Take II: Multi-Seasonal Whites

by - Thursday, November 15, 2018
The last time I wore this pink sweater + white ankle pants combo, I dressed it up for an office appropriate look. Today's version falls on the other end of the spectrum. This look is completely casual, and most importantly, comfortable -- perfect for casual Fridays or running errands.

Subtle Peplum & Marled Knit

by - Saturday, November 10, 2018
I think my obsession with Meghan Markle is pretty apparent now. I've loved her since her early Suits days; and now that she's in the spotlight practically every day, my interest has grown exponentially as well. I give her 100% credit for bringing the boatneck-style neckline to my attention. I wouldn't have given it another glance otherwise. It's such a feminine look, especially paired with the peplum hem of this top.

Hunter Green & Berry Suede

by - Saturday, November 03, 2018
As the weather cools, I become lazier at "completing" outfits with jewelry. Partly because they'd be hidden underneath layers; and other times it's due to the abundance of cold weather accessories for warmth. What today's look lacks in bling, I made up for it with colorful accessories -- berry suede bow pumps and smooshy cognac leather purse. Can I just say that I've carried this purse the entire past week and the leather still smells amazing. While minding my own business at work, I would randomly get whiffs of the leather from about 3 feet away.

Fall Work Style - Pink & Neutrals

by - Tuesday, October 30, 2018
How quickly the leaves change! Just compare today's look (photos taken this morning) vs. the posts from last week. In the span of one week, leaves are now a solid reddish-orange -- simply gorgeous. I need to stop rushing into work in the mornings and remember to stop, breathe in the crisp autumn air, and enjoy the colors while they last.

On a random note, see that car in the background? I assumed it was empty because I couldn't make out silhouettes when I glanced over. So I went about my business and started setting up for photos. Then out of nowhere, I heard the engine start and literally jumped a foot in the air because the noise surprised me so bad. Part of me wished I was already in the midst of photo taking -- the outtakes would've been hilarious.
