    French Terry Zip-Up

    We’re officially into summer weather, but I think we’ve all experienced the problem of sweltering hot weather outside and freezing cold air conditioning inside. Layering is key to combat this issue so that you can shed layers once leaving the air conditioning and layer up when re-entering the frozen tundra that is most office buildings, malls, etc. in the summer. At my work, one side of the building can be drastically different than another part of the building. Some rooms are so hot that you can’t even concentrate while you’re shivering in other rooms. It’s not a secret on here that I love cardigans and this French Terry Zip-Up one…

    Polka Dot Tiers

    I was in a girly/polka dot mood yesterday. This tiered top is sleeveless so I paired it with a thick grey, open knit cardigan. Guess what? I was still freezing at work! Sweater:  Express Top: Loft Pants:Express Watch: Anne Klein I love this dusty pink color because it added some color to my grey & black ensemble but it’s not in your face bright. It’s a delicate color to match perfectly with the feminine tiers of the top. In my Monday-Friday (but really Thursday because I have a 4 day weekend for President’s Day!!) makeup basket this week… Face: Smashbox More than Primer Blemish Control, Covergirl Tone Rehab Foundation, Benefit Erase Paste,…

    Arrows & Boots

    Things have been a little busy and crazy lately, but a fresh look and new boots is just what I needed! If you read my recent fashion inspiration post, I’m trying to have more fun with layers. Tank Top: Forever21 Tee: Mudd – Basic V-Neck Tee (Egret Arrow) via Kohls Cardigan: Chadwicks Pants: Uniqlo Boot Socks: American Eagle Boots: Steve Madden I love the arrows on this t-shirt. I think it’s fun and adorable and the colors on it are muted and perfect for fall/winter. The boots are a recent purchase from this past weekend and I love the cognac color. They were on sale too which makes them even better! You know a girl’s…

    Fashion Inspiration: Layered Look

    The Librarians: Cassandra’s Style by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring sweaters I’ve seen some episodes of TNT’s “The Librarians” and it’s a fun, adventure type show based off the previous TV movies. One of the characters, Cassandra, has a quirky style, which I’ve noticed features lots of layers and tights. I love to see what they put her in every week because it’s so different! They love to put her in peter pan collars, which I’m a fan of, but I would never think to layer it under a gauzy, floral print top and under short-alls!My favorite look of this set is the blazer with the asymmetrical skort. So fresh and chic while…

    Fringed Lace & Layers Top

    Now that Halloween seems like a distant memory (how’d that happen so quickly?) – we are getting into holiday mode. I went to the mall yesterday and all the Christmas decorations including the tree and a line for pictures with Santa, were already there. I haven’t begun my Christmas shopping yet, but I have started a list of what I plan to get people or at least my ideas for them. This post is not actually holiday related, but I’m making the connection because the color of the top I wore yesterday and the style are very holiday-ish in my opinion. Top: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohls Pants: Uniqlo Watch: Anne Klein The upper half of my…

    Polka Dot Layered Top OOTD

    It’s a brand new week and I have a new OOTD for you all. However, it’s technically an outfit from last Friday. Maybe it’s wishful thinking on my part that it was still the weekend! So today I’m showing you a layered look. It is one piece, but looks like separates and I love the effect. Top: Loft Jeans: Loft Shoes: Keds Crash Back Slip-on Sneaker via DSW Watch: Fossil I don’t remember exactly where I got this necklace from, but I feel like it was from JCrew Factory. I loved pairing this necklace with the top, because the top has this casual, classy vibe with it’s grey and white combo. It looks classy…

    Sheer Floral//Layers & Textures

    It’s no surprise that I would wear a top with a floral print, but what I love about this outfit I put together is how well the layers went together and the layered textures look really appealing to the (my) eye. This floral, long sleeve top is sheer so I had to wear a tank top underneath. Instead of going with the standard white or black, I opted for green-ish blue, because I thought that would be a nice, complimentary color to show through. It’s hard to tell in this picture, but in person you can really see the tank top/color through the shirt. I wore the same tweed-like textured…

    Layers & Notched Stripe Skirt OOTD

    Picking out what I’m going to wear the next day is something I enjoy doing (most of the time). I rarely hate what I’ve decided to wear and while of course not every day is a stand-out outfit there are some days where I am really pleased with the way my outfit came together. I had one of those days this week. I had an idea in my head of what I wanted to wear. I knew I wanted to wear this notched stripe elastic waist skirt and boots. Next, I was thinking of what top to wear with it. I actually thought of wearing a bright, solid color top, but…
