I’m back (and with a new do)! I went on a road trip vacation to Canada and it was incredibly fun. I had all these plans to take lots of pictures and blog the whole thing but two things got in the way. 1- The place I stayed did not have wifi and 2- It is a pain in the bum to carry around a big camera all day and we stayed out pretty late at night.

These photos are from the very beginning of my trip when we went to an antique car show. I put this outfit together because I was loving all the geometric shapes and how they looked together. I was a bit dressed up for the event BUT as Oscar Wilde said, “You can never be overdressed or undereducated.”

Maxi- Francesca’s (my favorite boutique)

Necklace- Forever 21

Wedges- Steve Madden

Bag- ALDO

3 Maine Weekend Getaway Outfits

I spent this past weekend at my boyfriend’s family lake house. I was beautiful and wonderful and relaxing.

We went on a hike!

I clearly can’t wait to get into the water!

This was an awesome weekend and I’m so sad it’s over! Here are some of the outfits I wore on my weekend getaway. 1-3: Cutout shoulder sweater and statement necklace. This was perfect for the one rainy day we had. We went out for lunch and a movie. (I was not a Planet of the Apes fan but my boyfriend loved it.) 4-6: My jacket and leggings are both Lululemon. I was covered up enough to keep the bugs out but my skin was still able to breathe. Lulu is the only brand I’ve found which can make this possible. And finally 7-9: This is my favorite coverup dress. I’ve had it for a few years (from Forever 21) and I’m still in love with the colors and patterns in it. But I still couldn’t wait to take it off and jump into the water!

 

I hope you enjoyed my 3 getaway looks! Follow for more!

I’ve been a bit obsessed with palazzo pants lately… They’re refreshing compared to the jeggings I’m used to squeezing myself into! I got this pair at Francesca’s (also a recent love) but I did have a bit of trouble styling them at first. I’m the type of person who likes to stick to loose on top, tight on bottom or vice versa. But with these super wide leg pants, I felt like a fitted top was almost too off-setting. So, I picked a looser one, topped it with some gold accessories to go with the medallion print and grabbed a coral bag for some summer color. Hope you like the look! Follow for more!

P.S. I admit… the pants are a bit long on me. This happens a lot being 5’2″. But does no one else tell themselves, “No need to hem it. Now I can wear it with flats OR heels!” Just me?

 

 

 

LBD for Summer!

So, I had an important event at work and we were told to wear all black clothing… necklaces don’t count as clothing right?!?

Impatiently waiting for my chai to be ready…..

I love a good little black dress, but for summer it needed some spicing up. I got this hot pink necklace at Francesca’s which I am actually posing in front of in the first picture! I also went with Tiffany Case by OPI for nails which is all sparkles and perfect for summer. These little pops of color make all the difference in making a look feel new. I work in a creative environment so this dress is perfectly acceptable to wear but, if this isn’t quite work appropriate for your office, the look is also perfect for a cocktail party or a night out with friends!
