Boyfriend's Plaid

(plaid shirt: mike's | leggings: h&m | boots: reitman's | beanie: roots | belt: pink chandelier | purse: roots | bangles: assorted)

I am sadly all done with my lovely strand of days off work. In my time off, I finished the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, cleaned my room and cleaned it again, caught up on a month's worth of sleep, read to my little heart's desire, and spent quality time with Mike, Sarah, and Alyssa. I miss those days already.

Sarah returned home on Monday, so it turned into a day of errands and running around town with Mike. I also added some spice and spontaneity to my day by going for a tan and buying a dress from a store I have never before shopped at! Such non-Angela activities.

Mike left his shirt at my house, and naturally, upon viewing a new item of clothing with oodles of outfit potential, I snatched it up for my day of errands. Mike is a pretty tall guy, but the shirt was still much bigger than I expected. I MacGyvered the situation by overlapping, rolling, and belting. Ta-da! Also, one might assume I am obsessed with my boyfriend by the looks of this outfit. Not only am I wearing his shirt, I am also wearing a hat and purse which he bought for me. He is a pretty great guy and I probably am his #1 fan. But I am hoping that what we take from my outfit is simply that Mike has excellent taste.

Apparently I am all about dat #beanielife and dem #brownaccents these days. I suppose once I find something I like, I throw myself into it whole-heartedly. Wild horses can't tear me away from my brown boots and Roots bag. And beanies also happen to be an excellent means to cover up a lazy-hair day, which I've had my fair share of over the past week. Still- I will work on that whole "putting together creative outfits since I have a blog in which I feature outfits as though they are worth featuring" if you forgive me of my obsessive brown-boots-wearing and occasional lazy hair days. Love you guys.

  4. You are the most adorable thing ever and literally your style is amazing. I wouldn't have ever guessed you are wearing his shirt!! Werk it girrrrl, you look BOMB! Whenever I try to wear my man's shirts I usually look like a dyke hobo. If that means anything.

    I used to have an endless collection of beanies!! I wore all of them out eventually haha and just haven't been able to find any good fitting ones anymore. Yours is making me crave a good beanie. That sounded so incredibly weird, so I'll end it on that note.
