Today was the first day back at school after break, and honestly, it was super rough. I’m not usually someone who needs coffee to get through the day (I mostly just drink it for the taste,) but after my 8:30 was over I knew I needed to hit up the closest Starbucks drive through and get my hands on a venti caramel cloud macchiato, STAT.
Since I felt like the walking dead when I got up this morning, I channeled that paranormal energy into a new addition to my closet that I got over break! Three of these items are new, actually- the turtleneck tee and the corduroy jacket that I got thrifting our first day, and the ouija board pin that I got in downtown St. Augustine.
Disclaimer: I’ve never actually played with an ouija board, but I thought that the pin was so quirky and fun that I couldn’t pass it up.
If you’re just coming back from break, I hope you feel less like a zombie than I did! As I found out after devouring my cloud macchiato in 5 minutes or less, there’s no amount of sleepy that espresso shots can’t fix.
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.
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!
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!
