Blue print dress

I’m caught in between wishing warm weather would stay, and a slight transition into fall.

Let’s face it cooler weather and shorter days are among us, but there’s no need to hide away, that perfect dress is waiting for you. For example I’ve dying over this Blue Print Dress, from Zaful.

I’ve been into the color blue lately (as you can see from my last two posts). So this dress caught my eye instantly because of the print is simply subtle. I can see this piece paired with heel sandals or ankle booties, which is more appropriate for fall (keep the toes warm). Another “cool” thing about this dress is that it gives me the boho feels. I want to be able to experiment with different styles and lately I’ve been too afraid to just change it up. Sometimes I struggle to define who I am in terms of my clothes, but this dress allows me to express who I am in many ways. Yay for versatility.

How to wear this blue printed dress?

Blue Printed Dress

Because I am aiming for the boho look I’ve decided to keep warm weather for longer and pair this dress with heel sandals, cute sunglasses, a double necklace, and a big bag with a fringe. These accessories help compliment the dress in a light way. The glasses and the necklace aren’t bold and won’t distract from the pretty pattern of the dress. In addition the bag and heels join forces to both help compliment the over all look.

The entire look can be found at Zaful. You can click the link to visit each item.

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.

Faux Pas

For as long as I can remember black tones just didn’t go well with brown tones. It was a faux pas, you just didn’t do it. Needless to say that I have followed this act until recently. Black is my favorite to color to wear, but as of late, brown has been attracting me. So because of this I’ve purchased a lot of brown toned heels, which according to me go with everything and anything.

I’ve decided to ditch the fact that these two colors simply can’t be friends and I’ve accepted to embrace how wonderful I seem to feel in both at the same time. This top, although not entirely brown, gives into the black shorts and brown heels. It’s a perfect match. I found it at TJMAXX for a mere $12.99. This top, off the shoulder, is perfect for evening out unwanted tan lines. I’m still working on mine. As always.

#3 Living with you

I wasn’t able to post about an outfit today because I had after school conferences.

From time-to-time I’m busy talking to student’s parents, but often not there’s some down time. That’s lovely at times. Because I’m having some time to think I want to share with you all what’s been on my heart lately.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I’ve realized (not that I didn’t already know) just how much Micah has touched my heart. Without back tracking to the past; I can honestly say with all certainty that, my bear, has healed all wounds. It didn’t take him long as every time I gaze into his deep blue eyes I’m fascinated by his being. He makes me feel secure, even when we fight. He makes me feel beautiful, even without makeup on. He makes me feel smart, even when I can’t remember the multiplication table of 7. He makes me feel special, even when everything is going against me or us.

He’s probably going to kill me when he reads this post, but even so he makes me feel confident enough to express who I am.

*Weather update, cause I guess I’m that obsessed now, today was in the low 30s. Tomorrow we will be the 50s. Friday it will be a warm 80! Sheesh.
