First peplum


I tried out my first experiment with peplum and paired it with cuffed jeans and flats.

Day dresses


I love day dresses. They’re the perfect outfit to throw on when you really don’t want to think about putting together an outfit. First up is my tried and true Bailey44 dress (which started my Bailey44 obsession). I paired it with nude booties and a gold necklace.

Next up is my new day dress from Splendid, paired with my new animal print flats.

Leggings and Skulls


I love skulls, and have been eyeing an Alexander McQueen scarf for years. Eventually I may determine to make the splurge, but for now, I found this perfect substitute at Nordstrom BP.


I paired my scarf with a purple tunic top, grey tank layered underneath, leggings, and flats. I accessorized further with a set of silver bracelets.

Dressin’ it up style catch-up

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a chance to blog, but luckily I’ve still been snapping a few outfit shots. Here’s a catch-up of my more work-related outfits.

I love sheath dresses. They’re so versatile, and can easily be dressed up or down. I paired this simple black sheath with a leopard print scarf and black heels.

I posted about my yellow bubble necklace here, and I decided to wear my black one to work with a blazer. Ankle pants, heels, and a blazer dress up a simple white tee.

I love pink and was so upset when my hot pink J Crew skirt ripped, that I was lucky to find this option at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Can’t wait to pair it with black tights for fall!

Bubble necklace take 2! This time I dressed up my chambray shirt with a black pencil skirt, heels, and my black bubble necklace.

I was ridiculously sad about these shoes. I wore them for one day/night, and the soles started falling apart! Super surprising for Cole Haans! Luckily, they were purchased at Nordstrom, so I was able to return them.

Well, there you have it! 5 work outfits for catch-up!

Warmer weather is (slowly) coming to Seattle, and there are some great sales right now. I picked up two pairs of these sateen cropped pants from Banana Republic in tan and grey, for 30% off, and then an additional 30% off the sale price.

Since we went golfing after work on Friday, pairing the grey pair with a simple white top was perfect. I was able to wear leopard flats and a statement necklace to work, and then take off the necklace and put on my golf shoes for golfing.

Elephants and Sparkly Shoes


Elephants are pretty awesome. I don’t know if it’s just because their name starts with “E,” but they’ve been my favorite animal since I was a little kid. When I was shopping with my sister in LA at Brandy Melville, I saw this elephant shirt and knew I had to have it.

I tried the elephant shirt with my striped blazer and didn’t love the combo (the lengths were throwing me off), so I kept it casual again and paired it with a white jersey knit cardigan, skinny jeans, my sparkly flats, and a bold necklace.
