Wishful Wednesday: Spring time outfits

The weather here has been absolutely perfect! For my line of work that is. In the 50’s and overcast. Ever so lovely!

But I suppose it’s not all that lovely when you want to wear Spring dresses, sandals and get ready for Summer. Last week was just that, warm and Spring like. Borderline Summer weather even. With warm weather come the warm weather outfits. I have slowly begun to stock up on just that. I had to return some things to Old Navy the other day and ended up getting two things to replace it, and a credit back. I love being cheap.. er.. thrifty!

A simple black halter dress for $9. You like my super obvious tan line?

Another simple black dress for $12.

I’m getting much better at returning clothes I’m not at least 95% in love with once I get them home. They end up sitting in my closet or on the floor. I have a strange habit of not taking tags off clothes until I wear them for the first time. I won’t even tell you how many shirts still have the tags on them in my closet.

With all this talk of outfits, I couldn’t help myself and had to put together 2 Spring time finds of outfits. I’ve done this a few times before, and well, I must admit I’m a window shopper to the extreme.

:: shoes: sandal via dsw ::
:: dress: woodblock artist dress via modcloth ::
:: necklace: petal to the metal necklace via modcloth ::
:: earrings: marrakech your eye earrings via modcloth ::

Now this outfit is my favorite, and when I showed Kh the only reply I got was “So very you.” Which.. I’d have to agree. Others may like a bunch of floral prints for Spring.. but I like my solid black.

:: dress: holiday in paradise via modcloth ::
:: shoes: sandal via dsw (can you tell I love these sandals?) ::
:: earrings: textured triangle earrings via forever 21 ::
:: necklace: geo accent necklace via forever 21 ::
:: bag: studded fringe hobo bag via forever 21 (I have one just like it from dsw but you can never have enough fringe bags, amiright?) ::

This weekend I’ll be on the hunt for the perfect thrifty outfit, so watch out for that next week. Do you have any Spring time/seasonally appropriate wear that you’re drooling over lately? Share it with me!

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.

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!
