OOTD_91 "Cactus in the valley"

DSC_0917 I've recently found that I'm having trouble making my outfits interesting and have depth as the days get warmer because I'm not able to layer as much as I'd like. The perfect solution to this problem is a vest. The cut of it still leaves you cool, but you've added some dimension to your outfit as well. I have 4 vests in my closet (3 of them DIYed!) that I think will be getting a lot of wear in the coming months.

The track for today's outfit post is "Cactus in the valley" by Lights, whose music I have featured on here before in this outfit post. Listen along here while you view!

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!
