Queen of Army Green

I’m traveling today, so today’s #OOTD post is actually yesterday’s! It was a little chilly in the morning but I knew it would warm up later in the day, so I wanted something with layers that could transition easily from morning to afternoon.

I love my black dress (I’ve featured several outfits with it before,) but something I don’t like about it as much is the lack of definition it gives me at the waist. By tying a jacket around, it allows me to cinch the fabric in at the waist area and give my look the definition it needs!

Bandana: Black Bandana – Hobby Lobby
Jacket: Army Green Jacket (similar)
Dress: Slub-Knit Tee Dress – Old Navy
Shoes:Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

I’m in my layover in Houston right now, headed to Corpus Christi for Easter weekend! I am so excited to see my family (and one of my dogs) and spend time with them through Sunday. I can’t wait to share our Saturday beach adventures with y’all, so check back for those!

Strait-Laced

I’ve been wanting to try out this look for a while, but haven’t had a chance until today! It was still a little windy, but since rain and a cold front are coming through tomorrow I figured it was now or never for this #OOTD. I’m so glad I took the chance!

By now, you all know what a huge fan I am of turtleneck and mock-neck shirts. I found this forest green one while thrift shopping in St. Augustine and was so excited to find a mock-neck item that I continue to wear into spring and summer (most of my other turtleneck items are long-sleeved or sweaters.)

SHOP THE LOOK:

Scrunchie: Black Scrunchie – Walmart
Top: Mock-neck Tank Top (similar)
Skirt: Lace-Up Skirt (similar) 
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

Overall, this outfit was a little chilly with the wind, but otherwise perfect! Can’t wait to pair this mock-neck tank with some other spring clothing items soon. Stay tuned!

A Big Re-Leaf

Yesterday, I had a 10 page research paper due for my US-Latin American Relations class. I usually don’t mind writing papers, especially when I get to choose the subject matter, but for some reason I put that monstrosity of a research paper off until 10 hours before the due date. Thanks to some study tunes, the focused vibe of the Bizzell Memorial Library, and lots of coffee, I got it done with an hour and a half to spare. It was a real relief, for sure.

Since I was still feeling strained from all the brain exertion I put forth yesterday, I made sure to keep to a more laid-back #OOTD today to help me recover. It was a little toasty in my jeans, but comfy nonetheless!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Sunglasses: Cateye Sunglasses – Target
Shirt: V-Neck Tee (similar)
Belt: Loop Belt – Target
Jeans: Mid-Rise Rockstar 24/7 Jeans – Old Navy
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

The weather is getting to be in the 80s consistently and I am so excited! It’s about time to pack up my winter gear and bring the summer wardrobe back out full-time. Keep checking back to see my next #OOTD!

Flight of the Bumblebee

It was marginally warmer today, so I actually got to wear something cute instead of just dressing to stay warm! Yesterday morning Norman was blessed with wind chills of -6, so I had to temporarily forego fashion and focus on avoiding frostbite. Luckily, today was back in the 40s so an average amount of layers was appropriate!

I love my overalls because of how diverse they are. I’ve shown an outfit with them on the blog before, but this one has a completely different vibe just from the color and style of the shirt. I’m frequently told I look like a minion or a bumblebee when I wear this yellow/black combination!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Turleneck: Yellow Turtleneck (similar) 
Overalls: Skinny Denim Overalls – Macy’s
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

I’m excited to share my next #OOTD with y’all soon, so keep checking back!

Dreaming of Spring (Break)

Even though today is the first day of March, in Norman the weather is still in full-on winter mode. We had an icy day that turned into an icy week, and today was the first day where driving around town seemed totally safe.

Desperate to forget the cold, I went shopping with my friend Jaycie for the spring break trip we’re both going on in two weeks. I got a ton of cute things, and I can’t wait to show y’all when the time comes!

Even though I was shopping for beach clothes, the current weather conditions dictated that I had to dress a little (or a lot) warmer than what we’ll experience in Saint Augustine. Wearing a lot of layers when you’re going different places and trying on clothes is kind of a pain, but I didn’t want to freeze, so I opted for a simple sweater/jeans/coat combo. I stuck with my Adidas sneakers so I wouldn’t have to deal with the hassle of taking boots on and off.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Sunglasses: Cateye Sunglasses – Target
Coat: Brown Coat (similar)
Sweater: White Turtleneck Sweater (similar)
Belt: Loop Belt – Target
Jeans: Mid-Rise Rockstar 24/7 Jeans – Old Navy
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

Hopefully the weather warms up in the next few weeks, because my shopping spree today has me so excited for spring and summer outfit possibilities! Keep checking back to see my next #OOTD!

