A Chic Summer Trouser

sweater-Uniqlo(more sweaters here), top-J.Crew(similar here), trousers-Zara(similarish here), necklace-chloe + isabel, cuff-Vintage, ring-Jewel Mint(available from Poshmark here), wedges-Sole Society(similar here)

I styled these ecru trousers VERY similarly in this post last month. That look was more casual. in this OOTD I've amped up the elegance with heels, a silk top, and crystal necklace. Which goes to show, how surprisingly versatile, for summer outfitting, these trousers are. I say trousers, as opposed to pants because there's a lot of subtle detail to be find in this pair. They are cropped, oversized, tapered, high-waisted, AND pleated! But, even through they are high maintenance being white and dry-clean only, I really do feel they are worth it for the high-summer chic factor alone. Don't you?

And yes, that IS a train passing in the background for some of these shots. 🚆

Little Black Boho Dress

jacket-J.Crew, dress-Old Navy, belt-Gap(a fun option here), flats-Dr. Scholls, necklace-Gifted(similar here from Alex and Ani)

I recently picked up several easy-going bohemian shifts from Old Navy to wear the crap out in these last few weeks of summer. You may recall this paisley number here. For this OOTD I wore a LBBD aka Little Black Boho Dress belted and topped off with my badass white denim jacket, last seen here. Looking at these pics now, I can't help but want to reach out and adjust my belt, but overall I'm very pleased with the result. And I'm thinking this LBBD will be a great transition dress as we roll into fall.

An Unexpected Stripe

shirt/joggers-J.Crew(a more on trend shirt here and casual pants here), tank-Gap(similar here), loafers-Zara(a much fancier pair here), bracelet-Gifted(similar from Anthropologie here)

I'm a huge fan of stripes and I love mixing them into one outfit. In this #OOTD we have traditional pinstripes in the joggers, topped by horizontal navy and white stripes in this oversized tank, and for an extra bit of fun a sequined trim side stripe in the shirt! It's a bevy of stripes!!

Black n' White August Part 2

cardi-Forever 21(similarish here), culottes-Mango(similar here), tee-J.Crew, necklace-Martin & Osa(similarish here), flats-Dr. Scholls(similar here). 

In this post here I was all boho-caz in black n' white. Now it's Monday morning of a busy work week and I'm super profesh in these window-pane culottes and chic B&W cardi. I went for a simple T-shirt as opposed to a blouse or button-up as I didn't want my top to "compete" with the other two statement pieces of this look. Plus, it's way easy to achieve a "sloppy" half tuck with a cotton tee than more traditional shirting.

Mommy & Me: Black, White, & Denim

I've posted #twinning outfits with my daughter here, here, & here. For a recent road trip I decided on coordinated, more so than matching ensembles. Here are our looks laid out:

I was going for black & white with denim. I've been on a B&W kick as you can see from this post. When we made a quick rest stop we tried to get shots of baby girl and I in our coordinated ensembles:

Then someone decided they were much more interested in checking out a huge yellow pipe!

And when I tried to redirect her attention back to taking pics things got a bit out of hand, literally....

So we snapped a few final shots of just me.

And while the photographing of our outfits didn't go all that great, the coordinated looks themselves  came across rather well.
