Always and Again: Two Way

I’ve spent the majority of the day browsing through my blog. It really came to my surprise how much I’ve changed. Not in a major way. Not in the way that I feel I’m a different person entirely. But in the way this blog has evolved. It’s been such a learning experience getting to see how much my style has changed. This blog has continued to be a place where I can express who I am through my clothes. Some of my posts have been so ridiculous and I’ve worn some questionable items, but it’s nothing I regret. A major thing that I’ve notice is that I feel more confident, secure, and even adventurous in how I dress and express myself. Even how I pose has improved. There are still so many things I want to do with this blog and I’m really excited to see where it goes and what I learn. I love to write. I love photography. I love clothes. So for now, I’ll enjoy everything this blog to offer me. An escape.

Now as I was looking around, I came to discover some pieces that I’ve worn on here multiple times and I thought I’d share how I repeat them. It’s been awhile since I’ve done this series. The main thing with my clothes is that I only buy items I know I’m going to wear more than three times. Check out these two items and how I’ve styled them. Which is your favorite?

4 Long Plaid

My long plaid shirt from Forever 21. I wore it in the winter time underneath my favorite leather jacket for a cool girl vibe. That’s how I ultimately feel about this shirt. Cool. Just recently I showed it off a bit more by wearing nothing but it around town. Again, I felt cool.

5 Green Jumpsuit

This is my favorite jumpsuit because the color is so neat. The first time I wore this green jumpsuit from Forever 21 was in the fall. I paired it with booties and my fuzzy jacket. Lately I layered it with a white t-shirt and sandals for an every-day-look. It’s just everything. I can’t wait to wear this thing again.

I’ve got a weekend packed of cleaning and organizing before Micah and I head out to Mexico for our mission trip. We are both really excited about it. I can’t wait to share with you all how I’m packing. Stay tune. Have a good week. I’ll see you all on Monday again. As always.

Long and Plaid

I can be into plaid shirts living out in the country, so naturally when I saw this long and plaid shirt from Forever 21, I had to snag it. I enjoy every aspect of this shirt because it can be worn so many different ways. From a unique aspect, I believe that the length helps separate it from the traditional plaid shirts. In addition the color gives off more of a rock in roll vibe versus a country take.

Aside from that, a tiny victory is my hair length. I’ve changed my hair routine and since then I’ve seen some minor results. I’m pleased with it. I’ll share the secret soon.

Micah and I are going to the pool tomorrow and I’ll be sharing what I wore to the water park tomorrow on the blog. Stay tune. As always.

Plaid

Today I wore this plaid shirt. At first glance it doesn’t seem that special, specific, darling, eye-opening, but it’s comfortable, versatile, gentle, and homey.

Those are the pieces that I love the most. The ones I can wear time-and-time again. I’d love to say that my closet is full of mystery- fashion-forward pieces, but I’m just a regular Kansas girl showcasing what I’ve got to work with and that my friends is a plain.

An occasionally some fitted jeans and flats.

It’s a triple-threat you can’t ignore.

What’s your most comfortable piece of clothing? As always.

Today was the last official day of semester 1. I’ve been having so much teaching that I just can’t believe how fast year 4 is flying. It seems like just yesterday was the first day of school and now we’re halfway through. Yikes!

Winter break is always my favorite break though, not just because it’s festive, but because I don’t have to travel around as much in the cold weather. The cold weather doesn’t motivate me in the least. What’s worse is that tomorrow we are expected to receive some heavy snow! Gasp.

Meanwhile, school’s out, and the first thing I did was jump into some leggings to be with cozy with. I had a couple errands to run before I couldn’t stand being cold any longer (I truly am I cold wimp).

I’ve been falling in love with purpose bag packs. This one is from Target. I bought it a few years back so that I could haul my camera around. Today it serves the purpose of carrying all these other unnecessary items; like store receipts.

Keep warm, friends, as always

The weather has been extremely nice to us, today we hit some high temperatures, meaning I could show off some skin. But, not too much.

One thing I’m not too fond of is the trail the snow leaves behind when it starts to melt. It isn’t pretty. But, I’ve learned to deal with it using my old (very old) combat boots. I’ve been wearing these things like crazy. They are so worn out, I’ll have to replace them soon, even though I don’t want to.

Rain or shine, dirt or snow; these boots have been with me. It’s the last sign of them because I’m thinking I’m gifting myself new ones this Christmas.

In the mean you’ll tire of seeing them on here.

*Also, don’t you just love the long plaid shirt and leather jacket combo?
