Tiered Dress

Happy Friday! It’s been awhile, so I’m going to ease back in with a short post! I recently discovered two things: the tiered dress and POSH Boutique in Enid. Both of which I love! Fear not, if you don’t live in Enid – check out Olive & Oak online, they have similar styles of this dress! (TJ Maxx also carries this brand, so you might as well be looking for it next time you go!) The tiered dress is pretty flattering and right now, it’s everywhere. I put a simple Quartz Necklace with it (still deciding whether or not to make some for the shop) and a mint colored Rebecca Minkoff Purse, which is my new obsession! And you can’t overlook those awesome shoes either, which I got from Target…. a little crazy right? Or not, Target surprises me every day! (Err, not every day, because I live an hour from the closest one) Where to shop: Similar Dress: LOFT Similar Shoes: Nordstrom Similar Purse: Rebecca Minkoff For information on the Necklace contact us at BindhiandBrutus@gmail.com

Tuesday Stripes

Today I wore a sweatshirt and stretchy pants to work.  Thank you LOFT for making this possible. Why not take advantage of a time where most shops are making fancy sweatshirts, and wear them to work? A cropped sweatshirt is easiest to dress up. Paired with a white dress shirt or a chambray button down, you have a work appropriate look.

When it gets a little warmer I will probably pair this look with a pencil skirt, but today, stretchy pants. The Ponte Legging is my new best friend (extra points for a leather detail).

And of course colored heels. I highly suggest the pumps at Clarks Shoes, I could literally walk in them for hours. (I might have them in 4 colors, but who’s counting?)

Size mention: I bought a Small Petite in this sweatshirt so it would be a little shorter in the waist.

Where to buy:

LOFT Sweatshirt (40% OFF right meow)

LOFT Ponte Leggings (BTW these come in Maternity!!)

LOFT Tunic White Button Down

Nina’s Presidents Day Picks

So over the long weekend I planned on being really productive, however, failed.  There are too many good sales going on! I had to go through every single page to make sure I wasn’t missing anything good…. even if Nordstrom had 90 pages of Women’s sale items.  Here are my picks!!

IMG_9401

Nordstrom is having one of their major yearly sales, LOFT is having an extra 60% off their sale items and 50% off selected full price items, Banana Republic is having 40% off their whole store, Sole Society is having up to 70% off select items, and Old Navy is having 50% off all of their dresses and up to 50% off their entire store. Whoo! That was a lot to get through, now time to go shopping!

Casual Friday

ITS FRIDAYYY. My personal favorite day of the week, because I can wear my Oklahoma Kitty t-shirt to work, THE BEST.  Of course with a tweed jacket and leather coated skinny jeans.

And these FABULOUS suede maroon pumps, or as Daniel calls them, my princess shoes. Because every Friday deserves a Cat Tee and Princess shoes. Cheers to that.

Floral Blazer – 4 Ways

Well I don’t know about you, but I have a thing for floral print.  A MAJOR thing. So a floral blazer? Well, it was a done deal. Here are 4 ways to wear it:

IMG_6023

The easiest way to wear it is with a t-shirt and jeans.  (Bonus points if you wear them with colored jeans/cords) Just adds that extra sum’n sum’n to an otherwise plain outfit.

IMG_6024

A good casual Friday look would be with a flippy green skirt and a chambray shirt. (I’m pretty much a walking advertisement for LOFT at this point….. they should pay me)

IMG_8955

Of course floral print with stripes. It is the new classic print mix combo.  Get to know it!

IMG_9339

I was putting together another look with this black sweater dress and decided that the floral blazer looked awesome with it! Sometimes the best looks are literally thrown together last minute. Over the knee boots and a mini dress, how could you go wrong?

