The Crop Top

Truthfully, I bought this white cut-out lace top on Asos thinking it was regular length. Admittedly, I'm a little scared of crop tops - I somehow never gave into the trend. But after trying out this top with higher waist skirts and pants, I don't know what I was afraid of! I love the lengthening look it gives my legs. Maybe it was mean to be that Asos sent me a too short top?

Fall Cardigan

Good morning friends!

I must have underestimate the use of the cardigan in my wardrobe because I rarely ever wear them. The color of this Old Navy cardigan is what drew me to it - the deep burgundy color is gorgeous! I can already find so many uses for it - I'll never look down on a cardigan again!

Navy Obsession

What's this? I'm in navy again? And I'm wearing the same blazer as my last post? Why yes, that's because I'm pretty much obsessed with it. How perfect is it over this dress - I feel like these two pieces were meant for each other! The weather has been unpredictable lately, so I'm trying to enjoy those last warm days in bare legs until it's tights season!

All in Navy

I have to admit I've avoided the color navy in my wardrobe, mostly because a lot of my wardrobe is black. But when I saw this J Crew schoolboy blazer on super sale ($60!) in navy, I kept thinking of different ways I could wear it - with denim and a white tee, with most of the skirts I own, with dresses... and the list went on! Actually, I'm even wearing it today, the second time this week. Apparently, it's coming in pretty handy!

As you may know, I'm getting married next year, and I'm happy to say that this past weekend, I found my wedding dress! I won't say much about it other than it's very me, and if you've been reading this blog for a bit, you can probably guess how it will look.

Hope you're all having a good week!

Comfort with Stripes


Old Navy Striped Dress, Gap Sandals, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, Forever 21 Necklace, Joe Fresh Sunnies

Excuse the radio silence on my end. While I planned to have a lot more posts up this week, my fiance and I had to deal with a medical emergency in the family, and it's been exhausting. My fiance's dad fell ill on Wednesday (he is never sick) and being elderly, we thought it best to drive down to see him (he lives 1h away). Sure enough, after a visit to the doctor, we found out he needed a pacemaker. We were all surprised - at 89, he still splits his own wood. They didn't even have any record of him at the hospital - he had never been! So between the back and forth from his place to here, I haven't had much time to do anything.

With that out of the way, I have to say this little striped Old Navy dress has been a staple in my closet lately. Super comfortable, it's so easy to throw a blazer or jean jacket on top. Not that I want to think too much about tight season, but I'm sure it will look great with tights too.

Hope you're all have a good week, and hopefully I'll have more to post next week!

Linking up with Style Elixir!

Tent Dress


Asos Dress, Michael Kors Pumps, Danier Clutch, Forever 21 Bangle, Banana Republic Necklace, Franco Sarto Sunnies 

I meant to post some ideas on what to wear to a wedding this summer, but it seems summer has gone by without me getting a chance to. Where did the time go?! Truthfully, I went to one wedding this summer, and this isn't even what I wore. However, I think an easy breezy tent dress is perfect for that type of occasion - just add a gold clutch to any LBD and you're ready to go!

Real Casual

Some days, I crave a good casual look. Jeans, a t-shirt and minimal jewelry. Heels are thrown in for good measure, but truthfully, since comfort is key, I'm usually in sandals.
