Winter break

Dress: Thrifted Leggings: Target Boots: Payless

I wore this dress a few days ago when it was warm enough to break from my usual winter pants situation.  Unfortunately right after 10 or so inches of snow were dumped on the city and we're now gearing up for our third polar vortex. I hate winter. Anyway, I really love this dress although it's a bit short. It may actually be more of a tunic type situation if I was average height, but at 5'1 it's still long enough on me to wear as a dress. I've been dying to find more shirt dresses since finding this one, I haven't had much luck but they're definitely on my to find list.

Valentine's Day

Skirt: A|Wear via ASOS Top: H&M Tights & Boots: Target

           I've never been a Valentine's Day hater, although I'm pretty much always single on Valentine's day, I love the giving of cheesy valentines to friends and of course chocolate. I genearlly just acknowledge the day maybe wear red or pink and then wait for single girls Valentines day aka February 15th when all v-day chocolate is 50% off. This year though I'm in a relationship and actually have a valentine so I had to actually make plans, buy things, and figure out what to wear. It was all a bit weird, but good. After thinking about possible v-day outfits I remembered this galaxy print pencil skirt that i've had since the end of last summer and never really worn. I love the skirt and the pink and purple go with the whole valentine's day theme so that was sort of the base of the outfit. After deciding on the skirt I wanted a cute top to go with it and after going through a few options I decided to go with this pink chunky knit sweater. I'm not completely sure if I like the outfit as much as I thought I would, it may have looked better in my head, but it's still pretty good and I was glad I got to finally wear my skirt. Anyway I had a lovely Valentine's Day and hope you did too.

Lumberjack Chic

Shirt: Target | Jeans: Old Navy | Boots: Payless

          Button downs have been having a serious moment in my wardrobe lately, I'm not really sure why. I'm guessing it has something to do with extreme cold we've been having this winter.  Either way they've become my go to item for a casual day out. I got this shirt a few years ago at Target and was super excited to wear it until I walked into class the next day and at least 3 other people were wearing the same shirt. I know it shouldn't but something about seeing so many people wear the same item kinda puts a damper on it. So I relegated it to dorm lounge wear and kept it moving. But, I could never bring myself to donate it so when plaid made a big trendy comeback last fall I knew I had to dust this baby off. Since the fall I've been wearing this shirt more than ever, it's super comfy and warm which is always a plus in the winter.
