OTS at the Workplace + Topshop Sale Picks

The best thing I can do to get over Monday morning blues is to wear a kickass outfit. Not only does it uplift my mood, but I find that looking good also helps me focus on work better. For today’s look, I could not wait to wear one of my new favorite OTS tops, but […]

$25 Chanel Vibes

Find a girl that doesn’t love Chanel and I’ll start believing that unicorns exist… However, not all of us have the cash muh-nay to be spending on an actual Chanel dress (at least not me!). When I saw this dress on Shein, the unfinished tweed hem, off white color and black satin bow on top reminded […]

The Summer Halter Trend + Verb Haircare

Hi guys! I’ve had such a crazy moving weekend but I’m so glad it’s done. I absolutely love my new apartment and I’m looking forward to introducing some lifestyle content on my blog! On Friday I was invited to celebrate the launch of Verb’s new Sea line at the South Congress Hotel pool along with […]

Navy Pleats and Hand-Me-Downs

I love a classic dress that I can wear to work regardless of season or trend. What’s more classic than a navy, pleated dress that hits right below the knee (and has pockets)? 😀 Some, or perhaps most might argue that it’s an unflattering length for a dress, but I absolutely love anything that goes past my […]

Gucci Inspired Floral Sneakers

Hi guys! I’d taken a small break from blogging this week and I miss it already! For this post, I wanted my accessories to take center stage. When I saw these sneakers in a cute store in downtown Austin called Luxe Apothetique, I nearly screamed with elation because they looked identical to this Gucci pair. While […]

Striped OTS Blouse

Considering that the past two Spring/Summer seasons have seen the OTS trend blow up everywhere, it was odd that I only owned one OTS piece. I decided to change that when I saw all the options Yoins offered! I ordered this classic striped number and decided to dress it up today with black slacks. I […]

Commencement

This weekend I walked The University of Texas commencement ceremony as a graduate with a Master’s degree in Civil Engineering. I officially graduated in December 2016 (outfit post here), but walked the Spring commencement because my parents were here! It was so fulfilling to see how proud my mom was when my name (mispronounced, duh) […]

Paperbag Waist Shorts

One of the perks of having my parents visit me (apart from the great food my mom makes) is that I get free photoshoots courtesy of my dad! I think he did great on this one 😀 I have been on the hunt for the perfect paperbag waist pants for work, but when I saw […]

JORD Wood Watches GIVEAWAY

I love a good neutral watch that pairs with all my outfits, but I also like to experiment with my style. So when I heard about JORD Wood Watches, I was intrigued because I’d never considered wood to be a material that watches could be made out of. As I learned more about the brand, […]

Giraffes and Joggers

It’s Friday! I’m especially excited about this weekend because my parents are here in Austin, visiting me all the way from India 🙂  I moved away from home less than two years ago and I’ve gotten a lot closer to my parents than when I actually lived with them, so I’m really happy that they […]
