Lately – I’ve come across some content in the fashion world that claims to exclaim: ripped denim is on its way out! Wait, whaaaa? Continue reading

White out. It’s one of those times of year. There’s really nothing better than getting ready for the summer season. At least for me. Continue reading

Gooo Dayton Flyers!

Gooo Dayton Flyers!

Today is a great day! For UD Flyer Fans… that is. Did you all know? That’s my alma mater, graduated in 2012 …and I miss that UD Ghetto… ahem, ‘Student Neighborhood’ every single day 😉 Yesterday, we won the first round of March Madness. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much UD love on my News Feed before.

In celebration of today… I’m sporting my University of Dayton vintage tee! That’s right… it’s vintage and it’s been in my family for years… and it’s really from 1984. Along with me – my Mom and Dad attended Ohio’s best Marianist College. A few months ago, my Mom found a whole bunch of old tee-shirts in the attic… and among them – was this beauty!

So today, as I’m wearing this graphic tee – I was inspired to share with you some of my other favorite graphic tees… and how to wear them. For professionalism and for play… and YES both can be done.

Again – all of these picks are from Amazon.com… great prices… and a larger selection than any department store I’ve come across in my 24 years!

First up… Mickey Mouse Tees! Seen here in Olive (and yep, you guessed it – along with the vintage Dayton tee… my mom also pulled out a vintage Mickey Mouse jersey tee – which of course, is what has inspired this choice).

Next up: Superhero vintage-inspired tees. These always make for a great (and comfy!) conversation piece. They’re usually decked out with bright colors and graphics for days. I have linked up here a MENS tee… ladies! Do not be afraid to cross that line and order a tee you really enjoy in MENS. I recommend a few sizes smaller than usual… but when it comes to wearing material like this… size/gender lines are totally blurred.

Before I go! Here are my tips for styling all of these…

1. If you’re trying to kick it professional… pair these tees with ‘work pants’… you know, the black ones that you wear all the time (or the brown or the pink or the whatever)… just make sure the pants are acceptable for work. Then, throw a blazer on over it… and then pair with dressy flats or even heels! (heels get my vote!)
2. If you’re handling a regular day… tees are easier to style. Wear with jeans, a pair of your favorite sneaks (my choice would be Converse), add a vest or button up sweater… if it’s nice and warm out… tie the side of the tee up into a not and add a pair of high-waisted jean shorts. A pair of sunglasses and a few too many rings and you have yourself a chic day-look.

What I wore to M Burger’s 5 Year

What I wore to M Burger’s 5 Year.

One of my favorite aspects about being a life and style blogger is the amazing opportunities to test out FOOD. Fashion is great, of course – I mean she *is* my first love… but food can take you places 😉

Today, I took the red line down to Magnificent Mile and found M Burger in WaterTower Plaza with a few Chicago bloggers to enjoy the restaurant’s birthday preview. Tomorrow 3/18, MBurger is handing out FREE burgers with any purchase. So that means… get a milkshake, add a burger on the side. Get some fries… add a burger on the side! Here’s my burger-pic via Instagram.com/duffydossier:

I’m grooving on blazers this season… can you tell? First it was the Houndstooth (which I will be doing a feature on, shortly!) now it’s the white. I love a good accent piece this time of year. It truly brings the ‘transition from winter to fall’ full circle… you know? That’s my best advice when it comes to dressing for this crazy, back and forth, hot one day, cold the next – weather.

Here are a few of my white blazer picks from Amazon.com:

<< The BoyFriend Blazer, style this with boyfriend jeans and you almost have an entire man on top of you… if you know what I mean 😉

В << How could you not like a white blazer with a bow? This is great to style with straight leg pants.

В << You can hate me all you want, but I LOVE shoulder pads. I don’t know if this is because I’m small? And it makes me feel more structured and confident in my look? Either way, I’d also style this with straight leg pants… or a pencil skirt!

Don’t like either three of these options? Make sure to click HERE for FREE shipping on all Amazon White-Blazer shopping orders of $35 dollars or more.
