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...

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...

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....

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 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...

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...

Summer Work Style in a Linen Sheath Dress

I’ve styled this dress two ways thus far — paired with a wide belt the first time, then now with a skinny belt. You’d think the dress came belt-less (or perhaps just ugly) given...

A Makeshift Jumpsuit for the Office

Rompers and jumpsuits have been everywhere the last few seasons. Though I’ve never felt the urge to jump on the bandwagon for the simple reason that it’s not the most practical when nature calls...

Knotted Blouse & Knit Skirt

I equally love and hate today’s outfit. I don’t particularly care for the suede pumps, aside from the bow. The color and material seem harsh for the summer. So why did I even bother?!...

Wear to Work: Summer Whites

I swear it’s completely unintentional that every time I wear this particular white blazer, I gravitate towards this same spot for photo ops (example 1, example 2). Perhaps my subconscious loves the way white...

Double the Animal Spots

As promised, I finally decided to style this leopard skirt with something other than a black sweater (!) I felt a polo top was the conservative yin to the wild leopard yang of the...

Business Casual: Blazer & Wrap Skirt

With skirts that fall past the knee, I typically try to balance out the proportions by wearing a top that is tucked in (see exhibits: one, two, three, four). For today’s outfit, I experimented...

A Classic in Stripes & Wide Leg Pants

I got 4 photos in (translation: one pose with variations of the head tilt) before my camera battery died. D’oh! So sharing 2 photos today is probably overkill, but what the hell… my profile...

Black Rainbow Multi Tweed – TBMD

I’d estimate most outfits of mine to look better in real life than captured in photos. Today’s is one of the rare exceptions. Doesn’t the tweed dress look blue-ish? Up close and in real...

Modern Classics

Rounding out the month of April on a high note! 4 posts in the last week, with the majority featuring one of my favorite jackets ever. I don’t know how much longer this in-between...

Business Casual: Graphic Tee – TBMD

Can a graphic tee ever be work appropriate? Why yes, let me point you to the example that is today’s outfit. A pencil skirt will always work in office environments. For the top half,...

Pretty in Pleats – TBMD

I’m so, so behind on blogging it’s not even funny. Thank you all who are still hanging around here willing to put up with my sporadic, weekly-at-best posts. A recurring theme every spring seems...
