Coachella Fashion Awards

Coachella, according to my Instagram and Twitter feeds: Celebrities come together in a desert to outdress each other’s hippie attire and lounge poolside at picturesque parties. Oh and I think there’s something about music, too.

Sunny Style

Today feels like the first truly spring day we’ve had. As I’ve been doing housework with the doors and windows open and Olli has been luxeriating in the sun, I’ve been daydreaming of permanently warm weather and its accompanying spring style.

from day to play

I find it can at times be difficult for a young professional to look young and professional at once. My biggest fear when I first joined the corporate world (this is very telling of me) was that I would turn into a dowdy, average dresser. I want to keep my personality in my clothes while still looking appropriate. Another challenge is often quickly changing from a work day to an evening play date a la happy hour or dinner with the girls.

So below are some tips for how to stay fresh, cute and professional from day to play.

[for play = take hair down + red lip]

[for play = change pants for dark skinny jeans + fun heels]

[for day = + black skinny pants, flats]

[for play = + chunky necklace, switch bag for clutch]

[for play = change into colored/patterned top + leather jacket]

[for day = + shrunken blazer]

What are your day to play tips? XO


hello, fall; hello, fashion

Day 12: I’m thankful that I’m financially blessed enough to be able to celebrate good news by going out.

Day 13: I’m thankful for an unexpected compliment today at the post office. Don’t those just make your day?!

FALL = fashion

I vow this year to take more risks in my fall wardrobe. So I’m sharing some inspiration for the season I hope to shamelessly steal from and make my own. My 2012 fall fashion advice = brights on bottom, nudes on top.

{mint!}

{best ombre}

{current fall obsession – Michael Kors Hamilton Artisan Tote}

{need more fur}

{burgundy + metal tip shoes = both hot fall trends}

{leopard, always}

{hat, yes yes yes}

{super bright, super cute – also, the shoes}

{chunky gold}

{glam + slouchy sweater = perfect}

What’s your fall style?
