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.

rose gold & flowers.

I hope everyone had a happy Fourth! This isn't a holiday appropriate outfit, but it's a pretty good one I wore to work a couple weeks ago.

What I'm wearing:
Blouse: Urban Outfitters
Dress: Pact Organic
Shoes: ModCloth
Necklace: gift

With a special appearance by our cat Nathan! He loooooves the patio (he's too lazy & big to try to jump the fence, unlike our other cat Hannah), and so whenever we're out there, he has to be out there too. 

I found out about Pact Organic from—of all things—a Facebook ad, advertising their beautiful cotton dresses for $25 and free shipping. I clicked, and ended up buying this black A-line tank dress, which is perfect for layering (I checked and it's no longer available, sadly). 

Also, these shoesssss. I rarely buy from ModCloth since they were acquired by Walmart, but occasionally they have some good items on sale, like these Bettie Page flats. I need to find things other than black that they go with, but this is a start!

flowers + branches.

You guys are not going to believe how much I paid for this dress...

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Hearts & Roses, thrifted
Shoes: Old Navy
Earrings: Target
Belt: eBay

I thrifted this dress for $6. SIX DOLLARS! It's by a British vintage & retro inspired brand, Hearts & Roses, and retails for around $60. It's extremely well made, and fits me almost perfectly. How good is that?

an old favorite.

This is totally a recycled outfit, but it still works.

This Target blouse & H&M dress have lasted me a lot longer than I thought they would, that's for sure.
