What I Wore: Mellow Yellow

what I wore: pants – old navy, sweater – isaac misrahi for target, platforms – bcbg, necklace – vintage
This necklace has been in my mom’s closet for as long as I can remember. I promptly lifted it from her only to discover it was broken! With a little help from my friends at Dark Star Visuals I restrung it and always love wearing it.

From the Weekend

Beaver Lake

Long weekends are always wonderful. We went to the lake, out to dinner, to the pool and farmer’s market. It finally feels like summer!

What I Wore: Pretty in Plaid

what I wore: dress – vintage penny rosenfeld via cheap thrills (seen here), heels – jessica simpson, cateye sunnies – asos

This is one of my favorite dresses. I had a moment when I spotted it, like it had to come home with me no matter the price tag. I love the color, the silhouette, the waist-cinch, the length, neckline, skirt. I mean….I love it. I haven’t worn it since last summer and I’m so happy to see it/wear it again. I think it’s really important for those of us who love clothes to always be on the lookout for items that make us feel more like ourselves.

What I Wore: Librarian-Chic

what I wore: dress – french connection (thrifted), heels – quipid, glasses – shop ultra, watch – bcbg, bangles – vintage & dannijo, nails – revlon
Glasses are one of those accessories that can completely change your look. These are my favorite frames from Shop Ultra, I immediately feel smarter (and chicer).

What I Want: High Tops

Ever since I saw Kate Bosworth wearing this I have wanted wedged sneakers. I’m not exactly in the financial place to splurge on Isabel Marant, so I’m weighing the other options. I’ve always loved wearing comfortable kicks but at under 5’3″ I don’t like to sacrifice the height. These would provide the perfect marriage of comfort and fashion! I found some fun options on ebay as well.

What I Wore: Business As Usual

what I wore: trousers – ralph lauren via tj maxx (seen here, here & here), oxford – thrifted ralph lauren, heels – gianni bini, earrings – charm & chain
These sailor pants took no time to become my favorite trousers. They create a flattering silhouette and are dressy enough for work but they’re navy so they can also be dressed down with a more casual top.
