OOTD: M-F Basics

I’m basic AF. Just kidding, but I guess you should be the judge of that. Lately I’ve found a pattern in my every day clothes. I realized that I have the same shirt in 5 different colors, which makes dressing up each week pretty easy. I could sleep in with this routine I have going on!


Jeans are becoming a staple in my everyday outfit, when it used to be leggings. I still throw in the leggings, but my go to are a pair of skinny jeans. I literally only had two pairs of “good” jeans aka not ripped at the thighs, but all of a sudden I ended up with at least four more pairs over the last few months. So now, I’ll go through my jeans first, then my basic leggings (black, navy, wine, purple), then do laundry and repeat. There are some tops that I think look way better with leggings and obviously there are tops I have that don’t go with leggings and are a little too short to cover my behind. It’s all about mixing and matching!

Today’s post is dedicated to my recent finds and going back to basics. As mentioned earlier, I have five colors of the same crew shirt. This find comes from Target and is by Mossimo Supply Co.

Normally, I don’t like to buy plain shirts, but for some reason the striped shirt called out to me first. It was on sale for $5 and then I got the white one (twice) and each time I went to Target, I found myself buying the rest. Each time they were on sale for $5. They also have other styles like v-necks, but I really like the crew shirt with the pocket. It’s soft and comfortable. I can tuck it in or I can let it fly and it’s a nice fit either way. The only thing I dislike is how it easily wrinkles, but thats what irons are for, right?

I believe the regular price is $8.50, but they go on sale like every other week. A few of the colors are currently on clearance at the Target I frequently go to, and some new colors have emerged. $5 is such a good steal!


Then comes the jeans. I always buy Forever 21’s plus size skinny short jeans. They last pretty long and are affordable. They are usually about $12. The dark wash doesn’t usually stain and that’s a plus.

At Target, however, I’ve bought jeans in the past year under $10. They’ve all been on clearance. Denim doesn’t change much, but they do have to make room for the new washes and distressed jeans. Mossimo has been making me happy lately, but I’ve also gotten the Levi Strauss Modern Skinny pair of jeans as well. And of course jeggings from the Walmart are thrown in as well. They’re a little on the tight side, but they are under $10 as well. And that’s what matters to me!


As you can tell, Forever 21 is a fave of mine, but Target also provides with really cute clothes that fit me.

Does anyone else really love the crew shirts at Target that are out now?

My Morning Routine: Health and Beauty Essentials

I like to think of myself as a morning person, at least moreso than a daytime person. Sure, I dread waking up early to get ready for work, but I’d rather get up early for work than wake up later and starting later. I always found that mid shifts wasted your day. But if I’m being honest, my days are usually wasted anyways. It’s my choice & I know it’s not a good one.

Anyways, when my alarm goes off at 5:40 a.m. I get up to snooze it and wait 10 more minutes for my 2nd alarm to go off. By the 2nd alarm, I’m not fully awake, but I’m on the way there. After wasting a few minutes staring at my phone, I start my morning routine wish a shower to wake up.


This is where I’ll start wish washing my face. For the past few years, I’ve been using the St. Ives line of cleasing washes. Sometimes I interchange the facial washes, but I use the Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub the most. Not only do I love drinking green tea, but it’s a great scrub on my face. It smells just like green tea, but it’s scent isn’t strong at all. The exfoliating beads aren’t as strong/prominent in this scrub compared to others so I don’t feel like my face is being scratched off. I don’t have many black heads so it must be working. Also, it’s supposed to calm redness, which I believe is working as well!

After washing my face, I continue on with the typical shower stuff: Shampoo, conditioner, & body soap.

However, to cut my morning routine short, I end my shower with In-Shower Body Lotion by Nivea. I believe there are 3 or 4 different in-shower lotions, but I’ve only tried the hydrating lotion with sea minerals. The scent of this lotion is my favorite. Anyways, what exactly is in-shower lotion? It’s lotion you put in the shower, duh! It helps keep you moisturized even after you rinse it off and dry off after your shower. I don’t have to worry about lotioning up again after I get out of the shower. My skin stays soft all day and I’m definitely glad I found out about this product!

After showering and brushing my teeth, I continue my routine with moisturizing my face. My face gets dry really easily so I make sure to moisturize every morning with Ponds Dry Skin Cream. I’ve been using this for years and it’s always been good to me. Some moisturizers make my face feel and look super oily, but this one doesn’t. To me the scent isn’t strong either & that’s always a plus when you put something on your fave that is forced to smell it. Also, it’s reasonably priced & you can find it in travel size in case you are on the go!

These three products are my go to when cleansing and moisturizing my body. They make me feel fresh, clean, and ready for a new day. What are your go to products to keep your skin moisturized?
