     One thing that many of my favorite fashion bloggers do is to pair things together that might be of contrasting patterns, colors, or styles... but they make it work. This is my first OOTD on my blog where I've been inspired to try that! This whole outfit began after my wonderful Big sister in ADPi, Jess, gave me this adorable Charlotte Russe necklace for Valentines day. I was going to originally pair it with a plain white shirt, but I decided to get creative and do some "closet shopping." I have had both these jeans and the tank that I'm wearing for a couple of years, and I decided it's time that they made their debut on the blog!

     I buy almost all of my jeans from American Eagle. They have a ton of different styles, fits and washes, and they're very reasonably priced! Y'all know that there are some items that I splurge on, but jeans are not one of those items. ;-) Anyways, these jeans technically aren't part of the "boyfriend" line, I think technically they're just classified as "skinny." (My favorite AEO jeans are the super skinny or jegging fit). I had accidently purchased these a size too big, so they fit more like a boyfriend jean. 

    On a different note, I'm in shock that the temperature hit about 75 degrees yesterday in Charlotte!! The warm weather was the other inspiration for this outfit. At this time last week, the whole city was still blanketed in a lot of snow, so I am still in awe of how quickly the weather changes here. Please cross your fingers with me that it will stay this warm next week! On Wednesday my friend Shara is flying in from Maine to spend a few days with me, and I'm hoping the weather will give her some nice Carolina sunshine!

     Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
