Midweek Casual Day

What What!!  I love when these days randomly come around at work.  For those of you that work in an office and have to dress business casual or business formal you know that any day that you do not have to wear the required clothing is an amazing day.  I personally do not like to wear work pants but the minute I am allowed to wear jeans I am about that life.  Haha.

Boots and Sweater Season!!  I love wearing this black sweater, it is just so chill and has a great lace up detail on the back.  It is one of my favorite pieces that I bought last year.  The casual vibe of a large sweater is the best.  I paired it with these heeled booties.  I cuffed the jeans to my the boots more of a statement.  I loved how comfy this outfit was.

It is actually not too cold here so I only needed my light trench coat today when I was walking to and from work.  This outfit is really a fall favorite of mine and I tend to wear variations of this look all season.

Halloween Outfit

Hello Hello!! So obviously Halloween was this week.  I love Halloween, not because I am good at thinking of great costumes but because I love watching what everyone else comes up with.  People watching on this day is the best, I love to talk with people about who they are dressed up as.

So with that being said I am not very good at coming up with costume ideas on my own and I don’t always want to spend money on a costume that someone else came up with.  This year I wanted to just go into my closet and find something that will work as a costume.  When I was talking with some friends about going out and I thought hey I could go as Sandy from Grease.  That would be super easy.

Sandy

I mean it was really easy, I just went into my closet and found my black skinny jeans (would have been better if I had moto pants but I do not), I put on a black tank top tucked in, added a belt and finished it off with a leather jacket.  You cannot see in the photo but Sandy is wearing red mules, so I added my bright red pumps.  All and all I am really happy with how it turned out and it only cost me $0.  This is probably a costume I would repeat since I already own everything and it was so easy.

Easy Breazy Going Out Outfit

Hello Hello!!  Do you ever have one of those nights that your friend wants to go out but all you want to do is lay around and be lazy?  Yea, happens to me too (like all the time, haha), just kidding but I do have the nights where all I want to do is stay in.

Well this weekend I had a friend come into town and we hung out during the day and she visited some other friends so I was just chilling at home getting comfortable.  When I get a phone call from her saying we are going out and we are in dresses and heels (damn).  I don’t see her that often so I wanted to hang out but man getting fancy did not sound fun.  So here is how I tricked people into thinking I actually tried.

So to trick people into thinking I took a lot of time getting ready, all I really did was get a little black dress (classic when trying to do this), and then I added a leather jacket and heels (in this case heeled boots).

Alright so when I went into my closet I was literally looking for the easiest dress that I own.  I didn’t want it to be tight, I didn’t want it to be short, I wanted the fabric to be soft and I wanted to be able to wear it with a jacket.  I tried on a few dresses before I landed on this black dress.  I have probably owned this little black dress since high school, I have never been able to get rid of it because it is such a classic dress.  It is just a really simple dress, cinches right under the boobs and just flows.  It’s not real short, the one thing about it is that it is low cut.

The suede leather jacket was great because it was cold but also it made me feel more comfortable because it covered up my chest.  I love this leather jacket I think it is really comfortable and cool.  And then I added some heeled boots.  I did this mostly because these boots allowed me to wear socks without anyone noticing I was wearing socks.

(If you would like in sight into exactly how lazy I was when getting ready, look at the pictures.  I am not wearing any accessories.  I am not even wearing earrings.  I actually had taken out my contacts before my friend called and I refused to put them back in so I was actually wearing my glasses out).

Finally Found Bar Stools

Hello Hello!!  I don’t know about you guys but I love to decorate.  Buying or making my own wall decor and maybe one day I will show you guys my apartment and how I decorated it.  (I am actually very proud of it, but it is currently not done yet).  I have been looking for bar stools since I moved into my new apartment.  I have a breakfast bar that is really great, and every time I looked at it I was sad I could not use it because I have not found bar stools yet.  I am picky I know this, so I finally found some that I absolutely love.

