OOTD: Friday Floral and Denim


Today’s ootd was experimental. It was cold out but I still wanted to wear a skirt. To stay warm, I threw on some olive colored tights and another skirt underneath my vintage blue floral skirt (thrifted). I paired it with a thrifted denim jacket that I wore as a top, a thrifted woven belt and a burgundy necklace that I found on clearance at Icing. Wasn’t sure what shoes to wear so I just went with a pair of black Mary Janes.

I coordinated a company wide paper airplane contest today. Everyone had so much fun getting away from their cubicles and just playing around like kids. My team won the best looking plane award and a cash prize! Not a bad way to start the weekend!

Aug. 28 OOTD: Friday Freedom


It was another tough day at work, juggling two jobs at once but I made it through without too much complaining, lol. I’m very excited about my OOTD today because it included a skirt that I made myself. The skirt used to be attached to a vintage puffy sleeved long dress that may have been work by an old lady in the 90s at some point, lol. It was pretty overwhelming on the eyes but I cut the bottom half off and added elastic to the waistband to refashion it into a flowy skirt. I’m really happy with how it turned out. Brandon helped me put this OOTD together since I couldn’t find my glasses this morning. We paired it with a thrifted Old Navy denim top, a leather belt and my nude shoes from Target. My bag is from Charming Charlie.  What do you think?

July 31, OOTD: Hot Outside, Cold Indoors


To finish off the month of July, I combined a mini dress, denim jacket and thrifted shorts for work. It’s getting really hot outside so my wardrobe is starting to get interesting, depending on how cold it is in the office in comparison to how hot it is outside. I wasn’t sure how this would turn out but once I took these pics, I felt pretty good about it. Thank goodness for loose dress codes at work. The other day I wore a button down top and proceeded to sweat all day long. haha.

Let me know what you think about this and feel free to leave a comment.

Careless OOTD in June: My Nike Zip Up


Sometimes you just don’t care about the way  you are dressed. All you want is to be comfortable and to watch Youtube videos all day. Is that too much to ask? If you have bills and obligations, yea, it is. But while I’m tending to that big list of responsibilities, I’m going to do it in tennis shoes.

The other day I went to work dressed like this. The dress code at my job is almost non-existent, luckily for me. It’s freezing half of the time so i grabbed a camisole and added this purple Nike zip up jacket. I put on some grey jeans and gold Coach tennis shoes because that’s what my hand landed on when I went into my closet. Since my clothes were pretty much random, I put on some make up and jewelry to keep things interesting and headed out the door. What kind of clothes/looks do you wear on days when you just don’t care about fashion? Do you have those kind of days or are you a well polished fashionista every day? Clearly, I’m not there yet. hahah.

Have courage,

5.12.15 OOTD: Denim and Denim


So I diverted from the capsule this week but I had a good reason. I went thrift shopping and couldn’t wait to start wearing my new threads. Hence, today I wore this denim Old Navy top along with the Seven jeans and Coach shoes. I forgot to wear ear rings so I put on some red lipstick and the peach colored belt from Forever 21. I think it worked out pretty well. What do you think?
