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.

I Went On A Date!

Hello Hello!!  I know I know, surprise surprise I never go on these.  I am a little surprised to go on one.  But it has been like 5 months since my last one so I guess I was due.  Haha.  Maybe in the new year I will be more open to more people and go on more of these, but probs not.

Anyways, we went to this neighborhood of town where you kind of just walk about and get drinks and look at art.  So dressing for a date where we are going to be outside walking and then inside having some drinks was a little difficult, I don’t really enjoy being cold.

So I went with dark skinny jeans because I think they look best on me, I paired those with these grey over the knee boots that I love so much.  On top since my bottoms are so tight I wanted a looser top.  I wore this lose white top, it is a short sleeve top so I felt my my arms needed more protection even if I was going to wear a coat so I added my burgundy cardigan.  Then for extra added sparkle I wore this necklace.

As I said before the date plan was to send a significant amount of time outside, which in January isn’t the best idea so I needed a coat.

I wore my classic black wool coat.  I wanted to wear a hat so badly but I always feel like I cannot wear a hat on a date because it will mess up any time I spent doing my hair. So instead I wore this pho- fur scarf.  I really liked how it looked and thought it kept me warm enough without needing a hat.

Night On The Town

Hello Hello!! So I did not go home for the holidays, I chose to spend Thanksgiving with my family and fend from myself around christmas.  Well a few of my friends were also in town and away from their families so we went out.  This was one of those times where you choose to go last minute so you are changing from sweats into something much better.  I kind of just went into my closet and this is what I ended up with.  I am so happy about it, I can’t wait to wear them again.

I love wearing my loose tank tops tucked into my skinny jeans.  It just elongates my short legs (so I will take all the help I can get there), and makes my waist a little bit more pronounced.  I do love wearing a black skinny jean out, I think they just look the best and also hide any issues with my legs.

So as I stated it is winter here and I do get chilly so I added a cardigan to just make the outfit a little bit warmer.  It didn’t matter too much because no one was out that night, my friends and I basically had the whole bar to ourselves.  I didn’t take a picture but I wore this with my faux black leather jacket.  I did this because it was snowing a little bit and the jacket blocks the wind.

I loved how this outfit looked with these booties (I am biased because they are my favorite), but I think they looked amazing.

Favorite Work Casual Outfits

Hello Hello!!!  So my work has a policy that whenever the local school kids are not in school we can wear casual clothing.  This year went even farther we got two whole weeks of casual outfits.  I love these days because on the regular I usually live in work clothes or workout clothing. Casual clothes are my favorite outfits, I just feel like I have so much more fun when I get to pick whatever I want from my closet (within reason of needing to be appropriate at work).

So I do live where it gets below freezing and actually it went subzero so I was never more excited to see that I could wear jeans.  Jeans offer so much more protection against cold weather then anything I wear to work, mostly because I wear a lot of skirts and tights.  So here is a quick round up of my casual outfits.  Lots of boots and sweaters (remember it was subzero).

My favorite cardigan paired with my favorite booties.  And the best sweater I owned with these amazing flat over the knee boots.

So yes one day I did skip the sweater and wore this really comfortable long sleeve shirt (probably the softest thing I own).  And then we are back to the sweaters and boots.  This sweater I just got on sale at Loft I am pretty excited about this, I like that the bottom is curved like a shirt bottom.  Then these burgundy booties, I do not have an opinion on them yet.  But so far I really like them

And obviously on the coldest day I wore my biggest sweater to keep me as warm as possible, with my knee high boots.

Wardrobe Basics

Hello Hello!!  So there are a few items of clothing that everyone should have in their closet, you know like a little black dress, a trench coat, a great pair of jeans and an amazing pair of heels.  (Obviously I am talking about a women’s wardrobe).  One item that I think is essential to an office wardrobe is a great button up shirt.  I buy this shirt from express and honestly it is amazing.  It can be worn business formal, business casual and just anywhere you want.

What I love about this shirt that I have not seen in a lot of other button up shirts is what I will call wearability.  So this shirt is not stiff, it allows so much movement and breathability that I cannot say how awesome that is to have at work.  This shirt is made of semi-sheer fabric which allows it to not be stiff and does not show wrinkles.  Which if you work in an office you will know how amazing that is, especially if you are like me and are hot and cold and are putting cardigans on and off all day.

So yes I do own this in 3 colors.  I originally bought it in blue and didn’t think too much about it.  But after wearing it a few times I realized how awesome it is.  Then I got annoyed that I bought it in blue, a less versatile color.  I love blue I do but I cannot wear it with everything.  So I have been watching this shirt for a few months waiting for it to go on sale so I can pick it up in black, then I thought having it in white would be great too.

So over Thanksgiving Express had a sale for 50% off everything so it was like a 2 for 1 deal and I bought in the white and black.  There is currently a sale at Express and it looks like 50% off again.

I wear this shirt all the time, I wear them in the same week and sometimes think I should stop but then I think no one will notice.

Casual Weekend Outfit

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).

Got Me Some New Booties

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.

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

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.
