Throwback Tuesday

homepage

Today Adam and I are celebrating our 3 year wedding anniversary. And with the exception of my purse, this is the exact outfit that I was wearing when I met him 6 years ago.* We were at work (casual ad agency attire) and he must have spotted me in my 1986 Zelda Nintendo gamer tee and relaxed bootcut jeans and known I was a keeper…  ;)

*the original bag was a blue pebbled leather Cynthia Rowley shoulder bag with a door latch closure – it was only retired after 2 years of service because of a fatal drink spill. RIP.

Gladiator Sandals… again.

homepage

As you already know, I frequent H&M and Forever 21… always hunting for bargains that look pricey. I think I made smart/successful purchases when I got this outfit (hat, top, shorts, sandals) – the sandals in particular.

Check out their website every few days if you’re really hoping to get them.

homepage

Today’s outfit is all about balancing proportions. This super-slim top is offset by the loose shorts, and the long hemline of the shorts (which can make legs look dangerously short) is offset by the lengthening heels. Throw on a cream blazer and it’s perfect for a casual Friday at work.

A Pop of Pattern

homepage

One of the things that I love about capes is that they provide some warmth, but show off just enough arm (crucial when you’re wearing a bold pattern and have colorful trim that you don’t want to hide beneath sleeves!). Today I let the geometric print take the lead amongst subtle black textures and little pops of colorful accents.

My Kind of Sweater Dress

homepage

When people talk about sweater dresses, I normally think of big, bulky, knee-length numbers that make you sweat and itch. Not this one. It’s skimpy, it’s scandalous… and it’s totally up my alley.  :)
