IMG_4470 I have a bit of a love affair with this building. I drive past it twice a day going to and coming from work, and always sneak a peek as I go by. Yesterday I just had to stop and get a closer look. I love the blue-toned glass front and brick facade. Yeah...I'm basically obsessed with this little structure. But I'll have more on that in another post! As for my outfit, I loved how the rugged exterior went well with my utilitarian vest and purse. Although this purse might look like a girly piece, I consider it utilitarian because it is roomy and has so many pockets, allowing me to tote my DSLR and sketchbook wherever I go.

For work I wore just this dress with a pair of silver Toms and it just felt way too girly for me. I threw on my vest and boots and soon as I got home. Although I couldn't wear this vest to work so I had an exception, I always try remember to stay true to myself and my personal style. It will give you a lot more confidence when you're just being you!

"Six Feet Under The Stars"

IMG_1355 I have been wearing this handmade tee non-stop lately, and when I saw that today's #coasttocoastchallenge was "neon" I had to dress it up and throw on my favorite hot pink crossbody. I'm also dreaming about fancier outfits ever since I found these ankle strap heels at Target the other day, which you may have seen if you follow me on Instagram. I found them for $10 and they are to die for! These shoes are so comparable to many others I've seen for a way higher price, such as these ones on blogger WeWoreWhat for $300+.

I decided to go for a throwback for today's outfit, and chose "Six Feet Under the Stars" by All Time Low. You can say all you want about this band, but I needed a song with some pop to compliment the pop of neon in my purse. Listen along below while you view!

OOTD_89 + Haul Video!

DSC_0859 I have finally found a pair of camo skinnies! I was searching everywhere for some and I'm glad I waited because I really like the detailing on these ones from Forever 21. These pants are really lightweight which is going to be great for the warmer months ahead. Since there is a stripe down the side, I wanted to pair them with a dressier shoe for a sportswear look. These shoes have a bit of a heel so it achieved that for me, and I definitely had in mind some fancier camo look such as this one that I love!

OOTD 73_"The Future Freaks Me Out"

DSC_0409 I picked up these red (pink?) shoes at Target yesterday for only 10 bucks! I knew I had a blazer in my closet that matched perfectly, but honestly didn't plan on wearing them together. However, when I came home and tried them on, I decided they would look great together for a graphic look. Adding this printed blouse was the perfect way to make this outfit bold. I finished with clear jewelry that wouldn't compete with the loud colors and prints.

The track for today's outfit is "The Future Freaks Me Out" by Motion City Soundtrack in honor of the announcement that they'll be on Warped Tour this summer. So. Excited. Listen along below while you view!

This outfit would look great with a plain white blouse as well, and would be a good way to pair all of your basics together for one great outfit!
