Day Trip

Hello Hello!! So as I previously said I am moving and actually moving pretty far so I had to take a day trip to look at apartments. So this is what I wore when I was wondering around a new city looking at new apartments and exploring in general. I wanted something comfortable, breathable, and what I can wear all day while being moving. Also in case of the worst happening and I missed my flight home I brought a large tote that I carried an extra set of clothes.

First and fore most I wore this cargo jacket with all its pockets, which are essential when travelling. I love wearing this jacket when I am in the airport, it allows easy access to the pockets that are helpful when going through security and getting on the plane. Also for convenience this tote bag is a travelling essential to me. I literally bring this every time that I travel, it has great internal pockets and fits under the seat in front of me so its convenient for travelling.

So I went for casual and and loose. I know I say loose and yes I am wearing skinny jeans but skinny jeans are part of my casual wardrobe. So I went with my favorite skinny jeans and cuffed the bottom. I wore this loose polka doted top that was airy and comfortable to wear all the time. Finally I wore these Toms sneakers because I love them and thought they would be super comfortable. Typically they are very comfortable, I will concede they are not made for walking around for 12 hours in, but I dealt with that.

Weekend of Fun (CWS)

Hello Hello!!! So yes this is the one weekend it is actually fun to live in Omaha (in my opinion).  The College World Series is in town which means that there is fun to be had all around.  So since this is the last one I will experience while living here I plan to enjoy it.  And the weather decided that 100 degrees was going to be the average.  So what does one where when it is hot and humid but you still want to be outside.

I typically live by wearing something that is easy breezy and will not annoy you.  Also for those of you who like to drink when you are out, I always try to live by what will be easy when I have a beer bladder.  Now this time around I broke one of my rules, No Rompers.

So why do I have this rule to begin with?  Well when you need to go to the bathroom in a romper you need to take it all off.  So typically when I know I will be drinking a lot I avoid the romper.  But I did wear one out this time.

Ahh this is the kind of romper I love, it has no structure, its very lose, fabric is comfortable, fabric is stretchy, and there is an elastic band at the waist.  This is a very comfortable romper.  I like that I do not need to wear a special bra but can just throw one on.  It just was a very comfortable one piece outfit that I did not have to worry about.

ALSO IT HAS POCKETS.  Although if you put stuff in the pockets it does look odd but thats not the point there are useful pockets.  So my biggest concern with the romper was the bathroom but once wearing it out it was not that big of a deal.  Since the fabric stretched it was easy to get on and off.  As long as you got used to being in the bathroom in just your bra.

I finished the outfit with a pair of flat gold sandals, I was on my feet all night outside and walking through beet tents.  It is just easier to wear flats then to try to wear any sort of heels.  I wore these beautiful white fringe earrings, I wanted to dress up by basic black outfit and these earrings were light enough that they did not bother my ears.  They also did not feel to dressy for the occasion.

For the next night I went with an outfit along similar lines.

I wore a pair of graphic shorts, with a basic white tank that has a pretty low V.  Given how hot it was outside I just went with a basic bralette.  This is probably my most comfortable bralette and I love wearing it when it is too hot for a normal bra.  And it is currently on sale, it does not appear they have the black that I am wearing but I loved this so much I actually bought it in the white that I linked.

All in all I went for a really casual vibe for both nights, you just want to be comfy when you are having a good time bumming outside.

U2 Concert

Hello Hello!!  Last weekend my neighbors gave me free U2 tickets (I know FREE).  I was pretty excited about this and its the first concert I have gone to in awhile. The entire week leading up to this I was thinking about what to wear, initially I wanted to wear a new pair of shorts I bought but then the weather took a turn for the worse and shorts seemed like a less than ideal option.

So I went with the very classic dark blue skinny jean, I paired it with this great tank top.  I tucked the top into the skinny jeans.  I am very much feeling the monochromatic look, or at least close to it.  I paired it with these great lace up sandals.  Finally accessorizing with these great earrings made by this local artist.

I tucked the bottom of my skinny jeans into the top of the lace up sandals.  I did this because I didn’t want to roll my jeans up to show the top of the sandals.  Since I figured I wasn’t really show casing the shoes and tucking the pants in would stream line the look anyways.  I loved it, I don’t know why I haven’t done it before but it worked out pretty great.

