Born to be Wild

I love the quote that goes something like “I was born to be wild, but only until 9 p.m. or so.” I feel like that has perfectly described me lately- with the ramping up of basically everything in my life, I’m working to continue making sleep a priority. Being in bed by 10 every night helps me get up super early for my Tuesday/Thursdays, which is essential because I like to beat the crowds to campus and have some peace and quiet for my #OOTD shoots, all before my 9 a.m. class. It definitely sets me up for a busy day!

I’ve also found that adequate sleep also helps me manage my stress levels, something I’m already finding to be super important this year. How do you manage your stress levels?

Call Me, Beep Me!

Confession time: I never actually watched Kim Possible as a kid. But I definitely felt like I was channeling some KP vibes today with this #OOTD. Am I wrong?

My last class of the afternoon was cancelled, meaning I would be able to get home before the heat of the day hit. (Hello, jeans weather!) I’ve been looking for an excuse to break these out- they were one of my incredible H&M finds from about a month ago- and I’m glad the weather cooperated and allowed me to stay comfortable all morning. I’m loving the camo print, I definitely want to pick up some more camouflage pieces for fall!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Earrings: Smooth Metal C Hoop Earrings – Target 
Top: Jersey Top – H&M
Belt: Loop Belt – Target
Pants: Super Skinny High Jeggings – H&M
Shoes: Ward Sneaker – Vans

The only con I can find of wearing crop tops to campus is that sometimes my classrooms are freezing cold. I’ve had to start bringing a sweatshirt to break out just in case my classes start to double as the arctic tundra!

Comfy-Casual

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!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Sunglasses: Cateye Sunglasses – Target
Shirt: Boyfriend Linen-Blend Pocket Tee – Old Navy
Belt: Loop Belt – Target
Shorts: High-Waisted Denim Shorts (similar)
Shoes: Ward Sneaker – Vans

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.

Jumping Through Hoops

I’ve been applying to internships for summer 2019 and it is such a process! It’s going to be so rewarding once I get accepted to one that’s a good fit for me, but right now I just feel like I’m jumping through so many hoops and not seeing any results. I know my hard work will pay off in the long run, though!

In other news, I’m so thankful that the worst of winter is behind us! Being able to consistently break out my cutest skirts brightens my day. I’m a huge fan of leopard print, as you may already know, so when I found this one at Uptown Cheapskate I knew I had to have it.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Earrings: Silver Hoop Earrings – Walmart
Shirt: Women’s Fitted Short Sleeve Crew T-Shirt – Target
Skirt: Leopard Skirt (similar)
Shoes: Ward Sneaker – Vans

Keep checking back to see my next #OOTD!

Tell Me About It, Stud

I love any excuse I can get to wear my leather jacket because it makes me feel like Sandy from Grease! I recreated her final scene all-black outfit for Halloween this year, but that’s not really a look I consider modern or practical for my daily life. So when I’m wanting to channel some Pink Ladies energy, this is typically the #OOTD I lean towards. This is about as edgy as I’ll go most days!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Bandana: Leopard Print Bandana – Hobby Lobby
Jacket: Faux-Leather Moto Jacket – Macy’s
Dress: Slub-Knit Tee Dress – Old Navy
Shoes: Ward Sneaker – Vans

Honestly, my heart broke when they took Grease and Grease Live off of Netflix. I guess listening to the soundtrack on repeat will have to do…

Check back soon for my next #OOTD!
