OOTW

It’s Friday!

Today’s outfit of the week is another look from vacation. I like to call it my “travel outfit” because it’s super comfy for long car rides, but can be turned into something casual for stops or last minute family visits. I don’t know about you guys, but when I travel I want an outfit that is comfortable, but that I can also turn into something nice because changing in the car is hard!

This mural is on the campus of Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. There was a tunnel filled with positive graffiti & art that you could walk through. I thought it was a pretty cool idea…

I’ve been slacking on the blogging & posting because I literally feel like I’ve been running these past two weeks to get everything done. But I’m all moved into my apartment & it’s slowly coming together. My roommates already feel like family & we have so much fun together, I honestly forget to post on Instagram & check my blog. But I’ll focus more, I promise 😉

I have also been trying to figure out future posts & get them ready to go because homework will soon consume my life… I want to keep the posts steady & relevant so please, please let me know what you like or want to see more of! I got a lot of positive feedback on my last OOTW, & that’s what makes it all worth it. 🙂 So feel free to comment or DM me because I would love to chat & know what you think!

Happy Friday!

This week’s outfit of the week is an ultra comfy, but stylish ensemble. I paired a soft off-the-shoulder top with soft denim shorts from Forever21 & of course, the sandals I can’t live without. Some sunnies completed the look. I’ve mentioned all of these items in past OOTW’s, but they are very versatile items & let’s be honest, I can’t afford new clothes every week (although I wish). And since I assume most of you also can’t afford a mall trip every week as well, try taking the same items & adding a new set of jewelry or pair of shoes to create something completely different & unique. I’m kinda into the capsule wardrobe recently…

In other news, I put up my first blog post from vacation! I had a wonderful time & I can’t wait to share more with you all, but I’m focused on moving currently! I also can’t wait to decorate my new apartment & give you all a tour… but that will come much later. For now, go check out my Chicago post & let me know what you think!

These pictures were taken near the Cincinnati Bridge in Ohio. It was so hot & humid that we decided to skip the city & camp out in Starbucks!

For this week’s outfit, I paired a light pink bodysuit from Forever21 with shorts from H&M that I’ve talked about a bunch because I actually love them. I wasn’t sure how to feel about the bodysuit trend, but this one is super comfy & you don’t have to worry about it becoming untucked (idk how to describe it) from your shorts, like you would a t-shirt or tank. Instead of  a bodysuit, you could even wear a one piece with shorts for the beach or beginning-of-the- school-year pool parties. I opted for white Keds because I was exploring the Windy City (expect a blog post with lots of pics!!), but I think sneakers are the best shoe for this look. But feel free to play around with it! That’s why I love fashion; there are no rules.

Have a great weekend & don’t forget to read my last post raving about my favorite planners!

Today’s outfit of the week includes pieces that I’ve talked about before, but I put them together to create something totally different.

The shorts are from H&M & they are the first pair I’ve actually really liked. And the top is another favorite from the LC Lauren Conrad collection. (I just love all her stuff!) The shoes are from a post a few weeks ago, but they are basically the only shoe I’m wearing these days! If there is one shoe you need, it’s a basic brown sandal.

This look is easy to recreate & mix & match pieces with. You could also pair with Keds & a backpack for a more casual look for class.

You can’t tell much in this picture, but the wall was the brightest yellow color & it was just calling my name for a picture! I have the mind of a blogger & avid Instagrammer for sure…

This week’s outfit of the week is a grey dress from Forever21 & booties from who-knows-where because I got them so long ago! I will link a similar pair down below though, because trust me, you need a shoe like this. They are so basic & can be worn in the summer or winter!

Recently I’ve been trying to create office appropriate outfits & I’m realizing I don’t have a lot of professional clothes! But I have plenty of time to grow a collection. This dress is modest, but comfy & not too “stuffy” so it’s perfect business-casual wear.

There are actually so many cute places in my town to take pictures! I took this one by a laundromat…
…& this one behind the catholic church! It was a super humid day so grey was a bad choice in terms of sweat butttt I got a lot of good pictures. Photos by Emily Hobrock @e_hobrock

Good morning!

