Oklahoma decided it was going to have another round of ice come through last night, which I found extremely rude since I actually had things I needed to go out and do today. Over the past few weeks my ice-driving skills have improved tremendously, but I’ll still be glad when I can leave my apartment and not worry about slipping and falling down a flight of stairs.
My big errand for the day was grocery shopping, which I like to do on Sunday mornings after I work out. I buy a lot of perishable food items, so shopping once a week is essential. And since spring break is coming up in just under two weeks, I bought even more fresh fruits and veggies than usual to encourage me to eat healthier up until the trip. (A. because I want my body to be as spring break ready as possible, and B. because I know I’m going to eat a lot of great food on that trip. Photos to come!)
Despite the weather, I chose an #OOTD that included a skirt and tank top. Dress for the weather you want, not the weather you have. Right? I thought adding suede boots and a jacket made it more weather-appropriate, if only slightly.
In the cruelest twist of fate, OU cancelled class because of severe weather after I was already done for the day. Despite having to go to class when I was hoping for a full day of school closure, I did get to try out this cute outfit, so it wasn’t all bad.
I’m a big fan of berets and French style in general, and I thought this was a good combination for a potentially snowy day. (Once school was cancelled, I promptly drove home and traded it for pajamas, though. I’m human.)
Good morning! I’m back with another #OOTD, this one from yesterday!
I actually threw this look together last-minute (no, seriously) because the outfit I wanted to wear was definitely not rainy weather appropriate (think: cropped jean jacket and a tank top.) So I had to improvise! And I’m glad I did, because I love the way this look turned out.
You’re probably thinking, “Wait! This isn’t a regular mirror selfie!” And you’re right- I got creative today. I wanted to mix things up, and set up an elaborate way to prop up my phone and take a picture with a self timer. I like the result a lot!
Today’s #OOTD features my favorite hat I own, a velvet paperboy cap I got while on vacation in Miami! I had been wanting a hat like this for a while and was thrilled when I found it on sale at Zara. I think it really gives this outfit a funky vibe!
Ahh! I can’t believe I actually did it! I’ve been thinking of making a blog to house all of my #OOTDs for a while but I don’t know if I ever seriously expected it to come to fruition. I am so excited!
And now, I’m giving the people what they want: my OOTD!
Maybe one day I’ll have a better way to share my outfits than a traditional mirror selfie. But for now, it gets the job done.
Anna Wintour has famously said that all-black outfits are boring, but I find that couldn’t be further from the truth. I love having an all-black outfit underneath my brown winter coat- I think that the head-to-toe black fits nicely under the brown, but also can stand on its own.
Thanks for reading my first ever post on Selfies & OOTDs! Check back soon to see what I’ll be wearing next.
