Polka Dots are Back

Hello Hello!!  So a few months ago I was just looking for something with polka dots, I don’t know why but I was really like I need some dots in my life.  So I was kind of looking all over the place for a dress that I really just loved.  I found myself on asos.com which i think has the best selection of all the sites I looked at.

Now this is the dress that I bought

So yes this is a screenshot of the dress I bought.  So as you can see it is a midi length dress which as I am a short person can be a little bit of a problem.  So I forgot to take any pics of the dress before I started messing with the hem.  Now at first I was a little hesitant given how big the print was but after I got it I knew it would work.

So I messed around with the hem to get it a little bit better of a length, now I did this myself with a pair of scissors and drew on the hem of another of my dresses that I like.  I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone else, I was okay with if I messed up I was out a dress or I was going to cut the hem shorter and make a mini dress.  But I you are a little bit more worried I would recommend a tailor.

So I went with a rounded hem that comes up on the side and is a tiny bit longer in the back.  Honestly after I went after it with the scissors I was no sure how it would go.  But the minute I put it on and looked in the mirror I loved how this hem worked out.  The dress I copied was a tighter dress so I wasn’t sure how it would work out.  I LOVE IT!!  I am actually surprised how much I love it.

This is the type of dress that I really like so much.  It is lose but has this cinched waist that really stands out.  I honestly have not worn this out yet (black long sleeve dress doesn’t go well in summer).  But I am excited to mess around with styling it.  I think it will look really good with belts.

New favorite LBD

Hello hello!!! So awhile ago I was looking through Amazon and some how ended up looking Daily Ritual items (I think this is an Amazon brand). And I stumbled across this dress.

(Please ignore the bed, I was travelling for work so I just use one bed as my bags place so that is why it is a mess).

I just want to say I bought this to be a comfy casual dress so I ordered a size up, I usually wear a size S but this time I bought a M.  I even think I could go larger to get a more slouchy fit but I really like how this one fits right now.  So this dress was only $20 which is probably why I just decided to try it.  I am so happy about this dress, the material is this really soft stretchy fabric.  It is just really comfortable to wear.

Given the cut of the dress, it is one that you can dress up with some heels, a belt and a nice jacket.  What is really great about this is that it can also be casual, wear some sneakers (vans or toms) and it is a chill day dress.  I have been dying to wear this on a date but alas if you read this you know my dating life is in slow-mo so we will see.

I just love to put it on, it clings in all the right places and makes me feel good.  I wore this to walk a dog I love it so much.

First Few Nights Out in a New City

Hello Hello!!! Yet again I have been MIA for an extended period of time.  It was not my intention but I was moving and the old apartment was a wreck and then I moved and the new apartment was a wreck.  Then I just felt like exploring the new city and I just kind of got a little lost.  Also the lighting in my new place makes taking mirror selfies dim (I am working on it).

Any ways the first few nights I went out, it was kind of a range of temperatures.  The first weekend was really warm and the second weekend was actually cold.  This is what you get when you live in the midwest.  Spoiler alert I moved to Chicago, which is much closer to my family.

So I wore one of my favorite new dresses, this one is really causal but can be dressed up with heels and some nice earrings.  I love going out in this one especially if I go dancing since it has slits up both sides.  Makes it fun to move around in when dancing.  I typically hold the bottom and dance around.  Had a very fun time.

Next Weekend

Ahh the cold weekend which I actually kind of loved.  It was mid 70s during the day and got down to mid 60s at night.  Which made wearing jeans possible.  I love pairing my black skinny jeans with some of my lace tops.  This one is especially one of my favorites due to the opening in the back.  I went for flats because I am lazy.

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.

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.
