Pretty in Pink

I’ve been hurtin’ for an excuse to wear this skirt again. I wore it back in February for Valentine’s Day, and honestly don’t think I’ve worn it since. It doesn’t go with a lot of the other things in my closet, so I have to be very intentional when deciding to add it to the #OOTD. I love the way this look turned out, though!

Another piece of this ensemble that I have to be very deliberate when choosing is the corduroy jacket. Since it’s A) summer and B) a little oversized, I definitely have to be planning a look with this jacket in mind. Luckily, this #OOTD was able to combine the skirt and the jacket perfectly! I included a photo with the jacket off (just because it isn’t really the most summer-appropriate,) but I prefer it on because of how it ties together the black elastic on the skirt’s waistband.

My work’s office is very cold, very frequently so I may have to do a workplace-friendly version of this outfit soon! (AKA: A full shirt, not a tube top. We may have the casual-chic dress code, but limitations still apply.) Stay tuned!

Feeling Paranormal

Today was the first day back at school after break, and honestly, it was super rough. I’m not usually someone who needs coffee to get through the day (I mostly just drink it for the taste,) but after my 8:30 was over I knew I needed to hit up the closest Starbucks drive through and get my hands on a venti caramel cloud macchiato, STAT.

Since I felt like the walking dead when I got up this morning, I channeled that paranormal energy into a new addition to my closet that I got over break! Three of these items are new, actually- the turtleneck tee and the corduroy jacket that I got thrifting our first day, and the ouija board pin that I got in downtown St. Augustine.

Disclaimer: I’ve never actually played with an ouija board, but I thought that the pin was so quirky and fun that I couldn’t pass it up.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Scrunchie: Black Scrunchie – Walmart
Jacket: Black Corduroy Jacket (similar)
Pin: Ouija Board Pin
Top: White Turtleneck T-Shirt (similar)
Skirt: Lace-Up Skirt (similar) 
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

If you’re just coming back from break, I hope you feel less like a zombie than I did! As I found out after devouring my cloud macchiato in 5 minutes or less, there’s no amount of sleepy that espresso shots can’t fix.
