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.

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.

Blue Me Away (OOTD)

picture860

During the summer I cling to these kimono dresses. I have 6 different colors/prints, and I live in them as soon as the weather heats up. They’re super comfortable but still flattering! I was just lounging around at home on this day, so I didn’t show shoes, but I’ll wear basically anything with these. I’m not a huge flip flop person, so I’ll usually wear this with my converse or maybe a pair of casual oxfords. My white lace oxfords from Payless would look super cute with this!

This is one of my favorite dresses that I own just for the color alone. This shade of blue is so vibrant and looks so good with my dark hair. With a tan, this dress pops even more!

Dress: Walmart
Makeup: See my last post!

Also, today is the one year anniversary of me signing up on WordPress!!! I didn’t actually start using the blog until a couple weeks later, so I’ll celebrate properly on the anniversary of my first post. I can’t believe I actually stuck with this thing for a whole year. (For the most part).

xoxo Gigi.

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

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.

Stay Classic (OOTD)

picture773

On friday it was super rainy, and the temp was at a weird in-between state where I couldn’t decide which jacket I should wear. I was cold and uninspired, so I decided to go with a classic look that I’m sure you’ve seen on hundreds of teen girls (and never on me). It was comfortable and stylish at the same time, and the red lip added just a touch of glam.

This isn’t a stand out outfit by any means, but it was relatively cute and I felt good in it. That warrants a blog post.

What I Wore:

White Tee: Target
Denim Shirt: Old Navy
Black Jeggings: Zara
Boots: Forever 21+
Lipstick: NYX matte lipstick in Perfect Red

picture781

The lighting is obviously pretty crappy. The storm was really starting to roll in as I was taking these. However, somehow I got my hair and makeup to cooperate all day, despite the dreary conditions. Friday was a pretty good day overall, actually. (And I think my butt looked fantastic).

Here’s to more good days and less rainy ones (unless I can stay inside).
xoxo Gigi.
