Little Navy Floral Dress from Dezzal

Olisi Dress

I’m a dress girl, through and through. So when Dezzal reached out to me about sending me a piece or two, is it really that surprising that I chose this navy floral dress?

Let me go ahead and read your mind for you: no, no it isn’t.

Navy and Pink Outfit for Back to School

Navy and Pink Outfit

One of my all-time favorite color combinations is navy and pink. It’s one of those color combos that works in really any season, and a navy and pink outfit always just happens to look ever so chic!

Pretty much my entire apartment is navy and pink (it’s dreadfully obvious that there is no live-in man in the picture!), so is it really any surprise that my closet is basically stock-full of different ways to create this color combination?

Silk Cape Blouse

Amanda Uprichard Amelie Top

It’s so weird to be in business casual. I’ve actually never had to wear business casual for a job – every job I’ve ever had was casual casual… so it’s super weird to be stocking up on blazers and non-denim pants for the first time in my life. Every new addition to my closet has to be able to be worn as a part of a business casual outfit or it is not going home with me (sad times, off-the-shoulder tops!).

As soon as I spotted this silk cape blouse, I knew it would be perfect for both school and for play. I actually wore it twice in a week: once as a part of a business casual outfit, with this skirt and my favorite nude heels… and then once for some casual brunchin’ with my friends (as seen above and below!).

Transitioning to Fall (While Wearing a Summer Dress)

How to wear a summer dress in the fall

Well… Happy Monday there, friend!

Today is my first day of my MBA program and I’m pretty sure I’m more nervous for it than I was for my first day of kindergarten. All last week, I was in orientation with my new classmates… all day, every day. I’m happy to report that, despite a shaky first day, I’m already really enjoying myself and I’ve made a few friends.

I really do sound like a kindergartener!

My Bedroom Reveal & A Giveaway!

My Bedroom Reveal

I immediately moved out on my own upon graduating college four years ago. And purchased a room full of furniture. It was a lot of dark colors – the colors I had primarily worn in college in the northeast. Dark colors, brass grommets, and a surprising quantity of black furniture (particularly surprising since I no longer even own that color).

Obviously, since that fresh-from-the-frozen-tundra-of-upstate-NY time, my style has slightly changed. In case you missed my living room reveal, my apartment now embraces the fact that I’m a single girl who lives alone. It’s girly as all hell, y’all. There’s pink all over the place, fabulous fashion prints, and even a giant picture of ballerinas. My room did not go with the general theme of my home. I desperately needed a bedroom redesign.

Spinach Lasagna Rolls

Spinach Lasagna Rolls Recipe

If you know me, then you probably know that I’m a pasta fiend. Truly, the fastest way to my heart is by feeding me carbs. So is it really any surprise that one of my favorite go-to dishes is this spinach lasagna rolls recipe?

This dish is one of my favorites to make because a) it only takes about 20 minutes of prep time (and requires very basic tools), b) it makes enough to have leftovers for a week, and c) it has spinach in it so you’re basically eating a salad. That’s how that works, right?
