I think this may be my favorite addition to my spring wardrobe this year (so far). I tend to have a hard time finding spring or summer dresses that are long enough. I love this dress because it covers my arms.  Dresses on the shorter side with long sleeves adds balance to a dress. I also love the idea that this dress is casual simply because I love wearing sneakers with dresses. Comfort is always key 🙂

I have to say, I love to wear clothes that give comfort. On busy days, I just have to get myself out the door, but I always like to do my best to look as put together as I can.

There are times when I need to take a break from all the effort it takes to get dressed. I don’t know about you, but when I get dressed it’s usually an entire production. Some days I just don’t have time for that. When I’m short on time, I love to just grab something that looks okay and go about my day. For me, a nice hoodie or fleece does the trick.

Even though certain days I opt for a more casual look, it is still important to look put together. It’s a necessity that the items in your closet are great pieces that make you feel good. When you feel good, it does something with your confidence. When you exude confidence you can conquer the world.

A Coatagain is a a heavy cardigan but a light weight coat. I have been wanting one so bad but couldn’t find the right one. On a whim I went to Old Navy and found this cute coatagain. It also comes in pink, which I almost bought it this weekend (I resisted), but I think I will once they have another sale.

Normally, I loathe wearing white pants. I never find a pair that is flattering on me. I really wanted a pair a few months back and found these in American Eagle, I did a blog post on them here. After wanting these pants so bad I realized I still can’t wear white pants in the winter. These pants are so comfortable, and because of that I am forcing myself out of my comfort zone and making myself wear these amazing wonderful pants.. All Year Long.

What is one way you are trying to force your self out of your comfort zone?

I talk a lot about being comfortable. I can’t express enough how important it is to me be comfortable on my casual days. I can’t imagine myself having a relaxing day wearing something like tight jeans. Torture!

I find myself constantly on the hunt for cute yet casual clothes. Enter the faux leather leggings. They have been a staple for me on the weekends since I have purchased them. Granted I am just wearing leggings, the different texture makes the look more put together which is my goal. I actually wore these pants a few post back, see them here.

Hi Friends! This week I will be traveling to warmer weather, and I am so excited about it.  It has been a while since I have been on a vacation. I love to travel and I put a lot of thought into my outfit when I am getting on a plane. Usually, it’s an extremely long day, and flights are always cold. I love wearing a flannel shirt, over a t-shirt and top it off with a sweater or comfortable jacket. All these items can be found at Old Navy 🙂

Breaking Fashion Rules

Today I am throwing fashion rules out the window! Some fashion rules are old, outdated and, doesn’t make sense, but for some reason I am compelled to follow them. We all know the saying don’t wear white after Labor Day, we shouldn’t mix prints, and be sure to take one accessory off before you leave the house. Today, I am saying so what to the rules.

Recently, I heard about a challenge call Try-day Friday, created by Dia&Co., where Friday’s they wear something to the office they typically wouldn’t wear. The idea is to face your fashion fears. I love this concept because we can all use a little push every now and then.

If I am honest, ignoring the rules did make me uncomfortable, when I wore these jeans, I kept thinking everyone is looking at me because I am wearing white after Labor Day? Once I realize I’m doubting my outfit choice, I tell myself, “it is what it is,” and I hold my head high and let it go. I must have liked the outfit at some point and fashion is not that deep to care about what other people think about my outfit.

I wanted to wear these pants (in the fall) because I found them at the end of the season and I just loved them. Apparently, they are mom jeans, who would have thunk mom jeans are in style lol. They are really comfortable, because they have the perfect amount of room and they are high waisted, which are my favorite.

Le Black and White Look

Good Day Ladies,

Did you see what I did in the title… (lol). This look screams Paris to me, hence the Le. Ok I am a dork but lets talk about the outfit. 🙂 This outfit is so easy and comfortable. I have been looking for another pair of black Pixie pants for some time now. I did want to find a budget option because I do have the purchased form J.Crew (currently on sale!) a few years ago, but I wanted to find a great pair on a budget. Old Navy has had a very similar pair if you are looking for a cheaper option which is what I am wearing today.

Hi Friends,

How was your Independence Day? I had such a good time! I went over a friends house and we spent the entire evening eating and playing Monopoly! It was a perfect time. At the end of the night there were fireworks… fancy that on Independence Day! Did you do anything fun over the holiday?

About this outfit: lately, I have been traveling up and down 95 more often then usual, I will be traveling this weekend and again at the end of the month. Needless to say I have been living in sweats (shocker I know). I just have to be comfortable when traveling. I like this outfit because it is easy to wear and comfortable. Instead of looking like a bag lady when traveling I like to find a cuter alternative. You  never know you may want to run into that outlet mall as you are driving to you location. I also like to take my shoes off in the car, so wearing these slides I can slip them on and off quickly.
