Rooftop Bars

Hello Hello!!  So over the weekend it was really nice so when my friend hit me up asking if I wanted to check out some rooftop bars around the city I was all about it.  Who wouldn’t want enjoy a nice day on a sunny rooftop bar.

It was really hot so had to dress strategically to not over heat.

So I wore these paper bag shorts, they are linen and have a very high waist that is accentuated by the belt.  These shorts are rapidly becoming my go to piece this summer, because they are light and the color is amazing.  I have recently been paring it with my other go to summer item this tank.  This tank top is great it is light and flowy and just all around comfortable for summer.

I actually own this tank top in white and black.  If these shorts came in another color I would also own them in that color.  (Sorry I didn’t link the shorts, they are from Urban Outfitters and they are no longer available.)

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.

New Swimsuit

Hello Hello!!!  So lets be honest buying a swimsuit is hard and it does suck.  Since I have an aversion to shopping in an actual store it is a little extra hard.  (Yes I do know that I could go to a store and look for one if I was desperate).  So I used to buy my suits from Victoria Secret but they stopped selling a majority of their suits a few years ago.  Which was sad and I was adverse to finding another place.

Also lately I have been wanting to get a one piece, they are really making a come back and I kind of wanted to try one.  I think the cutouts they are making on them are amazing.  So obviously in my shopping endeavor I went to Amazon.  (there are so many swimsuits there it is kind of amazing).  I found this suit.

I bought this because I loved where the cutout was on the stomach, it is in a really nice spot.  The cutout is higher on the stomach so it is at the smallest point on me and does not show my belly button which I thought would be weird.  The horizontal stripes are not for everyone and from the right angle they do make me look bigger but I am just dealing with it because I love it.

The pink background with the palm leaves on it is really awesome, it was what attracted me to the swimsuit in the first place.

So the suit is very comfortable, it covered me in all the right places.  I think it is a great alternative to wearing the per usual bikini.  I got a lot of compliments on this while I was out and people really loved it.  Pictures show that you can wear it without the halter strap but I personally think it is necessary to hold the top up.

My only issue with the suit is that in the back there are two ties.  The one on top with the palm prints seems necessary to hold the top up but there is a second tie for with the stripes on it that does not have any necessary function and wouldn’t need to be there.  I am actually thinking about removing it.

Day Trip

Hello Hello!! So as I previously said I am moving and actually moving pretty far so I had to take a day trip to look at apartments. So this is what I wore when I was wondering around a new city looking at new apartments and exploring in general. I wanted something comfortable, breathable, and what I can wear all day while being moving. Also in case of the worst happening and I missed my flight home I brought a large tote that I carried an extra set of clothes.

First and fore most I wore this cargo jacket with all its pockets, which are essential when travelling. I love wearing this jacket when I am in the airport, it allows easy access to the pockets that are helpful when going through security and getting on the plane. Also for convenience this tote bag is a travelling essential to me. I literally bring this every time that I travel, it has great internal pockets and fits under the seat in front of me so its convenient for travelling.

So I went for casual and and loose. I know I say loose and yes I am wearing skinny jeans but skinny jeans are part of my casual wardrobe. So I went with my favorite skinny jeans and cuffed the bottom. I wore this loose polka doted top that was airy and comfortable to wear all the time. Finally I wore these Toms sneakers because I love them and thought they would be super comfortable. Typically they are very comfortable, I will concede they are not made for walking around for 12 hours in, but I dealt with that.

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.

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.

Faux Fur Scarf

Hello Hello!! So I talked a little about this a few weeks ago when I reviewed the Rachel Zoe box of style. Well I have started to wear this, mostly because it is not unbearably cold when I need to wear a fleece scarf. I have worn this faux fur scarf and I love it. I think it adds so good depth to any outfit. Also it just makes any outfit look fancier.

I was going to a pretty casual lunch with a friend and I just added the scarf to the outfit. It looks amazing with the suede leather jacket. I know the jacket by itself is super fancy but add the scarf and it is amazing.

The jacket goes with the boots so well but when adding the scarf it kind of distracts that the shoes and jacket are matchy matchy.

It is a little bit harder to see here because of the black shirt but I loved wearing it. I have so much fun when I can add this to any outfit. It literally sits out next to my purse waiting for any day that I can just put it on.
