Friend Dates


If you know me, you know that I have a ridiculous amount of useless pop culture knowledge in my head so when I found out about this Troop Beverly Hills sweatshirt, I knew I needed it.  I added a Who What Wear Collection polka dotted shirt, skinny jeans, and my trusty Stan Smith Adidas Originals and was good to go.  It felt a little 80s/90s but updated in a good way.


Later in the day, I headed to a local coffee shop to meet up with my bestie, Joi.  She gave me the cutest book about best friends.  We are so excited about what is in store for us in 2017!  We’ve got big plans  and I’m so happy to be making them with her by my side.

Flower Power



This killer dress is back again.  I just love this overall print.  A floral print in winter is such a lovely change from the basic neutrals I tend to wear, especially during the winter months.  This time around I paired the dress with tights and black heels which was definitely needed as it was super cold when I took these photos.

There’s something about this outfit that makes me long for Jordan Catalano to notice me.  Slip dresses were all the rage when I was in high school and this is my updated version of what I wore back then.  My elevated look is part grunge band, part Olsen twin with the addition of an oversize cardigan.  Dress and cardi are from Who What Wear Collection and the mock turtle is from ASOS.

Velvet.  It is a reminder of my childhood and they say everything eventually comes back in style. Velvet is back in a big way, my friends.  I’m pretty much obsessed with velvet at the moment and this mock turtleneck from Eloquii is no exception.  Throw in a fun pair of gold earrings and we have a winning combination.  Look for this little love and another velvet gem to make many appearances this winter!

Black Friday


I know you are thinking this post is a little late, and you are correct, but this is what I wore on Black Friday. This year my Black Friday consisted of hanging out with my mom, binge watching the new Gilmore Girls episodes, eating leftovers, and making a couple of purchases online.  I was relaxed and happy.  Couldn’t be more thankful.

Chasing Pavement


From the moment I saw this dress it was love at first sight.  I love the dark floral pattern and the cut of the dress is great for me.  I wish it were a tad shorter, down side to being a Shorty McShortShort, but everything else is perfect.  I’ve already worn it two different ways and I’m looking forward to figuring out other ways to style it.  Plus, my students told me I looked like Adele all day and any day that someone compares me to Adele is a good day in my book.

november-2016-005Sometimes, when I’m tired, I just have to break out the #basic wardrobe.  This picture was taken right before Thanksgiving break.  And I was tired.  TIRED.  So a cozy cardi, leggings, and my trusty booties were just the thing I needed. Do you have a favorite cozy basic item?

Finally, FINALLY, fall has fallen.  I’ve been waiting impatiently for the time of sweaters and scarves and it seems like the time has arrived.  I paired this buffalo check flannel with a pleather pleated skirt to welcome in the cooler weather.  Nothing says fall more than a good plaid flannel, amirite? And even though I purchased this skirt about a year ago, it is still right on trend-pleats, pleather, and midi length.

Bomb(er)s Away!


So, bomber jackets have been having a moment.  They’ve had quite a bit of popularity for at least a season or two now and I finally caved this summer when I purchased this duster length bomber jacket.  It was originally purchased with some matching track pants but they were too big and long so I decided to just keep this bomber.  I paired it with some leggings and a tank for a streamlined casual look here.  I could see this maybe being elevated with a pair of heels. Have you hopped on the bomber train?
