Dressed to a Tee

I hadn’t planned on taking almost 2 weeks to post Statement Tee, Look 2 but between a new work assignment and summertime activities, my blogging goals were demolished. This look is uncomplicated and casual and one you can definitely recreate in your own way. But it’s the details that make the difference.

Statement Tee, Two Ways

In case you missed it, the Statement Tee is making quite the fashion statement. From designer priced to under $10, from rock legends to bucket list destinations to political POVs, the Statement Tee is a quick, chic, and personalized way to update your look. It also happens to be my favorite way to refresh “shop my closet” outfits.

Go Fourth and Be You

Flags, fireworks, frankfurters…however you celebrate, the 4th of July is America’s quintessential summer holiday. And let’s face it, any combination of red, white and blue is one color combo that never gets old. So if you’re looking for a little inspo on how to refresh your summer wardrobe (and maybe a bit of deeper thinking), this post is for you.

Get Pinked!

I don’t know if it’s coming off Valentine’s Day or hoping the Groundhog is right about an early Spring, but I’m thinking pink theses days. It’s a fun, pretty color that’s the perfect antidote to Winter’s head-to-toe black. But since we’re not out of the cold just yet…pink fleece pullover and a pink beanie are wear now options I’m wanting to add to my wardrobe.

Sequin Season


‘Tis the season to sparkle, right? While I’m not one to say no to some shimmer and shine any time, it does feel most appropriate for the days ahead. Especially for New Year’s Eve! With a scene-stealing faux fur jacket like this one, it might be hard to take in just how stunning this skirt is. But trust me, it’s one for the books. And your wardrobe.

One Good Gingham Deserves Another, Part 1

Gingham was on fashion’s sizzle radar last spring and summer (as seen in this post), and it’s back bigger than ever. For this dressed-up look (can you say date night?), I’ve paired two black-and-white separates in different sized checks. I didn’t buy these pieces to wear together, but when fashion kismet strikes, you go for it. That being said, Part 2 of OGGDA is going to feature each of these pieces as the focal point of a more casual look. All of which goes to say, buy (and wear!) what you love. Especially if you love how it expands your fashion horizons. Check!

Bright Stripes, Big City

IMG_3210Yes…that’s my photographer’s shadow. Not a perfect fashion moment, but hey, that’s life. This bright-striped duo has been hanging in my closet since June, and I couldn’t put its blog debut off any longer. Especially since stripes and Summer are made for each other. The cutaway crochet tank and pleated knit skirt are my first Worth New York purchases. It was really fun to work with Lisa, my friend and Worth Stylist, in their airy, elegant New York City showroom. I tried on quite a few things, but in the end loved how these two separates paired up. I think I even surprised Lisa with the look.

Stripes on Stripes

IMG_0768This is definitely a “might be too much but go for it” look. And I’m glad I did. It wasn’t planned, though I was dying to feature this fantastic VB for Target skirt. But for me that’s fashion. You get something new that inspires you, and you let it fly from there. Contrasting stripes (or patterns, like my last Flower Power post) are on the fashion radar, so I just decided to put my spin on it. I also wanted to shoot in front of this really cool new JC street art. So…kismet I guess.
