Dead or Alive

You ever have one of those treat yo’self moments? Well duh, of course you have. Mine usually come when I’m buying donuts, to be quite honest, but every once in a while I like to treat mahself to something I feel like I might live in. This Skull Cashmere sweater was definitely one of those things.

I purchased this sweater between my birthday and Christmas and really had no where to wear it for a while. I begged people to take me out so I had an excuse, LOL. Now I pretty much wear it once a week. I throw it on with these leather leggings or black skinny jeans. When the weather starts to get a little warmer I foresee myself wearing it tucked into a black mini-skirt with my over the knee boots. Soon guys! So soon. (we hope!) It’s cashmere, so it’s obviously soft AF. I bought a size medium so it hangs a little loose. There is nothing I hate more than a tight uncomfortable sweater and I like the way the baggy tops look paired with leather leggings.

Street Art Style

I don’t know when this became a thing, but all over Monmouth County there is amazing, captivating art work being done on the sides of almost every building. Asbury is  littered with different art from tiny little decals you might not even notice to giant murals decorating the sides of the tallest buildings. Long Branch started to do the same thing a couple years back, then hit a lull, and now it seems as though they’re jumping on board again. I love it. Every time I drive through town there is something new to see, much like this dope ass mural we stopped to take some pictures in front of.

As usual! Use my code THERACHELROSS at ditto.com to get your first month subscription to designer eyewear fo’ free! I’m addicted to this website, as I’ve mentioned 1,000,000 million times, no exaggeration. For $24 a month you can borrow from a variety of different name brand designer sunglasses and there are few things in life I enjoy more than borrowing something to add to my wardrobe without the commitment of buying it, ha. IMG_8274IMG_8279IMG_8280

This is the outfit I wore to that concert a few weeks back when I mentioned I had worn these boots all night with zero complaints. I normally wear them with mini dresses but throwing them on over leather leggings looks pretty phenomenal as well. I made the mistake of wearing these leggings while pregnant with Kennedy so I kind of stretched them out a bit. I think it may be time to get myself a few pair, ha.

So apparently this tank top was on sale and is no longer available, and I can’t find this flannel on Forever21’s website anymore either. womp womp. I’ve linked to similar styles above in the outfit description. Forever21 does have very similar styles available, exact colors and whatnot, however, it happens to be in the mens section. Which is fine. Flannels are usually made to fit a little looser anyway, so this is one item you can definitely shop from your guy’s closet, just choose a smaller size of course, and you’re good to go!

Casual Hump Day

The title of this post just made me laugh out loud… I kind of meant it as like, casual Friday, but it’s Hump Day, so you know, casual Hump Day… I’m watching Anchorman 2, I blame it on their sick humor. Please don’t go out and casually hump anyone.

This shirt is actually a pajama top… which is quite fitting because for the last 6 days I have been basically dying with “gastrointestinitis.” SO I pretty much just laid around in my pajamas since last Thursday praying for death. Not really, but really. On Saturday I was so sick my parents had to come pick up the girls in the morning and as soon as they left my husband force fed me Nyquil and I slept until Sunday. I woke up maybe twice to pee. Soooooo yeah, I’m feeling better now THANK YOU LAWD. The point being, slowly dying or not, still gotta look cute. Or at least wear cute clothes.  [See how I previously styled this shirt for Sunday brunch here).

Side note; these are my new favorite shoes. You would think that because they’re, like, holy? (I honestly can’t think of the word right now, I’m still so fatigued ha) that my feet would be cold, but they weren’t. AND they’re the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I feel like I say that a lot but in all honesty guys, it’s like walking around on miniature clouds.

Also! Since being sick I have finished/caught up with every show that we are currently watching. We need a new show to get hooked on, so leave some suggestions! Much appreciated. Ok guys, it took a lot out of me writing this post. I’m going to go take a nap now ;] Hope you are all having a much better week and a fantastic hump day!
