All About Embroidery

I’ve been super into embroidery lately. I went through a phase a few years ago where I was staunchly against it, no matter what form it was in. (This was during the phase where boho fashion was super in, so the embroidery that came along with that trend just wasn’t really my style.) I’ve been super digging the embroidery I’ve seen recently, though, and when I found this skirt at Uptown Cheapskate I knew I had to snag it!

I wasn’t really sure how to wear it for a while (it actually hung on its hanger with its tag still on up until this morning,) but I love this #OOTD for work or play! My office is pretty frosty, so I made sure to pair it with a denim jacket. (Not pictured, but it looks super cute to tie the jacket around your waist if you get hot, too!) Now that I got the ball rolling, I’m excited to pair this skirt with more options in the future.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Jacket: Freeborn Denim Jacket – Target
Shirt: Slim-Fit Fine-Gauge Rib-Knit Tee – Old Navy
Skirt: Black Floral Mini Skirt (similar)
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

I’ve been stocking up on some cute new clothing items, so expect some new #OOTDs soon! Check back soon to see what I bought.

Bachelorette Vibes

Do y’all watch The Bachelorette? I’m loving this season already, and we’re only two episodes in! I rarely laugh out loud when I’m watching TV, but these past two episodes have had me cackling. They also provided some fashion inspiration, too!

On Hannah’s first one-on-one date, she chose to go four-wheeling in an all-white ensemble. Her white denim jacket ended up covered in mud (and ultimately ruined,) but it did remind me of my own! I just bought this one and The Bachelorette 15:02 definitely gave me enough inspiration to break it in.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Bandana: Black Bandana – Hobby Lobby
Jacket: Freeborn Denim Jacket – Target
Top: Short Sleeve Crew T-Shirt – Target
Belt: Loop Belt – Target
Jeans: Mid-Rise Rockstar Super Skinny Jeans – Old Navy
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

I can’t wait for next week’s Bachelorette episode! Hopefully Hannah Beast’s outfits give me some more #OOTD ingenuity. (If you know how the season ends, no spoilers please!)

Born With Good Jeans

Before I get into today’s #OOTD details, I just wanted to share some huge personal news I got on Friday! Back in February, I applied to be a part of Gaylord’s 4+1 Program, where, if accepted, I would be able to start graduate-level course work for my senior year, finish up my bachelor’s degree (in May 2020,) and then graduate with my master’s degree in May 2021. As you may have guessed, on Friday I got the news that I had been accepted and will be starting in the 4+1 Program this fall! I am elated, to say the least, and am so ready to start with my graduate courses in August. Okay, now that I got that out of the way, on to today’s #OOTD…

I had a concert band “dress rehearsal” (AKA just an extra weekend rehearsal) today, so I wanted to make sure I would be comfy when I was sitting and playing for two hours. I opted for a traditional-denim-on-black-denim ensemble. It’s a similar vibe to an outfit I wore a few weeks ago, although that one was paired with a black dress instead!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Bandana: Leopard Print Bandana – Hobby Lobby
Jacket: Cropped Denim Jacket (similar)
Tank Top: Black Rib-Knit Tank – Old Navy 
Belt: Loop Belt – Target
Jeans: Mid-Rise Rockstar Super Skinny Jeans – Old Navy
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

Anyways, I’m still kind of in shock over my grad school acceptance! I knew I had the grades and got great rec letters, but it’s still so cool to see my hard work pay off so tangibly. If you’re interested in what I’m doing as a public relations student, you can check out my professional portfolio online at www.kaylamccullough.com.

I’ll be back with a new #OOTD soon, so check back for that!

Black and Blue

Today’s #OOTD is actually from yesterday, but I’m posting it anyways because I liked it so much!

Yesterday I followed standard Friday protocol: wake up on my own time, get in a morning workout, and go out to lunch with a friend. Having no classes on Fridays this semester is seriously a blessing, and I’m thankful for it every week. I like to take the time to pick out a cute outfit, even if I only leave the house once that day.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Jacket: Cropped Denim Jacket (similar)
Dress: Slub-Knit Tee Dress – Old Navy

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I’ll have a new #OOTD up soon, so keep checking back.
