My Not So Secret Addiction

I didn't even realize I was wearing pretty much head to toe J. Crew until I started doing this post. I noticed I had been buying a lot more in the last few years, but didn't realize how much of a collection I had amassed. Those constant 40% sales just KILL me {in a good way.}

So yeah. I have been a bad blogger. Very very very bad. If you follow me on Instagram {hint hint} you'd see my shameless selfies in front of the fake wood are still abundant. I'm moving on to a bigger position in my company and just haven't had much time any more-- but its a great change! I'm trying to get back on blogging bandwagon, so hopefully you'll forgive me.

Surfs Up

My love for all clothing made from neoprene knows no bounds, and this skirt is no exception. Its lightweight, but still holds it shape. Most magical of all of its properties though, you can spill wine on yourself and it doesn't leave a spot {not speaking from experience of course...}
T-shirt: J. Crew {so comfy I got it in black too}

Midi Mix Up

This is another fabulous oldie but goodie {and by oldie I of course mean a whole 2 years or so} that for some reason I hadn't worn in ages. I love the classic cut of it and ladylike length, while the contrasting patterns keep it from being too uptight.

Bracelet: C. Wonder {sadly not Hermes} // Nail Polish: Essie 'Mint Candy Apple

Closet Creations

I know I've been getting worse at blog posts lately. I could blame the summer, work, etc but really its only my bank account. In the interest of trying to be a grown-up and not buy EVERY SINGLE THING I WANT, I've been re-wearing oldies but goodies. Now, I can't really complain. Thanks to all of my previous shopping I have tons of options...but its just not as exciting. Nothing like a shiny new object to perk a girl up.

Its made me get more creative, which is a good thing. Plus, we all know when I say I'm behaving its not like I'm not shopping. I'm just not listing it as my sole extracurricular activity!

Fancy Friday

Paris Haute Couture AH 2014/15
{image}

Just because almost everything I have been wearing, wanting, and posting have been little white dresses, that doesn't mean I have forgotten my love for all things black. Even if I had actually forgotten, this outfit would have reminded me in less than a minute{after I picked my jaw up off the floor.} Its a showstopper-- from the perfectly placed long straight hair to the little triangle cutouts-- this is not something you see every day!
Unfortunately thanks to a few extra assets than her, its not likely I can pull this off, but its certainly got my craving black and drama again!

Looking forward to some wonderful girl time--which of course also means wonderful bubbly-- and finishing up Marisha Pessl's 'Night Film.' I started it at the beach and would have been done within a few days if it weren't for things like work. If you haven't read it, GO! Her first book, 'Special Topics In Calamity Physics' is fantastic as well.

Have a Great Weekend!!

Summertime Blues

Between going through vacation withdrawal {even though it was super short, it sure was sweet} and realizing that I have a million summer things with tags on and its already August...it seemed appropriate to break out this tunic and my silver sandals. To make it less beachy and more casual work appropriate, I threw on PANTS. Yes, I do actually own pants. Shocking I know....

Tunic: d.ra {on sale at Urban Outfitters!} // Pants: Frame Denim 'le Skinny de Jeanne'

Sunglasses: Karen Walker 'Super Duper' // Sandals: Sam Edelman 'Trina'

{sidenote: these are beyond comfortable. BEYOND}

Hot Pink Party

My love of Equipment tops goes without saying, though I still constantly say it anyway. Of course, its only natural that I'd feel the same about their dresses {and pajamas...which I covet and will one day make mine!} I bought this dress first in the pink...then in black... and then in camo. Usually if you keep your eyes open you can find it on sale, patience is a necessary virtue though. Aside from feeling as comfortable as pajamas, it makes getting ready a snap, and perfect for layering between seasons too.

So pretty much, the moral of this story is to go buy it now!

Dress: Equipment 'Naomi'

Jacket: Zara // Bracelet: Vintage // Necklace: Baublebar {old, try this or this}

LWD

After being off of work for almost a week, lets just say that this Monday was even tougher than usual! I could barely drag myself out of bed, let alone put two brain cells together to form an outfit. Thank goodness I hand't worn this dress yet-- it was perfect to throw on and felt as cozy as pajamas. While the LBD may be forever classic, the LWD has been my go to all summer long!

Dress: Old Navy {similar here too}

Earrings: Baublebar {similar}

Recycled

Everything comes back around in fashion sooner or later-- its like its 1995 all over again lately-- which is I of course hate to get rid of anything. My entire outfit is courtesy of my awesome Mom {ok minus the jacket, bag and shoes} over the years. I always look forward to treasures like these from my mom, she has such great and unique taste!

Jacket: Kulson // Dress: Marni {old but this is similar} // Belt: Vintage


{how incredible is this buckle?!}
