Outside of challenges does your blog ever dictate what you wear? This morning when I got dressed I did so with the mindset "haven't been showing much color on the blog lately". There were a ton of colorful options to choose from, but this is what I came up with...
zara blazer, f21 top & jeggings
english laundry sunnies, michael kors watch
revlon kiss me coral & mac ruby woo lipsticks, opi cajun shrimp polish
carlos santana pumps, thrifted clutch, eshakti earrings

I went out for happy hour recently and decided to dress as if I could be coming from work.
I was telling my friend, if I am ever in an industry where I need a completely separate wardrobe for work and weekend, I'm doing something wrong.
Anyway, as you can see I'm getting good use out of this Kenneth Cole "chain" and the best part is it was only about 8 bucks! I've gotten more than my money's worth.
I've also gotten my money's worth from these Dolce Vita heels that I've had for probably two or three years. They are my go to neutral shoe when I don't want to wear black or brown as evident HERE & HERE.

wearing: zara blouse & trench, topshop trousers, dolce vita heels, thrifted bag, kenneth cole necklace, f21 rings, michael kors watch, gifted bracelet
worn to: drinks & sushi at OZUMO

short set

I was looking through my camera and realized I still have stuff to post from my cruise, so here we go...

As soon as I put this on I thought, "this looks like a short set and I feel old lady-ish".

Well it's actually two separate pieces...

and I like it :)

wearing: fab'rik boutique top, urban outfitters shorts, kenneth cole necklace, h&m sunnies, cheap/old sandals
worn: in miami & first day on my cruise

summer tights

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. I am wearing black tights.

As evident by my face, I am as confused as you are about tights in July, in Cali.

I tried to Summer-ize the look by adding a white belt and pink polish.

But when you wear tights AND booties, not sure Summer-izing is possible.

Did you know today is National Ice Cream Day?

Just look at all that deliciousness...

wearing: gap denim top, urban dress, thrifted belt, jessica simpson booties, essie polish in bachelorette bash
worn to: ice cream lunch at FENTONS CREAMERY

Blogger Confessions: Today was not as cold as it has been. It was in the low to mid 60's and I probably would have skipped the tights and boots if my toes were painted. Tee hee :)

I was looking forward to slightly cooler temps to bring out my semi-new Old Navy Jacket.
There's something about it that makes me feel tough.
And by something I mean the fatigue print, clearly.
On this day, the b/f and I spent our time in North Beach (San Fran).
The goal was to be amateur photographers and get a few good shots he could use in his new place.
I'm sure this one won't make the wall, but I like it :)

wearing: old navy jacket, bcbg tunic, f21 leggings, thrifted clutch, h&m sunnies, mia sandals
worn to: run the streets of san fran

98 degrees

I wore this last month on what had to be the hottest day of 2011 in NYC. I really wanted to get fancy and take some great pictures in the city, but I am not worth 2 cents when it's above 85. Hopefully the weather treats me better when I return in the fall.
A view of Manhattan from Queens!

wearing: h&m dress, nordstrom jewelry, mia sandals
worn to: run the hot, humid, crowded streets of new york city & the much calmer but equally hot streets of queens

80's baby

"This is real 80's. I like it!"

Those were the words out of my b/f's mouth as we rushed out the door to the Rihanna concert last week.

He said the red lips, and the big chain (his words not mine) and the leather jacket gave this look a real 80's feel.

I was going for more of a tribal look with this skirt, but hey I'll take the 80's...

wearing: kenneth cole "chain", j crew tee, zara leather jacket, skirt c/o eshakti, jessica simpson heels
worn to: rihanna concert
