Hola & happy Thursday (just had to double check what day it was, nbd). During Thanksgiving break, I had a fun little photoshoot on the golf course in one of my new favorite dresses. I totally got distracted in sharing these photos (Finals week, I’m lookin at you), but I really liked the different background. Shooting at golden hour always just adds something extra special to any OOTD photoshoot. It’s especially great for winter days where there isn’t a whole lot of sunshine and colorful flora to work with.
This dress is definitely more ‘tea time’ appropriate than ‘tee time’, but hey, why not? Though I would probably not wear this outfit for a round of golf, I do have to admit I’ve been wearing the heck out of this dress this past month. I actually own it in two different patterns now, and I like that’s kind of a ‘no brainer’ dress than I can throw on & go. I find the dress to be very flattering and surprisingly versatile for winter. I paired it with black tights, black over the knee boots, and a velvet choker necklace for church and dinner with my family. However, I think it would look awesome with a black leather jacket + tall booties for a night out or with a black fur coat/vest on a super chilly day. I really like the way the navy velvet choker paired with the dress (though my mom originally asked me if I was wearing a turtleneck under my dress?). I think it adds a really different, on-trend vibe.
So I officially finished my second to last semester of college (ahh!!), and I can’t wait to head home this weekend to see my fam. On Wednesday, we will be heading off to Dubai, so let me know if you have any movie/tv show/music recommendations for the mega long flight! I hope you’re having a fantastic week (and staying warm!).

Hello & happy Friday! Can you believe this week is already over? What I am even more in shock over is the fact that my summer internship is over. It went by so flippin quick. As you may know, I had the opportunity to intern for Oracle in Silicon Valley this summer. It was incredible. Incredible may actually be an understatement. Today was my official last day, and I may or may not have cried.
For my last day of work, I wore my very favorite office-friendly dress. In fact, this may be my favorite dress I own. I can’t even count the number of times I have worn it over the past few months. After stealing it from my mom’s closet for weeks, she finally let me keep it in my closet and take it to California. And boy, do I LOVE it. Not only is it comfy, but it’s so easy to just throw on and go. For work, I paired it with my favorite flats. To make it more ‘night-ready’, I threw on my favorite black booties to dress it down a bit + a hint of edge. For dinner, my dad and I headed to Lemonade in Palo Alto. I heard countless rave reviews about it, so I decided to check it out for myself. It was absolutely amazing! If you have a Lemonade near you, it’s a must-go. It’s such a unique concept, and the food was delicious. My favorite thing there? The lemonade, of course.
Happy Wednesday! Do you ever have a specific piece in your closet that you love, but just haven’t worn yet? That piece for me was this amazing flutter sleeve dress. It sat in my closet for weeks and weeks before I finally found the opportunity to wear it. For a night out with friends, I paired it with my favorite lace up sandals and yellow sunnies. It also looks amazing with neutral booties for fall. Best part about this dress? It’s currently on sale! I hope you all are having a fantastic week so far!
Pretty in pink.. but better in blue. I always seem to gravitate towards blue pieces in the same way it seems most people opt for the ever-so-classic black. I love black, don’t get me wrong, but there’s just something about blue that is so relaxing and fun at the same time. I also feel like it’s very universally flattering (unlike black, which is a color I tend to avoid when I am in dire need a serious tan). I have a confession to make, friends. I may or may not have snatched this dress from my mom’s closet. When I saw this blue & breezy Free People beauty hanging up, I just had to ‘borrow’ it (sorry mom, ily!). This floral mini dress is beyond comfy, and it’s incredibly lightweight, making it perfect for the warm (and sometimes sticky) months ahead. My favorite part about this dress though? It’s easy. It’s that dress that is your constant ‘go-to’. It doesn’t require much thought or contemplation. It’s easy to just throw on, go, and conquer the day. A day of shopping? Pair it with neutral or metallic sandals and a crossbody purse. Brunch with the girls? Lace-up sandal heels and a clutch are a must. This dress also comes in black, so yay for options! I know I will definitely be wearing this dress weekly during the summer. It’s just so adorable!
Hello friends! It’s finally Thursday, and the weekend is almost here. There’s nothing I love more than spending my Saturday cheering on the Rebs! I absolutely love fall gamedays, so I thought I would share my new favorite gameday piece with y’all. When I stumbled upon this tunic on Free People, I knew I
wanted needed it in my closet. I paired this flowy, floral tunic with my favorite fringed booties and bold lipstick. Because it is technically a tunic, I had a hard time selecting a size because I knew I wanted to wear it as a dress. I decided to go for a ‘large’ to avoid the risk of it being too short! I think it could definitely look great as a top paired with jeans or shorts. Even though this piece is patterned, I find that it is so versatile and can be worn in a variety of ways!
Thank you so much for checking out my blog! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
Who else is ready for the weekend? Usually, I’m one for dressing head to toe in bright, neon hues. However, I decided to borrow my sister’s muted Free People tee to try something different. To keep with the muted feel, I paired the top with some off-white shorts and bone colored sandals. I also added my favorite Rebecca Minkoff purse because it really adds something fun to the simplest outfits. I’ve been loving fringe this season!
