OOTD_85

DSC_0728 This weekend I've spent hours on hours in studio working towards the mid-review I have on Wednesday, so when taking breaks to meet up with my friends for lunch, I seized the opportunity to change out of my sweats and put on something cute! I was looking for an outfit to style this new satchel I picked up at Target which I eyed forever until I snagged it for 8 bucks! It was the perfect match for this summery dress from an inexpensive store at home. The weather this weekend was so warm and sunny--it put me in the best mood!

I also love how versatile this dress is. Another one of my favorite ways to style it can be seen in this outfit post.

OOTD 74

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_65: "Paradise"

DSC_0172 So today is the day I am en route back to California. As you're reading this, I'm probably on the plane wearing a flannel and leggings--not this outfit. However, I got these leggings for Christmas and was dying to style them right away. For school days I plan to wear them casually, but today I paired them with this spiked cutout dress I found at TJ Maxx. I thought these pieces went together well because the dress is a little on the short side and also doesn't compete with the leggings too much. Finally, how amazing is the spiked clutch? I got it as a gift from my mom, she knows me so well!

The track for today's outfit is "Paradise" by Coldplay. Soemthing about the intro and these leggings seemed to go together for me. Listen along here while you view!

I've had a great break being at home for a month, and am going to be a little homesick when I get back to school. However, I'm looking forward to layering pieces for the colder weather and all the fun plans I have for the next quarter with my friends and school!

The warm weather keeps returning to California, so today I had the chance to style my striped dress from Anthropologie that I hadn't worn yet. I think it paired perfectly with these black leather ankle boots I picked up at Target this weekend for just 8 bucks! I kept the look simple, and just added a statement cuff to add another pop of black to the outfit.

I love the unexpected pop of color in these shoulder buttons. These kinds of details are what I love about Anthropologie clothing.
