Weekend and Work

IMG 5955

And I’m back! I’m in the progress of working on a new blog layout, but in the meantime, an update:

I’m now blonde! I decided to try out something crazy hair color wise, and go blonde! Took some getting used to, but really loving it so far.

On Sunday, I wore my new scarf from the Nordstrom half yearly sale, a cozy open cardigan from Lululemon, winder under leggings, and my Uggs. 

Today was a bit more dressed up, as we have a performance tonight.

I wore various shards of nude and brown, with black ankle pants from J Crew and black Cole Haan peep-toe heels. I did realize that I really need a pair of closed toe heels! I’m now on the quest.

Mint, Lace, and Stripes

One of my goals of this blog was to start pushing myself outside of my “fashion comfort zone.” I definitely went there today, and mixed both textures and patterns.

I paired my striped top with grey cropped pants and a mint green cardigan with lace sleeves.

Dressin’ it up style catch-up

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a chance to blog, but luckily I’ve still been snapping a few outfit shots. Here’s a catch-up of my more work-related outfits.

I love sheath dresses. They’re so versatile, and can easily be dressed up or down. I paired this simple black sheath with a leopard print scarf and black heels.

I posted about my yellow bubble necklace here, and I decided to wear my black one to work with a blazer. Ankle pants, heels, and a blazer dress up a simple white tee.

I love pink and was so upset when my hot pink J Crew skirt ripped, that I was lucky to find this option at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Can’t wait to pair it with black tights for fall!

Bubble necklace take 2! This time I dressed up my chambray shirt with a black pencil skirt, heels, and my black bubble necklace.

I was ridiculously sad about these shoes. I wore them for one day/night, and the soles started falling apart! Super surprising for Cole Haans! Luckily, they were purchased at Nordstrom, so I was able to return them.

Well, there you have it! 5 work outfits for catch-up!

Love my Leopard Shoes

I just love how a fabulous pair of shoes can take a simple pairing of khakis and a cardigan and make it an outfit.

I paired my khaki ankle pants with a white tee, blue cardigan, gold necklace (borrowed from my sister) with my Cole Haan leopard print heels.

We thought about going to see the Dark Knight Rises tonight, but ended up getting a refund on our tickets when we decided that we didn’t feel like waiting in line for over 3 hours to get decent seats.

College Pride

IMG_4542  IMG_4559

For “pride” day at work, we were encouraged to sport high school, college, or company attire. Since I’m a very proud Bruin, I decided to represent UCLA!

I paired my Banana Republic ankle pants with white wedges, and a UCLA tee with a white tank layered underneath. Simple and cute, the wedges dressed up the outfit, but still paired well with the tee.
