First Few Nights Out in a New City

Hello Hello!!! Yet again I have been MIA for an extended period of time.  It was not my intention but I was moving and the old apartment was a wreck and then I moved and the new apartment was a wreck.  Then I just felt like exploring the new city and I just kind of got a little lost.  Also the lighting in my new place makes taking mirror selfies dim (I am working on it).

Any ways the first few nights I went out, it was kind of a range of temperatures.  The first weekend was really warm and the second weekend was actually cold.  This is what you get when you live in the midwest.  Spoiler alert I moved to Chicago, which is much closer to my family.

So I wore one of my favorite new dresses, this one is really causal but can be dressed up with heels and some nice earrings.  I love going out in this one especially if I go dancing since it has slits up both sides.  Makes it fun to move around in when dancing.  I typically hold the bottom and dance around.  Had a very fun time.

Next Weekend

Ahh the cold weekend which I actually kind of loved.  It was mid 70s during the day and got down to mid 60s at night.  Which made wearing jeans possible.  I love pairing my black skinny jeans with some of my lace tops.  This one is especially one of my favorites due to the opening in the back.  I went for flats because I am lazy.

Weekend of Fun (CWS)

Hello Hello!!! So yes this is the one weekend it is actually fun to live in Omaha (in my opinion).  The College World Series is in town which means that there is fun to be had all around.  So since this is the last one I will experience while living here I plan to enjoy it.  And the weather decided that 100 degrees was going to be the average.  So what does one where when it is hot and humid but you still want to be outside.

I typically live by wearing something that is easy breezy and will not annoy you.  Also for those of you who like to drink when you are out, I always try to live by what will be easy when I have a beer bladder.  Now this time around I broke one of my rules, No Rompers.

So why do I have this rule to begin with?  Well when you need to go to the bathroom in a romper you need to take it all off.  So typically when I know I will be drinking a lot I avoid the romper.  But I did wear one out this time.

Ahh this is the kind of romper I love, it has no structure, its very lose, fabric is comfortable, fabric is stretchy, and there is an elastic band at the waist.  This is a very comfortable romper.  I like that I do not need to wear a special bra but can just throw one on.  It just was a very comfortable one piece outfit that I did not have to worry about.

ALSO IT HAS POCKETS.  Although if you put stuff in the pockets it does look odd but thats not the point there are useful pockets.  So my biggest concern with the romper was the bathroom but once wearing it out it was not that big of a deal.  Since the fabric stretched it was easy to get on and off.  As long as you got used to being in the bathroom in just your bra.

I finished the outfit with a pair of flat gold sandals, I was on my feet all night outside and walking through beet tents.  It is just easier to wear flats then to try to wear any sort of heels.  I wore these beautiful white fringe earrings, I wanted to dress up by basic black outfit and these earrings were light enough that they did not bother my ears.  They also did not feel to dressy for the occasion.

For the next night I went with an outfit along similar lines.

I wore a pair of graphic shorts, with a basic white tank that has a pretty low V.  Given how hot it was outside I just went with a basic bralette.  This is probably my most comfortable bralette and I love wearing it when it is too hot for a normal bra.  And it is currently on sale, it does not appear they have the black that I am wearing but I loved this so much I actually bought it in the white that I linked.

All in all I went for a really casual vibe for both nights, you just want to be comfy when you are having a good time bumming outside.

U2 Concert

Hello Hello!!  Last weekend my neighbors gave me free U2 tickets (I know FREE).  I was pretty excited about this and its the first concert I have gone to in awhile. The entire week leading up to this I was thinking about what to wear, initially I wanted to wear a new pair of shorts I bought but then the weather took a turn for the worse and shorts seemed like a less than ideal option.

So I went with the very classic dark blue skinny jean, I paired it with this great tank top.  I tucked the top into the skinny jeans.  I am very much feeling the monochromatic look, or at least close to it.  I paired it with these great lace up sandals.  Finally accessorizing with these great earrings made by this local artist.

