Buffalo Plaid

buffaloplaid4

I’ve been seeing a lot of “buffalo plaid” lately…have you noticed the trend? Buffalo plaid is basically just a large scale gingham, traditionally in red and black and most of the time made of flannel. I personally like it because it’s plaid but simpler, so it’s easy to pair with other patterns and textures, but [...]

Schoolgirl Lumberjack

Saturday, it was nearly 90 degrees outside, so I was stupid and wore a flannel shirt. Today it’s super windy, so, of course, I wore a skirt that’s definitely a bad choice for a windy day. Also, I stepped outside without my jacket before I realized I definitely needed the jacket. It was quite chilly. [...]

Fall Textures

When you want to dress for fall, but the weather is a bit too hot, here’s what you do: wear tweed shorts (the kind you’d wear in cooler weather with tights), a thin scarf, and cute booties.  Top: secondhand. This top is a sheer lace fabric. I wear it with a nude camisole underneath.I like [...]

Cobalt and Yellow

cobalt and yellow

The first week of October is greeting us with summer weather, so I figured I might as well get a bit more use out of my summer clothes before they go into hiding for the winter. Thus, the dress. Cardigan: secondhand Gap. I love cobalt and yellow together, so I paired this yellow striped sweater [...]

Outfit Collages

I’ve decided I’m going to try out a new approach to this blog. I find that I’m really unmotivated to take pictures of myself everyday…that’s really my only excuse for not posting as of late. I love putting together outfits and I love sharing them, I just don’t love taking pictures of myself. So I’ve [...]

End of Summer Outfit

summer_end1

I feel like I spent most of my summer wearing a t-shirt dress, leggings, and Toms. Since I babysat three days a week for most of July and some of June and August, that was my wardrobe. Playing with three kids who treat me like a jungle gym requires clothing that stretches easily and doesn’t [...]

Fall Wish List

fall_wishlist

I’m SO excited for fall weather. It’ll be nice when I don’t have to remove layers when I go outside (because a normal indoor temperature is cold to me). I’m noticing a trend amongst the outfits I’ve been pinning lately (check it out here). They’re all pretty classic looks–simple pieces with timeless shapes and patterns, [...]

Be Silent

tomato_red5

I don’t know how I’ve never noticed that this top and dress work so well together. Well I’ve finally discovered the combo, and I’m sure this won’t be the last time I wear it. I love colors like tomato red, burnt sienna, rust–very autumnal colors. Which is awesome…because autumn is approaching. Excitement! Also, check out [...]

White on Labor Day

Happy Labor Day! I figured I should probably post this outfit before the holiday ends, since some people may actually follow that “no white after Labor Day” rule. According to most fashion sources, though, winter white is a big trend on the runway for fall 2013. I see no reason to eliminate a neutral from [...]

Tropical Maxi

tropical5

I got this colorful, tropical maxi skirt for $5 at a consignment store in Asheville. I got a lot of other items, as well, for $5 at that store! I was pretty excited.  I think this skirt was originally part of some outdated old-lady suit, but I definitely prefer it without the matching boxy top, [...]
