Good as Gold

The weather yesterday was so good! Honestly, I feel like that was what I’ve been waiting for all winter. I know the nice temperature is short-lived, but that one 70 degree day put me in such a good mood. I even got to break out my new gold sandals, which I didn’t think I would get to wear for another week when I go on my spring break trip to Florida! I was so excited. This got me super looking forward to April and May when the weather is warm every day.

For my #OOTD yesterday, I paired my new kicks with some cropped skinny jeans and striped boyfriend tee, which kept me weather (and season) appropriate. I ran a bunch of errands yesterday, so I was super comfy as I drove around town for a few hours getting tasks done. @MotherNature, please stay a lil warmer so I can dress like this every day!

Bandana: Black Bandana – Hobby Lobby

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!

Dreaming of Spring (Break)

Even though today is the first day of March, in Norman the weather is still in full-on winter mode. We had an icy day that turned into an icy week, and today was the first day where driving around town seemed totally safe.

Desperate to forget the cold, I went shopping with my friend Jaycie for the spring break trip we’re both going on in two weeks. I got a ton of cute things, and I can’t wait to show y’all when the time comes!

Even though I was shopping for beach clothes, the current weather conditions dictated that I had to dress a little (or a lot) warmer than what we’ll experience in Saint Augustine. Wearing a lot of layers when you’re going different places and trying on clothes is kind of a pain, but I didn’t want to freeze, so I opted for a simple sweater/jeans/coat combo. I stuck with my Adidas sneakers so I wouldn’t have to deal with the hassle of taking boots on and off.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Sunglasses: Cateye Sunglasses – Target
Coat: Brown Coat (similar)
Sweater: White Turtleneck Sweater (similar)
Belt: Loop Belt – Target
Jeans: Mid-Rise Rockstar 24/7 Jeans – Old Navy
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

Hopefully the weather warms up in the next few weeks, because my shopping spree today has me so excited for spring and summer outfit possibilities! Keep checking back to see my next #OOTD!

Pre-K Days

Some days, I look back and appreciate the cute outfits my mom put me in when I was younger. I see what I was wearing then, and realize that it’s actually not that different from what I would wear today. And that got me thinking… what if I took some of my favorite outfits from when I was younger, and recreated them with an adult twist?

Today’s #OOTD is a recreation of my Pre-K school photo. I actually didn’t have to do any shopping for this one- I already had the shirt and overall dress in my closet. I borrowed the blue scrunchie from my roomie in place of the classic blue bow.

I had so much fun recreating this iconic look from my past, and I can’t wait to recreate more in the future! Keep checking back to see more then-and-now outfit modernizations!
