Your Dingy Old Words

My morning went like this: I put on my black and white striped shirt. To be honest, it’s dingy as all hell, and the armpits have major sweat stains in it, but I keep it around solely to wear under my jean jackets. I think we all have one of these items, or if you’re…

Season Translations

I think I’m probably one of the only people who actively hopes for snow and winter, and I’m cool with it. To me, it means a whole new wardrobe to whip out and show to everyone, and layering is one of my favorite techniques. But I have the same emotional attachment to all of my…

2-Pieces of My Heart

I’m a go-with-the-flow girl. I like things loose and airy, and I also like being comfortable. That’s why some of my favorite outfits include rompers or dresses. But as of late I’ve found another version of these that make things a little more fun. They have many cameos and have yet to be coined something…

Getting Thrifty

One of the best parts about going home for me is the abundance of thrift shops. And anyone who knows me also knows that more than half of my wardrobe has been purchased from some kind of wear-it-again place. I love small business and I love cheap finds: perfect harmony. The common misconception is that dressing fashionably…

Swim Style Guide

Who’s ready for summer? Well, me. I’m ready for it. Unfortunately, we still have a few weeks to go. But have no fear, spring break is here! Who knows what you’re up to for this nice vacation, whether it’s staying at home, taking a few day trips with your friends, or blowing the whole week…

How to Relate the Oscars Fashion to Your Everyday Wardrobe

This year’s Academy Awards were filled with so much. From jokes, to advocacy, to our boy Leo finally grabbing hold of that Oscar —it was a night to remember. But some of the best things about all of these celebrities gathering together is the fashion statements they choose to make. And although you probably shouldn’t go to…

OOTD 2-25-16

OOTD for this chilly February Thursday. Matched my cotton, army-green dress with black tights and combat boots. Softened the look up with a sweater-jean jacket combo and a simple necklace.                    Current Mood:   xoxo, O.Herken

Polishing off Winter

The snow is melting, the gloves are coming off, and…oh my gosh, what are those?! Those, my dear, are your nails. The nails that you’ve been hiding under a pair of mittens, and the hands that have severely suffered from the wrath of old man winter. It’s time to get a manicure and let the…

Happy Closet, Happy You

The time has come to thin down the closet. By thin down I mean get rid of those chunky sweaters that have been swelling it up all winter! Unfortunately, we all don’t have a little Kardashian to take care of this for us, but it’s not too hard on your own! Here are some tips on…

This Spring’s Persuasion

I don’t know about you, but when I think of suede I picture an embroidered vest with tasseled fringe, hanging off of some liberal protester outside of the White House in the 60s. That is, up until I found one of the cutest pair of boots from Target, the other day. And you bet I bought…

Not Your Momma’s Bell Bottoms

With the new spring season arriving we’re all craving something a little new. The pants trends that are still on file should definitely stay for as long as possible (we all have our favorite pair of skinnies), but it’s time we focused a little bit less about the cuffs and flare. Because your waist is…

I’m a Fan of Your Flannel, and Spring is Too

As we jump into the milder days we find ourselves tilting our heads back and forth in front of our closets, scratching our heads, and sighing because our winter clothes just can’t come with us to spring. Though it might be true that your fur vest and cable knit sweaters assuredly cannot, the story isn’t the same…
