The Iyer Order

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 […]

Decadent Embroidery

Happy Monday! I absolutely love a good white blouse and can’t help myself when I spot one while shopping. This blouse stood out to me as I was shopping online one night and I have to say – it was a great choice. I love the embroidery on the blouse, and like that it continues […]

Day Trip: New Braunfels & Gruene

Last weekend I went on a roadtrip to New Braunfels – a small town an hour’s drive from Austin. It was the perfect pre-birthday getaway! The weather was perfect and the food was even better in New Braunfels’ top restaurant – Huisache Grill. We then strolled through some cute vintage and antique stores littered across […]

24!

Yesterday I turned 24 years old! 😀 I’ve never been a big birthday person, but this time I decided to celebrate with some of my closest friends in Austin. I went on a roadtrip to New Braunfels and Gruene on Saturday (watch out for my travel post this week) and had a lot of great […]

Jogging Into the Weekend

I love my black, white and grey outfits, but I’m trying to dress more appropriately for the Spring with these blush pink joggers! I love how they are comfortable and easy to throw on, while still having a cool girl vibe without trying too hard (jk, I totally tried hard). I found this shirt on […]

Power Woman

It’s officially the first day of Spring! I am so excited for the warmer weather although this outfit shouts Fall/Winter. I love layering shirts underneath dresses during the cooler months, like in this post. For this look, I paired a classic button down below this bodycon dress (my graduation dress!), and to cinch the layers […]

Festival Fridays

Hellooo weekend! 🙂 I’m so excited for this weekend in particular because I’ve had to work the past 3! I got off early on Friday and I’m pumped to explore SXSW 😀 I feel so privileged to live in Austin because of how many cool events take place here. For those of you that are […]

Trenched in the Rain

I’m trying to cope with a gloomy Monday morning by wearing this fun shift dress that I scored when I randomly wandered into the Forever 21 sale one particularly boring afternoon. Would you believe me if I told you that my Starbucks was more expensive than this dress?! It was listed at $25 with 50% […]

Denim on Denim

I love wearing denim on denim – especially when they’re of a different wash. I love the fit of Levi’s jeans, and this one is an old pair that I updated by adding some rips at the bottom. Austin has been rainy this week so I paired the look with my classic trench, a staple […]
