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

Writing this post is hitting me right in the feels. I’m missing that gorgeous Jamaican weather and the beautiful breeze! My skin is definitely missing the sun as well. I feel like we have been under one big giant cloud here in the Midwest for the past two weeks…ugh. But, on a higher note, this was one of my favorite outfits of the trip and I’m very excited to show it to you today!

This top was my first new purchase for the trip and I fell in absolute love with it as soon as I saw it. It just screams the need to be on a boat in the tropics to me. I paired it with simple white shorts and these adorable Michael Kors sandals. (I won’t even try and be boujee with that, they came from TJ Maxx. No shame!) It was the perfect outfit to start off our vacation and so comfortable too. It was nice to have something flowy after a long day of cramped flights the day before. Now that we are back in the states, I’ll definitely be breaking out this little number more often!

Working Girl Outfits x Mallory Mileham

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

I’m so happy to announce my first collab ever on my blog today! I’ve teamed up with Mallory Mileham to show you a few working girl outfits that are perfect to transition us into the warmer seasons. I’m showing you three looks here today and Mallory will show you her three outfits over on her YouTube channel. Be sure to click here and watch her video afterwards. That girl has some serious style! While you’re on her channel, make sure to check out some of her other fashion, fitness, and lifestyle videos as well!

Before we get into the outfits, I just wanted to announce that today will kick off a week-long series I’m going to be doing all centered around the working girl! With graduation season upon us, I thought it would be the perfect time to offer some tips and tricks to landing your dream job and everything along the way. All you working girls be sure to subscribe to be updated with the next installment!

|  Skirt  : New York & Company  |  Tank Top  : Nordstrom Rack  |

| Heels  : Qupid  |

I wanted to start off with your typical corporate outfit except with a giant pop of color. When working in a corporate environment, I found myself struggling to incorporate my own personality to my fashion. Fashion is a large part of my life and personal expression so I like to add twists on the usual formal corporate attire!

|  Joggers  : Walmart  |  Tank Top  : Forever 21  |  Blazer  : Charlotte Russe  |

|  Heels  : Forever 21  |  Necklace  : Old Navy  |  Purse  : Target  |

| Sunglasses  : Ray-Ban  |

I love this outfit because it can really be used in a corporate environment to break up the monotony of the basic black trouser. One of the troubles I found when working in a corporate setting, was the boring wardrobe that goes along with the job. I really had to stretch my imagination as to other outfits that could work within the corporate dress code. I love these pants for their fun pattern and shape. Definitely one of my more favorite pieces in my wardrobe!

|  Blouse  : Forever 21  |  Jeans  : Charlotte Russe  |  Heels  : Macy’s  |

|  Necklace  : Target  |

This is a great options for you girls who don’t quite work in a corporate attire. This outfit can be super casual or dressed up a bit with a nice pair of heels and formal jacket, which is what I did here. I love the simplicity of this look. It really doesn’t take any effort to put together and yet looks like you really put the time into it.

Leave me a comment below and tell me which outfit was your favorite. Also, be sure to jump on over to Mallory’s channel and tell her which of her outfits you love best!

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!

Leave me a comment below and tell me what your favorite off the shoulder piece is in your wardrobe!

Comfy Christmas Lounge-wear OOTD

img_9603img_9602img_9604img_9605

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!

Leave a comment below and let me know what your go-to comfy outfit is!

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.

1.JPG

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?)

2

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.

3

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.

4

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.

5

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!

6

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!
