Jun 18, 2013

Necklace: Spring Signs Necklace ($38)

From Left, Sunglasses: Ray Ban Cat’s Eye Sunnies ($150) Bracelet: Cut Geo Cuff ($9) Bag: Zara Bowling Bag ($70) Shoes: Nine West Drusilla Pump ($79) Top: Iris and Ink Silk T-Shirt ($95) Skirt: Tibi Isosceles Print Skirt ($175)

From Right, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Aviators ($155) Ring: Gabriel Artigas Ring ($198) Bag: Blumarine Shoulder Bag ($79) Shoes: Sandal with Ankle strap ($49) Top: Otte Chloe Top ($252) Pants: J.Crew Scout Chino ($50)

For Casual Monday.  This skirt isn’t for everyone, but I’m trying to branch out a bit with my wardrobe and pull a few great pieces that are a little outside my comfort zone.  Plus, I love the mix of grey, black and citron.  If you like the idea of a geometric print, but want something a bit safer, try this black and white pencil skirt.

I like the monochromatic look of pairing a grey blouse with a grey-accented necklace.  And this blouse from Iris & Ink, with its basic shape and variety of colors, will quickly become a wardrobe staple.  If you’re looking to spend a bit less on the blouse, I love this punchy coral silk t-shirt for $69.

Forever21 has some great bracelets right now.  This cuff picks up the triangle pattern in the skirt, but I also love this chunky hinge cuff and this awesome layered cuff.  And if you like the open-work bracelets that are trendy right now, this simple bracelet is $7.

Need help keeping your cheaper jewelry pieces looking new?  Spray them with clear coat from Krylon to prevent them from wilting on you.

To complete the outfit, I added a simple pair of round pumps and a basic bowler bag.  Zara has some great handbags right now with basic shapes and colors that aren’t boring, so give them a look if you’re in the market.

For the hair, I would wear it down.  Wearing it up might be too severe with such a bold, printed skirt.  For the makeup, I would keep it simple with a natural looking lip color (shade 003) and some black liner.

For Casual Friday.  I don’t wear pants very often.  And I haven’t owned a pair of chinos since 2005, but I would buy these pants tomorrow if I wasn’t taking a little break from shopping.  Slightly longer than a capri with a bright, summery color, I think they’re a great choice for cooler climates or chilly offices.

Otte makes the greatest blouses.  I love all of them.  This is their Chloe blouse, but I also ardently endorse their Alex top, their Momo blouse and their Sophie top.  They’re not cheap, but if you like silk blouses, you’ll get your wear out of these great basics.

How great is this tote?  It’s the perfect casual work bag, and $79?  Awesome.

I bought these sandals from Zara in gold last summer and wore them to death.  They weren’t super comfortable for long distances, but for every day wear, a good choice.  Plus, the covered toe makes them a good choice for the office.  I bought these Maiden Lane sandals from Gilt as replacements.

I added some aviators (my fave) and a classic dome ring to complete the look.  If you’d like a less-expensive alternative, try this pyramid dome ring or this absolutely fab two-tone, hammered ring from Chico’s.

For the hair, I would wear it in a low side ponytail or a down and wavy.  For the makeup, I’d wear a pink gloss, some grey nail polish (Essie Smokin’ Hot is my new favorite) and a pop of pink blush on the cheeks.

    I like that skirt. It looks a little wild but I think it’s something that you’d find yourself reaching for constantly, probably into early fall.

  3. Alaina says:

    Loooove the sandals, but they’re sold out in my size. Boo 🙁

  4. Kate says:

    Has anyone bought anything from the Iris & Ink brand? They seem to be made of good materials, I just wanted to know if anyone had a good experience with them or think they are worth the money and will last.

      I have two shirts from them and a dress. Very happy with the quality. Good fabrics. Good stitching. Not cut short to save money like so many tops these days.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
