April 11, 2019 – A Very Blustery Day (OOTD #492)

You’ll have to excuse me if this outfit looks familiar; I seem to have developed an affinity for wearing this scarf and this coat a lot recently.

Mid-April in South Bend can still get pretty chilly, but thankfully; it’s not so cold that I need to wear my full formal winter coat (or my even warmer parka). I have a nice selection of lightweight spring jackets; but this one seems to be my favorite. Maybe it’s because it looks so similar to my camel winter coat?

I’ve actually had this jacket for several years, but only recently have I begun to wear it more frequently. It was a Forever21 purchase that I got for style rather than function back in high school — but recently, I’ve been choosing it because it is so perfectly functional. It’s just the right weight for spring in South Bend — warm, but not too warm.

And this scarf is one of my favorites to pair with it. As you can tell from these pictures, it can get pretty windy — which, paired with the colder temperatures we often get in the mornings, makes a scarf necessary. I like this one because of its heaviness — it’s both warm and functional, and structural and stylish. It’s great for tossing over my shoulders or piling up around my neck.

Plus, it’s yellow and if you’ve been reading this blog lately, you’ll know that mustard yellow is one of my favorite colors to wear. I’m still on the lookout for some yellow gloves to pair with it, and then my transformation info a duckling will be complete.

That’s about it for today. Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the next one with more updates on my life at Notre Dame. Don’t forget to check me out on PinterestInstagramFacebookBloglovinTwitter, and Tumblr! For business inquiries, shoot me an email at lensembledujour@gmail.com.

May 21, 2018 – Fast Food Fashion (OOTD #288)

I have been wearing this Notre Dame hat a lot recently, and it makes me feel very trendy.

It’s not necessarily that a baseball hat elevates my fashion — in fact, it makes it even more casual. It’s casual in a cool way, though. Like, how often do you see a baseball hat paired with a dress?

If you use Pinterest or read other fashion blogs, probably plenty. But I can still pretend to be unique and special.

This pictures were done outside of my local Chick-Fil-A — how fun is that? Being totally honest, I hadn’t even intended to do pictures for this outfit, I didn’t think it was cool enough, but my dad and these pretty potted flowers outside of the restaurant convinced me otherwise.

Sometimes, a pretty background comes your way, and you’re not always dressed exactly as you’d like. It happens. The choice then, is whether you do photography even if there’s no outfit worth photographing — and today, I decided to do it. The background was just too cute. Plus, I liked my hat. It’s as simple as that.
