Miami weather has been so…dreary.

Post image for Miami weather has been so…dreary.

I’d love to tell you that I have a brilliant new outfit post. But I don’t. The weather has been so blah! AND, on the days when I have something planned. It was pouring yesterday, and I was wearing my cute, newly DIY-ed dress, and today it’s bright and sunny and I’m wearing one of my boyfriend’s t-shirts and some gym shorts.

While in my cute dress yesterday, I decided to spend time with my roommate. We did have a photoshoot scheduled, but the rain obviously dampened those plans. We didn’t quite have an agenda and ended up at Goodwill, where I’ve been meaning to get a lace t-shirt from. I quickly found one in navy.

Then we ended up heading to Dunkin’ Donuts for a quick bite to eat. I got a vanilla frosted doughnut, which is one of my signatures. They always seem to be sold out of Vanilla Kreme-filled, which I have loved forever. What a shame.

Anyway, we were wondering what to do next, and headed to Ulta. Maricela bought cute flamingo pink lipstick (She can rock it! I feel like it’d make me look like a prostitute.) I wanted to restart my nail polish collection since I recently trashed 95% of it. I want to have pretty much purely OPI since the color is so vibrant and the physical polish is rich, so I only purchased their Start to Finish base coat/top coat/nail strengthener and their Drip Dry nail drops. When I went to purchase, they gave me a sample of some of their Fall colors, Black Cherry Chutney, Brisbane Bronze, and Bogota Blackberry.

They aren’t exactly colors I’d normally wear (they have a Shrek line, which is oddly more what I’m into), but hey! They were free. They’re actually worth $9.95, which is pretty cool. I guess when you purchase a certain amount in OPI, they give you free mini bottles.

That’s all I have for you for today. The new Blog of the Moment Spotlight has been selected, so check your inboxes to see if you’re selected. I might make a post later, so see you :)
