In the middle of winter, weather can vary a lot, so it is good to wear multiple heavy layers. Today I have 2 of my favorite outfits that use layering to its advantage.
This outfit is something you would find me wearing on a lazy day. I have on one of favorite pair of leggings and a green hoodie. Adding the denim jacket and accented shoes really create the look into something more interesting. I added a few pins and buttons onto the jacket to spice it up a bit more. Here is where everything is from:
Leggings: JC Penny
Denim Jacket: Old Navy
Here is a closer look at the top. It can be worn with rolled up sleeves, or rolled down, depending on the weather. I love the long pull ties on the hoodie that really give it a good comfy look. One of my favorite things about the hoodie is how the bottom is cut, so that it looks nicer than the average, lazy hoodie.
Here are the buttons and pins that I put on the jacket. They are all different shapes, colors, and sizes, which makes it look balanced and not too much. If you want to see where the pins on the left are from, check out this blog post. My friend gave me the pin on the right from Disney, and it is super cute!
This second look takes a casual cropped sweater and dresses it up a little. I am wearing a thin, flowy, short sleeved, button up soft pink shirt under a fuzzy cropped sweater. I added a accent necklace to finish the business look. It is still super comfy, and would be perfect for an outing or going somewhere when you want to look a little nice. Here is where everything is from:
Sweater: JC Penny
Shirt: Forever 21
Jeans: American Eagle
The look of the top reminds me of a lot of shirts seen in stores, where they have two tops sewn together. I didn't think it would look cute if I tried to make it work myself, but it turned out really nice.
I have been looking for a cute pair of black ankle boots for forever, and it was no surprise when I finally found the perfect pair at H&M. My other boots that are shown a lot on the blog are also from H&M, and they are my favorite pair of shoes ever. I love how good the quality is, how cute they are, and also how cheap they are! Both boots were found for under $50.
That concludes this outfit post, it is the first of 2017! How is 2017 going for you so far? Let me know in the comments below. Also, if you have any personal tips on how to layer in winter, I would love to hear them! I also wanted to point out that I have been posting more often on social media recently, so make sure you are following me on all platforms to get more info and pictures from the blog. Have a fantastic week!
Woo-hoo! It's already time for another back to school outfit post. Picking out an outfit for the first day of school can be a hard decision, but with the help from my style and theme oriented looks, you will be more than ready by the time school starts. Today's look takes on a whole new style for back-to-school, and I hope you enjoy it!
Girly & Fun
If you are looking for a flouncy, fun look for the first day of school, a dress is the go-to. I wear a lot more dresses and skirts than the average person, because I find they can be comfier than jeans and can look professional and put-together. This dress combines the popular tie-up top with a fun fall color, making it great for back-to-school. Here is where everything is from:
With a side view it is a lot easier to see the height and style of the shoes I am wearing. I hate wearing high heels, and you will often find me wearing sneakers with every dress. Despite my loathing of uncomfortable shoes, I found these platforms and fell in love. They go with any outfit, and give some height, without your feet being vertical to the ground. Plus, it gives an aura for slightly larger feet, which is perfect for people with very tiny feet.
Here is a closer look of the rings I am wearing with this look. They came in a set of 5, with these three gold colored, and another two which are silver. I loved these rings because they are delicate and simple, similar to all the jewelry I wear. I am picky with jewelry and I don't want like anything bulky that will annoy me throughout the day, because I'll end up taking it off after 5 minutes. Therefore, I tend to choose thin, light stands that feel like I am not wearing anything, but add a hint of color to the outfit.
I hope this look inspired you in picking out the perfect look for the first day of school. If you found that this look didn't fit your style, check out my links below this post for other outfits, each with a different style and theme. Let me know in the comments if I haven't covered your style yet, and I will aim to do it either this year or the next. There will be one more outfit in my back to school collection for this year, so keep your eyes peeled on social media. Have a happy day!

Back to School Outfits from 2015
There is finally a new outfit post on the blog, hooray! As you might have seen already, I have been wearing a lot of dresses recently. I find that the time in-between seasons is perfect weather for dresses. They're great at both keeping you warm, cool, and comfy all at once. Here is a dress I think is great for a cool spring day, when the sun is out and shining, but there may be a breeze or a bit of rain.
Ta da! Although it may look like nothing special, this outfit is probably one of the most comfiest articles of clothing I own. The long sleeved dress is great for wearing down, or scrunching up if you get hot. The dress is also not tight-fit, so it is very breathable and bouncy. Plus, the classy pattern dresses up the look, making it acceptable to wear to work or a casual party. I paired the look with sneakers because the weather isn't warm enough to wear sandals yet. Here is where everything is from.
Dress: American Eagle
Here is a closer view on the pattern of the dress. Sorry for the weird way I'm holding it, it was very windy outside. I am wearing 2 bracelets on my wrist to accent the dress a little. Since the neckline cuts low and has the tie (which I love - it is so original and cute!) there is little possibility to wear a necklace. Therefore, I threw a splash of color on my wrist, and it makes the outfit look less plain.
I hope you enjoyed reading today's post! I am very happy to get back to regular posting of outfits, and other things. Also, the weather is finally starting to get warmer, and I'm itching for summer vacation. Let me know in the comments if you have an obsession with dresses (like me), and/or you want to see more posts similar to this. Have a fantastic week!
Happy National Thrift Shop Day! And although today's outfit does not include anything bought at a thrift shop, I just wanted to proclaim this news to you. Anyway, today's look will help you plan the perfect look for a picnic in the summertime. This outfit is great for a casual party or day out, and it works for hot and cool weather in the summertime.
Please excuse me if every picture has a hand on my hip, I think I am addicted to that pose. Here is what I am wearing:
Shorts: 1st Kiss Brand (bought at Marshalls)
I honestly think this outfit is perfect for something that's casual, but prepared. The high waisted shorts and flowy, floral top go perfectly together. I added the cardigan to give a more modest look to the summer outfit, and it is a great addition for a breezy day in the park.
Although the shoes weren't a main part of the outfit, I would like to note that they are Teva's, and can be bought at Famous Footwear, DSW, etc. I have had mine for 4 years, and they are my go-to summer footwear.
I hope this ensemble gave you some inspiration for your next party/picnic/day out! If you do recreate my outfit, or make one of your own, please tag me in a picture on Instagram or Twitter! My details are located on the home screen, contact page, or bottom of the website. I plan on my next outfits post being Back to School outfits, if you have any ideas of what you want to see, let me know.
