I’m Going Off the Grid

This week has been one crazy week and I am happy that we are nearing the end of it. I am also ending my streak of all black clothing. I’ll be back to full-color outfits very soon and hopefully, Spring won’t be too far behind. To end my all black streak, I choose I pattern that I am very fond of. It’s the grid pattern that Shein does so well in white and black or black in white. You may remember I own a white jacket and a black skirt that I wore here with the same pattern. I saw this Tie Neck Grid Print dress on Shein’s site and instantly added it to my cart. I don’t know what it is about this print, but I want everything Shein sells in it. The grid is a classic print that can easily be paired with solids or other prints. In this…

Don’t Ruffle My Feathers

For the past week, I’ve been hosting a Self-Love Email Challenge and sharing corresponding blog posts. Self-love is super important to me and part of my self-care ritual. I truly believe that the way you love yourself is reflected in the relationships you have in your life. And despite my fashion mood being all black everything, I’m actually in a great place in my life. I couldn’t help but fall in love with this Contrast Ruffle Pinstripe Sleeve Top from Shein, so I order it. We live such busy and stressful lives, so it’s easy to allow other people to ruffle our feathers. This weekend, out of the blue, I got a call from an ex wanting to grab drinks and catch up. I haven’t seen this ex in years, but he holds a special place in my heart. However, when he reached out with a request to crash at my place, my…

All Black Everything

I was born in January in the Mid-West and then grew up in New England. So you would think that I loved the cold, but I actually HATE the cold weather. And snow is pretty coming down, but I usually avoid being out in it. However, it recently snowed in Maryland and I took this opportunity to get in a quick photo shoot in to show you one of my new favorite sweaters from Shein, but before I do, you have to check out my Carlos Santana boots. I’ve been in an all black everything black mood lately, so everything that I’ve ordered has been black. You’ll see the pattern in my next few fashion posts. When I received this Rolled Neck Overlap Hem Sweater, I knew I wanted to pair it with my Carlos Santana combat boots and my faux leather pleated skirt. This Overlap sweater is soft and super cute…

Loungin’ with the Loft

This post is sponsored by The Loft, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. So over the holiday break, I generally spent 85-90% of my time lounging on my parents’ couch. This year I decided I wanted my visit to be different. Instead of lounging around the house in comfy clothes 90% of the time, I would lounge around 75% of the time, LOL, and be cute while I did it. I love all things velvet and fell in love with these Curvy Velvet Skinny Jeans from the Loft. These jeans are super soft and comfortable. Thankfully, they don’t hug my belly too tight, so they are perfect for lounging around the house or going out with friends. I paired the jeans with their Lace Sleeve sweater that I had been eyeing for a while. Even though the sweater is white and you know how I feel about white,…

Traveling in Style

This post is sponsored by The Loft, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I travel a fair amount throughout the year and when it comes to dressing for travel, I have two rules. 1. It must be comfortable enough to wear for hours. 2. It must be cute because you never know who you might run into or what you might have to do upon arrival. So therefore, I take my travel clothing very serious. I am one of those people who will plan her outfit out the night before and even lay it out if I have an early morning flight, so as not to forget anything. This may seem silly, but the ONE time, I didn’t put any thought into my travel outfit, I overslept, had to just throw on anything for the flight and then ended up having to conduct business in whatever I had…
