Belt: Ann Taylor, similar, similar
Shoes: Zara, similar
Earrings: Baublebar (here, here)
Bracelets: Baublebar (here, similar, similar, here)

I hope your week is going well!  I think I mentioned last week that things have been a little crazy around here recently.  It was all due to a big meeting at work last week (which went really well!).  Whenever I have a big meeting, I always like to wear something I know I feel comfortable and confident in, like a great dress and one of my favorite blazers.  The day of a big meeting is not the time to try out a new outfit or new shoes...  The hot pink of this blazer is so bright and I can't help but be in a great mood whenever I see it.  It's a small thing but knowing I look put together and everything fits well helps me focus on the important work of the meeting.

What do you do or wear to feel your best for a big meeting?

Have a great day!

Zara Leather Jacket







Jacket: Zara (under $100), similar, similar
Jeans: Rag & Bone
Purse: Old Navy
Shoes: Fendi, old
Belt: Loft, similar
Necklace: Zara, similar, similar
Earrings: Baublebar (here, here)
Bracelets: Baublebar (here, here, here)

I hope you had a great weekend!  Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments on Friday.  It is amazing what a good night's sleep and a little me time (i.e. reading, relaxing, and shopping) will do.  I'm sorry I left you on a low note on Friday, but I feel so much better and refreshed now.  Sometimes it is hard to remember that you have to set time aside to recharge, but I always feel so much better when I do.

Have you every bought something that you don't know how you lived without it before you found it?  Maybe that is a little extreme, but this jacket is totally that for me.  I was killing some time in Zara (I should know better by now) and walked by this jacket.  I almost didn't try it on, but a great leather jacket has been on my list for a while.  As soon as I put it on thought, it was love at first sight and I want to wear it with everything!  I swear it makes almost every outfit look better. I can't believe it was under $100!  I think I got the better end of the bargain, but I'm not complaining.  I'm going to warn you in advance that you will be seeing a lot of this jacket over the next few months.

Have a great day and thanks for reading!

In a Rut...

Happy Friday!!  Do you ever have those days or weeks when you just aren't inspired by anything in your closet and/or are just too tired to pull cute outfits together?  That was this week for me.  I'm looking forward to relaxing this weekend, going to Taste of Atlanta and maybe doing a little shopping.  I've pulled together a few items I've my eye on and hopefully a little bit of rest and relaxation will help bring the creative juices back. 

How do you guys reignite the creative juices when you get into a little bit of a funk about what's in your closet?

Have a great weekend!

Clutch: Clare V.
Booties: Fab'rik
Necklace: Boutique find
Earrings: Baublebar (here, here)

I hope your week is going well! I'm popping in for a quick hello as it has been a busy week at work trying to get ready for a big meeting this week.  

A leather skirt is one of those great fall basics that serves me year after year.  I updated my version this year with this pleated one from Banana Republic.  I've loved it ever since I first saw it in the new arrivals section there.  It is sold out, but I've linked to several similar skirts.  I can't wait to style it so many different ways, especially with a cozy sweater and tights!  

What are some of the fall basics that you always reach for?

Have a great day!

Floral Pencil Skirt






Jacket: Gap
Top: Target
Skirt: Fab'rik, similar
Shoes: Zara, similar
Earrings: Baublebar
Clutch: Old Navy
Necklace: Baublebar, similar
Bracelets: Baublebar (here, here), C. Wonder, old, similar

I hope you had a great weekend!!  It was an amazingly beautiful weekend here. 

A floral pencil skirt has been on my list for summer/fall ever since I saw this one on Piperlime.  Luckily, I found a great version at Fab'rik a few weeks ago.  I stalked waited patiently for another woman to put down the only one left in my size and promptly bought it.  I love it with just a simple t-shirt while it is still warm out, but I can see it transitioning into fall with booties and a chunkier knit given the skirt's darker color palette. 

Also, does anyone else think Old Navy has been killing it with some of their pieces recently?!  You know I loved the Old Navy bucket bags this summer, but this clutch is a great piece and a total steal!

Fall Wish List

Happy Friday!  What are you guys up to this weekend?  I'm giong to an early Halloween party so I have to pull together (or buy) a costume tonight.  Any suggestions??

As it has started to get colder, I've been pulling together my wish list for fall.  I'm excited for statement coats, cozy sweaters, and boots, which I think are the only real holes in my closet.  Holes is very loosely defined....

Have a great weekend!
