checkered.

This is one of those dresses that I did not expect to work for me, but I love it so much.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Ellen Tracy via ThredUP
Belt: eBay
Sandals: Madewell
Bag: Coach, vintage
Earrings: Urban Outfitters

I got this dress in my first ever ThredUp Goody Box and I initially thought I would send it back—midi length, low cut, v-neck—all things I tend to avoid. But in this case, I loved it too much. I love the print and the feel of this dress so much that I just ignore that it might make me look short or may not be the most flattering thing ever. Because sometimes you just have to wear the dress.

newspaper cats.

I don't look great in these photos because I was coming down with a cold when these were taken, but I did like the outfit.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: ModCloth
Top: Urban Outfitters via ThredUp
Cardigan: Old Navy
Shoes: DSW

It looks like a skirt but it's actually a dress with a little top over it! This top is only good for wearing over dresses because it's basically backless and verrrry cropped, but that's exactly why I bought it.

style inspiration: transitional.

Sadly it's not really cooling down yet, but I'm getting excited for fall weather and fall outfits.


This is an oldie but a goodie—always love Adina's style.

I'm ready for all the cardigans, denim jackets, and long skirts.

otter friends.

Something miraculous happened the day I wore this outfit: I had enough time to take these outfit photos before work! That almost never happens. So, my makeup looks great & I look totally unwrinkled in these. It's awesome.

What I'm wearing:
T-Shirt: J. Crew Outlet
Skirt: Loft
Shoes: DSW
Necklace: J. Crew Outlet
Earrings: Loft

I bought this t-shirt and this necklace from the J. Crew outlet at the end of May and I loooooove both of them. This necklace is the perfect accent piece, and the shirt is subtle enough to wear to work (admittedly, I can get away with a lot more in terms of clothes at work than most).

Also, disregard the huge red mark on my leg—a week before I took these photos, I had an incident with a box at the gym (not a cardboard box, this kind of box) and it's taken a very long time to heal—I actually have a bone bruise which I didn't know was a thing but it takes a loooong time to heal. So, don't be surprised if my leg looks a bit janky for a few months.

black & grey.

I can't believe it's almost the end of July—this month has flown by. It's apparently monsoon season in northern Virginia so between that & my schedule, I haven't been able to do outfit photos much. This outfit is actually from the beginning of the month, just a casual weekend outfit.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Target
Sneakers: Keds x Rifle Paper Co.
Necklace: gift

Super simple but seasonally appropriate. This is my third pair of Rifle Paper Co. x Keds sneakers because they went on sale and I couldn't resist.
