Work Outfit: Flamingo Print Bow Neck Top and Black Zipper Detail Pencil Skirt

Bodycon Pencil Skirt with Zipper Detailing, Mary Jane Heels, and Flamingo Print Top

It's been a while since I shared a work outfit with you but here's a pretty fun one featuring a flamingo print shirt. I was in the midst of preparing for our vacation in Las Vegas so the flamingos were reflective of that! This shirt from Shein isn't the best quality but the print is really cute and it looked good with my stretchy Forever 21 pencil skirt.

I always feel like bodycon stuff looks so much better on me in real life than in pictures but oh well! I'm posting these anyway. Some of that may stem from the fact that I don't have a classic hourglass shape. My hips are very narrow and today I learned I have a trending body part: hip dips! (Where there's an indentation where your hips meet your thighs.) Apparently that's something I'm supposed to reclaim and embrace. I'm pretty sure my sister and I just called them anti-hips but it is kind of nice to know it's a semi-normal thing! There'll be another weird body thing trending in a week so I guess I'll embrace this trend for now!

So how have you all been doing? My life has just been filled with wedding planning stuff! We picked our menu and talked to the venue last weekend. My first fitting for my wedding dress is this week too. Exciting times! We're still 4+ months out but it feels like it's all getting pretty close. 

Have a great rest of your week! And follow along on Instagram and my new Facebook page to see more.

Outfit: Yellow Top, Orange Red Floral Skirt, and Fringe Sandals

Orange Red Floral Skirt with Brown Wedge Sandals, a Yellow Shirt and Silvery Hair

I feel like I have a different hair color in every new post here! I've been having fun trying out new non-red hair colors these past few months. These pictures were taken right after I had my hair done so it was very freshly toned with purple toner to make it nice and cool-toned. I enjoyed the way it contrasted with my warm-toned outfit. Now my hair is pink though - so head over to Instagram to see that! 

Now on to the outfit: Most of these pieces have been seen on the blog before minus my new-ish brown fringe sandals I bought off of Amazon for $10. They're really comfortable too! I styled them with a top I got on clearance at Target and a handmade floral print pleated skirt.

I've been absent a little while since I was away on vacation in Las Vegas and have also been working a lot prior to that. Las Vegas was awesome and my bachelorette party was a ton of fun, including seeing Thunder From Down Under again, eating tapas, and hitting up a club. I already want to go back again even though I've been multiple times. It's just a fun place!

Now we're heading into the just-over-4-months mark until the wedding (how??) and have some final things to decide on, including planning some sort of honeymoon for the week after. I may need to brush up the wedding website a little bit, we need to pick food, decide on what to say/music to play for the ceremony, get my dress altered, etc. etc. So much to do!

Anyway, I hope you're all doing well and had a nice spring, since we're already heading into summertime! Happy Sunday!

Outfit: Elephant Print Bell Sleeved Dress with Raspberry Red Heels

Pink Hair, Boohoo Elephant Print Dress and Colorful Heels with a Black Lab Mix

Happy Wednesday to you! These pictures are from a little while back and were taken right after I had my hair done so it was freshly pink and delightful. Of course now it's purple and delightful, so that's good too.

This elephant print bell sleeved dress from Boohoo is one of my favorites because it's so incredibly comfortable. It isn't tight anywhere so it's great for days when I'm planning on having a food baby. Or just days when I don't want to think about what to wear. The black and white print makes it versatile and the awesomely large bell sleeves are really on trend.

I've worn this dress with tons of different shoes and tights, but this time I styled it with a new pair of raspberry red heels I got on clearance at Target. (Woohoo for Target clearance!) I'm pretty sure my hair makes this outfit though and my dog Riker is a pretty great addition too, if I do say so.

So how has your week been? No real news for me since my last post. Just work. Working this holiday weekend and waiting for our vacation in Las Vegas to get here. 

I hope you have  a fun week ahead, as usual feel free to follow along on Instagram to see what's up in my day-to-day life!

Outfit: I'm Back in Florals!

Black Floral Target Spaghetti Strap Dress with Pink Hair

Guess who's back? Back again? Jamie's back. Tell a friend.
Now you have that song stuck in your head. You're welcome. And also if you're reading this, thank you for sticking around or at least having my blog still in your blog feeder!

It's been a while but I'm certainly ready to get back into blogging mode now that I'm all moved into a new apartment and am mostly unpacked and settled. I no longer have to drive 3 hours a day but work is keeping me very busy right now so I haven't quite reclaimed my normal amount of free time.

Now moving on to some outfit talk!
Everything I'm wearing here except the earrings is relatively new. My shoes were a February Target sale buy and I've been wearing them the most out of any of my shoes lately. (Hooray for comfy shoes that go with everything!) The black floral dress was an impulse buy during my last Target trip. I saw the molded cups and my first thought was, a dress for 100 degree weather so I don't have to wear a bra! So I bought it. It's also plenty long enough on me to wear to work with a cardigan, so that's a plus. Not that I need to buy any more dresses probably ever...

I no joke have all my dresses filling almost the entirety of one of our closets. I have a problem and I admit it but I want them allllll! The problem is most of them need to be ironed after being in storage for 9 months and ironing is the worst. Someone else please complain about ironing with me. Or maybe I'm just really bad at it so that's why I don't like it. That's probably the case.

Anyway - life has just been going the past month. Some things that have happened:
  • Riker, our puppy, turned 2 and is finally getting used to the new apartment. All he wants is to constantly be at the apartment complex's dog park. 
  • I bought some plants/seeds for my porch garden and I've been enjoying taking care of that. 
  • The wedding countdown has reached the less than 6 months mark which is both exciting and scary. Scary because everything for the wedding (mostly the ceremony) isn't planned yet and neither is any semblance of the honeymoon. 
  • We're also heading to Vegas in a few weeks for bachelor/bachelorette friend/family/everyone fun. 

So there's a good amount of excitement ahead and I'm looking forward to that. We're both just so happy to have our own space again. Especially now that we finally got internet after living in our apartment for 3 weeks. Yeah, that was a treat.

I hope you've all been great. I think I keep up with most of my blog friends on Instagram, so if you're at all interested, you can keep up with me there too. Out of all the online spaces, I keep that one the most up-to-date lately. There's just not enough time in the day!!

Happy Monday!
