Black and Brown

Finally another outfit post! It took so long because school started to catch up to me (shout out to my fellow procrastinators!) So I was either doing a ton of homework or exhausted and just taking time to relax and watch Netflix!

However, now that the semester has ended, I have a number of outfit posts planned out and ready to go.

Until I got this sweater a few years ago, I hated pairing black and brown together. Now I wear it more than anything else in my closet and it’s almost always with black jeans or leggings. It’s especially perfect for this crazy Texas weather because it isn’t too thick so those days when it’s freezing in the morning and then warmer in the afternoon, this doesn’t get uncomfortable.

THE 2017 GUIDE TO GIVING GIFTS TO THE SPORTS FANS OF THE WORLD

I had so much fun putting together last year’s “guide” so I decided to do another one this year. Some of these things I have and love, others are just items on my Christmas list!

 

I love coffee mugs, I have way too many but that doesn’t stop me from buying or wanting even more.  So why not a baseball related one? This etsy shop not only has this print on mugs, but prints for walls and shirts. Also a ton more related to other sports.

 

 

I’m a total sucker for a Wizard of Oz quote with a baseball relation and stamped on a coffee mug? I’m sold!

 

 

 

And to fill up those coffee cups, you’re gonna need some coffee! So why not Pudge coffee?? Yes this is a real thing and it’s so good!

 

 

 

I got this Beltre phone case aka the best phone case ever. It’s the only Ranger phone case Cutting Edge Cases has but who else would a Ranger fan want? They mostly sell hockey and football related cases

Suede Skirt

Last fall I mentioned that I love the suede skirt trend. But I didn’t like the fit of any of the one’s I tried on. The cut of most were either too straight or too narrow. It’d fit in the hips but no where else. Or I felt like a complete sausage.

I wrote off the trend as one that just wasn’t for me. But this year when it came back and I just couldn’t let it go. I was determined to find one for me.

When I saw this one on Old Navy’s website, I was totally convinced I’d hate it on me but still determined to try it on just so my stubborn self could get it out of my head.

You know,  like when you get a song stuck in your head and the only way to get it out is to listen to it.

But to my surprise, the skirt was perfect.

I wore it three times in the first week after buying it.

Beauty Favorites No. 4

It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty post and talked about my favorite makeup products. I’ve recently tried some new things and gone back to a few old and thought I’d share what I’ve been reaching for daily… or at least the days I’m going my makeup!

MAKEUP

Laura Mercier hydration primer– This works miracles! Ok that’s an exaggeration… but it’s great if you have dry skin. It doesn’t make you oily or greasy as the day goes on but it makes foundation look so smooth. (For what it’s worth, I tried this with the silk creme foundation and returned the foundation. Totally not worth the hype in my opinion. Definitely didn’t have the coverage, wasn’t easy to blend, was slightly yellow in tone, and just overall didn’t look or feel good on my skin.)

Laura Mercier translucent powder– When I returned the foundation, I exchanged it for a travel size of the powder and I love it. Even though I have dry skin, I always powder lightly. Mostly it’s out of habit of setting foundation for the last few years, but also even though my skin is dry, I feel like throughout the day I get oily if I don’t powder.

23 Facts About Me

I decided for my 23rd birthday I would share some facts about myself! I’m sure I’ve mentioned a majority of these at some point in the last three years I’ve had this blog but I figured it never hurts to introduce yourself again, right?

  1. 23 is my favorite number, I think I just decided this since I was born on the 23rd but I also tend to notice the number a lot. Probably because I’m hyper aware of it. Also, as a kid I decided I had to have a favorite number and 23 was it.
  2. I’m an only child.
  3. I never played on a sports team but in 5th grade we had a kickball tournament and my team was in first place… so I’ll always have that accomplishment! 😂
  4. When I was a kid, every Saturday I went to my Grandparent’s house and every Saturday my grandma and I would eat Macaroni and Cheese for lunch. This went on for at least three years. And I mean every Saturday.
  5. I never really collected anything until the last few years, I started collecting Texas Ranger bobble heads.
  6. Photography is the first thing I really remember loving to do. On holidays and other family gatherings, I used to take my Aunt’s Canon camera and just run around the house taking photos of everyone.
  7. My favorite movie is Sweet Home Alabama.
  8. I was born 10 weeks early and came home a week before Christmas. I still have small scars on my hands and feet from the IVs. Apparently I also had IVs in my head that I would pull out. 😳
  9. I love listening to music but I’ve never been to a real concert. Although, I did see Lifehouse at a fall festival five years ago.
  10. I met my best friend in preschool, we’ve been friends for 20 years and I’m pretty sure we were meant to be twins.👯
  11. My favorite animal is a moose.

Tee Dress Two Ways

IMG_3916

One of my biggest problems when it comes to style, is learning to wear an outfit more than one way. I’m a creature of habit, if I find something I like I stick with it. I order the same things from restaurants and rarely try something new, why mess with a good thing?

When it comes to an outfit, if I still a shirt or a dress one way, that’s pretty much the only way I’ll wear it. Because I know it works!

So I “challenged” myself for this post. Which really wasn’t too much of a challenge but hey, I tried!

My style is obviously casual, that’s what I like and I’m a full-time college student so I don’t really have a need to wear anything to fancy.

So basically I styled this dress casually and then like a step or two up from casual.

Musings No.7

So I wanted to share some things that I’ve already shared on Instagram… and also elaborate on them because some times you can only put so much in an insta caption before people just don’t care anymore, right? I mean at least on my own blog, y’all just expect me to go on and on and on. Or at least I hope you do!

And maybe you don’t see my instagram posts because you don’t follow me on there… or because instagram has that stupid algorithm now so nobody sees anything these days.

Either way, now you’ll see them. And with links for things featured in it, so even better!

I am a brand ambassador for thegamedaychic.com and they have the most amazing shirts and caps for any and all game days! Baseball, college football, NFL, they’re all perfect! Even better, if you use the code MorganP15, you can get 15% off your order!

The Perfect Striped Button Down

I’ve always loved button down shirts… but not necessarily on me. I like more casual wear and something about a collared shirt just never looked right on me. At least that’s what I thought.

I’ve talked about how much I love stripes, it’s pretty obvious just by scrolling through my blog or instagram so I was really happy when I ordered this shirt and loved it instantly. It’s not super thin, but definitely doesn’t feel heavy, which is nice since Texas hasn’t gotten the memo that it’s fall. It’s over-sized, which I love in general but also  doesn’t seem so business-y since that’s not my style. Basically it doesn’t make me feel like I’m trying too hard I guess!

Fall Floral

It still doesn’t feel like fall in Texas but that’s not stopping me from dressing a little more like that. Which really just means wearing jeans instead of shorts but I’ll take what I can get.

Let me give you a little behind the scenes of taking these photos.

First, it was hot. The clouds may have helped these photos look a little more fall like since the sun wasn’t intense but they definitely didn’t help make it feel anything like fall. And even though it was cloudy, I could barely keep my eyes open.

Which would be the reason why I’m looking down or away from the camera, otherwise I’d be squinting the whole time. The struggle of having sensitive eyes, I guess!
