Top: thrifted. Dress and Bag: H&M. Pumps: Bakers.

Today I kept it simple and classy with a magenta top layered over a yellow sundress, matched with one of my favorite (but rarely worn) pumps, which feature a mish-mash of fruits. I think the print freshens up the sophisticated shape quite nicely, and makes them perfect for summer parties. The ankle strap is an on-trend detail that makes the heels much more stable and comfortable as well. To finish the look, I added my new black tote and a matching chain necklace and bracelet.

Til next time,
Laura

Dress: TJ Maxx. Blazer: H&M. Wedges: Aldo. Purse: Target.

Today was insanely hot, so to go with this summery weather I wore bright colors and clean, modern lines. The look hits some key trends this spring–lucite heels and cutouts–paired with bursts of color for an overall “Kate Spade preppy” feel.

Hi everyone–long time! My photographer (boyfriend) was out of town last week and sadly I wasn’t able to take any photos. I’m back in action now, though, so get ready for more bright, springy posts to come!

A few years back I was obsessed with the floral trend, but lately I’ve been put off by its overtly girly look. However, recently I’ve come to love it again–especially on pants!–but this time I’m wearing the trend in more of an urban, edgy style rather than the youthful, girly look of my past. I like to think it’s more sophisticated and college-appropriate.

Thanks for stopping by,

Blazer, Jeans, Heels, Jewelry and Sunnies: Forever 21. Top: vintage.

Today (Saturday) was a good day for me; I wore this 60s-reminiscent look featuring many new items from my recent spring shopping excursion to do another go-round at the mall. My boyfriend and I left with a few pairs of shoes and full bellies from eating at the Cheesecake Factory, which is easily my favorite chain restaurant. Yum! I really love how the outfit and post turned out; please let me know what you think! Have a safe and relaxing weekend everyone!

Peace,
Laura

I love this new mustard yellow coat that I just picked up from H&M. It’s a great pop of color on dull, wintery days. Have a great week everyone!

Coat, Cardigan and Purse: H&M. Tank and Jeans: Forever 21. Tank (under): United Colors of Benetton. Booties: MIA.

When in doubt, I always pair up something printed, something colored, and something neutral. I suppose it’s my “fashion formula”. It’s just enough to make an outfit interesting without being overdone. I particularly like my printed tank (it has wild cats on it!)

In other news, today marks the 1 month anniversary of my blog! I would like to thank my subscribers, anyone who’s taken the time to leave a comment or like a post, and those who stop by just to look from time to time. I really appreciate the support. Here’s to many more months!

Happy hump day!

Vest, Scarf, Hat and Belt: Forever 21. Sweater, Coat and Gloves: H&M. Jeans: Old Navy. Booties: Gojane.com. Bag: Urban Outfitters.

Today was the coldest I’ve ever experienced in DC, so I bundled up in winter essentials¬†reminiscent¬†of the Maine wilderness, which is where I spent many chilly months exploring as a kid. The fur, plaid, and LL Bean Duck Boot inspired heels remind me of how great my childhood was, and how one day (not anytime TOO soon) I would like to live in Maine again.

I would also like to give special thanks to Luke, my boyfriend, who is responsible for almost all of the photographs on my blog. I couldn’t do it without him. Happy 6 months baby!

As always, thanks for reading!
