Bomber Jacket Outfit of the Day

Fashion, Lifestyle, simplicity, Slow Fashion, style, Uncategorized

Hey, you guys welcome back to Fashion Fridays. So I’m going to keep this post pretty quick because I let time get away from me today and I still have quite a bit to do before my trip to Spain and I want to be done with all of the errand running by the end of this weekend.

So let’s jump right into this outfit of the day post! Once again, I was in Georgetown and wanted to take pictures of my super casual outfit. Honestly, I think the majority of my outfits are pretty casual, but that’s kind of how I like it.I wore my third favorite pair of jeans from American Eagle and paired it with a cropped tank top because it got really hot that afternoon. Although, I was still pretty hot because I was in black and dark wash jeans so that didn’t help all too much.

However, the main attraction of this outfit is the bomber jacket that I purchased from Boohoo. I’m the worst because I am definitely not supposed to be buying fast fashion, but this was one of those times I had to suck it up. I had to suck it up because it’s kind of perfect for days that start off really cool and end up super hot and then end up cool by nightfall.

The material of the jacket is pretty thin, but it’s also pretty decent quality considering I only paid $10 for it. Something I want to bring up in a post sometime soon is mixing fast fashion with slow fashion because it is pretty doable if you know what you’re trying to achieve. I also have to admit that Boohoo tends to have some pretty decent quality items for very cheap.

Anyway, I finished off the outfit with my favorite black and white vans and went on about my day. Also, the sunglasses that I feel like have been in all of my outfits are Quay’s! Alright, I have to go now! Thanks for reading!

OOTD: Happy Autumnal Equinox

Beauty, Fashion, Hair Care, Lifestyle, Minimalism, simplicity, Slow Fashion, style, Uncategorized

Happy Autumnal Equinox everyone! You all should know by now that I’m happy because this means the hot gross weather will soon be gone! Seriously, I’m getting pretty tired of sweating in places I’d rather not be sweating!

Anywho, welcome back to Fashion Fridays! It seems like it’s been weeks since I’ve posted an outfit of the day but it’s only been just one week. It seems the last few times I have worn a picture worthy outfit I’ve been in Georgetown, D.C. I really love it there because it’s so cosmopolitan, but also so historic. If you ever find yourself in the Washington, D.C. area then definitely visit Georgetown.

Remember a few posts back when I was speaking of future purchases? Well, I got my hands on that perfect American Apparel tee dress. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be wearing it A LOT. I can wear it out dancing, to happy hour, or just to the coffee shop to chill or work. When I wore it to Georgetown two days ago, I was just working in the coffee shop, so I dressed it down.

I paired it with some super old booties from Forever 21. I’m in need of some casual flat ankle booties or at least I will be. I can feel these boots starting to wear at the soles and that just doesn’t seem safe.

I also paired the dress with a denim jacket from Levi’s…at least I started off that way. Of course around noon, it got pretty hot out and the jacket had to come off. It was even a little hot for the dress considering it is all black. I may have to pull this back out on a cooler or even cloudier day for sure.

Oh, and my curls are twisted up into cute little twists. I decided to do this one day because I was so sick of styling my hair. I also didn’t want to add extensions so this was a great happy medium for me. What do you all think?

That’s all for today! Check back Monday for a new post!

Fall Transition Outfit of the Day

Fashion, Lifestyle, simplicity, Slow Fashion, style

Last night, I was thinking that I’d start making Fridays fashion Friday’s since it almost fall and that’s basically the best time of the year. I very much plan on posting a ton of outfit of the days this year on this here blog as well as on my Instagram. Anywho, let’s get on with today’s outfit of the day!

IMG_6606

Last week I was in Georgetown and really wanted to take pictures and explore the area. So I wore my beloved boyfriend jeans and my cropped hoodie. I then layered the hoodie with my faux leather jacket.

IMG_6607

Jeans: Lucky Brand

Hoodie: Forever 21

Jacket: TJMaxx

Shoes: Converse

Sunglasses: NastyGal

As for the shoes, I decided to go for my classic white high-top Chucks. I also tied the whole outfit together with sunglasses. I love wearing sunglasses as a necklace as well as their intended use.

I may need to bring these Chucks back out more often because I’m kind of in love with them, but I’m also afraid to get them dirty. I think I’ll just have to suck that up and wear them anyway.

So that’s all for today. Check back in next Friday for another outfit of the day and check back in on Monday for another post!

Good Hair Day and OOTD

Fashion, Hair Care, Lifestyle, Natural, simplicity, Slow Fashion, style

It seems like I’m always trying to get my hair to do right the majority of the time. Most of the time it sits just fine on top my cute little head until about Day 4. At that point, it gets dry, tangled and dull looking.

