Little Bit-o-Ruffles

Today was a blue and white day until I realized how chilly it was outside. I went back to my room to grab my cozy jacket, thinking I would take it off as it warmed up outside, but I liked the outfit with the jacket. Its loose-fitting nature works perfectly with flared jeans, and the ruffles add an even greater feminine touch to this look.

And Now, Presenting…

Little Black Dress (LBD) for my PR and Research Methods presentations today. I think they both went pretty well! On another note, a big thank you to my boyfriend for buying this necklace for me! And to New View for bringing simple black dresses and black stilettos into my life.

Most Wonderful Time

Hey, everybody!

It’s really cold today, so I decided to throw on a sweater dress and leggings. These leggings are so soft and comfy and I’ve been dying for a chance to wear them for months. Today’s the day! I’m looking a little seasonal, don’t you think?

Memorable

Hey, everyone!

I’m sorry that I’ve been away for so long. These past several weeks have been some of the busiest I’ve ever experienced. With my research methods class and newspaper editing underway, I’ll be back on top of things before you know it!

Last Monday I enjoyed a nice floral print skirt from Loft and a soft, comfy sweater from J. Crew. As I always say, “Matching is not matching,” so what could be better than this pair?

Busy Little Bee

This has been the busiest week of my life!  It’s finally Friday, which means it’s the weekend, but my work still doesn’t end here…. I need to write an article for the newspaper, finish putting the paper together, write an essay, and finish my post- and pre-lab assignments by the end of the day, because my family is coming to visit tomorrow!  Yay!  Lots to do!

Anyway, here’s what I wore this past Wednesday.  I went 100% professional and LOVED it.  I love each of these pieces so much, so wearing them all together was a blast.

Rain, Rain

After a long night of doing homework, I woke up for my 8am class only to find a cloudy, rainy day.  I thought about putting on some yoga pants, but then I decided that a pair of jeans wouldn’t take any extra effort (since one must wear clothes to class anyway). I threw some of these pieces together ten minutes before I was to go out the door, then perfected it after class.  It’s kind of girly-meets-punk, plus an umbrella.

Back to my Roots

I walked out the door to meet my boyfriend before class, as I usually do, and he greeted me with, “You’re representing your people today!”  I’m 1/16 Native American, so I see where he’s coming from, but I think he’s mostly just silly.  The cinched sleeves and lace detailing are what I love most about this top.  My shoes are pretty fun, too.  Simple and chic for a Monday morning!

Cute with a Chance of Photo Bomb

I didn’t make it to church this morning, but I did have a chance to wear something kind of nice this evening.  I took a simple sundress that I bought in ninth grade and paired it with a fall-colored sweater to bring it into the season.  The belt matched my shoes, so I went for it.  Nothing too fancy, but look at that rosy cheek!  That’s so lovable.  And so is the side of my poster that made it into the picture.  Dorm room life – What can I say?
