Summer Outfit + BIG Announcements

Weekly Announcements: Hey all!  It's been a slow posting week, but a lot has been going on behind the scenes so I want to take a quick second to share what's up before launching into this outfit post!
  • In case you missed it, I changed the name of my URL (which is probably obvious if you're reading this) and the explanation for it all is HERE!
  • I got to be a featured blogger for ModCloth!  ModCloth's IRL tour is coming to Denver in August (...I may or may not get to be apart of that...) and they asked me to write about the Mile High City for their blog!  I was totally honored and excited, so check out my post HERE!  Since they asked for a bunch of photos and could only use so many, I have a bunch that didn't make the cut so I may add them to a future post here sooner than later!
Picnic with local beers as Denver is known for microbreweries!
  • It's been a super exciting week for interviews, as my comedy partner Shannon and I got interviewed from one of my closest blogger friends Lindsey from Have Clothes Will Travel.  You may remember that I did her Featured Fashionista Q&A LAST July  for this blog.  Every month she interviews style bloggers and occasionally travel etc bloggers, but I think we're the first comedians or other type of entertainer to be featured on her blog so I feel super honored!  If you've been looking at me like a crackhead while I post videos and photos not understanding the context, this is a GREAT catch-up as it explains our story and what we're ultimately trying to do (Lindsey, amongst other things, is a mega awesome question asker!)  CLICK HERE to read!  PS-Just Shair is going to the "Olympics" next week and we tease that.  Check out our official uniforms that we're be donning in physically intense sports of Pop Tart toasting, power walking, and foam sword fighting:
We're going to the Olympics!!!  No, not in Rio but in Denver...

All About the Outfit:  This outfit is a newer one from Retrolicious via Unique Vintage.  Retrolicious has really been on fire this year with fun prints, and this Vintage Tiki dress is no exception!  This safari print is fun because it's oh-so subtle and almost looks floral, but really there's parrots and jungle leaves and more all over it.  I also have the pink safari/jungle print that they put out this year and recently wore it in a YouTube video (I'm planning to wear it on the blog soon).

Style Details: Initially I was going to go for all navy for the accessories, but ultimately decided to wait until fall for that look.  I kept the navy belt, but decided to go for mint accessorizing to keep things light and summery.  And the red glasses were to add a pop as there is red in the dress.

Sunglass: Beach store find
Brooch- Erstwilder
Bag- Kate Spade
Shoes- Guess

I usually do outfit posts after songs and while I'm still intending to keep that up I think on my end of week announcements they make already longer posts longer.  I'm still experimenting with what works as I branch into other mediums, being an online personality and comedian, and more while incorporating it with this blog without alienating my already established formats and audience!  Bear with me while I perfect my announcement with outfit posts!

Thanks so much for all of the amazing feedback too earlier this week when I switched my url!  I'm very excited and feel as though a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.  I'm also excited because I've been updating camera equipment and such, so I'm hoping more dynamic photos are coming down the pipe as well!  I anticipate being back to blogging as usual Wednesday the 3rd or Thursday the 4th (I'm in a wedding this weekend AND doing a bunch of Just Shair stuff, so I may need to recharge!!)  Regardless, I'm excited to be back!  Have an awesome weekend!

Hey, all!  I'm a big baseball fan and my mom is from Chicago so I grew up hearing about the Cubs history and am pretty amped to be here at game 7!  Anyone else into this year's World Series or have a fan favorite they're rooting for?
Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick post showing my fandom!  I decided to be silly and wear my Cubs tee with a skirt (same as my zombie skirt) from Retrolicious via ModCloth with bears all over them...get it?  Hehe. I'm not into totally normal sports attire, as I exhibited HERE. Stay safe tonight if you're out watching tonight!

Win $100 Towards a JORD Watch!

What time is it?  THE TIME IS NOW.  Okay, now that I've gotten my favorite line from a Kids in the Hall sketch that I saw when I was 12 out of my system let's get to business!  The time is actually time to register for a watch giveaway and/or get a coupon, all thanks to JORD Watches. (Pronounced "Youd" as in like toad or road.  OR "Yoda" with no "a.")

Check out THIS LINK to try to get $100  towards a JORD watch and free sizing AND shipping.  This will go on for two weeks, so hop to it!  You can also get a $25 coupon with the code "blairosaurus" over the next two weeks too.  And if there's any menfolk out there reading, JORD has both women and mens watches.  Yay!

I'm rocking the Frankie Purple and Plum and seriously loving it.  I love how big the face is and it compliments my hair and many of my frequent signature colors that I wear.  The watches are made from wood so they're very durable and sturdy.  I thought the watches w…

Ocean Front Members Only

Is this a style post only I could bring you or what?  Not only did I mix prints (three times, as the Forever 21 shirt is gingham, the ModCloth briefcase is dinosaur printed, and my true vintage skirt is an ocean front border print!) but I'm mixing vintage with modern fashion.  It seems that many vintage-y bloggers tend to stray from any trends, which is silly to me because these bomber jackets are SO comfortable and practical for between seasons weather (and frankly, Members Only IS a vintage brand)!  I tied this whole look together with using the Members Only Satin Washed Boyfriend Jacket in burgundy with these platform heels from Amazon by Dadawen.  I feel the burgundy bookends bounce off the greens and blues nicely.

How's everyone's week been?  Thanks for allowing me to take a week off!  Not only did I have obligations at the Comedy Central Stage and the Upright Citizen's Brigade stage this week, but I was hosting one of my very best friends who came to visit me!  …
