Outfit details: Theory cardigan (similar here and here), Equipment blouse (similar here), J Crew pencil skirt (similar here), Veronique Branquinho boots, Celine bag, Hermes scarf, Chanel necklace

Another day, another outfit.  This day, I was all in shades of grey. 

I also wore this super fun and sparkly wraparound bracelet (it kind of looks like a slinky when it's off) that was a fab Christmas gift.


Weekend Spoils (Shoes, shoes and more shoes)

This weekend I stopped into Saks and did a lap around the shoes on sale.  As luck would have it, there were a few pairs in my size at 40% off the sale price. 

 I got a pair of grey motorcycle boots that were Saks' own brand.  They'll be perfect for bopping around town on the weekends with leggings or skinny jeans. 

These pink and black Prada pumps are my fave.  I just love the pink toe and heel .

There have been several times getting dressed recently where I wished for a pair of navy shoes.  I have one pair but they are totally impractical and I needed something more versatile.  These navy suede Prada pumps fit the bill.

I think this is the first time I can remember walking away with each pair such a practical heel height.  These are certainly not my normal 4-5 inchers.  I think my feet will thank me!


Leather + Lace (and Happy New Year!)

Outfit details: Nicole Miller top, Talbots leather skirt, Spanx lace tights (get them here), Miu Miu boots (saw them on sale this weekend at Saks), Chanel bag (vintage Chanel here), Blumarine necklace, Terry Ross ring

I'm one of those people who has no interest in going out on New Year's Eve.  I go out so often that on New Year's, I'm happy to either stay home or have a low key night at a friend's place.  I ended up doing the latter for this new year and it was just perfect.  When one friend asked us all to reflect on the key moments of 2011, it made me realize that it's difficult to choose just one.  She prodded me to recollect a fabulous purchase or two (Lady Dior bag, anyone?).  But what matters not is the closet full of fabulousness that I certainly am lucky to have, but rather the moments I've spent with friends and family over the last year.  I am truly blessed to have the people near and dear to me and doubly blessed to have the resources to spend every fabulous moment that I get to spend with them. 

On to the outfit.  My low key evening in was still deserving of something fun and festive. I wore a Nicole Miller top/dress that I bought at a lovely boutique in the North End called Twilight.  I think it's actually a dress (though a short one) but I wore it as a top over my buttery leather Talbots skirt. 

Wishing you the most happy and healthy new year! 





Navy and Mustard

Outfit details: Trousers, shirt, sweater jacket - all J Crew, Stella McCartney bag, Nine West patent booties, J Crew necklace, Chanel pin

Remember how I wondered how to wear these J Crew cafe capris as it got colder (here)?  Well thanks to all the tips I've been able to pull it off.  Here I wore the mustard color J Crew trousers with a navy long sleeve t-shirt and a navy sweater jacket, both from J Crew ages ago.  The funny thing is, as it sometimes happens, I didn't realze that I was outfitted totally in J Crew until I started typing this. 

Happy new year to everyone!




Outfit details: Ann Taylor sweater, Banana Republic trousers, Stella McCartney bag, Maje booties (similar here), Hermes bangle. Louis Vuitton ring

After having had five days with no work,my first day back required something easy and this was it.  My sister gave me this cozy sweater from Ann Taylor that I layered over a long sleeve black T shirt with black trousers.  It was the perfect first day back to work outfit after a little break.  I can see I'm going to get a ton of wear out of this sweater this winter.
