The Dress For Work and Weekend






Hey everyone!! I've been meaning to share this dress for a while but I finally got around to taking pictures! The thing I love most about this dress is that is so versatile. I can wear it to work with heels or with sandals to wear on the weekend or you could even pair it with ballet flats! I always try my best to make my clothes multi purpose but when working in a corporate environment it can be tricky so when I find pieces like this I know I've hit the jackpot. This dress is from JCrew and I've been loving their stuff for work to weekend pieces so I've linked other dresses from them below!

Totally random but I picked up Reese Witherspoon's book today at Target and I can't wait to read it! I'm really trying to get back into the habit of reading and I've been thinking of possibly doing book reviews here on the blog. What're your recent favorite books? Let me know down below in the comments or on Instagram!

Football Game Style: What To Wear







Happy Monday! This weekend was a productive yet fun weekend which was just what I needed. Sometimes you need really productive weekends and other times you need to let loose while others you just need to be lazy and barley leave your house. This weekend I just needed a little bit of everything, anyone else with me?

Kyle and I shot this look on Saturday when we were driving down Melrose looking for a good blog picture location when I just asked him to pull off on a side street. I love the palm trees in the background in these photos, very LA vibes lol. Unfortunately both my dress and shoes are not available anymore but I've linked similar and the companies are the same!

Today I wanted to talk about football season well actually I wanted to talk about what to wear for football season because I'm WAY more into that than the actual sport! I love to get festive but I also like to stick to my style so I typically try to incorporate the team's colors into what I'm wearing like a skirt or a patterned dress. I don't like to go crazy dressing up for a game day because throughout the day I want to be able to do other things and feel comfortable doing so. That being said, I've linked dresses, skirts, tops, etc. below in various colors that might work for your game day whether you're actually going to the game or just watching it on your couch! Also, I tried to keep everything under $60.

Clean Beauty: 3 Items To Switch Over First



Happy Friday! Who's ready for another weekend!? I know I am! Last weekend I was in bed sick so this weekend I want to be out and about. I think I'm going to grab drinks with a friend and maybe Kyle and I will go to Carlsbad but not sure yet. I know I could definitely use some beach time!

Anyways, today's post is one that I've wanted to do for a while but honestly keep forgetting to actually put together so here we are actually putting it into action! Clean beauty is something I'm very passionate about but honestly it can be SO overwhelming. I actually wrote a blog post a little over a year ago talking fairly in depth about what clean beauty is and I linked articles with even more information, check that post out here! Since switching over your beauty products to more "clean" ones can be a little intimidating I thought I'd share three products I think you should switch over first. I'm hoping to make this a little mini series where every few weeks I can share a few more products to switch over so it feels more gradual!

1. Body lotion

Your skin is your biggest organ and it absorbs everything you put on it that's why clean beauty is so important. Who wants their skin absorbing toxic chemicals!? Since you put body lotion over the majority of your body it makes sense to switch that one first! I find clean (or as clean as I can) body lotion at Whole Foods most of the time but I also really like the Honest Company Lotion which you can find online, at Target (sometimes), and Whole Foods.

2. Foundation

Similar to body lotion, foundation covers a large portion of skin and sits directly on top of your pores so your skin is soaking in a lot of that foundation! I have found that it is relatively easy to find "clean" tinted moisturizers and BB creams (check out Sephora's clean beauty section online, it is so helpful!) but finding an actual foundation with good coverage is a challenge. Right now I'm using the one by Lawless and I have to say I love it so far!

3. Lipstick/Gloss

Okay I tried to find a statistic on how much lipstick/gloss we consume for you all but I couldn't find a legit enough one BUT we lick our lips (that grossed me out to write that lol) constantly throughout the day or maybe you bite your lip and when we're eating our food touches our lips. Basically I'm not sure the exact amount of lip product we consume but we do consume it regularly. So again, imagine digesting all those nasty chemicals in lip products. No good. I suggest as you run out of each lipstick, gloss, liquid lipstick replace it with a cleaner alternative. Click the Sephora link above to check out what they have on their site or I've heard great things about the Lawless liquid lipsticks!

Hope this was helpful!

Wardrobe Essential: T-Shirt Dress





Hey everyone!! Today I wanted to share an item of clothing I've recently become obsessed with: this t-shirt dress. I'm not sure how I stumbled upon this particular one, it might've been just browsing Nordstrom or through another blogger but either way I'm happy it's in my closet now! Recently, I've become obsessed with easy and comfortable dresses I can throw on after work or on the weekends. My work is business casual but I feel like it leans more business-y so Monday-Friday I'm in trousers, blouses and heels, most of the time, so outside of work I want no thought outfits that are comfortable. This dress, in particular, is $39 and comes in 2 colors (it originally also came in green but I'm assuming that color sold out!). I think Kyle is tired of seeing me wear this dress because I literally change into just about everyday after work and this entire weekend I wore it lol!

Below I linked other super cute t-shirt dresses to provide more options because I think this is a wardrobe staple! Wear it with wedges, sandals, sneakers, etc. and it is such a cute look! P.S. the wallet linked above is similar to mine in the photo because mine is old.

Fall Staple: Corduroy Skirt



Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm continuing the fall theme from Monday's post in to today's blog post. I have had the same corduroy skirt for the past 2-3 years and I've found myself time and time again wearing it all throughout the fall. I never thought I'd be such a corduroy fan, it always felt very childish and 90's (not that I don't love 90's fashion). That obviously changed once I actually owned a piece of corduroy clothing again and I realized it's a super cute trend for fall!

My exact skirt isn't available anymore but I've linked other skirts and corduroy items below! My two favorite ways to wear my corduroy skirt is either with sneakers or booties. I love that I can dress it up or down depending on the top and the shoes. I've linked a pair of corduroy pants below and they might be kinda pushing my style envelope but I'm also kinda into it! Anyone else!?

XOXO, Maddy 

Pre-Fall Style Shopping List


Happy Monday! I've been such a slacker on creating/posting content but I've got stuff coming your way, promise!

Today, I wanted to talk about pre-fall style! Pre-fall style wasn't something I had really thought about before until, well, literally this month. This whole idea of pre-fall fashion wasn't really a thing to me until I realized so many people were talking about fall fashion but it is still so hot in LA right now! As I've been looking at fall items to add to my closet I've realized that instead of sweaters and jeans I should look at tank tops and dresses but in fall colors. This way I'm being practical (not trying to sweat my booty off) but I'm also introducing fall into my wardrobe.

I've shared some items that have stood out to me while browsing Nordstrom and there are so many good things there right now!

XOXO, Maddy



Work Outfit Inspiration


Outfit: Shirt // Pants // Shoes

Happy Monday! I've been a terrible blogger lately but I promise I'm going to get better! Kyle and I just moved into our apartment in LA and last week was my first week of work. All good and amazing things but boy has it been busy. I swear I blinked and last week was gone in an instant. Also, throwback to long hair in the pic above! The tee, pants, shoes have been my go-to's for interviews and my first few days of work. I just got some new items today that I plan on sharing in case you all need more inspo! Until I shoot those outfits I've linked lots of inspiration below. 

XOXO, Maddy
