• Sunday Shopping – Stores I Browse for Preppy Looks

    I find it hard to pinpoint my style. It honestly depends on how I’m feeling that day and what influences I’ve recently had. If I’m watching a certain show and I’m digging their style, I’ll start to put together outfits that fit that theme for a couple weeks until I’m influenced by something else. But, I always seem to gravitate back to the classic style that is almost timeless. An aspect of this style is preppiness. I have my go-to stores for preppy, classic styles. I’ve picked a few pieces from some of these stores that I would buy and would fit into my idea of preppiness. Of course: I…

  • Sunday Shopping – My Search for Americorp Uniform Items.

    I will be doing a year with Americorp’s City Year starting in a few weeks. Because we are working in schools, there seems to be a fairly strict dress code and uniform. In order to comply, I will be wearing a City Year polo and black pants and shoes. I have a pair of black pants but wanted to stock up on a few more so that I’m not constantly doing laundry or wearing dirty clothes. Loft is one of my FAVORITE places to shop for pants because I’m fairly short and it’s always so difficult for me to find pants that fits correctly. But, their trousers always fit me…

  • Styling Saturday: Drab to Fab

    This old O’Neill dress is definitely a favorite of mine although it always reminds me to order a size down with O’Neill. Despite its large size, it’s super comfortable yet feminine. If I were on the go, it would hold up on its own with a simple pair of flipflops. But, to make it go from drab to fab and make it an outfit, I added a few styling pieces. O’Neill – As this dress is old, I found a super similar one. As a reminder, I would try a size down. O’Neill’s clothes tend to run a little large. Urban Outfitters – Firstly, because it’s a little larger on me, I…

  • Daydreaming Vacation Outfits Part II

    Take a look at the first half here. Because I’m planning on two outfits a day, for the second half of VK, I’m going to try to repeat as many pieces as I can. Day 5: Paddle Boarding and Kayaking, Mini Gulf, Casual Dinner at Home Paddle Boarding Outfit Coverup / Bikini Top / Bikini Bottom / Sandals I love this sporty swimsuit and army green is pretty much my favorite color to wear. Day Outfit Headband / Romper / Tretorns How gorgeous is this headband?!?! I built this outfit around the headband. The rest of the ensemble needed to be simple to draw attention to the hair accessory. No need to add another outfit onto the…

  • Daydreaming Vacation Outfits Part I

    These past few days, I’ve been dreaming about the beach vacation my family and I go on every year. One of my favorite parts about getting ready to go is planning out my outfits. Despite not knowing if we’ll be able to go this summer, I’ve started looking around for some fun VK clothes. When I’m shopping for summer vacation outfits, I typically hit up three places to get the main things: Free People, Anthropologie, and Madewell. We usually do something fun and active during the day and then do a nice dinner at night. So, I have two outfits planned for each day. Day 1: The Drive, Lunch, Grocery…

  • Day Nine: Working From Home

    As it does, the weather has been bouncing around so much lately. For times like these, I like to pull some ideas from my post, Versatile Products. But, today I definitely needed to dress for much warmer temperatures than I have lately. Dress: Macy’s Sunglasses:Ray Ban Shoes: Old Tretorns (Tretorns) This dress is literally $13.00 right now. I originally found it on Nordstrom Rack but they didn’t have my size. I was lucky enough to find it at Macy’s. I’m wearing a size small. I also picked up a couple of trenches because they were SO on sale and a trench is perpetually on my shopping list (Ralph Lauren/ Ralph Lauren). My Tretorns…

  • Day Seven: Working From Home

    I decided to wear something other than leggings today. But, I still kept it comfortable. Blouse: Banana Republic Jumpsuit: ASOS Shoes: Rothy’s This ASOS jumpsuit is SUPER stretchy and flowy. I’m definitely excited to wear it when the weather gets warmer with some sandals and without the shirt underneath. It even made it onto my Spring Lookahead. I just bought my first pair of Rothy’s and I’ve definitely fallen in love, like many others. I decided to go with the camo to keep it a little trendy. But, I love the point because of the classic shape. They’re super flexible although the soles don’t have a huge amount of support. But,…

  • Day Six: Working From Home

    It is SUPER chilly today so I’m pulling out my old Winter pieces. The dreariness outside makes me feel even colder L. But, this was honestly an outfit I just threw on right before I went downstairs. I normally set out my clothes the night before. But, I had no motivation last night. So, I went with what I was feeling, which was cold and in need of a blanket wrapped around my body. Everything in this outfit has been in my closet for quite some time. So, I’ve listed a couple similars for each piece. Turtleneck: Nordstrom (Nordstrom Rack) Poncho: ASOS (Lulus/ Anthropologie) Leggings: Target Boots: Old Dr. Scholl’s (Boden) I…

  • Day Five: Working From Home

    Day Five is a comfy outfit as well. I’ve begun mostly working in my bed all day and I don’t think that I could sit in it in anything uncomfortable with other options just steps away from me. Again, I made an outfit around a pair of my MANY black leggings. Blouse: Banana Republic Poncho: Tuckernuck Sweater Poncho Leggings: Old Target Shoes: Taryn Rose Necklace: Urban Outfitters This is such a comfy, cozy outfit (even though it looks fairly put together). Popping a collar is a way that I love to add a touch of elegance to a simple outfit. The Tuckernuck sweater poncho is super soft and heavy. It’s…

  • Day Four: Working from Home

    I decided to put on pants today. But, I went with my COMFIEST pants. I watched Just Go With It last night and was inspired by Jennifer Aniston’s casual wardrobe. I love the look for boyfriend pants with a more feminine top, such as this V-neck sweater. Everything in my outfit have been staples in my closet for quite some time now. But, I tried to track down some similars. Sweater: Old Target (Similar/ Similar) Pants: Gap Khakis(Similar) Belt: Old Rebecca Minkoff (Similar/ Similar) Shoes: Target Accessories: Kate Spade Knot Bracelet/ Old Kate Spade Chain Bracelet (Similar) / Kate Spade Initial Necklace / Fitbit Wrap Band This is such a soft and cozy sweater.…
