Back to school

I have a couple exciting things coming up for the blog! I have my first sponsored post coming soon, courtesy of Sole Society and I am working on my first blog giveaway for when I reach 100 Bloglovin followers! I am at 90 now, so if you want to see a giveaway on my blog soon, follow me on Bloglovin’!


*Jacket: Marshalls. *Dress: Target. *Scarf & Shoes: Urban Outfitters. *Purse, Beanie, Sunglasses & Ring: Forever 21

Wow, Forever 21 overload? Not really, I could create 50 more outfits with just Forever 21 items. It’s the first store I go to. Lately, I’ve been noticing I’m not as into it as I used to be. It might be because my tastes are changing or they are slacking in the design department. Or that I’m old. Either way, I still make it my first stop because it’s affordable and they usually have great accessories.


Speaking of great accessories (Whoa, look out – transitions!), this ring is legit in so many ways. What’s better than a mustache ring (besides a mustache on a cute boy – ahem – looking at you Ugly Mug Photography!). I initially was going to buy it for my sister to put in her Christmas stocking, but could not find her ring size, so instead, the boy put it in my stocking. I think that’s a fair compromise. I did end up finding her a mustache necklace, so she wins too.


We went to my high school for the back drop of these photos. It was cool being back there. Few things have changed really. But for once, I was the one hanging out on the senior steps! The senior steps were the steps down into the quad where the “cool” people sat during break and lunch. I wasn’t necessarily “un-cool”, in fact, I was friends with a lot of people that sat on the senior steps, but the popular group just wasn’t my scene. I’m more low key.


Too bad I was a horrific dresser in high school. If I knew how to dress back then, I might have not been turned down when I asked my crush to junior prom. Yeah, that happened. And yeah, it was as embarrassing as it sounds. But then we went bowling instead. So, not a bad night actually.



One more shot of this bad ass ring.

    Congratulations! 😀

    This is a great look. I especially love the pattern in the scarf. And I”m with you, something has been off with Forever21 for me lately too. I’m pretty sure it’s because I’m getting old and have started favoring more high end, quality pieces. Which my wallet is not happy about.

  3. Cheryl said:

    Love seeing you in a dress!

    • Thanks! Yeah it seems like the majority of bloggers live in dresses, and then, there’s me haha

  4. Linda said:

    Awesome layering in this outfit! I love your style. That mustache ring is just too cute ❤ Love it!
    Also, congrats on the success you're experiencing 🙂 Yay, first sponsored post!

    Congrats on your first sponsored post!

    And that ring is pretty bad ass – I always put rings on in the morning, but they typically come off within 3 minutes of getting to work, because I find it difficult to type while wearing them.

    I know what you mean about F21! I used to get the majority of my stuff there, but I’ve been shopping there less and less as I get older. They have cute stuff, but honestly, as I’ve learned more about clothing, I’ve realized how low quality some of their stuff is. Don’t get me wrong – some of their stuff is awesome! But there is also a reason it’s all so cheap! Besides, *everyone* shops there – and I hate running into people who are wearing the same thing as me!

    Congrats on the sponsor and all.

    Your ring is SERIOUSLY bad ass. I really want it!

    You look great on those steps. It’s like you belong there or something! I bet it took guts to ask him to the prom. Bowling does sound better, you’re right.

    Your outfit is amazing! I wish we had Forever 21 here. I went there a lot when I was living in San Francisco. And in Korea. But no F21 in England. Boo hiss!
