The best part about going home for breaks is getting to delve into my wardrobe with all of the clothes that I haven’t been able to wear while I’m at school. For instance, I had completely forgotten that I owned this delightfully fuzzy monstrosity which is why it’s getting a little love from me today. It’s wonderful because it’s warm, but slightly less wonderful because it sheds and only has 3/4 length sleeves so my arm-shins are always cold. Despite that, my poor chilly arm-shins have never been styled better.
It’s a shame that I want to welcome November in with warm coat clothed arms and mitten covered hands, but I can’t because it’s still 70 degrees outside. Regardless of that, I refuse to go back to wearing shorts. My fall aesthetic is in full swing and while I won’t go full force with it, I won’t let the temperature stop me from wearing my tights and knitwear. For that reason, I decided to pair one of my summer favorite, this lightweight, open back F21 dress, with colored tights and a chunky cardigan. It’s warm enough to keep me from suffering in the freezing classroom but not so warm that I won’t be able to survive the actual outdoors.
Today I woke up at 7AM with a purpose, which is something that hasn’t happened in months. Said purpose was sadly and 8AM class. I made the executive decision to wear something that was visually cool, but still comfy enough to slip into easily and rock with in the early morning. Flannel makes every early morning about 27.6% better!
I like sleeveless shirts in the summer time, but for some reason I only own four. My aunt picked this gem up for me from H&M a week or so ago and this is my first time wearing it. And I am loving it! I like that the floral print is a little bit more on the ‘mature’ side and a little bit more subdued in terms of it’s color scheme. I contrasted that with this bright red skirt from Forever 21 and I think it makes somewhat of a nice semi-tropical fusion that I’m totally digging.
Do any of you do that thing where you randomly swap out things in your outfit throughout the day, until it gets to the point where the outfit you change out of to go to bed is nothing like the one you put on in the morning? This is definitely one of those outfits for me. I wore it without the button-down, with the button-down, as a shirt with a pair of jeans, as a shirt with a skirt, and swapped out accessories all within the same day. For some reason, I just could never become satisfied with my styling of this outfit and I do not know why. I can only hope that it is not the start of an outfit rut. 😦
And in other news, I’ve recently started up a YouTube channel in case any of you want to check that bad boy. I’ve got one video up so far and it’s a tutorial from one of the looks created in my review of the Art Throb palette from NYX. I won’t be abandoning this blog though, because this blog is my main squeeze and my #bae, but if you ever want to see me beyond photos, then be sure to visit and subscribe to my channel out!
At this time last week I was lacing up my boots to deal with the snow that was still on the ground and now it’s 70 degrees outside. This means that not only have I been blessed with a bit of an early spring, but I finally get to whip out my good ol’ shortalls! I may have classed them up a bit with a nice necklace and a pair of loafers, yet I still can’t help feeling as if I should give my green pepper garden another try. They just add a nice laid-back and casual vibe to every outfit I make with them. Throw in my new fuzzy sweater from F21 (which has allowed me to take a break from being a chic yeti, and stroll into country yeti territory) and I’ve got my go-to combo for spring.
What is your go-to or favorite item for Spring?
Fun fact: I got dressed in the dark this morning and getting dressed in the dark is a perfectly good excuse for rocking a black and white outfit. To be honest, the dramatic air of the color combo doesn’t really need any specific reason to be integrated into anyone’s attire beyond the fact that it always looks cool, but it’s especially great when you’re having one of those mornings. I decided to mix things up a bit in the outfit by pairing it with my new favorite beanie from Forever 21 for a little bit of extra warmth. Thus, my fall aesthetic is on and going stronger than ever.
