Keep Calm and Carry On

What I'm wearing:
*H&M Striped Jacket (similar here)
*Martin + Osa Embellished T-shirt (similar here)
*Joie Willa Skirt in Stain (similar here)
*Gap Opaque Tights in Black

Black + white + splash of color is such an easy look to put together. It is pretty much what I always go for when I have a bright piece that I want to incorporate into my wardrobe. Lightweight knit jackets like this striped one that I haven't reached for in awhile are great for this weather because they are easily layered under my coat. A girl can wear cardigans only so often. 

Sequins are a girl's second best friend. I love sparkly things, and these oxfords definitely caught my magpie-esque eye. Now these sequin oxfords are a bit ridiculous but I think that they are so fun! 

This is what what my workspace normally looks like. I decided I needed to find a place so I can snap some OOTD photos in my apartment, and decided that if I pushed the table away, it's an easy place to take some photographs. The "Keep Calm and Carry On" print was a gift from my sister Sophia after I moved into my current apartment. It's a pretty great motto to live by. I still have a lot of decorating to do (and have yet to hang up what I have collected already) but this is probably my favorite bit of my (very small) apartment right now. [The zebra chair is from Target, print from Marshalls Home Goods, lamp from BB&B, and Ikea table.]


  1. I agree black/white/splash of color is easy peasy and always looks great! Thst skirt is an awesome shade of purple. Keep Calm and Carry On is one of my favorite pieces of art but, I especially love your zebra chair. The way one styles clothes can deinitely translate into decor :)

  2. Where did you get that chair? I love it!

  3. love that workspace and the strips with the pop of purple in the skirt! stop by again soon and check out my giveaway!

  4. I absolutely love this out and I'm also jealous of your work space. I opted for a larger closet which gave my husband his own workspace while I perch on the couch with my netbook. However, now I'm wanting a workspace. This just makes me want it a little more.

  5. love the outfit! that stripe sweater looks great paired with that skirt! your workspace is clean and simple. i need something like that! i always end up having lots of desk clutter.

  6. Cute work station and outfit! I love those sequined oxfords, they're so girly.

  7. Those sequined oxfords are great! Love the B&W + purple combo.

  8. Is your desk always so neat? I swear my desk looks like a disaster covered in so much paper, lol.
    I am in love with this striped blazer. It looks great paired with that skirt and with simple black pieces.

  9. love the pop of color from your skirt and it works beautifully with the other black and white pieces. and i love the zebra print chair you found!!

  10. Rosa, love the purple skirt. The workstation is great too!

  11. That zebra chair is from Target?! I would have never guessed! I love the floors on your place, and the print is great! I am pretty sure that this is my favorite outfit of yours now. The bold black and white stripes with that awesome purple skirt is just AMAZING -- not to mention those lovely sequined oxfords!
