The struggle of picking an outfit when it’s too hot

Hello hello!!  Gah, picking out an outfit when it’s way too hot out is super difficult, made even worse when you are trying to pick out an outfit for a date.  I want to look good and be cool but also not sweat through all my clothes.

At first I was all about wearing shorts because man it’s was like 90° out and I wanted to be cool.

So I love these blue shorts I think they just scream summer, and I’ve worn them out paired with this shirt before when I go out and love it.  But this violates one of my hard and fast rules of not wearing shorts on a date. (Just want to hide the back of my thighs forever).  So I was having a large discussion in my head to wear this or put on pants.  And…. Pants won because this is what I changed into.

Yes, I gave into the desire to hide my legs.  I decided that it was afternoon so it would start getting colder so I could stick it out until it gets cooler and then I’ll be fine.  I love this outfit too, the black shirt half tucked into a light pair of jeans is a favorite outfit of mine.

Let me know your thoughts, should I have changed or not.

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.

Over the knee boots

Hello hello!  I wanted to revisit this topic, please see the blog/ rant I did a few months ago when I was looking for over the knee boots.  The gist of that is that I was annoyed that finding a pair of boots to fit my calves was so hard, I work out and think I have average calves nothing huge but apparently too big for the fashion industry.

I have found a pair I think are worthy to talk about on the blog, and I love them so much.  Now to be very honest, I really wanted a good pair and was willing to pay to get a great pair.  The pair I bought was Vince Camuto Melaya Over the knee boots, they were a Nordstrom exclusive and appear to have sold out, but I would recommend the designer because these boots are amazing.  I was waiting to share because I well they were back ordered when I bought them and then I was away when they got to my apartment and then I wanted to wait to wear them to get a feel for them.  They are undoubtedly amazing and look great with any outfit, I wish I could wear them more.

So I have been wearing them on dates, as that is where these two outfits came from.  And seriously I honestly just love to wear them, I wore them at my apartment for hours one Sunday trying on my dresses to see which looked best.  And if they ever do come back into stock I will have a serious thought about buying them again because they are that great of a boot.

Yes this is from the Sunday that I spent trying on clothing but needless to say the dress I am really excited to wear these boots out with are shift dresses.  I feel like it just adds another element and makes my legs look super good and they make a statement.

Anyway let me know your thoughts

Woah another date?

I know I know, nothing for like 6 months and now I am a frequenter of going out to eat in a dateish format.  Haha but what can I say, once I feel I am too busy to date is when people start asking me out.  Regardless I still love going into my closet and picking out clothes to wear out.

In case anyone forgot it has gotten super cold here so wearing skirts and dresses has become a real tough decision.  So this time around I went for a more classic look of jeans, a black shirt and I wore a casual blazer as a cardigan. (I have been looking for blazers that can be used both for work and going out.)

This is an outfit most women can pull off, get a great pair of skinny jeans, and a black shirt and you have this outfit.  Pair them with some boots to complete the outfit.  The outfit gives off a out together yet casual vibe that works well for week night dates like the one I went on the other night.  To dress the outfit up I added this really great statement necklace that just sparkles, its one of my favorites.

Wait, you had a date?

Yes, yes I did!  And now lets all take a minute to look at the date category and reminisce about the last time I had a date.  Haha, it was awhile ago, please feel free to find it humorous, I certainly do.  I do not go on dates often but I love dressing for a date, you can dress up a little bit without having to go super fancy of a more formal event.

I was way more excited about my outfit then I was about the actual date so who knows about any future dates at this point.  But seriously the outfit, I was planning this in my head earlier in the day before this skirt even got delivered.  I wanted to wear this skirt and these boots so badly, but they do come off as dressy so I was really looking for a shirt to down play that.  I went with this cute plaid shirt that I rolled up the sleeves on and gave it a more casual vibe.

This skirt, is amazing and I loved wearing it on the date.  I think it worked really well and gave off the casual but stylish vibe I always go for.  I want to look put together and fashionable but still be chill at the same time, especially on first dates.  This outfit accomplished that, the skirt is tweed and gives off a very put together vibe.  Paired with some over the knee boots and the plaid shirt gave the outfit the fashionable and casual look that I was going for.  I cannot wait to wear this outfit again, as well as the skirt and boots separately.  They are both very new and I am excited about them.

As a side note about this skirt it is great for every day as well as a date, it has an elastic waist so it will fit at your waist perfectly.  The fit of the skirt is A-line so it will compliment most women’s figures, while also not being too tight.  And best of all IT HAS POCKETS!! Pockets that you can actually fits stuff in which was a very nice surprise when I opened my package

I paired the skirt with my brand new over the knee boots, which really elongated my legs, I actually felt like my legs were longer in this outfit.  This was really nice because as I have stated it is cold here so having boots that came up over my knees and almost met the bottom of my skirt was amazing when I was outside.

So the skirt is only available in a few sizes, yea I know super sad… But I did see these other skirts that are similar and come in a bunch of colors, including black.  Also I would size down they seem to run large and they have an elastic waist so for more usage I recommend a smaller size.

Wait…. You had a date?

Why yes yes I did have a date. Haha.  I have been wanting to write about a date outfit for a while but I figured I needed to actually go on a date for it to actually count as an accurate article.

Any ways not here to talk about my life but about my clothing.

I went into the day knowing that I wanted to wear this shirt. This lace up white tank (yea I know I wore it again) but as of lately I am loving white.  This tank is a very pristine white and it makes my arms look tanner then they actually are.  And the laces on the front are a very subtle sexy that I love about this top.  Just a little flash of the chest.  (And yes I do have smaller boobs so I can kind of get away with it).

I decided to pair the shirt with this really cute pleather skirt and sandals.  We did a really chill drinks at a bar so I did not want to overdress so I went with the flat sandals.  I love to wear this skirt when I go on dates because it flatters my body well and since it is black it can be paired with so many tops that I already own.  This is a really easy outfit for me, that looks super put together and in fashion but is also very comfortable.  As a side note- this skirt has pockets which makes it even better!

To complete the whole ensemble I actually changed purses (which I typically do not do) and used this large mint colored tote bag as my purse.  I absolutely love the mint color of this bag really makes me think of spring and summer.  It goes really well with a lot of lighter colored clothes and my current white obsession haha.

Where do I get this stuff?

Well the white shirt is linked in my last article.

skirt- JC Penney’s but I bought it last year

tote bag. – Amazon –  It is currently unavailable but I would check back its pretty reasonable and it  is reversible.
