Happy Friday, friends! It seems like this week flew by! After this Monday I'm officially on a little "summer break" (AKA I'll only have one class two days a week... I'll take it!), and with my schedule opening up I'm excited to dedicate more time to File to Style- so be on the lookout for some fun posts coming your way! Anyway, onto what we've been loving this week...

I love wearing pajama sets to bed and these are my favorites! The short sleeves are perfect for the warmer months.

Since trying out this cleanser from Tula last week (and loving it!), I really want to try the exfoliating treatment mask

Went to Ulta to find a new eyebrow pencil and came home with Anastasia Brow Powder Duo and new brush. So far I'm really liking the combo.

Love this outfit Julia from Lemon Stripes shared this past week. I found a similar sweater here that is a little more affordable!

Wouldn't this bag be perfect for summer??

Obsessing over the Day Designer binder recently... really wanting to switch to a new planner before transferring schools in the fall, have any of you used the Day Designer binder before?

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!

Happy hump day! Today I want to share our love for the ultimate and white stripes.  If you haven't noticed navy is the new black and almost everything has some kind of stripes, so marry the 2 and you have the perfect combo.  We at File to Style love to pull fashion and function together and this is the perfect pair.

I found the perfect pair of slip-on sneakers a few weeks ago on I seriously can't get enough wear out of them.  They are super comfortable and go with almost everything.

And who doesn't love the perfect blue and white stripped notebook.  This May Designs journal goes with me everywhere.

Check out below for some more blue and white stripped pretties!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good rest of the week.

Happy Friday! Don't you just want to jump into that cozy bed and sleep the whole weekend away?? I know I do. And Ps- thanks Pinterest for the major #roomenvy. Anyway, with classes finally winding down and the weather finally warming up here, I've got summer on the brain so obviously I've been spending any free time I have online shopping and compiling a major summer wishlist. Click through and see what we've been loving this week, and let us know what you've been loving in the comments below!

Random... but I've been on the hunt for a good, stylish-ish pair of sneakers! A good pair of comfy shoes is something everyone should own, but I've just been having a hard time finding a pair I like! A friend of mine recommended these! Leave other suggestions in the comments below!

If I had a few extra bucks laying around, I'd love to splurge on this little bauble! Just think how pretty the gold will look with a tan during the summer! Plus you know this will be in your collection for years and years... :)

Late night shopping (and a little #treatyoself for finishing my hw!) lead to this purchase. Have any of you tried out this cleanser by Tula? I'm kind of a skincare hoarder, but the probiotic science behind this product line seems so interesting!

Speaking of skincare we both use this moisturizer and love it! I only started using it a few days ago but I can already tell such a difference in the tone of my skin. (for reference I have rosaca and very pink skin, so its a miracle when I find something that works!)

Have you seen our April giveaway?? It's a good one, you still have time to enter on our Instagram! (@filetostyle)

So excited about the 2016-2017 Simplified Planners! Loving this navy and pink floral cover!

Pink bags are my favorite, and I'm obsessing over this one! Bonus; you can monogram it!

Loving peplum tops for spring and I think I need to add this one to my collection!

Thanks for stopping by! We hope you have a great weekend!

We're so excited to show you all the goodies we picked out for our April giveaway.  As we were grabbing some of our favorite items we decided to grab an extra so we can share it with one of our lucky followers.  Make sure to check out our Instagram for the official rules and how you can win all these fun little must haves! 

First up is our favorite Lilly Pulitzer tumbler which has become a daily necessity when running out the door.  Super stylish for either work or school!!  Staying hydrated is key and it's so easy to tote this tumbler with me wherever I go.

With so many of our readers in the middle of finals we added our favorite MiO energy in iced mocha java.  It's so easy to make a quick pick-me-up between classes when there's no time to run to the coffee shop.

