I’ve been wearing a lot of color lately, but sometimes it’s nice to play with neutrals (black, brown, gray, navy blue, tan, white, etc.). Oftentimes, I find that wearing all neutrals makes me feel more sophisticated. It’s a very understated but classy way to dress. I generally like to jazz up neutrals with some sparkle―above I chose a mix of gold and silver metallic.
There’s nothing tall about this outfit. I bought the regular-sized skirt from Marshalls and the regular-sized shirt from Ann Taylor. With skirts and tops, I rarely ever have to buy tall sizes. Maybe that’s why I wear so many pencil skirts! It’s dresses and pants that I always have trouble with.

Anyone sense a nautical theme? That’s because this month, I’m obsessed with anything nautical, especially anchors! Here are some of my picks:
- J.Crew Anchors Aweigh Tee
- Dogeared Jewels It’s The Little Things Anchor Studs
- Nine West Handbags One Stop Shopper Large Tote
- J.Crew Postage Stamp Skirt in Mini Dizzy Anchors
- J.Crew Mona Anchor Printed Pumps

Yes, we’re talking about the NuBra here! I bought this one from Amazon for $30 and was very skeptical at first. I mean, how long could a sticky bra last? Would it actually provide any support?
Surprisingly, this sticky bra works wonders! It does look a bit awkward and it certainly feels a bit awkward at first, but one you get used to it, there’s no turning back to regular strapless bras.
And no, that’s not me in the photo!
I bought my first and only NuBra last August. I’ve worn it about 40 times and it still has a bit of wear left. I’m an a-cup, so I can’t speak for women with larger cup-sizes, but the NuBra provides plenty of support and coverage. This one in particular doesn’t have any extra padding, so if that’s what you’re looking for, I wouldn’t recommend it. It does, however, enable you to enhance your cleavage. All you have to do is stick the cups further apart and use the clasp to pull them together.
I guess my secret’s out! You can see some outfits where I’m wearing the NuBra here and here. Can’t tell, can you? It’s perfect for strapless and backless dresses/shirts.
I’ll definitely be purchasing another one. It’s totally comfortable and feels like you’re not wearing anything!
