The Skirt

One perk of my (newish and amazing) job is the casual setting but I’ll be honest that I miss dressing up a little. I can’t remember the last time I wore a skirt. But the holidays are coming up and I should make an excuse to dress up a little…even if it’s just out to dinner with my girlfriends. These girls are doing it right, with added volume, texture, and color. Totally making me want to leave my jeans at home!

Fall in Black & White

I’ve been living in neutrals recently. Cozy gray sweaters, black leggings with leather accents, an occasional leopard print, studded loafers, fluffy cream scarves. When life is crazy and you’re just running from meetings to events to dates to dinners to, it’s just easier. Simple. Chic. And surprisingly cozy. It doesn’t have to be boring one bit. A few of my current faves….

Spring It On

One of the little tasks I want to complete while on my mini vacation is organizing my online life a bit…grouping blogs together in my reader, starting some twitter lists, making sense of some pinterest boards that are now over three years old, etc. As I’m separating out my style board into seasons (OCD much? yeah, you’ve done it too) I’m becoming more and more excited for spring. Brighter colors, no more coats, fresh air, lighter layers. I’m so ready. Spring it on.

Feeling Full for Fall

While flipping though some old magazines this week, I came across this photo from Marie Claire in March 2009 that I instantly was drawn to a second time. Bright full skirt, graphic tee, pop of pattern, a red lip, and baubles. This could easily be my early fall uniform.

I often shy away from full skirts because I think they look best with heels, and let’s be honest, how often do I actually wear those? But a full skirt is just so ladylike and these below are such eye candy. I love the idea of pairing them with a tee and structured blazer or cropped suede jacket. And the gold sequined one? I die. Can you pick a favorite?

Salt Lake Style

I’m heading to Salt Lake City today for a work conference. While I’m ready for spring in DC, I guess I’ll have to embrace the winter weather again for this weekend. My uniform will pretty much be skinnies, a loose blouse, cardigan, short chunky boots, and of course my faux fur vest. I just can’t get enough of this perfect furry, fun accent. It’s probably the only reason I want it to stay cold out there…
