I hope everyone is having a great week! My new au pair has arrived from Slovakia, and we just finished a trip to the Social Security Office – it was actually a lot less painful than I had imagined. We were in and out in about 30 minutes – I highly recommend going to any government office first thing in the morning!
I want to talk sleeveless blazers today. Living in an extremely hot environment, the sleeveless blazer is an answered prayer for me. I love blazers because they have the ability to upgrade almost any outfit, but with temperatures in the high 80s (already) a blazer during the day is a bit much. Enter this clean and sleek blazer with an amazing color combination – black, blue and white in the back, allowing it to complete almost any outfit (I am also partial to the fun striped lining….) What started as a jeans and t-shirt day became more elevated with this simple addition.
I hope everyone had a good weekend! I am writing this entry as I am watching the finale of Downton Abbey and I do appreciate the entire series being tied with a bow (even the bow has bows). I feel very satisfied after six series. No spoilers here…
I spent the weekend enjoying the gorgeous weather and very casual attire. I found these kicks and my feet thank me every time I wear them. They are comfy and chic – a hard combination to achieve! It is a bit chilly in the morning – so I grabbed my favorite current jacket. I pretty much wear it everyday (seen here over a dress). The key to wearing kicks is to wear a slightly dressed up outfit and then bring it back to earth with the sneakers. High heels would have made this impossible to run around at the zoo…..you know I have tried that before and it didn’t go well.
I love my new romper from Banana Republic and I want to share another styling of it (previous styling here). My current love of marigold is still going strong (remember this chic marigold skirt here) and combining it with army green was just spot on perfect. It resulted in a casual chic outfit but the addition of the pegasus necklace and fringe stilettos made the outfit uptown chic.
I must confess this particular season at Banana Republic has been one of my favorites! I may have bought everything army green and marigold in the shop (I did).
I hope everyone is having a great week! We have been experiencing a slight temperature dip recently – perhaps the last hooray before the heat begins. I decided to use multiple layers and all my favorite cold weather items – blazer, leather leggings, button down and skinny belt.
