Light green

Today’s post is later than usual. I’ve had quite a day. I spent most of my morning organizing and cleaning. My afternoon was spent catching up with the sister MariAntonia from my church. The evening was spent running errands. All to which I came home to my dog barking loud and with distraught. I approached her just to come and find a huge snake coiled up ready to attack her. My father came out, shovel in hand, and spiked the animal. Whew, close one.

What I wore today was this top from Maurices. In Dodge City, there is hardly anywhere decent to shop. You have Maurices and the Buckle. I alternate from time-to-time which of these stores I actually enter, as most of my shopping is done online. As of late Maurices has tickled my fancy and I’ve gone on a  bit of a shopping spree there. This top is one of my many great finds I’m excited to share with you all.

What I like the most about this piece is the gray and green tones. These are two of my favorite colors. It’s delicate and cool. It flows. It goes well with a lot of already favorite pieces. It’s perfect.

More on this look towards the bottom. As always.

Jump on this

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.

Tiny Flowers

Soccer season as come to an end and summer is right around the corner. All of this can only mean one thing, down time. This is a good thing. I want to focus a little bit more on my blog and I’m also excited to be able to journal what’s been happening lately.

So this shoot was from what seems like ages ago, but it was taken when it appeared spring was coming, of course in Kansas one can never be too sure. It was a windy day, but honestly for the first time the sun was warm. I usually like days like that.

Not being prepared, with my sense of weather, I wore this green top I often wear to work. I like it because you can tie it around the neck. It just gives off a work-place vibe. The jeans are sort of my favorite textured bottoms. Trust me, I’m not as adventurous when it comes to my bottoms, but when I saw these jeans, with tiny flowers I had to get them. They are from Target. I really enjoy the way the fit and also the way they absolutely change my outfits.

You might also notice my heel-sandals. I got this pair in nude because I plan on wearing them with everything! So far they’ve been so versatile I can hardly stop myself from jumping up and down. Note, they will be on here a lot! Stay tune.

As always.

Jumping in

The wind is probably blowing at 40 mph, no joke. It’s so insane we are under a Red Flag warning. But, I found this little corner to take these pictures because I needed to share with you all my romper and of course these killer heels.

I haven’t been able to do a lot of running lately,  but heels always make a girls’ legs, pop out. I love these heels so much, I bought them a long time ago from Lulus. I enjoy the color pop and how great they stand out against this romper. I can’t wait for even warmer weather so that I can sport them more often.

I hope you enjoy this post until I see you again, on Monday. Have a great one. As always.

Green for life

3

I know it’s a little late, but I wanted to share this post before the day is officially over.

This week has been a little rough, at our district we lost two middle school students. It was tough on everyone, but today I told my students that they needed to live a life that was fruitful, because they each had a purpose so special and unique it would be a shame not see it through. I’d do anything for my students, in fact, I told them I’d fight any fight for them. Honestly why wouldn’t I? They are my well being, my everyday, my tomorrow.

Since yesterday I wore a touch of green, I decided that today, I would promote life by wearing green. It was such a beautiful day, despite the tragedies. However, this green dress made me feel full of life, warmth, and it gave me vibrant vibes. I styled this outfit with a black sweater and combat boots, you know to fight on through. The cutout in the back is my favorite thing about this dress. It’s fun.

Today if it’s in your heart, pray for the families of these two students, they lost their lives in different ways for different reasons. However the pain they left behind is equally damaging.

Think of their families during this time. As always.

See through

1-1

This is my last post from my past Zara purchase. This top. Let’s marvel at it. It’s so pretty, delicate, and chic. Aside from wearing black and purple, green is my favorite color to sport. I was thrilled when I came about this top because that splash of color. The design of the top is impressive and unique. It screams old Spanish. Because the top was so delicate I decided to give it a street vibe by pairing it with jeans and black stilettos.

Again, I’ll be wearing it on the regular, especially towards the summer weather.

I can’t believe that in 3 weeks, the start of the last quarter of school will begin, and summer is right around the corner. Yikes.

For now, I’m going to enjoy these unexpected warmer days.

Utilitarian

The cold weather calls for a bit of comfort and a lot of utility. I love this jacket, but I can only wear a little bit into December. During the noon hours it’s perfect, but at night, forget it. I freeze. However one of the things I like to wear with this light jacket is a hooded sweater. This gives it some personality.

Something interesting about this look is the fact that the boyfriend (he now has a face, scroll on down) sort-of-kind of matched me when I wore this. He also wore a stripped sweater, similar to mine and an army green vest, similar to the jacket. We’ve “matched” twice before. We don’t plan it so we sure turn red with embarrassment every time we do this. It’s quiet funny yet romantic.

Tomorrow is my last day of school then break. I need one as much I love to work. I’m just ready to re-charge the batteries.