We're totally loving Burt's Bees Coconut and Pear lip balm right now. I have one in my bag, in the car, on my desk... It's so yummy and makes me think of all things summer :-)

Last but not least we threw in a few of our favorite desk supplies that are super stylish and always good to have on hand.  You can never have too many pens...right? 

Good luck to everyone who enters. The winner will be announced in 1 week from today so don't wait too long to enter.

Similar tunic (this one is on sale for less than $20!) // J.Crew jeans // This year's version of my Tory Burch tote (love the pattern on this one!) Jack Rogers sandals

Today we're back with another student success post! With finals creeping up on everybody I thought this would be the perfect time to share a few of my tips for staying motivated and productive while studying!

1. Study with a friend...

Study with a friend! I've found its easier and a little more fun to have a study buddy! Its nice to have somebody to study with especially if there was something you learned that you weren't quite clear on. You can also make flashcards and take turns quizzing each other- flashcards are one of my personal favorite ways to study!

2. Get out of the house...

I don't know about anybody else but I cannot focus when I'm trying to study at home. There are so many distractions... T.V. shows, food, my dog... just to name a few. Getting out of your house and making the trip to your local starbucks or favorite coffee shop cuts out a lot of distractions and makes it easier to focus on the task at hand!

3. Treat yo'self...

I'm always looking for a good excuse to get myself a little treat and in my opinion finals week is the perfect excuse! Weather its a coffee, a manicure, or an hour to binge-watch your favorite show, you deserve to treat yourself after all your hard work. I already treated myself to a new face wash since all the stress (I'm talking to you, accounting) has made me break out so bad!

4. Stay organized...

In college, I can't stress enough how important it is to actually use your planner. I especially rely on my planner while studying and during finals week so I know exactly when projects are due, when I have a presentation and when my big tests are. Writing everything down really helps me to prioritize what is the most important to me. 

5. Don't give up!

My final and most important tip is to not give up! I know sometimes it can all feel very overwhelming, especially when your semester is full of your most challenging classes, but just remember everything is going to work out and you can do it!

Thanks for stopping by! We'd love to know your tips and tricks that help get you through the stress of finals week.

Happy Friday! This week has been a long one, especially with the start of finals! If you're anything like me and have been camped out in the coffee shop since Monday you definitely deserve to treat yo'self! Lucky for you we've rounded up some of our favorite finds from this week to brighten your day!

If you live in a place that is cold 8/12 months of the year (ahem Michigan...thanks for the snow storm last weekend!) I'm sure you start collecting new winter gear in April too, but this jacket  was too cute to pass up! Its even perfect for chilly spring days! If you want a little bit of a deal, I found it here for 20% off!

Now onto some springtime fashion... I just bought this Lilly top and am loving it! It's the perfect, casual fit for a simple t-shirt that you can style tons of different ways!

Speaking of Lilly, I just noticed these shorts on their website. Athletic shorts are my jam for the summertime since they're comfy and so easy to throw on, Thinking about adding them to my collection!

Is anyone else super excited about Emily Ley's new book?! I can't wait to read after flipping through the preview! You can pre-order here

S'well water bottles are my favorite and they now sell them at Target! They come in tons of different colors and patterns but I'm especially loving this one!

I just got this pair of sunglasses and I've been wearing them nonstop- even more than my higher-end ones! (PSST, they're only $20, you need these!)

I don't really need a new backpack for class... but this one has a removable cross-body bag! How cool is that??

Loved this article from Ashley Brooke about working from home!

Thanks for stopping by! We hope you all have a great weekend!

One of my favorite things about the weather warming up is all the bright colored clothes and pretty dresses. I've been a fan of Sail to Sable for the past couple years because everything on their website is so classic and can be worn over and over again. Today I rounded up some of my favorites from their recent spring 2016 collection!

Tucket in Tweed Flare Dress- Fit and flare dresses are my personal favorite to wear! I think they're the most universally flattering on everybody. This would be the perfect dress to wear to a wedding or even a graduation! 

