What else is the H for? // Hemlines and Higher Ed


Introducing Hemlines & Higher Ed // www.thehisfor.com

Hey guys!

Today, I have some exciting news for you! Many of you know that I am the oldest of 5… 4 of us are sisters and the baby is a boy! I absolutely adore my sisters [you can read more about that here] and I’m so proud of each of them for all they are accomplishing in their lives! And my brother is my whole world!


My goal when starting The H is For… was to inspire others to live well in all aspects of life! I’m currently a young, first-time mom. I’m no longer a newlywed. I’m not a single graduate figuring out adulthood and I’m most certainly no longer a college student. Even though I’m through those stages, I still want to inspire people who ARE to live well in all THEIR aspects of life too. And apparently, so do my sisters!

Meet Cathlyn. She’s the one on the far left. She’s my youngest sister and a sophomore at Baylor University. She’s on the dance team there and is involved in her sorority. She’s beautiful, confident and hilarious and happens to be very popular because of her ability to make 6 second videos on Vine [you can check out her weirdo-crazy vines here]! She’s obsessed with music [and has good taste, too], wants to end up in Austin, loves the color black [but she’s not emo or goth], and fell in love with fashion the day that she snuck into a fashion show that was taking place in the ballroom of the hotel we were staying at in Rome… Yeah, she’s pretty badass.

She is passionate about fashion and beauty and taking the steps necessary to make the most of this life by finding the best ways to take care of herself. She’s navigating through her college years and wants to inspire others to live well while living on campus.

So, without further ado, I’m here to announce that the H is also for…
Hemlines & Higher Ed.

Cathlyn will be posting her fashion and beauty tips and may also be sharing her ideas for living well in all aspects of college life! You can shop her looks as well as mine in the shop section above! I know you’ll think she’s as darling as I think she is!

Welcome, Cacky!!


Suede Vest // Hemlines & Higher Ed // www.thehisfor.com


This outfit is perfect for celebrating a birthday out, dinner with girl friends, or a date night with BAE. I paired this black suede vest by Jakett with a black turtleneck, black skinnies and OTK black boots.

I kept the accessories simple, yet bold. I love these cat-eyed sunnies and I wear this black Celine bag everywhere!

I love this long, suede vest because it can be worn with any color and many different garments under it! I’d also pair it with long sleeve dresses; jumpsuits, or rompers. They’d all go perfectly with this bold piece. I suggest wearing the vest with some type of heeled shoe since it is a bit long!

FYI… Does this suede vest look familiar? Chandler wore it in brown in this post from back in September! You can shop this vest HERE and get the rest of the outfit below:

Have a great week!
