{OUTFIT} DAY TO NIGHT

leather jacket: ZARA

My workplace requires us to wear a "third piece," such as a denim vest, a bold statement necklace, a simple chain, or an artfully tied scarf to complete our look. This concept was a bit foreign to me at first, but with practice (and being obligated to do so) I now see the power of the "third piece!" The outfit in the first pic looks like I rolled out of bed, then, BOOM, add the scarf, and now I can go to lunch with friends. Or POW, add a leather jacket and some pumps, and I'm ready for a night out. Accessories, man.

I haven't been blogging much lately because I have been having trouble figuring out topics. Soon enough, I will be starting law school, and though it will be a struggle to find time for blogging, I still want to maintain some sort of a blog presence. And of course, there's always instagram. Suffice to say, hopefully I'll figure this ish out.

There has also been a newer, slightly more special friend in my life that I have been preoccupied with. Yes, I like a boy, and I can't help it. Hanging out with him feels sort of like entering a time warp, almost like we're re-experiencing high school. Weird, I know.
The other day we watched Fast 6 at the dollar theater, heckling at the movie screen, and afterwards played scrabble at a bubble tea cafe until midnight. Us and the rest of them college kids. But to someone who never did any of this growing up, it was pretty fun and exciting. This is probably what I appreciate and like most about this new relationship---That we can have fun together watching horrible movies.

{OUTFIT} SKIRTS FOR SPRING

Growing up, I used to wear skirts everyday for school. Having a strict uniform policy had its ups and downs, and as a young lady, while skirts may not have been the preferred bottom of choice (I was quite the active child), as an older gal, I've learned to appreciate them. My favorite thus far is using a dress as a skirt by layering it with a loose top. You don't have to worry about the skirt shifting and looking like you have distorted hips. Yay.
PS. The only way I feel comfortable wearing dresses and skirts is by wearing shorts or spandex underneath. A vestige of my schoolgirl days. That's whatsup.

{OUTFIT} STAPLE SHIRT

St. James Meridien (XS) // Zara Organic Tee (M) // Terryl for Thalian // PLAY Comme des Garcons (M)
When it comes to outfitting, there's always this big road block that awaits. All of a sudden, I feel like I have nothing to wear, when simply the creativity and excitement have withered away. Since working in retail and being constantly confronted with this style-conundrum, I needed to pick a style quick so that I don't spend too much time getting ready for work. Luckily, the no makeup-makeup look is workplace appropriate, and whenever in doubt, I have my go-to pieces. Guarantee you'll see me in a Saint James breton about five days out of the week. I'm always rotating the same types of pieces nowadays, and for some reason, it doesn't bother me anymore.

{OUTFIT} ON ROTATION

Ever since I started my part-time job, admittedly, I've purchased quite a number of new things. Nothing too crazy or trendy, but some repeats of favorites like stripe tees and jeans. As I approach my late 20s, I'm trying to figure out "what's me?" in terms of what pieces I naturally gravitate to. For one, I realized my obsession with stripes, duh. All I want to do is wear stripe tees with everything. One big thing that's changed is my size and fit preference. I used to like things really fitted, but now I'm all about sizing up and feeling more comfortable. Needless to say, it's kind of a great feeling finally knowing what pieces you feel like yourself in. What are some of your go-to pieces this Spring?

If you're wondering about size/fit...I'm 5'5, 125lb.
