A Chilly Spring Day OOTD

Happy Thursday, friends! For some of my fellow college students, happy weekend! It’s pretty chilly out (but no snow!) so I decided on some jean overalls and this long-ish sleeved shirt. Definitely a more casual outfit, but I still really liked it! I enjoy doing these posts because I come up with outfits that I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise. Like this one!

Shirt: TJ Max

Overalls: American Apparel

Shoes: Converse

Have a great rest of your day! Thank you so much for reading!

“Today is the First Day of Spring, but it was Snowing When These Photos Were Being Taken” OOTD

Hi, friends! Happy first day of spring!! I’ve been on a roll with these OOTD posts this week, and it makes me so happy! They’re so fun to do and Bobby is such a good photographer! However, today was a little difficult when taking photos because it was so yucky outside. First it was raining, then in started snowing. Happy spring, right? That’s just Michigan for ya! I don’t call my blog Midwest Mattie Mae for nothin’.

Bobby and I went to Target today (my favorite place) and this dress really stood out. Bobby said, “You have to have this!” So he bought it for me — what a nice boy, hmm? ❤ I absolutely love the mustard yellow contrasting with the dreariness of the weather. It made me feel like it was springtime, even if it was snowing something fierce.

“Tomorrow is the First Day of Spring” OOTD

Hello, friends! Happy Tuesday! I hope that your week is going well so far. Mine has been busy, as per usual. But that’s okay! I don’t mind being busy so much. That’s what the weekends are for, ha!

I thought I’d do another OOTD today, although, for transparency’s sake, I  will say that I did not wear this outfit to class today. I ordered this dress in January, and I finally got it today. It was a big to-do. My apartment is kind of like the Bermuda Triangle in terms of receiving the packages I order. UPS has only ever been able to find it once. All of the other times, it goes to the UPS store in town, or it gets sent back to the company. Both of these things happened with this dress. They sent it back to the UPS store and then back to the Roolee headquarters. I emailed them asking if they could send it to my mom’s address, so they did that and it got there just fine. BUT! My mom forgot to tell me it arrived in February so I didn’t get it until now, ha! But now is the perfect time for this dress!

A Journey into Self-Love · OOTD

A Casual OOTD Paired with Thoughts on Self-Love.

Hello, friends! Happy Monday! I hope that your week is going well so far and that you had a great weekend! My Monday is off to a great start, I’ve had my morning coffee, I went to Qdoba for lunch with Bobby, and I am wearing a super cute outfit!

It’s only early afternoon, but I’ve been feeling so confident all day. It’s amazing what a cute outfit can do for you! So, I wanted to make an OOTD blog featuring it. And as usual, I had Bobby take the pictures. I stared at the photos while editing, not completely hating them, but not 100% loving them either. I stared at my legs. Bullying myself and asking myself, “Why have you been feeling confident? You look short and chubby in those pants.” But I’ve decided to post these pictures anyway. I like this outfit, I think it’s cute. I feel cute in it, too. Why should I let a couple of pictures change my confidence? Am I exactly where I’d like to be, weight-wise? No. I could definitely be doing more to live a healthy lifestyle. But I am where I am. There’s no reason that I shouldn’t still love myself. I’m worthy of my own love. So, without further ado, here is my OOTD post!

Thank you so much for reading, friends! I hope that this post inspired you, be it fashion, or be it body-positivity. I also hope that your week is going great so far, and I want to remind  you that self-love is SO important, and that each and every person in the world deserves to love themselves. That includes YOU!

Thank you so much for reading!

OOTD: Dreaming of Spring

Hi, friends! Hope y’all had a great weekend! I’ve been thinking, my blog’s motto talks about food, fashion, and frivolity, but I don’t think I’m doing such a great job at featuring all three. I seem to be doing alright in the frivolity section, but lacking in the food and the fashion. So, I thought I’d try to remedy that. I figured I would  start doing some outfit of the day posts. I always love seeing the outfits people put together on their blogs and on Instagram, so I thought I would give it a go!

And boy, let me tell you. It is SO hard to find motivation in the winter to dress somewhat cute and not just in your cozy clothes 24/7. I recently went to the Old Navy outlet store and was able to score three dresses that were on super sale. I’m pretty sure the one I have on in this post ended up being $3! I love this dress because the flowers help me think of spring. Not only that, but this dress is so versatile. I just threw on some tights, jean jacket, and a cute pair of boots. And then in the summer, I could wear the dress with some cute white sandals and be ready to go! I also love it because it’s the perfect length. As someone who is fairly short, I have the worst time finding dresses that are the right length. I have a pretty long torso paired with some really short legs, so dresses end up being way too long or way too short. This dress is perfect because it goes right to the knees, which makes it modest enough for my personal style.

Now, here are some pictures!
