Little Linear Dress, the Work Version of an LBD

IMG_4317 This striped dress is the perfect thing to throw on when I'm crunched for time but need to look professional. You may remember that it served me well for an interview and a studio review, and on this day it was great for an early morning at work. The high neck keeps it classy but the cutoff sleeves keep me cool in the AZ heat. I paired with it some black shoes with a little height, and my every day bag. This bag has gold accents on the bottom, so I went another step to go all black and gold by adding a bangle and Casio watch.

I've been working so many days lately that I've missed my cutoffs and band tees. Luckily tonight is my good friend's birthday and I'll get to dress down a bit for a night of bowling to celebrate!

DSC_0551 Today I wanted to show how I transitioned the same dress from day to night, but when both looks are very casual and involve a lot of basics. The first outfit is what I wore to walk downtown to my favorite coffee shop and study, and the second shows how I added some extra layers for going to studio later in the night.

Although I wore a lot of red in my past two outfit posts, I am finding that I am more drawn to wearing neutrals now that my hair is a bolder color. I really like how the color looks against denim and black. I'll have to experiment with neutrals more in the next few weeks!

Since it was dark while I wanted to shoot this, I ended up in my room. However, I don't mind this because I like showing aspects of my space and one of the latest painting I've been working on!

OOTD 69_"Ace of Spades"

DSC_0255 This morning was sunny but chilly, and I was heading out to get my hair trimmed. I decided to go casual with this thrifted Motorhead tee and then dress it up with my accessories. The warm colors in the shirt pointed me in the direction of my gold jewelry, gold studs, and warm-toned cheetah print flats. This outfit was stylish, yet allowed me to stay comfy when I headed to the library later in the day.

Today's outfit track is of course "Ace of Spades" by Motorhead, what else? Listen along below.

Today was a good and productive day. I normally don't enjoy doing homework on Saturdays, but I did today and have decided this quarter that it will help me be less stressed out. I read a good quote today while waiting at the salon that said it's best to tackle your most difficult tasks first thing, because otherwise you will waste your energy worrying about it and not be as productive in the long run. Something to keep in mind! Today was also the first time I handed out one of my new business cards which was exciting!

IMG_0012 I'm still in the mood to wear festive colors although the holiday is over, so I pulled out my red tops today and paired them together for a day of hanging out with my parents. I don't think I've ever worn this top on the blog, but it's one of my favorite pieces in my closet. Arkaik Clothing is a local Arizona brand that represents the music scene and they turn out some cool stuff. I love this detailed sugar skull design for casual wear. I threw on my staple black jeggings and combat boots and headed out!

To go along with the whole local theme, today's outfit track is "Bottomfeeder" by blessthefall
