Sometimes it’s hard to remove yourself from the warm, coziness of your bed in the morning. While usually a time crunch that’s brought on by my attachment to a nice mattress + comforter leads to a less carefully crafted outfit for me, apparently nothing cancels out that occurrence quite like running low on wearable clothes. Procrastinating on life and laundry has never treated me better.
I have a love of sweaters that runs so great that I don’t even have a need for them to be functional anymore. This sweater does nothing to keep me warm in this emerging winter cold and I decided to continue the trend of non-winter-functional pieces by layering it over top of this pastel, floral sleeveless button-down. I’m on this new kick of pulling my summer pieced into winter wear because I like a challenge (read: my wardrobe is not as expansive as I wish it was). Don’t limit your clothes to the season friends. Mix and match to your heart’s content. Live your dreams.
For the first time I somewhat participated in Black Friday shopping! Unfortunately (or I guess it is actually quite fortunate), that participation was limited to my purchase of 1 item for my mother and not any of the products that I bought while I was home for Thanksgiving, including this sweater! Regardless, it’s warm and cozy and I got it from TJ Maxx so I can now officially call myself a budget savvy Maxxinista! I’m also completely there for the color combo and pattern as it is currently rocking my world. This being said, I am still on the sweater hunt; my next conquest: a good old fashioned holiday sweater!
I’ve had a pretty busy time this January, starting with trying to figure out this whole “school” thing again (it only takes a couple of weeks to forget how much of a pain an education can be – that being said, I do enjoy learning.) Then, after only being back for about a week, I found out my regional HOSA competition was coming up, so I rushed to buy my very first suit (which will be seen in a later post.) The most spectacular news, though, is that I won 1st place in my event! So, I said to myself, ‘self, what is a better way to celebrate winning something for the first time in your life than to create a random weekend post?’ and my self said back ‘nothing.’ Thus here we are.
It’s almost winter! Okay, that’s a bit of a lie, but I’m feeling really inspired for the winter season, leading to these lovely outfits down here. As you can probably tell, I’m one of those people who like to wear dresses and skirts year round (my shins are the only part of my legs that really get cold and I have a passionate love for tights), but floral jeans deserve much respect for bringing some spring flare into freezing temperatures. Enjoy! 🙂
