OOTD: Black + White

Howdy!

Today I have a new outfit post for you! I originally wanted these pictures to be taken outside but since my dad helped bring me inside that day, I never got the chance to ask mom to do them over again. And there’s no point in asking dad because he doesn’t necessarily get it, so in ways we have to be grateful that my mom decided to do this while we waited for the doctor to see me!

On Friday, I decided to pick out something in my closet that I have yet to share with you guys. The top is actually the last of the clothes I bought back in February! I tried to talk my mom into wearing her shirt too since she bought the same one, so we could be twins but she voted against that. The shirt is long sleeves, which probably wasn’t the best thing to wear out in the month of June without a cloud in the sky. It sort of has a jersey style to it as the arms and around the upper part of the chest is all black while the rest is white.

The only design on it is a giant black skull with hearts as eyes on the front. Yes, that was the whole reason why I bought it. However, that wasn’t my mom’s reason, she purchased it because it was comfortable! It’s pretty soft to the touch, if you sweat in it the feel of it is annoying but it’s cotton. What I find interesting is that the upper half I explained is in like a deep black whereas the skull itself is like fading into a dark gray, I don’t know why both sections are two different colors, but as long as I have a few more shots to wear it out in public I’m fine. I’ll just have to wait until mid-September to wear it again.

My leggings were part of another outfit I had back in 2014 or ’15, I get confused of which year it was given to me, but I do remember getting it on Christmas Day along with another outfit that was similar to it. One was purple with sequins and the other was zebra print. Unfortunately the tops were too small for my arms because it had the shirt and small jacket attached to each other, so getting it off and on was difficult for us. So I mostly just wear the pants now! I’ve outgrown the purple pair and I’m pretty sure this was the last time I’ll be able to wear these as they were very tight around my waist and stomach.

Despite the tightness, they are very nice to wear. It would be easier to wear them while I’m not moving the push chair by myself. They are very slippery as my parents call them. I generally like that material but it does have its drawbacks with the “silky” texture and the different temperatures just go right through it; they’re the worst to wear in the winter because you feel the cold breeze very easily and if you are sitting out in the sun for a few minutes, the heat just goes right into your thighs and you feel like you’re melting! I like them, but as you can see they’re not a favorite among my parents!

What do you think of this outfit of the day? Yay or nay?

OOTD: Spring Dress!

18386789_10202903824154709_1940584092_n

Howdy!

Today’s post is about what I wore to my sister’s bridal shower last weekend! As you can see, I wore a dress!

I wanted to get something nice to wear at Blondie’s bridal shower and for some odd reason I just wanted to wear a dress. I have one in my closet but I haven’t tried it on since 2015 so I was unsure if it was going to fit and I didn’t want to wait until the last minute to see, so I had mysteriously committed myself to wearing a dress! One day we were at Walmart and we were looking around and they had a small amount of casual dresses in the store, but we had found these three different colored lace-y dresses and I was kind of into them, but I was still second guessing myself.

As I’ve mentioned in the past I have a lot of insecurity issues with different areas, mainly with my stomach and arms. I’m not considered skinny around my stomach and waist, sometimes I get down about that because I know I can’t say it’s muscle like I do with my butt, so I have a hard time feeling beautiful in my skin. The one place that tends to really bother me the most are my arms. They’re just there and get in the way of my tops that have pretty designs in the front.

We were in the food department and I kept thinking about them. So I talked my mom into taking me back to where they were and she and I agreed on buying the black one although I had seriously considered the baby blue instead! It came with a nice light brown belt that I really liked! The dress reminds me of like Spanish inspired, because of the neckline and ruffles of the sleeves. I really like the lace-y texture of course! I wasn’t really into the pink throughout, but I am slowly coming around to the color in general now! It has some baby blue flowers in there too – I just really loved it!

One of our concerns was obviously the shoulders, I can never find anything that will actually stay up on my right shoulder. So my mom had the idea for placing a safety pin on the back to help it from falling down. I absolutely hate safety pins! They make me feel uneasy and I always feel like it’s going to undo and poke me, and I do not want to do that anywhere around my back. So she thought about tying the clear straps that you put on your hanger together and hoping that it would be enough to keep it up and surprisingly it worked and I was very happy about that!

I wasn’t going to mention this, but figured I probably should. Since I was going to be around a lot of people and ended up participating in the shower quite a bit, my mom put me in a pair of shorts. I mostly kept my feet somewhat leveled but it was something that I just felt I needed to do so I wasn’t worried on how much I moved around. I also wore my “M” necklace with it, because my other one wouldn’t undo for us and I would love to wear it again, not exactly sure if it would go with the dress itself but you know! You might see it in a coming up post as my dad fixed it for us! As for my hair, my mom had half of it in a small clip, she thought I looked very elegant! While my nana thought I looked like a little doll!

So what do you think of my outfit? Yay or nay? When was the last time you wore like a cute and fun dress?

OOTD: Oh, Deer!

16640847_10202568140962839_2023995670131552378_n

Howdy!

