OOTD: Uh Huh Honey

(Hat: Etsy ValDesignsOnline)

I keep calling this hat my condescending southern ball cap. I’m kind of in love with it, of course it’s something you can only wear to certain places, but grocery shopping is more fun in it. I’ve started to wear hats more in general, or at least I’m trying to, I keep buying them then wearing them every now and then. I’m working on it.

Hey y’all, I lied in that last post when I said I was almost better, because here we are two weeks later and I’m finally trying to say it again. Let’s hope it’s true this time- I’ve been fighting Lyme Disease for four months now. It’s a really really terrible illness, full of painful body and joint aches, high fevers, exhaust, dizzy spells, nausea, oh, yeah and those sinus infections I had. So, I’m really praying that we’re done with that now.

I figured I must feel better, because I took time to put makeup on today, which hasn’t happened all summer. And my mom has stopped asking me what I need every five minutes, which means she thinks I’m well enough to get it myself.

But anyways, more outfit details below, because you can’t see much of it from the overall shot!

OOTD: The Dress of my Dreams

IMG_4802( Dress: Anthropologie // Sandals: Target // Earrings: Gift)

Do you ever find a item of clothing that you love with everything in you… but then you look at the price and are reminded why you never go into that store to begin with. It happens about every time I walk into Anthropologie. I love, love, love the store, but I can’t really afford it. But I go in anyways, and this time I was in luck, because I was armed with small gift card and graced with a sweet sales lady who let me use my birthday month discount even though it was the month after my birthday month.

It was still more than I should spent, and as I swiped my card I had second thoughts. Yet I brought it home and when I put it on for the first time I realized that I had a great piece that I probably would always be in love with. I wore it to a business meeting and I’ll wear it to go get dinner with the girls. So maybe I didn’t make such a bad choice after all. After all everyone’s all about the slow fashion movement now and making bigger purchases that will last. Maybe it’s time for me to completely get on board with that.

I was going to name this outfit of the day “Girls night out” or something along those lines. But when I stepped outside to take the picture and then go to my girls night, I realized that I had just put on dark blue jeans in the 100 degree heat. Maybe not my best move, but hey, I didn’t want to wear a skirt and I can’t get into the heels with shorts trend.

OOTD: T-Shirt Dresses and Magnolia Trees

I’ve been on the look out for a good t-shirt dress for what feels like forever. All the ones I seem to find are too tight and form fitting. Then I stumbled across this one while shopping with a friend. I actually bought it with Christmas money I had been hoarding in the back pocket of my wallet. I guess I was just waiting on the right thing!

After I purchased it I went to the brands website and bought a tank dress along with a swing tank for the brand as well. It just all fit that well!

It’s been a wild few weeks here at the end of the semester, so I’m sorry I haven’t been super frequent. The good (and exciting) news is that today I finished my last day of college courses ever. Now all I have are some virtual assignment submissions standing between me and graduation… oh and that big presentation tomorrow.. but classes? Yep, they’re over for good! Someone asked me if it was bittersweet. I was happy to report that at this point it’s just sweet. On to the next thing–
