Tee: Madewell (similar here and here), Skirt: Madewell, Shoes: Madewell, Purse: J.Crew (25% off with code: LOTSTOSHOP), Necklace: Madewell, Bracelets: Madewell (on sale), Earrings: Madewell, Sunglasses: TOMS, Lip balm: bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip Color in "Rose Passion" I'm always shocked when I come across someone who isn't familiar with the Madewell brand. Because they've become such a staple in my wardrobe, it's difficult to imagine a time when I dressed without them. Ever since they emerged under J.Crew's umbrella a few years ago, I've been hooked. They make some of the most practical basics out there, while seamlessly fusing trends with classics. And apart from just nailing the aesthetic, they always...

Sweater: Madewell (identical version here), Skirt: Sheinside c/o, Heels: Express, Clutch: (similar here), Bracelet: Gorjana c/o, Lipstick: Lancome in "Lucky Kiss", Nail Polish: Essie in "Olé Caliente" A black pencil skirt is one of those items you're bound to find in every girl's closet. They're undeniably classic, and a great staple for interviews, meetings, and/or work. But it wasn't until recently that I owned a leather one (or in this case faux leather), and I'm already having so much fun styling it. Since they're a bit edgier by nature, I prefer to balance it with a softer look up top. A knitted sweater is the perfect juxtaposition to...

Red 23 Jacket: Brothers On The Blvd, Tee: Equipment (similar here), Skirt: H&M (similar here, here  and here), Heels: Express To be honest, I bought this skirt with the sense that it might never actually get worn. I know that sounds weird, but it felt edgier than my style at the time, so although I loved it, I wrote it off as one of those pieces that I may never actually make use of (a bad habit I am working on!). Thinking back on that now is funny because it's become one of the most versatile pieces I own. In fact, it changed my feelings about wearing leather, and I've...

Fevrie Skirt

Cami: Madewell (similar here), Skirt: Fevrie c/o, Necklace: Gorjana, Bracelet: Gorjana c/o, Heels: Express, Clutch: similar here, Lipstick: Lancome in "Lucky Kiss" If you follow my blog, you've probably caught on to the fact that I try to avoid short-lived trends, instead focusing on classic pieces (and colors) that can be worn for years to come. This isn't to say that I don't love a good trend, though, so when I can sneak one into an otherwise classic look, I consider it a major win. This skirt offers exactly that. The mesh paneling gives it a modern, edgy feel, but the black pencil silhouette is a...

Fitting For Fall

Oversized sweater

Sweater: Express, Bralet: Eberjey, Skirt: H&M (similar here, here  and here), Boots: Express (similar here and here), Purse: Old Navy, Bracelets: Madewell, Nail Polish: Essie in "Mink Muffs" You might associate a black mini skirt with something to be worn during warmer months, but I'm using mine even though the days have started to cool down. The leather-like material helps make this one perfect for fall, and it would work just as well in the winter simply by adding a pair of tights. I used to worry that black leather would come off too edgy for day wear, but a neutral sweater instantly softens the look. Top it...
