Feminine & Flirty No Amo Camo






I have been told that I am an oxymoron combination of masculine in personality and feminine in demeanor, and I think this outfit perfectly captures that! I love to pair something rough and tough with something more delicate and ladylike; that's where minor details like the sequin handbag, nude pumps and fuchsia/berry lip color come in. Even though the pattern of the jacket is masculine, the cinched waist makes it a bit more flirty than your average camo cover up.

My accessories always seem to be an afterthought, but they work! I'm obsessed with my Boston coordinate necklace and sequin crossbody. I purchased the crossbody during my college thrift store days and now that I've brought it out I can't wait to incorporate it with more fun looks!

Honorable mention: these. jeans! I can't say enough about the quality or versatility of them. They're perfect! I purchased them at Target months ago, but thanks to the extra pounds I'm currently carrying I've finally gotten use out of them. Had it not been for that, I probably would have kept it simple with my favorite dark wash skinnies. I'm glad I defaulted to a less predictable pair because I think the lighter wash and fraying better compliment the camouflage.

Enjoying Easter in Total Motion!






Easter's here, and it’s time to gear up for the most important event of the day:
The Annual Egg Hunt - or in my case an excuse to pair pastels, prints and textures.

It's been gloomy here in Boston, but I couldn't resist bringing out pretty, pale colors to welcome spring so I grabbed a petal skirt, paired it with a lace tee and floral print boyfriend blazer. To complete the look I powered through with Rockport’s Total Motion pump in Icy Blue.

These pumps are engineered from the inside out and equipped with a built-in sport technology that have you feeling like you're wearing running shoes while rocking trendy heels which means you're never sacrificing style for comfort. They're seriously game-changing!

With a variety of chic styles and eye-catching colors, the Total Motion pumps are everything you’re looking for this Easter (and every occasion thereafter)!

Review: Missguided Cape Body-Con Dress


$58 / source

I'm 5'4, 125 lbs, 34C. I ordered the US 8/UK 12 and the overall fit was perfect. The quality of the dress was nice and thick but not too heavy - perfect for a cool evening.

I'm a professional procrastinator so I waited until the night before vacation to order this for in-store pickup. Thankfully I was able to try it on and leave it behind.


The v-neck opening is so wide that my entire chest was exposed. I tried it on with a tank underneath to see if the dress could be salvaged because I really loved the cape sleeves but the tank made it look cheap.

I would only recommend this to someone with a very small chest (similar to that of the model).

Note: This review is from October 2015 (because as previously stated, I'm procrastinator).

Dating: Gender Roles


I am independent in that I am as resourceful as the sky is blue (or grey depending on the day), and I enjoy providing for myself. I don't fit the bill of the conventional woman - I don't cook and I'm not secretly planning my wedding without even having a fiance nor am I longing for motherhood.

Do I want to be spoiled within reason and according to his/our budget? Absolutely!
But I also want to spoil him!

What the dude is saying doesn't infuriate me one bit. He's old school and that is how things used to be done. 
Keywords: used to be. As in passed tense.

He's not saying he expects his woman to be a stay-at-home maid, mother and sex slave. He's saying that he wants to wine and dine his lady and I genuinely see nothing wrong with that.

Sound off: Is his take too old school for your liking?
