belt - Modcloth (many years ago)

Y'all, it is still stupid cold outside. I'm so sick of wearing layers upon layers every time I leave the house. It seems weird to think that I could ever wear shorts and a tank top again, it just feels like winter has been here so long. You know it's bad when you start getting excited about 30 degree weather. I've taken to dressing up nice while I'm in the house so I don't go crazy. I've actually worn this exact outfit twice this week. I mean, if no one saw it did I really wear it? As long as I still smell nice, and only have a minimal amount of pet hair on my it's all good in my book. Although as soon as the camera comes out, all bets are off. That dog is a total ham. I cannot step in front of the camera in the house without Klaus running over and trying to get in on the fun. Needless to say, these photos put my pet hair on clothing limit over the line.

This is another post in collaboration with the #iamunique campaign by Unique Vintage. It's a year long campaign to celebrate how you express your own unique style, embrace your own unique body, and embody your own uniqueness. I'm a member of the Style Society along side four other awesome bloggers. I'm still so excited to be a part of something so positive like this. Right now they're actually focusing on "every body is a beach body" which I love! I'm bummed to not be participating but uh, like I said it's freezing. I don't exactly have anywhere to be wearing a swim suit. Check out their instagram for a really neat polyptch they made promoting the sentiment. (It looks better in app than online, of course.) I've actually always wanted to do a swimsuit outfit post but felt kind of silly frolicking in the water with a camera pointed at me. "Oh, don't mind me. It's for my blog." Maybe this is my year.
Hope you're having an awesome start to your week!
xoxo

  1. What kind of bike rack is that? I am about to move into an apartment w/ no space to store a bike, realizing that hanging it may be the best option.

    1. Jeff and I "built" it. It's just a shelf I had laying around and then I bought a hook to attach to the bottom and ta-daaaaa! my bike hangs from it. Super simple, super cheap, and it looks great!

  4. Looks really pretty. And I can imagine how awful the winter over there has to be (greetings from Germany). I'm happy here it seems to get warmer already.

  5. LOVE this dress! And again, love your style. And to answer that question… If you wear an outfit two days out of the week, one totally doesn't count if no one sees you! :)

    1. Thanks! I'm obsessed with my bike rack. It looked so messy just sitting there and I didn't know what to put on the wall so it ended up being perfect!!

  9. "You know it's bad when you start getting excited about 30 degree weather" lol
    I have been itching to go running, and the other day I checked the weather and thought "oh tomorrow will be a great day to run, it'll be 15 degrees warmer!" When the day came I had to cut my run short since my feet were too cold. I thought about and realized it was still below freezing, duh! That's why my feet were half frozen!

    1. Hahaha! I know exactly what you mean. I get all excited to go out on my bike without all the layers on and then realize that 30 doesn't mean that many less layers at all.

  11. Weird thing.

    I still really like your tat on the front of your leg.
    I was perusing my own blog and I discovered a post with some random stuff including a rave about that tattoo. Turns out I still like it.

    Yep.
    You win.

    1. No...? If anything I feel like I've gained weight because I haven't been too active this winter. But hey, THANKS!!! :D

      And yes, you should totally start biking. I can't imagine a workout that is more fun than riding a bike.
