Outfit: Fox Print Blouse, White Lace Skirt, and Black Platform Sandals

Happy Wednesday everyone! This outfit is a recent favorite so I hope you like it too. It's actually made up of a bunch of new clothes you haven't seen before! This fox print top is quickly becoming one of my go-to shirts because it matches almost everything. (It's also super cute.) I've already worn it three times.

My fox top was a lucky Twitter giveaway win from Boohoo. The skirt is new from Forever 21 because I wanted a white skirt and these fisherman style platform sandals were an epic sale find at Shoe Carnival. I actually bought these shoes in a bronze color too because they were 2 for $20. The fact that they're an incredibly comfortable Kork-Ease brand, Korks, convinced me I needed more than one pair. I could probably walk miles in these things, they're that comfy.

I have so much to do today it's kind of ridiculous. Why does this always happen before I go on a trip? Task #1 on my list is getting my flu shot! Then I have to figure out what outfits to pack which is always a dilemma. Then 50 billion other things. There's just not enough time in the day! 

Anyway, have a fantastic middle of your week. I hope it's been going great!

Outfit: Khaki Green Jeans, Floral Blouse, and Brown Wedge Sandals

Happy Monday everyone! I know some of you aren't particularly interested in more casual outfits like this, but I just got these green jeans and wanted to share them with you. I try really hard to style jeans in a non-boring way so I hope this doesn't bore you too much.

I love these new khaki green jeans though. I can't get enough of olive green shades lately so when these jeans fit so well they needed to become part of my wardrobe. I enjoy the zipper pocket detail and the seam down the back. For their first day out I paired them with a floral hand-me-down top and some brown wedge sandals. It was a great summer to fall transitional outfit. This outfit would be perfect for a warm spring day too though!

So what do you think about my new jeans? They should be really versatile. How would you style them for cooler weather? I keep thinking about wearing them with a flannel shirt and boots. And now I remember that I have red jeans to wear this fall too! Hooray for colorful jeans.

Did you have a good weekend? We went out and visited my sister in Athens and I also got to see an old friend while she was in town. I'll actually be in Illinois for the next couple weekends so maybe I'll get a taste of proper fall weather! I'm looking forward to it.

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

Remix: Brown Corduroy Shorts

I've had these brown high-waisted corduroy shorts since 2011 and have gotten tons of use out of them! You'd be amazed at how many different ways you can style shorts that have a heavy, cold weather material. They seem like a piece that should have no real place in a wardrobe, but they're actually perfect for fall in the south. The corduroy makes them cool weather appropriate but I can also wear them on the hot fall days we get down here!

These shorts are super comfortable and seem to be my go-to shorts for fall. I think they look equally cute with or without tights. I also have a pair of black corduroy shorts with a looser shape that I wear pretty often, but they look a lot better with tights than without.

The moral of this story is, don't write off pieces that seem like a weird mix of seasons. These shorts make me look like I'm in the fall season even if it's 85 degrees outside! Check out the ways I've styled these shorts on the blog and click the links underneath to see the full posts.

Outfit: Leopard Skater Skirt, Blue Graphic T-shirt, & Pink Converse High-Tops

It's probably clear by now that I can and will pair leopard print with nearly everything. I hadn't thought to wear my The Good Life t-shirt with leopard print yet, so here it is! This look gives me a high school vibe. I would wear graphic t-shirts and Converse a lot back then. This pair of high-tops is actually a pair from high school that I didn't wear that often which is why they're in such great condition! There are quite a few pairs of old Converse and Vans in my closet. I figured I should try to wear some of them more often since I've kept holding onto them. This pink pair matched the octopus on my shirt so wearing them together was meant to be.

What do you think about sneakers with dresses and skirts? I've been seeing people wear all kinds of outfits with various gym shoes. I like it! I think the pink Converse made this outfit feel kind of young. Now that I think about it, I've been wearing Keds with all sorts of outfits the past couple of years too. Now my Converse can have their moment to shine. Some of my other pairs are pretty ratty though. They don't see the light much unless I need to wear something that can get dirty!

How did your week go? I actually went out a few times this week! On Wednesday Matt took me on a date to Dave and Buster's which was super fun. We played a ton of games but gravitated toward the classic type like ski-ball and the basketball ones. There was a round of a Jurassic Park game and a Terminator one too. We kind of sucked at the shooting ones because we kept shooting our own guys. Oops? I'm now sore from playing the basketball game. I guess my arms aren't used to such vigorous activity anymore. Just another reason I need to start working out...

Then yesterday we headed up to Ellijay, Georgia which is in the north Georgia mountains. They have a ton of apple orchards but we didn't get to pick our own apples. We bought a bunch though! I'll try to show you a few pictures soon!

Have a fantastic weekend!
