Casual Weekend Outfit

Hello Hello!!!  Weekends are for casual days and trying not to think about work.  Or at least that is how I strive to live on a weekend.  I don’t like to make a lot of big decisions on the weekend.   So last week I was home visiting my family and and I kind of just threw on some clothes, from what I brought home.  I paired it with the only booties I brought home and I just love this outfit.

(lol I filtered one and not the other, sorry.  I thought it made me look like a ghost so I didn’t do it on the second one and didn’t go back and change the first one)

Alright, so these are probably my most comfortable pair of jeans.  They are skinney jeans but they are not very tight.  I paired them with this gray V-neck shirt that I bleach painted the outline of my home state one it, the shirt just came from Target.  It was nothing really special but I love the gold detail right around the neck.  Now for anyone who travels you know that you only bring one of the chunky clothes home, so this was the only cardigan that I brought home.  And it looks amazing with this outfit.

This cardigan has the waterfall front but on the front it has this really cool woven patter on the front.  It really adds a very interesting detail to the front of the cardigan.  It is really amazing because it is not too bulky but still warm enough.  So it is a little bit more expensive then what I typically pay for, but I love it and it is very worth it.  I have had this cardigan for a few weeks and have worn it so often.

I finished the outfit off with the only pair of booties that I brought home.  Now I am really good in heels so I can wear these all day without having an issue.  But this outfit would look the same with booties that did not have a heel.  (I have been looking for a pair of booties like this but have been unable to find some that I like).

Got Me Some New Booties

Hello Hello!!  So if you pay attention to my instagram or the photos I post on here you will probably notice that these are not exactly new but I have not posted about them so I thought I would now that I have worn them a few times!  So I was looking for a pair of flat booties since all the ones I currently own all have heels.  Now as you can see I failed at doing that since these do have heels.  Damnit!! haha.  But sometimes you cannot pass up a great pair of shoes.

These boots are amazing.  I was actually a little concerned with how high the boot shaft went up, I was expecting them to have a shorter shaft.  I was a little worried about how to style them since all of my other booties are shorter.  But I have been styling them the same as my other booties and have been wanting to wear them with some leggings to show off my legs.

So there is no zipper on these which is kind of annoying but there is enough stretch in them to get them on and off with ease.  I have worn these all day at work and I have worn them all night when going out.  I am going to say that I am very good in heels but these were very comfortable and I had no issues wearing them.

I would recommend these boots to you, they are very comfortable and look really good when I wear them out.

Midweek Casual Day

What What!!  I love when these days randomly come around at work.  For those of you that work in an office and have to dress business casual or business formal you know that any day that you do not have to wear the required clothing is an amazing day.  I personally do not like to wear work pants but the minute I am allowed to wear jeans I am about that life.  Haha.

Boots and Sweater Season!!  I love wearing this black sweater, it is just so chill and has a great lace up detail on the back.  It is one of my favorite pieces that I bought last year.  The casual vibe of a large sweater is the best.  I paired it with these heeled booties.  I cuffed the jeans to my the boots more of a statement.  I loved how comfy this outfit was.

It is actually not too cold here so I only needed my light trench coat today when I was walking to and from work.  This outfit is really a fall favorite of mine and I tend to wear variations of this look all season.

New Vest

Hello Hello!!  So last fall there was this really cute vest that was everywhere.  It was tweed and had pockets and looked really great all around.  I found it on a boutique site but it was kind of expensive and I had already bought a vest so I decided not to buy it.  This year I saw the vest again, but it was on Amazon and it was a fraction of the price, this vest.

I really like this vest because it has pockets which are really key when you are trying to walk the dog and not take a purse.  That is the main reason that I bought this vest to be able to wear on walks.  Working it into the rest of my wardrobe is just icing on the cake.

I usually do not like the puffer vest look because I just don’t think that it does anything beneficial for the female figure.  Which for the most part I still think is true.  This vest is an exception, it is not very puffy but it is still warm as well as the tweed pattern.  These combine to make a really great buy.  I highly recommend this vest.

Casual Sunday Outfit

Hello Hello!!  I love Sundays, they are my day to basically do whatever I want on my own time schedule.  Which if left to my own devices I will usually stay home and chill with my dog, we just clean, watch some TV, cook for the week and then we mix in some walks.  When I do have plans on Sunday I try to have my outfit be chill, casual, and comfy.  Which usually means some sort of workout gear because I always fit a workout in on Sunday.

How to make your workout gear work when going outside the gym and not look out of place?

So I didn’t make too many changes to what I wore to workout and what I wore to meet up with my friend.  So these tights I cannot tell you how amazing they are, they have these great mesh inserts on the front and the back (sorry they are super hard to get a good picture of).  They are from Reebok, where I buy almost all my workout pants, they are not available any more otherwise I would link them.

So I changed out my workout tank, because it was gross, with this T-shirt.  It is just this really basic cotton T from Target, I did bleach the outline of Wisconsin, my home state, on there which I think looks really cool.  I am ok wearing it with tights because it is long enough to go to the tops of my thighs.

Then I just added a cool jacket.  This one is a really awesome cargo jacket since I was going to a really chill style.  But you could do almost any jacket to change up the look you are going to.  Heading to a bar?  Add a leather moto jacket.  Going to brunch?  Add a long and lose duster like jacket.  Heading out to run some errands or just be around town?  Add a trench coat.

Tailoring is Key

Hello Hello!!!  So as some of you may know or have noticed I am a short person.  I am 5’2 and a half.  Being this short I have perfected climbing on the counters in order reach things, jumping in grocery stores in order to get what I want.  But clothing for the most part is not too much of an issue.  Tops are super easy because I just have short legs.  Pants I don’t have too much of an issue because you can buy those with a specific inseam.

Skirts I have to be a little bit more careful about because they tend to be styled for a taller person in mind.  I have been looking for a pleated skirt in a metallic color, not sure why.  I found this skirt, it is designed to be a midi so I was kind of concerned because midis tend to be maxis on me.

So it basically looks like a short maxi, so my worry was valid.  But this skirt was pretty cheap so I just intended on hemming it myself.  The hem on this skirt is pretty unfinished so I figured I could straight cut it and have no issues, and if it frayed it would only get shorter which I did not have issues with.  (if it continued to fray it might end up as a mini and I think I like the look of that)  Anyways I decided to cut 3 inches off (I am not typically a sewer so if I can fix this skirt you can too).

I personally think it looks so much better as an actual midi length.  So do not be afraid to hem anything or go to the tailor to get something professionally hemmed, it is worth it.  Now I love this skirt, and I cannot wait to wear it out.  The left was just for comparison sake to show you the same outfit again.  The right was right after I finished hemming it so ignore the straps of my sports bra under the shirt.

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.
