Outfit: Metallic Leopard Print Skirt, Faux Choker Top, and Red Wedges

Metallic Leopard Print Skirt with Opaque Black Tights, Red Wedge Heels, and a Faux Choker Top

Just in time for Valentine's Day, here's a very Valentine-ish outfit to share with you! Because leopard print and red is automatically a Valentine's Day look in my mind. I actually wore this at Matt and my engagement party earlier this month so it's fitting to share it now. I had no idea what to wear that day and just threw this together a couple hours before. Most of it is new from a little bit of a shopping spree I had while looking for outfits for our engagement pictures. 

This choker top from H&M is pretty trendy right now but I picked it up because it's both trendy and would match with a lot of different bottoms. The metallic leopard skirt was originally meant to be for our engagement pictures but I decided to go with another outfit, so this was its debut instead. Can you really ever have too many leopard print skirts? I say no. And my bright red wedges were a clearance find from over the summer. All a grand combination for a Valentine look!

I always use holidays as an excuse to wear themed outfits. I hope this look gives you a little outfit inspiration for tomorrow if you don't know what you're wearing. If not, I have another post with 15 Valentine's Day outfit ideas from last year that you can check out!

Do you have any good plans for tomorrow? Even if those plans are Netflix and chocolate, I think those are good plans. I'll just be cooking dinner with Matt and hopefully enjoying a nice beer. Should be a nice break in routine for what would otherwise be a normal boring Tuesday.

I hope you have a fantastic rest of your week and happy Valentine's Day!

Outfit: Embroidered Unicorn Shirt, Gray Pleated Skirt, and Silver Shoes

Embroidered F21 Unicorn Shirt, Pleated Jersey Knit Skirt, Silver Shoes, and Purple Socks

Happy Thursday everyone! I'm here with a new outfit to hopefully brighten the end of your week since there's a unicorn on my shirt. Yes, I'm a grown adult with a unicorn shirt but nobody has to know I'm a grown adult, right? I was out shopping for a possible engagement picture outfit and came across this embroidered unicorn shirt and couldn't let it go. Actually my sister convinced me I needed it and then I found a gray pleated skirt that exactly matched the shirt's gray ringed collar and sleeves. So it was fate that I had to buy both and wear them together.

It was a weirdly warm January day when I wore this, so I styled this outfit without tights and instead went with some purple socks (to play off the unicorn, of course) and a pair of silver oxfords. It was all very comfy and a little spring-y, which is good in my book because I'm actually kind of ready for spring weather. Probably the fact that most of my winter clothes are in storage still...

I'm really looking forward to this weekend, how about you? Matt and I are having an engagement party and it'll be fun to see a bunch of people we rarely get to see. We also already got our engagement pictures back that we took last weekend! You can see some on Instagram if you head over there. Let me know what you think and have a fantastic rest of your week!

Thanks for stopping by!

2016 Outfits Recap: Favorites from July through December

It's time to finish up my 2016 outfit recap with some of my favorite from the last half of last year! Looking at these, I realize I was wearing a crap load of skater skirts, and for the repetition, I apologize. My wardrobe is largely in storage and the separates are a way to keep from wearing the same thing over and over, which is why you saw fewer dresses toward the end of last year. You'll also see my transition from bright red hair to light blonde in these photos. As always, click the numbers underneath the pictures to see the full post!





Thirteen | Fourteen | Fifteen

The first half of 2016 was much better - on the whole - than the second half. Especially with regard to the blog. I apologize if I've bored you a little with my slow-down in posts and similar silhouettes, but that's what I've been wearing lately and my free time is at an all-time low. If you read my first half of 2016 recap post, you read about the whole apartment debacle so that really changed the last half of the year for us. I now commute 3+ hours a day because Atlanta traffic is awful and we haven't found a decently-priced apartment with the things we need that's not in a rough area. They get snatched up quickly.

The best part of last year was definitely our trip to Europe though! We were gone half of October and during my birthday. We got engaged over there in Edinburgh too, which was the most exciting thing to happen in the year, of course. I'm so excited to get married to Matt this year!

So the moral of this story is 2017 better be incredible compared to last year. I'm sure life will get much better when I'm not spending 3+ hours a day of my non-working, non-sleeping time in a car and Matt and I have a place of our own again. And when the wedding vendors are all picked out... There's just a lot going on. I'm looking forward to things being good again.

Anyway, I hope you're having a great start to your week! Happy Tuesday!

2016 Outfits Recap: Favorites from January through June

Happy Sunday to you and welcome to part one of my 2016 outfit recap! I enjoy doing these recap posts each year because I get to look back on what I wore and see how things have changed throughout the year. I hope enjoy or at least don't mind taking a look back at some of my favorite things I've worn in the past year! As always, as you scroll through you can see the full post by clicking on the number underneath.







Nineteen | Twenty | Twenty-one

Honestly, looking back, I'm just amazed at the amount of outfits I was able to post last year and it's hard remembering how good things were in the first half of 2016. We were in our own place with our dog and work was going well for both of us. In May, we'd found a bigger and cheaper place to live and were planning on moving down the street to enjoy that. Unfortunately, the owners of the place screwed us the day before we were supposed to move in and we were suddenly out of a place to live. (You can read all about it in this post.) We moved temporarily back out to the suburbs into our parents' houses, stuffing all our things into a huge storage unit and dragging the dog back to live in between houses too. So during these pictures, life was going well. Memories...

Also since most of my wardrobe is in the storage unit, I miss a lot of these clothes! Oh well. 
So, let me know: which one is your favorite outfit post from 2016?
