For the Love of Shirt Dresses

Shirt dresses are one of my all-time favorite wardrobe staples for easy one-and-done outfits. They’re a classic style that works from the beach to a board room, and I always feel effortlessly put together and comfortable when I wear them. I found this gingham shirt dress on a Dillards clearance rack, and couldn’t pass up the front wrap design. Anything that defines the waist is a petite lady’s best friend: it helps to balance our…

Florida finally decided to participate in winter, but only for about 50% of the day, so layers and light sweaters over jeans were my go-to #OOTDs last week. Some notes: 1. As I mentioned in this post, I picked up two more pairs of the LOFT performance denim leggings when they were on sale for $25, and I love the staple indigo wash (as seen on Saturday and Sunday). They’re slightly stretchier than the dark…

Performance Denim Leggings

  I bought these LOFT Performance Denim Leggings during the Black Friday sale, and I’m wearing them on repeat this winter. They’re the best of both worlds between a legging and a skinny jean, with just enough stretch to hold their shape while giving a super comfortable, yoga pant feel. (Hence the reason I keep pulling them on day after day.) These denim leggings have a mid-rise that sits right on top of the hips. I bought…

Last week was a super busy holiday week, which meant lots of cozy sweaters, easy flats, and messy topknots. I spent most of the week in my car, delivering Christmas orders all over town, so comfort was my top priority. Speaking of comfy, I ordered these Everlane high-rise skinny jeans in black and mid-blue and I really love the style and fit. I went with the ankle version with a 26.5″ inseam; the perfect length for…

Style Files

I introduced this “Style Files” idea back in February and you guys were really into it! As I get back into the swing of blogging — after a rough 2017, I realized how much I really missed this creative outlet — I hope to make it a regular series. I love that I’m not the only one craving real-life, relatable style these days,  I started shooting iPhone mirror selfies before I run out the door…

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
