This summer, I’ve been on the hunt for easy dresses I can throw on during days when it’s way too hot to think about what to wear. I found this one at JC Penney a couple weekends ago — on clearance, no less. The Joe Fresh collection there has some amazing summer prints, and this one in particular contrasts so well with my June staple of the month (my orange wedges).

I love mornings and my morning ritual; it’s probably my favorite part of the day. But my second favorite part of the day is the afternoon, which is usually the time I get out of the apartment and head to a local café (or Starbucks) to do a few hours of work. Lately I’ve been trying to get more use out of my heels, and even though they’re certainly dressier than most people dress in my locale, I enjoy that added bit of height and confidence boost heels give. Are you a heels girl?
Have a great weekend!

This blazer was my March staple of the month, but I had to give it one last wear before the warm weather came. (See one of my March staple posts here.) I did something different from all my other March posts and paired it with a similar-colored, similar-flowered blouse underneath. This would be a fun office look with a pencil skirt in lieu of denim or a fun date-night look with a pair of matching shorts!
Jacket: Banana Republic | Lace Shirt: Macy’s | Denim: Elle | Wedges: Target | Bag: Brahmin (c/o Vogue) | Necklace: Macy’s
Luckily, we’ve had cool enough weather lately that wearing jackets isn’t out of the question yet. This Banana Republic one is a fairly recent purchase that I bought on super clearance. I’m not usually one for any shade of white, and when I bought this jacket, I promised myself I’d have to wear it with color to brighten up my pale skin. I sacrificed color for a mix of textures (tweed and lace), but the result is classic and a little edgy — and I like it.

While I tend to gravitate toward more structured pieces for the majority of my wardrobe, I will make the occasional exception for something billowy. This blouse has the ideal amount of flow and easiness to it, and the best thing is that it needs nothing more than a simple silhouette (skinny jeans) to complement that ease. It’s certainly not a complex outfit, but sometimes the simplest of outfits are the ones that work the best — especially when you work from home but don’t want to wear pajamas or sweats.
