Olive Tones for Spring

I love that this season, Spring trends have been a little more unexpected (Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking…). One of them has been the color olive. I’ve been seeing olive pop up on the runway, in other bloggers’ posts and in everyday streetstyle which is where I get a lot of inspiration from (yes, I love people watching, particularly […]

POW!

It’s finally Friday! These past few weeks have been intense at work, so I’m looking forward to this weekend all the more. I ordered this skirt for work from H&M a few weeks ago, but for some reason I wanted to style it down for the blog. I love when pieces are versatile enough for […]

Stripes & Bows

Hi! Late Monday post because I’ve been working all weekend and the whole of today 🙁 The weather has been weird in Austin lately, but I wanted to wear something that embodied Spring/Summer – and there is not a more obvious trend this year than the blue and white stripes and bow detailed blouses that […]

Styling the Overall Dress

The denim overall dress has been a trend I’ve seen a lot this Spring, and I opted for a black version! I will admit that it was a bit of a style challenge, but I think I eventually came up with a look that I love. I paired it with this super soft boat neck T-shirt and […]

Tulip Sleeves & Floral Lace

I love a good pencil skirt for work – it makes me feel like a total #bosswoman. I especially love when it has delicate lace detailing, making it all the more feminine yet powerful. I wore this skirt on my first day at work, and I still reach for it on days I need extra […]

Versace Palazzo Empire – Review

Happy Friday! It’s been a week since I received this beauty in the mail, and I figured it was enough time for me to give you my honest opinion on the Versace Palazzo Empire tote. If you’ve read this post, you’ll know that I was lucky enough to win this bag! So here are my […]

Styling the LBD 2 Ways – Collab

Happy Monday! I love a good tailored dress for work, but sometimes I just want to wear a comfy T-shirt dress and call it a day. Well, today was one of those days, so I had to tailor it myself by adding a waist belt. I bought it earlier this year after finally finding one […]

Swayed by Suede

I love using fun puns for my blog post titles, so I was pur-suede-d to come up with one for this outfit too 😛 (somebody slap me) I’ve been really into suede pieces lately, and I feel like this jacket and shoe combo from Zara are perfect for the Spring. Coincidentally, this gingham dress is also from […]

Loungewear Inspired

Loungewear has been a huge trend for the past two seasons, and I wanted to incorporate it into work wear, particularly on a sleepy Monday morning. I like the subtle black stripe on this shirt from Banana Republic and decided to pair it with my black wide leg trousers – which are just as comfy […]

The Perfect Spring Jacket

I did it you guys – I bought the jacket! I’d been eyeing this faux suede beauty from Zara for a while now, and I like to justify unreasonable cravings during the month of March by calling it my “birthday month” (lame excuse #1). In my defense, Austin was getting slightly chilly (low 70s…and maybe even […]
