It Was All Yellow

June 19, 2013


- Zara blazer & tee, Express pants (old), Send The Trend necklace (c/0),
Shop Bevel ring (c/o), Saint Laurent sandals, Prada bag -

I honestly can’t get enough of yellow right now – especially when paired with classic black and white.  This outfit is a often repeated one (especially on days when my legs aren’t exactly skirt/shorts ready), though I’ve ditched the blazer with this HOT weather.  Was I really complaining about cold weather just a few weeks ago?  Yes, not so much anymore…

Also, can we talk about this necklace?  Send The Trend kindly gifted it to me when I participated in their STTyle Challenge in December, but it’s been my go-to whenever I need to add a little je ne sais quoi to an outfit.  This and a studded double ring are all the accessories I need.

What’s been your go-to outfit this spring/summer?  COMMENT below and let me know!

It’s the 90’s

June 14, 2013

- Banana Republic trench, ASOS overalls, vintage blouse, River Island loafers,
Prada bag, Adia Kibur necklace, JewelMint bangle, sunglasses via Amazon -

I’ve degressed to my adolescent self as of late – listening to impossibly cheesy playlists (finally ready to share my boy bands one), dancing and singing around my apartment/hotel room like a fool, and even revisiting old fashion favorites from the era.  Enter – the overalls.

Let me preface this by saying the last time overalls were the big thing, I wore mine for a near decade (from age 12-20).  I probably still own them, tucked in a random box at my parents’ house.  The same may happen again – fair warning.  I feel very strongly about this trouser-style version from ASOS – I feel as if it’s the sartorial summary of me.  Efficient, polished, and yet just a bit cheesy.

They’re also really comfortable, and the perfect thing to throw on during an “I-have-no-clue-what-to-wear-my-life-is-over” panicked moment.  Which happens often.

What’s an old-is-new trend you’re loving?  And a more important question – which boy band of the 90s was your favorite?  I was a diehard *NSYNC fan, all the way.  COMMENT below and let me know!

I meant to do another one of these posts sooner.  I really did. But then I had a rare stretch of weeks at home, and my daily bag errs on the boring side – wallet, sunglasses, iPhone, the like.  Yawn. Alas, my time at home is coming to an end and I’ll be spending the first half of June traveling around the United States – to Chicago and Washington D.C for work conferences, and Cape Cod for a weekend getaway with my husband.  I’ll save the “vacation bag” for a future post, but here’s what I’ll be toting around in the Windy City and our nation’s capital.


- DVF Harper Connect bag (the iPad pocket is genius!) – iPad 2 – business cards – Stephanie Johnson makeup bag – Tieks (necessary for running around a convention center) – Prada wallet – iPhone – Apple headphones with microphone – extra jewelry – StyleMint scarf – Moleskine notebookSharpie pens – gum – envelope for receipts (for easy expense reports) -

What do you pack for conferences?  Any tips or tricks on how to conquer a conference?  COMMENT below and share the goods.
