Today’s fun highlights:

  • I’m not sure about the proportion element of this outfit, but I’m posting it anyways, because I love the mix of these classic items for a cool street style look.
  • I’m also not sure how I feel about the results of the election. I’m now at the point where I am accepting them and am cautiously hopeful about the future and the goodness of the general population of America.
  • But believe me, Wednesday was ROUGH. I called my mom bawling during my lunch hour, because I needed an adult to tell me things would be okay. And then I browsed J.Crew at the mall and didn’t buy a single thing!
  • I still believe in the goodness of people, and I still believe that love will prevail. And that’s the last you’ll hear from me about the election. The future is waiting to see what we do next. Let’s get to it.
  • In other (much more light hearted news), one of my best friend’s birthdays is today! Happy last-birthday-in-your-20s, B! We’re spending our weekend in Bloomington, IN this weekend celebrating her and The Husband (who has his own birthday on Sunday….happy early birthday, Love!)! I can’t wait to be back in some of my favorite places with some of my favorite people. Cheers to that!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • You know…because that’s a thing. That I just created…on this blog…where I am most definitely not Parisian nor a motorcycle biker.
  • And most people would debate you on the chic part too! ;)
  • This week flew by and I’m happy to be back into the swing of things at work (and not buried under emails after being out)!
  • This weekend we’re staying home, and I’m attempting to clean out my closet (or at least start the process). My side of the closet is slowwwllly starting to take over the whole closet.
  • We’re also going to our annual Halloween party! I’ll try to remember to share our costume on Instagram, but it is a secret until then!
  • Is anyone else dressing up for Halloween? Let me know what you are going as!

Girly Gingham Meets Rocker Leather

I actually styled this look on a whim because I needed a jacket to wear into work, since it was chilly in the morning. A good leather jacket is a lifesaver, and this flowy gingham skirt is proving to be a staple in my closet. But together?

It’s end-of-the-movie Sandy from Grease meets Dorothy from Wizard of Oz. 

And I love it!

A little girly and a little leather never hurt anyone, right?

Bad to the Bone

Cause I’m bad to the bone…

…wellllll as bad to the bone as someone in fleece-lined tights and a polka dot print dress can be.

I’ve had this motorcycle faux leather jacket (from Target!) for a couple of years now, and it really only gets worn the few times that I go out and celebrate at bars in the fall/winter. Because it’s a warm layer that still looks cool (unlike my giant puffer jacket). Beyond that, it might be a little too “hard” for my normal style, but I love it when I wear it.

I wore this look out to the bars to celebrate B’s birthday a few weeks back and then I wore the exact same outfit again to work. And yes, that means I am the type of person who would wear a shirt dress to the bar…and then to work! I’m basically the coolest person you know.

Hope you guys had a great long weekend and aren’t dragging too much today! Did you get your fill of family, food, and shopping?

ps. This dress has polka dots (obviously), pockets, and is on sale today!! #win

Fall Capsule #1: Stripe Dress – Urban

DSC083791DSC083871DSC083911DSC083821DSC083901

The first look with this dress (here if you missed it) was quirky, and now, I’m taking you to the streets (of a quirky neighborhood in Indy…see how that works?).

I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but it is getting chilly here in the Midwest. Apparently a cold front is moving in, and there is nothing I love more than layering up when that happens (or you know, drinking copious amounts of hot chocolate).

Plaid plus stripes? Who knew it could be so cool?

I am obsessed with the urban look and actually ended up wearing this exact outfit to the baby shower this past weekend. Super casual and covered up, since I was crawling around with some kids!

Which one would you wear? How else do you recommend styling a stripe dress (I’m fishing for ideas ;))!
