Travel Outfits

Hello Hello!! Sorry again for the delay, phone was broke for awhile so I couldn’t take any pics or write anything.  I did want to blog but I would have done it on my work computer and that seemed like a bad idea.  Any ways I want to talk about travel outfits.

Yes this outfit was really comfortable, I cannot tell you how easy it was to travel in this outfit.  I want to start out with how great this cargo jacket is to travel in.  The amount of pockets this has and how big they were are perfect.  I loved that they were the perfect size for my phone and I never worried where it was.  This coat is rapidly becoming my favorite because it is so easy.

The workout pants are amazing to travel in, I don’t typically like to travel in them because they do not have pockets but I just got these.  They were stylish and comfortable, I got compliments on them all day, a lot of women were interested in where I got them.  The mesh details on the pants just made this pants so fun.

Then I finished off the outfit with a very lose top and a lose cardigan, I actually only wore the cardigan because I saw it on my way out and I was like I think that needs to come with me.  So I just slipped it on and walked out the door.

Summer Sandals

Hello Hello! Sorry for the delay in getting a post up, I am getting ready to go on vacation and then move almost immediately when I get back so I’ve been stressing and procrastinating.

So I tend to make friends with people when I go out to the bar, usually with other women because we will talk about each others outfit and where we shop.  For the past few weeks I have been looking for a pair of heeled sandals that I can wear out in the summer.  I started off looking for wedges but those have never really been my favorite type of shoe.  But I did want them to be comfortable that I could wear them all night.  Here we come to the me making friends part, there was this girl at the bar wearing the most amazing shoes.  I randomly started talking to her and she told me she bought them at a boutique in town, ahh score.

So obviously I went over to the boutique the next day to see what they had for shoes.

I am in love with this nudish pink color that they are, I could not be happier.  The sandals I was looking at online were all designer shoes and were much more expensive.  These actually look like some designer sandals I thought about buying which makes me even happier.  The heel is only about 2 inches so these are shoes that can be worn all night if you want.

I have just been trying them on with every outfit I wear, I cannot wait to actually wear them out.

Finding these was great, I am so happy to know about these new Boutique.  It is called Mesh and you can order online.  Although I may go to the store more because they have adorable clothes.

Birthday Outfits

Hello Hello!! It was my birthday this past weekend, and I love dressing up and going out on my birthday.  It was cold and kind of shitty out this weekend so I didn’t quite get to wear the outfit I had pictured in my head but mother nature does what she wants.

There were a few different phases to my birthday so I may have changed outfits 2 times, haha yea try not to judge.  First, my friend and I have the same birthday so we met up for lunch and some drinks then I had some friends over to my place to chill, day drink, and play games then go out.

The one on the left was the outfit I wore to lunch with my friend.  It kind of took me awhile to land on this outfit I was pretty indecisive about what to wear.  I kind of re-discovered this shirt when I was cleaning out my closet, and I have been wanting to wear it since.  This tank top has a white cheetah print on the front and the back is all open with only black mesh on the back.  I decided to cover it up with the blazer since you know it was only lunch.  (I would love to share where I got this shirt but I bought it in college so I could not find it).

Outfit on the right, I was dying to wear.  I just bought this shirt and when I tried it on I knew immediately I wanted to wear it on my birthday.  It is right up my style ally right now, it is a long crop top so when paired with jeans it looks really good.  The deep embellished V is amazing, I absolutely loved it.  It was revealing that it showed off my bra a little but I decided I was okay with that.  I had originally thought about wearing it with black jeans but it was hard to tell where the shirt stopped and the jeans began so it looked better with these blue jeans.

I had a great time celebrating, but lets not talk about how old I am. Haha

Mixing Patterns

Hello Hello!!  Now I wanted to share and outfit that I have been envisioning in my head for awhile (or like since I bought the shirt).  As I previously stated the last time I did a blog post about mixing pattern, I don’t typically do it because its hard and I don’t own a lot of patterned clothing so it is hard to mix what you don’t have.

Anyways I am super excited about this outfit.

