It feels so great to be back! For the past 2 weeks, I’ve been trying to get over a bad case of bronchitis that seriously knocked me off my feet. I missed a week of work, since I could barely do more than browse Pinterest and binge Gossip Girl in bed. But after 14 days of sickness and 12 different medications, I finally found something that worked and I’m going to be back at my internship today.
Since this is my first time out of pajamas in a while, I knew I wanted to dress comfortably. (I have had ample time to brainstorm new outfit ideas while stuck in bed, but jumping straight from flannel to a denim mini skirt felt like a lot.) After some brief deliberation while standing in my closet this morning, I settled on a soft knit t-shirt dress and leggings for today’s #OOTD. Comfy and cute!
I only have 2 weeks left here in Austin, and I’m ready to finish up showing y’all the city before I move back to Norman in August. I’m glad my sickness will soon be a distant memory, because I still have some things I want to do!
I love wardrobe basics. While I also appreciate trendier items to jazz up my closet a bit, there’s just something so classic and timeless about a items that will never go out of style.
For this #OOTD, I made an outfit made completely out of wardrobe basics. A piece that has served me especially well is my denim shirt. Since it’s always a classic piece, I hadn’t realized how long I had had it in my closet. If you had asked me, I probably would have guessed 3 years. Well, I recently found a photo of me wearing it- from 2013! The moral of this story is that when you buy quality pieces, they’ll stick with you for years.
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!
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.

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