A Leopard Can’t Change Its Spots

As per usual, I completely misread the weather forecast and dressed totally wrong for what the day would have in store. This morning started out as 50 degrees, so I figured a short sleeve shirt would be fine, as long as it continued to warm up throughout the day. But by the time I got out of my 10:30 class, it was 40 degrees, and still dropping. I really regretted not wearing a black sweater instead, but it was such a cute outfit that really it was all okay!

I got these leopard pants while out shopping with my mom last Thursday. They’re meant to be dress pants for work, but I thought they were playful enough that I could wear them day-to-day if I rolled up the hem and cropped them a bit.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Bandana: Black Bandana – Hobby Lobby
Shirt: Women’s Fitted Short Sleeve Crew T-Shirt – Target
Necklace: Scorpio Pendant Necklace – J. Crew
Pants: Leopard Skinny Ankle Pants – Target
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

Despite completely misjudging the weather, I loved this outfit and will definitely be keeping it in my rotation! Check back soon for my next #OOTD.

It’s Always Sunny

Yesterday was literally such a good day! My mom came into town to watch my concert band concert and we were able to spend the afternoon together beforehand. I don’t get to go home much in the spring so I am so thankful when my parents take time out of their day to come to me.

I knew we would be doing some clothes shopping so I wanted to wear something that would be easy to get on and off as we went to different stores. The weather also got up to 50 degrees for the first time in a few days, so I wanted to give my legs a breather and not confine them to jeans for a day. This shirt is kinda short so I wasn’t sure how well it would stay tucked in my skirt, but it did really well and I ended up loving how this look turned out!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Sunglasses: Cateye Sunglasses – Target
Earrings: Smooth Metal C Hoop Earrings – Target
Turleneck: Yellow Turtleneck (similar)
Skirt: Lace-Up Skirt (similar)

I hope everyone has a great day, and keep checking in to see my next #OOTD!

Overall, A Good Day

Today is shaping up to be a pretty good day. Even though we didn’t get another day off from school due to the ice storm, it is supposed to be a little warmer today, which is always welcome. Tonight is Bachelor Night for me and my friends (if you’ve already seen week 7, no spoilers please!) and that alone makes Wednesday one of my favorite days of the week. No matter how my day is going, there is nothing that boxed wine and Colton Underwood can’t fix.

I got these overalls for Christmas and I’m obsessed with them. I love them paired with a sweater or turtleneck, but I’m excited for consistently warmer weather so I can try them out with some t-shirts as well.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Sweater: Seafoam Green Sweater (similar)
Overalls: Skinny Denim Overalls – Macy’s

I hope everyone has a good day, like mine looks like it will be!

Jenny From The Block

Hey everyone! It’s time for another #OOTD post!

Today I’m heavily feeling my braids, as you can see. I thought they really pulled this outfit together (I usually wear my hair down.) I love the gold accents from my earrings and my belt and that the whole outfit is so delightfully neutral while also sporting an extremely bold print. (I also was told that I gave off Jenny from the Block vibes, which inspired the title.)

Shop the look:

Hat: Newsboy Cap (similar)
Earrings: Smooth Metal C Hoop Earrings – Target
Turleneck: Leopard Turtleneck (similar)
Jeans: Mid-Rise Rockstar 24/7 Jeans – Old Navy
Belt: Loop Belt – Target

Red Velvet

Today’s #OOTD is really from yesterday, but I’m going to share it anyways!

Yesterday, I was heading to my sorority’s sisterhood retreat so I wanted to make sure I was comfy for the 2 hour car ride.

I love this red velvet sweatshirt because it’s so soft and cozy. I got it from Uptown Cheapskate and I think it’s meant to be a kid’s sweatshirt because it’s a size XL. (If it is actually adult sized, then frankly, I’m offended.) The black belt and jeans combo is a staple in my wardrobe that you’ll probably see pretty often. I wore my favorite black sunglasses on the ride down, too.

Shop the look:

Sweatshirt: Velvet Top – Daytrip
Jeans: Mid-Rise Rockstar 24/7 Jeans – Old Navy
Belt: Loop Belt – Target
Sunglasses: Cateye Sunglasses – Target
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

Thanks for reading! Check back soon for my next #OOTD.
