Dotted line

This is a shirt I typically wear to work, and I appreciate its dual functionality as a professional piece, yet simple enough to pair with jeans and a statement necklace.

There’s something about these jeggings that look great in the mirror, but don’t translate well in these pictures. Maybe it’s the angle? I struggled with these photos because I couldn’t get over my magnified thighs. I appreciate their stretch, thin material and everlasting dark wash, but I’m feeling a little betrayed today. Maybe it’s just me. It’s just me.

If you blog, how do you get over insecurities in photos? I figure the best I can do is put them out there, because I know how great I felt wearing the outfit. Maybe it’ll inspire someone else my size to give the tight jeans a try.

Gloomy whites to match the sky.

And then it started raining.

This lace tank is going to get a lot of wear. I’ve been experimenting with layering it over skirts to make it look like a tiered dress, but without luck. I can’t wait to pair it with sweaters, leggings, socks and boots in the fall. It is very high quality and fits loose and light on the body. 10/10, would buy again.

Summer solstice

I was dying in this. I had no idea how humid it would be but Houston did not disappoint. Forever thankful that black conceals the river that became my armpits.

The filter hides my suffering.

This whole outfit is an example of how personal tastes can change. I never thought I would ever wear jeggings, a peplum top or leopard print, but here they all are on my body. I think I’ll be old and in a wheelchair before I give up wearing American Eagle jeans. They’re so damn comfortable.

Keep it real.


Muted: Gray

It’s dreary today so I thought I would dress appropriately for a mini lookbook for anyone that doesn’t plan on wearing rainbow colors on crack this spring. I can appreciate a bright pink dress with flowers any day, but there’s something alluring about wearing minimal color and simple pieces.


Shoes: Modcloth
Necklace: H&M

Sticking with the minimalism theme, I used these accessories in all three looks. A statement necklace and a pair of black wedges are suitable for all seasons, and are extremely versatile.

This is a very cool palette, and the fabrics of each piece are lightweight. It gets extremely hot in the summer, so the last thing you want is an arm full of bracelets and anything other than one layer of clothing resting against your body.

How do you dress for your climate? Do you like a minimal wardrobe or do you enjoy dressing up your looks?

Have a fantastic Monday (ha) and thank you for reading.
