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

Flower Pants

Sometimes you just wanna wear flower pants. Don’t hate! I can seriously see myself wearing these all the time with all different tops and shoes.  They will go with white, chambray, navy, green, grey…. and of course this citron color.  The great thing about any floral print is that there are many colors involved, so that means you can wear it with many different things.  And also stripes.  IMG_6099

I mean, how can you have a bad day when you wear pants with flowers on them? The answer is, you can’t. When you wear loud clothing, make sure to keep the accessories simple – Simple jewelry, shoes and handbag

I will write a post soon to show how to wear these in multiple ways!

Easy Monday

Some days happen to be Mondays.  And Mondays are the worst of the days.  That is why we have shirt dresses.  To allow you to sleep in an extra 10-15 minutes, all you need is a trusty shirt dress, so you can wake up, throw it on, and just be done with it.  IMG_6098

This one I love because it doesn’t need much styling and it doesn’t have a collar. (Collars are too much to deal with on a Monday, lets be honest)

A simple necklace or two, nude heels, and a bright purse are all that is needed to make this into an outfit. Bright shoes would also be fun with this dress, or even flats.  Happy Monday!!

What I Wore Wednesday

I don’t know about you, but I was not ready to start waking up in the dark again.  For me, the time change looks like pressing snooze approximately 3 times, and have about 15 minutes to get ready for work. Which breaks down to 9 minutes doing makeup, 1 minute to brush my hair, and about 5 minutes to figure out what the heck I am going to wear.  Sweatshirt dress and flannel scarf? Sounds good.   IMG_9580

Because, I want to wear sweatshirts to work every day.

Pink Aluminium

J. Crew has a way with words.  Not only do they have the best colors, but they also are the best at naming their colors. I don’t usually go for pink, but this color has a little bit of an edge. I also think this color is going to start popping up a lot in the Spring (Along with a light to medium blue).IMG_9591

I look forward to wearing it with black skinny jeans, white jeans, and anything in medium blue — like the scarf pictured below!

IMG_9555

IMG_9599Oh how I love a good drapey sweater.  I am always looking for a good one that is cozy yet still flattering, and of course J. Crew has that look down.  They are not only the experts in color naming, but also disheveled chic. Which is how I try to dress on Mondays, even if it is by accident.

Window Pane

I bought this dress at LOFT and I’ve been waiting to wear it until got warmer, but I’ve become impatient.  However, I will admit I am thoroughly enjoying the snow.  There isn’t much better to me than waking up to a fresh blanket of snow, even if I do have to drive into work…. that just means I HAVE to treat myself to a Caramel Flan Latte, right?IMG_9550
 



But adding bright accessories to your outfit really will brighten your day, I promise.

To make this Spring dress Winter appropriate I added the obvious tights and boots, but then also a chambray shirt underneath.  Comfortable, warm, and put together.  This look  is possible with almost any t-shirt dress, and there are tons of options available right now! I will also probably try this look with a crisp white button down as well.

Where to get this look:

Lou & Grey Tee Dress

Monochromatic.

I’m back!! I know its been awhile, but lets be the kind of friends that pick up just where we left off.  No awkward silences please!

Well this is going to be a short one, but I will post my big fall blog this coming weekend to talk about my fall picks, fall trends to buy into, and JEANS.

So the idea of monochromatic dressing isn’t new to the scene, however, I am finally starting to feel comfortable enough to try it myself! It is super flattering AND so easy to pull off.  You can start off with all white or all black, but I decided to start with this fun fall hue.  If you do go with a bold color, make sure that you try to buy both pieces from the same store so that you get the same shade.

Not only is it flattering, but you immediately look like a fashionista. Just add simple jewelry (and one of these adorable chunky chain bracelets) and a bright purse/clutch.

Of course you can add a scarf to this look if it is chilly outside.  I personally love this Fall Floral Infinity Scarf!

Also, I got this entire outfit at Old Navy!! Now, I do have to give credit to my blogger crush KendiEveryday (she is AMAZING!)

I would also put leopard print shoes with this if I had them, or  do what Kendi did and put electric blue shoes with it.  But the nude shoes look classy, and it is easy to take it a step further with a statement clutch.
