What I Wore: to my volunteer orientation

Do you ever have those outfit ideas floating around in your head that you aren’t entirely committed to? I have them pretty often. I like to pick short bursts of time to try out the outfit idea and still be noncommittal about it. A whole 8 hour work day in an outfit I’m unsure of really doesn’t sound like fun to me.

I had just the occasion recently to try out an outfit I was on the fence about. My 2 hour long orientation at the museum I’ll be volunteering for. I’m incredibly excited both about the volunteer position, and after all is said and done the outfit it’s self.

Don’t tell Kh, I had to rearrange the couch to take the photo.

Shirt: Buffalo Exchange. I like to call it my Betty Draper shirt
Tank top underneath: H&M
Pants: “jeggings” from Target

Blazer: H&M

Boots: shh Walmart
Earrings: Kh gave them to me for Xmas!

One of my favorite parts about the shirt would have to be the buttons. They are quite ornate and detailed.

Overall I was a big fan of my first outfit with this new blouse. I can’t wait to warmer weather to come up with more outfits to incorporate it into. Maybe even find a long necklace to add to it. Spring clothing shopping.. I see you happening very soon.

While I’m Away: OOTD

: bag : necklace : flats : belt : maxi dress :
: bracelet : ring : cardigan :

Is it spring yet? I’m seeing the most adorable maxi dresses and accessories for warm weather. Especially this printed maxi dress from Urban Outfitters (pictured above). Give me it already! This is only the beginning of my spring outfit wishlist.

While I know we’ve completely lucked out this winter, I can’t help but want to press fast forward and have it be time for picnics and sunshine!

OOTD: ModCloth Outfit Wishlist

For today’s OOTD, I decided to try a different route. It’s been rainy, snowy, and generally icky most days here in Boston which hasn’t exactly put me in the best “dress for success” attitude. Sad, yes. So this week I’m putting all my energy into getting inspired!

One of my all time favorite clothing websites would have to be Mod Cloth. Their dresses are to die for, and the accessories? Forget about it! Most of them sell out in no time flat. I spent at least 2 hours window shopping on their site last night.

And from it, here are two outfits I would die to be sporting right now.

1.Very important date necklace 2. Wheat Field Day Dress 3. Slacks are the new Black Jeans 4. Spruce up your Style Boot

1. More Black Coffee Please leggings 2. Candy Apple Gloss Flat 3. The Braided Bunch Belt 4. My Deer Antler Sally Necklace 5. Magicicada Earrings 6. Happy Guppie Satchel 7. Haute Dotty Dress

Spring, you can not come soon enough!

OOTD: What I wore to the Museum

Ok, so this post is me kind of, sort of, cheating a little bit. I wore this outfit the weekend before last when Kh, my brother and myself went to the Harvard Museum of Natural History.

It was a beautiful, sunny day outside but still a little chilly.

Coat: H&M 
Dress: Buffalo Exchange
Leggings: Lululemon
Boots: Target

Scarf: Target
Necklace: Forever 21

Hat: handemade by yours truly 
Ring: Gift from Kh

Buffalo Exchange is one of my favorite places to shop second hand. I buy a good portion of my clothes from the one in my neighborhood. They have everything from accessories, to sweater dresses. If you get the chance, you should definitely check one out. They have them all over the country.

OOTD: A Very Chevron Wednesday

Top: Christmas gift from Kh (Old Navy)
Cardigan: Thrifted
Pants: Target
Shoes: Kmart

Scarf: Target
Hat: Handmade by me

Let me introduce you to my new favorite top. I can’t get enough of this chevron tank top Kh got me for Christmas. If only we weren’t on the cusp of winter, I’d wear this shirt every day!

Oh chevron, my weakness for you grows every day.

OOTD: What I’m Wearing Wednesday

The weather outside is slowly getting colder and colder. While it would be silly of me to complain, considering we’ve made it in Boston until (almost) the end of December with no snow, I’m still slightly mourning  fall weather.

Winter won’t stop me from layering my fall favorites!

Leggings: Lululemon
Top: Forever 21
Cardigan: H&M

This top I found at Forever 21, for a buy one get one free sale. The top? $12

Boots: Old Navy
Necklace: Forever 21
Earrings: Kris Nations

I found these boots at a fall blowout sale at Old Navy. $20. Total score!

This is definitely one of my favorite throw together outfits as of recently. I’m trying not to live out of the boots. It’s been hard, considering they are so comfy!

OOTD: What I Wore On The Weekend

Now, I’ll tell you right off the bat I’m doing a little cheating on this post. I have a terrible routine that always consists of me trying on 3 different outfits before I decide which one I like the most. I often will even go to bed with thoughts of outfits that lurk in my closet to avoid the morning stress of “what to wear.” Strange, yes. And no wonder I have dreams of the closet monster!

When all is said and done, I’m a rather simple dresser. I will admit I stick to my all black wardrobe pretty religiously. I only really stray from that path with a few colored accessories, scarves, tights, cardigans. And of course, nail polish. I like to incorporate different textures into my black clothes. Quilted tights, fringe (yes!), and patterns. I’m a sucker for black and white patterns.

I digress! Back to that part where I’m cheating.. I actually wore this particular outfit on Saturday when we took the pups for a walk in the park. It was pretty chilly and I later regretted not wearing my hat (that I left in the car) but I got over it quickly. Forgive the quality, I also didn’t plan and only had my iPhone on me.

Jacket – H&M from last year
Jeans – Target (fit 4 for curvy hips!)
Shirt – forever21
Shoes – Kmart ($7 on black friday)
Sunglasses – Target
Scarf – Target
Necklace – forever21
Bag – H&M

Earrings – forever21

I wonder what I’ll wear tomorrow..

Until the next outfit!
