Midweek Casual Day

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.

Decisions decisions

Hello hello!! So this past weekend it was kind of cold and raining a bit, obviously the best thing to wear is boots.  So I was wearing skinny jeans and wanted to pair them with a cute pair of booties.

So the options are brown or black.

So yes, this outfit is very similar and does not change too much with the change of the shoes.  The brown boots stick out a bit more and catch a little more attention.  The rest of the outfit is muted and so allows the brown boots to be louder.  The black boots in this outfit are a little more go with the flow.  But then the heel of the boots pops out due to the metallic heal.

So which did I chose?  I went with the brown boots to make a little bit more of a statement.  I kind of went to a dive bar and the black boots felt a little too fancy.

Emerald Dress

Hello Hello!!  A few weeks ago I meet up with one of my best friends and I actually went to a mall for the first time in forever.  (I hate malls, I think they are overly crowded).  Anyways while we were walking around I didn’t really see anything I liked until we got to the last store and then I wanted to buy everything.  What was the last store?  Zara!  I am going to share my thoughts on Zara in a later post but I wanted to rave about one specific thing I bought.

Ahh I love shift dresses, they are so lose and free to be styled however you want.  This shift dress caught my eye right when I walked in the door.  The ruffled sleeves are super cute.  Combined with the v-neck of this dress.  I just want to say the cut of the v-neck is perfect, its low but does not show too much cleavage.  Actually the bright red color of this dress caught my attention but it was not in my size.  I hesitated with the green because its not usually my color but my friend convinced me to try it on anyways.

I am so happy I did, this dress fit me perfectly and at that point I could not leave the store without it.  And the green color is amazing, since I have blue eyes I usually avoid that color but I really liked how this dress looked.

Reebok Workout Pants

Hello Hello!!  I just wanted to take a minute and rave about my favorite workout pants.  It is not even a specific pair, it is just Reebok workout pants in general.  In my opinion they are the best.  I workout everyday, I do some cardio, some circuit, and I love Barre classes.  So I do a little bit of everything in a given week of working out.

I absolutely love my Reebok workout pants, I must own like 6 pairs of them.  If I get a coupon code I am very likely to use it because I love them and I will use them all the time.

Why do I love them?  First, they are not see through, if you are a girl you know what I am talking about.  Whenever I am working out and doing squats it is my top concern if you can see through the workout pants.  Second, the cut of the pants, most of the pants that I buy are high-waisted.  I love this, I never have to worry about keeping them up.   Next, they are all speedwick so they move the sweat away from your body.  Lastly, the style of these pants are great, they are unique and cool so I love to wear them.

So my favorite pair are the ones on the right, Mest Moves Tights, they are no longer available but I love them so much I bought two last year.  The Middle purple ones I really like the style and mesh inserts on these, also bought these last year and they are not available any more.  The ones on the left are new and so amazing I am thinking about buying a second pair.  These Lux Tights are so amazing, they are so soft and so comfortable I would love to wear them all the time.  I highly recommend these pants or literally almost any workout pants by Reebok.

To help you figure out what size, they do tend to run large.  I typically wear a size small, 4 in pants (US) or my Levi jean size is 26.  But in Reebok workout pants I buy x-smalls and have never had to send any back.

Stevie Nicks Concert

Hello Hello!!  So exciting, I went and saw the legendary Stevie Nicks in concert!!  Seeing her in concert was on my bucket list of concerts I want to go to, as well as Fleetwood Mac.  (If you do not know who that is please look her up she is amazing)

So what do you wear to a Stevie Nicks concert?  She is the queen of boho chic.  Obviously you wear something lace!

Actually to be honest I forgot to take a picture, was probably too excited to leave and get to the concert, but I actually wore a pair of booties.  I know booties in August, but I saw her in Minnesota and no one told the Twin Cities it was summer out.  So the booties actually went with the boho chic vibe I was going for.

By the way the concert was amazing, I highly suggest going to see her.

I love lace shirts

Hello hello!!! I don’t know about you but I absolutely love lace shirts.  I have almost no control when I see one I like, I need to buy it and add to my wardrobe.  Sometimes there is lining and sometimes there is not.  They just give this sophisticated vibe but also a sleek/ sexy edge that I love.

