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.

A Day for the Irish

Hello Hello!!  St. Patty’s day is on a Saturday it will be fun they say, it will be a great time.  Haha.  I kid it was a pretty normal day I actually went about like it was a normal Saturday.

But what do you do when you go into your closet and you realize you do not own any green.  I have no idea why this is one of the only colors that I do not own anything in, but it just is.  I just do not look in good in green as I do in blue so I usually do not buy green.  So a few days ago I was in a predicament that I had no green and St. Patty’s day was around the corner.  So I just wore one of my olive green jackets and hoped that counted.  Many a people did ask where my green was and I just shrugged I wasn’t going to go out and buy a color that I don’t typically like to wear for one day.

So in order to highlight the fact that this jacket is in fact green I wore all black.  I wore black skinny jeans with a black sheer top, I didn’t tuck the top in at all just left it as a more casual look.  Weirdly its still cold outside so I wore a pair of over the knee boots, mostly to keep me warm since the rest of this outfit is not very warm.  To top it all of my bomber jacket.

Over the Knee Boots

Hello Hello!!  Sorry for being absent for a little while there, I was trying to figure out my life and what I wanted to do.  Still haven’t quite figured it out but I know one thing I want to do, I want to move to a bigger city so I will try to make that happen.  In the mean time I will try to not be an absent blogger in the future.

So have you guys ever found an item of clothing that you absolutely loved but talked yourself out of buying because you don’t really need it?  Well I have done this a few times and most recently with a pair of over the knee boots.  I love them and every time I saw someone on instagram wearing them I wanted them even more.  But I didn’t buy them every time because I figured I had a pair kind of like them, which I did have a pair of over the knee boots already in grey.

So I just kept the page up on my browser and would look at them every so often and think about buying them.  Then one time I looked and they were on sale, 40% off.  I would link these but they appear to be all sold out.  They are Vince Camuto over the knee boots.  So what I love about these are the details on the top and around the ankles.  They are these laser cut out pieces that add a lot of extra detail to boots that would otherwise not have any.  So long story short after a debate I bought them.  So happy about this purchase.

Now they are suede so you do have to seal them before you wear them in order to protect them from the elements.  I have used a few different products to do seal my suede clothes and shoes and have been happy with it, this one or this one.

But once I sealed these boots and it wasn’t raining out, I was all about wearing these boots out and about.  The suede is seriously the softest I have felt and they just feel luxurious.  I love wearing them, I wore them on back to back days at work, no regrets.  Yes it is getting warmer out so I am trying to get as much out of them as I can before I retire them for the season.

I will say that they are a little tight on my calves, I thought I would have a little room but once I put on skinny jeans there is not much.  They are for 15 inch calves which should provide me with enough breathing room but I think they are a little smaller then 15 inches.

Rachel Zoe Winter Box of Style Review

Hello Hello!!  Now I am going to be very honest that this box was not shipped very quickly so I was really annoyed that it barely came in time for the new year.  With that in mind I want to talk about the winter box.  Now I debate cancelling my subscription for this every time it comes up because it is a lot of money.  It is $99 for each season, which I can do but I always think it is a lot of money.

Maker:L,Date:2017-8-31,Ver:5,Lens:Kan03,Act:Kan02,E-ve

The winter 2017 RZ box of style is by far the best one I have gotten, it is my favorite.  I opened it and unwrapped everything and was just super excited about what Rachel Zoe picked.  I couldn’t wait to wear the accessories.

So what did Rachel Zoe send?  She sent a box clutch (I chose marble print), House of Harlow earrings (Yes Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow), faux fur scarf, liquid eyeliner pen, essential hydrating oil, and a planner.  (I am least excited about the planner, mostly because I use my phone but maybe it will force me to write things down more.

Box clutch

Ahh!! I love it!!  This is great, you could pick it in the marble with gold accents to black with silver accents.  Both were really amazing and I would not have minded either but I like gold more than silver right now so that is the one I picked.  This clutch is big enough for your credit cards, phone and any other essentials.  I also love that it comes with a cross body strap, so it is very convenient to carry when out.

Earrings

They are gold and skarlie and they dangle.  They frame your face so well.  These earrings are just so amazing, they can literally go with anything.  In the pic on the left I am just wearing them with a sweatshirt and they feel amazing.  The one downside is that they are a little heavy, but since I wear them out I am not too concerned about that.

In the words of Rachel Zoe from the unboxing video “No one is going to punish you for being glamorous.”   You tell it Rachel Zoe.

Faux Fur Scarf

Maker:L,Date:2017-8-31,Ver:5,Lens:Kan03,Act:Kan02,E-ve

This scarf makes me feel so fancy and put together when I go out in the winter.  I am not normally a scarf person, I for the most part only wear them in the winter and think they get in the way the rest of the time.  This scarf is great, it is warm and a perfect length. Long enough to be beneficial but not too long to be in the way.  I love that one has a hole so you can thread the other side through it.

Others (eyeliner, hydrating oil and planner)

Don’t get me wrong I love these two but much harder to take a picture of.  The eyeliner is really great, creates a nice smooth line.  I use eyeliner every day so I use it all the time.  Hydrating oil is supposed to replace your lotion, I am not really a fan of the peppermint smell but it does work.  The planner is making me try to organize my life a little more.  It has these great quotes in it every month.  Here are a few,

Rachel Zoe: “style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”

Meryl Streep: “be strong enough to let go and wise enough to wait for what you deserve”

Diane Von Furstenberg: “life is very short. insecurity is a waste of time”

I Went On A Date!

