Short Shorts

I love these shorts. Even though they tend to wrinkle at the slightest movement I still love wearing them. The high waist is super flattering and the overall silhouette is much more unique than normal shorts. I just have to invest in a hand steamer to wear these long term.

Spring has sprung

I realize I have been trying to say ‘spring is here’ basically since January. I think it is finally safe to say that spring has officially arrived. I really hope so, Hannah is growing out of all of her coats and I am ready for her to wear her cute summer things! Is that too much to ask? I mean her little summer rompers are just too adorable to be sitting in the closet. Flats: J.Crew factory (similar) | Skirt: Zara (old, but love this) | Top: Express: Similar, but denim | Necklace: Manic Trout | Hat: Target (similar — and maybe […]

Richmond has some pretty awesome murals. They are all over the city and they are all so beautiful. The murals definitely adds some really unique charm to the town. And it makes location scouting for the blog a thousand times easier. 🙂 Also, I am so excited to share that I just signed on to write for Mode, a fun blogging network.

TRANSITIONAL WARDROBE

5 Transitional Pieces You Need in your wardrobe

I think Spring is the hardest season to dress for. The weather is never quite warm enough to wear cute sundresses and sandals, but that is all that stores seem to be selling. The key is to find great transitional pieces that you can layer over lightweight spring clothes so you don’t freeze to death while you’re waiting for it get truly warm. A lightweight sweater: J.Crew Factory does great lightweight sweaters. If you get a good one you can wear it with almost anything. I recommend buying one in grey or navy blue. Rain Boots: Transitional seasons are always rainy. Don’t ruin […]

Wearing a dress as a top

I don’t usually wear bodycon dresses in my daily life. They are great for special occasions, but tossing on a super form-fitting frock isn’t really for me. Instead of leaving them sitting all sad and neglected in my closet, I wear them as tops. Just tuck up the bottom hem a bit then tuck the dress into your jeans. Bam! You’ve got yourself a cute tee. Note: This method does not work for bodycon dresses knee length or longer. You will end up with a weird bulge around your waist which wouldn’t be so good. Also, I will be sharing […]

Lady in Lace

I have a weakness for black dresses and this one is no exception. The lace overlay is perfect for transitioning from winter to spring. Can I also complain about felt and wool hats for a moment? They are so cute, but they literally attract every piece of dust and lint they can find! It’s so annoying. I mean, I still love this hat, I just wish it was more dust resistant.

Coffee Break

Let’s face it, work clothes can be boring. This is especially true when you work in a corporate setting or have a job working for the government. It is easy to fall into a black suit rut.

I have teamed up with Banana Republic to give you the most wearable work outfit ever. These three pieces can be mixed and matched for any work occasion from business meetings with top execs to casual Friday happy hours. This look in particular is more casual […]

Crabby Casual

  I like to use my blog as a place to play dress up. But the reality is, life is not all five inch heels and tulle skirts. It is a lot of flats and sweaters and comfortable clothes that I can move freely in. This outfit is more like what I would wear day-to-day. It’s easy, cute, and it hides baby drool well. Hannah is going through an extra sticky phase. So I need my attire to work really hard to disguise random baby food stains. Shoes: Brooks Brothers | Pants: J. Crew | Sweater: J. Crew Factory (love this) | Jacket: […]