Anyways, I was in Milwaukee this weekend for Summerfest, if you don’t know what that is it’s an 11 day music festival and it’s awesome.  So I went on the forth and the temp was almost 80 during the day but once the sun went down it was going to drop, and the festival is on a lake so it’s a little cooler.  So I was deciding what to wear, I knew pants would be best but the top was up in the air.  I was having a debate between 2 new lace shirts.

So my debate was between wearing white lace or black lace.  The white lace shirt is not lined but with how the lace is it’s not too noticable.  My plan is to not wear an undershirt when I wear it going out, it will have an edge.  I was wearing it with a nudish bra but I feel like when I wear it to a bar a black bra will look sweet.  The black lace shirt is a crop top and it does have lining in it.  I’m not sure if I’m a fan of it being lined but the shirt looks great none the less.  I like that it showed off my stomach.  So both these shirts would be breathable for the day time but provide enough coverage that at night it would be warm enough.

So which one did I wear?  I personally loved the white lace outfit, because it was white and was longer.  My sister loved the black one because she thought it looked better.  So we had a disagreement, then I took pictures and decided to wear the black lace top.  It was amazing and worked out well.

I cannot wait to wear both of these in the future.

Let’s chill outside

Hello hello!!  So the college world series is in town and it is swealtering out.  I want to talk about ideas on how to choose an outfit that will be breathable during the day but still stylish enough to easily transition to a night outfit.

This is the outfit that I wore, I loved it and was very comfortable.  I wore these blue blue shorts, that are neither tight nor lose, they fit perfectly. I paired it with this white shirt that is super lose and billows in the wind and is just really breathable. I tucked in the front of the shirt to highlight my waist.

So why did this outfit work?  First the shorts weren’t super tight so they were very breathable and since they weren’t skin tight I didn’t think they were sticking to me the whole time. Second the shirt was key, picking a shirt that will billows in the wind was the best idea I had.  It was like getting hit with the wind twice.  This shirt in particular is awesome, because it has a lace detail going down the back so it kept my back cool.

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.

Vacation style

Hello hello!!  Sorry for the long delay in posting I’ve been meaning to post but I was on vacation then I was moving and it’s been stressful.  Now it’s all done and I’m back, the no internet thing is a drag but it’s getting fixed soon.  

I wanted to share with you my favorite outfits from my vacation.  It was much hotter in Florida then where I’ve been so I was able to break out all my summer flowy outfits.



I loved wearing my prints together in the top pic.  I think of that elephant cardigan as a basic that can be mixed with anything because it’s black and white and the pattern isn’t obnoxious.  So I wore it with those tropical patterned shorts and it looked great.

The blue/ gray dress in the next photo was by far the most comfortable dress I wore the entire vacation.  It’s really soft and lose and will kind of billow in the wind.  Which if allowed to the wind will blow it up so be careful.  I like to belt the dress because it creates a waist for me, but I would also wear it with out one because it would just be so comfortable.

Then obviously a swimsuit, this is a Victoria secret suit that I love. I makes me a little but mad that they stopped making suits.  And yes that still have pink suits but they are not the same, ask any one who owns the real thing.

New skirt

Hello hello!!! Is anyone out there looking for a great business casual skirt that is bold but can still work in your wardrobe?  I have found a great one and it’s on sale.  This skirt is similar to one I own and have been waiting to buy again.  When I ordered it the final price came out to $20, but it is a final sale so be careful with sizing.

So I just got this yesterday so I have only worn it once but I feel fine recommending it since it’s so similar to my favorite skirt.  It’s a really comfortable skirt and the button details on the side are really great to accentuate your figure.  The color is the reason I bought it, who doesn’t want to own a red pencil skirt.  It will make a big statement every time you wear it.

So the reason I was so willing to buy this online without trying it on was because I have a very similar skirt from Loft already.  The skirt was such a great deal that I was ok if it didn’t fit.  So my waist is 27″ and I do have a butt and thighs. I ordered a regular size 4 and it does fit well a little big around my waist but I’m ok with that.
