Embroidered Trim



I think I buy a new pair of olive green jeans. Every day. I'm a nutter. Truth is. The first few pairs either got stained. Or ripped. Or are way too tight (hence the rip). Cause I've gained....well.....let's just call them the "freshman fifteen". Or post college fifteen. Or quarter life crisis fifteen. Yep, that sounds about right. I guess that's what happens when you bake...and just about inhale everything you baked. Down to the the very last cupcake or cookie. All me. Caught red-handed. I try to cover up my tracks. But...I always....always...have some sort of cookie or brownie crumb or nutella traces at the corners of my lip lol!! And I'm not sure why I told you all of this. But I hope it makes for a good story;)! Have a great week!

Top - Forever 21 (Exact one here or similar style here) ; Jeans - Hudson (Similar one here, here, or here) ; Shoes - Zara (Sold Out) (Different styles here or here) ; Bag - Zara (Old) (Similar one here)

  17. I hear ya with the baking! I try not to bake because I am the one who ends up eating everything myself. Mmmm just thinking about fresh baked oatmeal cookies out of the oven is making me want to go and make them right now.

  37. I love olive green. It's such a pretty color, especially for our olive skin tones! I know what you mean about the baking and eating... I may or may not be guilty of devouring everything I bake. Whoopsy whoops. :)

  38. Olive green is such a tough color for me. I never know what to pair with it (though I should just stop by here for inspiration). Those cupcakes looked so good, I don't think I would share them with anyone either :) Thank goodness I can't bake for the life of me.
