If you're lucky enough to live within driving distance, factor in travel time to pull over on the side of the road and take photos. It's such a picturesque drive in (and out)!

FAUXSACE

I love nothing more than to come home on Friday night after a long week of work and sit on my couch with a bottle glass of wine or a cup of tea and indulge in all of the TV goodness I don't have time to watch during the week.

But every blue moon, when there's a party that's worth the effort, I'll partake. On this particularly night, I threw on my work pumps (I'm having knee issues, so limited in my shoe options) and my Versace "fauxsace" dress and headed to the W for a party. And yes it was worth the effort!

OFFICE CHIC: HOUNDSTOOTH


I've had this skirt for years (as in 5+) and I have no clue why I bought it since until 7 months ago I've never needed to dress up for anything, other than the occasional interview. Nonetheless, I'm glad I bought it and held on to it because it fits nicely into my business casual wardrobe. I think next up, I need a HOUNDSTOOTH PENCIL DRESS.

JOGGERS ONLY


Outside of the house, you won't catch me in sweats. But joggers? I'm all about them! I love that you still have a shape when you wear them. You can wear them with flats, heels, sneakers etc.They come in fun patterns and colors. And what I love most about these is the faux leather waist! I got them during the Zara sale and now I'm wishing I'd gotten them in every color. How does that saying go? Nothing haunts us like the things we didn't buy. Oh well...

WEARING: bebe leather peplum jacket (VERY SIMILAR FOR $110), zara joggers (almost identical TOPSHOP JOGGERS), TARGET MIRROR AVIATORS, kenneth cole chain necklace (SHORTER VERSION), furla bag, vince camuto booties

THE PERFECT PATCH


What do you guys think about elbow patches? According to my mom they are "played" — her words, not mine. I happen to think they are timeless and thank goodness she raised an independent thinker with high self esteem who will continue to rock elbow patches despite said playedness ;) Happy Monday! Can't wait for Friday and the 3 day weekend.

OLIVIA POPED

If you watch Scandal, you already know Olivia Pope's signature color is white and she loves a good outerwear piece! So as an ode to the season starting back up last week, I wore some white denim and a cape from The Limited's Scandal Collection. I guess you can say, I Olivia Poped myself ;) 

I actually don't think I've ever seen her denim, but I had to put my simply chic twist on it. Check out OLIVIA POPE'S BEST LOOKS EVER according to US Magazine.
