mint moment

Aritzia sweater, James Perse skirt (sim here), Zara heels, Amer Apparel clutch, BR cocktail ring, M by MJ watch, Madewell spike bracelet, Essie Turquoise & Caicos nail polish, Cover Girl ‘Divine’ Lip Perfection lipstick

This is what I call my simple and relaxed chic mint moment.  I couldn’t help bringing it all full circle with the nails! I heart Spring.

I say it’s a tie. Me, well I wore mine slightly less conservatively (she’s the First Lady after all, I am not). I actually ended up buying this dress in an extra large because it was the only one left and decided to make it work by belting and blouson-ing the whole thing, turning the skirt into a short, flirty mini. Me and Mrs. Obama both swapped out the belt that came with the dress for our own (cheap plastic belts suck) and wrapped ourselves up in cozy cardigans. I love this fun floral print Jason did for Target and know I will be wearing this from now all the way through Summer.

 

before sundown

Anthropologie blazer (similar here), vintage fur stole (similar here), Gap skirt, American Apparel tank, Urban Outfitters shoes, Rebecca Minkoff clutch

I had one of those glorious weekends that felt like the perfect combination of  relaxation, getting things done and fun with friends. On Saturday evening I attended an intimate rooftop cocktail and dinner party in honor of a friends birthday (it’s practically summer here in SF) in this outfit. It felt like the perfect combination of relaxed and glamorous, which is exactly the way I wanted to look and feel on an evening that ended with everyone lounging in the living room carpet with bottles of wine. Plus, you know how I feel about bright pink ♥

Hope you all had similarly lovely weekends! Viva la Indian Winter.

A dash of lemon yellow adds just the right amount of optimism to a January ensemble ♥ How adorable is this Old Navy striped midi skirt (came with a belt, and I removed it). A total score .

Happy Happy Friday everyone! Thanks for all of your kind words about my Glitter Guide ‘How To’ feature! I am so glad you all liked it and found it helpful! I am to please afterall!

H&M dress (similar here), Sanctuary vest, BR Karlie briefcase bag, Frye boots, Chan Luu & c/o Baublebar bracelets, Topshop earrings

Give me a briefcase-esque bag and a tie front shirt dress and suddenly I feel all professional. Of course, I must funk it up with some faux fur, because that’s just who I am.
