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.

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!

Try On Haul No. 1

So I decided to do something a little different. This post will go side by side with my instagram story today. It’s a funny thing when you’re a small blogger and you can’t put direct links in your insta stories and can’t upload videos to your blog because of storage… you have to make due with what you have.

So I’m including screen shots and links in this post from my try on session from insta stories. Some of my favorite insta stories are when bloggers try on things they just bought, it’s like talking with a friend after shopping!

My instagram handle is @morgannprice (make sure you get the two n’s!) and I’ll get the story posted as close to posting this as possible. I know the photos below aren’t the best, lighting was an issue, but the videos on insta story will hopefully make this try on haul a better experience! 🙂

First Day of School

Anyone else get totally exhausted after the first day of class even though you don’t really do anything? Total information overload. I swear I never feel as exhausted during the school year as I do on the first day.

Even during finals. Which I’m sure sounds crazy to some people!

The most exciting part of this semester is I’m really getting into the bulk of the courses for my major, print/digital journalism. I’m most excited for the photography course. As y’all know, I love photography, but everything I know is pretty much self taught. I’ve never had any formal training.

Now lets talk about what I wore. It wasn’t this outfit. But that’s mostly because every time I plan to wear a dress, it’s windy and generally on campus it’s way windier than when I leave my house so I just don’t risk it. It was also cooler today, 80 degrees, and it tends to be pretty to cold in the buildings I’m in all day, so I actually ending up wearing jeans.

But what I really want to talk about are these shoes!

I Don’t Know What to Talk About

I’ve said before, the hardest part of blogging is coming up with a title for the post. Really. I’m also terrible at headlines for any story I write, that’s just not where my creativity works.

Also equally as difficult for a blog post, figuring out what the hell to talk about.

If I’m given a topic, I could probably talk all day about it, at least if it’s a topic I actually know something about. However, usually when I sit down to write a blog post, I stare at it for a while before I just force myself to talk… write.

Usually I just end up talking about the outfit in the photos and sometimes I just start thinking “blah blah blah, they can see it! Why am I explaining it?!” Honestly, sometimes I just want to share an outfit but I have nothing  to go along with it. But I know when I read blogs,first it’s for the photos, that’s what draws me in, but I also want to read something with it. Even if it’s just a paragraph, a blurb.

Neutrals + Straw Hat

Between this Texas heat and starting my sixth week of Monday thru Thursday 8 a.m. classes, looking presentable daily has not been a priority. I’ve been living in college t-shirts and Nike shots. Occasionally I’ll throw on jean shorts and a nicer tank if I’m feeling like it. But for the most part I’ve been going with minimal effort outfits so I can roll out of bed at the last possible moment.

It would be so easy to pull together this simple outfit too. But I don’t know if any of y’all are like this, you have to fave your favorite outfits for days when you’re feeling great. Days when you have to time to both sleep in and have time to (and motivation) to do your makeup and hair.

I can’t just waste a good outfit, even a simple but cute one, on a day when I have just 10 minutes between waking up, making coffee, and getting out the door!

Hot pink laser cut out dress

IMG_3036

Finally sharing this dress! Y’all know I usually stick with neutrals and this hot pink is certainly not something normally in my closet but it totally jumped out at me while scrolling through SheIn. The bright pink is hard to miss.

I got it while it was on sale a few months ago, this dress is normally just $17 (as of writing this on Monday, it’s only $13!) and while I usually wouldn’t go for a dress this bold, I couldn’t pass it up. I like that while it has the bright color and the cutout detail at the bottom, it’s a super easy dress and fairly simple. No need to worry about accessories and any show would go with it whether it’s sandals, flats, or wedges/heels.

Summer Layers

IMG_3222

I am definitely not one for layers in the summer. It’s Texas in June and feels like 110 degrees, layers? No thank you! I’m not even sure you’d really consider this layers? It’s not too terrible, the tank and the vest are both super light weight, it’s not even bothersome. I honestly just didn’t want to wait four more months to wear this vest, there’s no fun in buying something if you can’t wear it at least once immediately.

It’s been a while since I’ve worn a striped shirt, I’m kind of proud of myself for that! It used to be a daily occurrence, so much so I had to actually remind myself to pick something other than stripes. My style, obviously, is very simple, if possible, it gets much more simple in the summer. Usually in the summer, I rotate through the same few outfits because it gets to just be too hot to wear anything other than shorts and a tank, or a dress. I’ve kind of given myself a challenge to actually put together different outfits instead of constantly repeating the same few looks for the next four months. Will see how long that lasts, July is right around the corner and I’m sure once we get into the real depths of summer, I’ll live in Nike shorts and college tees the four days a week I have classes.

Swing Dress + Statement Necklace

IMG_2888

Do you ever have an item of clothing or piece of jewelry you love so much and want to wait for the perfect time to wear it and show it off and it ends up being months before you do? That’s how I felt with this necklace. I bought it a few months back when Baublebar first put out their line with Target and since then I’ve been dying to wear it for the blog and even real life but it just never seemed like the perfect time. Until I got this dress and it felt perfect!

This is one of two dresses I’ve purchased from SheIn.com. After seeing multiple bloggers have good experiences with them, I wanted to give them a try.  I was mostly hesitant because everything on their website is cheap and I figured there had to be a reason. I assumed the reason would be that once you get the items you ordered,they’d look nothing like what’s on their website.

I was wrong.

The best part of the website, is most items have a section that shows customer pictures, so you can see how the clothes look on real people and not just models.

I purchased two dresses and two shirts, the dresses were perfect, the shirts were not. They give a lot of measurements info online so you can get your right size, for some reason that did not work for the tops. Both tops were small in the shoulders but the dresses fit perfectly. When in doubt, sizing up instead of down is best.
