Month: August 2018

Summer Work Staples

Today’s outfit was thrown together with the hot and humid summer heat in mind — a 3/4-length cotton cardigan that I do not mind sweating profusely in, a silky sleeveless tank that is cool...

Ultra Feminine

Earlier in the year, one of the security guards at work stopped to inquire about my tulle midi skirt. I was disappointed to tell her that it was from a couple seasons ago, therefore...

Summer Whites (+ Stripes)

Today’s fashion inspiration is thanks to Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex at Wimbledon from last month. What is it about British women (she counts now, right? Also looking at you, Victoria Beckham &...

Drop Waist Dress & Long Cardigan

After I mentioned long cardigans paired with dresses in the last post, I realized I haven’t worn that combo myself in awhile. So to the back of my closet I went and out came...

Excuse the Frizz

Can we keep the focus on today’s outfit and not the frizzy mess that is my hair? Scratch that, the focus needs to be on outfits only for the rest of the summer. (There’s...
