Trying Out Le Tote

I think the clothing rental subscription is a great idea. Not only can you mix up your wardrobe or try different styles/shapes/color combos without having to purchase a lot of items, you can also wear, for a limited time, pieces that you might not otherwise be able to afford (or at least not this many of them).

There are a couple different versions of this. You can do something like Continue reading

Layering Up + Summer to Winter Style


Baby it’s cold outside. FabFitFun’s post on Instagram last night said “I’m not going outside again until the temperature is above my age.” I wish. But in the meantime I’ll layer up with another day of #PSstylinghacks

On days when the temperature is under 20, not only is it frigid outside, but it’s pretty chilly inside the office too. I’ve been wearing tons of scarves this winter and this is one of my favorites.

I took these photos when it was still reasonable to stand outside for more than 15 seconds at a time, but I’m wearing the same outfit today (albeit with leggings as well!). Just as one season starts is a great time to find really good deals on the previous season’s items at your favorite stores. This particular (summer) sundress was an early fall purchase from Continue reading

Happy New Year and PopSugar Challenge

Hello my friends! A few people have asked what happened to the blog. My apologies! I got an exciting assignment for work and it was unusually busy (even for me) and I didn’t have too much extra time or energy. But I’m back and will be doing my best to post here on Wednesday and Friday mornings consistently, with maybe a few bonus posts thrown in! I will also post my OOTD or some sort of style-related inspiration to my Instagram account each day, so if you miss me too much you can follow me on Instagram @KayJMitchell.

I’m really excited to start the New Year with a fun idea from PopSugar–the styling hacks challenge! Continue reading

OOTD and The Death of The Pink Flats


Alas! My delightful bright pink flats have already died. I had purchased a pair of leopard flats through Jane.com for $15, then saw the same deal pop up again and picked up these pink guys. The brand is actually Continue reading

(Leopard) Sweater Weather


I’ve got to be honest, I might not have even tried with sweater on were it not for my friend Meg. I was on my own in the store when I saw this and I immediately heard her voice in my head, telling me it was amazing and that I needed to have it. It is very likely that Continue reading

Amazing T-Shirts at Target


I am not ashamed to admit that I love Target. They have some great stuff for pretty reasonable prices. (Plus their latest collaboration with Who What Wear is darling.) Last year they had a really great 3/4 sleeve boat neck t-shirt and I got it in 3 different colors. Just the other day I was wishing that I had picked up duplicates of some of those so that when they inevitably wear out, get stained, or get discolored from too many washes, that I would have replacements. And voilĂ !

When I went in to do some quick browsing yesterday I discovered Continue reading

Maroon Pants and Evolving Your Style


I have been wishing for a pair of maroon pants for so long and they are finally here! These are the exact same style and brand as the olive jeggings I wore earlier this week (JCP’s a.n.a. zip pocket). I debated in the dressing room for a while because there was a pair of Stylus ankle crop skinnies in a similar, but slightly darker, color. In the end I went with these because Continue reading
