Khaki Dress

When I was picking out my outfit today, I was really torn about what to wear. I really wanted to wear this dress, but I didn't really have any sweaters or layers that I felt looks good with it. I just decided to wear it without a sweater (even though it's 27 degrees out) because that's what coats are for, right?

Today I'm going to MASS. MoCA (Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art) which is right in my college town (North Adams, MA) with friends to check out the new play Habit. Instead of watching a play while sitting, you actually walk around the set, which is a house, and watch the play. It's like you're right in the play. I think it sounds pretty cool.

Later tonight my friends and I are going to bingo. We're kind of lame college students, but we love it.

Dress: Charlotte Rouse
Tights: Target
Purse: Target
Flats: Payless Shoestore
Beaded necklace: Found it at work!
Necklace: Goodwill

Today I am wearing a tiny floral print skirt from Forever 21. I really like the shape of this skirt and the detailed buttoning down the front of it. I'm wearing it with a red basic t-shirt and black tights from Target.

I just wore this to class and work. It's nice because it's casual, but still feels very feminine and put together.

Yesterday I felt really pretty in my outfit. I loved the new floral dress that I got from Forever 21 paired with purple tights from Target. Unfortunately, I had to wear a sweater and a heavy coat over the dress when I went out. I can't wait until it's warm and I can wear dresses without a sweater and tights. Today was a little warmer though - a whole 40 degrees out!

I will post my outfit today soon - I'm just super busy these days.

Stay warm,

Heart-Eyed Owls

I am in love with the shirt I am wearing today. I bought it this weekend at Forever 21. I absolutely adore owls so when I saw this shirt I feel in love. It's so cute with the owls' heart shaped eyes. The black skirt is from Forever 21, as well, the tights are from Target, and the belt is from Goodwill.

I tried to braid my hair today. I really like the look of braids, but I'm awful at braiding; plus, my hair falls out of braids easily because of all my layers. I liked how it turned out though.

Back in Plaid

This is my first blog in a couple days - just have felt a lack of motivation to take pictures of myself. But I'm back at it!

I'm home for this long weekend and it's been really nice. Just been hanging out with friends and family - games, shopping, going out to eat. I went to the mall yesterday with Ryne and his family and bought 2 skirts, a sweet owl shirt, and a dress at Forever 21. I wish it was warm enough to wear skirts and dresses without a bunch of layers and tights - soon enough though!

Today I'm wearing a pink plaid shirt, a black belt, and a gold necklace all found at Goodwill. The white cami and   earrings are from Forever 21 and the jeans are from Pacific Sunwear.

Happy President's Day, y'all!

Dinner of Love

Tonight I am going out to dinner with my boyfriend to celebrate Valentine's Day and our four year anniversary (which is tomorrow). I wanted to look a little romantic so I put on my new black skirt from Forever 21, a red shirt from Target, and a peace sign scarf from Fashion Bug.

This morning it actually took me awhile to pick out this outfit - I just couldn't seem to look like what I saw in my head. Don't you hate when that happens? But I really like how it turned out.

Until tomorrow,

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Even if you don't have a significant other make sure that you let the people that you do love know that you love them - and make sure you love yourself today. Take a bath, go shopping, treat yourself!

Today I went all out on the Valentine's attire. It is so gorgeous out today that I could actually take my photos outside. It's a whole 38 degrees here!! It's usually in the lower teens so everyone is very happy today. Isn't it crazy that we get excited for weather above freezing?

The dress I'm wearing is from Forever 21, as well as the necklace and scarf (both gifts from my boyfriend). The red sweater and red coat are from Old Navy and I stole the socks from my boyfriend (they were actually his soccer socks in high school). The earrings are from Hot Topic and the bracelets were all gifts.

Have a great day and remember there are many forms of love to celebrate today - not just romantic ones.

Funeral Attire

Unfortunately, I had to attend my boyfriend's Uncle's funeral today and I only packed this dress to wear today, so I'm wearing it all day today - which isn't a bad thing because it's a pretty little black dress. I actually got this dress for free. Last year at college I was a resident advisor and I was inspecting someone's room and this dress was hanging in this girl's room. I told her that it was really pretty and she told me I could have it because it didn't fit her anymore. What a sweet deal! I just got the necklace at Goodwill on Thursday and the tights are from Target.

