Who Says Pants Aren’t Made For Summer?

Top (similar) : Forever 21   |  Bottoms : Charlotte Russe  |  Shoes  : Kohls  |

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

I’ve been so excited to share this outfit post with you guys. I’m absolutely obsessed with these pants! I saw them on the Charlotte Russe website and ordered them immediately. I’m so glad that I did because they work with so many occasions and tops. I’ll definitely getting good use of these this summer! On this day, my husband and I were still in beautiful Jamaica. I thought this outfit would be perfect for a romantic dinner on the beach. It was absolutely the perfect outfit to transition into the night. The extra fabric makes it perfect to drape over your legs if you get cold but aren’t stuffy. I highly recommending checking these out! I’m hoping to see this style more and more in stores so I can get my hands on some more!

Travel Wear Is The Best Wear

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

Yes, traveling is the worst. However, travel clothes are some of the comfiest pieces in your wardrobe. Luckily for you, I’m here to help you pair some of the comfiest pieces together while still looking put together.

This cardigan is here to save the day. This thing is seriously the comfiest and most flattering piece. I need this in every color!

I know that jeans don’t really sound like the comfiest travel wear but these jeans are made of a jegging material. That makes them extremely comfortable and a more dressed up look than the usual leggings. I don’t know about you; but, for me, I’m all for the comfiest travel clothes but hate feeling like a bum whenever I show up to my destination. I think these jeans really help to dress up comfy looks.

If you’re driving instead of flying, I highly recommend a pair of comfy heels. The beauty of road trips is that you can slip your shoes off easy enough. If you are flying, I definitely would stay away from heels (unless you’re a well trained professional).

Comfy Christmas Lounge-wear OOTD


Sweatshirt : Victoria’s Secret (similar)  |  Leggings : Charlotte Russe  |  Shoes  : Charlotte Russe  |

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Yes, you read that right. Finally the last Christmas party of 2016 has come and past! This last party was just a smaller gathering between family members so luckily I could get away with not dressing up too much. These over the knee boots are a brand new purchase for me and I’m obsessed with them. I decided to pair them with my olive leggings (incorporating Christmas the most I can in January) and an oversized sweatshirt from Victoria’s Secret. This made for an extremely cozy party outfit! It seems like this trend of over the knee boots and oversized jackets/sweatshirts is everywhere nowadays. I’m loving it! If it wasn’t the dead of winter and I had a longer sweatshirt I definitely could’ve gotten away without the leggings. Be on the lookout for more outfit posts coming soon with these boots!

Girl’s Shopping Trip OOTD


Sweater : Charlotte Russe  |  Leggings : Charlotte Russe  |  Shoes  : Charlotte Russe  |

|  Hat : Nordstrom Rack  |

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

A much needed girls shopping trip was needed after this busy holiday season. I finally broke out some of that holiday cash/gift cards that accumulated over the holiday and put it to good use. (No worries, a haul is coming soon.) Knowing full well that I wanted to get some clothes, I made sure my outfit was easy to slip on and off to try clothes on. My go-to winter wardrobe consists of booties, leggings, and sweaters. Naturally, I had to break out this cute little sweater I recently purchased. I’m partial to the all black look, so I finished it off with black in various materials. I’m in love with these leather leggings. I really need to pick up some more! And these little black booties are a must for shopping. I love the height of the heel because it gives you the cute look of heels but at a comfortable height (which is so crucial when traipsing through the mall all day).

Off-The-Shoulder Sweater OOTD

Sweater : Charlotte Russe  |  Jeans : Charlotte Russe  |  Shoes  : Bonanza (similar) |

With this winter weather subsiding for a bit, I decided to break out this new sweater I recently hauled. I love the versatility of it! It can be worn off-the-shoulder (like I’m wearing it) or as a cowl neck sweater. It’s like having two sweaters for the price of one! I paired it with these new jeans from my last clothing haul as well and these over the knee boots. If you know me, you know I don’t venture too far without these beautiful little boots in the winter!

We decided to try and be cute with bringing the little one out for some pictures. She did not cooperate as well this time. Too much going on outside! Haha!

Which way would you prefer to wear this sweater, cowl neck or off-the-shoulder? Comment below!

Clothing Haul

Clothing Haul.JPG

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Online shopping to way too dangerous. It makes it way too easy to get just what I’m looking for (and often times more than what is in the shops here locally). I just picked up a few pieces from Charlotte Russe and Target that I’m really enjoying so far! Let’s start off easy with Target.


Moon Tee

This brand is beginning to be my favorite new thing. This is the same brand as my Nam-a-stay In Bed shirt and they are so incredibly soft and comfortable. I saw this super cute geometric lunar shirt and had to get it! (If it ain’t black, put it back on the rack. Am I right?)


Cut Out Sweater

Speaking of “If it ain’t black, put it back on the rack”. This sweater is so cozy and I love the shoulder cut outs. They make the perfect accent to this piece and give it more life than a plain black sweater.


Olive Football Tee

Switching over to Charlotte Russe, I picked up this tee in hopes that the material is similar to the moon shirt I picked up from Target! And it does feel the same! So comfy and very flattering. Perfect cozy shirt and can easily be dressed up.


Black Ankle Booties

I have been in desperate need of some black booties! I have been wearing my camel booties constantly this fall and black makes everything look better.


White Off The Shoulder Top

I picked this adorable top up to wear to any upcoming bridal events or the day after the wedding brunch with everyone. I thought this top would be adorable with blush high waisted jeans. I’m so excited to wear this!


Plain Baseball Hat

This hat is much more gray than it appears online. You also can’t really see the fabric well online, the satin must not photograph well. Other than that, I really enjoy this hat. It’s great for third day hair that is just not cooperating and you still want to have that comfy chic look.

I’m excited to break these out and start wearing them. Look forward to some OOTD posts in the near future! If there are any specific pieces you want to see, let me know down below in the comments!


Lookbook / Outfit Ideas featuring Warby Parker x Leith Clark

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

I’m so excited to talk to you guys today about this wonderful brand, Warby Parker, as they announce their newest line. For those who don’t know, Warby Parker is an eyeglass and sunglasses designer. There are a million designers out there but there is something special about Warby Parker that I can’t get enough of! They have amazing selections, great quality, and a great cause to back up their brand.

(They have a great and unique selection that you really can’t find anywhere around here. Since they do not have a location in little ole Iowa, it’s a great thing that they offer to ship 5 pairs of glasses to you for free to try on!)

Warby Parker teamed up with Leith Clark for an amazing new line that I am so excited to tell you about. The new collection just went live today! Use this link here to peruse their latest and greatest styles! One of my favorite parts about this company is the hospitality and utilitarian values they hold. For this collection, they are donating to an organization called Girl Up. Girl Up is a campaign run by the United Nations and encourages girls to raise awareness and funds for UN programs. It’s a really great program so I’ll leave a link here for those who would like to learn more about it. Every pair of frames that Warby Parker sells, is a pair they will distribute to those in need. Such a great cause with such incredible style. Who could say no?

Now on to the fashion! My three top favs are what I wanted to talk about today: Fleta, Valda, and Zelda. I don’t know about you but I think I love the names as much as I love the style! I wanted to show you how these styles can be meshed with so many different kinds of styles. A lot of the time, when people see such an extravagant style, such as Fleta, that can steer them away. I wanted to show you how you can pair these shades with everyday outfits and your own personal style.
