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.

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.

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.

Packing for Vacation

Hello Hello!! Finally going on my first vacation of the year and I am pretty pumped about it.  I have spent way too much time in the office and need to get out.  I have been looking forward to this since I bought the tickets.

A few friends and I are getting together later this week and going to the beach.  I am so excited for the beach, I have lofty goals of sitting on the beach and doing nothing for the time I am there.  So I have been looking through my closet thinking about what I need to pack.

Packing up my cute summer skirts, fun summery shorts and obviously my casual romper.  Also my like 5 swimsuits because you need variety when you are going to go relax on the beach.

I am going to be packing over the next few days and then hopefully will updated you with some vacation beach pictures.

Is it summer yet?

Hello hello!! Finally we have strung together a few days of consistently 70 degree weather and I am ready for summer.  So much so that I am breaking out my summer going out clothes.  I am excited about the tank tops, lace shirts and light shirts, and wearing them out without a jacket.

Yes I was a little lazy this weekend and went with flats most days but in my defense this is the first time I can wear sandals so I am also really pumped for that as well.  I didn’t fully commit to the all summer feel since I didn’t bring out my shorts/ summer dresses/ rompers, but it just felt way to early for that.  So this weekend I stuck with jeans and my fun tops.  The grey one I have had forever, it is hard to describe but it has these small holes all over so it is like lace.  Of course the all over lace shirt I bought in the fall I am dying to wear it in the summer.  Then my classic chill tank top that I wear all the time in the summer.

I can feel it, lace shirts are going to be my thing this summer.  I have this one and I bought like 3 more, I don’t envision myself stopping.

Ah, St Patty’s Day

Hello Hello!!  So when I was cleaning out my closet I realized that I do not own anything green, which is an interesting situation to be in with St. Patty’s Day around the corner.  Apparently if you do not wear green its a travesty.  So I went on Amazon because maybe I can find a shirt in green that I didn’t hate.  (Although not in Kelly green because that color looks bad on me).

So I went looking for olive green, this is a color I actually really like right now and I have been looking for a shirt just haven’t been able to find one.  I didn’t know how this one was going to work out when I ordered it but I am actually really happy about it.  The material is really soft and it is super lose and comfy.

I did not take the day off but had plans to meet some friends right after work so I had to make this work appropriate but also able to transform for going out.  The pics are from before work, I added a white blazer to make it work better in the office setting.  I tucked in the shirt in the front to give me back a waist.

In order to transform this for going out I really didn’t change much.  I removed the black undershirt, since it has a high neck I wanted to add a little bit of more sex appeal to the outfit.  I wore one of my bras that goes a little bit lower then a normal bra, this gave a pic-a-boo affect with my side/ rib area.  I loved this look and will wear it out again.

This shirt was so amazing that I may actually buy it in more colors.  It is very versatile, I’m planning to wear mine when I chill around my apartment, when I casually go our tucked into shorts or jeans and obviously it worked really well for going out.

Taking Friday Casual to Dinner

Hello Hello!!  What’s up?  (Sorry for the delay I’ve been fighting a cold all week).  Fridays at work are casual days but still any outfit has to meet work’s standards for casual.  Don’t get me wrong my work is super lax on enforcing what can and cannot be worn, but I like to not push the envelope.

This Friday it was beautiful here, like 65 in February, I could not resist walking to work but I also had to go almost directly to dinner and drinks with my friend upon getting home.  I wanted to do a quick change of my outfit before heading out, so here are my tips on how to make a quick change by only altering a few things.

I actually went pretty casual for work on Friday, and since it was so warm I went for an outfit that felt a little springy.

I bought this white shirt awhile ago and I love wearing it, its super comfy and it is this crisp white color.  I love wearing it on Fridays because it is lose chill and looks good with my skinny jeans.  When I walked to work it was a little chilly out so I wore my trench coat, always makes any outfit more professional.

Now how to take this professional casual look to dinner and drinks.

I only changed 2 things, with an optional third change if you wanted to be fancier   First and most obvious I changed my jacket traded my trench coat for a leather jacket.  The leather jacket adds some edge which makes it perfect for going out.  The second change is my accessories, I switched necklaces from a more conservative statement necklace to a loud statement necklace.  The neckline of this shirt begs to be worn with a statement necklace and this flashy glam one is perfect for going out.  These changes combined to take the casual work look to a casual going out look.  (The change took a total of maybe 5 minutes).

Now for those of you that want to have a fancier going out look the third item you will want to change is the shoes.  I stuck with my toms but I was doing a pretty casual dinner, you will want to change to heels.  This outfit would look great with a pair of heels, I am personally inclined to pair with my red pumps.  But also will great with a pair of black heeled strapy sandals.
