Summer uniform pt.1: Boyfriend jeans

So, it took me a while to jump on the boyfriend jean bandwagon because I always thought I’d just be drowning in them. What finally converted me? Summers in Texas. Summers in Texas are HOT. Like, hot AF. Skinny jeans are fine if you’re spending your day inside a cold office during the summers, aka…

All black everything

I love wearing black any time (and every time), but black is definitely best in the winter. All-black ensembles look so chic in winter–and they’re so easy to put together. An all-black look is also my go-to when I’m in a pinch and need to throw on an outfit in like, five minutes. Nothing goes…

Things I’ve learned this year…

2017 was an interesting year. I learned a lot. Here’s some of it: Love is respect. People are not made to be alone. We depend on each other. People who think it’s better to be alone because “people are dumb/ignorant/don’t get me” are unwise. People who think friendship and relationships are not a necessary part…

Review – Star Wars: The Last Jedi

After a week of waiting and scrupulously avoiding social media lest I come across spoilers, I finally had the chance to watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Overall, I enjoyed it and I think it is absolutely worth watching (maybe twice or thrice!). Read on for more of what I liked, disliked, and questions that…

Copycats

I’ve just finished reading this really great article by James Allworth, called “It’s Not Women Who Should Lean In; It’s Men Who Should Step Back.” Allworth gives his take on Sheryl Sandberg’s book, Lean In, which discusses the obstacles women face when trying to work towards positions of leadership, and what women (and men) can…

The blues

  Abercrombie Fitch plaid shirt / River Island biker jacket / Citizens of Humanity jeans / Jimmy Choo black flat shoes / Chloé leather shoulder bag / Kendra Scott yellow gold ring   It feels a little silly, talking about clothes in light of what’s been happening around the country. I’d like to encourage you to do whatever…

To be or not to be….like one of the guys

I’m a huge fan of DC comics. Show Arrow and Comic Batman are my favorites. (What can I say? I like the broody types.) I recently came across an article picking apart and analyzing the relationship between Harley Quinn and the Joker. In general, it’s pretty widely acknowledged that both the movie and comic relationships…

A little flare

Over sized sweater / Frame flare jeans / Christian Louboutin short boots / Madewell leather tote / Kendra Scott rose gold jewelry   I didn’t actually warm up to wearing flares again (not since my junior high/high school days) until I saw some pictures on Pinterest of flares being styled in ways that looked a lot more…

She-wolf

The row sweater / Burberry button coat / Citizens of Humanity skinny leg jeans / Valentino pointed shoes / NARS Cosmetics creamy lipstick If you see me in person (or even in pictures), you’re not likely to get intimidated. I stand at a whopping 5’1, and my RBF isn’t always on point. (On some days, I am…

Fall is coming

Abercrombie Fitch plaid top / River Island tan jacket / Citizens of Humanity skinny jeans / Christian Louboutin black booties / Prada tote bag / Silver ring / La Perla sunglasses It’s no secret that fall is my favorite season. Halloween, pumpkin spice everything, crisp cool air….I love it all. While I definitely wear black year-round, when…
