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!

Frozen Forest (OOTD)

picture602

It has been freaking freezing here the past week, so I’ve been just wearing as many layers as possible so I don’t turn into a popsicle on my way to class. But today I had some extra time to get ready, and I decided enough was enough. I wanted to look cute dammit! So I wore 3, yes three pairs of leggings under this dress. That plus my go to slouchy cardigan and I was actually super warm!

What I Wore:

Leggings (yes all three): Forever 21+
Cardigan: Target
Boots: Payless
Makeup: Post coming soon!!

I’m glad I finally got to wear a dress; it was a spirit booster for this already drab week. And I just love this shade of green. It’s a tad bit washed out in the pictures because of all the natural light from the window, but trust me, it’s gorgeous.

I’ve got a couple of posts lined up for this week! Two makeup ones and then a short story review. So keep your peepers open!!!

How are you dressing for this freezing weather? (or your nice mild weather. I’m looking at you west coast. >.>)

You Sly Fox! (OOTD)

picture541

What does the fox say? “You’re looking hot today!”

…. Sorry.

Anyway, I didn’t actually go anywhere today, but I had this outfit in my mind and wanted to throw it on for shits and giggles. I like the way it came out! This dress was a christmas gift so I hadn’t really styled it yet. I thought it was going to be one of those times where I plan an outfit out mentally, and then am super disappointed by how it doesn’t actually work in person. That sucks, but this outfit did not!

What I Wore:

Sweater: Old Navy
Dress: Forever 21+
Black Leggings: Forever 21+
Saddle Shoes: Payless
Lipstick: Wet n Wild in Sugar Plum Fairy

(I didn’t picture the shoes because I wasn’t actually going outside, but those are what I would’ve worn!)

Hard to believe that in a couple of days it’s going to be 2014! I’ve had a hell of a year. I’m hoping that this year has something good and exciting in store! How has your year been? Are you excited for 2014?

xoxo Gigi.

Nerd Alert (OOTD)

picture533

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.

What I Wore:

Cardigan: Target
Shirt: DFTBA
Leggings: Forever 21+
Boots: Payless

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.

Pumpkin Picking (OOTD)

Image

On Tuesday my roommates and I went to a local fall festival to pick some pumpkins! This is what I wore. The weather had finally cooled down so I could wear some booties and a sweater.

Image

What I wore:

Sweater: Lane Bryant
Skinnies: Forever 21+
Booties: Ebay
Pumpkin: Grim’s Fall Festival

I apologize for not posting too much lately. Life’s been moving faster than I can keep up. And I’ve decided that I need to keep myself in check before I go posting on the internet. Also, my apartment’s internet connection has been going in and out anyways so on Tuesday when I was going to post this I couldn’t.

Hope you’re having a great autumn so far!

Feeling Better (OOTD)

Aviary Photo_130239353475824587

It’s starting to get dark so early now! I guess I need to get my pictures done sooner in the day, haha.

The beginning of fall is starting to creep in, and with it is coming my better mood. I performed with the marching band and my colorguard this past weekend, and I’ve been riding a wave of good feelings since. I’m hoping the good mood sticks around just as long as the cooler weather.

I love fall SO much. It’s by far my absolute favorite season. I love the holidays, the fashion, the makeup, the crisp air, the changing leaves, the tv shows, the warm drinks, EVERYTHING. Today was finally cold enough for a more autumn-esque outfit with skinnies, a sweater, and a beanie. AND NOT TO MENTION MY NEW DARK LIPSTICK! (I may or may not be in love with dark lips).

Image

What I wore:

Sweater – Kmart
Beanie – 5 Below (I think?)
Shoes (Not Pictured) – Converse
Lipstick!!! – Rimmel Lasting Finish in 124 Bordeaux

Anyway I’ve been having a few good days, and today I wanted to wear some bold lipstick and a hat so I did. And I felt pretty good. Also isn’t the lace on this sweater awesome?

Thursday was a very low point for me and since Friday I’ve been going nowhere but up. I hope this trend keeps going. Hope you guys have a good week as well!
