What I'm Wearing - 8/8/10

73 F, rainy

90 F, sunny

The weather can change so drastically in one day in Chicago!

I was sick yesterday, so today my mom stopped by and made chicken noodle soup for me. =] I went to the gym in the morning, and spent the rest of the day cleaning my apartment and doing homework. So I wore something that was comfortable, and wore my boots because it was wet outside. And not a lot of makeup, except some peach lipgloss. 

shirt: boutique (fashion tomato)
shorts: charlotte russe
boots: steve madden
bracelet: can't remember!
earrings: pink ice
hairband: urban outfitters

These shorts that I'm wearing barely fit me a few months ago. I had been put on some medication, and it made me gain 10 pounds! I was constantly hungry! So my doctor added another medication that has the side effect of reduced appetite, and that fixed the problem. But now I was 10 pounds heavier, and my clothes barely fit. =[

So I've been working out a lot, and after 2 1/2 months I'm back to where I was before. I just need to tone up a little bit now. But my shorts are loose and comfy again. 

Also, another thing arrived in the mail!

a plaid vintage jumper that I purchased off etsy!
(Please excuse my lack of make-up. I had just gotten out of the shower, and wanted to try it on as soon as possible.)

It's from the 80's, I believe, and I think it's adorable. I'm so obsessed with plaid. I'm excited about this because so far I don't have very many vintage pieces in my wardrobe, and I'm trying to fix that. So... yay!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and a good start to their week!

xoxo, alexandra
