Somewhere Between Cyan and Cerulean

After a few weeks of excruciating final papers, projects, presentations, and exams, I’m finally home for the holidays! (Or at least, until Christmas Day.) I’m so glad to finally be back in Frisco: I’ve missed my family, friends, and dogs a whole bunch this semester. Another perk to being back in Frisco? Fresh #OOTD locations! I headed out early this morning to document today’s look before Frisco Square is hit by crowds of people out doing their Christmas shopping.

If you’ve been following me since my launch back in February, this look may seem slightly familiar. I styled this divine cashmere sweater similarly, but wanted to mix it up. This time, I opted out of the paperboy cap and went for a more flirty/romantic look, with my hair pulled back to make sure I revealed my “HELLO” earrings. I love taking different closet staples, like sweaters, and giving them a fresh new vibe just by mixing up the style of accessories!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Earrings: Hello Drop Earrings – Forever 21
Sweater: Cashmere Sweater – Valerie
Skirt: Leather Skirt (similar)
Boots: Presto Waterproof Knee-High Boot – BLONDO

I’m glad I got out and about early this morning- Christmas shopping in Frisco is crazy, and I still have a lot of people left on my list! I hope to take some more pictures around Frisco soon, so make sure you check back for more!

Hello, Sunshine

Yesterday was windy and in the 80s, but today is cold and in the 40s. It’s mid-April, so this sudden temperature drop is pretty annoying, but I also really appreciate getting one last chance to wear some of my colder-weather pieces. I love turtlenecks, and although I have some short-sleeve and no-sleeve ones that are more appropriate for spring and summer, I feel like a long-sleeved turtleneck should be reserved for colder weather.

So here’s today’s #OOTD! The yellow turtleneck is kinda cropped and a little hard to tuck into things, but I made it work with the black belt which helps keep it in place. I think the black belt helps tie in the black from my riding boots, too.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Turleneck: Yellow Turtleneck (similar) 
Belt: Loop Belt – Target
Jeans: Mid-Rise Rockstar Super Skinny Jeans – Old Navy
Boots: Ellie Waterproof Knee High Riding Boot – BLONDO

70 degree weather, please come back! I have more spring #OOTDs I want to share!

Where the Wind Comes Sweeping Down the Plains

Despite knowing that the Oklahoma wind was going to continue sweeping down the plains today, I made the unfortunate decision to wear a skirt to class today. The #OOTD was very cute, 10/10, but it was super inconvenient to have to hold my skirt down every time a particularly strong gust of wind came. Cold weather + skirts I can deal with, no problem. But the wind was another problem altogether!

Sweater: Black Sweater (similar)
Skirt: Houndstooth Skirt (similar)
Boots: Ellie Waterproof Knee High Riding Boot – BLONDO

Tomorrow I get to finish packing for my spring break trip, and I’m so excited! We leave really early Saturday morning, so the next time you hear from me, it’s likely I’ll be en route (or already in) Florida. Stay tuned for the details on our spring break shenanigans!

Leafy Greens

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.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Sunglasses: Cateye Sunglasses – Target
Jacket: Dark Green Jacket (similar)
Tank Top: Black Rib-Knit Tank – Old Navy 
Skirt: Women’s Velvet Skater Skirt – Urban Coco
Boots: Ellie Waterproof Knee High Riding Boot – BLONDO

Truthfully, I’m tired of my cold weather clothes, so I’m really hoping some warm weather rolls in soon. Check back soon to see my next #OOTD!
