My wardrobe a few years ago consisted of jeans, shorts, more jeans and a few skirts and dresses here and there. I’ve slowly tried to accumulate more dresses and less jeans, and even though I work from home and don’t have a necessity for slightly more-formal wear, I still find myself reaching for those recently-acquired dresses and skirts. This particular dress was only $20 from Forever 21. Come the warm, summer heat, I’ll wear it sans a jacket, but for now while we’re still experiencing a cool spring, I want to get as much out of layering as possible.
Have a great long weekend, everyone!

A few years ago, I’d never have ventured into mixing prints. I might have done something subtle — like tweed and a small Glen plaid — but never would I have done stripes and paisley. Since beginning my blog, though, and throughout my journey, I’ve quickly come to realize how versatile stripes can be and have become in my wardrobe.
What about you? What print is essential in your wardrobe?
I’m so excited for the long weekend ahead! I have both Friday and Monday off and am looking forward to a refreshing break.

When I find something I love, I buy it in multiple colors. Some people are totally against this strategy, but I just think it’s smart shopping. Take, for example, this shirt and these shorts. I bought two of each — this shirt in navy blue and olive green and these shorts in navy blue and hot pink (which you’ll see tomorrow). I was pleasantly surprised by the Joe Fresh for JC Penney line, and the fit of these shorts (only $19) is perfect. I was also drawn to the faux leather sleeves on this shirt (only $13 from F21) — a small detail to toughen up an otherwise plain shirt.

The last time I wore this dress, I mentioned how bummed I was I didn’t get a picture of it sans jacket because of its neckline. A bold print and an asymmetrical neckline have the power to up a dress from ordinary to something more interesting and eye-catching. Details like that always draw me to certain clothes. I wore this dress to sushi last week. My roommate and I discovered the greatness of LivingSocial, Groupon and Amazon Local for trying out a few new restaurants, including this sushi one. Have you tried any of these sites for finding deals in your city?

After styling my staple of the month (this denim vest) two dressed-up ways (here and here), I wanted something slightly more casual. I picked up this tee from Gap a few weekends ago and love the vibrancy of it paired with these hot pink skinny jeans.
So I’ve paired with vest with a dress, a skirt and jeans. What would you like to see for the last May staple post?
