Plaid for You







The Look
Top: Madewell • JeansMadewell Blazer: Gap  Shoes: Bandolino 

Finally a plaid shirt I can get behind! And by behind, I mean wear without caping buttons or fill fitting shoulders. Leave it to Madewell to have the cutest popover plaid shirt known to man {or maybe just me}. My love hate relationship with button-up shirts, it's well document on the blog ... but popovers they have my seriously re-thinking my hate filled stance. 

I can't wait to wear this little darling into the ground. And I mean that in my best possible way dear popover, really I do.

Long Layers






The Look
Top: Ann Taylor • PantsThe Limited • Bag: Rebcca Minkoff  Boots: Steve Madden

Outfit repeating has been a major theme for me lately. While I wish I had the time, creativity, and energy to put a different outfit together everyday, the truth is I'm often hitting snooze and grabbing tried and true favorites to get me through the day. This outfit is one of my recent go-tos. I have this tee in 3 colors so between switching up the color and scarf I feel slightly better about my constant repeating ways.

Not to mention, it's uber comfortable. The tee basically feels like pajamas and this vest, well, it might as well be a sleeveless blanket. It's something about the winter man. Give me pj-like outfits any day of the week.

Easy Like Sunday Morning







The Look
Sweater: LOFT • Vest: TJ Maxx • Necklace: Stella & Dot  Jeans: Madewell • Shoes: Madewell

This outfit is about a week old, as noted by the lack of snow and the fact that it was 50 some degrees when we shot these photos. What I wouldn't give to go back to Sunday brunch and no coat. 

If you're a Cincinnati local, you might recognize OTR as the backdrop for these photos. Last week my gal pal, Lauren and I ventured to Taste of Belgium for a delicious Sunday brunch and gab fest. We walked through the adorable store next door and stopped at 1215 Wine Bar & Coffee for a little caffeine fix.  

Waffles + Coffee, that's a recipe for a perfect Sunday, no?

Boy Meets Girl







Top: Anthropologie • Blazer: Zara • PantsThe Limited  ShoesJCrew Factory 

I shared this outfit on instagram a few weeks back and figured it's time for this look's day in the blog sun. I really love the pairing of a school boy blazer and a floral feminine top. While it may not be everyone's taste {and I did get a few odd looks at work}, the bottom line is I feel really good in it. The blazer gives the flowy top a bit of structure and adds a bit of polish for the office.

Although I won't be keeping this top strictly in my work wear rotation.
I'm thinking it will look equally as cute paired with my leather jacket and black jeans.
Stay tuned!

Classic Combo






Blazer: Gap • ShirtTarget • Pants: The Limited • Shoes: Halogen via Nordstrom 

As large as my striped top collection has grown over the years, it wan't until recently I added this classic navy and red combo to my closet. Thanks to Target for helping to fuel my addiction. It's a great little tee that works well for days at the office. But it's quite the weekend warrior too. Throw it on with jeans and scarf and you're good to go. But for now I think I'll stick to this winning combination.
