Easy winter outfits with skirts

It’s not *quite* freezing yet so I’m enjoying some in-between dressing right now, and I’ve made quite a few outfits with midi skirts and sweaters this month! This is an easy winter outfit idea for work and it has definitely become a habit of mine. Here are four midi skirt and sweater combos I’ve been enjoying:

Review and Giveaway: Teeth Whitening Coffee Stains Away

I’ve graduated from grad school. I’m trying to be a functioning adult. Yet a big, lingering sign that I’ve just written a 300-page dissertation is still around: Coffee Stains! It’s no secret that coffee shop writing is the best. I just wish it hadn’t left my teeth quite so yellow. After searching the at-home teeth whitening products available I decided to partner with Smile Brilliant and the shortest review I can give you of this stuff is IT WORKS.

The longer review I can give you is I’m a pansy/following directions is hard/my dentist shamed me into this/I’m never using normal whitening strips again. Too much in a sentence? Don’t worry. We’ll get there.

What do I even do with dad jeans?

The question of how to style dad jeans (in this case, vintage Levis) has probably been answered a million times on the internet, but that didn’t stop me from putting them on multiple mornings, getting stuck, staring at tops, and finally chickening out and putting them away. So this week I made three combos that I know for sure I like with light wash jeans. Here they are, if dad jeans (or mom jeans…is there a difference?) vex you as well.

Reviews: Products I bought to solve problems and whether they worked or not

Well, that’s a long winded title, but that’s exactly what I’m going to do in todays post! So much of marketing exists to convince us we have a problem we can buy our way out of. Most of these claims are overstated. Some of them turn out to be kind of true. Here are some problems I’ve tried to address lately and reviews of the products that accompanied my crusade against them…

Problem: Dry cleaning bills.

My “faux fall 10×10”: Dressing for warm fall temperatures

When I saw that several of my instagram friends are participating in a #fauxfall10x10, it was just the challenge I needed. I’ve been feeling all the decorative gourd feelings, and the temperature has finally landed in the low 90s here in Vegas. And yes, that’s what counts for Fall. The idea of this challenge is to dress for the fall you have, versus the fall you want. Then, pick 10 items and remix them to make 10 outfits over 10 days. Here are my picks:
