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.

Efficient and easy going out outfit

Hello hello!! I wanted to name this post how to get away with being the laziest person at the bar and no one noticing, then I remembered guys can just put on pants and no one questions them.

Anyways, this weekend I was having a chill night and somehow I was convinced to go out.  I didn’t want to spend a ton of time getting ready, so I went into my closet and looked for clothes that I could wear and it would look like I spent a lot of time getting ready.

This gets much easier in the summer/ spring when clothes are less bulky, but since we were down in the 50s that day I had to make do.  So I went for boots, jeans, and a pretty casual top. 

The reason this outfit really works and doesn’t look like it was just thrown on is due to the colored jeans, animal printed top and the leather jacket.  The colored jeans, I love to have these in my closet to mix in because she you wear them it’s unexpected and people tend to think you put more thought in rather then just throwing on regular jeans.  Animal printed tops are great if you don’t own one please buy one, I prefer zebra print. This one is actually a giraffe printed top, I got it years ago and it’s just been a great top that I can throw on.  As with the colored jeans most women don’t just throw on an animal printed top, so when you do it comes off as a statement.  (And it looks really great with the burgundy jeans).  Lastly, the leather jacket it’s just the toping on the outfit.  Finishes everything off and looks amazing.

This was my first time wearing the jacket and I could not be happier. This light grey color didn’t really match the grey of the boots which I will put as a slight critique but the jacket is amazing I couldn’t pass up wearing it.  It’s the blank NYC jacket, if you want the link I’ll get it but it was expensive.  Well worth the price in my opinion.

Striped shirt

Hello hello!  In fashion there are all these rules, don’t wear this and don’t wear that because you’re short/plus-size/tall etc. At first I took these at face value because I assumed someone had been testing them out, now I seem to try them out more.

You shouldn’t wear horizontal stripes because they will make you look wider, which I guess is kind of true but I think it depends on the person and the shirt.  I don’t really own a lot of striped shirts but I wanted one.  I found this shirt on Amazon, of course, and decided to give stripes a try. It helped that on this adventure the shirt was only $15.

The shirt is long so as a short person I do have to tuck it in to make sure I look put together.  When I first got it I was like this shirt is so long I’ll never wear it.  Then a casual Friday came along and I was like I’m lazy what can I wear without an undershirt. At that point I loved it and now want to wear it all the time. 

I cannot say enough about this shirt. The cut and fit of it are amazing, yes it’s long but it’s not huge at the bottom so I am able to to tuck it in and still look good.  This is also one of these softest shirts I own so I am inclined to wear it all the time.
