Vintage Rose (OOTD)

Photo Mar 16, 12 43 46 PM

AYO hello everyone! Long time no see!

Last week was my Spring Break, and I decided it was time to get back into the swing of things. As much as I adore my roommates and best friends here at school, we definitely encourage lazy behavior when we’re together (which is 97% of the time). Therefore, I completely fell out of the routine that saved me last spring when I was feeling down. I stopped trying with my appearance and, with that, I stopped maintaining this blog. This definitely affected my self-confidence significantly. Over my break, I realized that I needed to work on building myself up again. The journey to complete self-love and acceptance is never-ending, and I can’t slack or my mental health suffers.

So here’s to living a happier and healthier life.

So how about this ADORABLE dress, eh? I love it’s faded/worn look, and it’s in my trusty, go-to silhouette. It’s a super flattering cut and pattern, and I feel HELLA cute in it. I threw on a light, cream cardigan to complete the look and add some warmth. Also it looks pretty schnazzy wrapped around my waist. I paired these pieces with my trusty black leggings and black combat boots, folded down for extra flair.

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!

P.S. More roommate love.

In the Archives (OOTD)

picture838

 

I was cleaning up  my blog folders and I found a set of outfit photos that I never got around to posting! This was one of my super comfy, but still cute, outfits that I wore towards the end of my semester. This skirt is actually a tube top dress that I fold under and put over a shirt often. I like it much better like this. Tube tops just don’t work with my top half… at all.

What I Wore:

Shirt: Target
Skirt: Target
Leggings: Forever 21+
Shoes: (probably) Payless

(yes those are socks!)

So yeah a quick and cute outfit, pockets included!

Simply Spring (OOTD)

picture831

 

Despite the snow last night (crazy!),  I wanted a touch of spring in my outfit today. I went with this fun, colorful top tied over my little black dress. It was still cold so I paired it with my trusty black leggings and combat boots. Simple, but still a little pop of spring with this drastically cooler weather.

What I Wore:

Shirt: Walmart
Dress: Forever 21+
Leggings: F21+
Boots: Payless

picture832

So yeah, not much else to say in this post. It seems lately as one thing dies down, another thing picks back up. Today I am finally getting some down time! Also I really am loving this weather. I love cooler spring days! (Although the snow can go away. I’ve had enough of that for the year.)

Hope you’ve had a nice week!
xoxo Gigi.

Flower Child (OOTD)

picture804

 

Another new dress! I got this beauty from Asos last week. It’s my first dress from there and I’m incredibly happy with it! I even got it for an amazing deal. I got it for more than half off! I feel so pretty and springy in this. Without the belt it doesn’t really have a defined waist, and it’s so fun to spin around in. The fabric is just so soft and flowy, and everything about its proportions is perfect. I can see this becoming one of my favorite dresses real fast.

What I Wore:

Dress: Asos Curve
Belt: Target
Leggings: Forever 21+
Combat Boots: Payless
Lipstick: ELF Matte Lipcolor in Natural + NYX Matte Lipstick in Hippie Chic

picture809

So yeah, there was nothing absolutely crazy about this outfit; it’s pretty straight forward. The dress is incredibly adorable and perfect for the warmer weather that is rolling in! But doesn’t that NYX lipstick have just the perfect name?

xoxo Gigi.

Blackout (OOTD)

picture790

Over spring break I kind of went dress-buying crazy. There were so many good deals, and now that I’m really sure in my personal style, online shopping is a breeze. I know what fits me well, and who sells it for the best price. I am in love with every single piece I purchased, and I can’t wait to show you all in upcoming OOTD’s!

I did notice that there is a lack of color in this outfit, but the print is loud enough. It is just incredibly flattering on my hourglass figure, though! And the neutrality gave me a chance to play up a more bright lip color. I’m really into bright purple and berry lips for this spring.

What I Wore:

Dress, leggings, heart key necklace: Forever 21
Combat boots: Payless
Lips: Wet n Wild Megalast in Mauve Outta Here + Almay Liquid Lipbalm in Pink Pout

Yo, F21 should seriously hire me or something; I am always wearing something of theirs! I can’t get over how their skater dresses fit me so perfectly. The best part about this dress (and most of my F21 dresses) is that this will be long enough that I won’t be uncomfortable wearing it without leggings. The worst part about spring is getting accustomed to baring leg again (and battling chub rub!).

 Monday was our first real taste of spring. Despite the wind, it was absolutely gorgeous outside! People are saying that it’s still cold, but high 50s/low 60s is my favorite weather. I don’t want it any warmer than this!

How are you celebrating the spring weather?
xoxo Gigi.

How to Remix a Green Dress (St. Patty’s Day OOTD!)

picture737

I love this simple knit green dress, and it’s in the perfect shade for St. Patty’s Day! However, just wearing a plain green dress can be a little boring for us fashion lovers, so here’s a couple of ways you could spice it up! They’re all pretty simple, since I’m a minimalist when it comes to my personal style, so just keep in mind that you could do even more to jazz up your holiday outfit!

The green dress is from Target and the leggings are from Forever 21+. Although I didn’t include shoes, I would recommend black combat boots or maybe some cute black and white saddle shoes!

Simple Accessories 

If you want the green dress to really be the stand out piece, then try complimenting it with a simple but unique accessory. This is an antique pocket watch that I found online for super cheap. I love the super long chain, and it adds a little bit of vintage glam to any outfit!

Dress it Down

This is how I chose to wear the dress a little while ago.  I like wearing loose, comfy button downs over my dresses to make them a bit more casual. This chambray shirt adds another color without competing with the vibrancy of the dress, and the rolled up sleeves give it a laid-back appearance. I really love this combo!

Colorblocking

This is probably my favorite out of the three. I always love using my tops to remix dresses and add different aspects to my  outfits. I picked this royal blue to play off the deepness of the green. The two primary colors compliment each other perfectly. If you were feeling especially vibrant, you could keep the primary colorblocking look going by wearing red or yellow shoes!

These are just a couple of quick ways you can mix up your St.Patty’s day look. I’m pretty sure this dress can still be found in store at Target, so try to snatch it up if you can! It’s a perfect addition to anyone’s wardrobe.

Which look is your favorite?
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
xoxo Gigi.
