I don’t wear many mini skirts. But I did make an exception for this one when I saw the unique asymmetric color blocking and the eye appliqué. And, it is surprisingly versatile – it can be worn on cooler days with tights, boots, and a sweater or during the summer with a cute tank and sandals.
Hi! I hope you all had a very happy Thanksgiving! I certainly had my fill of stuffing and pie, so to keep myself from feeling too guilty, I make an effort to get out for quick workouts when I have 10 (or even 5!) minutes to spare. My go-to 10 minute workout consists of a few 10 second sprints, lunges, leg lifts, crunches, and of course stretching before and after. And I you’re like me and mostly have capri-cut leggings/workout pants, I also wear knee high or over-the-knee socks to cover up since it can be pretty chilly in the morning. No need to buy full length pants!
This $20 tiger sweater caught my eye a few weeks back. I wanted to play up the aggressive print, so I threw it on with a super distressed pair of relaxed jeans to keep it edgy. Now I am comfy, cozy, but totally ready to tackle the rest of this week!
I should have worn a red, white, and blue ensemble. Or I should have worn red, white, and blue outfits leading up to today. If only I could pick up my phone and get Ralph Lauren to dress me…
Now that I find myself on my feet all day running around after my daughter, I really think about the comfort of my shoes every morning as I get dressed. Can I wear them all day? Might I kill myself on stairs? Etc. Needless to say, when I find a pair of shoes that are cool and all-day ready, I am very, VERY pleased.
Saturday night, Mr. Forstadt and I had an event at the Ace Gallery in Beverly Hills. Rather than opting for a LBD, I wore a frilled sleeve bodysuit and pants… even better, they were super budget-friendly and cost less than $45 combined! I paired them with some Target heels, a thrifted vintage clutch, and a layered lariat necklace to break up the black!
Gingham is just the ultimate summer pattern. You can practically wear your picnic cloth and still look perfectly daytime chic because it really is that effortless and easy to wear.
A few work meetings and then I’m off to run some errands before skipping town for my bestie’s wedding!
