Dress Code{Contrast Collar Dress + Gingham Coat}

Business Casual



{ZARA Contrast Collar Dress (similar here and here), J. CREW Gingham Coat and Leather Flats, H&M Rhinestone Brooch (similar), RALPH LAUREN Bucket Bag}

While I do enjoy experimenting with my style, I always find myself coming back to classics, slightly preppy looks – like this simple schoolgirl-inspired contrast-collar dress and tailored wool coat. I recently had to head out of town unexpectedly with only 30 minutes to pack. With no time to spare, I reached for the easy, no-fail pieces in my closet like this dress and it’s grey counterpart. Now that I think about it, I probably have 5-6 versions of this outfit in different colors and sleeve lengths… and that suits me just fine. To keep the look from being boring, I added red lips (on my face and on my dress, lol!) for an unexpected touch of color.

And what about you – do you have a favorite fallback or style that you come back to again and again?

Hooray {or Nay} for Stirrup Leggings?

Business Casual, My Style

{ZARA Bell Sleeve Jacket, J. CREW Striped Turtleneck, H&M Stirrup Pants, CAMBRIDGE SATCHEL Tote, MANOLO BLAHNIK Pumps}

I’m officially on the bell sleeve bandwagon with no signs of getting off anytime soon.

Since the coat makes such a statement, I decided to keep the rest of my outfit pretty simple with a striped turtleneck and black stirrup leggings. Speaking of stirrups…

I’ve been traveling back to my hometown of Detroit more recently as of late, and it’s been incredible to see the city transform a little more each time I visit. Old stately homes are being restored to their former glory, and the downtown area is springing back to life. The weather gods smiled upon us on our last trip, and the temps climbed to an unheard of 70 degress! If you’ve ever experienced a typical Michigan winter, then you know exactly how HUGE (and rare) that is. So of course, I ditched my tights and headed to one of my favorite spots in the city – Belle Isle. And what could be a more fitting outfit for such a place than bell sleeves?!

I know a lot of ladies have been on the fence about bell sleeves (because accidentally dragging your outfit through spaghetti sauce is no fun), but this is one bandwagon that I’m riding wholeheartedly.
