It’s been awhile since I’ve worn this jumper. When I first saw it at Forever 21, I completely, and without thinking got it. Since then I’ve only worn it a handful of times because while it was a great find, it was difficult for me to find different ways to wear this piece.
Today, I decide it to wear a basic white t-shirt underneath it in order to give it a street style vibe. It was perfect for running errands. I also paired it with my day 1 sandals from the Buckle. I got these baby’s way back in the day. I’ve taken such good care of them that to this day, they still keep me satisfied.
In contrast, I wore these bright coral ear rings from the Buckle in order to add variation. This color addition added a unique pop to this outfit. I rather enjoy when colors make a surprise good mix.
What do you think of this color combination? Happy Tuesday, as always.
The moment, I saw this dress I fell in love it mainly because it reminded me of Wednesday Addams. And well, who doesn’t love a good Wednesday dress in lieu of Halloween?
Be afraid, be very afraid.
Outfit: Dress from Stefano Di Romo catalog, boots from JCPenny’s, and glasses The Buckle.
It may not seem like a big deal. But, ever since the “break up,” I re-vamped my personal style. It has been such a blessing because it literally has made me feel like a new woman. New in the sense, that I’m “me” again. Single and ready for the adventure. One small (major for me) change was my hairstyle. During the prime stages of my heartbreak, I felt dull, sad, blank. But, the re-building stage worked wonders and the post aftermath leaves me feeling fresh, full, bright. It’s AMAZING.
Today, instead of complaining about how long my front bangs are getting. I parted my hair down the middle and went bangless. I used to think I looked terrible with my hair parted center. But today, I looked at myself in the mirror and said to myself, “Aley girl, what are you hiding? You rock.” So good-bye bangs– for now.
Like I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been reading the “Single Woman” by Mandy Hale. The book has been so helpful. I reached part 5 yesterday, the “letting go and moving on” stage of the book. This portion talked about thanking those who have existed our lives and finding the “good” in good-bye. I made a small mental list and realized there is so many good things I overlooked.
And while, saying good-bye maybe hard, whether it’s to bangs, relationships, those really expensive shoes you can’t purchase just yet, life continues to revolve. To move. To shift. And it’s all for the good.
Outfit: Dress and sweater from Forever21, shoes from Justfab.com, glasses from the Buckle, and the ring was gifted.
Sorry about my absence. Life is crazy. My weekend was too much fun, the fact being– I went shopping. I picked up this shimmery gold skirt. I paired it with black tones to make it pop. Oh and the heels, ah dore! I have a lot of good friends, but I think these shoes are going to be spending a lot of time with me, especially during the winter.
Outfit: skirt and sunglasses from Charlotte Russe, T from the Buckle, tights and ring from Forever21, and heel booties from PacSun.
