Casual Tribal Sweatshirt








Another casual look from this weekend! I’m feeling a lot more freedom on the weekend to come up with looks that don’t revolve around a pencil skirt or a pair of black dress pants (though I love both of those items and will continue to feature work wear looks on this blog).

Let’s face it though, few things beat an outfit that features a sweatshirt and slouchy boyfriend jeans. Comfort at it’s finest…plus, The Husband told me that I looked “cute and sporty.” Who doesn’t want to hear that?!

Key to these jeans? Buy a size or two up than you normally would, ignore the tag (because it doesn’t mean anything anyways), and wear them with everything!

ps. Yes, Mom…that is a teeny tiny bit of distressing on these jeans on the right side (my left). #sorrynotsorry :)


Here’s To You, Red and Blue!








Let’s talk about how this is a pretty simple outfit for work that almost anyone can pull off: skirt + patterned sweater + heels. A-line skirts flatter almost everyone, and the addition of the penny loafer heels keep it business casual and appropriate for nearly any office. The kicker for me in this outfit is the pattern of the sweater: a fun geometric print that’s not too busy AND is in my absolutely favorite color combinations (red and blue)!

We CAN also talk about how I went to ModCloth to look for some similar red/blue print sweaters, and I wanted to order everything and anything there. Specifically, this bag (I mean how perfect are those stripes!) and every single dress there…okay maybe not the pink ones.

Have you ever bought anything from ModCloth?! Any feedback?

ps. Apparently, Birkenstock-style sandals are ahit or miss trend. Some of you love them…and some of you hate them. Join the debate (check out yesterday’s post)!


Biking My Way Into the Weekend









Nothing says spring like bright white Toms and a perfect graphic sweatshirt. The weather is still on the cooler side in the mornings here, so this was perfect for today’s activities!

  • Survivor (the best longest running show ever!) – yes I am a nerd
  • Grilling dinner is back!
Today’s not-so-fun highlights:

Save or Splurge?, Vol. 11: Cognac Tote Bag

cognac tote bag for less Madewell and Target
Save or Splurge? is a post where I’ll show you an item from Target and its higher end version that potentially inspired it.

So I loved this bag and didn’t want anyone to miss out on such a great STEAL that I am also showcasing it in the weekly Save or Splurge post. For more information about this bag, check out this post with a full review.

If you’re like me and lusting after ever other style blogger’s Madewell Transport Tote (Lucky magazine calls it the tote that’s taking over the world in this article), but don’t have $168, check out this Save at your local Target for $35 (here).

Are you sick of this bag yet or have you purchased it?!
