Quick Shots: Stripes of White

From On June 26, 2011

Sorry about the lack of quality in these photos, but I was in a rush and figured I’d snap some shots before I left. Wearing Forever 21 jeans (that have an amazing fit!), INC top, Pelle Moda heels, Andrea Brueckner bag and jewelry from J.Crew. Love the taupe and white with cognac colored pieces to finish it off.

Nails: OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques (One of my faves)

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.
