Happy Friday everyone 🙂 I hope your week has been a great one and you’ve had some time to enjoy this extra hour of sunlight! It’s amazing what more daylight has done to my post-work mood. So are you ready for some outfits?!
U of I Fan // Not sure if any of you are aware but this week was the start of March Madness! While I don’t even know if U of I is in the basketball competition (assuming not), these are their colors and it made me look kinda sportsy?
Drapey With a Side of Structure // I like the combination of this super flowy tunic with the jean jacket. With the coming of Spring, I felt it was necessary to add a little pop of color to a seemingly dark outfit. I’ve been wearing dark colors almost exclusively through winter, so I’m really excited to put a punch of color back into my wardrobe.
Madam Monochromatic // I had been searching high and low for a simple black skirt for a while when I stumbled upon this number at Cross Roads. I love the yoga pant fold-over top (sorry that sounds like a mouthfull). If you go the monochromatic route, it looks a bit like a dress!
Ariana Inspired // Twin and I watched the SNL that Ariana Grande hosted. If you haven’t seen it yet I would highly recommend (girl is mega talented). While I don’t have quite enough hair to make her statement pony tail, I opted for a half-pony and actually loved how it looked! The only part of my outfit that was Ariana inspired were my shoes. Since she’s so tiny, she is always wearing a pair of heels.
So how was your week? Which outfit do you like best?
We made it to Friday! I hope your week was a good one, pretty slow one for me. I’ve been in a bit of a weeknight rut, lots of TV and blog reading. Do you guys do anything fun to spice up your week nights?!
If I had to define my style I’d say boho hipster. I really love flowy printed tops (stripes, floral, geometric, I love em all).
I absolutely love these Tom’s Wedges my parents got me for Christmas. They’re the easiest “heeled” shoe to walk in, and are SUPER light.
It’s been absolutely freezing here in the Windy City. I’m talking negatives! It’s been harping on my usual go-to style of tights, dresses, and skirts.
Which outfit is your favorite? PS Apologies for the mirror pics, I’ll try to start taking them before work haha.
Any fun weekend plans?!
Can you guys believe Thanksgiving is next week?! I can’t wait! I was out of the country last year, so I haven’t had a good Thanksgiving feast in 2 years.
While I can’t wait for Thanksgiving, I also can’t wait for the day after because that means it’s officially Christmas season! I’ll be dreaming of hot chocolate, Michael Buble’s Christmas album, sparkly lights, and of course holiday gift giving until then.
I love gift giving, so I’ve decided to put together a few gift guides for all of you and all the special people in your life.
- This super fun day planner will make sure she gets sh*t done
- Inspirational mug that will set a positive vibe for the day
- Cutesy floral water bottle, to look pretty while being healthy. Win-win.
- Desk organizer helps with decluttering the small space she calls home 5 days a week
- A motivational print to get her through 9-5
- A minimalistic calendar will help her organize her life inside and outside the office
- A personalized mousepad to help make your lil space a little more you
Happy weekend guys! My week went by pretty quickly, so that was great. How about yours?
Midas Touch Tones // Striped bat-winged crop top, skinnies, riding boots – the dark gold color is a perfect one for fall
Spanish-inspired Layers // Polka dot dress, open backed top, booties – layering shirts over dresses is a style I picked up while living in Madrid for a year
Two Trends Collide // Black crocheted poncho meets denim tunic – can’t decide on a trend to wear? Why choose?! Rock two trends at once (PS it’s a super comfy cozy outfit)
Aztec Assets // Urban Outfitters gray tunic, black skinnies, printed scarf. There’s no easier way to add a little oomph to your outfit than pairing it with a bold scarf.
Jumpin for Jumpers // Patterned romper hand me down, black cardigan, and tights – the only bad aspect of this outfit is adding 2 minutes on to your bathroom break, but all in the name of fashion, right?
Whoops, as you can tell I forgot to snap a ootd selfie twice this week. So I give you three of my outfits from the past 7 days.
1. Folky hipster // Olive green corduroys (pacsun), a dainty white top (thrifted), and a coral colored cardi.
2. Lady Lumberjack // Leggings, oversized plaid top (Old Navy), crocheted cardi (thrifted), and lion-like infinity scarf (akira).
3. Military Chic // Black skinnies (primark), brown riding boots (nordstrom rack), striped peplum tee (free people), and army vest (f21)
