    Striped Square Neck Tank

    I’ve heard lots of people say that square neck tops are really flattering and I agree. I don’t know what it is about the style, but it is really flattering on all body types. When I saw this striped square neck tank top I thought it was such a classic top. Easy to dress up or down, it’s a staple. I wore the tank top with black gauzy shorts and my black statement ring. The top looks black and white to me, but it’s actually listed as navy on the website. Top: LOFT (here) | Shorts: Apt. 9 via Kohl’s | Sandals: Vici | Ring: Amazon (here) The top is…

    Black Bomber Jacket + White Wrap Bodysuit

    It’s back to work for me today. Well, virtual work. I’m still teaching online since schools are still closed due to the pandemic. I’m writing this ahead of time, so hopefully I did not oversleep this morning! It’s supposed to be really stormy and windy today with severe weather, so fingers crossed my power doesn’t go out! Working from home and unable to leave makes a power outage even worse. Today I’m sharing the other outfit I wore during my black & white shoot with Lauren last month before the lockdown started. I stuck to black and white clothes because I thought that would lend itself better to the shading…

    B&W: Floral Bobble Sweater

    I hope you all had a nice weekend and got to get out and get some fresh air. It was beautiful here so I went for nice long walks both days so i could get some exercise in and fresh air before it rains a bunch this week and I’m really trapped inside. But, before all the lockdowns started, I met up with Lauren for some photos down by the beach. I had told Lauren about my idea to do some black & white photos during this weird time of year where it’s still kind of winter blah-ness outside. Little did I know when we planned this out that the…

    Photo Challenge: Serene

    We made it to Friday! Now that it’s well and truly the holiday season I thought this photo below would be a great photo response to the challenge, “Serene“. I took this photo a few years ago in New York City during my annual outing to see the tree at Rockefeller Center. If you’ve ever been there you’ll know just how insanely crowded it is in that area since everyone wants to see the tree and the Saks light show across the street. But, if you venture a little further away from the tree you can find some quieter streets and it’s actually pretty serene or as serene as a…

    Black & White Gingham

    The look I’m sharing today was meant to be a little more geared towards fall with a black cardigan over this off the shoulder black & white gingham top. But, like the choker jumpsuit I recently shared, the day I shot this look it was too warm out to wear a sweater. It works out though because without a sweater you can see the white tassels on the sleeves. Top & Jeans: LOFT | Sunglasses: Quay Australia | Purse: Coach Keeping this look black & white helped create a colder weather look so despite the fact that I didn’t get to wear my black sweater as planned with this look,…

    Black & White Geometric Print

    Back to basics after a long weekend. The long weekend for Thanksgiving was nice and much needed. It’s the longest break I’ve had since August. Mondays are always hard, but the Monday after a break is the worst. It’s like you’re starting all over. So this past Monday, my OOTD was definitely a back to basics kind of day. I wore black and white, but mixed it up a bit by wearing a geometric print top. Top: Express Pants: Loft The top is loose and wide at the shoulders. I think if you wore it more casually, you could wear it off one shoulder, but obviously I didn’t do that since I was…