This week’s outfit of the week is super simple. I’m wearing my favorite t-shirt dress from Forever 21 paired with espadrilles from Steve Madden. I wear this dress at least once a week so I really need to invest in one of every color! And these shoes are the perfect pair of slip-ons that are neutral enough to go with a lot. It looks like I put in effort, but that’s what I love about t-shirt dresses…

 

 

I’m having a hard time with finding unique locations for my outfit of the week… Let me know if y’all  have any creative ideas!

Good morning!

This week’s outfit of the week is all from Charming Charlie. I am absolutely obsessed with that store! It really helps my OCD because it’s all color coordinated. I got the dress last summer & I love it because it can be dressed up or down. For work, I usually pair it with wedges & then on weekends I trade out the wedges for slip on’s. I just recently got these sandals & they are a perfect neutral brown. I think I’ve worn them every day this week…

As for my weekend, I’m going to Ikea today to shop for my apartment. I mostly have all my decorations, but I’m honestly having an interior design crisis because there are so many cute ideas I want to do, but I don’t know how to put them all together?! So hopefully going to Ikea will help, but I will most likely just buy more unnecessary items. So wish me luck. And tomorrow I have a wedding to attend that I’m super excited about. I’m also thinking about filming a wedding get ready with me… I don’t know yet, but keep an eye out for that 😉

Also, I’m in love with Lauren Conrad’s new July collection! Already saving up my monies…

Fashion Hacks to Minimize Sweat

Summer is probably my least favorite time of year in terms of dressing. I feel like no matter what I put on, I’ll just end up sweating & ruining my look. I also live in Arizona where an average day in July could be 115 degrees. So in this post, I present to you the few hacks I have learned for still looking presentable in the dog days of summer.

The top tip I suggest is wearing a bralette or better yet, nothing at all. Bralettes work well with backless dresses if you can’t pull off the no-bra look, & they also don’t have an underwire that causes uncomfortableness & boob sweat. (Don’t even get me started.)

Second tip: wear loose & flowy clothing as much as possible. Peplum tops, t-shirt dresses & cotton shorts are just a few of my go-tos.

Also, wear light colors as much as possible. Not only do light colors not show sweat as much, but technically, they should help keep you cooler.

Most importantly, don’t bother doing your hair. If you live in humidity, you probably already know that. Not only is it a good excuse to give your locks a break, but you don’t have to worry about neck sweat & all that comes with wearing your hair down in the summer. Try a messy ponytail with a bandana like shown here, or easy braids like this one.

Last but not least, minimize your accessories. Limit chunky necklaces, scarves & backpacks. Try thin chokers, bandanas & cross body purses. You’ll thank yourself later!

I hope these tips help y’all! Let me know what you do to minimize sweat this time of year because I would definitely like to know!

Happy Friday!

Todays’s outfit of the week is the closest I am going to get to wearing nothing, which is unfortunately, socially unacceptable. It’s been so hot lately I am unmotivated to look cute because I just end up melting.

I got these shorts at H&M a few weeks ago & I was so excited to find them because I’ve been looking for quality shorts for so long. I really dislike shorts & pants shopping because it’s so hard to find pants that fit my legs & my hips. The struggle is real.

Also, I’m wearing the same shoes from last week because they are super cute & comfy. Check out my last post for deets…

P.S. Have a happy 4th!!

These shorts are super comfy & actually fit! I got the top from a friend a few years ago, but its sheer lace & super cool for hot days. And of course, I’m wearing my favorite shoes ever. (I have a lot of fav shoes if you couldn’t already tell…) My choker is from the LC Lauren Conrad collection.

Happy Friday!

Today’s outfit of the week is pretty simple: a black romper, sun hat & flip flops. Put a bunch of basic items together, to create a chic, minimalistic look.

This was one of the few times I wasn’t wearing a bathing suit over the weekend, so I thought I should capture it! I got the shoes at Charming Charlie & I always get a lot of compliments whenever I wear them (btw, they’ve having a semi-annual sale right now). I’m not sure what they’re called though… Strappy sandals? Band flip flops? Idk, but they’re cute & that’s all that matters! I’ll link similar items below so you can snag yourself a pair! (& they’re both under $20)