Hello Hello!!  I know I know, surprise surprise I never go on these.  I am a little surprised to go on one.  But it has been like 5 months since my last one so I guess I was due.  Haha.  Maybe in the new year I will be more open to more people and go on more of these, but probs not.

Anyways, we went to this neighborhood of town where you kind of just walk about and get drinks and look at art.  So dressing for a date where we are going to be outside walking and then inside having some drinks was a little difficult, I don’t really enjoy being cold.

So I went with dark skinny jeans because I think they look best on me, I paired those with these grey over the knee boots that I love so much.  On top since my bottoms are so tight I wanted a looser top.  I wore this lose white top, it is a short sleeve top so I felt my my arms needed more protection even if I was going to wear a coat so I added my burgundy cardigan.  Then for extra added sparkle I wore this necklace.

As I said before the date plan was to send a significant amount of time outside, which in January isn’t the best idea so I needed a coat.

Maker:L,Date:2017-8-31,Ver:5,Lens:Kan03,Act:Kan02,E-ve

I wore my classic black wool coat.  I wanted to wear a hat so badly but I always feel like I cannot wear a hat on a date because it will mess up any time I spent doing my hair. So instead I wore this pho- fur scarf.  I really liked how it looked and thought it kept me warm enough without needing a hat.

Night On The Town

Hello Hello!! So I did not go home for the holidays, I chose to spend Thanksgiving with my family and fend from myself around christmas.  Well a few of my friends were also in town and away from their families so we went out.  This was one of those times where you choose to go last minute so you are changing from sweats into something much better.  I kind of just went into my closet and this is what I ended up with.  I am so happy about it, I can’t wait to wear them again.

I love wearing my loose tank tops tucked into my skinny jeans.  It just elongates my short legs (so I will take all the help I can get there), and makes my waist a little bit more pronounced.  I do love wearing a black skinny jean out, I think they just look the best and also hide any issues with my legs.

So as I stated it is winter here and I do get chilly so I added a cardigan to just make the outfit a little bit warmer.  It didn’t matter too much because no one was out that night, my friends and I basically had the whole bar to ourselves.  I didn’t take a picture but I wore this with my faux black leather jacket.  I did this because it was snowing a little bit and the jacket blocks the wind.

I loved how this outfit looked with these booties (I am biased because they are my favorite), but I think they looked amazing.

What to wear to NYE?

Hello Hello!!  Is it really this time of year again?  I hate making these big decisions (haha eye roll).  But I do feel like I have no idea what to wear, and the only thing that I want to wear is the dress I wore last year.  Which I have already eliminated on the off chance that someone besides me remembers that I wore it.  haha.  Now the search through my closet for an outfit will commence.

A Classic Sequin Dress

 

Ah yes NYE is all about the sequin dresses.  This is the only sequin dress I currently still own, I find that as I get older I buy less and less sequin dresses, who would have thought.  Haha.  I like this dress because a shift dress is exactly my style, I love wearing these dresses, especially on a night when I am dancing. (I have actually not worn this dress before and I have been looking for reason to wear it).  This would be the perfect opportunity to wear it.  I am going to say I am a little hesitant to wear it because I have some other better options.

A Classic Black Dresss

So a black dress with a twist, this dress actually has velvet all over it.  When I bought it I absolutely loved it and thought I would for sure wear it for new years.  But after trying it on a few time I am not so sure.  I really like the dress but I feel like it is not as flattering to my figure as I initially thought.  So I am still up in the air on this dress.  I think it may look amazing with a leather jacket on a date.  (If I ever go on another date that is…).

An Amazing Skirt Styled Numerous Ways

I will order them from my favorite to my least favorite (now I love all of them because this skirt is probably my favorite piece in my wardrobe right now and any excuse to wear it is fine by me).

Ahh, I love it, I love this skirt, I love this shirt.  I have only worn both of them once but really try to wear them more.  I the contrast between the black top and the gold bottom.  The top accents the bottom really nicely with the deep V that is outlined with gold beading.  I think this outfit just speaks New Years Eve.  Its gold and sparkly without having sequins all over it.  I feel like this is a grown up way to be sparkly.  I would wear a pair of large gold earrings and purse TBD.  My one hesitation, is my hesitation all the time with the skirt, it makes me look short.

I love it again!!  I feel like this outfit has a little more of an old Hollywood.  I think the burgundy lace really offer this outfit a classy elegance.  I love wearing this top and just a bra underneath it is a very understated sexy, because you cannot really tell without looking closely.  I think the top really compliments the skirt because the lace compliments the skirt.  I would style this with some big gold earrings again, purse TBD.

Last but not least this outfit.  Now this was the first shirt I thought of to try on with this skirt, and I loved it.  It has a very classy elegance to it.  Now why is it my least favorite?  Well, after going through the above 2 outfits doesn’t this one just feel a little bit boring?  I get the feeling that it is boring.  Not that I wouldn’t wear this outfit to some other function but I think the other two just scream NYE a little bit more then this one.

Ahh, I love this skirt.  I actually just bought a burgundy velvet top, that should be here before NYE that I am going to try with this skirt as well.

So we will see where we end up.