Today I have another outfit of the day, but I wanted to mention that I wore it on Friday, I just wasn’t able to get the pictures right away to publish it over the weekend.

As I mentioned in my V-Day OOTD I went shopping and managed to buy more colorful clothes, mostly in the T-shirt department. I really love my black clothing and everything, but unfortunately most of the tops I own doesn’t go with my bright and crazy leggings so somehow I managed to buy probably seven tops that do not have a shade of black on them! I did buy one gray and two black and white tops, but you’ll see soon the only reason I bought those last two were because they go with my personality really well!

I guess since we’re already on the subject, we can start on the shirt which is a simple tee in a pale shade of yellow. I don’t really care for pastel colors, but I do like a mint and nice yellow like this. The day I wore this, my mom wore her pink top, and we looked like a couple of Easter eggs! I think it’s a nice color though, it’s not in your face yellow, it’s a very sweet and gentle color.

I think since because this is just a basic top, it was cheaper than the “Love” shirt I put up last week. They were also on sale too, which was the real reason why I came home with five different shirts. I’m pretty sure they were all $3 each and that is really good. I originally had another shirt that I wanted to wear with these pants I’m about to talk about in a minute, but I lost to both my mom and sister. My dad was on my side but beer was involved so his answer was invalided.

Anyways, the leggings were the first thing I saw when we got into the section and I fell in love with them instantly. You guys know I love my Aztec designs, so this one is no different except it has little deer and birdcage images with the normal shapes throughout, but the background is a solid black and it has a rainbow ombre of bold colors from the waist to the ankles.

Everybody that I was around that day, seemed to really like them and think they were from another brand that has become sort of popular recently, called LaRue but they’re from Wal-Mart instead. These were just $4 and that is a LOT better than some places especially LaRue’s prices as I was told! I know a lot of people have opinions about Wal-Mart’s leggings that they have a little bit of a history of tearing while in the wash, but I’ve never had any issues with them and majority of the leggings in my drawer is from there!

I also wore my shawl that morning since I had an early day at physical therapy and it was pretty chilly! I even had to wear a pair of socks, they weren’t anything fancy though! Just plan black socks that I feel shrunk while in the washer because my mom was having issues putting them on me and my nana almost took off my left foot trying to remove it when I got to her house!

So what do you think of this outfit? Yay or nay?

OOTD: Valentine

16729433_1386987274698932_4082250858181875025_n

Hi 🙂

I bet you’re wondering why I am posting again, well yesterday I went for my first day in physical therapy and I went to my nana’s house afterwards, so I got dressed all fancy for Valentine’s Day! I also want to apologize for the brightness on the pictures. My mom put me right in the direction of the sunlight and I knew this would happen. I tried to fix it on PicMonkey but it was driving me crazy and they would not let me save them without creating an account first. So hopefully everybody that reads this post will understand. Oh, and you’re going to love my expressions!

Okay, let’s start this off! On Sunday, my mom, sister and I had ourselves a girl’s day out and we went to a bridal expo, which I will talk more about sometime next month. We also went to Wal-Mart and I still had a gift card from Christmas and I used it up in one day buying all new clothes! Retail therapy has its perks!

First things first, we have to discuss something. My mom has the worst time lifting me up into the car while I wear my coat. She cannot get ahold of my arms and safely put me into the seat, so we’ve had to remove it beforehand. We found a rack of shawls as we were passing by and we thought we’d try one out. I went for the green and blue plaid colored one. The shawl was $5! Surprisingly, it works and what I love about it, is that I can wear it in the “right” way, where my hands are placed on the outside of it (even though they’ll be colder that way!) and it doesn’t look silly on me because of my skrawny arms.

16708389_1386987264698933_4340153308252606875_n

Underneath is a red top, and we found this as we were looking at the different holiday shirts. I am sucker for clothes with sayings on it, I always have been! This one is just a simple outline of a heart in white with the word “love” written in the middle. I am happy that the lettering is large enough that even if I don’t move my arms over, people can still read what it says without a problem. That is always a plus with me!

This shirt was probably $7.88, but don’t count me on that!

16681673_1386988341365492_5744070196050849415_n

As far as my leggings, I had two options. I have another gray pair of leggings, they are a darker gray with a light gray floral pattern. I thought those would look good with the shirt, but that night I realized I still had my “lace” ones too! They’re not made out of lace, but they have that lace-y look to them. They’re a gray, almost white background while the actual lace-floral pattern is in black. I love these but I haven’t had anything that goes with them until now!

16730120_1386988684698791_1214116563308981912_n

To finish out my outfit, I wore red socks that have little Christmas trees on the sides to tell you which is left or right. My Aunt Laurie got me these as a Christmas present. Unfortunately, I may have to stop wearing them because of the material just sheds everywhere! My mom and I tend to have scraps of red all over us by the end of the day! They keep my toes very warm at night anyways!

So what do you think of my outfit? Yay or nay?

OOTD: Birthday Chic

14947384_10202126707847287_344197281499048573_n

Howdy!

