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.
