Little Red Bandana

I gave myself 10 minutes max to do my hair this morning. If I couldn’t figure out how to tie the bandana into a cute headband, I would resort to tying it around my...

Part II – Wide Leg Cropped Pants

As promised, today’s post features a semi tucked-in sweater (now $25) with wide leg cropped pants (now $32). I loved how this outfit turned out, with the yellow pants being the main attraction against...

Accessorizing a T-Shirt Dress

There are so many cute ways to wear a scarf. The simplest might just be draping it over the shoulders. It doesn’t add warmth (not necessary this time of year anyway), but it does...

Navy Knit Dress & Black Leather Jacket

Am I the only one who thinks we pretty much went from winter straight to summer? I’m happily pretending it’s still spring… and will continue to wear jackets until it becomes unbearably hot (or...

Wide Leg Cropped Pants – TBMD

The previous few years I was all about wide leg pants that skimmed the floor (examples: one, two, three). I love how comfortable these pants were and how tall I looked even with flats...

2 Ways – Graphic Tee & Midi Skirt

I just ruined my average of going a year between ways to wear posts with this back-to-back post. This is what happens when I’m on a roll. Today’s post shows the power of accessories....

Year-Round in Red Rain Boots

Thanks to Helen’s comment, I realized an entire year has passed since I’ve done a ways to wear post. It’s been raining most of this week, so I thought it fitting to compile a...

Prim & Proper – TBMD

I call this my “prim and proper” outfit — a modern take on a conservative look for the office. Ladies who I usually pass in the hallways with a quick “Hey!” stopped me to...

Periwinkle Blue

Stripes, oh how I love thee. It’s a pattern that suits any occasion — work, dressy, weekends, just to name a few, and one that I can’t get enough of. Oh, periwinkle blue? Don’t...

Soft Pink & Seersucker Blue

Today’s outfit felt familiar to me. After digging through archived posts, not only do I wear the pink + blue combination often, there were two prior outfits (here, here) that involved this exact striped...

Black & White in an Eyelash Pencil Skirt

Today’s outfit looks boring at first glance. Black and white? It’s only a step up from all black, imo. Look closer though… the colors may not draw attention, but the textures sure should. A...

Spring Classics (+ Kefee heel inserts)

Around this time last year, I switched jobs to one where I took the Metro every day. I wore heels perhaps 3 times max the few months I was there before an unexpected opportunity...

Officially Summer – TBMD

Heatwave or not, summer has officially arrived! It’s been particularly challenging this year because the combination of humidity and allergies has been kicking my butt. I do what I can to stay comfortable, like...

An Afternoon Tea Outing – TBMD

I went with some friends for afternoon tea at the Ritz Carlton in Tysons recently. I may have been a tad overdressed (we decided on cocktail attire, just because), but I was oh-so-comfortable while...

Sunshine After the Rain

I imagine if I were to ever visit somewhere cold and rainy (Scotland?), this is what I would look like. Colorful (and packable) jacket amidst the dreary backdrop? Cozy scarf? Rain boots? Oversized and...
