The struggle of picking an outfit when it’s too hot

Hello hello!!  Gah, picking out an outfit when it’s way too hot out is super difficult, made even worse when you are trying to pick out an outfit for a date.  I want to look good and be cool but also not sweat through all my clothes.

At first I was all about wearing shorts because man it’s was like 90° out and I wanted to be cool.

So I love these blue shorts I think they just scream summer, and I’ve worn them out paired with this shirt before when I go out and love it.  But this violates one of my hard and fast rules of not wearing shorts on a date. (Just want to hide the back of my thighs forever).  So I was having a large discussion in my head to wear this or put on pants.  And…. Pants won because this is what I changed into.

Yes, I gave into the desire to hide my legs.  I decided that it was afternoon so it would start getting colder so I could stick it out until it gets cooler and then I’ll be fine.  I love this outfit too, the black shirt half tucked into a light pair of jeans is a favorite outfit of mine.

Let me know your thoughts, should I have changed or not.

Decisions decisions

Hello hello!! So this past weekend it was kind of cold and raining a bit, obviously the best thing to wear is boots.  So I was wearing skinny jeans and wanted to pair them with a cute pair of booties.

So the options are brown or black.

So yes, this outfit is very similar and does not change too much with the change of the shoes.  The brown boots stick out a bit more and catch a little more attention.  The rest of the outfit is muted and so allows the brown boots to be louder.  The black boots in this outfit are a little more go with the flow.  But then the heel of the boots pops out due to the metallic heal.

So which did I chose?  I went with the brown boots to make a little bit more of a statement.  I kind of went to a dive bar and the black boots felt a little too fancy.

Let me know your thoughts.

Zara

Hello Hello!!  Now I know some of you guys are like how did you not know about Zara.  Well to answer that question, I have lived in places that did not have a Zara.  And yes that is a very sad day that I never was able to shop there prior to my trip to the Twin Cities.

So any ways recently I went to the Twin Cities and there is a very large Zara in the Mall of America.  This store is amazing there is something in this store for everyone.  I do not shop at malls very often so I wasn’t buying anything but the one place I wanted to stop before we left was Zara.  I just want to say the minute I walked in I saw so many things I wanted to try on.  I was talking through the store just picking up things left and right to try on.

I bought a few things – I talked about the first one already, this green dress.

Second – I bought this coat

This coat is just a really soft casual coat.  It is just a big slouch coat that goes down to mid-thigh.  The length I thought would be weird but actually when worn with tight clothes it looks really good.  Like here were I paired it with skinny jeans and a tight top.  I have also worn this to work when I wear a work dress.

Lastly I bought this amazing all over lace bell sleeved top.

I absolutely love all over lace tops, I think they are so feminine and romantic and lately these types of shirts have been my speed.  I have been looking to try bell sleeves for a while and this shirt kind of was just amazing when I tried it on.  I didn’t think I would like the color but I actually do.  The V-neck on this shirt is amazing, it is cut perfectly.  The V-neck is cut narrow and deep which is great because it shows off your cleavage without being too much.

Emerald Dress

Hello Hello!!  A few weeks ago I meet up with one of my best friends and I actually went to a mall for the first time in forever.  (I hate malls, I think they are overly crowded).  Anyways while we were walking around I didn’t really see anything I liked until we got to the last store and then I wanted to buy everything.  What was the last store?  Zara!  I am going to share my thoughts on Zara in a later post but I wanted to rave about one specific thing I bought.

Ahh I love shift dresses, they are so lose and free to be styled however you want.  This shift dress caught my eye right when I walked in the door.  The ruffled sleeves are super cute.  Combined with the v-neck of this dress.  I just want to say the cut of the v-neck is perfect, its low but does not show too much cleavage.  Actually the bright red color of this dress caught my attention but it was not in my size.  I hesitated with the green because its not usually my color but my friend convinced me to try it on anyways.

I am so happy I did, this dress fit me perfectly and at that point I could not leave the store without it.  And the green color is amazing, since I have blue eyes I usually avoid that color but I really liked how this dress looked.

Reebok Workout Pants

Hello Hello!!  I just wanted to take a minute and rave about my favorite workout pants.  It is not even a specific pair, it is just Reebok workout pants in general.  In my opinion they are the best.  I workout everyday, I do some cardio, some circuit, and I love Barre classes.  So I do a little bit of everything in a given week of working out.

I absolutely love my Reebok workout pants, I must own like 6 pairs of them.  If I get a coupon code I am very likely to use it because I love them and I will use them all the time.

Why do I love them?  First, they are not see through, if you are a girl you know what I am talking about.  Whenever I am working out and doing squats it is my top concern if you can see through the workout pants.  Second, the cut of the pants, most of the pants that I buy are high-waisted.  I love this, I never have to worry about keeping them up.   Next, they are all speedwick so they move the sweat away from your body.  Lastly, the style of these pants are great, they are unique and cool so I love to wear them.

So my favorite pair are the ones on the right, Mest Moves Tights, they are no longer available but I love them so much I bought two last year.  The Middle purple ones I really like the style and mesh inserts on these, also bought these last year and they are not available any more.  The ones on the left are new and so amazing I am thinking about buying a second pair.  These Lux Tights are so amazing, they are so soft and so comfortable I would love to wear them all the time.  I highly recommend these pants or literally almost any workout pants by Reebok.

To help you figure out what size, they do tend to run large.  I typically wear a size small, 4 in pants (US) or my Levi jean size is 26.  But in Reebok workout pants I buy x-smalls and have never had to send any back.

Stevie Nicks Concert

Hello Hello!!  So exciting, I went and saw the legendary Stevie Nicks in concert!!  Seeing her in concert was on my bucket list of concerts I want to go to, as well as Fleetwood Mac.  (If you do not know who that is please look her up she is amazing)

So what do you wear to a Stevie Nicks concert?  She is the queen of boho chic.  Obviously you wear something lace!

Actually to be honest I forgot to take a picture, was probably too excited to leave and get to the concert, but I actually wore a pair of booties.  I know booties in August, but I saw her in Minnesota and no one told the Twin Cities it was summer out.  So the booties actually went with the boho chic vibe I was going for.

By the way the concert was amazing, I highly suggest going to see her.
