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.

Break Free (OOTD)

picture885

Hey y’all! The fashion posts are officially back! I am so passionately in love with this dress that I had to make a post immediately. 

So obviously, I’ve been pretty absent from this blog. However, no apologies or excuses. Life happened; that’s it.

The title of today’s blog is brought to you by my obsession with Break Free by Zedd/Ariana Grande. I’m not a big fan of Ariana, but mostly anything by Zedd really gets me boogieing out of my seat. 

Update on my life? Being captain is hard work. Getting tan basically happened over night. The side-braid is unsurprisingly omnipresent. The textbook buying process was significantly more difficult than semesters past. Using blogspot for blogging is excruciating (doing it for a class). I’m feeling more confident and fabulous that I ever have, thanks to my beautiful friends. Choreographing a sassy swing dance is so much fun. I’m genuinely interested in all of my classes this semester, no matter how frustrating they may be. On the first day my professor for Dinosaurs legit squatted on a chair in the front of the class and pretended to lay an egg. College, man. 

Anyway, on to this beauteous dress.

What I Wore:

Dress: Forever 21+
Oxfords: Gifted
Lips: Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain – India

This dress is just so. flippin. cute! The box pleats are incredibly flattering, and teal and gray are my favorite colors to wear! When I saw this dress online, I knew I absolutely had to have it. It fits like a damn glove. The best part easily is that the teal isn’t just big ol’ polka dots; they’re actually speech bubbles!

This is just the perfect dress for me, and I’m so happy about it’s existence in my closet (or more currently: on my body.) I got so many nice compliments today, and yeah… I’m feeling good about it. Did ya notice? 

Also this lippie is bomb. I’m all about that deepened radiant orchid color for this fall. Highly recommend.

First Day of School! …Kinda. (OOTD)

Image

Sorry for the lack of posts but I’ve been very busy with moving into school and getting all situated and settled. It’s been pretty much nonstop with band camp and classes since the 15th. I’m finally starting to find time to breathe.

This is what I wor,e to my third day of classes. I’ve been rocking the graphic tee and comfortable high waisted skirt combo basically since I’ve stepped foot on campus. It was gross and rainy all day today so comfy was definitely the first thing to come to mind. My hair did suffer today, but my outfit did not!

Loving the combat boots on a rainy day. Who says that I have to stuff my thick calves into tacky rainboots? These look good AND they do the job!

Yes, this is a Supernatural shirt. Gotta love some Winchesters on Hump Day!!!

And yes, that’s my roommate photobombing in the background.

What I wore:
Shirt: Redbubble
Skirt: AsosCurve (On sale!)
Boots: Payless

Here have some plus size roommate love.

I have a life update post scheduled for tomorrow where I’m going to talk about the future of this blog while I’m at school and other general things about my life right now. Stay tuned!

Last Days of Summer (OOTD)

Image

So in about 36 hours I will be moving into my apartment and getting ready for my fall semester my sophomore year to begin, so today I spent some of my last hours with my close friends. I am very anxious and nervous, and overall leaving is turning out to be very bittersweet. My job overworked me and it made my summer go by way too fast without me being able to enjoy it, but it still was a pretty good one. I just feel a bit stressed and sad to bid my best friends farewell once again.

Image

This is what I wore for my second to last day with a couple of friends. I hope to hang out tomorrow with some others.

Fun fact, this is the first dress that I wore that actually made me feel pretty and comfortable. I have always tried wearing dresses, but I never felt beautiful enough, and I ended up having an awkward sweat throughout the day. I don’t know what it was about the dress. Maybe it was the more vintage cut, or the comfortable fabric, or maybe by that point I was already starting to browse body positive blogs and it was building my confidence. But whatever this was, it started a dress movement in my life and I haven’t slowed down since. I guess it’s kind of ironic that I decided to end my summer in it.

Image

Image

What I wore:

Dress: Target
Belt: Target (from another dress)
Oxfords: Payless

Image

Image

So yes, my summer is coming to close and I had a wonderful day with some wonderful people. I am still very excited for my upcoming semester and my first year living in an apartment!

Image

I wanted to take a picture of my shoes, my friend said she wanted to be included.

Image

I’m going to miss them so much. But here’s to a new chapter of my life.

xoxo Gigi.
