olive + floral

DSC_9136As I’ve mentioned several times before, I used to really hate floral prints. It didn’t matter what the color scheme or pattern was, if there was a flower on it, I hated it. I assumed that all floral prints belonged on my grandmother’s couch and not on my body.

DSC_9121Well, fast-forward 10 years, and here I am loving on some florals–clearly, I’ve gotten over my aversion to them. For this floral button-up, I went a little tomboy by pairing it with my utility jacket and boyfriend jeans. Next time around, maybe I’ll try it with a skirt? Any suggestions are welcome!

rainy day uniform

DSC_8310I don’t know about you, but rain kind of kills my creativity for getting dressed. Wet shoes and muddy hems? No thanks.

DSC_8302So, I’ve adopted a rainy day uniform…that’s full of blogger cliches: rain boots, pattern mixing, and a J.Crew jacket. All I’m missing is a Starbucks cup. But, hey, it keeps me warm and dry.

What do you wear on rainy days?

Linking up with Laura for Confident Twosday!

gray dots + red

DSC_7368I’ve liked the combination of gray + red for a while now, but I’ve never really been able to make it work. (See this outfit for proof!)

DSC_7353After seeing Lisa’s look a few weeks ago, I decided to try this color combination again. I’m happier with the results this time. Polka dots make everything better right?

DSC_7373In full disclosure, this outfit didn’t last long as you see it here. After peeling off my sweater twice for Caleb’s feedings, I decided to just forget it. #momlife

poppy + stripes

DSC_7252Every time I wear this blazer, I seem to use a different word to describe its color. Today, I’m going with “poppy.”

DSC_7241I really can’t take any credit at all for this outfit–I pretty much copied this look verbatim. But, hey, when Pinterest hands me a no-brainer outfit, I’m not one to refuse.



I’m especially not going to refuse when the shirt matches the lining of my blazer so perfectly. The extent to which this pleases me is slightly embarrassing. But not embarrassing enough for me not to share it with you 🙂
