OOTD: Vintage Florals

Yesterday, my friends and I went to see Iron Man 3. When went to the Palladium, which is theatre that was recently built. It’s not a typical movie theatre- it’s Greek and they sell gyros there. They also have a small bowling alley and multiple gelato machines with a dessert counter thing. It’s huge. Even the bathrooms are nice. They remind me of bathrooms at a nice hotel and they have INDIVIDUAL hand sanitizer dispensers in each stall! They also have something called D-Box. Tbh, I don’t really understand what it is, I just know it’s expensive- $18.50 a ticket! We didn’t go bowling or try any of the food, but the movie itself was surprisingly cheap. It was $7.50 for 3D.

Anyways, even though I didn’t have school, I woke up super early. That meant I had a lot of time on my hands and just decided to dress up. I actually hate wearing pants, so I ended up wearing a dress that day.

OOTN: Graduation Dinner at Ciao Bello

My cousin just finished college and she had a graduation dinner. It was at Ciao Bello, which I had never been to, but I was told that casual attire was allowed. This meant that I could wear jeans. I also wanted to wear one of my new tops, so I asked my mom and she picked the red one.

Polka Dot Peplum

Florals

What I’m Wearing:

  • Blouse- Monteau from Marshalls
  • Jeans- Gap Always Skinny Jeans
  • Shoes- b.o.c flats from Famous Footwear
  • Earrings- Findingbeads on Ebay
  • Watch- Michael Kors from Macy’s

Since dolka dots and florals are really in this season, I decided to combine the two. I also wanted accessories that would be cohesive with my rose gold watch since I don’t own any actual rose gold jewelry. The earrings that I got from Ebay, which are white and gold, were only like $1.99! How crazy is that? I actually my order of jewelry a while ago, and planned on making a post, but never did. If you would like to see a haul of the items I purchased and would like to know about my overal experience with it, please comment below! Also, if you would so check out some cheap, cute jewelry, check out findingbeads on Ebay! *Note: This is not being sponsored. I just think that while there were some mistakes made, they have great customer service and are willing to take care of anything to make sure you’re happy!

That’s it for this quick OOTN! It’s just about 1 A.M. now and I have to a busy day ahead of me tomorrow, so I’m going to call it night! I hope that everyone enjoys their Mother’s Day, and if you guys are interested (and probably even if you’re not) I’ll post an OOTD from my Mother’s Day brunch.

OOTD: Brights and Stripes Take 2

What I’m Wearing:

  • Top- Forever 21
  • Pants- Old Navy Rockstar Jeans
  • Flats- Lucky Brand from Off 5th: Saks Fifth Avenue (obviously my go-to shoes)
  • Watch- Michael Kors from Macy’s

I actually wore this outfit last week but haven’t had time to create a post about it. It started because I was going through my closet and pulled out this top from Forever. I decided to wear this top because I’ve had it for a while, and I’ve only worn it a handful of times. I think the reason I never wore it that often was because it was so long. It even came with the belt/tie thingy, but I always thought the loops were too low. After that, I decided to wear these pants because the hole in my fav. jeans is getting kinda big and so I have to work my other pants in to rotation.

So, I’m going to be honest, I was really skeptical about wearing this outfit. I’m not really sure what the reason for this skepticism was, but it was there. I guess it was because I’ve never worn them (the pants and the top) together at once. Or it could have been that I’ve never worn the shirt with the belt that is included. Maybe it was because I rolled the pants up. Idk. Whatever the reason was, I was terrified about wearing it to school. I asked both the BFF and my mom if I looked stupid and they said no, but my fears still weren’t cast aside. Even though I had my doubts, I wore it to school anyways and kept saying to myself “Stop being so stupid. No one looks at you.”

Unfortunately, as I was walking in to the building, I passed by two girls who were laughing and said something along the lines of “I like that outfit.” Of course this could have been completely innocent or about someone else, but I got super paranoid. For the rest of the day, I felt like everyone was criticizing me because that’s just what people in high school do. But whatever, I made it through the day, which is all that matters.

So that’s it for this OOTD and little rant/story telling (?). Thanks for stopping by!

Do you ever feel weird about wearing certain outfit? Do you wear it anyways cuz “I do want I waannt” or do you take them off and go for something more simple?

OOTD: Brights and Stripes

I know my last OOTD post was more boring than usual, so hopefully, today’s will sort of compensate for that. So this weekend, it got pretty cold. Luckily, it would warm up by mid day, so it wasn’t so bad. With this weekend weather in mind, I decided to pick something that would be warm enough for the cool morning weather, but wouldn’t be too unbearable for the afternoon heat.

(Sorry for the yellow lighting!)

What I’m Wearing:

  • Shirt- Gilly Hicks
  • Pants- Old Navy
  • Jacket- Abercrombie
  • Flats- Lucky Brand from Off 5th: Saks Fifth Avenue
  • Watch- Michael Kors from Macy’s

Normally, I would have thrown on a pair of regular denim skinnies, but since they just came out of the wash, I didn’t feel like squeezing in to them this morning. Instead, I opted for some color pants. Since my corals pants are so loud, I toned everything else down. I went for a neutral striped shirt and my cropped, wannabe leather jacket.

So that’s it for this quick update! If you like the colored pants trend, like this post and I’ll try to include them in more of my OOTDs.

I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their day, and if I don’t post anymore this week, the rest of their week!

OOTN: Family Dinner at Del Frisco’s

So this is going to be my first fashion post. Obviously I post hauls, but that doesn’t really count. I’m not sure if you guys know, but I love clothes. I just don’t post much about it because my style is so boring. I’m in no way a fashionista; I dress pretty casually. I’m a t-shirt kinda girl. I only ever look put together when I’m going out. Besides that, everything I wear is pretty plain.

Anyways, my family and I went out to Del Frisco’s tonight and if you’ve been there, you know that the dress code is on the nicer side. Since, this restaurant is a nicer one, I always try to look a little more presentable.
