A Jeanie Outfit: Black Romper with Leopard Print Ankle Boots

Black Romper with Sheer Long Sleeves worn with Leopard Print Chelsea Boots

It's been a long time since I've been able to show you a Jeanie outfit. I don't get to see my sister as often now that I live in Atlanta but I assure you she still wears cool clothes. We spent the holidays together so I had to snap some pictures of this ultra fantastic outfit she wore. I feel like a look like this is very versatile. So versatile it was perfect for Christmas time dinner! Though it could even be worn in the summer time.

Jeanie's leopard print boots are my new favorite and I wish I had a pair like them. I probably don't need leopard print boots but oh well. They're awesome. Her romper also is really flattering with a sheer back and sheer sleeves. I'm a fan. I think I need to convince Jeanie to let me take pictures of her outfits more often, don't you?

So did you guys have a good weekend? We did obligatory grocery shopping and dog food shopping on Saturday before relaxing the entire day yesterday along with watching the Super Bowl. I was actually able to play some video games and lounge in my pajamas all day without judgement. It was delightful. But now we're back to real life this Monday! I'm already looking forward to next weekend since I have a three day weekend and some fun pre-Valentine's Day plans out in Athens with Matt and my sister and her boyfriend. Should be a good time.

Anyway, I hope you have a great start to your week!

15 Novelty Pins I Need

I've always enjoyed sorting through vintage pins at the thrift store and wholeheartedly think it's time pins as a jewelry type make a comeback. Honestly, I've been wearing my pins - or brooches as you fancier people may say - more than my necklaces the past few months. It's pretty evident to me that pins are on their way back "in" when I see all these fun, geeky, colorful ones pop up all over the internet. Naturally, I want them all. I think it'd be good to have some quirkier pop culture pins among my pretty vintage ones don't you think? 

I put together a list of some of my favorites I've come across in the past couple months. I don't own any of these yet BUT I did buy the Slurm one (Futurama represent!) and it's on its way to me as we speak. There are only a few left of those so if you're a Futurama fan you might want to check that out. The Scully pin is sold out right now too which is a shame because I'd be wearing it every Monday while these new episodes air.

Are you on board with the silly yet awesome novelty brooch trend or do you stick to the classics? Which of these is your favorite?

Outfit: Maroon Skater Skirt, Polka Dot Tights, and a Silver Sweater

Silver Sweater, Leather Jacket, Maroon Skater Skirt, and Polka Dot Tights in Vegas

We've come to the end of the road with my Las Vegas outfit posts. I guess there was only one before this but still. I brought my trusty maroon skater skirt with me on vacation because it looks great with pretty much anything. It was still the festive season so I paired it with a subtly sparkly silver sweater. The polka dot tights are another favorite that look good with nearly anything. I especially love how black looks paired with my maroon skirt too. That's a color scheme I'm sure you see me wear relatively often. 

I really like this outfit, but then again it's hard not to like an outfit made up of favorite pieces and a pair of very comfy yet super cute shoes. It certainly was a great outfit choice for wandering down the Las Vegas Strip - comfy and stylish at the same time! Sometimes I like to save new pieces to wear for the first time over vacation, but other times I pack up only things I know I definitely enjoy wearing (and are comfortable). How about you?

I hope you're having a great week so far. It's been dragging on for me and I'll be glad when it's the weekend. I'm looking forward to the next episode of the new X-Files season next Monday though. Are any of you catching the new episodes? I was so pumped when they used the original intro. Geeky times galore.

Anyway, happy Thursday!

Outfit: Black Leather Jacket, Floral Flippy Dress, and Bright Yellow Tights

Faux Leather Jacket, Purple Floral Dress, Yellow Tights, and Black Wedge Boots

Oh how I love this purple-y floral bell sleeved (which you can't see, but you can see the bell sleeved goodness here) dress. Unfortunately I'm pretty sure the length shrunk somehow. No, I have not grown. I think I'm far past that point in life. I'm actually super sad about how short the dress is right now. Does it seem shorter to you or am I making it up? It can't just be that it's cinched in with a jacket either. I've been comparing these photos with the ones where I wore this dress with a jean jacket. Ugh. It was just so perfect and not so short that I couldn't wear it to work. Now I'm thinking it's way shorter than it used to be. I air dried it though, so how can this even happen? Maybe it's in my head but my butt did seem to be much more "out" while walking around Las Vegas in it last month...

Anyway, these are photos of one of my Las Vegas outfits from our trip in December. It was quite cold while we were there and I wish I'd had a heavier jacket but this black faux leather one is what I had. I threw it on over my floral dress, added bright yellow tights, and my comfy black wedge boots. My Harrah's card on a lanyard is my "beautiful" accessory in this look too. I apologize.

I hope you're all having a great weekend so far. We're kind of iced in for the morning because Atlanta got a little bit of snow and ice last night into this morning. There are real live flurries happening as I type this! Unfortunately the roads suck because we're in the south and don't have the equipment to fully prepare for this kind of weather. Our power went out last night too but fortunately it's back on today. I plan on lazing about the apartment and enjoying a relaxing day.

Happy Saturday!
