white shirt dress for spring

I put this outfit on and immediately loved the combo. It’s incredibly comfortable while still looking nice. It’s also easy to elevate with a swap of the sandals for a pair of espadrille heels or leopard flats. This black cardigan goes with just about anything, but is especially nice for this time of year when it’s not cold but not quite warm either.

spring style inspiration

After a week in palm springs, i’m ready to fully embrace warm weather style. It’s not quite warm enough in Raleigh just yet and half my clothes still need to be unpacked, but a girl can dream! I’ve been thinking a lot recently about what makes a killer wardrobe and I think the key ingredient is feeling awesome about every aspect - style, fit, comfort. This spring comfort is really calling my name and I want all the comfy pants! And no, that doesn’t only mean leggings and sneaks… What it does mean is:

an accidental capsule wardrobe

Given that I had to pack a capsule-ish wardrobe for our 3 weeks of transition time during the moves, I went very neutral with my choices - mostly blacks, whites, tans, and a little blue here and there. These shoes and the top are two pieces I routinely grab when I can’t come up with another outfit. Since I had to narrow my wardrobe down to essentials, I ended up going with my tried and true favorites. Here are a few things that made the cut:

my newest love

I don’t think anyone who truly knows me will be surprised about this, but I have fallen in love with overalls. I knew it was bound to happen. My dad’s signature style is overalls. You know, the legit pointer brand ones that look like you should be working on the railroad. And they’re just so fun! But when they first came back in style, I looked and looked for the right pair and didn’t have much luck. Then I saw these. I asked for them for Christmas. And it’s true love, y’all. They’re so comfortable and practical. That front pocket is the best – it fits my phone perfectly. Also, THEY’RE FREAKING CUTE. I mean there’s about 1 million ways to style them (maybe a post for another day?), they work for all types of weather, they are practical, and they’re stylish. What’s not to love?

march resolution: embracing winter style

I know that come March, most people are dying for winter to be over. I hate sitting in a waiting mentality though and so instead, I’ve decided this year to really embrace the cold weather style for the next month and then once March is over, I’ll let myself go whole hog into the warm weather attitude. This does two things: prevents me from sitting in the bad attitude of “I hate cold weather” and allows me to look at my clothing from a “what do I want to wear more of before I can’t wear it anymore.”

what i'm packing for mexico

It’s almost here! Every year, I get the winter blues and I find the best way to help is to get away somewhere warm. This year, we’re headed to Tulum, Mexico and I couldn’t be more excited! It’s my first time in Mexico and I don’t speak a lick of Spanish, but I’m so ready for tequila, tacos and SUN. Packing for a warm weather trip in the middle of winter is a very strange thing, but I think the stark contrast makes it a little easier to identify your favorite summer items since it’s been so long since you’ve worn them. Here’s a look at what I’m packing…

winter athleisure

My athleisure outfits are still going strong well into the winter months, but they does require a few adjustments to contend with the cold. I am a big fan of an oversized down vest because you can throw it over practically anything. It has big pockets so it's great for a wallet + phone combo for taking a walk or running errands. It's also warm so I can throw it on if I'm running to grab the mail or heading to the gym.

a little january color

In keeping with the idea of finding something uplifting to mix up the January blahs, here’s a colorful outfit to get you through the colder months. It was actually sunny for a hot second while we were taking these pictures, which was amazing, but one of the reasons I love this sweater is because it’s super warm and comfortable. Warm + stripes + color + bell sleeves = the perfect sweater.

how to dress up a sweatshirt

A sweatshirt is not most people’s go-to for an outfit to wear around town, but they’re warm and comfortable so why not? I wanted to show how I make a sweatshirt less sloppy and more polished for this reason. I think this outfit combo could even work for an office if you swapped out the jeans for a pair of chinos or dress joggers + used a silk button up instead of a flannel.

athleisure 3 ways

Everyone says it’s important to get up and get dressed when working from home and I definitely agree, but it just feels pointless to put on a nice outfit just to walk upstairs and sit at my computer. But since I know the power of feeling good in what you’re wearing, I’ve come up with a few athleisure options that make me feel confident and comfortable at the same time.
