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.

Travel outfit

Hello hello!!! So I was traveling this past weekend to Chicago. I love Chicago and had an amazing time. But Chicago in March isn’t always warm. So planning a travel outfit for the temperamental weather is a tough.

To Chicago.

So I was trying to layer up and bring a few coats that I wouldn’t have to pack in my bag. So I wore a pair of basic jeans with a grey vneck. I wore a bomber jacket over a fleece.
In the end I decided to wear my military boots. I did have a debate in my head about this but decided these were best. They have a zipper on the side which makes getting through security easier. Also wearing these means I didn’t have to pack them.

On the way back

On the way back I stuck to the basics. The military boots and skinny jeans. On top of wore a flowy sheer navy top, it was light and easy for flights. Layers are best when flying so I wore my grandpa cardigan. I also wore my fleece just didn’t picture it.

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.
