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.

Pink and Green

Seattle summer has finally started, and we’ve been having some incredible weather. To kick off the sunshine post independence day, I paired a pink pencil skirt with a mint green top for work on Thursday.

Minnie and a Cropped Cardi

IMG_4434

My Minnie pants are definitely getting too big, so I need to schedule a trip to my tailor to see if he can take them in. Especially because I love them! I also realized that I’m severely lacking in cardigans. I’ll have to add them to my list for the upcoming Nordstrom Anniversary sale.

I paired my black Minnie’s with a white tee and purple cropped cardigan. I accessorized with my new watch, a statement long necklace, and finished the outfit with black platform peep-toe pumps.

I Need a Polo….

IMG_4216

Nick golfed growing up, and for our 3rd Christmas together, he bought me my first set of golf clubs.

We decided to get back into golfing more regularly than never, so went to the driving range on Sunday night, and then played 9-holes yesterday.

I wore my J Crew Minnie pants, but realized that I don’t have any cute polo shirts! (Or actually, any polos at all!) I kept it simple with a mint green tee (also from J Crew), and my oh so cute golfing shoes.

Pardon the hair flying everywhere!

Pants – J Crew Minnie, Tee – J Crew Vintage Cotton V-Neck Tee

April Clothing Purchases

With springtime in full force, I realized that my wardrobe is quite lacking for spring and summer clothes. I tried on this Trouve sleeveless draped deck top when I was at my personal shopping appointment at Nordstrom, and loved it, but not at full price. When I was at the store with Nick the other day and saw that it was on sale, I decided to pick it up!

I also hit J Crew this weekend for a few summertime essentials. J Crew is always hit or miss for me, but this weekend was definitely a hit. I realized that I don’t have any shorts or ankle pants (that aren’t denim) that fit at the moment, so I grabbed two pairs of the 3” chino short in khaki and dark grey, and the Minnie pant in stretch twill in black. The Minnie fits so well that I might need to grab another color or two.

I also got a few knit tops that can be dressed up or down. I love the length and colors of the Vintage cotton v-neck tee. I got mint green to layer over this Favorite tank in pink as well as the stripped version, Vintage cotton v-neck tee in bold stripe.

Finally, love the color of this great little Skinny leather belt. I’ll have to see how I can style it.
