Pretty Dress

Magenta Cardigan: Forever21; Dress: Sway; Studded Flats: Steve Madden; Necklace: Forever21
I love this dress from Sway, because of its pretty flow and delicate layered look. 
It's so comfortable and can be worn in a variety of ways. 
I snagged these Steve Madden flats for only $40! 
Who isn't obsessed with studs right now?
I was quite pleased with that purchase.

This look is super lazy, but I'm loving the white ankle socks. Holla MJ!

Put A Bow On It

Shirt: Sway; Shorts: BDG, Urban Outfitters; Loafers: Cole Haan; Clutch: Madewell; Hair Bow: Forever21

Yes, the title is a Portlandia reference...
except I am less of a bird person and more of a bow gal. 
I love my new Cole Haan loafers that I snagged at Nordstrom's anniversary sale. 
They are a great classic shoe that is comfortable and chic. 
One really can't go wrong when wearing a good pair of shoes.

Work Casual

Cardigan: Gap; Pants: UK Style by French Connection; Sears; Sandals: Steven Madden
Just a typical work look. 
These high waisted pants are my work "go-to" look. 
They go with everything! Today I paired them with a coral cardigan from Gap. 
This minimal look is simple, yet chic, and all the pieces were amazing steals!
Win, win.

Hot Summer Afternoon

Lace Hi-Lo Tank: Forever21; Floral High Waisted Shorts: TopShop; Green Flats: Steve Madden; Jade Necklace: Vintage, circa 1970s; Sunnies: H&M; Hoops: Forever21

The last few days have been beautiful in California! 
The weather has been scorching, so I decided to wear this loose fitting lace tank. 
I love its gold button details and peter pan collar-
so girly-but the hem gives it a bit of an edge.
This season, I don't think anyone can go wrong with floral print. 
I snagged these Top Shop shorts for under 20 dollars, 

while traveling in England two summers ago. 
I wanted to give a very special thank you to my friend Katie, who took these pictures for me! 
She was such a great sport and I think we might have found a new career outlet for her:
art direction! 


P.S. Total DC whore, not sorry about it!

Hi-Lo Layers

Dress: Sway; Button Up: Sway; Shoes: Urban Outfitters; Two Toned Leather Clutch: Madewell; White Sunnies: Therapy; Necklace: Stella&Dot

Jackie and I had the pleasure of having our photos taken by our friend Emily,
 who did an amazing job capturing both of our looks. 
I love this hi-lo dress but the length was a little too short on me.
Resolution: Layer on a button up to create an length illusion. 
Plus, I love to be a bit preppy, so this all worked out veryyy well for me!
