Outfit: Turquoise Leopard Turtleneck Dress and Black Block Heel Sandals

Mock Neck Teal Leopard Print Dress, Tassel Necklace, and Black Target Sandals

Long time, no blog! Did I say that last time? Well I finally have a new outfit to show you! I'm always trying, but sometimes failing, to fit blogging into my ridiculous schedule. Luckily there are some changes on the horizon that may make it easier to get back into blogging!

About this outfit: I picked up this super cool teal leopard mock turtleneck dress in the clearance racks at Forever 21. You really never know what you'll find in there. There was a more neutral-colored version too, but I went with a weird leopard color since I already have quite a few "normal" leopard print dresses. (Can you really ever have too many leopard dresses?)

My silver tassel necklace was a Christmas gift from my Mom because I desperately needed some statement necklaces for some of the plainer dresses I've been wearing to work. Sometimes I just want to throw on a t-shirt dress - with a cool necklace - and call it a day. It's rough getting up before the sun is up!

My black sandals are new from Target and you can still get them here. I'm loving the little block heels lately, but enjoy that shoes are quite as clunky as they were last time block heels were in style. I think it's something about the toe area being more narrow than square? I don't know but I like it!

I hope you've all been doing well. My news is that I think we finally found a new place to live! I don't want to jinx it, but if all goes well I'll be living back near work again and regaining almost 3 hours of my day that I currently spend commuting. Not to mention the whole having my own space again thing and being able to watch whatever I want on TV and having access to my whole wardrobe. Definitely looking forward to that!

In other news, how about Modcloth being bought by a Walmart subsidiary? I know it's kind of old news now but pretty disappointing. Just kind of sad to see a successful and unique female-owned business bought up. Interested to see how they change - though I've noticed a lot of branding changes the past few months prior to this announcement, did you?

Anyway, let me know what's up with your life and feel free to follow along on Instagram so you can see what's up with me on a daily basis! Happy Monday!

Outfit: Green Corduroy Skirt, Leopard Print Tee, and Olive Earrings

Green Corduroy Button Down Skirt, Leopard Print T-shirt, Black Tights, Black Lace Up Boots

Happy Saturday to you! I'm so excited to show you this outfit today - mostly because of my awesome olive earrings from IncredInedible. They were a gift from my sister because she knew they were on my Etsy wishlist for a very long time. If you've never checked out IncredInedible and like quirky jewelry, you definitely should! All the pieces look just like the food they're supposed to be. It's amazing how detailed every piece is, from donuts to baked potatoes. I'll definitely be making an order for more fun earrings soon!

The rest of the outfit is representative of my go-to outfits lately - comfy t-shirts and skirts paired with black tights and boots. My leopard print pocket t-shirt is from Boohoo and goes with almost everything. (Hooray for versatile comfy shirts!) The green corduroy skirt is from H&M and the stacked heel lace up boots were on clearance at Forever 21 for something like $14 so I couldn't pass them up. I have all black lace-up boots I bought at Target years ago, but they're on storage and slightly different than these ones so... I have a shoe problem. I have no real excuse.

So what's new with you? I've been doing the same old same lately. Still looking for a place to live closer to work and planning our wedding - which is 8 months from today! Everyone keeps telling me to enjoy this engaged time but honestly I don't have time to enjoy it with my commuting, working, booking wedding vendors, taking care of our hyper dog when I'm home, etc. Life is a little crazy right now. I'm hoping once we find a new place to live things will be a little better. Like, I may have time to blog more than once every couple weeks or read a book without falling asleep in 30 seconds. 

But really that's all that's going on with me. Once I publish this post I'm hopping right onto my Bloglovin' feed to read some of your blogs, which I really miss. I'm having a rare moment of free time right now so I'm going to take advantage of it!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Outfit: Dinosaur Print T-shirt, Black Ruffled Pinafore, and Silver Platforms

Ruffled Pinafore Dress from H&M, Dinosaur Print T-shirt, and Silver Chunky Heels

Long time no blog but I have a fun outfit to share with you today. Both the dinosaur print t-shirt and ruffled pinafore here are new purchases and I couldn't wait to wear them together. The two pieces should be pretty versatile and remixable too though. It was too hard to resist this dinosaur print t-shirt last time I was wandering through Forever 21. It's so perfect and just subtle enough to wear in a variety of situations. You might not even notice they're dinosaurs until you get up close!

The pinafore dress was an H&M clearance find. Just $10! Can't beat that. I'll be able to wear it year round with various tops underneath - and probably on its own too. The only negative thing is that it seems to wrinkle super easily. Oh well! 

My silver platform heels were the final touch to this outfit. They feel super Spice Girls-tastic to me and I'm definitely on board with that. They're so delightfully shiny too. I just need to figure out more outfits to pair them with!

I hope you're all having a fantastic weekend and have a nice week to look forward to. I'm sure my week will be more of the same old same. Driving ten thousand years to work and back, hanging out with our dog, etc. As for life, wedding planning is chugging along and I'm looking forward to booking a trip to Las Vegas for this summer. But other than that, nothing particularly thrilling is going on for me so let me know what you're up to! 

Have a fantastic Sunday!

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!
