My go-to outfit combination is a pair of loose shorts and a chambray shirt. I got these amazing chevron shorts a year ago at a Charlotte Russe sale and they were only $10! I bought another pair which I wore in this post. My chambray shirt is probably the most worn item in my closet as you have seen me wear it on the blog many times. Even though it is summer I chose to wear my ankle boots for a bit of height since the shorts are pretty short. I think it adds a bit of edge to the outfit as well. I pulled my hair up into a messy top-knot to accentuate my collar. I hardly ever wear my hair up but I really liked my new method for top-knots.
What are your go-to outfit combos? I would love to try!
When I first decided I wanted to start a blog it took me a while to figure what I wanted to name it. After what seemed like months of debating I came up with adry on the daily. I picked this name because I wanted my blog to be a representation of my daily life. It’s hard to wear your every day clothes when other bloggers are wearing glammed up looks. But this blog is meant to inspire fashionable looks even when you are running errands or even just hanging out at home. There is no reason you can’t feel your very best even when you are wearing sweat pants.
I have never been much of a sweat pants girl and all the pairs I own have been gifted to me, just like these pink ones that my mom gave me for Christmas. It came with a matching sweater and I fell in love with the set for so many reasons! First off, I am obsessed with the color blush and I adore the subtle gold details. I also really love how they are slim fit and I prefer to wear them scrunched up at the calf. Since it was a bit hot out I paired the pant with an old StyleMint tank and a bralette underneath. I have to say that I am entirely obsessed with this bralette. Not only does it have gold polka dots (score!) but it’s really comfortable and it provides a nice break from wearing a regular bra.
For a casual look like this, I just put my hair up in a high pony and curled the ends a little to add volume. For my makeup, all I did was put on my favorite BB cream, blush, mascara and lip gloss. I also chose to wear my tote purse which is ideal when running errands.
As you already know, I have a mild, I mean major obsession with polka dots so it was only a matter of time till I created an entire look using some of my many polka dot pieces. Instead of wearing a skirt with the same black and white polka dot print as my crop top, I went for a more subtle approach and wore this skirt that has a polka dot pattern in a reduced size and color palette.
I recently bought this hat from Windsor and I am so happy with it! I am pretty picky when it comes to brim size and this seems to be the perfect match. I wore my favorite sunnies and some comfortable black sandals. I then topped it off with… yup, a polka dot bracelet. I thought, hey one more thing can’t hurt!
I started doing some spring cleaning this week. I happily started to put my winter clothes away and started to bring back my spring/summer clothes. I then came across this sequins skirt which I bought for New Years Eve. I absolutely love this skirt and I really did not want to put it away till next year. So…. I decided to pair it with a simple white Tee and my trusty chambray to dress it down a bit. To take the casual factor up a notch I also wore my Converse. I was more than pleased with the results! Later in the day I put my hair in a top knot and I actually liked the outfit even more.
So don’t shy away from putting away those sequins skirts you wore over the holidays. Show me how you style your sequence for an everyday look and #adryonthedaily.
Spring is totally in the air and I am welcoming it with open arms. Spring is my favorite season for many reasons, one being that my birthday is in April. I also love it because this is when beautiful flowers start to bloom in the most beautiful and bright colors. I am starting to embrace lighter colors and fresher fabrics as the weather begins to shift. I have owned this blouse for a while now and it is the perfect shade of peach in a very light fabric. And these pants are my new obsession! Not only did I get these on sale on Target BUT they have the most beautiful watercolor print in a ridiculously fresh fabric. They are kind of like work out pants in disguise. This look would not have been complete without my Juicy bracelet. I don’t wear it often because it is rather chunky but when I do wear it I know I am making a statement!

Polka-dots and stripes are hands down my favorite patterns. So when my mom saw this sweater she knew it had my name all over it. Since its shorter in length is makes for a great layering piece. Chambray is my go-to when layering sweaters with a bold print. Since the weather has been warming up, I decided to add a strong pop of color. I chose to wear a boot because I felt it pulled from the black print to tie the outfit together. I have also been stacking a lot of gold bracelets together above my watch for a more casual feel. And how cute is Rocky?! He clearly enjoyed being on the blog so he decided to photo bomb my pictures.
I have a younger brother who is 18 years old and he is easily my favorite person in the world. We are complete opposites but since we are pretty close in age we have always had a special bond that I am extremely grateful for. This bond is so close that he doesn’t stop me from borrowing his sweaters every now and then. There’s something extra comfy about wearing a boys sweater. This gray one has been my favorite for a while and when my brother grew out of it he finally let me have it. I usually wear it with leggings and tall boots, but this time I wanted to dress it up a bit. I automatically went for my new favorite necklace from Charming Charlie. It takes any outfit to the next level! I wanted the gray to pop so I paired it with my white pants and cuffed them at the bottom to show off my brown ankle boots. This outfit was perfect for a date night!

My family and I go to Vegas at least once a year. We especially try to go during the holidays because in true Vegas style they go all out with decorations. It definitely gets us excited for all the holiday festivities. Since the weather is much colder during this time of year, I decided to wear this stripe sweater dress I scored at Ross. The gray and black color block allow me to have fun with color through accessories. I kept the bottom half neutral with gray tights and black boots. However on top I went for a pop of bold purple and then a subtle pink necklace. Sometimes it’s nice to just let a few accessories do the talking.
We’re going to rewind here for a second and talk about Black Friday. My only Black Friday experience was a year ago when I worked at Michael Kors for the weekend. I have never gone out shopping, even though the deals are extremely tempting. This year however I couldn’t resist the temptation any longer. I went to Target at like 9:00 at night on Friday. If I was going to shop at one store that day, it of course was going to be Target. I ended up scoring on this plaid jacket with faux leather detailing. It has become the perfect jacket to dress up a pair of jeans. I also received these boots as an early Christmas gift. I am absolutely in love with them and I can’t wait to wear them with so many outfits. Also, lets talk about jeans… I hate buying them. I can never find the right size, the right cut or wash. This is why I have had the same pair of jeans for over 4 years. But, I really did need to find a new pair, so I came across this pair of Jolt Jeans at Nordstrom Rack. What I like about these is they are super comfortable and stretchy. Usually denim is stiff but these allow me to feel flexible when I’m out running errands or lounging around the house all day. They were definitely a great buy!
I am finally a senior!! I can’t believe that in just nine short months I will be a college graduate. I’ve definitely been soaking up each day in order to truly embrace my last year as a student.
My style has definitely been evolving over time, each outfit seems to be a little more sophisticated, but also a bit daring. I am less opposed to taking fashion risks and I find it thrilling when I come up with an outfit that I would have never worn before. For example I paired this soft, chambray shirt dress with edgy, black boots. I think the contrast from the boots and the dress is unexpected but pleasing to the eye. I kept my accessories dark with a black purse and black and gold necklace. The necklace adds a touch of glam that stands out against the denim. I can’t wait to pair this dress with socks and boots for colder days in fall!