Basket Fit and Flare Navy Dress- Another fit and flare dress because they really are my favorite! I love the nautical look to this, you could easily dress it up with a pretty clutch and some lace up heels, or dress it down with your favorite pair of Jacks

Jetting to Jetties Fit and Flare Pink Dress- I love that this dress is casual but still cute! This would be the perfect dress to throw to run errands or for a casual date night downtown! Pair it with your favorite tote and big sunnies and you're good to go!

Silly in Stripes Romper- This is my favorite pick out of everything! Rompers are my go-to during the summer since they're so easy to throw on but still look put together. I'm also obsessed with the blue and white stripes, this would be the perfect addition to any summer wardrobe!

Call Me Classic Sea Blue Dress- I love the light blue color of this dress! This would be a perfect addition to your vacation wardrobe since its lightweight and easy to pack! Think how pretty this would be while you're lounging on the beach... need!

Thanks for stopping by! What are some of your favorites from Sail to Sable?

A few months back I decided to purchase an Erin Condren planner, and I'm so glad I did! I was using my Day Designer planner- I still love that one, however the daily pages just weren't as practical as I thought they were going to be for keeping track of all my assignments and my school schedule. What I loved about Erin Condren planners is that you could really personalize everything on it to make sure you could stay organized with a system that works for you. I chose the horizontal layout since that would be the easiest for me to keep track of my weekly assignments. Today I thought I'd show you a peek inside my planner and a few tips for how I keep it organized as a college student with a full plate!


Color coding is a system that I've found really works for me and keeps me organized. When I see the different colors in my planner I automatically associate it with a different aspect in my life. A tip when it comes to color coding is keep it simple, too many colors gets a little overwhelming! My favorite pens are the Papermate InkJoy pens since they come in so many different colors and you can find them at Target!


I'm a big fan of stickers and making my planner look pretty, but I've found that stickers are easier to use when they're more practical. I love finding cute sticker shops on Etsy, a few of my favorites are SimplyWatercolorCo. for those cute heart checklists and SweetKawaiiDesign for other cute stickers. I also like to use color coding dots to mark paydays and when I have bills due. I usually get mine from Wall Mart or Office Depot!


The monthly calendar is really important to me, I always make sure to keep it up to date just like the weekly spread. The monthly calendar is a good tool to use when you need to schedule appointments, meetings, vacations, etc. since you can open it up and have all your plans for the month right in front of you. 

Here's a closer look at my monthly spread. I also like to write down when assignments are due and when I have tests, just as a little reinforced organization. :)


The weekly spread is the most beneficial for me. When I get my class syllabus at the beginning of the semester I make sure to go through and write down all of my assignments and test dates in my planner so I'll never miss a due date. I also like to write down appointments and reminders throughout the week. One thing I started doing is making a to-do list for every day. Going through and being able to check off a task at the end of the day is one of the most rewarding feelings!

Here's a closer view at my weekly spread. I like to write down what we're going to be covering in class as well as what's due that day. I also write down my work schedule, when blog posts go up, bills that are due, and appointments like going to the dermatologist or getting a haircut. 

And that's how I organize my planner! I like to think I keep it pretty simple, but still fun! Having a pretty planner that I love makes me excited to open it up and use it rather than toss it to the side and ignore it all semester. Thanks for stopping by! Let me know some of your tips and tricks you use to organize your planner!

While shopping for a few spring staples online at, I couldn't help but browse to the Accessories.  I can always use a scarf to complete an outfit or the perfect everyday tote to carry around town.  The color is a light gray and it has beautiful gold accents.  When looking online it's always hard to see the quality so I took a chance and ordered anyways.  SO GLAD I DID.  The tote is perfect in so many ways and looks like it costs way more than $40.  I love how it has a top zip, long handles to fit over my shoulder, a crossbody strap and tons of room inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure to check back often for more fun posts.  Might even stumble on a very exciting giveaway.

p.s. Old Navy is having a 40% off 1 item sale so don't wait too long because i'm sure they won't last.