Yeah, so this year hasn’t been a good one for my “outfits of the day” posts unfortunately! My mom and I really need to go through my closet and see what does work together, even though we already know the answer to that question; hardly anything I own goes together.

We did go through my pant drawers to see what all still fits me and what I wanted to wear. One bad thing was I had to let go of my favorite pair of jeans… I feel like I kept them just in case my mom would put me in them although I doubt my hips would have ever let that happen. The only reason why we still haven’t went through my actual closet is because she has to stand on top of my bed and I have a lot more shirts than bottoms too! I don’t know how that happens honestly!

In today’s OOTD post though, we found a cardigan in the middle of my closet, it even had the price tag on it too! It’s from Charlotte Russe, my mom and I think I got it from Christmas last year and we just forgot I had it. It is a pretty cardigan too! I’d say it’s more of a darker gray and it has an added detail at the sleeves: ruffles! You can’t necessarily see them on my arms but they were there! It’s long, so it hangs down and as my mom was pushing me around, she kept saying I had a tail because of the extra material hanging out in the back! I wore my skull tank top underneath it, because you know I can’t celebrate my birthday without some skulls popping into my outfit sometime! As far as my pants, my mom put me in my black and white plaid bottoms, they’re not heavy which I like the most about them. They’re nice and soft inside and out. They make me look much more sophisticated than I think!

Oh, I also decided to wear some jewelry too! I know I hardly wear my bracelets and necklaces but I felt like I needed something to finish off the whole outfit. The original necklace I wanted to wear didn’t want to unhook and I was really sad about that, but my mom exchanged it with my “Meghan” necklace she found by chance several years ago. One thing that I love about it (besides the fact it has my name spelled the right way), is that it’s on a shorter chain! The first one is super long, it’s beautiful but it goes down to my right hand which as you can see from the pictures below, that’s a large space in between!

I got lucky this year because there’s always a 50/50 chance that it could rain or storm, so I’m usually weary about what I should wear because I know by the end of the day, I’ll be thinking in my head “well, this was a bad idea to wear this!” Thankfully this was not one of those days! It was a perfect autumn day! It wasn’t cold or too warm; our trees are really starting to lose their leaves around town and it felt so good that I wore something very lightweight on accident and I was surprised after decorating cupcakes that the ends of my pants didn’t turn blue either!!

What do you think of my outfit? Yay or nay?

OOTD: You’re Not Alone!

13516514_10201647627830586_4568593795912210906_n

If you’re an American like myself than Happy Fourth to you! If not, hello anyways!

I did think I’d have three blog posts back-to-back but the last two were last minute additions, so I didn’t think I’d have any of these posts for the weekend, hell not even the rest of the week!

I’ve been lacking on the OOTD posts and I am very sorry about that. My mom has been putting me into my same old clothes that I’ve already talked about on here, so that’s the main reason why I haven’t done another one of these lately.

On Saturday, we had plans to go to bridesmaid dress shopping, but Blondie cancelled it because half of the bridal party couldn’t go, so my parents made up for it by taking me to Wal-Mart with them. And this was my outfit of the day!

I have a pretty big closet and I have like a dozen band tees in there that I don’t wear a lot, my mom hates that because they don’t go with anything! My mom pulled this one out of the racks; it’s my “You’re Not Alone” with big bold letters across the front of it. The bottom of it–that you cannot see–says Of Mice & Men in normal font, but has the color red in it. I got this shirt from Hot Topic a couple of years ago. The fact that it has the colors black, white, and red it can go with two of my plaid leggings that I got for this past Christmas, I have both white AND red leggings! I’m pretty sure they both could go with it! We now know that these work! 

What do you say about this outfit? Yay or nay? Do you want to see my other band tees on future OOTD posts?

OOTD: Black + Tan

10639361_10201006631846087_1836846499422926779_n

Hey guys!

This is my second OOTD in the last two days, be proud of me especially since this picture was taken outside! My mom took off my jacket and I wanted to say to hell with it!

I went back to my nana’s yesterday, we had lunch and a good day! I just got permission to talk about what’s sort of going on lately. So I’m hoping I can get that up sometime soon! Saturday’s outfit consists of lots of black! I like and own a lot of it in my closet. You guys know how much my mom hates it, she wishes I had more black leggings than black shirts. I have a lot of funky, colorful leggings that goes with absolutely nothing in my closet!

Anyways, everything was bought at Wal-Mart. The shirt I’ve had for years, it’s my standard black shirt but the material feels very silky, almost like a swinsuit. My leggings are black with a tan and white Aztec/tribal print on them. You guys seem to enjoy my leggings a lot! I always get nice comments about them! I got a few for Christmas so you’ll be seeing a lot of new ones! These were actually the first present I opened that morning! They aren’t as snug as my other pants. I can breathe/eat while wearing them, but I have to say when the wind blows, it goes right into my sleeves. And yes, I’m talking from experience! Of course to round it all out, I wore my black socks to complete my casual look!

What do you think about this outfit? Yay or nay? What kind of patterns do you love the most?