Keep smiling,

I seem to really like roses?

I didn't even realize, but today I'm wearing another rose outfit - huh! Anyway, I'm casual today because I came home from college today for the weekend and I wanted to be comfortable during the car ride. The jeans and shirt are both from Pac Sun, and the black rose earrings were a present for Christmas.

Hope your weekend is going well!

Polka Dot Love

I felt like being a little more dressy today while going to class and work. I'm wearing a black and white polka dotted skirt that was a gift from my boyfriend's parents for Christmas, a basic black long sleeve tee from Target, and black tights and black knee high socks. I adore the heart shaped necklace my boyfriend got me from Forever 21. I'm so blessed with the gifts I receive from wonderful people.

Thank goodness tomorrow's Friday, right?

Purple People Eater

I'm very purple today! I just got these purple tights on sale at Target so my whole outfit today was inspired by the tights. I'm wearing a purple plaid skirt from Forever 21 (gift from Ryne for Christmas), purple v-neck tee from Delias, a gray sweater from Deb Shops and a brown belt from Goodwill. If you notice, I'm wearing the owl locket that is in the banner for the page. It was a gift from my mom for Christmas. It's such a neat necklace - when you open the wings there's a clock! I like it so much I named my blog after it, hah.

Happy Hump Day,

Feeling Rosy

Last night we got around 5 more inches of snow, but I decided to wear a rose print, light weight dress from Forever 21 anyway because I'm sick of winter. Paired with black tights and black boots.

Also, I just purchased a new camera - the Nikon Coolpix L100! Super excited!

Flowers in the Dead of Winter

Starting out this week in a floral print dress from Goodwill because I'm sick of winter. Paired with a brown belt, white tights, a gray sweater, and gray socks. The gold heart necklace is from Goodwill, as well ($1.29)!

Happy Monday,

Casual Sunday

Just a casual Sunday here - homework, coffee, pizza, Superbowl. Put on a basic black cami, blue jeans, and a striped sweater from Forever 21. I found the necklace yesterday at Goodwill ($1.79) and the earrings were a gift from my mom for Christmas.

Happy Superbowl Sunday (even though I just watch it for commercials and for the social aspect)!

Western Saturday

My boyfriend and I had a relaxing day - went to the mall, the thrift store, and the grocery store. We had our little "photo shoot" in Target.

I wore a "western" print dress from Forever 21 with brown tights and my usual black boots. I got this dress for Thanksgiving because of the earthy look of it.

Some good news - I finally got my camera fixed! Hooray! I went to Best Buy today and looked at the cameras. I really want a good camera around the $200 range. Anyone have any advice?

Crazy Watermelon

Watch out, I have a crazy watermelon skirt on (at least that is how people have described it). I got the skirt a couple of years ago from Forever 21 and I have paired it with a simple black tee, black tights, and black riding boots (from Famous Footwear). The colors of the skirt really stand out against all the black. The earrings are colorful balls that my boyfriend's parents got for me. The necklace is actually quartz that my boyfriend dug up in a quartz mine and made a necklace out of.

Again, sorry about the quality of the pictures. I should be getting my camera fixed this weekend.

Happy Friday!

Thrifted Thursday: Mother Nature Inspired

Today my outfit was pretty much all from Goodwill. I actually went into Goodwill looking for a Halloween costume as Mother Nature. I was looking for a floral dress and came across this one and feel in love with it. The necklace and earrings, which complete my floral look, came from the thift store, as well.

This was super cheap, which is great for a college student as myself, while still being cute, feminine, and fun. The dress cost $7, the necklace and earrings were both $0.79 each, and the gray tights were $5.

I apologize about the quality of the pictures. My camera is broken right now, but I wanted to broadcast this outfit to show what great and cheap items there are at Goodwill. The pictures were taken by my phone. I hope to have my camera fixed soon!

Stay warm,
