Another Year Older, Another year Wiser 

Today was an emotional wreck…..it is my birthday and I was a wreck. Maybe my PMSing is getting to me or maybe I am just tired of what is going on in my life. It had to take to me to get frustrated that nothing was going my way on my birthday, to realize that I need to get my act together. I turned 24 and I am not getting younger but older. It is time that I take more control of my life and choices, I am basically in my mid 20s. Six more years i will be 30….doesn’t sound too close but before you know it I will be 30. Wow!! I’m sitting here thinking about that and amazed how far I have come and how much of an adult I do not feel like. Anyway I am another year older and I do feel wiser, things I went through as 23 year old I would not do or experience again. 

   
Express scarf and skirt New York and Company shirt and shoes and do not ask why my shirt looks like that (haha) coach purse

I really liked my outfit today, felt age appropriate and trendy at the same time. I had a problem with that skirt though, wish I would of went down a size. Great fit but I definitely had extra room in there, why didn’t I try on the medium?!

  
  
I didn’t do much today but…..bitch. I will be brutally honest I did, supposedly there are things planned for me for the weekend. We shall see : ).

  
Whoops almost fell over : D

 

Today….

Me and my cousin (that took my pictures today) are very close. He was goofing off while taking them, so if I look like I am laughing hysterically….that is why.  My head was hurting in sewing class today, I was so tired of sewing that damn beret. I mean I have been pissed, the book makes instructions ten times harder than needed. I was happy to get home to relax, I went to paint and that made me more frustrated.

I love this shirt, the flowy sleeves and embroidery make it so feminine. Very pretty boho shirt, I thought about wearing a skirt but today I just did not care.

Outfit Idea: Re-Inventing a Look

You know what outfit I am SOOOOOO TIRED OF SEEING IT MAKES ME SICK?! The whole quilted vest with the plaid shirt and the jeans paired with the knee high boots.  NO MORE! I have seen that outfit so much on my pinterest and other blogs that I want to band that outfit. It is like that is everyone’s favorite thing to wear once it starts to get cold. I like the outfit personally but, to me there’s no individualism when it comes to it because everyone wears it the same way! That also goes for a lot of outfits out here like that but on this post today I am going to show ways to make the look different, courtesy  of my polyvore account: ).

Dress it up!!!

  

Change the outfit from casual to dressy! Add brooches for some sophistication.

Wear a plaid dress instead of a shirt 

Still like the plaid look? Exchange the shirt for a dress and instead of regular riding boots, use lace up boots for a more sexy look. 
Mix Prints  
Mix it up with different prints! Makes the outfits more interesting. Add velvet flats and a colorful scarf for extra detail. 

There is many ways to style an outfit or an item. Remember being different makes you stand out and people will notice your fashion more
