Street Stroll

From On November 30, 2010

It’s been a while since I did a blog. With Thanksgiving behind us and Christmas quickly approaching, now is the time to do one. I took these photos a little while ago. I guess it is safe to say that it was a lazy day and comfort was a major deciding factor in what I wore. These True Religions I got from an Urban Chic sample sale. They are way too long for me, but I didn’t want to get them hemmed only because I knew they would look great sweeping the floor over some sky-high heels. I was right. I love this look. The knit vest I got from Anthropologie months and months ago, but never wore it. I wasn’t exactly sure on how I wanted to wear it to be honest. I just had to have it because I loved the contrasting silk tie in the front. Very different from what you usually find in a store. I put a J.Crew boyfriend tissue tee under it and called it a day. The shoes you can’t even see, but they’re these crazy tall chocolate brown platforms from ALDO. You’ll definitely be seeing them in future posts. I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday and enjoy the ones to come!

Cable Knits, Silky Prints & Love

From On November 10, 2010

I recently ordered this silky, draped skirt from J.Crew and couldn’t wait to get it. I had seen it earlier in the season, but didn’t think it was worth $138. So I figured I’d keep my eye on it and snatch it up when it went on sale. Luckily it was still available in my size when it did. It arrived on my doorstep the other day and I couldn’t wait to wear it, but with what? I figured a light colored top and brown belt would be great. So I decided on this ivory colored sweater I got from Club Monaco when I was in Miami earlier this year. I actually have it on backwards. The deep V should actually be in the front, but I love an open back.

The soft leather belt (Pellemelle) I got years ago from Anthropologie, along with the cable knit tights. The big brass buckle on the belt is so big and really makes the belt unique. The brown color and the print on the skirt remind me of the colors I’m currently seeing outside. They go perfect together. Add my newest shoes from ALDO and it’s a done deal. While I’d much rather have worn no tights at all, it’s a little too brisk for bare legs at this point. Brown tights just wouldn’t have done it for me.

Oh! I can’t forget this gorgeous LOVE necklace I ordered on Etsy. It’s by a local designer and it’s my second piece from her. Check out her line of jewelry, Lanyapi Designs, here. The ring is also from J.Crew. It’s a great piece. Something else I think is great is this OPI nail polish in Do You Lilac It? Has to be one of my favorite colors that they’ve come out with.

Not Only For Men

From On November 3, 2010

Believe it or not, as much as I love wearing things that are feminine and flirty, I also love wearing things that are a bit more masculine. So here it is, menswear at it’s finest! The blazer is from Express and yes, it is a women’s blazer. The oxfords are from ALDO. I just had to have those. The sweater, however, is a men’s sweater from Banana Republic. They have such a great variety in a wide assortment of colors. Not to mention, they usually are somepart cashmere and are a perfect weight. I have quite a few of them. To finish off the look I went with some ripped ankle skinnies from Citizens of Humanity and a Marc By Marc Jacobs crossbody bag. Who says this look is only for men?

A Trip To Georgetown

From On November 1, 2010

Halloween weekend was lots of fun. It didn’t involve getting dressed up in a costume or spending time at festive parties. I basically hung out with my sister the entire time. Eating Halloween-inspired cookies and watching scary movies is just as much of a good time to me. We took a trip to Georgetown in hopes of not overspending. I think we made out ok. I saw a lot of things I’d love to have, but I’ve put my impulse shopping in check. So I ended up bringing home a scarf and a belt from Anthropologie. Sounds pretty simple, but they were both things I’ve been dying to have.

Striking Encounter Scarf

Striking Encounter Scarf

We all know that I’m a scarf fanatic (see here). For whatever reason, I’ve really been into black and white printed scarves. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the contrast in colors that’s got me hooked. I first saw this online and immediately knew that at some point I would be buying it. I also LOVED that it’s 100% wool. I’m a lucky girl in the sense that wool scarves do not make me itch. The fringe-detailing on each end, another great characteristic. Can’t wait to wear this!

Windmill Bow Belt

Windmill Bow Belt

I also found the Windmill Bow Belt online. I thought it was so chic with the black on navy coloring. And how feminine is the grosgrain bow? Ugh! I pictured this with an all black outfit and this belt to accentuate the waist. Can’t wait to test it out.

I was sooo lucky to find both of these in the Anthropologie at the Georgetown location. They usually never let me down, anyway. Expect to see them in future posts!
