I made this skirt back when I was really into DIY-ing skirts. This is the first maxi I’ve ever made and it’s very comfy and breezy. I wore this to work a few weeks ago. It’s a little casual for work, but I can barely function when it’s really hot outside, so the fact that I got dressed at all is kind of a miracle.

Remember a few weeks ago when I said I am terrible at accessorizing? Well, I went ahead and bought a shirt that was pre-accessorized. So, there! HA! This is my kind of top. It’s comfy, breezy, and requires minimal effort to look put-together.
When I picked this up in store, I didn’t realize the back looked like this, but as soon as I tried it on and could see the top bit of my tattoo showing it pretty much sealed the deal that I had to own it.
I needed a pair of heels to wear for a bachelorette party last month and when I tried these on at DSW, I knew I found a winner. They’re so cute and ultra-comfortable. I danced the night away without a single problem. Here I am re-purposing them for work!

I wore this little number around the house and to happy hour last week. I love rompers. I love the way they look (and I love the way this on feels–emphasis on the comfy), but the struggle has been real in my attempt to find the perfect adult-sized onesie. They’re usually just too short for my liking, but when I tried this one on at H&M on a quasi-recent shopping trip with my sisters, I bought it right away, even if it wasn’t technically on my “to buy” list. Can you blame me?
There is nothing better than a breezy cotton dress on a hot, humid summer day. When I got in my car this afternoon, the thermometer gauge said 102°. Gross. On a related note, my new car has a thermometer gauge. And I love it.
My other sticky summer day necessity is a sock bun. You can’t even tell how sweltering it is outside when my hair is up in this contraption. And in case you’re wondering, yes I’m using an actual sock.
I would like to start out this post with a PSA: This dress looks better in person that it does in photographs. There. Now I feel better. Kind of.
I love the idea of this dress and the first time I put it on I really liked it, but the couple times I’ve actually worn it in public, I haven’t really been into it. So, what’s the rule? 3 strikes you’re out? For me it’ll probably be a 3 strikes and you’re relegated to teleworking days sort of arrangement. Do you have any pieces that you want to like, but just can’t seem to find the right way to wear them? Tell me about it in the comments!

I got these corduroys several years ago as a Christmas gift. I liked them at the time, but had no idea how to wear them and they sat in my dresser for a long while. This outfit was inspired by this pin. Can I just say: thank goodness for Pinterest. How on earth did I get dressed before it? Anyway, these really are the most beautiful burgundy/plum color and they’re perfect for fall. I wear them to work, especially as the weather gets cooler (corduroys really keep you cozy!) and I also like wearing them them to holiday dinners with the family!

I was in Nordstrom Rack hunting for the perfect dress to wear to my friends’ wedding and I came across this one. I loved the print and when I looked at the tag and saw that it was marked down to $3.74 I knew I was buying it. Seriously less than $4 for a dress originally priced at $70! Even if I didn’t fit I probably would have bought it on principle alone. Not really, but I’m really happy it does fit!
I wore this to work and hit the polls (notice my I Voted sticker?) on the way home.
This outfit was inspired by this pin. I swapped these leggings from a friend a while ago and was so excited to wear them. I just love the combination of olive green and navy. It feels very fresh and effortless, not to mention perfect for fall!
One of my absolute favorite things about cooler weather is that you can layer your clothes and create much more visually interesting outfits. I’m always hot, so it feels like a special treat to be able to pile on layers and still be comfortable.
