Buttoned Up/Buttoned Down

Dress: B.B. Dakota / Shoes: Chinese Laundry (similar)/ Clutch: Ross Dress For Less / Sunglasses: Wildfox

Maybe it’s because I simply love denim and how easy it is to dress up or down, but there is something about this BB Dakota dress that has me completely head over heels! Well, quite a few somethings to be honest. It’s one of those rare pieces that fit me like a glove and I can’t find one single thing I dislike about it. The material, the cut, the length, the buttons down the front, even the little pockets in the front all combine to make the perfect dress! Not since those Minkpink jeans have I been so tempted to cheat on my little challenge and splurge–my 30th birthday is coming up…does it count as cheating if I buy it as a birthday gift to myself?

Remix Rematch

A black moto jacket is a piece that can elevate even the simplest outfit.

A black leather jacket it a closet staple that I feel every woman (and man) should own. It’s an item that will never go out of style and can be worn a million different ways–as proof from the photos above. It’s a piece that can elevate the simplest of outfits (i.e. a white t-shirt and jeans) from ‘blah’ to cool-girl chic. Whether you’re looking for something with faux leather or real, fun details or one more streamlined, remember it’s all about fit! If you’re looking for a piece to really invest in, make sure that you absolutely love it before dropping the dough, but I guarantee if you do, you’ll reach for it time and time again!
