Outfit: Acid Wash Skinny Jeans, Polka Dot Top, Blue Cardigan, & a Black Boater Hat

Happy Monday everyone! It's a new week, summer is officially over, and here I am pretending it feels like fall. I just really wanted to wear jeans! This outfit was comfortable enough for a few minutes out in the heat though. My upper stomach could feel the fresh air so I guess that was my air conditioning.

Do you guys like my new hat? I ordered it during a Nasty Gal sale. I figured it's black so I can get away with wearing it in the cooler months but it's straw so it'll be fine to wear in the heat too! Win win! I really love wearing hats but I forget to wear them. I have a decent amount of them too. It's a shame to let them sit there unworn so I've been trying to plan outfits around them.

I feel like I always talk about the weekend on here, but oh well. There's not a whole lot going on in my life right now! I had a good weekend spent mostly with Matt. We went to a Delta Spirit concert on Friday. It was fantastic. Saturday I went shoe shopping with my mom then watched football (which I don't particularly care about but it's just what you do down here.) Sunday afternoon was spent sitting on the back porch with Matt talking about everything. How about you? Did you do anything interesting over the weekend? 

Have a fantastic start to your week!

Outfit: Polka Dot Matching Set with Floral Wedges and a Straw Hat

You don't have to be a genius to figure out it's still super summery here in Georgia. I'm definitely looking forward to being able to wear more layers, but I tried hard to embrace the heat by wearing this outfit. I realized I hadn't featured my polka dot matching set without a cardigan yet, so I here it is! This is one of my absolute favorite purchases from Forever 21. It's so breezy and comfortable in this humid weather. This time I wore my cute straw hat with it and a pair of floral wedges I don't wear often enough.

So have you guys had a good week so far? The weekend is around the corner! Though weekends generally aren't much different than weekdays for me. I spend a lot of time researching every single day. (Places that may have jobs, jobs that are posted, how to make my applications better, improving the freelance work I'm doing, articles to share to maintain my social presence, and on and on and on.) I've been thinking maybe I need to actually take breaks from the computer, but I'm never caught up on everything I want to do. 

I keep wondering how long it's going to take for me to get my crap together and be a real adult. I want to get a job, contribute, and move away from Georgia. I could rant about the state of the job market and how frustrated I am with the "advice" I keep getting, but I'll spare you that since this is an outfit post. These posts aren't supposed to bring you down! Just look at my pretty outfit!

Have a great Friday!

August Favorites

Happy Wednesday everyone. It's that time again! I can't believe we're already half way through September but here are a few of my favorite outfits from last month. These looks span from very summery to what I would call fall outfits. Everyone looks super cute, as usual! I hope you get some inspiration and visit their blogs. Have a fantastic rest of your day!

Outfit: Green Floral Fit & Flare Dress with Nude Heels

Happy Monday everyone! I actually wore this outfit three weeks ago and am just now getting around to posting it. I bought this Jack by BB Dakota dress from Modcloth during one of their summer sales for a ridiculously cheap price. You don't see enough pretty green dresses and I love how green looks on me so I snagged it up! Plus look at how pretty this print is and the interesting cutout at the neckline. It'd be a great dress to wear to a spring wedding but I think I could easily style it casually.

For its debut I wore it to a local production of Mary Poppins. It was very hot outside so it was a day to not layer (which is about 70% of Georgia days in a year). I just paired my grad school graduation heels with it and a couple family rings I had in a drawer.

My new dress fits almost perfectly but there's a little "wonkiness" around the cutout. When I have problems with dresses they usually involve my boobs / short torso. I think the fabric might lay better if there wasn't as much boobage going on, but I'm not going to complain about that! It's good enough. 

Contrary to what I thought, I actually had a pretty busy weekend! I went to a music school fundraising event with big band music on Friday and celebrated an old friend's birthday on Saturday. The birthday celebration was pretty awesome. We ate real Korean BBQ with the stove in front of us and then went to karaoke where the birthday boy and I were the only ones actually singing. There was a rendition of "The Humpty Dance" along with songs from Grease and many Disney movies. It was a pretty solid evening of much needed fun!

What about you guys? Did you do anything fun this weekend? I feel like I ask you that every week but I'm always interested to hear if anything exciting happened for you!

Have a fantastic Monday!
