Outfits of November

November was a trying month. It started with the election of Donald Trump, which I am still stunned by, and it ended with some messy, difficult work stuff that really impacted my morale.

But there were some bright spots: a friend who made me a gift to cheer me up; a fun Thanksgiving featuring Cards Against Humanity; the return of “Gilmore Girls”; good friends and coworkers and family; a perfect dog and husband; an invitation back to my alma mater to speak to a class about journalism; the Christmas season.

Here’s what I wore (clearly jeans + boots were my thang).

Outfits of the Week: May 8, 2016

The sun was back, so it was a good week! At work, we were preparing for commencement, and I’m into my second week of the social media course I’m taking. PLUS, I can’t stop buying new clothes, somebody please send help!

Here’s what I wore this week.

Outfits of the Week: May 2, 2016

How is it May already? And why is it so cold even though it’s May? Like, it’s so uncharacteristically chilly and gray and rainy and sad that I’m starting to feel like I may never see the sun again. Sun, where are you? I miss you. Come home soon.

Here’s what I wore this week.

Things I Bought That I Love: Disney and Universal Studios Edition

I had an amazing time in Orlando, Fla., last week at Disney and Universal Studios. Here are some of the great things I bought, starting with the incredible Mickey Mouse tiara (above).

We also nabbed this amazing-and-totally-impractical, Han-Solo-in-carbonite popcorn holder.

And I got these earrings!

Some items from Universal (more specifically, Diagon Alley in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter):

BUTTERBEER MUG (the second in my collection because I’m spoiled)!

Pins that say “head girl” and “Ravenclaw.”

All of these goodies, including:

  • A love potion from Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes
  • A Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes T-shirt
  • A pygmy puff keychain (I already own a pink pygmy puff named Sparkles)
  • Triwizard keychain
  • 9 3/4 button

I got a few other Disney items, too, including:

  • Black and white Mickey and Minnie Mouse plush toys (which are now displayed on our mantel)
  • Mickey Mouse bracelet
  • Minnie Mouse button

And, the BEST OF ALL…

disney-24

THIS COMPLETELY INCREDIBLE R2D2 DRESS.

GUYS.

GUYS.

I gasped out loud and snatched this thing off the rack so goddamn fast. I didn’t care the cost. I had to have it. It is truly one of the best items I own. You can find most of these items here and here.

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.

Cute, right?

Outfit details

  • Shirt: Old Navy
  • Tank: Old Navy
  • Leggings: Rainbow
  • Shoes: Payless

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?

Things I did this week:

  • Finally booked my honeymoon (ahhh!)
  • Pitched the launch of a Snapchat account for the College where I work
  • Attended my very first conference
  • Primered the dining room because apparently we’re going to be painting this house until I die

Here’s what I wore.

On Sunday, my husband and I celebrated my dog’s fourth birthday with family. Seriously. We had an adorable puppy party where we fed the dogs meatball cupcakes, while the rest of us enjoyed pizza and Boston Creme cake (so delicious). I wish I had a close-up of the shoes; I’ll try to take a photo next time I wear them.
