A Bit of the Same

Hey guys! So I wore this quite awhile ago in the summer but I wasn't sure if I was going to put it up because of the shoes. Well I put it up anyway because I'm loving the colors. It's rare for me to wear so much color in one outfit but it was a good sunny day. And as for the skirt, I have no idea why but I just decided to buy this skirt on ebay and another blue one. It was only $4.

Gosh my first week of going back to school was hard to adjust to. Every day I came home and slept until 1 and then I did my homework. Monday and Wednesday were especially ridiculous because I had to wake up at 5:30 to get to a 7:20 class ahh. I'm just glad I haven't started work yet or I would've been exhausted! I'm greatful for that though, it gives me time to get used to my schedule before killing myself my goodness. 

I've made a few friends already but so far everyone is obviously too tired to strike up real conversations haha. This weekend I plan on going to the flea market to find some goodies and a taser. Haha my mom insists on me getting one now that her "baby" is out on her own. It's mostly because I'll be ending work at like 11:30pm. 

Haha well the good thing about being so busy is that there's more to talk about in my blog posts. Be sure to check out my instagram (@olivianoell). Have a good weekend guys :).

So today I got up and went to school and it was pouring rain. If you guys don't know already, there's a storm called Isaac coming and it's messing up my first week of school haha. I was so tiredddd. I literally woke up at 5:30 and when I got home at 10:45 I was still as tired as I was when I woke up. I don't think the weather helped either. And I have to buy 2 more books! *sigh* lol.

Well off to talk about this outfit! I took this outfit awhile ago during the summer when I had to go down to my college for financial aid and all that. A pretty standard outfit with spring colors and a peach belt for a bit of added color. I also added some simple gold pieces to add to it. This was one of those random pieces that fit oddly. Like I'm a size 5 in pants and these jeans are a size 1. It reminds me of 4 years ago ha.

Anyway I hope you guys had a better first day than me. I mean I didn't even have the energy to try and talk to people! Wish you guys luck for the rest of the week :).

So these are some of my favorite purchases from various stores that are said on the video. I've been dying to buy some wedges that my mom says is ridiculous to wear to school but oh well haha.  I love love love the leggings and school is just around the corner so I've been preparing outfits. I've also been preparing work outfits because I got a job!! Yayyy :)). I'm so excited! This job searching all summer has finally paid off. I've felt the pain of being bored and broke and it's definitely not happening again if I can help it. My schedule looks pretty tight so hopefully I can sill blog :/. I'll probably make time for it atleast 3 times a week. Every day except weekends I'll be working and going to school. My days will start at 6:00am and end at 11:00pm.

So my mom took these photos for me a couple days ago because my tripod is broken :(. I bought it used awhile ago and I have no idea when my other one is coming in. Also I planned on doing a back to school video haul but sadly my tripod is gone lol. I'll figure out a way to do it! Maybe I'll set it on my window or something and sit in a chair...idk.

So for this outfit I paired these busy leggings with a plain top and gold accessories. I just recently bought this collar tip from ebay and I think it's fabulous! Also I've been wearing this claw cuff almost with every outfit. It's just my favorite thing and my mom hates it. Haha the other day she said she wished that claw chopped off my hand so I wouldn't wear it again!! But I love her. She recently tried to help me get rid of clothes but only 5 shirts got thrown away.

School for me is starting in a week and it's kind of exciting! New school, college freshman and a whole year of picking out outfits for blogging yeah! Hopefully it'll be a great busy year :).

To Be a Kid Again

So today I just threw these shorts on with a different top and this shirt fell on the floor. Sooo I decided to wear this top when my friends came over. I haven't worn denim and a t shirt for what seems like a long time. I admit I like the feel of it, I feel a bit sporty :).

Hmm besides that I've been watching all 7 of the Harry Potter movies, made a couple of dream catchers, bought school supplies and now I'm waiting for a store to open so I can go apply! This job search is killing my self esteem man.

P.S. So I know I've been neglecting youtube for quite sometime now. I'm thinking about doing a haul soon :).
P.P.S. I've been featured on Art Becomes You and I've become a fashion contributer to Fashion Parkway. Hope you guys check it out. It'll also be on my featured page :)!

Quick Outfit!

And a quick outfit post that I never posted. It's just a simple, pinup inspired outfit with neutrals :). The whole outfit is thrifted besides the necklace which I bought from Target about 2 years ago. 

Very Blue

Hey! So yesterday I went to the mall with Alex and it was pretty uneventful. I didn't really find anything I liked because I'm so cheap haha. And for some reason, every time I go to H&M to find something, I never find anything. But everyone loves it there. Ha I never understood that. But besides that, I was gifted by Oasap with this pretty blue chiffon skirt. Paired with a simple skirt and this lovely leaf necklace from ebay, I was quite comfortable. I've always loved this bright blue but I've never seemed to buy it.

I wish I had a better backdrop. The weather lately has been rainy every day so great photos are basically a dream right now. I'm always taking photos right when it's about to rain! Since I've been back from vacation, my mind has hardly been on school and I just realized...I need school books. I'm in such deep crap if I don't have the books in two weeks lol. My procrastination has caught up with me! Hopefully I'll take some good outfit photos tomorrow. Much love to you guys :)

Casual Prints

So I wore this outfit before my vacation to Canada and I wore it out shopping with Denisse. I went with a very simple outfit, simple hair and some heels. I ended up buying an interview dress and a tank top. I don't know why but I've been hooked on this burnt orange color. I always go through color phases. Awhile ago it was pink :)

This weekend was too much lol. I went to the springs with some friends, went out to a party and then went to see the Dark Knight Rises again. I slept all day today and watched all the Harry Potter movies that I borrowed from a friend haha. 

Well I plan on job searching again tomorrow since I'm home and possibly doing a thrift haul for 'school shopping'. And I recently just purchased a bunch of shoes online! Can't wait until they get here ahh!

So now that I'm back from vacation, I'm back to blogging! I took a bit of a longer break than I expected but I'm back.I got this shirt from Forever 21 and I just love the color. I've always been a fan of burnt orange so naturally I love this top. I went a bit overboard and styled it with two different outfits with a slouchy bun. I'm a bigger fan of the printed shorts than that white skirt but that's probably because I love shorts. It was one of those days where I changed my outfit twice.

Anywhoo yesterday was pretty fun, I went to Blue Springs with some friends and now some laundry is needed to be done. There's about three piles of clothes in my room that I've ignored since I've been back haha. Hopefully I'll go back out again this weekend with it all clean. If you follow me on instagram then you'll see how my week has been! Hope you guys have a great weekend!
