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!

Outfit: Rust Orange Suedette Dress with Brown Leopard Print Tights

Rust Orange Faux Suede Bodycon Dress with Brown Leopard Tights and Dark Brown Ankle Boots

Happy Monday! I don't know why it's taken me so long to show you this outfit because I love how it turned out. This suedette dress is a pretty new Boohoo purchase from their petite line. I don't have anything else in my wardrobe in this rust orange shade so it was a necessary addition. It just about matches my hair! When I bought it I didn't realize it would lean quite so bodycon rather than shift style but that's okay. The faux suede material has a decent amount of stretch but it does cling to my tights.

For the debut of this super autumnal-hued dress, I paired it with some brown leopard print tights I've had in my drawer for quite a long time and some dark brown ankle boots. The gold dangly earrings were probably from a relative at some point. I really enjoyed how this outfit came together. So much that I'd probably wear all these pieces together again!

Happy MLK day to those of you in the US. I'm extremely happy to have the day off to bum around on the internet, read, and possibly play video games. I'll also be spending time with my dog. He's resting on the couch next to me right now but he'll probably enter crazy puppy mode in an hour or so. The joy of puppyhood.

Have a wonderful start to your week!
