Good Jeans

Head to Toe: Blouse, Marshall's // Jeans, Forever 21 // Pumps, Payless

My apologies for the squinty eyes in these photos. You can't exactly tell, but it was misting pretty hard out (not snow, so I'm not complaining). Ever since a friend of mine pointed it out, denim-on-denim has always reminded me of this photo of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake circa 2000 in head-to-two bluejeans. But, I was inspired by my blogger crush Brooklyn Blonde and decided to make the leap. So, what do you think—chambray success or circa-2007-Briney disaster?

Casual Friday

Friday, March 27, 2015

Head to Toe: Sweater, Loft // Jacket, Continuations Consignments // Jeans, Hollister // Sneakers, Converse // Cap, Polo Ralph Lauren // Bag, Big Buddah
Happy weekend, readers! I am off from work today and sporting this super-casual number for errands and a walk with Monti. After a week of wearing heels, Converse are like a present for my feet. Though spring is slow-coming, it's the little things that make me feel like it's here—be it double-cuffed jeans, gas-station flowers or the teeny tiny crocuses starting to bud up through the soil. Next week will bring a new month, Easter, and freedom from no-shop March! Swoon.

Sunny Side Up

Thursday, March 26, 2015

Head to Toe: Top, Loft // Jacket, Alice & Olivia (thrifted) // Skinnies, Hollister // Booties, Target

Yesterday was mildly warm enough to let the smallest sliver of toe peek out so I was pumped to rock these transitional booties. I am off of work for a long weekend and am trying to focus my energy on letting go and relaxing (seems odd that this requires work, I know). When I have extra downtime, I do enjoy cooking over takeout, and lucky for me I now have two friends with food blogs. I've already introduced you to Alexis' blog Cheese & Weim, but let me share Whiskey & Aprons with you, a new blog written by my dear friend, Meg. She's currently taking on the 21 Day Fix, so all of her recipes are not only delicious, but health conscious. Go check those ladies out! Happy Friday, fashionistas.

Transition Time

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Head to Toe: Blouse, Marshall's // Sweater, Continuations Consignments // Jacket, Wilson // Skinnies, J. Crew // Neclkace, Forever 21 // Bag, Big Buddah

I'm herby declaring the dark days of winter least in my wardrobe. I decided to brighten things up for Tuesday by piling on layers that appear light but are cold-weather appropriate. The suede jacket is a hand-me-down score from my bestie, Liz. I also got a beaded couture skirt gifted secondhand from a coworker last week, and both pieces have helped ease the pain of no-shop March (which is in it's last week, yippee!). That, combined with my tax refund, have my bank account feeling a littler healthier, so my goal is to keep cutting back even when the month rolls over—but don't quote me.

Pre-Spring Staples

Thursday, March 19, 2015

Head to Toe: Sweater, Zara // Jeans, Continuations Consignments // Booties, Target // Neclace, Francesca's

Okay, like I said, sweater + skinnie jeans is about all that I can muster these days. This seemed like the only go-to for an industry trade show yesterday which requires comfort above anything. I'm pretty pumped it's already the weekend but not as pumped for the snow on its way this afternoon. And, it's officially the first day of spring! Happy Friday, fashionistas. 

Just Plummy

Friday, March 13, 2015

Head to Toe: Blouse and boots, Zara // Blazer and skinnies, Marshall's // Scarf, American Eagle

Hooray for Friday, fashionistas. It was a bit windy today so I am still layering, but check out what I am standing on...Yes, that's pavement! I needed an outfit that wasn't overly dressy for Friday but formal enough for a meeting and fun for post-work happy hour. I'm open to criticism, but I think this fits the bill. It was a chockful week for me, so nothing sounds better than melted snow, drinks with friends and of course, the weekend. Cheers!

Shades of Gray

Thursday, March 12, 2015

Head to Toe: Sweater, Zara // Jeans, J Brand // Booties, Target

Apologies for the terrible movie reference in the title, but I haven't had my coffee yet today, and the creativity bank is a little low. Plus it seemed fitting enough since I'm looking particularly moody in this black-and-gray number. I'm just not ready to dive into the spring pastels yet. I've been able to ditch some of the layers-on-layers, but skinnies + sweater + booties has been about the formula these days. What's your go-to transitional outfit?
