I love this dress. Everything about it is so perfect. The cut, the color, the beading, the sleeves. Its a bit big on me but I don’t even care because it is so amazing. Plus it makes it super comfortable.
I wore this dress last weekend out to dinner with my fiancé. We went to On the Border – one of our favorites. Does any one else adore On the Border? I think they have the most amazing chips and salsa. Plus they have this red onion and avocado enchilada which is to die for. Anyway now that I have gotten myself hungry for Mexican food, onto the outfit photos.

This is actually the outfit I wore last Friday. I am a little bit behind on posting. I am gonna try and be better about that though because blogging is really a fun hobby that I love doing.
Anyway when I saw Jim last Friday night he almost immediately asked if I wanted him to take outfit photos. I would like to think its because this outfit is so awesome, but its probably because it was a little crazy. I mean I am wearing 5 inch wedges in January.

Anyway I thought I did I pretty good job transitioning this dress from a summer dress to a winter one. Summer dress + oversized sweater + tights = winter outfit!
This is how I wore it over the summer:
I have an outfit post!! I am kind of sad that they are few and far between lately because I really like doing them, but I’ll take what I can get.
I wore this outfit on Saturday, i.e. the first true snow of the winter! I wore it hanging around my apartment all day and then to dinner with my friends later in the night. I think the entire outfit is made up of new items from Christmas presents. I really love wearing a bunch of new clothes at once. It makes an outfit feel extra special – does anyone else feel that way.

I have been settling into the semester so my posts have been few and far between, but I think I am getting my schedule down now so post should pick back up.
See you tomorrow with a Wonderful Wednesday post!
I am going wedding dress shopping today (insert girlish squeal here)!!!!!!!!!

I had a lot of fun doing a summary of all the outfits I wore while visiting my fiancé’s parents in May/June so I thought I would do so again. I was a superb packer this time and brought exactly enough outfits for the number of days we were there. They were pre-planned and everything!
And yes I did the dreaded picture in the mirror thing, but I am pretty sure Jim’s family would have thought I was crazy if I started taking outfit photos in there front lawn!
Outfit 1: The sweater was a Christmas gift from my Aunt. I think that is the only item of red clothing that I own, but I think I may have to get more red pieces. The plaid shirt was a gift from my mom. The bicycle necklace was a birthday present. The jeans are from Forever 21.
Outfit 2: I have definitely posted this outfit on my blog before. That sweater is one of my favorites (its from Urban Outfitters). As is the dress.
Outfit 3: This is the outfit I wore to Jim’s extended family Christmas party (with almost 50 people!). The sweater was a Christmas gift from my mom. The necklace was a Valentine’s day gift from Jim. The skirt was a hand-me-down from my mom.
Outfit 4: This is one of my favorite new sweaters. It is an XL from Jcrew but i just wear it as an oversized sweater. It is a great color. The jeans are really old and from Gap.
You can see the first Chicago Style here.
I have some more outfit photos!! These are from a while ago. I can’t remember exactly when. They were at some point before finals, but everything in the past 2 weeks is pretty much just a blur of studying and Christmas preparation.
This outfit is a little out there, but I like it anyway. I have really been enjoying wearing my hair in a top knot lately. If I wear my hair in a traditional bun, I kind of look like I have no hair in photos, so you know this fixes that.
Anyway here are the pictures:

I have an outfit post today! Jim and I managed to coordinate some outfit photo time. He is such a good sport. I can’t remember exactly what day I wore this outfit, sometime in the last week I believe. I really liked this it because it was comfy and simple.
Also I am wearing my favorite $10 jeans. I love the color and they are the perfect length for me which is a rarity at 5’3″. (Does the period go inside the quotations in that situation??).
Don’t you just love these shoes? Jim got them for me for our 3 year anniversary!

In other news I just finished a 10 page research paper for one of my classes. I am super excited to be done with it. The semester is truly coming to an end!
