Hi all and happy Friday! It’s been a very long week for me; it was the first full week of work in about two weeks, so it has been a struggle. As always, the bright point is spring! Here’s an outfit I put together with one of my new favorite spring/summer dresses, that looks like a picnic table! Of course, you need a wicker bag for a picnic…hope you like this look! 😉
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!
Hi all! Spring is on the horizon, I very much hope. Today I’m sharing an outfit featuring one of my favorite trends: the “deconstructed” or redesigned button-down trend! I got this amazing top, with stripes, balloon sleeves, and a bow at the waist, and I was obsessed with it. It’s such a fun, unique spin on a regular ol’ white shirt, and it’s also perfect for work. I always think about clothes now in terms of whether or not it’s work-appropriate, and half the fun I have with fashion these days is finding ways to put together cute outfits that show off my personality, all the while being cognizant of work-appropriate attire! I think this definitely fits the bill.
Happy February! As always, time is going by super fast. In the spirit of the season, I thought I’d share a perfect Valentine’s Day look here today. I happen to always like Valentine’s Day despite the fact that I was almost always single during it. I think it’s due to my mother: when we were kids she always bought us candy and cards for Valentine’s Day and that always made me think of it as a day to celebrate love in all its forms, and to reject spending a lot in favor of small acts of love.
Hi all and happy Friday! I’m back today with a cool look I wore to work, featuring a collared swing dress that looks a little like a tuxedo, with black tights and these amazing, pointed toe black heels with a t-strap. I love how this look is a little mod and definitely a little edgy. I usually don’t wear a lot of black, but I love how cool this looks. Hope you like!
One of my absolute favorite trends for 2016 is embroidery. I love it on clothing, jackets, jeans, and even shoes! My obsession with floral prints means that of course I would automatically gravitate toward floral print embroidery. I’ve been on the lookout for ways to rock the embroidery trend this fall/winter season, and I found a perfect way in this gorgeous embroidered bomber jacket from Missguided.
I love long summer evenings when the sun takes forever to set, and so for hours the entire world looks like it’s gilded. I took these photos during that golden hour time, and it was actually perfect for this outfit. The romper is a knit romper from Shein, a website I’ve reviewed before and still find to be a decent outlet for trends, and this soft jumpsuit is a perfect transition piece for my wardrobe.
Okay, I know it’s not the end of summer yet, but when I shop mid-July, it’s usually because I’m transitioning a wardrobe to work in the early fall, too! I’m a big fan of the boho look, but with tailored pieces and soft accents, and this year is no different. All summer I’ve been really into florals, maxis, and my good ol’ easy fallback, the romper. (Actually, now I’m realizing that my favorite summer looks are one-piece, easy to style outfits, which makes perfect sense for an easy summer wardrobe!) So for early fall, when it’s still warm during the day but cooler at night, here are some of the things on my wish list:
