Wedding Wear

March 11, 2015

ebb + flow :: wedding wear

In the next month I have two weddings and a rehearsal dinner on the calendar. This means it’s time for a closet inventory (I don’t do last minute panic and event outfit prep very well). In a mid-afternoon jaunt around the Mall today I grabbed this shift dress from H&M and am thinking it will be perfect for the rehearsal dinner. Thankfully, I’ve got the majority of the pieces above to complete the ensemble. One down! Wish me luck with the rest.

Suit Season

February 6, 2015

ebb + flow :: suit season

In the world of retail right now, we’re all about spring. I’ve got florals, patterns, bright colors and flowy dresses coming out of my ears at this point as we prep for a photo shoot next week (watch for some #bts here). Of course, I had to style a little imaginary look for myself among the chaos! Now, if only, I had some time to get to a beach! One can dream…

Have a great weekend, friends! I’m off to Chicago (definitely not a sandy or sunny beach there!) so I’ll catch you on Monday for a belated wrap up.

That Look

February 2, 2015

ebb + flow :: the look

Things I know for certain:
– Black and white will never go out of style.
– Camel is also on the ‘never go out of style’ list.

Therefore, this look is perfect and I want it on my body. Please and thank you.

Tunic Time

January 21, 2015

ebb + flow :: tunic time

I wore a shapeless tunic, dress or top no less than four days last week. Why I do this to myself (or why I own so many over-sized clothing items), I do not know. I’m thinking it’s time to add some more pieces with a defined waist to my life. Ladies and gents, we have a winner. It’s a good baby step above from the potato sacks of last week and seems perfect for these never-ending and dreary January days we’re experiencing.

Get the whole look here:
Tunic :: Lipstick (still my current favorite) :: Nail Polish :: Earrings
Boots :: Watch (I borrow the Red Head’s version of this all the time) :: Tights

Black Pants

January 20, 2015

ebb + flow :: black pants

If I tell you how old my go-to black pants are, you will probably stop talking to me. So, to say I am in need of new ones is the understatement of the century.

Enter: J.Crew’s MLK weekend sale. Thanks to an extra 50% off the sale section I snagged these beauties for less than $24 yesterday. Perfect length, great color, good fit, better price. Keep an eye on their site for another sale because you need them as well, trust me.

Packing Woes

December 23, 2014

ebb + flow :: packing woes

If you were looking for me last night between the hours of 11:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. you could have found me and the Red Head throwing random clothes, shoes, electronics and Christmas gifts into our suitcases while scratching our heads. I don’t advise packing this way for ten days of travel to two different climates and various family events. To say we were frazzled would be an understatement. I, in particular, kept throwing clothes on the floor and just staring at them. Again, I do not advise this method but, somehow, a full suitcase made it into the truck this morning. Here’s hoping I don’t end up on the worst dressed list for the next ten days. Had I had my wits about me, maybe I could have summoned the outfit gods and pieced together an outfit like the one above? Maybe next time…