Casual Night Out

Hello Hello!!  Sorry I know I have been MIA and I apologize, but on the upside I have figured my life out (at least I think so) and I will be moving soon!!  Ahh so exciting, I cannot wait.  And yes this is the reason I have been so lax on posting.

Anyways I bought a dress awhile back that I have been dying to wear.  I was curious on how it would look since it is midi length and I am a little on the short side.  I wondered if I would just look short in it.

I agree that it does cut my legs but since I belted the dress high I do not think it makes me look as short as I thought.  There is also slits on the side of the dress that goes to mid thigh that I think adds something to the look.

I have been dying to wear this dress because of how comfortable it is, initially I thought I could wear this as a summer dress on Friday.  As it turns out the neckline is much lower then I thought it was so I will not be wearing this to the office.  I am still happy I bought it, it is a super cute casual dress.  So my friend was visiting and we were getting some drinks, and it is really hot out so I thought why not this dress?  It worked really well for the occasion.

Lately I have been loving very low necklines, I am not really sure why.  But I have bought a few tank tops and dresses that have low necklines.  I am really feeling this trend.

Its My Birthday

Hello Hello!!!  Sorry for not posting, as I have stated before my life is a little in upheaval and I am trying to sort it out.  I will keep you posted about that.

Any ways it was my birthday this past weekend.  I didn’t really think too much about what I was going to wear.  Actually I had stuff going all day and when I got home I only had about 10 minutes to change before people started showing up to my house.  (Wish I had more time but oh well).

Yes yes yes, I did go all black and I have no regrets.  Black is such a flattering color and when I was in a time crunch it was just so easy.  I also wore this tunic shirt that has the really cute details across the bottom and sleeves.  I would link this but I bought this as a birthday present to myself and it was really a splurge,  if any one wants to know comments and I will update the blog with a link.  I personally love the look of this shirt and think it looks great but I am not sure it would translate well to other body types.

I paired it with these pleather leggings.  They look really good and hug my body but they are so easy and I barely notice I am wearing pants.  These leggings I actually cut the bottoms myself because they were way too long.  All and all I love this look, it is effortless and still put together.

Finished the outfit off with my nude suede heels that are my go to and a white/ light pink leather jacket.

Also when looking back at my birthday outfit last year I realize how predictable I am.  I wore a very similar outfit out last year, still love it and wear that top all the time.  I just had a good laugh over how much my choices had not changed.

My hair is curled in both, I am wearing a black deep V top and the exact same pair of pumps.  Hahaha, love it.

Casual Night Out

Hello hello!! Sorry I know I have been MIA, I’ve been trying to figure out some things in my life and just have had a lot of spare time. No news to share but will let you know if I have some.

Any ways last night just went to a casual dinner party at my friend’s place and then we had plans to go out and get a few drinks. I was being extra lazy and didn’t really want to change and also didn’t know what to wear.

So I stuck with my go to black skinny jeans. They just go with everything and I’ve broken them in so they are comfy to wear. Also since I’ve been wearing them so much they come with the added bonus of already being cuffed to wear with booties. I paired with a white lace top. I personally love lace and have worn this top with the undershirt as I did earlier and with out any undershirt. Of course I wore with a great pair of booties.

I love that winter is coming to an end but I love boots and will always try to wear them whenever I can.

When I left my place I grabbed one of my favorite jackets for spring, cargo jacket.

This jacket is great, I love the lining of it because it really adds an extra detail to this jacket.

Again Talking Reebok Workout Pants

Hello Hello!!  I know I know I have talk about how much I love Reebok workout pants before but almost every time I buy a new pair I just feel the need to tell everyone about them.  They are just so comfortable and great for any kind of workout that I do.

So I will admit that I love black which is why I typically buy all my workout pants in black.  But these pants do also come in blue and I might buy them again in this color.

So since I buy black pants I like to have little details that make them look cool.  These have two mesh panels that wrap around the back of my calf/ knees and the back of my thighs.  I was worried about the placement of the mesh behind the knees because sometimes it annoys me.  When I am working out I do tend to use my knees and I don’t want anything there that will bother me.  But actually after working out it did not bother me at all.

These also have a very high waist, I know that this is not something everyone looks for but with my butt I tend to like to have more fabric over my butt then not.  Don’t want them falling down when I am doing squats.  They are also a really great length for me, they go down to my ankles, which as a short person is really great.
