Thrifting my Paycheck Away

I went to Goodwill yesterday, and let's just say that I went a little crazy. There were a lot of employees that I had never seen before, and they were all stocking the racks with new merchandise. I usually like to go through EVERYTHING, but after going through just my favorite sections (sweaters, dresses, anything…

Little Red Riding Hood: OOTD

Hello everyone! I really wanted to have fun with my clothes today. This was my first week as an art teacher, in a school where everyone is expected to dress professionally. I've been wearing outfits that are very boring! This outfit felt like a breath of fresh air. It was a bit annoying making my…

Summer is almost over

And it was one of the best ones I've had in quite a while. Summers have always been difficult times for me. I am usually broke. I am usually lonely because my friends live far away. But this year I had a job that allowed me to save enough to get by, and my partner…

Mori Kei Inspired: OOTD

I've been meaning to share this outfit for a while, but I kept forgetting to! In case you're wondering what the heck the title is referring to, Mori Kei is a name that was given to a Japanese fashion style. "Mori" means forest, and "kei" means style. It's supposed to look like the style of…

missing sunny days

I didn't go to the beach today, but I dressed like I did. Some people might not consider this beach appropriate, but I don't go swimming most of the time. I prefer to lounge around on the sand and read a book! I kind of looked like I was dressed for Independence Day 😂 A…

A cloudy day: OOTD

It's been pretty gloomy in South Florida lately, with lots of cloudy and rainy days. I don't mind the rain that much because I tend to stay home most of the time anyway! I'm not working at the moment, so I've been taking advantage of my free time to read, knit, and watch those movies…

A sunny spring day: OOTD

I finally thrifted the perfect blue jeans! I am so excited to show you guys this pair. They fit nice and snug on my waist so I don't have to pull them up too often, and they're very loose and straight in the legs. I've been looking for something like this for months. I paired…

OOTD: Esmeralda Edition

My brother and sister called me Esmeralda today (as in the Hunchback of Notre Dame lady). They almost always have snarky comments about my outfits. Usually they're something along the lines of "Hey, grandma's home!", or "You look like [insert cartoon character/BTS member here]." I find it funny most of the time... Emphasis on most.…

On Caring Less

I often get comments from well-meaning family members about how the way I dressed and styled my hair in the past looked more flattering than the way I do now. It irks me to no end when they say that, because I am in a much better place now when it comes to my self-esteem…
