Hello Hello!!! Weekends are for casual days and trying not to think about work. Or at least that is how I strive to live on a weekend. I don’t like to make a lot of big decisions on the weekend. So last week I was home visiting my family and and I kind of just threw on some clothes, from what I brought home. I paired it with the only booties I brought home and I just love this outfit.
(lol I filtered one and not the other, sorry. I thought it made me look like a ghost so I didn’t do it on the second one and didn’t go back and change the first one)
Alright, so these are probably my most comfortable pair of jeans. They are skinney jeans but they are not very tight. I paired them with this gray V-neck shirt that I bleach painted the outline of my home state one it, the shirt just came from Target. It was nothing really special but I love the gold detail right around the neck. Now for anyone who travels you know that you only bring one of the chunky clothes home, so this was the only cardigan that I brought home. And it looks amazing with this outfit.
This cardigan has the waterfall front but on the front it has this really cool woven patter on the front. It really adds a very interesting detail to the front of the cardigan. It is really amazing because it is not too bulky but still warm enough. So it is a little bit more expensive then what I typically pay for, but I love it and it is very worth it. I have had this cardigan for a few weeks and have worn it so often.
I finished the outfit off with the only pair of booties that I brought home. Now I am really good in heels so I can wear these all day without having an issue. But this outfit would look the same with booties that did not have a heel. (I have been looking for a pair of booties like this but have been unable to find some that I like).

Hello Hello!! So if you pay attention to my instagram or the photos I post on here you will probably notice that these are not exactly new but I have not posted about them so I thought I would now that I have worn them a few times! So I was looking for a pair of flat booties since all the ones I currently own all have heels. Now as you can see I failed at doing that since these do have heels. Damnit!! haha. But sometimes you cannot pass up a great pair of shoes.
These boots are amazing. I was actually a little concerned with how high the boot shaft went up, I was expecting them to have a shorter shaft. I was a little worried about how to style them since all of my other booties are shorter. But I have been styling them the same as my other booties and have been wanting to wear them with some leggings to show off my legs.
So there is no zipper on these which is kind of annoying but there is enough stretch in them to get them on and off with ease. I have worn these all day at work and I have worn them all night when going out. I am going to say that I am very good in heels but these were very comfortable and I had no issues wearing them.
I would recommend these boots to you, they are very comfortable and look really good when I wear them out.

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.

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.
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.

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).

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.
Hello Hello!! Now I know some of you guys are like how did you not know about Zara. Well to answer that question, I have lived in places that did not have a Zara. And yes that is a very sad day that I never was able to shop there prior to my trip to the Twin Cities.
So any ways recently I went to the Twin Cities and there is a very large Zara in the Mall of America. This store is amazing there is something in this store for everyone. I do not shop at malls very often so I wasn’t buying anything but the one place I wanted to stop before we left was Zara. I just want to say the minute I walked in I saw so many things I wanted to try on. I was talking through the store just picking up things left and right to try on.
I bought a few things – I talked about the first one already, this green dress.
Second – I bought this coat
This coat is just a really soft casual coat. It is just a big slouch coat that goes down to mid-thigh. The length I thought would be weird but actually when worn with tight clothes it looks really good. Like here were I paired it with skinny jeans and a tight top. I have also worn this to work when I wear a work dress.
Lastly I bought this amazing all over lace bell sleeved top.
I absolutely love all over lace tops, I think they are so feminine and romantic and lately these types of shirts have been my speed. I have been looking to try bell sleeves for a while and this shirt kind of was just amazing when I tried it on. I didn’t think I would like the color but I actually do. The V-neck on this shirt is amazing, it is cut perfectly. The V-neck is cut narrow and deep which is great because it shows off your cleavage without being too much.
