I’m currently still in Orcas Island with my family and it’s been pretty rainy and gray outside, which I am of course used to seeing that I am from Seattle. But for fun, I thought I would pull together a quick and stylish outfit to hopefully inspire you during the inevitable upcoming drippy March and April showers. xo
Hey guys, happy Thursday! So today’s post is all about this little tweed dress from J.Crew. I spotted it during my recent sale shopping haul and thought that it would be the perfect dress to style up and show how to wear five different ways. I know many of you have to go into an office and even though I work from home, I will have meetings where I need to look polished and professional, so I thought this dress fit the bill!
If you would like to see the video version of this remix, head on over to my YouTube channel this morning (make sure to subscribe too!) and you’ll get to see all five outfits up close and in action, plus some bonus footage where I introduce my new fur baby, Susan! xoxo

Base Look #1: Tweed Dress: J.Crew
Hi guys! It’s Tuesday and you know what that means…that’s right, a new YouTube video goes up today! It will be up by 12EST and I will be sharing what I picked up during a recent shopping haul from J.Crew. I shopped their sale and ended up leaving with a handful of things that were an extra 40 percent off the sale price! I love it when I luck out like that.
Anyway, I would love for you guys to check out the video, but in the meantime, I thought I would show two of the pieces that I bought (a t-shirt and scarf) and how I created a fairly simple, but cute outfit around them.
I based the look around my new grey “Dancing” tee and my favorite slouchy, boyfriend jeans from Citizens of Humanity. Next, I added a structured navy blazer from Zara (I also have this one from J.Crew and love it, plus it’s on sale right now!) and slipped on my new collegiate-looking scarf. Lastly, I finished off the look with my trusty camel overcoat from Zara (mine is from last year, but here is a similar style on sale at J.Crew) and new navy booties from IRO. The overall look is a relaxed and slouchy look perfect for the weekend.

Hi everyone and happy Thursday! I can’t believe the week is almost over. Where did it go?
So, yesterday was actually almost bearable as it was a balmy 45 degrees! Everything was sort of drippy and melting but it was a nice change from the freezing temperatures we’ve been experiencing.
I wore this outfit to run a few errands with Casey before heading back home to edit more YouTube videos. I tell you, YouTube is a whole other animal! But I am excited to learn more about it and get into a solid rhythm with it where I actually feel like I know what I’m doing.
And speaking of YouTube, my newest video will be up by 1Pm EST so go check it out! And thank you for all your kind and supportive words regarding my first video – I so appreciate it. You guys are the bomb.com. xo
I’ve always worn dresses with tights during the colder months. But lately, I’ve been very into layering turtlenecks underneath as well. It’s the perfect way to make a summery dress even more wearable in winter! Plus, it gives off an ever-so-slightly retro vibe, which I totally dig. :)

Yesterday we had another snowfall, and despite the fact I’m so over snow in general and am ready for spring, it was quite beautiful and very peaceful. Casey and I ventured out in it for a quick minute to grab some coffee, and the sweet man that he is, took these photos so that I could share this outfit with you guys. (I wore it out to dinner last night but seeing that it was dark I couldn’t capture it properly.)
Hat: Rag & Bone / Jacket: TopShop (mine is no longer available, but I love this faux fur mink option, which also happens to be on sale!) / Vest: Zara (mine is super old, but here is a cute and affordable version from Nordstrom) / Turtleneck: F21 (more colors here – plus J.Crew is having a great sale with the code SWEETSALE) / Jeans: Paige (mine are from a few years ago but here is a similar style available at Nordstrom) / Booties: Forever 21 / Purse: Lauren Ralph Lauren (this was a gift – here is a similar style) / Lipstick: L’Oreal
Hey guys, happy Monday! Sorry for the light posting last week. :/ Between fashion week and it being bitterly cold out, I fell behind with documenting my outfits, so sorry about that! Anyway, things are back to normal now and I think it’s supposed to be a tad warmer this week (a very balmy 40 degrees on Wednesday) which is good news in terms of taking photos outside. :)
I love doing surprise pattern layering, like in this case where I wore a wintery floral print blazer under this bold, large scale plaid jacket and you would never know unless I removed my coat. It’s almost like two different outfits in one!
