    Currently Coveting No. 6

    t-shirt | earrings | sneakers | jeans I haven’t done one of these in a hot minute, but I was inspired by these Golden Goose look-alike sneakers (aka dupes)!  Tbh, I never loved the Golden Goose sneakers, because I feel like they look too distressed. I like their design, but I just wasn’t a fan of the price point or the scuff marks.  Tangent aside, I saw these Steve Madden sneakers and I thought I would create an outfit with them.  I paired the sneakers with this adorable ~almost~  rugby style t-shirt and straight legged jeans, both from J. Crew. I’ve been really interested in straight legged jeans lately and…

    Currently Coveting No. 5

    sweater | earrings | watch | headband | sneakers | necklace | jeans Here is a super simple outfit that I wear a variation of practically every day.  I actually bought these jeans, and they were too small! If you have a muscular body type, I would definitely size up or try one of the other cuts of denim. I also love wearing a scarf in my hair. I find that its a such a great way to add a pop of color to your outfit. I like to stick with my neutrals, so scarves are a great way noncommittal to add a pop of color. So you don’t have…

Another way I’ve seen people do this is to use a 72 hour waiting period for purchases under $100 and a week long waiting period for purchases over $100.  3. Make a list If you need something, write…

    My Goal of a Personal Uniform

    Uniforms, I had one when I was in elementary school. Then, I didn’t love it, but I respected its utility. It was nice to not have to make an additional decision when you woke up in the morning. It was simple: On Mondays and Thursdays, I wore a red polo with khakis, on Wednesdays I wore a white button down shirt with a jumper, and on Tuesdays and Fridays, I wore my gym shorts and a khaki skirt. It was simple and easy. Then middle school came and nothing was easy, especially the intricate calculus required for getting dressed for school each morning.  By the time 8th grade rolled around,…
