Legs For Days

This week, I wanted to put together two outfits based around this tan sweater I found on sale from Forever 21 on Black Friday two years ago for $7! While it’s not the best quality and won’t last for years, I think the color and fit make it look like I paid a lot more […]

Flared Friday

As I had mentioned in Monday’s post, this shirt was one of my favorite finds last year. I wanted to display it in all it’s glory for this look, by pairing it with basic pieces that nearly everyone would have in their wardrobe. I think the glorious flared sleeve detail is the key to pulling […]

Spring Time Layers

Me? Wearing more than 3 colors in one outfit? No way! I’m usually not comfortable sporting colorful outfits, but this pretty floral dress is an exception. It’s the perfect spring/summer work dress, but I wanted to layer it to make it wearable for when it’s a bit more chilly outside. This flared sleeve shirt is […]

Old World Charm

ย ย  Happy Friday! In my previous post, I styled this white button down for work – an outfit I wear on repeat almost every week. This look is something I’d wear over the weekend for brunch. I feel like this outfit has a quaint vintage vibe that is a stark contrast to my previous look, […]

The Classics

Welcome to a new series on the blog, where I focus on one piece every week and style it for work on Monday and keep it casual on Friday! I want to kick things off with a classic white button down – a timeless piece that every woman needs in her wardrobe. I paired it […]

Playa del Carmen – Part 2

If you ever take a trip to Cancun or Playa del Carmen, I highly recommend a trip to the Puerto Adventuras area. We had 4 hours on this boat, in the middle of the Caribbean Sea with beautiful views of the ocean and clear water to jump into! It was so much fun dancing in […]

Playa del Carmen – Part 1

Hola from Mexico! I’ve come to realize over the past two days that my Spanish accent is terrible – but that hasn’t stopped me from trying to pick up as many touristy words as I can ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m on a corporate retreat (3 weeks after I joined the company ๐Ÿ˜› ) at Playa del Carmen, […]

Mock Turtleneck Sweater

Just when I thought the weather was getting sunny and warm, it decided to rain this weekend here in Austin (rolls eyes ๐Ÿ˜ ). I wanted to dressย casual to run some errands, and my go-to sweater for this kind of weather is this mock turtleneck, which is quite shapeless but sooo comfy. You know those […]

Austin Winter

Austin’s weather has been bipolar lately, with freezing temperatures one week, and the perfect warm winter sun the next. This week it decided to get up to the 80s (25 degrees Celsius), so I used the opportunity to wear this skirt I scored at the Banana Republic sale last year on Black Friday for under […]

Styling the Sleeveless Trench

The sleeveless trench vest/coat has been a trend for almost 3 years now, but I got my hands on this particular one in Fall 2015. I was impressedย byย how it could elevateย a simple outfit without looking over the top. There are so many possibilities when it comes to styling it, whether it be casual or work […]
