Outfit: Brown Corduroy Shorts and a Ruffle Sleeve Fox Print Top

It's the fox print shirt again! When I said I can't stop wearing this shirt, it was the truth. The neutral-colored print makes it super versatile and I love the ruffled sleeve detail on it. I figured I'd break out one of my colorful beaded necklaces to play off the colors in the top's print. (I've been sorely neglecting my pile of beaded necklaces lately so I'm trying to remember to wear them!) Anyway, the rest of this outfit was a comfy combination of my brown corduroy shorts and cushy shoes.

Sorry for the weird posting schedule last week. Everything got out of whack with traveling on Monday and my birthday on Tuesday. I'm back to posting normally today! Hooray! I have a bit of catching up to do reading your blogs too. I'm excited to work on that this week.

Have a fantastic start to your week!

Birthday Outfit: Mushroom Print Dress, Red Tights, & Bronze Shoes

Happy Thursday everyone! I figured I should show you my birthday outfit since that was on Tuesday and therefore still relevant. I didn't really have a plan for a birthday outfit this year but I knew I wanted to wear one of my handmade items. This mushroom print dress hadn't been styled with tights yet so that's what I ended up throwing on. I enjoy the interesting mix of the olive green dress and red tights. It didn't feel like Christmas because of the addition of oranges and yellows in the print and the fact that it's a mushroom print. Mushrooms don't tend to convey images of holiday times.

But anyway, this turned out to be a very "me" look. It should be since it was my birthday! I wore a pair of cool red 80s earrings and my comfy bronze sandals since they apparently look good with everything I own. What do you think of my birthday look?

My birthday passed by quickly. It stormed nearly the entire day so I did the exact same things I normally do during the daytime: work, coffee, & dress myself. My family took me out to dinner at an Italian place where you get a free meal on your birthday. They bring you unlimited garlic and butter drenched rolls so I proceeded to stuff my face. Later I went bowling in my mushroom dress because why not? We had white cake with chocolate fudge frosting when I got home. All in all it was a satisfactory birthday. I'm glad I got out of the house that night because the daytime part was pretty boring as far as birthdays go!

Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday and the awesome people who gave me a card or gift. Now I'm impatiently awaiting my gift to myself which should be here in a couple days. Hint: It's the new Vice palette because I guess I need one each year now.

Anyway, I hope you're having a great week so far! As always, thanks for reading. I hope this next year of life will be better than the last!

A Stop in Metropolis, IL and a Comfy Traveling Outfit

Happy Tuesday everyone! It's time to show you some pictures from our stop in Metropolis, Illinois and the comfy outfit I wore driving that day. We finally decided to stop and see the giant Superman statue! We've driven by the town 1-2 times a year since I can remember and have never stopped so it was about time. It was a cute little town but the main draw was the colorful Superman stuff. It really stood out against the dreary, sprinkling weather. We only stayed a half hour but it was fun to take a few touristy pictures.

Looking back at these pictures I'm realizing how much I love how this outfit turned out. It was kind of thrown together, mixing comfortable items for a cozy drive. The combination of khaki green and yellow just works! Plus any outfit with my Star Trek shirt is an A+ in my book, despite it being kind of inappropriate in a town that pays homage to Superman.






Sorry about my lack of a post yesterday. We were driving back from Illinois and the weekend was way too busy for scheduling posts. It happens. Luckily I have plenty of outfits and pictures to share with you in these upcoming weeks! This is just the first set.

In other news today is my 24th birthday. I'm getting old! I have no real plans for today other than maybe Thai food and bowling. I expect the Facebook happy birthday messages to be fewer than last year since that's the trend the past few years. Maybe I'll get a few obligatory phone calls from relatives. Collecting some of my free birthday items from various stores / restaurants may be on the radar today and the rest of the week. Anybody else signed up for a bunch of store email lists and end up with coupons and free things around your birthday? It's one of my favorite parts of October! The Sephora birthday gift and free Starbucks are always highlights. 

I'm sure you'll hear all about today in another post though. Have a fantastic Tuesday!

Outfit: Floral Top, Olive Green Jacket, High Waisted Denim Shorts, and Clogs

Here's a bit of a casual outfit for you this Friday. I bought this olive green jacket and floral ruffled top from Forever 21 with a gift card a few weeks back. I figured I'd get plenty of use out of a jacket in this neutral shade of green. (Plus I can't get over this color lately!) I didn't particularly need to wear it this day but I wanted to layer a little bit. I kept the outfit warm weather appropriate by wearing these comfy high waisted shorts with bare legs.

My super pale legs are shining in these pictures. Sorry if I blinded you but I'm not ashamed!

In other news I have a wedding to attend today. It's been a very busy week and I haven't felt very rested but that's okay. My birthday is next week so maybe it'll be a good one. At the very least there'll be cake and that's always something to celebrate!

Have a fantastic weekend!
