I’ve always been a fan of drop waist skirts and dresses. When this skirt popped up on MAJOR sale at J.Crew a few weeks ago, I couldn’t let it slip thru my fingers. I love how it pairs perfectly with a silk tank but I also can’t wait to wear it with this J.Crew striped hoodie and my favorite converse sneakers.
Hope your week is going well, is it Friday, yet!?!
Sometimes a little bit of neon can go a long way with an outfit. Case and point with my denim tuxedo pictured above, adding a pop of neon yellow with my belt and flats adds a little bit of fun to what could sometimes be a boring outfit. How do you add fun to a basic outfit?
You may remember I wore this jacket with a LBD and heels a few weeks back and now I’m wearing it with distressed jeans and sneakers. I love a jacket that can go from day to night with only a few small changes. Hope your having a great week! Thanks for stopping by!
Since arriving in San Francisco, I’ve heard the phrase “light layers” quiet a bit. The weather in San Francisco tends to be chilly in the mornings and evenings but quiet warm during the day and afternoons. One way that people adjust the these changing degrees of temperatures (typical high in San Francisco is 65 degrees) is by dressing in light layers and always having a jacket. Coming from an area where temperatures never dropped below 65 degrees, the idea of constantly traveling with a jacket is still a novel concept to me. Do you like my light layers? Does I look like I’m adjusting? It’s definitely taking some time to adjust to these cooler temperatures.
One of the things I love most about lace tops is that they can easily be dressed up or dressed down depending on the bottoms of my choosing. Today, I wore my new top with distressed jeans but tomorrow, I think I might pair it with this fun fit and flare skirt from J.Crew (which is also 30% off thru Tuesday with code WEEKEND).
Hope everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day, but please remember to honor our troops!
Sometimes all you need to do is throw on a vest to spice up a dress. This Karen Kane motorcycle vest adds a little something extra to my favorite Joie dress. Makes my outfit look rough and rugged, don’t you think? Have you added a motorcycle vest to your wardrobe yet?
Since moving to San Francisco, I’ve had to adjust to temperatures being slightly cooler than in Dubai (SF temperatures average at 65 where Dubai averages at 80). I have been wearing jeans more than dresses and flat/sneakers more than sandals. I have also started always traveling with light layers to adjust to the temperature changes between afternoon highs and evening lows. Maybe in a few months my blood will start to thicken and I won’t be so cold… till then my jean jacket has become my new best friend.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a Happy Mother’s Day to grandmas, moms, soon to be moms, and someday moms.
This past weekend LJF, little LJF and I traveled back to Wisconsin to have little LJF baptized in the church we were married in by the priest who married us. It was a fun weekend as none of our family in Wisconsin had met little LJF yet.
When planning my outfit for little LJF’s baptism I knew I wanted to wear a dress that was bright, colorful and spring like. This floral dress from Cynthia Steffe seemed perfect for the occasion. This is my second floral purchase for the season and I see a few more in my future including this skirt and this dress.
