Leather and Leaves

Chambray Top {c/o LOFT} | Skirt {F21} | Jacket {LC Lauren Conrad} | Bag {Zara} | Mary Janes {Nine West} | Sunnies {Karen Walker} | Watch {Michael Kors} | Bracelet {Yurman} | Friendship Bracelet {DIY gift from Megan} | Cuff {F21} similar | Ring {H&M} similar |Manicure {OPI Axxium Lincoln Park After Dark} | Lipstick {NARS Carthage} | Leopard iPhone Case {J Crew}

I bet you are thinking… I have not seen that Forever 21 faux leather skirt anywhere before.  Well the reason it looks different is because I took the leather belt from my H&M faux leather shorts and tied it around the skirt. Sneaky sneaky, huh? The skirt just hit me in the wrong place and this was the best answer to setting the skirt just where I wanted it. I think it now looks darn good, if I do say so myself.

Also, if you cannot tell, I am mildy obsessed with my J Crew leopard case. Ok. Really obsessed. It is the perfect little change I needed to make me not want to go buy the iPhone 4S and be patient for the iPhone 5.

Indian Summer

If I could live in one ensemble all of fall it would be this one. Simple, comfortable and classic. When it starts to get a little cooler, add tights under the faux leather shorts and BAM… fall perfection. I can promise that you will see every single one of these pieces on me for many outfit posts to come.

I had a fabulous weekend full of football, wine, shopping and friends – all during one of the most perfect DC weather weekends I have witnessed in my three years here. What more could a girl ask for?

Just Another Manic Monday

It’s Monday, your coffee has not kicked in yet, you are running late and you are still trying to figure out what to wear. You want to look fabulous because you are meeting the girls for drinks after work but you can barely keep your eyes open to put on your mascara. What do you do?

You have heard me refer to color-blocking over and over again and some, if not all, of our favorite designers/stores are knocking this trend out for us all on one item. Talk about a perfect way to avoid the — about to leave the office to meet the girls, look into your office bathroom’s mirror and realize you hate what you are wearing — proof! Now you can throw on your uniform, add one item that will keep you up with the latest spring trend and add a punch of color to your manic Monday.

Wednesday Wish List: Easing Into Spring

Below are just a few things on the top of my wish list…

Delicate Demeanor Necklace {Francesca’s Collection}
This necklace is going to add a pop of color to absolutely anything I wear. This will be a great piece to ease in the bold bright spring colors into my wardrobe right away without being overwhelming.

Tassel front loafer by DV By Dolce Vita {Asos}
If you can’t tell I am dying to add some color to my dark winter blahs, so I have been looking for pieces that will add a pop of color to help ease me into, what I hope is very soon, spring weather. These are also just too friggin’ cute to pass up. Must own.

Narrow Leg Studio Trousers {Zara}
How do you say no to bubble gum pink trousers!? I can see myself in these today with a white button down, bright clutch, tan peep-toe pumps, statement earrings and my trench to keep me warm. Perfect ease into spring ensemble.
