My #OOTD Friday!

Hello My Beauties!

Guess what!? It’s Friday!!!!

Everyone loves Fridays, so I wanted to make it better by making it OOTD Fridays on this blog! I hope that you enjoy my favorite outfit for this week, I’ve been LIVING for comfortable clothes! Also, please excuse my headless lady-friend in the background, she is just doing what she does.

The Sweater: First off, I’m in LOVE with this sweater. In fact, I’m wearing it right now! Just kidding, but I wish I was. This evergreen Claiborne originally belonged to my dad when he was in college, but then my mom kinda stole it from him when they were dating, and now I’ve taken to this little treasure! I’ve been wearing it with basically anything, because it can be worn with basically anything! I’ve also found big, slouchy sweaters to be great for spring days and summer nights.

The Shirt: I got this shirt from American Eagle and let me tell you, it is the softest piece of clothing I’ve ever felt in my whole life. What attracted me to it was the beautiful plume with the sky-blue stripes in contrast. Then I tried it on and I refused to leave the store without it. Even though AE is a little bit on the higher end for my budget, they really know what they’re doing when it comes to clothing.

The Pants: These pants were actually from Pitaya,which is a small boutique in my hometown. They were about $50 (the most expensive pair of pants I’ve owned), but they are totally worth it! Not only have they lasted for a couple of years, they are also really stretchy and the denim is really soft and comfortable to be in. I’d say that they feel like the most authentic-looking pair of jeggings without actually being jeggings… if that makes sense.

The Scarf: I got this scarf from H&M back when I was in New York City for the summer. I didn’t have a lot of simple scarves back then, and I thought it would be very easy to pair with a lot of different outfits. It’s also very lightweight, so it’s very easy to move in and is the perfect scarf for warm days.

The Shoes: I found these bad boys at Aldo’s in the mall, and I’ve been attached to them ever since. At the time I had been looking for a nice pair of riding boots, but I never seemed to find any that were my style. Then, on a discount no less, these shoes were just sitting there, awaiting my purchase of them. They are lace-up, which I really like, but they still have the elastic sides that you would see on a riding shoe. They are my little slice of shoe heaven!

My March Favorites!

Hello My Beauties!

To kick off this last week of March I’m giving you my favorites of this month! There are some beauty items some food items, and some exercise items, so get hype!

My Favorites

O.P.I Nail Laquer in Passion: I don’t usually paint my nails, but when I do, I use O.P.I. (good on you if you got that reference). I’m favoriting any kind of Springy, floral, or pastel-y color of nail polish for the beginning for this month, and one of my favorite brands is OPI!

Almay Smartshade Concealer: Since I’ve started my very successful skincare routine (find it here), my skin has been so pretty and easy to deal with it’s unbelievable. So instead of going full-on foundation, I just use this concealer on my problem spots and under my eyes (AKA my designer bags) and blend it out with a brush! Super simple and saves a lot of time!

Sunglasses: I’m LOVING SUNGLASSES! Why?! Because sunglasses means that there is Sun, and Sun means it’s warm, and warmth means that it’s getting closer to Summer, and Summer means the following:

Tans

Shorts

T-shirts

Beach Days

Nice Weather

Sunglasses

I’m really excited if you couldn’t tell…

Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies: I bought 6 BOXES of these suckers and if that’s not a legitimate reason to have something in your favorites, I don’t know what is. I’m addicted to these things, to the point of eating way too much of them. But once you start, you can’t stop, so I blame the cookies.

Exercise (in general): I’ve started taking a personal fitness independent study through my school, so lately I’ve really gotten into the whole healthy “your body is a temple” kick, which is kinda hard to believe after I just ranted about Thin Mints. This month my favorite is everything exercise related: clothing, shoes, workout tapes, and most importantly, Blogilates!

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: It’s a Netflix Original. Tina Fey produced it. Ellie Kemper from The Office stars in it. What more needs to be said?

Thank you all so much for reading! Check out the video at the very top of the post and comment with your own March Favs! Until next time…
