I must admit this is one boring Saturday for me. I am doing all my class assignments a week in advance so that I am able to be stress and homework-free next weekend. In case you don’t know, Bonnaroo is next weekend and I am super excited about that but for now, i have to bite this bullet. Perhaps, I’ll take my studying to Starbucks in order to fight the boredom that comes with a quiet apartment.

I bought this pretty lace pencil skirt a few months ago because I just love lace. The color and the fabric are very nice and I was so surprised that I found this at Forever 21. I wanted to keep things simple today because my energy levels have been quite low. I paired the skirt with a simple black stop and black heels.

I am finally back in town and on my computer! Yay! Life without the internet is hard people!!! Ok, I’m done with the exclamation points. I am happy that I am back in the comfort of my home but sadly I am not 100% settled in. I have to unpack ( I did some serious shopping at the Outlet Malls) and do some serious catching up on school work. Today’s outfit is simple and to the point. I wore denim on denim today and added a bit of chic by wearing gold accents ( shoes, watch etc…).What I love about this outfit is that it is simple and chic – this is definitely one of those laid back easy going outfits.
Coat: American Apparel ( Purchased at Goodwill )
When in doubt, wear neutrals. That is the rule I have made for myself when I have absolutely no idea what to wear and just want to rush out the door. My second rule? When in doubt, wear a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. This could be any t-shirt and jeans really. Finally, my last rule: when in doubt, wear heels and a jacket ( just in case it gets chilly). Of course, if you are going somewhere extremely casual then wear comfy shoes but do take your jacket. This is a simple look that can be pulled off any day really. It requires minimal effort, its simple and it doesn’t look like you tried too hard, which in my case, I didn’t.
The jeans I bought at the Gap last year and it is their boyfriend jeans. I did not buy them ripped like that actually. What really happened is I have the biggest tights and knees. Whenever, I bend or crouch down the small tear that they had turned into a huge tear. Luckily, I don’t care so I think they accidentally turned out pretty well. I paired the jeans with a simple tank, a jacket and these gorgeous heels I scored at Steve Madden two weeks ago for $19.99. Lucky girl. The purse happens to be my favorite. I bought it a thrift store for $2.00.

Ok, so today was a rather strange day. We got “fall” like weather in Miami and I must admit, I was one happy camper. Finally, we have opened our doors to a cool breeze, very low humidity and a “feather weight” chill. It was perfect.
Since the weather was soooo lovely today, the weather inspired my outfit. I decided to sport these black legging jeans from the gap, liquid chunky boots from the gap and a green top I bought at my local Marshall’s. The outfit was cool enough for the breeze but light enough for the heat. If there is one amazing things about this city, is that you need to learn how to dress for it. Our winters are extremely mild (snowbirds don’t even call them winters) and our summers are very hot. I topped this look by picking up my hair and a bold oxford blood lip. I wanted my outfit to represent the dark colors of fall.
