{ Dare To Wear } Summer-Style To The Maxi

Like my dress? Thanks! I got it at a consignment shop and tend to wear it more than other maxis I’ve paid much more for. Why? The cut is so complementary, even on my 5’2 1/2 frame. The fabric is super light (perfect for the heat wave we’ve been having), but not sheer. Oh, and … Continue Reading

{ Dare To Wear } Denim + Denim

It’s casual. It’s cool. It’s often my uniform for living life. Denim on denim, or the “Canadian tuxedo” as many call it, is easy and effortless. Plus you can take it so many different ways, depending on how you accessorize it. A bright heel, slip-on sneaker, or perhaps snake-skin loafers — all-denim dressing is can … Continue Reading

I’ve always had a thing for retro styles.

{ Dare To Wear } How To Elevate Your Biz-Casual Style

My work requires me to look pulled together with a stylish, creative flare and guess what?

It’s easy to recreate and the statement necklace adds so much style. … Continue Reading

{ Dare To Wear } The Bolder, The Better

Dear life, you are meant to be lived so I am dressing for the occasion! I wore this dress, necklace, and earrings for a recent TV segment on Fox29 (see: the look on Instagram). I threw it together early that morning, right after moving, so all my stuff was/is a bit in disarray. To my surprise, this … Continue Reading

{ Dare To Wear } Winter Accessories

Two things I wear all winter:  beanies + scarves. They are pretty much a must for my daily life and often stay on after my coat comes off. Beanies truly are the cure to a bad hair day and cold ear, and scarves basically make me feel like I’m wrapped up in my own personal … Continue Reading

{ Dare To Wear } Two Sweaters Are Warmer Than One

Sweater weather is just my style. I’m all about the cozy-cool layers. This look screams weekend-wonderful vibes to me. Why? Because it’s comfy and practical (these boots are so warm and comfy!), but chic enough for a photo op. Okay, now to the pics + style tips. Happy scrolling!

{ Dare To Wear } Three Ways To Wear Booties

Don’t you just love booties? I do! They are a go-to shoe for me, for now and all year long. They’re more closed than a pump, keeping my feet warm and ready for cooler temps. They’re also crazy versatile and pair just as well with dresses as they do with jeans.

{ Dare To Wear } How To Layer Up Your Little Black Dress

 Is it me or do these pics have a slight Halloween vibe? Maybe it’s the location (the church at my alma mater, Cabrini College), or the the dark lip + dark hair + dark clothing. I tend to wear lighter colors close to my hair to brighten up my look, which is maybe why I … Continue Reading

{ Dare To Wear } Double-Cuff Love

This outfit incorporates a few of my favorites for fall — layering, plaid, olive green, cuffed jeans, and wine hues too. Pretty much everything I have on is something I’ve been wearing a lot lately. The jacket and plaid top are a recent Nordstrom purchase and work so well with so much already in my … Continue Reading