So these are two of my most comfortable clothes so I decided to combine them together and be super comfortable at work.  (I mean leaving out the heels of course).

So why does this work for mixing patterns?  When I mix patterns I like to stick with one piece that is black and white.  I consider a black and white pattern to be one of the most neutral you can get because both colors go well with anything.  I added my patterned skirt and this takes the outfit to a bold level.  I love it, I feel like yes there is a lot going on but it is still very flattering.  The horizontal strips typically are not very flattering but given the shirt is tucked into a pencil skirt and my waist is defined, it works out very well.

Is it summer yet?

Hello hello!! Finally we have strung together a few days of consistently 70 degree weather and I am ready for summer.  So much so that I am breaking out my summer going out clothes.  I am excited about the tank tops, lace shirts and light shirts, and wearing them out without a jacket.

Yes I was a little lazy this weekend and went with flats most days but in my defense this is the first time I can wear sandals so I am also really pumped for that as well.  I didn’t fully commit to the all summer feel since I didn’t bring out my shorts/ summer dresses/ rompers, but it just felt way to early for that.  So this weekend I stuck with jeans and my fun tops.  The grey one I have had forever, it is hard to describe but it has these small holes all over so it is like lace.  Of course the all over lace shirt I bought in the fall I am dying to wear it in the summer.  Then my classic chill tank top that I wear all the time in the summer.

I can feel it, lace shirts are going to be my thing this summer.  I have this one and I bought like 3 more, I don’t envision myself stopping.

Lace crop tops

Hello Hello!! I know I am probably pretty late to the crop top party but apparently I am self-conscious about my belly.   Even though it took me awhile to come around but I have found a type of crop top that I will wear and actually looks good. (And apparently it is a trend that I am going to be all about this summer since I have bought 3).

Here is probably my favorite, and the only one I have worn since the weather finally came around.

So why do I love this crop top?  Well to start off it is lace, I love lace almost anything.  When I saw this crop top the lace was the reason I even looked at it.  The clincher was the back details you can see below.  Why does this cop top work for me?  It has to do with the top being lose and a little long for a crop top.  The top being loss around the bottom really works for me.  When the top is paired with high-waisted pants or skirt, it really highlights how small my waist is.

My one problem with the above outfit is that I do not think my pants are high enough.  I find it weird that my belly button just sort of pops out from the pants.  I am on the look out for high-waisted pants that will work.  Right now I have a skirt to wear it with when it is warmer and I have some shorts it will look good with.

The back.

Booties a quick pro/con list

Hello Hello!!  Now I love boots and as of lately I love booties.  I didn’t think I would love them as much as I do.  I think they are going to be in style for awhile so that is how I validate buying them.  This season I have bought a few pairs and I just want to quickly talk about what I like about each and what I wish was changed.

The two on the right are fairly similar in cut and style, they have a block/ stacked heel and the shaft goes up to the same height all around.  The large picture on the left (currently my favorite if you couldn’t tell) have a stacked heel and the shaft comes to a V in front.

The two on the right-

  • I love- how comfortable they are, their statement focal point (metallic heel and the straps on the back), I can wear socks with them, I like that they aren’t leather so I don’t have to be as careful with them, and their price.
  • I dislike- their lack of mobility since the front comes up as high as the sides it really constricts the movement of my ankles.  Which I wasn’t expecting when I bought them.

The one on the left

  • I love- the V in the front, I feel like it really makes my leg look longer when I wear them, the cutouts along the side are amazing.  They are this amazing suede that yes I do need to be more careful with but I feel so fancy when I wear them.
  • I dislike- the leather that comes up on the side needs to be broken in, the first few times I wore them they did leave marks on my ankles but after a few wears its much better, I cannot really wear socks with them.  And the price, as I said above they are real leather and designer which comes with a price tag.

Here is a quick side by side of me styling the brown ones similarly.

So which one looks better?  I personally prefer the ones on the left, as I said before I think the V really elongates my legs which as a short person is great.

The next pair of booties I am thinking about buying are a pair that has a V or open sides, I think they look really cool but I am unsure how they will fit or stay on so I have been hesitating.
