thank u, next

Is it super obvious what album I listened to as I wrote this post?

This Ariana Grande tee is one of my latest H&M finds- I saw it and immediately knew it was meant for me. Her thank u, next album is full of bops, and “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored” is definitely up there for me!

I’m a huge fan of black and pastel pink (it gives me Barbie vibes) so I knew I should pair it with my lace-up black skirt- possibly the only other item in my wardrobe that can rival this shirt’s sassiness. And what would a sassy #OOTD be without some hoops and a half-up, half-down pony? Incomplete. That’s what.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Scrunchie: Black Scrunchie – Walmart
Earrings: Silver Hoop Earrings – Walmart
Top: Ariana Grande Tee – H&M
Skirt: Lace-Up Skirt (similar) 
Shoes: Grand Court Sneaker – Adidas

This Ariana tee definitely isn’t the only light pink item I picked up in my recent haul. I can’t wait to keep showcasing my finds over the coming weeks!

Cash Money

Today was the first day of my last weekend in Austin! I decided to spend my day going to some of the places I can’t find in Norman- and for me, that meant brunch at Tacodeli, and then shopping at H&M and Buffalo Exchange.

I spent more money than I meant to today ($170) but I walked away with 22 items, so I think it was a fair trade. I got so many cute things and I can’t wait to show them to y’all over the coming weeks!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Earrings: Tortoise Disc Post Earrings – Target
Purse: Kate Spade Saddle Bag (similar)
Shirt: Slim-Fit Fine-Gauge Rib-Knit Tee – Old Navy
Skirt: Green Mini Skirt – Divided by H&M
Shoes: Grand Court Sneaker – Adidas

If I’m being honest, I’m probably going to go get Tacodeli again tomorrow. I’m going to be devastated when I don’t have easy access to it anymore- the closest one to Norman is actually the one that just opened by my house in Frisco.

Stay tuned to see new items from my haul!

Trailblazer

Remember when I said I was dreaming up new #OOTDs when stuck in bed last week? This is one of them. I’ve been sitting on this blazer for a while, unsure quite how to style it. During my hours on bedrest, I decided to mentally go through my wardrobe and finally figure out the solution!

The answer deceptively simple. Since I work in an office with a casual-chic dress code, I knew I didn’t have to dress it up too much- in fact, I should probably focus on dressing it down. So, I paired it with a plain white tee, my trusty black jeans, and my signature Adidas. This look screams “woman on the go” while still being professional. I’m always trying to perfect the line between casual and presentable, and I think this fits that perfectly!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Bandana: Black Bandana – Hobby Lobby
Blazer: Twill Blazer – Target
Shirt: Slim-Fit Fine-Gauge Rib-Knit Tee – Old Navy
Belt: Loop Belt – Target
Jeans: Mid-Rise Rockstar Super Skinny Jeans – Old Navy
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

Back At It

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!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Jacket: Freeborn Denim Jacket – Target
Dress: Striped T-Shirt Dress (similar)
Leggings: High-Waist Leggings – Yogalicious
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

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!
