OOTD: Does it Come in Black?

Hey everyone! I wanted to share an ootd (outfit of the day) with you today because I am obsessed with this look that I put together!
There is something about wearing all black that makes you feel powerful. I created this look using a couple new additions to my wardrobe! 

First, we need to talk about this shirt! This is the “Illusion Sweetheart Crop Top” in black. I purchased this adorable top from Forever 21 for $22 this past summer, and I am just now getting around to wearing it! I love the polka dot mesh and the ruffle combination!

I then paired this top with these belted high rise ankle pants from Charlotte Russe. I bought these pants right before the store closed. If you weren’t aware, Charlotte Russe went out of business earlier this year. They used to be my favorite store, but now that they’re back, I haven’t heard many great things about them. If I do decide to shop at Charlotte Russe again, I will let you know what I think of the quality of their clothing!

Next, you may be familiar with this jacket since it was in my “Finally Fall OOTD”. I will most likely be wearing this piece all season! It is the “Faux Leather Hooded Moto Jacket” in camel/gray. I purchased this jacket from Forever 21 this past summer for $15.

And lastly, my other recent purchase, these ankle boots! These are the “Faux Suede Booties”, also from Forever 21. I had been looking for a nice pair of pointed toe ankle boots for a while now, so when I came across these I had to have them! I paid around $20 for these shoes!

I truly believe that you don’t have to spend a ton of money to look put together or fashionable. I am not too sure how much the pants I am wearing cost, but they were most likely no more than $20, making this outfit’s total come to around $80. 
I love planning and putting outfits together and being able to share them with you! Thank you so much for reading!

OOTD: Finally Fall

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share an ootd (outfit of the day) with you! When I tell you I have been waiting FOREVER to share this outfit with you, I mean it! I am so excited to start wearing boots and jackets and that it is finally feeling like fall!

Let’s start with one of my newest obsessions! First, I want to talk about this adorable brown faux leather jacket! I bought this jacket from Forever 21 this past summer for $15! I’ve never owned a brown one, but I think I may like the look of it more than a black one! I feel like a brown leather jacket gives off a completely different vibe and I think that it can make your look a bit more casual than a black one would (especially with the attached gray hood that mine has)!

I then paired this jacket with my other new obsession. Can we talk about these jeans?! These are the “Kanta High Waisted Straight Leg Jeans” in the color Medium Indigo. I absolutely LOVE the look of two toned jeans, and these ones are from PacSun! I purchased these jeans for about $50. I am a major fan of high waisted jeans, and honestly if they ever go out of style, I will still refuse to go back to low rise jeans.

Under the jacket, I am wearing a simple gray t-shirt that I bought from Forever 21 for $10. And lastly, I paired the outfit with my favorite ankle boots that I got from Charlotte Russe last year.

Thank you for checking out my newest blog post! I love sharing ootd’s, and I can’t wait to share more with you! Until next time!

How to Transition Your Wardrobe From Summer to Fall

Today I wanted to share a few tips on how to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall! I am so over the heat at this point and I am ready to start busting out my sweaters and knee high boots, but it is still around 80-90 degrees where I live (it is cooling down a bit though)! I decided to share three different outfits to wear when it isn’t cool enough out for jackets and scarves, but it is just starting to cool off enough to take some of your staple fall pieces and incorporate them into your wardrobe!

If you haven’t been able to tell already from my ootd’s (outfit of the days), I love wearing dresses! If it is warm out, you will probably see me wearing a dress. I bought this dress almost a year ago and I am just now getting the chance to wear it. (I think it’s because I buy way too many clothes, but that’s beside the point!)

The first thing I do when summer ends, is I start incorporating fall colors into my wardrobe. By wearing colors like navy, olive, burgundy, maroon, or mustard, you will be using your wardrobe to transition into fall seamlessly.  The outfits will feel and look a lot more fall-like than if you were to wear bright colors like you would in the summertime! I paired this dress with my favorite ankle boots at the moment. Booties are the perfect addition any outfit in the fall, and they are a staple piece in my wardrobe for this season!

This second outfit is one of my favorites! I paired a very simple and basic piece with a fancier statement piece from my wardrobe. If you’re a fan of florals and you just don’t want to let them go, you can absolutely wear them all year round! If you want to wear florals in the fall, make sure that the colors of the clothing are seasonal. These wide leg capri pants are the perfect way to wear floral prints while still incorporating the color burgundy, which is my favorite fall color. They are also flowy and not made of an incredibly thick material, so I won’t get too hot! Underneath is just a simple black body suit. I wore these beautiful taupe heels as well. I also decided to wear a cardigan with this outfit because it gives the look a bit more of a cozier feel.

And lastly, I wanted to share a bit more of a casual outfit for those of you who aren’t very girly. If you wore crop tops all summer long and you want to wear them in the fall, you still can! I wore this olive green crop top with a pair of blue high waisted jeans. I also put on these brown heels that were in my “Coral Me crazy” ootd. If you want an even more casual look, swap out the heels for a stylish pair of sneakers! I took the same gray cardigan from the previous outfit and paired it with this outfit as well. I don’t own one at the moment, but I think that a brown fedora screams fall! A hat like this would be perfect with the navy blue dress or the outfit pictured below.

I hope that you found these tips helpful, and if you’re still dealing with 80-90 degree weather like me, don’t you worry, we will all be complaining about the cold weather soon enough! Thank you for reading!

OOTD: Coral Me Crazy

What better way to end summer than in a dress? Today I wanted to share an ootd (outfit of the day) with you because I am just obsessed with this dress!

This is the “Boutique Lace High Neck Skater Dress” from Boohoo.com! I purchased this dress for about $40 and it is in the color red (it is definitely more of a coral color), but it also comes in ivory and nude.  I had been wanting to buy a dress like this for a while, but did not end up finding one that I liked until I saw this one. The bright coral/red is stunning and perfect for any end-of-summer events you may be attending!

I paired this dress with these gorgeous heels that I bought from Charlotte Russe a couple of years ago. I felt that the brown matched the dress very well.

Thank you for reading! There are going to be plenty of ootd’s coming in the future (I am most likely done sharing summer outfits and will be transitioning my wardrobe to fall), so stay tuned for more! Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog and share with your friends!

OOTD: End-of-Summer Blues

Hey everyone! Today I just wanted to share an ootd (outfit of the day) with you since I recently bought the most beautiful dress!

This is the “Someday Swoon Royal Blue Embroidered Midi Dress” from Lulus.com! I found this dress on sale for $12! It is the perfect end-of-summer dress, and it comes in royal blue and coral red. What drew me to this dress was the fact that it reminded me of my recent trip to Alaska, where the state flower is the “Forget-Me-Not”.

Since the dress reminded me of Alaska, I figured that I should wear my Forget-Me-Not earrings that I purchased at a souvenir store in Seward for around $15.

And lastly, I paired this beautiful dress with these adorable color block heels. I felt that the nude, white, and navy blue complimented the dress perfectly, and I bought these at Gabes for $10!

 (Something that you will eventually notice is that I switch up my outfits VERY often, but when it comes to accessories, I will typically reach for the same pairs of shoes or bags that I already own. I think that when it comes to fashion, you can create so many different looks using the same accessories. You do not always have to spend extra money on accessories to complete an outfit. As long as you have basic pieces in your wardrobe, almost all of your outfits should match!)

Thank you for reading! I have so much more planned for this website and I am so excited to share everything! I would appreciate it if you shared with your friends and subscribed to my blog!
