“You watched 2 seasons of Prison Break without me?!?”
“You were sleeping…”
“BUT YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO WAIT! and NOT watch it while I was at the gym!!!!”
We all know that you can never watch a show at the same pace so someone bites the bullet and has to just assume that nothing happened in the last 12 episodes that they missed.
Someone throughout the day pisses you off and they just happen to be in the line of fire- the line of a three headed fire breathing dragon fire. You get mad at how they chew or folded the towel [none of this actually has to do with THEM] So, next time just call up the person at work you’re mad at! LOL JK but really though please don’t do that… Instead the whipping boy will just take their beating.
“I didn’t mean it when I said I didn’t want anything for Valentine’s Day!” or when you tell him to leave and he actually does! Then you proclaim through tears when he doesn’t get you. In your defense he obviously should have known you didn’t mean it because he in fact has superpowers or is telepathic.
The cuddle/tickle fight gone wrong
It starts with a flirtatious tickle or “love tap” and can only end with verbal threats or someone getting punched in the nose accidentally and crying. There is no other option.
You get cold in the middle of the night and turn the air off. They wake up sweating and blast it. They leave for work. You put the heat on to compensate. They come home, livid that it is June and the heat is on. They open all the windows. You buy a space heater. They say “you can literally boil water in here!” The world explodes.
“But I’m already laying down”
Many a screaming match are born out of being so cozy in your blanket while your significant other uses the bathroom that, upon seeing them amble over on their return trip, you demand that they get you the remote, or the bag of chips, or some thing that you need so badly to survive but cannot be bothered to get up for because you. Are. So. COMFORTABLE.
We’ve all heard it before: Don’t wear white after Labor Day or before Memorial Day.
Well, we’re in spring and just a few weeks away from Memorial Day, so it begs the question: Is it okay to bust out the white skinny jeans or the white cut off fringed jean shorts? Or is this still not acceptable? Like the person who said navy and black don’t go together, this is one of the biggest fashion myths in history, and if you’re anything like me, you want to know where the rumors started and if they’re really true or not.
Well, now that winter is over and (unless you live in the Northeast and had that recent snow squall) we are on our way to a new wardrobe! Spring is tough because it could be cool in the morning and heat up throughout the day so layers are a must. I love white especially once all the snow melts. Pictured below are some amazing ways to incorporate white while staying warm for potentially brisk days.
All winter I’m bulky and trying to keep my toes from falling off, so it’s nice to wear some crisp new colors. I wear white year-round and during the summer love to pair it with tans, khakis, beige, and nudes to give it a clean, minimalist, and chic look.

So get shopping and tagging me on Instagram @theoxfordguide. Comment below I’d love to hear your thoughts on this once fashion faux pas! Until next time my loves!
Not all fashion trends are worth the effort, especially if you’re old enough for it to be your second time around (think neon colors, acid washed jeans, and pleated silky shorts.) But, the denim vest is an exception. It’s such a versatile piece, I dare say anyone could make it work.
Here are some reasons I love the denim vest:
- it’s a perfect layering piece for transitioning into Fall
- provides a great barrier for modesty when a tank top is a little too tight
- provides a structured look when wearing unstructured pieces/outfits
- disguises and hides lumps and rolls in the mid-section
- dresses down a fancier outfit
- gives you an edge
There are some things we need to focus on though when wearing the denim vest because we want to be more Tiffany Thiessen and less Tiffany Amber Thiessen. So remember that shades and distress level of the jean matters especially when you are wearing jeans. The length matters too because you don’t want to look like a 16 year old, you want to rock the vest on a more upscale level because let’s be honest, most of us are rocking it for the 2nd time around.

Just because it’s basically summer, doesn’t mean we have to stop layering our clothes. That’s why pieces like denim vests exist, for the sole purpose of giving our outfits some dimension. Whether you’re going for a clean look with whites and a lighter wash, or fulfilling your inner rock star with ripped jeans and a vintage tee, there are many ways to integrate a jean vest into your wardrobe.
Comment below and tell me your thoughts!
So I recently cut my hair into a long pixie. I’m still growing into loving the style but every now and then I get a wind of fierceness and no one can bring me down. That is until I run into someone who hasn’t seen my hair and I get the following reactions:
Why did you do this?