I’m aware that all I need to do is add moisture back, which I typically do but for some reason, it just never truly gets moisturized. So, I’m not going to make this all long and drawn out, but last night I did an Ayurveda oil pre-poo and then I conditioned just like normal. When I was drying my hair it was soaking wet and continued to drip water as I was braiding it….this never EVER happens. My hair is usually dry within 15 minutes after washing. This is when I realized that my hair wasn’t retaining moisture like it should be and was literally sucking up any moisture that it possibly could. I will expand on the Ayurveda world in another blog post.

Anyway, this is my hair (spot the tiny feather) today as well as my outfit of the day. These Madewell shorts are everything to me. I was getting real sick of denim shorts riding up in the hot, humid weather.

IMG_6187-1

They’re not too loose but not too tight and they sit perfectly just below my natural waist. I love how lightweight the cotton/viscose fabric is and it’s just great to wear in this hot summer weather.

The coolest part is that the shorts have these ties on the side that give the shorts a little more oomph. The only thing is, I wish these had pockets!! Pockets are always welcome in my wardrobe!

I paired the wonderful shorts with a bodysuit, which I did on a whim because I need to wash my white shirts. I actually like the look of the bodysuit almost better than a regular white tee. I think I may need a white bodysuit…

Well, that’s it for today. I promise I will give an update on the Ayurvedic hair treatments because that is something I NEED to talk about. Catch me on Wednesday for another post about something!

Coffee & Chill Outfit of the Day

Beauty, Fashion, Lifestyle, Slow Fashion, style

I’m calling it now that today is just going to be a strange day. It’s cloudy and sunny at the same time and it’s threating to rain. It’s been awhile since I’ve written a fashion post. So, why not write one today!?

For some reason, it was difficult to capture a good picture today. The cloudy sunshine along with the wind was throwing off every shot. I managed to get a couple of good ones while sitting at Starbucks.

I only came here for a frappuccino and to get this blog post written and posted in a timely manner. I put on my Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar Skin Tint and my Tarte double-sided eyeliner. Then I threw on some leggings and my new favorite Madewell muscle tee.

IMG_5626.jpg

Initially, I had this outfit on with a denim jacket, but it looked a little juvenile when I put it all together. I also threw on my vans, which I’ve been wearing the hell out of lately. I’m probably going to need some new shoe strings by the time Summer actually hits.

I really like this for just chilling in and working from home (Starbucks) in. It’s definitely not an outfit I’d go to happy hour in. I think if I threw on some chunky heels and a cute kimono, I’d have a going out outfit.

IMG_3600.jpg

I also wanted to include these American Eagle Outfitters shorts in this post because I don’t know when I’ll make a separate post about them. I got these this weekend because it was time for some new shorts. I’m a size four now, which actually makes me happy! I’ve been working out every other day for four weeks now and I’m clearly getting some results…especially them booty gains! I’m pretty much done shopping for Summer clothing unless I find something that just really cute. I should have a post up later this week of my new fashions, so look out for that.

Thanks for reading!

The Stylish, yet Cozy Outfit of the Day

Fashion, Lifestyle, Minimalism, Slow Fashion, style

It’s Monday again and it’s freezing! Today it’s supposedly 40 degrees but it feels about maybe 10 degrees! Tomorrow it’s supposed to snow too. Normally I’d be pretty damn upset that it was snowing in March, but considering we barely had a winter – I’m all for it! In fact, I don’t really mind bundling up in a blanket with some piping hot tea and a good book/movie.

Anyway, today I got out and stretched my legs a little bit before the big snow day here in the D.C area. If you want to see what all I did today, check out my Instagram @chelsiiohkay. I recently started posting on the Insta story and I think I might be addicted to it now. I didn’t really do too much but I would still love a follow! 🙂

Knowing that I was leaving the house in this cold weather, I wanted to take some pictures for the blog! So I slayed my makeup and put on a cozy, yet cute outfit.

You guys have seen this cropped top from & Other Stories for like the millionth time now. What can I say? I love this top! I paired it with my Lucky Jeans as always and my handy dandy Target boots.

IMG_5190

I have this love-hate relationship with my hair because it pretty much does what it wants to do. It somehow always looks messy and neat at the same time…maybe it’s mirroring my personality. If you were wondering the lip color…it’s the Sephora brand lip stain in Crimson Crush.

IMG_5165

Of course, I didn’t go out just with this top on because I would have frozen my ass off! No, I wore this amazing jacket that I’m borrowing/stealing from my beautiful, amazing mother. I borrow/steal all of her stuff because that’s what daughters do right? Anyway, she purchased an All Saints coat at the beginning of the year and it’s finally been cold enough (also my turn) to wear! I absolutely love everything in All Saints and would buy up the whole store if I could. I’m planning on saving up and buying one of my own jackets or dresses from there. I think this coat might needs it’s own blog post too!

So, that was my outfit for today! The next few days I’ll probably be trapped inside because of the snowstorm that is heading my way. Hopefully, I don’t get cabin fever, but I’m almost counting on it. Also, if you’re going to be stuck in the snowstorm as well, please stay safe out there!

Thanks for reading.
