A Couple Days Late

Reiss jacket, Balenciaga bag, Jimmy Choo shoes

I had to gussy up today for a meeting at work with a bunch of buttoned up suit types so I wore this Ann Taylor polka dotted and pleated skirt that I just love.  I paired it with a red Zara top and white Reiss blazer.

J Crew necklaces, Zara top, Ann Taylor skirt

I was halfway through the day before I realized that I was in patriotic red, white and blue just a couple days late for the 4th of July holiday.

Fall Colors

Despite being in the height of summer, a few things this weekend geared me up for fall.

 Chanel graphite and peridot nail polishes

I spent the long weekend in Florida which always requires a stop into Nordstom's at the Gardens Mall.  During my walk through the makeup area I was smacked in the face with this iridescent green gold Chanel nail polish called Peridot.  And since I was there I also picked up Chanel's sparkly graphite polish.

 

St. John jacket

I then took a quick lap around Saks to check out some of the sale items.  Honestly, I'm not the best sale shopper.  I never seem to have the patience to comb through the sale racks but on this trip, this St. John jacket practically jumped out at me. 

 

How could I pass up the tulle covered pearl embellished details for a deep discount?

Miss Independent

Ann Taylor top, Sara Campbell skirt, Cambridge Satchel bag

In an ode to Independence Day, I dressed to the beat of my own drummer.  Instead of the expected red, white and blue, I opted for pink, white and green.  Go figure.

Pour la Victoire sandals, Sequin Palm Beach necklace

I pulled this pink and green Sara Campbell embroidered skirt from my closet that hasn't been worn in a year or so.  I paired it with an Ann Taylor floaty white top (from year's ago) that was perfect for this hot summer's day and gave it an extra punch with a fluorescent pink Cambridge Satchel bag.

I hope you all had a great weekend!

I Love Ruffles!

Lavia eyelet top, RED Valentino skirt, Michael Michael Kors cardi

Do you ever find something in your closet that you had totally forgotten about but you just love?  That's what happened to me when I got dressed on this morning.  I got the ruffly RED Valentino skirt last summer and it was one of my very favorite things to wear and here it is now in it's first appearance this summer.

J Crew necklace, Hermes bangle, Stuart Weitzman sandals

Plus I got this eyelet Lavia top at Saks on sale last summer and it too made regular appearances in my summer wardrobe.  So when I pulled these two things out this morning, I was doubly happy.  And can I just say how much I adore these sandals?  They remind me of the woven Pradas that I've seen but for a much smaller pricetag.  Add that to the fact that there was a mini emergency in my office today which required me to trot down 30 flights of stairs in these babies and they are one of my more comfortable pairs of heels.