DRESSEMBER: Week 1

“Sex trafficking is a form of modern slavery in which someone coerces another person into commercial sex or exploits a child in the commercial sex trade. Simply, it is sexual violence as a business. The nightmare of forced prostitution thrives when law enforcement cannot or does not protect vulnerable children and women.”  – International Justice Mission

To think that this is happening to MILLIONS of children and women all over the globe infuriates me and inspires me want to do something about it.  So when I heard about Dressember, an event that involves wearing dresses every day in order to raise money and awareness in the fight against human trafficking, it was pretty obvious what I had to do: Team up with some beautiful ladies and join the movement!

You can see the rules and learn about the movement HERE!

I think everyone has a cause that makes their heart heavy and this is mine. Instead of pouring ice water on my head I’ve decided to do this! I am going to try to post once a week to show you what dresses I’ve worn during the cold winter.  (Should be fun in Germany….)

DECEMBER 1:

IMG_8484

I had the day off from work, so I wore a maxi dress and knit on the couch almost the whole day – I’ve gotta say, I love me some maxi.

DECEMBER 2:

IMG_8489

Silk dress + booties + festive sweater = perfect holiday work outfit! I just love mint green during the holidays, its the less obvious winter color that I just can’t get enough of.

DECEMBER 3:

IMG_8492

Dressember — Made possible with boots and cozy jackets.

DECEMBER 4:

IMG_8485

Sweatshirt dresses can be worn to work with a fabulous blazer and a sparkly necklace!

DECEMBER 5: Christmas Party!

IMG_8486Yes the panther dress makes another appearance! I mean, what dress could be more perfect for your first work party that says “I’m classy but SUPER FUN!” than a dress with gold panthers on it?

IMG_8487

(yes that is a cat hair on my dress… don’t judge)

DECEMBER 6: Christmas Shopping

IMG_8488

Ok, this really is my formula for looking chic:  Over-the-knee boots + sheer tights+ mini dress + long jacket + long simple necklace.  SO EASY and warm!

DECEMBER 7: Church

IMG_8491

Oh yes leather and velvet.  This outfit will probably be repeated…. I just can’t get enough velvet, and my husband got me this awesome leather jacket for Christmas! WANT TO WEAR IT EVERY DAY.

Mary Katherine is another member of our team who is very passionate about this cause as well AND has impeccable style…. I mean check out this layering! She is amazing.  Get inspired by her looks this week:

My Weekend Looks

Happy Cold Weather!

I felt super cute this weekend (except for Friday, but Friday is still a weekday… it doesn’t count), so I decided to share it with you all.

SATURDAY SHOPPING

Well Saturday I decided I would go down to “the city” and get some Christmas shopping done. When I wrote that, I felt like I was writing a Jane Austen novel, when the family decides to “go to town” which is like 10 miles away and all the girls buy ribbon. But in this town there’s a J.Crew!

IMG_8168

I didn’t feel great Friday, so I thought I would go cozy and comfy with this boxy crop sweater from LOFT. When wearing a boxy sweater or top, pair it with something form fitting underneath to give yourself shape.  Unless you are a box… which is unlikely.

IMG_8172

I thought pairing it with our Chunky Gold Chain necklace would be a great pairing, since the sweater is simple and has a high neckline. And of course, Kate Spade…. Kate Spade anything.

GAME NIGHT

What to wear to game night…. you want to be able to move around , sit on the floor, and look cute.  Cute and sweet, so no one will suspect your competitive spirit.

Why not go with a maxi dress?

IMG_8169

Brown + teal = 😀

IMG_8167

You just cant go wrong.  I also put a statement necklace under the scarf so I could take it off when I started to get more intense with the game playing.

IMG_8173

I just love how my husband knows my love of twirling.  I mean really, who doesn’t?

IMG_8171

FAMILY PICTURES

Well I wanted to wear something semi-festive, but not so much so that I couldn’t use the pictures for something else.  SO, hunter green dress, booties, and a statement necklace. OH and our cat… but thats a whole other story…

IMG_8166

Ok yeah we brought our cat to family picture time at my husbands work… THEY SAID TO BRING PETS. So we brought Brutus in a bow tie.  Which ended up being me with a cat hair covered dress.

But hey, you do what you do for your family, even if it is just your cat.
