A Valentine’s Day outfit // scallop hem skirt + heart tights

Happy Friday all! I’ve got another festive Valentine’s Day outfit today, because I can’t help getting into the spirit. I bought these awesome heart tights from Modcloth about a month ago and knew I was going to save them for February. Hope you like this outfit!

A Valentine’s Day outfit // Red dress + polka dot tights

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.

Fashion // Tuxedo-style dress + mod shoes for work

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!

Fashion // How to rock the embroidery trend this season

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.

Fashion // Golden Hour

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.

End of summer wish list // transitioning a 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:
