Who Says Pants Aren’t Made For Summer?

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!

Beach-side Drinks

Top (similar) : Forever 21   |  Shorts : Charlotte Russe  |  Shoes  : Poshmark  |

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

Really wish I could be spending this Memorial Day weekend enjoying drinks out over the open ocean but these memories will have to suffice! I could think of no better outfit for exploring the resort than an off the shoulder cropped top and some denim shorts. Both pieces allow you to wear your swimsuit inconspicuously underneath without taking away from the outfit. I love this top and it has been in my wardrobe arsenal for years. It was originally from Victoria’s Secret and it has held up through the years beautifully. I’ll link a similar one in this post.

Warm Weather On The Horizon

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

Are you guys sick of fashion posts yet? I hope not! These are some of my favorite posts to write. With summer right around the corner, I’ve started to break out all my cute summer pieces. These shorts were in fact a new purchase that I have in mind for my honeymoon but wanted to be sure to test them out before we left. They are SUPER comfortable and I’m loving them. Another thing I’m loving, off the shoulder pieces. I’ve noticed that I’ve slowly been transitioning my whole wardrobe to off the shoulder haha! I may need to slow it down a bit but a cute off the shoulder piece is hard to resist!

Nights In Navy

| Dress : Z Supply   |  Boots : Charlotte Russe  |

|  Jacket  : Charlotte Russe  |

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

Spring in the Midwest is always a gamble on weather. I always find it the hardest weather transition of the year for some reason. For nights out on the town, it’s always difficult to gauge what amount of layers will suffice. That’s why I love this combination. The over the knee boots let me wear a dress without exposing too much leg (as freshly shaved legs are no friend to cold weather). This dress is actually sleeveless so I can wear my lightweight leather jacket without sweating to death. This dress is amazing. The material is so comfortable and I love the draped neckline. It’s no secret that I’ve been obsessing over navy lately so this dress is a total package for me (sadly it’s no longer available in this color). The color is amazing, soft fabric, amazing shape (tight enough to show curves but loose enough to not show any unwanted curves). AMAZING!

Wedding Season Has Sprung

| Dress : JC Penny   |  Shoes : Charlotte Russe  |  Necklace  : Target  |

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

The first of many wedding this year! It’s definitely going to be a crazy busy summer with all the many weddings we have on our plate. But, my favorite part, it also means some great outfit posts are coming your way! This outfit seemed perfect for this early spring afternoon and I’m definitely glad I went light on the layers. (Always fun dressing for the chaotic Midwest weather!) It was great to see that our nasty Midwest weather warmed up for the occasion! It was a beautiful day and we are so happy for our good friends to begin their lives together. It was a gorgeous setting and a very fun day!

Sadly, the pieces in this outfit have been in my wardrobe for quite some time but I’ve found some very close dupes. I actually prefer the new necklace I found for this outfit haha! Be sure to check it out. 🙂

Cocktails Taste Better On Rooftops

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

We took a work ladies night out to celebrate a great first quarter and did it in the only acceptable fashion: rooftop cocktails. I’ve thoroughly missed drinking outdoors. I’m so over this long winter and ready for some sunshine! However, high powered heaters make rooftops a little more tolerable! It was a wonderful time getting to get to know all my coworkers more outside of the office and the view was fantastic. This lovely red cocktail is called “The Traveler” and OMG it was so good! Their food was just as amazing and such a relaxed atmosphere. I would’ve never considered going out to a hotel’s restaurant/bar but I’m so glad we tried it. Great start to the weekend!

Comment below and tell me what your favorite place to enjoy a good cocktail is!

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

Last week, my Valentine’s night consisted of hubby making me dinner and just spending some quality time together. (Which we do every night, but tonight I got flowers as well!) Since we were doing just a simple night in, we decided the weekend after Valentine ’s Day we wanted to go out and have a fun adventure together to a place we’d never been before. We went to a local bakery and ordered some really yummy looking treats! Both of these fun date ideas can be found in my Valentine’s Day On A Budget post.

For our casual little day adventure, I decided to wear this adorable pink bodysuit and paired it with this lacey bralette number. I used these cute white heels to dress up the simple light wash jean and topped the whole look off with my favorite white trench coat. I love this coat and it is SO much warmer than it looks! (Also, these heels were my wedding heels. I told you I wanted shoes that I could utilize after the big day!)

Comment below what your Valentine’s Day consisted of. I’d love to hear from you!
