That One Predictable Outfit – TBMD

I’m nothing if not predictable. The obvious is the blazer and girlfriend jeans combo that is on the verge of uniform territory. But wait! I almost always like to mix in something “new” (Bottega...

All The Menswear – TBMD

Fall has since come and gone, but I’m determined to share the few outfits that I did snap during the last few weeks before diving into seasonable winter looks. Up first is a menswear-inspired...

Let’s Go Nats!

What’s my excuse for the latest mini-blogging hiatus? I’ve been completely immersed in the Nats’ post-season run the last few weeks. Staying up late to catch games in their entirety plus all the post-game...

More Cognac, Please

A month ago, I wore this top and skirt combo with “summer” accessories. As the seasons change, so do the accessories. I probably went a bit overboard piling on all the cognac colors from...

Fall.

Usually by this time of the year, I would have already jumped the gun and busted out my fall jackets. Multiple times. Sweating just a tad in the early stages of fall while sipping...

Back to Basics

Never in my life have I worn a pair of jeans that fit perfectly off the rack without any (faux or real) alterations whatsoever. Until today! Boyfriend jeans don’t count because they’re meant to...

Weekend Vibes in a Wicker Basket

As summer is winding down around us, I’m trying to not get ahead of myself. Just living in the moment, enjoying wearing summer pieces a few last times, sipping iced cold drinks, and even...

Stripes, Poms, and Twilly-Tied

Details are what makes an outfit fun. The striped top and cap-toe shoes are bold and bright. Upon closer inspection, what I really love are the pom poms and twilly scarf. The pom poms...

An Ode to My Favorite Designer of 2019

A quick preface before diving into today’s post: there will be lots of fangirling ahead. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I have a handful of favorite brands that I constantly browse for new...

Blue & Orange Accents – TBMD

The longer I stare at today’s outfit, the more I’m getting flight attendant vibes. The brooch can be mistaken for an airline pin. The knotted cardigan sweater taking the place of a neck scarf....

White Sneakers – TBMD

Hello again! I took a mini hiatus to spend time with family, but am now back on the wagon with blogging. Hopefully I can keep it up without too many work distractions 😉 Today’s...

Draped in a Summer Scarf

Up until today, I’ve lived by the motto: scarves in the winter are for warmth; scarves in the summer are purely decorative. Boy, was I wrong. I literally discovered Starbucks’ London Fog Tea Latte...

Ivory Linen & Cognac Brown

Third time’s the charm as I finally wore this linen sheath dress as it was intended — with the accompanying belt. (See previous outfits here, here). I gotta say, the designers were onto something....

A (Slightly) Updated Uniform

Casual but slightly dressed up outfits are my forte. I’m a tomboy at heart, and as I’ve matured over the years, I’ve found that adding adult touches (aka heels) is an easy way to...

Jogger-Like

The last outfit was quintessentially “me” in my element. In contrast, today’s is the complete antithesis. Everything from head to toe was an experiment that… I’m not sure I’ll be repeating. I wanted to...

A Touch of Gold – TBMD

I had the most fun I’ve had in awhile playing around with this outfit. There were just so many opportunities to mix and match to create completely different outfits (small details matter!), that it...

Scallop Hems – TBMD

I’ve previously mentioned styling struggles when it comes to this top. It took trial and error to find pants that worked with the tad-too-short-top without proportions looking off. To nobody’s surprise except mine, I...

A Summer Sweater – TBMD

Continuing the sleeveless trend that I’ve been sporting this summer (exhibits: A, B), today’s outfit is probably more late-summer appropriate as we transition into fall. I happen to snag this sleeveless tunic on super...

Re-visiting an Old Favorite

One of my most (if not the top) pinned outfit on Pinterest is this gray/black/leopard outfit from 4 years! ago. It’s a work classic for a reason, given the items can be found in...

Summer Work Style: Heatwave Edition

I’m embracing this recent heatwave by stepping out of my comfort zone completely. Talk about lots of skin baring (for me!) in a sleeveless top and cropped pants. I chose thin fabrics that are...

A Chanel-esque Tweed Blazer – TBMD

When you’re having a great hair day (trust me, this is a rarity for me, and my standards are so very low), it’s okay if the outfit isn’t 100% on point. The tweed blazer...
