Outfits of May 2017

May was full of incredible adventures and, looking back, I still can’t believe how much I managed to pack in there.

My husband and I took a trip to California and the moment we got back, I attended a baby shower for one of my good friends (and the shower my lady girl gang from work!). I got my hair cut (!), worked a graduation, turned 29, and celebrated my birthday with family, friends, and my husband, who had a thrilling weekend planned for me.

Here’s what I wore. I originally wanted a Minnie Mouse-inspired dress to wear to Disneyland, but the one I ordered (sadly) didn’t fit. So I had to improvise. I wanted something cute and feminine, but I still wanted to be comfortable. This worked out well!

Outfit details

  • Shirt: Old Navy
  • Skirt: Forever 21
  • Shoes: DSW (Converse)
  • Minnie Mouse ears: Disney World

You can’t see this outfit up close, but I love these photos, so I had to include them! My husband, my parents, and I traveled on a deserted road to get to Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve, so we stopped to snap some photos.

Outfit details

  • Dress: LuLaRoe Nicole
  • Shoes: Payless

This outfit served me well at Hearst Castle and at Montano de Oro beach. I DIE for this shirt, which is a reference to both the Coolio song and one of my favorite movies, “Clueless.”

And here’s a peek at my incredible birthday weekend (and the days leading up to it). My husband planned a surprise weekend, which he revealed to me through a series of riddles given to me each day leading up to it. It was so incredibly creative and romantic and it got me even more pumped for a wonderful weekend. We visited an arcade; went out to dinner; stopped by a brewery; I got my nails done; we went to a vineyard; visited Mystic; and ate all kinds of delicious foods. My friends and family were wonderful to me, too. I’m so lucky.

Outfits of March 2017

It was a busy month that absolutely flew right by. It started with one of my most favorite events at my job—Giving Day, where we collect donations for scholarships over 24 hours—and a fun visit to see my parents with California. It ended with a trip to Maine. So, not a bad month. 😉

And here’s what I wore.

I was super excited about this new skirt and I was rocking my Giving Day 2017 shirt!

Outfit details

  • Skirt: Forever 21
  • Shirt: Springfield College exclusive 🙂
  • Boots: Payless
  • Tights: WeLoveColors

I decided to wear my Wednesday Addams dress to see the Backstreet Boys in Vegas!

This month, I tried my first-ever LulaRoe Julia. I wasn’t sure I could pull it off and, quite frankly, I felt a little self-conscious wearing it without a shrug. But I think it looked cute with the black cardigan! I used a hair tie to make the dress shorter and a bit more flattering, and I think it worked.

Outfit details

  • Dress: LulaRoe (Julia)
  • Cardigan: Ross
  • Tights; WeLoveColors
  • Boots: Payless

I’m totally cheesy and I love buying clothes that brandish the name of the place I’ve just visited. So, I couldn’t pass up this adorable sweater, which has “Maine” sprawled across it in rope.

Outfit details

  • Sweater: Shop in Portland, ME
  • Jeans: Old Navy
  • Boots: DSW

Outfits of February 2017

I’m convinced that February is the worst month of the year.

But this February had some good parts: a wonderful Galentine’s Day celebration with friends; a perfect Valentine’s Day with my husband; a few adventures (to breweries, museums, restaurants); lots of shopping (some might argue too much…); and some unseasonably beautiful weather (thanks, climate change!).

Here’s what I wore.

Outfits of January 2017

Y’all, it’s been a month. This is me doing my best to keep living a good life despite being overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, and (quite frankly) scared at the America we’re living in right now.

But I digress.

In January, I read some books, saw some movies, shopped a lot, ate some delicious food, celebrated some friends at a baby shower, got back into cooking. I also set up a place to take better outfit photos. However, I haven’t used it yet because it’s in my sunroom and it’s cold in there. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This month, I also got into (and quickly became addicted to) LulaRoe. Like I needed another reason to spend money. But check out my first pair of leggings at the end of this post!

Here’s what I wore this month.

Outfits of the Week: April 10, 2016

Is it spring yet? I’m over this cold weather, so I’m praying for warmer days. I’m really tired of wearing leggings/tights with my dresses.

At home, we’re changing our second bedroom into a workout room and moving all of our clothes into the bedroom, so fingers crossed that helps with lighting for outfit photos!

Outfits of the Week: March 27, 2016

It was my last week before heading to Disney World and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which means it was automatically a good one (even if I did stay home one day this week sick).

PLUS. I MET LAUREN GODDAMN CONRAD. More on that another day, but it was a good fucking week.

Here’s what I wore! (Warning: my pics weren’t so great this week. Sue me.)

I saw this dress and needed it instantly. The colors are so spring-y, and it was absolutely perfect to wear to meet…

LAUREN CONRAD!

AHHHHHHH! My face is the literal epitome of “OHMYGOD.” Like, I could not be smiling any harder (proof that I totally wear my heart on my sleeve). Needless to say, that is not the smile I intended to have in this photo, but I was just so excited to finally meet Lauren Conrad, who I’ve loved since I was in high school, that I couldn’t help it.

I just realized I wore the exact same flats every day this week.

My favorite thing I wore this week was my pink, mint green, and black dress. But I also loved what I wore yesterday, too. It was plain, but I felt cute in it. I’ve had that shirt for a while but didn’t fit into before—and now I do!

What was the best thing you wore this week?

Outfits of the Week: March 20, 2016

It’s spring.

But it snowed on Monday.

This was my face.

3-20wednesday

GUYS. These jeggings are my new favorite. I found them at Walmart (I was totally not there to shop for clothes, but these things happen, you know?). I had to resist the urge to buy 20 pairs, mostly because I’m going on vacation soon and really need to not be spending a gazillion dollars on leggings. So, I allowed myself one pair. And guess what? It rang up as $1. The clothes gods were in my favor that day, so now when I wear them, I feel extra great in them. One of my coworkers described them as “like buttah” which I loved, and I told Bill that they felt like wearing a warm hug. So good.

Outfit details

  • Leggings: Walmart
  • Top: Old Navy
  • Tank: Old Navy
  • Boots: Rainbow, I think?

3-20thursday

This was my fave outfit of the week. I love this dress! Here’s a close-up of the pattern.

HEARTS.

Hearts! And a little bow! Ahhh, I die. My work bestie described these hearts as reminiscent of the Webdings font and she could not have been more accurate.

Outfit details

  • Dress: Modcloth
  • Tights: WeLoveColors
  • Cardigan: Old Navy

3-20friday

And, to close out the week, some polka dots on polka dots action.

And, last (but certainly not least), my best Snapchat selfie of the week, using that filter that makes you look prettier than you are!
