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

Black, White and Mint All Over


Day two of new JCPenney pants! You guys get a bonus post today because I had yesterday’s all written and then just never got around to putting it up. Today’s pair of jeans is a different brand, though the same cut as yesterday. These are the Stylus brand that I love so much (see the ankle crop jeans I wear nearly every day for evidence of this). I have to say that if I’m comparing today’s jeans to yesterday’s Continue reading

Comfortable But Work Appropriate


Today I needed something that was both comfortable and nicely work-appropriate. I am moving a bunch of things around at work today, so I wanted something I could move in, and also to be layered up so that as I got too warm (inevitable), I would be able to shed a layer and still look nice.


My favorite pair of jeans and this white top with tiny black bird print are a great base. The plum colored cardigan is my layering piece. Every time I put this sweater on I am reminded of how much I love this color. Leopard flats are both practical and fun. And then my pocket watch necklace means my outfit still has some depth, even if I ditch the sweater for a bit.

I feel like I used to have a lot of misconceptions about what was “comfortable.” In college, that meant pjs–sweatpants and a hoodie. When I worked at State Farm, where the dress code was business-dress only, suddenly putting on jeans at the end of the day felt luxurious. Now I think it’s pretty easy to buy jeans that wear nicely and are comfy (thanks to all that stretch). I’ve also reevaluated what I need to be “comfortable.” I’m generally a lot happier when I know that something looks nice on me which, let’s be honest, is probably not yoga pants and a sweatshirt. I am probably most comfortable in some stretchy jeans and a fun, fitted t-shirt.

How about you? What are your go-to comfortable clothes?

Basic, But Not Boring


For the last week and a half, I have been extremely busy with work + home things, but it’s looking like this week will be settled enough that I can get some posting done! I love today’s outfit. The grey and yellow combination is one of my favorites (though InStyle tells me Continue reading

Fun Color Combos: Teal and Red

Teal and red is a color combo I have always really liked seeing, but haven’t ever worn myself. Today I really wanted to wear these fun tasseled sandals (casual Friday!) and realized Continue reading

Florals, Stripes, and Finding Your Style


I do love a nice floral and stripes combo and this is one of my favorite floral tops, which I’ve paired here with striped flats. I’ve once again added a sparkly pearl necklace, it just seems to go so well with these shoes!

At lunch yesterday I was talking with some friends and we were discussing the concept of things that “match” vs. things that “go.” Continue reading
