WIWW Boots, Finally! 31 Days of LOVE

Howdy! If your new to this neck of the woods, I started documenting my outfits in hopes it would encourage me to get out of my college-girl uniform: yoga pants and t-shirts. So far, so good!

Here's what I wore this week. 
Oh, just for clarification, I do, in fact, get dressed on days I don't share here. I just typically forget to take pictures!

No, don't shield your eyes from my legs, they are white tights, not untanned legs.
I wore this student teaching.
Dress: Franchescas, Gift
Tights: Brand new from Goodwill
Shoes: Target
Watch: Target
Necklace: Made by me
Earrings: Fossil
See! I don't lie! They ARE tights. 
that also may be hiding my super white legs, shh! Don't tell.

Now I realize you're probably thinking "HOLD UP sista, you just said you do this to get OUT of yoga pants, and here you are in said yoga pants." and girl, I getcha. 
But, a time comes in a young girl's life where you have to disobey the rules. and when the Color Rad run comes to town, you do. 
Also note: I did my first 5K.
Oh wait? I didn't tell you about that? Coming soon, I swear!
I don't think you really would want to replicate this stunning ensemble, but in case, everything is from target. Except the shoes.  Those are from Kohls. Oh, and the wonderful rainbow of colors splattered all over me was provided via the run. 

I got this outfit idea from this pin:
It looked like the perfect LBD outfit and was dressy enough to wear to teach!
Here's my take
I was pleased that I had actually everything I needed to replicate this look! Minus the belt, they annoy me. 
Dress: Old Navy via yard sale
Polka dot Tights: Brand new from Goodwill (if that grosses you out sorry...but, they were still in their original packaging! Which were donated by Target stores by the way.)
Boots: Frye via Last Call
I am so happy I can finally start wearing these boots. I just love them. They make me happy. 

Scarf: souvenir from Paris
Watch: Target
Earrings: Target 

I got this outfit inspiration from none other than The Pleated Poppy!
I thought it was perfect for a casual, but put together look!

I wish I was half as pretty (and thin!) as her, but here's my take:
Jacket: LOFT via Goodwill
Jeans: LOFT
Shoes: Toms 

and that's it for this week but I honestly can't wait for next week. Here's why. 
I'm starting a new outfit challenge for the month of November. Drumroll......
Every wednesday, I'm going to share some outfits that I wore that came straight from Pinterest. I love getting fashion inspiration there and I always seem to pin them and never actually do anything with it. Hopefully by making this challenge I will finally start using those pins! The posts will be like what I did above: I'll share the inspiration picture and then show you my spin/take. 
 I can't wait!

Linking up here:


  1. All of your outfits are so adorable! (My white legs do a pretty good job of impersonating white tights, too....)

  2. Amber, you look fabulous in the weekend casual! Hope you don't mind that I copied it to my laptop. :)

  3. You know what's sad? My legs ARE that white. No tights needed. And I'm so jealous of your style! So cute!

    1. haha, not to worry... mine are too! Thanks Laura!

  4. I love your white lace tights! And that yellow belt with the turquoise dress is so fun!
    I'm visiting from the WIWW linkup!
