The Skirt

Note to self: outfit photos before going out to dinner, not after. But I couldn't resist showing off my new favorite item of clothing, this sequin pencil skirt, which I have been wearing with everything. Denim shirt? Comfy sweater? Sweater with zebra on it? Check. I highly recommend adding one to your closet life.


Mirror Selfies

I am in love with these booties. Especially since they were under $30. Run to your closest Burlington, ladies, because they have a fantastic selection of boots for crazy low prices. And now, 2 bonus outfits that are only documented in these Myspace-esque mirror selfies:

Winter Wear and Hair

What is your cold-weather layering strategy? Lately I am all about the long-sleeved tee underneath sweater combo. I bought this sweater-robe to wear immediately postpartum when I knew I'd be having visitors and not feel like putting on actual clothing, and I'm still pretty much living in it on days when I don't need to be in front of a class. Also, have you tried this ponytail trick? Gamechanger. Hello, cascading mermaid hair with no effort whatsoever. I'm trying to up my hair game since I usually just pull it into a bun or ponytail, but if all else fails, I may just revert to my pixie (sorry, hubs).


Like a Rock Star

Hello, H&M dressing room. While you didn't yield anything for me to purchase, you did provide me a full-length mirror to document this little number, combining my favorite boots + jacket + sweater. Some days I'm a little bit country, but this day, I was definitely a little bit of rock n' roll.


Fall Flowers

Still here, friends? I got a new phone last month, and the case has a rounded bottom so perching the phone atop a flat surface and snapping photos is a no-go. There goes my very tech savvy method of photography. Rawr.

Anyway, here is an outfit from last month. I layered a summer dress with a cardigan and jean jacket, which is my go-to fall combination. I'm kind of in love with these earrings, which add a fun little punch to each shake of my head. We're busy gearing up for my brother-in-law's wedding next week; the little man sure looks suave in a tux! I'll be sure to share pictures of my dress with you all... if it comes back from the tailor in time, that is. Fingers crossed, friends.


Green Giant

I love giant sweaters. I especially love this one, which has a giant collar to match its size. I bought it last year while mildly pregnant, wore it 'til babytumbledown was born, and am wearing it now belted to conceal how floppy it is around my midsection. Paired with boots, bare legs and a white pencil skirt, I welcomed the best of seasons to come while hanging on to one last taste of summer.


Tangled Up in Blue

{striped dress: Target // blazer: Ross // bow flats: c/o surfdome // blue drop earrings: Burlington }

On research-at-home days, I aim for a balance between comfort and not-pajamas. This semester, I find myself on campus most mornings, returning home for afternoons of reading/grading. This look worked for both morning lecture and afternoon reading, sans blazer, because while it may look graphic and neat, this jersey dress is as comfortable as a nightgown. 

Speaking of comfort, say hello to these adorable flats that just so happen to accent the blue stripe in my dress rather perfectly. When I was contacted by UK company Surfdome for a review, I gravitated toward this pair, seeking a neutral flat with solid construction for my pavement-pounding commute (I face either taking a car, a bus, and another bus, or a car, bus and 13-minute walk. I usually opt for the walk, and have destroyed more than one pair of shoes recently).  Cute and comfy, these totally fit the bill. They have tons of shoe options here, including brands I haven't seen stateside, so if you're looking for a change from your standard shoe-fare, I'd definitely check out their site.
