Happy Monday everyone! This is yet another outfit I wore in Illinois in October. I really love this floral bell sleeved dress I picked up from Forever 21, so I keep trying to think of new ways to style it. Usually that means another color of tights or new shoes to switch it up but still show the sleeve detail. I know it'll be too cold to go without a jacket or sweater soon though! I've shown this dress with a jean jacket layered over top too which gives it a 90s vibe even though it covers the sleeves. Hooray remixing!
This look has a very monochromatic feel. I enjoy seeing others rock monochromatic outfits so I hope I'm doing it well too. I didn't realize just how much magenta/pink stood out in the print until I saw these pictures. The dark pink tights really bring out that shade and make the whole outfit look very pink! Anyway, I added my new clogs because they're delightfully retro just like my dress.

Here's an outtake shot for you. I was actually making faces at Matt and creating some interesting poses. This one is the monster pouncing pose. You're welcome.
Did you guys have a fun weekend? We went out to Terrapin Brewery to hang out with my sister on Friday. I spent much of Saturday deep cleaning the vanity in the bathroom my sister and I have shared (on and off) for the past 13 years. I came across so many Bath and Body Works products from around 1999-2002 it was ridiculous. They were lurking in the back of the cabinets and linen closet too. It was time for them to go. Way past time. There were also plenty of butterfly clips and hair things of that nature. (I stored away the non-broken ones.) So after throwing out bags of various old products and corroded metal hair clips I finally have space to store my makeup. It's no longer spread all over the counter! I can actually see my palettes. It's pretty amazing.
I also ran over 2 miles on Saturday which is the longest I've ever run without stopping in my life. I'm pretty proud. I'm one of those people who hate running but it's becoming more tolerable each time. It's something I've always been really bad at. In school I was the girl who could do 12 pull-ups but had crappy flexibility and struggled keeping up with my friends during "the mile." (Now that I think back, there was no way I was pacing myself properly while trying to keep up with my much longer-legged friends so we could chat.) Anyway, I'm trying to get in better cardiovascular shape so hopefully this is doing it. We'll see!
Have a great start to your week!
