    Gold Buttons

    Dress pants are not the most exciting clothing item. At all. But anyone who has to wear them knows that a nice, new pair is always welcome especially when they are a bit different than what you already have. When I went in to LOFT to spend my birthday certificate in August, I saw these dress pants with gold buttons in a sailor style and I loved them!

I’ve worn it on the blog before (here) and I love it paired with these…

    Restyled: Hi-Lo Plaid + Mint Statement Earrings

    A sure-fire way to make a very casual outfit look trendier or “nicer” is to add some jewelry. In this look I’m wearing a hi-lo plaid top in the softest material ever and mint green bead statement earrings. I’ve worn this top on the blog before (here) but this time I added super fun earrings. Top: Aeropostale | Jeans: LC Lauren Conrad via DSW | Shoes: Steve Madden via DSW | Earrings: Baublebar (here) The seed beads that make up these mint green earrings are so cute. I love mint green and when I saw these earrings I had to have them! They come in multiple colors, but you know…

    Pink Trim Drop Waist Dress

    How was your weekend? Mine was not as relaxing as I had hoped. I mean, I knew I had a lot of things to get done, but I wish I had a little more down time. After a week of things just not going right and a weekend that continued with that theme, I’m hoping that this new week will be completely different. I’m trying to be super productive today and get a few blog posts knocked out tonight since tomorrow I’ll be out at a concert after work and Wednesday night I’m going to a ceramics place for a fun holiday craft (more on that at a later time!)…

    Foil Florals + Faux Suede

    If you caught my Instagram stories yesterday when I shared my outfit of the day then you saw this outfit. I took these photos last weekend, but wore this outfit to work yesterday. The long sleeve tee is dark blue with a painted and foiled floral print in the front. The flowers feel like they are painted on and some have that sheen to it like they are foiled. The design and color combos are so pretty. I paired the top with my faux suede button up skirt that I’ve had for a few years. Finishing off the look I wore tights and my brown slouchy boots.

    Embellished Necklace + Velvet

    For a second last night I thought it was Wednesday and then I realized it was only Tuesday. I hate when that happens!  But today is Wednesday and I’m hoping it doesn’t drag. Today I’m sharing a necklace I wore to work last week with a blue velvet top. This blue velvet top has been on the blog before. I love the rich sapphire blue color and the ruffled sleeves. Velvet is such a sumptuous, beautiful fabric for fall and winter and blue velvet is probably my favorite. I wore it to work last week with this beautiful embellished necklace. It features rosey hued pearls and crystallized links. I’m not sure…

    White Stripe Joggers + Weekend Tee

    Are you the kind of person who gets changed in to comfy clothes as soon as you get home? I am! Actually, I like being as comfortable as possible at all times, which is why the rise of athleisure is perfect for me for those casual non-work days. Over the weekend I wore the perfect casual, comfy outfit for runnings errands and having a lazy day around the house. These black joggers with white stripe down the pant legs are so soft and have a decent thickness/weight to the material without being uncomfortable. I paired it with my new tee that has writing on it in embroidery. It says “Dear…

    Pink Keyhole Tunic

    I’m fully embracing fall clothing now despite the up and down temperatures. One day it’s cool and in the 60s and the next it’s in the 80s. But I’m ready for all things fall! I’m sharing the outfit I wore last weekend in today’s post. It’s a light pink flowy sleeveless top/tunic with little gold embellishments and peachy pink ribbon detailing. I wore it with brown leggings, a maroon-ish boyfriend cardigan, and my pink quilted slip-ons. And I can’t forget my pink octagon shaped sunnies!

    Pink Floral French Terry Dress

    French terry has to be one of the most comfortable materials ever. I love my french terry items because they’re so soft and cozy. French terry is a knitted terry cloth and it’s usually super soft. Just think, it feels like you’re dressing yourself in a plush bathrobe or towel! I got this pink french terry dress with large florals on it and I love it! I wore it to work earlier this week just as I wore it in these photos – with my trust chunky cocoon cardigan and taupe booties. It was such a comfortable outfit that looked really put together and stylish. Dress: Apt. 9 via Kohl’s…

    Striped Smocked OTS

    I’ve been waiting to wear this for a while and I’m so glad I finally got to wear it over the weekend. This striped smocked off-the-shoulder top has 3/4 bell sleeves and is so comfortable and cute. I love the stripes as well as the smocked design. I love smock tops because they’re so stretchy and comfortable. This is lightweight so it’s perfect for warm fall days. It was too hot over the summer to wear it and soon it will be too cold to wear it so I had to take advantage of this short window of warm to mild fall temps!

    Paisley Tacked Ruana

    Happy Sunday! Where do the weekends go? I wish they didn’t go so fast. Hopefully today won’t fly by. Today I’m sharing a very casual look. Well, it could be dressed up more, but I wore it dressed down. Last weekend, I wore this floral and paisley tacked ruana with a light blue tee and black leggings. If you don’t know, ruanas are sort of like ponchos or shawls usually. I wore a beautiful plaid one with pompoms on the blog last year (here). This one is definitely lighter weight than that nice fuzzy one. Another difference with this paisley one is that it’s tacked meaning there is stitching under…
