Happy Monday! Today’s outfit is a simple work outfit. I like sleeveless dresses like this one for summer because they’re cool enough to wear on a hot day to work, and if you throw on a nice cardi or blazer when you get there, you’ll keep the office chill at bay. I often wear a… View Article

I’m curious–do you notice anything subtly different about me? Hint: check the hair. Do you see it? It’s most obvious in the picture below. I’ve decided to part my hair down the middle. After looking around at other bloggers, friends, and poking through fashion trends I realized that my old side part was starting to… View Article

I’ll never tire of this bun clutch. Buns are the best, even in owl form. This spring Kate Spade was bought by Coach for 2.4 billion dollars. This makes me nervous–I’m so-so on coach. In general I find them to be a bit boring as a brand, saturating the market with generic, logo-printed handbags. I’m… View Article

Hands down, my favorite place to look for colorful maxi dresses is Nordstrom Rack. I scored some stellar Felicity and Coco maxis there this past winter for my trip to Hawaii, and I recently stopped in over my lunch break and found this fun Maggy London dress. I’m a big fan of Maggy London’s colorful,… View Article

One of my favorite tank tops, a cornerstone of my summer capsule wardrobe, has a hole in it. Sadness. This week I went on a quest to replace it.

The Perfect Tank Top

Season: Summer

One of my favorite tank tops, a cornerstone of my summer capsule wardrobe, has a hole in it. Sadness. This week I went on a quest to replace it. After exhausting my usual stores, an alternate popped into my head: Anthropologie.

Anthropologie is the kind of store I never gave much thought to after the first time I walked in and saw the outrageous price tags. Thankfully, my sensibilities have changed. Now that I'm working on a capsule wardrobe of quality items meant to last, Anthropologie is right up my alley.

When I built my capsule wardrobe I knew that fit-and-flare dresses would be a foundational garment. They are, hands down, my favorite type of clothing. A good fit-and-flare, or A-line dress is comfortable, flattering, and timelessly classic. I particularly like that dresses in this shape work with my body. Rather than trying to compress my… View Article
