I usually don’t like showing my midriff, but this is so slight I thought what the heck.
The high neck also makes it seem a little more conservative, which I like. I think I was drawn to this print because as a kid I LOVED tie-dye. This muted version seems more wearable, and a little more 2014… a little less 1965.
Hope you all are having a terrific Tuesday. Since I’m in the musical mood – why not share a “Tuesday Tune”? I’ve been listening to Ed Sheeran’s new album quite a bit – and can’t seem to get this song
out of my head. Enjoy!
Top & Skirt: One Clothing (similar color / styles here and here )
For those of you that work in freezing cold offices like I do, this is a good outfit option for you. Layers are your friend! I love this sweater because it’s just breathable enough so that it keeps you warm without making you melt. It also looks great layered over colored blouses because it allows for some color to pop through.
For MY pop of color – I painted my tootsies a bright blue. When worn on my finger nails, I feel like I’m in 7th grade again, but on the feet it’s not so bad. (At least that’s my story – and I’m sticking to it!)
Shoes: Dolce Vita
Clutch: Express (old)
Watch: New York & Co.
When I’m in a rush and need to quickly pick out something to wear I almost always dress in all black. With mixed fabrics it comes on more chic than gothic. For this look I took an old dress, layered a leather skirt over it and POOF – it’s an entirely new look!
What’s your go to outfit when you’re in a rush? Let me know! Also, follow me on bloglovin’ for weekly updates on my posts. Thanks for stopping by!

Ever have those moments when you go to buy something and pause to think, “is this too much?” Well, I don’t usually have that moment, except for with these pants… for about half a second. Then, I decided that I loved them and don’t care if they’re ‘too much’. Wear what makes you happy right?

I’m baaack! Vacation was AMAZING, but I’m glad to be back in the groove of things and back to blogging! I must admit I feel refreshed, and considering the massive amount of style magazines I sifted through on the plane rides – I’m also feeling very inspired!
This look was something I wore before we headed off to Virginia Beach. These jeans were actually given to me by my co-worker, Maggie (you can check out her blog at maggiekrol.com
) and they fit like a glove!
You may also recognize the gray top. It’s such a great piece to have because it gives a very basic t-shirt a little something extra.
As for the denim vest? Can you believe it’s from target? I always go for fit rather than name brand, and this fit just as well as any other much more expensive vests I’ve tried on… leaving me more mula to spend on other pieces I’ve got my eye on 🙂