I found some that I really like at this specialty place in town, the down side is that they were priced very expensive for one and I needed at least 3.  So I began looking other places, like Facebook market place and if I needed to paint them I would.  Then I was on Amazon one day and I found these.

So I have silver/ grey counter tops so I was trying to stay away from anything in that color scheme.  When I was thinking about buying used and painting I had actually decided to paint them bronze.  I am loving the metallic colors, I think they work as a great neutral and they also do not clash with each other.

When I saw these on Amazon I was ready to buy immediately.  They are in bronze already so check and they are exactly like the ones I found at the store in town check.  They have a really great dark wood seat.  I love this aspect, I think it adds so much extra character rather than having a metal top.

They have made my apartment so much more usable, I sit on them at least 2-3 times a day.  I am actually sitting on them right now writing this post.

Ahhh!! The Sidewalk Skirt is one SALE

Hello Hello!! Now I know I talked about this skirt last year because I love it so much that I bought 2 last year.  Why is this skirt so amazing?  First, it is a good length that it can be worn to work but also can be worn casually.  You just need to wear this with tights if you wear it to work.  Second, it is just super comfortable so if you work an office job like me, the waist band does not bother you all day.  It is just really comfortable to sit in.  Last and probably most important IT HAS MOTHER FUCKING POCKETS!!!  Yes that’s right pockets! In a businessy skirt!!  (To everyone asking if that is important yes it is.  I go to meetings on numerous floors a day and when carrying my badge without pockets I am always worried I will lose it)

But I was talking to a friend about this skirt over the weekend and then it caused me to go look it up and see if it was available on J. Crew’s site.  And wouldn’t you know, not only is it available but it is on sale!!!  Here it is ladies I would recommend this skirt to any one.

Now here are just a bunch of pictures of me wearing these skirts.

Bah, good luck shopping out there!!!

New Vest

Hello Hello!!  So last fall there was this really cute vest that was everywhere.  It was tweed and had pockets and looked really great all around.  I found it on a boutique site but it was kind of expensive and I had already bought a vest so I decided not to buy it.  This year I saw the vest again, but it was on Amazon and it was a fraction of the price, this vest.

I really like this vest because it has pockets which are really key when you are trying to walk the dog and not take a purse.  That is the main reason that I bought this vest to be able to wear on walks.  Working it into the rest of my wardrobe is just icing on the cake.

I usually do not like the puffer vest look because I just don’t think that it does anything beneficial for the female figure.  Which for the most part I still think is true.  This vest is an exception, it is not very puffy but it is still warm as well as the tweed pattern.  These combine to make a really great buy.  I highly recommend this vest.

What should I wear to my friend’s wedding?

Hello Hello!!  So one of my friends is getting married and I am having this huge debate in my head about what I should wear.  When I first got the invite in my head I have already decided what to wear.

So I love this dress, I think it is a very flattering look and fits me very well.  I love that it is lose on top and the skirt is tight.  This for me creates the illusion that I have a smaller waist then what I actually do.  The slit in front makes if fun and flirty and perfect for a wedding.  I personally love this dress.

But I was texting my sister asking her opinion and it made me question my decision.  She said that it looked beige and didn’t really look good.  So then I went back to the drawing board and came up with a few other options.

So I just got this skirt and its a little fancy so I have been dying to find a place to wear it to.  Both of these options have the same skirt but different shirts.  One is a tight grey shirt and the other is a lose shear navy shirt.

This gold pleated midi skirt is amazing and looks super fancy, I love that.  I actually had to hem it so it is a midi on me, I am short.  But now that I hemmed it and it actually hits mid calf, I am ready to wear this out.  So I like the dark shirt look with this skirt, I think it really allows the skirt to shin and be the center of attention.  I think this would also be very wedding appropriate, as it is fancy enough but not over the top.  I also think it will be great for dancing, will allow me to move around a little more freely then the other one.

If you have an opinion please let me know, I am open to other people’s opinions.

Also if I wear the skirt I will cover up the elastic band with a belt.
