Feeling Blue

This #OOTD was actually one of my favorite outfits during the summer of 2018. I had recently gotten a job at Old Navy (with a killer employee discount!) and was redoing my wardrobe. I hadn’t completely given up the preppy look, so I was still looking for ways to incorporate more classic pieces into my look. Hence, the statement necklace.

Blue has always been one of my favorite colors, and I love getting to combine different shades in this look. They coordinate, but don’t clash. I don’t wear a lot of monochromatic looks (besides the occasional all-black one) so I love getting to do something a little different from my day-to-day! (Although the shirt is striped, which seems to make up a good majority of my wardrobe sometimes.)

SHOP THE LOOK:

Top: Blue Boyfriend Pocket Tee (similar)
Necklace: Blue Statement Necklace (similar)
Shorts: Super High-Waisted Short Short – American Eagle
Shoes: Gold Wedge Sandals (similar)

Have you every undergone a complete style transformation? Mine was last summer, and I’m so grateful for every penny I spent tailoring my new wardrobe to fit my current taste. It’s what led me here!

Shades Stay On

I love my weekend days. I have my barre or pilates class in the morning to get my sweat on, but still have the rest of the day to be productive (or if I need the mental break, to do nothing.) I also love the weekend because this is when I get to be really creative with my wardrobe- I love fusing my professional wear with more casual pieces for a funky blend of #girlboss and easygoing.

When I get all dressed up, it’s an extra incentive to go out and get some errands done. (Or more likely, go shopping on a whim because I don’t actually have any pressing errands to run.) What’s the point of a cute outfit if the world doesn’t see it?

SHOP THE LOOK:

Sunglasses: Cateye Sunglasses – Target
Top: Drapey Tie-Neck Top – J. Crew
Skirt: Back To School Skirt – Altar’d State
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

Back to work tomorrow, but luckily my dress code won’t affect my wardrobe too much! Maybe I’ll incorporate this leopard top into a casual chic ensemble soon.

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.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Bandana: Black Bandana – Hobby Lobby
Shirt: Women’s Fitted Short Sleeve Crew T-Shirt – Target
Necklace: Scorpio Pendant Necklace – J. Crew
Pants: Leopard Skinny Ankle Pants – Target
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

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.
