{OOTD} Birthday Edition

Here is my birthday suit that I wore Wednesday for my birthday! I have to say I was a bit reluctant walking out of the house because it's not something that I would normally wear, but as I was driving, I realized, it's my birthday, I think this outfit is cute, so I can do whatever I want!

Striped tee: Gap
Skinnies: Abercrombie
Vest: The Limited

It's my birthday!

Today, the 23rd of January, I am 23 years old. My golden birthday! It has been so wonderful, spending time with Jason and my parents, and some time with the good Lord in bible study. I am truly blessed! Not to mention getting to celebrate it with some very thoughtful gifts, Brewster singing Happy Birthday to me, and delicious food my mom made! Homemade lasagna and red velvet cheesecake! Yummy!

Brewsty Cat

A year ago yesterday we brought this little guy home from the shelter. We thought we saved him, (turns out we actually did!) but he became a lot more than a pet to have around. I don't know what we would do without him, he makes us laugh every. single. day. just by being his little "cat" self. There are times when I would argue to the death he's not a cat. He's the most loving and intelligent cat I've ever seen and he's fat! So happy birthday Brewster, thank you for being the best birthday present I've ever gotten!

Happy birthday Brewsty, we love you!

Winter Mint

This winter I am in love with the color mint. Nails, clothes, accessories, everything. Pastels are no longer only for Easter, they're for every season, it just depends on how you wear it! Here's how I'd like to wear mint this winter.

I should do OOTD (outfit of the day) posts more often, I love them! So today was the first day of classes and it's always exciting, getting closer to being done, especially when you can see the light at the end of the tunnel but depressing being done with break! Double edged sword my friends.

I hope everyone enjoyed some 70 degree weather this weekend like I did and soaked it up before the freezing weather that took its place! This creates the dilemma, how will you dress for freezing weather outside but 75 degrees inside? Dress too warm you end up sweating 3 steps into the building or risk freezing to death. Solution: layers, layers, layers. This was what I wore today! Pretty close to the outfit I posted last week!

Back to School

Sorry y'all, I know I've neglected the blog this week but I've been sick with something short of the flu! Good news, I'm back on my feet and feel much much better! All thanks to The good Lord!

Everyone wants to look good first day back to school but finding an outfit always seems so difficult. Having a great outfit seems to set the tone for the rest of the semester for me. If I walk into a class in a well put together outfit, I feel confident and fabulous. And I think everyone can admit they want others to sit there and think, "Wow, she looks amazing!" Right? And I'm by no means saying to walk in in heels, a dress, and costume jewelry, but that having the perfectly layered and comfortable outfit that looks like you put tons of thought into it can go a lonnnng way, and here's what I'm picturing for my first day back!

What better way to start off with a new name then with a post about it! I don't think you can ever go wrong with a good plaid (yes, there are bad plaids out there), especially during the cold months.  These are just a few of my favorites from J. Crew, Gap, and Abercrombie & Fitch.
