This #OOTD is actually from a few days ago, but I never got around to posting it with all the Third Degree craziness!

I definitely didn’t need a belt to keep these denim shorts up, but I think that it adds such a cute touch anyways. I’m obsessed with comfy-casual outfits, perfect for everything from going to class, to running errands, to grabbing lunch with a friend. I love the contrast of the black shirt and belt with the light-wash shorts!

The end of the semester is getting crazy, but I’m trying to keep posting as regularly as I can! Creating different looks and sharing them with y’all brings me so much joy and I love taking time out of my day to write these #OOTD entries.


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.

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.


My Own Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I personally love February 14, even if I’m single (mostly because that means I don’t need to buy gifts for anyone other than myself.) Today I took the phrase “treat yourself” very literally! I went to Torchy’s for lunch, something I rarely do anymore, and then came home and let myself have a nice, relaxing nap. It’s shaping up to be a good day all around!

I wasn’t planning on dressing festive today, but after spotting this pink skirt in the back of my closet I knew I couldn’t resist. For those of you who knew me 3-4 years ago, my statement necklace is probably bringing back some strong “retro Kayla” vibes. I haven’t worn one in a while, but today reminded me how cute they are!

I hope everyone has a great Valentine’s Day! Eat lots of candy for me, and check back soon to see my next #OOTD!
