A few weeks ago I got a chance to pic out an outfit and some shape wear from Monroe and Main. This scuba dress is amazing, and I wanted a funky cool pattern for the summer. And the shoes are something I can run around in all summer, besides they go so well with this dress.

Monroe and Main helps women dress for their body shape (check out this helpful set of infographics here). It was an interesting process for me to try.

But being the size that I am the dress is a little too big for me, even though it’s a size small. I guess all the stress with the finals and the end of the semester have done their job. No one is complaining here, it’s good to be under 120 lbs.

Mason was dragged into posing with me for these photos, but isn’t he the cutest?

It’s Plaid to me #ThriftStyleThursday

2015-04-27 17.38.39

I have missed so  many Thrift Style Thursdays that I have lost count. But I really wanted to blog today, especially after my Macro final, that I don’t even care if the shirt is plaid! I have recently gone to the new goodwill outlet in St Paul, and this shirt is from there, along with many other shirts and sweaters. I also went thrifting today and got a pretty fancy paisley Ralph Lauren dress, so move over Lily Pulitzer, I never liked you anyways.

So even though the shirt cost probably less than $1.00, I managed to wear it with a pair of $200 Joe’s Jeans. Talk about thrifty blogger over here! My T-shirt is from Zara, and says “Darling, I have it on vinyl”, which I don’t. I also don’t have anything to play vinyls on. This is a summer goal – acquire vinyls, a new shelf for the living room, redecorate the living room, don’t go broke, and have fun.

I have so many fun things to attend to this weekend, I can’t wait. Yes they are fashion shows. But I have one more final, and that is kind of driving me insane. Ironically enough it is a psychology final.

Someone bring me Chipotle and come play with my dog, while I go study.

Also, my favorite girl, so check them out!


 

Finals

Having been MIA for a couple weeks, I think this is going to be the last week of my blog absence. I have two finals left, one on Thursday and one on Friday and then I guess freedom? Well kind of. I have my internship coming up and I am sure I will be busy all summer, which will make it fly by. 

Another “great” thing is – I can’t access my blog from home and BlueHost tells me it’s ISP, and ISP isn’t being helpful at all. “Have you tried turning it on and off again?” joke got really old really fast. I can access all other websites just fine, but not my blog. Lovely, isn’t it? So pardon me while I blog from my phone. At least Verizon hasn’t failed me yet, looking at you Comcast! 

Meanwhile catch me on Instagram. Peace! 

Just Another Tuesday

2015-04-28 10.03.34

So I’ve ditched this blog for over 2 weeks, checking it today was as hard as checking a grade for a class I know I am not doing well in.

The semester is almost over and my summer internship starts May, 18.

Mason is doing really well, he is my absolute favorite. A lot of my friends say that he is their favorite Hutson now. He is seriously so stinking cute, I can’t stop instagramming him. I am one of those crazy fur moms now.

Last week I stopped by Goodwill outlet in St Paul, and guess what, I can get a whole wardrobe there for under $10! You don’t need the expensive stuff this world tells you to buy. I am perfectly fine in my thrifted shirt and jeans. And Mason still likes me, so that’s all that matters.

Full skirts and fuzzy socks 

Monday. I have a story for you. After spending about an hour and a half studying at Wilson library and talking to my mom and uncle on Skype, I started packing up my stuff to go to my Psych lecture. And I put my notebook in my laptop case. It took me a minute to realize what I’ve done! 

Even though I have a lot going on this week, I’m excited to tackle it all down. 

Today’s look is not on me, it’s on the floor, and it would’ve been perfect for tomorrow because it’s all grey, but I had several guys hold the doors open for me, so I did something right with this look! 

   

   

Also, Mason says hi! Look who is the king of the castle now 😉 

PS. It was a rainy day today and just like thousands of other girls at the University of Minnesota I put mine on over my fuzzy socks. If I am wearing rubber on my feet, I might as well be comfy cozy! 


Easter-less

I can’t wait for next weekend when I get to actually celebrate Easter! Today was really weird and not my favorite day. I had more fun at work yesterday, I’ll be honest! At least I got to snuggle with my boys on the couch, watch Friends and got some homework done. 

Let this post be a reminder that sometimes everything can look pretty on the outside, but not so much on the inside.   


Dress for yourself

This is the toughest dress I’ve ever tried on! It is pretty hard to pull off because of the oddly shaped front, which is almost like a racer back! The vest came in handy though, covering up the odd shape and breaking up the pattern. What is/was the hardest item from your wardrobe that you pulled off? 

   

 

Culottes

 Fashion should be fun!
