last day!

Today is the last day before Rod & I go to Italy - I am crazy with excitement! Unfortch I have to be at work today, but I really love my ensemble. I made this skirt last night (when I should've been packing) with this awesome clearance fabric I found - only $3/yard. The whole outfit feels very schoolgirl, but in a good way.

skirt: Haute Hardware, cardi: AA, ruffle top: Club Monaco, boots: Frye, necklace: Early Jewelry, earrings: Michelle Chang

This will be my last post for a couple of weeks, but I'll have tons of pics to share when I get back. Ciao, bellas!

new shoes

I've been dying to try this brand of shoes, Chie Mihara, for a long time. I love their styles & I'd heard they're comfy as all get out, unfortunately I can't afford them until they're 50% off or more. And usually at that point my size is sold out, until this pair came along. And they ARE every bit as comfortable as I've been told, which is a bonus.

shoes: Chie Mihara, cardi: Trovata, tee: AA, jeans: Habitual, bag: Marnie Bugs, necklace: Paige Sargisson, earrings: Michelle Chang pyramid studs (Etsy)

And another outfit from Wednesday, just for fun:
dress: Diane Medak, shoes: Hype, necklace: Early Jewelry, earrings: F21
Happy Friday everyone!!

day & night

When it rains it pours - I have two outfits to share today. I based my daytime outfit around this skirt that I made in my Make class last week. I love the print, and the color palette makes me think outside the box a little bit. I get so caught up in black/grey/navy sometimes (see my next outfit) that I forget about how fun brown can be. Like with pink.

sweater: Banana Republic, skirt: by me, bag: Marc Jacobs, boots: Frye, tights: Givenchy, earrings: Haute Hardware

Then this evening we went out for dinner at one of my favorite spots, The Porch. I wanted to dress up a little bit & also use my new Goldenbleu clutch. Goldenbleu is going out of business which sucks, but it meant me getting this $$$ clutch for next to nothing, so there's the silver lining I guess.

top: Target Go collection, jeans: Levis, clutch: Goldenbleu, booties: Sofft, earrings: Kohl's, jacket (last pic): Michael Kors

first day!

I'm not so on the ball with my internets this week, having started my new job on Monday, but even though it's late I wanted to post my first day ensemble. This marks the start of more post-worthy outfits & more frequent outfit entries (I hope!).
