Week Night Quick Outfit Flip

Hello Hello!!! Now weeknights for everyone are hectic, and this week especially was very  hectic and busy.  I felt like I was running around the entire time and I had no time for my work out.  Well one day this week I was meeting my friend for a late dinner so I figured I could fit in a quick workout before heading to dinner.  But I had to do a quick flip from my sweaty gym clothes to a cute outfit.

I even took this picture post workout, hence the fact that my face is super red.  I did cardio this day so I was real gross.  Anyways how do you go from this to presentable for a dinner.  I decided to keep the outfit real simple, just skinny jeans and a v-neck noting too fancy.

I think the change went really well, there wasn’t a way to fully take care of the red checks but I think the outfit looked really chill and put together even when I was like 30 minutes post workout.  I did have a debate about the shoes right up until I left, and I actually changed into a pair of Toms flats.

So the key to a quick change was really just keeping it simple no frills just jeans and a T-shirt.  I also had the outfit picked out in my head prior to going to the gm otherwise I would have been super lazy.

Take your Saturday outfit to a night outfit

Hello hello!! Last Saturday was pretty chill my friends had a grill out and then we decided to go out.  It was kind of colder out so I decided to wear jeans.  My plan was to wear something chill to the cookout and then change before we went out.

I just felt like wearing leopard print, I hadn’t worn this shirt in awhile so it felt fun and free.  I paired it with some dark skinned jeans and my black Tom’s.  I tucked in the front of the shirt to highlight my waist, which is something that I usually do for loose tanks.  I brought a cardigan along because it was kind of colder.

(Please ignore my dogs butt she refused to move). So I actually thought I was going to change more when I was thinking about my outfit in my head.  I originally wanted to change my shirt but I was feeling lazy.  So when I got back to my place to do a quick change I decided to just put on some heeled booties.  I out on these black booties with the slit on the side, these aren’t my favorite boots but I thought they looked more summery then closed toe boots.

White Dress

Hello Hello!!  I have been looking for a chill white dress for awhile now and just have not been able to find the right fit for summer.  I even spent part of last summer looking and could not find one.  I am not sure the one I found is exactly what I am looking for but I am content with it.

Here is the dress that I bought, its pretty plain and the material is not what I would have expected (kind of like a sweatshirt material, really weird).

Just a regular shift dress with some black ties, I like it without any frills.  I like the basic white dress.  I wore this to my friends birthday party which was a pool party.  I was worried the entire time that I would ruin it on the first outing but we made it through fine.  Now initially I wanted to wear the dress like this, without any frills, but thought about it and was like maybe I should put my waist back into the outfit.

So I added a black belt to the dress

I love the black belt, really pulled the dress into make my waist look small.  Also love this new bag.  So actually it was really hot out so I did eventually drop the belt because it was making me too sweaty to keep on.

Flats

Hello hello!!  Now I want to put a disclaimer out there, I hate wearing flats.  They always tend to hurt my feet and give me blisters.  I have only ever found 1 pair that I actually like and could wear.  I gave up trying to find flats that worked years ago, I’ve been passing off my Toms as flats or just wearing heels.

Anyways the other day I was looking on Amazon and I found a pair that had rave reviews.  I was hesitant, it took me over 2 months to convince myself to buy them.  My issues were that they were 1 flats and 2 that they had straps over the ankles.  This worries me because I don’t want a strap there to highlight my ankles (which aren’t really that slim).  So eventually I convinced myself to buy them.

So I bought them in leopard print, I know bold choice (not really this print can be used as a neutral).  I also bought these because the ankle strap is a brown/ nude color which made me feel better about having the ankle strap. 

So I wore them to work few days this week and surprise surprise they did not give me blisters.  They were actually really comfortable and I felt like I could wear them all day without taking them off.  I was super surprised.

I love lace shirts

Hello hello!!! I don’t know about you but I absolutely love lace shirts.  I have almost no control when I see one I like, I need to buy it and add to my wardrobe.  Sometimes there is lining and sometimes there is not.  They just give this sophisticated vibe but also a sleek/ sexy edge that I love.

Anyways, I was in Milwaukee this weekend for Summerfest, if you don’t know what that is it’s an 11 day music festival and it’s awesome.  So I went on the forth and the temp was almost 80 during the day but once the sun went down it was going to drop, and the festival is on a lake so it’s a little cooler.  So I was deciding what to wear, I knew pants would be best but the top was up in the air.  I was having a debate between 2 new lace shirts.

So my debate was between wearing white lace or black lace.  The white lace shirt is not lined but with how the lace is it’s not too noticable.  My plan is to not wear an undershirt when I wear it going out, it will have an edge.  I was wearing it with a nudish bra but I feel like when I wear it to a bar a black bra will look sweet.  The black lace shirt is a crop top and it does have lining in it.  I’m not sure if I’m a fan of it being lined but the shirt looks great none the less.  I like that it showed off my stomach.  So both these shirts would be breathable for the day time but provide enough coverage that at night it would be warm enough.

So which one did I wear?  I personally loved the white lace outfit, because it was white and was longer.  My sister loved the black one because she thought it looked better.  So we had a disagreement, then I took pictures and decided to wear the black lace top.  It was amazing and worked out well.

I cannot wait to wear both of these in the future.

We are going out

Hello hello!! Weather took a turn and it actually got a little chilly here over the weekend.  I had to go dig out a pair of jeans to wear out this weekend.  Which was weird in itself, as it’s June and I usually like to keep them tucked away all winter.


I mean it’s still summer so I couldn’t not wear these sandals, they just call to me because I love them so much.  Anyways it was my friend’s birthday and we were getting dinner and then going out for drinks so I wanted something casual but still dressy.  I went with these burgundy colored pants and a sheer tanks.  Even though it did get colder it was still hot so wearing the sheer shirt really balanced out the outfit.  My legs were covered and warm by the pants and my top was sheer and very breathable.

Let’s chill outside

Hello hello!!  So the college world series is in town and it is swealtering out.  I want to talk about ideas on how to choose an outfit that will be breathable during the day but still stylish enough to easily transition to a night outfit.

This is the outfit that I wore, I loved it and was very comfortable.  I wore these blue blue shorts, that are neither tight nor lose, they fit perfectly. I paired it with this white shirt that is super lose and billows in the wind and is just really breathable. I tucked in the front of the shirt to highlight my waist.

So why did this outfit work?  First the shorts weren’t super tight so they were very breathable and since they weren’t skin tight I didn’t think they were sticking to me the whole time. Second the shirt was key, picking a shirt that will billows in the wind was the best idea I had.  It was like getting hit with the wind twice.  This shirt in particular is awesome, because it has a lace detail going down the back so it kept my back cool.
