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.

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

Maker:L,Date:2017-8-31,Ver:5,Lens:Kan03,Act:Kan02,E-ve

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.
