Maroon Meow (OOTD)

picture898

Hey y’all! It’s definitely feeling like fall outside, and I am LOVING IT. After the uber hot and gross weather we had those first few weeks of the semester, I was dying to get myself into some cute sweaters/leggings/scarves/boots/lipsticks! (I’m really passionate about fall fashion.) Now that the weather has finally cooled down. I’m taking advantage. Of course it still warms up too much by midday, and I end up pushing up my sleeves in a huff, but I refuse to stop dressing so cute!

Today my friends and I decided to all wear maroon pants just for shits and giggles. Now, I really don’t like how my maroon pants fit, so I cheated and wore my new maroon leggings instead. #ohwell. (Note that the leggings look more red toned in person than they do in the pic. I really dont like plummy maroons.)

What I Wore:

Sweater: Forever 21+
Leggings: Forever 21+
Combat Boots: Payless
Lipstick: Rimmel in Bordeaux 124

This sweater is just so stinkin cute! When I saw this online last season I absolutely HAD to have it. I am a hardcore cat person, and this just spoke to me. Also it’s super long and cozy, and it’s also not too thick or thin of a material. Basically, this sweater is purrfection.

When I was planning this outfit in my head, I knew I had to pull out one of my favorite fall lipsticks from Rimmel. I only wish it were a matte finish instead of cream, but with a few rounds of blotting it stays put. For some reason, I find it really hard to find good deep red lipsticks. Berries and plums are super prevalent, but a dark brick red alludes me. It’s one of my goals to find the perfect fall red this season. If you have any suggestions please let me know!

Well that’s it for this post. Thanks for reading! I hope you’re enjoying the beautiful weather!

Nerd Alert (OOTD)

Here’s just a cozy saturday outfit. I got both the nerd shirt and the orange cardigan for christmas and couldn’t resist wearing them asap. Both fit like a dream, and the cardigan is one of the most comfortable things I’ve ever worn. I have one in black as well, and I can tell these are going to become highly worn items. And of course, no outfit would be complete and comfortable for me without black leggings and combat boots.

I was going to post my christmas eve church outfit, but it’s basically the same as my interview outfit from September. I had a pretty low key holiday, I spent it with my family opening gifts and feeling the christmas cheer! Then friday night I got together with some close friends and exchanged gifts and hung out. It was super laid back and tons of fun!

So how was your christmas? What are your plans for the new years?

Happy holidays!!
xoxo Gigi.

Outer Space and Beyond…

So a couple of weeks ago this gorgeous dress was released on forever 21+’s website and I went wild. I’ve been looking for a galaxy print dress that wasn’t too expensive, too overwhelming, or too small. And then this beauty fell into my life. The print is just out of this world (pun intended sorry not sorry), but I was a bit apprehensive. The back was a little out of my comfort zone. It showcased a part of my body I’m not super thrilled with. I still took the risk and bought it because it was too perfect and right in my price range. I am SO HAPPY I went for it! It’s a tad tight under the bust, but once school starts up again I should tone up that part real quick anyway. I strapped on my best strapless bra and I was in heaven; my back didn’t bulge much at all! Also the neckline is super cute and flattering for my chest. Everything about it is perfect and I am extremely pleased.

In other news I got my new pair of boots! I have wanted a good pair of black combat boots for a long time and now I finally have them! They are also pretty damn perfect. You have no idea how hard it is to find cute shoes in a size 12. Thank goodness for Payless.

P.S. I just completed my last shift for this summer at Subway. Thank goodness! Now I’m free to enjoy the last couple of weeks of my summer.
