Outfit: Concert Tee, Black Denim Mini Skirt, Pink Tights, and White Converse

Styling a black concert t-shirt with a denim mini skirt and colorful tights

Here I am wearing a concert t-shirt again. At this point I'm not sure I'll ever stop wearing them. Maybe when I'm 70 I won't wear them with bright pink tights and white wedge Converse, but really, who knows? Maybe we'll all be dressing like Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century by then. (I can only hope.) And if I really take a look at this outfit, all I need is a colorful vest and I may as well have come off the space station. They really liked vests in that movie. I guess they don't need sleeves when everything's climate controlled?

It is, however, not climate controlled outside in Atlanta. These pictures are from a couple months ago but it still hasn't reliably warmed up here yet. Also, my hair is now completely different since I had it chopped off again into an asymmetrical pixie a couple weeks ago. If you haven't seen it, check out my Instagram page!

P.S. I apologize for the wrinkled mini skirt. I guess all denim doesn't magically come out of the dryer wrinkle free, which is kind of a travesty.

Have an awesome weekend!

Outfit: Black Star Print Shirt, Corduroy Shorts, and Silver Oxfords

Silver Backseam Tights, Corduroy Shorts, Star Print Button Down

When will it be nice spring weather outside? It's been so gloomy and cold here in Georgia so I guess it's still relevant to show you a wintry almost all black outfit. I don't always wear a lot of color! I wore this for shopping and food with Matt at Ponce City Market a while back. The only new piece here is this black button down shirt with silver stars. I picked it up on sale because I figured it was just different enough while also being super wearable for work.

I styled my new top with a pair of faux backseam tights, old old high waisted corduroy shorts from college, and silver oxford shoes from Target. My little western-style belt was thrifted long ago.

I don't have anything super exciting to blog about here - just the odd outfit here and there, so thank you for sticking around. I've mostly been catching up on and enjoying reading lately, hanging out with my dog and husband, playing video games (Stardew Valley FTW) and working. The usual. What have you been up to?

I hope you have a great rest of your week! Be sure to follow along on Instagram if you want to see what I'm up to between blog posts.

Outfit: Heart Print Tights, Food Pins, Red Dress, and Loafer Heels

Peter Pan Collar Red Modcloth Dress with a Cropped Cardigan and Heart Print Tights

Happy almost Valentine's Day to you! In honor of the day of "wuv" I broke out a couple of old favorites to wear: this red peter pan collar dress from Modcloth and some heart print sweater tights from Forever 21. This dress, although cute, has seen better days. Something about the fabric makes it super easy to pill up so that's happening all over the place. It's sad because it's a really cute dress and comfortable too. I'm afraid it might need to be retired soon - but not until I try some remedies to reduce the pilling.

The highlight of this look is my super cool food-themed pins. I actually wore this last Friday on National Pizza Day, hence the pizza pin. Also it was Friday - hence the fries. The fries pin was lovingly bestowed upon me by a new coworker and is a very welcome addition to my increasing quirky pin collection.

My other accessories are thrifted. A belt thrifted long ago that I wear practically bi-weekly and a pair of loafer heels I got from Goodwill on my last trip up to Illinois. I know thrifting shoes is weird for some people but these were probably worn once and seemed like they'd be so versatile. I found out they're also really comfy which is always a big plus.

So what are you doing, if anything, for Valentine's Day? It's my first married one and we're staying in. We'll be making some tasty food together after work. My husband even brought home flowers already! He's pretty great.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by and be sure to follow along on Instagram and/or Twitter!

Outfit: Nude Lucite Heel Boots with a Floral Blouse and Maroon Skater Skirt

Maroon Skater Skirt, Lucite Heel Nude Boots, Floral Blouse

This was one of my favorite recent outfits. (I definitely wore this exact same thing more than once because I wanted to get a picture of it.) I'm not sure if it's because of all the matchy nude/maroon going on throughout the pieces or what, but I enjoyed it. I bought these Lucite heel nude boots for myself as a birthday gift back in October and this is probably my favorite way to wear them - with no tights and a cute skirt. I've found they work best that way since I haven't found a colored pair of tights that really looks right with them. If you have suggestions, please let me know! Anyway, I paired them with my much loved maroon skater skirt (probably one of the most-worn pieces in my wardrobe) and a floral long sleeved shirt.

SO how has your February been so far? Matt and I have been enjoying our quiet weekends at home and are looking forward to some fun outings we have planned this month. I have zero idea what we're doing for our first Valentine's Day as a married couple but we're likely staying in since it's on a Wednesday. Maybe some homemade dinner and a bottle of wine? I'm not opposed to that! What about you? Have any plans?

Have a great rest of your weekend and wonderful week ahead. Hope it's a nice one. And if you're not, be sure to follow along on Instagram and maybe Twitter too! <3 p="">

Outfit: Feather Print Navy Blue Romper in Napa

Dark Blue Feather Print Playsuit with Bronze Sandals and Pink Hair

Since it's been cold out there and I'm pretty over it, I figured it would be a good time to dive back to last summer and share an outfit I was too busy to share then. 

These pictures were taken during our brief stay in Napa last August which was a pretty awesome couple of days. The weather was fantastic and I was able to wear this feather print romper I picked up on Amazon for the first time. It was the perfect flowy silhouette for a summer day spent at wineries and bopping around town. The only negative about it is the wrap v-neck which definitely has to be pinned shut to avoid being the flasher about town.

Have you had any luck with shopping for clothes on Amazon? They have everything on there. I think my favorite fashion-related Amazon buy so far is a pair of brown fringe sandals I got for like $10 that are really comfortable. 

On a different note, how's your January going so far? It's usually a pretty dull month, I think. I don't do the usual dieting resolutions like so many others do but I do have a goal to read much more often and update this blog more regularly. I'm looking forward to attending lots of weddings and doing a little traveling this year too. Here's hoping it's a good year ahead of us!

Outfit: Vintage 70s Button Down and Black Zippered Mini Skirt

70s button down geometric blouse with black denim zip up skirt and platinum blonde hair

There are pieces in my wardrobe that have been with me way longer than I thought. I guess in my mind college isn't that far away. Then I actually count the years since I thrifted this 70s pointy collar button down. (Hint: It was at least 7 or 8 years ago. Yikes.) Even if it sits in my closet a lot, it makes an appearance ever so often - usually paired with red, blue, or black - to make my day better with its bold, but not too crazy, print and fabulous ultra wide pointy collar. 

This time I paired my much-loved button down with a black denim mini skirt, fleece-lined tights, and a pair of black lace-up oxford heels. Usually this shirt gets paired with some sort of solid skirt since it's so bold. Even if it's somewhat similar to past looks, it's almost like my outfits in general are a little different-looking when I'm blonde! The platinum blonde gives everything a little ice princess vibe. Especially when there's actually ice and snow on the ground.

Spssst: Scroll down for a cute dog picture.

These pictures were taken a little bit ago when we got some very unexpected snow here in Atlanta. I knew I had to take advantage of the snow and get some pictures with it! I included a picture of my doggo Riker here too because he's cute and also very stylish in his red dog coat, don't you think? 

Also, I wanted to wish you all a very happy New Year! Can you believe it's 2018?  The years fly by. 2017 was kind of a shit show for the world, but in general very good for me. Lots of travel, moving into our new place, friends, family, and getting married. I wish you a fantastic year ahead!
