I can feel the carpal tunnel already

I can feel the carpal tunnel already

Hi again!

We have made it to hump day, and of course the final day to run around like a crazy person collecting 20 pound birds and absurd amounts of dinner rolls. The craziest part to me is that Thanksgiving is such a quick holiday. One day of excess eating and then Christmas starts in full force with shopping, candy cane eating, and SANTA! I have always wondered who thought it would be a good idea for bulk shopping the day after Thanksgiving.. the bloat is real.

But the best part about that is you can completely avoid the terrible fitting room experiences by hunkering down in front of your computer and doing some diligent online shopping. Then your purchases take a few days to get here, and by then you have worked off a majority of your feast and everything looks way cuter.. trust me. πŸ™‚

You won’t even be able to go onto the internet and attempt to shop without thinking about my shining face.. you’re welcome.

Hey cutenesses,

It’s a Tuesday and a good day if you ask me. I only have one more day of class until a good ol’ 4 day weekend and I really cannot be more thrilled. I can surely tell you that I am much more excited to eat turkey than study the neural pathways one more damn time. During the boringness that is science classes at UNR, I take the time to plan my outfit for Thanksgiving.. so that way I can help you do the same.

I am just going to tell you now to skip the bedazzled sweatpants and ratty zip ups and opt for a cuter look. Your outfit needs to scream “I am absolutely the star of this family affair, but watch yourself because I am out for blood when it comes to my food”. In reality, your outfit should be what the family is thankful for.. girlfriend, give em something to talk about all the way up until Christmas Eve.. in a good way though.

I plan to wear something cute but comfy. Real clichΓ©, I know. I love the idea of a cute sweater and some leggings, or you could even get wild with a little dress/skirt action. Who knows, just throwing some ideas out there?? I would really advise avoiding any outfits that look like they may also be worn by your great great grandmother, and maybe those that are only in fashion in late night clubs. There is nothing worse than being poorly dressed for an occasion.. or having to tell the 5th relative in a row that you really don’t know what you are going to do after college.

But these ideas will take all of the guesswork out of your wardrobe choices come Thursday. πŸ™‚ Since I know I am cutting it a little close on the shopping train, you can even wear these looks to some upcoming holiday parties, Christmas in general, or just a night when you wanna look cute and festive.

Also please appreciate my neutral color scheme because there is nothing better than matching the leaves for just a little longer before they live us and get covered in snow this winter. Get into that wardrobe and pick out that outfit ASAP!

Happy Thanksgiving! <3

A little bit of back, not a lot of front

A little bit of back, not a lot of front

Hiya,

I don’t even know where these titles are coming from anymore.. I just know that I feel weird typing them. My brain throws some weird things out there and half of the time I think to myself, I wonder what people would think if they heard 90% of what I think but don’t say out loud. You should feel lucky that you only get to read the filtered 10%. I swear I am saving you.

Very important points of discussion in our world today but I want to talk to you about the most important one.. Did you know that showing your bare back is the new cleavage?! Shocking, I know. But apparently these days there is something spicy about a plain old back. So pull that neck line up and show off that backside, girl.

A great upside to backless tops is that your dad, brother, or any other male that has a pulse will greet you with the comment: “You forgot the rest of your shirt.” It doesn’t get funnier every time, but just laugh because it makes them feel better. πŸ˜‰ Really though, a backless shirt or two is a great addition to your wardrobe. You can wear it with a cute bralette or go crazy and bare it all from the lower back, all the way up. You could even save money on bras that way too! look at me saving your money while I tell you to spend it. πŸ™‚

I love a high neck top with an open-back because it kinda gives the vibe that I am all covered up, and then BAM turn it around and I lost the whole back half of my shirt. It’s a real fun surprise. Also, you can go flowy or tight, patterned or solid, or cropped or full length and a backless top will always be the right way to go. Here are a few to choose from, from me to you. <3

So remember that you can’t go frontless and that backless is really the only way to go! I hope you love them all.
