Maybe Lately




Hello world :D

Portland has actually been quite pretty lately. At least in between the clouds and rain. This has been a funny week. Two pants posts in a very short time span. Truth is, I generally don't wear pants. It just feels more comfortable to me. It was sort of silly because I wore jeans to class a few weeks ago, and some girl even went out of her way to tell me I looked (still cute) but casual and that it was odd to see me in pants.

I like these though. Rolled up, I think they are perfectly spring appropriate. Not to mention, they fit me pretty much perfectly. I can see myself wearing them a lot in the future.





Also a bit silly: I found this shirt for myself when I was Mothers Day shopping for both my mom and Robert's mom. I found them both cute things and felt a little silly for buying myself something--but how often do you find an adorable eight dollar shirt from Banana Republic? I couldn't resist considering the price.



shirt: Banana Republic
pants: thrifted
belt: Fossil, thrifted
flats: Old Navy
hair bow: F21
earrings: gifted from Robert's mom


Also, I've found the dress I'm going to wear to Robert's graduation--which is an outside, semi-casual sort of thing. I was so surprised. It's from Forever 21 and was only $17.80. But it's basically perfect. And everything I was looking for. Now I've just got to find a equally adorable sun hat to match.



Also, getting busier with school. Got to, got to stay on top of things and not let my blog capture my attention as much as it has been. Still new at this, still trying to find some sort of balance. Education comes first after all :)

  1. You look very good Lea, as good as you look in dresses, skirts or shorts. This outfit is perfect! I really want to find a pair of trousers like those, but not lucky in the trouser department while thrifting, all I find are dresses and blouses (which is great too!) but I really want a pair of high waisted trousers that suit me well like those look on you.
    Also your dress for your boyfriend's graduation is so so pretty! I'd get it right away. Well now that Forever 21 is finally opening soon in London I might find it.


    PS: I featured on my latest post, check it out ;)

  3. that dress is perfect for your boyfriend's grad! Its so sweet and chic :) btw thanks SO MUCH for following me! ;___; your so awesome! After reviving my blog from what a disaster it was going with during my art days, its come a long way considering its a fashion blog now...lol When I start college I was headstrong into going to Visual Arts but after 4 years wasted, I got a diploma and certificate. I couldn't get a job with either. So I finally headed a totally different route and dove into Visual Merchandising, it was the best choice I made in my life. Even though I'm not close with any of my classmates, I love the program,even if its stressful as hell!

  6. Love the polka dot dress (surprise, eh?)! :)

    And the trousers too! Perfect high waist!
    Funnily enough my co-worker commented on me wearing trousers too, as she's so used to seeing my in dresses. :)

  7. Yes, for $8 you had to buy that top! I don't think you can even get socks at BR for $8! Ah, I saw that dress at F21 the other day but I didn't buy it, now I can live vicariously through you!

  8. Super pretty Lea! I've been wanting to pull this look off (pleated pants rolled up + belt + embellished shirt) for a while but I was afraid it wouldn't be petite-appropriate. You just proved me wrong. :) I do love this outfit because it's lovely and yet looks so comfy!

    And I think that f21 dress is a real catch. :) I have yet to find a dress there that looks good AND fits me great, so I think you're really fortunate :)

  9. ahhhh that dress is the cutest! It looks exactly like the Urban Outfitters one that I have but mine has white hearts instead of dots! Also love the entire outfit you are wearing. That top is so cute! I have one random top from Banana Republic too but I hardly ever even go in that store haha. Yours is way better though. ANDD you pull of those pants amazingly well!!

  10. The rolled pants look so cute on you! I generally bypass the pants at the thrift store...and everywhere else...because I have such a hard time finding pants that fit. I actually own no pants. But this post is making me think I really should try to find a cute pleated pair like yours. Your dress for the graduation is adorable too!

  11. You look pretty and chic!! :) Love that shirt!

  12. Eight bucks at Banana Republic?! You go, girl! I love how you styled this outfit. I've been searching for pants like this for a while also. So cute!

    ReplyDelete
  13. um i think those pants were literally made for you. i also steer clear of them for some reason, mostly because i feel most comfortable when i feel most girly. i used to be such a tomboy (about clothes, at least, not about anything else) when i was in middle school and i've been veering away from it ever since. wow, long-winded. the point is, i love these pants on you! fan-freaking-tastic :)

  14. These pants are so great on you! I own a pair of high-waist trousers but I feel like they're pretty unflattering on me, and don't wear them often.

    And I love that dress so much I might have to search all the F21's close to me so that I can wear it to my own graduation next month! :D

  15. Oooh, I love the pants with the top! I'm pleasantly surprised at how good they look rolled up (I tend to steer clear from rolling up pants, haha). I really like the belt as well.
    Banana Republic has surprisingly good deals at times! :)

    I also love the dress that you picked out - and the price is definitely a bonus. :)

  16. I'm so jealous that you have that dress! I've been eyeballing it on the website for a while now. And the answer to your question is NEVER! You never find 8 dollar cute shirts from Banana Republic! I love it! Those pants are amazing- I could nevvver pull those off and you are working it seamlessly!

  35. I rarely wear pants as well and when I do people notice it and everyone says how weird it is to see me in pants. I just feel more confortable in skirts.
    Still, you look really good in those pants. And I love the rolled up hem. In fact it´s something I am sporting today as well.
    Also, just wanted to share this with you, I thought it might interest you. You are studying architecture right? Because, I had to build a scale model of a house for a school project. I have never build one before and it has proven to be quite hard. But in the end it looked pretty good. I am thinking of posting some pics on the blog but I am not sure.
