The very day that the Universal Standard x J. Crew collaboration launched, I placed an order. No stranger to Wardrobe Oxygen will know that I've become quite a Universal Standard fangirl. As for J.

What I Wore: Tour of Good Housekeeping with Jambu [Sponsored]

Outfit Posts Spring

Growing up, the magazines in our home were Time, National Geographic, and Good Housekeeping. Whenever anything was purchased, my parents consulted Consumer Reports, and or Good Housekeeping. New recipe tried for dinner? There's a good chance it came from the pages of good Housekeeping. Many a collage was made from those same pages; in fact I made a collage as a new sorority pledge to represent my personality and I…

recent purchases hits and misses by wardrobe oxygen

Shopping Hits and Misses: Madewell, Boden, Ellos, J. Crew, Amazon

Fashion Advice

I told you there'd be a lot of these hits and misses! I haven't even lost 20 pounds since I started working out at the beginning of December, but with the increase in muscle most of my clothes are fitting weird or not fitting at all.

What I Wore: Shades of Blue

Outfit Posts Winter

When you match the decor, you just HAVE to take some photos! Karl and I checked out Burton's Grill & Bar, a restaurant chain along the Eastern Seaboard. With locations from Massachusetts to North Carolina, this is the first one in Maryland. Not only does it have beautiful decor that beautifully matched with my navy outfit (totally coincidental, it was our first visit), it has a unique menu and cooking…
