Despite the outfits that I post on this blog, I don’t always like to wear super eye-catching things on a regular basis. Take for example this fabulous “Kaboom” skirt from Top Shop. Since I’ve had it, I’ve probably only worn it 3-4 times (sadly decreasing the “value per wear”, but that’s another story). I also have to admit that I have not even mustered up the courage to wear this to work yet! Maybe one day, but for now, this will have to be one of those inspirational pieces that I’m saving for a braver day.
I’m generally not a superstitious person, but sometimes my culture can get the best of me. Yesterday was Chinese New Year and as traditions go, whatever you do on the first day of the new year is supposed to determine the rest of your year, which is usually why some people will take the day off or maybe just taking it easy that day. Although I don’t really believe in this superstition, it still crosses my mind throughout the day – what I do, what I wear, what I eat, how much I work, etc. And with the new year officially starting, I decided to try to look “professional” and less casual at work today. I know this isn’t going to last long, but at least it’s a good way to start!
Valentine’s Day may have just passed, but I sense with all the extra Valentine’s candy that’s been showing up at work, love might still be in the air? Even though I purchased this skirt back in December, it was practically screaming to be worn around Valentine’s Day with all the red and pink floral. Paired with another “love” of mine, it’s the perfect romance of Star Wars and fashion!
Valentine’s Day can be one of those holidays that’s both dreaded and loved. There’s the pressure of finding the perfect gift, planning a romantic evening, and sometimes just finding someone to make plans with! With enough to think about during this time of year, hopefully there’s one thing that you won’t have to worry too much about – and that’s the question of what to wear! Today’s I’ve partnered with Tee Fury to bringing you not one, but six fun outfits for those geeky ladies who don’t want to ditch their favorite tees just because it’s Valentine’s Day. Whether you have a date with a significant other or a date with your best friends, hopefully one of these outfits will help you get date ready in no time!
It’s easy to get caught up in comparing yourself to others and that’s definitely one thing I’ve always struggled with. Sometimes doing so is motivating, but at the same time, it can also be discouraging as it might just end up making you feel like you will never be as successful/rich/pretty/etc. as others. Because of this realization, I’m constantly trying to make sure I focus on doing what I like and what I’m passionate about, rather than doing things only because other people expect you to or because you think, “Maybe if I do this, I will be more popular!”. One thing I’ve tried to focus on this week is Continue reading
Usually when I put together an outfit, jewelry is the thing I put on once I figure out what I’m wearing. But today, it was the complete opposite as I searched for something to wear with this amazing Princess Leia necklace. As I tried to look for something a little more “proper”, I ended up going with this peter pan collared dress to complete the look. I’m definitely a big fan of peter pan collars – and mixed with some vintage inspired jewelry, it’s a nice balance between a little Wednesday Addams youthfulness and old-era fashion.
It may seem like I’m always dressing up for work or going out, but when it comes to days where I’m just relaxing or hanging out with friends, I guarantee you that you’ll find me in an outfit like this. I love a good throwback tee and Peanuts definitely takes me back to the days of Sunday comics, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and Vince Guaraldi tunes. Paired with a hooded puffer vest, I’m in my ultimate comfort zone. Vests are definitely one of my go-to items in the winter – they’re warm without the bulk and easily go with everything! What’s your go-to winter item?