I tucked the bottom of my skinny jeans into the top of the lace up sandals.  I did this because I didn’t want to roll my jeans up to show the top of the sandals.  Since I figured I wasn’t really show casing the shoes and tucking the pants in would stream line the look anyways.  I loved it, I don’t know why I haven’t done it before but it worked out pretty great.

Casual Night Out

Hello Hello!!  Sorry I know I have been MIA and I apologize, but on the upside I have figured my life out (at least I think so) and I will be moving soon!!  Ahh so exciting, I cannot wait.  And yes this is the reason I have been so lax on posting.

Anyways I bought a dress awhile back that I have been dying to wear.  I was curious on how it would look since it is midi length and I am a little on the short side.  I wondered if I would just look short in it.

I agree that it does cut my legs but since I belted the dress high I do not think it makes me look as short as I thought.  There is also slits on the side of the dress that goes to mid thigh that I think adds something to the look.

I have been dying to wear this dress because of how comfortable it is, initially I thought I could wear this as a summer dress on Friday.  As it turns out the neckline is much lower then I thought it was so I will not be wearing this to the office.  I am still happy I bought it, it is a super cute casual dress.  So my friend was visiting and we were getting some drinks, and it is really hot out so I thought why not this dress?  It worked really well for the occasion.

Lately I have been loving very low necklines, I am not really sure why.  But I have bought a few tank tops and dresses that have low necklines.  I am really feeling this trend.

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.

What to wear to NYE?

Hello Hello!!  Is it really this time of year again?  I hate making these big decisions (haha eye roll).  But I do feel like I have no idea what to wear, and the only thing that I want to wear is the dress I wore last year.  Which I have already eliminated on the off chance that someone besides me remembers that I wore it.  haha.  Now the search through my closet for an outfit will commence.

A Classic Sequin Dress

 

Ah yes NYE is all about the sequin dresses.  This is the only sequin dress I currently still own, I find that as I get older I buy less and less sequin dresses, who would have thought.  Haha.  I like this dress because a shift dress is exactly my style, I love wearing these dresses, especially on a night when I am dancing. (I have actually not worn this dress before and I have been looking for reason to wear it).  This would be the perfect opportunity to wear it.  I am going to say I am a little hesitant to wear it because I have some other better options.

A Classic Black Dresss

So a black dress with a twist, this dress actually has velvet all over it.  When I bought it I absolutely loved it and thought I would for sure wear it for new years.  But after trying it on a few time I am not so sure.  I really like the dress but I feel like it is not as flattering to my figure as I initially thought.  So I am still up in the air on this dress.  I think it may look amazing with a leather jacket on a date.  (If I ever go on another date that is…).

An Amazing Skirt Styled Numerous Ways

I will order them from my favorite to my least favorite (now I love all of them because this skirt is probably my favorite piece in my wardrobe right now and any excuse to wear it is fine by me).

Ahh, I love it, I love this skirt, I love this shirt.  I have only worn both of them once but really try to wear them more.  I the contrast between the black top and the gold bottom.  The top accents the bottom really nicely with the deep V that is outlined with gold beading.  I think this outfit just speaks New Years Eve.  Its gold and sparkly without having sequins all over it.  I feel like this is a grown up way to be sparkly.  I would wear a pair of large gold earrings and purse TBD.  My one hesitation, is my hesitation all the time with the skirt, it makes me look short.

I love it again!!  I feel like this outfit has a little more of an old Hollywood.  I think the burgundy lace really offer this outfit a classy elegance.  I love wearing this top and just a bra underneath it is a very understated sexy, because you cannot really tell without looking closely.  I think the top really compliments the skirt because the lace compliments the skirt.  I would style this with some big gold earrings again, purse TBD.

Last but not least this outfit.  Now this was the first shirt I thought of to try on with this skirt, and I loved it.  It has a very classy elegance to it.  Now why is it my least favorite?  Well, after going through the above 2 outfits doesn’t this one just feel a little bit boring?  I get the feeling that it is boring.  Not that I wouldn’t wear this outfit to some other function but I think the other two just scream NYE a little bit more then this one.

Ahh, I love this skirt.  I actually just bought a burgundy velvet top, that should be here before NYE that I am going to try with this skirt as well.

So we will see where we end up.
