Vintage Gucci

I thank my lucky stars all the time that my mom saved so many awesome vintage pieces for my sister and I. When it comes to fashion, shopping vintage is one of the things that gives me the greatest pleasure. And you know what’s even better than scoring a great vintage find? Getting an amazing vintage piece WITHOUT the hunt. So, thanks mom!

Gucci is dominating spring and summer — you can’t scroll through Instagram without seeing the signature Gucci print somewhere, which is why I begged my mom to turn over this vintage Gucci bowler from the ’80s. I’ve had my eye on this bag for awhile, and even got the inside reupholstered in college when my mom let me  borrow it! The bag and shoes here are the main focus (the shoes are vintage from my mom as well,) so everything else is simple and classic, perfect for a crisp spring day at the office! read more

#TravelingPearls

pealrs 9

There’s really nothing quite as classic as a string of gorgeous pearls, #amiright? As Jackie O put it, “pearls are always appropriate.” I took that statement to heart, and challenged myself to style this gorgeous Elizabeth lariat necklace from Windsor Avenue in a less conventional way. 

Before I break down the look, I want to tell you guys a little bit about the traveling pearls (you can read the full story here.) Inspired by the concept of the famous “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” — only way more chic —  Olivia Hollaus, Founder and Creative Director of Windsor Avenue, selected 3 bloggers across the US to wear the same string of pearls. I was lucky enough to be chosen, alongside Holly Boyd from Make Today a Holly Day and Jacyln from Beauty and the Binky read more

Mom Jeans (Can) Mean Business

Yep, you heard that right – I’m styling up my favorite mom jeans for a day at the office! Now, let’s be clear, I have a creative work environment so I can get away with wearing just about anything I want to work. However, I think this outfit could easily work for a casual Friday outfit for those of you who have to get a bit more buttoned up for the office.

These 501 Levi’s have kind of changed my outlook on mom jeans all together. I haven’t had a lot of luck with fit in the past, but then, I found these guys and I’m in love! I’ve worn them several times before on the blog, including this ‘70s look which is one of my personal favorites. Aren’t they flattering? Turns out you don’t have to be a supermodel to pull off the look! read more

Wear Converse to Work

Seriously!

I’ve always worked in a creative space, so I’ve never had a set uniform (except the time that I worked at Joe’s Crab Shack for two weeks in college and then proceeded to quit, but that hilarious story later…) So naturally, I’ve always been fortunate enough to dress casual at the office. However, I’m always afraid that there is going to be a last minute meeting called and I don’t want to be the girl in sweats and sneaks. We all know that girl. read more

Summer Obsession: Shirt Dresses

Look 2 - 2

Look 2 - 3

Look 2-1

Honestly – shirt dresses are the best. They’re so freaking easy and they end up looking really polished. I have a ton of them in a variety of color ways (denim, white, black …) but this striped one really stood out to me. The mix matched horizontal and vertical lines create a pattern play to the eyes. I decided to go work casual for this look, pairing it with my trusty black vest, and black and white loafer-mule hybrids. You’ll never guess where I got these shoes from… Forever 21! Go ahead, try NOT to shop them below. read more
