I cannot believe I have resorted to this, but here's a very, very quick (and incomplete) outfit of the day.
If you can imagine, I paired these with my white gold-toe capped flats. I usually keep my school outfits this simple! 
I love these 'leggings' because they fit like a glove and have the cutest zipper detail on the inside at the ankle area (check out the 'more>' picture).

The weather is getting progressively warmer, and I am way more excited than shortshorts are for spring/summer.

Twas 51º...

... and I have a completely valid excuse for this spring-veered outfit.

It sounds crazy, but I had a dream where I went through a day's events and everything seemed totally normal. Including the weather report that "tomorrow will be sunny and 70!" so naturally I woke up super pumped and wore this.

I know, I know.. 
I was incepted.

Thrifty Nifty

Alright, now I have said before that I'm currently quite addicted to thrifting...

and I was not kitten.

Introducing the Windbreaker & Leather Belt

Windbreaker: Gap
It has so many fun pockets with clips and rings for attaching life-saving items (or just whatever) adding to its utility look. I love that the color is so versatile for many outfits, and the zipped in hood is WAY cool. 
The pictures do not do the olive justice.

Leather Belt: Kenneth Cole
The color is what grabbed me initially. The silver buckle was so cute. The quality leather sold me. What more can I say, this belt is so classic!

I've already worn the jacket on several occasions, mostly to test it out. Who knew, windbreakers really live up to their name!

You've already seen the Harry Potter inspired scarf that I thrifted, but did you know I also carried a load of other goodies home?

Well, now you do!

I'm beyond excited to start off the new year with these staples. I still have a wishlist of necessary clothes, however I'm more than satisfied with these. Be ready for many outfits including one (if not as many as I can layer) of these!
Bear with me, the photos don't always do these pieces justice!

All were found at Goodwill, my new thrift go-to. Prices are amazingly low, and the quality is impressively high (if you pay close attention to brand, fabric, and inspection!).

Denim Gap Shorts (less than $3)

Banana Republic Denim Shirt (less than $5)
