    Denim Jumpsuit + Toggle Coin Necklace

    Yesterday was a long day at work with Back to School Night until 8 so I’m hoping today is nice and quick. I’ve had family in town this week and so last weekend we went out to dinner. I wore a denim jumpsuit and my new (to me) toggle coin necklace that has the Greek god Eros on it. Eros is son of Ares and Aphrodite and the Roman equivalent is Cupid, so that’s cool! I decided to wear brown strappy sandals and curled my hair so I felt like I had that 70s vibe going on! Jumpsuit: Abercrombie & Fitch | Sandals: DSW (here) | Necklace: The Styled Collection…

    Leopard Sheath Dress

    This past weekend was such a whirlwind with house stuff, family coming to town, and a family bbq that I actually didn’t have the Sunday night blues because going to work seems like a nice escape from all the craziness! So let’s hope work today is pretty good so I don’t regret today’s desire to go to work. Last week I wore this leopard sheath dress to work. Normally I wouldn’t think to wear a full-on animal print dress to work, but the colors of this dress are so autumnal (one of my favorite words) that I thought it just worked. The base color of the dress is like a…

    Metallic Stripe Puff Sleeve Top

    Things are slowly moving along with my condo. I had the hot water heater replaced and my new dishwasher was delivered. I went to pick up samples of quartz for new countertops and floor samples for new vinyl flooring. Hopefully I’ll have some more updates soon! Once things really get done I can do some proper home/home decor posts. Anyway, last month I went in to Express to happily spend my birthday coupon. When I saw this black puff sleeve top with multicolor metallic pinstripes I had to try it on. I loved it immediately and decided to get it. The top has a slightly cropped fit to it so…

    Brushmarl Dress

    You might be wondering what exactly brushmarl is. It’s actually exactly what it sounds like. A lightweight marled dress with a brushed finish. I’m a big fan of the Lou & Grey pieces that LOFT carries. They are the softest clothes! They make amazing loungewear, but I’ve gotten some great pieces from them that could be casual or work wear appropriate. This brushmarl dress is one of those pieces. I can wear it with sandals out and about or to work with wedges or flats and some accessories. I wore this grey button down dress to work with a Kendra Scott necklace in my birthstone. Love the split neck and…

    Olive Button Shorts + Strappy Bodysuit

    Often times I put together an outfit in my mind and just hope that it will look as good in real life as it does in my head. Usually it works out, in my opinion, and this outfit turned out better than I imagined! I paired my pull on olive shorts with button detailing and a black ribbed bodysuit with a strappy back. I love the way this bodysuit fits. It is so flattering and isn’t too skin tight and uncomfortable in the least. I also love the straps and square neckline. So on trend! And since it’s a bodysuit it’s so easy to just wear the pull-on shorts with…

    Warm Saffron Smocked Jumpsuit

    Monday again and this time a full week of work since last week was just a 4 day week. I’m hoping to get the ball rolling on my multiple home projects this week so I can start to see an end in sight – even if it’s in the distance. I don’t mind if things take a while to get done as long as I know they’re getting done, if you that makes sense. The weather here has been really nice. Not hot, but not cold. Just really pleasant. I think we’re supposed to get some rain this week, but hopefully it’s nothing too bad. This smocked jumpsuit is the…

    Striped Gauze Shorts

    I hate shorts that are uncomfortable, too short, too tight, and so on. So when I find shorts that check all the boxes – are comfortable, aren’t too tight, don’t feel like your butt is hanging out – I tend to get them in multiple colors. These striped gauze material shorts with a smock waist are those kind of shorts. I got them in this black & white stripe and in a solid black because they’re that good – plus I got them on sale for like $9. These shorts are flowy and comfortable – hello elastic waist – and so easy to dress up or down. I wore the…

    Washed Out Striped Front Tie Top

    Today is the first day of school! I may have wanted to cry last night thinking about the daunting new school year and going back to work, but hopefully today is nice and smooth. I had a productive long weekend with my move and some furniture shopping for my new place. This week will be busy too with my closing of my condo scheduled for Thursday morning (going in to work late that day) so hopefully this is a good week overall! About today’s post though – I love clothes that look modern but give me a retro vibe at the same time and this striped front tie sleeveless top…

    Restyled: Palm Print & Beaded Hearts

    Happy Labor Day! I hope all of you who have off for the long weekend are enjoying your day. I’m officially (minus furniture) moved out of my townhouse and back at my parents’ for the next few weeks. I’m back to work tomorrow and this time with students so I’ll officially be back to work and not just sitting through meetings and presentations. But I’m not letting go of summer completely just yet so I’m back with a restyling of my palm print sweater tank. I wore it on the blog a few summers ago with cropped leggings while I was in Cape Cod. Or maybe it was on the…

    Tie-Back Wrap Blouse

    Before I get started with today’s post, I’m sharing a little life update. Tonight is my last night in my place and it feels so weird. I have been slowly packing up my stuff for the past few days, but I think it’s just now really hitting me that I’m for real moving out and not going to be sleeping here any more, cooking in the kitchen, watching tv on the couch  here etc. It’s a long story that I’m not going to get in to right now about why I’m moving, but in any case it’s such a weird feeling. I’ll be moving back to my parents’ house for…
