I don’t know about well-dressed, but I’m definitely stressed! Had a nasty bout of allergies over the past weekend that I’m still getting over. I’m not one to call in sick at the slightest bit of discomfort although I was uncomfortable for sure. I really hate missing work. I hate missing out on pay, but that just meant my recovery took longer than it had to. Still coughing and feeling tired all the time. :( On the bright side, I’m working from home ’til next week! I hope this goes away soon.


Trench coat from Singapore (similar), Aeropostale jeans (similar), Refresh booties, H&M knit hat

Check out that gross slush. It’s finally up to the 40s, and I’M SO HAPPY. I wore this outfit last Sunday for a late lunch and grocery trip. I’ve had the trench coat for years. I remember it being pretty pricey, and I feel bad that I don’t wear it enough. It’s on the cutesy side which I’m quickly getting over as I get older more mature. lol Perhaps I should sell it?


Eyeliner: L’Oreal Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Carbon Black
Lipstick: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Really Red

Quick review on the eyeliner: it’s okay. It glides on smoothly in the beginning when it’s nice and sharp, but it doesn’t sharpen very well so application can get awkward over time. If you want something more precise, I say stick with liquid liners.

And I love this hair length for the flippy do’s. <3 I'm planning on coloring my hair soon, so I better enjoy my dark hair while it's still here! I might go for red this time. What do you think?



    Keep it! Tho I totally get getting rid of cutesy stuff haha, I’m cleaning out my closet soon (for the 3rd time in less than a year) because it’s not as GROWN-UP as I want it to be.

    1. Haha idk, snow is terrible! I hate it. XD

      Yeah, I want a more grown-up wardrobe too! Planning on cleaning out my closet this spring. I don’t know why I held on to things I don’t even wear. T_T

  2. If you’re stressed you do not look it AT ALL so you’re definitely well dressed ;) I love the trench coat! It is so freaking cute. I was shopping for coats not that long ago and I wish I could’ve found something as cute as yours. DON’T SELL IT! You look wonderful in it! Perhaps whenever you’re feelin’ cute, you would bring it out to wear again.

    1. Yeah, I had a hard time looking for a similar trench coat to link! Most I found were very expensive. The Etsy link was the most reasonable I found. :’D

      Did you get to buy a coat? I’d love to see it!

  3. Dressing ‘well’ definitely helps with easing some stress by giving you a confidence boost. That’s how I feel with wearing dresses at times. Hopefully by now, you’re feeling a lot better. I felt the same way about leather jackets, but I’m wearing them all of a sudden *_*. I like the darker hair colors on you :). Are you planning to go cherry red or dark red?

  4. You look so cute in that outfit. Yeah, unfortunately, when I am stressed I don’t well dress. :(( Actually my clothing style is weird. Sometimes I wear hats like berets or my fez.

    Or any random Sailor Moon accessory. I am weird lol
