    Chambray + Lace Up Wedges

    The lace up wedge trend has been making its way around social media this summer. In fact, I’ve seen a ton of pictures of shoes resembling mine – they could even be the same brand, who knows! I’ve had mine since the spring, but am just now getting the chance to show them off on here. For this look I decided to wear this chambray romper, which is not new to the blog (as seen here) and these nude colored lace up wedges out to dinner. Romper: LOFT | Shoes: Restricted via DSW | Purse: Michael Kors The nude color of these shoes isn’t available anymore, but click here for other colors. These…

    Blazer & Lace

    Yesterday I wrote about bright colors and today I’m bringing you a monochromatic look. I went out for my friend’s birthday Friday night and knew I wanted to wear this striped lace top, which has a beautiful back (which I forgot to photograph). Not only is it sheer lace, but it is sleeveless so not ideal for the cold temperatures that night. I decided to wear this one button blazer and I felt like it really completed the look and gave it a really sophisticated feel. I then paired it with nude wedges to play off the stripes of the top and do something different than black heels. I was…

    Stretch Cords

    Stretch cord pants. Are. Life. Seriously, they are my favorite pants to wear to work. They look work appropriate because they essentially look like a very thin lined cord or corduroy pant, but they are stretch so you’re walking around in the most comfortable pants ever all day. Here’s a secret – the button at the top is even fake and it’s all elastic on top. Best thing ever. Cardigan: Chadwicks Top: Loft Pants; Uniqlo Shoes: Chinese Laundrey via DSW I love that the pinwale (the lines) are so fine on these pants. In the past, I have had wider pinwale pants, but these fine lines look more youthful and fresh whereas I feel like…

    How My Cardigan Saved My Life

    Okay, so it didn’t really save my life, but it did save the day and me from embarrassment. Let’s go back to a few mornings ago. I was getting ready for work. Put on my outfit, was in the process of doing my makeup, thinking about how I wanted to write a blog post about the top I was wearing. Then, I noticed I got a tiny bit of powder on my shirt. See, my skin has been acting up lately, which has caused me to use more concealer and powder than usual. So, I try to wipe it with my finger and instead of it wiping away, the powder smears.…

    Purple & Pink Floral Combo

    Happy Wednesday! I can’t tell if this week is going by fast or slow, but I do know that the combination of pink, purple, and floral makes me happy. I’m really liking pink and purple together and I think they can easily be fall colors and aren’t just reserved for spring. Top: Loft Pants: Express Shoes: Aldo via DSW Watch: Michael Kors I paired the blouse with chocolate brown pants from Loft and taupe wedges that are so comfy. This week in my makeup basket….

    Illusion Crop Top Look

    Okay, so I don’t know what the technical name for this top is called therefore I just made up the title of this post. I don’t remember if I’ve mentioned it on this blog before but I don’t wear crop tops for 2 main reasons. 1) I have a short torso so I feel like a crop top will not be a good look for me. 2) I feel self-conscious about showing off my stomach. Yes, I freely walk around the pool and beach in a bikini so I don’t really know what the problem is but maybe it just feels different when it’s clothing as opposed to a bathing suit…

    Summer Dinner Party OOTD

    This past Friday night I went to a dinner for my friends as sort of a pre-engagement gathering (their engagement party was the next night and I will have my outfit for that up tomorrow 🙂 ). It was casual, mostly a family gathering, and going to be outside. I decided to wear a maxi dress. What I love about this dress is that it looks like 2 pieces and that I styled a tank top with a floral skirt, but it’s actually one piece. Dress: Victoria’s Secret I have this dress in another print, grey on top and a different floral print on the bottom, but I thought black was…
