Nothing Special

- Outfits

Sequins_3

Yesterday morning was literally one of those mornings where I had 5 minutes to choose an outfit (15 minutes to get ready in total, whoops). The easiest route for me is a dress + blazer/cardigan and just match all my accessories. It seems so boring and blah, but sometimes it just works when you are trying to get ready fast. I chose my sequin black cardigan over my plain one though, just to add a little something more to the ensemble. It is still nothing special, but it happens. On the upside, the SUN WAS SHINING yesterday and got up to 46 degrees! I actually didn’t wear tights for this reason, but because I am refusing to wear them until next fall/winter, but it ended up working since I felt perfectly fine walking out of the office with bare legs at 5 o’clock. Cheers to that!

    I really like that dress, as well as the cardi! It may be nothing special to you but I think this outfit is fun! I’m not sure I could rock it without tights in 45 degree weather…but my legs get cold easily!

    Rachel! You look so pretty in these pictures – your hair looks amazing. The early morning light really is the best :)

    AND HIGH FIVE FOR NO TIGHTS. I didn’t even wear a jacket into work today. yeah it’s only 35 degrees but come on, we’re midwestern girls. it’s basically swim suit weather!

      Thanks Fran! My hair actually cooperated yesterday, WHAT?! AND YES! Exactly! Seriously I was ready to bust out the shorts… okay maybe not that far. But tights, just not necessary anymore! Plus I think all of mine have holes in them now, lol.

    I can’t believe you are already wearing no tights. I wish I could without freezing! It’s supposed to nice this weekend, though, so maybe I will try it out :)

    I’m impressed you pulled this together in just 15 minutes! I always pick out my clothes at night before work or I’d be a mess. I think I would’ve been freezing without tights!

    Oh my, are you a perpetual snooze-button-hitter like myself? I seriously cannot pull myself out of bed on time in the morning, yikes!

    I love this look- the print + details make it interesting. :)

      Haha YUP! I probably snooze on average 3-4 times per morning. It is awful! I just don’t want to get up at the first alarm!

    Bare legs?! You are a brave one, Miss Rachel!! I usually wait until 50 degrees before I’ll wear bare legs, and even then, it completely depends on what I’m doing that day :)

    Rachel, nothing special? I think that outfit looks killer. The pattern and colour mix of this dress is so darling and it gets such an galmouros touch with the sequin cardigan. You look beautiful my friend :-)
