Mustard

10/25/18






One of my favorite colors this fall has been mustard. It's been everywhere. I jumped right on this trend. I wore this mustard dress to a wedding a few weeks ago and I wore this mustard turtleneck to work last week. It doesn't stop there! Other recent mustard purchases include a mustard blanket scarf I plan on wearing when it gets a little cooler and the mustard dress in my post today!





I snatched this dress up at Forever 21 last week. With a $15 price tag, how could I not get it?  The color was just perfect. I love dresses made out of sweater-material. You can't tell in the pictures, but the dress has a little breast pocket. The pocket came in super handy when my hands were full at work. I stuck my phone in the pocket! 

When I put the dress on, I knew it needed a little something extra, so I added this fun scarf. It's actually a hair accessory, but it works perfectly as a scarf too, doesn't it?

Other mustard-wear I'm eyeing: these gorgeous mustard pants, this mustard pencil dress that's perfect for the office, and this fun off-the-shoulder mustard sweater dress

A Little Gaudy

10/17/18






HAPPY FALL! Finally, cooler temperatures. While other people love summer, the beach, and the ocean, I prefer fall. I love sitting on our balcony with a hot cup of coffee, making cozy foods like chicken pot pie, and lighting a million fall scented candles (like pumpkin spice and apple cinnamon!).

So, onto my outfit! I went to Zara the other day with my friend. The mission: to find these pearl bedazzled jeans. I came out with the jeans, the top in this post, and these amazing cobalt heels. The heels were returned shortly (what's the opposite of buyers remorse?). I kept the top - because how can I not? How cute is it? I obviously kept the jeans too. 



 

If you know me, follow me on instagram, or read my blog, you know that I'm basically a grandma. I'm an (almost) 30 year old  who would much rather lay on the couch reading a book than go out. That totally transcends to my wardrobe. I love anything "grandma-esque", and anything gaudy. This top is a little gaudy, but I love it. The printed jewel design is just so me and added some much needed flair to the boring work outfits I've been wearing lately. I paired the top with black pants, gold earrings, and one of my favorite lipsticks, Captive by Mac (I wore this shade on my wedding day!). 



If you're feeling a little blah lately like me, do yourself a favor and go buy this shirt!

Thanks so much for reading! Enjoy the fall weather :)

Flower Power

After a (very, very) long hiatus... I'm back! 

What have I been up to for the past few months? Since my last post in December of 2017, Nick and I celebrated our first Christmas and New Years as a married couple, I traveled to places I've never been before (LA, Minneapolis, and Hawaii), and celebrated weddings of best friends, and stood by their sides. It's been a fun, busy, and exciting last few months!

Now, on to more important matters, like fashion! 





I saw these super cute pants a few months ago at Forever 21. I thought that they'd be perfect for my summer wardrobe. They're also super comfortable. Any pants that I can wear to work that feel like pajamas, are a win in my book! Since the pants are a little "loud", I paired them with a solid coral top and a coral lipstick. No Office Fashionista look is complete without a bold lip!

There's still a few weeks of summer left (the official start of fall is Sept 22!) and there's still time for you to rock floral pants. For cooler temperatures, you can pair these pants with a black blazer. Outside of work, wear the pants with a tank top, or a bathing suit top! 

I love these floral pants from Zara (on sale!), this wide leg version from Target, and this structured version from H&M

Thanks so much for reading! Have a great week!
