All That Jazz

So it has obviously been a minute but I still live, and get dressed, and all that jazz. Catching up with some outfits I wore over the last few weeks and which made it to Instagram, but not the ole blog.

First up, pretty in pink with a favorite dress (its actually navy w/flowers - looks like black and white polka dots from afar though).

Dress: LOFT (alternative)

And then there is this outfit, which for some reason made me feel more professional and pulled together than usual... and of course, it was my favorite color combo (white/gray/red), so....
Tee: LOFT (alternative)
Skirt: LOFT (alternative)
Shoes: Zara (alternative)

And finally, there is what I wore today - an embellished tee that has really carried me through the years paired with the classic combo of pencil skirt/cardigan.

Wrap it Up

Hello! It's a cold and breezy Spring morning which I am loving because the sweltering summer days are around the corner... keeping warm in my favorite (and only) wrap sweater and an off-center photo.

Also - this skirt is too short, isn't it? (gritting teeth emoji)
Sweater: Anthropologie (similar - cute!)
Skirt: J.Crew Factory (similar)
Shoes: Asos (similar)

Stitch Fix, Rediscovered.

So, you guys. I just re-discovered Stitch Fix.  I was an avid subscriber a few years ago, and some of my most beloved pieces to this day are ones I got from them.  There is something so fun about getting a surprise box of clothes, particularly since they are more often than not items that I would never pick out for myself.  Case in point - this blush blazer. I would never, ever, ever pick this for myself.  In fact, I am pretty anti-blazer in general. I love the look of them but find them uncomfortable and stiff and prefer cardigans.  But. This blazer.  Its a soft silky material, drapes in a lovely way, and has none of the stiff awkwardness I typically find with blazers.  Also, i always thought I coudn't pull off pastel colors but I actually think this one is working.

Pretty Pink Pleats

Pretty in pink and pleats! Stepping out of my usual skirt shape and color scheme with this pretty pink skirt that just made me want to spin around all day. Love.
Tank: Gap (similar)
Skirt: LOFT

Moody Floral

Work is decidedly less busy as of late (whew) so I spent a good portion of my day (more than I intended, in fact) watching the trial of a case that I worked up and which is being tried by my coworkers.  Noted that it was odd to be in court but not in a suit.

Also. I have been binge-watching the show Divorce lately (also Big Little Lies, which is flipping amazing but that is not relevant here), and have been loving the dark and moody color scheme of the show, in particular the use of patterns and florals.  Was inspired, therefore, to bust out this moody dark floral pencil skirt which is a bit winter-y for a (hot) Spring day, but oh well.
