This sequin dress was a surprise gift and I couldn’t be more excited to wear it! Sequins have been pretty hot in fall fashion, but the sparkles will always make me think of New Year’s Eve. But New Year’s is too far away, so I’m just waiting for a birthday, special event, or a random […]

It’s been raining all week, which is a bummer since I have to walk to class – BUT it’s the perfect opportunity to wear my favorite trench coat. Whenever I wear it, I like to keep a classic look with a casual white button-up, blue jeans, and brown accents. Details: Coat: H&M Jeans: Urban Outfitters […]

Every other week I attend meetings with professional speakers and need to be dressed in business casual. As the weather started changing I noticed I don’t have nearly enough professional clothing in fall colors (my favorites!). After an impromptu shopping spree, this is one of my favorite looks. The sweater looks great with dark jeans […]

lace, blue, blue lace, nude heels, wedding, hoops, vintage

A few weeks back my best friend went to a friend’s wedding. She said it was the most beautiful event she’d been to. They held the wedding & reception in an antique furniture store. My friend’s look was so adorable, I had to have her let me capture it for my blog. Details: Dress – […]

jeans, boots, cargo jacket, white shirt

I came across this picture of Rachel Bilson on Pinterest and fell in love. It’s everything I love about casual-cute.

graphic tee, denim shorts, high waist, high waist denim, sweater, oxfords

Usually by Labor Day weekend I’m ready to bring out my scarves and boots, but this Labor Day was a hot one and it looks like temperatures are going to be high for a while. It doesn’t exactly constitute an Indian Summer because it was never cold, then hot again, but that’s sort of what […]

vintage, lace, gold, earrings, necklace, drop waist

This weekend my girlfriends and I held what we dubbed “Classy Night,” where we dressed up in lace, pearls, and pumps to hit the town. I found this drop waist golden dress at a vintage shop here in Iowa City and on impulse bought it. I don’t usually go for ultra feminine looks, but this […]
