outfit from the weekend: personal style.

Wanna know a secret? 


It might go a bit deeper than that. 
I love creating my personal style. 
No, this is not a style blog.. nor will it become one.. tried & failed!

But, I think this all started with a single clothing disaster, I wore a white-mini-tierd skirt over a pair of jeans. (gasp!) I'm shaking my head at the mental image that creates...
 I wish I had a picture of it. 
But I remember the thought process I was going through then (in highschool) to develop a style that is my own. Since then I like to think I've reformed to a more classic-American style. Thank the sweet lord!
I would hate to think how I could remix that white-tierd skirt into my current wardrobe..  

I still love to throw in a subtle uniqueness that is mine. 
Probably at first I wanted to stand out apart from my peers. 
But now, its more of presenting myself in a way that I'm happy with. 

So, this past weekend I had tickets for me and my Japanese Mama's to go to dinner theater. 
It was set up as a murder mystery and it was fabulous! 

Here is what I wore: 

The black skirt.. is actually a DRESS! 
I found a black 3/4 sleeve dress at H&M for under $10 and it has been such a work horse in my wardrobe this past season. I see myself transitioning it to spring and trying to brighten it up! 
The shirt (H&M, $20) is a navy and white polka dot button down. I belted it with a free studded belt that came attached to a shirt I got on SUPER SALE at the BX for $4 (and shirt is wicked cute too!). I accessorized simply with a necklace given to me by my grandmother that I wear like its attached to my skin. ok I'm a weirdo..  and a pair of black heels too boring to show. 

This is one of my better outfits from the weekend. 
But it didn't have much competition against my sweats and pajamas. 

Do you have any specific accessories that you must include with most of your outfits? 


  1. You look amazing :) Love the outfit!

  2. Woke up in the middle of the night to see a breaking news report about the earthquake on my phone. Then, I dreamed I was going to Japan and was going to meet you. All of this to say, I hope you and everyone you love are safe over there! Update everyone soon, if you can, to let us know!

  3. I have thought about you lots over the past few days. I hope everything is okay and that you and your husband and friends are safe! Update as soon as you can!
