The Basics

I’ve had this endless shirt for a while, but mostly wear it with leggings and sneakers whenever I travel. Most comfortable outfit ever! I’ve also worn it with sweats, a vest, and hat to walk my dog to run quick errands. Back when I worked in a more business casual environment I would only wear a button up, like this, with slacks or a skirt. Now I realize just how versatile a basic piece like this can be.

How do you normally style a button up?

Military Jacket

ABS by Allen Schwartz Knit Open Blazer

Military jackets aren’t something that people usually think of as feminine. But for today’s blog post I’m putting a feminine twist to the jacket by pairing it with a full midi skirt.

Changes

Minneapolis got me good this past week. One day it was nice enough to wear a sleeveless dress, and the next day it starts to snow — WHAT THE WHAT!?! As a new Minnesotan, (is that even a word?) I’m starting to realize these are the types of weather changes I will have to get used to. Le sigh, so much for putting away all my scarfs and gloves for the season.

Not many people are a fan of the whole wearing a dress with jeans thing, I AM (obviously), but it isn’t for everyone. I think I’m more drawn to mixing the two because it gives me a chance to get more wear out of my clothes, AND it’s easier to take your kiddo out, walk the dog, carry groceries, etc., when you don’t have to worry about a gust of wind showing everyone your panties (GASP!).

In other news, these photos were taken a day before a snow storm hit Minne (sad face). Le sigh, so much for Spring.

Tracks

I’ve been on a sneaker kick lately. I can’t help it, they’re just so much more comfortable to run around in than boots/booties. AND with all the new styles and colors available they have become a fun addition to my outfit. In the past I only wore my sneakers to the gym, but now it’s a wardrobe staple. I think the sneaker appeal stems from the weekend ritual of: chasing a kid, running errands, and walking my pup. I can’t realistically wear anything else without my feet being sore.

Has anyone else been living in sneaks?

H&M Cupro Dress

H&M Cupro Dress

When the dress you’re sort of interested in is sold out in store, does it mean it’s time to give up? Or do you move your search online?
I’m more of the later kind — I mean it can’t hurt to check. When I then saw that said dress was almost sold out and the only size available ones were in my size, of course I took that as a divine sign that I must get this dress. Sometimes I’m a bit sketchy about buying things online because unfortunately I don’t have the same body types as the models. So it was to my delight that when the dress came in the mail and I tried it on, it fit so perfectly. I just love when things work out like that!

Cutouts

March 12, 2015

TopShop Cut-Out Midi Bodycon Dress

Last Friday I stopped Topshop during my lunch break. The original plan was to get a party dress for an event I had planned to go to that night, but unfortunately I didn’t find any that fit the bill. Of course, it being Topshop, there was no way I had a strong enough will to leave empty handed. No matter how much I told myself to stay the course and look only for formal dresses, my eyes kept wandering and found other goodies in the store to try on, like this gorgeous cut-out mid bodycon dress. I love the simplicity of the dress, which will make it easy to layer and mix and match with other pieces I already own. The addition of the cutout to the dress gives it the perfect amount of interest that it can hold up on its own.

I must admit, when I first got the dress I felt pretty foolish. Not only did I get distracted and bought something I don’t need, I didn’t think I would be able to wear the dress for at least another month. Last week was still considerably cold in NYC, and it even snowed one of the days. Since I’m short, I cant really wear tights with this dress because it will “peek” through the cutouts.
As it turns out I got it just at the perfect time since the weather turned warmer on the weekend, giving me a chance to wear the dress to brunch sans tights. I just love when things work out like that.
