Fourth of July OOTD!

Hey everyone,

One of my favorite holidays is coming up–the Fourth of July! I have always loved checking out fireworks and attending cook outs with friends and family to celebrate America’s birthday. This year I was very upset to find out that I’ll be spending the day time this Thursday, stuck inside, working… BUT! I won’t let that stop me from getting festive! Check out this red, white, and blue outfit I plan on wearing to work!

Enjoying Spring

springtime

 

After what seems like an endless winter, spring finally seems to be in the air. The surest sign for me? I don’t have to wear a jacket anymore! I am beyond happy to start breaking out the shorts and sandals. The flowers are starting to come up and yesterday (much to my delight) was the first day I was able to sit out on the quad with my homework. Getting some sun felt SO good.

Yesterday, my boyfriend reluctantly agreed to be featured in an outfit of the day post. He just looked so casually springy that I had to share. So, here’s what we were wearing:

On Matt: shirt, Lands’ End Canvas; shorts, American Eagle; boat shoes, Dockers.

On me: sunglasses, Maui Jim; shirt, J.Crew Factory; shorts, Old Navy; boat shoes, Sperry.

How have you been enjoying the weather?

Business Casual

Since last Thursday, I have attended a Leadership Conference in Washington D.C., dressed up for a Phi Sigma Sigma sorority chapter meeting, had a job interview, and tomorrow I’ll be spending my day at Jury Duty! Needless to say, over the last six days, ‘business casual’ outfits are all I’ve been wearing. I love getting dressed up, and all of these excuses to do so have allowed me to get a lot of use out of all my skirts, khakis, dresses, and dress pants, and create some cute, professional outfits! Need help getting your ‘business casual’ look together? Check out my favorite combinations below!

OOTD — 02/26/13

So khaki pants and sweaters are pretty much what I reach for when I get up to get ready these (wintery) mornings. I love how sweaters look layered on top of a button down or polo shirt. Not only do I love this outfit, but ‘Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ’ by O.P.I. (pictured to the left), is probably my absolute nail color of all time. I just had to show it off in this O.O.T.D.!

OOTD — 01/15/13

As a requirement for some of the classes I will be taking next semester, I have to document quite a few observation hours. So, a few days ago, I visited my old high school and shadowed a few of my old high school science teachers. In the future, I plan to become a high school science teacher, myself. Take a look at this ‘OOTD’…it features what I wore on that day of observation!

OOTD – 12/28/12

Hey guys!  I hope y’all had a fabulous holiday!  Lucky for me, I’ve still got a little bit more celebrating to do!  On Christmas Eve, my dad’s parents and one of his sisters comes to our house to exchange gifts.  Then on Christmas Day, my mom’s side of the family comes for brunch and to exchange gifts.  Tonight, all of my dad’s siblings and my two cousins will head to my dad’s parents house for dinner to finish the celebrating!  Needless to say, I’m going to need a vacation from my vacation!  Just kidding, but I am getting pretty tired!

One more Christmas Dinner means one more outfit to plan!  After Friday night, you’ll most likely find me in leggings and a fleece until I head back to school… #lazygirl

Anyways, here’s what I’m planning on wearing tomorrow to dinner…let’s just pray there’s no snow and the temperatures don’t drop too much!

OOTD: Sister edition!

It’s a chilly, sort-of gloomy day here at the beach, so my sister and I have resorted to wearing long sleeves instead of bathing suits. It’s a tough compromise, but as my boyfriend wisely pointed out to me this morning, a day on vacation–even a yucky one–is better than a day at work. Amen to that!

 

What I’m wearing:

    • Top: Old Navy. I fiiiinally got a chambray shirt after lusting after them for a year or two. Yeah, I’m late to the party, but I’m glad I finally got there!
    • Shorts: Lands’ End Canvas. LOVE THESE! They’re always look brighter than I think they really are, but they definitely punch up an outfit!
    • Accessories: green beaded necklace (I’ve had it since eighth grade!), Michael Kors watch, sailor’s rope bracelet from Kennebunkport, J.Crew madras headband, and tortoise shell sunglasses from Marshalls, signet and claddagh rings.

On my sister:

    • Bicycle t-shirt: J.Crew
    • Sweater: Lands’ End
    • Jeans: Hollister
    • Metallic boat shoes: Sperry Topsider
    • Accessories: Ann Taylor belt, Swarovski ring, necklace from Copper Mt., Colorado.

I hope that the weather’s better wherever you are!

My friend Jackie’s OOTD and a random one from this week!

I think the best thing about springtime is all of the cute outfits.  My friend Jackie stopped by my house this morning, and I loved her look so much that I asked her to pose for an OOTD picture 🙂  LOVE the red pants!

On Jackie:

  • Capris: Old Navy
  • Top: Francesca’s Collections
  • Sweater: American Eagle Outfitters
  • Flip-Flops: Francesca’s Collections.

I’m a huge fan of colored pants right now, but I’m so scared to try them!!  I was out shopping yesterday, and in literally every store I went into there were colored jeans or khakis.  Bold primary colors, pastels, neons…every type of color was represented.  And I saw them everywhere, from American Eagle to Forever 21 to even Ann Taylor!  I think I’m going to have to buck up and try this trend soon, because it looks like so much fun!  We’ll have to see what happens.

This outfit is something that I wore earlier this week to my Student Government meeting at school.  I’m so excited that I can wear skirts again! Skirts or shorts with a sweater=my spring/summer uniform.

What I’m Wearing:

  • Sweater: Gap
  • Skirt: J.Crew (it’s seersucker!!)
  • Skinny belt: Ann Taylor
  • Sandals: Jack Rogers
  • Misc: pearl necklace and earrings, J.Crew tortoise shell headband, Michael Kors watch, signet and claddagh rings.

Do you have any cute spring outfits? Comment below! I’d love to do a feature on what readers are wearing!

OOTD 3/22/12

I know it’s only the third day of spring, but I swear it feels like summer out there!  Tank tops, shorts, flip flops…it’s all good!  This is actually my outfit from yesterday, but I thought I’d share 🙂

I’m wicked bummed that this weather isn’t going to carry on into this weekend (especially because I’m going to The Cape), but at least I had this one week of fun in the sun!

What I’m wearing:

  • sweater: J. Crew
  • top: American Eagle
  • shorts: Old Navy
  • sandals: Jack Rogers
  • accessories: Old Navy necklace, pearl earrings, signet and claddagh rings, bracelets: Pandora, Alex and Ani, and random silver bangle.

Is it feeling like summer for you guys too?

xoxo, Karoline
