Outfit: Green Corduroy Skirt, Leopard Top, and Heart Tights

Green Corduroy H&M Skirt, Heart Tights, Leopard Tee, Leather Jacket

If you're looking at these pictures and going, "hey those look almost a year old!" then you would be correct! For whatever reason this outfit from December never ended up on the blog (but a similar look did back in March.) My hair is almost this color again right now though! Full circle. I wanted it very similar to this color and length for my wedding in November so I'm glad.

I wish it was cold enough outside to wear tights, corduroy, and my leather jacket like it was in these pictures, but instead it's humid and rainy here in Georgia since it's still August. And so it shall remain until November. I really do like this combination of the dark green skirt with leopard print and tiny, almost-dots heart print. What do you think?

These pictures were taken in Illinois while cleaning out my Great Grandma's house. My sister and I were hanging around while our dad and grandpa were picking up some stuff. 

Unfortunately I don't have anything particularly interesting to tell you today. I'm staring at a very busy month of September ahead of me! Dragon Con is this weekend too so it'll be a busy weekend of geek fun. I'll be re-wearing a bunch of my costumes since the months we'd usually dedicate to costuming have been dedicated to wedding stuff. So I apologize in advance for no new outfits, but at least my Spider-Gwen will have real blonde hair and not a wig this year!

I hope you have a great Labor Day Weekend or regular weekend and happy Wednesday!

Outfit: Ruffled Blouse, Denim A-Line Skirt, and Red Pom Pom Flats

Ruffled Lace Up White Blouse with a Denim Button Down Skirt and Red Pom Pom Flats

It's beginning to feel like the wheel of hair colors around here. By the time I get a chance to take new outfit photos, my hair has changed color from the last post! Even these pictures from last month are outdated as far as my hair goes! Right this moment it's a shade of gray since it's about time to start phasing out the pink in time for the wedding (and I'd like it blonde for a couple Dragon Con costumes.) I've really enjoyed all the different colors over the past few months though. 

Now about the outfit: The red pom pom flats are clearly the star of the show here. I ordered them online at Forever 21 during a BOGO clearance sale since I couldn't resist the colorful pom poms. They worked perfectly with a go-to denim button down skirt and a white blouse. Those simple pieces let the shoes steal the spotlight in a good way. They also kept the denim skirt/white blouse combo from looking too country - a style that's just not my thing.

So did you get a chance to see the eclipse on Monday? I took the day off and headed a couple hours north of home to catch it in the path of totality. It was amazing! Definitely worth the trip. Those couple minutes of darkness were truly the highlight of the experience even though looking through the glasses was neat the rest of the time. Nothing compared to looking right at the sun with the moon completely blocking it. The light was super eerie and cool too. Just an overall awesome experience!

Anyway - let me know what's up in your lives and be sure to follow along on Instagram to keep up with me in between blog posts!

Review: Modern Map Art Athens Print

Dinosaur Target Cookie Jar on a Yellow Cabinet

Soon after I moved into my new apartment, Jennifer from Modern Map Art reached out to me about reviewing one of their super cool, printed-in-the-USA map prints. Particularly the Athens, GA print, which is a perfect addition to my Atlanta apartment when I'm missing my college town. I immediately was drawn to their black and white, minimalist map designs because they pair perfectly with just about any home decor. 

If you enjoy map prints, you should definitely check out Modern Map Art. It seems like they have just about every city you could think of! I was really impressed with how well they shipped the print in a tough cardboard tube and the shipping time was very speedy as well (and free for U.S. customers), considering they create the prints to-order. I honestly think I need to get an Atlanta one soon to pair with my Athens print! 

These would make awesome gifts for a wedding or birthday too. I put mine in a cheapo poster frame I bought on Amazon but you could definitely put it in a nice wooden frame.

These pictures show one of my favorite corners of my apartment - my coffee and tea corner! It's even better now that my map print is part of it! The yellow cabinet was a wedding shower gift from my grandparents and the dino cookie jar was from my cousin. And you can see my mess of coffee mugs. (Can you ever have too many coffee mugs?) 

Anyway, I'm happy to share the Modern Map Art website with you and thank you to Modern Map Art for the cute addition to my apartment!

I hope you're all having a great week so far! Feel free to follow along on Instagram this week to see my California adventure!
