1 Mock-Neck Dress, 5 Ways

Mock-necks, the turtle-neck’s cool cousin, has had a special place in my heart for a couple years now. I know, that’s not all that long. Before then, I rarely really gave this neckline a chance.

{ Lipstick Love } Five Favorites

Happy National Lipstick Day! Another day, another holiday I would have never known about if it wasn’t for social media. So how am I celebrating? By learning how to make stop-motion videos with my main squeeze. I got a new desk with a pretty wood top that I’ve been eager to photograph. Add a handful … Continue Reading

{ Dare To Wear } Heat-Wave Chic

Holy hot temps! We took these pics in the summer swelter in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, of course!

{ Dare To Wear } Summer-Style To The Maxi

Like my dress? Thanks! I got it at a consignment shop and tend to wear it more than other maxis I’ve paid much more for. Why? The cut is so complementary, even on my 5’2 1/2 frame. The fabric is super light (perfect for the heat wave we’ve been having), but not sheer. Oh, and … Continue Reading

It’s casual. It’s cool. It’s often my uniform for living life. Denim on denim, or the “Canadian tuxedo” as many call it, is easy and effortless. Plus you can take it so many different ways, depending on how you accessorize it. A bright heel, slip-on sneaker, or perhaps snake-skin loafers — all-denim dressing is can … Continue Reading

{ Dare To Wear } Yoga Pants as Real Pants

Hello, hello! How I’ve missed you so! I took a little break from blogging (most of May! eeee!!). That was the first time I’ve ever taken a real blogging break since the blog started over five years ago. Work got busy. Life got busy. I needed to reflect. I felt kinda burnt out and ended … Continue Reading

I’ve always had a thing for retro styles. The circle skirt + this little jacket that I’ve owned for like 10 years = a ladylike look with a mid-century vibe and lots of personality, perfect for a bridal or baby shower. Note to self: remember this outfit the next time I’m running late to a … Continue Reading

{ Dare To Wear } Who Says Statement Accessories Can’t Be Casual?

Sunglasses: Check. Animal-print socks: check. Floral-embellished clutch: check. I heart this look, big time! This outfit consists of neutral clothes and shoes that can go with oh-so much, and eye-catching accessories. When it comes to clothes I tend to live in styles that are more on the neutral spectrum. Then I can mix and match, … Continue Reading
