Kickin’ it Casual

There were a few days here and there the past few weeks that were so warm it was almost like I was in a different state. I thoroughly enjoy it. There are few things in the world I hate more than having to layer up with bulky winter coats, so being able to head out without one on is perfection.

I adore knit hats. I used to be a winter hat only kind of person, same with sunglasses. I would ONLY wear aviators because I thought everything else looked weird on me. I blame it all on my small head. Anyway, since I loved winter hats so much I own like 100 of them…well that’s a small exaggeration but you get the picture. Also, have you tried on American Eagle jeans yet? I’m actually kind of obsessed. They fit SO GOOD like they are custom made for me. The jegging jeans are insanely comfortable and the fact that they run in shorter sizes, YES. Amazing.

Too bad the next time I’ll be wearing this outfit no one will be able to see the lovely quilted detail and patchwork sleeves because it’ll be under layers and layers of winter gear. BOO. So now it’s time to announce my giveaway winner!!! Congratulations to Erica McGuire! You have won $100 to Amy Coe at Babies R’ Us! Please e-mail me at TheRachel.Ross@yahoo.com to claim it!

If you’re looking for an easy way to wear a crop top into the cooler months, look for one that is long sleeved. You’re not going to get the same breezy summer look as you would with a short sleeve or tank crop top, but since it’s the winter I wouldn’t really think that’s a look you’re going for right now anyway. Also, this one in particular has a little extra length than the normal crops, so you’re not exposing too much to the cold.

I love these pants. They’re like high waisted track pants that tie around the waist in the most flattering spot! I snagged them almost two years ago from Forever21 and they’re all over the place now. Everyone should own a pair, they’re super easy to dress up or down, as well as being comfortable and flattering. After a night out in this outfit I slipped on my favorite Nine West slip on sneaks to make this look a little more relaxed.¬†IMG_7818 IMG_7822 IMG_7823linea pelle bagThe weather yesterday was simply amazing, wasn’t it? If it could stay like this until Christmas day, then snow, then get warm again I’d be perfectly happy. Anwyay! Don’t forget to shop my Mavatar collection by clicking the button below!

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!
