Playing Hooky

Technically I’m not playing hooky because my school actually has Cinco De Mayo off, but sometimes I like to feel that I am capable of such craziness and whimsy. 😛 And if you’re reading this and thoughts of jealousy arises because you’re in the office right now, know that I am at Starbucks right now grading 150 math tests and lesson planning for the week. I’m in the same boat as you are. 🙂

Anyways, here’s my casual outfit for the day. There’s nothing like throwing on some boyfriend jeans and a white tee for a day off. Comfy, casual, but not sweats.

You have no idea how long I have been trying to find a hat that I like, as well as one that fits my head in which I have this conceived notion that it is too big and oddly shaped to be stuffed in a hat. Yes, pretty ridiculous, but so true! Luckily I was able to snag this beauty off the sales rack without having to wrestle anyone for it.

I’m not usually the one to match my shirt and shoe color, but today I decided to push that rule out and go a little crazy. I mean it is spring break after all. And yes, this is probably the most crazy action I am going to do this week. Hm, no wonder my students think I live under a rock.

MIX MATCH

Spring-a-ling

{ New season, new look! I hope you all like the new layout! }

So finally spring is here! The sun is out, the temperature is slowly rising, and coats and sweaters are slowly hiding away. Oh how I miss them already…

Psych! 😛 I do love being able to wear dress without tights!

It was still a little chilly to go sleeveless on this dress, but too warm to put a sweater over it, so the next best option? CHAMBRAY.

Red and Brown

Yes, I bought something, but luckily it’s technically something old and used, but still in the utmost prime condition! Therefore, I have yet to break my New Year’s resolution.

STORY TIME: I went into Crossroads (a thrift/consignment shop) hoping to find an outfit for this secret event that I was invited to…Oh heck, let’s be honest, I was just trying to satisfy my shopping crave! Haha. Anyways, I was about to pay for a couple of items when I saw these amazing brown boots which were exactly what I was looking for —chocolate brown, with a heel, and is versatile. Tried them on, fell in love, you know the drill. Then I discovered they were Loeffler Randall boots. I apologize ahead of time if this discredits me as a fashion blogger, but I have never heard of Loeffler Randall before. Whipped out my smart phone to see what the damage usually is and found out their boots usually costs a whopping of over $600! Well, guess what price I got them for? A mere $60. Not bad for a pair of barely used, good quality, leather boots! 🙂

Grey and Simple

Thrift Style Thursday : Favorite Pick

Well, I just thrifted this and so I don’t think I would consider it my favorite yet, but I do REALLY like this dress so I just HAD to style it for this week. It’s just a simple grey knit dress and I just wanted to keep it just that. Threw on a sweater, tights, and boots because it was cold and added a touch of bling to dress it up a bit. Simply comfortable.

By the way, I had a momentary laps of wanting to chop off my hair today. Phew, didn’t go through with it. 🙂 Instead of making a hair change, I decided to go with the lip color which was an easier adjustment and less of a commitment.

Pink and Orange

Hm, I’m usually not the one to wear midi skirts due to my short stature, but this one grew on me. My aunt decided that she didn’t want this anymore so I took it because I saw the potential. You agree?

Tips on wearing a Midi Skirt:
1. Make sure you wear it high waisted.
2. When choosing a top, make sure it still accentuates the waist by choosing a slim fitting top or even with a cropped jacket.
3. Add a belt for extra pizazz and shape.
4. Heels are necessary (especially for us height-challenged folks).
5. Should hit between the knee and mid calf, depending on your height.
