New Look // Ready for Summer in Pink Florals

Hi all! Today’s look is all about summer, flowy silhouettes, and trendy styles. A couple months ago I bought these culotte-style shorts from Simple Retro, my second pair of the same pattern. This style is so much fun to wear and I always feel so cool, trendy, and comfortable in them! And to make the outfit even more free-flowing and loose, I wore a new longline vest/kimono-style piece I picked up from a recent trip to Woodstock, NY. Hope you like this look!

The deep pink, very sharp heels are the perfect contrast to this flowy look! I love layering different shades of the same color, to create a monochromatic effect. Bonus points if it’s pink, one of my absolute favorite colors! Super girly, but that’s just how I roll.Read More »

New Look // Mixing Patterns: Blue Stripes & Pink Florals

Hey everybody! It’s officially the season for summer dresses. This time of year I always stock my closet with versatile, lightweight, and girly summer dresses that make getting ready, whether for work or play, a total breeze. I played around wit mixing patterns today, pairing this beautiful, fit-and-flare blue striped dress with pink floral heels, combining some of my favorite style elements: florals, full skirts, and a contrasting color palette. Hope you like!

New Look // A Girly Summer Outfit (With Bunnies!) ft. GlassesUSA

Hi all! Since it’s finally summer and all, I thought I’d share a fun outfit with you today, featuring cute prints and silhouettes, and new sunglasses from GlassesUSA. I’ve worked with them before–they’ve sent me a pair of prescription glasses that made me actually like wearing glasses again after not owning a pair for like seven years, and their sunglasses are pretty awesome, too. The outfit I have to share today is definitely cutesy–hope you like it!

New Look // Vintage Dress from the 1950s (That Makes Me Happy)

Hi all! This year I got obsessed with one thing: finding perfect and beautiful vintage dresses, prompted by a pin I saw linking to Etsy. I got lost in the world of Etsy vintage listings, and wound up buying two amazing cotton dresses from the 1950s, one yellow and blue, and one off-white and light brown. This one is the latter.

Recently, I’ve been all about the full skirts and midi lengths. There’s something about them that’s so feminine and empowering. I love the swish of the fabric and sitting down and seeing the skirt billow around me! Plus, I love twirling. 😉 So fun! This dress is from an Etsy shop I found that has a ton of vintage dresses. This one was probably handmade, as it’s unlined and has no tags. I love that vintage clothing has history, and also it’s nice to buy secondhand sometimes.

Hope you like this look!

New Look // Retro Shorts + Pastel Colors for Spring

Hello all! Today’s look is all about spring pastels and retro vibes. Last summer, I was sent a pair of vintage-pattern polka dot shorts from Simple Retro, and they quickly became one of my favorite pieces ever—I wore them a dozen times, in summer and in the winter, and got so much use from them that I decided to buy another pair. Here they are, in a soft, dusty lavender color! They’re perfect for spring!

New Look // Trendy Style with Embroidery + Bell Sleeves

Hey all! This week I have a fun outfit to share combining two major trends this year, and two of my favorite ones possibly ever: embroidery and bell sleeves! It’s definitely an eye-catching combination, but I think it’s super fun to style these two very bold trends in one look, and this is an outfit I’ve worn a few times, and one I always feel pretty and confident wearing! I’m pretty obsessed with embroidery lately, ain’t gonna lie. Anything floral print pretty much has my heart. <3

New Look // How to Style a Denim Dress for Spring

One of the best pieces I bought this year was this simple, button-down denim dress. A frugal shopper, I scored it on sale at Wet Seal just before they closed down, and despite the price tag, it’s a quality piece I’ve worn a dozen times already since I bought it in late January. I’ve worn it to work with tights during winter, and now that it’s a wet, chilly spring here, it’s still the perfect casual work look—with a spring upgrade!

New Look // Spring Showers, with a fun umbrella

Happy Friday, all! Today I’m heading off with my cousins and sisters to Austin, Texas, for my cousin’s bachelorette party. It’s been a chilly, wet April and I’m so excited to be spending the weekend somewhere really hot! I bought this umbrella about a month ago when I saw it on Amazon and fell in love. I used to work at an art company, and I have always loved ballet, so this umbrella, printed with Degas’ ballerinas, was a perfect choice to keep me dry in the April showers. Hope you like this look!

Spring Work Look // Floral Cigarette Trousers + Longline Vest

I’m all about trying ways to make my work outfits super fun, and one of the ways I do that is by playing with patterns and shapes. There’s nothing I love better than a good ol’ floral print, so wearing anything with a floral print (like embroidery) instantly makes me feel more like myself! Which is especially important when you’re dressing for work–business casual can even be a drag sometimes.

I put together this look with shades of blue and a contrasting pale pink shoe. I think it’s a perfect work-appropriate spring look that you can wear afterward, too. Letting an outfit take you from desk to dinner is a definite plus! Hope you like this look. 🙂Read More »
