Back to school

Everyone is headed back to school, whether it is primary school, middle school, high school or back to college. For me, it is back to teaching primary school. My new 4th graders are such sweethearts (let's see if I am saying this come January, haha!). I am trying to get back into a school rhythm and get back to taking outfit photos. Soon, dear followers, soon. The first week back is so insane that I can barely manage to write this, let alone think. See you all soon with a new outfit. Wait for me!

Date Night

Summer is in full swing around here. Hot, sunny, a but windy, but clear and beautiful. I love summer nights like those! I had a date night with the boy on Saturday so I wanted to look nice and wear my new skirt. I realize that I can wear a lot of colors with this skirt: red, white, yellow, etc. but there is always something I like about the black. I know it is not the most summery of colors, but I always look nice in black and I always FEEL nice in black. And isn't that an important part of getting dressed? Feeling good? I say Yes! Even if it is hot, hot, hot outside, wear what feels good. My go to is always black. What about you?
 Skirt: Modcloth; Shirt: White House, Black Market; Shoes: DSW
 Normally, I would wear a cute pair of heels to go with this look, but I have a problem with one of my toes, so it's flats for a little while for me!

Luna just has to get on the shots!

Dinner with my sister.

Okay, so it is not a whole outfit shot, but I still like this photo. I had dinner with my sister in downtown Reno the other day at a cute little restaurant called Midtown Eats. (http://midtowneatsreno.com/ ) They have great food and really unique drinks. It is a great place to stop if you are looking for a place to eat in Reno.

Crazy weather, crazy hair, crazy life.

I have taken a long time to come back to this style blog. I really wanted to keep it going since I lately I have been feeling flat in my sartorial choices. This blog was always a place for me to try things and feel happy about what I put on.

As for my long hiatus, well, the easiest way to explain is to say that life got in the way. I had some medical issues and a few family issues as well, not to mention broken camera issues. Hopefully all of these crazy excuses will stop soon and I can get back to this blog!

My first picture back is not of my wardrobe, but of my dog. World, meet Luna. She is almost 2 years old. She has one blue eye and one brown. She is crazy and wild but I love her.
 Now, for my outfit! Well, it is a bit of a rainy and humid day, very unusual for around here. My hair is a bit frizzy, so I threw it back in a clip with a headband. I went for an easy outfit since I am not up to too much today. I know people say how simple just wearing jeans and a t-shirt it. It is the casual go to outfit for almost everyone it seems. I love the combination as well. I think it is easy to elevate the look with just a few simple accessories, like a cute pair of sandals and a neckless.

 Luna likes to take over the pictures.

A few more flashbacks

Alright, I'll admit it: I'm ready for cooler, crisp weather, colorful leaves and sweaters. That's right! I am so ready for fall. to inspire myself for some cool weather clothing, I bring you some selected outfits from past falls. Enjoy ladies and gents.

 
I love the red tighs with this outfit! It is fun and colorful and reminds me how much I love wearing colored tights in the fall!
Who doesn't love a great fall skirt?! The orange color mixed with the red flowers is perfect for fall. You can play off the color with a green color, or something more neutral. Awesome pieces for fall weather.
I often wear jeans in fall, but I love accessories that bring the fall feeling to an outfit. A nice hat, red shoes, a scraf with fall colors and suddenly I am in the mood. The beautiful fall leaves help too!
 
So now after some inspiration, who is ready for fall?

Remembering favorite clothing

Do you have a favorite piece of clothing that you wish you still owned, but no longer do? Of course you do! I think that all of us have favorite pieces of clothing we loved from the past that we wish we still owned and had in our wardrobe. Sometimes we lose these pieces because we outgrow them and sometimes we lose them because they are worn out. Sometimes we haven't worn them in so long, we decide to give them away in a cleaning rampage and then wish we had them back. So here is my post to a few previous items I wish were still in my wardrobe!

I loved this skirt! It was an all seasons kind of skirt. It was light and airy for summer but worked well for fall, as seen here. Alas, the elastic ripped out and I couldn't fix it.


I found this dress at a thrift store, and it was clearly homeade and fabulous. It was a throwback and gave me a great shape. It also got holes in it thanks to a puppy. How sad :(


I miss this scarf, which was colorful and light as well as this purple shirt. I haven't found another shirt this color that I've liked in a long time. Sometimes the color pallet just calls for a light purple. The scarf and the shirt were donated when I was cleaning my closet and preparing to move. SInce I hadn't worn either in a while, I decided to donate them.


There are still many items I wished I still owned, but those are a few. What about you readers? Do you have any items of clothing you wished you still had? Let me know!

Oldies but goodies

Alright, after a long break and a deleted blog I am finally back! I have been so flipping busy trying to get my life settled, I haven't had time to blog. Blah, blah, excuse, I know, blogging just wasn't my protity. Well, I am coming back to blogginh and hopefully will be posting new pictures and such to this blog. For now, I am going to do a few review posts of some of my favorite past outfits for inspiration.

 Dress: H&M, Shoes: DSW, Sweater: Old Navy, Necklace and Bracelet:?
I wore this outfit for a dinner in Spring of 2010. I was in Las Vegas and it was pretty warm but AC in resaurants is always on full blast. Thowing on a sweater is a great idea!

 Dress: H&M, Vest: Old Navy, Shoes: DSW, Bag: H&M, Sunnies: Target
Summer 2010. It was HOT! I always like simple summer looks when it is so warm. The dress is strapless so I added a vest to make it less revealing and to add another color. Perfect!
 Dress: target, Belt: target, Shoes: DSW, Bag: Unknown
Late Summer 2010. It was also very warm in late summer going wine tasting. Dressing up is great when wine tastin but wearing heels is not something I usually like to do. Throw on cute flats, problem solved.
