Off the Shoulder Stripes | OOTD

We finally set out to explore the city of Vilnius and boy was it fun! We hiked up to the Gedimino Tower and got the most amazing view of Old Town Vilnius. Everything was so beautiful it looked like it was from a story book. 

My OOTD is an off the shoulder top that I already had and a new pair of classically cut pants from Houston Designer Steve Guthrie. When you’re moving around a lot you’ll want pants that can hold your stuff (deep pockets) and that will stay put (high rise). These were amazing for all the walking I did. I paired my trusty white converse with this ootd to keep it casual. The beauty of this look is that with a simple change of my shoe, it goes from casual to dressy if I need it to.  

Leave me a comment about your favorite look that changes occasions easily with a shoe change. Enjoy!

Travel Day in Kiev,Ukraine | OOTD

Greetings from Kiev, Ukraine! This outfit of the day is from my first day in Eastern Europe. We had a 20+ hour layover in Kiev, Ukraine so instead of sleeping on the airport floor (which was really tempting, NOT!!!) we slept one night in one of the best hostels in town. It was  such a treat after an almost 9 hour flight from New York. In that short time we were able to shower, sleep in a comfortable bed and get some yummy, eats and drinks. We walked around the street markets to take in some sights while we could. Before we knew it, it was time to hit the airport again for our final destination. 

Alright, let’s talk about the details for this first outfit of the day Europe edition. This look was inspired by all of the European women after my own heart who are all about light minimalist looks in the summer. 

For this look I paired a sleeveless light blue button down top with white deconstructed denim. My sandals have a simple, single wide straps across the toes and around the ankle. This helps keep everything looking clean. My pop of color happens to be my day bag for exploring. It’s a wine colored satchel with a leather strap and adds just enough interest to the look with out loosing the minimalist qualities. It’s hard to keep lights clean when you’re traveling but I managed.

OOTD: Anniversary Edition ?

Mike (the hubs) and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary this week! (Woo Hoo!) He still hates saying that we’ve only been married for 3 years because we’ve been together for over 10 years and he thinks that “cheating the stature of our relationship”. Lol

We had dinner planned for saturday night and of course the first thing that comes to my mind is “I don’t have anything to wear!” I had planned and budgeted for a new pair of shoes this week so long as I truly loved them. I found a pair that I couldn’t live with out (on clearance at DSW) but was going to dinner naked (figuratively) because I still had “nothing to wear”. I also wanted something stretchy because I planned on pigging out! I strolled through the mall with every intention of buying something new until I came across this lovely jacket at express(first photo below) for $108. It sparked my memory and I remembered I had a jacket similar to that one from last season that did NOT cost me $108. I quickly put together comfortable and simple OOTD in my mind with clothes I already had. The color scheme really showed off my new shoes too! I guess trying to shop can send you right back to your own closet sometimes. 🙂 Enjoy this special OOTD!