This one usually makes me regret the whole thing and want to hide away until it grows back, or wear a bag over my head.
So… are you a lesbian?
Is this the new thing now or something?
Haven’t you heard of Mia Farrow? Twiggy? Audrey? Miley?!
Don’t worry, hair grows back!
But I didn’t cut it to see how fast it grows back. Trust me I know it grows back, look at my roots.
I loved you with long hair though.
You know what they say about opinions….
Did anyone ever think you were a boy?
I’m actually playing Peter Pan in the next showing on Broadway so that’s what I was going for!
Do you like it?
I do and I feel like a fresh fashion start. It’s fun and I finally mustered up enough balls to do it…
Oh my god! I can’t cut my hair it would look terrible on me…….. but it looks so good on you….
I always tell people how I yelled “Stop!” in the middle of getting my hair cut so they know I wasn’t entirely brave
Boys like long hair
And I’m sure they would love if all women walked around naked but we can’t always get what we want
At least you have a pretty face.
…..thanks…. I think….
But remember to all girls out there, short hair, thin hair, long hair, frizzy hair, you need to rock it and love it! You are a badass bitch and nothing can change that! You live only one life so rock the style that YOU want. Don’t like anyone every deter you from thinking you are anything less than beautiful.
Stay fabulous my friends,
My love of fictional bad boys started when I was playing Dream Phone with my friend Alyssa. I asked her if I could keep the kid’s picture who had the tie-dyed shirt and earring. When my mom found it I told her I liked him and added him to the wall with Danny Zuko and Sean Hunter.
When I was finally old enough I began exploring the 80’s classic genre and fell in love with the Brat Pack. Up until recently I had forgotten my love of those five strangers. So I re-watched and fell in love all over again with the infamous bad boy.
He was dark and mysterious
Plus he had that “Fuck You” attitude that we all love in our terrible but great first boyfriend
But he was sensitive
But had a whit about him…
Plus, my god people, THAT SMIRK!
The man could also dance…
He was a natural born leader,
Who had street smarts
Plus he smoked like all of our favorite bad boys did
He even flirted like a bad boy
And kissed like one too
Although it’s been a long, cold spring, it’s time to break out those sundresses, skirts, flats and pastels! If you feel like your legs aren’t quite ready for that trendy pair of high-waisted shorts, throw on a dress or skirt. I personally love wearing high-waisted skirts because the style gives the appearance of longer legs. I also like tucking my shirts in because it allows for the entirety of the skirt to be showcased and looks more put together. Skirts and dresses are freeing and feminine, which I also love. But there is nothing more perfect than the circle skirt.
I’m a big fan of circle skirts, because they fit for every occasion – from leather jackets and sturdy boots, over sweet ruffled blouses and peep-toes, to blazers and pumps. No other skirt allows more styling interpretations. This is the one bottom that should hang in every wardrobe.
Too many cute styles, pattered to solid to scalloped, the possibilities are endless! Comment below on your thoughts! Will these skirts adorn your closet? Let me know!
I cut all my hair off and dyed it blonde and when I wake up I look like the pitcher from Summer Catch (you know that kid with the flame glove!)
Dark lips how I want to love you, but I just can’t help but think if people are staring in a good or bad way. Plus when you mess up your liner, black isn’t the most forgiving color.
In the words of my 4 year old cousin “Your glasses look like great-grandmas!”, she obviously doesn’t know fashion.
High-waisted looks so good on girls who can walk the VS fashion show, everyone else they just look like mom jeans with a little something extra.
You can’t wait to bust out the new wardrobe and put together all of those cute outfits. But even though heels photograph well in 3 inches of snow, you look like an idiot and it’s cold.
I’ve tried so many Warby Parker take-home kits and I always come off looking like Urkel or Harry Potter.
Suits are meant to be tailored- nothing more to say here.
When you spend hours adding sea salt to your hair and all you come off with is looking like is the Molly American Girl doll once you took her braids out, it’s just not meant to be.
They look so cute and chic. The girls have the right amount of layers, adding the perfect fall colors. But I can barely wear a long sleeve under a blazer, let alone a flannel, chambray shirt, velvet tee and sequin tie. You win again Pinterest.
