Day Time Art Exhibit

Hello Hello!!  So there has been this really chill art exhibit showing in town and I have been dying to go.  I convinced a friend and we went a little before noon before I had to meet up with someone for lunch.

Now I tend to struggle the most with dressing for casual events with friends, typically I want to dress up too much.  When I am by myself I never have to think about the fact that if I dress up too much me and my friends will look like an odd couple.  So I actually tried on this outfit first and decided against it.

So it is a pretty dark outfit.  I love this top with the lace details on the front and the back.  Paired this with these dark blue jeans and heeled booties makes for a really cute outfit.  But given how dark the shirt is and how dark the jeans are it felt like this was a little more night appropriate.  So I decided to change the top.

I already had the jeans on and they were cuffed pretty good to work with the booties so I didn’t want to change those and start all over again.  I went into my closet looking for a different top that wouldn’t be as fancy.


I landed with a classic V-neck, this is actually one that I bleached out the graphic on it.  So this is one of my go to casual shirts, made even more casual by the fact that there is a graphic on the front.  Now that I am here I felt like it was too casual.  So what a predicament.

So I just decided to tuck the shirt in.  I love tucked shirts.  They are the best.  I pair them with skinny jeans and it gives a very different feel to the outfit.  I love the waist that I get when I tuck in shirts.  I feel like I get longer legs and a skinnier waist with these.

Military Style Boots

Hello Hello!! So lately I have been looking for a boot to be an in between in my wardrobe. Currently in my wardrobe I have snow boots (real heavy duty nice Sorel boots) and I have knee high leather rider boots. In the winter I am always at this weird place of its not snowing and there is no real snow on the side walk so the Sorels do not seem appropriate, but then there are the knee high boots that when I am just running errands seem too fancy.

A few weeks ago I saw one of my friends wearing these really cool looking military boots, and I thought maybe if I get a solid pair of these they could become my “utility” boots that I can wear. I really want to wear them when I am running errands on the weekend, walking to the gym and walking to work. I found these boots


So when I first took them out of the ASOS box I was super skeptical about them. Would I wear them? Are they too butch for me? Will I like wearing them? How will they handle some snow?

I had a lot of thoughts, these are not my typical style and are a little outside my comfort zone but they were a reasonably price and I really wanted to try. So I kept them even after a length conversation with my sister who said that she didn’t like them. My main worry was were they too butch.

I wore this outfit over the weekend, yea I worry about looking butch and the first thing I wear them with is a cargo jacket but it was warm out this weekend and I wanted to wear this coat. Actually this time out running errands made me love these shoes. I was wearing them out and walking around with the melting snow all over and just was so happy I bought these. They were just so easy to put on and so comfortable to wear around.

Yea I wear them when I walk to the gym so it is a lot of workout leggings and these sweaters that I love to wear when I lounge around. I personally think that these boots seamlessly fit in my wardrobe. I also don’t think they look butch with how I wear them.

My Go To Casual Outfit

Hello Hello!! So I have realized that I rely on one outfit to do a lot of work in my wardrobe, especially for my work casual days. This is such a great outfit that works in so many different settings. I have worn variations of this outfit to work on casual days, out running errands, and to dinner with friends. (I would also consider wearing it on a chill date, not like the first date but like third or fourth, lol).

Alright so why do I pick this outfit? Well I absolutely love this cardigan, instead of a pattern on the waterfall it has this texture which just makes it look really cool. For a casual look I typically pair it with a v-neck, the left was worn to work on a casual day and the right to run some errands. Since the cardigan is so dark I don’t like to pair it with my dark wash jean and instead go for my lightest pair.

Then I obviously finished it with my favorite pair of booties, these are amazing I will take any excuse to wear these shoes.

Lively Bra Review

Hello Hello!!! So Victoria Secret has been my go to bra place since I started wearing bras. Probably because they were in all the malls and that was what all my friends were doing. As of lately I have been noticing a real decrease in the quality of their bras. I thought it might just be their sports bras, which I loved and swore by but now they feel flimsy and look like they will offer no support.

The last bra I ordered from them was the exact same as one that I had previously bought but it felt so much cheaper. Any ways because of this I have been curious about what other stores are out there that I can get bras at? Now to be completely honest I have a small chest, as my sister likes to say I could wear any bra and it doesn’t really matter. So I am a 34B, which is small but I still need a bra. (My sister on the other hand I think wears a DD, so she is always mad that I can wear a more variety of bras).

So this shop keeps showing up on my social media feeds, Lively. I was curious about them, and they are cheaper 2 bras for $55. So last week I decided to give them a try.

So here are the two that I bought, the black one is advertised as a strapless with a lot of boning and the navy one is a bralette. So here are my thoughts

Black – so it also did come with straps that you can use, I wouldn’t recommend it as the straps are at a really odd place on the front cups. Now this bra is very pretty, the lace is really nice and looks good. This bra does have a lot of boning and will stay up. The one disappointing thing is that the cups don’t stay in place and actually sag a little. So it’s not the most flattering look on a bra.

Navy – so this is a bralette and is also pretty with lace. Now the one thing I love about this is that it has a clasp in the back. Which makes it really convenient and easy to put on. Now it doesn’t have much support as it’s a bralette so I won’t comment too much on that. I like this bra, it’s an alright bralette. I don’t think I will wear it out but I like to wear it at home while chilling.

In conclusion, this is not going to be my new bra place, I just don’t think the bras live up to what I want. Lively did include a nice bra bag I can use when I travel and I love that and will use it. But I will continue to look for a new bra place.

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.


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.


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


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.


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.
