While doing laundry last night, I came across this romper that I totally forgot I had, and I had all intentions of wearing a black blazer over it (it’s backless, so gotta wear something over it to work). I went into my closet and found another thing I totally forgot about: this striped ponte blazer! With that I realized, sometimes you just have to mix prints. Tricks like this are the key to re-wearing items, and I am a huge fan! I woke up a little late (exhausted) so I didn’t have time to think about accessories. Luckily this bright red bag is a statement on its own.
Also, we finished House of Cards last night and I am kind of freaking out – what am I supposed to watch for the rest of the year??!! Help!
On moi: Polka dot jersey romper (sold out, similar style here (EXTRA 20% OFF), Ponte striped blazer (sold out, similar styles here (EXTRA 40% OFF!), here and here), cut-out sandals c/o, red satchel – ON SALE! c/o, oversized sunnies c/o.
I’ve been sick for a few weeks now (still in recovery), and I spent all of last night trying to pack for a fun little girls weekend (BFF bachelorette), so needless to say I am ready for a little airplane nap already! I packed away a lot of my favorites (all my black and a few other choice items), so this morning my closet felt a little like slim pickins! To pump up my mood I grabbed some bright blue clothes, because what goes better with gray skies than some bright blue?
These pants have been hanging in my closet for about a year, and they must have fit back then but boy are they baggy now! I originally got them because I love prints but now they seem quite timely and on trend with menswear inspired looks, since, as you can see, they are more boyfriend fit than tailored like I usually prefer! So I guess that now they are my menswear inspired pajama pants.
That’s what happens when you get dressed under the influence of cold meds and with one eye open!
On moi: Camp shirt (similar make), printed pants (newer season style here), mesh sandals (Zara sale for $15!), classic carry-all.
Sometimes, the way you dress is totally parallel to the way you feel and the amount of things you accomplish for the day. It’s this belief that dictates which days I dress up and which I am more prone to sloth around in yoga pants. Today, there’s much to do and little time to do it, so I needed an outfit that was put together and keeps me feeling confident. For me, a sleeveless shell and skirt are the most flattering and comfortable things to wear! I also like a chunky heel for running around because they are just more practical than a teetering stiletto. Normally I’d opt for ankle boots but it is so hot today I couldn’t bare the thought of confining my feet. What’s your favorite thing to wear? What makes you feel confident and comfortable?
On moi: LOFT shirt (old, similar new style here), Forever 21 skirt, Zara heels, Sole Society bag, Gucci sunglasses, TOUS cord bracelets, Nike Fuelband.
Sometimes, even on Mondays, I wake up inspired to get dressed up in colorful and girly clothes. Today was one of those mornings. I cleaned out my closet over the weekend (and listed several new items on Poshmark), and also got a new huge floor mirror (over six feet tall, yippee!) so I was definitely in the mood to play in my closet. This Marc Jacobs shirt was a great eBay score, and paired with shades of blue and red it brought just the right amount of color to an otherwise plain ole’ Monday. eBay is sometimes really amazing, though I don’t have the patience to bid so I only “Buy it Now” on items that are a great deal. This shirt was somewhere in the realm of $15…can’t beat that!
Today was also an iPhone photo day. xx
On moi: Marc Jacobs mixed print shirt, Forever 21 skater skirt, Sole Society sandals, Fossil satchel (on SALE!), H&M sunnies, Sole Society necklace, Trina Turk earrings.
We’ve been enjoying a little breezier temps lately, meaning I actually get to layer clothing without feeling like I might faint from heatstroke. I love seeing my clothes in new ways, and the two tops I have on today have both been staples in my closet for some time, though always worn separate. Last night in my dream I had them layered, so voila, I guess you could say my outfit planning was basically done subconsciously. Paired with strappy red sandals and an easy skater skirt, my look is totally polished, though also totally effortless.
On moi: Ralph Lauren long sleeve top, Ann Taylor sleeveless blouse, Forever 21 skater skirt(old, similar here), Sole Society bag c/o, Sole Society sandals c/o, Gucci sunglasses, Michael Kors watch, Nike fuelband, Trina Turk earrings.
About a month ago I received a pair of Diesel Skinzee jeans, and I have to say, they are definitely at the top of their game when it comes to the perfect fitting pair of jeans. The Skinzee is the latest style by Diesel that promises to keep its shape. This is crucial–I think we can all agree few things are worse than a pair of jeans that get saggy midday. Leave it to Diesel, a top name in premium denim, to create a solution for us picky-skinny-jeans wearers. The Skinzee is available in a wide range of colors, lengths, washes and rises–and once you find the one that’s right for you, you will be hooked! The wash speaks for itself, so I paired it will simple black pieces to keep the attention on the flattering cut and wash.
Have you tried on a pair of Diesel Skinzee jeans?
On moi: Diesel Skinzee jeans courtesy of Vogue, Express blouse, Givenchy sandals (old, similar here), Sole Society hat and bag- on sale for $30!, H&M sunglasses.

It’s no secret that most days I choose to throw on a dress for work, and if you live in a climate like South Florida you probably understand why. It’s just so darn hot and the idea of wearing jeans kind of makes me cringe. We had a psuedo-fall week where temperatures dropped slightly, but as of December we are back into the 80s. Like full blown summer. It’s a little ridiculous but rather than complain I might as well appreciate it and enjoy being outdoors with my dog! I love this dress by Sanctuary, even though it’s a little warm out for long sleeves, I think the modest top makes up for the short length. Also I think it could easily transition into cold weather (it is the fall collection, after all), with a cute biker jacket and some great boots.
On moi: Sanctuary dress (c/o), amazing cutout booties for $37!, Gucci sunnies (c/o, similar), Michael Kors watch, Lulu fringe bag (similar), nail polish in Whitney (my favorite color ever.)
